THE FOLLOWING WAS EXCERPTED FROM THE ARTICLE;

It’s widely acknowledged that Jesus was a thoroughly practicing Jew throughout his life. Anglican Priest Bruce Chilton expressed that conclusion explicitly and concisely in his book Rabbi Jesus: “It became clear to me that everything Jesus did was as a Jew, for Jews, and about Jews.”

But what about Paul, the Apostle to the Gentiles? It’s generally accepted that Paul was the true founder of a new religion called Christianity. Biblical scholar Gerd Ludemann, author of several books about Jesus and Paul including Paul: Founder of Christianity, affirms that “Without Paul there would be no church and no Christianity.” Ludemann adds, “He’s the most decisive person that shaped Christianity as it developed. Without Paul we would have had reformed Judaism… but no Christianity.”

Paul converted Jews and then Gentiles to Jewish Christianity, basing these conversions on his belief in the teachings, resurrection, and divinity of Jesus. But powerful evidence within “Acts of the Apostles,” the book of the New Testament that chronicles Paul’s mission, reveals that Paul, like Jesus, remained a dedicated Jew until his execution. In fact, if Paul had simply stated that he was no longer a Jew but the leader of a new religion, he would not have been imprisoned or executed.

During Paul’s last visit to Jerusalem, his appearance and teachings in the Temple in Jerusalem set off a disturbance in which some Jews rioted against him (Acts 21:26-28). He was then charged with blasphemy by the Sanhedrin and would have to stand trial before the Jewish authorities–and face a possible death sentence. The Sanhedrin was able to indict Paul and put him on trial by the special privilege that the Romans gave the Jews. Judaism was a protected religion under the Roman Empire in the time of Jesus and Paul. Jews had their own King (Herod the Great, Herod Antipas, and Herod Agrippa). But more important, the Jewish leadership was invested with the right to rule over Jewish affairs. They could bring charges against Jews who violated Jewish laws or who were deemed blasphemous or heretical. That power is why the Sanhedrin was able to indict Jesus. It also explains why the Sanhedrin was able to authorize Paul’s persecutory frenzy to chain and drag back to Jerusalem Jewish followers of Jesus in synagogues as distant as Damascus (Acts 8:3; Acts 9: 1, 2). Although the Sanhedrin could bring charges against Jews and even set the punishment, only the Romans could execute (although that’s not entirely clear since some violators of Jewish law were stoned to death by Jews).

The special status of Jews was first stated in an edict by the Roman Emperor Caesar Augustus in 1 BCE and reaffirmed by Emperor Claudius Augustus in 41 CE:

Edict of Roman Emperor Caesar Augustus on Jewish Rights, 1 BCE

Caesar Augustus, pontifex maximus, holding the tribunician power, proclaims: Since the nation of the Jews and Hyrcanus, their high priest, have been found grateful to the people of the Romans,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Edict of Roman Emperor Claudius Augustus on Jewish Rights, 41 CE

Tiberius Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, pontifex maximus, holding the tribunician power, proclaims: …Therefore it is right that also the Jews, who are in all the world under us, shall maintain their ancestral customs without hindrance and to them I now also command to use this my kindness rather reasonably and not to despise the religious rites of the other nations, but to observe their own laws.

Paul chose to go to his death as a Jew. Why?………………………………

Paul’s vision was to make his brand of Judaism–with the recognition of Jesus as the Jewish Messiah–a world religion easily accessible to everyone. He never surrendered that passion. But after his death the accelerating conversion of Gentiles to a movement that began as Jewish Christianity became increasingly distanced from Judaism–and a new religion was launched.

Nevertheless, an understanding of the deep connection to Judaism held by the founders of Christianity should highlight the common ground of Judaism and Christianity and pave the way to reconciliation between the two faiths.

SOME OF MY COMMENTS …

From MT SINAI where the world recognized that something concerning the JEWS was happening ,something earth shattering,THE WORLD STOOD STILL,NOT A BIRD CHIRPED,NOT A WAVE ON THE SHORES,NOT A FLY MOVED.
A cloud covered the SINAI
A MAN NAMED MOSES was receiving THE LAWS FROM GD.
THE ‘ONE G-D’ proclaimed to 3 million Jews at the time that’MOSES IS THE PROPHET OF PROPHETS AND MOSES IS YOUR TEACHER,LISTEN TO MOSES.”I” am your GD WHO TOOK YOU OUT OF EGYPT.There is none other then ‘ME’ none along side me,’I’ am not of flesh,’I’ ALONE’ HAVE NONE OTHER THEN ME BEFORE YOU AND LISTEN TO MOSES.

Then comes along a meaningless irrelevent man 1700 years later, along with countless other irrelevent men hung on a cross who called themselves messiahs and gods.

First this jesux is a messiah, then he is a son of a god then he is a god and still failing in all 3 positions some people said ”well he has to come back a second time to finish the job”.

By believing this story,
you the believer is stating blatantly that
‘THE ONE G-D AT MT SINAI LIED AND MADE A MISTAKE FORGETTING HE HAD A SON? EMBARRASING HIS SON BY DECLARING MOSES AS THE TEACHER OF ISRAEL?

LISTEN TO ME….
Jews survived 1700 years before jesux.
Since jesus the world has been in constant turmoil and wars.Jews have nevcer survived as cruel a death as from the hands of the jesux followers of the churches.

G-D DOES NOT LIE NOR CHANGE HIS MIND NOT MAKE MISTAKES.
‘THE ONE G-D’ SAID ”I WILL NEVER FORGET YOU NOR GIVE YOU UP AS A MOTHER MAY GIVE UP HER CHILD. YOU ISRAEL IS MY SPECIAL NATION.

AND SO ISRAEL REMAINS AND ALL THE HATERS OF ISRAEL HAVE BECOME IMPOTENT, EMPTY OR DISSAPPEARED ENTIRELY.
