Brian Holtz's Egregious Historical Error

Holtz falsely claims that Jesus preached "exclusively for Jews." [@] Jesus preached for Samaritans [Jn 4], Romans [Lk 7:1-10], Canaanites [Mt 15:22-28], and Greeks [Josephus, Antiquities]. He repeats this falsehood all over his debates. Holtz's Mt 15:24 citation is based on a misunderstanding of how Jesus' priority was to evangelize Jews but He was willing to reward faith wherever it was found.

[@] = laughable, inexcusable blunder
