Posts

This is probably going to be one of the most important posts I’ve put together.

The last couple of weeks, I’ve been doing a ‘deep dive’ on learning what happened to the early xtian movement in Eretz Yisrael – and what I learned is a game-changer. Not least, for all those xtians out there who keep trying to blame everything that’s going wrong in the world on ‘the Jews’.

If you look online, there is now alarming amounts of hatred against Jews, and their so-called ‘synagogue of Satan’ coming out of the woodwork in the alt-media, and particularly on sites and associated with fundamentalist xtians.

But as we’re about to learn, all the stuff they are blaming on ‘Jewish bankers’, etc, can actually be traced to a group of people who are NOT Jews – and haven’t been for 2,000 years.

Rather, they are the descendants of various branches of ‘Jewish Christians’, who were oppressed by both the Roman Catholic and Byzantine (Greek Orthodox) churches – and so went underground.

Because there is a lot of ground to cover, I’m going to format this post as bullet points, and keep things very tight. There’s a LOT of implications from this information, but we’ll cover that in more detail – or not – in future posts.

Ready?

Let’s begin.

====

INTRO:

Where are all these ‘Jewish Christians’ coming from?

Off the back of the posts making the connections between ‘Shabtai Tzvi’ and the SHACH, and also, how the Sadducees seem to have morphed into the Karaites, and the Karaite connection to ‘Khazar’, I started researching where all this overlap between the core Jewish community and these ‘Jewish xtians’ court Jews actually began.

The answer is shocking:

It began literally 2,000 years ago, and has continued ever since.

In order to understand what is really going on in our own community, and how it’s been so compromised for so long, I had to start learning about what was really going on in the first three centuries of the xtian church.

That is the information I’m going to share with you now – as even most xtians have no idea about what was really going on back then.

====

FACT 1: Many of the first apostles and ‘early church fathers’ were actually Jesus’s brothers.

For now, we are going to park the discussion of whether Yoshki was fathered by a Roman soldier, or not, and all the other discussions you find in places like the Toldot Yeshu, about him being a mamzer. I will cover this angle in another post.

Also, it seems obvious that Jesus was married, and did have his own children – but again we’ll cover that in more detail in another post, if required.

What is beyond question, and what is even clearly mentioned in the New Testament is that Jesus had a bunch of brothers.

And most of his family members were part of his movement, and were part of his group of 12 apostles.

All the blood relatives of Yoshki are known by the term ‘Desposyni’.

We will come back to this angle of the story another time.

====

FACT 2: Jesus was only made ‘divine’ and the product of a miraculous virgin birth after 325 CE.

That’s when the Roman Emperor Constantine formally adopted xtianity as the religion of the Roman Empire – and basically suppressed a whole bunch of historical information about who Yoshki really was, in order to make ‘Roman’ xtianity a better ‘fit’ with pagan views.

Until that point, it was widely known that Yoshki was married; and that most of the church’s founding fathers were his family members.

In fact, the Romans had spent the last 2-300 years trying to track down Yoshki’s family members so they could eradicate them, to try and prevent the movement from growing and spreading.

====

FACT 3: There were deep divisions between the members of the early church.

After Yoshki’s death, the movement was headed up by his brother ‘James’ (Ya’acov), who was proclaimed the first ‘bishop’ of Jerusalem.

Now, there’s a lot of strange things going on with James, so I’m just going to mention some of them, with the understanding that the research is still a work in progress, and that there is so much deliberate disinformation going on, we may never really know the total truth.

James appears to have been a priest in the Temple, maybe even an alternate ‘High Priest’.

If this is true, then that also makes ‘Yoshki’ a Cohen, and it also starts to link up with the heretical priests who schismed out as ‘Sadduccees’, ‘Boethusians’, and Essenes.

==

‘Bishop James’ and the rest of Yoshki’s family were observant, orthodox Jews – who believed that Yoshki was the moshiach.

After Yoshki died, in whichever way he died, they expected him to ‘rise from the dead’ and complete his mission of bringing the geula.

They had their main ‘Jewish Christian’ synagogue on Mount Zion, apparently next to the current Tomb of David, and the Armenian Church up the road claims to be built on the ruin of James’ old house.

‘Bishop James’ continued leading the movement in Jerusalem for 30 years after Yoshki’s death (I’m deliberately leaving dates out, as that’s something I need to look at in a separate post.) 

The New Testament teaches that James was thrown off the ‘pinnacle of the temple’ into the Kidron Valley – i.e. he was apparently stoned to death, by being shoved off the temple walls.

====

There is a xtian tradition that ‘Bishop James’, Yoshki’s brother, was buried close by in a tomb that archeologists later identified as belonging to a priestly family from the time of the Maccabees called ‘Bene Hezir’.

If James and Yoshki were actually cohanim, there are more possible links.

And in terms of the timing of all this, the Jewish sources that have Yoshki as the student of Yehoshua Ben Perachya suggest everything happened at least 100 years earlier than xtianity says.

