Which “Torah”?

go directly to memes

Judaism defines 6 components as “Torah”:


  1. “Written Torah” (Torah she bich tav,  תורה שבכתב‎ ), what we call the Old Testament, derided by the rabbis as suitable only for women and children, superseded by the “Oral Torah”;
  2. “Oral Torah” (Torah she beal peh, תורה שבעל פה), even though it was committed to writing in the centuries after Christ, includes the Talmud and even the Kabbalistic books like the Zohar and Sefer Yetzirah. These man-made oral traditions were committed to writing, first as the Mishnah in the  Tannaitic era after the Crucifixion of Our Lord, then additional commentary in Aramaic was added as the Gemara during the Amoraim era (roughly 300-450 A.D.). In Judaism, the man-made opinions in this “Oral Torah” supersede the Word of God in the Written Torah (Bava Metzia 59b);
  3. Aggadah (non-legalistic folklore and fables) and Haggadah (the talmudic, hence anti-Biblical, liturgy for Passover);
  4. Responsa, including the latest rabbinical opinions;
  5. the rabbis themselves; and
  6. the totemic scroll paraded about in the synagogue.


Most (uninformed) Catholics think that “Torah” means the Pentateuch, but that is not so. When the rabbis want to refer to the Pentateuch, they call it “Torah Mosheh” or by the acronym “Tanakh.” Almost always when the rabbis refer to “Torah” without qualification, they are referring to the “Oral Torah” (Talmud and Kabbala).


True support from the Old Testament would lend legitimacy to rabbinical opinions, but a reference to the man-made traditions damned by Jesus (Mark 7:8-9)  de-legitimizes the rabbis opinions in the eyes of Catholics. The rabbis are happy to let listeners mistakenly think the rabbis are claiming wise support from the Old Testament for their diabolical opinions, support that just is not there.


So, in the parlance of Judaism, it is 100% correct to refer to the Talmud as “Torah,” but that is not the Old Testament Word of God. To understand Judaism you must understand how the megalomaniacal rabbis have nullified the Word of God—by switching their “Oral” Torah for the actual Written Torah.


“…the time has come to shatter the myth and explicitly address the most open secret which we all have known for a while now – Haredi [Orthodox] education in its various yeshivas only focuses on one thing, while creating ignorant students on every other front. An important clarification: I am not referring, like secular critics, to the Haredi disregard for subjects such as math, science, English literature, etc…This is a different problem.


“The issue I have is with the fact that the vast majority of yeshivas only teach Talmud and related questions and answers. That’s it.


“What about the Bible? I am not disparaging, Heaven forbid, the importance of the Talmud. Yet for once let’s talk about the religious people who strictly adhere to the mitzvahs (blessed deeds), yet are unfamiliar with the Bible…And this is not an anomaly – this is the norm. The only Biblical verses familiar to yeshiva students are those quoted by Talmud sages, and that’s that. The Bible is seen as a sort of inferior genre that is appropriate for young children (or for women)…”

Time to face haredi secret

by Efrat Shapira-Rosenberg, Ynet News, February 10, 2010



This highlights another rabbinical deception, a deception that has completely gulled “evangelicals.”


By the time of the Incarnation of Jesus Christ, True God and True Man, there was no complete “Hebrew Bible.” Many of the authentic Hebrew texts had been lost. The only complete Old Testament was in Greek, the Septuagint, a completely authentic text authorized and translated by the official Jewish Court, the Sanhedrin, in about 250 B.C.


The much-vaunted “Hebrew Bible” is  a fraud  perpetrated by the Masoretes and was not completed until about 1000 A.D. Sure it is in Hebrew, but it is not original, not authentic.   The mere mention of “Hebrew” is supposed to convince you that the texts are ancient and authentic, but the Masoretic texts are a bowdlerized post-Christian reaction against Jesus Christ, edited to dethrone Him and blaspheme His Mother. A salient example of their agenda is the Masoretes’ substitution of “almah” (young girl) in Isaias 7:14 instead of the original “virgin.” The children of the Father of Lies and Murder at work. Many more details exposing the fraud are found in the Big Lies page on this site.


Judaism is anti-Biblical


“This is not an uncommon impression and one finds it sometimes among Jews as well as Christians - that Judaism is the religion of the Hebrew Bible. It is, of course, a fallacious impression. Judaism is not the religion of the Bible.”

