Jesus was not a Jew

JesusJesus was a Judahite or Judean, not a Jew. There’s a difference.


The word “Jew” did not come into existence until the year 1775. Its modern connotation points to someone who follows and adheres to a faith similar to that of the Pharisees of Judah, but is not of the tribe and stock of Judah. In other words, Jews are people from nations other than the 12 Hebrew tribes who practice a religion known as Judaism/Pharisaism, the doctrine of the Pharisees.

It is much like those who believe in Christ and are called Christians, in honor of the One whom they follow, and their religion is known as Christianity, the doctrine of Christ. If one were to say that all Christians are Judahites because Christ was of the tribe of Judah, it would be a fallacy. In much the same way, Jews are not Judahites.

In fact, the religion that is known as Judaism is actually Pharisaism. Judaism – as it pertains to Pharisaism – is a misnomer since it is neither the doctrine of Judah nor the doctrine that Christ practiced.

It is the doctrine of the Pharisees of old, an evil doctrine they brought back from their Babylonian captivity. It does not follow the truth of the Bible, neither of the Old Testament nor of the New. Its central tenets are found in a book called the Talmud, a book full of worldly traditions, lies, and superstitions.

“The Babylonian Talmud is based on the mystical religious practices of the Babylonians which were assimilated by the Judahite Rabbis during their Babylonian captivity around 600 B.C. The Rabbis then used these occult traditions in place of the word of God,” wrote Edward Hendrie in Solving the Mystery of Babylon the Great.

And that is why Jesus was constantly rebuking the Pharisees:

You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” John 8:44

“You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to human traditions.” Mark 7:8

“For you have taken away the key to knowledge.” Luke 11:52

“You serpents, you brood of vipers, how will you escape the sentence of hell?” Matthew 23:33


In both the Old Testament Hebrew and the New Testament Greek the word to be translated is always meant to be Judah or Judahite(s), of the physical tribe and stock of Judah. And Jews today are not of the tribe of Judah.

Hebrew Words in the Old Testament Bible: 1) Yehuwdah: Jehudah or Judah  2) Yehuwdiy: Jehudite or Judahite.

Greek Words in the New Testament Bible: 1) Iouda: Jehudah or Judah  2) Ioudaios: Jehudite or Judahite, or belonging to Jehudah/Judah.

According to Jewish-born Historian Benjamin H. Freedman, author of Facts Are Facts:

“The best known 18th century editions of the New Testament in English are the Rheims (Douai) Edition and the King James Authorized Edition. The Rheims (Douai) translation of the New Testament into English was first printed in 1582 but the word ‘Jew’ did not appear in it.

“The King James Authorized translation of the New Testament into English was begun in 1604 and first published in 1611. The word ‘Jew’ did not appear in it either. The word ‘Jew’ appeared in both these well known editions in their 18th century revised versions for the first times.

“When the word ‘Jew’ was first introduced into the English language in the 18th century its one and only implication, inference and innuendo was ‘Judean’. However, during the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries a well-organized and well-financed international ‘pressure group’ created a so-called ‘secondary meaning’ for the word ‘Jew’ among the English-speaking peoples of the world. This so-called ‘secondary meaning’ for the word ‘Jew’ bears no relation whatsoever to the 18th century original connotation of the word ‘Jew’. It is a misrepresentation.

“The present generally accepted secondary meaning of the word ‘Jew’ is fundamentally responsible for the confusion in the minds of Christians regarding elementary tenets of the Christian faith. It is likewise responsible today to a very great extent for the dilution of the devotion of countless Christians for their Christian faith.

“Christians today are becoming more and more alerted day by day why the so-called or self-styled ‘Jews’ throughout the world for three centuries have spent uncounted sums of money to manufacture the fiction that the ‘Judeans’ in the time of Jesus were ‘Jews’ rather than ‘Judeans’, and that ‘Jesus was a Jew’.” See How the Ashkenazi Jews conquered the West

The forced evolution of the word “Jew” is similar to the evolution that befell the word “gay”. Gay=Merry became Gay=Homosexual. Try telling someone who’s happy (and who’s not a homosexual) that you’re glad he’s so “gay” and see what happens.

Another example is when many Christians today interact with a Jew they just met, their immediate reaction is to say, “Oh, Jesus was a Jew, too.” What they’re unwittingly saying is, “Oh, Jesus was a Pharisee, too.”

Oh, the blasphemy!

A word is what it is according to the meaning of its time. The word “Jew” today is so entrenched in describing one who follows Pharisaism (or Judaism) that it’s been completely emptied of its original meaning. Hence it no longer describes a Judahite or Judean.

That is why it needs to be struck from the translated bible.

