    Tammy, re-write your post and insert the name “Zeus” in place of “Jesus.” Would you feel the same? Would you want people who had hope in Zeus as a healer and a teacher to continue to follow that false god — he gave people hope, didn’t he? Zeus was loved and revered in the pagan world. . . but I highly doubt you would want to leave people in ignorance to worship Zeus.

    This is what you are asking Jono, Rabbi Skobac and others to do. . . to leave people worshiping false gods because it “feels good.” Would you let a child drink poison (like antifreeze) because it tastes good, or would you save your child’s life and knock the poison out of his hands?

    You are asking Jono and the Rabbi to let believers following a false god to endanger their immortal souls and continue to drink the poison. In the Book of Kings, Elijah the prophet tells some Jewish apostates worshiping the false god Ba’al: “How long will you waver between two opinions? If the Lord is G-d, follow Him: but if Baal, follow him.” In other words, you are either a Jew or a worshiper of Baal; you can’t be both.:

    Every religion gives people a “good feeling” — including Islam, Buddhism and other religions. Yet the Torah tells us not to follow false gods no matter how good it might make us feel. “If there should stand up in your midst a prophet or a dreamer of a dream, and he will produce to you a sign or a wonder, [3] and the sign or the wonder comes about, of which he spoke to you, saying “Let us follow gods of others that you did not know (at Sinai) and we shall worship them. [4] do not hearken to the words of that prophet or to that dreamer of a dream, for HASHEM, your G-d, is testing you to know whether you love HASHEM, your G-d with all your heart and with all your soul. [5] HASHEM, your G-d, shall you follow and Him shall you fear; His commandments shall you observe and to His voice shall you hearken; Him shall you serve and to Him shall you cleave. [6] And that prophet and that dreamer of a dream shall be put to death, for he had spoken perversion against HASHEM, your G-d Who takes you out of the land of Egypt, and Who redeems you from the house of slavery to make you stray from the path on which HASHEM, you G-d, has commanded you to go; and you shall destroy the evil from your midst.” (Artscroll) Devarim / Deuteronomy 13)

    From what I gather there are many perceived gods of this world, and then there is the God of Israel, the God of the Jewish people.

    Mankind has been granted a choice of who and what to believe in, and even the Jewish people, who I believe are the chosen people of our Creator, are given this choice.

    Deu 30:17-19 But if your heart turns away, and you will not hear, but are drawn away to worship other gods and serve them, I declare to you today, that you shall surely perish. You shall not live long in the land that you are going over the Jordan to enter and possess. I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live,

    Having been a Christian, the difficulty I now clearly see is that the [Greek] New Testament is written on top of the Hebrew Scriptures, the foundation of the Jewish faith. So following Jesus is parallel to worshiping the [Greek] Zeus as a pagan god, although believing in Jesus is extremely problematic because of the claim that he is based upon the “Old Testament” Hebrew Tanakh.

    Deu 4:2 You shall not add to the word that I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of YHVH your God that I command you.

    Therefore worshiping Zeus with no association to the Hebrew Tanakh is one thing, but worshiping Jesus supposedly based upon the Hebrew Tanakh, as conveyed in error by the Christians, is another.

    This gives reason for the Jewish people to have every right to defend their faith and refute the claims of Jesus in Christianity, even if it may take away their hope in him.

    My thought is that if someone wants to believe in a false god and it gives them comfort so be it. What I appreciate about the teachings is I am learning that what I was worshiping was indeed a false god and I can make the choice to follow the God of Israel. It is now an informed decision.

    I was just wondering if you had lived during the time of Yeshua if you would have said, “release to us Barrabus”?

  6. Admin2 says

    Hi Cynthia – Jason here, I thought i’d offer a quick reply. Did you know, outside of this story in the NT text, there is NO recorded evidence to show the roman’s offered up 2 prisoners? No roman records or tradition that the people in Judea (or anywhere else) where given a choice to release a prisoner. It simply doesn’t exist as an event. Was it a new testament invention to further vilify the Jews? Maybe, we only have the NT writers (whoever they are) word for this.. no other contemporary historian speaks of it. If you find any external information to this effect please share it 🙂

    Cynthia, thank you for your question. We will answer it in the next program.

  8. Cynthia says

    Just because there are no other records doesn’t mean it wasn’t something that happened. 🙂

  9. Sophiee Saguy says

    And just because some anonymous author of the Christian bible wrote something means that it happened either. There are many anti-Jewish texts in the Christian bible — probably because the Christians were “competing” with the Jews for converts so they wanted to make the Jews look bad.

    Pilate slaughtered tens of thousands and some 50,000 to 100,000 Jews were crucified by the Romans. The odds of him listening to the Jews about anything is slim to none. http://thejewishhome.org/counter/AntiJewishNT.pdf

  10. Cynthia says

    I think Pilate didn’t want the blood of an innocent man on his hands.

  11. Roberta says

    Cynthia – You mean to say all the other tens of thousand that Pilate did were all criminals?
