I ask here as I havnt found anywhere else to ask.
I started to look for the reasons the Torah is part of the bible and not the Talmud.
I found they are both written at the same time, about 70ad/ce.
Once I began reading the Talmud the answer became obvious.
Then I had to ask myself, why do Christians support Israel?
I look for a legitimate answer as it is very odd indeed.
Isreal, is very Tamlidic Jewish, so why the support when these people consider the worship of Jesus idoltry? They say Mary was a prostitute and Jesus is now in hell boiling in excrement. How is it they have Christian support?
I do not go into depth, with what the Talmud purports, but its "thinking" is very much along these lines, especially when it says that debts to gentiles need not be repaid and that murder of a gentile is not considered murder.
So, my legitimate and sincere question, How is it that Christians support Isreal?
Two recent events was the destruction of the place Jesus was baptised by John and the destruction of the Tomb of Jonah, Christian holy sites, why no mention? and how is it that Christians either support or don't mention these events?
I find this confusing, what is it I don't understand?
Thank you for your effort in answering.
The Zionist Movement, which began in the late 1800's, along with Dispensationalism which is a system of interpreting the end-times aspects of the Bible was also developed in the late 1800's. Dispensationalism has become a system of interpreting the Bible just as Systematic Theology is a system of Bible interpretation. Dispensationalism and Zionism are focused on the Jews and what is called their earthly blessings which have been promised to them and these are to be fulfilled sometime in the future. This is the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Search for more information on the Zionist Movement. If you search deeply enough you are going to find something that may surprise you and that is that the vast majority of Jews wish that Christians would mind their own business, leave Israel alone, and stop promoting the fact that Israel is confined to a tiny Middle Eastern country. Most Jews believe that God wanted them to affect all of the world and not be focused on a small piece of real estate. Check me out on that. Hermann Cohen was a Jewish philosopher who still has a profound influence on Jews today, especially the Reformed and Messianist (don't confuse with Messianic as they are not related) Jews.
John Hagee is an example of an extreme Zionist and Full Dispensational. He teaches that there are two covenants in effect. He claims that the Old Covenant is in effect and any Jew who follows the Torah is just as saved as a Christian who is under the authority of Christ. He tells Christians to leave the Jews alone and to not evangelize them because God considers them to still be His people under the Old Covenant. That is called Covenantal Nomism. The New Covenant is not in effect and the Book of Hebrews has no meaning to Christians, according to these people. The New Covenant is to take effect when Christ begins His earthly reign on the Earth. Christians are to have heavenly blessings. Christians will be raptured from the Earth and never return.
Partial Dispensationals believe that Christ will reign for a thousand years in the future. When He does the Temple will be rebuilt, the Mosaic Law, priesthood, and animal sacrifices will be restored. The Israelites who make it through the Great Tribulation (2/3 are to die) will be left to go to the world and evangelize the Gentiles. There are Christians today who have been convinced by Zionist preachers that they are still Gentiles and inferior to the Jews. They say that they know what Christ accomplished on the cross but then they contradict this verse:
Galatians 3:16 Now the promises were made to Abraham and to his offspring. It does not say, "And to offsprings," referring to many, but referring to one, "And to your offspring," who is Christ.
If you are in Christ you are the benefactor of the promises made to Abraham. Who is the benefactor of the promises? Christ. We share in those benefits as joint heirs with Christ. Before the foundation of the world God envisioned the Church. The Church are collectively ALL of His people, the elect.
