What do Christians, the Torah, the Zohar, and Kaballah all have in Common?

A Hebrew Heritage... Many Christians are unaware of the significance of the influence of Constantine the Great on their faith, a faith that was once rooted in the Hebrew people. Most Christians have no idea where there religious beliefs and rituals have come from.

While most born again Christians claim to be devout followers of Christ and the bible, they have no idea how far off of The Way (Acts 9:2) - the new "church" that started after Jesus' ministry had begun - that they are.

Jesus, whose real name in Hebrew is Yahshua, had begun proclaiming things that caused His fellow Hebrew brothers and collective Jewish community, outrage. It was this growing rage toward Jesus, the leader of the newly forming Way, that led to His eventual crucifixion.

Prior to this, however, there were rituals, books, beliefs, and leaders of thought that had led the Jewish community. It was this community that had become outraged at the upset that this simple man, Jesus (Yahshua), was causing.

If you ask a typical Christian "What is the Talmud?", they're likely to give you a blank stare. Yet, it is one of the most utilized books that many of their Jewish "step-brothers" in Christ use today.

Christians today likely have heard of Kabballah, due to the publicity that Hollywood has given it, but most really know nothing about it except what they've heard through other's uninformed opinions. They know so little about it that most are also clueless about the Zohar, the book that goes with it.

It is this background of Jewish and Hebrew history, the Christian's true heritage, that has been buried beneath the Christian church today through the powerful religious influence of Constantine the Great, Sun-god worship, and his prevailing Roman empire. Today's "harlot church (modern Christianity) had started out innocent enough through Jesus, but was quickly swallowed up shortly after His death and resurrection by this powerful Roman influence. The Way had literally been hijacked!

The truth that had once began to emerge through Christ and His followers, had been forcefully and all but completely swept away leaving nearly every part of it hidden beneath a pile of rubble and ruins. Too many Christians complain about other religions without really knowing much about their own. Believing that they are on the 'true' path of life simply by being born again, they are ignorant of their own daily rituals and activities that they follow, which have come down through the generations. They continually make the same excuses over and over for Sunday worship, Easter and Christmas celebrations, etc.

Ishmael and his descendants, and the Islamic faith that arose out of their generation, have much more of their Hebrew heritage written into their religion. Yet they too, have gotten way off course. There is a great deal more to be learned, however, about the connection between modern Christianity, the Torah, the Zohar, and Kaballah.

In summary, it is critical for a true believer and follower of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Moses, to study the history and truth of their heritage and faith.

Well kaloomba the Torah is in the Christian Bible. It's often said that the Old Testament is revealed in the New Testament. The first Christians were Jews who recognized that Jesus Christ, the Messiah died and was resurrected not just for Jews but for everyone. The Talmud, the Zohar, and Kabballah all came about by Jews that did not believe that Jesus is who He is, God. The Talmud, the Zohar, and Kabballah all came about after the birth of Christianity so basically they have nothing to do with the heritage of Christianity. Besides the Talmud does not speak very highly of both Jesus and His mother. The Herod family, one of which took part in the persecution of John the Baptist as well as Jesus Christ were descended from Jacob's brother Esau (Edom), not of the twelve tribes. No doubt that is what Revelation 2:9 and 3:9 are referring to. Thanks but I'll pass. Mike

My first line in this hub is 'A Hebrew Heritage'. We all share the same HISTORY. Faiths were born OUT OF this background and the Christian faith is one of them.

The idea here is to get Christians to re-think all their beliefs and traditions and to learn exactly what it is they believe and why, especially when attempting to make arguments on behalf of Christ, the Messiah, and His original followers of the new walk that they used to refer to as 'The Way'.

We've been taught many lies down through the centuries as Christians, leaving most of us vulnerable and ignorant of the real and whole truth (until we learn it).

My studying the scriptures and history wasn't done on a whim and my new understanding came from many, many years studying, reading and research.

MakeMoney,

It's great to see you even searching..

Well written Kaloomba and hopefully you have opened some eyes with your hub. Even with facts as I try to provide in my articles, you find yourself up against the tremendous resistance of misguided and misled faith. The best you can do is keep providing them with the information and hope that someday they see the light.

I am a student of kabbalah and not Madonnas Kabbalah. I just wanted to say I come from christian roots and new something was missing and G-d landed me square in front of the wisdom of kabbalah. I LOVE this article !! also to correct Make Money, Kabbalah is as old as Abraham, pre-Christianity or any organized religion for that matter.

Thank you, Marcha...

I feel saddened that Make Money hasn't looked deeper into his own faith just as so many other Christains don't do today - and who simply listen to and believe what 'the Scholars' of today's Christianity teach. I'm sure he still observes Easter and Christmas along with them, too, but doesn't celebrate YHVH's TRUE holidays of Passover, Shavuot, Tabernacles, etc., never once having concerned himself with Leviticus 23. (Because, of course, many Christians today think the Old Testament has been 'done away with' and 'replaced' by the New one since that's what they've been taught).

