Sabbath Day Bible Study – Another Jesus

Another Jesus: the other Jesus we’ve been taught to love

 

Welcome to the BibleStudyMinistry.com, today we are going to study a topic that is rarely explored in mainstream Christianity. There are many scriptures that go untouched, that is unread or read with limited understanding. The scripture we are going to explore today is one of them. In that Paul speaks to us about another Jesus, this is a warning we should all look into deeply. How are we to know if we happen to be studying another Jesus? The only way is to read the scriptures with understanding.

Again, the title of this study is Another Jesus: the other Jesus we’ve been taught to love.

We’ll start in 2nd Corinthians 11 (v4)

4For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

In this short study, we are not going to study what the Jesus of the Bible taught compared to what the mainstream Jesus teaches. Instead we are going to follow the family lineage of Jesus in the flesh to point out Jesus the Messiah.

 

We want to identify Him, because Paul said if someone comes along teaching about another Jesus we have to bear with them (that is to challenge them). Well along the way, we’ve had plenty of people preach another Jesus, we are not going to confront them, we are going to confront their message.

 

For years Jesus has been depicted as a white Caucasian male, with European decent from Rome or Italy at large. This is because the Romans were in power and I’m sure people in power would adopt something that is growing so popularly. Also when people sway towards something, the ruling power can lose their power if they do not adapt, join, or take over. This was done by Rome. Nevertheless, we are going to see where Jesus was born.

Micah 5 v 2
The book of Micah tells us where Jesus would be born; in Bethlehem in the land of Judah.

“But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, [though] thou be little among the thousands of Judah, [yet] out of thee shall he come forth unto me [that is] to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth [have been] from of old, from everlasting.”

We can confirm this in the Testimony of Matthew in chapter two.

Matthew 2

1Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
2Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

When Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea as the prophets wrote, the wise men of that day knew the prophecy and came up to see the King of the Jews  to worship Him.

Today people have short-circuits in the brain regarding Jesus because some scriptures say He was from Nazareth and others mention Galilee.  In St. John chapter 1 verse 46 Nathaniel asked Philip if anything good can come out of Nazareth. This was in response to Philip telling him they have found the Messiah prophesied by Moses.  Jesus did not grow up in the best of neighborhoods. He probably had a few guys walking around in hoodies. I only imagine it was a poor area.

The people in Jesus day were split on believing He was the Christ and the Pharisees probably held a solid point.  He grew up in a city called Nazareth, in the region called Galilee.  If the people during that day did not talk to Jesus or His people to get background on His upbringing; and we in this generation do not read carefully, we can make the mistake to discount Him as the Messiah or Christ. The reason is because the scriptures prophesied the Messiah coming from Bethlehem.

 

In St. John chapter 7 verses 52, the Pharisees argued that Jesus was not the Messiah based on the fact that the scriptures never said anything about the Messiah come from Galilee (as they believed).

52They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.

 53And every man went unto his own house.

Jesus never argued that point nor mentioned it because His works showed who He was. However, why did Jesus not grow up in Bethlehem? The reason why was because of King Herod. Herod was attempting to kill Jesus based on the threat to his throne, Herod ordered the mass killing of all male babies two years and under.

Joseph, the paternal parent of Jesus fled to Egypt and waited there until Herod and his administration were dead and gone. This is when the Father had His Son come out of Egypt. Instead of Joseph going back to Bethlehem, he went to Nazareth for fear of any minor commotion from the successor of Herod.  In a game of chess, we have to say, excellent move by the Father.

This is in Matthew 2:

19But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt,


20Saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and go into the land of Israel: for they are dead which sought the young child’s life.


21And he arose, and took the young child and his mother, and came into the land of Israel.


22But when he heard that Archelaus did reign in Judaea in the room of his father Herod, he was afraid to go thither: notwithstanding, being warned of God in a dream, he turned aside into the parts of Galilee:


23And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene.

Believe it or not, this was prophesied to happen like everything else concerning Jesus.  The Lord had to call His life and the world so we can read it and believe that He is the One, sent from God on High. This is the ultimate test of faith, to believe what is written in the scriptures because Jesus said He comes in the volume of the book; it was written about Him.

