Of course the first Christians were persecuted by the Jews that stayed faithful to Judaism.<quoted text>
Early Christians were persecuted for their faith at the hands of both Jews from whose religion Christianity arose and the Roman Empire
The Christians were claiming that the religion of the Jews was evil and vile and offensive to "god."
What would those ex-Jew Christians expect of the Jews that stayed faithful to Judaism BUT TO BE persecuted???
Observe how defensive YOU are to anyone DARING to insult your Catholic religion, and then maybe you will WANT to understand why the Jews persecuted those Christians.