Lastly, ‘Bene Hezir’ could actually be read ‘Bene HAZIR’ – the sons of a pig.

Which kind of fits the whole story.

But I digress.

====

Yoshki and the earliest xtians are persecuted by the Jewish community in Jerusalem, because they are heretics.

It’s not even so much that Yoshki and his followers believe that he’s the ‘moshiach’ – although that becomes a huge problem after he’s actually dead.

And it’s not even so much that Yoshki is using black magic to do his miracles and ‘persuade’ more and more Jews to follow him and his movement, although these acts were also punishable by death.

The bigger problem is that Yoshki is mamash trying to set up a new religion, and to come away from the Torah.  He claims that large parts of the Torah weren’t written by God, and so don’t need to be followed (just like Reform….). His biggest ‘problem’ is the sacrificial service in the Temple, which he and his followers are continually railing against.

And that ‘anti sacrifice’, anti -Torah vibe continues throughout the New Testament.

====

That said, Yoshki and ‘Bishop James’ are only interested in creating this new religion for Jews, and they still expect all new converts to xtianity to keep kosher and shabbat, to pay some sort of ‘lip service’ respect to the Torah, and to become circumcised.

====

One of the biggest persecutors of Yoshki at this time is ‘Saul of Tarsus’.

Long story short, long after Yoshki’s death, ‘Saul of Tarsus’ says he has an epiphany on the road to Damascus, and is now a big believer in Yoshki, who calls himself ‘Paul’.

‘Bishop James’ and the rest of Yoshki’s family and followers don’t really believe him, and don’t really trust him, but at least initially, he’s making a very good show of being sincere, so they kind of ‘go with it’.

From Jewish sources, it seems very likely that ‘Saul / Paul’ was actually deliberately trying to take ‘xtianity’ away from the Jewish community, and to make a deliberate break between ‘xtianity’ and Judaism.

And he does that very well.

He goes on a lot of ‘missions’ preaching xtianity to non-Jewish communities all over the place – but basically teaches that it’s enough just to believe in Yoshki, and people don’t have to get circumcised, or keep the other commandments for Jews.

====

Long story short:

Before long, there is a huge divide in the early xtian church.

‘Bishop James’ and his group of ‘Jewish Christians’ are on one side of it, and still expecting new recruits to ‘become Jews’ first, while the communities begun by Paul are way more hellenistic and pagan, and don’t expect circumcision or basic adherence to the Torah.

====

FACT 4: The ‘Paulian’ version of xtianity is the one that gets adopted by Emperor Constantine, and the Roman Empire in the 4th century.

And from that point on, the ‘Jewish Christian’ version of xtianity, which is basically some version of ‘Modern Orthodox Judaism’, together with the belief that Yoshki was the moshiach, and will ‘rise again’ to finish the job, starts to be persecuted as ‘schismatic’ by the early Catholic church and increasingly goes underground.

====

FACT 5: The ‘Jewish Christian’ version of xtianity never disappears.

It’s practitioners are externally Jews, sometimes even pious, ascetic Jews – who happen to believe that Yoshki is the moshiach, and will come back again to finish the job.

They don’t believe Yoshki is ‘divine’, and they know that Yoshki had a large, extended family – many of whom actually continue to perpetuate this version of ‘Jewish xtianity’ down the centuries.

They hate ‘orthodox christianity’ for twisting the teachings of Yoshki, and persecuting them.

And they are probably still on a mission to ‘convert’ the rest of the Jews into believing in their false messiah.

====

So, to recap.

By the 4th century, you are looking at three main groups of ‘Jewish xtians’:

  • The ‘Desposyni’, or Yoshki ‘royal family‘, who go underground, because their very existence is an embarrassment to the Catholic Church’s teachings about Yoshki being divine, celibate and having no blood relatives.
  • The Jewish Christians who disagreed with Paul, and believe that Yoshki is moshiach, but not ‘divine’, and who basically keep most of the Torah’s commandments (this group is known as ‘EBIONITES’).
  • The gentile Church – ‘planted’ by Paul, who have no Torah, no circumcision, and believe Yoshki is divine and came into the world via a ‘virgin birth’.

====

FACT 6: The ‘Ebionites’ continue to evolve, and develop a way of life that favors communism and vegetarianism.

I.e. – ‘you’ll own nothing, and you’ll be happy’.

Does this sound familiar?

The Ebionites, like Yoshki and ‘Bishop James’ before them, don’t believe that everything that is written in the Torah comes from God.

So, they ‘cut out’ the stuff they don’t like, but whatever they agree with, they make it an imperative to do.

(Again, does this sound familiar?)

So, ‘Jewish law’ is still in force, but the Ebionites make themselves the arbiters of which parts of the Torah should be followed, and also replace animal sacrifice with ‘baptism’ instead, and regular immersions in water.

