Neither Jew Nor Greek Meaning? Galatians 3:28 Simplified: Revealing Study!

Contents hide


Neither Jew nor Greek? There are many problematic verses in the Bible and this one has most recently become one of them. Before the popular rise of the Hebrew Israelites, people just took it for what it says: it does not matter who you are, as long as you are in Messiah, you are one.

However, the Hebrew Israelites have introduced an interesting and albeit challenging doctrine. It is one that is not easily overcome by those who are not weaned from the milk and drawn from the breast.

It is challenging the old beliefs to the core, and the Hebrew Israelites are even causing one pastor to admit, they do not have an answer for the Hebrew Israelite doctrines.


So which one is right? Is either of them right or are they both wrong?

Today we are going to look at neither Jew nor Greek, and by extension neither Jew nor Gentile, in detail.

First we are going to look at the traditional Gentile belief and then dive into what the Hebrew Israelites teach, then we are going to test them against the scriptures and see what the bible really teaches.

So in a nutshell, here is our approach. This is what we will look at in order:

  1. Neither Jew nor Gentile: the traditional belief
  2. The Hebrew Israelite belief
  3. What the bible really teaches

neither jew nor greek meaning



The traditional belief of Christians with regard to Galatians 3:28 is that there is neither Jew nor Gentile. So there is no national identity as all become united in their Messiah Jesus Christ. Hence there is no need to talk about Israel or whether one is a Gentile. The Messiah makes us now have a new identity.

Check out Who Is Jesus Christ?

Now this would appear to make sense. We have long learned about a loving G-o-d who loves everybody, loves the sinner.

Hence, it would appear like a no-brainer to Christians and those not understanding deeper scriptural truths. They would believe it is common sense that G-o-d would forget all the atrocities of the Gentiles, forget all the promises he made to his people because they continued to disobey him.

However, what about this?

Jer 31:37  Thus saith YAHUAH; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith YAHUAH.

Now has anyone been able to measure heaven? Has there been a report of anyone searching out the foundations of the earth? Well, since not, no matter what Israel has done, he will not forsake his people!

Jer 51:5  For Israel hath not been forsaken, nor Judah of his Aluah, of YAHUAH of hosts; though their land was filled with sin against the Holy One of Israel.



“No need to talk about Israel” presents another major problem with this doctrine: replacement theology.

This doctrine seeks to trivialize the people of the Most High, and to ignore all the prophecies about his people. Christians take it to say all are one in Jesus Christ and hence in the religion called Christianity. therefore Israel is of little or no importance.

Again, the Most High tells us that his people will never cease from being a nation before him:

Jer 31:35  Thus saith YAHUAH, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; YAHUAH of hosts is his name:

Jer 31:36  If those ordinances depart from before me, saith YAHUAH, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever.


He also told us of a confederacy of nations who will hate him and seek to blot out the name of his people. Hence they would end up trying to replace his people.

Psa 83:2  For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.

Psa 83:3  They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.

Psa 83:4  They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.




This doctrine of saying neither Jew nor Greek and replacing his people because we are now neither Jew nor Gentiles is right along the line of replacement theology and the Psalm 83 conspiracy.

Now when we look at the nation that heads the confederacy, we see it is the tabernacles of Edom, the same people who gave us Christianity!

Psa 83:5  For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:

Psa 83:6  The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;

So how can we take these people seriously? It gets worse when we understand who Edom is today, and how their main tool is replacement theology as Esau seeks to bully his way in and take back the birthright from Jacob.

You absolutely must read our number one post, Who are the Edomites Today to understand what was just said, and to understand the world as it matches up with the word in the end times.

To make it worse, the bible never said “neither Jew nor Gentile.” That was added by the Gentiles to make it seem even more personal to all of them. It makes them feel assured that the Most High was seeking a replacement.

So next we need to examine the Hebrew Israelite teaching of neither Jew nor Greek. Now to any open minded bible scholar, this is a more convincing explanation as it goes into deeper levels than just taking the word for what it says.

Noticeably, the Hebrew Israelites have gone into the meaning of the word Greek coupled with its historical facts. Let’s look at the verse again:

Gal 3:28  There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in HaMashiach Yahusha.

Let’s look at the meaning of Greek as used.

From G1671; a Hellen (Grecian) or inhabitant of Hellas; by extension a Greek speaking person, especially a non-Jew: – Gentile, Greek.
Total KJV occurrences: 27


The Greek call their country Hellas, so they are the Hellen. Now here it is described in the acts of former Greek king Antiochus IV (Antiochus Epiphanes). This will give us an understanding of the historical context of the Hebrew Israelite interpretation of the verse:

1Ma 1:41  Moreover king Antiochus wrote to his whole kingdom, that all should be one people,

1Ma 1:42  And every one should leave his laws: so all the heathen agreed according to the commandment of the king.
1Ma 1:43  Yea, many also of the Israelites consented to his religion, and sacrificed unto idols, and profaned the sabbath.

