I have to admit that I am no expert on either the Torah or the Talmud, BUT I would like an expert on the Talmud explain in his own words, how that document (i.e., “oral law” as opposed to the written law that was given by Moses) came to be, and we shall see the origins of the Sanhedrin, the group of men that were formed because Moses believed God had placed a burden too large to bear upon him when making him the leader of the Jewish Exodus from Egypt.  But will God ever give you a burden (or really, a temptation) bigger than you can bear? (because really, Moses problem was a temptation from the devil who whispered in his ear “God is giving you  more than you can handle”)

“There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God [is] faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear [it.]”
— 1st Cor 10:13

Here is their own words on how the Babylonian Talmud (oral law, which is SEPARATE from the law of Moses handed down from God) came about:  (HaShem is their title for God, a word they do not say)
The oral law reaches back to Moshe (Moses) for it’s beginnings:

Shemot (Exodus) 18:13-16 The next day Moshe took his seat to serve as judge for the people, and they stood around him from morning till evening. When his father-in-law saw all that Moshe was doing for the people, he said, “What is this you are doing for the people? Why do you alone sit as judge, while all these people stand around you from morning till evening?” Moshe answered him, “Because the people come to me to seek HaShem’s will. Whenever they have a dispute, it is brought to me, and I decide between the parties and inform them of HaShem’s decrees and laws.”

Moshe is telling the people about HaShem’s laws and decrees before the written Torah is given. The written Torah will be given in Shemot (Exodus) 20. That which Moshe began is made sure in the written Torah:

Devarim (Deuteronomy) 17:8-13 If cases come before your courts that are too difficult for you to judge–whether bloodshed, lawsuits or assaults–take them to the place HaShem your HaShem will choose. Go to the priests, who are Levites, and to the judge who is in office at that time. Inquire of them and they will give you the verdict. You must act according to the decisions they give you at the place HaShem will choose. Be careful to do everything they direct you to do. Act according to the law they teach you and the decisions they give you. Do not turn aside from what they tell you, to the right or to the left. The man who shows contempt for the judge or for the priest who stands ministering there to HaShem your HaShem must be put to death. You must purge the evil from Israel. All the people will hear and be afraid, and will not be contemptuous again.

That oral law which Moshe began, is perpetuated in the oral law delivered by the Levites and the judges.

The last sentence “That oral law which Moshe began, is perpetuated in the oral law delivered by the Levites and the judges” refers to a set of traditions and laws that are separate from what was given to Moses by God.  So you see, that a MAN (Moses father-in-law, a Medianite) convinced Moses to allow the introduction of “judges” that did not come from God.  And the fact that it was his father-in-law (A Medianite), whose people would ensnare the Jew’s as they were in exile for 40 years (see Numbers Chapter 25) shows you this was not from God.  And how did the Medianites ensnare the Jew’s?  By having their whorish women trail behind them, enticing the men in all manner of sexual perversion, that led to the corruption and “stain” on the people.  This was the immorality of Baal-Peor, the Lord of the Flies (see my post on this subject).

And when did the 70 elders (the beginnings of the Sanhedrin) appear?  Numbers 11:11-17 show that when Moses complained to the Lord about the “burden placed upon him” that God told him to choose them out as Judges.  It was these very “Judges” that are part of the “Rebellion of Korah” in Numbers 16:1-35, whereby God swallowed up 250 of them (burning some of them with fire)…It was the leader (the High Priest Caiaphas) of this very Sanhedrin (The Elders) who said that one man (Jesus) should die instead of an entire nation:

Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council,
and said, What do we? for this man (Jesus) doeth many miracles. If we
let him thus alone, all [men] will believe on him: and the Romans shall
come and take away both our place and nation. And one of them,
[named] Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them,
Ye know nothing at all, Nor consider that it is expedient for
us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation
perish not.  And this spake he not of himself: but being high
priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;  And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad. Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death.” — John 11:47-50

As to whether the Sanhedrin followed the Law of God, or the man-made law of Talmud, we only have to look to Jesus and the subject of washing hands:

“…Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying, Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread. But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition? For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death. But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch…” — Matthew 5:1-9, 14

And how does the Babylonian Talmud, which the Sanhedrin followed, treat our Lord and Savior?

“The master said: Jesus the Nazarene practiced magic and deceived and led Israel astray.” – Talmud Sanhedrin 107b, Sotah 47a

the Talmud records as follows. There was an incident in which the Hasmonean King Yannai killed off many Torah scholars (because of a debate regarding his pedigree). R. Yehoshua ben Perachiah and his students fled to Alexandria. When stability returned he and his students returned to the Holy Land. On their return they stayed at a certain inn. The hostess gave them exceptionally good service. R. Yehoshua commented, “How nice is this matron!” His wayward student, misunderstanding his teacher’s intent, responded, “My teacher, her eyes are round.” The rabbi responded, “Wicked one! This is what you are dealing with?!” He placed him in excommunication.  Jesus returned to his teacher many times to plead for forgiveness. R. Yehoshua repeatedly refused to accept him (drawing the Talmud’s criticism that one should never push away too strongly). One day the student came to the rabbi when he was praying and could not respond. He signaled Jesus to stay, for he was that day prepared to accept him back. Jesus, however, misunderstood the gesture and left, at that point severing himself from Judaism entirely (falling to idolatry).” —

