JESUS WAS NOT A Jew
H. Freedman, Jewish Historian - Researcher - Scholar.
From "Common Sense", p. 2-1-53 and 5-1-59
"Christians have been duped by the unholiest
hoax in all history, by so-called Jews. This is considered their
most effective weapon."
"This 'big lie' technique is brainwashing United States
Christians into believing that Jesus Christ was "King of
the Jews", in the sense that so-called 'Jews' today call
themselves 'Jews'. This reference was first made in
English translations of the Old and New Testaments, centuries
before the so-called Jews highjacked the word 'Jew' in the
18th century A.D. to palm themselves off on the Christian
world as having a kinship with Jesus Christ. This
alleged kinship comes from the myth of their common ancestry
with the so-called 'Jews' of the Holy Land in the Old
Testament history, a fiction based on fable."
"American Christians little suspect they are being
brainwashed twenty-four hours of every day over television
and radio, by newspapers and magazines, by motion pictures
and plays, by books, by political leaders in office and
seeking office, by religious leaders in their pulpits and
outside their churches, by leaders in the field of education
inside and outside their curricular activities, and by all
leaders in business, professions and finance, whose economic
security demands that they curry the favor of so-called
"Jews" of historic Khazar ancestry. Unsuspecting
Christians are subjected to this barrage from sources they
have little reason to suspect. Incontestable facts
supply the unchallengeable proof of the historic accuracy
that so-called "Jews" throughout the world today of
eastern European origin are unquestionably the historic
descendants of the Khazars, a pagan Turko-Finn ancient
Mongoloid nation deep in the heart of Asia, according to
history, who battled their way in bloody wars about the 1st
century B.C. into eastern Europe where they set up their
Khazar kingdom. For some mysterious reason the history
of the Khazar kingdom is conspicuous by its absence
from history courses in the schools and colleges.
"The historic existence of the Khazar kingdom of
so-called "Jews", their rise and fall, the
permanent disappearance of the Khazar kingdom as a nation
from the map of Europe, and how King Bulan and the Khazar
nation in about 740 A.D. became so-called "Jews" by
conversion, were concealed from American Christians by
censorship imposed by so-called "Jews", of historic
Khazar ancestry, upon all U.S.A. media of mass communications
directed by them. Then in 1945 this author gave nation-wide
publicity to his many years intensive research into the
"facts of life" concerning Khazars. The disclosures
were sensational and very effective but apparently angered
so-called "Jews" who have continued to vent their
spleen upon this author since then solely for that reason.
Since 1946 they have conducted a vicious smear campaign
against him, seeking thus to further conceal these facts, for
obvious reasons. What have they to fear from the truth?
"In an original 1903 edition of the Jewish Encyclopedia
in New York's Public Library, and in the Library of Congress,
Volume IV, pages 1 to 5 inclusive, appears a most comprehensive
history of the Khazars. Also in the New York Public Library are
327 books by the world's greatest historians and other sources
of reference, in addition to the Jewish Encyclopedia,
dealing with Khazar history, and written between the 3rd A.D.
and 20th centuries by contemporaries of the Khazars and by
modern historians on that subject."
Jesus was a 'Judean', not a Jew.
During His lifetime, no persons were described as "Jews"
anywhere. That fact is supported by theology, history and
science. When Jesus was in Judea, it was not the "homeland"
of the ancestors of those who today style themselves "Jews".
Their ancestors never set a foot in Judea. They existed at
that time in Asia, their "homeland", and were known as
Khazars. In none of the manuscripts of the original Old or
New Testament was Jesus described or referred to as a "Jew".
The term originated in the late eighteenth century as an
abbreviation of the term Judean and refers to a resident of
Judea without regard to race or religion, just as the term
"Texan" signifies a person living in Texas.
In spite of the powerful propaganda effort of the so-called
"Jews", they have been unable to prove in recorded history
that there is one record, prior to that period, of a race
religion or nationality, referred to as "Jew". The religious
sect in Judea, in the time of Jesus, to which self-styled
"Jews" today refer to as "Jews", were known as "Pharisees".
"Judaism" today and "Pharisaism" in the time of Jesus are
Jesus abhorred and denounced "Pharisaism"; hence the words,
"Woe unto you Scribes and Pharisees, Hypocrites, Ye
Serpents, Ye Generation of Vipers".
JESUS WAS NOT A Jew
Many denominational Christians and even church leaders are under
the mistaken belief that Jesus was a Jew. But nothing could be
further from the truth.
