Blaming the Romans At Easter

Happy Easter! He is risen!

Sometimes it’s human nature to blame others for misfortunes. And this characteristic seems to be quite old. For example, I just finished reading The Decline and Fall Of the Roman Empire by Edward Gibbon. Writes Gibbon: “On the 10th of August, A.D. 70 , the temple of Jerusalem was destroyed by the hands of the Jews themselves, rather than by those of the Romans.” So, that’s one example of blaming others.

Then I came across this interesting article by historian Michael Hoffman, Scapegoating the Romans and Pontius Pilot for Killing Jesus.

Quote:

Rabbi Maimonides stated that Jesus was killed “by the court,” a reference to the rabbinic court: “Yeshu the Christian, who imagined himself the messiah and was killed by the court…” (Rabbi Moses Maimonides, Mishneh Torah: Laws of the King 11:4). 

Maimonides is echoing the halacha (rabbinic law) concerning the execution of Jesus as detailed in the Babylonian Talmud in Sanhderin 43A.

Nowhere does Moses Maimonides, the supreme halachic authority for western Judaics, blame the Romans, as do Popes Benedict XVI and Francis, as well as American conservatives and liberals.

There are literally thousands of “conservative” leaders like the popes of Rome, O’Reilly, Napolitano, Pence, Pompeo, and television and radio “evangelicals” who minimize the role of Orthodox Pharisaic Judaism in the killing of the Son of God, putting the onus on the Romans and Pilate, so as to curry favor with those who exert an inordinate influence on the corporate media.”

End of quote.

Mr. Hoffman’s essay is a very good read to counter the misinformation promoted by Christian Zionism.


Jews Demand Obedience, Apologies From Church of England

December 9, 2019

The following is a long review of a new book,“God’s Unfailing Word,” (2019) published by the Church of England, and I like Dr. Andrew Joyce’s review of it.

If it can be said that Europeans are today largely blind to Jewish aggressions, then Christians are among those fumbling around in deepest darkness. Historian Jonas Alexis once remarked that, contrary to older Christian anger at depictions of Jesus and Christianity in the Talmud, no such reactions are evident in relation to modern the Jewish comedy in which “Jesus, Christians and the cross are routinely mocked, even obscenely treated.”[1]

Jewish aggression against Christianity is, of course, nothing new. In the fifth century, edicts had to be pronounced banning Jews from burning and desecrating crosses, and Socrates Scholasticus reported in Historia Ecclesiastica that Jews had taken a Christian boy during Purim and crucified him.[2] In his Princeton-published Reckless Rites: Purim and the Legacy of Jewish Violence (2006), Elliott Horowitz pointed out multiple cases of Jews urinating on, and otherwise exposing their genitals to, crosses from 12th-century Germany and 13th-century England.[3] Even today, Daniel Rossing, a former advisor on Christian affairs to Israel’s religious Affairs Ministry, has commented on anti-Christian violence in Israel, which peaks during Purim. “I know Christians who lock themselves indoors during the entire Purim holiday,” he says. And yet, while Christians are spat upon and assaulted in Israel, and mocked and obscenely treated in the [Christian] Diaspora, the majority of Christians remain among the most guilt-ridden and philosemitic of Europeans, applauding Zionist wars that kill their sons, and lauding a people that has done more than any other to overturn traditional Christian moral values. It is one of the most glaring contradictions in this age of contradictions.

Rome’s Arch of Titus

November 22, 2017

Original source: TomatoBubble

https://i0.wp.com/cache.graphicslib.viator.com/graphicslib/media/d2/titus-arch-photo_1133522-770tall.jpgThis is a very enlightening piece by M. King at Tomato Bubble. Let me give a few lines and you can read the rest here, along with a great pictorial view of Jesus and the Zealots and why the Arch was built.

Sayings things like: “The love of money is the root of all evil” and “Turn the other cheek” and “blessed are the peacemakers” and “render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and to God the thing’s that are God’s” were not exactly what the psycho Zionist Zealots and money-grubbing loan sharks wanted to hear. Publicly calling them out as the sons of Satan probably didn’t win Jesus any ‘brownie points’ either! As we all know by now, if there is one thing that Jewish Supremacist Zealots hate more than an “anti-Semite”, it’s a “self-hating Jew.” Jesus of Nazareth had to go. Read more.


Israel Is Walling Off Bethlehem, The Birth Place of Jesus

January 4, 2017

Millions of American Christians are unaware of the plight of the city of Bethlehem and its Palestinian inhabitants in the West Bank of Palestine. The Israeli built separation wall snakes its way around Bethlehem, even cutting off Palestinians from their own land and nearby Jerusalem. This story is courageously told by Palestinian filmmaker, Leila Sansour in her Open, Bethlehem documentary that is part of a campaign to educate her fellow Christians and the world about the stranglehold by Israel that is slowly causing Palestinian Christians to leave the Holy Land because of the hardships imposed by the military occupation.

To increase the awareness of what is happening to Bethlehem, a Bethlehem Passport is being issued by the OPEN, BETHLEHEM campaign in partnership with the Governorate of Bethlehem.  So far, the passport has been granted to more than 500 people around the world, including church leaders and heads of states, such as Archbishop Rowan Williams, Pope Benedict XVI, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and President Jimmy Carter. The passport states: “In that the bearer of this passport is a citizen of Bethlehem; that they recognize this ancient city provides a light to the world, and to all people who uphold the values of a just and open society; that they will remain a true friend to Bethlehem through its imprisonment, and that they will strive to keep the ideals of Bethlehem alive as long as the wall stands; we ask you to respect the bearer of the passport and to let them pass freely.” Showings of Open, Bethlehem are starting in the United States after a successful introduction in the UK. Check the website for a showing near you or to organize one in your town. Also, the complete documentary can be seen on line (Click Here). For more information on Liela Sansour’s campaign to bring down the wall around Bethlehem check out the Huffington Post UK article.

This is the 4 minute trailer for Open, Bethlehem:

Church of England’s hidden Zionist agenda

by Stuart Littlewood

What happened to Stephen Sizer was foul play and intolerable.

Sizer was treated with maximum disrespect, publicly hauled over the coals, had his Facebook confiscated and was forced to make a groveling apology to the usual pack of snarling Zios. His crime? He dared to start a discussion on social media linking to an article entitled ’9/11 Israel did it’ (presumably this site https://wikispooks.com/wiki/9-11/Israel_did_it ). He asked whether Jews might have been responsible, seeing as so many questions remain unanswered and so few people believe the official story.

Not to mention the ‘cui bono?’ test.

Sizer’s boss, the Bishop of Guildford, broadcast across the media that Stephen had “demonstrated appallingly poor judgement” and some of the material disseminated was “clearly anti-Semitic”. http://www.cofeguildford.org.uk/whats-on/news/detail/2015/02/09/statement-on-the-revd-stephen-sizer-by-the-bishop-of-guildford He also said the suggestion that Israel may have been complicit in the events of 9/11 was “ridiculous” and Sizer’s “undisciplined commitment to an anti-Zionist agenda” had become a liability.

Ridiculous? Until the truth is established who is to say that Mossad or the Neo-cons had nothing to do with it?

Sizer had to promise his bishop he’ll “refrain entirely from writing or speaking on any theme that relates, either directly or indirectly, to the current situation in the Middle East or to its historical backdrop.”

In other words he’s gagged, prevented from bearing witness to the evil that stalks the Holy Land and unable to discuss the causes of the appalling decades-long injustice there.

What made the Church of England turn on one of its brighter priests like that? Read more


Pastor Wiggins Reveals Christian Zionist Theme At Israel Summit

February 3, 2015

Jonathan Wiggins, Senior Pastor at Resurrection Fellowship, clearly identifies himself as a Christian Zionist in an interview with the Longmont Reporter-Herald. As such, he cannot possibly treat the Palestinian people as anything but vassals and slaves to the state of Israel, to be murdered or imprisoned at will. This is the exact reason We Hold These Truths, Coloradans for Justice in Palestine and Project Strait Gate are protesting this conference. [Read more…]

The Man From Galilee

The Man from Galilee (chapter 10)

When Jesus was born the vibrant expectation that a marvellous being was about to appear was general among the Judeans. They longed for such proof that Jehovah intended to keep the Covenant with his chosen people, and the scribes, reacting to the pressure of this popular longing, gradually had introduced into the scriptures the idea of the anointed one, the Messiah, who would come to fulfill his bargain.

The Targams, the rabbinical commentaries on the Law, said: “How beautiful he is, the Messiah king who shall arise from the house of Judah. He will gird up his loins and advance to do battle with his enemies and many kings shall be slain.”