Rabbi Ben Zion Bokser, Judaism and the Christian Predicament, New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1967, p.59, 159


“The Jewish religion as it is today traces its descent, without a break, through all the centuries, from the Pharisees. Their leading ideas and methods found expression in a literature of enormous extent, of which a very great deal is still in existence. The Talmud is the largest and most important single member of that literature, and round it are gathered a number of Midrashim, partly legal (Halachic) and partly works of edification (Haggadic). This literature, in its oldest elements, goes back to a time before the beginning of the Common Era, and comes down into the Middle Ages. Through it all run the lines of thought which were first drawn by the Pharisees, and the study of it is essential for any real understanding of Pharisaism.”

Universal Jewish Encyclopedia, Vol. 3 pg. 474


“Pharisaism became Talmudism, Talmudism became Medieval Rabbinism, and Medieval Rabbinism became Modern Rabbinism. But throughout these changes of name, inevitable adaptation of custom, and adjustment of Law, the spirit of the ancient Pharisee survives unaltered.”

Rabbi Dr. Finkelstein, The Pharisees: The Sociological Background of Their Faith, The Jewish Publication Society of America (1946) p. xxi


“The Talmud is the written form of that which in the time of Jesus, was called the ‘Tradition of the Elders,’ and to which He makes frequent allusions.” *

Michael L. Rodkinson, The History of the Talmud: From The Time Of Its Formation About 200 B. C. Up To The Present Time, Kessinger Publishing, LLC (June 8, 2006), ISBN-13: 978-1428631366, p.70

* “Allusions”? Yes, Jesus damned those man-made traditions for voiding the commandment of God. Mark 7:8-9


“The complex of rabbinically ordained practices ... including most of the rules for the treatment of Scripture itself--do not derive from Scripture at all. Rabbinic Judaism’s initial concern was with the elaboration and refinement of it’s own system. Attaching the system to scripture was secondary. It therefore is misleading to depict rabbinic Judaism primarily as a consequence of an exegetical process or the organic unfolding of Scripture. Rather, rabbinic Judaism began as the work of a small, ambitious, and homogeneous group of pseudo-priests ...By the third century (A.D.) the rabbis expressed their self-conception in the ideology of “Oral Torah” which held that a comprehensive body of teachings and practices (halachot) not included in Scripture had been given by God and through Moses only to the rabbinic establishment.”

Rabbi Jacob Nuesner, Rabbinic Judaism: Structure and System, pp. 31-34



“On the surface, Scripture plays little role in the Mishanaic system, The Mishnah [of the Talmud] rarely cites a verse of Scripture, refers to Scripture as an entity, links its own ideas to those of Scripture, or lays claim to originate in what Scripture has said, even by indirect or remote allusion to a Scriptural verse of teaching... Formally, redactionally, and linguistically the Mishnah stands in splendid isolation from Scripture....the Mishnah constitutes Torah. It too is a statement of revelation, ‘Torah revealed to Moses at Sinai.’ But this part of revelation has come down in a form different from the well-known, written part, the Scripture. This tradition truly deserves the name ‘tradition,’ because for a long time it was handed down orally, not in writing, until given the written formulation now before us in the Mishnah.... Since some of the named authorities in the chain of tradition appear throughout the materials of the Mishnah, the claim is that what these people say comes to them from Sinai through the processes of qabbalah and massoret --handing down ‘traditioning.’ So the reason... that the Mishnah does not cite Scripture is that it does not have to.”

Rabbi Jacob Neusner, The Mishnah: A New Translation. New Haven CT: Yale University Press, 1988. pp. xxxv-xxxvi.


Note the casual admission that both “qabbalah and massoret [the vaunted, but bowdlerized, ‘Hebrew Bible’]” change Scripture through “process,” “traditioning.” In Judaism tradition is not fixed or faithful, but is an ever-changing “process” that is described as “traditioning.” This is why “the latest Responsa and homiletical interpretations of the rabbis” are Torah, hence authoritative in Judaism. Thus, the rabbis “bury Moses” and “defeat God.”


Indeed all this oral “traditioning” is precisely what Jesus fingered as “make void the commandments of God for the traditions of men.” (Mark 7:9). Since the rabbis are free to “alter even the very content of Mosaic revelation” with impunity, we begin to understand why Jesus said, “there is one that accuseth you, Moses” (John 5:45-47).


