Part 2: The Talmud
Gen. James Green
T HE LITERARY PRODUCTIONS of two schools largely embodied in the two Talmuds bearing the title of their native countries:
1) The Palestinian Talmud, called the Talmud of Jerusalem, the Talmud of (the children of) the Land of Israel, the Talmud (or the Gemara) of (the people of) the West; and
2) The Babylonian Talmud was known by the title of the Talmud of the people of the East.
It would take pages to explain all this, so I’ll keep it to a bare minimum.
Neither the Jewish, nor the Babylonian Talmud extend over all the 60 (or 63) tractates of the Mishna. The Jewish Talmud has Gemara to the first four orders of the Mishna and to three chapters in the tractate Nidda in the sixth order; but in the second order there is missing the Gemara to the last four chapters of the tractate Shabbath, to the third chapter of the tractate Makkoth, and in the fourth order to the tractate ‘Aboth and ‘Eduyyoth, according to Prof. S. Schechter, M.A., Litt. D., former President of the Faculty of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, NY.
The Babylonian Talmud has Gemara as follows: in the first order to tractate Berakhoth only; in the 2nd order, tractate Shekalim is omitted; in the 4th order, tractates ‘Aboth and ‘Eduyyoth are omitted; in the 5th order, tractates Middoth and Kinnim are omitted; in the 6th order, Gemara to tractate Nidda alone (ibid).
“See that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ” (Col. 2:8).
In Paul’s day there were humanistic, sexual, political, religious, etc., philosophies, Talmudism was one of them. And there were those Judaizers who were pushing the law of Moses into the new Ekklesias. But Paul, again, refuted Old Testament circumcision as an absolute for salvation. He, in verse 9, tells the Colossians that CIRCUMCISION UNDER THE NEW TESTAMENT COVENANT IS SPIRITUAL, not physical. Christ cuts away our old unregenerate nature of sinfulness/rebellion against God, and imparts to us the spiritual or resurrection life of Jesus Christ the Lord (vv. 12, 13); it is a circumcision of the heart (see Deut. 10:16; 30:6; Jer. 4:4; 9:26; Rom. 2:29).
[Col. 2] Verse 14 reads: “…having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; He took it away, nailing it to the Cross.” It is unnecessary, as a Christian, to carry on with Judaism, as some are today. The whole Messianic Movement (I know some in it personally) teaches the combination of the two. But the Bible does not teach this. PAUL REFUTED THE OLD TESTAMENT CONTINUATION.
Don’t misunderstand me—I am a firm believer in the Old Testament MORAL laws and principles, but the Old Testament covenant as a WAY to salvation–through Judaism—has been nailed to the Cross (i.e. ABOLISHED FOREVER!!), and God established a better covenant thru Christ, whom the Jewish leaders had crucified!! THEREFORE, THE NEW TESTAMENT BELIEVERS ARE UNDER GRACE, NOT RACE (see 2 Cor. 3:6-9; Heb. 8:6-13; 10:16, 17, 29; 12:24).
Jesus: The New Testament Mediator
GALATIANS 3:21-29 tells us a lot. Verses 19-21 tell us that the New Testament covenant was/is permanent; the Old Testament law was temporary (except God’s universal moral laws) and provisional TILL the seed should come. The seed was Christ—the Mediator of the New Testament—as 1 Timothy 2:5 tells us.
Paul tells us in v. 22 that FAITH, not RACE is for those who believe. Faith played a major role under the Old Testament—the common factor in both Old/New Testament was: under Abraham/under Jesus Christ. BUT THE “FAITH” UNDER JESUS WAS WHAT WAS PROMISED TO REMAIN. Paul says that “the law” was our (Jewish) school master, i.e., teacher, to bring us (Jews) unto Christ, that we should be justified by (New Testament) faith (v. 24). He goes on to state, “But after that faith is come, we (Jews) are no longer under a schoolmaster (Moses).” Then Paul makes this statement, for both Jews and Gentile, “For ye are all the children of God by FAITH in Christ Jesus” (v. 26).
My point of all this is to show you that Judaism is void of salvation. Therefore, we should tell the Jews this; we should warn the non-Jew (who wants to convert) that salvation is in Jesus, not racial Judaism.
The BIG SIN!
WITHHOLDING THIS TRUTH from racial Jews (whatever that is) is a sin. This is what heretics like John Hagee are guilty of—teaching “another Gospel”—that Jews don’t need Christ because they have their Jewish christ…who is yet to come. BULL! JESUS WAS AND IS THEIR MESSIAH, THEIR CHRIST.
