The Talmud: Judaism’s “Holy Book”
Independently Researched and Verified
By Neyo Webster
The Cradle of the Talmud
The cradle of the Talmud is the Northeast African country called Babylon or Babylonia. After the Diaspora (ac. 70 AD), some Jews made their way to Babylon, modern-day Iraq to codify the tradition of the Elders, the oral religious law of the Pharisees during the time of Jesus Christ, the true Messiah of Israel. Talmud means “teaching.” One who studies the Talmud is called a “talmid chacham”. The talmid chacham essentially devotes his life to the study of the Talmud which is the religious foundation of Rabbinic Judaism.
The Talmud evolved in its codification within the span of 566-1095 A.D., the time designated as the Dark Ages. As we know this era is known for having the least spiritual and intellectual light. The historical context in which this book was formed is astounding. (I will use the latin A.D.-Anno Domini- “Year of our Lord” as a preference, as the secular scholars use BCE, etc. as their frame of reference for recording time).
The Structure of the Talmud
The Talmud is comprised of the Mishna and the Gemara. The Mishna is the commentary on the Old Testament texts, the Hebrew Tanach, a term given by the Rabbinic Judaics. The Gemara is the commentary on the commentary of the Gemara. Within the Talmud, you find the Halacha, which are the laws established by the Rabbis. In addition to the Halacha is the Haggadah. The Haggadah is the portion of the Talmud that deals with the legend and the saga of the book. In fact, halacha means “rule” or “norm” and halacha means “legend” or “saga.”
The Exposition of Halacha
To expound a bit more on halacha, I will consult Arsene Darmesteter’s The Talmud, translated from the French into the English by Henrietta Szold, an ardent Zionist, influenced by Theodore Herzl, one of the founding fathers of Zionism.
Darmesteter says that the Halacha is “LAW in all its authority; it constitutes dogma and cult; it is the fundamental element of the Talmud(my emphasis)…” He continues that the language of the Mishna is “a Hebrew that has suffered a strong Chaldaic infusion, and has freely adopted Latin and especially Greek words, the Mishna is written in a simple style, so concise as sometimes to be obscure.”
The Two Talmuds
There are actually two Talmuds: the Jerusalem (or Palestinian) Talmud and the Babylonian Talmud. Darmesteter says it most concisely regarding the historical progression of both Talmuds: “This, then, brings us to the Gemara, the perpetual commentary following the Mishna in all its divisions and subdivisions. It has come down to us in two different forms or redactions. The one is the work of the Palestinian schools, and it was drawn up in Tiberias in about 380; the other emanates from the Babylonmian academies at Sora, Nehardea, and Pumbeditha, and was reduced to writing by R. Ashi and his disciple Rabina, receiving its final shape from R. Jose in about 500. The Babylonian Gemara, improperly called the Babylonian Talmud(emphasis added), is clearer and more complete than the Palestinian Gemara improperly called the Jerusalem Talmud.(emphasis added) The former, therefore, was adopted by the synagogue, and the other, of higher importance to critical research by reason of its greater antiquity, was neglected by the Rabbis of the middle ages (known also as the “Dark Ages”), and has reached us in damaged condition and not without having lost many a page in its journey across the centuries.”
He proceeds to add, “Unfortunately, too, there exists but one manuscript copy of the Jerusalem Talmud, that used for the editio princeps; no other manuscript by the aid of which its mutilated text might be corrected and preserved.”
Of the Bablylonian Talmud, Darmesteter discloses, “Its Babylonian rival has had a happier lot; manuscripts are not lacking, though for the most part fragmentary, and up to 1864 there had appeared forty-four editions of this Talmud, including the Mishna, the Gemara, and the commentaries, all paged alike, each edition numbering thousands of copies, each containing 2,947 leaves, divided into twelve massive folios.”
