WHO IS A JEW?


It is my understanding that the policy of the nation of Israel is that if a mother is a Jew and the father is a non-Jew, then the child is a Jew.  If the mother is a non-Jew and the father is a Jew, then the child is a non-Jew.  

Truth is, if the father is a Jew, then the child is a Jew - even if the mother is a non-Jew.  If the Father is not a Jew, then the child is not a Jew, even if the mother is a Jew.

Genesis 41:45   And Pharaoh called Joseph's name Zaphnathpaaneah and he gave him to wife Asenath, the daughter of Potipherah priest of On ....

Genesis 46:20  And unto Joseph in the land of Egypt were born Manasseh and Ephraim, whose mother is Asenath ....

Asenath, a non-Jew woman, yet her two sons with Joseph are named with the tribes of Israel because it is the father, not the mother, that confers Jew or non-Jew heritage upon his offspring. 

Leviticus 24:10-16   The son of an Israelite woman whose father was an Egyptian [a non-Jew] went out among the children of Israel and this son of the Israelite woman and a man of Israel strove together in the camp and the Israelite woman's son blasphemed the name of the Lord ....

Not two men of Israel strove together, but rather a man of Israel and a son of a Jewish woman (and non-Jew father, an Egyptian).   Joseph had two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, and they were born to a non-Jew woman, but are counted among the tribes of Israel because regardless of whether a non-Jewish or Jewish woman bears the child of a Jewish man, the child is Jewish.  If a Jewish woman bears the child of a non-Jewish man, then the child is not a Jew.    

Abraham is non-Jewish, same with Issac.  God named Jacob Israel (Genesis 35:10) and Israel is the first Jew and his twelve sons are Jews and all who are descended from the twelve sons of Jacob, and they alone, are the Jewish people.  See tab Jew Cult of Christianity.