1Ma 1:44  For the king had sent letters by messengers unto Jerusalem and the cities of Juda that they should follow the strange laws of the land,

1Ma 1:45  And forbid burnt offerings, and sacrifice, and drink offerings, in the temple; and that they should profane the sabbaths and festival days:

1Ma 1:46  And pollute the sanctuary and holy people:

1Ma 1:47  Set up altars, and groves, and chapels of idols, and sacrifice swine’s flesh, and unclean beasts:

1Ma 1:48  That they should also leave their children uncircumcised, and make their souls abominable with all manner of uncleanness and profanation:

1Ma 1:49  To the end they might forget the law, and change all the ordinances.

1Ma 1:50  And whosoever would not do according to the commandment of the king, he said, he should die.

1Ma 1:51  In the selfsame manner wrote he to his whole kingdom, and appointed overseers over all the people, commanding the cities of Juda to sacrifice, city by city.

1Ma 1:52  Then many of the people were gathered unto them, to wit every one that forsook the law; and so they committed evils in the land;

1Ma 1:53  And drove the Israelites into secret places, even wheresoever they could flee for succour.


It was as a result of this abomination that Israelites were exiled in Greece, because a group of Israelites called the Maccabees came together and rebelled under Greek rule, also killing as many of their people they could find who had sided with the Greeks.

Maccabees, also spelled Machabees, (flourished 2nd century BCE, Palestine), priestly family of Jews who organized a successful rebellion against the Seleucid ruler Antiochus IV and reconsecrated the defiled Temple of Jerusalem. – Source.


Here is the record of the Israelites siding with the Greeks:

1Ma 1:10  And there came out of them a wicked root Antiochus surnamed Epiphanes, son of Antiochus the king, who had been an hostage at Rome, and he reigned in the hundred and thirty and seventh year of the kingdom of the Greeks.

1Ma 1:11  In those days went there out of Israel wicked men, who persuaded many, saying, Let us go and make a covenant with the heathen that are round about us: for since we departed from them we have had much sorrow.

1Ma 1:12  So this device pleased them well.

1Ma 1:13  Then certain of the people were so forward herein, that they went to the king, who gave them licence to do after the ordinances of the heathen:


These Jews fled to Greece and became one with the Greeks.

So the argument of the Hebrew Israelites is that when it says neither Jews nor Greeks, it was speaking of the Jews who were in Greece.



However, here is the first problem with this doctrine. Galatia was not in Greece. It is in the country that today is called Turkey.

Galatia (/ɡəˈleɪʃə/; Ancient Greek: Γαλατία, Galatía, “Gaul”) was an ancient area in the highlands of central Anatolia, roughly corresponding to the provinces of Ankara and Eskişehir, in modern Turkey. – Source


So G1672, Hellen, a word that means a Greek speaking person, an inhabitant of Hellas, a non-Jew, a Gentile, how could it be speaking of an inhabitant of Greece, a Greek or one who speaks Greek, when Galatia is actually located in Turkey?

What about the meaning Gentile? Remember, it also means Gentile.

From G1671; a Hellen (Grecian) or inhabitant of Hellas; by extension a Greek speaking person, especially a non-Jew: – Gentile, Greek.
Total KJV occurrences: 27


Hence we have to take the meaning of neither Jew nor Greek and by extension neither Jew nor Gentile through a rugged test, as both doctrines do not look 100% rock solid at all.



Now here is where it gets interesting. We are going to prove what the scriptures actually say is the true meaning of neither Jew nor Greek and by extension, neither Jew nor Gentile. But we first have to show the meaning of Greek and Gentiles side by side.

neither jew nor greek meaning

Now this is so important that we have to show what each means in as simple a manner as possible. Hence we present them visually from what is above.

neither jew nor greek hellen ethnos meaningsAs you can see, G1672 (Hellen) refers to someone who has a connection with the Hellens (the Greeks), either by birth, speech or by living there. This person is not a Jew. It is also a word used generally for a Gentile.

On the other hand G1484 (ethnos) refers specifically to someone who is not a Jew, but from a different nation. This nation is pagan or a nation of heathens. Like Hellen, it also refers generally to Gentiles.

A Non-Jew

The fact that it refers to a non-Jew is significant. The Strong’s Concordance from which we get the meanings usually refer to Jews synonymously with Israelites.

They do not usually differentiate as they have been seemingly influenced by the nation called Israel being populated by people who call themselves Jews. Hence they make Jews synonymous with Israel. So when the concordance say “non-Jew,” they really mean non-Israelite.


Now what is the difference between the meanings of Hellen and Ethnos? Hellen can be more referring to the Greek person, speaker or inhabitant, while ethnos is speaking of any person who is not an Israelite.

