To Be a Legitimate Follower of Ribi Yᵊho•shua Requires Following the Example Set by Ribi Yᵊho•shua and his Immediate Followers—the Nᵊtzâr•im:

Nᵊtzâr•im Tor•âh Moderate Orthodox
  1. scholarly discoveries from Dead Sea Scroll 4Q MMT documenting the unanimous view of Oral Law among all sects of 1st century Tor•âh, coupled with

  2. what the most prominent Jewish scholars regard as the most pristine Judaic tradition on the planet — No•sakh Tei•mân•i.

As a result, the Nᵊtzâr•im were restored to their 1st-century historical Pᵊrush•i-heritage within a firm niche of the moderate Orthodox Jewish community in Israel. Nᵊtzâr•im pray exclusively in Tei•mân•i or moderate Orthodox Jewish beit ha-kᵊnësët (where viable) and, while openly believing that historical Ribi Yᵊho•shua is the Mâ•shiakh, the Nᵊtzâr•im Pâ•qid has been, for more than a decade, a member in good standing of the moderate, Tei•mân•i, Orthodox beit ha-kᵊnësët, Mo•rëshët Âv•ot – Yad Nâ•âm•i, in Ra•a•nanâ(h), Israel.

So-called 'Orthodox Messianics' are yet another fraudulently-packaged group of Christian Jews. They are not practicing legitimate Pharisee-Heritage Tor•âh. Rather, every Christian—by definition—follows not Ribi Yᵊho•shua but 2nd-4th century Hellenist Romans and their redacted fabrications of their Hellenist Roman Διαθηκη Καινη (NT). Their Christian pseudo-Judaism isn‘t accepted as legitimate by any Orthodox rabbis nor by the Nᵊtzâr•im. No Christian / "Messianic" enjoys good standing in any Orthodox synagogue. By definition, every Christian / "Messianic" is a misojudaic, illegitimate, apostate, not authentically Judaic and described in Revelation 2.9 & 3.9. The multitudes who reject Christianity as defined by the Hellenist Roman Church for millennia should recognize that they are rejecting Christianity, not changing the definition of Christianity or who is a Christian. Christianity has, from its original founders in the 2nd century CE, always been misojudaic and mutually exclusive from Tor•âh. "You cannot follow two masters" – especially intractably contradictory masters.

Like our 1st-century forbears, we assist Jews and non-Jews (geir•im) to (re-)integrate into the legitimate Jewish community and, where a Tei•mân•i or moderate Orthodox beit ha-kᵊnësët is available, to pray there. As the only followers of Ribi Yᵊho•shua recognized in the legitimate Jewish community, the Nᵊtzâr•im are the only source preserving his authentic teachings according to Ribi Yᵊho•shua‘s own practice — within the legitimate Jewish community and bât•ei ha-kᵊnësët!!! Groups claiming to be Nᵊtzâr•im / Nazarenes but not recognized by the only Nᵊtzâr•im beit din (namely, in Ra•a•nanâ(h)), are neither practicing legitimate Judaism nor legitimately following Ribi Yᵊho•shua!

Discussing these concepts requires specialized terminology to distinguish authentic personna and concepts from popular, but distorted and counterfeit, images. To communicate, rather than simply regurgitate the same tired arguments which have failed without exception for millennia, requires definitions that accurately reflect authentic 1st-century Judaic values and teachings by the criteria of the latest scientific scholarship, rather than perpetuating the widespread futile confrontations which arise from contra-historical and logically oxymoronic misconceptions.

The earliest Church historian, Eusebius, recorded that the original followers of Ribi Yᵊho•shua, the Nᵊtzâr•im, accepted only our own The Nᵊtzârim Reconstruction of Hebrew Matitᵊyâhu (NHM, in English) as a legitimate account of the teachings of historical Ribi Yᵊho•shua, rejecting the post-135 C.E., Hellenist Roman-redacted Διαθηκη Καινη ("New Testament") (Eccl. Hist., III.xxvii.4) — an apostasy selectively syncretizing a Judaic spin into their native Roman Hellenism.

