NJB (New Jerusalem Bible) Isaiah 66 whole chapter
  • Before we start the next parsha, I want to talk
    about the word Yahweh. It is used in the
    Jerusalem Bible Translatiuon well be using
  • There is no Yahweh!
  • Yahweh is an Arabic slur.
  • What the Arabs did was they took Yud Hey Vav Hey
    and they changed the Hebrew Vav into the Arabic
    letter Wah and thus came up with Yahweh
    rather then Yehova.

NJB (New Jerusalem Bible) Isaiah 66 whole chapter
  • Hebrew Scholars in Israel NEVER use the word
    Yahweh because they know where it came from.
  • It is a new thing, it gained popularity about a
    hundred years ago when 2 German archeologists
    heard the word Yahweh being used by the Arabs.
  • But it is nothing more then a slur.

NJB (New Jerusalem Bible) Isaiah 66 whole chapter
  • "Concerted effort has been underway for the past
  • several generations to alter the pronunciation of
  • the Divine Name, known as the Tetragrammaton,
  • from Yehovah into the Egyptian slur, Yahweh.
  • In spite of these efforts, there is compelling
  • to stick with the traditional pronunciation."

  • 3 Some slaughter a bull, some kill a human being,
    some sacrifice a lamb, some strangle a dog, some
    present an offering of pig's blood, some burn
    memorial incense, a revolting blessing all these
    people have chosen their own ways and take
    delight in their disgusting practices.

NJB (New Jerusalem Bible) Isaiah 66 whole chapter
  • 4 I too take delight in making fools of them, I

    regard as evil, have chosen what displeases me.

NJB (New Jerusalem Bible) Isaiah 66 whole chapter
  • 5 Listen to the word of Yehova, you who tremble

    show his glory, let us witness your joy!' But
    they will be put to shame.

NJB (New Jerusalem Bible) Isaiah 66 whole chapter

    Before the birth pangs came, she has been
    delivered of a child.

NJB (New Jerusalem Bible) Isaiah 66 whole chapter
  • 8 Who ever heard of such a thing, who ever saw
    anything like this? Can a country be born in one
    day? Can a nation be brought forth all at once?
    For Zion, scarcely in labour, has brought forth
    her children!

    burning, his rebukes with flaming fire.

    judgement, and by his sword, on all people and

    the one in the centre, who eat the flesh of pigs,
    revolting things and rats their deeds and their
    thoughts will perish together, declares Yehova.

    their survivors to the nations to Tarshish, Put,

    coasts and islands that have never heard of me or
    seen my glory. They will proclaim my glory to the

    your brothers as an offering to Yehova, on
    horses, in chariots, in litters, on mules and on

    vessels to Yehova's house.

Mark 91-12(Check for David on Net)
  • KJV Mark 91 And he said unto them, Verily I say
    unto you, That there be some of them that stand
    here, which shall not taste of death, till they
    have seen the kingdom of God come with power.
  • 2 And after six days Jesus taketh with him
    Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up
    into an high mountain apart by themselves and he
    was transfigured before them.

Mark 91-12
  • 3 And his raiment became shining, exceeding white
    as snow so as no fuller on earth can white them.
  • 4 And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses
    and they were talking with Jesus.
  • 5 And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master,
    it is good for us to be here and let us make
    three tabernacles one for thee, and one for
    Moses, and one for Elias.

Mark 91-12
  • 6 For he wist not what to say for they were sore
  • 7 And there was a cloud that overshadowed them
    and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This
    is my beloved Son hear him.
  • 8 And suddenly, when they had looked round
    about, they saw no man any more, save Jesus only
    with themselves.

Mark 91-12
  • 9 And as they came down from the mountain, he
    charged them that they should tell no man what
    things they had seen, till the Son of man were
    risen from the dead.
  • 10 And they kept that saying with themselves,
    questioning one with another what the rising from
    the dead should mean.

Mark 91-12
  • 11 And they asked him, saying, Why say the
    scribes that Elias must first come?
  • 12 And he answered and told them, Elias verily
    cometh first, and restoreth all things and how
    it is written of the Son of man, that he must
    suffer many things, and be set at nought.

