The following program is recorded content created by the Truth Network. Once again, separate fact from fiction when it comes to the question of cannabis in the Hebrew Bible for the light a fire with your host Google scholar and cultural commentator Dr. Michael Brown your voice for more savvy and spiritual clarity. Call 866-34-TRUTH to get on the line of fire and now there's your host Dr. Michael Brown Michael Brown here.

I'm not sure what happened to my voice today, but it is Yours truly for those watching. Yes, it's me.

For those listening.

Trust me, it's me. Welcome to the broadcast. Grab a fascinating conversation today and when to take your Jewish related call so any Jewish related question of any kind, 866-34-TRUTH 866-348-7884 is the number to call another reminder if you want to join us in Israel next year, God willing, may 2023. The trip of a lifetime. So many ways amazing, incredible experience will have together enriching on every level you want to go to the website ask Dr. SK GR, right in the homepage will find info on the chore. If you want to go there earlier register the better because seating is limited. Okay few years ago I saw some articles online was hearing people talk about all the, the Bible and the Torah and prescribe the use of cannabis. It was part of the holy oil that was to be used in the sanctuary. So I looked up the claimant was utterly longest it had zero academic support was easily refuted.

I wrote about it way back then. While a few weeks ago I wrote an article about whether marijuana should be legalized, even in my own opinion on it and he got a lot of attention on the daily why Roy posted the article, so I wrote a follow-up article with the Bible really says about cannabis and was a complete fresh new article from the old and ugly. Some years ago overlapping, but a fresh new article and to my utter surprise this article, which is just for subscriber's daily wire so not even this large general public reading with your subscribers, which is on the list. Many people there are right now almost a thousand comments to the article just posted a couple days ago almost a thousand comments to the article, so I decided to come on the broadcast of this. It is through Jewish Thursday and get into a little more depth.

Those who are able later to go to our YouTube channel Esther to Brett asking your Brown on YouTube or on our homepage. Esther Cabral, the Lord you be able to watch Roy put some slides up, but otherwise, and explain everything. For all those because I know the vast majority of your listing for all those listed by radio or podcast again if you want interact with me on the subject or you have a Jewish related question on any other subject we get to the calls little bit later in the show 866-34-TRUTH so some people raised in their comments and only seen some of the comments Genesis 1 where God says to humanity to a Dom see I give you. Genesis 120 et seq. if you every seed bearing plant that is upon all the earth and every tree that has seed bearing fruit. They shall be yours for food so the argument is God gave us every plant to use, and marijuana is one of those plants and it can be used for Medicaid purposes, so we should use it will whether it's good or not, whether it has value or not is unrelated to this verse which says it's for food. No one eats marijuana for nourishment. You can ingest it to get high. You can adjusted for medical purposes, but you don't eat it before for sustenance. Okay so this is all the plant seed bearing plants that were given for food. Of course, before the The Fall and presumably there are no poisonous plants, but even if you want to say it's all the plants what it was for food for eating so this verse does not address the subject at all subsequent to the fall. We have poisonous plants. Are you saying that we should eat all plants because God gave us all plants or rather see the use of the plant whether it's helpful or not but many case this is for food, got it right so completely unrelated. So the main verse that comes up is Exodus chapter 30 of those watching Unger put it on the screen for you in Hebrew Iran the left and English on the right. Okay. And here, God tells Moses next take choice spices 500 weight of solidified murder half as much. 250 of fragrant cinnamon 250 of Aramaic aromatic Cane of the words, aromatic cane. I have highlighted here who can they blossom right, aromatic cane, the word can they is cane so kind. They cane and then bow some is aromatic, aromatic, sweet smelling sweet spices right. I also highlighted in the same verse, the word cinnamon king among the king among Besson. So this is related so it is fragrant cinnamon again you have Besson bow some for fragrant but Kinnaman if you look at it you, you'll see that in the. The third letter, there is a.that's called the delegation that means it's a double and all right.

That's why cinnamon in English which comes from the Hebrew king among right that's that's why the English has a double and cinnamon with two ends.

Contrast that with cannabis, which is spelled with two ends, but the Hebrew from which this allegedly comes from which this is allegedly derived can a bosun only has a single aunt.

In other words, the phonetic correspondence from the Hebrew to the English from the Hebrew to the Greek to the English is not there, it is plainly not there that not only so, but the final M the Mem is missing in cannabis and you also have different vowels entirely right.