“God is not the author of confusion…” 1 Corinthians 14:33


Of the 12 Hebrew tribes Judah was the most faithful and the most active in making converts, especially after they teamed up with the Levites. Their converts became known as the ones who prayed to Jehovah, the God of Abraham.

“For the Levites left their suburbs and their possession, and came to Judah and Jerusalem: for Jeroboam and his sons had cast them off from executing the priest’s office unto the LORD.” 2 Chronicles 11:14

The other 10 tribes, collectively known as Israel, separated from Judah and always did evil in God’s eyes.

“Ephraim compasseth me about with lies, and the house of Israel with deceit: but Judah yet ruleth with God, and is faithful with the saints.” Hosea 11:12

So while Judah was helping the priests in the implementation of their office, Israel was basking in evil. Thus Judah became the one that carried the torch of God’s light unto the nations. A process that would culminate with the advent of Jesus the Christ and His church assembly. Because, just like the Christian Church, the Judahite Hebrew nation was a proselytizing nation that wanted people all over the world to know and pray to the true God of the Universe; even though, at one point, the conversion process had become totally corrupted because of the pharisaic teachings. Let’s hear Jesus:

“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.” Matthew 23:15

The proselytizers of Judah scattered all over the world, including such places as Ephesus and Damascus, as mentioned by the Apostle Paul in the Book of Acts. Those who converted didn’t miraculously become Judahites and Hebrews. How could anyone? The proselytes only professed to worship the God of Abraham and to adhere to the various rules of the faith. They maintained their own cultures and identities, much like all the nations that converted to Christianity.

Accordingly, even the prophet Obadiah himself was a convert. He was an Edomite, not a Hebrew. Now Edom (or Esau) was the brother of Jacob (or Israel). So why did God pick an Edomite preacher and not a Hebrew to go to the Edomites? Because God knows very well that a prophet is never accepted in his own home. Ask Jesus. And because God wanted Edom to pay for what he had done to his brother Jacob, He called on an Edomite prophet to warn them, knowing the homegrown prophet would be rejected. Otherwise, he would have sent an Israelite, like he did with Jonah the Hebrew in Nineveh (Modern Iraq), where they all repented (and converted and became known later on as Karaites or Karaite Jews) to Jonah’s chagrin. As expected, the Edomites did not repent and suffered the consequences. They were totally wiped out.

“Esau I have hated, and I have turned his hill country into a wasteland and left his inheritance to the desert jackals.” Malachi 1:3

God did the same thing to the Hebrews. He sent them one of their own, Jesus, so He could get revenge for all the prophets they had killed, Jesus included. A revenge that took place in AD 70 when God dispatched the Roman army to destroy the Hebrew Nation, Jerusalem, and the Temple.

That revenge is known as the Apocalypse, the Tribulation, the Armageddon, the Desolation, and the End of the Age of the Hebrews, as prophesied by Christ in the Gospels and by John in the entire book of Revelation, and as recorded by historian Flavius Josephus in The Wars of the Judahites. A revenge that wiped out the entire Hebrew race, except for those who converted to Christianity and fled beforehand.

“Jesus turned and said to them, ‘Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; weep for yourselves and for your children.'” Luke 23:28

“But he responded, ‘Do you see all these buildings? I tell you the truth, they will be completely demolished. Not one stone will be left on top of another!'” Matthew 24: 2

“But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then recognize that her desolation is near. Then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains, and those who are in the midst of the city must leave, and those who are in the country must not enter the city.” Luke 21: 20,21

“Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.” Matthew 24:34

“And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Mattthew 28:20

“And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which mystically is called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified.” Rev 11:8


The Roman Army and the Hebrew Genocide in Jerusalem 70 AD

That is why the Hebrew Tribes are no longer around. They can’t and won’t be “found” either, because they’re not lost, they’re dead – their land inheritance buried with them.

“The LORD was very angry with Israel, and removed them out of his sight… And the LORD rejected all the seed of Israel, and afflicted them, and delivered them into the hand of spoilers, until he had cast them out of his sight.” 2 Kings 17:18,20

“And I will silence in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, for the land shall become a waste.” Jeremiah 7:34

“Behold, your house is being left to you desolate!” Matthew 23:38

However, the Christian Hebrews who escaped those infernal LAST DAYS of the Old Covenant did not have the mark of the beast and embodied “all Israel shall be saved”‘ of Romans 11:26. Their symbolic number in Revelation is 144,000 (12 tribes squared/Father & Son x 1000/many or 12² x 1000). Those with the mark of the beast were annihilated.

In other words, there are NO LOST TRIBES of Israel roaming about. They’re all dead. Besides, if they’re lost, why don’t they pick up a cell phone and call someone. After all, this is the 21st century.🙂

Today, those who are known as Jews are in fact the non-Semitic and non-Israelite Ashkenazim, Sephardim, and Samaritans, who in later times joined small numbers of other races that converted to Judaism/Pharisaism: Polish, Russians, Ukrainians, Germans, etc. These latter ones form a minority known as European Jews who, when coupled with the Ashkenazim, constitute a majority against the darker-skinned Samaritan, Sephardic, and African Jews.

