A Samaritan is a Pure Israelite
Howbeit every nation made gods
of their own, and put [them] in the houses of the high places which the Samaritans had
made, every nation in their cities wherein they dwelt. 2Ki 17:29
All the people who Shalmaneser the king
of Assyria brought into Samaria from Babylon, Cuth, Nergal, Hamath, and the Avites,
Sepharvites, were known as "every nation". It was only the Israelites of
the northern ten Tribes who built Samaria who were known as "Samaritans".

NON-ISRAELITES IN SAMARIA ARE
GOY, NOT SAMARITANS
"Every nation" was translated
from the Hebrew word "goy" appearing together twice, a word closer in meaning to
race than to nation:
Howbeit every race
made gods of their own, and put [them] in the houses of the high places which the Samaritans had
made, every race in their cities wherein they dwelt. 2Ki 17:29
Of ten lepers in Samaria, only one was
saved, the one who was a Samaritan:
Luk 17:16 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him
thanks: and he was a Samaritan.
Luk 17:17 And Jesus answering
said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?
If Samaritans were Israelites, then why
would Jesus command His disciples to stay away from their cities?:
Mat 10:5 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:
Mat 10:6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
Just as today in the US, it's the
cities of the Israelites [read: Samaritans] which were overrun by mamzers.
Jesus didn't want to ignore the Israelites in the cities in Samaria, but when
residents of a village of the Samaritans "did not receive Him", He knew that
most of them weren't in the cities anyway:
9:52 And sent messengers before his face: and they
went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him.
9:53 And they did not receive him, because his face was
as though he would go to Jerusalem.
THE GOOD SAMARITAN WAS A
Jesus referred to the Samaritan in the
following Scripture as a "neighbor", translated from
"plesion" [#4139], which means fellow Israelite:
10:33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where
he was: and when he saw him, he had
compassion on him,
10:36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbor unto him that fell among the thieves?
THE WOMAN AT JACOB'S WELL WAS
When the Samaritan woman at the well
uttered the phrase "our father Jacob", she proved for all to see and hear, and
to Jesus, that she was a pure Israelite, not a mamzer. Just as mamzers today, had
she been of mixed race ancestry, she would have denied the sheer existence of Jacob, much
less would she have claimed that Jacob was their ancestor [father], proof that she and her
fellow Samaritans were pure Israelites:
Why would her fellow
Samaritans believe on Him [rather than the jews] had they not been pure Israelites?:
Joh 4:9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it
that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria?
for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.
4:12 Art thou greater than our
father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children,
and his cattle?
Joh 4:39 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He
told me all that ever I did.
So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they besought him that he would
tarry with them: and he abode there two days.
Joh 4:41 And many more believed because of his
Joh 4:42 And said unto the woman,
Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and
know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world.
The English word "world" is
translated from the Greek word "kosmos" [#2889] whose literal definition is
"orderly arrangment". It's only by implication that it's trranslated as
"world". So had they been mamzers, they might have been concerned about
some type of worldwide "salvation".
If they were pure Israelites, however,
their concern wouldn't have been "saving the world", but saving the holy seed
and maintaining the "orderly arrangement" established by God to protect and
propagate the holy seed.
SALVATION IS OF THE JEWS?
Judaeans (jews), Samaritans, and
The argument that Christians owe jews something is
often based on the misleading phrase "salvation is of the jews", implying that
jews can offer "salvation" to Israelites like the Samaritan woman to whom
Jesus was speaking when he said that.
Are jews going to offer the Samaritan woman the same
kind of "salvation" they offered Jesus? Crucifixion?
This misconception must be corrected. The Samaritan
woman said to Jesus:
"You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me
for a drink?" (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.  )
"Jews do not associate with Samaritans".