Do not be misled by a rabbi’s mere mention of the word “Torah.” You must pin him down: “Which ‘Torah’?” Then watch out for the pilpul, mental reservations, and Kol Nidre deceit that will inevitably follow.


pilpul • weapon of the rabbis, lawyers, and other liars


How do the “sages” turn God’s clear commands inside out? How do lawyers deny the plain text of the US Constitution and find non-existent “rights,” such as the “right” to kill unborn babies? By pilpul, a quintessentially Jewish form of lying and self-deception.


What Is Pilpul , And Why On Earth Should I Care About It?

by David Sasha, May 22, 2010, updated May 25, 2011



Pilpul for Beginners

by Gilad Atzmon, Mayt 18, 2020

“Pilpul, as described, is not about understanding of the law and its meaning but about the deliberate miss- interpretation of the law so it fits with one’s core interests.

Shasha points out that ‘even though many contemporary Jews are not observant, pilpul continues to be deployed. Pilpul occurs any time the speaker is committed to ‘prove’ his point regardless of the evidence in front of him. The casuistic aspect of this hair-splitting leads to a labyrinthine form of argument where the speaker blows enough rhetorical smoke to make his interlocutor submit. Reason is not an issue when pilpul takes over: what counts is the establishment of a fixed, immutable point that can never truly be disputed.’

Pilpul is basically a legalistic exercise that is removed from truthfulness, ethical thinking or even logic.”





whatever the rabbis say is “Torah”


Don’t get suckered into one of the oldest rabbinical tricks, the claim that the Talmud is based on “Torah.” A Christian assumes that “Torah” means the Pentateuch, but there’s the trick. In Judaism there are at least FIVE definitions of Torah. Here’s the proof:


Please note four definitions of Torah in the Jewish Encyclopedia’s entry on Torah:


“Originally, in order to maintain the distinction between the written Torah (see written law) and various traditional interpretations, customs and practices, the rabbis forbade the commitment to writing of the additional material. However, when it became too voluminous and chaotic conditions made oral transmission too uncertain, the ban was lifted and the material organized and transcribed in the form of the Mishnah, the Talmud, and other rabbinic works. The rabbis expressed their view that ‘two Torahs’ were given at Sinai, a Written Torah [Torah She Bich Tav, DEFINITION #1] and an Oral Torah [Torah SheBeal Peh, DEFINITION #2] (see oral law) and that at least some of the oral traditions relating to the meaning of basic biblical concepts were as authoritative as the written text (see halakah le-mosheh mi-sinai) In a sense the Oral Torah came to be regarded as more important than the Written Torah inasmuch as the explanations and understanding of the latter depended upon the former. A third meaning of the word ‘Torah’ therefore includes elements of the Oral Torah, which are considered authoritative or deoraita ---‘from the Torah.’ Finally in its broadest sense, the word ‘Torah’ is sometimes used to refer to the entire corpus of Halacha and Aggadah, [DEFINITION #3] Written and Oral, from the Bible up to and including the latest Responsa and homiletical interpretations of the rabbis [DEFINITION #4]....”

The New Encyclopedia of Judaism, Geoffrey Wigoder editor in Chief, New York: New York University Press, 2002, ISBN 0814793996, page 778


Please note a fifth definition of Torah according to the most prolific contemporary rabbi:


“... The rabbi constituted the projection of the divine on earth. Honor was due him more than to the scroll of the Torah, for through his learning and logic he might alter the very content of Mosaic revelation. He was Torah [DEFINITION #5], not merely because he lived by it, but because at his best he constituted as compelling an embodiment of the heavenly model as did a Torah scroll itself.” [Rabbi Jacob Neusner, “The Phenomenon of the Rabbi in Late Antiquity: II The Ritual of ‘Being a Rabbi’ in Later Sasanian Babylonia,” Numen, Vol.17, Fasc. 1., Feb., 1970, pp.3-4]


A sixth definition is the scroll [DEFINITION #6] treated as a totem in the synagogue.


It gets worse because these “Torah” are on an ever-widening trajectory from God. Consider explicit corollaries of the great scholar’s presumption that, because the rabbis are divine, they can “alter the very content of Mosaic revelation.”


