  • Jesus was NOT a Jew

    Those who argue a case for Jesus being a Jew are either fools or liars. Jesus was not a Jew and therefore he was not a Judaean.

    Moreover, Jews are not the Tribe of Judah. Jews are not the Tribe of Judah. Correctly, members of the Tribe of Judah are Judahites.
    That is, Judahites are of the Bloodline of Judah. Consequently, Jesus was not a "Jew," he was, correctly, a Judahite ("Yhuwdiy") of the Bloodline of Judah, a direct decedent of King David and an Israelite living in Galilee and so was a Galilean. "Jew" is a nationalistic word not a racial word and means someone living in Judaea. The southern part of ancient Palestine coming after the Kingdom of Judah and a Roman province at the Time of Christ.

    Similarly, a Galilean is someone living in Galilee. Thus, "Jew" properly means a resident of Judaea and so it is a word that defines residency, not religion or race. Moreover, Yahweh made no Covenant with any "Jew," but with Israelites from the House of Israel and Judahites from the House of Judah who were of the Hebrew race and of the faith of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

    Furthermore, the Twelve Disciples who Christ himself chose (Matt. 10:2) were representatives of the Twelve Tribes of Israel (Rev. 21:14) and one of them was indeed a Jew, a Judaean, a resident of Judaea. This Judaean was Judas Iscariot … the Disciple who betrayed Christ to His enemies for 30 pieces of silver and whose name is now synonymous with betrayal under the guise of friendship.

    Jesus was born in Bethlehem, in the ancestral city of David, which was in Judea but his family had moved from there to Egypt, then to Galilee. They moved because Herod (73-4 BC) tried to kill Jesus by ordering the death of all children under age two in Bethlehem, and so, the family sojourned in Egypt until Herod's death allowed them to return. However, Archelaus, Herod's wicked son, began his reign in Judea and Joseph moved his young family to Galilee; hence Joseph, Mary and child found themselves again in Nazareth, in Galilee.

    In short: Jesus was not a Jew and therefore he was not a Judaean, he was a Galilean, but, of the Judahite bloodline. Had Jesus been a Jew, a Judaean, he would most probably have been an Edomite and therefore he would not have be in direct lineage to David and so to Jacob, Isaac, Abraham and Adam. Thus, if Jesus had been a so-called "Jew" he would not have been a Judahite and so not suitable as the perfect human vessel for the Incarnation of Christ. Moreover, he would not, as Jesus Christ, become the Messiah whom Yahweh had prophesied would dwell in Galilee of the Gentiles (Isa. 9:1-7). Jesus of Nazareth was not a Jew and therefore he was not a Judaean and, as Jesus Christ, did not live in Judaea or dared to walk in Jewry (i.e. Judaea), "for fear of the Jews" who sought to kill Him. Why this fear of death before the fateful time of the Passion? Because, as detailed in Genesis and elsewhere, "the Jews" have sworn to slay the Israelites, Yahweh's Chosen People, and are as a consequence "the people against whom God has indignation forever" (Gen. 9:25; 27:39-41; Isa.. 34:1-9; Mal. 1:1-4).

    Yet, there is a universal misapprehension that the English word "Jew," those born and living in Judaea, is a cognate for "Judahite," meaning those born of the Tribe of Judah. Moreover, that it refers to "Hebrews" and "Israelites." In short: that Jews were/are exclusively Judahites and Judahites were/are exclusively Jews.

    Judahites were originally the progeny of Judah, the fourth son of Jacob, and represented one of the Twelve Tribes of Israel, with one of their number being the Messiah, and were inhabitants of the Kingdom of Judah. The term "Judahite" ("Yhuwdiy") thus refers to true Hebrews and true Israelites.

    However, it was later corrupted to "Jews" and the term broadened to mean any descendant of Abraham. Although the word "Jew" or "Jews" appear in modern versions of the Holy Bible 280 times (90 times in the Old Testament and 190 times in the New Testament) at the time of Christ's Ministry, no person, group or tribe were described as a "Jew" or "Jews" since the terms and concept did not yet exist.

    Thus, the word is "Yhuwdiy" or "Judahite" means "people of the tribe of Judah." And, "Yhuwdiy," "Judahite," has not same the meaning as the modern word "Jew."

    The armies of Nebuchadnezzar (630?-562 BC), the king of Chaldea, that captured and destroyed Jerusalem and exiled the Judahites to Babylonia coined the ancient word that is the cognate of the modern word "Jew." Moreover, it was NOT an abbreviation of the word "Judah," but "Judaea" and means a "Judaean," and so, refers to a geographic region and NOT a people or race. In short: the armies of Nebuchadnezzar called their captives "Jews" because they came from Judaea not because they were Judahites and certainly NOT because they recognised them as a distinct race called "Jews"; and so, the word "Jew" has no religious or racial inferences and refers to anyone resident in Judaea.

