BOSTON (AP) — A Christian journal run by Harvard University students has apologized for publishing and republishing an essay by an anonymous writer who wrote that Jews deserve to be punished by God for killing Jesus.

The Boston Globe reports ( ) that the essay was posted on the Harvard Ichthus (IHK'-thoos) website on Wednesday, removed, edited, reposted Friday morning and removed again.

Ichthus editor-in-chief Aaron Gyde posted an apology on the journal's website Saturday on behalf of the journal's editorial board.

Gyde wrote that it wasn't the intent of the writer or the Ichthus to present an essay that could be interpreted as anti-Semitic. Gyde says the blog was intended to communicate the necessity of salvation through Jesus Christ.

The essay was written by an anonymous Jewish convert to Christianity.