“...the Babylonian Talmud represents God in the flesh...” Rabbi Jacob Neusner, Rabbinic Judaism, Minneapolis MN: Augsburg Fortress, 1995. p. 62


“The Holy One, Blessed be He, speaks Torah out of the mouths of all rabbis.” Haggadah 15b



“The Bavli [Babylonian Talmud] has formed the definitive statement of Judaism from the time of its closure to the present day.”

Rabbi Jacob Neusner, quoted by Norman F. Cantor, The Sacred Chain: A History of the Jews, page 112)




“the definitive statement”—not “a series of debates”


Though this 14-part series of childish animations on the Talmud is unmitigated propaganda, the series is useful for an overview of the rabbis’ highly-sanitized and self-promoting narrative, especially the “series of debates” shibboleth. The series is also useful to penetrate the Talmudic jargon with which the rabbis often try to baffle critics of evil talmudic content.





“Apologists assert that the Talmud is only a record of debates (mahloket) between tanna’im and amora’im (the authors of the Talmud Bavli known collectively as Chazal who lived in the early centuries A.D.), and that by focusing on one portion of the controversy and upholding that passage as authoritative, the critic errs, for no legal sanction is given to either side of the ‘debates in the Talmud.’ This is demonstrably false. The Mishnah and subsequent rabbinic amplifications of it comprise the halakha, by which every believing Orthodox Judaic person is bound, down to the most minute and intimate particulars of his or her daily life.


“How Talmudic law is deduced and adjudicated is often an enigma to outsiders, but that it constitutes halakha is certain. The key point is that the appearance of Talmudic indeterminacy does not preclude law-making by majority rabbinic consensus — which is the process by which Talmudic halakha is determined in a given time and particular situation, both in terms of a decision on what constitutes the oral law of the elders as presented in the Mishnah (halakha lemosheh misinai), as well as the subsequent Mitzvot derabanan (rabbinical commandments) found in the Gemara, arising from the deductive process known as Middot shehatorah nidreshet bahen.


“As a public relations ploy, many rabbis and Zionist leaders pretend otherwise, revealing the low opinion they have of the public, who they believe will swallow the line about the Talmud being a mere book of discourses and disputes, where no definitive teaching or authoritative law-making emerges. The intent behind the deliberate sowing of this deception rests in the stratagem that by promoting the idea that the Talmud is a collection of debates and commentary without force of law, no indictment of it is possible, since another text can always be cited to contradict the offending one. However, the investigator who examines the historic discipline and practice of Orthodox Judaism can ascertain that a body of law codified in the Babylonian Talmud exerts the most profound command over individual Judaics and governs their conduct.


“What is disputed in the Talmud is often the Yud Gimmel Midot, not the Halakha l’Moshe M’Sinai. In presenting the Talmud to the public this distinction is often not made. There are thousands of discourses in authoritative rabbinic texts about minutiae, such as which dishes can be washed on Shabbos (the Sabbath), and how they may be washed. Disagreements along those lines are not disagreements concerning the non-negotiable, core Talmudic dogma that forms the halakha itself.”

What Does Rabbinic Judaism Say About What Makes Jews and Gentiles Different?

by Michael Hoffman, Unz Review, September 21, 2020





burying Moses, reviling Isaias, and boiling Jesus in excrement


The occultic portion of the Talmud, the Kabala, at Tikkunei Zohar 1:27b refers to the Mishnah of the Talmud as “the burial place of Moses.” The reference is an apt double entendre because the Talmud at Shabbat 15 teaches that it supersedes and nullifies the Old Testament, so “buries” the Pentateuch of Moses.


“Think not that I will accuse you to the Father: There is one that accuseth you, Moses, in whom you trust. For if you did believe in Moses, you would perhaps believe me also; for he wrote of me. But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe my words?” John 5:43-47


The “tradition of the Elders” actually “buries Moses” (Tikkunei Zohar 1:27b), disparages Moses and Isaias, places Moses in the 18th row of Talmud “sage” Rabbi Akiva like a dunce in the back of the class (Menachot 22b).