====

Fact 7: The Talmud has a lot of references to these ‘Jewish Christian’ minim – but that information has been deliberately censored.

I will cover this aspect in more detail, in the next post, but for now it’s enough to know that these ‘Jewish Christian’ minim were still very much part of the standard Jewish community, and interacting with authentic Jews day in, day out.

EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE XTIANS.

In particular, these ‘Jewish xtians’ were associated with healing – albeit via avoda zara – so many people were still going to them from the Jewish community, and this is how they would ‘missionise’ more people to join their movement.

This is important to note, as there are many ‘medical doctors’ in the families of those who are known Sabbatean-Frankists, including ‘Jewish’ physicians to Kings and Queens.

So, remember that ‘Jewish Christians’ were always linked to ‘healing’, going forward.

====

Fact 8: These Ebionites preach ‘universalism’.

‘Interfaith’ is totally a Jewish Christian idea.

====

Fact 9: Around the 4th century, the Ebionites schism, and a new branch with gnostic tendencies called the ‘Elkcesaites’ is formed.

Why is this so important to understand?

Because ‘gnosticism’ basically teaches that there is a ‘good God’, and a ‘bad God’.

And that the ‘bad God’ is the one who made this lowly, physical world that is full of pain and suffering.

And that the ‘good God’ is only to be found in the spiritual realm, and that ‘enlightenment’ is when people leave their physical bodies, and return to being totally spiritual beings.

==

What I just wrote above explains everything that is going on right now.

Because we Jews know that Ein Od Milvado – there is only God, and God is doing everything, and God created everything, and God is only good.

But these guys are teaching that God is ‘evil’, chas v’shalom.

So, they are worshipping the ‘opposite’ of God….

And they also believe that it’s the biggest mitzva in the world to ‘release’ humanity from the suffering it endures while incarnated in a human body.

And that’s why, they really believe their plans for ‘mass murder’ are a kindness to humanity, and to the world.

====

We’ll come back to this in another post, but I want you to understand very clearly, that everything that is being blamed on ‘the Jews’ is actually rooted, very deeply, in xtianity itself, with it’s teachings that the ‘God of the Old Testament’ is bad.

====

Fact 10: Ebionite philosophy underpins the Koran, and Islam.

There were a lot of Ebionite communities in Arabia, and it’s certain that Mohammed interacted with them, and got a lot of his philosophy from them – i.e. that Yoshki was a ‘prophet’ preaching enlightenment, and that he, Mohammed, was the next prophet in that line of prophets, with the Koran.

(Separately, it’s known that Mohammed was illiterate, and that the Koran was written by Jews. More on that another time.)

====

I’m going to stop here, even though I have a lot more to share.

Bottom line, for this post, is that the ‘Jewish Christians’ who remained Jews never left the broader Jewish community.

They still wanted to identify as ‘Jews’, culturally.

They still believed in basic stuff like circumcision, and were proud of their Jewishness.

But at the same time, they believed that Yoshki was the moshiach, and wanted to ‘recreate’ Judaism by picking and choosing the bits of the Torah that appealed to them, and ditching the rest.

And some of them were very strict, and very ascetic in their practices, especially in relation to ‘penances’ and fasting.

(Just take a look at some of the stuff that Opus Dei practices, you’ll get the idea…)

====

In the next post, we will continue to trace what happened to this ‘Ebionite Jewish-Christian’ influence – who were neither ‘orthodox xtians’ nor orthodox Jews, and who actually hated both – to see if we can figure out a little more about what is going on today in our Jewish community, and how it connects up to ‘Christian Zionists’ and Sabbatean-Frankist-Freemasons.

Stay tuned.

Just when you think the State of Israel couldn’t possibly sink any lower….you discover you are totally wrong about that.

Off the back of THIS post, that started to uncover how so many of our “retired generals” in Israel are basically licking the butts of ‘Jews for Jesus’, mamash, I decided to take a closer look at what some of these ‘Jews for Jesus’ organisations and people are actually doing in Israel.

I have to say, I got pretty miserable.

Read on.

====

The first thing to tell you is that ‘Jews for Jesus’ figured out that was really bad branding, and that even the most secular Jew will baulk at that name.

So, they kind of ‘hide’ all the Yoshki stuff under the broader name of ‘messianics’, and then they also have a bunch of cute, fluffy-sounding projects in Israel that function as cover for their missionary activities.

If you go back to HERE, you’ll find a post on the old blog of Joel Chernoff from 2011, called ‘Messianic Jews and Aliyah!’

There, Chernoff is boasting how the State of Israel’s attitude to ‘Jews for Jesus’ is softening up, and how the country is letting more and more of these people flood in.

One of the comments to that blog post really caught my eye.

Here’s what it said:

====

What is the ‘Joseph Project’, that is causing the State of Israel to change it’s attitude towards ‘Jews for Jesus’ missionaries in Israel?

HERE is their website.