Paul wrote: “For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for EVERYONE who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek (Gentile)” (Rom. 1:16). Hagee teaches a “Dual Covenant” theory; one covenant for the Jews, another for the Gentiles. This is “Christian Zionism” at its best. Ethnic salvation is a delusion...a LIE! These “Israel First” folks have a BIG appetite for delusions, as evidenced by the countless tones about END TIME prophecy, and especially about the pre-trib rapture of the Church, and the salvation of the (racial) Jews (see our “Rapture” trilogy).
“Final Dawn Over Jerusalem” (1998) became a No. 1 best seller (nonfiction). There have been dozens of “best sellers”—all dealing with Israel. I have many of Hagee’s books; they are so outrageously unBiblical...yet they sell. The readers are treated to sensational predictions about the State of Israel. The fact is, the State of Israel is not the creation of God (I’ll have more on this as we go along in other publications).
NOW WE HAVE PREZ Trump praising the Jews and the State of Israel. Well, before the State of Israel came into being, there were the Rothschilds (Zionist Jews). They had their dirty hands (many times, unseen) on many nations of the world by political/financial manipulation and control–with M-O-N-E-Y being their LUST, their god.
These Zionists pushed for a New World Order in order to entrap mankind. Frighteningly, THIS PUSH IS STILL A PRESENT NIGHTMARE. Even Trump is a player (of sorts) in their satanic/nefarious plans to ADVANCE their insanity. These people are sick and deeply sinister. Lucifer is their master, money and power are their drive (Planet Rothschilds).
SHLOMO SAND, an Israeli historian living in Israel and currently teaching contemporary history at the Univ. of Tel Aviv, writes in his book, “The Invention of the Jewish People,” that NO PEOPLE could possibly remain racially PURE while scattered across Europe and the Middle East (and ultimately across the entire world!). Common sense tells us this is impossible, yet millions believe that those living in Israel are real “Jews.” Give us a break!! Of course this drives “Christian Zionists” and ultra-Zionists crazy. ARE THEY A RACE OR A RELIGION? DNA has disproved the “Pure Race” belief. At the most, they are Russians/Khazarians (and other). But the Israeli lobby here in the U.S. still push the “Jew” as God’s special “chosen people.” But there are people, and, many are “Jews” at that, that are causing a radical dismantling of this national myth. One writer for the Jewish Journal wrote about Sand’s book, “Almost too baseless to debunk!” The NY Times wrote, “Extravagantly denounced and praised.”
WHY THE OCCULT SYMBOL?—the hexagram (red was first used by the Rothschilds, and later, blue—as it is today), which has nothing to do with king David–as some think.
What we’re looking at is fake imposters (a.k.a. the Illuminati) who by-and-large deceive and control nations. THE HISTORY OF “JEWISH”-MONEYED INTERESTS OVER THE CENTURIES CAN’T BE DENIED.
Even with all this said, I cannot make a wholesome condemnation of Judaism or Jews in general.
On my mother’s side, they were Jewish, on my father’s side, Irish. My mom’s parents were German Jews. My mom converted to Christianity and taught us kids the same. My dad converted also. The only thing said to us growing up was that Hitler was MAD and the Jews suffered greatly. I was never taught to hate either, for both of my parents taught us Christian love and forgiveness. However, neither covered for sins/crimes committed by other races.
Sins Of Fathers
“THE TRUE CATHOLIC” (2016) wrote the following:
While full culpability for the machinations of some Jews, can’t be assigned to every Jew, there is no doubt that there is such a thing as COLLECTIVE GUILT. Not only individuals are punished for their sins, but nations, cities, etc. are, as well, even though there may be some very virtuous people living in these regions. The irony of the situation is that persecutions of the Jews often have occurred because a certain amount of the Jews are very criminal and the host government becomes fed up with the people as a whole and expels them or passes restrictive laws. The ordinary Jew may be unaware of what has really happened, so they are convinced by their leaders (at least nowadays) that everyone pathologically hates the Jews for no good reason. (This is how the rabbis maintain control of their “congregation.” This is the old unite-a-people-by-revealing-to-them-a-common-“ene-my” trick.)
P.S. So when “the Jews are God’s chosen People” [propaganda] is pushed by the Church, LET IT BE KNOWN THAT IT IS AN “OPPOSITION GOSPEL.”
