    How did Jesus read the Elohim stories?
    How did Jesus read the Yahweh stories?

    Jesus did not read the Hebrew canon in a fundamentalist way.
    He and his apostles almost never reach for a plain reading of those texts.

    Next, Jesus says, “In the past you’ve heard this, but I say this.”
    “Moses said this, I saw this.”

    Jesus is not endorsing the Mosaic teachings. He repudiates them: “Moses said this but I saw this.”

    All who came before were thieves and robbers. [That’s what the Elohim did.]

    There’s a moment in Luke and Matthew’s gospels where Jesus asks,
    Which of you fathers, when asked by your children for food would give them snakes?
    If your children asked for bread, would you give them snakes?

    Jesus is referencing when the people of Israel were starving in the desert. The people go to Moses and ask, can you get Yahweh to give us some food.

    God gave them manna.
    No, you’re referencing Numbers Chapter 21, 5-6.

    and spoke against God and against Moses: “Why have you led us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? There is no bread or water, and we detest this wretched food!”

    So the LORD sent venomous snakes among the people, and many of the Israelites were bitten and died.

    So, Jesus is distancing himself from Torah, from that vision of Yahweh.

    This is why this video is so important. Jesus repudiates the god of Moses.