Do they also not associate with Galileans? This single passage reveals
that there was an obvious disagreement or at least a lot of mistrust between
"jews" from Judaea and Israelites in Samaria known as Samaritans. The rest of
this passage reveals that the disagreement was based genetic factors and not merely
geographical factors. Clearly she didn't know Jesus was a Galileean from Nazareth in
Galilee, and not a jew from Judaea. Just because she assumed he was a
"Jew", something Jesus never, ever claimed to be, doesn't make it a fact.
Instead, when she complained to Jesus about the "Jews" requiring Samaritans to
worship in Jerusalem rather than on "this mountain", Jesus gave her the good
news that she didn't have to bother to go to either place any longer to "worship the
20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but you
Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem."
21 Jesus declared, "Believe me, woman, a time is coming when you will worship the
Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem
Putting this in context, when Jesus said
"salvation is from the Jews", he clearly meant that she wasn't going to have to
worry about the jews forcing her and her people, the Israelites, to go to Jerusalem to
"worship the Father" After four centuries of cramming the obscene
principles of the Talmud down the throats of both Samaritans and Galileeans, what kind of
"salvation" could jews ever hope to offer a pure Israelite descendant of Jacob?:
22 You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we
worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews.
Some translations say "for salvation is OF the
Jews", like the one cited above. This gets a bit confusing but it still doesn't
change the meaning of the phrase. Here is the entire passage:
1 The Pharisees heard that Jesus was gaining and baptizing more disciples than John,
2 although in fact it was not Jesus who baptized, but his disciples.
3 When the Lord learned of this, he left Judea and went back once more to Galilee.
4 Now he had to go through Samaria.
5 So he came to a town in Samaria called Sychar, near the plot of ground Jacob had given
to his son Joseph.
6 Jacob's well was there, and Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the
well. It was about the sixth hour.
7 When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, "Will you give me a
8 (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.)
9 The Samaritan woman said to him, "You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can
you ask me for a drink?" (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.  )
10 Jesus answered her, "If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a
drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water."
11 "Sir," the woman said, "you have nothing to draw with and the well is
deep. Where can you get this living water?
12 Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself,
as did also his sons and his flocks and herds?"
13 Jesus answered, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again,
14 but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him
will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life."
15 The woman said to him, "Sir, give me this water so that I won't get thirsty and
have to keep coming here to draw water."
16 He told her, "Go, call your husband and come back."
17 "I have no husband," she replied. Jesus said to her, "You are right when
you say you have no husband.
18 The fact is, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband.
What you have just said is quite true."
19 "Sir," the woman said, "I can see that you are a prophet.
20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must
worship is in Jerusalem."
21 Jesus declared, "Believe me, woman, a time is coming when you will worship the
Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.
22 You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation
is from the Jews.
23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father
in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.
24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth."
25 The woman said, "I know that Messiah" (called Christ) "is coming. When
he comes, he will explain everything to us."
26 Then Jesus declared, "I who speak to you am he."
Jesus, a Galileean from Nazareth in Galilee, was crucified because he was preaching
against, not just the "Jews" [read: Judaeans], but the Pharisees and Saduccees
*from* Judaea whose "traditions" became the written Talmud several centuries
later, and who Jesus said were not even of His God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob:
"You belong to your father, the devil, and you
want to carry out your
father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the
truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native
language, for he is a liar and the father of lies", John 8:44
The Jews answered him, "Aren't we right in saying that you are a Samaritan and
demon-possessed?", John 8:48
At best, today's Talmudites are no more closely
related to Judaea than the descendants of Ephraim and Manasseh whom Roderick C. Meredith
claims are now in Britain and the US. More than 90% of "jews" who claim to
be Ashkenazi "jews" certainly aren't Semites (descendants of Shem), Hebrews
(descendants of Eber), Israelites (descendants of Jacob), of the Twelve Tribes of Israel,
nor were they the people Jesus included when He referred to "the Lost Sheep of
Israel", but their pedigree is unknown.
Conversely, Jesus was a Semite (a descendant of
Shem), a Hebrew (a descendant of Eber), an Israelite (a descendant of Jacob), but not a
"jew" (a descendant of Ashkenaz and Japeth), nor a Judaean (a resident of
ERRONEOUS BIBLICAL REFERENCES
Strong's Concordance defines "Samaritan"
as "inhabitant of Shomeron", which ignores that non-Israelite inhabitants were
referred to in Scripture as "goy":
Should we be surprised that
Brown-Driver-Briggs' makes the same error?:
Patrial from H8111; a Shomeronite (collectively) or inhabitant of Shomeron: -
Samaritans = "of Samaria"
1) inhabitants of Samaria
Part of Speech: noun proper masculine

Webster's 1828 Dictionary doesn't make the
same mistake, but it does fail to note that the Cuthites who repeopled Samaria were known
as "goy" and not Samaritans:
1. Pertaining to Samaria, the principal city of the ten tribes of Israel, belonging to
the tribe of Ephraim, and after the captivity of those tribes, repeopled by Cuthites from
Assyria or Chaldea.
2. Denoting the ancient characters and alphabet used by the Hebrews.
1. An inhabitant of Samaria, or one that belonged to the sect which derived their
appellation from that city. The Jews had no dealings with the Samaritans.
2. The language of Samaria, a dialect of the Chaldean.

There is also the matter of Jacob (The first Israelite) and Esua,
brother (and first Edomite). The Israelites and Edomites lived side by
side for centuries and Tyndale Bible Dictionary tells us how the Edomites
infiltrated and dominated the Israelites in time (so that the
Herod-Edomite clan even ruled over them). The Edomites converted to
Judaism as Tyndale tells us though some may have questions about whether
this was the Judaism of the Israelites. Can anyone today prove
that those claiming Israel as the land of their ancestors are more the
biological descendents of Jacob than of Esau? NO THEY CAN'T! Geneology has
been blurred so much by time that it becomes a guessing game. That
guessing game causes us to focus on SPIRITUAL identity which is
here-and-now rather than BIOLOGICAL identity.

Jesus Christ said, "Salvation is of the Jews" and "I
came only to find the
lost sheep of Israel". The words "Jews" and "Israelites" are used
well interchangeably. The people who call themselves "THE Jews" today,
however, are as you say, Talmudists. The full-length Steinsaltz edition
Talmud in the Vancouver Public Library says this is the foundation of all
Jewish law and practice. However, a number of passages refer to Jesus as
the bastard son of a loose woman, Mary, by a union with a Roman
soldier. Some of these passages are quoted in the Josh McDowell/Campus
Crusade for Christ classic (and 6 m. copy best-seller) "Evidence That
Demands A Verdict". The bottom line is that to this Anti-Christ cabal,
"Jesus is in hell being boiled in hot excrement" (Talmud Tractate Gittin
Given that Christians are those lost sheep of Israel found by Jesus,
Meredith has a point about "Identity" re Ephraim and Manasseh which may
have some validity. "I came only to find the lost sheep of Israel". So
today's Christians would be THE ISRAELITES or "lost sheep of Israel",
IRRESPECTIVE OF RACE although tribal identity as he attempts is very
For certain, to call "THE Jews" the 'found' sheep of Israel is to call
Jesus Christ a liar! Paul was one of those found sheep of Israel and he
identified himself as "The Jew of Tarsus" and "an Israelite of the Tribe
of Benjamin" (Benjamin being part of the former Kingdom of Judah). Thus
when Jesus said He came to find lost Israel that included lost
Judah. Jesus Christ was/is THE LION OF JUDAH by both earthly geneology (as
given in Matthew) and spiritual identity. FOLLOWERS OF JESUS CHRIST ARE
LOST ISRAEL OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH WHO HAVE BEEN 'FOUND'.
The Talmudists could also be lost sheep sought by Jesus in the sense
that The Great Commission applies to all peoples. So all races and creeds
are potentially 'found' sheep of Israel. In that sense Meredith could be
proven correct in due course.