Judea and Galilee were two separate states and political entities,
as illustrated on the map of Palestine in the time of our Saviour
in your Bible. Jesus Himself was not a Jew (Judean) or resident of
Judea, He was a Galilean or resident of Galilee (Matthew 26:69;
John 7:41), and a Judahite or descendent of the Tribe of Judah.
The Judeans of prominence were not of the Tribe of Judah, but of
Edomites. Pilate was being ironic when he wrote the sign "Jesus
of Nazareth, King of the Judeans" for the Cross (John 19:19). That
is, "the Galilean who was King of the Judeans," as in "Queen
Victoria of England, Empress of India." Jesus grew up in Nazareth
in Galilee. His disciples were fishermen from the Sea of Galilee.
And although He visited Jerusalem, he spent most of His life in
his home country of Galilee. John 7:1, "After this Jesus stayed
in Galilee; for He could not walk in Judea, because the Jews sought
to kill him." His followers were constrained "for fear of
the Jews" (John 7:13, 19:38, 20:19).
Why was this?
Psalm 83:3 says God's elect are "hidden" or protected ones, and
that they are under attack from a coalition of evil groups led by
Edom. Who was Edom?
Esau, the brother of the patriarch Jacob, became the ancestor of
the people called Edom, or Idumea.
The Antiquities of the Jews by Flavius Josephus, XIII ix 1;
XV vii 9 instructs us: John Hyrcanus forcibly assimilated the
Edomites as a national group and they became "Jews" in about 120BC.
The Jewish historian Josephus, who lived just after the time of
Christ, wrote, "They [Edom] were hereafter no other than Jews'. The
Jewish scholar Cecil Roth in his Concise Jewish Encyclopedia
(1980) says on page 154, "John Hyrcanus forcibly converted [Edom]
to Judaism. From then on they were part of the Jewish people. In the
Talmud the name of Edom was applied to Christian Rome, and was then
used for Christianity in general".
Terrible judgements against Edom are made in most of the prophecies
of the Old Testament. For instance, Isaiah 34, 63, Jeremiah 49, and
the entire book of Obadiah.
Isaiah 63:1-6, "Who is this coming from Edom . . . in garments
stained with crimson? It is I [the Lord] who speak in righteousness
and am mighty to save."
"Why are your garments red, as if you had trodden the winepress?"
"I have trodden the winepress alone: and of the people there was none
to help Me. In My anger I trod them down, trampled them in My wrath.
Their blood splattered My garments, and all My clothes are stained.
For the day of vengeance is in My heart, and the year of My redeemed
has come. . . I will tread down the people in My anger, and bring
their blood upon the ground".
These verses refer to Revelations chapter 19:11-21, when the Word of
God destroys His enemies: "And I saw heaven opened, and behold a
white horse: and He that sat upon him was called Faithful and True. .
. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns,
and He had a Name written that no man knew but Himself. And He was
clothed with a vesture dipped in blood, and His Name is called The
Word of God. . . and He trod the winepress of God’s fierce anger".
Jehovah of the Old Testament "hated Esau (Edom), against whom He
has indignation forever" (Malachi 1:2-4). If Jesus will
destroy Edom when He returns, then Edom is present today, and
obviously evil, anti-Christian, and anti-Semitic.
The Edomite, Antipater, became the Procurator of Judea in 47BC. Ten
years later his son Herod actually became "king of the Jews,"
initiating the Edomite dynasty which ruled Palestine under Roman
authority for over a hundred years. The Edomite assimilation opened the
way for the virtual takeover along the lines predicted by Ezekiel and
stimulus for an influx of population from the arid country of Edom into
the more hospitable environment of Judea, an influx obviously encouraged
for political reasons by the ruling Herodian dynasty. Edomites would have
been appointed to the most influential positions, in order to extend and
consolidate Edomite authority over the land and its people. Herod became
notorious for his massacre of infant boys two years old and undger," a
supernaturally inspired attempt on the life of Christ (Matthew 2:16).
Herod's son Herod Antipas, continuing the work, and was responsible for
the gruesome murder of John the Baptist (Matthew 14:6-12).
