“Jesus Christ” — A False Prophet?

Now that I have your attention with an intentionally controversial title for this article …

After wrestling for many years with the issue of why it is so difficult for the Jewish people to accept Yeshua of Nazareth as the promised Jewish Messiah, I now understand that the reason is that they are being faithful to the Torah, which teaches that the distorted caricature that the Church presents as the “Gentile God Jesus Christ” is, in fact, a false prophet!

The Gentile Church, in direct and open disobedience to the Bible’s clear command to present the Gospel to the Jew first (Romans 1:16; Acts 3:24-26), has instead done virtually everything possible to estrange, exclude, and even persecute the physical relatives of the man they call “Savior.”

This is an extremely complex issue that is going to take a considerable while for me to be able to properly articulate. My hope and prayer is that when I am finished, those who read it will use the information to drastically improve their ability to effectively present an accurate picture of the Jewish Messiah to His physical family, the Jewish people.

Some issues that I hope to address include:

 • Gentile Christians, who have been adopted as sons by faith into the Family of God (Rom. 8:15; 8:23; 9:3-4; 11:12-22; Gal. 4:4,5; Eph. 1:3-7), have usurped the birthright of the natural-born sons and literally stolen their inheritance from them through widely-prevalent Replacement Theology.

 • Replacement Theology is the heretical teaching that God has set aside Israel because they rejected “Jesus” as the Messiah, and that the Gentile “Church” has therefore replaced Israel as God’s bride (Isaiah 54:5,6; Jeremiah 31:31-32; Isaiah 49:18 NAS; Isaiah 61:10 NAS; Isaiah 62:5 NAS; Jeremiah 2:32 NAS; Jeremiah 3:1 NAS; Ezekiel 16:27-37). I was taught this heresy in seminary, and I taught it myself for over 30 years.

 • Gentile Christians have systematically and aggressively persecuted the Jewish people in the name of “Jesus Christ” for the past 1,600 years, submitting them to unimaginable atrocities.

 • The Gentile Church has adopted as “truth” anti-Semitic vocabulary and attitudes that most Church members do not even recognize as anti-Semitic. Martin Luther, the founder of Protestant Christianity, was a violent anti-Semite whose writings can easily be directly linked to the Holocaust, and “Hitler saw himself as the German Messiah doing God’s work by destroying the Jew.” He openly claimed that he was only completing the work that Luther had started. To the eastern mind, anyone who is not a Jew, a Muslim Arab, or a member of one of the other major world religions is by default a “Christian.” Therefore (to the eastern mind) Adolph Hitler was a Christian doing the work of the Gentile God Jesus.

 • The Church has almost totally rejected the historic Jewishness of the Messiah and His Apostles, as well as their own totally-Jewish background (roots).

 • The “Jesus Christ” whom the Church insists that Jewish people must accept as the Messiah or “burn in hell forever” bears almost no resemblance at all the the historic Yeshua of Nazareth.

 • According to the so-called “Old Testament,” the “Jesus Christ” presented by the Gentile Church is a false prophet and not qualified to be the Jewish Messiah.


What follows are just some random thoughts that I hope to weave into an intelligent narrative.

From my formal theological training I had, I believe, developed an understanding of the Scriptures, particularly the “New Testament” Scriptures, that was significantly different from the way they would have most likely been understood by their original recipients.

This point was ever so starkly brought to my attention several years ago through a piece of Sunday school literature which came across my desk. It was written for grade school children and produced by a leading denominational publishing house. The part which caught my eye was a full-page drawing of Jesus. He was depicted as a boy and shown going up steps leading into a building. Underneath the drawing was this caption: ‘Jesus was a good Christian boy who went to church every Sunday.’ I scarcely could believe my eyes! Here were three glaring errors in one sentence: Jesus was a Christian, not a Jew; he attended church, not synagogue; and he went on Sunday, not the Sabbath. On seeing this I thought to myself, if this is what is being taught in certain church schools among the young, no wonder a problem persists today among many Christian adults. These Christians fail to grasp the Jewishness of Jesus and the Jewish background to the New Testament writings.  [Marvin R. Wilson in the Foreword to Jesus the Jewish Theologian by Brad H. Young. Peabody MA: Hendrickson Publishers, 1995, p. xvii. I have personally seen versions of this same illustration in the literature of several different denominations.] [17]

The following are but a few of the ideas that I have had to wrestle with, and which we will be discussing as you read on:

1. Yeshua, His original Talmidim,[18] and His Shliachim were all born as Jews, lived their entire lives as Jews, and died as Torah-observant Jews. What other life-style could any of them ever even considered?

