If messianic Jews were seeking to court controversy, they certainly found the most provocative way of doing that – releasing a video depicting Jesus bearing the cross just as he is about to be sent to the gas chambers at Auschwitz.

A new video commissioned by Jews for Jesus has gone viral on the Internet and is already causing a stir. In it, Jesus is among a group of Jews who are about to be sent to their deaths in the Nazi camp in Poland.

The clip, which Jews for Jesus uses as a means to illustrate that “Jesus also died for you,” is a three-minute long film that appears to be an effort to appeal for more membership in the messianic organization.