Many scholars have noted that the teachings of Ribi Yᵊho•shua touch on only a small fragment of the many issues of Oral Law in 1st century Tor•âh — leaving many lucanae in Ribi Yᵊho•shua‘s, and the original Nᵊtzâr•im‘s, Judaic practice. Christians fill in these lucanae with their native – gentile Hellenist and idolatrous – doctrines, which are alien, and intractably contradictory, to the 1st century Tor•âh practiced and taught by Ribi Yᵊho•shua and the Nᵊtzâr•im. Exactly the opposite of Christianity, the Nᵊtzâr•im, in cooperation with several receptive moderate Orthodox rabbis, fill in these myriad lucanae not with Christian doctrines but with:

Tor•âh, First Century & Now

Oxford historian James Parkes (The Conflict of the Church and the Synagogue, A Study in the Origins of Anti-Semitism) and others have demonstrated that the 4th century Roman version of Jesus' teachings are diametrically opposite to the pre-135 C.E. Judaic teachings (corroborated, inter alia by Dead Sea Scroll 4Q MMT) of Ribi Yᵊho•shua and his immediate Jewish followers, the Nᵊtzâr•im. The Hellenized, 4th century Roman teachings of Jesus and the church are, accordingly, apostate; and the pope, being successor to the gentile bishop who usurped and thereafter counterfeited the 15th Nᵊtzâr•im Pâ•qid to found the gentile, Hellenist, Roman Catholic papacy (and then fabricate a legendary line back to their Christianized idea of "St. Peter"), is the fulfillment and embodiment of the antichrist, identified in Who Are The Nᵊtzarim? Live-Link (WAN) by the cryptic number 666.

All of the source documents (comprehensive citations are found in our books and materials) clearly show that in the 1st-4th centuries CE, the Nᵊtzâr•imnot the Hellenist gentile Roman Christians—were the only legitimate followers of Ribi Yᵊho•shua, preserving his teachings authentically in the legitimate, halakhic, Jewish community. It is documented, and even acknowledged by Christian scholars that, until 333 C.E. when the church finally annihilated the Nᵊtzâr•im, the earliest Church documented that we rejected Christianity and the Church "insist[ing] on the complete observation of the Law," describing us as "others the wicked demon when he could not alienate them from God's plan in Christ [which Christians falsely claimed was identical to Ribi Yᵊho•shua], made his own, when he found them by a different snare" (Eusebius, EH III.xxvii.1). In other words, the earliest church bishop-popes declared the Jews who rejected Christian doctrines and the Church to be servants of the "wicked demon," Sâ•tân – Christianity was misojudaic from its original definition.

Nearly 3 centuries later, this libel of Jews manifested itself in the NT as "sons of Sâ•tân (Jn. 8.44), "under the law of sin and death" (Rom. 8.1-7) and, therefore, enemies of the Church—the root of misojudaism that would eventually express itself in the Crusades, the Inquisition and the Holocaust. Thus, while the earliest Church documented that the Nᵊtzâr•im were enemies of Christianity, the historical documentation also proves that, exactly opposite of any theorized transition from the original Nᵊtzâr•im to the Christian Church, Josephus, inter alia, documented that the Nᵊtzâr•im lived amicably among our fellow Pᵊrushim—the "Pharisees," who defended the Nᵊtzâr•im against the "Sadducees" in the "Sanhedrin" and against the Romans and "Sadducees" in the case of the murder of Pâ•qid Ya•a•qov ha-Tza•diq.

The critical point, absolutely essential to understanding these things, is this: the continued confusing of these two polar opposites, as if they are one and the same person and teaching, absolutely prevents overcoming "antisemitism."

Blurring the two polar opposites, as if they were the same, glosses over all contradictions by deferring them to an impossible oxymoron of two mutually exclusive and self-contradicting, polar-opposite arch-enemies, assuming a non-existent transition and a co-existing merger of intractable self-contradictions in "Jesus." This logical fallacy of ex falso quodlibet is what allows Christians to falsely claim "Jewishness" (and historicity) of "Jesus" and still identify with Christianity – because, no matter how contradictory that may be, all contradictions are buried in the oxymoronic definitions, allowing them to believe that they're following "Jesus."

Worse, unknowingly, Ultra-Orthodox and Kha•reid•im Jews are ignorantly preaching this same Christian gospel (that the Hellenist Christian Jesus and, lᵊ-ha•vᵊdil, the historical Jew Ribi Yᵊho•shua are the same)—thereby complicit with the Christians in dressing the authentic, Pᵊrush•i Ribi Yᵊho•shua in the " " (Zᵊkhar•yâh 3.3) of, lᵊ-ha•vᵊdil, the Hellenist-Roman Christian Jesus!

