The Palestinian Authority (PA) plans to modify history by modifying classical art, in an exhibit it commissioned to show Pope Francis during his visit to Bethlehem next Sunday, which presents Jesus as a “suffering Palestinian.”

The Palestinian Museum arranged exhibit features an array of collages mixing classical paintings of Christian art with photographs of what are to be taken as “oppressed” Palestinians. […]

One work on the display is a modification of Raphael’s “The Deposition” (1507), which depicts the dead Jesus being brought to his tomb. The PA version weaves in a wounded Arab man being carried away as an IDF soldier supervises. …

Maybe they’d like to show it with a timeline of events. The arrival of the first islamderthals can be at the far end of the room.

One hopes one isn’t guilty of sacrilege if one wonders aloud whether this new Pope might not be just a little... batty?

“Suffering Palestinian”? I think that maybe it’s Goliath, not Jesus, they are thinking about.

Francis can teach the Palis that Jesus Christ died for them too, suffering for their sins and the sins of all mankind.

I’d love to see their conversion.

Given their Koran’s statements about “Isa bin Maryam”, it’s a wonder that they are acknowledging that Jesus was crucified at all, when the Koran said otherwise (“only a likeness of that was shown to them” per Sura 4:157).

So Jesus was a “Palestine” Jew?

Jesus preached Love and doing God’s will.

If they would follow Him, then we would all live in a more peaceful world.

You don’t want to be standing in the same line as them on the Day of Judgment!

Not the Jesus of the Koran. He preached submission to Allah.

Everyone knows Jesus was a Muslim, suffering under Jewish persecution.

A shahid.

Francis is emulating his namesake. The Palis are loved by God as much as he loves everyone else.

God loves each soul as if that soul was a singular creation in the universe. Each person is a unique
spark never to be seen again.

That’s the horror of abortion.

Let’s pray Francis can reach them through the grace of God.
