Let’s learn more about these ‘Jewish-Christians’, and see how they’ve been shaping history behind the scenes.
(You can read Part 1 HERE.)
First, a note on the sources for this information.
Much of it has been gathered together in a book called ‘The Secret Legacy of Jesus: The Judaic Teachings That Passed From James the Just to the Founding Fathers’, written by Lutheran Minister and adjunct Professor of world religions at Penn State, Jeffrey Butz.
In turn, one of the main places where Butz got his info was from a work written by ‘Hebrew Christian’ Hugh Schonfield, called The History of Jewish Christianity, (1937).
You can read that HERE.
Before we continue, I went to check out ‘Hugh Schonfield’ on geni, to see who he’s related to.
I hit the motherlode.
HERE is where you can see his profile on geni.
If you keep clicking back on his mother’s side, you get to a whole bunch of ‘Cohens’, ‘Boas’s’ and ‘Goldschmidts’.
Because I’ve been eating and sleeping these family trees for two years, I can tell you that the ‘Boas’ family were very wealthy parnessim in Amsterdam; they were known Sabbateans – and they were also the supporters of the Goldschmidt bankers in London, and the ‘bad Baal Shem’ of London, Dr Samuel Chaim Falk.
Here’s the relevant snippet from THIS post:
Falk’s main financial backers in Amsterdam were the wealthy Sabbatean ‘Boas’ family – now conveniently scrubbed out of Jewish history (possibly because Frank’s second wife may have been a ‘Boas’.)
Falk’s main financial backers in London were the Goldschmidt banker-brothers, and he also hangs out with the ‘Chief Rabbi’ David Tebele Schiff.
Falk is the guy who began the ‘Order of the Golden Dawn’, and who also encouraged the creation of a bunch more secret societies like the Asiatic Brotherhood – all practising black magic, and preaching a creed of ‘universalism’.
Here’s another pertinent snippet:
Falk spent the last 5 years of his life on developing a ‘Judeo-Christian Freemasonry’, where Jews wouldn’t be pressured to convert to Christianity.
It looks like this was the ‘Egyptian Rites Freemasonry’ that was later ‘marketed’, if you can call it that, by Falk’s protege Cagliostro (aka Joseph Balsamo from Italy, who may well have been another Sabian-Sabbatean, even before he met Falk.)….
Remember, Frank was the son-in-law of ‘Dr Falk’, and the putative father of Falk’s six grand-daughters – all of whom married back into the ‘orthodox’ Jewish community of secret Sabbateans….
Defacto, Falk created a ‘new mystical religion, which would…transcend all sectarian divisions.”
OK, let’s get back to ‘Hebrew Christian’ Hugh Schonfield’s family tree.
If you trace it back, you see that he descends from the ‘who’s who’ of court Jews and Sabbatean-Frankists from the last 400 years, who I ‘ve been writing about here for months.
Gluckel of Hameln is in there; there are ‘Schwabs’ in there; there are tons of ‘Goldschmidts‘ and ‘Bacharachs’ in there, there are ‘Spiras’ and ‘Hildesheimers‘ in there.
And there are also ‘Rothschilds’ in there – the real family tree, not all the fakes ones I’ve been ploughing through the last few months.
If you go HERE, and click ‘direct descendants’ mode on geni, it will show you how the original surname of the Rothschild family was BACHARACH.
It will also show you that the Rothschild bankers ‘descend’ from the famous court Jew, Josel of Rosheim (Loanz).
We came across ‘Josel of Rosheim’ recently on the blog, here:
Snippet from there:
We know ‘Hayyim Samuel Jacob Falk’ well.
He’s the demon-commanding, black-magic practising, Order of the Golden Dawn-founding father-in-law of false messiah Jacob Frank….
And ‘Eliyahu the Baal Shem of Worms’ – aka Eliyahu Loanz – is also related to another famous tax-collecting Court Jew, namely Josel of Rosheim.
(Josel of Rosheim’s family were also accused of performing satanic ritual murders.… All this is starting to hit very close to home, isn’t it?)
This is the same family that ‘the Rothschilds’ descend from.
This is the same family that ‘Hebrew Christian’ Hugh Schonfield descends from.