Todays Joke
  • Ira Goldberg was in front of me heading out of
    the Synagogue one day, and as always our rabbi
    was standing at the door shaking hands as the
    congregation departed.
  • The rabbi grabbed Ira by the hand and pulled him
  • The rabbi lunged these words at him, "You need to
    join the Army of G-d!"
  • Ira riposted, "I'm already in the Army of God,
  • Rabbi questioned, "How come I don't see you
    except for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur?"

Todays Joke
  • He whispered back, "I'm in the secret service."

Messianic Judaism 101
  • By Rabbi Stanley

  • What I hope to do in this series (Messianic
    Judaism 101) is lay out an historical and
    Biblical basis (foundation) for restoring
    Messianic Judaism as the original faith in
    Yeshua, the Son of G-d.

  • By the end of this series we will know the
    beginnings of the First Church, and where the
    Messianic Movement is now going.

  • In this class well be able to look at and
    understand some critical terminology and what
    different names were used for the First Century
    Believer in Yeshua.

  • Well find out what some of the earliest Church
    Fathers have to say about the First Messianics
    and how they felt about them.

  • Were also gonna find out if Christian is a
    four letter word.
  • Then were gonna find out who YOU are and what
    you should or want to be called?

  • But before we can know anything else, we have to
    know its history. We have to know the roots of
    the First Church.

  • There is a lot of talk out there these days about
    getting back to our roots or getting back to the
    New Testament Church.

  • One thing many fail to realize is that the
    original New Testament Church didnt have a New
    Testament OR a Church.

  • What they did have was the Tanach (Old Testament
    in Hebrew) and the Synagogue.

  • At the time of the original group of Believers in
    Yeshua the word Christian hadnt even been
    coined yet and neither had the word Church.

  • This helps us understand that Yeshua didnt come
    to start a new religion called Christianity, He
    came to be the Messiah of Israel.

Whos who?
  • Now the first thing we want to look at is whos
    who in the first Messianic movement.

Whos who?
  • We cant know anything till we know who is who so
    we have to understand what they (Believers) were
  • Terminology is important.

Whos who?
  • The first group of people who followed Yeshua
    were called the people of The Way. Not
  • They were a mix of Pharisees, Sadducees and other
  • We see the first time The Way is used in Acts

Whos who?
  • Acts 2414
  • 14 "But this I do admit to you I worship the God
    of our fathers in accordance with The Way (which
    they call a sect). I continue to believe
    everything that accords with the Torah and
    everything written in the Prophets.

Whos who?
  • Another thing we need to notice here is that it
    is called a sect (section, part of a whole)
  • A sect of what?
  • A sect of Judaism!
  • How is the word sect used in the New Testament?

Whos who?
  • Acts 517Then the high priest rose up, and all
    they that were with him, (which is the sect of
    the Sadducees,) and were filled with indignation.
  • Acts 155But there rose up certain of the sect
    of the Pharisees which believed, saying, That it
    was needful to circumcise them, and to command
    them to keep the law of Moses.

Whos who?
  • There were many sects of Judaism. There were the
    Essenes, The Dead Sea Sect, The Herodian Sect,
    The Daggermen (Sicarii) etc. Many different sects
    and one of them was the sect of the
    Notzreem/Netzareem (Nazerenes)

Whos who?
  • The word Christian first appears in Acts
  • Acts 1126And when he had found him, he brought
    him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a
    whole year they assembled themselves with the
    church, and taught much people. And the students
    (disciples) were called Christians first in

Whos who?
  • David Stern points out correctly that the term
    Christian was used to denote Gentile believers
    in Yeshua, not Jewish believers in Yeshua.
  • (David Stern Messianic Manifesto)

Whos who?
  • Where is Antioch?

Whos who?
  • Who was in Antioch?
  • Paul and Barnabas!
  • Their students, in Antioch were called

Whos who?
  • Its not saying that THE Disciples were first
    called Christians in Antioch its saying that
    the disciples of Paul and Barnabas were first
    called Christians there.
  • Paul and Barnabas werent even part of the 12
    Disciples. They were apostles!

