How Israel failed to understand Jesus Christ

One notable entry written in the Talmud that you won’t find in the Bible, was that the Messiah would heal the eyes of a man born blind. One of the ridiculous rules written in was that a person could not put saliva in one’s eyes.

On the Sabbath day, when Jesus encountered the man that was born blind, He spit on the ground, made mud, and put it in the eyes of the man, and told him to go wash. The Pharisees, who were such evil hypocrites, and did not want to believe that Jesus was the Messiah, got mad that He used saliva, and healed the man on the Sabbath, breaking their rules, yet fulfilling what they had written in the Talmud. Read about in it in John chapter 9.

Israel failed in their task to keep the Torah, and to convey the truth of Yehovah to other nations. The Torah (the Law) identified sin, and was a guideline for living holy. But the Jews, as was everyone else, were born with a sin nature.

The monarchial heyday of Israel was lost, and the people looked forward to the coming of the promised Messiah, who would “set everything right”. But the Jews put too much emphasis on a royal empire (return to glory), and not on salvation from sin. The Ark of the Covenant was hidden away in Mt. Moriah by Jeremiah and Levite priests in 587 BC, and the debt of the death penalty was forgotten by the people.

Unfortunately, Israel focused only on the aspect of the Messiah bringing peace to the world and re-establishing the earthly kingdom of Israel.

They forgot, or purposely ignored 1) that the seed of the woman (Yeshua), would have a minor injury yet deliver a death blow to Satan, 2) that God would raise up a Levite Prophet (Yeshua) to lead the people back to the Torah, whom they must obey. What they only focused on was the promise that a descendant of David, the Messiah, would deliver Israel and rule the world from the throne of David forever, which again, is Yeshua (Acts 1:6). But that occurs upon His third coming, when He returns to Earth with His saints. His second coming is the defeat of the antichrist, the imprisonment of Satan, and the rapture.

Israel has had selective reasoning. They have ignored the meaning of the yearly rehearsals and Temple service that King David instituted, in preparation for the coming Messiah. Every year, on the tenth day of the first month (Aviv, or Nisan), a perfect lamb was chosen from the flocks in Bethlehem, and brought through the streets of Jerusalem up to the Temple Mount, with the people shouting “Hosanna in the highest, Messiah come, Messiah come”.

The lamb was to be inspected for four days, and on the fourteenth day, the lamb is roasted in the oven to be eaten at sundown. On the following Sabbath, the First Fruits of the barley were offered in the Temple by the High Priest.

About the Author

- Herman Cummings is a computer data analyst, who used his training to analyze the written text of Genesis. On EasterSunday, in 1990, a lady stood up in Sunday School and asked the pastor “How can I teach my children about Adam & Eve, when all they are taught is evolution in school?”. The pastor could only say “Just believe the Bible”. That was of no help to the lady. So Herman Cummings began his research to resolve the issue, since the worlds of Creationism and Theology could not literally reconcile Genesis with scientific reality. After receiving the revelation of the first chapter from the Lord in December 1993, Herman Cummings became the world’s leading expert on the book of Genesis (Bereshit).
