Torah corruption confirmed by New Testament bible scholars !



And when you have crossed the Jordan, set up these stones on Mount Ebal, as I command you today, and coat them with plaster. (Deuteronomy 27:4 Masoretic text). 


                                                                     Compare to
  

And when you have crossed the Jordan, set up these stones on MOUNT GERIZIM, as I command you today, and coat them with plaster. (Deuteronomy 27:4 Samaritan text)

---------------

Now the above problematic passage has only one solution, which is correct and which is corrupted and thanks to the bible scholars we have a confirmation that the Torah has been tampered with! Let's read the commentary for this verse.








And therefore it shall be, when ye be gone over Jordan,.... Some time after they had passed that river: 

that ye shall set up these stones, which I command you this day, in Mount Ebal; a mountain near Shechem in Samaria, and was, as Benjamin of Tudela says (r), dry as stones and rocks itself, and perhaps had its name, as some think (s), from the root in the Arabic language which signifies to strip a tree of its leaves, and a derivative from it, white stones and a mountain in which such are found. Hither the stones commanded to be set up were to be brought, and fixed here; from whence it is not certain; it may be from some part of the mountain. Here the Samaritan version has Gerizim instead of Ebal, which is generally thought to be a wilful corruption of the Samaritans, in favour of their temple built at Gerizim: 

Adam Clarke Commentary 


Not only that, we can see another interesting account by Adam Clarke, a Christian commentator where he shows another intentional corruption made by the Jews against the Samaritans. He said in his commentary on Deu 27:4 –

“Set up these stones – in Mount Ebal – So the present Hebrew text , but the  Samaritan has Mount Gerizim. Dr. Kennicott has largely defended the reading of the Samaritan in his second dissertation on the present state of the Hebrew text , and Dr. Parry has defended the Hebrew against the Samaritan. Many still think Dr. Kennicott’s arguments unanswerable, and have no doubt that the Jews have here corrupted the text through their enmity to the Samaritans. “

Notice how blatantly the commentators are using the word CORRUPTION to inform the reader that tamering has taken place!!! This is sufficient evidence to prove the Torah has been corrupted even if it's one word it's still proof of distortion. And shows the Torah you have is not fully the word of God ! And there's many many more places We can show you where changes have been made!

So here again Adam Clarke didn’t just accuse the Jews for corrupting the manuscripts due to their hostility with Christians only, but also they did the same with Samaritans, and with Muslims when they changed the name of Abraham’s offered son to Isaac.

These may be just some examples of what I have seen from Christian writings, and for sure if we dug more through various books, we may find more issues showing other issues. Actually if we went through early and medieval Muslim writings, we may find many quotes from Jewish and Christian writings talking about Prophet Muhammad in a very explicit way which are not present in the Bible. But if the Jews are actually proven to behave  the way described above, then I tend to believe Muslim scholars, especially that this is against both Christian and Jewish beliefs.

Jewish corruption of the Old Testament

This section shall highlight some of the corruptions made by the Jews in the Old Testament and how early Christians accused the Jews of corruption.

Justin Martyr

The first example is Justin Martyr(an early church father who died at about 150 AD) says in his dialogue with Trypho, a Jew:

Chap. LXXII. — Passages Have Been Removed by the Jews from Esdras and Jeremiah.

And I said, “I shall do as you please. From the statements, then, which Esdras made in reference to the law of the passover, they have taken away the following: ‘And Esdras said to the people, This passover is our Saviour and our refuge. And if you have understood, and your heart has taken it in, that we shall humble Him on a standard, and….. thereafter hope in Him, then this place shall not be forsaken for ever, says the God of hosts. But if you will not believe Him, and will not listen to His declaration, you shall be a laughing-stock to the nations.’…… And again, from the sayings of the same Jeremiah these have been cut out: ‘The Lord God remembered His dead people of Israel who lay in the graves; and He descended to preach to them His own salvation.

So Justin Martyr here is explicitly accusing the Jews of corrupting the Old Testament by hiding some verses talking about salvation. But is it that easy that verses are removed from the Bible?
Jewish corruption of the Old Testament

John Chrysostom

Let’s see what John Chrysostom (church father who lived in the fourth century) says in his Homilies on Gospel Matthew when he came to the verse quoting the Old Testament” which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene.”:

And what manner of prophet said this? Be not curious, nor overbusy. For many of the prophetic writings have been lost; and this one may see from the history of the Chronicles. For being negligent, and continually falling into ungodliness, some they suffered to perish, others they themselves burnt up  and cut to pieces. The latter fact Jeremiah relates; the former, he who composed the fourth book of Kings, saying, that after a long time the book of Deuteronomy was hardly found, buried somewhere and lost. But if, when there was no barbarian there, they so betrayed their books, much 56 more when the barbarians had overrun them. For as to the fact, that the prophet had foretold it, the apostles themselves in many places call Him a Nazarene. ”

So simply John Chrysostom is not just accusing the Jews of being negligent who are not caring for their books, but also of destroying their own books. If these are accusations made by Christians, who are supposed to share the Jews their belief in the Old Testament, how could Muslims trust the Jews and consider that they were really honest and followed God’s commandment to keep Hi s books, not to add or remove or replace?

