Jews don’t believe in hell even though it is taught in the Old Testament

Salvation
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xl6uzwp5X9Y Sometimes I run into people who say the Old Testament doesn't talk about hell; it was an invention of Jesus or an invention of the New Testament or an invention of the Catholic Church in order to control people. Is that true? That's what we're going to talk about in this video. What does the Old Testament have to say about hell? Does the Old Testament say anything about hell? I'm convinced that it does and for someone who reads the Bible carefully and examines what it has to say, I believe the idea of hell is very present in the Old Testament. And I'm going to show you that from some verses of Scripture I'm going to share with you today. But the first thing that we have…

Was Abraham considered righteous because of his goods deeds or his faith?

Salvation
https://youtu.be/Y9GnLQQ3JSY And now he's quoting genesis 15:6: Abraham believed God and it was counted to him as righteousness. God came to Abraham, who was a pagan demon-worshiping, idol-worshiper in the land of Er. He came to him though he didn't love God, didn't know God, didn't care about God but he worshiped false gods. He came to Abraham, called him out of that false pagan idolatry and said “I'm going to make you the father of a great nation.” Abraham's like “okay” so he gets out and he goes and follows the Lord and then later in Genesis chapter 15, he tells Abraham that he is going to bless him and Abraham says “How? I don't have an heir. I don't have anyone that has been born (literally says “from…

What is the significance of the Passover festival?

Salvation
https://youtu.be/z1XNDdnX-pQ Hey Matt. I'm the worst Christian ever and I want to talk a little bit about the Passover, which is a Jewish religious festival that has existed for over 3,000 years. Let that sink in for a minute. We have to understand that when Mary and Joseph and Jesus were going to Jerusalem when Jesus was a little boy to celebrate the Passover, this was a tradition that had already been established for 1200 or maybe 1400 years. There were all kinds of expectations and rituals and rites and pomp and excitement that would have gone with this thing but it traces its roots back to the time when the Israelites were slaves in Egypt. And if you remember the story back in Exodus, you got Moses and God…

Faith alone does not save, good deeds is necessary for salvation

Salvation
https://youtu.be/NiEXbHDH7mo Roughly 75% of the forever commandments given to Israel, these are for all generations. Roughly 75% of the Jews cannot keep without living in the land with sovereignty and a functioning temple and priesthood. Either God has left us unable to keep the vast majority of the forever commandments or he has given us a better way.  What's also fascinating is that in Deuteronomy, twice we're told don't add, don't take away. And the vast majority of what an orthodox Jew today does is not found in the written Torah at all. There are editions and some of the additions change the meaning of what's written. In fact there are some rabbinic traditions that take a verse in Torah and turn it upside down, cut it in half, turn…

Bible does not teach substitutionary death

Salvation
https://youtu.be/QOVx6iVtI9w What Judaism teaches Deuteronomy 24:16 Fathers shall not be put to death because of sons, nor shall sons be put to death because of fathers; each man shall be put to death for his own transgression. Ezekiel 18:20 The soul that sins, it shall die; a son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, and a father shall not bear the iniquity of the son; the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself. Transcript of the video You say here “You're missing the whole point though. We're Jews and we don't believe in human sacrifice.” Well of course we don't believe in human sacrifice. Christians don't believe in human sacrifice. The whole bible repudiates the idea of…