The Talmud is Written in Low Hebrew
Essentially the Talmud is written in a low Hebrew due to the linguistic degeneracy of the Rabbis. We will now progress on to the spiritual degeneracy of the Rabbis and Rabbinic Judaism (a bastardization of Torah Yahve – the Law of Yahweh or Yirath Yahve – the Fear of Yahweh). “Judaism” as we know it today is not the religion of the Old Testament. Jesus Christ and the prophets before him were not practitioners of Judaism.
The Origin of The Term “Judaism”
The designation “Judaism” was actually coined by the black Jewish historian Josephus. Here is the story from the eminent Rabbis Adoph Hess and H.G. Enlow in their 1903 publication Yahvism and Other Discourses:
“IT WAS FLAVIUS JOSEPHUS, WRITING FOR THE INSTRUCTION OF GREEKS AND ROMANS, WHO COINED THE TERM JUDAISM, in order to pit it against Hellenism…by Hellenism was understood the civilization, comprising the language, poetry, religion, art, science, manners, customs, institutions, which…had spread from Greece, its original home, over past regions of Europe, Asia and Africa…THE CHRISTIANS EAGERLY SEIZED UPON THE NAME…the Jews themselves, who INTENSELY DETESTED THE TRAITOR JOSEPHUS, refrained from reading his works…HENCE THE TERM JUDAISM COINED BY JOSEPHUS REMAINED ABSOLUTELY UNKNOWN TO THEM…IT WAS ONLY IN COMPARITIVELY RECENT TIMES, AFTER THE JEWS BECAME FAMILIAR WITH MODERN CHRISTIAN LITERATURE, THAT THEY BEGAN TO NAME THEIR RELIGION JUDAISM.” (Caps added for emphasis)
The Jew is the Product of the Talmud
The white Ashkenazic Jew is the product of the Talmud. The Jewish historian Herman Wouk states, “The Talmud is to this day the circulating heart’s blood of the Jewish religion. Whatever laws, customs, or ceremonies we [Jews] observe–whether Orthodox, Conservative, Reform or merely spasmodic sentimentalists–we follow the Talmud. It is our common law.” (emphasis added)
The Rabbi Ben Zion Bosker in his book, Judaism and the Christian Predicament , reveals that “Judaism is not the religion of the Bible.” The 1942 edition of The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia affirms that “The Jewish religion as it is today traces its descent, without a break, through all the centuries, from the Pharisees. Their leading ideas and methods found expression in a literature of enormous extent, of which a very great deal is still in existence. The Talmud is the largest and most important single member of that literature.” (emphases added)
The God of the Talmud
“The Talmud’s God is frankly anthropomorhic (humanized): He loves and hates, gets angry, laughs, weeps, feels remorse, wears phylacteries, sits on a throne surrounded by a ministering hierarchy of cherubim and seraphim, and studies the Torah three times a day.” (emphases added)
This is taken from Will Durant’s exhaustive historical chronology “The Story of Civilization” in the 4th volume The Age of Faith.
Ancient Hebrew Religion vs. Talmudic Tradition
Will Durant also makes a clear distinction between the “ancient Hebrews” whose “literature and religion” is the Bible and the “medieval Jews” whose “life and blood” is the Torah (Talmud). The Torah Sheh Be’al Peh is the Talmud, the religion of “the medieval Jews”. So when a Jew says they study the Torah, ask them which one? It is certainly not the Torah She Bichtav, “the literature and religion of the ancient Hebrews.” In fact, Louis Ginzburg admits in his classic Jewish work, The Legends of the Jews, admits in the Preface of volume 1 that, “The term Rabbinic was applied to Jewish Literature of post-Biblical times by those who conceived the Judaism of the later epoch to be something different from the Judaism of the Bible, something actually opposed to it.” (my emphasis)
The Preeminence of the Rabbi
Within Talmudism, the Rabbi holds the preeminent place…even God is blasphemously subjected to the rulership and edict of the Rabbis as can be implied from Durant’s observation of the Talmudic god.