Indeed, ethnos has the same meaning as the word for Gentile used in the old testament.

גֹּי    גּוֹי
gôy    gôy
go’ee, go’-ee
Apparently from the same root as H1465 (in the sense of massing); a foreign nation; hence a Gentile; also (figuratively) a troop of animals, or a flight of locusts: – Gentile, heathen, nation, people.

Interestingly, G1672 (Hellen) also carries the same meaning at times.



Thus we must bear this in mind if we are to get the true meaning of neither Jew nor Greek (neither Jew nor Gentile).  So let’s begin to show the real truth about the meaning of neither Jew nor Greek.



We are going to begin by showing the word “Greek” being used in reference to the whole world. Can we prove  the Hebrew Israelite claim of neither Jew nor Greek meaning only the lost children of Israel (and none other) to be false?

Yes we can! Let us prove it quickly.

Rom 3:9  What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles (Gi672 – Hellen), that they are all under sin;


So he went on:

Rom 3:10  As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
Rom 3:11  There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after Aluah.
Rom 3:12  They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.


But who is he speaking to that is not righteous? Is it only those from the house of Judah and the lost house of Israel? Isn’t it everyone in the world is unrighteous?

Because, get this: if it is only speaking to the house of Judah (Jews) and the lost northern tribes, then it means the rest of the world is righteous!

Do you see already how untrue this notion of neither Jew nor Greek meaning only Israelites really is? But let us not use reasoning, let the word show it to be wrong in this upcoming verse:


Rom 3:19  Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world (G2889 – kosmos) may become guilty before Aluah.


All the world is referring to the whole world! Not just Israel, because G2889 (kosmos) refers to the world in regard to the land.

So neither Jews nor Greek?

“Greek” there is showing as meaning the whole world, so it shows from the beginning that it was a term used for all Gentiles as is the word ethnos (G1484),

We have just started and already the Hebrew Israelite claim of only Israelites can be saved and “Greek” meaning only Israelites is shown by the word to be false!



We will not stop here, because I know the Hebrew Israelite doctrines inside out as I have been watching various camps for the past few years. All their teachings, their precepts are not strange.

What I can say, is that one of the first big errors of the Hebrew Israelites is taking verses as they see, without getting the understanding behind it. Specifically, I am referring to the argument they make about the Messiah only coming for or salvation only being for Israel.

For those who have the understanding, this is a wrong interpretation of scripture. Let me explain, beginning with one of their favorite verses which they use as proof that he only came for Yasharal.

Mat 15:24  But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Now to those who only take verses as they say, and not seek deeper understanding, it will appear that this is so. Indded it would seem as if he only came for Israel.

That is made worse by this:

Mat 10:5  These twelve Yahusha sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:
Mat 10:6  But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

But smartly, Matthew 10:5-6 actually contradict their doctrine that he came only for Israel, because we are going to show that before the Messiah left, he instructed them to go to the Gentiles, and after he left they did.

How are we going to prove that? Through the two words for Gentiles: G1672 (Hellen) and G1484 (ethnos).

Anyway, back to the claim, HaMashiach only came for Israel. We must understand the prophecy.

Isa_42:6  I YAHUAH have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;

Isa_49:6  And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.

So he came to restore his people and bring them in covenant with him. Most importantly for this part of the teaching, he came to be a light to the Gentiles. But how?

Through his disciples.

You see, while the Messiah was here, he was the light of the world:

John 9:5  As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.


But when he was gone, he left some lights: his disciples.

Mat_5:14  Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

Hence his instructions:


mark 16-15


So it is obvious then that there is an order, and let’s see the order:

Act 26:20  But shewed first unto them (the Jews) of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles (G1484), that they should repent and turn to Aluah, and do works meet for repentance.

Act_13:46  Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of Aluah should first have been spoken to you (the Jews): but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles (G1484).

Now the Hebrew Israelite would smile here and say, hey, the Gentiles they are speaking about is the northern kingdom (which they identify as Greeks (G1672 Hellens)).

However, as we can see, it is not referring to the Greeks, it is referring to ethnos (G1484) which is referring to any nation that is not Israel!

So it is Judah (and Israel) first!

Why though?

To the law and to the testimony…

Isa 8:20  To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

So, because we are not speaking from a place of darkness, we go to the law and the testimony.

Num_2:9  All that were numbered in the camp of Judah were an hundred thousand and fourscore thousand and six thousand and four hundred, throughout their armies. These shall first set forth.

Num_7:12  And he that offered his offering the first day was Nahshon the son of Amminadab, of the tribe of Judah:

Num_10:14  In the first place went the standard of the camp of the children of Judah according to their armies: and over his host was Nahshon the son of Amminadab.

