Christian and Jewish Myths dispelled!

Updated: Jul 7

OK, it's about time to dispel some common myths created by the so called Bible scholars! People who have university degrees in theology or who have studied in some seminary of some kind or another! This kind loves to have the pre-eminence among men and love to put titles in front of their names or behind. (Matthew 23:1-7 is reminiscent of them) And for what? So men can say, wow, you are so well educated, or, you must know so much! It causes nothing but pride which as the Bible puts it, (Proverbs 16:18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.) which by the way always gets quoted the wrong way by people claiming to know the Bible as they say it comes before a fall. They say this largely because subconsciously they are aware that they're filled with pride and they wish to distance themselves from their own sin. But I am not here to talk about these sorts of people, I am here to dispel their man made myths that they have conjured up over the last 5 or so centuries ever since the reformation. These myths have formed society as we know it to a large degree, more so than most people are aware of. Let's just start of with one of the greatest myths these so called scholars have come out with the language which was spoken in the days of Yeshua(Jesus). They claim the language which was commonly spoken in the land of Judea was Aramaic. What do they base this on? Having actually read the Bible it still baffles me how they could come to this conclusion as the opposite of this is written in the Bible. Is it perhaps the Samaritan woman Yeshua spoke to in John 4 as Samaritans spoke Aramaic at that time? Maybe this is how they assumed what they did, who knows? The most obvious scripture points out the opposite to be true of the people of Judea at that time and this is that scripture, (Mar 15:34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Mar 15:35 And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he calleth Elias.) Now Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani in Hebrew is said Eli, Eli lama azavtani. Yet He spoke it in Aramaic so that today people can point out the fact that scholars are idiots who do not know God. Did I shock you? Do you even know what the word idiot means? Here, let me show you so you can use the word effectively in the future when dealing with so called educated scholars![ ἰδιώτης(idiōtēs)G2399, 4) in the NT, an unlearned, illiterate, man as opposed to the learned and educated: one who is unskilled in any art.] In the early days it meant something completely different but since New Testament times this is what this has meant and has not changed since! When you read Romans chapter 1 you will see the kind of people we are dealing with here, this verse definitely comes to mind instantly, (Romans 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, ). Now to return to the myth at hand, you can clearly read in Mark 15:35 that the people standing at the foot of the cross did not understand what Yeshua was saying as they thought He was calling on Eliyahu(Elijah). This clearly indicates one fact, they did NOT speak Aramaic, yet they were Yeshua's Jewish disciples! Did they speak another language then, is the obvious question and the answer is yes, they spoke Hebrew as Hebrew was still spoken until the final expulsion of the Jews in 70 AD. The earliest copy of the gospel of Mattityahu(Matthew) was written in Hebrew as the Lord's command was, to the Jew first and then the gentile! The Lord always starts with His own house first!(Zec 12:7  The LORD also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify themselves against Judah. ) That is God's order, put your own house in order first, then go to others!(1Timothy 5:8 But if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he has denied the faith, and is worse than an unbeliever.) That is one myth dispelled, what else is there? That Yeshua was 30 or 33 years old when He was on the cross is another common one based on what?? Who knows?! He was born on the first of Nisan in 4 BC(as stupid as that sounds). This day according to the Gregorian calendar was the 11th of March 4 BC and He died on the 13th of Nisan 33 in AD making Him 36 years old when He died as we do not count the zero year. Just in case you're wondering, yes the 13th of Nisan even though Pesach(Passover) begins on the 14th of Nisan. According to God's Biblical calendar the 14th begins at 6PM that same Friday the 13th, the day the Pharisees turned into black Friday because they being sons of the devil were defeated that day! For the believer Friday the 13th is the day we were saved and the enemy had no more hold on us! And yes it was a Friday only on the Hebrew calendar or more accurately day 6 in the Hebrew calendar as day seven is the Shabbat. Saturday is not the same as the Shabbat nor is Friday the same as day 6 of the Hebrew calendar. The Biblical day begins at 6PM one day and ends 6PM the following day. So that is another myth dispelled, Yeshua was 36 years old at the time He died for us on the cross. God does everything with perfection! He created this world for man and He came as a man to redeem man and so He used man's number to create all things in man's domain and his(man's) number is six(see Rev 13:18) whereas God's number is seven. A circle is 360 degrees a triangle is 360 degrees etc etc. Everything in this world that God has created for man comes in multiples of six. So even when Yeshua came as a man He came fully as man yet He was fully God too! Anyway I digress yet again. Myth number three, when was Yeshua born? I just answered that before but I mention it again because the