David Brickner Retraction
In the May edition of Real Time I wrote a review of the book Why the Jews Rejected Jesus” by David Klinghoffer. In that review I stated, “Klinghoffer wrongly attributes a statistic to the second century church father Origen–claiming that Origen noted there were fewer than 144,000 Jewish believers in Jesus in Israel by then. However, Origen said precisely the opposite.” Actually, David Klinghoffer was right about Origen’s quote. I relied on the word of a friend of mine who is a scholar of Second Temple and early Church History. He got it wrong and so did I. My apologies to Mr. Klinghoffer and to our readers.
