Really?

According to the Jewish sacred writings, WHICH BECAME THE HEBREW BIBLE, Jews are descended from the ancient people of Israel who settled in the land of Canaan, located between the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River (1451 BCE). The Children of Israel shared a lineage through their common ancestors, Abraham, his son Isaac, and Isaac's son Jacob, Hebrews whose nomadic travels centered around Hebron somewhere between 1991 and 1706 BCE, apparently leading to the establishment of the Cave of the Patriarchs as their burial site in Hebron. The Children of Israel consisted of twelve tribes, each descended from one of Jacob's twelve sons, Reuven, Shimon, Levi, Yehuda, Yissachar, Zevulun, Dan, Gad, Naftali, Asher, Yosef, and Benyamin.

You can call yourself of Jewish descent if you claim to have Jewish blood. I have no problem with that.

Is that what you call yourslf? And why?

I don't know the name of your particular religious cult. Is that a secret? I've asked before.

Some sort of quasi-Christian splinter group I would think. Probably not important enough to be dangerous.

For you to say that being Jewish has never been associated with Judaism is patently absurd.

One of the oldest ethnoreligius groups in the world. Probably the oldest.

HughBe--- Really!!! Your own quote supports it. Note the emphasis on LINEAGE or BIOLOGY. Note LINEAGE has to do with RACE. It does not speak to BEHAVIOUR or beliefs. "The Children of Israel shared a LINEAGE(RACE) through their common ancestors, Abraham, his son Isaac, and Isaac's son Jacob, Hebrews whose nomadic travels centered around Hebron somewhere between 1991 and 1706 BCE,.."



Former---You can call yourself of Jewish descent if you claim to have Jewish blood. I have no problem with that.

hughBe-- I make no claim, I declare the FACTS. There is no need to claim the reality.

Former--Is that what you call yourslf? And why?

HughBe-- I am of mixed heritage. I don't call myself Jewish and I have NEVER done so but I was NEVER ashamed of my Jewish blood.

Former--I don't know the name of your particular religious cult. Is that a secret? I've asked before.

HughBe--- look in your drawers for cult. My religion is not a secret and is found in the scriptures.

Former--For you to say that being Jewish has never been associated with Judaism is patently absurd.

HughBe--- Do you what is absurd and laughable? Is it the fact that I have explained it so many times and it keeps going over your head. Tell me who was the first Jew and then tell me if he had Judaism. Tell me about the Judaism of the Israel of the exodus meaning while they were in Egypt.

Please THINK it is starting to hurt me in my ....

Former--One of the oldest ethnoreligius groups in the world. Probably the oldest.

HughBe--- Tell me the religion of the 10 tribes who went into CAPITIVITY. Open your mind and close your mouth then you shall learn.

HughBe---if the truth be told the fabricated doctrines of the rabbis are esteeemed ABOVE the scriptures.

"The Talmud OUTSTRIPS even the Bible in influence and importance. Explicating and building upon the Torah's laws, stories, and ideas, the Talmud also lay the groundwork for new religious sensibilities that stressed scholarship and were attuned to the needs of the Jews in the Diaspora."

http://www.myjewishlearning.com/texts/Rabbini ...

----------

Proof---Raba made the following exposition: What is the purport of the Scriptural text: And, furthermore my son, be admonished: Of making many books etc.? My son, be MORE careful in [the observance of] the words of the Scribes than in the words of the Torah, for in the laws of the Torah there are positive and negative precepts; but, as to the laws of the Scribes, whoever transgresses any of the enactments of the Scribes incurs the penalty of death. In case you should object: If they are of real value why were they not recorded [in the Torah]? Scripture stated:‘Of making many books there is no end’

How far back do we need to go to convince you?

The ancient roots of Judaism lie in the Bronze Age polytheistic Ancient Semitic religions, specifically Canaanite religion, a syncretization with elements of Zoroastrianism and of the worship of Yahweh reflected in the early prophetic books of the Hebrew Bible. During the Babylonian captivity of the 6th and 5th centuries BCE, certain circles within the exiled Judahites in Babylon redefined pre-existing ideas about monotheism, election, divine law and Covenant into a theology which came to dominate the former Judah in the following centuries.

From the 5th century BCE until 70 CE, Israelite religion developed into the various theological schools of Second Temple Judaism, besides Hellenistic Judaism in the diaspora. The text of the Hebrew Bible was redacted into its extant form in this period and possibly also canonized as well...

For example, "The ancient ROOTS of Judaism lie in the Bronze Age polytheistic Ancient Semitic RELIGIONS, specifically CANAANITE religion, a syncretization with elements of Zoroastrianism and of the worship of Yahweh reflected in the early prophetic books of the Hebrew Bible"

Based on scripture God gave Moses and Israel His Laws etc. Israel was to be a peculiar people a holy nation etc. and this would not have become a reality by LEARNING the ways of the non-Jewish goyim.

Do you know what the word PECULIAR means?
