Many Jews believed in Him

One of the major errors of religious people, is to blame the death of Jesus on the Jewish people. Still the Bible confirms that many Jews believed in Him.

jesus1
Faith in Jesus is to belive in His death and ressurection, and to obey His commands.

Often you can hear claimed to be Christians,say they don’t support the state of Israel, because the Jews don’t believe in Jesus.

And some people will even say that the Jews “rejected Jesus”, and therefore “god” abandoned them.

The Bible clearly confirms that many of his fellow Jews believed that He was the Messiah.  His supporters among the Jews were so many, that the High priest and religious authorities were worried.

Here are some examples, from the gospel according to John.
    

  John 7:31
Still, many in the crowd believed in him. They said, ‘When the Messiah comes, will he perform more signs than this man?

John 8:30
Even as he spoke, many believed in him.

John: 11:45.

Therefore many of the Jews who had come to visit Mary, and had seen what Jesus did, believed in him.

John 12:42
Yet at the same time many even among the leaders believed in him. But because of the Pharisees they would not openly acknowledge their faith for fear they would be put out of the synagogue;

There are many people, who use the Bible for whatever purpose. Among them, people who use the name of Jesus to promote some kind of religious ideology. Like the replacement theology, the idea that all the promises to the Jewish people got transferred to the Church, because of the unbelief of “the Jews”. This is a major error, that leads to death and destruction.  The very prof that these false teachers are wrong, is the existence of Messianic Jews. People from the house of Israel who believe that Yeshua (Jesus) is the Messiah.  They follow the Biblical Jewish calendar, the same the Messiah followed.  They celebrate the sabbath from Friday evening onwards, and joint non-believing Israelis in taking a day off during the Biblical feats.

Judaism can never be a false religion. Following a false “Christ” can. A “Jesus” who is not upholding his eternal promises to the people of Israel, is a typical antichrist. A false Messiah, who leads people astray and towards the abyss.  Judaism without acknowledging the true Messiah, is an incomplete faith system. The moment any Jew, acknowledge that Yeshua is the Messiah, Messianic Judaism has become complete.  The person is still of Jewish origin, and most likely a citizen of the state of Israel. But he has become Messianim, a follower of the Son of God.

Be sure you have not been deceived to follow a false Messiah.

If you need anyone to blame for the death of Jesus, blame me.  My sins drove Him to the cross. He died in my place.

  1. Her is another example
    «On the next day, Paul went in with us to Jacob; all the elders were present. After greeting them, he reported to them in detail what God had done among the Gentiles through his service. And when they heard, they began glorifying God. They said, “You see, brother, how many MYRIADS there are among the Jewish people who have believed—and they are all zealous for the Torah.»

  2. There is no such thing as “Replacement Theology.”

    The Gentiles have been grafted into Israel, and now they are sharers together in the promises of God in Jesus Christ.

    The most convincing passage of God’s sovereign plan to have one people of God is found in Ephesians 3.

    Eph 3:6
    “This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus.”

    1. Dear Armorrcc.

      Shalom and love in Jesus.

      My reply:

      You and your Pope are fathers of lies. Even the basic Biblical truth, is rejected by the Roman Catholic Church.

      To claim that the promises of Zion is a promise to all Christian, is the mother of all religious lies of the papacy. Conviently, you mix up the promise of a land to the sons of Jacob, with the promise of salvation. This is the core base of antisemtitism in the name of “Christ”.

    1. Dear Todd.

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      You asked:

      Aren’t all those who together share in the promise in Christ called the Church.

      My reply:

      The first time Church is mentioned, is in Antioch. It literally means “she who prepare her self to go with the gospel”. Ecclesia. “To share in the promise” is a phrase used by those who do not want the Jews to have their own state, or who claim that the state of Israel is of no prophetic significanse, as a promised fullflled to the Jewish people. A promise given to the Jews, more than 1.000 years before the word “Church” was used. If you reject that this promise is given to the sons of Jacob, you are proclaiming that “god can not be trusted”. And some do this absurd proclamation in the name of “Christ”.

  3. It is all clear where Paul show that the Church is Israel, the very seed of Abraham? Galatians 3:7-29

    Please read all of Chapter 3

    1. Dear Armorrcc

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      Galatians 3: 16-17.

      The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. Scripture does not say ‘and to seeds’, meaning many people, but ‘and to your seed’, meaning one person, who is Christ. What I mean is this: the law, introduced 430 years later, does not set aside the covenant previously established by God and thus do away with the promise.