A quintessential example of Jewish hypocrisy—the Jews cherry-pick Isaias for their failed and long-rescinded “light unto the Gentiles” mission (Isaias 42:6, 49:6, 60:3), but claim that Isaias was killed by having his own mouth sawed in half for daring to accuse the Israelites for their “unclean lips” (Isaias 6:5):


[Isaias] thereupon pronounced [the Divine] Name and was swallowed up by a cedar. The cedar, however, was brought and sawn asunder. When the saw reached his mouth he died. [And this was his penalty] for having said, 'And I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips'.

Babylonian Talmud, Yebamoth 49b, Soncino Edition


The megalomaniacal hypocrites are ever ready to “defeat” God (Bava Metzia 59b) and His Prophets, even boiling Jesus in excrement and semen (Gittin 57a).



the Disputations • the emergence of sanitized “Torah”


St. Vincent Ferrer. a Jewish convert who converted thousands more Jews • Fresco by Fra Bartolommeo, c. 1500


For a millennium following Christ, Christians mistakenly believed that Jews were just people of the Old Testament who had rejected and murdered their Messiah. That bubble of innocence burst when sincere converts from Judaism revealed the foundational teachings of Judaism. Those shocking revelations—the non-human status of Gentiles, genocidal and other imprecations against Christians, blasphemies, perversions, and megalomaniacal presumptions—warranted confirmation. Due to the revelations of sincere converts such as Nicholas Donin, St. Vincent Ferrer, Jerónimo de Santa Fe, Johannes (Josef) Pfefferkorn, et al., further investigations were ordered, including the Disputations of Paris (1240 A.D.) and Tortosa (1413-1414 A.D.). Having no serious defense against the substantiated accusations, the rabbis involved slinked away humiliated.


Disputation between Jewish and Christian scholars. Johann von Armssheim, 1483. Woodcut


You are invited to examine the usual hasbara excuses about the Disputations in Jewish-owned Wikipedia and elsewhere, but suffice it to say that the rabbis have spent the centuries since the Disputations contriving a defense, but not an honest defense, only denial and concealment.


In the centuries since the Disputations, the rabbis have invested much effort in sanitizing and expurgating vernacular translations of the Talmud. When confronted with the evidence, the Jews have tried many tricks to explain away and conceal their supremacist, genocidal, perverse, and blasphemous creed. These sanitized editions are useful to the rabbis: “See it’s not there.” Or “The tractate is about ‘Balaam.’” In the sanitized Talmud editions numerous code word substitutions are used for Christians (min, Cuthean, Egyptian, Epicurean, etc.) and Jesus of Nazareth (“that man,” “the carpenter,” “Balaam,” “ben Pandera, a reference to the Talmud’s teaching that Jesus was the bastard of a whore who committed adultery with a Roman soldier named Pandera, and even blank spaces).


Lest you be deceived by the rabbis’ claim “Jesus isn’t even mentioned in the Talmud”:



Jesus in the Talmud


The rabbis’ ignominious “Torah” (Torah SheBeal Peh) teaches that Jesus was conceived adulterously in niddah (menstrual filth) by a Roman soldier named Pandera (Kallah 51a) of a whore (Sanhedrin 106a), so He is a mamzer (bastard) and that He is now in Hell boiling in feces and, in some editions of the Talmud, semen because he is accused of sexual perversion. (Gittin 57a).


The rabbis boast of responsibility for Jesus' Crucifixion, “hanged,” even though the Romans were “inclined toward acquittal” of Jesus (Sanhedrin 43a); therefore Jewish denial and blame-shifting to the Romans is a lie. The infamous Toledoth Yeschu, Maimonides’ Hilkoth Akun V, 3 and Letter to Yemen), and the 1905 Jewish Encyclopedia (page 170), all boast of Jewish responsibility for Christ’s death. The Talmud notes that Jesus deserved four more deaths.  The rabbis argue that Jesus should have been strangled while immersed in dung (Sanhedrin 52a). The rabbis insist that Jesus Himself was an idolater (Sanhedrin 43a, 107b) who worshipped a brick (Sanhedrin 67a, 107b), so Jesus was justly executed.


