The Synagogue of Satan

Part Three

In Six Parts

The Holy Book of the Synagogue of Satan

The Talmud is the oral traditions of the ancient Pharisees, in written form.

“The major repositories of the Oral Torah are the Mishnah, compiled between 200–220 CE by Rabbi Yehudah haNasi, and the Gemara, a series of running commentaries and debates concerning the Mishnah, which together are the Talmud, the preeminent text of Rabbinic Judaism. In fact, two "versions" of the Talmud exist: one produced in Jerusalem c. 300–350 CE (the Jerusalem Talmud), and second, more extensive Talmud compiled in Babylonia and published c. 450–500 CE (the Babylonian Talmud)." []

In the gospels, this oral rabbinic transmission is referred to as the “tradition of the elders.” [Matt. 15:2-3] This tradition is claimed by the rabbis to have been handed down by God to Moses in oral form. It was considered the Oral Torah, operating along side the Written Torah. This is why the Talmud is also referred to as Torah. Do not think when a rabbi refers to the Torah, they are talking about the written law. They are likely referring to the Talmud. Unless they specifically say Tanakh, they are referring to the Talmud as the Torah.

Jesus said that this oral tradition made the Word of God, the written Torah, of “none effect” (Mark 7:13). How can God give two sets of law (torah), which nullify each other? He wouldn’t and didn’t. The truth is, the Jews brought this oral tradition with them when they came out of Babylonian captivity. This tradition is grounded in Babylonian folklore, superstition and occultism. It is a tradition based upon pagan Babylonian practice. Rabbinic Judaism is a Babylonian religion. When you see a synagogue, you are looking at a Babylonian institution.

“Talmudic texts can be minefields of deception and pits of derangement and bogus reasoning, as befits those who would replace the Bible with their own authority. Most of the laws of the religion of Judaism have no Biblical warrant; they contradict and nullify the word of God.”
“Everything about Judaism is either a distortion or a falsification of the Old Testament because Judaism is based on a man-made tradition that voids the Old Testament by means of a series of dispensations and loopholes.”
“With the rejection of their Messiah and the commitment of the formerly oral traditions to writing, these Israelites completely abandoned themselves to a perversion which had once been only a persistent underground stream polluting Israel, but after Christ's crucifixion, emerged as the main ideology of those who refused to accept Jesus as their savior.” [Michael Hoffman, Strange gods of Judaism, p.9]

From the descriptions above, it seems that Judaism is based upon what was spoken by the serpent in the garden, “Yea, hath God said?”

Many assume that modern Rabbinic Judaism’s holy book is the Old Testament. This is a "fallacious impression".

“This is not an uncommon impression and one finds it sometimes among Jews as well as Christians - that Judaism is the religion of the Hebrew Bible. It is, of course, a fallacious impression. Judaism is not the religion of the Bible.”
[Rabbi Ben Zion Bokser, Judaism and the Christian Predicament, New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1967, p.59, 159]

It has been the gem of Judaic brainwashing of Christians, to say that Judaism believes in the OT and worships the Father, while Christians believe in the NT and Jesus as the Messiah. Christians have been taught to be good little parrots, repeating the mantra that the only real difference between Judaism and Christianity is that Judaism worships the Father, they just don’t believe in Jesus the Son. Do you know how BIG OF A LIE this is?

Herman Wouk, said of the Jews’ most holy book,

The Talmud recaptures a long golden age of intelligence and insight, it is to this day the circulating heart's blood of the Jewish religion. Whatever laws, customs or ceremonies we observe-whether we are orthodox, Conservative, Reform or merely spasmodic sentimentalists-we follow the Talmud. It is our common Law.
[Wouk Herman, "This is My God", Dell Publishing, New York. 1959, p. 162.]

The Talmud is considered the common law among Jews of all flavors. If you practise any form of Judaism, the Talmud is your holy book, according to Mr. Wouk.

Britain’s Jewish Chronicle of March 26, 1993 states that in religious school (yeshiva), students are “devoted to the Talmud to the exclusion of everything else.” [Hoffman. Judaism Discovered, p. 4195, Kindle ed.]

The "exclusion of everything else" includes the Bible. The only Bible text they might get is if it is referenced in their Talmud.

Rabbi Finklestein writes,

The Talmud derives its authority from the position held by the ancient academies. (i.e., Pharisee) The teachers of those academies, both of Babylonia and of Palestine were considered the rightful successors of the older Sanhedrin . . . At the present time, the Jewish people have no living central authority comparable in status to the ancient Sanhedrins or the later academies. Therefore, any decision regarding the Jewish religion must be based on the Talmud as the final resumé of the teaching of those authorities when they existed.
[The Jews — Their History, Culture, and Religion , Vol. 4, p. 1332, Jewish Publication Society of America, 1949].

The Jews worship the Father, they just don’t believe in Jesus

Any person who has even a modicum of familiarity with the New Testament, knows that it is an absolute lie to say that "the Jews worship the Father, they just don't believe in the Son."

John 8:17-19
17 It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.
18 I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.
19 Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.

If they knew the Father, then they should have known and recognized the Son. But, “ye neither know me, nor my Father.”

1 John 2:22-23
22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.

Those who deny the Father and the Son is Antichrist. If it is believed that the Jews believe in the Father, but not the Son, then by Biblical definition, they are Antichrist. They were antichrist in the days of John, as they continue to be presently.

John 3:35-36
35 The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.
36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

If one believes not the Son, he shall not see/experience Life and the wrath of God remains upon him. I didn't say it, He did.

John 5:21-23
21 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.
22 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
23 That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.

If you honor not the Son, you do not honor the Father. "I and my Father are one." [Jn. 10:30]

John 6:45
45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.

Everyone who has learned from and heard the Father, comes to the Son. If they worship the Father, why have they not come to the Son?

John 8:42, 54-55
42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
54 Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:
55 Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.

John 10:30
30 I and my Father are one.

John 14:6
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

John 15:23
23 He that hateth me hateth my Father also.

It should be evident from the weight of these few Scriptural witnesses, that there is no such thing as loving and worshipping God as Father without loving and worshipping His Son, Jesus Christ. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE! So if the Pharisaic Rabbinic Jews do not worship the Father, who do they worship? Remember, we are examining the Synagogue of Satan. This should give you a very strong clue.

What "God" does the Talmud Reveal?

When Judaism needs to find an answer, it has no where else to go but to the Talmud. They never considered the Holy Bible as a source for their answers. So much for the erroneous idea of them being "people of the book." Unless that book is the Talmud.

Rabbi Laura Geller of the Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills, said this,

“Jews don’t read the Bible literally. We read it through the lens of generations of interpretations and acknowledge the evolution of human understanding of God. The Talmudic image of God is vastly different from the image of God presented in the Bible.” []

Notice the phrase, “the lens of generations of interpretations.” This is a reference to the Talmud. Today’s Jews only read or interpret the Bible through the lens of the Talmud. Hence, their understanding and knowledge is formed and dominated by the Talmud.

Rabbi Geller admits the god of Pharisaic Judaism, i.e., the Talmud, is “vastly different” from the God of the Bible. How vastly different is the image of God in the Talmud from the God presented in the Bible?

We will get a better picture in the Next Section.