Jdg_20:18  And the children of Israel arose, and went up to the house of Aluah, and asked counsel of Aluah, and said, Which of us shall go up first to the battle against the children of Benjamin? And YAHUAH said, Judah shall go up first.

Judah must go up first, then the rest of the house of Israel right behind him. The last place (in our covenant) is for the Gentiles.

Act_13:46  Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of Aluah should first have been spoken to you (Israelites, see Mat 15:24): but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles (ethnos).


But why Judah first?

Zec_12:7  YAHUAH also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify themselves against Judah.

Hence when Mashiach says this:

Mat 10:5  These twelve Yahusha sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

Mat 10:6  But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.


He was telling them that Judah and the rest of the lost tribes are first. He went to them all at the same time. He did not go to Judah, then the lost sheep of the house of Israel as the Hebrew Israelites are claiming.

Remember, the lost sheep of the house of Israel also refers to the northern tribes (not Judah alone).

It should get clearer as we go on.



The next erroneous teaching of the Hebrew Israelites is “For God so loved the world.”

Note: We do not use the word God, but for the sake of clarity we use it in some of our posts, but we must disclaim that it is not a title for our Father, but the name of a pagan god of fortune/chance.


They are so confident in this teaching that I have seen them celebrate when people refer to it.

They use wrong “precepts” to prove that the “world” referred to in John 3:16 is actually Israel!

Remember, we had said “world” (G2889 – kosmos) can be used in a narrow sense. But what they did to prove for god so loved the world, is bordering on deception.

If you are lazy and do not seek to prove all things, hold fast that which is good (1 Thessalonians 5:21), then you may just be deceived by this their teaching.

Here is what they did.


They took the meaning of world in John 3:16 (G2889 – kosmos) which is referring to land, and matched it with Isaiah 45:17.

Joh 3:16  For Aluah so loved the world (G2889 – kosmos), that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.


Now here is their match from Isaiah 45:17.


Isa 45:17  But Israel shall be saved in YAHUAH with an everlasting salvation: ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end.


The problem with this? “World without end” refers to time. It comes from the Hebrew words ad and olam which both refer to time. The details are seen in the video below, including the deception they use in the word “whosoever.”

In the image below, we see the usage in John 3:16 being G2889 – kosmos, referring to land and people and the wrong context in Isaiah 45:17, which refers to time.

You cannot have a precept or matching verse using time to prove land and or people. That is plain error, as we said before, bordering on deception.


wrong meaning for world


Watch the video and see the error, which is on the back of hate and unforgiveness, which are not of the most High (Galatians 5:19-21).

I am sad and burdened for my brothers and sisters who are captive in that religion. Even in our awakening, Satan has presented himself and captured our people!

For God So Loved The World? Is The World Only Israel As Hebrew Israelites Claim? John 3:16




We did an entire article on grafting in and this is another thing that proves that neither Jews nor Greeks could not be referring to Greeks alone. Why?

Sha’ul said the Gentiles grafted in were “wild by nature.”

That means they are not of a natural lineage of Jacob!

Rom 11:24  For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree?

Now the Hebrew Israelite would say, yes, those grafted in were the northern kingdom. However, Sha’ul never spoke of the Jews being the natural branches. He spoke of Israel…always!

Rom 11:21  For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.


How did he not spare the natural branches?

Rom 11:20  Well; because of unbelief they (Israel) were broken off, and thou (non-Israelite Gentiles) standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:

Rom 11:25  For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel (not Judah only), until the fulness of the Gentiles (G1484 – ethnos) be come in.


So it was Israel that was blinded through unbelief, so the ethnos (the Gentiles) who are non-Israelites could be graffed in!


Here he tells us in the prelude into his grafting in discourse, that the subject of Romans 11 is Israel, not Judah!

Rom 11:1  I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.


He then went on to tell us that by Israel falling, salvation has come to the ethnos (non-Israelites), which is the whole world/whosoever):

Rom 11:11  I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? Aluah forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy.


By speaking Romans 11:11, he brings us back to the law, and to the testimony (Isa 8:20):

Deu 32:21  They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not Aluah; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.


He was not speaking of Judah only there. He was speaking of the whole nation of Israel (see Deut 32:8-9, Deut 32:15).

Need we go any further? Yes, we must.


ISAIAH 56:6-8

Who are the outcasts of Israel?

Aren’t they every Israelite scattered by the Most High who lost their identity and their heritage (Isa 1:2-3, Jer 17:4)? Isn’t that all 12 tribes (both the southern kingdom of Judah and the northern kingdom of Ephraim)?

Sure it is. So who is this referring to?

Isa 56:8  YAHUAH ALUAH which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him.


Who are the others if not the people from the other nations who are not Israelites? Sure enough, we have proof:

Isa 56:6  Also the sons of the stranger*, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of YAHUAH, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant;

Isa 56:7  Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.

