Christianity and the Messianic Offshoot Twisting those Jewish Scriptures

By Menashe Dovid

This new section of the blog highlights how the Jewish Scriptures are twisted by Christianity and Messianic Judaism (the same thing as Christianity) who take their lead from no other than the New Testament itself. Here is an example in point:

26 And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: “The Deliverer will come out of Zion, And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob; 27 For this is My covenant with them, When I take away their sins.” Rom 11 NKJV

Now compare where it comes from in the same Christian bible translation:

20 “The Redeemer will come to Zion, And to those who turn from transgression in Jacob,” Says the Lord. Isaiah 59:20 NKJV

See how they are completely opposite? In the twisted version, Paul makes his case for a divine messiah who does it all for you on the basis that a person is incapable of doing anything (cf John 6:44). The correct version as per Isaiah 59:20 has individual persons turning from their transgressions! In contradistinction to Paul’s twisting of scripture we have a clear indication in the following which says we can turn fom our own transgressions ourselves!

6 And the LORD said unto Cain: ‘Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen? 7 If thou doest well, shall it not be lifted up? and if thou doest not well, sin coucheth at the door; and unto thee is its desire, but thou mayest rule over it.‘ Gen 4

Mastery over sin is possible, indeed as keeping the law is possible too (see Deut 30:11-14).

A Modern day Deception

See the subtle agenda in the screen shot for a messianic proselytizing agenda below? The subtle agenda would like us Jews to think that messiah = savior = sacrifice.

In the English of the website it says Messiah comes, if your not careful you would think that the Hebrew version of the site says the same thing. The difference is by just one letter (at the end) but that one letter makes all the difference! Notice it says משיע but really it should be משיח (messiah). The first as it is shown on the Hebrew web page says savior (משיע) and the second in the English says messiah! A subtle difference because both משיח (messiah) and savior (משיע) are very similarly pronounced but are in fact very different words!

Moreover, the idea of savior in the NT conveys the idea that one is saved from ones sins and so the fusion of messiah (משיח) with savior (משיע)(Jesus / Yeshua) is very deceptive indeed. However, a look up of the word משיע (savior) in the Jewish scriptures shows up over 250 times and consistently carries the idea of being saved from ones enemies and NOT to be saved from sin! The point about sin is that G-d has given us mastery over it and where one needs forgiveness G-d has provided repentance which effects his forgiveness. What you do does count, especially when it comes to repentance but do  not take my word for it:

12 “Therefore you, O son of man, say to the children of your people: ‘The righteousness of the righteous man shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression; as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall because of it in the day that he turns from his wickedness; nor shall the righteous be able to live because of his righteousness in the day that he sins.’ 13 When I say to the righteous that he shall surely live, but he trusts in his own righteousness and commits iniquity, none of his righteous works shall be remembered; but because of the iniquity that he has committed, he shall die. 14 Again, when I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ if he turns from his sin and does what is lawful and right, 15 if the wicked restores the pledge, gives back what he has stolen, and walks in the statutes of life without committing iniquity, he shall surely live; he shall not die. 16 None of his sins which he has committed shall be remembered against him; he has done what is lawful and right; he shall surely live. Ezek 33

To embrace Christianity means, not only to embrace Jesus as the promised King who will rule at in the messianic age (as the Jewish Scriptures describe the messiah), but rather to accept Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, the second and equal member of the Trinity, who lived on earth and needed to die on the cross for your sins. You are also embracing the belief that without Jesus your repentance has no value in front of G-d as (according to the Greek Scriptures) human repentance has no efficacy in front of G-d (contrary to open teachings of the Jewish Scriptures i.e Ezekiel 33:10-16.)

This is not a matter of selecting your preferred candidate for president, it’s about redefining whom you worship as G-d and what G-d requires from you. I’m pleading with you with all my heart and soul, please take the time to make sure you understand what you are being asked to reject and embrace before making any life altering decision.

May the G-d of Abraham Isaac and Jacob lead you to His Truth as you continue to seek Him in truth.

The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth. (Psalm 145:18) Rabbi Eli Cohen

  1. there is no deference between paul in rom and isaiah
    isa. said that messiah will come to those who turn from transgression — and that will be done by eliaho first (malachi) – malachi said 4:5 that eliah will come to make israel repent then messiah come – but that dont delete what said in zach 3:9
    there r alot of examples from midrashim said that at messiah period there will be no sin – and he will make israel repent – what rabbis said is strengthened by scriptures from all over the bible
    one example
    Midrash Rabbah, The Song of Songs VII 5*3
    … Another explanation of Hadrach: this is the Messiah who will guide (hadrich) all humanity in the way of repentance before the Holy One, blessed be He.

    can u deny that messiah will make israel repent ?


