Was Jesus Christ A Jew?

Was Jesus Christ a Jew? Several answers in the Bible tell us and history as well that the Redeemer Jesus Christ was not a Jew. Thus the answer is NO. If Jesus Christ was a Jew HE is another “Jesus” for sure.

To avoid a senseless discussion Jesus Christ is called “King of the Jews” by Pilate. True, but does that prove anything? Did Jesus Christ ever introduce Himself as a Jew? It also applies to the Samaritan woman at the well not knowing, thought Jesus Christ belonged to the Jews. 

HE is Jesus Christ

1/– Jesus Christ never introduced Himself as a Jew, 

2/– Humanly speaking, Jesus Christ was of the tribe of Judah and of the generation of David. Of course, so was His mother Mary and His guardian Joseph. The generation of David was a particular lineage in the House of Judah. Matthew 1 and Luke 1. Mary and Joseph had to travel from Nazareth to Bethlehem to be taxed. 

  • Luke 2:4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judæa, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he (=Joseph) was of the house and lineage of David)

3/– Matthew repeated what the prophets of God prophesied.

  • Matthew 2:23 And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He (=Jesus Christ) shall be called a Nazarene.

The word “nazar”, “nazarene”, in English means branch.

  • Jeremiah 33:15, In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land.
  • Zechariah 6:12 And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD:

4/– Although born in Bethlehem, Jesus Christ was brought up in Nazareth. The events, miracles, and His preaching of His Ministry for the greater part were in Galilee. The times Jesus Christ was in Jerusalem was during Passover to fulfill the law. It was then when Lord Jesus threw the tables of the money changers upside down. The third time He suffered and died for our sin and is risen indeed on the third day.

Jesus Christ was first brought to Pilate but then to Herod. And why was that? Because Jesus Christ never was an inhabitant of Judea but of Galilee.

  • Luke 23:5-7 And they were the more fierce, saying, He stirreth up the people, teaching throughout all Jewry, beginning from Galilee to this place. 6/ When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man were a Galilæan. 7/ And as soon as he knew that he belonged unto Herod’s jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who himself also was at Jerusalem at that time.

5/– In the time of Esther, the Medio-Persian empire had 127 different provinces. The provinces extended from Greece to India, from Turkey to the Persian Gulf and the Indian Ocean. That is quite an empire with a lot of different people. Everybody called themselves Jews. A great part of the people became Jews. All these people became mixed multitudes of different nationalities and perhaps races. Therefore it absolutely, nullifies that the Jews are a pure offspring of Abraham. It is nothing but a mixture.
Was the Blood of Jesus Christ mixed with that of other people? If that were so then the bloodline of Jesus Christ would not have been for 100% pure.

But the Blood of Jesus Christ that paid for our sin and saved us was 100% pure Blood. And because the Blood of Jesus Christ was and is still powerful it cannot be anything different than 100% pure Blood. The pure Blood shed on the cross is the pure Blood of the finished Work we can rest in. The 100% pure Blood that makes us righteous before God.

Truth through history. People who were not even Jews by birth became Jews because they were afraid. 

  • Esther 8:17 And in every province, and in because every city, whithersoever the king’s commandment and his decree came, the Jews had joy and gladness, a feast and a good day. And many of the people of the land became Jews; for the fear of the Jews fell upon them.

6/– Jesus Christ confronted the Jews. Matthew chapter 23 is the chapter of the woes.

  • Matthew 23:29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, 
  • Matthew 23:31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.
  • Matthew 23:33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell.

The Jews are not his sheep that’s why they don’t hear His voice. The reason why the Jews do not believe is not because of their unbelief. It is simply because that they are not His sheep, to begin with.

  • John 10:26  But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.
John 10_27.28KJB.png

7/–If Jesus Christ was a Jew He would have had mixed blood. Jesus Christ from His mother’s side was of the pure blood of the line of David. Mary’s conception. Fully Man.

  • Hebrews 10:5  Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me.

Jesus Christ from His Father’s side was Divine, of pure blood and of incorruptible seed. Fully God.

  • Luke 1:35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

If Jesus Christ would have been born a Jew His Blood would have had no power at all. There would have been no salvation!

When Jesus Christ, the Only High Priest is the most important Person in our lives and our sin is paid for in full with His precious Blood, isn’t it equally important to know Who our Redeemer truly is?

Hebrews 7:13-15 For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar. 14/ For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood. 15/ And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest

When we want to praise and exalt the LORD isn’t this also one way to do this? Instead of holding on to the deception and propaganda of the Edomites (the modern Jews) that they are God’s people? And shouldn’t we stop identifying Jesus Christ as a Jew?

