The Gospel material (AD 70 to AD 125) was heavilly edited to soften the anti-Gentile sentiments in the earliest Christian traditions (pre Jerusalem
Destruction AD 70) to allow Gentiles into the Community which was devastated by the War against Rome, which the Jews lost.
Do you REALLY think that R. Yehoshua bar Yosef the Galilean even tolerated the goyim (gentiles, non Jews) during his ministry?
(Yes I am talking about the same Daviddic Pretender Rabbi that modern Christians seem to like to call "Jeeezzzuzzz" for some reason, the same
individual who was executed by crucifixion during the reign of the "Divine" Emperor Tiberius for armed sedition against Rome and for flagrant breach
of the No King But Caesar Law (Lex Maiestatis) his case not being helped much by his arming his disciples on the hill with swords before his arrest
(Luke chapter 22:18-25)?
Here are some pericopes from the Gospels themselves for you to chew on:
A Syro Phoenican gentile comes up to him, even admitting that he is the Son of David (i.e. a Daviddic descendant with aspirations to kingship), asking
for help with her bleeding daughter, and he snaps at her:
LADY, I HAVE COME TO SAVE ONLY THE LOST SHEEP OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL...AND ANYWAY, SINCE WHEN IS IT RIGHT TO TAKE THE BREAD OF THE CHILDREN OUT OF
THEIR MOUTHS AND THROW IT TO DOGS UNDERNEATH THE TABLE??
(read it for yourself, in English if that's all you have, but it's far jucier in the Greek, Matthew chapter 15)
or what about the story of the "Sending of the 70" in Luke (similar to the sending of the 12 in Mark) where he allegedly said to his followers:
PREACH YE THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM BUT GO NOT INTO ANY TOWN OF THE GOYIM, NEITHER ENTER INTO ANY OF THEIR HOUSES, BUT PREACH ONLY TO THE LOST SHEEP
OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL...
Preaching to Gentiles was not on his agenda, and even the original 12 disciples were commanded to "Preach ye the Gospel of the Kingdom to the Lost
Sheep SCATTERED AMONG THE GOYIM..." (i.e. they were sent out of Palestine eventually to preach the Kingdom to the JEWS of the DIASPORA "scattered
among the Gentiles" and not to the goyim themselves.
Most of the anti-Goyim rhetoric was cut out of the gospel material and books which retained anti-Gentile sentiment (like the Gospel of Phillip) were
not voted into the canon in the 4th and 5th centuries AD e.g.
(Gospel of Phillip: and Iesous said, "A Gentile can never really die, because no gentile has ever lived, being unworthy of the Life so that he might
If the man were alive today, he would certainly be regarded by most moderns as a "racist pig" , but one might imagine that all that Daviddic blood
coursing through his "Jewish" veins was probably the cause of some deep seated prejudice on his part. But that of course if no excuse for him.
If you want to catch a glimpse of some of the evident race prejudice that the 1st century Messianic movements in Palestine had for goyim (gentiles) in
general, try reading some of the contemporary literature with the Iesous" movement found in the Dead Sea Scrolls, e.g. anti-gentile sentiments in the
War Scroll which "Iesous" freely quotes verbatim ("These be the Days of Vengeance of our god..." etc. which phrase is found placed into the mouth
of "Iesous" in Luke's gospel).
Most of the race prejudice of the pre-Pauline Nazorean churches was softened or knifed out of the tradition after Israel was destroyed by Rome in AD
70 when the gospels were beginning to be written down in Greek, and the Goyim eventually took over the churches, especially the Pauline ones which
were far more goyim-friendly. But then again, Paul never met Iesous in the flesh, only in dreams and visions.
But the Daviddic Rabbi who lived and started the Return of the Davids movement 2,000 years ago was certainly not as universally tolerant as many
"Christian" 21st century followers wished him to be or shall we say, paint-him-as (and no, he wasn't blonde/blue eyed either, but that's another