And screenshotted below, you can find testimonies from a bunch of Jews, thanking the ‘Jews for Jesus’ Joseph Project missionaries for all their ‘help’:

====

Maybe, you could argue that it’s not such a big deal for charity organisations like Shalva and Beit Issie Shapiro to receive money from ‘Jews for Jesus’.

After reading sickening comments from ‘Beit Issie Shapiro’ thanking these xtian missionaries for working for ‘spiritual and physical restoration of Israel’, I have to say I disagree.

But the fact that we have politicians and mayors sucking up to Jews for Jesus, mamash – is totally sickening and inappropriate.

And remember, we are dealing with XTIAN MISSIONARIES here, and as this video shows, they are also getting access to start indoctrinating our youth in the IDF, too.

====

Just listen to the ‘Shmuel’ from the Joseph Project, (above) talking about the project he’s leading with young adults who are post-army in Israel.

Listen to all the xtian-missionary phrases tumbling out of his mouth.

While the ‘anti-Torah’ Freemason-Frankists running this country attack any attempt to promote Judaism as ‘pushing religion’ on people, they are mamash inviting xtian missionaries into the country to promote xtianity any way they can.

Are you starting to see how this works?

====

In case you think ‘the Joseph Project’ and Joel Chernoff are unusual one-offs, the really bad news is that they aren’t.

There’s a ‘Messianic Jewish’ news site called: Israeltoday.co.il

(This site is also where I found information about that bunch of Jews for Jesus in Talpiot, and the ‘xtian’ background of the Megaleh Amukot, that I wrote about HERE.)

Most of its stories are behind a pay wall, but here’s the top snippet of a story that caught my eye, which in turn helped me to figure out just how widespread all these ‘Jews for Jesus’ organisations really in the State of Israel

Troubles began two years ago when a few Messianic Jewish leaders reported to the Hebrew-speaking Leadership Conference on what they saw as troubling theological positions being promoted by a ministry called Tikkun.

Based in Jerusalem, Tikkun has planted and oversees numerous local Hebrew and Russian speaking congregations in Israel. Their leadership remain highly respected by both Messianic Jews in Israel and Christians abroad.

====

When you click on that link for the Tikkun website, you see things like this:

====

Puke!

But more importantly, these sites also contain links to their Jews for Jesus ‘ministries’ and projects they have going on in the Holy Land.

‘Tikkun’ alone has 19 missionizing churches – specifically aimed at Jews – all over the country.

Here’s a screenshot:

====

And don’t think they aren’t focussing in on the kids and young people – because they are.

On the Youth page of Tikkun, you find links to missionary organisations operating out of Jerusalem like NETIVAH, below.

Please, take the time to watch this. It’s two minutes long, but it encapsulates what’s really going on here – they are planting missionaries in schools and in the IDF, amongst many other places.

====

I am finding all this so disturbing, it’s literally giving me a headache.

====

Meanwhile, if we go back to Joel Chernoff’s ‘Messianic Jewish Alliance of America‘ – the people behind things like ‘The Joseph Project’ – we discover they also have a massive network of missionary churches and organisations across Israel, too.

This screenshot comes from HERE:

250 missionaries heading up ‘Jews for Jesus’ organisations in Israel!!!

And again, this is just the tip of a monstrous iceberg. And some of the heads of this snake are also pretty ‘frum’.

Here’s another screenshot, from a ‘Jews for Jesus’ organisation in Israel called Hashivenu:

====

When I googled ‘Asher Intrater’ – leader of the Tikkun bunch of missionaries in Israel – I got to HERE.

It’s a site covering ‘Messianic Community in Israel’ news.

It also has a ‘Ministry Directory’ of affiliated groups and organisations in Israel – again, just for Tikkun – which stretches on for 20 pages….

Here’s a screenshot:

====

Deep, deep sigh.

These people are everywhere.

And the State of Israel – it’s generals, it’s politicians, it’s bureaucrats, even it’s rabbis – are sucking up to them and giving them full support to ‘missionize’ the Jews, all the while pretending that the State of Israel is a Jewish country.

Those missionaries pretending to be Jews in French Hill were literally just the very smallest tip of what is really going on in this country.

====

Watch this – future PM of Israel, Yair Lapid, being interviewed by his ‘good friend’ on the Evangelical ‘All Israel’ news:

(Listen from the 8th minute on, when he refers to evangelical xtians as his brothers and his sisters and starts mamash sucking up them. Have you ever heard him say something like this about Chareidi Jews?)

====

Yair Lapid’s sister-in-law was an openly practising ‘messianic’ xtian in Israel.

Snippet from HERE:

Lapid fought in the past against a law which would restrict missionary activity in Israel, despite the fact that his father, Tommy Lapid, supported such a law.

Yair Lapid claimed in 2015 that Moshe Gafni, who proposed the law, was “trying to fulfill my father’s last testament” but claimed that his father “had changed his mind” on the matter.

