Dear Ones, recently I began a dialogue entitled 'Discussions About Jesus - Is Rabbi Jesus the Moshiach / the Messiah? In the course of our conversation in the video and in the written text I stated that there were mistakes in Rabbi Jesus genealogy. One purpose in sharing this information is to show SERIOUS MISTAKES what Christians call The New Testament. This is Spurious and inauthentic. Why?
Christians and Christian Messianic's claims the Lord God replaced the Hebrew Scriptures which they [Christians] refer to as 'The Old Testament'. This is claim is entirely BOGUS! Let me explain why.
In the video 'Discussions About Jesus - Is Rabbi Jesus the Moshiach / the Messiah? I mentioned that in the book entitled Introduction To The Bible by Dr. Norman L. Geisler and Dr. William Nix published by Mody Press [A Christian Publisher]. On page 361 they discuss what they call variants which is a fancy word for ERRORS! They say that if there 200,000 variants in the 'existing manuscripts' ... One of the problems is the term 'existing manuscripts' Christians have no original manuscripts. Christians were careless when copying their texts. This is evident by the existing manuscripts they do have. Dr. Norman L. Geisler and Dr. William Nix write 'if one single word is misspelled in 3,000 different manuscripts this is counted as 3,000 variants...' How convenient!
Christian Pastors, Evangelists and Scholars how can you claim what you call The New Testament to be Divinely Inspired? How dare you!! You preach from your pulpits that God's Word is perfect which is true then you claim the New Testament is God's Word! This is Man-made and untruthful!! Scholars omit and hide words in translations. I discuss this in my book God's Plan From The Beginning. God Willing my book, God's Plan From The Beginning will be published soon.
Let's PROPERLY discuss the intended meaning of the terms Scriptures as used in The Foreign Testament. EVERY REFERENCE TO 'SCRIPTURES' in The Foreign Testament is ONLY in reference to the Hebrew Scriptures! I challenge you to dispute this! When Rabbi Paul wrote to his 'Beloved Son', Timothy saying. 'All Scripture is Given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness his reference to Scripture was ONLY to The Hebrew Scriptures! There was no Christian Cannon at that time. The formation of a Christian cannon did not exist! So please stop misrepresenting the intent.
You falsely claim that Jeremiah's reference to a new covenant in Jeremiah 31.31 is your present day The New Testament. This is taradiddle!
The Torah of The Lord is PERFECT, reviving the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the Commandment of The Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of The Lord is clean, enduring for ever; the judgments of The Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, even very fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them is your servant warned; and in keeping of them there is great reward.
You change the meaning of the Scripture by writing 'Law' instead of The Torah. Does Torah mean Law? Yes! In this instance and in most other Torah means much more than the Law. Torah means the Law within the Five Books known as Ha Torah! The Torah is Bereisheit / Genesis, Shemot / Exodus, Vayikra / Leviticus, BaMidbar / Numbers and Devarim / Deuteronomy. To translate Torah as Law is a misrepresentation of the Truth. This is deception! David is saying the Five Books are Perfect! There are no errors! King David is right.
Think about this.
Why would the Lord God replace The Perfect Torah with the error filled mistake ridden contradictive book Christians call The New Testament? The Lord God would not! Variants are not permitted in a Divinely Inspired book! I have shown numerous errors like Matthew 1.17 Matthew writes there are fourteen generations from the carrying into Babylon until Rabbi Jesus birth. I have shown there are five missing names in the genealogy Matthew wrote in Matthew 1.
This is an error beyond those mentioned in Introduction to the Bible. Matthew says 'Now the first day of unleavened bread the disciples came to Jesus, asking him where do you want us to prepare thePassover meal? Matthew 26:17. And the disciples did as Jesus had appointed them. They prepared the Passover Sedar. Now when the eve was come Jesus sat down with the twelve. Matthew 26:19 - 20 Mark makes sure that we understand that this was in fact just before the Passover. Mark says, And the firs day of unleavened bread, when they killed the Passover Lamb, his disciples asked him Where do you want us to prepare the Passover Sedar? Mark14:17 The Passover Lamb is killed in the evening between sundown and nightfall at the very end of the 14th day of the first month.At nightfall the day changed from the 14th to the 15th. At nightfall the Passover Sedar began. Mark continues, 'And in the evening he came with the twelve. And he did eat... Mark 14:17 - 18. Luke offers a similar story. Now John contradicts Matthew, Mark and Luke. He writes, Now BEFORE the feast of the Passover... This is what Christians refer to as The Last Super. Matthew, Mark and Luke say it was the evening of Passover. Joh contradicts them saying this was before the Festival of the Passover. Read the stories all are about the judgment and death of Rabbi Jesus. It is because of mistakes like the that I reference what Christians call The New Testament as The Foreign Testament.
Can you recognize a mistake when you see one? The writer of Acts says, 'Then Joseph sent for his Father and all his relatives, threescore and fifteen souls, Acts 7:14.
And the sons of Joseph, who were born to him in Egypt, were two souls; all the souls of the house of Jacob, who came to Egypt, were seventy, i.e threescore and ten.
