Known as the founder of Western theology and the father of Latin Christianity, Tertullian of Carthage (AD 155 - 240) was a prolific early Christian author and polemicist against heresy.
In this work he proves to the Jews that the Messias expected by the prophets can be no one else but Jesus Christ.
This key work is especially pertinent in view of Jorge Bergoglio’s numerous pronouncements in recent years that Catholics should not try to convert Jews to the faith of Christ.
This is, of course, directly contrary to the words of Jesus to His apostles at His Ascension, where He told them that “you shall be witnesses unto me in Jerusalem and in all Judea” (Acts ch 1, v 8) and in Mark (ch 16, v 15-16), telling them: “Go ye into the whole world and preach the Gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptised shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall be condemned.”