So instead of connate you have, instead of ball you have been in and you don't have the final manager of a double exit. It completely breaks down silverware today by get this from.

It was a Polish anthropologist tragically lost her entire family to the Nazis and the Holocaust. As I read her brief biography when she passed away.

I believe the age of 76. She was a professor at Hunter College in the states at that point and she had a PhD in Poland and earned a PhD in Columbia University. She was a learned woman, but apparently lost her entire families that she had no immediate surviving relatives. Some of the horror of the Holocaust: and she was an anthropologist, so she looked at folklore through the world of different customs through the world in 1936, said looks like cannabis actually comes from these words and even though there is there is no linguistic phonetic correspondence. It simply doesn't work anymore than the word mice is related to the name Moses. The it it doesn't work. It's completely on related and in all my years of studying getting my PhD in Semitic languages. Her name never came up once never an article. Never book never referenced because she was not a Semitic scholar. She was not a linguist she was.

Not an entomologist, she was an anthropologist right studying human traditions and human development over the centuries, so it is a complete bogus complete bogus comparison or argument that God prescribed cannabis in the sanctuary. This is new with biases than they do with the fact that I was a pot smoker before I got saved and 71 also heroin she decide to do everything but is not to do with the fact is that I have used drugs illicit drugs and over 50 years. Just sit with the reset is there. Well, I see the thing about the comparison and the letters don't work in the breaks down there. The house doing all your light brown is your is making this claim, we can't just accept because you have these degrees Fahrenheit for so here's next question when the ancient translators saw these words, the ancient Greek translators.

The ancient Aramaic translators. The ancient Latin translators. The ancient Syriac translators. How did they translate this because you would think that somebody in the ancient world knew that this referred to cannabis and not just general, aromatic cane okay so let's take a look at what's called the target Mrs. Targum UNCLOS.

This is the Aramaic translation of the Torah. Okay, when UNCLOS saw this so we can Exodus chapter 30 verse 23, he translated with who can they smile who, connate, blue smoke, which is basically the exact same thing in Hebrew narrative aromatic right and aromatic canes could make a plural or aromatic canes, but it's exact same words. In other words, he didn't think UNCLOS didn't think that this was the word for hemp or something like that note he just understood Aramaic ain't no here's what's interesting the Greek language already had the word cannabis the Greek language had it it existed already when the Greek translators in the in the third century BC, translated the Torah from Hebrew into Greek. These were Jewish, Greek scholars were cataracts skews me existed already in Greek, which are that moment okay then translate with cannabis how they translate they translate it with, column notice, so it this is again sweet smelling fragrance. This is this is not hemp. This is like I was. They had the word for cannabis that they didn't use it. They didn't use the same with the per sheet of the series translators a few hundred years after the time of Jesus. For those that that no spherical, just put the slide up its highlight a few but they did the same thing. You even have that same bosun in Heber you have a fear in Syriac right so that skews me the same thing.

They sought they did not translate with hemp or any form of that or cannabis. No, they simply translated the Hebrew correctly, aromatic cane, sweet smoking the same thing with the Vulgate Jerome in Latin and in the fourth century, all right, what does he have Ptolemy right which the King James wrongly than drive calamus from that it was speaking something else.

But again, that did music cannabis word the news and look cannabis someone for the one were slightly Villa Del Scott Jones, Greek lexicon, the premier lexicon of classical Greek to this day, a massive work of scholarship it it knows the word cannabis okay nurse with with two ends. The Hebrew connate only has one and two ends.