2. The only “Scriptures” that any of them knew was the Tanakh [19], or Hebrew Bible—that which Gentile Christians refer to as the “Old Testament.” As a friend of mine recently pointed out, “The Apostle Paul never preached a single sermon from the New Testament.” The Apostolic Scriptures, or so-called “New Testament,” did not exist in its present form until they were all long dead and buried.

3. The only form of worship that any of them knew was that of the Temple and Synagogues.

4. Since Israel was the only people on earth to have received direct revelation from the one true God, the only place to learn about Him was in Israel’s Temple/Synagogue environment.

5. From the time of the Exodus out of Egypt through the end of the Second Temple Period, and even until today, non-Jews have always been welcome to participate in Jewish religious life, as long as certain acceptable forms of behavior are observed [20].

6. All the writers of the Bible, including both the Tanakh and the Apostolic Scriptures, were Jews. The Bible was recorded (not authored) by Jews, about Jews, to Jews, and for Jews. Dr. Luke, writer of the Gospel account that bears his name and the book of Acts, is often accused of being a Gentile. He was a Jew, either natural-born or a proselyte; otherwise he would have had no access to the Temple or the synagogues of his time.

7. Yeshua taught that the entire Tanakh speaks of Him (Luke 24:25-27, 44-47; cp. John 1:45). Thus the Apostolic Scriptures, those letters which His Shliachim wrote about His life and ministry and to explain His teachings that they were commissioned to pass on—and which we have received as the Apostolic Scriptures—can best be considered as God-inspired midrashim (commentaries) on the Tanakh, which enable Believers to properly understand both the Tanakh and Yeshua’s teaching as interpreted by Ruach HaKodesh through the Shliachim.

8. Since Hebrew was the common language of Eretz Yisra'el [21] in the late Second Temple Period [22], and “Koine Greek” was assumed to be the lingua franca of all Goyim in the then-known world, and since the Gospel was to be delivered “to the Jew first, and also to the Greek,” the case has been made by some very reputable scholars that the Apostolic letters were very probably originally written in Hebrew (the native tongue of all the writers except perhaps Dr. Luke) for transmission to the Jewish Messianic Believers, both in Eretz Yisra'el and in the Diaspora, and were immediately translated into Greek for transmission to the Non-Jewish Messianic Believers. At the very least, the early Church fathers held that the original source document for the Synoptic Gospels was written in Hebrew by Mattityahu [23]. See (Appendix B and C.)

With these ideas in mind, let us now look at the history of the Body of Messiah from its earliest beginnings and see if we can discover for ourselves just what Yeshua and the Shliachim may have actually expected the Messianic Community to look like. [MORE]


nobody who knew the Messiah in the flesh ever called Him “Jesus.” [CLICK HERE]

… it is grammatically impossible to say the words “Jesus” or “Jehovah” in Hebrew, the language of the first-century “church.” [CLICK HERE]

… Yeshua (Jesus) and His Talmidim (Disciples) were all Torah-observant Jews who never became “Christians.”

… Rabbi Sha’ul (the Apostle Paul) returned to Jerusalem from one of his missionary journeys to offer sacrifices in the Temple. [CLICK HERE]

… until well after the end of the first century, almost all the followers of Messiah were Jewish, and “The Way” (as Messianic Judaism was then called) continued to be predominately Jewish until well into the fourth century CE/AD.

… a Jewish Believer in Messiah doesn’t become a Christian and stop being a Jew.

… when Ruach HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit) came at Pentecost, the Jews upon whom He “fell” did not become “Christians.”

… the Bible does not apply the word “Christian” to believing Jews, only to believing Gentiles, and even then it is a only translation of the term “Messianic” into Greek, and may even have been used as a derogatory term.

… the “church,” as we know it, did not come into existence until the fourth century.

… the word “church” in the so-called “New Testament” is a false translation of the same word used in the so-called “Old Testament” for the Holy Convocations of Israel. [CLICK HERE]


The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob declares clearly that He is one, and ...

