Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It also helps to be aware of it when dealing with people from a Jewish (especially Sephardic) cultural background. But that's my main point: if you had used "Christian" in a vague cultural sense, I wouldn't have had any problem with it (though I might have looked carefully to make sure there wasn't anything else behind it...). But the singling out of the Jewish component as though it was an equal contributor makes me suspicious. Sure, there was Jewish influence on Christianity. But there were also inputs from pagan ritual, Greek philosophy, not to mention Islam.