And it goes to Herodotus uses goes all the way back in the ancient Greek world and when it's when it's derived where they're trying to get where the word comes from. There's a reference to Heber. What because it has nothing to do with the book in a bosun and all the ancient translators fully understood that they knew it. Every solid dictionary of the line knows it might be rejected because they want to have their Bible and pot to. That's the only reason is that a shred scholarly evidence to support not a shred line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown on the line of fire by calling 866-34-TRUTH here again is Dr. Michael Brown then spends money is on juicers and the phone shortly, 866-348-7884 yet whatever's going on with my voice feel good otherwise and hopefully doesn't put you off too much. But having said that you check out vitamin if you haven't, my friend, Dr. Mark Stang them a personal physician. This great great health supplements and he's a sponsor of this broadcast so you order their go through that the site by you get 10% discount when you order using the code that's listed there and Dr. Stenger turns around and makes a generous contribution to our ministry to help us talk to more people like you are right so just a little more on the cannabis question this in entomology online website that a check today and it's entry for cannabis as far as I can see is is reliable so the word cannabis… This comment hemp from cannabis modern Latin plant genus name something 28 from Greek cannabis and hemp skit the end or Thracian word and it gives us is the source of Armenian, often these other languages as well. So entomologist have trace this back to a skiff EM or Thracian work. So there I was all anomaly goes like it doesn't go by deep. The argument breaks down every single point will I saw a comment that was posted & 101 amounts for real. This is a great websites for real.or Greek compendium of traditional Jewish sources. There's an article kosher cannabis Judaism and marijuana by Rabbi are in films and it goes." Genesis 129 about would confuse inhale and" will be just been reading in. In Exodus the 30th chapter and tries to an end."

The Polish anthropologists we mention Sula Bennett and he calls her Semitic entomologist, which she wasn't. At least she was not known for that. She did not specialize in that so as to be known in the larger academic world is a Semitic entomologist.

She was known as an anthropologist is a learned anthropologist two different fields are and she claims is an astonishing resemblance between the Semitic cannonballs and the skiff in cannabis there is not Semitic cannonballs. Okay, who is not Semitic can both. There is Semitic Carne bosun right with a single and a double and and on and on. So it it completely breaks down three quotes are and then he quotes an article another Jewish man didn't have Aaron, the high priest smoke.

This is published in Ha'aretz a few years back I did Aron the high priest smoke and said hey play on words high priest got it. There's nothing sees me of academic substance in either of these articles to back the idea that cannabis was prescribed for use in the Bible or recommended for use. The Bible basically doesn't comment on it, just as it doesn't comment on other plants are plants which we get opium and things like that. Just comment a lot on drinking right at this comment about getting drunk. Proper use of alcohol or the abusive use of alcohol, so those things doesn't comment on select only what I could do other than one show you that the phonetic correspondence does not work. That's 12 show you that all the ancient versions which were the best scholars of their day. Your people fluent in biblical Hebrew translating into Greek or Aramaic or Syriac or Latin, that every one of them translated differently than cannabis is greatly translating the Hebrew and that every major dictionary to find of Greek words can I go through entomology or of Hebrew, biblical Hebrew will say no that I can even address the cannabis issue because it's unrelated. It's unrelated, disgusted. He remains this week. Mrs. etc. so you you can make the Bible mean what you want, you could say will, according to the Bible.

There is no God.

According to the Bible.

There is no heaven according to the Bible is the Jesus you could fantasize as much as you want doesn't change the truth it does not change the truth so the whole question of should cannabis be legal or not.

The Christian get higher not.

Those are separate questions. This question is easily dismissed and is no argument about it from a linguistic lexical etymological viewpoint 00 proven wrong. Go ahead, prove me wrong academically on the right go-ahead phone lines are open 866-34-TRUTH with that we go to the poems of Ruben in Brownsville, Texas. Welcome to the line of fire around women putting up a bottle. Yeah, go ahead, will, or I could interject back to the dental but not bring Jewish movement. I think that movement and your route and Nana Nana Julie, but I can't find any reliable work online at how an expert modern nocturne Jewish movement was created.

It's it's just what names people put on things.

Ruben and, in other words, the closest equivalent to the Nazarenes of the early centuries of this error would be messianic Jews.

This is usually risen Jesus who maintained their Jewish identity, but are Orthodox believers you had other early groups you had the Appian Knights that were Jewish believers who maintain their identity, but they were heretical and some of their beliefs or the Corinthians that the Corinthians, but the Corinthians.

Also, Jewish believers with some heretical beliefs so the ones that rejected the authority for bankers Judaism, the ones who accepted the Orthodox gospel and use of Jesus and Paul things like that but continue to live as Jews and were often misunderstood by the church. Those were the Nazarenes so the modern equivalent of that would be messianic Jews who hold to the fundamentals of the faith we continue to identify as Jews, now others may use the term for themselves today and everybody use the differently than what you you got heretical groups and Hebrew roots and some that are not as bad you. You've got messianic Jews who have gone heretical and so people use the term in different ways and I I don't know myself. I've never looked at it to see if you could trace back to start saying we are the modern Nazarenes is basically a term that people are putting on themselves may be accurately maybe inaccurately. So I would. I would completely look past the term right. I would not even focus on that.