The rabbis say that Jesus returns on Christmas Eve (“nittel nacht,” “Night of the Hanged One”), that the mamzer (bastard) is crawling through all the maschovim (latrines), that Judas Iscariot fought an airborne battle with Jesus, that during the fight Judas ejaculated upon Jesus “like an arrow,” that God caused Jesus to fall from the sky, that the Jewish multitude dragged Jesus through all the maschovim (latrines), where Jesus was covered with feces and left to decompose, that Jesus’ disciples said, “Let his mother come and wipe his excrement.”(Toledoth Yeschu)


Jews routinely call Jesus “Yeshu” (ישו), a Jewish mockery of Jesus’ actual Hebrew name “Yeschua” (ישוע). Yeshu is a Hebrew acronym for: “May his name and memory be blotted out.”


There are numerous scurrilous, scatological, blasphemous accusations against Jesus in the Talmud and rabbinical literature. Though the passages have been denied and expurgated Talmud editions have been published, often using code words for Jesus, Princeton Professor and Director of Judaic Studies Peter Schafer has examined dozens of Talmud editions in the original and vernacular languages. Schafer not only adduces the explicit references to Jesus of Nazareth, but he also traces the code words used in the Talmud editions expurgated and sanitized for Gentile consumption. Schafer traces from edition to tractate to folio how “Balaam,” “that man,” “the carpenter,” “ben Pandera” (son of Pandera), the blank spaces, and the rest of the code words refer to Jesus of Nazareth.

See: Peter Schafer, Jesus in the Talmud (ISBN 13: 978-0691129266) https://www.amazon.com/Jesus-Talmud-Peter-Sch%C3%A4fer/dp/0691143188


When confronted with these scurrilous passages, Jews will variously pretend that these passages are about a different Jesus or are ancient and no longer taught. Oh, really???



“…but it’s really a different Jesus.”


Except that lie has been throughly debunked by the rabbinical literature as is well summarized here:

Blaspheming Mary and the Birth of Jesus in the Talmud




“…but we don’t teach that any more.” Oh, really???


Except that they do teach that:

Who Was Jesus?




Yeschu—the rabbis’ insider insult on the Holy Name of Jesus


Note the common Jewish insult on the Holy Name of Jesus. The Hebrew use of “Yeshu” (ישו) in Chagall’s blasphemy is a Jewish mockery of Jesus’ actual Hebrew name “Yeschua” (ישוע). Yeshu is a Hebrew acronym for:

“May his name and memory be blotted out.”







Karaites • the 0.2% remnant of Biblical Jews


Karaites are the only Jewish sect that rejects the Talmud and treats the Tanakh (Pentateuch) as authoritative. With about 30,000 Karaites worldwide and 13.7 million Jews worldwide, Karaites constitute roughly 0.2% of the worldwide Jewish population. Such respect for Tanakh is so antithetical to Judaism that the Israeli government forces Karaites to convert to Talmudic Judaism to exercise their “right of return.”


“Judaism in its formative period, that is, in the patriarchal and prophetic times, differed from exilic and post-exilic Judaism; and rabbinic or pharisaic Judaism again presents a phase quite different from Mosaic Judaism, to which the Sadducees, and afterward to some extent the Karaites, persistently clung. ”

Jewish Encyclopedia, entry on “Judaism,” http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/9028-judaism


“Jews who reject the Talmudic traditions of men and regard as supreme law only the Old Testament Word of God, are known as “Karaites” (“Scripturalists”). Karaism arose in reaction to the growing influence of the Talmud emanating from the Babylonian Talmudic academies in Pumbedita and Sura (in present day Iraq), among Jews of the late 7th and early 8th centuries. The Jewish patriarch of Karaism was an 8th century rabbinic convert from Talmudism, Anan ben David. His book of precepts, Sefer ha-Mizvot, undercut the authority of the Mishnah and Gemara. He famously stated, ‘Search diligently in the Scriptures and do not rely on my opinion.’


“Due to their Bible-only devotion, throughout their history Karaite Jews have been persecuted and even killed by Talmudic zealots. The existence of the Karaites is largely unknown to the Vatican II Catholics and fundamentalist Protestants who imagine that Talmudic rabbis are faithful Scripturalists.”

