Galatians 3:29 - And if ye be Christ's then are ye Abraham seed, and heirs according to the promise,
---RichardC on 3/20/15


Jewish by ancestory is by bloodline.

But Jewish by faith is by being born again.


Rom 2:28,29

For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly, neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:
But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly, and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter, whose praise is not of men, but of God.

A True Jewish person, the blood line, born into it.

Not the foolishness of orthodoxy, thinking they are Jewish, trying to be Jewish. Which are Not Jewish.

Boy! I sure hope Dan did not get himself circumcized.

He seems to disappear!

**What does the laws of GOD written in the heart instruct one to do?
Since love of ones neighbor fulfills the law, all laws of God written on believers hearts should reflect that goal.
---leonia on 4/11/11

Nice,really. Out of the box.
Rom13:10
Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

Brethren...least of was key in your verse posted.
Esau was an actual brother.
Yet,Romans 9:13
As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.
14What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid.
15For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.

There are those that would believe the New Cov is simply a rehash of the Old and that Old Cov laws are still in effect. They fiddle around with God's word and preach one must abstain from certain foods and observe certain days.
---leonia on 4/10/11

What does the laws of GOD written in the heart instruct one to do? These should have a better applica of the Old.
i can't judge on what persons "laws in heart and mind" tell them when these are seen on the heart.
Laws with heart and mind extension are in a better place.
i don't get involved in eats/days debates if possible.
Rom 14:3
Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not,let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him.

Trav - Very good and true!

Hebr 8:9f Behold, the days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will establish a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah,not like the covenant that I made with their fathers on the day when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt.

There are those that would believe the New Cov is simply a rehash of the Old and that Old Cov laws are still in effect. They fiddle around with God's word and preach one must abstain from certain foods and observe certain days.

Jesus said I am the Way and the truth and the Life. He did not say religion is the way, truth & life as some would preach.

A Jew is not only a Jew with regards to only race identity of the tabernacle of clay.
---johanns_dawood on 4/9/11


Elaborate that some more Johanns.....to our benefit.

I understand that a Jew/Judah is found in many places. From Jacobs son to Revelations.
I find that the other "Sheep of Israel" are also found equally in the same if not more scripture.
Tabernacle of Clay....interesting I'll chase that one a little.
Love it. Found one I'd overlooked.
Jeremiah 18:6
O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.

Thank you very much trav for agreeing that you do not know everything.
---leonia on 4/8/11

Ha. Leonia, I will be the first to tell you anything I found scripturally was pointed to by some other seeker. Except woman at well.
Note....the scriptures that I point to that make certain doctrinals furious. Incredible to me that scripture causes this...anger...and other it is a "tell".

You caused me to look at that covenant from a different direction. You "pointed" i'm seeking truth... i looked....again. For at minimum the thousandth time.

Notice Heb8:10/Jer 31:31...those NCov Laws are written in heart/mind. Diff from the OT of stone.
---Trav on 4/9/11


Thank you very much trav for agreeing that you do not know everything.

In any case, we can agree that when a person become a Christian, born of His Spirit, that we do not become Jewish and subject to OT laws not found within the New Covenant.

trav **....How can something that is everlasting become obsolete?
---leonia on 4/8/11

Now I'm no expert just a seeker pointer,provoker...traveler,sinner etc,etc,etc. Last Covenant is Everlasting. Death made the first Obsolete by Marriage Laws of GOD.

Even two covenants back to back are an "everlasting" covenant come to think of it.

Just a continuation....new/improved as stated.
Your Husband....covenanted with you in marriage. It is until death. Death frees the widow or Husband. Christ death freed both houses Nth and Sth of "ALL" Israel.
10 virgins ring a bell? 10 coins,servants etc.

---Trav on 4/8/11


trav **Confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant: ...

If that covenant was an 'everlasting covenant' then why was there a need for God to establish a New Covenant?

Could it just be that the Old Covenant had too many faults and would not work?