      (end of scripure).

      This verse is misused by false Christians like you, to dispute, renounce and delegitimaize the state of Israel. You litterally claim that the promise of the land, today is valid only for belivers in “Christ”. This promise in not valid for the Jews. The Jews are not only occupying the so-called “West bank”, and East Jerusalem. But the whole area protected by the Government of Isael.

      But if you read carefully. Not even the Law of Moses can do away with this promise to the sons of Jacob. Even less, the New Covenant, which has been given to the same people, the House of Israel and the House of Judah.

      If you read the Bible as Satan reads the scriptures, you can start claiming that “Christ is the son of Abraham”, and therefor the Messiah alone, has been granted the right to live here. Singular, one person. Wrong. What is the truth? Israel is THE land of God. He is the owner. But a nation, is always populated in plural. By the subjects of the promise, given 1.000 years before a single Christian walked on the face of the Earth. This is a promise given to the sons of Jacob. If you believe otherwise, you are totally disconnected.

      The truth is that SALVATION is granted throug Jesus the Messiah. Not thrugh faith in Abraham. This is the message underlined in Pauls letter to the Galatians.

  4. Jeremiah 31:31-34 is clear:

    Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

    So, who is this New Covenant with?

    “Israel after the flesh” (i.e., modern Jews) may be grafted in again in the same way Gentiles are grafted in to the tree of spiritual Israel: repentance, faith, and baptism.

    1. Dear Armorrcc

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      Are you not able to answer your own question?

      You just quoted the biblical passage, that gave you the answer?

      But you do not believe in what you just read. You and your pope twist and destort the Word of God. The Church is not the House of Israel. The Church is not the House of Judah. Have never been, and will never be.

      Whom the Prophet Jeremiah talk to, are the two seperated kingdoms, existing 800-700. B.C. The gospel is written by Jews, for the Jews, and the Messiah is eventually a Jew. Regadless of the opinion of the Vatican priesthood. Non-Jews, or gentiles can be parttakers of the New Covement. But it was not written for them. Nor will the Roman Catholic Church be able to change the truth, without objections. What you present is usurped authority, the base of what we call replacement theology.

  5. Yes God has promised Land to the Israelites.

    And God has delivered on those promises:

    Joshua 21:43-45
    And the Lord gave unto Israel all the land which he sware to give unto their fathers; and they possessed it, and dwelt therein. And the Lord gave them rest round about, according to all that he sware unto their fathers: and there stood not a man of all their enemies before them; the Lord delivered all their enemies into their hand. There failed not ought of any good thing which the Lord had spoken unto the house of Israel; all came to pass.

    1 Kings 8:56
    Blessed be the Lord, that hath given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that he promised: there hath not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant.

    Nehemiah 9:7-8
    Thou art the Lord the God, who didst choose Abram, and broughtest him forth out of Ur of the Chaldees, and gavest him the name of Abraham; And foundest his heart faithful before Thee, and madest a covenant with him to give the land of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Jebusites, and the Girgashites, to give it, I say, to his seed, and hast performed Thy words; for Thou art righteous.

    God already gave the land to the Israelites; but their keeping it was a matter of their obedience.

    Deuteronomy 28:58…64
    If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book… the Lord shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone.

    1. Dear Armorrcc

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      You wrote:

      God already gave the land to the Israelites; but their keeping it was a matter of their obedience.

      My reply:

      Now, you are at least quoting the correct scriptures. But your definition of “Israelites” is stil false. You will agree that the land was gifted to the House of Jacob, not Christians. But you will still claim thay todays “Israelites”, are not the returned tribes, the citizens of the state of Israel. You will claim that Roman Catholics are the true Israelits, and that the land belong to the Pope and his subjects.

      Till you admit you are wrong, you will comntinue to serve Satan and spread antisemitic lies. Keep in mind, that I loved you enough to tell you the truth.

  6. No need to falsly accuse me of serving Satan and spreading lies. Catholics are not antisemitic. If you know the Catholic Church you will realise we love our older Jewish brothers very much and pray for them all the time.

    1. Dear Armorrcc

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      You can claim what you want. Truth hurts. The Pope accuse the state of Israel of occupying “Palestinian land”. You and the Pope claim you are the true Israliites. What you promote is a pack of antisemitic lies. You do not only defame the Jewish people. You also defame Biblical Christianity day and night. If you do not repent, you will perish.