And Hugh Schonfield is the guy who wrote a book explaining the true history of ‘Jewish Christians’, over the last 2,000 years.
You see how all this hangs together more and more, the more facts we uncover?
So now, let’s quote a little from Hugh Schonfield’s book, before I go back into ‘summing up Jewish-Christian history’ mode.
Gentile Christianity has been intelligibly enough preoccupied with its own rise to power and influence, and in the first flush of that power it sought by anathema, suppression and wholesale destruction of documents to overthrow the witness of Jewish Christianity…. Far from becoming a futile anachronism, its spirit and human activity has persisted until the present day, and is even now undergoing a revival on a scale unknown since apostolic times.
Jewish Christianity has always existed to supply that of which the Church has stood in need — the Messianic vision…. if the true preaching of the Kingdom of God had been carried out according to the Gospel injunction, the horrors of warfare would have long since ceased between so-called Christian countries. The only diplomatic corps that Europe would require would be “ambassadors for Christ.”
Plain English: ‘Jewish Christianity’ has always existed, despite the persecution of the Catholic Church, and it’s follower consider it to be the ‘authentic’ version of xtianity.
And the guy who is writing its history is descended from all those ‘court Jews’ with strange xtian links, and ties to other false messiahs like Shabtai Tzvi / SHACH and Jacob Frank, who in turn have been clearly linked to the Freemasons and other secret societies on this blog.
Now, it’s time to fill in a bit more ‘Jewish-Christian’ history.
The following outline follows that set out in Butz’s book.
In 313 CE, Constantine’s ‘Edict of Milan’ sets the scene to start treating ‘mainstream’ – i.e. gentile / pagan – xtianity more kindly.
At the same time, that means that the Jewish-Christian groups like the Ebionites, and the ‘breakaway’, more gnostic Elkecaites, start to be persecuted very seriously, to stamp out their ‘heresy’.
One Elkecaite who has a Jewish father and Persian mother, Mani, moves up to the more religiously tolerant Sassanid empire of the Persians, and creates another version of so-called ‘Jewish-xtianity’ but with a way more pronounced, devil-worshipping Gnostic creed.
This becomes known as ‘Manicheanism’ – and before Islam shows up, is a serious rival to the Catholic and Byzantine churches, in terms of how many adherents it has.
Butz writes on page 256 that it was:
‘likely that the Desposyni [i.e. Jesus’ blood relatives] were leaders of the Elkesaites in Mesopotamia’, and in contact with Mani.
Conventional history says all these Jewish-xtian groups including the Ebionites and Elkecaites ‘disappear’.
But, there are traces of the Ebionites in Saudi Arabia still, even in the 11th and 12th centuries.
And the xtian-gnostic groups who don’t believe that Yoshki was fully divine are said to have ‘Arian tendencies’.
Take note of that term: Arian.
In the meantime, these evolving Jewish-xtian groups start to organise themselves more like a ‘secret society’, thanks in part to all the persecution.
The Manicheans, for example, now divide into the elite ‘Elect’ – who know all the secrets – and the ‘Listeners’.
The ‘Elect’ are:
‘[E]ntrusted with the furthering of Mani’s mission, and they were bound to a strict ascetism including vegetarianism and celibacy’.
(Just to confuse us all more, sometimes these Manicheans are also known as ‘Mandeans’, and also as ‘Sabians’.)
In the meantime, many of these underground Jewish-xtians seem to migrate further North, particularly settling in the South of France.
Butz writes that there is a Jewish state in that area at that time, called ‘Septimania’.
Personally, this whole idea needs a lot of double-checking, going forward, because this is exactly the same period of time that ‘Khazaria’ had a lot of renegade (Sadducee / Karaite) Jews from Babylonia move up, as we covered in previous posts HERE and HERE and HERE.
So either the same sort of thing happened twice, in both ‘Septimania’ and ‘Khazar’, or Septimania is being used as a historical decoy.
Point is, the ‘Jewish-xtians’ were still going strong.
And over the next few centuries, Manicheanism (the more gnostic version of ‘Jewish-Christianity) starts to ‘morph’ again, into three specific movements, called:
The PAULICIANS – based out of Armenia, around the 6th century CE.
