Judaism believes that ….
….. Jesus is NOT the Son of God.
Islamism believes that ….
….. Jesus is NOT the Son of God….. But,
Christianism believes that ….
….. Jesus IS the Son of God.
The three major religions and other religious groups for this matter believe in a
God. But, it is quite strange to learn that Christianity is the only religion who believes in Jesus Christ. Definitely, the idea of the Son of God originated from an ancient source or specifically the egyptian beliefs, but suprisingly Jesus Christ was neither been mentioned ever in the old testament nor even in other holy scriptures outside christianity.
So the main questions: “Who added Jesus Christ in the new testament?” …. “Is Christ the antiChrist?” ….”Who are the Catholics?”…..” Is the Old Testament the antithesis of the New Testament?” …. Is Jesus really the Son of God?”.
In Matthew 26:64 Jesus the Christ admitted he was the son of man….And, in John 10:29-30 Jesus admitted he was God himself….However, there is no passage in the bible that speaks about Jesus admitting he is the Son of God.
In Matthew 3:17 and Mark 1:11, Jesus never admitted here that he was the son of god, but some “voice from heaven” (something supernatural) proclaimed the title. The voice could or could not be his divine father. But assuming it was his father, this does not mean he was the son. The words “father” and “son” may have double meanings like when someone prays to the divine god or Father.
Hebrew 7:3 does not pertain to Jesus but Melchizedek who was also believed to be the son of god.
John 1:1-14, where the verses are poetic in nature, is believed to be a part Christological hymn. These verses are simply testimony by john and not by god (This again can be possibly falsified).
All these verse show that Jesus himself never ever proclaimed that he is the son of god. It was the people that surrounds him; the Pharisees, his disciples, the soldiers, who labeled Jesus as the son of god. So there was no concrete evidence that Christ admitted he is the son of god.
Just like in Matthew 26:63 — “But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest said to him: I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us if thou be the Christ the Son of God.” ( the high priest asked him if he was the son of god).
I thought Jesus will admit from here that he is the son of god, but surprisingly reading the next verse below, HE DID NOT !
Matthew 26:64 — Jesus saith to him: Thou hast said it. Nevertheless I say to you, hereafter you shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of the power of God and coming in the clouds of heaven. (Jesus simply said “you said it, not me”).
It is true Jesus proclaimed God as his father, but this does not mean that he is the “parental or biological” father. This could be like someone who is praying to god. He might be saying “Father (which means god or jesus) forgive me for my sins ….” Or, when someone goes to the confessionary, one says “Blessed me father (which could mean priest or god) for I have sinned, ….”.
John 10:36 Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, ‘I am God’s Son’?
Here in this verse, Jesus is simply suggesting that he can be the Son of God and/or the Son of Man. Either Joseph is his father, or he is of divine descend.
In John 10:22-42, Jesus was simply saying what other people say about him. It was their impressions. Jesus did not declare he was the son of god but he simply reiterated what other people thought of him ( you said ….”I am the son of god?”)…..And take note ……his statement was in question form….Hence, no doubt…. he is a man and he is a god …. but not the son of god.
Romans 1:4…..He was “declared to be the Son of God with power …according to the Spirit of holiness…by the resurrection from the dead”…
There is no doubt that Jesus is man and god….However there is no verse in the bible that speaks Jesus admitted he is the son of god. Could it be because Jesus knew he IS NOT the son of god, and since he did not admit this title, even once in the bible, then obviously he, the church or the biblical writers, is hiding a dark secret about this man.
Who is this Man? Who is the Son of God?
He made blind men see, raised the dead and walked on water. Three miracles when interpreted literally could be taken to be true. But they can also be interpreted allegorically. The story of the blind men could be a lesson for people to see blessings surrounding them. The story of raising the dead could be interpreted as an awakening for those in a spiritual sleep. And the parable of walking on the water could be the power of will – that man can do things that are unusual or uncommon compared to the normal.
The title Son of God was deliberately attached as a label by the people that surround him and not by Jesus himself. Here are some more verses that support this claim.