Whos who?
  • The people of Antioch were Gentiles, NOT Jews.
  • The Jews who believed in Yeshua were the Jewish
    sect of the Nazarenes!
  • They called themselves Jews.

Whos who?
  • Acts 2139
  • But Paul said, I am a man which am a Jew of
    Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, a citizen of no mean
    city and, I beseech thee, suffer me to speak
    unto the people.
  • More specifically in his particular case he
    called himself a Pharisee in Acts 236

Whos who?
  • Acts 236
  • Then Paul, knowing that some of them were
    Sadducees and the others Pharisees, called out in
    the Sanhedrin, "My brothers, I am a Pharisee, the
    son of a Pharisee. I stand on trial because of my
    hope in the resurrection of the dead."

The Law?
  • Im gonna stray just a little here, but it ties
    back shortly
  • These first Believers in Yeshua kept the Laws of
    the Old Testament (Tanach).
  • The famous Church Father, St. Jerome (350 AD),
    who was a Christian says this of the original

The Law?
  • He said, They are those who accept Messiah in
    such a way that they do not cease to observe the
    old Law
  • St Epiphanius
  • (310 AD), another Christian and Church Father
    goes into a little more detail

The Law?
  • These sectarians didnt call themselves
    Christians but Nazarenes, however they are simply
    complete Jews. They use not only the New
    Testament but the Old Testament as well. They
    have no different ideas but profess everything
    exactly as the Law proclaims it in the Jewish
    fashion. Except for their belief in Messiah if
    you please! For they acknowledge the resurrection
    of the dead and the divine creation of all things
    and declare that God is one and that his son,
    Yeshua is the Messiah. They are trained to a
    nicety in Hebrew for among them the entire Law,
    the prophets and the entire Writings are read in
    Hebrew as they surely are by the Jews. They
    disagree with Jews because they have come to
    faith in Messiah but since they are still
    fettered in the Law, circumcision, the Sabbath
    and the rest they are not in accord with
    Christians, they are nothing but Jews. They have
    the good news in Mathew in its entirety in
    Hebrew. For it is clear that they still preserve
    this in the Hebrew alphabet as it was originally

The Law?
  • Wouldnt it be great to have this as a statement
    of faith!!!
  • Whats your statement of faith?
  • Actually, our statement of faith is one of YOUR
    Church Fathers criticisms. We believe in the Old
    Testament, Keeping the Sabbath Holy

The Law?
  • So here we see the First Church keeping the
    Shabbat and circumcision and the rest of the Law.
  • They were quite different then the Christian
    Church as early as 310 AD!

The Law?
  • Epiphanius says they are not in accord with
  • So you can begin to see why I dont call myself a
    Christian. Even from way back most Christians
    werent really Christian.

The Law?
  • So we know that the original Jewish Believers
    were called Jews. More specifically a Person of
    The Way.
  • (Later on they were called Notzreem/Nazarenes.)

The Law?
  • More specifically they could be a Pharisaic
    Notzreem or an Essenic Notzreem or Herodian
    Notzreem etc.
  • But never were Jews from the first century called
  • Furthermore, a Christian Jew is a contradiction
    of terms.

Is Christian A Four Letter Word?
  • Gentile Believers in Yeshua were called
    Christians and it was actually a derogatory label
    placed on them
  • It was not a name they gave themselves.

Is Christian A Four Letter Word?
  • Well isn't Paul called a Christian by King
    Agrippa in Acts 17???
  • Lets look at it

Is Christian A Four Letter Word?
  • Acts 1728
  • Then Agrippa said to Paul, 'Do you think that in
    such a short time you can persuade me to be a
    Christian?'" (NIV)

Is Christian A Four Letter Word?
  • Herod Agrippa was the grandson of Herod the
  • He was NOT a Jew.
  • Do you remember the teaching I did on Herod the

Is Christian A Four Letter Word?
  • I showed you his lineage. He was the son of an
    Idumean and a Nabatean princess. Not a drop of
    Jewish blood in him.
  • Some ask me why it was important to know about
    King Herod? Its pretty important.

Is Christian A Four Letter Word?
  • Youll see me coming back to the Herod teaching
    time and time again.