Within this talmudic brand of Judaism, the Rabbi or Rebbe is “God Incarnate.” In the tractate Erubhin, f.13b, it is related that there was a difference of opinion between the two schools of Hillel and Schamai,and it was concluded in the rabbinic discourse that the words of both (schools) are the words of the living God. Another scenario is in Baba Mezia 59b: A rabbi debates God and defeats Him. God supposedly acquiesces and admits defeat to the rabbi in the debate.
Talmudic Views on the So-Called “Gentile”
The Talmud views the Gentile as refuse and subhuman. Michael Hoffman in his encyclopedic book Judaism Discovered, quotes an eminent rabbi as follows, “Gentile souls are of a completely different and inferior order. They are totally evil, with no redeeming qualities whatsover…Their material abundance derives from supernal refuse. Indeed they themselves derive from refuse , which is why they are more numerous than the Jews…” The rabbi quoted is Shneur Zalman, the founder of the influentially powerful Chabad Lubavitch Jewish sect, with offices (yeshivas) established throughout the world. Rabbi Zalman in contrast to so-called “Gentiles” says, “All Jews (are) innately good, all gentiles innately evil…”
Talmudic Desecration of Christ
The Talmud neither expresses benevolence for Christ, Christians, or Mary. In fact it is most inflammatory and blasphemous.
Here is what the Talmud has to say about Christ:
Sanhedrin, 67a — Jesus referred to as the son of Pandira, a soldier.
Kallah, 1b. (18b) — Illegitimate and conceived during menstruation.
Sanhedrin, 67a — Hanged on the eve of Passover. Toldath Jeschu. Birth related in most shameful expressions.
Sanhedrin, 43a — On the eve of Passover they (the Jews) hanged Jesus.
Schabbath, 104b — Called a fool and no one pays attention to fools.
Sanhedrin, 107b. — Seduced, corrupted and destroyed Israel.
Zohar (III, 282) — Died like a beast and buried in animal’s dirt heap.
He and his disciples practiced sorcery and black magic, led Jews astray into idolatry, and were sponsored by foreign, gentile powers for the purpose of subverting Jewish worship (Sanhedrin 43a).
He was sexually immoral, worshipped statues of stone (a brick is mentioned), was cut off from the Jewish people for his wickedness, and refused to repent (Sanhedrin 107b; Sotah 47a).
He learned witchcraft in Egypt and, to perform miracles, used procedures that involved cutting his flesh, which is also explicitly banned in the Bible (Shabbos 104b).
Talmudic Defamation of Christians
Here is what the Talmud says about Christians:
Hilkhoth Maakhaloth — Christians are idolators, must not associate.
Iore Dea (153, 2). — Must not associate with Christians, shed blood.
Abhodah Zarah (25b). — Beware of Christians when walking abroad with them.
Orach Chaiim (20, 2). — Christians disguise themselves to kill Jews.
Abhodah Zarah (15b) — Suggest Christians commit bestiality.
Orach Chaiim 57, 6a — Christians to be pitied more than sick pigs.
Talmudic Defamation of Mary, the Mother of Christ
Here is what the Talmud says about Mary:
Sanhedrin 106a . Says Jesus’ mother was a whore: “She who was the descendant of princes and governors played the harlot with carpenters.” Also in footnote #2 to Shabbath 104b of the Soncino edition, it is stated that in the “uncensored” text of the Talmud it is written that Jesus mother, “Miriam the hairdresser,” had sex with many men.
Advocation of Genocide in the Talmud
Genocide is even advocated in the Talmud. This explains the function of what is going on in Palestine. I will quote verbatim from Michael Hoffman’s “The Truth About the Talmud: A Documented Expose of Supremacist Rabbinic Hate Literature”, which is available online:
Minor Tractates. Soferim 15, Rule 10. This is the saying of Rabbi Simon ben Yohai: Tob shebe goyyim harog (“Even the best of the gentiles should all be killed”).