Sh'ma, Yisra'el! ADONAI Eloheinu, ADONAI echad [Hear, Isra'el! ADONAI our God, ADONAI is one]; and you are to love ADONAI your God with all your heart, all your being and all your resources. (Deut 6:4-5)

Yeshua answered, “The most important [mitzvah, commandment] is,  ‘Sh'ma Yisra'el, ADONAI Eloheinu, ADONAI echad [Hear, O Isra'el, the LORD our God, the LORD is one], and you are to love ADONAI your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your understanding and with all your strength.’” (Mark+ 2:29-30)

They will prostrate themselves before you; they will pray to you: 'Surely God is with you; there is no other, other gods are nothing.'" (Isaiah 45:14 CJB)

For thus says ADONAI, who created the heavens, God, who shaped and made the earth, who established and created it not to be chaos, but formed it to be lived in: "I am ADONAI; there is no other. (Isaiah 45:18 CJB)

Let them stand and present their case! Indeed, let them take counsel together. Who foretold this long ago, announced it in times gone by? Wasn't it I, ADONAI? There is no other God besides Me, a just God and a Savior; there is none besides Me. (Isaiah 45:21 CJB)

Look to me, and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God; there is no other. (Isaiah 45:22 CJB)

ADONAI is Israel’s Savior:

He said: “ADONAI is my Rock, my fortress and deliverer, the God who is my Rock, in whom I find shelter, my shield, the power that saves me, my stronghold and my refuge. My savior, you have saved me from violence.” (2 Samuel 22:2-3)

I will recall the grace of ADONAI and the praises of ADONAI, because of all that ADONAI has granted us and his great goodness toward the house of Isra'el, which he bestowed on them in keeping with his mercy, in keeping with the greatness of his grace. 8 For he said, "They are indeed my people, children who are not disloyal." So he became their Savior. (Isaiah 63:7-8)

But I will be hiding my face from them because of all the evil they will have done in turning to other gods. (Deuteronomy 31:18 CJB)

certain scoundrels have sprung up among you and have drawn away the inhabitants of their city by saying, 'Let's go and serve other gods, which you haven't known,' (Deuteronomy 13:13 CJB)

and not turn away from any of the words I am ordering you today, neither to the right nor to the left, to follow after other gods and serve them. (Deuteronomy 28:14 CJB)

The people answered, "Far be it from us that we would abandon ADONAI to serve other gods; (Joshua 24:16 CJB)

They abandoned ADONAI, the God of their fathers, who had brought them out of the land of Egypt, and followed other gods, selected from the gods of the peoples around them, and worshipped them; this made ADONAI angry. (Judges 2:12 CJB)

Yet you abandoned me and served other gods; therefore I will not rescue you any more. (Judges 10:13 CJB)

Please, now, may my lord the king hear what his servant is saying. If it is ADONAI who has stirred you up against me, let him receive an offering. But if it's human beings, then a curse on them before ADONAI! - because, as things stand today, they have driven me out, so that I can no longer share in ADONAI's inheritance - they've said, 'Go, serve other gods!' (1 Samuel 26:19 CJB)

But if you turn away from following me, you or your children, and do not observe my mitzvot and regulations which I have set before you, and go and serve other gods, worshipping them; (1 Kings 9:6 CJB)

You are to observe forever the laws, rulings, Torah and mitzvah which he wrote for you. You are not to fear other gods, (2 Kings 17:37 CJB)

I will pronounce my judgments against them for all their wickedness in abandoning me, offering incense to other gods and worshipping what their own hands made. (Jeremiah 1:16 CJB)

if you stop oppressing foreigners, orphans and widows; if you stop shedding innocent blood in this place; and if you stop following other gods, to your own harm; (Jeremiah 7:6 CJB)

I will ruin this evil people, who refuse to hear my words and live according to their own stubborn inclinations, who go after other gods to serve and worship them. They will be like this loincloth, which is useless for anything. (Jeremiah 13:10 CJB)

then you are to say to them, 'It is because your ancestors abandoned me, says ADONAI, and went after other gods, serving and worshipping them, but abandoned me and did not keep my Torah. (Jeremiah 16:11 CJB)

False prophets are to be put to death and their message is to be ignored.

