What is the Talmud?

What is the Talmud?

Roy Blizzard III © 2013

What is the Talmud? You may have asked yourself this question? You may have also heard people say things like this; Who do you think started the UN? Rockefeller and Rothschild. It’s a Zionist backed institution and The U.N. is not your friend. It’s all to facilitate the One World Government (New World Order), THEIR World Order. Ever read the lies in the TALMUD?

So, 1) Just what is the Talmud? 2) Is it important for Christians to read it? 3) Does it have anything to do with Zionism, the New World Order or any other thing that may endanger you or your children?

To begin this is not going to be a long dissertation on the Talmud but a short writing to describe it and how to approach the subject of it. With that in mind, let me say that Yes I've read it both in English and in Hebrew/Aramaic and it has nothing to do with anything Zionist or otherwise unless you can't understand what you're reading and have been told what it says by some idiot who knows even less than you do.

The Talmud is a collection of Jewish commentary spanning almost 1,000 years that is describing how to apply certain religious rules and regulations in the Jewish community, both civil and criminal. It is very cryptic and abbreviated in form and for the most part indecipherable unless you are a person who has been trained in Jewish Studies and even then it is very difficult to understand. It consists of two parts one of which is called the Mishna or Oral Laws of the Jews and the Gemara or Commentary on that Oral Law.

The Oral Law was basically all other laws after the 10 Commandments (more properly translated as the 10 Statements) given to Moses on Mt. Sinai. Just for an example, say in the 10 Commandments God says Thou shalt not commit premeditated murder (it doesn’t say don’t kill). Immediately someone asks a question, “What is premeditated murder”? The Oral Law would go into great lengths talking about this issue.

But, for believers in Jesus, the fact is that Jesus quotes from and teaches much of the same teachings of the Talmud during the period of the Zugot – or pairs, the last of which were Hillel and Shammai, but of course you probably wouldn't know that unless you are able to decipher both the Talmud and the New Testament from within the Hebrew/Aramaic language group. Greek is worthless when studying virtually any Jewish writing other than the Septuagint or some manuscripts of the New Testament.

One thing that is critical for you to remember is that much of the later teachings of the Talmud as well as much within Judaism today are outgrowths of the Pharisaical Jewish response to the believers in Jesus and their movement from the first century onward. Remember, the Pharisees were about the only group (out of about 23) of Jews in power left standing after the Jewish revolts from about 66 CE to 235 CE. Much of their later discussions are not really relevant, but are there just to show the discussions that they were having and the difficulties trying to apply God’s Law to their community and that issue is still relevant for us today.

As far as much of the lies spread around on the internet by idiots and anti-Semitic and bigoted individuals, I'm not saying that the Rockefellers and Rothschilds aren’t bad people and aren’t probably conspiring towards a one world government, but they are not Jews by any stretch of the imagination as they follow nothing in the Bible and God’s teachings that would render them as a part of His Covenantal Movement.

Just because Hitler had some Jew in his woodpile didn't make him a Jew. Jew is not so much a "race" as a covenantal movement of the descendants of the people of the tribe of Judah who choose to follow YHWH - God. Just as Rahab the Harlot was welcomed into the Jewish Faith and became part of the lineage of Jesus, and most of the so called “lost ten tribes” were absorbed into Judah, we also must be welcomed into that covenantal movement of Jesus and unify with him and God in order to become a part of Jesus’ movement of Kingdom.

Remember Jesus was a Jew not a Baptist, so we must understand his concepts and precepts, not some bozo’s rantings that make no sense if you know Hebrew, Greek, Aramaic, Bible and Jewish Studies. Of course if you don’t then you are already in trouble because the “religions” you’ve probably been taught are rife with errors and packed with wolves seeking those they can devour and steal from.

      What?...No comments for all this time. You are much more knowledgeable than me with the history/ information that you cover here.

      I am humbled.

      In the event you ever read "Seeds from Heaven" (one of my novels) I would be interested in your thoughts as it touches on some of this, however in a manner that may either enthrall you or not. I have no idea how it would be received by you--however I do know you would understand why I wrote it more than most others who would read it for entertainment value. A Cardasian you are not.

      I like your photo and the hat. It works for me.
