Jewish Nobel Prize Winners: the numbers will astound you! (Wonder if the illustrious anti-Israel college students can measure up?)

YES, THE NUMBERS WILL CERTAINLY ASTOUND YOU - And it’s all because ADONAI kept His promise! As a matter of fact, He said:

Leviticus 26:9: "I will turn toward you, make you productive, increase your numbers and uphold my covenant with you." (CJB)

The above is a powerful statement when you consider how valuable and productive His "Chosen People" have been to this world! Please check out the article entitled Jewish Nobel Prize Winners which reveals that, while Jews currently make up only about 0.2% of the world's population and 2% of the US population, their contribution to the world has been nothing short of extraordinary:

“At least 214 Jews and people of half- or three-quarters-Jewish ancestry have been awarded the Nobel Prize,1 accounting for 22% of all individual recipients worldwide between 1901 and 2023, and constituting 36% of all US recipients2 during the same period.3  In the scientific research fields of Chemistry, Economics, Physics, and Physiology/Medicine, the corresponding world and US percentages are 26% and 38%, respectively. 

“Among women laureates in the four research fields, the Jewish percentages (world and US) are 29% and 41%, respectively.  Of organizations awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, 22% were founded or co-founded principally by Jews or by people of half-Jewish descent.  Since the turn of the century (i.e., from the year 2000 onward), Jews have been awarded 24% of all Nobel Prizes and 26% of those in the scientific research fields.”

Chemistry (36 prize winners, 19% of world total, 27% of US total)

Economics (38 prize winners, 41% of world total, 51% of US total)

Literature (16 prize winners, 13% of world total, 38% of US total)

Peace (9 prize winners, 8% of world total, 10% of US total)

Physics (56 prize winners, 25% of world total, 38% of US total)

Physiology or Medicine (59 prize winners, 26% of world total, 38% of US total)

(The above article on the jinfo.org website features clickable links that show the names of the actual Nobel Prize recipients.)

IN CLOSING, HERE IS ANOTHER FACT: Many of the key tools of navigators in Columbus' time were of Jewish manufacture, and included the "quadrant and the astrolabe". An article at Aish.com reveals that the type of quadrant in use at the time was called "Jacob's Staff which had been invented by Rabbi Levi ben Gershon", and also that "Jews had a virtual monopoly at map making then, culling information from Jewish merchants from all over the known world."

SO, FOR THOSE WHO HATE “THE JEWS,” I highly suggest you take a really GOOD LOOK at how YAHWEH feels about them!

Violence seems to be in vogue again…

IT’S AN ELECTION YEAR, AND ONCE AGAIN WE ARE BEGINNING TO SEE PROTESTS AND PROTESTERS RESORTING TO VIOLENCE. For many years now, there has been absolutely NO respect for laws or law enforcement anymore. People are becoming ever-more violent, and everyone seems to do “what is right in their eyes.” (See Judges 21:25, Proverbs 21:2.)

Many applaud violence and stupidity, yet either become more violent, or whine like babies when the police are called to intervene (and often they and the liberal media will blame the police if anyone ends up hurt or dead)…

Proverbs 6: 16 There are six things ADONAI hates, seven which he detests: 17 a haughty look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, 18 a heart that plots wicked schemes, feet swift in running to do evil, 19 a false witness who lies with every breath, and him who sows strife among brothers. (CJB)

I would like to know WHY people will gather in the streets and on college campuses to protest everything EXCEPT “bad behavior!”

They NEVER march to carry signs that suggest GOOD behavior … signs that say something like: “Crime doesn't pay; it’s your own fault if you end up hurt or killed while rioting!" or "Don't become a thug; make something decent of yourself!" or "Being a good, godly, upstanding citizen is more rewarding than punching a cop who has been called in to keep YOU from committing more violence!"…

Our country's values are absolutely upside-down today, and that is just plain sad! The Bible warned us that this would happen:

2 Timothy 3: Moreover, understand this: in the acharit-hayamim (latter days, end of days) will come trying times. 2 People will be self-loving, money-loving, proud, arrogant, insulting, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, uncontrolled, brutal, hateful of good, 4 traitorous, headstrong, swollen with conceit, loving pleasure rather than God, 5 as they retain the outer form of religion but deny its power. Stay away from these people! (CJB)

Romans 1:28 Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done. (CJB)

Most of the world is writhing in carnality. Consequently, things are only going to get worse...and then we will be "as in the days of Noah":

Matthew 24:37 For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.
Genesis 6:9 Here is the history of Noach. In his generation, Noach was a man righteous and wholehearted; Noach walked with God. 10 Noach fathered three sons, Shem, Ham and Yefet. 11 The earth was corrupt before God, the earth was filled with violence. 12 God saw the earth, and, yes, it was corrupt; for all living beings had corrupted their ways on the earth. 13 God said to Noach, "The end of all living beings has come before me, for because of them the earth is filled with violence. I will destroy them along with the earth
. (CJB)

Most are NOT traveling that narrow gate that leads to life – and their reward awaits them! 