As I said in my response to Make Money earlier, the idea behind this article is to stir people into STUDYING the full history and roots of their faith because few people ever do.. Which is why so many people are following after the 'highjacked faith' of today's Christianity, and not the real thing that began through a Hebrew 'Jewish' Rabbi two thousand years ago.

I do love your article. I am thinking Hebrew way for long time.

Just few comment. Constantine has not to be blamed since he just made equal Christianity to Pagan religion. He was not even Christian. He was baptized on the dead bad, by sprinkling with water by some priest. I hope he was saved.

The corruption of church started earlier. It happen when umbilical priesthood was reestablished and church clergy organisation took place.

Thanks for this hub. Jesus is My Lord.

I would like to add that not all what is common may be right.

I think the New Age is malignant.

Bless you.

Vladimir,

Thank you for your comments.. People MUST search history and culture for themselves in order to understand the scriptures of the HEBREW people if they are to 'follow after' the Jewish God.

You are wise to use critical thinking even in what I say as 'true'.. You are even wiser to search and study truth for yourself.


frankito 6 years ago

Yes. ALL the books speak the same:

How the Light comes into the world;

That Light becomes dimmed;

That dimmed Light calls out to God for help.

The Zohar, the New Testament, the Pistis Sophia, all speak of this. That's it.

Christians have a beautiful story of that process in Mary Magdalene (the dimmed Light) calling to the Christ (the Angel of the Light).

The Holy Family is Father, Mother, Son, Daughter. We are Nukva in exile. We are the shadow calling to the Son (Christ-Zer Anpin) for re-inclusion.

Thanks

Thank you Kaloomba for this article. I am a person who came to learn about Jesus through the Christian church two years ago. I called myself a "Christian" for some time but have recently changed that to simply "I love Jesus" for what he stood for and his teachings. What I am trying to say here, is that I am seeking the truth from the beginning. I'll be taking an intro to Judaism class at a synagogue starting at the end of this month. I am very interested the Hebrew roots and history. If you can suggest any websites or literary readings it will be greatly appreciated. Lastly, I too, am saddened at the lack of effort on the part of Christians to seek out their history and roots.

interesting...i have always for a while have been aware that the roman empire pulled off the biggest transforming act in history going from a military empire to hijacking christianity.. after all yashuas followers had been hunted down and executed..i,m particularly interested in the teaching of issac luria..ein sof and ayin make perfect sense to me as does meditation on the sacred name YHVH..their is nothing evil about this i often meditate..upwards through the sefirot with no ill effect..rather its leads to expansion and minimizing human ego

Was God the first anti-Semite?

In Exodus 32:7-10 God wants to consume/destroy the Israelites who offered human sacrifices of their children to Moloch. Not one of the first generation of Istealites that came out of Egypt were allowed into the Promised Land, not even Moses.

Jews NEVER talk about this HOLOCAUST of their children to Moloch, which is still taught in the Babylonian Talmud, TODAY!!!

Many people have no knowledge about the history of some of the celebrations they engage in, such as Christmas and Easter. What a shame..

The Lord Jesus Christ was crucified for proclaiming the I AM and not as a leader of a newly forming way.2000 years passed and many people still blind.

Okay, you piqued my interest. I was raised Catholic, had my own thoughts about everything in my early adulthood, especially about the divinity of Christ, and, now, I am a McGregor Baptist. My personal search for truth has led me to people and resources that have made me a "born again" Christian. Now I want to read your book list.

kaloomba 4 years ago Author

Well, Jack, because you have been seeking an ever deeping relationship with Christ, He has been providing you with deeper and deeper insight into who He truly is. He rewards those with a sincere heart who seek after the truth and a closer relationship with Him.

As I stated briefly in this short article about today's Christianity, even for the "saved, born again" believers, it is not the pure religion that most think it is. The insight you gain as you learn God's deeper truths is as stimulating as the insight that you first got from when you became "born again", but much more insightful - and down right fascinating!!

P.S. DO NOT turn Jewish, but gain insight into His kingdom through "Messianic" things. Just for starters, you might like to read "In His Own Words" by L. Grant Luton - and please read the Preface! (Also, Please feel free to click on my contact button above if you'd like to discuss things further).

Thank you,Kaloomba, for your kind words and suggestions. My reading list is growing and that's a good thing. I shall get L. Grant Luton's "In His Own Words" and read the Preface, as I always do with any book. I love learning what's behind the writing or the reason for making the movie, so to speak.

Well coming from a strong Jewish heritage from Israel and been a believer in Yeshua, which is HIS real name because yahshua is not hebrew. I can say that ignorance about the mysticism and the darkness which are in this compilation by the enlighten Rabbis from centuries does not have anithing to do with what Yeshua came here for. If you have a deep understanding about what the Talmud said about the messias and not about our Messiah you will understand that the Word of God is and will be the principal teaching and instruction of our live.

with grace