I just say okay what you actually believe and how you live and that would be the only what they could put a good term audit or bad term on it. The question is how are they living whether they believe those would be the issues to me and again it's going to be different from one group to another. But we know the danger signs we know the denial of the deity of Yeshua great danger sought we know the danger side of the rejecting of the writings of Paul or Hebrews things like that.

We know the great danger sign of saying everyone is obligated to observe the Sinai covenant Jew and Gentile were not right with God so you can look for those danger signs in these groups, but beyond that it's it's all a matter of how to use the term so as best I can answer okay thank you document into a quick parent, you are going all formula of Matthew 2819 authentic a lot out of your added the Iraq Orthodox Bay that is what you regularly know it's it's authentic there and it's reflected in early literature like that the.K, which is maybe early second century some of the hundred years of the time of Jesus, and they reflect that the writing their so-called cheek in the 12 apostles that reflects it as well. So if if I was looking that up right so what I would do. I either go to my software right and I pull up Bruce Metzger's textual commentary on the New Testament, so just take a second to do that but will do this together here and what Metzger does is is he has your textual commentary on the Greek New Testament so for every single variant he's going to have a detailed note and then he's gonna rake them okay this is how certain the reading is and things like that. So when you go to Matthew 2819 right when you go there you see actually there is not a note on. In other words, this is not something that's in dispute. So you may fear always in dispute and things like that but as far as textual scholarship. This is not something that's in dispute, the textual critics wrestle with this if they are not your controversy.

John the one through 11. The adulterous woman or Mark 16 nine 320 know there's a great discussion on textual scholars. There, but as far as Matthew 2819 nope, I'm not, and will hate. Thank you for the calls.

Much appreciated. All right, we got some phone lines open so if you would like to call in 866-348-7884 any Jewish related question to be related to the Hebrew Bible, messianic prophecy Jewish background to the New Testament questions about Israel today glad to answer any Jewish related question, and Angelo. You'll be first up on the side of the break when we come back, so stay right here folks, a lot of fire and hate I guess you got used to my voice little bit different today, but the same thoroughly Jewish house of their leaders Thursday will be the line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown on the line of fire by calling 866-34-TRUTH here again is Dr. Michael Brown as friends on Thursday.

Michael Brown delighted to be with you. 866-348-7884. Going to the phones momentarily so I've got a headline that I'm looking at on my screen Jews non-Christians not part of conservative movement GOP candidate consultant read that again Jews non-Christians not part of conservative movement GOP candidate consultant both Republicans and Democrats have called on must-read Donald to withdraw his ad campaign from the gab social media platform right so this is in in the Pennsylvania Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug must Rihanna who was an outspoken, unashamed Christian.

He has advertised on gab social media alternative to twitter and the like, but unfortunately, while gab is not censoring people on the right, as twitter is the leader of gab, the CEO, Andrew Tora Bora has made numerous statements that many consider Blake is me blatantly anti-Semitic and many would say a spouse is a form of Christian nationalism that is terribly dangerous. While I just looked at my twitter feed right before going back on the air.

During the break, and I saw a poster about 30 minutes ago. Dr. D.

Jackson. Dr. Brown I would love to hear your take on Christian nationalism as espoused by Andrew Torbert, CEO of gab or any thoughts. Thank you. So I wrote back that are about to address this on the air so we will reach out to Mr. Tora Bora privately and invite him to come on here with me and present his views, making clear that I differ strongly with his perspective if he declines the invitation or simply doesn't get back to us then, God willing, I will address the quotes his stance. I'll address it fairly in writing and on the air, but as always, if we can reach out to someone first and get them to interact with us and present their side.

We will absolutely do that. As for the quotes in the article. As for the form of Christian nationalism that are espoused by Mr. Tora Bora.

As I understand his views. I categorically reject the medics book coming out in September. The political seduction of the church. I believe will be a tremendously important volume 1 most controversial that I've written a tremendously important fact.

Beginning next week will tell you how you can preorder get a signed copy of the book and a number copy from the first printing so we are we are eager to get this in your hands, and of course address those questions in the book brought a question, do I expect extreme forms of Christian nationalism, namely the Christians are called to take over America and the court disciple.