Matthew 4:6 “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. The devil tempting Jesus.
Matthew 8:29 “What do you want with us, Son of God?” they shouted. The demons knew he is the Son of God.
Matthew 14:32-33 And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying “Truly you are the Son of God.”
Matthew 26:63-64 The high priest said to him, “I charge you under oath by the living God: Tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God.” “Yes, it is as you say, “Jesus replied.
Matthew 16:15-17 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but my Father in heaven.”
In Luke 10:21-22: Jesus was praising his god. He called this god as Lord of Heaven, The Father and not his father.
Matthew 7:21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.”
Matthew 10:32-33 “Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven. But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven.”
Matthew 11:27All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.
John 3:16 says ” For God so love the world, that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth on Him should not perish, but have ever lasting life “.
The story behind John 3:18 does not even speak that Jesus is the son of god. The story is a conversation between Jesus and Nicodemus where Jesus was pointing out here that god is sending his son to save the world.
In reading the bible, remember that these are personal accounts of the writers: The gospel according to John or the gospel according to Luke…..and not according to God or Jesus himself. Jesus never wrote the bible. They are simply personal accounts and interpretations written by ancient scribes. And these writers are simply telling the story of man name Jesus. They are simply story telling.
What does …. according to John……mean? Does this mean someone is writing about John’s accounts or it was john who is telling his own accounts?
The bible itself was translated several times from the time it was compiled into a single book. There are 50 biblical scholars commissioned by the Vatican church to study and translate the bible. They even discovered from their research that the gospel of John was quite different from the three synoptic gospels, Matthew, Mark and Luke. They said that John”s gospel was highly symbolic.
YAHWEH, a name for god, is derived from YHWH.
Scholars even said that this four letter word could not even be pronounced since they are simply letters without vowels and therefore could mean anything at all.
ELOHIM is a hebrew word which is plural for EL.
In genesis 1, translated to hebrew: “In beginning God”, the third word is ELOHIM which means Gods (plural of God). When the universe was being created there were TWO GODS at least working together.
From The Women’s Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets:
Yahweh, Hebrew name of God, was a vocalization of the Tetragrammaton. It was also rendered Yah, Yahu, Jahveh, Jahi, or Jehovah, and has been related to the name of the Canaanite moon deity Yareah, possibly a female or androgynous form. A male Yahweh was married to the Canaanite mother goddess Anat at Elephantine. …….Jahi was also a very ancient Goddess, appearing in Persian scriptures as the amker and seducer of the first man. Like many other Creatresses, she mated with the primal serpent; she also gave the menstrual “blood of life” to Eve.
Elohim, Hebrew plural word meaning “the goddesss and gods,” though every time it appeared in a Bible text it was translated simply “God”. In the original manuscripts of the book of Genesis, Yahweh was only one of the elohim. Sometimes the singular form was taken as a name, e.g. the Phoenician bull-god called simply El, “the god.” Medieval wizards thought Elohim was one of the magical secret names of God; or, at times, it was taken to be the name of a devil.
Also, Elohim could be interpreted as God The father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Faith groups usually pray to the Holy Spirit during baptismal which signifies devotion to the almighty father. They pray to Jesus on christmas in celebration of his birth. They even pray to Saint Mary, Mother of Jesus during Immaculate Conception feast. Although Christians claimed that they worship only One God, in reality they actually worship several gods- both immortals and mortals alike.
In Leviticus 24:13-16 – If you deny one of the gods or immortals you are committing blasphemy and blasphemers are stoned to death…..In Matthew 12:31-32 – it is worst if you deny the Holy Spirit. God will not forgive you ….EVER.
Allah, is an Arab name of God, specifically, a desert moon deity, later brought forth into monotheistic by Muhammad.
All these names of god have one thing in common. God is all knowing, meaning intelligent. If this is the case, do you think God will bow down to a less intelligent specie? In other words, if God wants to hide himself from us by being MYSTERIOUS, do you think a less intelligent creature like us can solve his mystery? Now assuming man can, what is his motive? In the first place he is the one who created us, so what’s the big deal? It seems God still has some types of needs. What is it? Love?
