CONCLUSION Chapter 18 of Who Crucified Christ by Ogden Kraut
Behold, here is the agency of man, and here is the condemnation of man; because that which was from the beginning is plainly manifest unto them, and they receive not the light. And every man whose spirit receiveth not the light is under condemnation. (D & C 93:31)
Most people have thought that all the Jews were guilty of the death of Christ, but we have pointed out that many Jews were not involved in His crucifixion, and some were even believers in Jesus as the Christ. In fact, most of the early Christians were Jews. Thus, there were “good” Jews and “bad” Jews.
This is substantiated in the scriptures, i.e., Jeremiah. In a vision or dream the Lord showed Jeremiah two baskets and then asked him what he saw in those baskets. “I said, Figs; the good figs, very good; the evil, very evil, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil.” (Jer. 24:3) The Lord then explained that those two baskets of figs represented the house of Judah.
For I will set mine eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them again to this land: and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them up.
And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the Lord: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart.