    Most Jews, past and present, do not belong to the Tribe of Judah or to any of the Twelve Tribes of Israel. Moreover, the Bible is unequivocal on the matter and repeatedly records the point that most so-called "Jews" in the days of Christ's Mission were not a Semitic people (Matt. 23:33-35; John 8:33-34; Rev. 2:9; 3:9). The majority of Judaeans in Christ's Time were Idumeans (Edomites) who were of the Esau line, descendants of Edom, the eldest son of Isaac who would have inherited the covenant Yahweh made with Abraham, the Abrahamic Covenant, inherited by Isaac; but who traded his birthright to his twin brother Jacob for a mess of pottage.

    Esau/Edom was the progenitor of the Edomites and Turks. These Idumeans (Edomites) had been incorporated within Judaea by John Hyrcanus and had been compulsorily circumcised and had largely accepted the religion of the Judaeans (Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews, xiii.9,1; xiii.25). So completely, that in Christ's Time, the Idumeans/Edomites had the ascendancy and ruled over Judaea as "Jews" ... as "unbelieving Jews," That is, the Herods, the Kings of Judea, were of Idumean origin and as "Jews" ruled over the two races (Israelites and Edomites) as one people.

    Flavius Josephus wrote, "there was a certain friend of Hyrcanus, an Idumean, called Antipater" (Antiquities of the Jews, xiv.I). When, Herod, the son of the Idumean, Antipater "received the kingdom, he slew all the members of this Sanhedrin" (Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews, ix). Why? Because Herod was an Edomite and not a Judahite and the sitting members of the Sanhedrin were all Israelites and/or Judahites and Benjaminites of the House of Judah. Herod, the Idumean, the Edomite, assassinated all of them, the Judahites, and replaced them with his cronies and sycophants.

    Thus, the modern word "Jew," correctly means "Judaean" or resident of Judaea, whether Edomite/Idumean or Judahite.

    Before the 18th century, there was no such word as "Jew" in the Holy Bible. The word was first used by the 17th century English redactors of the King James Bible as a cognate of two other words. However, crucially, it has a different and contrary meaning to the two words it has replaced. One of the words referred to someone who was a Judahite, one who was born into the Tribe of Judah, and the other word described one who was a resident of Judaea. To be more precise, the word "Jew" was used by the English redactors interchangeably for three different racial groups. These are:

    1. ISRAELITES of the House of Israel living in Judaea, the remnants of the Twelve Tribes.

    2. JUDAHITES, or ISRAELITES of the House of Judah, one of the Twelve Tribes.

    3. JUDAEANS (including Israelites and others but especially EDOMITES, the descendants of Esau) all residents of Judaea but especially those who were identified by Christ as "Jews" and "religious leaders" begotten "of your father the devil."

    All authorities on the subject admit to this. For instance, the 1980 Jewish Almanac in its article entitled "A brief History of the Terms for Jew," states:

    "Strictly speaking it is incorrect to call an Ancient Israelite a 'Jew' or to call a contemporary Jew an Israelite or a Hebrew" (p. 3).
    Thus, at the time of Christ's Flesh Mission on Earth all JUDAHITES were ISRAELITES but not all ISRAELITES were JUDAHITES, while very few JUDAEANS were either JUDAHITES or ISRAELITES.

    In short: Jesus was not a "Jew." .... he was a Judahite .... of the Bloodline of Judah and a direct decedent of King David and so an Israelite ... and he lived in Galilee and not Judaea.

    Similarly, there was never a Jew nation, nor was there ever a "Jew" race in the ancient world and no "Jew" stood before Mount Sinai when Yahweh delivered the Law to Israel. In short: Yahweh never made any covenant with "the Jews" since they did not exist at the time. Thus, gentle reader, there are therefore two common misapprehensions that have caused great confusion in Church affairs, in theological discussions and so in proper understanding of Bible prophecy and of History: that Jesus was a Jew and that Christianity came out of Judaism. Concomitant with these two great falsehoods is another: that Western Civilisation has a so-called Judaeo-Christian heritage. Gentle reader, understand this most important thing: Western Christian Civilisation arose entirely separate from the Judaic spirituality .. from Pharisaism and owes nothing to it. Thus, there fundamental facts to consider:

    Jesus was not a Jew.
    Christianity did not arise out of Judaism/Pharisaism
    Western Civilisation has no such thing called the "Judaeo-Christian heritage."

    makes for interesting reading.
