Jesus Spoke Gentile Language


by Willis A. Carto

Although there will forever be debate over the meanings of the words "Jewish" and "Jew" and "Judah" and even the word "Israel" as they are used both in the Bible, in subsequent historical and religious teachings, and in modern usage itself, the late William Dudley Pelley provided this illustrative capsule overview providing a response to the question as to which branch of "the Jews" did Jesus Christ belong. Pelley's answer:


Jesus Christ belonged to neither branch! Shocking as it becomes to modem Christians, an examination of the evidence now coming to light reveals that Jesus Christ was not a Jew or any other kind of an Israelite! This, of course, strikes at the very core and heart of present Christian doctrine. Nevertheless, sooner or later, Aryan Christians have got to face the facts. It takes a whole volume in itself to present these facts, but such a volume is available.
In the first place, the only true Jews are descendants of the Tribe of Judah, and even if Biblical bases be taken for argument, the New Testament says in a score of places that He emphatically did not come from that tribe. Christ was a Galilean .... Galilee got its name from the Gauls, brought down by the Assyrian king when he denuded the northern kingdom of Hebrews. The proper spelling of the word should be Gaulilee. Over and over, too, the New Testament writings speak of "Galilee of the gentiles." ...
The genealogies of Christ in ... two New Testament gospels do not determine the matter, since they do not agree, and since they do not agree, neither one of them can be established as authentic. Moreover, Jews reckoned genealogies through the father, always. Christians are confronted by the dilemma that if they make a tenet of their faith that Mary conceived Christ by the Holy Ghost, then she did not conceive Christ by Joseph her husband; and if she did not do the latter, then the Hebrew genealogies, tracing Jesus's ancestry back to David and Abraham, are fabrications.
Jesus did not speak the prevalent Jewish tongue of the period; He conversed in what was a gentile language. At no place did He Himself confirm that He was a Jew, and the words before Pilate, "Thou sayest!" were merely a colloquialism, not of acquiescence to Pilate's remark but of the thought: "You're doing the talking, I'm keeping quiet!"
