In Christ Jesus Jews and Gentiles Grafted together as one as God’s Children. Christ the True Vine Tree of Life Binds Jews and Gentiles as ONE by His Love Redemption Sacrifice. Tree of Life Christ Grafts Jews and all Gentiles juxtaposed in the NEW BLOOD COVENANT to FULFILL old Covenant. God Chose Jesus Our Perfect Example living and teaching Torah to blend Jews with the Nazarene Christian Believers. God’s Bible is Identical to Torah as Old Testament in Bible. Jews and Gentiles Serve Yahweh Elohim, HIS CHILDREN. Jesus’ Jewish disciples or apostles taught and spread Gospel to uttermost parts of world. Grafting is agricultural metaphor of described by Jesus True Vine of God believers are branches. In hermeneutic Grafting in Christ describes True Vine connects two trees nourished by same root Jesus Christ. Christ has Grafted two of God’s people Jews and Gentiles from diverse cultural backgrounds, contexts united in a new way in Christ. Created by YAHWEH God for HIS Worship and necessary to be grafted in with the Jews chosen as role modern to all nations.
Grafting retains all specific genetic DNA features of branches blended in hybrid tree sharing nutrients from same root. Grafting is not genetic modification to CLONE to retain favoured branches. Its grafting blending all diverse people in ALL Nations to LOVE, RELATE, LEARN to tolerate one another. UNDERSTAND God’s Unique Privilege in Christ Jesus to bring people to SERVE SOVEREIGN GOD IN CHRIST, ITS ALL ABOUT GOD FIRST, Each category of branch created by THE WISE PERFECT GOD HAS GOD’S TRAITS, God Qualities, God’s Physical Features Proved by Jesus Said ‘when you see Me you SEE FATHER GOD. Branches of True Vine Tree Jesus established. Torah Tree fully formed developed by God Yahweh mixed with Gentile Trees spliced Jewish Tree in Christ engrafted ALTOGETHER. Produces fruits uniquely different taste of each tree yields own. GRAFTING Jews and Gentiles Godly Message in Gospel or Torah comes From Yahweh each branch in context in manifests EXACT WORDS OF GOD. Avoid confusion hurting Error branch trying to CLONE. JESUS IS ONLY TREE branches grafted into, Pleasing to God. Grafting in Christ is appropriate to global Love of God to emphasise it’s all about SOVEREIGN GOD is the ONE TRUE LIVING GOD branch to submit to. Bible in Leviticus 26:4 says I will give you rain in due season and land yield her increase and trees of the field yields their own fruits. Each Grafted tree’s DUE SEASON yields fruits COUNTED WORTHY by God on Jesus instruction.
Torah and Bible Agrees in Christ there is no Gentile or Jew or the un/circumcised, barbarian Scythian, free, slave, Messiah is ALL. Colossians 3:11 says God LOVES Circumcised HEARTS to Obey HIM and Love all in Christ Jesus. So Understand TRUE Meaning of Grafting in Christ as a family of Believers in Yeshua Jesus STOP divisions, denominations or movements HURT GOD, JESUS, GRIEVE HOLY SPIRIT. Jesus A JEW SAVED ALL on earth. Each Christian believer relates together with Jews before conflict exists. Assembly of FIRST believers in Yeshua in Acts reveal UNITY ONE ACCORD WORSHIP OF GOD TOGETHER in a Jewish Temple prayed and shared things in common in Acts 1:14; 2:44. And continued daily in one accord in Temple, breaking bread from house to house, ate meat with gladness and singleness of heart in Acts 2:46.
Expressed faith entirely in keeping with Judaism so was not intention of Yeshua Messiah to start another religion. In the later Brit Chadashah or New Testament disagreement between Jewish believers and Gentiles Hellenistic Grecian widows started complaining unfair treatment in distribution of food compared to Jewish widows. Early dispute disrupted Unity in sheepfold as Jewish Believers felt Gentile believers must submit to full ritual proselyte conversion process to fully become Jewish. To take vow, keep Torah commandments, traditional laws more than 613 commandments of Torah too much. People are SAVED in Christ so don’t need to undergo circumcision. In a council meeting with apostles, elders, in Jerusalem Paul and Barnabas said God works with Gentiles without conversion rituals. Peter presents God’s position of outpouring out His Ruach HaKodesh on Gentiles, Jewish Believers not practising Jewish conversion ritual on converts.
