The writers of Mark 15:13,14, Luke 23:21, and John 19:15, all say that the multitudes cried out, “Crucify him! Crucify him!” <— And the multitudes were spot on. They were RIGHT. In the case of the people vs. the son of God, their verdict was RIGHT AND JUSTIFIED. The lamb of God was WORTHY of absolute, death, and NOT for being a goodie-two-shoes. The lamb of God wiped his backside with Torah. The lamb of God urinated and took a heaping dump on Torah SO BADLY, that it almost makes you wonder whether or not he KNEW Torah, at all. Was the lamb of God a Torah observant Jew? Was he a Jew at all? DID he know what Torah says? Or was he a charlatan, pretending to be a Jew? The multitude was ABSOLUTELY SPOT ON, for condemning the lamb of God to die —> and NOT be raised from the dead on the third day. No. Just DIE. And STAY DEAD. Don’t raise up. Stay in your grave and may your rotting corpse be a lesson to ALL who dare disrespect the Deity of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Yes. The lamb of God committed an act worthy of death. So, what was the SINFUL, ABOMINABLE act he committed? Let’s find out…
The writers of Matthew 21:12 and Mark 11:15 tell the valiant, courageous, BOLD, heroic story of how the lamb of God drove the moneychangers out of the temple, declaring unto them, “It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves!!!” Matthew 21:13
Had the writers of Matthew 21:12 and Mark 11:15 knew what Torah actually says, they would’ve COMPLETELY left this incredible story out.
Okay. Let’s begin at the beginning.
The children of Israel were required to appear in Jerusalem 3 times a year: we had to be present for the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the Feast of Weeks and the Feast of Booths/Tabernacles.
“Three times thou shalt keep a feast unto me in the year. Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread: (thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the time appointed of the month Abib; for in it thou camest out from Egypt: [AND NONE SHALL APPEAR BEFORE ME EMPTY] And the feast of harvest, the firstfruits of thy labours, which thou hast sown in the field: and the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field. Three times in the year all thy males shall appear before the LORD God.” Exodus 23:14-17
We were NOT permitted to appear empty handed. We were required to bring a tithe. And our tithe WASN’T money, as taught in churches today. Our tithe was a tenth of our produce (wheat, barley, flour, grain, lambs, goats, doves, oxen, wine, olive oil, etc) to be given to the LEVITICAL PRIESTS in the temple upon our arrival.
“Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year. And thou shalt eat before the LORD thy God, in the place which he shall choose to place his name there [Jerusalem], the tithe of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear the LORD thy God always. [AND if the way be too long for thee, so that thou art not able to carry it; or IF THE PLACE [Jerusalem] BE TOO FAR FROM THEE], which the LORD thy God shall choose to set his name there [Jerusalem], when the LORD thy God hath blessed thee: [THEN SHALT THOU TURN IT INTO MONEY], and bind up the money in thine hand, and shalt go unto the place which the LORD thy God shall choose [Jerusalem]: And thou shalt bestow that money for whatsoever thy soul lusteth after, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatsoever thy soul desireth: and thou shalt eat there before the LORD thy God, and thou shalt rejoice, thou, and thine household, And the Levite that is within thy gates; thou shalt not forsake him; for he hath no part nor inheritance with thee.” Deuteronomy 14:22-27
The Most High said, “And if the way be too long for thee, so that thou art not able to carry it; or if the place be too far from thee…” that we could take the tithe to the LOCAL Levitical priest closest to us. We didn’t HAVE TO make the journey/pilgrimage to Jerusalem if it was too far for us to carry all that heavy stuff; we were to give it to the closest Levitical priest to us; and he’ll give us MONEY for it. Why? Because silver weighs a whole lot less that lambs, goats, oxen, etc. The whole point of exchanging your goods for money is “And if the way be too long for thee, so that thou art not able to carry it; or if the place be too far from thee…” <— A sack full of silver weighs a whole lot less than barrels of wine, bushels of wheat, and 1,000+ pound oxen. So take the MONETARY value of your tithe with you to Jerusalem instead. And remember your local Levitical priests don’t get inheritances like regular men. Levitical priests don’t own sheep, goats, doves, vineyards, cornfields, wheat fields, etc. Levitical priests STRICTLY WORK IN THE TEMPLE THEIR ENTIRE LIVES. So, they don’t have all the stuff we have. They don’t own farms and cattle and mango groves and apple orchards like we working men do. They ONLY work in the tabernacle/temple. So, if the journey for the three feasts is too far for you to carry a tenth of your increase (produce) take it to your local Levitical priest and give it to him and he’ll convert its worth into money, and bring the MONEY to Jerusalem instead. THREE TIMES A YEAR YOU ARE TO DO THIS.
