Sar-Shalom’s Piece Process

In order for the Christian to know that his belief system is correct, he must also determine that the Jewish nation is bearing false witness. For if the Jewish nation is telling the truth, then even if Jesus performed all the miracles which the Christian scriptures claim for him, he would still be a fraud. If indeed God revealed himself at Sinai as an absolute unity, then anyone who advocates worship of a trinity is advocating idolatry. No miracle, no matter how spectacular, can serve as justification to worship an idol.“–Rabbi Yisroel C. Blumenthal (“You Are My Witnesses: The Traditional Jewish Response to Christian Missionaries”; published by the Bucks County Community Kollel; pp. 10-1)

[T]he Gospel records many instances where Jesus claimed to be G-d (John 10:30, 14:9, 16:15). If so, from the Jewish point of view, he was guilty of idolatry, one of the worst possible sins.“–Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan (“Jesus and the Bible” in “The Real Messiah: A Jewish Response to Missionaries”; published by Jews for Judaism, copyright by the National Conference of Synagogue Youth & the Orthodox Union; p. 35)

After posting my previous article exposing an erroneous translation of Isaiah 9, I learned of a relatively new online edition of The Great Isaiah Scroll, which allows users to zoom in to a much higher resolution than the other one I had linked to. Copyright credit goes to The Israel Museum, Jerusalem, powered by Google.

Since I keep my blog images to widths under 400 pixels (for consistent page formatting), I chopped up the word-pieces below from verse 5/6 (line 24, column 8 of the original scroll) while maintaining their original resolution.

Here’s the anti-Jesus Jewish arrangement (used by heretical rabbis over the years, who have hypocritically taught that Jesus of Nazareth was an idolatrous blasphemer, not the “One-With-the-Father” Messiah):

UQRA (7121) “and call”
PLA (6382) “wonderful”
YUO$ (3289) “adviser”
AL (410) “God”
GBUR (1368) “mighty”
ABY (1) “father”
OD (5703) “eternal”
SMU (8034) “his name”
SR (8269) “prince”
ESLUM (7965) “the peace”

And here’s the correct arrangement (used by honest scholars, Gentile Christians, Jewish Christians, the great prophet Isaiah, & everyone else who doesn’t worship a false god, blaspheme the one true God’s holy Name, & bear false witness against their neighbor’s Hebrew translation):

UQRA (7121) “and call”
SMU (8034) “his name”
PLA (6382) “wonderful”
YUO$ (3289) “adviser”
AL (410) “God”
GBUR (1368) “mighty”
ABY (1) “father”
OD (5703) “eternal”
SR (8269) “prince”
ESLUM (7965) “the peace”

And here’s 1 more quotation from “The Artscroll English Tanach: The Jewish Bible with Insights from Classic Rabbinic Thought” (appearing here without the publisher’s permission):

I know your rebelliousness and your stiff neck; behold! while I am still alive with you today, you have been rebels against HASHEM–and surely after my death.“–Moses, Deuteronomy 31:27

Surely.

G.M. Grena