This passage is from the original Hebrew of the Babylonian Talmud as quoted by the 1907 Jewish Encyclopedia, published by Funk and Wagnalls and compiled by Isidore Singer, under the entry, “Gentile,” (p. 617).
This original Talmud passage has been concealed in translation. The Jewish Encyclopedia states that, “…in the various versions the reading has been altered, ‘The best among the Egyptians’ being generally substituted.” In the Soncino version: “the best of the heathens” (Minor Tractates, Soferim 41a-b].
Israelis annually take part in a national pilgrimage to the grave of Simon ben Yohai, to honor this rabbi who advocated the extermination of non-Jews. (Jewish Press, June 9, 1989, p. 56B).
On Purim, Feb. 25, 1994, Israeli army officer Baruch Goldstein, an orthodox Jew from Brooklyn, massacred 40 Palestinian civilians, including children, while they knelt in prayer in a mosque. Goldstein was a disciple of the late Brooklyn Rabbi Meir Kahane, who told CBS News that his teaching that Arabs are “dogs” is derived “from the Talmud.”-my emphasis (CBS 60 Minutes, “Kahane”).
University of Jerusalem Prof. Ehud Sprinzak described Kahane and Goldstein’s philosophy: “They believe it’s God’s will that they commit violence against goyim, a Hebrew term for non-Jews.” (NY Daily News, Feb. 26, 1994, p. 5).
Rabbi Yitzhak Ginsburg declared, “We have to recognize that Jewish blood and the blood of a goy are not the same thing.” (NY Times, June 6, 1989, p.5).
Rabbi Yaacov Perrin said, “One million Arabs are not worth a Jewish fingernail.” -my emphasis(NY Daily News, Feb. 28, 1994, p.6). end quote.
The Talmud is The Source of The Hamitic Myth
The Babylonian Talmud, Sanhedrin 108b states: “Our Rabbis taught: Three copulated in the ark, and they were all punished — the dog, the raven, and Ham. The dog was doomed to be tied, the raven expectorates [his seed into his mate’s mouth], and Ham was smitten in his skin.” (my emphasis) This is a direct inference to black skin being a curse and a punishment for sin. The Zohar states that Ham’s son Canaan “darkened the faces of mankind”. This is rather ironic, when the ancients were already black to begin with, including the ancient Hebrews, from whom the Jews claim descent. The medieval Jewish commentators such as Rashi and Abraham ibn Ezra give sexually-perverted interpretations of the passage in Sanhedrin 108b. The Talmud promotes anti-Black racism and is sexually perverted in essence.
The Deceptive Foundation of the Talmud
The very foundation upon which the Talmud is built is deception. Its matrix of thought is circumvention. The Talmud advocates Jewish deception of the Gentiles in the nations among whom they live. To elaborate on the deception the sanction of obfuscation of facts, dissimulation, circumvention, etc. are paramount in Talmudic thought. There are even censored and uncensored versions of the Talmud to circumvent so-called Gentile research into the book. Even the superficial noteworthy passages in Talmud apply only to the Yid (Jew)upon their decipherments. The Talmud is enshrouded with decoy texts and escape clauses. It is a bureaucaretic legal document.
Here are some passages of Talmudic advocacy for Gentile deception:
Baba Kamma 113a. Jews may use lies (“subterfuges”) to circumvent a Gentile.
Baba Kamma 37b. The gentiles are outside the protection of the law and God has “exposed their money to Israel.” (Thus leaving us at the exploitation and lies of the so-called “Jews”.)
Sanhedrin 57a . A Jew need not pay a gentile (“Cuthean”) the wages owed him for work.
