The universal Messiah
The Old Covenant was made with the nation
of Israel alone whereas the New Covenant is for Christians of all races
The Jews looked forward to the time when God would send them a special
leader who would lead them to victory over their enemies and over the
empires of which they were part, however Jesus is not a local, but an
Jehovah intended Jesus to be the Messiah of Israel through force.
intended to make Jesus a victorious prince like David in his conquest of the
world (1 Samuel
2:10; Psalm 2:2-8), even
though this implied spilling the blood of millions of creatures.
To meet these requirements, Jesus figured
in Jehovah’s plans not as the Son, but as a prince
9:25) of a kingdom ruled by Jehovah. Within this
framework, the people of Israel would inherit the fruits of the earth, while
foreigners from all other peoples would be servants, taking care of their
material goods (Isaiah 61:5-6).
However, Jesus was not concerned with earthly glory and ended
up rejecting the anointing from Jehovah to be anointed and adopted by the
Father. This happened during the period in which Jesus had to choose good
and reject evil (Is.7:14-15).
Jesus decision to join with the Father provoked jealousy in Jehovah who,
angry at seeing his plans frustrated, became a hidden enemy of the Church,
bringing distortion and confusion through many translation and traditions,
thereby hiding his true identity through the centuries. In Is.45:15-17, it
is admitted that Jehovah hid himself.
Therefore, Jesus would have every chance of being the Messiah of Israel
according to Jehovah’s plans, which certainly did not include the tortuous
sacrificial death on the cross. His messianic nature would therefore be on
condition of the establishment of the law and commandments of Jehovah,
ruling his possessions with an iron sceptre (Psalms 2:9).
Jehovah's Testament was not impartial because preferred the Jews and
rejected all other nations and races. Besides,
racial prejudice is very typical in the Old Covenant (Deuteronomy 23:3) but
it is not admitted in the New Covenant (Ephesians
Thus, Jesus is not
the Messiah of Israel alone but of all peoples, since the Father’s wish is
to reach everybody and offer salvation to all (1Timothy
This is why
Jesus identified himself to the
woman as the true
4:25-26) but did not
restrict worship to the Samaritans on Mount Gerizim and to the Jews on Mount
Zion, but said that the true worshippers would worship the Father in spirit,
in any place on Earth where they came together (John
Through the gospel, the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members
together of one body and sharers together in the promise in Jesus Christ.
God's intent was that now, through the Church, the manifold wisdom of God
should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms
(Ephesians 3:6 to 10).
As for the woman
The women and those who had any birth defect were not allowed to take
part in the services of the temple (Leviticus 21:21; Deuteronomy 23:1).
If, in the
Koran, women are at a disadvantage in relation to men, it is also true that
in the Old Testament women are portrayed as inferior and even humiliated,
the value of a women being considered slightly more than half that of a man,
as we are given to understand in Leviticus 27: 2 to 7.
In Galatians 3:28 it is written that
there is neither Jew nor Greek, slave
nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. Circumcision
or uncircumcision is nothing. Keeping Jesus' commands is what counts (1
The sinful woman
of the Pharisees invited Jesus to have dinner with him. When a woman who
had lived a sinful life in that town learned that Jesus was eating at
the Pharisee's house, she brought an alabaster jar of perfume, and as
she stood at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears.
Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and pouered perfume on
them.When the Pharisee who had invited Jesus saw this, he said to
himself: 'If this man were a prophet, he would know who is touching him
and what kind of woman she is, that she is a sinner'.
Jesus answered him: 'Do you see this woman? I came into your house and
you did not give me water for my feet, but she wet my feet with her
tears and wiped them with her hair. You did not give me a kiss, but this
woman from the time I entered, has no stopped kissing my feet. You did
not put oil on my head, but she has poured perfume on my feet.
Therefore, I tell you , her many sins have been forgiven, for she loved
much. But he who has been forgiven little loves little'. Then Jesus said
to the woman: ' Your faith has saved you; go in peace'. (Luke 7:36 to
Love under racial prejudice?
Advocates of “love expressions” from Jehovah in the OT quote
Ezekiel 33:11...”Say to them: As I live, says the Lord Jehovah, I have no
delight in the death of the wicked, except in the turning of the wicked from
his way, and so to live. Turn, turn from your evil ways; for why will you
die, O house of Israel”.
the same book that Jehovah says that he has no delight in the death of the
wicked from the house of Israel, we read at chapter 25:7... "I will stretch
out my hand against you and give the plunder to the nations. I will cut of
you off from the nations and exterminate you from the countries. I will
destroy you, and you will know that I am the Lord".
and again at 25:14 against Edom...
"I will take vengeance on Edom by the hand of my people Israel, and they
will deal with Edom in accordance with my anger and my wrath; they will know
my vengeance, declares the sovereign Lord".
and again at 25:17 against Philistines...
"I will carry out great vengeance on them and punish them in my wrath. Then
they will know that I am the Lord, when I take vengeance on them".
conclusion is: Jehovah discriminates people according their races,
women, and people with birth deseases. But for the true God Father there
is no favouritisms.
Old Covenant was made with the nation of Israel alone whereas the New
Covenant is for christians of all races (John 3:16).
Jesus said to a samaritan woman: "A time is coming when you will worship
the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. Yet a time is
coming and has now come when the true worshippers will worship the
Father in spirit and truth" (John 4:21 to 25).
