Jesus was nothing more than a good Jewish man


Note: I basically left this note as it was received.

Incidentally, before I delete your nonsense comments of alleged religious significance. I don’t understand why you call the Jewish Essene Rabbi Yehoshua, (who lived over 2000 years ago) Jesus and/or Christ.

Also, Yehoshua ate Kosher and you eat pork.

Yehoshua did not eat meat and milk products at the same time...but you do.

Graven images and statues were prohibited in the TEN COMMANDMENTS that the JEW Yehoshua followed to the letter.

Your churches and places of worship are filled with icons, paintings, idols depicting Jews, including Mary Yehoshua’s mother, and Yehoshua on a cross.

Yehoshua was circumcised and you “Christians” are not.

Yehoshua celebrated his Bar Mitzvah, and you don’t.

What on Earth does your mumbo jumbo religion have anything to do with the religion of Yehoshua the Jewish Essene?


Sabbath (the day when G-d rested) started on Friday at sundown for Yehoshua... your Christian Sabbath is on Sunday.

Yehoshua would NEVER have condoned the non-stop murders and wars between Catholics and Protestants... or the evil crusades, the “Holy” Inquisition and its forced conversion and auto da fé, the pogroms, the Shoah!

The 2000 year old dead and buried JEW you imagine was a messiah must be turning in his grave!


My previous answers must have bothered you since you are writing again after telling me not to contact you again.

The name "Jesus" is used because that is how his name is spelled in English, which is the language we are speaking. The Greek form of his name is "Iēsous" and the Hebrew form would be "Yeshua." I noticed that you have no problems using the English translation for "Mary," instead of the Hebrew name "Myriam" or the Greek name "Maria."

There is no historical indication that Jesus was a part of the Essene sect. Yes, Jesus was Jewish and lived under the Old Testament laws. Since he lived without sin, he would have kept the Law perfectly. "For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin" (Hebrews 4:15). This was as Isaiah prophesied, "His grave was assigned with wicked men, yet He was with a rich man in His death, because He had done no violence, nor was there any deceit in His mouth" (Isaiah 53:9). However, this does not mean that Jesus thought the Law was to continue. He stated that he came to bring the Law to a conclusion. "Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished" (Matthew 5:17-18). This too was prophecies. "Behold, days are coming," declares the LORD, "when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah, not like the covenant which I made with their fathers in the day I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, although I was a husband to them," declares the LORD. "But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days," declares the LORD, "I will put My law within them and on their heart I will write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. They will not teach again, each man his neighbor and each man his brother, saying, 'Know the LORD,' for they will all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them," declares the LORD, "for I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more" " (Jeremiah 31:31-34).

You clearly have never been to a Church of Christ. The room where we gather has nothing on the walls. We have no statues. We pray only to God.

I agree that Jesus has nothing to do with religious infighting. These people claim to follow Jesus but they really follow their own traditions. Much like the Jews in the past and today. "Then the Lord said, "Because this people draw near with their words and honor Me with their lip service, but they remove their hearts far from Me, and their reverence for Me consists of tradition learned by rote" (Isaiah 29:13).

But I disagree with your statement that Jesus is in the grave. As David prophesied, Jesus did not remain in the grave. "I have set the LORD continually before me; because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and my glory rejoices; my flesh also will dwell securely. For You will not abandon my soul to Sheol; nor will You allow Your Holy One to undergo decay" (Psalms 16:8-10). As David also said, Jesus is now at the right hand of God. "The LORD says to my Lord: "Sit at My right hand until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet" " (Psalms 110:1).
