Q - N - A About Jesus
This Lesson is offered as an addendum between Lessons 6 and 8. In the future
we are going to try and take a little different path regarding the identification of
the Christian Testament from that of the Hebrew Testament.
Dear Ones, I take exception with the use of words like OT, (Old Testament) NT (New Testament) and would like to share why.
The Word 'Scripture" occurs 31 times In the Christian Testament. The Word Scriptures occur 21 times in the Christian Testament. Jesus is quoted as having said 'It is Written 26 times in the Gospels. It is written is found an additional 67 times in the Christian Testament.
Reader do you realize everyone of these 145 reference are to the Jewish Scriptures. At the time each of these verses were quoted Christian Testament did not exist.
The Christian Testament does not speak one word on tithing.
Are Christians ready to give up Psalms 23 and Psalms 91?
All reference to the coming of the is from the Jewish Scriptures. In fact Christians try to prove that Jesus is the Messiah using the very book they teach is done away with...
Paul wrote in 2 Timothy, 'All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. When Paul wrote these words the Christian Testament did not exist.
Dr Norman Geisler (PhD, Loyola University), Southern Evangelical Seminary and author of coauthor of over fifty books and Dr. William E. Nix (A.B., Wayne State University; A.M. University of Michigan; Ph.D., University of Oklahoma), former Dean of Southern Evangelical Seminary together wrote, A General Introduction to the Bible, Moody Press. In there book they state that the Christian Testament has more than 100,000 errors. Dr Josh McDowell, author of Evidence that demands a verdict states there are over 150,000 error in the Christian Testament.
King David stated in Psalms 19 that the Torah of The Lord (meaning Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy) is perfect restoring the soul.
Dear one why would God do away with the Torah and replace it with a mistake ridden Christian Testament?
The words Old Testament and New Testament are divisive. They pit Christian, Jews and Noachides against each other. Words like Christian Testament, Christian Scriptures or Christian Bible and Words like Hebrew Bible or Jewish Scriptures or the Hebrew Bible are accurate without offense. These are the words I encourage those who love God and there fellow human to use.
Blessings, Love and Peace,
Dr. Akiva Gamliel