The law would have closed the Messianic community in which Lapid’s brother-in law and sister-in-law were members and it appears that this may have been the source of Lapid’s opposition to the law.

====

This guy is the second-in-command in the State of Israel, and is set to take over as PM very soon.

What that really means, is that the ‘mask’ that these people are Jews, and support a Jewish state, and respect Judaism, and our Torah is about to totally come off.

That’s actually a good thing.

Because then, more and more of us will start to realise who we are really dealing with, and why the ‘State of Israel’ is probably the most openly anti-semitic, anti-Chareidi, and anti-Torah force in the world today.

(And probably, it’s been that way right from the beginning…)

====

The Rav, Rav Berland is holding an atzeret by the Kotel tonight, at 8.30pm (May 10th, 2022).

If you can make it, please come.

I’ve been to many of these prayer gatherings, and the Rav only ever calls them when there are some big ‘judgments’ hanging over the Jewish people that need to be sweetened.

We are under attack, from without and within, like never before.

Xtians, Jews-for-Jesus ‘messianics’, Sabbateans, Freemason-Frankists – the list just keeps growing longer and longer, and honestly, Iran and home-grown terrorists are barely getting a look in at this point, as more and more of us are realising they are just the ‘puppets’ holding the guns and axes, while the real evil people pull their strings from behind the curtain.

==

Tonight is Netzach she b’Netzach, in the counting of the Omer.

Breslov teaching holds that this is the ‘day of Rabbenu’, Rebbe Nachman, when everything can be fixed, even past gilgulim.

So, it’s a very meaningful time to be holding an atzeret at the Kotel, with the Rav in attendance.

And boy, do we need some sweetening and fixing.

Did ‘HaKohen Al-Khazaris’ really take over the Jewish community?

That is the question (based on more of the information we uncovered in THIS post.)

There’s a lot that needs to be birured before we can really even try to answer that properly, so I decided to start trying to pin down more of the ‘fake Jews’ who have been leading our communities for the last at least 500 years (at least….).

The person I decided to start with was Natan Neta Spiro, the ancestor of known Sabbatean, Jonathan Eybshutz.

(If it’s news to you that Jonathan Eybshutz was indeed a Sabbatean – and one who practised incest and wrote books promoting it in the Jewish community – read THIS.)

====

Natan Neta Spiro (1585-1633) was known as the ‘Megaleh Amukot’ after his work of that name.

He’s been on my radar for a while as an interesting person, and one who seemed to have some very funny ideas, to say the least, that predated the false messiah Shabtai Tzvi by at least 30 years.

This snippet comes from YIVO, HERE:

During the eighteenth century, Spira’s name was linked to a putative Sabbatian sect, involving Jews and Lutherans, that was connected to Yonatan Eybeschütz.

Although the sect was established in the 1720s, its writings claimed Spira to be its founder, and maintained that he had received a divine revelation calling upon him to adopt the Christian faith.

Eybeschütz was, in fact, descended from Spira, and indeed was proud of this lineage. But the historical anachronism that ties the lives of the two men has not been sufficiently clarified. Indeed, Spira died 32 years before the birth of the Sabbatian movement.

The problematic connection is not entirely baseless, however, as scholars have claimed that Spira drew a great deal from Christianity and even revived various elements of the Jewish–Christian tradition that are found in midrashic literature. 

====

That YIVO entry continues:

A historical error may be the source of the mystery: it seems that Natan ben Shelomoh Spira of Kraków was confused with Natan ben Re’uven Shapira ha-Yerushalmi (d. 1667), who left Kraków for Jerusalem and was a kabbalist.

The latter raised money in Amsterdam for the Jews of Jerusalem and made contact there with Dutch and English Christians with millenarian views, who regarded him as the rabbi who would bring Jews to acknowledge the truth of Christianity.

Although Spira died before the rise of the Sabbatian movement and its subsequent Jewish and Christian incarnations, the fact that Jewish, Jewish-Sabbatian, and Jewish-Christian sources all link him to messianism and to Christianity arouses interest, and points to the complexity of the connection between the Jewish and Christian worlds in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

====

So, I was trying to find out more about this ‘Sabbatean sect’ in the 1720s that was linked to both Lutherans and Jonathan Eybshutz, and of course, that’s proving quite challenging.

And it may also be some deliberate disinformation, because if Jonathan Eybshutz was linked to any xtian group, that would appear to have been the Jesuits.

As a young man in Prague, Eybshutz worked closely with the Jesuits, in particular, leader of the Prague ‘Inquisition’ Francis Haselbauer, to put out a heavily – and unusually – censored version of the Talmud in Prague, where all the passages deemed to be ‘heretical’ to xtianity and its founder was censored.

But where this censorship was particularly unusual, is that Eybshutz ‘rewrote’ the offending passages in such a smooth way, secretly substituting his own heretical ideas and opinions for those originally found in the Talmud, that it was almost impossible for a reader to understand which was ‘Jesuit-sponsored propaganda’ – and what was the original text.