Do the roughly 17 million Jews in the world. qualify for the:

  • “many nations”, Genesis 17:4-5,
  • “into a multitude in the midst of the earth”, Genesis 48:16,
  • “a multitude of nations”, Genesis 48:19?

Isaiah 62:2 And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name.

That new name we find in, 

Acts 11:26 And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.

Does it take the readers out of their comfort zone? It sure did me! But because of God’s never-ending faithfulness and an abundance of His grace, I am blessed.

  1. Hi miss Jackie, good mornin to you.

    Thank you for allowing me to share my thoughts with you about this matter.

    I know (as you do) that Jesus was of the tribe of Judah, and He lived in the region of Judaea, which would identify Him as a Jew.

    Moreover, John 1:11 tells us…

    “He came unto his own, and his own received him not.” That is a very important statement is it not? Full of meaning is it not?

    So I don’t see where the problem is, in recognizing His earthly identity as a Jew?

    ~

    Also,

    The current Christ-rejecting nation that calls itself Israel, isn’t the true Israel, no doubt about that.

    He is a Jew who is circumcised in the heart.
    The seed of Abraham, the Israel of God, are those who are in Christ.

    Praise God miss Jackie 🙏

  2. Of course, I fully understand where you are coming from as I was there at some point in time.

    Calling Jesus Christ a Jew is incorrect reasoning.. Many things are spiritualized that should not be spiritualized. The Saviour when walking on earth shed His Blood on the cross being fully Man. That happened literally.

    The shed Blood, that covered us and was payment our sin happened literally. There is no way that we can spiritualize the event that dark but victorious Night on Calvary.
    That’s why I believe, and I am not the only one that we are falling short in identifying Jesus Christ as a Jew. Calling Jesus Christ a Jew is deception and propaganda of the modern Jews.

    A quote from the post,“Jesus Christ was first brought to Pilate but then to Herod. And why was that? Because Jesus Christ never was an inhabitant of Judea but of Galilee. end of quote. And I mentioned Luke 23:5-7.

    The quoted Bible verses in the various posts of my Homepage on this topic are revealing under the names Jesus Christ is called. Also, the links to web pages that are Biblically supported about this issue show that Jesus Christ never was a Jew.

    Jesus Christ came first and foremost for His own people, the Israelites.

    Matthew 10:5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

    In John 10:15-18 where Jesus Christ is talking to His disciples, the Galilean fishermen, either from the tribe of Judah or Benjamin, HE is mentioning the other fold. That other fold is the ten tribes of Israel. These ten tribes were already scattered abroad.

    God will give Israel a new name. The White people are not the gentiles.
    Isaiah 62:2 And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name. 3 Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.

    This new name we find in Acts 11:26
    And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.

    The scattered Israelites crossed the Caucasus where the word Caucasian comes from. They became nations in North-Western Europe. The Anglo-Saxon, the Celtic, the Germanic, and the Scandinavian people. They are all White people. The White people migrated further to the United States, Canada. Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.

    Mr. Lee, it is you and me among many other white people who are God’s chosen people, the Israelites. Among them, God saved them before the foundation of the world. Because among the White people are many ungodly people.

    Who are the people who have God’s Bible? The White people.
    Who are the godly people proclaiming and sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ in nations of a different race? The White people.

    In North-Western Europe where the White people are living became flooded in 2015 with masses of Islamists and many other Colored people. Now, Biden, is president Colored people are trying to pass the border of the United States.

    Evil forces want to destroy the White people. By (perhaps forced) marriages between white and dark-skinned people.
    It was tried once before, the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan. Ever heard of it?

    John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

    Paul the apostle is also warning us.
    Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

    The Bible, the only Book God wrote in It is everything we need to know.
    By claiming that Jesus Christ is a Jew and the pagans wanting to destroy the White people.
    There is nothing new under the sun.

    Thank You, Lord Jesus, for the gained knowledge over the almost past two decades and especially over the last six months. Praise the Lord o, my soul.

    1. Hi miss Jackie,

      I know I said that I’d post this on my site, but I just can’t in good conscience.
      Please forgive me for saying I’d post it, and not honoring my word.

      You have always been kind to me, and have supplied good scriptural information to me, so when I read what you wrote in your comment, I’m at a loss for words.

      My friend,

      What color someone is, makes no difference to God.

      Please retract the sort of racially divisive wording that you’ve presented.

      In kindness,

      Lee

  3. Of course, that’s fine Mr. Lee as I advised you not to do so.

    My posts, guided by the Bible, are merely about that God fulfills ALL His promises and covenants and Who Jesus Christ exactly is. It is of the utmost importance I think to know that we are saved by 100% pure precious Blood of our great Saviour.

