The new version has no mention of Israel as Jewish and no mention of Jesus as a Jew. In fact, Jesus (Yeshua) is changed from being Jewish to being a Palestinian Arab, according to Geri Ungurean in NowTheEndBegins.
Sabeel (Arabic "the way" and also "a channel" or "spring") is a Christian liberation theology organization based in Jerusalem. It was founded by Palestinian Anglican priest Rev. Naim Ateek, the former Canon of St. George"s Cathedral in Jerusalem.
According to Ungurean, Dr. Ateek "wants to rewrite the Bible in the same manner that Catholic, Anglican and Reformed theologies have claimed that the Christian Church is "The New Israel," also called "The Israel of God." Rewriting history and inventing theology is a popular vocation. Revisionist historians take liberties with facts until they cease to have meaning. Prime examples are the Holocaust denial polemics or current trends to rewrite American history texts."
Ungurean says, "An official partner of the Presbyterian Church USA, Sabeel has Friends of Sabeel chapters in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Ireland, France, Germany, the Netherlands and Australia."
Sabeel is involved with the "Christ at the CheckPoint" conference, which seeks to undermine the traditional evangelical support for Israel.