“The [Pharisaic-Rabbinic] schools believed that in heaven God and the angels studied Torah [i.e., Talmud/Kabbalah] just as the rabbis did on earth. God donned phylacteries like a rabbi. He prayed in rabbinic mode ... He guided the affairs of the world according to the rules of the Torah, like the rabbi in his court. One exegesis of the Creation-legend taught that God had looked into the Torah and therefrom had created the world. Moreover, heaven was aware above of what the rabbis in particular thought, said, and did below. The myth of the Torah was multi-dimensional. It included the striking detail that whenever the most recent rabbi was destined to discover through proper exegesis of the tradition was as much of a part of the way revealed to Moses as was a sentence of Scripture itself. It was therefore possible to participate in the giving of the law, as it were, by appropriate, logical inquiry into the law. God himself, studying and living by Torah, was believed to subject himself to these same rules of logical inquiry, so if an earthly court overruled the testimony, delivered through some natural miracles, of the heavenly one, God would rejoice, crying out, ‘My sons have conquered me! My sons have conquered me!’

“And my people, upon whom my name is called, being converted, shall make supplication to me, and seek out my face, and do penance for their most wicked ways: then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sins and will heal their land.”

2 Paralipomenon (2 Chronicles) 7:14



As usual, the rabbis presume to overrule God:


“Those who have no portion in the world to come:

he who pronounces the divine name as it is spelled out.”

Mishnah Sanhedrin 10:1


As usual, the Novus Ordo Judaizers submit to the rabbis, not God:


“Soon after his election as Pope, Benedict XVI was approached by the Chief Rabbi of Rome who said the use of the possible vocalization of the divine name (in The Jerusalem Bible) was offensive to Jews. Pope Benedict submitted the matter to the Pontifical Biblical Commission and we recommended the use of 'LORD,' with small capitals, for YHVH, a suggestion which the Pope [sic] accepted.”

Henry Wansbrough, Forward to The Revised New Jerusalem Bible, June 2019


“Despite the best efforts of men, there is no evading the name by which God commanded that His people shall know Him. ‘Hallelujah’ denotes ‘praise Yah (weh),’ while Adonai (abbreviated from ‘Adonijah’), signifies ‘My Lord is Yah(weh).’

Chabad rabbi “confusing God”



What diabolical arrogance to think men can confuse, blame, overrule, and command God:


On Rosh Hashanah (Talmudic New Year), the shofar (ram’s horn) is blown to confuse Satan and God so “the Jews” may escape accountability for their sins



Such are Satan’s chosen people.

Babylonian & Egyptian occultism in Judaism • paganism persists


When you unwrap the layers of dissimulation and misdirection in Judaism, at some point you will discover the pagan elements of Judaism, including reincarnation, sun worship, moon worship, polytheism, simulated copulation with a demon, animal sacrifices, curses, and black magic.   If you approach the rabbis at this point with the incontrovertible evidence, they will insist that you have only stumbled upon “Kabbalism, not really Judaism.” That too is another layer of dissimulation. These pagan beliefs and practices are not relegated to some fringe cult, but are widely practiced by religious Jews, occult practices that the synagogue of Satan (Apocalypse/Revelation 3:9) has borrowed during their exiles in Babylon (“Babylon stands higher than the land of Israel.” Kethuboth 111a), Sumeria, and Egypt.


Rabbi Adin Israel Steinsaltz is the one who translated the Talmud into English, but its publication in the 1990s was suspended because his accurate vernacular translation so inflamed Gentiles who first learned of the Master Race fundamentals of Judaism, the very same fundamentals that were first exposed by sincere converts from Judaism, the very same fundamentals that the rabbis have been denying since the Middle Ages.


Rabbi Steinsaltz was chosen by his peers to be Nasi (נָשִׂיא), ‘Prince’ of the Sanhedrin when it was reconstituted in 2004 for the first time in 1,600 years. To put Steinsaltz's position in perspective, he was selected to be above all other rabbis in the official court of the Jewish people. He filled the historical shoes of Caiaphas who engineered the judicial murder of Jesus Christ.

