The word Jew is NOT in the Bible

“A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.” – Mark Twain

The word Jew is nowhere to be found in the good book.

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 (or Judeans).

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.

Prior to 1775, when the English language was still in its infancy, IEWE was used to translate these words. Unlike the word Jew it was pronounced Yee-hoo-wee, stretching its best to imitate the original Hebrew phonetic of Ye-hu-wdiy.

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


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. See What Happened to the Hebrews here.

All the above groups are converts to Judaism, and none 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.

Here’s an example of how changing Jews to Judah changes the whole meaning of a passage:

Salvation is of Judah.” John 4:22

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 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 satanic 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.

    • This is the dumbest question we’ve ever had. Sorry and apology in advance that we had to use the English word DUMB, but we couldn’t find a more respectful Yiddish (your real Ashkenazic culture) one.

      Seriously? Really? We never said that the word “Jew” appeared in ‘Greek’ before English existed. Here’s what we wrote:

      Greek Words in the New Testament: Iouda: Jehudah or Judah – Ioudaios: belonging to Jehudah or belonging to Judah

      Furthermore, we said that the English word “Jew” did not come into existence until 1775. And that “Judahite” was its original meaning. And that the word “Jew” as it is understood today (i.e., follower of Pharisaism) is not in the (non-translated) Bible.

      It is not our fault you don’t understand English. Or maybe is it that you want so much to believe that you’re a Judahite Hebrew – when Hebrews don’t exist anymore which deep down you know because of your Yiddish culture – that you have a Chosen People complex? And then you’re trying so hard to find fault somewhere in our article?

      Apparently you’re now a Christian – a former Jew since for example we don’t call a former Satanist a Satanist Christian – according to your twitter account. Brother, we hope you wake up and get out of this prideful sin that has engulfed you. Remember Galatians 3: 28:

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

      If you don’t want to be one with the rest of us, choosing instead to try to set yourself apart by pretending to be a Judahite – hence more important than the rest of us (in your mind) – then you are abiding in sin. God have mercy on your soul then.

      The following is an article on What Happened to the Judahite Hebrews. We hope and pray that it helps shake your sins of pride and lie:

      And obviously you’re suffering from the Chosen People syndrome.


  1. The Jew of Malta, a play by Christopher Marlowe, was written around 1589 or 1590.
    Shylock, in Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice – believed to have been written between 1596 and 1598 – is also described – and identified – as a Jew;
    “Therefore, Jew, Though justice be thy plea, consider this,”


    • The exact title of the play by Christopher Marlowe is:

      As for Shakespeare, here’s historian Benjamin H. Freedman:

      Shakespeare never saw the word “Jew” as you will see. Shakespeare never used the word “Jew” in any of his works, the common general belief to the contrary notwithstanding. In his “Merchant of Venice”, V.III.i.61, Shakespeare wrote as follows: “what is the reason? I am a Iewe, hath not a Iewe eyes?”

      And IEWE in Old English meant Judean/Judahite. Continue reading here.

      Please get your facts straight next time.


  2. Why is The Name Jew Mentioned several times in The Book Of Esther Referring to a People but even more so to the man Mordecai ?


    • The Hebrew word JUDAHITE is what is in the book of Esther and in the Old Testament. The Old Testament was NOT written in English, but in Hebrew. The original Hebrew word written is Yehuwdiy which means Judahite, from the tribe of Judah, NOT Jew as it is understood today since Jews today are NOT from the tribe of Judah. The word Jew has been hijacked by people who are pretending to be Hebrews so they could steal Palestine. In the process, the word Jew lost its original meaning of Judahite. That’s the whole point of the article.


  3. Hello friends, have just discovered your website and the article on the word Jew. Dear people, determined as you so clearly are to speak the truth, please remember Ephesians 4, 15 which says we are to be “speaking the truth in love”. But for stating our Saviour to be the true King and Messiah as He most certainly is, the way of your words comes across as being cold and unfriendly. Brothers and sisters in Christ, as weak and sinful as i know myself to be, i look to the One Who is utterly perfect; Who even when suffering unimaginable agony said “Father forgive them”. Please speak the truth in love always, and may God bless you.


    • Well, friend, the truth sometimes has that effect. Here’s how the Apostle Paul spoke the truth:

      “But now I am writing you not to associate with anyone who claims to be a brother but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or a verbal abuser, a drunkard or a swindler. With such a man do not even eat… Expel the wicked person from among you.” 1 Corinthians 5:11, 13

      Here’s Jesus:

      “You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell?” Matthew 23:33

      We’re not pretending to be neither Jesus nor the Apostle Paul. However, you have a misconception of what speaking the truth in love is. It is to speak without ulterior motive, having the best interest of the other party at heart, because by telling the truth you hope to show them the error of their ways and hopefully bring them around. It is not necessarily a touchy-feely “oh-I-feel-your-pain” kind of approach – though with little kids it could prove useful.

      If our words seem to you cold and unfriendly, it is because you are filtering them through your own preconceived, not-necessarily-biblical approach. And forgiveness has nothing to do with “speaking the truth in love”. No one personally wronged us here. We’re just pointing out “unpleasant” facts. So do not compare apples with oranges. Christians have that bad habit.

      Still, we do appreciate you reaching out. Best.


  4. Very enlightening, to say the least. It goes to show that there are some forces that do not shy away from messing with the bible and its translation. Thank you for opening my eyes to this truth: the word Jew is not in the bible.

  6. Excellent article. It is nice to find someone else who knows greek. It would be great if the Bibles were updated to eliminate that contracted word “Jew”, and replaced it with Judean as it is in the greek in most places.