James led meeting, stood up and shared the prophetic significance of Gentiles coming to faith in Yeshua, linking it to end-time restoration of Israel. Gentiles Called by His Name in Acts 15:16–18; Amos 9:11–14. The Law of God of Moses on Sabbath in synagogue of city, James’ letter sent to Gentile believers stated: “ABSTAIN from food sacrificed to idols, from blood, meat of strangled animals and sexual immorality in Acts 15:29. So Bible Torah commands not difficult to keep according in Deuteronomy 30:11–14; Romans 10:8. The early followers of Yeshua stated “extra,” traditional laws burden some for believer’s conversion process to Judaism faith is unnecessary for salvation. James said the Gentile believers do not have to learn laws of Moses of God in Acts 15:21 but grow in understanding and live holy lives.
Christ is Good SHEPHERD Bringing all to God’s Sheepfold so sheep belong to God. Gentiles and Jews UNITED ONE in Christ in God’s Sheepfold. Yeshua promised in John 10:16, “I have other sheep not of this sheep fold to bring they LISTEN to my VOICE so shall be ONE flock with ONE SHEPHERD.” The Lamb of God Yeshua Christ Sacrificed His Life as a Ransom for many. Jews and Gentile have EQUAL ACCESS to GOD’S HOLY OF HOLIES in BLOOD OF JESUS PASSOVER LAMB. Jews and the Gentile descendants of Abraham are part of Covenant Fulfilled in the NEW COVENANT FULFILLED IN MESSIAH. Sheep together in may not look exact clones as family looks different. Not right, appropriate to insist one fully acts like other before they get along as Family Members in GOD’S PEN.
In Romans 11:11–31, believers grafted ONE TREE IN CHRIST so a Jewish Tree nourished from the Same Root by LOVE for one another. People know Children of Yahweh by GOD’S LOVE in Christ. So Jews and Gentiles are grafted in TREE by LOVE OF GOD OF LOVE TREE’S SON JESUS JOINS ALL TOGETHER AS ONE IN CHRIST. Jewish Gentile olive branches pruned as Godly believers, Grafted into ONE TREE from each tree. Messiah does not marginalized Israel anywhere. Paul addressed arrogance of believers who looked down on Israel or not accept Yeshua as Messiah nationally. Paul said, “Branches broken off can be Grafted in does not EXCLUDE the other. Many Jews believed as first Disciples of Jesus wrote Bible used by Christians. Jewish Branch broken to merge Gentile Branch to form GOD’S Hybrid Tree. Breaking branches is God’s Favour TimeLine for Gentiles. It is unbelief provoking God to jealousy to graft them in. God Grafts all by faith in Christ until time of Gentiles ALL ISRAEL WILL BE SAVED IN JESUS NAME GRACE by FAVOUR of God Almighty. Reverence of God does not spare natural BRANCH denying Christ so will not spare grafted Branch in Romans 11:19–21 if salvation makes them boast against others.Paul warns of falling in unbelief if not fully Obeying God causes people to be cut off. Jewish peoples persistence in unbelief is tolerated God grafts in others can Save Israel in Christ the Messiah in Romans 11:23. Jews grafted IN CHRIST TREE with Gentile Trees grow, prosper by faith in Yeshua Messiah accepted by Jewish people. Paul’s analogy of an olive branch GRAFTED by God bind in Yeshua a life of UNITY. Both maintain identity created by Same God. The olive tree in Gethsemane Jerusalem a Perfect Symbol in Christ Grafts Jews and Gentiles. Early congregation Jews, Gentiles