(CHARISMA NEWS) — The Vatican's Commission for Religious Relations with Jews released a comprehensive document on Catholic-Jewish relations on December 10 which calls on the Catholic Church to "neither conduct nor support any specific institutional mission work directed towards Jews."
David Brickner, executive director of Jews for Jesus, finds their position "...egregious, especially coming from an institution which seeks to represent a significant number of Christians in the world."
Brickner went on to say, "How can the Vatican ignore the fact that the Great Commission of Jesus Christ mandates that his followers are to bring the gospel to all people? Are they merely pandering to some leaders in the Jewish community who applaud being off the radar for evangelization by Catholics? If so, they need to be reminded that they first received that gospel message from the lips of Jews who were for Jesus.
