On the line to Belsen- A Gospel is redrafted

 

The Jews? At first just noises off casting stones

At their Messiah…yes I know he never claimed to Be but alter that and change sedition to blasphemy.

 

We need a Gentile Jesus, meek and mild- at least

While Rome’s still got Masada fresh in mind.

 

Pilate? I know…best make him a just man.

No, better, almost kind and have the Jews accept Willingly the collective guilt of Deicide.

 

Invent some custom; no-one will check.

 

I know our emphasis is re-arranged

But our purpose is conversion.

 

No harm in that.
