What would happen if modern Seventh-day Adventists – as their forefathers may have done with the German people before World War II – began teaching the world that Jews are not really Jews?
Professor Walter Veith questions claims made by modern Ashkenazi Jews. This leader and well-known independent evangelist of the Seventh-day Adventist church teaches about prophecies of the SDA church, and he is listened to and supported by many of the church’s leaders. Are Walter Veith’s teachings like those of German Adventists in the 1930s? Is he attempting to persuade the world that Ashkenazi Jews are not true descendants of ancient Jews, but are in fact converts to Judaism?
In Israel, Orthodox Jews constantly question the validity of Jewish conversion. Therefore, the question of Dr. Walter Veith as to whether Ashkenazi Jews are descendants of Jewish converts becomes an even more interesting issue.