None of these different groups can claim to trace their ancestry to Abraham, Jacob, or Judah. In other words, they’re not the chosen Hebrews of the Bible with whom God had the Old Covenant, and therefore cannot claim the land of Palestine as their Abrahamic inheritance. And resurrecting the dead Hebrew tongue after centuries in the dustbin of oblivion, in order to make it modern Israel’s official language, won’t change those facts, much like parking a Subaru in a Lamborghini dealership won’t turn it into a Veneno Roadster.


“The scepter shall not depart from Judah, Nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, Until Shiloh (Messiah) comes, And to him shall be the obedience of the nations.” Genesis 49:10

Great JesusJesus the Messiah was repeatedly called the Son of David who himself was a descendant of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

“He called out, ‘Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!'” Luke 18:38

Now David was also the First King of the tribe of Judah, following the first split from the other tribes.

“And the men of Judah came, and there they anointed David king over the house of Judah.” 2 Samuel 2:4

Since Jesus was born of the lineage of David, people of his time called Him Son of David because they knew that only a son of David could sit on the throne.

“The days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, a King who will reign wisely and do what is just and right in the land. In his days Judah will be saved and Israel will live in safety. This is the name by which he will be called: The Lord Our Righteous Savior.” Jeremiah 23:5-6

Thus the awaited King was to be a Savior also. And a Savior always brings Salvation. That’s why Jesus said:

Salvation is of Judah.” John 4:22

But in every bible that verse is translated as “Salvation is of the Jews.” Let’s go to the original Greek word, Ioudaios which literally translated means “Belonging to Judah – Of the tribe of Judah.” However, Jews today do not belong to the tribe of Judah.

And that’s extremely important, because Jesus knew why He said Judah and not Levi or Ephraim or any of the other tribes, not even Jacob or Israel. He was announcing the fulfillment of every Old Testament prophecy concerning Himself, including Micah’s prophecy which was proclaimed some time during 737-696 BC:

“And thou, Bethlehem Ephrata, art a little one among the thousands of Judah: out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be the ruler in Israel: and his going forth is from the beginning, from the days of eternity.” Micah 5:2

Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary in Bethlehem, Judah (and was crucified in Jerusalem, Judah). And only Jesus’s going forth could have been from the beginning, from the days of eternity because He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and was Emmanuel, God with us (God made flesh).

“Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is God with us.” Matthew 1:23

Furthermore, the Judahites kept God’s covenant with Moses by slaughtering and eating a lamb for Passover.

MosesJesus did it with his disciples. The lamb was killed and eaten in a private home. The sacrifice of the Passover Lamb in the Hebrew home was God’s very contract with each individual ancient Hebrew, and that’s why Jesus repeated it with his disciples in order to introduce the New Covenant.

“Tell the whole community of Israel that on the tenth day of this month each man is to take a lamb for his family, one for each household.” Exodus 12:3

Jews today don’t kill a lamb for Passover in their homes to keep the old contract alive, and most of them follow the Talmud, a man-inspired book full of Babylonian superstitions. Therefore, such practices on their part demonstrate how distinct their faith is compared to the faith Jesus practiced.


The word “Jew” as we understand it today is NOT in the bible.

It has been completely hollowed out of its “Judean” or “Judahite” meaning, because the Rabbinists who hijacked it are not of the tribe of Judah. See How the Ashkenazi Jews Conquered the West. All it does is create confusion in the Christian mind, which is exactly what the demonic forces want in order to unseat Christians as the new Chosen People – chosen to love and to do good – and to calumniate Christ as a Pharisee.

“God is not the author of confusion…” 1 Corinthians 14:33

No matter what these principalities of hell do, Jesus remains who He is and who He always was, a true Judahite, the awaited King and Messiah, the Salvation that was to come from Judah.

However, we Christians must do our part and remove the word “Jew” from the translated bible and replace it with Judahite. That way all of us may know that Jesus was NOT a Jew.

  1. they created the word jew for the sole purpose that anyone but real jews (canaanites, edomites, etc) could call themselves jews and get away with murder.


  2. So I ask, what’s the point of this article? What does it make clear? That it’s okay to hate someone, if they are not a real Jew? Or that it’s okay to hate real Jews?


  3. This attempt to separate Jesus from his Jewish heritage, by suggesting that he was not of the tribe of Judah, is just a not-so-veiled effort to justify the Church’s teaching for 2000 years that the ‘Jews” killed him.


