    Somewhere in the cobwebs of memory, I vaguely recall that the Pope declared that the Jews were not responsible for the death of JC way back in the 1950s.

    This is, I think, merely a reiteration of that pronoucement (or was it more correctly termed a Papal Bull?...not sure)

    I love John Stewarts take on the issue of Jews and the death of JC

    "My family isn't responsible. They were out of town that weekend for the holidays."

    There is only one person responsible for the death of Jesus Christ: Jesus Christ. He laid down His life voluntarily.

    It's absurd, Orthodox church has already condemned pope declarations.

    Both NT and Talmud recognize that jews were responsible:

    "On the eve of the Passover Yeshu was hanged. For forty days before the execution took place, a herald went forth and cried, 'He is going forth to be stoned because he has practised sorcery and enticed Israel to apostacy. Any one who can say anything in his favour, let him come forward and plead on his behalf.' But since nothing was brought forward in his favour he was hanged on the eve of the Passover"-Sanhedrin 43a.


    In New Testament it was explicitely stated:

    " For you, brethren, became imitators of the churches of God in Christ Jesus that are in Judea, for you also endured the same sufferings at the hands of your own countrymen, even as they did from the Jews, - who both killed the Lord Jesus and the prophets, and drove us out. They are not pleasing to God, but hostile to all men,"
