altering the holy word of God—a crime of biblical proportion
The deceivers so hate Jesus that they have re-written the Bible and, because their tampered forgery is in Hebrew, they have gulled many. Masorete Jews altered the Old Testament for a millennium after the Crucifixion in order to dethrone Jesus Christ in their tampered Hebrew forgery.
At the time of Jesus Christ’s Incarnation, there was no complete Hebrew Bible. Ironically the only complete Bible (Old Testament) for the Israelites at the time of Jesus was the Greek Septuagint, a Greek translation authorized and compiled in about 250 B.C. by the 72 rabbis of the Sanhedrin, the official Jewish court.
Long after Christ a “Hebrew Bible” was compiled by the Masoretes, Jewish enemies of Jesus. As late as 1000 A.D., the Masoretes altered their phony “Hebrew Bible” to reflect Judaism’s hatred of Jesus Christ. Need proof? The Dead Sea Scrolls agree with the Septuagint confirming that the “Hebrew Bible” was changed by the rabbis to reflect their hatred of Jesus Christ, His Church, and the New Israel, Christians. The rabbis altered the Word of God to dethrone Jesus, dispute His Virgin Birth, etc. Ironic isn’t it that the Greek is authentic while the Hebrew is not? It is a clever and diabolical trick of the rabbis to pretend otherwise. For the Old Testament, rely on the Septuagint. For an English version, rely on the Douay Rheims, as we do here.
Four lines of evidence confirm that the Septuagint is authentic and the Masoretic “Hebrew Bible” is a post-Christian fraud:
The New Testament quotes the Septuagint, not the Masoretic “Hebrew Bible.” The early Church accepted the Septuagint texts as authentic. The Guns, Lies, and Forgeries article below is compiled by a non-Catholic (Greek Orthodox), but it is a well-written and succinct summary of the problems with the Masoretic texts and the extreme measures that the Israelis have taken to prevent access to the Dead Sea Scrolls because the Dead Sea Scrolls contradict the Masoretic texts in hundreds of verses:
