There are two Talmuds. The one most available for public consumption to "gentiles" is the Jerusalem Talmud. The REAL Talmud is the Babylonian Talmud.

No, Christianity and the religion of the Israelites are God's Law.
Mat 15:3 But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?
Mat 15:4 For God commanded, saying, Honor thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.
Mat 15:5 But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;
Mat 15:6 And honor not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.
Mat 15:7 Ye hypocrites, well did Isaiah prophesy of you, saying,
Mat 15:8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoreth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
Mat 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
Nobody really expects a jew or a "liberal" to ever comprehend the difference, but most of the 2 billion Christians in the world, a third of the world population, understand it precisely.
We know you "liberals" never will.

It's impossible that jews were ever more than 0.25% of the population, just as they are today. If there were a million jews in Rome 2,000 years ago, there would now be tens of billions of jews today. There are only 15 million.
Most of the people in Judaea were Isrealites, not jews.
All jews in Judaea at the time were members of one of three sects--Pharisees, Sadducees, or Essenes.
Joh 18:19 The high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his doctrine.
Joh 18:20 Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing.
Joh 18:21 Why askest thou me? ask them which heard me, what I have said unto them: behold, they know what I said.
Joh 18:22 And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers which stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, Answerest thou the high priest so?
Joh 18:23 Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why smitest thou me?
Joh 18:24 Now Annas had sent him bound unto Caiaphas the high priest.
These were the jews striking Jesus, not His fellow Israelites.

Jesus is the Son of God.
Israelite law required Joseph to "put her away privately" Matthew 1:19 had she conceived a child in adultery. The only reason that didn't happen is Matthew 1:20 "But when he was giving thought to these things, an angel of the Lord came to him in a dream, saying, Joseph, son of David, have no fear of taking Mary as your wife; because that which is in her body is of the Holy Spirit."
Matthew 1:25 "And he had no connection with her till she had given birth to a son; and he gave him the name Jesus."
It's clear as a bell from the Holy Bible that they didn't need DNA studies to know exactly what Christ's biological ancestry is, but you can look that up yourself.

The only religious law that applies to jews is in the Talmud, which is completely contrary to the Israelites' Old Testament.
It's impossible for both to apply.

a.. Is this why the Talmud prescribes the death penalty for anyone who discusses the contents of the Talmud?:
a.. Sanhedrin (59a) -- `Prying into Jews' "Law" to get death penalty
b.. Is this why the Talmud instructs jews not to save a Christian's life:
a.. Hilkkoth Akum (X,1) -- Do not save Christians in danger of death.
c.. Is this why jews who are baptized are subject to the death penalty?:
a.. Hilkhoth Akum(X,2) -- Baptized Jews are to be put to death
d.. Is this why Carl Pearlston [read: Pearlstein] insists that:
a.. "Christians prefer sex with cows"? http://christianparty.net/pearlston.htm
Is this what you call "educate jews"?
Is this what you claim hasn't "deceived anyone"?
Are you a jew? Or were you deceived?
