OUR AUTHOR, CECIL ROTH, WAS BORN IN ENGLAND IN 1899. This writing was published in 1959 by Identity Christianity. He was considered an emanate Author of Jewish extraction. In these two books are his version of the history of those people in Spain and Portugal called ‘Marranos’, these who were ‘Secret Jews’. He traces them to other countries of Europe as well as into the New World.
We have learned in our studies of the old books, that as those who were in charge of the Temple in Jerusalem and their brethren at the time of Christ were dispersed from Palestine, they also went West if possible as did Israel. These were those who did not accept YAHSHUA, Jesus as Messiah, did not accept the New Covenant of Baptism and Resurrection. They were still clinging to their belief in what is called ‘Judaism’ which has a different Messiah and God.