Romans 1:28 Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done. (CJB)

Proverbs 21:4 Haughty looks, a proud heart -what the wicked plow is sin. (CJB)

Isaiah 50: But all of you who are lighting fires and arming yourselves with firebrands:
go, walk in the flame of your own fire, among the firebrands you lit! From my hands this [fate] awaits you: you will lie down in torment. (CJB)

Romans 1:28 Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done. (CJB)

Proverbs 21:4 Haughty looks, a proud heart -what the wicked plow is sin. (CJB)

Isaiah 50: But all of you who are lighting fires and arming yourselves with firebrands:
go, walk in the flame of your own fire, among the firebrands you lit! From my hands this [fate] awaits you: you will lie down in torment.

Let’s face it: Without the Holy Spirit within, we cannot find God or the shalom that only HE can bring. It seems most don’t want to follow rules - and they certainly not YHWH's Divine Instructions in Righteousness!  Everybody wants to do what's right in their own eyes.

FOR THOSE WHO ARE READING THIS, REMEMBER: The remnant that is truly seeking Him and being humble enough to listen to HIS Voice instead of following their own limited, human mindset, is VERY small. Which road will YOU follow?

Matthew 7:13 "Go in through the narrow gate; for the gate that leads to destruction is wide and the road broad, and many travel it; 14 but it is a narrow gate and a hard road that leads to life, and only a few find it. 15 "Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! 16 You will recognize them by their fruit.... (CJB)

John 4:23. But the hour is coming, and now is when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth, indeed.  For the Father, He seeks worshippers as these.  24. For Elohim is Spirit, and those who worship, they must worship Him in spirit and in truth. (AENT)

“The Jews” killed Jesus?


Reponse: Er … No!

While "the Jews" certainly initiated Yeshua's demise on that fateful day, WHO was it that tripped him, spat upon him, flogged him, ripped out his beard, put a crown of thorns upon his head and mocked him, and nailed him to the cross? Not to mention, there was a "mixed crowd" (not just Jews) cheering on his execution. (See Isaiah 50:6; Matthew 26:62-68; Matthew 27:30; and Luke 22:64.)

BUT LET’S JUST GET REAL AND SKIP TO THE BOTTOM LINE: We’re ALL to blame! Our SINS put Yeshua on that cross! Truth be told, if he hadn't been willing to martyr himself on our behalf, we would still be forced to kill innocent animals to atone for our sins.

Instead of sitting around, engaging in finger-pointing exercises, and espousing personal opinions, let's take a minute or two to allow the BIBLE to speak:

First, let’s take a look at a passage that helps to fan the flames of anti-Semitism (just like many of Paul’s writings, which are constantly taken out of context).

Thessalonians 2: 14 For, brothers, you came to be imitators of God’s congregations in Y’hudah that are united with the Messiah Yeshua — you suffered the same things from your countrymen as they did from the Judeans who 15 both killed the Lord Yeshua and the prophets, and chased us out too. They are displeasing God and opposing all mankind 16 by trying to keep us from speaking to the Gentiles, so that they may be delivered. Their object seems to be always to make their sins as bad as possible! But God’s fury will catch up with them in the end. (CJB)

Can you see why people would point their fingers at "the Jews?" 

The astute, however, will read "the rest of the story" in order to formulate an INFORMED opinion; and they will start by taking a look at the events that took place BEFORE Yeshua was crucified:

Matthew 26: 47 While Yeshua was still speaking, Y’hudah (one of the Twelve!) came, and with him a large crowd carrying swords and clubs, from the head cohanim and elders of the people.

48 The betrayer had arranged to give them a signal: “The man I kiss is the one you want — grab him!” 49 He went straight up to Yeshua, said, “Shalom, Rabbi!” and kissed him. 50 Yeshua said to him, “Friend, do what you came to do.” Then they moved forward, laid hold of Yeshua and arrested him.

51 At that, one of the men with Yeshua reached for his sword, drew it out and struck at the servant of the cohen hagadol, cutting off his ear. 52 Yeshua said to him, “Put your sword back where it belongs, for everyone who uses the sword will die by the sword. 53 Don’t you know that I can ask my Father, and he will instantly provide more than a dozen armies of angels to help me? 54 But if I did that, how could the passages in the Tanakh be fulfilled that say it has to happen this way?”

55 Then Yeshua addressed the crowd: “So you came out to take me with swords and clubs, the way you would the leader of a rebellion? Every day I sat in the Temple court, teaching; and you didn’t seize me then. 56 But all this has happened so that what the prophets wrote may be fulfilled.” Then the talmidim all deserted him and ran away. (CJB)

(QUESTION: We’re not told, but one has to wonder WHO the “crowd” consisted of … surely not just the Jews, but also Netzarim (the original followers of Yeshua’s teachings) and, of course, pagans…)

It’s important to note that these things did not happen at the whim of Caiaphas, the priests, or Pilate, for it was all part of God’s plan to save the world through the death of His Son. As Yeshua had said, “No one takes [my life] from me, but I lay it down of my own accord” (John 10:18)...."