If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you and gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder comes true, concerning which he spoke to you, saying, ‘Let us go after other gods (whom you have not known) and let us serve them,’ you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams; for the LORD your God is testing you to find out if you love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. You shall follow the LORD your God and fear Him; and you shall keep His commandments, listen to His voice, serve Him, and cling to Him. But that prophet or that dreamer of dreams shall be put to death, because he has counseled rebellion against the LORD your God who brought you from the land of Egypt and redeemed you from the house of slavery, to seduce you from the way in which the LORD your God commanded you to walk. So you shall purge the evil from among you. If your brother, your mother’s son, or your son or daughter, or the wife you cherish, or your friend who is as your own soul, entice you secretly, saying, ‘Let us go and serve other gods’ (whom neither you nor your fathers have known, of the gods of the peoples who are around you, near you or far from you, from one end of the earth to the other end), you shall not yield to him or listen to him; and your eye shall not pity him, nor shall you spare or conceal him. (Deut. 13:1-8)

But the prophet who speaks a word presumptuously in My name which I have not commanded him to speak, or which he speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet shall die. You may say in your heart, “How will we know the word which the LORD has not spoken?” When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing does not come about or come true, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him. (Deut 18:20-22)

How Israel will recognize a false prophet

The false prophet entices God's people to follow other gods (Deut 13:2; 18:20)

The false prophet counsels God's people into rebellion against Him. (Deut 13:5)

The false prophet seduces God's people from the commandments. (Deut. 13:5)

The false prophet claims to speak in the name of Adonai and what he says does not come about or come true (Deut. 18:22)

 

The Christian “god” is clearly not the God of the Bible.

Because most Christians are totally incapable of intelligently articulating the true Biblical doctrine of the triune nature of God, they actually teach that there are three gods:

If one delves deeply into the understanding of the nature of HaShem as held by most Gentile Christians, what one discovers is indeed an erroneous tri-theistic (three individuals) rather than a triune (three-in-one) concept of HaShem.

Many (or perhaps even most) of these individuals think of “God the Father” as the fierce desert God of the so-called “Old Testament” Who gave Moses a set of laws so complex and unreasonable that nobody could ever obey them, Who provided the death penalty for something so trivial as sassing one’s parents, and Who was anxiously awaiting the opportunity to slay the transgressors.

They conceive of “God the Son” as the baby Who began His existence in a manger in Bethlehem, surrounded by sheep, cattle, shepherds, and wise men, and maybe even an angel or two; Who is somehow both God and man (though they are not sure when or how He became God); Who created a new religion called “Christianity” to replace the error of Judaism; and Who taught that the Torah was abolished in favor of a new set of laws that were “written on the heart” and which pretty much allow one to do whatever one wants as long as one believes that “Jesus” died for their sins and was resurrected and will some day return to earth to reign as King for a thousand years and then take them all to heaven for eternity.

And when it comes to “The Holy Spirit” there are so many different concepts that there is no clear consensus of opinion within “Christianity.” For some, the Holy Spirit is a force or power of God that somehow “inhabits” or “possesses” Christians and gives them special supernatural powers or gifts; many believe that this particular function of the Spirit was only for the spread of the Gospel until the so-called “New Testament” was completed and then that function ceased. When I was a child I once had a pastor who had a Doctor of Divinity degree and who, when questioned about the Holy Spirit, generally replied with something akin to, “Well, we really don't know much about it so we just avoid the subject.” [MORE]

This concept of three gods (or even a “three-headed” god) as presented by the Church, especially the “Gentile God Jesus,” is heresy according to the Bible! If “Jesus” is a god, He is clearly “another god.” If the Christian god is actually three gods, he is clearly not the god of the Bible.

The god of the Christians breaks his covenants, divorces his bride, and marries another bride. This is clearly not the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob!

 

Why the “Jesus” of the Church is disqualified from being the Messiah.

The Messiah of the Bible will be a Torah-observant Jew. The “Jesus” of the Church is obviously a Gentile because he has a Greek name.

Since (according to the Church) Jesus taught his disciples that the Torah is obsolete and there is no need for them to keep ADONAI’s mitzvot (commandments), then he clearly taught against God's covenant, and therefore was disqualified as Israel’s Messiah.

The Jesus of the Church is clearly a false prophet (see below) and therefore cannot possibly be the Messiah. 

 

 

Why the “Jesus” of the Church is a false prophet.

The Jesus of the Church (according to the Church) enticed his followers to follow either three gods or a three-headed god, clearly none of which is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

The Jesus of the Church (according to the Church) started a new religion, and all of his disciples converted away from Torah to Christianity.
