Rev. Dr. William Frederick Arndt (1880-1957)

The following appeared in Lehre und Wehre V. 75 (1929) p. 154:

The Crucified Jew. Who Crucified Jesus? By Max Hunterberg. Block Publishing Co, New York.

The author of this little book is obviously a Jew. His goal is to prove that it was not the Jews who were responsible for the crucifixion of Jesus, but Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor. All Christians who read their Bible know what the true facts are. Furthermore, the book is completely based on radical Bible criticism. For example, when the author writes (p. 73), “Not a line of His life was transmitted to us from any of His disciples who loved Him and toiled with Him,” we know where he got this “wisdom,” namely from the camp of critics who still call themselves Christians but deny the truthfulness of the Scriptures. A[rndt].

So far Dr. Arndt. Walther predicted this state of affairs back in 1880.