Let us look at the bible.
The Old Testament vs. The New Testament:
The bible is not a single book. It is made up of several books bounded together under one cover and bears a single title. It is a collection of different books by different authors written in Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic. It can be read literally, allegorically, anagogically and morally.
The old testament, which is made up of 46 books, was written in Hebrew and some parts of the books were originally written in Aramaic. The books in the new testament, 27 books, were all composed in Greek.
The Hebrew people, particularly the jewish who believes in Judaism, recognizes only 39 books which were divided into three major categories: The Law, The Prophets and The Writings. The first five books, which are referred to as the Pentateuch or Torah, are generally recognized to include materials from at least four different sources: Yahwist, Elohist, Deuteronomist and Priestley. The Torah, a prophetic book the way the Koran is to Islam, the Avesta to Zoroastrians, Adi Granth to Sikhs, and other ancient writings were compiled as a single scripture and became know as the Old Testament.
On the other hand, the Roman Catholics and Orthodox Christians, recognizes 7 more books on their bible. These books are: Judith, Wisdom, Ecclesiasticus, Baruch, Tobit and Maccabbes 1 & 2. Protestant Christians recognizes the seven as the “apocryphal” books. The Catholic Church also recognizes oral tradition and divine revelation through the biblical text or scriptures. On the other hand, Protestant Reformists insisted only on the religion of the bible and disregarding oral tradition. The New Testament is not part of the Jewish Bible and should be perceived as a separate scripture in itself just like the OT as a separate scripture too.
However, it was Constantine’s (who was a Mithraist before he converted to Christianity) decision to select which books should be in the Bible. This event was the Council of Nicea back in 325 AD which involved a political, NOT religious, argument over the nature of Jesus. The Old Testament and the New Testament were combined as one to what we now describe as The Bible.
However, Judaism, where the old testament originated has a different theological views compared to Christianism. Jews do not believe that Jesus is the son of god. It is the Catholics specifically who added Jesus in the new testament. Here are the differences between the old testament and the new testament.
Books of the Old Testament:
Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 Samuel, 2 Samuel, 1 Kings, 2 Kings, 1 Chronicles,2 Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther, Job, Psalm, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations, Ezekiel, Daniel, Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi.
Books of the New Testament:
Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Acts, Romans, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 Thessalonians, 2 Thessalonians, 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, Titus, Hebrews, Philemon, James, 1 Peter, 2 Peter, 1 John, 2 John, 3 John, Jude, Revelation.
Judaism, where the Old Testament (original Holy Scripture) originated, recognizes the Reality of God and the basic moral virtues of justice, equality and righteousness. The book acknowledges the coming of the Messiah as a human being and not divine. Its central faith is to follow what God wants them To Do – to be righteous at all times. It also speaks that God so loves the world, that he gave the word: The Law and its Covenant – that will bond all people together. It teaches redemption and not salvation. The Grand Promise of God is atonement and forgiveness at the end of time. It teaches that the existence of a God can’t be accurately conceived, described or pictured. It also teaches to share huge amount of time in doing good works. To Judaism this is the equivalent of spirituality. Judaism supreme value is Life. Judaism believes that a home without children is a home without blessings. The sanctity of marriage is not in the reproduction. It is the bond that connects between two people, the world and the next generations. Children were urged to grow into “good deeds”, to honor and to serve God and only God.
Christianism, on the other hand, which is considered as followers of Jesus the Christ, recognizes the Reality of Jesus, his miracles and his teachings. Its book, the New Testament (a separate book, implicitly an antithesis) which was eventually added to the Old Testament of the Jews, acknowledges the messiah as both human and divine. Its central faith is to follow what the Church or its congregations or denominations want them To Believe and that is “God loves the world, that he “gave his only begotten son Jesus the Christ”. It teaches salvation, which simply means that Christians will be saved from their sins by the coming of the “Son of God” to earth. They also believe in Revelation which obviously only exists in the New Testament. Christianity has always been motivated by hopes of rewards and fear of punishment. They dedicate huge time in collecting tithes and enticing new members. Christianity supreme value is the afterlife because Jesus promised them this. Christianity believes that children have the right to leave their father and mother. The sanctity of marriage is in the reproduction. Children were urged to grow into faith, not deeds; and to worship God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Ghost, Mary Immaculate, Joseph the carpenter, and all saints and even Mother Theresa.