Isa 56:8  YAHUAH ALUAH which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him.

The stranger there, is the heathen from the Hebrew word nekar (bad stranger). This is a non-Israelite, and it is saying if a heathen wants to join to Yasharal, he can keep my Sabbaths and take hold of his covenant and the Most High will gather them as well as his people!

meaning of stranger - bad - nekarNow let us continue to prove all things, hold fast that which is good (1 Thess 5:21).



The Hebrew Israelites also choose to reject a very important yet recurring phrase in the law: “the stranger that sojourneth among you.” How can you be on the streets telling people to keep the law of the Most High and reject such a common, fundamental aspect of the law?

Lev 18:26  Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you:

Notice that the stranger that sojourneth among Yasharal are commanded to keep his statutes and his judgments. Why?


Exo 12:49  One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you.


Have you ever noticed how this is conspicuously missing from the Hebrew Israelite teachings?

But why is this?

Because they would have to accept that a stranger who is not an Israelite can become one with us.


Isa 8:20  To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.


So by rejecting the law, then we are coming from a position of darkness. Why?

The good stranger (Hebrew word ger) that sojourns among us is as one that is born among us.

Exo 12:48  And when a stranger (ger) shall sojourn with thee, and will keep the passover to YAHUAH, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one that is born in the land: for no uncircumcised person shall eat thereof.


Now that stranger that is grafted in among us, joins himself to us will be rewarded with an inheritance in the kingdom with us!

Eze 47:21  So shall ye divide this land unto you according to the tribes of Israel.

Eze 47:22  And it shall come to pass, that ye shall divide it by lot for an inheritance unto you, and to the strangers that sojourn among you, which shall beget children among you: and they shall be unto you as born in the country among the children of Israel; they shall have inheritance with you among the tribes of Israel.

Eze 47:23  And it shall come to pass, that in what tribe the stranger sojourneth, there shall ye give him his inheritance, saith YAHUAH ALUAH.

Why don’t we hear the Hebrew Israelites teaching this? Because it goes against their passion to not let any other nation find mercy from the Most High!

Our people have been through a whole lot at the hand of the Gentiles, but we must know that without forgiveness, we are in trouble. We must not let our centuries of hurt cause us to twist the word of the Most High, now that it has been given back to us in our awakening.

Why? We run the risk of walking in deceit and lies.

Anyway, let’s continue. Now this one shows how merciful our Father is, and how much most of us, indeed, the Hebrew Israelites have misread how merciful he really is.

But it is the truth.


Did you know that the Most High even promised that the evil people who had us in captivity and taught us to worship Baal (the Lord) will be allowed to repent and turn to him?

And that’s not all?

If they turn to him, he will build them in the midst of his people Israel!

Jer 12:14  Thus saith YAHUAH against all mine evil neighbours, that touch the inheritance which I have caused my people Israel to inherit; Behold, I will pluck them out of their land, and pluck out the house of Judah from among them.

Jer 12:15  And it shall come to pass, after that I have plucked them out I will return, and have compassion on them, and will bring them again, every man to his heritage, and every man to his land.

Jer 12:16  And it shall come to pass, if they will diligently learn the ways of my people, to swear by my name, YAHUAH liveth; as they taught my people to swear by Baal; then shall they be built in the midst of my people.

Jer 12:17  But if they will not obey, I will utterly pluck up and destroy that nation, saith YAHUAH.

Now who are some of these evil neighbors?  Let me give you two of them:

Joe 3:19  Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the violence against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land.

Who taught us to swear by the Lord (Baal) Who gave us Christianity where all our people are now worshipping the Lord? Who gave us the bibles with the name “the Lord” for both the Father and the son? Who removed the true names from the book and gave us the names of Baal?


Edom, the evil neighbors who touched the Most High’s inheritance.

Oba 1:13  Thou shouldest not have entered into the gate of my people in the day of their calamity; yea, thou shouldest not have looked on their affliction in the day of their calamity, nor have laid hands on their substance in the day of their calamity;




So what does this mean?

Jer 12:16  And it shall come to pass, if they will diligently learn the ways of my people, to swear by my name, YAHUAH liveth; as they taught my people to swear by Baal; then shall they be built in the midst of my people.

If even the Edomites turn and repent, cleave to his people, sojourn among them, leave their old evil ways, are truly grafted in among them, then they shall be built among his people.

Servants though they will be (Amos 9:11-12), they still will be among his people in the kingdom! YAHUAH is truly merciful, not willing that ANY MAN, even the Edomites perish. That is why Jonah said this:


Jon 4:1  But it displeased Jonah exceedingly, and he was very angry.

Jon 4:2  And he prayed unto YAHUAH, and said, I pray thee, O YAHUAH, was not this my saying, when I was yet in my country? Therefore I fled before unto Tarshish: for I knew that thou art a gracious Aluah, and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repentest thee of the evil.


