Crucifixion of the Jews: Book 2

Historian Wellhausen on Jesus

“Jesus was not a Christian: he was a Jew. He did not preach a new faith, but taught men to do the will of God; and, in his opinion, as also in that of the Jews, the will of God was to be found in the Law of Moses and in the other books of Scripture.”1


Julius Wellhausen (May 17, 1844 – January 7, 1918) was a German

biblical scholar and orientalist, noted particularly for his contribution
to scholarly understanding of the origin of the Pentateuch (the first five books of the Bible).