believers lived and prayed together, celebrated Jewish festivals holidays like Yeshua. Faith in Yeshua in Israel helps believer’s relationship with Jews joins celebration of resurrection of Yeshua. The Passover holiday celebration of Gentile Believers developed to Easter tradition in century 2nd AD. Gentile believers keep close to Jews, celebrate Yeshua Passover Lamb on first night of Passover, 14th Hebrew Nissan. Later believers in Asia Minor then emphasized resurrection, 1st day of week. Believers in Rome observe the resurrection Sunday turned celebration to Constatine’s Easter.Controversy arose as Quartodecimans Latin 14 Jewish practice fasting eve of Passover. Established by John’s disciples Polycarp bishop of Smyrna c. 69 – c. 155 of 7 churches of Asia of Melito of Sardis died c. 180. Churches in Asia at Passover fast celebration beginning sundown on 15 of Nissan adher to Jewish tradition Converts attend model Seder at Jewish Temple Center Israel Mevasseret Zion outside Jerusalem prepared for the first Passover in Israel. Yeshua’s followers met to break bread Sabbath Saturday evening in Acts 20. Paul talks into night in Troas to daylight, Sunday morning, before going on his way. The Gentile believers meet Sunday mornings Jewish believers attend synagogues, began to experience pressure, after destruction of Temple. ORIGINAL believers lived in Jerusalem practiced Judaism visit Temple on daily basis. Jewish Revolt in early 60s remind believer Yeshua’s warning: “While people say, ‘Peace and safety,’ destruction will come on them suddenly, as labour pains on a pregnant woman will not escape. So brothers and sisters not in darkness this day should surprise you like thief, 1 Thessalonians 5:3–4. Jews, believers escaped Jerusalem as early church father Eusebius wrote: crossed Jordan went to Pella Nabataean fortress in mountains. Escape onslaught of Roman general Titus who destroyed city and Temple incurred wrath of Jews as deserters. Believer Jewish Believers managed to leave Jerusalem to avoid its destruction by Roman forces. Pella became a major centre of worship.
Destruction of the Temple at Jerusalem, Nicolas Poussin destruction of Temple in AD 70 Jewish believers discouraged presence in synagogues. Contribute to the Gentile believers separating from Jewish brethren by Rome’s institution Fiscus Judaicus or Jewish Tax. Roman Empire imposed tax on Jews destroyed Jerusalem Temple in AD 70. Replace tax for Temple used for upkeep of Temple to Capitoline Jupiter, Rome. Those who abandon Judaism exempt from tax for Gentile believers sect of Judaism broke from Judaism. Divisions in 1st century Birkat HaMinim 19th blessing Amidah, request divine punishment curse of God against paroshim separated from their community. Called minim or heretics if Jewish believers in Yeshua and Essenes. Jewish believers not able to lead prayer without evoking a curse on themselves. Benediction caused the Jewish believers unwelcome in synagogue, worshipped separately. That cursing of Justin Martyr in 2nd century Dialogue with Tryphon; Origin in 3rd century AD or Epiphanius in 5th century AD said three times a day, ‘May God curse Nazarenes.’or Notzrim first Believers in Yeshua of 4th century sect of Nazarenes. Believers of Jewish in origin from fled Jerusalem kept Torah, Gentile followers of Yeshua in general.