Jonah said it because the Assyrians were their hated enemies, just as the Edomites are to some of our people today. Jonah preferred to die rather than to see his enemies receive mercy. That is why our brothers preach that our enemies cannot receive mercy. They want to lock them out, in the same ruach of Jonah.

Now we did a podcast some time ago entitled “Can Edomites Be Saved.” Take a listen for more detail on this. See also Can Edomites Be Saved article on Just a Word Radio’s website.

We should note that we are not Edomite lovers. They are the border of wickedness and continue to lead the wickedness in this world.

But we are called to not hate them as a people simply because they are Edomites (Deut 23:7). Additionally, whomever the Most High shows mercy and they cleave to/become one with us, will be sown among us (Jer 12:16), so we have to accept them as one of us (Exo 12:48).

We are called to the truth (John 14:6), not to religion.




Now here is another that they do not teach: a mixed multitude left Egypt and a mixed multitude entered the land. Why do I emphasize both leaving and entering? Because when this happened:

Exo_12:38  And a mixed multitude went up also with them; and flocks, and herds, even very much cattle.


Then some say all the mixed multitude were wiped out when the children of Israel were wiped out after the 40 years. However, their children entered the land:

Deu 29:1  These are the words of the covenant, which YAHUAH commanded Moses to make with the children of Israel in the land of Moab, beside the covenant which he made with them in Horeb.

Deu 29:10  Ye stand this day all of you before YAHUAH your Aluah; your captains of your tribes, your elders, and your officers, with all the men of Israel,

Deu 29:11  Your little ones, your wives, and thy stranger that is in thy camp, from the hewer of thy wood unto the drawer of thy water:


See that? The stranger that sojourned among them entered the promised land and entered into covenant with the Most High. Covenant with the Most High? But I thought only Israelites could go into covenant with the Most High!

Deu 29:12  That thou shouldest enter into covenant with YAHUAH thy Aluah, and into his oath, which YAHUAH thy Aluah maketh with thee this day:

Deu 29:13  That he may establish thee to day for a people unto himself, and that he may be unto thee an Aluah, as he hath said unto thee, and as he hath sworn unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.

On that day, he made his covenant open to all people. How do we know that?

Deu 29:14  Neither with you only do I make this covenant and this oath;

Deu 29:15  But with him that standeth here with us this day before YAHUAH our Aluah, and also with him that is not here with us this day:

The covenant he made is with whomever was there forever, with their descendants forever. So this pertained to every nation that was there at the time Moses was speaking in Deuteronomy 29:

Deu 29:29  The secret things belong unto YAHUAH our Aluah: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.

That was the day he made the covenant with my family: my fathers, so my family was sent in captivity in the Americas. But for those nations who were not present?

Deu 29:14  Neither with you (the Israelites) only do I make this covenant and this oath;

Deu 29:15  But with him that standeth here with us this day (the strangers/mixed multitude) before YAHUAHour Aluah, and also with him that is not here with us this day (Gentiles from other nations/whosoever):

It must be evident by this that neither Jew nor Greek actually meant neither Jew nor Gentile, which actually meant it as it says in Torah, the stranger that sojourns among you shall be as one born among you and shall have an inheritance with you.

But we cannot stop there. There’s more.



The word ethnos powerfully reveals what was meant by neither Jew nor Greek, by showing us that salvation is not only to Israelites. Let’s look at its meaning again.


neither jew nor greek explained

Ethnos refers to a Gentile, nation, heathen: those who are not Israelites. So let’s look at it being used to show up the fallacy of only Israelites can be saved:



HaMashiach actually gave instructions using the word ethnos:

Act 9:15  But the Master said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles (G1481 – ethnos) and kings, and the children of Israel (see Mat 15:24):


He was referring to the Apostle Sha’ul, who they call Paul. And we know that Sha’ul fulfilled this, evidenced by this statement:

Act_13:46  Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of Aluah should first have been spoken to you (Israelites, see Mat 15:24): but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles (ethnos).

Sha’ul’s ministry was to the Israelites as well as the other nations, not only to Israelites.



Mat 12:21  And in his name shall the Gentiles (ethnos) trust.

This was referring to the prophecy in Isaiah 42:

Isa_42:1  Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.

It shows that the same Gentiles referred to in Isaiah 42:1 (goy), the heathen nations (non-Israelites) are the same Gentiles referred to in Matthew 12:21 (ethnos).



Mat 10:5  These twelve Yahusha sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles (ethnos), and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

Mat 10:6  But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Do not go into the way of the heathen nations, but go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. That is because as we said before, there is an order.

As we said before, Matthew 10:6 is very important also as it shows us that when he went to Judah, he went to the lost sheep of the house of Israel, which included all 12 tribes!

