    is nothing new. It has been going on since St. Augustine invented 'replacement theology' at the end of the fourth century. Of course, 'replacement theology' has been proven wrong many times over. Everybody with the sense that God gave a titmouse recognizes that the vast majority of the Jews of Jesus' time favored Him over the doctrines of the Chief Priests, Scribes and Pharisees. It was their envy that lead to the crucifixion. The average Jew of that tiem would have marvelled at anyone who could feed five thousand men from two fish and five loaves of bread not to mention giving sight to the blind, restoring hearing and speech to the deaf and dumb and raising the dead. What's not to like? His purpose on Earth was not to judge people at that time but to become a sacrifice for all humanity once for all time. Since God is omniscient, it might be argued that He had seen the destruction of the Temple and the end of the Sacrifices of atonement because the altar would be destroyed also. And, He provided a suitable blood covenant/sacrifice to be the atonement for sin until the end of the age. The Jews of that time certainly had the right to choose not to throw in with the Temple crowd, but it was necessary that someone do the dirty work because without the crucifixion there would have been no sacrifice and without the sacrfice there would be no salvation or atonement for the intervening 2000 years. Jews are the vine; Christians are just the branches that have been grafted in. There is no reason for any name calling by anyone.
