Sometimes, yes. Some who are somewhat educated will say that the word “Jew” was never in the original languages, which is somewhat true. The original Hebrew says the word is “yehud” or “yehudiy”, which means “judean”, one of the twelve tribes of Israel. A lot of Jew-haters will bring this up but since the first part of foolishness is to hate Jews, none are able to actually think clearly. The original Hebrew words were oftentimes an umbrella term for all of the tribes of Israel, due to their common religious belief. The translated Bibles do a good job separating “Jew” from “Judean”, because in some instances, depending on where the story’s origin is, a specific tribe is mentioned.
Proof of my assertion lies in different places in the Bible. One of the most clear is in the book of Esther. One of the most fascinating stories of the Bible. As it is written, Haman, the King’s top commander, wanted to eradicate the Jews, after the Judeans were carried away to Babylon. The original word was “yehudiy”. There were other tribes that were carried away, because it’s clearly written that Esther and Mordecai were of the tribe of Benjamin. There were other tribes that were amongst them. Jerusalem was divided in four parts with the Judeans controlling only one. “Yehudiy” could not have come from the word “Jerusalem”, but those other tribes living in Jerusalem were carried away. Now do you believe Haman wanted to only kill that tribe and leave the rest of the tribes of Israel be? I think not. There is no explaining this fact away. It cannot be done. Benjamites were clearly described as Judeans in the original Hebrew, so “yehudiy” must have been an umbrella term for all the tribes of Israel at least in this instance for their common religious belief.
Recently I had someone arguing with me about the differences in the tribes and even said I was a false teacher. He was also mad that I took a few hours to approve and reply to his comments. I’m very sorry. I did specifically ask him to be patient before he blew up, but I guess he didn’t understand what I clearly wrote. He kept going about the northern tribes and how they weren’t really good Hebrews, or something like that. Let’s get to one of those northern tribes and what is written about it in Revelation. This is another undisputable fact Jew-haters can’t explain away, and that is the battle of Armageddon. I’ve talked about this before but think it’s pertinent here. Armageddon is a place- Megiddo. It does say in Revelation 16:16 “a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon”. In the original Hebrew, Armageddon would mean “mountains of Megiddo”. The nations aligned with Satan will come and meet for war there. Megiddo is in northern Israel in the land of Manasseh. If you are against the Jews, meaning all of the tribes of Israel, you align yourself with Satan, therefore cannot be a Christian.
