An Israeli religious school apologized for burning a copy of the New Testament earlier this month. The New Testament burned reportedly was given to a pupil by a Christian missionary. “The intentions were not to criticize Christianity, but only to tell these Jewish boys they don’t have to listen to the missionaries,” said a spokeswoman for the Orot school near Beit Shemesh.