Is Christian A Four Letter Word?
  • The word "Christian" appears only three times in
    the New Testament.
  • The New Testament's use of this term indicates
    that it was a term of derision, a term placed
    upon Gentile followers of Yeshua, by their

Is Christian A Four Letter Word?
  • What if somebody calls you a Christian, what
    should you do?
  • Peter 416 "However, if you suffer as a
    Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that
    you bear that name"

Is Christian A Four Letter Word?
  • Peter was talking to Believers here!
  • Christian obviously was a name that Believers
    didnt like.

Is Christian A Four Letter Word?
  • But Peter says if they call you this name, praise
    G-d for it.
  • And Peter is correct here.
  • Even though Im a Jew, if Im called a Christian
    by a persecutor, Ill bear it gladly.
  • They can call me anything they like for the cause
    of Yeshua.

Then What In The World Am I?
  • That doesnt mean Id call myself that and it
    doesnt mean you have to call yourself that
    either if you so choose.
  • How do we know that Christians didnt call
    themselves Christian?
  • Lets look at the Bible in Acts 1126 again

Then What In The World Am I?
  • Acts 1126And when he had found him, he brought
    him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a
    whole year they assembled themselves with the
    church, and taught much people. And the students
    (disciples) were called Christians first in

Then What In The World Am I?
  • In Greek if you place a name on yourself youd
    say you call yourself or they called
  • If someone else is calling you something, youd
    say they were called
  • This was a name forced on them.

Then What In The World Am I?
  • So then what should a Gentile Believer call
    themselves? Who are they?

Then What In The World Am I?
  • A Believer is an ok name. But A Believer in
    what? would be a good question.
  • A Messianic Believer is a good name. That
    denotes that its about the Meshiach.

Then What In The World Am I?
  • If youre keeping the particular Laws that apply
    to the Jewish people then you can call yourself a
    Messianic Jew or a Jew even if you dont have any
    Jewish blood.
  • How can I say that?

Then What In The World Am I?
  • Because if youre keeping the covenantal Laws,
    you ARE a Jew!!!
  • If youre a Gentile believer but do not keep the
    covenantal laws and you call yourself a Jew.
  • The Bible says youre of the synagogue of Satan.

Then What In The World Am I?
  • Revelation 29
  • 9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty,
    (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of
    them which say they are Jews, and are not, but
    are the synagogue of Satan.

Then What In The World Am I?
  • Thats exactly what that verse is talking about.
  • If youve ever said Im a spiritual Jew but
    youre not keeping covenant. Please stop saying
    it. Theres no such thing.
  • Just like theres no such thing as a spiritual
  • Either youre a Jew or your not!

Then What In The World Am I?
  • If youre keeping Sabbath, if youre a male and
    circumcised, you wear the tzit tzits, you keep
    Biblically Kosher, youre doing your best to keep
    all the other laws as you learn about them
    welcome to the family.

Then What In The World Am I?
  • But, if you believe G-ds Laws are of no effect
    and/or dont have any Jewish blood and call
    yourself a Jew youre of a different synagogue.
  • Theres a lot of Messianic synagogues that bear
    resemblance to what Im saying here.

Then What Should I Be?
  • So why in the world would you want to be a Jew?
    What advantage is there?
  • I have one answer to that

Then What Should I Be?
  • Romans 31
  • 1What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit
    is there of circumcision?
  •  2Much in every way. chiefly, because that unto
    them were committed the oracles of God.

Then What Should I Be?
  • If one wants to be a Jew, then come on board.
  • But let me tell ya
  • It aint easy.
  • Were the most persecuted people on the planet.
  • You may have to give up many things that ya like

Then What Should I Be?
  • Gotta observe all the commandments given to the
    Jewish people that pertain to you (male or female
  • Its really hard at first but you do come to love
    them and understand that they are beneficial and
  • Before long, youll actually look for more
    Instruction (Torah).

Then What Should I Be?
  • If you want to stay a Messianic Gentile, no
    problem. Youre still our brother or sister in
  • Simply put, there are promises for Believing
    Gentiles and there are promises for Believing

Then What Should I Be?
  • Different promises but never-the-less promises.
  • Believing Gentiles will receive a portion of the
    World to come outside of Israel
  • And the Believing Jew will receive a portion of
    HaAretz (Israel) in the World to come.

