Little About Me

Greetings, readers! I just realized today that you all have no idea who exactly I am. How rude of me not to introduce myself and my blog first so that you knew what you were getting yourself into...heh. =D

Anyway, let's get down to business. My name is Brandon. I'm currently 16 years old. My preferred religious beliefs are Jewish. I firmly believe that it is my job and the job of all my brethren, be they Christian, Messianic, or Jewish, is to bring the world back to Torah. The only way to do this is to live Torah.

Sound like a nice guy so far? Wait before making your judgments, because there is more. A friend once called me an "outspoken Judeo-Christian philosopher" due to the fact that I AM outspoken, I am Judeo-Christian, and I am a lover of philosophy. I say things that people find hard to swallow. For example, I do not believe the trinity. I believe that both Christians and Jews should follow Torah and bring the world to Torah. I believe that Christians and Jews are brothers, whether they like it or not.

That about sums it up, for now. The rest you shall find out in later posts.

Hello! I found your website. My name is Anders Branderud, I am 23 years and I am from Sweden.
By practising Torah non-selectively we make the world a better place to live in!

To realize that one can follow two polar-opposite masters — the authentic, historical, PRO-Torah 1st-century Ribi from Nazareth – the Messiah - and the 4th-century (post-135 C.E.), arch-antithesis ANTI-Torah apostasy developed by the Hellenists (namely the Sadducees and Roman pagans who conspired to kill Ribi YÓ™hoshua, displaced his original followers (the Netzarim) and redacted the NT); is a step in that direction!

So who then was the historical Jesus? His name was Ribi Yehoshua.
The research of world-recognized authorities (for example Barrie Wilson; www.barriewilson.com) in this area implies that Ribi Yehoshua was a Pharisee (a Torah-practising Jewish group - who according to 4Q MMT (a Scroll found in the Qumran-caves) practised both written and oral Torah (oral Torah in an unbroken chain since Mosheh (Moses); commanded by Mosheh in Torah; oral Torah is recorded Beit-Din (Jewish Court)-decisions of how Torah shall be applied).. As the earliest church historians, most eminent modern university historians, our web site (www.netzarim.co.il) and our Khavruta (Distance Learning) texts confirm, the original teachings of Ribi Yehoshua were not only accepted by most of the Pharisaic Jewish community, he had hoards of Jewish students.

For words that you don’t understand; se www.netzarim.co.il ; the link to Glossaries at the first page.

Ribi Yehoshua warned for false prophets who don’t produce good fruit = defined as don’t practise the commandments in Torah according to Halakhah (oral Torah; see the above definition). See Devarim (Deuteronomy) 13:1-6.

The research of Scholars in leading universities which implies that Ribi Yehoshua was a Pharisee necessarily implies that if you want to follow him you need to practise his Torah-teachings.
So you need to start follow the historical Ribi Yehoshua – the Messiah – by practising Torah (including oral Torah)!

Finding the historical Jew, who was a Pharisee Ribi and following him brings you into Torah, which gives you a rich and meaningful life here on earth and great rewards in life after death (“heaven”)!
