Arthur Dinter Claims to Have “dejudaised” the New Testament


The NEW TESTAMENT, free from all Jewish influence, is the latest invention of the German anti-Semites in their fight to rid themselves of all Semitic elements in their political and religious life.

Arthur Dinter, the well-known anti-Semite, who tried in a book published recently to “throw light” upon the TALMUD has accomplished this marvelous work. He claims to have been able to “dejudaise” the NEW TESTAMENT on the basis of the original Greek text which he has translated into German. He widely advertises the book in the press, stating that he has been able to omit, what he calls, the Jewish and dogmatical falsifications. The anti-Semitic press claims that the Jews are exerting pressure upon the Government to have the book legally prohibited.
