Orthodox Jewish Scholar’s Profound Words about Yeshua

Orthodox Jewish Scholar’s
Profound Words about Yeshua
James Scott Trimm

In 2012 Orthodox Jewish scholar Daniel Boyarin wrote a book “The Jewish Gospels; The Story of the Jewish Christ“.  This book takes a non-hostile approach to Yeshua and his original Jewish followers.  Daniel Boyarin is not only a noted historian of religion, he has also been called “one of the two or three greatest rabbinic scholars in the world.”  He holds dual United States and Israeli citizenship. Trained as a Talmudic scholar, in 1990 he was appointed Professor of Talmudic Culture, Departments of Near Eastern Studies and Rhetoric, University of California, Berkeley, a post which he still held as recently as 2012.

Boyarin opens his book with some very interesting words:

If there is one thing that Christians know about their religion, it is that it’s not Judaism.  If there’s one thing Jews know about their faith, it is that it’s not Christianity. If there is one thing that both groups know about this “double not,” it’s that Christians believe in the Trinity and the incarnation of Christ (the Greek word for Messiah) and that Jews don’t, that Jews keep kosher and Christians don’t.

If only things were that simple.  In this book, I’m going to tell a very different story, a story of a time when Jews and Christians were much more mixed up with each other than they are now, when there were many Jews who believed in something quite like the Father and the Son and even in something like the incarnation of the Son in the Messiah, and when followers of Jesus kept kosher as Jews, and accordingly a time in which the difference between Judaism and Christianity just didn’t exist as it does now.

While by now almost everyone, Christian and non-Christian, is happy enough to refer to Jesus, the human, as a Jew, I want to go a step beyond that. I wish us to see that Christ too–the divine Messiah–is a Jew. Christology, or the early ideas about Christ, is also a Jewish discourse and not–until much later–an anti-Jewish discourse at all. Many Israelites at the time of Jesus were expecting a Messiah who would be divine and come to earth in the form of a human. Thus the basic underlying thoughts from which both the Trinity and the incarnation grew are there in the very world into which Jesus was born and in which he was first written about in the Gospels of Mark and John (1-2)
(Daniel Boyarin, The Jewish Gospels; The Story of the Jewish Christ; 2012, p. 1, 5-6)

Of course I believe that Boyarin uses the term “Christian” too loosely here (the original followers of Yeshua identified themselves as Jews and not as “Christians,”) however it is very interesting that such an important Orthodox Jewish scholar is now willing to admit that not only were Yeshua’s original followers Kosher eating and Torah observant, but that the doctrine of the Deity of Messiah itself was of Jewish origin, was held by the original Jewish followers of Yeshua from the very beginning, and has been rejected by Rabbinic Judaism since the first century in a reactionary manner!

The “Jesus” Judaism has Rejected

In coming years you will see many Jewish people embracing Yeshua as the Messiah.  (In fact it has already begun).  But the Yeshua that they accept will be the real Yeshua and not the Torahless “Jesus” that Christendom has adopted from pagan sources.

The Jewish people know that an anti-Torah Messiah is no Messiah at all, they know better than to accept the rank paganism attached to Gentile Christianity.

As I have been saying for years, I am personally aware of a great many Orthodox Jews (even Rabbis) who already know that Yeshua is the Messiah, but are not yet prepared to reveal this information to the world.  One of these told me that he is waiting until “the right time”. I am humbled by the fact that this ministry is on the cutting edge of this great last days restoration.

The Jewish people will also come to realize that the books known as the “New Testament” (More correctly called the Ketuvim Netzarim, the “Writings of the Nazarenes”) in their original Hebrew and Aramaic rather than their Greek translations, are as much a “Jewish Book” as the Tanak (“Old Testament”).

  1. I live in southern NJ Margate/ Ventnor City.. I live among many Orthodox and non Orthodox Jews. If you know of anyone in this area that Knows their Messiah Yeshua please I would love to meet with them.. Yeshua removed the Veil that was over my eyes 11 years ago about the Torah starting with the Sabbath and has revealed to me that I’m of the House of Israel not the house of Judah. He has been showing me so very much truth and the deception that has totally blinded the Christian church. I eat clean keep Shabbat celebrate the Feasts wear Titzits. I keep Torah the best way that I have been shown by Yeshua… I’m not the only one thousands have left the church because the Messiah has been removing that veil from their eyes and I was also revealed to them that they are of the House of Israel and are keeping Torah as well. Nobody but Messiah revealed this to us . So for the past 11 years I personally know and some people have said they have known for longer People from all over the world are coming back to God /Yehovah and His Torah and it’s Messiah removing the veil and revealing their true identity after it was lost living amongst the gentiles after the Assyrians took our ancestors captive and scattered all over the world. We were the lost sheep of the house of Israel and when Yeshua Returns He will bring us back together with the house of Judah restored back into one kingdom. Something Prophetic has been happening and still more are coming out of the church and Jews are also coming to Yeshua. Please if you know anyone close by to me and my wife that we can talk with share with it would really be a blessing.. My name is Michael Bannon my last name should be Narr but that’s a different story.. I have been given both knowledge and understanding of The Hebrew Scriptures including the New Testament which is pointing us back to the Beginning of the Bible and Yeshua is teaching us how to walk out the Torah how to live a Righteous Torah obeyed life which basically is to how to live a Righteous, Holy, loving life unto God YHVH and our Neighbors. Satan has deceived the best and the entire world just like the Bible said. This up an coming solar and in April is a sign we are so close to the time of Jacob’s trouble the great tribulation and it just might begin sometime during any of The Feasts…The Feasts are all about Yeshua and the plan of Salvation/Restoration.
