I was born a Jew thus I'm unable to truly have this experience, but I imagine that if I was for example a German Christian duke in the hre, I would like to have a Jew in my court, he would colour my palace, and it would be very cool to have this special snowflake edgy being around, if only for the fact that he is different. In the same way, if I was a sports coach, I would want to have a Jew in my team, he would like a mascot or a lucky charm, and we all say "oh, look, it's the Jew". Is this how non Jews feel in relation to Jews?

Jews were handy because they had no powerful relation in the feudal families or the Church. When someone was needed to an office who could be trusted because was entirely dependent in his person to the one who entrusted him, a Jew would be a good pick. He did not sold out to the bishop, or some rival family, and was literate to boot. And if things went south the shit could be piled upon his neck, and throw to the masses to take the blame, since they killed Jesus anyway.