Messianic Judaism?
  • So what the Messianic movement is trying to do
    now is get back to the way it was during Yeshuas
  • We feel weve been going down this Paganized
    Christian road for 2,000 plus years and now its
    time to stop and get back on track.

Messianic Judaism?
  • That doesnt mean we have to go back to wearing
    robes, but it does mean that we have to keep His
    Laws and Commandments in order to be a part of
    the Covenant.

Messianic Judaism?
  • We encourage Gentiles to keep covenant for a
    variety of reasons.
  • For one it is a healthier lifestyle.
  • For two there are advantages in every way (not
    meaning the Greek 100)

Messianic Judaism?
  • This is NOT Judaizing!
  • Judaizing is saying you cant be SAVED unless you
    keep the Peculiar Laws of the Jewish covenant
    with G-d.
  • Otherwise if you told someone to not murder,
    youd be a Judaizer!

Messianic Judaism?
  • A gentile who doesnt keep the Peculiar Laws is
    just as Saved or Born Again, as I am.
  • After Salvation there are differences.
  • This really isnt that different then how the
    Church sees it

Messianic Judaism?
  • In a Church, if I sacrifice a lot for G-d (ie.
    fasting) will a Pastor tell me that that causes
    me to grow closer to G-d?
  • Yes, he will say that.
  • If I sacrifice my very life, hed say I have
    treasures in heaven through eternity as a martyr.

Messianic Judaism?
  • Im saying if you become a Messianic Jew, you
    will be sacrificing a lot and in turn, you will
    grow closer to G-d.
  • Its really not that different in that regard.

Messianic Judaism?
  • We even see this in the model of the Temple.
  • In the very structure of the building we see
    where G-ds Shechina rested. His throne was in
    the holy of holies.
  • Further away from His throne was the holy place.

Messianic Judaism?
  • Further away from G-ds throne was the Court of
    the Jews and the furthest away from that was the
    court of the gentiles,

Messianic Judaism?
  • They were on the outskirts because they didnt
    want to get circumcised and keep all the peculiar
  • They were Saved, no doubt about that, but they
    didnt get to look into the inner Temple.

Messianic Judaism?
  • Speaking metaphorically, I want to look into
    G-ds inner Temple. I want to see the holy of
    holies, at least the Holy Place.
  • Im not saying that a Gentile Believer cant grow
    in the L-rd, but I do have to agree with Paul
    that there are advantages to being a Jew.

Messianic Judaism?
  • For women, its really quite easy being a Jew
  • If youre a man and not yet circumcised not so
  • But its worth it.

Messianic Judaism?
  • I truly believe that if you become a Messianic
    Jew, G-d will open up the Scriptures to you
    because it becomes your inheritance.
  • Being given the Oracles of G-d is a great
    advantage, it means G-d gives us a better
    understanding of His Scriptures!
  • Why else do we need Messianic Judaism?

The Whole Counsel Of G-d
  • The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the
  • We say this phrase in front of a court of Law
    here in the United States
  • But few in Christendom approach Scripture this

The Whole Counsel Of G-d
  • In most Churches today were presented a
    one-sided, Gentilized version of a faith that
    shows us only the grace of God without showing us
    His expectations as well.

The Whole Counsel Of G-d
  • This one sided view is only a partial gospel and
    not the whole truth
  • At best Id say the Church isnt presenting the
    whole counsel of G-d and at its worst Id say
    its presenting another Gospel all together.

The Whole Counsel Of G-d
  • Paul said in Acts 2027
  • I did not shrink from declaring to you the whole
    counsel of God.
  • What did he mean by that.
  • Paul in this chapter was warning Believers that
    wolves would come in among them.

The Whole Counsel Of G-d
  • These wolves would teach false doctrines and try
    to lead the elect into darkness.
  • Todays Grace Theology is doing exactly that.

The Whole Counsel Of G-d
  • Grace Theology is the idea that Whenever we
    commit a sin, we simply ask Jesus to forgive us
    and nothing more is then required. His grace
    covers us.