The MESSALIANS (also known as Euchites) – based in and around Mesopotamia, from the 4th century on
The BOGOMILS – began around the 10th century, and quickly spread throughout much of Europe.
This snippet is from HERE:
Bogomilism was a Christian neo-Gnostic or dualist sect founded in the First Bulgarian Empire by the priest Bogomil during the reign of Tsar Peter I in the 10th century….
The Bogomils called for a return to what they considered to be early spiritual teaching, rejecting the ecclesiastical hierarchy.
Their primary political tendencies were resistance to the state and church authorities. This helped the movement spread quickly in the Balkans, gradually expanding throughout the Byzantine Empire and later reaching Kievan Rus’, Bosnia, Dalmatia, Serbia, Italy, and France (Cathars).
They did not use the Christian cross, nor build churches, as they revered their [own bodies] and considered their body to be the temple. This gave rise to many forms of practice to cleanse oneself through purging, fasting, celebrating and dancing.
Meanwhile, this snippet from HERE shows how more of the evil practices that came to be the hallmarks of these devil-worshipping ‘Jewish-Christian’ sects were being rumoured, even a thousand years ago:
Michael Psellos, a Byzantine monk, accused Bogomils and Euchites of orgiastic practices such as incest and homosexuality.
Furthermore, he argued that children born from these promiscuous activities were brought before a Satanic assembly after eight days, offered up to Satan and then cannibalistically eaten…. Euthymios Zigabenos is another source for these accusations.
The idea of these unholy acts can be tracked back to alleged practices of certain Gnostic sects.
Jacob Frank was hanging out with some Bogomils in Podolia / Ukraine.
This snippet comes from a post called ‘False Messiahs’:
The ancient sect of Jewish-Gnostic-Sabians were known to be present and active in the Ukraine / Podolia, at the time that “Frankism” really took off.
“Has’sidism and Frankism… belong to the long chain of heretic sects that goes back to the early Christians and the Gnostics…..from that remote corner of eastern Europe, the forest and mountain country of eastern Galicia and the adjoining Ukraine which saw the last offsprings of gnostic Manicheism and the Bogomils.
There is so much to unpick and sort here, the information can become overwhelming – even for me!
So for the rest of this post, let’s just focus on one area where these underground ‘Jewish-xtian-gnostic’ groups really took off: Northern Italy, and the South of France.
In these areas, the Bogomils influenced a new movement called the ‘CATHARS’, which suddenly appeared out of nowhere in the 11th century.
This snippet comes from HERE:
As Dualists, Cathars believed in two principles, a good god and his evil adversary (much like God and Satan of mainstream Christianity).
The good principle had created everything immaterial (good, permanent, immutable) while the bad principle had created everything material (bad, temporary, perishable).
Cathars called themselves simply Christians; their neighbours distinguished them as “Good Christians”. The Catholic Church called them Albigenses, or less frequently. Cathars.
Before we go on, I want to underline that ‘Good xtian’ thing, because the Cathars called themselves ‘Bon hommes’.
The Ebionites before them called themselves ‘Tobim’, or tovim – good.
And here’s one of those weird hook-ups that kind of makes a very big point, in a very simple way.
On geni, you see that the progenitor of the Goldschmidts and the Rothschilds (and Hugh Schonfield’s ancestor….) is called ‘Joseph de Bonne’ – ‘Joseph the good’. And that he hails from France – the same region as the Cathars.
But here is where we see he has a ‘double identify’:
In this version, Joseph de Bonne is called ‘Joseph HaLevy Goldschmidt Stadthagen’.
And that family tree leads us straight to ‘Jewish rabbinic royalty’, plus a whole bunch more court Jews, including the Oppenheimers.
(I will be unpicking this family tree for months….)
Back to the Cathars.
Here’s another telling snippet about what this Jewish-Christian-Gnostic group actually believed:
[The Cathars] largely regarded men and women as equals, and had no doctrinal objection to contraception, euthanasia or suicide. In some respects the Cathar and Catholic Churches were polar opposites. For example the Cathar Church taught that all non-procreative sex was better than any procreative sex. The Catholic Church taught – as it still teaches – exactly the opposite.