====

The following snippet comes from this article:

Jonathan Eybshutz: censorer of the Talmud printed in Prague, 1728

According to William Popper (Censorship of Hebrew Books pg. 112, citing other sources) the permanent inquisition commission in Prague consisted of three Jesuits, including Haselbauer, not Dominicans.

Popper further writes (pg. 116) that Haselbauer enforced searches of Jewish homes for uncensored Jewish books, which would be confiscated.

Because of the unusually harsh situation, Prague’s Chief Rabbi David Oppenheim did not bring his amazing and famous library to Prague with him when he assumed office in 1702. Instead it remained in the custody of his father-in-law Leffmann Behrends in Hanover….

Under these conditions Rabbi Jonathan Eybeschutz, then a young rabbi in Prague with the title Darshan, obtained permission from Haselbauer to print a heavily censored Talmud.

====

Take a look at that post.

It brings the title page, and goes through three specific ‘changes’ that Eybshutz made to just one daf!

If you go HERE, you’ll find an essay by Frankist historian Pawel Maciejko called:

The Rabbi and the Jesuit: On Rabbi Jonathan Eibeschütz and Father Franciscus Haselbauer Editing the Talmud

Here’s a pertinent snippet:

[D]uring his early years, the most important controversy concerning Eibeschütz was not the dispute surrounding his suspected Sabbateanism and the heterodox writings attributed to him but rather the outrage engendered by his friendly relations with the local Catholic clergy and his alleged involvement in the publication of heavily censored editions of the Pentateuch, the Talmud, and the prayer book.

In the eyes of many contemporaries, the damage caused by the appearance of these latter publications vastly overshadowed any harm stemming from the heretical views expressed in Eibeschütz’s kabbalistic works and amulets.

====

At least some of what people were so upset about is that Eybshutz was deliberately distorting the Talmud to ‘promote’ his own view of a universal ‘one world’ religion that had a lot of similarity with large parts of xtian theology.

Moshe Hagiz was so upset by what Eybshutz was doing to the text of the Talmud, he formulated a request to have the Prague Edition burnt… Not something any rabbi would suggest in that era of mass Jewish ‘book burnings’, without some very weighty deliberation.

One more snippet, but please go and read the whole thing, to get more of a feel for just how ‘anti-Jewish’ some of Eybshutz’s amendments and additions to the Talmud were:

Eibeschütz believed that there was no final, fixed, and canonized text of the Talmud;…

Eibeschütz put himself in the shoes of the ancient sages and saw himself not as expurgating but rather as creating the text of the Talmud.

====

Remember, Sadducee-Karaites and xtians both shared a hatred of the Talmud, the Oral Law.

And that’s still going strong today, as the following screenshot shows:

====

Am I saying Eybshutz was a Karaite?

No – but he was a Sabbatean, that’s much for sure.

And the Sabbatean-Frankists certainly carried on and amplified the ‘anti Torah Jews and Torah’ attitude of the Sadduccee-Karaites, and the other ancient Jewish-xtian-gnostic groups that are all hidden in the mist, still.

====

So, I decided to try and pin-down Eybshutz’s links to the xtians a bit more, and to also start taking a closer look at his illustrious forbears, to see if I could figure out more of these links.

In the process of doing that, I came across this article on the xtian ‘Israel Today’ website:

Four Rabbis Find Yeshua (Jesus) – Israel Today

Snippet:

The first event that we know about happened in a small town in southern Poland, Pinczow (near Krakow), around the year 1680. Four well-known rabbis – Rabbi Krokeffer and Rabbi Sender, both from what is now the Czech Republic, and Rabbi Chaija Chajon from Turkey met with the Chief Rabbi of Pinczow, interestingly called by his people “Rabbi Megalleh Amukkoth” (the one who discovers deep mysteries).

This whole article is about how the xtians basically used a bunch of corrupt ‘rabbis’, starting in the 17th century, to launch what you can basically call the ‘Jews for Jesus’ idea.

You can read all about it HERE.

(Warning: puke bag mandatory.)

====

I’ve covered a lot of what you’ll learn there previously, but before we get back to the Megaleh Amukot’s xtian leanings, I just wanted to point out a few more things about all the ‘Jews for Jesus’ missionary activity currently going on in Israel.

Go HERE to read about the CMJ – going since 1809, and one of the earliest ‘xtian zionist’ organisations of modern times.

Go HERE to read about the ‘Messianic Jewish’ community currently hanging out in Talpiot’s Industrial area, snippet:

The current premise of the congregation is in the Talpiot industrial area. They own the fifth floor of a large building on Yad Charutzim 4. 

Go HERE to read about their ‘brand new’ congregation in Mevasseret Zion.

And go HERE to read the blog of Tuvia Pollack, a ‘4th generation’ Jewish believer in Yoshki who lives in Jerusalem.