He then went and raised by incantations Jesus [in Vilna edition: “the sinners of Israel”; “Jesus” appears in Munich 95 and Vatican 130, 140 manuscripts]. He asked them: Who is in repute in the other world? They replied: Israel. What about joining them? They replied: Seek their welfare, seek not their harm. Whoever touches them touches the apple of his eye. He said: What is your punishment? They replied: With boiling hot excrement, since a Master has said: Whoever mocks at the words of the Sages is punished with boiling hot excrement.” — Babylonian Talmud

“ was taught: On the eve of the Passover Yeshu was hanged. For forty days before the execution took place, a herald went forth and cried, ‘He is going forth to be stoned because he has practised sorcery and enticed Israel to apostacy. Any one who can say anything in his favour, let him come forward and plead on his behalf.’ But since nothing was brought forward in his favour he was hanged on the eve of the Passover! — Ulla retorted: ‘Do you suppose that he was one for whom a defence could be made? Was he not a Mesith [enticer], concerning whom Scripture says, Neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him?  With Yeshu however it was different, for he was connected with the government [or royalty, i.e., influential].’  Our Rabbis taught: Yeshu had five disciples, Matthai, Nakai, Nezer, Buni and Todah…” — Babylonian Talmud

A very important prophecy concerning Christ was made by Jacob (Israel) upon his death-bed concerning the tribe of Judah:

The sceptre shall not  depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him [shall] the gathering of the people [be. ] Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass’s colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes:”
— Genesis 49:10

The sceptre was a symbol of authority and kingship, and the lawgiver was the High Priest and the Sanhedrin.  Shilo is a Hebrew word meaning “He that is to be sent”, or the Messiah.  The part about the foal and ass’s colt is a direct prophecy of Jesus (the Messiah in Genesis 49:10) and his triumphant entry into Jerusalem in Matthew 21:

“And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to
Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples, Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose [them,] and bring [them] unto me.  And if any [man] say ought  unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send them. All this was done, that it might be fulfilled
which was spoken by the prophet, saying, Tell ye the daughter of
Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass,
and a colt the foal of an ass. And the disciples went, and did
as Jesus commanded them, And brought the ass, and the colt, and
put on them their clothes, and they set [him] thereon. And a
very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down
branches from the trees, and strawed [them] in the way.  And the
multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna
to the Son of David: Blessed [is] he that cometh in the name of the
Lord; Hosanna in the highest”  — Matthew 21:1-9

We know that, within one generation of Jesus death, the temple complex was utterly destroyed and the tribes of Israel (save the tribe of Levi) were lost, and that the Scepter and the lawgiver were gone, never to appear again until just before Jesus returns.

So, the Sanhedrin who performed so many evil things is gone, right?  But, what if they are the “Hidden Hand”, the “All-seeing eye” that is playing the world as a puppet on a string, awaiting the time that “their” Messiah (the Anti-Christ) makes his entrance?  I submit they are.  Remember that Paul wrote:

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus
Christ, and [by] our gathering together unto him, That ye be not
soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word,
nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.  Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come,]  except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be  revealed, the son of perdition (Anti-Christ);  Who opposeth and exalteth himself  above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God  sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?  And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be
revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth [will let,] until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: [Even him,] whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,  And
with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because
they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness”

— 2nd Thessalonians 2:1 – 12

In this outstanding video tour of the Temple Mount, a Rabbi of a group that seeks to rebuild the Temple explains the fact that they have to rebuild the Temple before the Messiah can return.  However, once that being (the son of Perdition) sits in the Temple and declares himself to be God, then all Orthodox Jew’s will recognize him as Satan, and repent and remember who Christ was, the real Messiah:

And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] I will seek to  destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.  And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for [his] only [son,] and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for [his] firstborn.

— Zechariah 12:9-10

And finally, who was the Sanhedrin really worshipping?  Satan, as Jesus declared to them as their father, but also Tammuz (The Solar God who in actuality was a form of nimrod) –

“…He said furthermore unto me, Son of man, seest thou what they do? even the great abominations that the house of Israel committeth here, that I should go far off from my sanctuary? but turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations. And he brought me to the door of the court; and when I looked, behold a hole in the wall. Then said he unto me, Son of man, dig now in the wall: and when I had digged in the wall, behold a door.  And he said unto me, Go in, and behold the wicked abominations that they do here. So I went in and saw; and behold every form of creeping things, and abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel, pourtrayed upon the wall round about. And there stood before them seventy men of the ancients of the house of Israel, and in the midst of them stood Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan, with every man his censer in his hand; and a thick cloud of incense went up. Then said he unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen what the ancients of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagery? for they say, the LORD seeth us not; the LORD hath forsaken the earth. He said also unto me, Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations that they do. Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the LORD’s house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz. Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these. And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD’s house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east. Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger: and, lo, they put the branch to their nose. Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them” — Ezekiel 8:6-18

Note:  So that I am clear:  I believe the Jewish people are the chosen people of God, that God will save the Jewish people and the land of Israel when they are attacked in the last days; and that as Christian’s we must defend the right of Israel to exist.  However, I do NOT believe the Sanhedrin, or the government of Israel are to be defended.  They are corrupt and do harm to their own citizens, and the Sanhedrin was the cause of many death’s of Christians and Jesus Christ…
