Michael Hoffman’s 1,102-page book, Judaism Discovered: From Its Own Texts–A Study of the Anti-Biblical Religion of Racism, Self-Worship, Superstition and Deceit, published by Independent History and Research (revisionisthistory.org) is an outstanding guide for intelligent Christians to understand the relationship between Orthodox Judaism and major religious, political, and economic issues, such as: Judeo-Christian values myth, dispensationalism, dual covenant theology, supersessionism, communism, Zionism, Christian Zionism, neo-conservatives (neo-Trotskyites), and liberation theology.
Many Christians (Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox) do not even realize that the Bibles they use do not contain the same number of books or sequence of books in the Old and New Testaments as the Bibles used by other Christians. Even worse, many Christians believe that the Old Testament contains everything they need to know about Judaism. Hoffman’s masterpiece provides Christians with detailed explanations of the Oral Torah, such as the Babylonian Talmud, accepted by Orthodox Judaism. Christians who choose to remain ignorant of Judaism need to review the historical consequences of Christian ignorance, including: Sever Plocker’s article “Stalin’s Jews” (posted at ynetnews.com) and Christopher Jon Bjerknes’ free book online The Jewish Genocide of Armenian Christians.
The Soviet Union exploited Christian ignorance of Christian doctrines by promoting liberation theology, creating Christian or peace organizations (Christian Peace Conference), and by sending representatives to the World Council of Churches meetings. See “The Kremlin’s Religious Crusade” by Ion Mihai Pacepa, FrontPageMagazine.com, June 30, 2009.
In spite of sanitized translations of the Old Testament in Christian Bibles, such as using servant instead of slave, intelligent readers of the Old Testament understand that there is nothing sacred about many of the values expressed in the Old Testament, including the Jewish practice of murdering every man, woman, and child when they invaded the lands of others. An atheist Web site, SkepticsAnnotedBible.com, contains detailed annotations of the Bible, Koran, and of the Book of Mormon. It is a sad commentary on Christians and Muslims when atheists understand their sacred books better than most Christians and Muslims do.
What is a Gentile? I am amazed at how many Christians cannot answer this question. They have read in the Old Testament about Adam and Eve and assume that they have descended from Adam and Eve. If this were true, then we are all Jews. Orthodox Jews do not believe this. Jesus preached to Jews and was crucified at the request of Jewish leaders for doing so. While New Testament Christians understand that the new covenant replaced old covenants, Christian Zionists have promoted dual covenants and dispensationalism. An example of a book covering the issues related to supersessionism is Michael J. Vlach’s The Church As a Replacement of Israel: An Analysis of Supersessionism. The Apostle Paul shocked many early Christians by preaching to Gentiles and by not requiring circumcision for Gentiles in order to become Christians. Christians who read Hoffman’s book will understand why.
On March 2, 2006, The Jerusalem Post had to report that John Hagee and Jerry Falwell denied the claim reported earlier that they believed that Jews could go to heaven without accepting Jesus. To understand those who call themselves Christian Zionists, read Shlomo Aviner’s book, Moses Hess: Prophet of Communism and Zionism. Moses Hess worked with Karl Marx on drafts of The Communist Manifesto. Early communists called Moses Hess the “Communist Rabbi”. Moses Hess’ 1862 book, Rome and Jerusalem, outlined a communist strategy to destroy Christian culture in Europe while providing a refuge for Jewish communists in Palestine. Moses Hess is buried in Israel.
If you accept the Orthodox Jewish beliefs about the distinction between Jews and Gentiles, then it would not be possible to convert to Orthodox Judaism. Amazingly, many of those who claim to be Jews today have pagan ancestors who converted to Judaism (Shlomo Sand and Yael Lotan’s book: The Invention of the Jewish People). The combination of the chutzpah of the descendants of King Bulan’s pagans of Eastern Europe who call their opponents anti-Semites plus the stupidity and dishonesty of the Christian Zionists has served as the basis for endless wars. As documented by David Chagall, in his book Target: Special Victims of the Holocaust, Nazi Germany did not target Semitic (Sephardic) Jews.
Michael Hoffman and Moshe Lieberman’s book, The Israeli Holocaust Against the Palestinians, documented war crimes against the Palestinians made possible by America’s political leaders and media portraying the Palestinians as less than human. As noted by atheists, such as at EvilBible.com, the Bible contains many claims by Jews that God told the Jews to murder every man, woman, and child in lands the Jews wanted for themselves: “The so called ‘God’ of the Bible makes Osama Bin Laden look like a Boy Scout.” As documented by Michael Hoffman, the Talmud is even worse (see also: TalmudBlasphemy.com).
In a desperate attempt to steal Palestine from the Palestinians, the debate has turned to searches for lost tribes and to DNA, inspired by books such as: Jon Entine’s Abraham’s Children: Race, Identity, and the DNA of the Chosen People and Yaakov Kleiman’s DNA and Tradition: The Genetic Link to the Ancient Hebrews. For those who want to support your claims, submit your DNA to 23andMe.com and post your maternal and paternal haplogroup results. As noted at 23andMe.com: “all humans are more than 99% similar to each other genetically”. Anyone who accepts the Old Testament accounts of Jews murdering every man, woman, and child—except for Gentile virgins taken as Jewish wives—will have problems pursuing genetic claims.
Michael Hoffman’s 1,102-page book, Judaism Discovered: From Its Own Texts–A Study of the Anti-Biblical Religion of Racism, Self-Worship, Superstition and Deceit, should be read by every intelligent Christian. “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”—2 Timothy 2:15