Is Jesus Christ the antiChrist?
Now if Judaism and Chrstianism have opposite or contradicting views about faith, then which one is the true religion, the true church or the true God? Is Jesus really the Christ or the Messiah or is he the AntiChrist? Are we the victims manipulated by the political agenda of the Catholic Church? Who are the Catholics?
Gregory who invented the calendar is a catholic. Ever thought where BC and AD came from? Ignatius who invented the word Christianity is a catholic. Constantine who introduced catholicism was converted catholic. Rome, where the pope resides, is a Catholic nation. Latin, which is the primary language of Rome, was used to translate the Old Testament, added the New Testament on the authority of the church and included Jesus as the Son of God. The Society of Jesuits, which is catholics, spread Catholicism all over the globe. We know today that Catholicism is the major religion in the world. And although the State and Church are separated by law, the Catholic Church still has a hand in any world affairs. Catholics dominate the world.
The pope who is the chief head of the Catholic Church always carries the title “VICARIUS FILII DEI” which is the Latin for “Vicar of the Son of God”. This title implies that the person seated in the “ancient Vatican” is telling us that he is the Son of God”. Just like the kings of ancient Egypt, who were normally called Sons of God, the “pope” or “ancient religious priests” would also like to acquire the reputation of this prestigious Title.
Vicarius means to substitute or to replace in Latin. So when we say ” Vicar of the Son of God” we are saying” The substitute of the son of god” or we are replacing the son of god, who could be either the pope, the church or both.
If we apply the principle behind the **Intelligence Konstant,, we can prove where did the idea of the “Son of God” originated from.
Just like the ipod, iphone, ipad, the title “son of god” was also a fashion on those days. The rich and the poor alike wanted to be gods. Kings and peasants alike, including a carpenter son, probably dreamt to be god, a god or envisioned to have the power of god. The title “Son of God” was always attached to names of Kings during ancient times even before the bible existed. This simply shows that the title did not come from the minds of those people who wrote the bible but it originated from the Egyptians vocabulary.
Ancient Egyptians kings were dedicated very much to their gods and goddesses – the natural and the unseen. And for every natural force they encounter, a unique god was attached to it. Their “religion” also includes animals – bulls, cows, baboons, cats and snakes. The head or body of these animals was incorporated in some of the sculptures or statues of most kings and Queens – half animal half human. Over a period of time, the connotations of gods became human. Imhotep, the chief architect of the step pyramid, became a local god venerated as the patron of scribes. This example shows that – Man became “God”.
Re, the sun god, came to assume a central role in the Egyptian religion. The pharaohs started to call themselves as “the Son of Re” or the bible equivalent: “the Son of God”. From here, we can see that the idea of the son of god actually originated from ancient Egyptian, where the title is synonymous to power. And because of power, aside from the kings and queens who thought they were gods and goddesses, high priests and clergies dreamed to become one likewise. The birth of the Roman Catholic Church is the fulfillment of such dream.
The “ancient” Vatican was built on top of the central Mithraic temple in the Roman Empire – ordered by Constantine who is a mitraist. This simply shows that Christianity grew out of a mixture of Mithraism, Judaism, Manichaeism, Bogomilism, Catharism and other religious sects. Surprisingly, Catharism referred the old Catholic Church, which was circled with fraud and trickery, as the Church of the wolves. They even believe in the duality of good and evil from where they deduced the concept that christians are actually worshipping satan. The old church even engineered ancient technology to reinforce the faith of believers by rigging statues of Christ either crying with blood or speaking in different tongues. Whatever the Church is up to, it is now up to the religious or spiritual followers to believe or not to believe.