Christ demonstrated a very real antipathy towards the people called Jews,
in Bibles published after about 1776, but who would be more accurately
described as Judeans, or residents of the Edomite-dominated territory of
Judea. Jesus said to the Jews "You do not believe because you are not
of My sheep" (John 10:24-27). "I was only sent to the lost sheep
of the House of Israel" (Matthew 15:24). In fact, Christ referred to
"those Jews (or residents of Judea regardless of religion, race or
color) who believed on him," as "of their father the devil"
for although they were children of Abraham, they were not children of
Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and heirs of the blessing of Abraham, nor did
they have the faith of Abraham, and were in all probability descendants
of Abraham, Isaac and Esau (John 8: 31,44). In contrast, Jesus instructed
His disciples - who were from Galilee of the Gentiles, not Judea (Acts 1:11;
2:7) - to pray to <="" i=""> And in Revelation
2:9 and 3:9, Jesus speaks of "those who say they are Jews and are not,
but are the synagogue of Satan".
The Jews shouted "Crucify Him!" (John 19:15); "His blood be on us
and on our children" (Matthew 27:25). In an appropriate turn about, when
Jesus returns, their blood will stain His own garments. The spiritual
leaders of the Jews were the Pharisees, who not surprisingly were associated
with the (Edomite) Herodians (Matthew 22:15-16; Mark 3:6; 12:13). Jesus
repeatedly condemned the Pharisees as "hypocrites" (Matthew 15:7;
22:18; 23:13,15,23,25,27-27). He also called them "serpents, the
offspring of vipers" (Matthew 3:7; 12:34; 23:33).
"Jesus spoke to the crowds only in parables" (Matthew 13:10-17). Why
was this? Many nominal churches and Sunday schools teach that Jesus used
parables to make His teachings clearer. But all four Gospels say the opposite.
When Jesus was asked why He spoke to them in parables, He replied "Because
it is given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to
them it is not given" (Matthew 13:10-11; Mark 4:11-12; Luke 8:9-10;
John 12:37-44). Brother Branham simply said, Jesus spoke in parables to
thin down the crowds.
Jesus told "those Jews who believed in Him . . . You are of your father
the devil, and lust for what is forbidden. He was a murderer from the
beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him . . .
as he is a liar and the father of lies" (John 8:31-44). This characteristic
is confirmed by the dictionary definition of the verb jew .
But do Jews ever come up with such brazenly audacious lies, lies so enormous
in scope and implication as to qualify as "chutzpah," so admired by Jews?
Norman G. Finkelstein of the City University of New York says:
"The Holocaust has proven to be an indispensable ideological weapon. Through
its deployment, one of the world’s most formidable military powers, with a
horrendous human rights record, has cast itself as a ‘victim’ state, and the
most successful ethnic group in the United States has likewise acquired
victim status. Considerable benefits accrue to this specious victimhood –
in particular, immunity to criticism, however justified" (Finkelstein, The
Holocaust Industry (2000) published by Verso, p. 3).
In other words, Finkelstein exposes the HYPOCRISY.
Some further quotes:
"In an authoritative study, Leonard Dinnerstein reported: Sixty thousand Jews
. . . walked out of the concentration camps. Within a week more than 20,000 of
them had died." But ‘As it entered into negotiations with Germany [just two
years ago, in 1999], the Holocaust industry demanded compensation for 135,000
still living former (camp inmates).’
On page 83 he notes that ‘The Israeli Prime Minister’s office recently put the
number of "living Holocaust survivors" at nearly a million.’ Finkelstein
exposes the LIES.
On page 127 he further notes ‘If 135,000 former Jewish slave laborers are still
alive today, some 600,000 must have survived the war. That’s at least a
half-million more than standard estimates. . . If Jews only constituted 20% of
the surviving camp population and, as the Holocaust industry implies, 600,000
Jewish inmates survived the war, then fully 3 million inmates in total must
have survived. By the Holocaust industry’s reckoning, concentration camp
conditions couldn’t have been that harsh at all; in fact, one must suppose a
remarkably high fertility and remarkably low mortality rate. . . If, as the
Holocaust industry suggests, many hundreds of thousands of Jews survived, the
Final Solution couldn’t have been so efficient after all – exactly what
Holocaust deniers argue" (pp. 127-8).
"Both my father and my mother were survivors of the Warsaw ghetto and the
Nazi concentration camps. . . One of my father’s lifelong friends was a
former inmate with him in Auschwitz, a seemingly incorruptible left-wing
idealist who on principle refused German compensation after the war.
Eventually he became a director of the Israeli Holocaust museum, Yad Vashem.
