Jewish (modern and erroneous usage of the word in many English Bibles)
Generally speaking, a Jew is a person
named after his/her religion called Jew-ism or Jew-dah-ism, as a Christian is named after his/her religion called Christianity.
The word Jew is not found in the Hebrew, Aramaic, or Greek texts of the Sacred Scriptures, but
in many English Bibles, the word Jew has become associated with a rendering of the Latin word Judaeus, which was a translation
of the Greek word Ioudaios, the Aramaic word Yahudain, and the Hebrew word Yahudah. Although not found in either the Hebrew,
Aramaic or the Greek Scriptures, the word Jew is an incorrect English rendering most often translated from the Latin word
Judaeus, a Latin translation of the Hebrew word Yahudah. As translated, it is referring to one of the tribes of Israel
(Yisrael) named after one of the 12 sons of Jacob. The word Jews, the plural of the word Jew, is incorrectly translated most
often from the word Hebrew Yahudi, descendants of the tribe named after Yahudah. It must be noted, that the letter 'J'
was not in general use in English until after the 16th century as is now used in many English Bibles to form the incorrect
Biblical word 'Jew.' In some English Bibles we have received from the translators, the word Juda. This is also an error
in translation because the word derives from the Greek Iudaios, which in the English would be Judaios. Judaios was
none other then a Greek pagan diety (see W.H. Roscher's lexicon of mythology).
As examples, the following words have been "transliterated" from the Hebrew, Aramaic, or Greek, that is, the letters forming
the original word have been placed into English letters, so when pronounced in the English, the word will closely represent
the sound of the original word as found in the language of the Sacred Scriptures.

in many English Bibles).
Ioudaismos (Greek) = reference to the religion of the Yahudi, - (Incorrectly
translated as Judaism in many English Bibles (from Jew-dah-ism, or Jew-ism).
As used in the Scriptures, the word 'Jew' is sometimes translated to refer to a Yahudain a native or inhabitant (which
would include many diverse races and people groups) who were living in the region of Yahud, as the word 'American' includes
many diverse peoples living in the country called 'America'. The word most often refers to an advocate or an adherent to the
religion of the Yahudi. In some cases it may refer to a literal descendant of Abraham, Issac, Jacob/Israel, one of the descendants
of the tribe names after Yahudah, but this would be very rare.
Modern Jews are divided into two primary groups, the
Ashkenazi Khazar Jew and the Sephardim (or Sephardic Jew). There is a great difference between these groups. They are not
one united people. They are divided socially, politically and racially.
In present day generic usage, the word Jew has no relationship to the Hebrew or the Greek translated word 'Jew' where
used in the Hebrew Scriptures. The word is associated primarily to one as an adherent or advocate of Jew-ism the religion
of the Jews, but not through ethnics or race. Basically, a Jew is anyone who decides to call himself/herself a Jew.
Jewish circles, there are two other official ways one can become a Jew. One can be born from a mother who calls herself a
Jew, or one can 'convert' to become a Jew. (A convert is called a Ger which literally means stranger). Being born a Jew is
pretty simple. If one's mother is Jewish (of the Jew-ism religion) then he/she is considered a Jew, if one's mother is not
of the Jew-ism religion, then neither is the child officially a Jew. (It doesn't matter what race the father is).
Modern Jew-ism as a religion began about 1000 CE, and is traced to Rabbenu Gershon of Mainz, Germany, considered the 'Father'
of the Ashkenazi Jews. Ashkenazi Jews constitute approximately 90% of all the worlds approximately fourteen million Jews.
Modern Jew-ism is not the Scriptural worship system of the Hebrew Yahudi (of the tribe of Yahudah).
Jews do not actively encourage conversion; to a large degree they discourage it. This is the reason Jews have never
had missionaries trying to convert non-Jews. They want the convert but the convert must be 100% committed to being a Jew.
Discouraging conversion helps to filter out those 'lacking the proper degree' of commitment. Jew-ism is strongly anti- Hebrew
Israel, anti-African Hebrew Israel, anti-Nazarene Israel
If the non-Jew still wants to become a Jew, the male is circumcised. After he is healed, he immerses himself in a mikva.
A mikva is a special pool of water which is used for many religious purposes in the cult of Jew-ism. (It must be made according
to very specific rules). A female convert only has to immerse herself.
The term 'Jew', has come to be used synonymous with the term 'Israel,
or Israelite', however, this is error. Scriptural "Yisraelites," the collective descendants of the 12 tribes of
Jacob/Israel (the Northern Kingdom) were never called Jews. Modern Jews are not of the
tribe of Yahudah, and are not a part of the Yisraelites of the Scriptures. They take the name Jew because the name is in the
name of their religion i.e. Jew-ism. Jews have deceived many, including christians into thinking that Jew-ism is a continuance
of the Scriptural worship system of Jacob/Yisrael. But it is NOT.
Ashkenazi(m) (Franco-German, Eastern and Central European Jews)
The Northern Kingdom of Yisrael (Israel) was conquered by the Assyrian King Shalmaneser V, in 745-722 BCE, (for their sin before
Yahweh), and the Yisraelites were exiled into (Assyria), 2 Kings 17:5-7. They prospered during
the years in Assyria, and became a huge population of people. Outgrowing the land area they
eventually migrated North through the 'Caucasus Mountains', and into central and Western Europe
forming the Great European Nations. Their descendants are known as Caucasians. As these Yisraelites migrated they influenced
many local people groups. No longer having an organized religious priesthood, and not having a nation or national identity,
their system of worship was corrupted through many years of captive living in pagan Assyria.
