Rabid anti-missionary says: "Jesus either lied or he didn't know the Bible."

"JasonSpiritualBabies" (Jason Vincent) who spends much of his time bashing "Jesus and the New Testament has a video teaching wherein he quips:  "Jesus either lied or he didn't know the Bible."  And the he quotes Luke 24:46-47 as a supposed "gotcha" that nothing was written in the Tanach concerning Jesus....Well, nothing was written in the Tanach that suggested we have to brush our teeth, either...But YHWH was very clear in places like Isaiah 53 concerning His Messiah!

The problem is, even when you show the anti-missionaries the pertinent scriptures, they will always insist, “No, that’s NOT what that says….”   The things Jason asserts about “Jesus” are downright blasphemous!  We can promise Jason that “Jesus” knew Scripture a million times better than he (Jason)  ever will!  Anti-missionaries can espouse all the venom they wish, but that will NEVER change the fact that Y’shua IS our long-awaited Messiah!

Luke 24:44. And he said to them, These are the words that I spoke with you while I was with you, that it was necessary that all things that were written in the Torah of Moshe and in the prophets and in the Psalms[1] concerning me be fulfilled.  45. Then he opened their mind to understand the Scriptures.  46. And he said to them that, Thus it is written and thus it was right that the Mashiyach suffer and rise from the dead on the third day.

47. And that he preached repentance[2] for the forgiveness of sins[3] in his name in all nations.  And that the beginning would be from Urishlim.  48. And you are a witness of these things.  49. And I will send upon you the promise of my Father.  But you stay in Urishlim the city until you will be clothed with power from on high.

50. And he took them out up to Beth-Anya and raised his hands and blessed them.  51. And it happened that while he blessed them, he was separated from them and ascended into Heaven.  52. And they worshipped him and returned to Urishlim with great joy.  53. And at all times, they were in the temple[1] while praising and blessing Elohim.  Amen. (AENT)

[1]   Notice that Y’shua is referencing the Hebrew order of the Tanakh: Torah, Prophets, and Psalms/Writings.  Alexandrian or Hellenistic Jews had a different division of the books.  He opens their minds to these “Scriptures” that reveal and uphold Mashiyach.

[2]  Y’shua teaches Teshuva (repentance) which means to return to YHWH and observe His Torah. Repentance means much more than to “change your mind,” although this may be a good first step; however, it means to stop breaking Torah.  If you continue to break Torah, you haven’t “repented.

[3]  Forgiveness means there is a pardoning of punishment for sin when confessed, and a person must refrain from further transgression to maintain their forgiveness and atonement.  The blood of Mashiyach does not provide atonement for repeated willful sin against Torah. There are many examples in Tanakh and the Ketuvim Netzarim where consequences always followed the sin.  There is no class of people, race or religion that can offer exemption from punishment of willful sin.  All of Creation will ultimately be held accountable to YHWH by what we do with the life YHWH has given us.

Y’shua was known to visit the Temple daily.  In the early mornings he taught those who came to learn of the Kingdom of Elohim; see Luke 21:36-38.  He NEVER, EVER veered from His Father’s commands.  As a matter of fact, he even said he came NOT to abolish Torah or the Prophets but to FULFILL!  (See Matthew 5:17-20.)  And here’s more:

Luke 4: 43 "But he (Yeshua/Jesus) said, "I must preach the good news of the Kingdom of God to the other towns also, because that is why I was sent."

Luke 8: 1. And it happened after these things that Y'shua was going around in the cities and in the villages and was preaching and declaring the Kingdom of Elohim.

Acts 28: 23 "From morning till evening the Apostle Paul explained and declared the Kingdom of God and tried to convince people about Yeshua from the Law of Moses and from the Prophets."

Acts 24: 14. But this indeed I (Paul) acknowledge, that in that same doctrine of which they speak, I do serve the Elohim of my fathers, believing all the things written in Torah and in the prophets.

YHWH said HE would send a prophet who was to do everything He ordered him to do:

Deuteronomy 18: 15 "ADONAI will raise up for you a prophet like me from among yourselves, from your own kinsmen. You are to pay attention to him, 16 just as when you were assembled at Horev and requested ADONAI your God, 'Don't let me hear the voice of ADONAI my God any more, or let me see this great fire ever again; if I do, I will die!' 17 On that occasion ADONAI said to me, 'They are right in what they are saying. 18 I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their kinsmen. I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I order him.

Yeshua Himself said He came to do HIS FATHER's will; not His own!

John 6: 35. Y'shua said to them, I am the Bread of Life. Whoever comes to me will not hunger. And whoever believes in me will not ever thirst. 36. But I have said to you that you have seen me, and you do not believe. 37. All who my Father has given to me will come, and whoever comes not to me I will cast outside! 38. For I came down from heaven,[1] not to do my will, but to do the will of Him who sent me. 39. And this is His will, that of Him who sent me, that all that He has given to me I do not lose even one. 40. For this is the will of my Father, that all who see the Son and believe in Him, will have life that is eternal. And I will raise him up on the last day. (Aramaic English New Testament)

[1] As in the context of Miltha (the Word) or the "Manifestation" or the "Will of" YHWH coming down from heaven to do the Will of YHWH upon earth; his Spirit is of YHWH but his nephesh (soul) and body are human and temporal. This shows that Yeshua was NOT in charge; HIS FATHER WAS! 

But just try explaining that to an anti-missionary!