Adam Clarke

Not only that, we can see another interesting account by Adam Clarke, a Christian commentator where he shows another intentional corruption made by the Jews against the Samaritans. He said in his commentary on Deu 27:4 –

“Set up these stones – in Mount Ebal – So the present Hebrew text , but the  Samaritan has Mount Gerizim. Dr. Kennicott has largely defended the reading of the Samaritan in his second dissertation on the present state of the Hebrew text , and Dr. Parry has defended the Hebrew against the Samaritan. Many still think Dr. Kennicott’s arguments unanswerable, and have no doubt that the Jews have here corrupted the text through their enmity to the Samaritans. “

So here again Adam Clarke didn’t just accuse the Jews for corrupting the manuscripts due to their hostility with Christians only, but also they did the same with Samaritans, and with Muslims when they changed the name ofAbraham’s offered son to Isaac.

These may be just some examples of what I have seen from Christian writings, and for sure if we dug more through various books, we may find more issues showing other issues. Actually if we went through early and medieval Muslim writings, we may find many quotes from Jewish and Christian writings talking about Prophet Muhammad in a very explicit way which are not present in the Bible. But if the Jews are actually proven to behave  the way described above, then I tend to believe Muslim scholars, especially that this is against both Christian and Jewish beliefs

HIGH PRIEST LIES?




Christians often tell us that the jews did not corrupt the Torah, the Torah is pure and has always been preserved by the rabbis?

This is a very bold claim made by christians. We know from the Quran (Surah 5:44)  and Christian Scritures (Romans 3:2)  that the Torah was Entrusted to the Rabbis. But the question is did they do as they were given to look after the Torah?

If christians believe that the Rabbis protected the Torah by Preserving the very Book from any alterations or tamperings. Then one has to Challenge how Honest were High Priests and Rabbis? In order to dismantle this absurd claim made by christians we dont have to go that far The New Testament gives us the Answer!

---------------------

Now the story of jesus in the New Testament seems to tell us how evil and corrupt the jewish Rabbis, Scribes and Pharisees were. They were regulary condemned by jesus, he would often curse them and call them names (Matthew 12:29, Matthew 23:33)etc

Here's where the real problem starts. We are told in the book of Matthew that the High Priest asked the soldiers to LIE!


11 While the women were on their way, some of the guards went into the city and reported to the chief priests everything that had happened. 12 When the chief priests had met with the elders and devised a plan, they gave the soldiers a large sum of money, 13 telling them, “You are to say, ‘His disciples came during the night and stole him away while we were asleep.’ 14 If this report gets to the governor, we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble.” 15 So the soldiers took the money and did as they were instructed. And this story has been widely circulated among the Jews to this very day (Matthew 28:11-15)

-----------------------------

An interesting passage that needs serious attention. We read that after the women's had seen the alleged resurrection the guards found out of the empty tomb, they went to the chief priests to told them what had happened, and the the CHIEFE PRIEST DEVISED A PLAN AND PAID THE SOLDIERS MONEY?  AND HIS WAS WIDELY CIRCULATED AMONGST THE JEWS TOLL THIS DAY?

Let's analyse this Matthew is telling us that the CHIEF PRIEST TURNED TO DECEPTION  by making a plan and resulting to making the soldiers lie by bribing them, this is highly unlikely when their very  Torah said :

“You shall not steal; you shall not deal falsely; you shall not lie to one another.
(Levitcus 19:11)

A gift given in secret soothes anger, and a bribe concealed in the cloak pacifies great wrath. (Proverbs 21:14)

The above verses cannot be more emphasised to say that lying, dealing falsely and taking or giving bribe is a great Sin, then how could such Chiefs of priests commit such and act?

--------------------------

Conclusion


IF THE HIGH PRIEST CAN LIE, GIVE FALSE TESTIMONY HOW CAN YOU TRUST SUCH A HIGH FIGURE TO PROTECT THE TORAH? Thanks to Matthew he exposed the Jewish rabbis showing us how dishonest they were

ASK YOURSELF CAN DO YOU STILL BELIEVE  THE JEWISH RABBIS  PRESERVED THE TORAH?


For I know that after my death you are sure to become utterly corrupt and to turn from the way I have commanded you. In days to come, disaster will fall on you because you will do evil in the sight of the LORD and arouse his anger by what your hands have made (Deuteronomy 31:27-29)

How can you say we are wise and have the Torah of the Lord with us when it's been corrupted by the scribes (Jeremiah 8:8)


Serpant or Satan?

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the...
