Respecting God’s Revelation

A commenter on a blog post recently tried to explain how he and his fellow christians can read their Jesus in so many passages of the Jewish Bible.

I thought to myself that this is an important difference between that sort of christian and an individual who respects the Jewish Bible as God’s revelation: these christians see Jesus in the Jewish Bible whereas the person who respects God’s revelation simply reads the Jewish Bible for what it says.

Because of this, these two people will see different things, because they in essence worship two different entities: the one is devoted to a man whilst the other reveres God.

About hesedyahu

I'm a gentile living in UK, a person who has chosen to take upon himself the responsibility God has given to all gentiles. God is the greatest aspect of my life and He has blessed me with a family. I used to be a christian, but I learnt the errors of my ways. I love music. I love to play it on the instruments I can play, I love to close my eyes and feel the groove of it. I wrote my songs when I was single and not so happy and since I've been married, I haven't written as much. I guess that shows how happy and blessed I am. What else is there?

    Bravo!
    I am still getting untoxicated from the system way to put that idol in every scenario of the Tanakh texts… it’s not about him, he even did not exist in that time and no one knew about him… the old testament texts should be taken and understood as they plainly are, period. And the own text explains itself!
