"for salvation is of the jews"
was originally "hoti soteria esti ek Ioudaios"
"hoti" is Greek for "because", Strong's #3754.
"soteria" is Greek for "rescue or safety (physically or morally)"
"esti" is Greek for "he (she or it) is", Strong's #2076.
"ek" is Greek for "a primary preposition denoting origin, from, out
of", Strong's #1537.
"Ioudaios" (in the sense of 2455 as a country); Judaean, i.e. belonging to
Jehudah:--Jew(-ess), of Judaea, Strong's #2453
Most versions of the Holy Bible have "for salvation is *from* the jews".

As you know, the way the third person is
used in "esti" in Greek, the literal translation isn't as clear as the way it
would actually be said in English, which is "because you will be rescued from the
In English, we expect to see the subject first, the
vowel next, and the object last, but in Greek the verb comes first. That's why literal
translations from Greek are hard to understand sometimes, but the translators didn't want
to be accused of changing the meaning of a single word.
In context with the rest of this Scripture, there is
absolutely no way that "one of the most knowledgeable Bible scholars in the
nation" would misunderstand this--by accident. No Christian reading the Holy Bible
has to know Greek to understand that what Jesus Christ said to this Samaritan woman is
that He was there to rescue her from the jews.

Listen to this bs artist!! He's WAY off.
Here is exactly what Jesus said:
"These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded
them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans
enter ye not: But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And as ye go,
preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand." Mat 10:5-9
What Bobby Enyart wants you to believe, which is a BIG
FAT LIE, is that "the jews" were "the lost sheep of the house of
Israel". Jesus Christ came for the descendants of Jacob, which the jews are NOT, and
the jews crucified Him because He exposed them for the LIARS that they are. "The
jews" were Levites, not Israelites:
Numbers 1:47 But the Levites after the tribe of their
fathers were not numbered among them. Numbers 1:49 Only thou shalt not number the tribe of
Levi, neither take the sum of them among the children of Israel:
Each of the Twelve Tribes of Israel are listed in
Numbers in precise detail. There just can be no mistake about this.

> Paul in Acts 13:43, 45: "It was necessary that the word of God be

In the following Holy Scripture, Paul tells us that he was not a jew, but that he "became as a
jew to the jews" in order to be able to communicate with them. For his effort,
"the jews" tried to kill him. Paul's own writings tell of 14 separate
instances of "the jews" trying to kill him and there is evidence that Paul
finally died in prison at the hands of "the jews":
"And I became as a Jew to the Jews,
that I might gain Jews; to those under Law as under Law, that I might gain those under
Law; to those without Law as without Law (not being without Law of God, but under the law
of Christ), that I might gain those without Law. I became to the weak as weak, that I
might gain the weak. To all I have become all things, that in any and every way I might
save some. And I do this for the gospel, that I might become a fellow partaker of
it.", 1Co 9:20-23
These cannot be the words of a
"jew". These are the words of a Christian who tried valliantly but vainly to
bring the jews out of the TalMUDic trance which now consumes them and whose descendants
"His blood be on us, and on our children" Mat 27:25

Enyart is a jew. No Christian
accepts such obfuscation of The Holy Bible and blasphemy against Paul and Jesus Christ.
There is absolutely, positively no reference to Joshua, Elijah, Samuel, or
David being JEWS, anywhere in the entire Holy Bible. Do you know why?
BECAUSE THEY WERE ISRAELITES, NOT JEWS!
