Throughout the centuries some Jews, rebelling against constant Talmudic and occasional Messianic excitement, explored an almost unspeakable alternative: becoming a Christian. Ironically, pressure to "convert" from church, government, or mob made true conversion more difficult-for what honest person would make for material reasons a decision about the most important spiritual question? Nevertheless, some Jews over the years responded to Christ as did early Jews like Peter the apostle: "You have the words of eternal life. We believe and know that you are the Holy One of God."