Heb 8:8 For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:

And was not the Old Covenant declared to become obsolete? Hebrews 8:13.

How can something that is everlasting become obsolete?

Well Dan since you are a Jew now. How does that effect you?
---John on 4/5/11

Well I can show him it may affect him in some scriptural ways.
Although a royal line, he will be a servant if he makes it as a Christian. Although tested and hated if he is a Christian, by more especially by his own Judah...he will find love incomparable. Jealousy's...Oh yes by misunderstanding and misapplication of scriptures as noted.

He may be sifted by GOD but, there are worse things than this sifting sounds.

For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth.

---John on 4/5/11


God is not a prejudicial racist, nor a respecter of persons: for he looks upon each individual heart, and judges accordingly. For Jesus has made out of One Blood All Nations of men for to dwell upon all the face of the earth, not two bloods, but One Blood. And Christ is the Israel of God, and Christ inhabits every Christian. The Jew whom rejects Christ is rejected by God, and the Jew whom accepts Christ is accepted by God. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, for you all are one in Christ Jesus. And if you all Christ's, then are you all Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

Where did that thing about a Jewish mother making you Jewish come from? I have not found that in the Bible. ---Bill_willa6989 on 4/4/11


Bill, that came as a result of WWII. However we know from scripture Ruth was not a Jew by blood, nor Rahab, but they embraced the Jewish faith, and teh God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Their children were not considered 1/2 Jew either.

(c: hmm . . . I don't think Jewish people have any say about who you are. God knows. Where did that thing about a Jewish mother making you Jewish come from? I have not found that in the Bible. If you have *any* non-Jewish genes, my opinion is you are not purely flesh and blood Jewish. And in the Bible it seems the man has the say about a lot of things. So, may be certain people have been changing things to be contrary to God's way and word. Since when do humans decide who you are???

You are only a Jew is you have visited the rabbi for circumcision.

Circumcision is the rite of entrance into Judaism and without it, you will not be recognized as a Jew but only as a Gentile.

Once performed you are obligated to observe all the tenets of Judaism including the Levitical dietary laws, the Sabbath, the Passover, as well as the various feasts.

According to Gods word, which consists of two words or two laws or two covenants, which is the old and the new, B.C. and A.D.: Brit Attiq or Old Testament, consisting of the Torah (TaNaKh), and Brit Chadashah or New Testament, consisting of the Gennisi eulogos (GaZA), you are Jewish through Christ Jesus, whom is from the tribe of Judah, whom is from Jacob surnamed Israel, whom is from Yitzhak, whom is from Abraham the friend of God.

You are on a Christian web site. A sheep searching for shepherd? Ask the only one who is and can answer. Your Lord...our Lord. Ask him,seek him...knock he'll answer. He's been looking expecting you.

Eze 37:19 Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah,make them one stick, they shall be one in mine hand.

According to the usual Rabbinic law, Judaism is inherited through the male line, Abraham, the father of nations and the friend of God, unless the person involved has embraced another faith.

---John on 4/3/11


So, your first name is Daniel. Daniel is an English form of a Jewish name. Daniel means something like "judge of God". The "el" part is a Jewish word for "God". Yes, in Hebrew, I understand, a Jewish name is made of regular vocabulary words so each Hebrew name has a meaning. So, if someone called you Daniel in Hebrew, they would be calling you what sounds like "Judge of God", maybe (c: It might be like how tribal peoples could call someone "Dancing Bear", "Fat Lazy Turtle", the name telling something about the person. Bible Jewish names could turn out to have prophetic meanings that God arranged for people to be named.
---Bill_willa6989 on 4/3/11


According to the usual Rabbinic law, Judaism is inherited through the female line, unless the person involved has embraced another faith, such as Christianity.

Reform and Conservative Jews hold that Jewishness can be inherited through either parent, unless the individual embraces another faith--but oddly enough, not atheism.

The Nazis had different laws.

However, if you think being of Jewish descent gives you special standing before God, it doesn't.
