Dead Jew on a stick?
Re: Patriotism and exceptionalism
“So said the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer the Lord of Hosts, “I am first and I am last, and besides Me there is no God.” (Isaiah 44:6)
Yes, the One revealed to Israel could not be compared to the idols of the nations, but the Kingdom-Family of God is revealed in the plural name of Elohim for those with eyes to see, who have taken off their traditional veil.
Your dead Jew on a stick was a non-starter.
You sound awful hateful and anti-Semitic. You sure you’re not a wannabe Roman soldier?
Furthermore, I’m not a Roman Catholic with their idolatrous crucifixes or a Protestant with their idolatrous pictures, images of what some imagine “Jesus” must have looked like. I know my Redeemer lives. He is not a dead Jew on a pole, like Moses saw and foreshadowed with the serpent on the stake that folks had to look up to in order to be healed.
Retention of Jewish names is one of the reasons given for Israel having been deservant of redemption from Egypt
I’ve read that before, but to be more accurate (something you’ve failed time and again historically and biblically), their names were Hebrew - not “Jewish.” When will you ever learn?