When a Christian or Jew speaks of the post-135 C.E. Christian figures and events, it's essential to point out that these can only be figures and events associated with the Roman-Hellenist idol Jesus – regardless if (s)he calls it by a Hebrew name. (You can call excrement a rose, but excrement by any other name smells the same.) At most, accounts attributed to the lifetime of Ribi Yᵊho•shua are extensively redacted by later Hellenist Roman gentile Christians to reflect their idolatrous perspective. No meaningful communication can occur without consistent definitions, free of intrinsic contradictions that, otherwise, constitute the logical fallacy of ex falso quodlibet and propagate through any discussion.

Conversely, when a Christian or Jew speaks of the pre-135 C.E. Judaic figure, anyone wishing to understand must recognize that, prior to 135 C.E. there was no Christianity or Christian Church as it was defined, and understood ever since, subsequent to 135 C.E. Therefore, except for (perhaps Στεφανος and) Παυλος the Apostate (a Hellenist Turkish-Jew) and his followers, these can only be figures and events associated with the actual historical Jewish Pᵊrush•i Ribi—regardless if (s)he slanders him by calling him Jesus. (You can call a rose excrement, but a rose by any other name smells as sweet.) Nevertheless, accounts attributed to the lifetime of Ribi Yᵊho•shua are extensively redacted by later Hellenist Roman gentile Christians to reflect their idolatrous perspective. No meaningful communication can occur without consistent definitions, free of intrinsic contradictions that, otherwise, constitute the logical fallacy of ex falso quodlibet and propagate through any discussion. Only NHM makes the maximum effort to restore the strictly Tor•âh-compatible meaning to Hebrew Ma•tit•yâhu that existed before the thousands of pre-Christian redactions that corrupt the Christian Διαθηκη Καινη (NT) – which the Nᵊtzâr•im rejected.

Neither Ribi Yᵊho•shua nor -- has changed. The same is true today. Only those (whether Jew or non-Jewish geir) practicing the same religion, and within the same—Pharisee moderate Orthodox—Jewish community as Ribi Yᵊho•shua, are authentic or legitimate. The Nᵊtzâr•im under the leadership of Pâ•qid Yi•rᵊmᵊyâhu in Israel are the only followers of Ribi Yᵊho•shua as Mâ•shiakh in the moderate Orthodox Jewish community on the planet – and, therefore, the only legitimate followers of Ribi Yᵊho•shua. All others, including every Christian and everyone calling themselves "Netzarim" and similar, everyone that believes in the "New Testament," are phony. (Documentation and details in the book WAN Live-Link Technology.)

The Nᵊtzâr•im of today, like Ribi Yᵊho•shua and his immediate Nᵊtzâr•im followers in their time, are the only followers of Ribi Yᵊho•shua to reject the Hellenist (Roman pagan) apostasy of the antichrist and restore his authentic—pre-135 C.E. Judaic (as demonstrated from Dead Sea Scroll (4Q) MMT (Mi•qᵊtz•at Ma•as•ëh ha-Tor•âh))—teachings in the religious community with which Ribi Yᵊho•shua identified: the Pᵊrushim (today's moderate Orthodox – not Ultra-Orthodox or Kha•reid•i – i.e., legitimate, Jewish Community) and in legitimate, i.e. moderate Orthodox, Judaism. Therefore, the Nᵊtzâr•im are the only followers or Ribi Yᵊho•shua who can possibly be legitimate!!! All others professing to follow the Displacement Theology apostasy of the Roman-Hellenists and their antichrist —regardless of the name they cite (Jesus, Yᵊho•shua, Yᵊshua, et al.)—have been deceived, and are deceiving others, into the synagogue described in Revelation 2.9 & 3.9!!!

The Honorable 16th Pâ•qid of the Nᵊtzâr•im,
Yi•rᵊmᵊyâhu Bën-Dâ•wid
an Orthodox Jew having achieved good standing
with the moderate Orthodox Israeli Jewish community
Christianity & Jewish-Christian Pseudo-Judaism =
Displacement Theology, Anti-Semitism & Antinomianism

Those who claim to follow Ribi Yᵊho•shua but aren't accepted by an Orthodox beit-din in the same community in which Ribi Yᵊho•shua lived and interacted—the moderate Orthodox (not Ultra-Orthodox or Kha•reid•i) = Pᵊrush•im Israeli Jewish community—and openly in an Orthodox beit ha-kᵊnësët—are the fakes, charlatans and deceivers described in Rev. 2:9 & 3:9, foisting Displacement Theology and a misojudaic, antinomian, counterfeit messiah, playing an insidious game of 'pretend Judaism'—producing correspondingly pretend salvation!
