Burning of New Testament>>>

Can you site any historic instance where that (Burning of Books-Koran or New Testament by Jews was actually done)

In the 13th century the new forces of rationalism had made their
appearance in Western Europe as well as an upsurge of sectarian
movements The Church also directed its attention to Jews as
potential subversive elements. One outcome of the repression of
rationalistic tendencies was the burning of Maimonides' "Guide of
the Perplexed" at Montpellier, Southern France, in 1233.


Maimonides, a rationalist, and known as Rabbi Moses ben Maimon (the
"Rambam"), the SECOND Moses and one of Judaism's greatest
philosophers was a threat to the Church. He was a Jewish physician
who was well versed in Greek philosophy, spent much of his life
among Muslims and he greatly influenced Christian Europe which is
why his books were burned.
