Easter thoughts: An Easter question to Jewish Rabbis? (general)

posted by bibleprobe(R) Homepage, Mass., 04.22.2011

Question to Jewish Rabbis?

Why have you rabbis lawlessly wrestled authority from the kohanim (priests)? And why are you rabbis now leading Jewish people away from a faith squarely founded on true Biblical apocalyptic Torah Judaism as taught by the Jewish Bible?" You also skip over the Messianic prophecies in Torah. Is this because they uncomfortably point to Yeshua, like in Yeshayah(Isaiah) 53?

A Rabbi may answer: "Because the priesthood became corrupted by the Romans, and then the Temple was destroyed in 70 C.E."

Have you considered this?
"One kohen (priest) was not corrupted and his temple was not destroyed."

A Rabbi may ask: "Which one was that?"
The Truth is: "The Messiah-Priest that King David foretold in Psalm 110,[1] the portentous priest Zechariah also identified with the name of Moshiach (Messiah) in Zechariah[2] [3]--the very name Ezra called Yeshua (Aramaic form of Yehoshua) in the book of Ezra!"[4] The history of the Exodus is given to us in the Torah of Moses. There we read that a whole rebellious generation passed away leaving only a righteous remnant of two holy survivors of the Exodus to inherit the promised life in the Holy Land: Yehoshua (or Joshua- the Aramaic form is Yeshua--see Nehemiah 8:17) and Caleb. This is paradigmatic history, for it provides a prophetic model as a sign of things to come, as does the prophecy about Moshiach found in the reference to the two ominous olive trees in the book of Zechariah 4.[5] In fact, Yehoshua (or Joshua) is himself a sign of the Moshiach, as we shall see. The fact that the Aramaic form of Yehoshua or Joshua is Yeshua [see Nehemiah 8:17] when we see that the Tanakh teaches this name is to become Moshiach's personal name. "Joshua/Yeshua" is indeed one of the portentous and ominous names of "anshei mofet" ("sign-men) in the Hebrew Scriptures.[2]"

And, in the Jewish Bible, Yeshayah (Isaiah) 49:8 [6] infers that Yehoshua or Joshua/Yeshua (Greek: Jesus) is in fact a sign of the Moshiach. Therefore, if anyone wants to argue, let him argue with G-d and his holy Word in the writing of his holy prophet, Isaiah. It was Joshua who assigned the land of the promised inheritance to the individual tribes and families. Isaiah 49:8 alludes to this activity. This key verse infers that King Moshiach, the Servant of the L-rd, is the new Joshua, for in his own person the Moshiach will bring the promised new life for the people, which is their covenant inheritance.

A Rabbi may ask: If Moshiach is the one who is the Prince of Peace, the new Joshua, as it were, to bring the people out of the Golus (Exile) and into the land of eternal Sabbath rest, then where is all the world peace the Prophets said the Moshiach would bring?"

Answer: G-d did not promise peace to a world that rejects him, Rabbi. But those who receive the spiritual bris milah (covenant of circumcision) and the justification peace the Moshiach brings are in actuality raised to a new spiritual existence with Moshiach in anticipation of the Olam haBa (the World to Come), and in anticipation of the Resurrection Age and its peace.

But how can we have the latter if we refuse the former? How can we have the Olam haBa of Moshiach if we reject Moshiach's New Covenant life in the Ruach haKodesh (Holy Spirit)?

To continue, Bamidbar (Numbers) 34:19 [7] tells us that Caleb was from the Moshiach's tribe, the tribe of Judah. Caleb in the history of the Torah is thus a continuing sign-man or mofet man (mofet is Hebrew for sign or omen or portent [2]) of the remnant of one, the King Moshiach of the tribe of Judah, indicated before Caleb in places like Bereshis (Genesis) 49:10 [8] and after Caleb in several places in the Jewish Bible. This righteous-remnant-of one
motif reappears later in the Servant Songs of Yeshayah (Isaiah) chapters 52-53, where an idealized Israel is called Yeshurun [9] and then is seen in counterpoint to a suffering, dying and death-conquering Moshiach, the Servant of the L-rd.

`A prophet will the L-rd thy G-d raise up unto thee, from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me (Moses)."[14] That Deuteronomy 18:15, then, is a Messianic prophecy fulfilled ultimately in the Moshiach, the Son of David, should be clear enough. Confirmation comes in II Samuel [16] and in Isaiah,[17] which tell us that David's "house" will bring the Moshiach, and also in Ezekiel, which gives us the title of Moshiach, "David my Servant".
