Excerpt from A. C. Cuza’s Nationality in the Arts

580 words

Translated by V. Cetnic

The Christian faith is, to this day, seen by many as a part of Judaism – as a continuation, as a reform, or a completion of the Jewish faith – and Jesus as a Jew. And if these were true, the theory of Jewish cultural sterility would be fully denied.

Against this grave error – which darkens the understanding of things – we affirm, and will prove, in this annex:

That Jesus was not a Jew – and it is blasphemy, religiously, but also scientifically, to consider Him as such.

That the Christian faith is not part of Judaism – from which it does not develop, but, from the beginning, being against and disbanding it.

Firstly, the origin of Jesus may be considered from two points of view: the metaphysical, religious one and the physical, profane one.

From a metaphysical point of view, for all of those who believe – and he who does not believe, who does not have faith, is not a true Christian – Jesus is the “son of God,” the incarnation of the divine, from the Galilean Virgin Mary:

“And having come in, the angel said to her, ‘Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed you are among women.’” (Luke 1:28)

The mystery of divine incarnation – a mystery only in the narrow understanding of humans – the Evangelist tried to bring closer to our understanding through philosophical interpretation: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (John 1:1)

The divinity of Jesus, once admitted, excludes any form of nationality. In this domain, spiritually, the affirmation that “Jesus was a Jew” – being empirical – is either ignorance or blasphemy.

From a physical point of view, judging Him as human – as all of those who do not believe do – we know one thing for certain: that Jesus was a “Galilean.”

“And when they had performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city Nazareth.” (Luke 2:39) “And He said unto them, ‘Ye will surely say unto me this proverb, Physician, heal thyself: whatsoever we have heard done in Capernaum [in Galilee], do also here in thy country’.” (Luke 4:23) In Galilee He first preached the Truth. (Luke 4:44)

From Galilee were all of His disciples, from Magdala, Bethsaida, Capernaum, from the shores of Genezareth, or the “Sea of Galilee,” except one Judas Iscariot, a Jew – who betrayed Him in the end – from Kariot, fortress of the sons of Judah, near the border of Edom (Joshua 15:25). And after this, they were known as Galileans: “Then after an hour had passed, another confidently affirmed, saying ‘Surely this fellow is also with Him, for he is a Galilean.’” (Luke 22:59)

“Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, He departed into Galilee . . .” (Matthew 4:12) “And they departed thence, and passed through Galilee; and He would not that any man should know it.” (Mark 9:30) For it was not safe except among the Galileans: “After these things Jesus walked in Galilee; for He did not walk in Judea, because the Jews sought to kill Him.” (John 7:1)

    May I be a heretic and question if there is any truth in the claims by some, that there was no historical Jesus?

    So is this guy a Marcionite? Because last I heard that was a heresy. Also Christs divine nature does not cancel out his human nature, which presumably would include his physical race (that would be the monophysite heresy). Its a bit late to go revising all this stuff now, i would have thought. Even if the jews are no longer yahwehs chosen people, the notion that they ever could have been is one of the more absurd that i have come across.

    I do believe that Romania is of the Eastern Orthodox faith. My understanding of them is that their interpretations are based upon the revelations of the Holy Fathers and are different from Catholic and Protestant beliefs. The schism between the Catholics and the Eastern Orthodox has not been healed despite centuries of ecumenism. They will not compromise with certain beliefs and the structure of their church hierarchy, whereas Catholics and Protestants are much more politically inclined and willing to toss what is not favourable in the current year.

    The Christian faith is the continuation, reform and completion of the holy religion of the Old Testament Israelites, of which rabbinical Judaism is an apostasy.

      Exactly. Jesus and his followers were undoubtedly religiously Jewish under the terms of the Old Covenant, whether or not you choose to dwell on distinctions between Judeans and Galileans, etc. They made pilgrimages to the Temple for Jewish feasts, Jesus was dedicated to the Lord in the Temple as a first-born child, his relative Zechariah was a priest, and the Apostle John was likely of a priestly family. Examples could be multiplied.

      The Old Covenant ceased when the Temple veil was torn in two on Good Friday, and the Church was initiated on the following Pentecost Sunday. Judaism was reconstructed along rabbinic Talmudic lines by the Pharisees (the only surviving sect) after the destruction of the Temple in AD70. Post-Temple Judaism is a fabrication, a pale counterfeit of the Old Covenant religion.

    Jew, Hebrew, Galilean, Israelite, Syrian, Christian, Semite, Judean, etc. these are all branches of the same tree. It’s like arguing that Nationalsocialism isn’t German, because Hitler came from Austria, totally superflous and just playing around with words.

    If Christianity is supossed to be a White religion, then Jesus would have been born in a small sleepy Roman town in what is not southern France and he would have written down his religion in a well-educated Latin and he would have preached his religion in the port towns of Europe.