The Whole Counsel Of G-d
  • This theology leaves out repentance, restitution,
    change of attitude and lifestyle as well as
    obedience to His Torah.

The Whole Counsel Of G-d
  • The Church as a whole ignores repentance because
    the Church teaches that we are sinful beings who
    cant stop sinning.

The Whole Counsel Of G-d
  • It contends that since we cant stop, then were
    not really responsible for our own sinful
  • Were born that way!

The Whole Counsel Of G-d
  • Christians will often tell Messianics that There
    are too many laws to keep anyways, its not even
    possible to keep them all.

The Whole Counsel Of G-d
  • Were born into sin right?
  • Its not our fault
  • So its really out of our control.
  • Jesus even said wed all sin, every one of us

The Whole Counsel Of G-d
  • This sadly and inevitably leads to the next
  • If its not possible to keep all of G-ds Laws,
    then why should we even try.
  • Besides, we sin everyday

The Whole Counsel Of G-d
  • This is a Gentile way of looking at Sin.
  • It isnt Jewish by any means.
  • This Church Gospel of Grace is only part of the
    message of Yeshua and His Talmideem (Disciples).
  • We need Messianic Judaism in order to give the
    whole council of G-d.

The Whole Counsel Of G-d
  • What the Church offers today isnt the whole
    counsel of G-d.
  • In Judaism we dont believe that G-d would tell
    us to do something that was impossible to do.
  • What kind of Father would do such a thing?

The Whole Counsel Of G-d
  • In Scripture we see one being told, Go and sin
    no more
  • Thus it IS possible to go and sin no more.
  • Why else do we need Messianic Judaism?
  • Because without it, the Great Commission can not
    be fulfilled.

The Great Commission?
  • Without the Jewishness of the Gospel infused into
    its teachings it is no longer a light unto the
    world but becomes foolishness.

The Great Commission?
  • Many times that sinners call Christians fools
    Im sorry, but its not for the Gospels sake.
  • Its often times because Christians are thinking
    and acting foolishly.
  • When were acting foolishly, were not a light to
    the world.

The Great Commission?
  • If the Church is NOT a light unto the world then
    it cant possibly fulfill the Great Commission
    no matter what theyre missions program might

The Great Commission?
  • Without the Jewishness of the Gospel all were
    left with is off-target preaching which is open
    to anti-Semitism and the neglect of the Salvation
    of the Jews.

The Great Commission?
  • Messianic Judaism comes in an opposite spirit of
    the Church concerning the Great Commission.
  • Messianic Judaism reveals that the power of the
    Great Commission lies in preaching it to the Jew
    first and then to the rest of the world.

The Great Commission?
  • Its said that Missions start at home!.
  • Id change that popular saying to Missions start
    with the Jew and wherever he/she may be
  • Why else do we need Messianic Judaism?

Provoke Jews To Jealousy
  • Romans 11 teaches that in the end days, the
    Church will make the Jew jealous.
  • If we think were in the End Days, then Id say
    Christendom must be at a point of provoking the
    Jew to jealousy right?

Provoke Jews To Jealousy
  • I dont know any Jews who are jealous yet.
  • What are they going to be jealous of?
  • Pagan Christmas trees
  • The worship of Ishtar (Easter)
  • Silly doctrines that we hold onto which are

Provoke Jews To Jealousy
  • Are they jealous of a power thats always talked
    about in the Church but very rarely (if at all)
  • I dont see any power in todays Church myself.

Provoke Jews To Jealousy
  • I do see rapidly declining numbers.
  • I see a bunch of con men who are still making
    millions everyday on TV deceiving people.
  • I see adultery, immorality, the breaking of the
    Sabbath and other Commandments.
  • I see doctrines that promote lawlessness.

Provoke Jews To Jealousy
  • I dont see any Jews who are jealous of that.
  • Were in the End Days but theres not one jealous

Provoke Jews To Jealousy
  • Id say there has to be some change in the local
  • A Church that changes to such a degree that it
    doesnt have any spots or wrinkles.
  • A Body of Believers that Yeshua would come back

Wheres The Beef?
  • I would submit to you, that a Congregation that
    is Torah Observant is a Body Hed come to take
  • Im not saying that there arent people who
    arent Saved in Churches out there

Wheres The Beef?
  • But I am saying that when the Last Days are upon
    us, we wont be going to Church to find out whats
  • Rather, the local Church will be going to their
    local Messianic Synagogue to get the latest news.