And of course, all this is just the tip of the iceberg of all the ‘Jews for Jesus’ stuff still going on in the State of Israel.

====

They like to pretend there are no missionaries here, that it’s all ‘illegal’ for missionaries to live here, and to preach here and to convert Jews here – but of course, they are lying.

Two of my three neighbors in Jerusalem are families of xtian missionaries. One of them even moved here at the height of the Corona lockdowns, when the State of Israel wasn’t letting real Jews into the country….

Again, all these are clues as to who is really controlling the State of Israel.

Back to that weird snippet from the ‘4 rabbis find Yoshki’ article, above.

The first event that we know about happened in a small town in southern Poland, Pinczow (near Krakow), around the year 1680. Four well-known rabbis – Rabbi Krokeffer and Rabbi Sender, both from what is now the Czech Republic, and Rabbi Chaija Chajon from Turkey met with the Chief Rabbi of Pinczow, interestingly called by his people “Rabbi Megalleh Amukkoth”.

====

The first thing to notice is that the timing is totally wrong for the Megaleh Amukot, who died in 1633 – some 50 years before this meeting of ‘Jews for Yoshki’ is meant to have happened.

So I was about to discard this as a credible source…. until I remembered I’d seen something similar in THIS piece by reputable orthodox Jewish historian, Sid Leiman:

RABBI JONATHAN EIBESCHUETZ AND THE ALLEGED JEWISH-CHRISTIAN SECT IN EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY AMSTERDAM

This screenshot is from page 6, go check it out for yourself:

====

This statement appears there word-for-word.

Here’s a snippet of the deeper story behind all this:

In 1772, a Jew from Amsterdam named Simon approached Pastor Burgmann of the Lutheran Church in London, seeking, as it were, spiritual asylum. He was knowledgeable in matters Christian and claimed that he had been baptized in Amsterdam by a secret society of Jewish Christians who were outwardly Jewish but secretly Christian.

Simon arranged for Burgmann to enter into correspondence with that secret society. The possibility that an entire group of Jews had converted to Christianity in one fell swoop intrigued Burgmann.

Ultimately, Burgmann referred the matter to the Moravian Brethren, an evangelical and pietistic Protestant community with an office in London.

====

Readers with sharp memories will remember that we already make the link between the ‘Bad Baal Shem’ of London, (and Jacob Frank’s first father-in-law, Dr Falk, and the Moravian Brethren, or Brotherhood, in THIS post.

Here’s a pertinent snippet:

Falk – and others – fused together the already warped Sabbatean theosophy with high-level Freemasonry rites.

One of the people Falk was in close contact with at this time was Count Nicolai Zinzendorf, who was another of these ‘two-faced’ people.

In one world, he was an upstanding xtian missionary, church leader, and xtian ‘zionist’, who had a big eye on getting Jews to convert….

Then in the other world, he was the leader of an occult group called the Moravian Brotherhood, who wanted to totally uproot society and get rid of all class structures. Zinzendorf’s Brotherhood had branches in Holland and in London, as well as in Moravia.

Moravia was the stamping ground of the Sabbatean Jonathan Eybshutz, and later became a stronghold of the Frankists who retained their Sabbatean-Frankist beliefs, whilst remaining the Jewish community. As we will discover, that was no coincidence.

==

In the 1750s, Zinzendorf developed a new, secret doctrine for ‘initiates’ to the top secret ‘German Pilgrim Section’ of his Brotherhood, which basically copied the worst antinomian Sabbatian practises of breaking every sexual taboo mandated by the Torah.

====

You see, how every new piece of information we dig up only serves to confirm the theory?

That’s usually a pretty good sign you are travelling in the right direction, if all the new pieces ‘fit’ the puzzle – and provide solutions for more of the mysteries.

Anyway, back to the first-hand account of how these more recent ‘Jews for Jesus’ apparently got started in the basement of the Megaleh Amukot’s basement, on the day of Tisha B’av.

Snippet:

Then R. Megalle Amukkoth stood up, took the 3 men by the hand and said unto them: “Strengthen yourselves ye men of
Israel, let us not this day mourn, but rejoice for the Lord hath spoken unto us and will redeem us.”

All these 4 men felt a certain joy and called directly upon the name of the Saviour and went in that moment into the cellar where R. Megalle Amukkoth had his מקוה .

There were always 3 witnesses as one of them plunged himself into the water, till after this manner they were baptized….

Here the Church of Christ took its beginning in Israel, without one of these men having ever seen the New Testament.

====

I’m just going to quote more snippets of this firsthand account of what appears to have been going on in this Jewish-Xtian community centred around the Megaleh Amukot, because the information is astounding:

The baptized were diligent in baptizing and converting their relations and friends, and to receive them into the community of Christ, so that 100 were baptized... They kept to the ceremonial law. Every day more were baptized on their belief of the chief articles of the Christian faith, and hereby it remained a long time.