Following their tenet, Catholics concluded that masturbation was a far greater sin than rape (as mediaeval penitentials confirm). Following their principles, Cathars could deduce that sexual intercourse between man and wife was more culpable than homosexual sex.
Does any of this sound familiar?
Most of the nobles and aristocracy in the South of France become Cathars in the 11th and 12th century.
And most of the people.
So much so, that the Catholic Church was almost totally replaced. Pope Innocent III doesn’t like that – at all! – so he organises a crusade against the Cathars in the South of France, which comes to be known as the Albigensian Crusade.
It began in 1209, lasted 20 years – and killed a million people.
Who else is hanging out in ‘Cathar France’ at this point?
- The Knights Templar
- The Knights Hospitaller
These groups don’t participate in the crusade against the ‘Cathars’.
Interestingly, this is also the same time and place where we find RASHI (1040-1105 CE), and his group of scholars.
Butz claims that RASHI was a frequent and welcome guest at Count Hugo De Payens Court, in Troyes.
That’s a claim that needs more double-checking.
But what IS true, is that Hugo de Payens (1070-1136) was the first Grand Master of the Knights Templar, who set up shop in the Holy Land.
And so we see there is a lot of cross-over with these ‘Jewish-Christian-Gnostics’, and Eretz Yisrael.
In his book, Butz comments on the fact that the Knights Templar effectively become the first ‘multinational corporation’ in the World, and also set up the first real international banking system.
Honestly, I need to do a whole separate post about ‘Knights Templars’ and modern-day freemasonry, because there’s a lot of information to consider.
But let’s sum up the main points, from this post.
- Hugh Schonfield is a ‘Hebrew Christian’, who writes The History of Jewish Christianity, in 1937.
- He’s also related to the Boas, Cohen and Goldschmidt families, known to be a) court Jews, parnassim and b) wealthy supporters of Shabtai Tzvi, Dr Samuel Chaim Falk, and Jacob Frank.
- Gnostic-Jewish-Christianity has been going on for the last 2,000 years, and particularly popped up again in France in the 11th and 12th century, as part of the ‘Cathars’ movement, that was put down by the Catholic Church.
- The Knights Templars also began in France, at the same time that the Cathars was going strong.
- Meanwhile, the Gnostic-Jewish-Christian ‘Bogomils’ had a very strong presence in Kievan-Rus – what is today known as Ukraine – amongst other places.
- False messiah Jacob Frank was apparently in touch with these ‘Bogomils’ in Podolia.
- So many of the ‘court Jews’, including the Rothschilds, appear to be connected to these ‘Jewish-Christian’ groups, who maintained a belief in Yoshki for the last 2,000 years, whilst trying to stay ‘culturally Jewish’.
- The movement of Mani in the 4th century is when the ‘Jewish-Christian’ group called the Elkecaites really started to incorporate more devil-worshipping, ‘dualistic’ beliefs, that basically state there is a ‘good God’ and a ‘bad God’, chas v’halila, and that the ‘bad God’ is the one who created the material world.
- This Gnostic belief system also teaches that ‘releasing’ people from their human body (i.e. killing them….) is the biggest kindest you can do for someone, and the way to achieve spiritual ‘Nirvana’.
- So, instead of blaming the Jews for all the world’s ills, all the anti-semites out there can hopefully now start to understand that it is ‘believers in Christ’ who are really causing so much of the evil in the world, and mamash worshipping the devil. (A person can hope….)
There is still so much to write, not least about how all this ties in with people like Jonathan Eybshutz, and his censorship of the Talmud and gnostic-xtian tendencies.
And also, how it connects back to Dr Falk, and his ‘Order of the Golden Dawn’.
And also, how the Armenian church fits into this – with it’s ‘all seeing eye’ symbolism and connection to the Old City of Jerusalem, and the Templars, and the Armenian convert who lived in Jerusalem at the time of Yoshki, etc, Queen Helene of Adiabene.
And last but not least, where the whole question of ‘Christian Zionism’ and the State of Israel fit into this picture.
I guess we’ll get to all that in due course.
But in the next post, I want to go back to the beginning, to see if we can get a clearer picture of when Yoshki was actually alive, and what else was happening in the Jewish world, at that time.
I think we’ll learn some very interesting things.
