Chapter Summary

There is no doubt that those Jews who did not consent to the death of Jesus Christ, but rather acknowledged Him as the Saviour of the world, were the most noble and those of greatest quality, such as Nicodemus, Gamaliel and others who in those days remained steadfast in their knowledge of the Son of God made human. Thus, it is certain that those who today could prove this truth, bearing witness through their deeds, were infallibly the most honoured and noble ones and the leading men on earth. In the Kingdom of Navarre, the Hebrews are barred legal practice and in Portugal they are inviolably prohibited from becoming doctors, surgeons and apothecaries in the royal hospital as well as holding other offices of even less importance than those in which the just and necessary rigour is broken.