Baba Mezia 24a . If a Jew finds an object lost by a gentile (“heathen”) it does not have to be returned. (Affirmed also in Baba Kamma 113b). Sanhedrin 76a. God will not spare a Jew who “marries his daughter to an old man or takes a wife for his infant son or returns a lost article to a Cuthean…”
Jews may kill us too:
Sanhedrin 57a . When a Jew murders a gentile (“Cuthean”), there will be no death penalty. What a Jew steals from a gentile he may keep.
Baba Kamma 37b. The gentiles are outside the protection of the law and God has “exposed their money to Israel.”
Yebamoth 98a. All gentile children are animals. (essentially fit only for destruction)
Abodah Zarah 36b. Gentile girls are in a state of niddah (filth) from birth.
Christians Deceived by Jews
Perhaps, the most duped in their perception concerning Jews are Christians. It is an unspoken rule that you can’t even be a Christian if you reject the Chosen People myth. It is quite tragic that the Church, should be intoxicated by such a treacheous people. Let’s face it, based on what has been shared, Jews hate Christians. That is the bottom line! The Zionist Jews have also infiltrated the ranks of the Church with the toxic doctrine of “Christian Zionism.” The Church, Roman Catholic and Evangelical, is Zionist in nature. Evangelical pastors, specifically, may thunder against sin and the injustices of the world system but they remain strangely silent on the criminal hypocrisy and sophistry of the current State of Israel established by the Rothschild family in 1948. They give an unconditional allegiance to Israel because they have been beguiled by the “Chosen People Myth,” which is another gospel.
In addition to the Talmud, amongst the other books are the Kabbalah, which is Jewish mystiscism. Like the Talmud, it is a Judaic discipline and school of thought that delves into the occult. Other occultic literature within rabbinic Judaism is the Zohar, the most important work of the Kabbalah, which explores its theosophic theology, mythical cosmogony, and mystical psychology. Nesta H. Webster in her revelatory work Secret Societies and Subversive Movements makes an interesting observation of the Kabbalah (or “whispered tradition”): “For by this date no less than three Cabalas appear to have existed: firstly, the ancient secret tradition of the patriarchs handed down from the Egyptians through the Greeks and Romans, and possibly through the Roman Collegia to the Craft Masons of Britain; secondly, the Jewish version of this tradition, the first Cabala of the Jews, in no way incompatible with Christianity, descending from Moses, David and Solomon to the Essenes and the more enlightened Jews; and thirdly, the perverted Cabala, mingled by the Rabbis with magic, barbaric superstitions, and—after the death of Christ—with anti-Christian legends.” (emphasis added)
The Secret Revelation of the Tanya
And something that surpasses them all is the Tanya. Wikipedia says this about the Tanya:
“The Tanya is the known as the “written Torah” of Chabad Chasidus. It is written by the founder of Chabad Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi and consists of five sections. The first section, known as Likutei Amarim (collected sayings) deals with man and his internal struggles, and relationship with G-d. The second section, Shaar Hayichud Vehaemuna (The portal of unity and faith), deals with creation, and the unity of G-D. The third section is known as Iggeres Hateshuva (The epistle of Teshuva). The fourth section known as Igeres Hakodesh is a collection of letters penned by the author throughout his lifetime. The final section known as Kuntres Acharon consists of essays on various topics.”
The innate philosophy of the Tanya is “no rules.” The realm of good and evil is eradicated in Tanaitic thought. The realm in which the sect Chabad Lubavitch move in is the realm of Luciferianism. The Chabad Lubavitch are reported to be the spiritual arm of the Zionist global apparatus.
Do you still think that the Jews are the Chosen People? And let it be clarified that the Jew is the product of the Talmud, from the age of 10 until death, he undertakes this indoctrinal study of false Judaic supremacy over the goyim, a Hebrew word for cattle, which is used perjoratively for the so-called “Gentiles” of the earth. All non-Jews are considered “Gentiles” by the Judaics, who are actually medieval converts (ca. 740 A.D.)and not the ancient Hebrews whose religion was Yahvism, literally, the worship of Yah.