    • 1. We posit that Jesus WAS from the Tribe of Judah. He was a JUDAHITE. That’s the whole point of the article. I guess you conveniently and purposefully missed that part to falsely accuse us – something Jews love to do.

      2. We also posit that Jesus was not a Jew and that today’s Jews are NOT Judahites. Therefore JUDAHITES killed Jesus and not JEWS. Conclusion: Today’s Jews did not kill Jesus – Judahite Hebrews did. Don’t you feel relieved now?


      • You must ALWAYS say Talmudic Jew and Talmudic Judaism, when speaking about Rabbinism:


        Unwitting Disciples of Zoroaster: The Influence of Zoroastrianism on Rabbanism in the Talmud and Midrash

        From 226 to 379, the Persian kings gathered and systematized the works of Zoroaster. The result was twenty-one great volumes – against the twenty-one words of the most holy Persian prayer, the Ahuravarrya. Known as Nusk, it is the Talmud of the Zoroastrians (speaking anachronistically).

        Due to the hostilities between the Persians and the Arabs in the latter half of the eighth century, the books of the Nusk were singled out for destruction. What now remains to the remnants of Zoroastrianism are five volumes:

        (1) Yasna – the book of sacrifices, which contains seventy-two chapters among them the Gatha passages (the oldest and most hallowed writings of the Zend-Avesta)

        (2) Vendidad – twenty-two chapters on the laws regulating evil spirits.
        (3) Yasht -an elaborate, detailed account of the Persian deities.

        (4) The Vispered – twenty-four chapters (a supplement to Yasna).

        (5) Khorda – an abridged edition of the laws in the Zend-Avesta.

        The Talmud was greatly influenced by Persian culture. It derives, in fact, much of its content directly from the Zend-Avesta, as will be detailed in brief below. One finds in the Talmud not only Persian superstition and legend, but many legal decisions handed down in accordance with Persian code. Not to mention the customs and usages of Persian life. Even the forms and expressions of the literary Pahlavi entered into the Talmud in no small way. The Persian influence on the Talmud is so great that, at times, it is difficult to separate what is Jewish from what is Persian in it.


        Let’s start with a look at Ahriman. Ahriman’s myriads of helpers are referred to as divs, what we now call devils. Vendidad I, 21 notes that these divs are more numerous than the dust of the earth (as does Talmud Masekhet Berakhot 6, Midrash Tehillim 17, Tanhuma, etc.,). The following passages from the Talmud and Midrash regarding demons (divs) were derived or directly copied from Vendidad II:

        Masekhet Sanhedrin 25 notes that devs are particularly active in graveyards. Masekhet Gitin 68 and Midrash Qohelet state that divs are male and female. Masekhet Berakhot 61 and Masekhet Hulin 105 state that demons can assume the shape of human beings, or flys. Masekhet Hagigah 16 contends that demons, like human beings, can reproduce. Masekhet Gitin 68 calls Ashemdai (Aesmadiv in Persian) the greatest of the divs. One of the fundamental teachings of Persian religious conduct is the avoidance of unclean hands (Masekhet Shabbat 109). It was believed that Sabetkh, a div, rests upon such hands: The Qissur Shulhan Arukh 2.1 quoting Yosef Caro’s Beit Yosef states, “when a man is asleep, the holy soul departs from his body, and an unclean spirit descends upon him. When rising from sleep, the unclean spirit departs from his body except for his fingers, and does not depart until one spills water upon them three times alternately. One is not allowed to walk four cubits (six feet) without having one’s hands washed, except in cases of extreme necessity.”

        Masekhet Megillah 3 states that during the period of night, no one must offer or receive the hand of another (for fear of an evil spirit). Masekhet Shevu‘ot 15 and Masekhet Berakhot 4 contain the Persian prayer to repel the unseen forces of evil.

        The driving off of evil spirits by adjuration was an integral part of the Persian religion. Whole systems of conjuration were devised by them; and many were the invocations with which some of them commanded the devils. All of these spells and “prayers” can be found in the Talmud. A few examples will serve to illustrate:
        Vendidad II, 223 and Masekhet Qiddushin 81 state that the chief thing to utter when exorcising a demon was, “I expel you from me.”
        If one has been bitten by a mad dog, a spell must be intoned in order to eject the hurtful spirit. [This very incantation, from Vendidad I.30, as well as the spell to ward against forgetfulness and the spell to insure that the sheep of the slaughterhouse may be fat have been written in the Talmud]

        The Persian beliefs in cameos, amulets, and talismans were also absorbed into the Talmud, along with the reading of sacred writings to restore health. In general, Zoroastrian influence is directly responsible for the presence of demons and devils in the Midrash and Talmud.