    Excuse me, you did not hear me say that colored people are all bad and cannot be saved. Among white people are also ungodly people. Unfortunately, you misunderstand me.
    Herewith, I like to express that any other person of another race will also be saved when they call upon the LORD. It doesn’t matter where anyone comes from, or what anyone has done. Through Jesus Christ and His Precious Blood these issues are not of any importance anymore. Anyone who turned to God their life matters despite failures and shortcomings. I have no problem whether a person is dark skinned. It is there behavior that upsets me. And I am not the only one.

    However, evil forces are trying to destroy the white people, the Israelites. It has been tried before.
    By the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan I mentioned before, is the genocide of the White people in Europe.
    And Chancellor Merkel of Germany has been promoting this matter again. By allowing the masses of so-called refugees, Islamists and other colored people into Europe in 2015. They were mainly men between 20-35 years of age. The man behind this is George Soros, an Edomite (Jew).

    It is not Black Life Matters. Also financed by George Soros. It is all lives matters to God who are His own by Jesus Christ.

    Enjoy a good Sunday
    God bless and keep you.

  4. Jackie, please consider…

    Acts 17:26  And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

    Bible Commentary:

    And hath made of one blood – All the families of mankind are descended from one origin or stock. However different their complexion, features, or language, yet they are derived from a common parent. The word blood is often used to denote “race, stock, kindred.” This passage affirms that all the human family are descended from the same ancestor; and that, consequently, all the variety of complexion, etc., is to be traced to some other cause than that they were originally different races created. The design of the apostle in this affirmation was probably to convince the Greeks that he regarded them all as brethren; that, although he was a Jew, yet he was not enslaved to any narrow notions or prejudices in reference to other people. It follows from the truth here stated that no one nation, and no individual, can claim any pre-eminence over others in virtue of birth or blood. All are in this respect equal; and the whole human family, however they may differ in complexion, customs, and laws, are to be regarded and treated as brethren. It follows, also, that no one part of the race has a right to enslave or oppress any other part, on account of difference of complexion.

    I ask you to remove this post because it strongly misrepresents true Christianity.

      1. Miss Jackie,
        I went to the link that you provided for “christogenea”

        And I found this on their site:

        https://mk.christogenea.org/node/4873

        “we will also present papers, as an ongoing project, demonstrating that Adolf Hitler was a good Christian man who cared deeply about his race, and followed the examples of Christ rather than just the lip-service found in modern churches,”

        ~

        Rather than assume you know about their white supremacy thinking…

        Are you aware that they think that way miss Jackie?

  5. Yes Jackie I’ve gone to the links. William Finck of Christogenea is associated with the “League of the South – Poverty Law Center” which a white supremecist group. They identify themselves in this way on their website… “The “godly” nation envisioned by the League of the South (LOS) would be run by an “Anglo-Celtic” (read: white) elite that would establish a Christian theocratic state and politically dominate black people and other minorities.” Jesus has nothing to do with that.

  6. Also, read my response to Mr. Lee.
    The Anglo-Saxon, the Celtic, the Germanic, and the Scandinavian people are the Israelites. They crossed the Caucasus, which is where the word Caucasian comes from. They further migrated to the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
    Search the Bible, read history, and look at the historical maps.

    The Arab people, the Jews, and the black minorities are the ones who want to destroy the white people. Because the white people are the people from the Bible. The majority doesn’t even know it. I once was there but after an in-depth search in the Bible and history. I had to admit many of my past views were wrong. I can assure, you Cathy, it was rough going.

    You are welcome to do whatever you prefer to do with this information.

  7. History describes who Hitler was. Many people are convinced that he was evil. And I am one of them. Some people say he was not all that bad.

    Anyway, the fact still, remains that Jesus was not a Jew nor did He ever introduce Himself as Jew. This claim of Christogenea is correct.
    However, I removed the link to that website from the post and comment section.

    1. Hi miss Jackie,

      I prayed for you just now, and it sorrows my heart to see my friend miss Jackie taken in by those sort of propagandists.

      You’ve mentioned a few times that Jesus never claimed that He was a Jew.

      Well, while He walked the earth, many of His statements communicated that He was was God, but He never technically said the phrase “I am God.”

      But of course we know that He is God.

      So the fact that Jesus never said the phrase “I am a Jew” is irrelevant.

      God is no respecter of persons miss Jackie, and our being white is irrelevant to God, just as it should be to us.

      I will pray that you come out of that mess that’s gotten a hold of you.
      Because I care about you as my friend.
