Eashoa (Jesus)’the Nazarene

Yochanan 14:6

Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach says to him, I am HaDerech, HaEmes, and HaChayyim. No one comes to HaAv except through me [1Sm 3:7].

The Netzarim designation clearly implies the ‘Tree of Life” which serves as a reminder of the Eternal Kingdom that was offered to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.  The term netzer (sprout or branch) is also the root word for the City of the Branch, Netzeret (Nazareth)…The designation of ‘Nasraya’ serves as a reminder for all his followers, not that he dwelled in Netzeret but that his ‘dwelling’ (the Spirit of Mashiyach) is within his people.”

(see Matt.2:23;  26:71Mark1:2410:47; 14:67Luke 4:34Romans 11:16).

Eashoa’ (Jesus) said that he did not come to abolish the Torah or Nevi’im (Matthew 5.18), and that both would endure as long as the physical universe is maintained (Matthew 5.18); Revelation 1.1; 21.8 says that those who violate the Torah are punished by suffering in the hereafter. The Gospel accounts report that this was not just lip-service, as Eashoa (Jesus) kept Shabbat (Luke 4.16) and the Jewish Holy Days like Sukkot (John 7.2; 7.10; 7.37) and even Chanukah (John 10.22). The most well-known Jewish festival he kept was Pesach. We read proofs of this in his instructions to “keep the Passover” (Matthew 26.18), which is the equivalent of “eat the Passover” (Mark 14.14), which we are told he did (Matthew 26.21; Mark 14.18).

Beyond the historical background of the Nazarenes, the first Jewish believers who founded the Jerusalem Church, the Messianic Seal itself proclaims to the world the pervasive Jewishness of Eashoa’, Melech HaMoshiach (Jesus Christ) and the decidedly Jewish foundation and roots of the church founded in His name.

Netzarim Believers do not emphasize theology or doctrine as the standard of “Faith”, but righteous character and the action of true Faith. Torah observance by Faith is action demonstrating the anointing of the Ruach HaKodesh (Set Apart Spirit). If one says they have Faith, but has NO love for Torah, their Faith is vanity. Ya‛aqob 1:22  And become doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.  Ya‛aqob 2:18 

Eashoa ’the Nazarene  In him was Chayyim (Life) and the Chayyim (Life) was the Ohr (Light) of Bnei Adam. Yochanan 1:4

Rabbi Yochanon said, “Wherever you find the greatness of the Holy One, blessed be He, you will also find his humility.” (b.Megillah 31a)