common mistake is December the 25th. This is a day of significance and no, it is not based in idolatry as in the winter solstice or whatever, that is on the 21st anyway! The 25th of December 2 BC is the very day the Magi came to Bethlehem to worship Yeshua and bring Him the gifts of gold, myrrh and frankincense which would sustain Yeshua and the family He was born into for the 3 and a half years they would remain in Egypt in hiding from Herod the great! The Magi were astronomers who had resided in Northern Arabia since the Greeks came and took over Babylon from the Medes and Persians. These Magi were taught astronomy by Daniel the prophet who in turn had been taught the stars by the messenger of God named Gabriel. (Dan 9:22) This also dispels the other common catholic myth of the three wise men! There were NOT three wise men, there were three gifts! Yet there were enough Magi to upset Herod which made him enquire of them regarding the King which was to come and they answering him told him that the child they sought the star of His birth was seen by them from the East in Northern Arabia(in the western sky) some 20 months earlier and that is why Herod ordered all male children up to the age of 2 years old be killed in Bethlehem. Many obvious things are missed in God's Word unless you have the Holy Spirit teaching you and pointing these things out to you, the key however is that you seek God and that you are taught by His Holy Spirit alone so that you do not get man's false teaching such as they teach in seminaries and universities and the like! What other common myths are there? Many but I could go on for ever here but my point is this, you need to seek out God yourselves and be taught of Him yourselves so as to not be deceived by those who lord it over you in churches and the like which are also not of God. Yes that is right I said it, churches are not of God! Yeshua never founded a church! He founded the Ekklesia, the called out ones, they are people and not buildings and He built them upon a Sela(Hebrew for stone or a piece of rock) and He is the Rock, we are the stones, pieces of that Rock! Sela was Peter's real name given him by Yeshua by the way! A Greek derivative was Silas. The Greek Jews loved to translate the Hebrew words literally into Greek however, which is what started so many confusions and caused a separation which God had intended between physical and spiritual Israel! So let there only be One Lord over you and that is Yeshua! All others are impostors! These false teachers and preachers will have their day in court and will stand before God to account for their lies, do not envy them my brothers and sisters! They may have positions of power and influence in their man made churches but they have zero before God! What does the Word say they have? (Col 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.) that's right vain deceit, philosophy and traditions of men none of which are of the Truth of Yeshua and Yeshua is the Truth(John 14:6 )! Just a couple of quick common myths needing to be dispelled: Swearing on the Bible in court such as is done in the US and in some other places is in breach of God's Word as He said, (Mat 5:33 Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths: 5:34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne: 5:35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. 5:36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black. 5:37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.) And so many today in churches forbid things which God has intended for us for good! So get that very clear, God did not create the church nor any church and He definitely did not place people over us to lord it over us! He gave certain men in the Ekklesia the task to oversee the ministry of the great commission which He gave to us ALL and when I say this I say overseers who have been in God's presence more than others and have drawn much closer to Him as a result. Overseers are to be humble men not putting themselves in a position of power lording it over others but guiding them(the younger and the new in the faith) into a right relationship with Yeshua. The distorted picture you see in churches around the world regardless of what denomination, is all wrong and contrary to God's commands and His Word. If you are in one, get out and start serving God as He had intended for all to serve Him in all manner of different ways just not in that false picture given to people in churches! It is fine to assemble as believers to jointly worship God, to strengthen each other in the faith by witnessing to each other what God has done in your life but do not compromise with the world and do not follow their man made organisations that demand tithes and the like! God did not command you to pay the tithe except to those who are under the law and feeding the Levite priesthood with the proceeds of the tithe! When you decided to follow Yeshua no matter what the cost realise that the cost is ALL of you not just ten percent! He wants your hundred percent to do with as He commands you, not as people command you! God is not about money, that false god is one they worship in churches, the same false god that promises them prosperity which immediately gets converted to money in their followers minds! No the True God of the Bible wishes to prosper you by making you more like Him and not more like mammon! Leave the world people and do not conform to its lusts and desires! Follow Truth and desire what is right, follow Yeshua and His Way, His doctrine and be led by His Holy Spirit so that you may be counted among the sons of God! (Rom 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.)