Hence when Messiah left this earth, and Sha’ul went to the Gentiles, they were not only the 10 northern tribes, as the Mashiach’s message was already gone to Israelites. They were the heathen nations that were not Israelites.

Now why go not in the way of the Samaritans? The Samaritans were descendants of Gentiles who were brought to Israel when the Assyrians brought the northern kingdom into captivity. They are not Ephraimites as the Hebrew Israelites are deceptively speaking:

2Ki 17:24  And the king of Assyria brought men from Babylon, and from Cuthah, and from Ava, and from Hamath, and from Sepharvaim, and placed them in the cities of Samaria instead of the children of Israel: and they possessed Samaria, and dwelt in the cities thereof.


So the Samaritans were not Israelites as they are claiming even today. that is why HaMashiach could say to the woman:

Joh 4:22  Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.

Joh 4:27  And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest thou with her?


And why the disciples could be shocked to see HaMashiach speaking to her, because she was a Gentile, not of the lost sheep of the house of Israel, as the Messiah actually came for those (Mat 15:24)



Now Romans 9:30-31 is also very revealing as it contrasts the Israelites with Gentiles. The term Israelites include all 12 tribes, not just the house of Judah. In contrasting them with the term Gentiles, it shows that Gentiles refers to non-Israelites.

Here is salvation for all nations, not just Israelites:

Rom 9:30  What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, which followed not after righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith.

Rom 9:31  But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness.


This brings us right back to this parable:

Mat 8:5  And when Yahusha was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him,

Mat 8:6  And saying, Master, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.

Mat 8:7  And Yahusha saith unto him, I will come and heal him.

Mat 8:8  The centurion answered and said, Master, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.

Mat 8:9  For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.

Mat 8:10  When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.

Mat 8:11  And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.

Mat 8:12  But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Mat 8:13  And Yahusha said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.


Those coming from the east and the west are the gentiles while the children of the kingdom are Israelites. Very easy to see the mistake of the Hebrew Israelites, but they are not able to see because they are in a religion.

Take a look at the main reason why they cannot see the errors.

The only remedy is for them to tear themselves away from the religion. Anyway, let us continue.



Now if there is no salvation for the Gentiles, how could the Ruach be poured out on the Gentiles?

Act 10:45  And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles (ethnos) also was poured out the gift of Ruach HaQadosh.


First of all, why would they be astonished?

If these Gentiles were their relatives, the northern kingdom Israelites, they, knowing the Torah and the prophets, would not even be surprised as they would know it is fulfillment of prophecy to regather his people.

However they were shocked. Why?

These people were non-Israelites! Gentiles: ethnos. Heathens, pagans, strangers!



Now Gentiles also received the word of Aluah! Not only did they receive the Ruach, but also the word is recorded as having been given to them.

Act 11:1  And the apostles and brethren that were in Judaea heard that the Gentiles had also received the word of Aluah.

Again Gentiles is ethnos, the heathens, pagans, non-Israelites.



Now this one is interesting. Remember our topic, we are looking at the meaning of neither Jew nor Greek. The Hebrew Israelites like to use Acts 5:31 to say repentance and forgiveness of sins was only given to Israel:

Act 5:31  Him hath Aluah exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.


However, as we have been showing, Israel gets everything first, and then comes the Gentiles:

Act 11:18  When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified Aluah, saying, Then hath Aluah also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life.

So if Gentiles are granted repentance unto eternal life, how can Israelites only be saved? How can neither Jew nor Greeks be saying only Israelites can repent unto eternal life?



So to put the icing on the cake, there is no higher level we can go, than when we show that Gentiles are granted favor (grace): repentance unto eternal life, as Israelites are.

Act 13:46  Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of Aluah should first have been spoken to you (the lost sheep of the house of Israel: see Mat 15:24, Mat 10:5-6, Acts 9:15): but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles (ethnos: heathens/pagans/non-Israelites).

Act 13:47  For so hath YAHUAH commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.

Act 13:48  And when the Gentiles (ethnos: heathens/pagans/non-Israelites) heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.


See that?! There is nothing more we need to say.



We could go on and on, but I believe it should now be crystal clear that the Bible does not speak about Israelites only being saved. Gentiles will also be saved, even unto eternal life as our people. But here are some more instances (there are more) that we have shared below to help you in your studies:

  •  Acts 14:27, Acts 18:6 Door of faith opened to the Gentiles
  • Acts 15:3 Conversion of the Gentiles brought great joy to the Israelites
  • Acts 15:12 Miracles and wonders wrought among the gentiles
  • Acts 15:14, Rom 9:24 Aluah took of the Gentiles a people for his name
  • Act_15:17 Yahuah’s name called upon the Gentiles
  • Act_15:19 Gentiles turned to Aluah
  • Acts 28:23-29 Salvation to the Gentiles
  • Rom 3:29 the Aluah of the Jews and the Gentiles


Don’t believe us? Here is another brother who convincingly explains the question “Is Salvation Only For Israel?”