The whole nation by getting everyone under Christianity and under Christian law of some kind.

So I expect that to be anti-Semitic, absolute, no question about all right, let's go. The phones in Richmond, Virginia Angelo, thanks for holding welcome to the line of fire… And I appreciate you that question that I wanted you dollars you call it.

I wanted to know all about the how that will use one of the note about the impact of God.

How significant removal of the people from the goblet for the people of the Bible. McRoberts 200 yes or absolutely happy to answer in the first say, as you mentioned a Gentile believers as I would refer to it through Gentile in in the Bible, can have two different meanings. A neutral meaning and the negative meaning the negative meaning is like pagans, you know, this worldly people, ungodly people. I don't know the one true God. The people of the nations worship other gods and that's why in Ephesians 4 pulses a don't live like the Gentiles. Many of the other Gentiles don't don't live the way they live.

The other meaning of the word or simply the people of the nations or the word nation.

God told Abram you will be a great goy in the word goy is the word for Gentile, so another shall be a great nation so the gleam those of the nations and the people of the nations so Paul uses it in that sense, in Romans 11 was his handwriting. Few Gentiles as the apostle to the Gentiles on or provoke a one of what you provoke my people Israel to envy. So when I use it obviously is the positive sense of people from the nations, and not just what you understand that I just want say that for everybody. Everybody else okay so the synagogues were in innovation of the Pharisees because there was just one place of worship in ancient Israel. That was the temple. There was one place where a three times year all the males of Israel were to make a pilgrimage to the Temple and to celebrate the feast and things like that and if there are special sacrifices you had to offer you one allowed to offer them just in your own city or things like that, you were to bring them to the temple you bring your tied periodically to the temple and things like that so what happened was in between the time of the Old Testament and New Testament. The Pharisees developed this idea of having meeting houses. Not many temples they want to substitute for the template you can offer sacrifices. There you have a you know the the full arc of the covenant, they are things like that but you have these places in each community where Jews could come together, he taught the scriptures together say their prayers together and have a basic place for communal life so very much similar to a local church or synagogue today that these were the communal meeting places where you would come with people of like faith, we would hear the Scriptures read where you would hear teaching from the Scriptures were you would offer your prayers together and the prayers developed over over period of centuries and it would also be a place where community could have a basis so let's say there are issues that you had to work through or figure out or were there needed to be some type of judgment carried out against someone that the synagogue would be convenient meeting place and base of the basic word means a a a meeting place for an assembly gathering so by the time of Jesus. These were very common and even though they were pharisaic innovation. It was something that he participated in because it was was part of Jewish life that in his view was was positive and good.

So to be put out of the synagogue as it mentions and in John 16 you quoted or in the case of the man who was blind and was healed of people are afraid to be part of the synagogue.

John nine so that was that was very much cutting you off from communal Jewish life. It would it would be like today. Let's just say you were Jehovah's Witness right and in your city. There were four different Jehovah's Witness congregations and you were excommunicated for being a heretic so you're put out of those communities are not welcome in any of them. So you are now looked at as an outsider right. Same thing with with Mormons right so it in the in the earth in the early church was the same thing you had courage you just at the church in the city, and you met different places.

If you're put out your put out. That's what was in the synagogue. It's not like you have bought all go instead to the from the conservative synagogue to the reform synagogue are not all go from the reform synagogue to the north like synagogue there just the semiotic that was it your put out there. There was problem now.

The Sadducees didn't participate in the Sadducees were all temple base so that did not exclude you from the temple, but in terms of practical life, especially after the destruction of the temple that was bad news to be part of the synagogues thought he broke it up or down, but I'll give you additional questions were okay but there was a great on public model. Thank you very much you're very welcome, sir.

I appreciate 866-34-TRUTH.

Everything I appreciate as Angelo's methodology to let things sink and adjust them and then okay, maybe the triggers another question that's that's a good way to learn.

Get it sink in.

