Matthew, Chapter 23-24a
The Authority & Hypocrisy of the Pharisees. A Failed Prediction about Jerusalem.
Yeshu clearly affirms the Biblical authority of the Rabbinic Sages, and thus the validity of Rabbinic Judaism. Reading from Deut. 17:8-12.
Reference to hypocrisy about Tefillin and Tzitzit. A short review of the laws and history of observance of these mitzvot.
The definition of what is a Rabbi, a decider of Torah law.
The hypocrisy of the Pharisees, not just in Yeshu's words. Reading from the Talmud, Sotah, about the hypocritical Pershim.
Major question about the authenticity of the text with regards to the section about vows. The text does not properly reflect the correct understanding of Torah law in this matter. This is something that Yeshu as a Rabbi was sure to know. It is therefore questionable, if the present version properly reflects his words or those of his fellow Jew, Matthew.
Yeshu and Jerusalem, he falsely predicted that “there shall not be left one stone on top of another.” The Western Wall (Kotel) clearly proves this to be false.