Now read Deuteronomy 14:22-27 according to the NIV translation:
Be sure to set aside a tenth of all that your fields produce each year. Eat the tithe of your grain, new wine and olive oil, and the firstborn of your herds and flocks in the presence of the Lord your God at the place he will choose [Jerusalem] as a dwelling for his Name, so that you may learn to revere the Lord your God always. But if that place [Jerusalem] is too distant and you have been blessed by the Lord your God and cannot carry your tithe (because the place where the Lord will choose to put his Name is so far away), THEN EXCHANGE YOUR TITHE FOR SILVER [MONEYCHANGING], and take the silver with you and go to the place the Lord your God will choose [Jerusalem]. Use the silver to buy whatever you like: cattle, sheep, wine or other fermented drink (alcohol), OR ANYTHING YOU WISH. Then you and your household shall eat there in the presence of the Lord your God and rejoice. And do not neglect the Levites living in your towns, for they have no allotment or inheritance of their own.” Deuteronomy 14:22-27
Okay. So, the moneychangers in the temple were LEVITICAL PRIESTS. Yes. The lamb of God drove out the Levitical moneychangers who were ONLY DOING THEIR LEVITICAL, PRIESTLY JOB, ACCORDING TO TORAH. Think about that. The selling and buying of doves and goats and pigeons in the temple??? Those men were Levitical sons of AARON, carrying out their priestly DUTY to receive the tithe (produce) and exchange silver it.
“How old is that lamb? Two years old? Is it a male or female? Okay. A two year old male lamb is worth this much. How much wine have you brought? A barrel? One barrel of wine is worth that much. You have wheat also? How many bushels of wheat have you brought? Four? Okay. Four bushels of wheat is worth this much.”
☝️☝️☝️ Mary’s little baby drove out the Levitical priests who were ONLY DOING THEIR JOBS, according to Deuteronomy 14:22-27, and exchanging the tithes the children of Israel brought with them from far away lands, for silver. Exactly as Torah commanded them to. So YES. When the children of Israel saw this crazy, wild man, whipping and beating the Levitical priests out of the temple for SIMPLY OBEYING DEUTERONOMY 14:22-27, not to mention when they heard he was calling himself the “son of God” of course they demanded he be put to death??! Uh, duh????
What is the penalty for interferring with the duties of a Levitical priest? DEATH.
Interferring with a Levitical priest doing his job, is DEATH. You do NOT pass GO. You do NOT collect $200. You DIE. Period, end of discussion.
