Will someone tell me what exactly a "Jew" is

#1SCAMaz0nPosted 11/23/2012 8:31:26 PM
because I've heard many things from people, I had someone close in my family that exemplified a certain kind of Jewish teaching, I know some things and I also see many things on this site (a certain King Jew comes to mind), but I want Your opinions.
yes, I want to hear what You think a Jew is.

Law of Moses was fulfilled by Christ.
They skip Isiah 53 in their weekly readings which prophesies Messiah. Why would you skip that.
Also I do not know how much importance they assigns to psalms of David, but they prophecy Messiah as well.
Oh well, there are Hebrew Catholics, rest will say this during second coming: Blessed is the One who Comes in the name of the Lord, Hosanna in the highest.

A Jew is either someone of Israeli decent or someone who follows the Jewish religion.

I know someone who's grandfather is German Jewish and grandmother is Czechoslovakian (not sure if Czech Republic or Slovakia) Jewish. What does that make the child? What if the child is not able to follow Judaism?

Does the Child have a Jewish mother? Then he's Jewish automatically. I think the early Zionists weren't religious at all.

At first Jew was an ethnic designation. 1st, descendant of Judah (Jacob's 4th son); 2nd, of the Southern Kingdom of Judah (after the split); 3rd, all Israelites (after exile). The term Judaism doesn't even show up until Hellenistic times (to distinguish it from Hellenism). Converts from the nations were known by terms that roughly meant "Sojourner, Foreigner, Alien", then likely sometime after the Romans destroyed Jerusalem they came to be known as Jews too.

Moses, Jesus, Marx, Freud, Mahler, and Einstein. All Jews.

Jewishness is kind of odd in that it doesn't easily fit into any of the usual categories. Basically the way it goes is that a person inherits it from their mother or becomes one from a conversion carried out in accordance with Jewish Law (this pretty much rules out Reform or Conservative conversions). So I guess calling it an ethnoreligious group would be somewhat accurate, but...I don't know. It's kind of unique.

If their mother is Jewish then yes, this person is also a Jew. It doesn't matter what their father's side of the family is.

What do you mean "not able to follow Judaism"?

Depends what kind of Jew you mean...being a Jew could mean that you're of Jewish heritage (in the same way you of, say, Irish heritage), or it could mean you follow the Jewish faith.It's both cultural and religious, depending on your context.

oh i forgot that topic.

mercuryink's replies at the end are quite comical.
you know, I was thinking of replacing my copy of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. David Duke might send me a copy if I ask him nicely. Since I have his cell phone #, perhaps I'll give him a call on Monday.
He's not that big into email conversations, IIRC.

LMFAO.