Is Salvation ONLY for Israel?



Neither Jew nor Greek, proving that Israelites only can be saved is the heart and soul of the Hebrew Israelite belief. Without it, so many other doctrines fall apart.

If you have observed the Hebrew Israelites as long as I have, it should be obvious that the believers openly manifests unforgiveness, hatred, pride, deceptions and guile in delivering their messages. These of course, according to the scriptures, are not of the Most High.

Indeed, the Most High did not call us into religion, he called us to follow the way, the one way of scripture. That is the way we follow here at Just a Word. We are Hebrews, we are Israelites, but we are not Hebrew Israelites, as that is a made up phrase which is connected with a false religion.

Hence the followers of the way can easily debunk the Hebrew Israelite religion, but a Christian cannot. Why? Hebrew Israelites have some truth, but they have misused the word to defend their own desired conclusion.

So the Christian is right, but wrong.

Right that it is open to all but wrong in that they have no idea what it means to be grafted in. They have no idea that Jesus Christ is a false Messiah. They have no idea what neither Jew nor Greek, or neither Jew not Gentile actually means. For that, please go to what it really means to be grafted in.



It has been our experience here at Just a Word, that if we are using the word to fit into our own preconceived doctrines, then we are going to err.

2 Peter1:20  Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

But the Hebrew Israelite will tell you that he uses precept upon precept according to Isaiah 28:9-10. However, we showed the danger of using precepts without understanding in our teaching last Shabbat. The videos are shown below at the end of this post.



So the Gentile wants us to forget about all the atrocities the committed against the children of Israel. They want us to forget who the Israelites are.

Worse, they not only want to continue enjoying the blessings of this age, but they also want to reign with Messiah in the age to come.

Hence their version of neither Jew nor Greek, or as they like to say: neither Jew nor Gentile, meaning their slate is wiped clean and they will get to “have their cake and eat it too.”

They will get to have done all sorts of atrocities for centuries, benefit from it, and still get to be equal with us in the kingdom.  Sorry, but those Gentiles whose fathers partook of our oppression and still benefit from the riches and privileges handed down today?

Rev 13:10  He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

Isa 14:21  Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities.

Oppress the children of Israel, reject them, hide them, and then be assured of a place in the kingdom? It will never happen. Just go to our teaching on what it means to be grafted in.



The Hebrew Israelite on the other hand want revenge. Our people have been oppressed, persecuted, ridiculed, held down, killed, maimed, rejected, scourged, enslaved and more for hundreds of years.

“We want justice!”

Thus they do not want to even harbor the thought that these people who oppressed us will have any chance of salvation. They know we are the Israelites in scripture because they have studied Deuteronomy 28 and matched up our lives with it.

No other people match the curses as we do.

Hence, these Gentiles have to pay and they cannot get salvation. That is the common thought process.

The HI (Hebrew Israelites) have therefore gone to a greater extent than Jonah. Instead of fleeing from the task of bringing the word to the Gentiles, they blatantly stand up and teach that the Gentiles have no hope.

As we said, if we are seeking our own from scripture, we will be deceived.

Hence we at Just a Word being the same people as the Hebrew Israelites, but we know there is no such term as Hebrew Israelites as we showed in a previous post.

Both the term Hebrew and Israelite are used interchangeably for the same people as today, no other nation other than the children of Israel are Hebrews. If you want to understand this, please check out this post.



The importance of this is that being a Hebrew Israelite will not save you. By favor (grace) are we saved through emunah (faith). This converts our hearts away from pride, hatred and all the sinful acts and desires. When truly converted, one will be walking in the fruit of the Ruach:

Gal 5:22-23  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Now let us be honest: do you see the Hebrew Israelites walking in the fruit of the Ruach?

Let us be really honest.

Or are they walking more in one or more of these works of the flesh: hatred, variance, emulations, wrath and strife?

By the way, we left one out, and that is reviling, that absolutely characterizes the typical public behavior of the Hebrew Israelites.

See our post on No Reviler Shall Inherit The Kingdom to get a better understanding of reviling.

Remember, the word says those who walk in the works of the flesh cannot enter the kingdom (Gal 5:19-21), and no reviler shall inherit the kingdom (1 Cor 6:10).

We cannot be justified by the law.

Neither Jew nor Greek? Salvation is not only for Israel. It is salvation to Israel first, then the Gentiles. Salvation is for all.

Isa 11:12  And he shall set up an ensign for the nations (Gentiles: non-Israelites / the whole world), and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel (House of Israel/Ephraim – 10 northern tribes), and gather together the dispersed of Judah (house of Judah – southern tribes) from the four corners of the earth.


Shalum. Delivered in love.
