Jew Plus+

I have a rather close Jewish friend (Jewish by both religion and probable blood-descendancy from Jacob of Isaac of Abraham) who maintains that what Christians call "The Old Testament" (of the Holy Bible) is (to him) instead: "The Jewish Bible."

I hesitate to mention former-IDF-recruit Ilan Sharon by name, as I also am reluctant to mention the color of Napoleon's white horse, because if Ilan (and others of his temporarily-biased? mindset) humbly and thoughtfully get the understanding but proudly and stubbornly lack the courage ["C'mon, grow a pair!"] to actually admit and profess what I am about to propose, the following Scripture verses will pertain concerning them:

Deuteronomy 20:1 When you go forth to war against your enemies, and see horses and chariots and an army larger than your own, you shall not be afraid of them; for the LORD your God is with you, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt.
Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; be not frightened, neither be dismayed; for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.
Proverbs 29:25 The fear of humans lays a snare, but one who trusts in the LORD is safe.
Jeremiah 1:17 But you, gird up your loins; get up, and say to them everything that I command you. Do not be dismayed by them, lest I dismay you before them.
Ezekiel 2:6 And you, son of man, be not afraid of them, nor be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns are with you and you sit upon scorpions; be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, for they are a rebellious house.
Ezekiel 3:9 Like adamant harder than flint have I made your forehead; fear them not, nor be dismayed at their looks, for they are a rebellious house.
John 9:22 His parents said this because they feared "the" "jews," for "the" "jews" had already agreed that if any one should confess Him to be Christ, they were to be put out of the synagogue.
John 12:42 Nevertheless many even of the [Jewish] authorities believed in him, but for fear of the Pharisees they did not confess it, lest they should be put out of the synagogue....
Philippians 1:28 ...and not frightened in anything by your opponents. This is a clear omen to them of their destruction, but of your salvation, and that from God.

Ilan himself admitted that much of what he termed "the Jewish Bible" [which term he was probably associating with the Old Testament of Torah/Pentateuch plus Prophets plus Writings from Genesis to Malachi] is contained in what he termed "the Christian Bible" [which term he was probably associating with The New Testament of the Holy Bible].

How true. Within the New Testament are copious references to most books of the Old Testament by The-Master-Jew Jesus according to master-Jew gospel-authors Matthew, Mark, Luke, John and the epistles of theological-Jews Paul and Peter and James and Jude plus the anonymous Jewish author of the New-Testament book of Hebrews.

Notice that I said that the authors of the New Testament were Jewish, and spoke of The Master-Jew Jesus the Messiah and Christ.

Did Adolf Hitler forget or disregard that?

How much more "Jewish" can the New Testament get?

True, the entirety of the New Testament itself is not typically and exclusively considered a "Jewish" nor even "Hebrew" masterpiece, and the Old Testament alone is not usually deemed a "Christian" book.

However, because of the numerous references in the New Testament to what is contained in the Old Testament, the combination of the Old and the New Testaments of the complete Holy Bible could well be termed: "The Complete Jewish Bible" - applicable to BOTH Jews (a significant component of all Israelis within the State of Israel) and gentiles (i.e. non-Jews).

Are we forgetting the Arab descendants of Ishmael?

Romans 9:7 ...and not all are children of Abraham because they are his descendants; but "...through Isaac shall your descendants be named."
Galatians 4:30 But what does the scripture say? "Threw out the slave [Hagar] and her [Arab/"palestinian"/anti-Zionist] son [Ishmael]; for the son of the slave shall not inherit with the son of the free woman."

Keep that in mind, CAIR and ISIS and all Iranian government officials.

But concerning jews not yet Jews who are self-sufficiently trapped with their heads-in-the-sand anti-Christian prejudice and cultic misinformation which they have naively and gullibly presumed from deviously deceptive sources of pseudo-knowledge, consider the following quotation:

Matthew 3:9 ...and do not presume to say to yourselves: "We have Abraham as our father"; for I tell you, God is able from these stones to raise up children to Abraham.
Luke 3:8 Bear fruits that befit repentance, and do not begin to say to yourselves: "We have Abraham as our father"; for I tell you, God is able from these stones to raise up children to Abraham.