        To attempt to detail every point where the Talmud draws upon the Zend-Avesta would take a book. The following section will detail some of the more prominent concepts:

        The matter of benedictions, or the saying of grace over something that is eaten is of Persian origin (Vendidad II.112)
        The entire marriage ritual, with its special blessings, ceremony and rites is fully delimitated in the Zend-Avesta (II.157, 158, III.228)
        Vendidad II.130 and Midrash Tehillim both contend that the righteous who dwell in Paradise are as luminous as the stars.
        Vendidad 18, 166 and Masekhet Sanhedrin 17 state that the art of magic does not come from the Evil Power, and all wise men (in the case of the Talmud the men of the Sanhedrin can practice it).
        Both the Zend-Avesta (according to the Persians) and Torah (according to the Talmud) are able to repel demonic influences, merely by their recitation (c.f., Seder Eliyhau, Zuta 82, Masekhet Megillah 31, and Masekhet Ta‘anit 27).
        The passage in the Zend-Avesta where Ahura Mazda speaks to Zoroaster of the life of virtue that follows death has been copied directly into the Talmud (Masekhet Avot 86).
        The disciples of Zoroaster are assured of a heavenly existence, so the Talmud says of the nation of Israel (Masekhet ‘Eruvin 10).
        God is with him who studies and mediates in the night (Vendidad 18, Masekhet ‘Avodah Zarah 3, Masekhet Berakhot 30).

        The Persians believed that life is but a passing, unimportant state of existence, only after death does one truly begin to live, so Midrash Qohelet Rabba. Zoroastrians were loath to convert others to their faith, so too is found in the Talmud a discouragement to prosetylization (Masekhet Qiddushin 70).
        Though the Zend-Avesta was unknown before the coming of Zoroaster, the righteous who had lived before him were aware of it, and followed the precepts it contained. The Talmud, in this vein, contends that the Patriarchs perfectly observed the Torah even though it had not yet been given (Masekhet Yoma 28).

        Truly, all of the enjoinments concerning demons and spirits detailed in the Vendidad may be found in the Talmud. It is as if the authors of the Talmud sat down and copied the Vendidad into the Talmud. Many of the laws of Yasna: sacrificial arrangement, rendering of divine service, and regulations of cleanliness form the major portion of Talmudic law in these matters. The list goes on and on, to the extent that one begins to wonder if Rabbanites are unwitting disciples of Zoroaster.


        • Mr; Silverstein, I once read that Zoroastrianism was a result of divine revelation, in analogy with Mosheh HaNavi at the burning bush and on Mount Sinai. However, I also read in other texts that Zoroastrianism was inspired by the Jewish Choemash, or the opposite concerning the Talmud, as is the case in your text. Your claim could also be true, I once watched a YouTube-movie in which a Jew told that the Talmud claimed that the original revelation was rejected by its recipients, the Persian people, but that the second revelation (Mosheh HaNavi) was accepted (by the Jewish people at Mount sinai). So I wonder, who was first, the chicken or the egg, or perhaps this concerns two separate revelations of the One Supreme God ? Maybe the timing of the revelation-events can offer the key towards a solution.


      • This article has made so much a lot more clearer. When I read in the KJV of the bible that Moses is mistaken for an Egyptian as was Joseph, alarm bells rang. The Palestinian/Israeli conflict is a case of fighting for that which was promised to neither. Is that correct??


        • It wasn’t promised to Jews, that’s for sure. The Palestinians are the victims in this case. They’ve been living on the land for close to 2000 years when a bunch of Yids showed up and said the land was theirs and started killing, maiming, and expelling the inhabitants out of their land. Imagine one day some guy shows up at your door and holds your family at gunpoint to vacate solely on the premise that God told him your house is his. Cuckoo!


  4. In the article it is stated “African Jews are not of Abraham’s bloodline”
    Then it is stated that “David is a descendant of Abraham”
    I ask what about David’s son Menelek? is he not an african?


    • Really? What you mean by “helping no one” is this:

      “This doesn’t help us, converted Jews. Because everyone will now see us for what we really are – liars, deceivers, and impostors who stole Palestine by pretending to be Hebrews. Therefore, we will be hauled at the Hague for crimes against humanity which we have inflicted on the Palestinians, as we kicked them out of their homes and massacred countless of them. This really doesn’t help us.”

      That’s what you really mean, don’t you?


  5. This is an example of the fallacy of creating God in man’s image… You assign to God the attributes of His creation and interpret the struggles of mankind to evolve and grow spiritually as the directives of a vengeful and flawed god of your imagining. God is an unknowable essence, far beyond the comprehension of His creation.


    • God gave us His written Word, The Bible, so that we may know Him. Jesus repeatedly speaks about the importance of knowing the Father, He encourages us to know the Father…. Our attributes are a reflection of the Creator – our emotions, for example, are clearly demonstrated by God Himself…


  6. According to your statement, the “entire Hebrew race” was “wiped out”. Where is that in the Bible that the Hebrew Israelites no longer exists? According to the prophet Moses in Deut. 28:68, Israel would be in bondage (Egypt) again, but carried away on ships. There is a nation of people that fit this description.