The Perfect Torah Says threescore and ten. This is a know fact! Yet, the writer of Acts says, threescore and fifteen souls.
This is written in such a way that the mistake is difficult to find. The Genealogies in Matthew and Luke are written opposite each other. This makes it difficult to understand.
It is because of the 150,000 to 200,000 variants and the mistakes and the contradictions that i refer to what Christians call The New Testament as The Foreign Testament.
I would also add that when Christian Messianic's attempted to translate The Foreign Testament into Hebrew and Yiddish there early editions have translation errors.
Now with regards to the claim that Jeremiah 31.31 is in reference to The New Testament. The Covenant of the Lord God is 'FOREVER'!
And I will establish my covenant between me and you and your seed after you in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God to you, and to your seed after you.
He who is born in your house, and he who is bought with your money, must be circumcised; and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.
And God said, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son indeed; and you shall call his name Isaac; and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.
Leviticus 27.44 - 45
And yet for all that, when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not cast them away, nor will I loathe them, to destroy them utterly, and to break my covenant with them; for I am the Lord their God. But I will for their sakes remember the covenant of their ancestors, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the nations, that I might be their God; I am the Lord.
Psalms 105.8 - 11
He has remembered his covenant for ever, the word which He Commanded to a thousand generations. The covenant which He Made with Abraham, and his oath to Isaac; And Confirmed the same to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant; Saying, To you I will give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance.
Discussing the Covenant is more than just drawing a target on Jeremiah 31.31!
הִנֵּה יָמִים בָּאִים נְאֻם־יְהֹוָה וְכָרַתִּי אֶת־בֵּית יִשְׂרָאֵל וְאֶת־בֵּית יְהוּדָה בְּרִית חֲדָשָׁה: לא
Behold days are coming, The Lord Uttered, and cut everything from The Aleph to The Tav of the the House of Israel and everything from The Aleph to The Tav of the House of Judah a New Covenant.
Jeremiah 31.30 [KJV 31.31]
Behold, the days come, says The Lord, that I Will Make a renewed Covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah;
The Covenant was not with the Christians in the church in Roman [Romans], The Covenant was not with the Christians in the church in Corinth, Greece [1,2 Corinthians]. The Covenant was not with the Christians in the Church in Galatia a former province of Rome which is present day Turkey, [Galatians], The Covenant is not with the Christians in the church in Ephesus which is present day Turkey [Ephesians], The Covenant is not with the Christians in the church in Philippi [a suburb of Rome], The Covenant is not with the Christians in the church in Colosse which is present day Turkey [ Colossians], The Covenant is not with the Christians in the church in Thessalonica a port city in present day Greece [1,2 Thessalonians], The Covenant is not with Titus, Philemon and Timothy who each were Christians not of the House of Israel.
The point is The Lord Said, 'I Will Make a renewed Covenant with The House of Israel, and with The House of Judah.' The Christian New Testament is clearly not the House of Israel or the House of Judah. These are Christians. The Covenant of The Lord God is the descendants of Abraham. Suggesting that The Christian New Testament replaces The Covenant with The People of Israel is defamation of the Truth in The Scriptures!!
Jeremiah 31.31 [KJV 31.32]
Not according to The Covenant that I Made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; my covenant which they broke, although I was their master, Says The Lord;
Jeremiah clearly identifies a bond and a relationship with 'their fathers' who were delivered from slavery in Egypt. Do you understand that the descendants identified above are not from The House of Israel or Judah and were not delivered from bondage in Egypt?
Jeremiah 31.32 [KJV 31.33
But this shall be The Covenant that I will make with The House of Israel; After those days, Says The Lord, I will put My Torah in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be My people. The Lord God is going to Write The Torah that we have today on the hearts of The People of Israel NOT the christian New Testament!!
Remember Christians use the Word Law for The Torah. - This is what really ZAPS ME... Lets review this hypocritical claim by Christians.
But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days says the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts and write [The Law] in their hearts; and will be their God and they shall be my people.
Here is the ZAP. Christians say the Old Testament is done away with. They say The Old Testament has been replaced with The New Testament. THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE SAYING!! They say the foundation for The New Testament is Jeremiah 31.31. Yet the passages in Jeremiah 31 describe the 'New Covenant' as The Lord God writing 'The Law' on the hearts of the House of Israel. In other Words The New Covenant is The Law that Christians openly protest and despise. Christians teach they are not under the law.
For sin shall not have dominion over you because you are not under the law, Romans 6:14.
This is a lie! Rabbi Paul knew better. He taught Christians they are not under Ha Torah, i.e. The Law but you are. Everyone is. What do you think the Law is?
The Law Teaches do not kill.
Do not steal.
Honor your mother and father.
We should love The Lord our Gods with all your heart.
We should not take the Name of the Lord God in vain.
The Law teaches tithing.
The Law Teaches respect.
The Law Teaches morality.
The Law Teaches a man should not lay with a man like one lays with his wife.
The Law teaches one should be fair in judgment.
The law teaches kindness to animals.
Yet, Christians Pastors and Evangelists and scholars teach you are not under the law. This is absurd!
