Jews for Jesus explains why the organization made this film:
Below are the key points we wanted to get across in the film as well as a more expanded explanation.
Jesus has often been wrongly associated with the perpetrators of the Holocaust. In reality, He is to be identified with those who were the victims. As a Jew, if He were in Europe at the time, Jesus may well have suffered the same fate of the six million who perished in the concentration camps.
Jewish teaching promotes the idea that the death of Jews in the Holocaust accomplished kiddush ha Shem, the sanctification of God’s name. How much more then, the Bible tells us, Jesus’ death was intended by God for kiddush ha am, the sanctification of the people. Through Him we can be made right with God. (See Hebrews 13:12)