    • What ships are they being carried on that nation today that fits this description?

      Can you point us to the current existence of the 12 Hebrew Tribes?

      In the article we quoted verses by Jesus that fit what happened in AD 70 and are confirmed in the book The Wars of the Judahites by historian Josephus who was living in Jerusalem when all these things occurred. Plus here’s Jesus prophesying:

      “Behold, your house is being left to you desolate!” Matthew 23:38

      The slaughter of the ancient Hebrews along with the downfall of Jerusalem and the Old Temple in AD 70 was God’s way of releasing Himself from His marriage to them via the Old Covenant thus legally permitting His marriage to the whole world via the New.



        Both classical and modern-day Judaism gives precedence to the Talmud more than the Torah and other books of the Old Testament. The article establishes the central role and authority of Talmud from standard Jewish and secular sources.

        There is a misconception about Judaism common among Christians and Muslims. This is the misleading idea that Judaism is a ‘biblical religion’; that the Old Testament has in Judaism the same central place and legal authority which the Bible has for Protestant or even Catholic Christianity. The legal interpretation of sacred texts is rigidly fixed in Judaism – but by the Talmud, rather than by the Bible itself (Shahak 1994).

        The supremacy of the Talmud over the Bible may be seen in the case of the black Ethiopian Jews. Ethiopians are very knowledgeable of the Old Testament. However, their religion is so ancient that it pre-dates the Talmud, of which the Ethiopians have no knowledge. The New York Times wrote,

        “The problem is that Ethiopian Jewish tradition goes no further than the Bible or Torah; the later Talmud and other commentaries that form the basis of modern traditions never came their way.”[1]

        Because they are not versed in Talmudic tradition, the black Ethiopian Jews are discriminated against and have been forbidden to perform marriages, funerals and other services in the Israeli state. It is the natural consequence of Jewish belief of considering the Talmud superior to the Torah. The Talmud states,
        Erubin 21b (Soncino edition):

        “My son, be more careful in the observance of the words of the Scribes than in the words of the Torah.”

        Rabbi Adin Even Israel Steinsaltz is the founder of the Israel Institute for Talmudic Publications, and has enjoyed the backing of Israeli presidents and prime ministers; he is a recipient of Israel’s highest civilian honor, the Israel Prize. He is currently translating the Talmud into English, French, and Russian. He writes,

        “If the Bible is the cornerstone of Judaism, then the Talmud is the central pillar, soaring up from the foundations and supporting the entire spiritual and intellectual edifice. In many ways the Talmud is the most important book in Jewish culture, the backbone of creativity and of national life. No other work has had a comparable influence on the theory and practice of Jewish life, shaping spiritual content and serving as a guide to conduct.”[2]

        “Historically speaking, the Talmud is the central pillar of Jewish culture. This culture is many faceted, but each of its numerous aspects is connected in some way with the Talmud. This is true not only of the literature that deals directly with the interpretation or continuation of the Talmud, but also of all other types of Jewish creativity.”[3]

        The importance of the Talmud and its authority can be understood by what the Universal Jewish Encyclopedia states,

        “The Talmud is undoubtedly one of the most remarkable literary productions of all times. It is an encyclopedia covering the whole scene of human life. It is almost impossible to convey to one who has not spent years in the study of this complex work an idea of its true nature, as even the most exact translations cannot catch the inner spirit of the Talmud … As a repository of the Oral Law, the Talmud’s authority is regarded as divine by Orthodox Jews, and hence it is held to be binding and immutable. Conservative and Reform Jews, however, do not recognize the absolute binding power of the Talmud, although they acknowledge the great part it has played in determining Jewish religious ideas and observances.”[4]

        Herman Wouk is a Pulitzer Prize-winning author of eleven novels, three plays, and two works of nonfiction. In his book, This is My God; the Jewish Way of Life, serialized in the New York Herald-Tribune in 1959, he wrote:

        “The Talmud is to this day the circulating heart’s blood of the Jewish religion. Whatever laws, customs or ceremonies we observe — whether we are Orthodox, Conservative, Reform or merely spasmodic sentimentalists — we follow the Talmud. It is our common law.”[5]