On his recently replaced website, this highly fêted Rabbi Steinsaltz plainly and unequivocally stated that:



“Kabbalah is the official theology of the Jewish people.”


screen capture from Rabbi Steinsaltz's recently replaced websitehttp://steinsaltz.org/dynamic/content.asp?id=65“Jewish Mysticism • According to Rabbi Steinsaltz, Jewish mysticism – or Kabbalah – is the official theology of the Jewish people. Although the world of Kabbalah is profoundly symbolic and abstract, its teachings are of tremendous significance to the individual and to society alike. Its influences are evident in all Jewish spheres – the prayer book, the Talmud, and Jewish philosophy. Kabbalah is not a separate area of Torah knowledge, but rather the hidden, spiritual dimension of the revealed aspects of the Torah. These revealed facets of Torah – such as halakha (Jewish law) – speak primarily about visible, physical things; Kabbalah, on the other hand, speaks directly about spiritual entities, like the system of olamot (spiritual “worlds,” or graduated levels of reality) and sefirot (divine “attributes,” or channels of divine energy) through which God creates, sustains and directs the universe. It also discusses the interaction between those entities and the performance of mitzvot [Talmudic obligations] in the physical world. It is for this reason that Kabbalah has been called the soul of the Torah. The character of Kabbalah is perhaps manifested most clearly in Hasidut. By changing the terminology of Kabbalah yet maintaining its messages, Hasidut offers a simpler, more accessible way of unlocking its secrets. The Hasidic movement, which has prompted dramatic changes in the outlook of the Jewish people, began in the late 18th century with the teachings of Rabbi Yisrael Ba’al Shem Tov. By re-emphasizing the value of every Jew, the Ba’al Shem Tov provided his disciples with the opportunity to link the individual closer to the Almighty. Hasidism has breathed new vitality into Jewish life, offering an alternate route to the arduous and, for some, unattainable path of study.”

What God judged as “voiding the commandments of God for the traditions of men” (Mark 7:6-9):


There are verses in the Torah that were explained away by the rabbis of the Talmud as either not applying any longer, never applying or they get made so complex to enact that they eventually fall away.


“…The Torah condones the death penalty while the Talmud pretty much outlaws it. [see Hoffman’s analysis] The Torah tells us to take our malcontent children to the gates of the city and if they can’t be reformed by the elders, to stone them to death. The Talmud tells us that never happened and never should happen. Sorry!


“And, in the reverse, the Torah is pretty clear about what keeping kosher should look like, and it is pretty simple, while the rabbis of the Talmud and later codes expanded the laws and made them quite complex. We have a long history of interpreting our Torah, redefining its meaning, and using very advanced and creative hermeneutical tools to either alter, or in some cases, downright change, what the original meaning seems to have been. We have the principle of PARDES, which is a rabbinic literary invention, whereby each word of the Torah has four levels of interpretation: the literal meaning, peshat, a more subtle or hinting reading, remez, a creative commentary, drash, and a totally hidden or mysterious meaning, sod. Through this technique, and many others, commentators, most famously Rashi, 11th century in France, have sometimes completely changed the text from what it literally says.

Analysis by Michael A. Hoffman II:



wise words from Michael Hoffman about the rabbis’ “context” deceit


“‘Context’ is everything for the defenders of the Talmud. Fair enough. But by ‘context’ they do not mean taking into account the surrounding text, but rather submitting to Judaism’s own narrative about itself, which includes how it presents problem texts to non-Judaic audiences.... The rabbis even deny in many cases that there is a plain meaning.... It is enough that [the rabbi] states it and gentiles believe it; anything else is ‘antisemitic.’ This pattern of intimidation and thought control is repeated with monotonous effect, by thought cops and apologists for Judaism. It is a stock response intended to frighten off the opposition, premised mainly on the moral authority of the declarative sentences used by the ‘expert’ on Judaism. Debate (‘polemic’) on the part of informed skeptics is not permitted, since it constitutes the ‘misuse’ of a scholar’s knowledge of rabbinic texts. Debating tactics and polemical tools are reserved solely for rabbis and their allies, along with just a dash of permissible dissimulation to leaven the burden of swallowing the pottage. And when deception and ‘out of context’ statements serve to advance Judaism, they are all well and good....”

Israel Considers ‘Jewish Nation-State’ Law

by Jonathan Cook

New legislation to cement the definition of Israel as a state belonging exclusively to Jews around the world is a “declaration of war” on Palestinian citizens of Israel, the minority’s leaders warned this week. The bill, which defines Israel as the “national home of the Jewish people,” passed its first vote in the Israeli parliament, after it received unanimous backing from a government committee. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed to get the measure on to the statute books within 60 days ... The legislation affirms that world Jewry has a “unique” right to national self-determination in Israel ... The Law of Return of 1950 allows only Jews to immigrate to Israel and receive citizenship.
