Interfaith dialogue ca.1172

My mother had the Oath of Maimonides framed for me when I qualified as a doctor. It came as something as a shock to discover the words he uses regarding Our Blessed Lord in the Epistle to Yemen:

You know that the Christians falsely ascribe marvelous powers to Jesus the Nazarene, may his bones be ground to dust, such as the resurrection of the dead and other miracles...

Remember that next time anyone brings up the Good Friday Prayers and "Oremus pro perfidis judaeis"
