What is the link between Christianity and Judaism?

This has come up in the Facebook group, but I figured more people would see it here and hopefully shed some light on the logic. Someone mentioned that one of the Duggar girls was wearing a Star of David necklace during the last show, and this offended them.

I shared that my sister's boyfriend, a very devout Baptist, has "Jehovah Elohim", or "Lord God", tattoed on his hands in Hebrew lettering.

So, what's the deal?

A lot of fundie Christians who have are completely uneducated on history (thanks to TSOTDRT) think that Judaism consists of just the Old Testament, and that Jesus essentially expanded Judaism to include people who aren't ethnically Jewish. They don't understand the history of either religion and so they think they are basically just non-Jewish Jews and they like to appropriate the Jewish cultures to feel like they have some connection to history and tradition.

Even when I was mainstream Christian, I believed for a long time that the Old Testament defined Judaism and didn't realize there was more to it.

Christianity is a cult offshoot of Judaism that got really, really popular.

To put it into SAT format-

Christianity is to Judaism as the People's Temple is to Christianity (the People's Temple, according to wikipedia, was the group at Jonestown)

Unfortunately most Christians, not just fundies, are not familiar with the history of their own religion nor its relations to others. They just go by what they were taught by their church, which is only a small part of the truth.

      So..my son is getting married at the beginning of March and I tried on dresses today. I need to lose weight. I'm about 60-70 pounds overweight and I absolutely have to. I'm not one to post statuses but I'm doing everything I can to hold myself accountable. I'm sitting here wanting to stuff my face and I know this isn't the answer. I can do this. I will be okay. I'm going to make myself check in regularly. Whether or not anyone sees this, I am going to be posting.

      Is anyone here from Moore County, NC?  I hope they catch the domestic terrorists that shot up the power substations.  All to stop a drag show!  Throw the fuckers in jail.

      What do people do in the Sonoran desert? I've hiked the hikes I wanted to do. Seems like all that is left is golf, shopping at chains that exist everywhere, and stuff I've done. Oh and eating. I can only eat so many times a day. It's too cold to rent a paddleboard or swim.

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      Don't know I'd charge quite that much though.

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞
