The jews, their history, culture, and religion

“When, years before, John Hyrcanus had forced Judaism on the Idumeans he evidently conjectured that the new, though unwilling, converts could learn to identify their own destiny with that of his people. The gruesome accuracy of his Realpolitik was now vindicated, albeit not as John would have wished.
“Antipater was of Idumean descent. During the reign of Alexander Janneus has father had served as governor of idumea. The son, however, had larger ambitions. He perceived that the tulmult within Judea could serve his own purposes if he but acted adroitly. The first step was to win the good faith of the defeated, equivocating Hyrcanus; from then on Antipater ceaselessly urged him to contest the throne that Aristobulus had usurped. Was not Hyrcanus the elder brother? Was not the crown in all justice his? Was it manly to resign so placidly? And the prodding was effective, especially since Antipater guaranteed the assistance of a neighboring Arab king.”
What’s missing from this brief excerpt is what’s meant by “Realpolitik”: it was the conversion of the Edomites to jews and their becoming “an inseparable part of the Jewish people” as Judaica Encyclopedia describes it, or that “from then on they constituted a part of the Jewish people, Herod being one of their descendants”, as the Standard Jewish Encyclopedia says.
"Edom is in modern Jewry" The Jewish Encyclopedia, 1925 edition, Vol. 5, Page 41JEWS. A corrupted form, doubtless, of Judah, and applied to the people of the kingdom of Judah and Benjamin, 2 Kin. 16:6; 25:25; 2 Chr. 32:18.
Under the heading of "A brief History of the Terms for Jew" in the 1980 Jewish Almanac is the following: "STRICTLY SPEAKING IT IS INCORRECT TO CALL AN ANCIENT ISRAELITE A 'JEW' OR TO CALL A CONTEMPORARY JEW AN ISREALITE OR A HEBREW." (1980 Jewish Almanac, p. 3).
From: John Perna
JUST Site the BIBLE VERSE where Jesus condemned the Jewish people.
Do not write two sentences of your own for every sentence that Jesus spoke.
Do not try to turn what He said about a specific individual, or some small
After you fail to do this, I will post a few hundred verses that says that
You are correct for once, John. Jesus was a "rabbi". But you forget that this word was translated from the Hebrew word "rhabbi", which is the language of the descendants of Eber. The "jews" [read: descendants of Ashkenaz] of today and those descendants of Ashkenaz who lived in Judaea when Christ was born are NOT descendants of Eber, and thus are NOT Hebrews, and thus stole the word "rabbi" from Hebrews, Israelites, descendants of Shem, Shemites, but NOT jews/Talmudites/Pharisees/Sadducees.
Yes, Jesus "taught" in synagogues, and for what He "taught", "the jews" demanded, against Pontias Pilate's will, that Jesus Christ be crucified, not merely imprisoned nor hanged. As you may know, "the jews" managed to pull this off, much to their chagrin.
Yes, Jesus was a descendant of Abraham and David, but Ashkenazi "jews" were NOT then and are NOT now--because Abraham and David are descendants of Shem, but Ashkenazis are descendants of Ashkenaz who is a descendant of Japeth.
Jesus was "hailed" as the "King of the jews"? Wrong! Not even "the jews" wanted Pontias Pilate to put a plaque on the cross which said this:
When Pontias Pilate persisted, consider how much "the chief priests of the Jews" whiiiiiiined. They sounded then just like you sound now, John!
Is this what you mean by "hailed as the King of the Jews", John?
Pontias Pilate was Procurator of Judaea, and thus did not have jurisdiction over Galileans, which Jesus Christ was. Had Jesus been a Judaean [read: a "jew"] there would have been no need to send Jesus to King Herod the Great, because Pilate would have been able to deal with him directly.
In other words, Jesus was a Galilean, not a "jew" as modern day "jews" [read: Ashkenazis] like to claim.
Different translations of the Holy Bible contain different perspectives on what Jesus meant when he was talking to the Samaritan woman. When the Samaritan woman hinted that she thought he was a jew by saying: "Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you Jews say that in Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship", he corrected her by saying: "Believe me, woman, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem."
The synagogues were, of course, in Jerasulem, so when Jesus said that you won't be needing to go to the synagogues any longer to worship God, he meant that she would no longer have to worry about being ruled by "the jews". Some translations [Darby, NKJV, KJV] state "for salvation is of the Jews", some [NIV, NIV-IBS, NASB, RSV] state "for salvation is from the Jews", one [YLT] states: "because the salvation is of the Jews", and one [WE] even states: "The Saviour will come of the Jews".
The WE version implies that Jesus "The Saviour" was a jew, which is a ludicrous and incomprehensible translation. All the other translations show that the word "salvation" was a promise to the Samaritan woman that she would be freed from "the jews". If Jesus had been a jew, rather than saying "the jews" He would have said "us jews", or "we jews". By no means were the jews "Saviours". Matthew 16:12: "Then they understood that he [Jesus] was not telling them to guard against the yeast used in bread, but against the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees [read: jews].
21 Jesus says to her, Woman, believe me, [the] hour is coming when ye shall neither in this mountain nor in Jerusalem worship the Father.
22 Ye worship ye know not what; we worship what we know, for salvation is of the Jews.
23 But [the] hour is coming and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth; for also the Father seeks such as his worshippers.
24 God [is] a spirit; and they who worship him must worship [him] in spirit and truth.
25 The woman says to him, I know that Messias is coming, who is called Christ; when *he* comes he will tell us all things.
26 Jesus says to her, I who speak to thee am [he].
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."
21Jesus declared, "Believe me, woman, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. 22You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23Yet 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. 24God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth."
21Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father. 22You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. 23But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. 24God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth."
25The woman said to Him, "I know that Messiah is coming" (who is called Christ). "When He comes, He will tell us all things."
26Jesus said to her, "I who speak to you am He."
21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
25 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things.
26 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.
26 Jesus said to her, ""<*34> I who speak to you am He.''
21 Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father.
22 You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews.
23 But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for such the Father seeks to worship him.
24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth."
25 The woman said to him, "I know that Messiah is coming (he who is called Christ); when he comes, he will show us all things."
26 Jesus said to her, "I who speak to you am he."
20 Jesus said, `Woman, believe what I say. The time is coming when you will not come to this mountain or to Jerusalem to worship my Father.
21 You worship one whom you do not know. But we know whom we worship. The Saviour will come of the Jews.
22 But the time is coming, yes, the time is here already, when those who worship God will worship him in spirit and in a true way. My Father is looking for that kind of people to worship him.
23 God is Spirit. Those who worship him must do so in spirit and in a true way.'
24 The woman said to Jesus, `I know that Messiah is coming. His name is Christ. When he comes he will tell us everything.'
25 Jesus said to her, `I who am talking to you am he.'
21 Jesus saith to her, `Woman, believe me, that there doth come an hour, when neither in this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, shall ye worship the Father;
22 ye worship what ye have not known; we worship what we have known, because the salvation is of the Jews;
23 but, there cometh an hour, and it now is, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father also doth seek such to worship him;
24 God [is] a Spirit, and those worshipping Him, in spirit and truth it doth behove to worship.'
25 The woman saith to him, `I have known that Messiah doth come, who is called Christ, when that one may come, he will tell us all things;'
26 Jesus saith to her, `I am [he], who am speaking to thee.'
