In the Jewish rejection of Christ we see the full flowered expression of Judaism as a false religion at war with God. In the rejection of the Messiah they embraced, as a people, the role of the social order revolutionary who chooses chaos in hopes that order might come. Wherever you see the acts of the social order revolutionary (The French Philosophes, The Russian Bolsheviks, The 1848’ers, the Abolitionists, the Alinskyites, etc) there you see once again the religion or Spirit of Judaism raising it’s hoary head and there you see played out once again the act of metaphysical rebellion with its insistence that man will de-god God and enthrone himself as god.
Consider how the Scriptural text points to this idea as Judaism confirmed its cosmic revolutionary position by choosing Barabbas — the Revolutionary — over the Logos, the one, and that which provides order to all things. Together they cried out, “give us Barabbas, give us Barabbas,” and that cry has continued to be uttered throughout history by the practitioners of Judaism and by those who have the Spirit of Judaism. In the choice of Barabbas, the Jewish faith revealed a streak that throughout history has chosen the Revolutionary over people’s who cast their lot with Christ.
Judaism thy name is revolutionary.
In light of this historical fact it is a marvel that much of Christianity seems to believe that Christianity and Judaism serves a common god. Nothing could be further from the truth. True Judaism was first expressed in the garden when Adam abdicated his role as God’s steward and entered into league with Satan against god. Ever since that time Judaism has continued its warfare against the God of the Bible and against His Messiah, and against His people. Combining the idea of Judaism and Christianity, such as we often find in the term, “Judeo-Christian,” is an abomination that seeks to combine Christ with Antichrist.
We rejoice when Jews convert to Christ and call them “Brother,” but Judaism as a religion, like all anti-Christ religions is a gutter religion which leaves in its wake death, destruction, and untold hardship. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and do so by praying that God would open the eyes of all people, including the Jews, to vileness of that religion which Christ referred to as a “Synagogue of Satan.”

Your point about Barabbas is superb. I’ve never seen that connection made before. Great post!