Reluctantly and with genuine disappointment, my father finally admitted that
even this man had been corrupted by the Holocaust industry, tailoring his
beliefs for power and profit. As the rendering of the Holocaust assumed ever
more absurd forms, my mother liked to quote (with intentional irony) Henry
Ford: "History is bunk." (ibid. p. 7).
"The Holocaust proved to be the perfect weapon for deflecting criticism of
Israel" (ibid p. 30).
"Much of the literature on Hitler’s Final Solution is worthless as scholarship.
Indeed, the field of Holocaust studies is replete with nonsense, if not sheer
fraud." (p. 55).
"Given the nonsense that is turned out daily by the Holocaust industry, the
wonder is that there are so few skeptics". (p. 68).
"Annual Days of Remembrance of the Holocaust are a national event. All 50
states sponsor commemorations, often in state legislative chambers. . . Seven
major Holocaust museums dot the American landscape. The centerpiece of this
memorialization is the United States Holocaust museum in Washington. . .
[This] museum’s annual budget is $50 million, of which $30 million is
federally subsidized." (p. 72). (This is in spite of the fact that, as he
points out on page 32, per capita Jewish income in the US is almost double
that of non-Jews).
"With a reelection campaign looming, Jimmy Carter initiated the [US Holocaust
Museum] project to placate Jewish contributors and voters, galled by the
president’s recognition of the "legitimate rights" of Palestinians.’ (p. 73).
Finkelstein exposes the SWINDLE, a word formerly most often associated with
"The Holocaust" is an ideological representation of the Nazi holocaust. Like
most ideologies, it bears a connection, if tenuous, with reality. The
Holocaust is not an arbitrary, but rather an internally coherent construct.
Its central dogmas sustain significant political and class interests."
(p. 3). And:
"The Holocaust may yet turn out to be the "greatest robbery in the history
of mankind". . . The Holocaust industry has clearly gone berserk." (p.
Is this evaluation fair?
Have a look at a typical account by one of the seemingly endless number
of survivors: Olga Lengyel’s Five Chimneys: a woman survivor’s true story
of Auschwitz (Granada/Ziff-Davis, 1947, 1972).
The blurb on the cover of the book quotes the New York Herald-Tribune:
"Passionate, tormenting". Albert Einstein, the promoter of the US
construction of the bombs used at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, is quoted as
offering "You have done a real service by letting the ones who are now
silent and most forgotten (sic) speak."
"After June, 1943, the gas chamber was reserved exclusively for Jews and
Gypsies. . . Three hundred and sixty corpses every half-hour, which was all
the time it took to reduce human flesh to ashes, made 720 per hour, or
17,280 corpses per twenty-four hour shift. And the ovens, with murderous
efficiency, functioned day and night. However, one must also reckon the
death pits, which could destroy another 8,000 cadavers a day. In round
numbers, about 24,000 corpses were handled each day. An admirable
production record, one that speaks well for German industry." (Paperback
edition, pp. 80-81). [No trace of any remains of or in ‘death pits’ has
This implies almost 100,000 corpses per four working days, or a million
in 40 days, or six million in 240 days (eight months).
Could this claim be a misprint?
Kitty Hart, in spite of her name, a Jewish survivor born in Poland, fully
confirms these figures:
"Working around the clock, the four units together could dispose of about
18,000 bodies every twenty-four hours, while the open pits coped with a
further 8,000 in the same period." (p. 118; Return to Auschwitz - paperback
edition by Granada (1981, 1983).
According to the cover blurb, "The subject of the award-winning Yorkshire
television documentary of the same name." "Both engaging and harrowing . .
. an important addition to the growing holocaust literature, very little
of which conveys so courageously both the daily torment and the will to
survive" – Martin Gilbert, The Times.
Martin Gilbert, indefatigable Jewish campaigner on behalf of the ‘Holocaust’
and biographer of Winston Churchill, adds to the rich flavour and makes his
own numerical claims, certainly not without chutzpah:
In his book Auschwitz and the Allies (1981) he states:
"The deliberate attempt to destroy systematically all of Europe’s Jews was
unsuspected in the spring and early summer of 1942: the very period during
which it was at its most intense, and during which hundreds of thousands
of Jews were being gassed every day at Belzec, Chelmo, Sobibor and
Treblinka." (p. 26).
If we assume a minimum figure of 200,000 per day, this amounts to say one
million over a five-day working week, or 6 million in six weeks, and this
does not include the truly awe-inspiring claims for Auschwitz put forward
by Hart and Lengyel with Gilbert’s blessing.