This passage shows what the Judeans had been led to expect. They awaited a militant, avenging Messiah (in the tradition of “all the firstborn of Egypt” and the destruction of Babylon) who would break Judah’s enemies “with a rod of iron” and “dash them in pieces like a potter’s vase”; who would bring them empire of this world and the literal fulfilment of the tribal Law; for this was what generations of Pharisees and Levites had foretold.

The idea of a lowly Messiah who would say “love your enemies” and be “despised and rejected of men, a man of sorrows” was not present in the public mind at all and would have been “despised and rejected,” had any called attention to these words of Isaiah (which only gained significance after Jesus had lived and died).

Yet the being who appeared, though he was lowly and taught love, apparently claimed to be this Messiah and was by many so acclaimed!

In few words he swept aside the entire mass of racial politics, which the ruling sect had heaped on the earlier, moral law, and like an excavator revealed again what had been buried. The Pharisees at once recognized a most dangerous “prophet and dreamer of dreams.”

The fact that he found so large a following among the Judeans shows that, even if the mass of the people wanted a militant, nationalist Messiah who would liberate them from the Romans, many among them must subconsciously have realised that their true captivity was of the spirit and of the Pharisees, more than of the Romans. Nevertheless, the mass responded mechanically to the Pharisaic politicians’ charge that the man was a blasphemer and bogus Messiah.

By this response they bequeathed to all future generations of Jews a tormenting doubt, no less insistent because it must not be uttered (for the name Jesus may not even be mentioned in a pious Jewish home): Did the Messiah appear, only to be rejected by the Jews, and if so, what is their future, under The Law?

What manner of man was this? Another paradox in the story of Zion is that in our generation Christian divines and theologians often insist that “Jesus was a Jew,” whereas the Judaist elders refuse to allow this (those Zionist rabbis who occasionally tell political or “interfaith” audiences that Jesus was a Jew are not

60

true exceptions to this rule; they would not make the statement among Jews and seek to produce an effect among their non-Jewish listeners, for political reasons).[1]

This public assertion, “Jesus was a Jew,” is always used in our century for political purposes. It is often employed to quell objections to the Zionist influence in international politics or to the Zionist invasion of Palestine, the suggestion being that, as Jesus was a Jew, none ought to object to anything purporting to be done in the name of Jews. The irrelevance is obvious, but mobs are moved by such phrases, and the paradoxical result, once again, is that a statement, most offensive to literal Jews, is most frequently made by non-Jewish politicians and ecclesiastics who seek Jewish favour.

The English abbreviation, “Jew,” is recent and does not correspond to anything denoted by the Aramaic, Greek or Roman terms for “Judahite” or “Judean,” which were in use during the lifetime of Jesus. In fact, the English noun “Jew” cannot be defined (so that dictionaries, which are scrupulously careful about all other words, are reduced to such obvious absurdities as “A person of Hebrew race”); and the Zionist state has no legal definition of the term (which is natural, because the Torah, which is the Law, exacts pure Judahite descent, and a person of this lineage is hardly to be found in the entire world).

The Least of my Brothers and Sisters….

August 4, 2013

Pastor Jeremiah Steepek (pictured above) transformed himself into a homeless person and went to the 10,000 member church that he was to be introduced as the head pastor at that morning.

He walked around his soon to be church for 30 minutes while it was filling with people for service. Only 3 people out of the 7-10,000 people said hello to him.

He asked people for change to buy food. NO ONE in the church gave him change.

He went into the sanctuary to sit down in the front of the church and was asked by the ushers if he would please sit in the back.

He greeted people only to be greeted back with stares and dirty looks, with people looking down on him and judging him.

As he sat in the back of the church, he listened to the church announcements and such. When all that was done, the elders went up and were excited to introduce the new pastor of the church to the congregation.

“We would like to introduce to you Pastor Jeremiah Steepek.” The congregation looked around clapping with joy and anticipation. The homeless man sitting in the back stood up and started walking down the aisle. The clapping stopped with ALL eyes on him. He walked up to the altar and took the microphone from the elders (who were in on this) and paused for a moment, then he recited:

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

After he recited this, he looked towards the congregation and told them all what he had experienced that morning. Many began to cry and many heads were bowed in shame. He then said, “Today I see a gathering of people… not a church of Jesus Christ. The world has enough people, but not enough disciples. When will YOU decide to become disciples?

He then dismissed service until next week.

Being a Christian is more than something you claim. It’s something you live by and share with others.
