WATCH: Well-Known Israeli Rabbi Publicly Entices to MURDER Two Israeli Messianic Jewish Evangelists

An Orthodox Rabbi is seen in a video threatening to murder Eitan Bar and Moti Vaknin of One For Israel. The Rabbi cites Maimonides and his commentary on the Mishnah: “Whoever incites to idolatry, his punishment is death! And whoever follows him also deserves death!”

Is the Rabbi really suggesting that all Messianic Jews in Israel, and the diaspora for that matter, be put to death, because we ALL follow Messiah Yeshua? In a world of violent religious extremism, do the Jewish people really want to throw their hat in the ring with Orthodox extremists who want to kill all those who disagree with their theology? We hope and pray that this is not the case, and that other leaders within the Orthodox community would rebuke Rabbi Yosef Mizrachi’s comments.

Contrast those comments with the reply of Eitan and Moti to Rabbi Mizrachi: “We Still love you, forgive your incitement, and refuse to hate you back, even though we absolutely don’t agree with your message.”

That is the message from Messianic Jews – a message of love – that Yeshua preached: “Love your enemies and do good to those who hate you.”
