I observed final week how numerous Christian fundamentalist YouTube channels had uploaded movies claiming the Jews proclaimed a man known as Jizkiahu Ben David because the messiah. Right here is one such video.
Jew-haters far and vast have seized on to this story, primarily within the feedback sections of those movies, talking about him because the “anti-Christ.” Some, like antisemite and “Messianic” Steve Ben-Nun, have uploaded their very own movies parroting the story.
It appears that evidently this all originated from this video uploaded by a Jewish Spanish-speaking channel known as Punto Breslev – Estudios Bíblicos.
Whereas I have no idea Spanish, the person within the video was talking a few man in historical past known as Yizkiahu ben David who he argues has been one of the best candidate for Jewish messiah till now, and never a person who at the moment lives being introduced because the Jewish messiah. I do know this as a result of he put out a brand new video in English explaining this and rebutting the false declare movies.
I additionally know this for numerous different causes.
Firstly, in Judaism, there are specific necessities for the Jewish messiah, which embrace the next that haven’t been fulfilled:
- He should collect the Jewish individuals from exile and return them to Israel
- He should rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem
- He’ll rule at a time of world-wide peace
- He’ll rule at a time when the Jewish individuals will observe G-d’s commandments
- He’ll rule at a time when all individuals will come to acknowledge and serve one G-d
(These are, by the way in which, some the explanation why Jews don’t consider in Jesus as messiah)
So clearly, there could be no messiah immediately.
Secondly, you’d assume if we had anointed the brand new messiah it might be massive information. But there was no point out of that is within the Jewish press or by Rabbis.
Lastly, the movies claiming this Jizkiahu Ben David was introduced as messiah are exhibiting footage of a well known Rabbi known as R’ Shlomo Yehuda. Right here is a number of the footage of his go to to the Western Wall throughout Passover, being handed as proof he was anointed as messiah.
Crowds have gathered round him as a result of he’s well-known and revered. To paraphrase The Mandalorian, that is the way in which of Orthodox Jews.
So there you might have it: one other instance of how Jew-haters latch on to faux information so as to unfold vicious lies about us.