        The Talmud is not an ancient document with no relevance to modern Judaism. On the contrary, the Encyclopedia Britannica tells us that with the rebirth of a Jewish national state since 1948 and the revival of Jewish culture, the Talmud has achieved renewed importance. Orthodox Judaism has always focused upon its study and has believed it to be the absolute religious authority. It has become one of the aims of religious (Orthodox) Jews there to establish the law of Talmud as the general law of the state. Aside from Israel, the legal system described above has continued to function down to the present day in Jewish communities all over the world. The jurisdiction of rabbinic courts is voluntarily accepted by Orthodox Jews. These courts continue to exert authority, especially in the areas of family and dietary law, the synagogue, and the organization of charity and social activity. Furthermore, Conservative Judaism, too, has always been committed to the Talmud. Thus, a network of day schools and higher institutions of learning in which the Talmud occupies a major role in the curriculum has been established. Scores of young Conservative Jews now search in the Talmud for answers to their crucial problems.[6]

      • […]

        yes the Bible is true , but the devil is working hard at changing meanings through word changes in the translations

        do you have an article on the old covenant , and the new ?



  7. First I must apologize for only getting to your correspondence now but I find it very interesting. As a Muslim I have to remind my own people that Jesus or esaa as the quraan calls him was not a Jew.I would really appreciate more articles from you being sent to my email address, Especially the one you sent me on twitter. I hope interfaith dialogue and mutual respect will prevail always.
    yours faithfully.


  8. Why was it “to Jonah’s chagrin” that he had converted people in Nineveh? Are YWEH, Jehovah, Yaweh all the same name? Why do some people put a hyphen in God; i.e., G-D? Thank you! Why do you suppose God was getting vengeance on tribes in the OT, and Jesus was more peaceful?


    • 1) Because Jonah did not get the fact that God wanted all people on earth to be within His family. He wanted God to himself – not unlike today’s converted Jews with the Chosen People Syndrome.
      2) All the same name.
      3) Why they write G-D is pure superstition on their part. Not a biblical command.
      4) Because they were so evil and bloodthirsty, especially as they were sacrificing their children to the god Moloch. It is like when God flooded the earth during Noah’s time. It was because of all the wars, the killings and the evil sacrifices. They were beyond redemption. Only the advent of Jesus as the Savior of the world truly redeems mankind.

      Hope that helps. Blessings to you.


      • Jonah knew that God was forgiving and merciful…he hated the Ninevites and did not want God to forgive them and save them – they were a terrible and savage people, Jonah wanted them punished for their sins.


    • The term Jew has been hijacked to muddy the water and makes those who hijacked it seem Hebrew so they could steal Palestine. Therefore, today the term Jew does NOT represent a person from the tribe of Judah. Hence we’re saying Jesus was NOT a Jew. He was a Judahite. All the other Hebrew Tribes had their own names, but they’re commonly referred to as Hebrews or Israelites. The Judahites were also Hebrews, hence Judahite Hebrews.

      Today, Jews are those who converted to Pharisaism/Judaism.


      • Hi. Good article. I have a question. I know two people who are followers of “Messianic Judaism.” They both claim to have what is called the “jew gene” aka “J-1 gene”.
        Do you know of that gene? Is it named incorrectly or bogus altogether?


        • Thanks. There’s a lot of propaganda out there by Zionists. A lot of “Messianic” Jews are not really followers of Christ. They’re actually Zionist infiltrators. We also knew a few. Their job is to infiltrate the body of Christ to brainwash Christians into believing that “Jews” are special and have the right to steal Palestine.

          Even the name of the gene tells you it’s fake. J-1? Jewish #1? Besides what’s a Jew gene? Judaism is a religion not a race. An Ashkenazi gene, perhaps. So what? An Ashkenazi Jewish gene is NOT a Hebrew gene. Remember Jesus was NOT an Ashkenazi Jew, but a Judahite Hebrew.

          A good verse for your friends and for you:

          “There is neither Judahite nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all ONE in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3: 28

          A good article also which will link you to a genetic study that proves that Ashkenazi Jews are Europeans:


  9. There’s a good book by Shlomo Sands called
    ” The Invention of the Jewish People “. He wrote another called ” The Myth of the Jewish Diaspora.
    When I debate this issue with Zionists I say, saying that European Jews are direct descendants of the Hebrews is like saying Swedish Christians of today are direct descendants of the first century Christians.


  10. I always wondered about whether Jews and the people of Judah were the same. Thanks for illuminating the fact that they’re not. A lot of things make sense now.


  11. There are over 250 Jewish Holocaust museums throughout the United States and Canada. Can anyone tell me if the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC mentions the 6 million Christians that were murdered by Hitler? Why were Jewush deaths stressed?
    Why isn’t there a Holocaust Museum for the 20 – 66 million Christians murdered during the Bolshevik Revolution under the direction of Zionists? Why isn’t there a Holocaust Museum for the 1.9 million Native American Indians or the 1.8 million Armenian Christians killed by the Ottoman Muslim Turks? Or the 200,000 Muslims murdered by the “Christian” ked Slobadan Milosevic? Why does Jewish history overshadow all other Holocausts?