Believers incorporate pagan rituals into Jewish practice in worship AD 325, First Council of Nicaea convened by Roman Emperor Constantine’s church doctrine. None of the 318 bishops attending were of Jewish ancestry main acts of Council separated celebration of Passover from Jewish Passover identified pagan name Easter from Babylonian fertility goddess Ishtar. Council established Sunday new Sabbath not biblical seventh Sabbath. Council of Antioch prohibited Christians celebration of Jewish Passover. Council of Laodicea prohibited celebrating the Biblical or Jewish Sabbath. Christians prohibited, under penalty of death, to marry Jews treated 2nd class citizens.Anti-Semitism was rampant 4th century church in Constantinople in following creed: I renounce all customs, rites, legalisms, unleavened breads and the sacrifices of lambs of Hebrews, all other feasts of Hebrews, sacrifices, prayers, aspersions, purifications, sanctification, propitiations fasts, new moons, Sabbaths, superstitions, hymns and chants and observances Synagogues, food and drink of Hebrews in one word I renounce everything Jewish, every law, rite and custom if afterwards I shall wish to deny return to Jewish superstition, or shall be found eating with Jews, feasting, or secretly conversing and condemning Christian religion condemning faith, let trembling of Gehazi cleave as legal punishments to I acknowledge myself liable. May I be anathema in world to come and my soul be set down with satan devils in Conflict of Church and Synagogue, J.Parks.God does not intend disassociation from Judaism. God Ties Together Jewish and non-Jewish believers is shared faith in Jewish Messiah common root, as Paul, said of Torah Jewish faith and beliefs. In Brit Chadashah New Testament Yeshua lived a Jew in His time, Observed Jewish festivals, holidays, kept commandments. sometimes called into question traditional laws teachings, as not eating without ritually washing hands in Luke 11:38. So Theology was not based on the Word of God but on human traditions. Yeshua never taught disciples to break commandmentsAuthorizing Jewish practices replaced, non-Jewish practices Catholic Church new inheritor promises God gave Abraham and seed precludes unity. Replacement theology Christian Church replaced Israel so idea remains today. Bible says God’s LOVE for Jews in Christ Light to the nations in Isaiah 49:6 Nations will Stream to Israel come to Jerusalem to seek LORD Almighty to entreat in HIM, Zechariah 8:22. Ezekiel 34: 23-24 on restoration Jerusalem says I will place ONE SHEPHERD my servant David will tend them as their shepherd. I the LORD their God and my servant David the prince among them.” Israel RETURNED to Land so Kingdom of David RESTORED as God promised. Jews in their LAND KINGDOM and being FULLY RESTORED happening in FUTURE TOTAL UNITY in Israel of Gentile followers of Yeshua. Acts 2:29–36, Peter on relationship between David and Messiah said: “Brothers, I tell you David died, buried his tomb is here this day. As a prophet, knew God PROMISED him on OATH HE WILL place one of his descendants on his throne. Saw ahead resurrection of Messiah not abandoned in grave or did His body see decay. God Raised Yeshua to life, witnesses of that fact. Exalted to the RIGHT HAND of God, received from Father PROMISED Holy Spirit poured is seen and heard. David ascend to heaven said, ‘The LORD said to My Lord: “Sits at God’s RIGHT HAND until I make your enemies footstool for Your Feet.” All Israel be assured God made Yeshua Lord and Messiah.Jeremiah 23:5–6 makes connection: The days are coming,’ declares the LORD, I WILL RAISE FROM David RIGHTEOUS Branch KING Who Will Reign Wisely to do what is JUST or RIGHT in LAND. In His days Judah will be saved, Israel will live in safety. The Name He will be called: The Lord Our Righteousness. The Messiah pours Ruach HaKodesh Holy Spirit on His talmidim disciples a Sign of Coming fulfilling Ezekiel prophecy in Ezekiel 37:27. MY Dwelling Place WILL BE with them I WILL be their God and they will be MY people.” When Yeshua RETURNS to Reign rebuilt Temple in Jerusalem dramatic proof to nations God has not forsaken Israel. Nations will know I the LORD God Made Israel Holy My sanctuary among them forever in Ezekiel 37:28. Israel, Jewish, people are central to God’s plan for all nations. In the last days Israel and the Gentile Nations will LIVE in UNITY AGAIN as first followers of Yeshua. Days coming Israel recognizes support from Gentile believer’s right to exist a NATION. God’s prophetic PLAN is ALL of ISRAEL will be saved. Times unfold in a generation chosen to be part of it. Stand in unity with Israel, Jewish believers one, defy hatred division sown among believers in Yeshua. Living in Last Days Yeshua’s RETURN not far away diligently redeem time. “Teach us to number days to gain heart of wisdom in Psalm 90:12. “Come, let us go up to Zion, to LORD GOD. The LORD Says Sing with joy for Jacob, shout foremost for nations. Praises heard and say, ‘O LORD GOD, SAVE YOUR remnant of Israel in Jeremiah 31:6–7.
