The Jewish Jesus, aka Yeshua and the Jesus of history, is the person that led the movement we read about in the Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark and Luke). There are many other “belief models of Jesus Christ” that were created after the crucifixion of the Jewish Jesus.
It is important to understand that the Jewish Jesus was an expert teacher and interpreter of the Jewish Scriptures, especially Isaiah’s words. His calling, movement, and core teachings are based on his interpretations of sections of Isaiah. Below are the core teachings of the Jewish Jesus. You will see these points repeated throughout his teachings, including those on salvation.
● Guard Justice and Rescue the Community.
● Take away the yoke from your midst, the pointing of the finger and speaking wickedness.
● Extend your breath to the hungry and satisfy the afflicted lives.
● Share your bread with the hungry, bring the poor who are cast out to your house; cover the naked when you see them, and do not hide yourself from your own flesh.
● Then your light shall break forth like the morning, your restoration shall spring forth speedily, your acts of rescue shall go before you, and the glory of Yahweh shall gather you.
● Then Yahweh will answer when you call, your light shall dawn in the darkness, and your darkness shall be like the noonday.
The Jewish Jesus Movement was a group of people actively involved in guarding justice and rescuing the community. They were guided by the most ancient standard in the biblical text – the Creator’s TOV Standard.
Protecting and preserving lives, making lives more functional,
increasing the quality of life, and being
the Creator’s co-shepherds over all lives.
Jesus taught no requirements about believing in or believing anything about him. Those came from church leaders that would be born many centuries later. The next series of email will highlight how the points above are used in his teachings.
