Jesus did Walk the Courts of the Jewish Temple

Jesus Scourages Money Changers 2 lg

Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu writing for the Israel National News catches some information that Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas calls the existence of the Jewish Temple as alleged. This is typical double speak for claiming the Temple never existed.

Then Gedalyahu came up with a bit of logic that is lost on the West. If Abbas is claiming the Jewish Temple never existed then Abbas is saying Jesus never went through the Temple chasing out the money changers. I might it also means Jesus was never dragged to the presence of the Jewish High Priest at the Jewish Temple in the night the Sanhedrin condemned Jesus as a blasphemer for asserting he is the Son of God.

These are essential Christian beliefs of which the latter leads to the Lord Jesus Christ’s crucified death, burial and finally bodily Resurrection that delivers humanity from the bondage of this world age in which Satan is influential.

Where is the OUTRAGE from Christians in the West, particularly Biblical Christians from America?

Part of the lack of outrage is because the Western Mainstream Media (MSM) fails horribly in exposing the hatred that emanates from Islam toward Jews and Christians. There is also fault to pass upon Christian leaders as well. When the pulpit is silent about Palestinian Muslims blaspheming Jesus, then how is the Church to react appropriately in public national prayer to keep the Temple Mount at least as holy to Jews and Christians as it is to Islam.

Here is the story.

Abbas Denies Jewish Temple and Christian Theology
Abbas refers to the “alleged” Jewish Temple, but if not Jewish, how did Jesus chase the money changers?

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas frequently refers to the “alleged” Jewish Temple, but if it was not Jewish, there is no basis for Christian belief, as written in the New Testament in Matthew (21:12), that Jesus chased Jewish “moneychangers" from the Holy Temple. However, Christians so far have not reacted to the implicit denial of their belief.

The PA campaign to eradicate Jewish history at the Temple Mount, as well as in the rest of Israel, has escalated sharply in the past two years.

Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) documented and translated statements from Palestinian Authority leaders, including Abbas, his advisor Ahmad Al-Ruweidi, clerics and ministers, all of whom used the term "alleged Temple" 97 times in 2011 and 2012.

PMW pointed out that the number 97 refers only to the term “alleged Temple” and does not include thousands of other denials of the existence of the First and Second Temples and Jewish history in the rest of Israel. Many Jewish sites, such as Rachel’s Tomb at the edge of Bethlehem and less than a mile from Jerusalem, has been given an Arab name by the PA, whose clerics claim it was a Muslim site - before Islam was founded.

Last week, Abbas said in the official PA WAFA news agency and in the PA official daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, ”[Israel's] purpose is to achieve its black goals: Destroying the Al-Aqsa Mosque, building the 'alleged Temple,' taking over the Muslim and Christian holy sites, and destroying its [Jerusalem's] institutions in order to empty it, uproot its residents, and continue its occupation and Judaization.”

PMW also uncovered Abbas' statement “that all of Israel's archeological digs and tunnels... will not change the reality of the city... and will not create a [Jewish] right based on fantasy and legends.”

The statement ended, “There will be no peace, security, or stability unless the occupation [Israel], its settlements and settlers will be evacuated from our holy city and the eternal capital of our state."

Abbas has previously declared that “Palestinian” history is 9,000 years old and said last year, on the eve of Israel’s Independence Day, "Netanyahu, you are incidental in history. We are the people of history. We are the owners of history,” PMW stated.