    • Or the current Palestinian Holocaust the Jews are executing.

      “We Jews, we, the destroyers, will remain the destroyers for ever.” –Maurice Samuel

      To answer your questions: Wouldn’t be surprised if only or mostly Jews are mentioned in any of their museums. Because they control the Federal Reserve – the money-printing press of the world and the Jews are stealing most of it. So they can afford to control that agenda.


      They’re using the fabricated Holocaust as leverage to spit on anyone who dares accuse them of their crimes, including the fleecing of the Federal Reserve.


    • The questions you raise and the points you make are so apt. For instance, when our parliament and our prime minister, David Cameron, stated that we should remember the Holocaust, and that such human devastation should never happen again, I thought, what of Rwanda? Palestine? mass killings still continue. As for the Jewish nation that we see today, are they and the ancient nation of Israel one and the same? NB Moses is described as looking like an Egyptian. Joseph is depicted as a dark person inscribed on a Egyptian tomb wall – BBC 1 documentary. But regardless, why is the suffering of one people more important than that of others?


  12. Thank you for guiding me to finding The Talmud. I did see many versions on line. I just wonder if there was a copy that analyzes it without bias either way.


    • No problem.

      As a side note, we would advise to stick with the truth of the word of God and not dabble in the filth of the darkness. Nothing to gain by muddying yourself with the devil’s crap. Shining the light of Christ to dispel the darkness is the only way to win since you cannot fight darkness with darkness.



  13. Being raised a Christian and taught and read from kj bible and others alike.. I have always heard about a coming apocalypse that is mentioned in Rev. Is the article saying that .. that apocalypse has already occurred.. meaning now we are just waiting for Jesus to return?


  14. I debated a Hasbara Troll on a blog. I said being Jewish is being of a religion not a race. Being Catholic is being of a religion. European Jews are not descendants of Moses or Abraham. I asked the Troll, why then do we have Chinese Jews and Ethiopian Jews? Are they descendants of Abraham or Moses? Where these Hebrews black or Chinese? What about Sammy Davis Jr. ? Was he a descendant of Moses or Abraham? I further asked are Swedish Catholics related to the first century Christians? I continued that most European Jews are converts in the 8th to 14th centuries.
    All my questions were evaded.


  15. Hi, nice article.

    You mentioned that there are no lost tribe of Hebrews are roaming about except the Christian Hebrews? Where are they now? Because if I’m not mistaken in Bible there’s a verse that mentioned 144.000 of Israelites (are these people a Christian Hebrews who lives in Israel?)

    And also in Jeremiah 31 – God made an agreement with Israel and Judah, and in Jeremiah 33 God also made a promise to both Judah and Israel. I assumed that God didn’t wiped out the Israelites otherwise He broke His own promise?

    Thanks and God bless.


    • Thanks.

      Read A Brief History of the Kingdoms of Israel and Judah. It will clear up any confusion.

      As for the book of Jeremiah and all the promises, they’ve already been fulfilled in the person of Jesus Christ. That’s why Jesus sent the Apostles to the Tribes of Israel, first, and then to the rest of the world.

      “salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Judahite, then to the Gentile.” Romans 1:16

      Further, there weren’t just blessings in the Law, there were also curses in store for the Tribes for their disobedience – everyone overlooks those. See it here.

      Then, Jesus rewote the Law and the promises. See it here. Everything from the Old Covenant has to be filtered now through the New, as the Old covenant became obsolete along with all so-called promises that people read into them and which no longer apply since they’re already fulfilled.

      “By calling this covenant ‘new,’ he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete is outdated.” Hebrews 8:13

      OBSOLETE = DONE, NO MORE, FINITO. And that goes also for all the so-called “promises” that people misunderstand and take out of context.

      God bless you too. May He open your eyes!


  16. This article is spot on. As well, I’m so glad Jesus was NOT a Jew. Because if you look at what these Zionist Jews are doing to the Palestinians and how they’re messing up America and how they have messed up Russia and how incredibly vicious they are, who would want to have relatives like them?


  17. It was a shock to me some years ago when I learned that many Orthodox do not believe in the Zionist return. Only the messiah can re-establish the state of Israel. Some, however, are weakening as the Zionist state is seeming to be well established.


    • The real Messiah, Jesus, when He returns, will return only to shut down the course of History. God is done with Israel.

      “Therefore the LORD was very angry with Israel, and removed them out of his sight… And the LORD rejected all the seed of Israel, and afflicted them, and delivered them into the hand of spoilers, until he had cast them out of his sight.” 2 Kings 17:18,20

      You need to undo the brainwashing about this Israel business.

      And, further, why are some Orthodox Rabbinists weakening in the face of a castle built on sand (Israel)? It only proves that their belief is also built on sand.