Wheres The Beef?
  • And if theyre staying for lunch, they wont be
    getting a ham sandwich.
  • And if they want to stand and read the
    Scriptures, theyre going to have to put on a
    Tallit or wear Tsit Tsits

Wheres The Beef?
  • They are going to have to conform or theyre
    going to have to go back to their Church and be
    left to their own doctrine, or deceit or

Wheres The Beef?
  • I want to read to you a typical confession that
    Jews who accepted Jesus used to have to say.
  • This was actually written up by Christians word
    for word.

Wheres The Beef?
  • I found it on a website that archives ancient
  • I was very angry when I read it.
  • Its a profession of faith that was world-wide
    that Jews would have to recite publicly in order
    to become a Christian.
  • Theyd have to say

I Gotta Say What???
  • I renounce all customs, rites, legalisms
    unleavened breads and sacrifices of lambs of the
    Hebrews, and all other feasts of the Hebrews,
    sacrifices, prayers, aspirations, purifications,
    sanctifications, and propitiations, and fasts,
    and Sabbaths, and superstitions, and hymns, and
    chants, and observances, and synagogues, and the
    food, and drink of the Hebrews in one word I
    renounce absolutely everything Jewish, every law,
    rite and custom and if afterwards I wish to deny
    and return to Jewish superstition or shall be
    found eating with Jews or feasting with them or
    secretly conversing and condemning the Christian
    religion instead of openly confuting them and
    condemning their vain faith then let the
    trembling of Cain and leprosy cleave to me as
    well as the legal punishments to which I
    acknowledge myself liable. And may I be anathema
    (a person detested or loathed ) in the world to
    come and may my soul be set down with Satan and
    the Devils.

I Gotta Say What???
  • So I wrote this up for Non-Messianics who wanted
    to become members of Messianic Synagogues.
  • (Im NOT implementing this ?).

I Gotta Say What???
  • I will no longer eat of the abomination of
    swines flesh. I will keep all of G-ds Laws that
    pertain to me and will not cause G-ds Chosen
    People to abandon the traditions of their
  • I will recognize and keep all of G-ds appointed
    times and feasts.
  • I will forsake the superstitions of the Church
    like the Christmas tree and the worship of Ishtar
    and other idols and saints.
  • I understand I am grafted into the main olive
    tree which is the faith of the Hebrews and I will
    remain humble and grateful to Yeshua for allowing
    me any place at all.
  • Whenever I hear other Christians misusing words
    such as legalism and Judaizing I will confute
    them in their vain interpretations.
  • I will enjoin in Messianic prayers, aspirations,
    purifications, sanctifications, and
    propitiations, and fasts, and Sabbaths, and
    hymns, and chants, and observances in their
    Synagogues and thank G-d for such a blessing to
    befall me.
  • Lastly, I repent for my non Torah Observance and
    misappropriation of my tithes and offerings to a
    Church who knew not the truth.
  • May I be accountable from this time forth that I
    may sin no more.
  • Omain.

I Gotta Say What???
  • If the Church as a whole were to do this
  • every Jew in the world would take notice and
    perhaps even be a little jealous.

I Gotta Say What???
  • The profession I read to you earlier that Jews
    had to say in order to be part of The Body of
    Christ dates back to the church of
  • But many of these same feelings exist today in
    most churches.

Conclusion Of Class One
  • These are just a few of the reasons that
    Messianic Judaism is a must.
  • Theres many more that well be seeing through
    the rest of this course.

Conclusion Of Class One
  • Well also look at why we do many of the things
    we do like
  • Why do we wear Tzit Tzits?
  • Why do we wear Tallits?
  • Why do we post Mezuzahs to our doorways?

Conclusion Of Class One
  • Why do we keep Shabbat?
  • Why do we keep Biblically kosher?
  • And why do we keep the Feasts of the L-rd?
  • All these questions will be answered.
  • Shabbat Shalom.