The man we cry over; the man we worship; the man we’ve written 25 million songs about; the man we fall out over; the man by whom we speak in tongues; the man we run around churches for and beat tambourines for; the man whose name we’re baptized in; the man in whose name we cast out demons; the man in whose name we lay hands on the sick’; the man we worship and adore; the man we’re afraid to deny; lest he deny us in the presence of his Father; the man we pray to; the man whose name we pray in; the man we call upon in life-threatening situations; the man we thank for EVERYTHING; the first begotten of the dead; the meek and humble lamb; the rose of Sharon; the bright and morning star; the son of David; the prince of peace; the wonderful counselor; the everlasting father; the firstborn of the resurrection; the man from Galiee; the balm in Gilead; the son of man; the sun of God; the seed of Abraham; AND the man we say is God in the flesh —> made a whip, and WHIPPED the sons of Aaron OUT OF THE TEMPLE, for doing what they had been doing for over a thousand years at this point. OVER A THOUSAND. Those men were Levitical priests and they were indeed changing tithes into money. Yes. Exactly as Deuteronomy 14:22-27 had commanded them to. Yes, they were moneychangers. But the writers of Matthew 21:12, and Mark 11:15 were so UNLEARNED and IGNORANT, that they didn’t know those men were SUPPOSED TO BE THERE. And THIS is how we know the new testament was written by ignorant, unlearned, GENTILES. The priests were SUPPOSED TO BE THERE, changing tithes (doves, pigeons, lambs, goats, wine, oil, grain, wool, etc) into money.
“Then shalt thou [TURN IT INTO MONEY], and bind up the money in thine hand, and shalt go unto the place which the LORD thy God shall choose…” Deuteronomy 14:25
Why didn’t “God with us” know this? Emmanuel was a Jewish rabbi, right? According to the author of Hebrews [Barnabas]: “Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; Called of God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec.” Hebrews 5:8-10
Okay? If Emmanuel is a bona fide PRIEST, how did he not know what was going on in the temple? So much so, that he WHIPPED them and falsely accused them of turning his Father’s house into a den of thieves! Huh? Wha? Wha? Whaaat???
We must ask ourselves, was the man from Galilee really who he said he was? Yes. The crowd demanded he be crucified. And rightly so. The man gave the people there, NO CHOICE. Did the man from Galilee commit suicide by Torah? Did he sign his own death warrant on purpose?
The man from Galilee and the town retard, John the baptist, were second cousins.
“Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.” Luke 1:34-36
Did the son of Mary and the son of Elisabeth come up with this elaborate hoax, to decieve the world into believing they were great men of renown? We know that John the baptist wore camel skin/hair, trying to mimick Elijah – so much so, that he tricked a lot of people into believing he was the reincarnation of Elijah. Did Emmanuel and John the baptist work together to validate each other’s ministry? Who’s to say. What we DO KNOW is this: the wages of interferring with a priest doing his job, is death (Numbers 1:51, Numbers 3:10, Numbers 3:38, Numbers 18:4, Numbers 18:7). And we know Israelites came from many miles around to bring their tithes to the temple and have them converted to money (Deuteronomy 14:22-27). And we know the son of David felt they were doing something wrong, so much so, that he whipped the LEVITICAL PRIESTS out of the temple and rebuked them. Then he stood before Pilot like some innocent dove, who has done nothing wrong. IGNORAMUS.
This is what happens when ignorant Gentiles write a New Testament and have NO KNOWLEDGE OF THE OLD TESTAMENT. (1) They have no idea they’re lying, (2) they have no idea how to conceal their lies or how to tie together the lies the CAN’T conceal.
He WASN’T sinless. You CANNOT say the meek and humble lamb whipping and driving the Levitical priests out of the temple, wasn’t a sin, unless your cognitive dissonance is on a million. Think about it. NONE OF MY FORMER PASTORS (LITERALLY NONE) HAVE EVER EXPLAINED WHY THE MONEYCHANGERS WERE EVEN THERE – ACCORDING TO SCRIPTURE. Has any of your pastors ever taken the time to explain exactly what the moneychangers were doing in the temple, ACCORDING TO SCRIPTURE? Probably NOT. Because telling you why they were there, would incriminate the man from Galilee.
And if you leave it to your pastor, the reasons WHY the moneychangers were in the temple in the first place, is IRRELEVANT. Why? Because the seed of David knew no sin and could do no wrong. Even though he flat out sinned and did wrong right in front of our faces. The penalty for interferring with a Levitical priest doing his job, is death.
Did the man from Galilee deserve to die? Answer that for yourself.