During the 7th century A.D. various bits and pieces of the old Yahudain religion was embraced and expanded on by the Khazars,
(a people of Turkish descent). The Khazar King, his court, and the Khazar military class, adopted this amalgamated newly formed
religion, which is now known as Jew-ism.
Modern Jew-ism, was formally formed into it's basic cultic worship form about 1,000 years ago, (according to Jewish history),
when - Rabbenu Gershon a Khazar/Jew of Mainz, Germany, published a ban on Torah Plural Marriage or Polygamy as it is known
in the west, for the Jews. This marks the recorded beginning of the Ashkenazi Jewish Sect, and Franco-German halachic* creativity.
The word 'Ashkenazi' is not Hebrew for the word Germany, although the name
has become 'associated' with Germany because many Ashkenazi Jews organized
in Eastern Europe.
*halachic - loose 'interpretations' of Torah/Hebrew Scripture Law.
In common parlance the present day 'Jew' is synonymous with the 'Ashkenazi Khazar/Jew.' Scripture refers to the Ashkenaz
in Gen. 10:3, and in I Chron. 1:6, as one of the sons of Gomer, who was a son of Japheth, who was a son of Noah. Ashkenaz
was also a brother of Togarmah (and a nephew of Magog) who the Kazars according to King Joseph (of the Kazars) claimed as
their ancestor. The people who refer to themselves as Ashkenazi Jews are not Yisraelites, and they are not Semites because they do not descend
from Noah's son Shem. They are an Ashkenazi Khazar people group, who descend from Noah's son Japheth. Approximately 90 percent
of the Jews in the world call themselves Ashkenazi Jews.
Sephardim (Spanish Jews)
As mentioned fter the Northern Kingdom of Yisrael (Israel) was conquered by the Assyrian King Shalmaneser V, in 745-722
BCE, (for their sin before Yahweh), the Israelites from the Northern Kingdom were exiled into (Assyria), 2 Kings 17:5-7. The
Assyrian King then imported people groups from his country (Assyria) to replace the exiled
Yisraelites in order for him to maintain and control the land of the exiles. The Assyrian Sepharvaim people were one of these
groups, along with some Cuthahites, and Arrahites, 2 Kings 17:24. They mingled with each other, along with the Edomite people,
who had migrated Northward from Idumea (field of Edom)
after Yisrael and the Yahudain were exiled. Adad and Anu were ancient gods of Babylonia and
were also the gods of these pagan Sepharvaim people. The Sephardim Yahudain are a mongrel people whose descent is directly
from a mixture of this Assyrian people group and the remnant of some of the escaped Yahudain and Yisraelites, strongly mixed
with Edomite blood. The Edomites migrated into the land originally occupied by the Northern Kingdom of Yisrael and the Sothern
Kingdom of Yahud. The religion of the area also became of mixed character, from this diversity of people, 2 Kings 17:24-41.
The people known as Sephardim Jews, "Spanish Jews," include a mixture of these people who also descended from the Canaanites
(the people who colonized Carthage). Following it's sack by
Rome, they adopted the Sepharvaim, or Sephardim name and constitute
about 5% of world Jews today. The Sephardim Jews speak Latino, a mixture of Spanish and Hebrew. The Sephardim Jews migrated
West through Egypt, then North into Spain
from Yahud and Samaria before, during, and after the destruction
of Yerushalayim by the Romans in 70 CE,. This migration became known as the "Jewish Diaspora". Today, these Sephardim Jews
are still using their ancient adopted name Sephardim). They settled in Spain,
Portugal, the Eastern Mediterranean, Italy, the Balkans, Salonica and Macedonia, and eventually emigrated into France,
England, and Western Europe.
Unlike the Ashkenazi Jew (who never set a foot in the Southern Kingdom of Yahud), the Sepharviam Yahudain did originate
from Yahud and were loosely known as Samaritans during the time of Messiah, because most were living in Samaria which was
the area from which the Northern Kingdom of Yisrael was removed by the conquest of the Assyrian King Shalmaneser V. The twelve
apostles during the time if Messiah, were instructed not to enter the cities of the Samaritans, Matt. 10:5. Although many
True Yisraelites of tribal descent living in Samaria did receive
the witness of Yahshua and the message of redemption from the apostles, Acts, 1:8. Some of the mixed blood Samaritans also
became proselytes to the Christian faith, through the Ministry of the apostles, Acts 8:4-25.
The Sephardim Jews, or Sepharviam Jews (spelling is not important) are not of Hebrew Israelite blood; they are not
of the tribe of Yahudah although they were called Yahudain, as inhabitants, i.e. persons living in the land originally occupied
by Yahud and Yisrael. Their descent is mixed from Edom/Esau/Canaanite blood.
The Sephardim Jews, like the Ashkenazi
Khazar Jews are not a Semitic people!
The word Sephardim is not a Hebrew word for Spain, although the
name has become 'associated' with Spain because many Sephardim Jews organized
as a people group in Spain.
(modern Jew-ism, Jew-dah-ism)
Jew-ism, is a cultic (ritual-istic) religion which originated approximately 1000 CE, and is traced to Rabbenu Gershon
a Khazar/Jew of Mainz Germany through the publishing of his 'halachic creativity' (interpretation of Old Covenant laws), he
thereby established the beginning of the modern cultic religion of Jew-ism. Today the religion is also greatly influenced
by the Babylonian Talmud, an ancient Pagan ritual-istic system of various extreme opinions, interpretations, codes, rules,
Jews themselves acknowlege that they are not Hebrew, Israelites or from the Shem lineage!
There will be alot more information to be added to this subject in the future.
Who are these Ashkenazi Khazars Jews who constitute approx 90% of 14 million world-wide Jewish population?