    • In the twisted version, Paul makes his case for a divine messiah who does it all for you (on a cross) on the basis that a person is incapable of doing anything (cf John 6:44) and if anything is done is worthless too.

      The messiah does not do it all for you so you do not have to. You have to repent and the job of the messiah is to help you repent.


  2. You are struggling Menashe. Messiah, Savior, One and the same. It is a game of semantics you are playing. And to be totally honest the nation went into captivity and has languished for 2000 years because of a stubborn heart towards the love of Yeshua. You perpetuate the suffering of your precious people. This is a tragic. That you would read the Torah with insight and understand about Joseph and Moshe and have your eyes opened.


  3. I bet the muslims love blogs like this, distracted by crossing swords with each other, majoring in minors, while they break down our institutions. Menashe Walsh what exactly is the purpose of your blog and postings? To draw the nations to Judaism? Not with the attitudes I see presented here. To honor G-d? You drive the very people who need His truth away. To be a teacher is a great responsibility and burden to be taken seriously lest you offend the G-d of Israel. In reading your posts and this blog it appears to me that you Menashe are more interested in stroking your ego than honoring G-d and His Torah. This is something for Jew and non-Jew to remember: 19 I scattered them among the nations and they were dispersed among the lands; according to their way and according to their acts did I judge them. 20 They came among the nations where they came, and they desecrated My holy Name when it was said of them, ‘These are the people of HaSHEM, but they departed His land.’ Ezekiel 36.
    (Please don’t tell me I got the quote all wrong because I don’t know Hebrew. That’s what the muslims, who hate us and our G-d, say when confronted by quotes from the Quran.)


    • Dear (??) You presume too much after all we are not even acquainted. I did send you an e-mail but you never replied. Muslims have not expressed any interest in this blog. My encounter with Islam you may find interesting:

      A purpose of my blog is to address a number of issues, one of which is the the skewed ego driven agenda of missionaries who claim that Jews are spiritually blind and closed minded etc.. The ‘want you Jew’ / ‘do not want you Jew’ bipolar disorder of missionaries is also addressed here also.

      Perhaps you may wish to introduce yourself? May be even address the issues raised in this post without resorting to personal insults and presumptions?

  4. Paul T Rumaker (paulhimself), at your service, it’s my mistake not realizing you wouldn’t recognize an additional persona I’ll be using on a soon to be published blog. My purpose was not to insult you, I have respect for your knowledge, but I question your tactics. You’re email came at a time I had just signed up for a blog site and I thought it was from WordPress (I got the idea for a blog from you and I truly hope to see you there.) I don’t know if muslims come to you’re specific site or no (I’m often surprised at the drive bys who hit some of the sites I’m involved in.) I was speaking of Jew/Christian disputes in general. Not being a missionary I’m more concerned with the war Christians and Jews are fighting (and have been fighting for centuries) against Islam which seems to have the capability, due to lax political leaders, of overwhelming us both. To a Christian wanting to learn about Jews and Judaism (yes, Christian roots) you’re comments both here and elsewhere seem to have a big “GET LOST” mat at the front door. Are there Christians who hate Jews in this day and age, you bet! Are there Christians who love, support and care about Jews and the Jewish nation, you bet! In your works, Menashe, you don’t differentiate between the two, and your words seem to go out of the way to insult the haters, the indifferent and the supporters of the Jewish people as one and the same. Jews and those who stand with Jews and Israel will not survive this war, if we do the work of our enemies first.


  5. The story goes along the following lines:

    A fox and a scorpion both need to cross a river.
    The scorpion asks the fox for a ride on its back as it cannot swim.
    The fox refuses saying “no you’ll sting me”.
    The scorpion replies that it wouldn’t, as it would damage the both of them.
    The fox agrees and allows the scorpion to ride on it’s back.
    Half way across the river the scorpion stings the fox.
    As the poison takes effect on the fox and it starts to sink it asks the scorpion, “Why?”
    “Why did you sting me, now we are both going to die?”
    The scorpion replies, “I couldn’t help myself, it’s in my nature”.

    Mark 16

    15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

    Luke 19

    27 But those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them–bring them here and kill them in front of me.

    It’s within a Christians spiritual and physical nature I am afraid!!

  7. it is clear from isaiah 53 that jesus christ came and died for all of humanity, for them to receive eternal salvation. it makes no sense whatsoever to put “israel” in place of jesus, it just doesnt pan out vs by vs
    jesus is coming soon
    the kingdom of heaven is at hand
