Michale Jackson's Rabbi Attacks Mel Gibson and the New Testament

Rabbi Schmuley Boteach, an Orthodox Jewish Rabbi who became a famous TV talking-head celebrity as pop singer Michael Jackson's spiritual advisor several years ago, has attacked actor Mel Gibson's upcoming movie, The Passion Of The Christ. The Rabbi accuses the movie, a biblical account of Jesus' last twelve hours leading to the cross, of being "poison," "a lie," and a "hoax."

Boteach, who became well-known in the early 90s as a TV personality and defender of Michael Jackson after the singer was accused of both anti-Semitism and child molestation, has written an article in the well known magazine, The Jerusalem Post, insisting that Mel Gibson's movie is a "blood libel" against the Jews.

Gospel Accounts are "Cheap Forgeries"

According to the Rabbi, Gibson's movie is seriously flawed and untrue because the New Testament of the Christian Bible is itself flawed and untrue.

"Cheap forgeries," Boteach says of the Gospel accounts; "absurd," he adds.

In his article blasting Gibson and the New Testament, Rabbi Boteach especially reacts to the account in the Christian Bible in which multitudes of Jews cry out to Pilate, "Crucify Him!." This, said the Rabbi, is a "deliberate effort on the part of New Testament editions to slander the Jews by accusing them of murderous intentions."

Romans Responsible, Not Jews

In fact, says Boteach, it was Pilate and the Romans who were responsible for Jesus' death, not the Jews. According to Boteach, the Jews did everything they could to free Jesus from Pilate's evil clutches.

"Anti-Semitic Falsifiers"

Boteach goes on to claim, with absolutely no proof provided to document his assertion, that "anti-Semitic falsifiers" doctored and changed the New Testament to blame Jesus' death on the Jews rather than the Romans. The secret truth, Boteach alleges, is that Jesus "hated, despised, and detested" the Romans. He "tried to overthrow" their authority and set up an earthly kingdom of the Jews. Boteach says that, actually, Jesus agreed with the Jewish rabbis.

What Jesus wanted most, Rabbi Boteach says, was to become "an earthly King of the Jews."

Michael Jackson and "Kosher Sex"

Rabbi Schmuley Boteach's opinions are read by many on the internet (;, and he is especially popular among Jews. He is author of a sex book for Jews called Kosher Sex and has also written a book on Dating Tips in The Ten Commandments.

Currently head of a Jewish group called L'Chaim, in recent years Rabbi Boteach was constantly by Michael Jackson's side. He introduced Michael to Nobel Prize winner Elie Wiesel, to former Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres, and to Jewish child development expert Stanley Greenspan.

Orthodox Rabbi Schmuley Boteach, who became a TV celebrity defending his pal, Michael Jackson, says Mel Gibson’s movie is based on the New Testament, which, Boteach claims, is a "lie."

Boteach's Goal: Bring Christians and Jews Together

Boteach publicly laments that he failed to bring "dignity" to Michael Jackson's life. So now, the Rabbi says he seeks to plow new ground by bringing Christians and Jews together. To achieve this unity, Boteach says that Christians will have to abandon the anti-Semitic lies told about the Jews in the New Testament and admit that the Gospels are lies—"cheap forgeries." After that, Boteach says he is hopeful that, "Jews and Christians might yet meet through the personality of Jesus of Nazareth, even as they both understand him in completely different ways."

Judaizers Have Much in Common

It seems Rabbi Schmuley Boteach and the "Israel First" Judaizers and Zionists who lead the Christian establishment have much in common. Falwell, Lindsey, Land, the Crouches, Copeland, Robertson, Stanley, Dobson, and the others already have agreed to gut much of the Holy Bible. They have endorsed the New Age Bible versions (NIV, ASV, RSV, NLT, etc.) which mangle, strike out and omit literally thousand of words, even entire chapters as compared to the inspired King James Version.

What would it hurt, they may reason, to scratch out a few more hundred words and add a few new passages as recommended by Rabbi Boteach? Especially if, in doing so, it could help bring Jews and Christians together?

Actor Mel Gibson’s movie, The Passion Of The Christ, is blasted as anti-Semitic by Jewish rabbis like Schmuley Boteach and by Jewish hate groups like the ADL and the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

The Scofield Connection: Jesus' Earthly Kingdom

In any case, as hard-core followers of the Scofield Bible commentaries, many of today's evangelical leaders—along with tens of thousands of Catholic priests and bishops—would also probably strongly endorse Rabbi Boteach's concept that all Jesus wanted was to be "an earthly king of the Jews." On that, too, most of the Judaizers within the Christian establishment and Jewish rabbis like Boteach can agree.

But, of course, in the Holy Bible Jesus denies any such goal of ever wanting to become earthly king of the Jews. Satan offered Jesus not only the kingdom of Israel, but all the kingdoms of earth, and Jesus soundly rebuked him. Jesus told Pilate, "My kingdom is not of this world." Jesus is, in fact, declared in the New Testament to already be King of a dominion far greater than anything man could ever imagine! Almighty God Himself has declared that Jesus' heavenly realm is all-encompassing, and His throne is everlasting:

"But unto the son He saith, THY THRONE, O GOD, IS FOR EVER AND EVER. A sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom." (Hebrews 1:8)

"That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth." (Philippians 2:10)

Naturally, Rabbi Schmuley Boteach, his fellow Jewish Orthodox fanatics, and their Judaizer associates in today's evangelical churches won't go along with this. They teach that Christ's Kingdom is future, not now, and that He's presently sitting around up in heaven a deprived monarch-in-waiting.

New Testament verses such as the above will have to be blotted out. After all, hasn't Boteach declared the Gospel accounts to be "Cheap forgeries?" I suppose this may well be used as the pretext for their removal. Anyone who opposes the coming, unholy revisions to the New Testament will no doubt suffer the insult of being branded "anti-Semitic" and "Jew-hater."

And, I suppose, the following key passage of the King James Version will also have to be scissored out. Clearly, this passage, too, is unacceptable to Boteach and the "Christian" Judaizer crowd. If they get their way, it will go, and soon:

"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book. And if any man shall take away from the Words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city…Even so, come, Lord Jesus."