BOTTOM LINE: Three days later, Messiah Yeshua rose again from the grave, fulfilling prophecy, defeating death, and emboldening His followers to share the good news of salvation throughout the known world. Caiaphas continued to persecute the Netzarim, being present at the trial of Peter and John (Acts 4:1–22), but his opposition did absolutely nothing to stop the spread of the gospel.

In view of the above, it becomes very clear that there are many misleading memes and articles on the Internet that can lead people astray! YHWH is certainly NOT happy with those who keep focusing on, and bringing others' attention to, all the “wrong” things...

SO, TO REITERATE, YESHUA HAD TO DIE TO BECOME OUR SAVIOR – our final “Sin Sacrifice” ... He KNEW who he was and why he was sent, and he accomplished his mission. STOP BLAMING “THE JEWS” and simply REJOICE! Never, ever stop pondering, marveling and being thankful for, the wondrous gift YHWH chose to give to a sinful and lost humanity in this fallen world!

Romans 11:11-12: "But I say: Have they (the Jews) so stumbled as to fall entirely? May it never be! Rather, by their stumbling, life has come to the Gentiles for (awakening) their jealousy. And if their stumbling was riches to the world, and their condemnation riches to the Gentiles; how much more their completeness?" (CJB)

THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS: Don't base your theology on personal opinions or lack of Bible knowledge!

Let’s end with the passage below:

Matthew 27: 26. Then he released Bar Abba to them and scourged Y’shua with whips, and delivered him to be put to death on the stake. 27. Then the soldiers of the governor took Y’shua to the Praetorium[1] and assembled against him all of the company of soldiers. 28. And they stripped him and clothed him with a robe of purple. 29. And they wove a crown of thorns and put it on his head, and a reed in his right hand. And they bowed down upon their knees before him and they were mocking at him and saying, “Peace King of the Jews.” 30. And they spat in his face and took the reed and were striking him upon his head. 31. And when they had mocked him, they took off the robe and put on his own clothes, and led him away to be put to death on the stake.

32. And while they were going out they found a man of Qureenya, whose name was Shimon. They compelled this man that he might carry his stake. 33. And they came to the place which is called Golgotha, which is interpreted, The Skull. 34. And they gave to him vinegar that was mixed with gall to drink. And he tasted it, and he did not desire to drink it. 35. And when they had nailed him to the stake, they divided his clothes by casting lots. 36. And they were sitting watching him there. 37. And they placed over his head the reason for his death in writing, THIS IS Y’SHUA, THE KING OF THE JEWS… (AENT)


The Praetorium was located on the North West corner of the Temple, inside the Antonia Fortress. It had a maximum capacity of 200 people. A handful of religious fanatics used crowd psychology against Y’shua to unfairly influence the outcome and the souls in attendance certainly did not represent the entire Jewish race; of the 200 attendess the greatest number were most likely soldiers who were protecting Rome’s interests in silencing Y’shua. Y’shua’s followers wanted to crown him as their king; this also brought much consternation to the elite of the Roman hierarchy.

It was not “the Jews” who put Y’shua to death, but a handful of “scribes and elders” with the consent of their officiating “chief rabbi” and “high priest” who were also political puppets of Rome and who feared for their own positions of power. History tells us that the common people favored Y’shua, and many priests also became followers of Y’shua; see Acts 6:7.

My thoughts about the upcoming eclipse on April 8, 2024

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT THE UPCOMING ECLIPSE: Stop worrying about it, and just enjoy this natural astronomical phenomenon and praise ADONAI!

Many "religious" people knock themselves out to spread doom and gloom every time there's a major astronomical event. Conspiracy theories fly across the Internet at lightening speed with everybody wanting to be the first to "warn" everyone about the "dangers" associated with total eclipses. It happens every time, and the conspiracy theorists are proven wrong every time...

Remember, some HR "bigwigs" did the same thing with the "Blood Moon Tetrad" back in 2014 - and ... NOTHING happened!

IN RESPONSE TO THE "BLOOD MOON" hype of 2014, my late husband, Air Force Lt. Col. (Ret.) William J. Welker, a physicist and amateur astronomer, wrote an article outlining certain facts - including this:

If an astronomical event is to have significance, it MUST be sanctified from Israel.

Think about it. There have been total lunar eclipses for thousands of years. All the astronomical events had to be visible from Israel, or they knew nothing about the event! (Please see our article for full details.)

No one could place significance on a total eclipse they did not see, and did not even know happened! Why would YHWH say in Genesis 1:14 that the sun, moon, stars were for "signs" if His people in the Land did not (or could not) SEE the sign?

To illustrate, Bill provided just ONE example of many, of a SIGNIFICANT astronomical event: the date of the nativity! He wrote:

"On the night of Sep 13th, 5 BCE, there was a well placed total Lunar Eclipse. By 'well placed', I mean that the moon rose that night, well before Jupiter, and was of course, nearly full. The eclipse began at about 8:30 PM, with the moon 35 degrees high – perfectly placed from Jerusalem to see the entire eclipse."

A total lunar eclipse marked the birth- fully visible to all of Israel! Now THAT's a sign!