Particularly in Prague, where so many ראשי ישיבות and many בחורים were, the Holy Ghost wrought powerfully and an uncommon blessing was spread abroad.

====

Yea, even in Prague and Moravia this pestilence [of these ‘true believers’ being persecuted by the Jewish community] got an ascendency.

They were persecuted, but the Brethren also suffered by it, because they were remarked as having a particular walk and fellowship together, therefore the Jews believed that they were also Sabsazebitem [Sabbateans].

====

This next snippet is mind-blowing:

It is still to be observed that Rabbi Chayim Ashkenaas, grandfather of our Baruch and Simon, and who was then a youth and afterwards Chief Rabbi of Kreutz in Hungary, and Rabbi Meir Eisenstadt, a friend of the former who was afterwards Chief Rabbi of Eisenstadt, where both of them were afterwards great blessing.

These youths were rescued from the Sabsazebitem and converted to the word of life, and afterwards brought many souls in Hungary to the true faith.

====

Meir Eisenstadt – the Meir Panim – was a known Sabbatean, whose brother was Sabbatean false prophet Mordechai Mokiach.

The Meir Panim was also one of the main teachers of Jonathan Eybshutz.

Back to the text.

R. Megalle Amukkoth in Pintschoff had much blessing in his labor, but did not live long.

At his death (as is known to all the Jews), he said that a child should be born in his family whose name would be יהונתן .
He would bring much salvation to Israel…

But there was a grandson of R. Megalle Amukkoth whose name was Rabbi Nathan. He was in Prague at the ישיבה .His wife was with child in Pintschoff…. But it came to pass that this Rabbi Nathan was converted in Prague, and as soon as he heard of the death of his grandfather and his prophecy, he returned home.

But it came to pass that when he came to Dresden in an inn where was at the same time a real servant of our Saviour, a preacher whose name was Mr. Meysinger.

Rabbi Nathan opened to him the whole secret, persuaded him to go with him to Pintschoff, and in case his wife should be delivered of a son, that he would after the circumcision baptize him. This was resolved.

They went to Pintschoff. A son was born, was circumcised, and baptized by the above preacher and called יהונתן .

====

This baptised son of R’Natan, the grandson of the Megaleh Amukot, is none other than Jonathan Eybshutz.

Back to the text:

By the endeavours of his Brethren and other circumstances, he [R’ Natan] was called to be Chief Rabbi in Eybeschuetz in Moravia. He accepted the call, sent his family before him, but he died on the road in Poland.

The mother and the boy were very poor in Eybeschuetz. But as the boy was very forward in his understanding, the mother resolved to bring him to Prague to study the Talmud. And to the astonishment of the Jews, he was so very forward that he was able to deliver a very acute דרשה to the Jews in the public synagogue when he was in his 10th year.

All the Jews with one voice said: This is the boy of whom R. Megalle Amukkoth prophesied.

The Jesuits sought to entrap him, but a divine providence watched over him.

At length the Brethren began to converse with him, to lay before him the word of God. The Holy Ghost was active. The Brethren prayed earnestly to our Saviour for him, and they at last found him in his 14th year in such a disposition that they could make it known to him that he was baptized.

====

[B]efore we treat the present state of the Church of Israel, we must tell how Rabbi Jonathan was appointed and inducted as a teacher and preacher in Israel.

You will easily conceive why Rabbi Jonathan was called to be Chief Rabbi of Hamburg, viz. because his labour was much blessed there to many souls, who were converted and who believed that he would have much more blessing in his old age, but in vain.

Satan, who guided the pen of Rabbi Emden, did much mischief therewith.

====

After reams and reams of more stuff about how Eybshutz learnt the Lutheran creed, and started baptizing people all over the place – God forbid!!! – we get to this strange segment:

Our Brethren look upon the Society [to convert Jews] established in London as a work of Grace… 

(They then mention the edict of the King of Prussia by which all the Jews who are not worth 1000 Dollars each should
leave his new acquired territory in Poland.

In this part of Poland are 39 Jewish Congregations out of which near 2000 poor Jews will be expelled….Therefore, it is the best time to pay attention to them.)

Our thought was that this godly Society should turn particularly to the Jews in new Prussia, make an address to them.
We believe that it would be with little trouble that we could send 100 or 200 families to the new colonies in America. Propose it to the Society…. 

These Jews have still some months respite. They believe that they shall by means of the Jews here and at London by
means of the Prince of Orange and the King of England to effect something.

The Jew congregation in Berlin have wrote about it to a certain Jew called Frank in London.

The Jews have collected 100,000 gulden to this end. 

====

This sounds like a clear reference to Jacob Frank, son-in-law of the Bad Baal Shem of London, who is known to have had links with the Moravian Brotherhood.

Wow, so much new information to try and assimilate here.

There’s a lot more to dig into, but I will stop here for now, and try to pick this up again in the next post, with God’s help.