The adjusted and then from there. Okay, maybe the triggers of the questioning that answers the questions, let me mention a couple things of interest as we talk about synagogues. If we go to James Jacob. The second chapter. It is very interesting out when I was putting up slides earlier in the broadcast. Those were all from records Bible software check and other records is great software to dig into the Scriptures and go as deep as you wanted going to the original languages, but saw among the grab James Jacob. The second chapter and pull that up on my screen here all right and I'll I'll do it with the English on the left and the Hebrew on the right and here's here's what it says universe, one in a recent history. My brother show no partiality as you hold the faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory for a man wearing a gold ring and fine clothing comes into your assembly and format shabby clothing also comes in. You pay attention to the one who wears the fine clothing and so you sit here in a good place you sit here in a good place when you sit in the form and you stand over there, or sit on my feet have you not then made distinctions among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts.

All right, I will focus on verse two. From memory gold ring and fine clothing comes into your assembly and when you look at the Greek word for assembly.

It is synagogue all right. So we go again. In Greek, so that's the word for synagogue now elsewhere in the New Testament when occurs over 50 times its transit synagogue, synagogue, synagogue, synagogues, and one verse in the book of acts restoring the crowd that gathered assembly that would be the one exception otherwise was some other meeting place is always New Testament transit synagogue. How about the negative verses in Revelation 29 Revelation 39 were Jesus refers you claim to be Jews in S synagogue of Satan, awnings, translations translate with synagogue. Why don't they translate James Jacob 22 with synagogue well because it's a Christian meeting place so I can be a synagogue. Jacob James is written to Jewish believers in Yeshua and the place where they gather together was called a synagogue, a meeting place. What do you know that use a different and new word use the word that was used in their Jewish community process. What this was a religious meeting place, a synagogue what you know the line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown got on the line of fire by calling 866-34-TRUTH here again is Dr. Michael Brown as friends on Jewish Thursday.

Yours truly, with this hoarse voice. I know I don't know where it came from.

I I've been doing a ton of writing is always do, but amped up in certain ways ton of writing, but I haven't been doing a lot of of interviews and video recording in teaching.

All right. Okay this past weekend in Vegas on a person's couple times Saturday night Sunday morning talking to people like always book so I'm not sure why the horses hopefully be utterly gone tomorrow, but it is the same person speaking to you. When I got up this morning and sleep on the why and I hadn't talked for a while was talking to the Lord just quietly I hadn't talked to Nancy she was she was out the artery doing some work in and went to talk term 547 about the five times worse than this is the what in the world is going on but anyway, glad to be real still the same voice for moral side of the spiritual clarity. The tone doesn't change that Emil doesn't all right I want to address one of the issue is. You know my views as a Jewish follower of Jesus. Joshua, I believe that salvation forgiveness of sins is found in him. And if we reject him. We reject God's mercy.

If we reject what God did through him on the cross, we reject God's mercy. I do not believe there is another means of salvation for Jews as post-Gentiles.

I do not believe that if a Jewish person observe the Torah faithfully follow the traditions as best as they could. So to honor God that they can bypass the cross that they have another way of redemption or another way of salvation, if Jesus had come into the world as a prophet to the nations and to die for the sins of the nations because they did not have the Torah and they did not have the traditions and they did not have a means of atonement, then that would be a separate ballgame that would be completely different so we would spend all of our time just going to the rest of the world. The Gentile world is usually have their own covenant, but the New Testament tells us the exact opposite message that usually came first and foremost for his own people, the Jews that assisted in an Matthew chapter 1 verse 21 Nicole's name Yeshua, for he will save his people from their sins.

This people read Luke one the whole story is redemption coming to Israel and therefore then to the rest of the world. Salvation for Israel means salvation for the rest of the world's whole self identity through the Gospels that he's the Messiah of Israel. He dies as King of the Jews just as he was born as King of the Jews and when he rises from the dead and then meets with his disciples and says why are you so slow to believe it was written in the Scriptures. Many of the Hebrew Bible.

Many opens their minds they can understand, so they could see from Moses on through the Hebrew Scriptures. The prophecies were about his suffering and glory that would follow and then in the book of acts as Peter and the others being free from her all Jews preaching to Jews what speed is measured message so the house of Israel.

Let all the house of Israel know that this same issue with this Jesus whom you crucified. God has made both Lord and Messiah to repent and turn to him and that's the thing over and over and asked to annex three and ask for next five. Same thing over and over that and NX seven. Same thing that there's no reference to Gentiles as the representative Samaritans, which recently Reduce until the eighth chapter is Jews Jews Jews Jews from around the world. Hearing this message about the Jewish Messiah, and then with the destruction of the temple gobbler shouting to the nation. The old system is done. I've instituted a new and better system atonement.