John 8:41 You do what your father did." They said to Him: "We were not born of fornication [and thus were they insinuating the lie that Jesus was not virgin-born, and did not believe the extensive Jewish-lineage geneologies of Jesus recorded in Matthew chapter 1 and Luke chapter 3?]; we have one Father, even God."
8:42 Jesus said to them: "If God were your Father, you would love me, for I proceeded and came forth from God; I came not of my own accord, but He sent me.
8:43 Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to hear my word. [Clearly and obviously!]
8:44 You are of your father the Devil, and your will is to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
8:45 But, because I tell the truth, you do not believe me.
8:46 Which of you convicts me of sin? If I tell the truth, why do you not believe me?
8:47 He who is of God hears the words of God; why you do not hear them is that you are not of God."
8:48 The Jews answered Him: "Are we not right in saying that you are a Samaritan and have a demon?"
8:49 Jesus answered: "I have not a demon; but I honor my Father, and you dishonor me.
8:50 Yet I do not seek my own glory; there is One who seeks it and He will be The Judge.
8:51 Truly, truly, I say to you, if any one keeps my word, he will never see death."
8:52 The Jews said to Him: "Now we know that you have a demon. Abraham died, as did the prophets; and you say, 'If any one keeps my word, he will never taste death.'
8:53 Are you greater than our father Abraham, who died? And the prophets died! Who do you claim to be?"
8:54 Jesus answered: "If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing; it is my Father who glorifies me, of whom you say that he is your God.
8:55 But you have not known Him; I know Him. If I said, I do not know Him, I would be a liar like you; but I do know Him and I keep His word.
8:56 Your father Abraham rejoiced that he was to see my day; he saw it and was glad."
8:57 The Jews then said to Him: "You are not yet fifty years old, and have you seen Abraham?"
8:58 Jesus said to them: "Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM."[remember what was said by The Voice who Moses heard from The Burning Bush]
8:59 So they took up stones to throw at Him; but Jesus hid Himself, and went out of the temple.

Romans 2:28 For [he/she] is not a real Jew who is one outwardly, nor is true circumcision something external and physical.
Romans 2:29 [He] is a Jew who is one inwardly, and real circumcision is a matter of the heart, spiritual and not literal. [His] praise is not from [men] but from God.

Philippians 3:3 For we are the true circumcision, who worship God in spirit, and glory in Christ Jesus, and put no confidence in the flesh. [Israelis cannot save themselves without the help of Christ and Christians!]

And are the following referencing merely blood-descendant-from-Jacob "Jews" - or also gentiles of faith in God and Christ as described in Romans 2:28-29?

Revelation 2:9 I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich) and the slander of those who say that they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.
Revelation 3:9 Hey, I will make those of the synagogue of Satan who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie....hey, I will make them come and bow down before your feet, and learn that I have loved you.

The true-Jewish identity of all Israelis in Israel dedicated to fearfully or apprehensively protecting their God-apportioned homeland in the Middle East with territorial borders described in Ezekiel chapter 47, MUST be comprised of MORE than blood descendency from Jacob and alterable varieties of somewhat-strange-to-gentiles idiosyncratic or strange customs, traditions, rituals, and practices of "jewishness," consisting of a belief in and dependence upon the Creator God of atonement, redemption, and salvation manifested in His Jewish Son Jesus Christ the Messiah and Lord, with dedicated and reliable fervent faith and works conveying their allegiance to the same.

The very survival of the State of Israel and those therein depends upon that.

Noteworthy it is that BOTH the Old and the New Testament contain Divinely-apportioned appropriations for BOTH Jew and Gentile.

The Old-Testament contains inclusion of non-Jew "independent-auditor" Melchizedek, Egyptian Pharaoh promoting Joseph to Vice President, gentile Balaam who blessed Israel, Ruth the Moabitess, gentile Ahasuerus King of Esther, gentile Nebuchadnezzar who spared Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego plus Daniel, Cyrus the Persian, and other non-Jews are seamlessly integrated into the overall survival picture of Israel...and the New-Testament books written by Jewish authors give FIRST preference to Jews as PRIMARY and initial targets for witnessing to and becoming converts, to varying degrees of success and lack thereof.

To wit:

John 4:22 You worship what you know not; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews.

Romans 3:1 What advantage then has the Jew? Or what profit is there of circumcision?
Romans 3:2 Much every way: mainly, because to them were committed the oracles of God.

Romans 11:28 Regarding The Gospel they are enemies against God, for your sake; but pertaining to election they are beloved for the sake of their forefathers.

So, is the Old Testament alone considered a "Jewish" Bible....or should it be regarded as an INCOMPLETE Jewish Bible by itself? Should the combined Old and New Testaments be considered the COMPLETE Jewish Bible. Can, as Jerry Falwell did, declare the combined Old and New Testaments of the Sacred-66-books Holy Bible: "The Judeo-Christian BIble?"

The Old Testament alone is woefully insufficient, inadequate, incomplete. The New Testament alone is pathetically insufficient, inadequate, and incomplete.

The successful warrior of the LORD cannot have only the Old nor only the New as his arsenal against Satan, demons, and their human accomplices.

The Spirit of G-d Himself insists that revelation of His ENTIRE will for humans, of necessity, REQUIRES no more and no less than THE TOTAL Sacred-66-books Holy Bible, and is the Divine Enforcer of that mandate by any and all Acts of God and human-soldier(s) means at His disposal.
