Woman Bishop Argues Against Bill to Ban Old Testament

Download PDF for this date

The Berlin woman Bishop Shreiber takes sharp issue in an article with Dr. W. Frick, the Thuringia minister of education, for his law that would prohibit the teaching of the Old Testament in Thuringian schools because of its Hebraic spirit.

Bishop Schreiber points out that the Old Testament Jews gave the world the basis for its religion namely Monotheism and the ten commandments. Hence she believes that the Jews belong to the united front of religion and are opposed to the anti-Christ.