A detailed forensic examination of the site of the wartime Treblinka camp,
using sophisticated electronic ground penetrating radar, has found no
evidence of mass graves there.
For six days in October 1999, an Australian team headed by Richard Krege,
a qualified electronics engineer, carried out an examination of the soil at
the site of the former Treblinka II camp in Poland, where, Holocaust
historians say, more than half a million Jews were put to death in gas
chambers and then buried in mass graves.
According to the Encyclopedia of the Holocaust (1997), for example,
"a total of 870,000 people" were killed and buried at Treblinka between
July 1942 and April 1943. Then, between April and July 1943, the hundreds
of thousands of corpses were allegedly dug up and burned in batches of
2,000 or 2,500 on large grids made of railway ties.
Krege's team used an $80,000 Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) device, which
sends out vertical radar signals that are visible on a computer monitor.
GPR detects any large-scale disturbances in the soil structure to a normal
effective depth of four or five meters, and sometimes up to ten meters.
(GPR devices are routinely used around the world by geologists,
archeologists, and police.) In its Treblinka investigation, Krege's team
also carried out visual soil inspections, and used an auger to take
numerous soil core samples.
The team carefully examined the entire Treblinka II site, especially the
alleged "mass graves" portion, and carried out control examinations of the
surrounding area. They found no soil disturbance consistent with the burial
of hundreds of thousands of bodies, or even evidence that the ground had
ever been disturbed. In addition, Krege and his team found no evidence of
individual graves, bone remains, human ashes, or wood ashes.
"From these scans we could clearly identify the largely undisturbed
horizontal stratigraphic layering, better known as horizons, of the soil
under the camp site," says the 30-year old Krege, who lives in Canberra.
"We know from scans of grave sites, and other sites with known soil
disturbances, such as quarries, when this natural layering is massively
disrupted or missing altogether." Because normal geological processes are
very slow acting, disruption of the soil structure would have been
detectable even after 60 years, Krege noted.
While his initial investigation suggests that there were never any mass
graves at the Treblinka camp site, Krege believes that further work is
still called for.
"Historians say that the bodies were exhumed and cremated toward the end
of the Treblinka camp's use in 1943, but we found no indication that any
mass graves ever existed," he says. "Personally, I don't think there was
a mass extermination camp there at all."
Krege prepared a detailed report on his Treblinka investigation. He says
that he would welcome the formation, possibly under United Nations auspices,
of an international team of neutral, qualified specialists, to carry out
similar investigations at the sites of all the wartime German camps.

Who was the First Jew?
We know that Saul was the first king of Israel and that John
was the first man called Baptist, but who was the first Jew?
Neither Adam, Seth or Noah are called Jew. Nor were Abraham,
Isaac or Jacob. Moses was not called a Jew and neither were
Saul, David or Solomon called Jew. In fact you will not find
the word Jew in the first eleven books of the Bible. The first
time Jews are mentioned in the Bible, is in II Kings 16:6 (and
then only in translations revised in the eighteenth century)
where we find Israel was at war with the Jews and drave the
Jews from Elath. Isn't it interesting that we can read over
five hundred pages of the Bible before we find a Jew anywhere,
yet those who call themselves Jew today claim the first five
books of the bible and call it their Torah. Do you not find
it rather strange that those who claim to have written the
first five books of the Bible and call themselves Jew, can't
find the word Jew written anywhere in the book they call their
own bible, and claim to have written? Jesus Christ tells John
in Revelation 2:9 "I know the blasphemy of them which say
they are Jews and are not, but are the SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN".
We know that God changed the name of Abram to Abraham in Genesis
17:5, and that He changed the name of Jacob to Israel in Genesis
32:28, but nowhere in the Bible do we find where God changed
the name of Israel to Jew! There is therefore no authority by
which those who say they are Jews can claim to be Israel!
By the time of Jesus the word Edom or Edomite had been translated
by Greek and Latin into Ioudaios and Iudaeus meaning a Judean or
person living in Judea. The original King James version of the
Bible, 1611, translated Idumaean-Judean into Iewes. It wasn't
until the revised editions of the King James Bible, that the
word Jew appeared. The word Jew does not mean Israel
or Israelite! We must conclude therefore that the first "Jews" were
Canaanite-Edomite-Hittite. It is certain, according to the Bible,
that Jews are not Israel. jesusjew.htm