 

We now know why He is Jesus of Nazareth, and why He came from Galilee, to avoid Herod.  However, He was truly from Bethlehem as prophesied in Micah chapter 5.

 

In regards to His lineage, we know Jesus was not born in France, England, United States, Amsterdam, or Rome.  Just as Moses was NOT an Egyptian, Jesus was not a Roman. Let verify that He was not a Roman that happened to be born in Bethlehem. Things like that happen often when a man will be from South Africa but originally from the United Kingdom.
First, for Jesus to be from Rome or to be considered a European, He would have been a Gentile who are the sons of Japheth, according to Genesis 10 verses 5 (see the “who are the Gentiles” posting).

 

The ruling powers of Jesus day were the Gentiles and still are in our present day.  When we do the lineage of Jesus it should go back to Japheth, the father of the Gentiles.

Matthew 1
1The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.
2Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren;

We see this is Jesus, son of David, son of Abraham… then we begin with Abraham and his son Isaac, and Jacob (later became Israel) and so on.

15And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob;
16And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.

We went from Abraham all the way to Jesus Christ; now Jesus paternal father in the flesh was Joseph, who was a Jew of the seed of David. Abraham was Semitic, meaning a son of Shem as opposed to Japheth. This teaches us that Jesus according to the flesh was a Jew (as from the tribe of Judah from Israel).

 

Although we know this, I want to make it clear for newer Bible study readers to understand by going all the way to Noah and which of his three sons (Shem, Ham, or Japheth) did Jesus come through.  We’ll go to the book of Luke for this:

Luke 3
36Which was the son of Cainan, which was the son of Arphaxad, which was the son of Sem, which was the son of Noe, which was the son of Lamech,
37Which was the son of Mathusala, which was the son of Enoch, which was the son of Jared, which was the son of Maleleel, which was the son of Cainan,
38Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.

Jesus did not come through Japheth, this clearly shows that He was not of the Gentile family, neither was Joseph or Mary.  Jesus being from Rome is just not spiritually healthy teaching of the Bible.

People who claim Jesus was/is from Rome are teaching another Jesus! The European image of Jesus is another Jesus! The commandments instruct us not to make any images of things in heaven to represent the God of Israel (Exodus 20 v4).

 

Jesus was born on December twenty-fifth is another Jesus! The scripture just told how Herod had to kill every male baby from two years on down in Bethlehem just to satisfy his conscious of killing the future king of Israel. Herod would not have done this if he knew Jesus’ birthday. He would have went to the records, located the family, found they fled out of town and spared the life of all those poor children that were killed.

Jesus, who was born in Bethlehem in the flesh, has a long time desire to dwell on the earth (Psalm 132).

 13For the LORD hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation.

 14This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it.

The desire of the traditionally taught about Jesus takes people to heaven. It may be tradition or your belief but unfortunately that is another Jesus.  The traditionally taught Jesus says the dead are in Heaven (and can be caught often smiling down on loved ones).

 

Jesus from the lineage of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob says He will not lose one dead soul, but will raise them all up at the last day (St. John chapter six).

 44No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

Knowing that today is not the last day, and neither will tomorrow, we have to ask a critical question, a rhetorical question, a simply question; where are the dead?  If they will be raised then most likely they are where we normally put dead folks, in the ground.  The list of opposites continues and they are strikingly different, but those differences not found in the bible represent another Jesus.

 

Jesus came from a people who had darker skin. The skin tone of the children of Israel were compared to people who were called “black faced” people.  The Jews in the scripture have often been compared to Egyptians and Ethiopians. Jesus feet were described as one burnt in fire in Revelations.

It is up to you and I to become aware of the other Jesus. Satan is trying to slip everyone a counterfeit and those of us who do not light our lantern will fall prey to his deception.  It says he will fool the very elect if it were possible. Let us all pay attention, pray, and watch for another Jesus, who does not fit the bill of the Messiah we serve and are waiting for.  Praise the Most High God in the name of Jesus Christ, the author and finisher of our salvation.  Amen.
