"O L-RD, Who are my power and my strength and my refuge in the day of trouble, to You nations will come from the ends of the earth and say, 'Only lies have our fathers handed down to us, emptiness in which there is nothing of any avail! Can a man make gods for himself, and they are no gods? 'Therefore, behold I let them know; at this time I will let them know My power and My might, and they shall know that My Name is the L-RD".
Jeremiah 16:19-21

Q & A – Did Jesus Claim to be God?

May 27, 2011

Question: I have heard Christian missionaries claim that Jesus deliberately screened or veiled his divine nature on earth, so when he is asked a question by one of his disciples about the time of the end he can honestly answer, that no man, not even the Son knows the time of the end, only the […]

Q & A – Who was Jesus?

May 27, 2011

Question: Apparently, you guys have not read about the foolishness of the Sanhedrin 2000 years ago.  Or perhaps, God has hardened your hearts. “Eloi Eloi lama sabachthani?” I’m sure you understand this as clearly as the Sanhedrin 2000 years ago understood this.  Do you really believe that a poor carpenter born in Bethlehem of the […]

Christianity – How Paul Invented Christianity

May 26, 2011

Abstract Paul made the Jewish leader, Jesus, who expected God’s visitation to save the Jews from foreign oppression, into the saviour of an Hellenistic mystery cult. Paul was the cult leader. He transferred the divine title of God to the messiah, and substituted effort of will by faith. Faith is a cop out. It is empty without […]

Paul’s Schism -“Oh, What a tangled web we weave, when we first practice to deceive” – Walter Scott.

May 26, 2011

If there was a real Jesus, then surely Peter was the most qualified to pass on his legacy. His name is prominent in the Gospels, Acts and in the Epistles, and the Catholic Church calls him their first pope.

Does Israel’s Creator Require Blood to Atone for Sin?

May 24, 2011

By Timothy S. Williams “…without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.”(Hebrews 9:22) The central theme of Christianity and the New Testament (NT) is the sacrificial offering of the blood of ‘Jesus Christ’ as atonement for the sins of the entire world. “The blood of ‘Jesus’ was shed in our stead and is the […]

God Hates Human Sacrifices…

May 24, 2011

Who died on the cross? Was it Jesus-the-god, or was it Jesus-the-human? If it was Jesus-the-god, Jews don’t believe that God can die. If it was Jesus-the-human, then all Christians have in the death of Jesus was a human death, a human sacrifice. Jews believe that God hates the very idea of human sacrifice. IN […]

Jews Believe in the Satan, but not in the Devil.

May 23, 2011

by Rabbi Stuart Federow   There is a difference between The Satan and the devil. IN SHORT… For Jews, anything that even remotely conflicts with the idea that God is One and Indivisible will be rejected because it precludes true, pure, monotheism.

What Jews Believe…

May 23, 2011

Welcome to What Jews Believe Jewish beliefs concerning life, death, sin, forgiveness, and atonement are different from Christian beliefs.
