A Treatise against Christians who Revere Zionism above Jesus Christ!


ONCE AND FOR ALL, JESUS CHRIST IS NOT A JEW, ALBEIT BORN IN THE REGION OF JUDEA, HE NEVER BELIEVED IN NOR PRACTICED ANY RELIGION CALLED JUDAISM, AS SCRIPTURE CLEARLY PROVES!

Athanasius' refutation of the Jews! 

Athanasius of Alexandria (A.D. 297 – 373), Bishop of Alexandria, was a chief theologian and early Church Father of the Christian faith. To this day he is widely respected within Western Christianity, Eastern Orthodoxy, and Roman Catholicism. As a staunch Trinitarian, Athanasius spent much of his life battling against the groundwork laid by his predecessor, Arius, a non-Trinitarian. In his writings Against the Heathen, Orations Against the Arians, and The Incarnation of the Word of God, Athanasius stresses the urgency of holding to the faith proclaimed by the apostolic teachings of Scripture. Historically he has been credited as being the first person to identify the same twenty-seven books of the New Testament that are familiar to Christians today.

At the Nicaean Council of A.D. 325, the young Athanasius made the following statement: “Jesus, who I know as my Redeemer, cannot be less than God.” This passion for exalting the Eternal Trinity forced him into exile five separate times by Roman Emperors. However, as providence would have it, Athanasius returned undis­turbed to his home in Alexandria to spend his final years writing and preaching, until his death at the age of seventy-six. 

The following is an excerpt from Chapter 6 of Athanasius' Commentary, where he deals with the conflict between what Jews believe about Jesus Christ, and his profound refutation of the dogma they use to deny His divinity.

“Again, does Scripture tell of anyone who was pierced in hands and feet or hung upon a tree at all, and by means of a cross perfected his sacrifice for the salvation of all? It was not Abraham, for he died in his bed, as did also Isaac and Jacob. Moses and Aaron died in the mountain, and David ended his days in his house, without anybody having plotted against him. Certainly he had been sought by Saul, but he was preserved unharmed. Again Isaiah was sawn asunder, but he was not hung on a tree. Jeremiah was shamefully used, but he did not die under condemnation. Ezekiel suffered, but he did so, not on behalf of the people, but only to signify to them what was going to happen. 

Moreover, all these even when they suffered were but men, like other men; but He Whom the Scriptures declare to suffer on behalf of all is called not merely man but Life of all, although in point of fact He did share our human nature. “You shall see your Life hanging before your eyes,” they say, and “Who shall declare of what lineage He comes?” With all the saints we can trace their descent from the beginning, and see exactly how each came to be; but the Divine Word maintains that we cannot declare the lineage of Him Who is the Life. Who is it, then, of Whom Holy Writ thus speaks? Who is there so great that even the prophets foretell of Him such mighty things? 

There is indeed no one in the Scriptures at all, save the common Savior of all, the Word of God, our Lord Jesus Christ. He it is that proceeded from a virgin, and appeared as man on earth, He it is whose earthly lineage cannot be declared, because He alone derives His body from no human father, but from a virgin alone. We can trace the paternal descent of David and Moses and of all the patriarchs. But with the Savior we cannot do so, for it was He Himself Who caused the star to announce His bodily birth, and it was fitting that the Word, when He came down from heaven, should have His sign in heaven too, and fitting that the King of creation on His coming forth should be visibly recognized by all the world. 

He was actually born in Judea, yet men from Persia came to worship Him. He it is Who won victory from His demon foes and trophies from the idolaters even before His bodily appearing—namely, all the heathen who from every region have abjured the tradition of their fathers and the false worship of idols and are now placing their hope in Christ and transferring their allegiance to Him. 

The thing is happening before our very eyes, here in Egypt; and thereby another prophecy is fulfilled, for at no other time have the Egyptians ceased from their false worship save when the Lord of all, riding as on a cloud, came down here in the body and brought the error of idols to nothing and won over everybody to Himself and through Himself to the Father. He it is who was crucified with the sun and moon as witnesses; and by His death salvation has come to all men, and all creation has been redeemed. 

He is the Life of all, and He it is who like a sheep gave up His own body to death, His life for ours and our salvation.”

The above approbation from a revered and accomplished theologian such as Athanasius is only one testament from among thousands of scholars (many who gave up their lives in testimony of this profound truth) who are among a mere throng of witnesses to this fact.

Man self-proclaimed Christians abound that testify against this reality which is proven by their faith in a people who hang the banner of Judaism around their necks based on a distortion of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Old Testament scripture spoken to all mankind by the Father of Creation.

No individual person, who professes to being a disciple of Jesus Christ, can adopt any other belief in the person of Jesus Christ that will deny Him the glory that can belong solely to the Father of faith!"