Now comes to the Messiah. You no longer have your tongue and sister know I have a functioning temple. You know I have a functioning priesthood in the land of the functioning temple that's gone because God is replaced it with something better now.

There is a fascinating Jewish tradition in the Babylonian Talmud tractate Yoma and it is page 39 a and B traditional printing of the Talmud.

Every page is printed the same Celica Bible. If I tell you, page 311 that this many think pencil would Bible house printed so that's always a chapter and verse, but in Talmud is traditionally printed Standard Edition for centuries.

You got the the front page is the a page and you flip it that the b-sides of a side in the B side.


A and B this fascinating tradition. There is tractate Yoma your meeting in Aramaic the day then the day of atonement, and it talks about the high priest and everything that has to be done to separate him so he doesn't get ritually unclean before the day of atonement and and and the rights that he goes through and then these different signs that God gave Israel as to whether sins would be forgiven and not on the day of atonement, and there were three different primary signs. The priest would reach into an urn and and and pullout with his right hand and his left hand to lots. One was the goat that would be sacrificed to the Lord. That should come up in the right hand that was a good sign left hand@the other goat was the one skull. The scapegoat later.

That would carry the sins of Israel into the wilderness was ultimately killed pushed off a cliff by the color Jesus so that when you want the priest to get his left hand, if you pull them out and it was reversed the goat to be sacrificed to the Lord within the left-hand bad side bets on the goat that would be sent out to the wilderness. The goat for us to sell right right hand@next would be that there was a scarlet thread that was tied to the gates of the temple doors.

Excuse me to the front of the temple doors and if the sins were forgiven in accordance was a 118. The scarlet thread would turn white.

Also some of the traditions of the scarlet thread put on the one of the horns of the goat and if that turn white. Those good sign if it didn't turn white pants, pencil them last is the candlestick in the and in the temple them. The menorah, so the the way it would be lit would be from East to West right so the westernmost case is from west to east so the westernmost candle was written at first, and if God was with Israel and forgive sins that year they'll be less with the glop first one lit, but the last one to go up, so the tradition records there in the Talmud that in the days of Shimon hot Sadik so righteous high priest that lived different dates given few hundred years before Jesus that all the four years he was a high priest every year, got accepted, sacrificed on the day of atonement every year. All three sides came up positive opposite because of his righteousness, and intercession. That would be that the understand after that some years.

Good some years back, and when it was bad. The bad side of the nation's discouraged… Receive our sacrifices are fasting and prayer. This is this the last 40 years before the temple was destroyed all three signs came up negative each of the four years the other rabbis were upset with me for using this. These are traditions your misuse them. I'm simply looking at was given to him rubbing on that the rabbis taught given as a historical account now I understand the many accounts of atonement and have to be historically analyzed today happen as written with a revised a period of time. I'm sterile, but this is considered to be a widely reliable source.

Among those negative things that you wouldn't document must really happen when create this right. So the last 40 years before the temple was destroyed. None of the signs came up positive.

This is either from the beginning of Jesus ministry until the destruction of the temple or depending on dating the time of his crucifixion to the destruction of the temple so Jesus comes on the scene administers.

More specifically, dies for sins and God is shouting to the nation. The old system is over the old system is over.

I've given you a new and better way and when you rejected the new and better way than judgment came Temple was destroyed. That's the bad news. The good news is the new and better way. Still are to this day.

Traditional Jews were some of the most sincere people that I know the traditional Jews have gotten over there so you have flakes, just like a flakes of the church and like several, but I've got to know so many deeply sincere men and women and people who really desire to honor God and do what is right and live for him and believe that they're doing the right thing by fearing to the traditions effect. They believed to deviate from that would be grave sin against God's will save every traditional Jew listening to me you still don't have atonement outside of the shoe.

You still have atonement outside of the Messiah in the right sacrifice for sins that human sacrifice, but rather the Tony power the death of the righteous meet the concept that you came to prepare stated often rabbinic literature someone appeals everyone listening to you have forgiveness to know if you know that your sins have been blotted out. Are you are right relationship with God. All of us of sin.

All of us going the wrong way the Lord has laid on him. Yeshua the Messiah iniquity of all my friends back with more questions presented by the Truth Network
