Joseph Wolff (1795 – 2 May 1862), Jewish Christian missionary, was born at Weilersbach, near Bamberg, Germany. He travelled widely, and was known as the Eccentric Missionary, according to Fitzroy Maclean‘s Eastern Approaches. He published several journals of his expeditions, especially Travels and Adventures of Joseph Wolff (2 vols, London, 1860).
Appropriately, jew Joe’ Wolff…(in sheep’s clothing)… invented the term “Judeo-Christian”.
The earliest use of the term “Judeo-Christian” in the historical sense dates to 1829 in the missionary journal of Joseph Wolff, and before that as “Judeo Christian” in a letter from Alexander M’Caul dated October 17, 1821. The former appears in discussions of theories of the emergence of Christianity, and both are used with a different sense from the one common today. “Judeo-Christian” here referred to Jewish converts to Christianity.
The term “Judeo–Christian” did not gain popularity, however, until after The Holocaust in Europe. Reacting against the anti-Semitism of Nazi Germany, European and American commentators sought to redefine Judaism as integral to the history of The West.The term has since been used as part of American civil religion since the 1940s to refer to standards of religious ethics said to be held in common by Judaism and Christianity, for example the Ten Commandments or Great Commandment.
Christian Zionism has evolved and the Jewish State can count on Christian Zionists to follow their lead–no matter how criminal the Israeli’s actions.
