Hebrew National Kosher Status

Hot Dog: For those of you keeping kosher or buying kosher products, note that Hebrew National processed meat products are now being certified by a rabbi more widely trusted in the observant Jewish community and carry the Triangle-K hechser (stamp of approval). This is good news because the Hebrew National brand is widely distributed and often available in regular supermarkets. Hebrew National products are "regular" kosher rather than "glatt" kosher, which is a loftier designation given when the kosher status of the product was never in doubt. However, this should not be an issue for people new to keeping kosher. Please email me your comments. For more info, see Schueller House.


"Last Supper" Timetable

Some scholars doubt that what Christians call the "Last Supper" was a seder. Here is the Netzarim timetable for what happened to Ribi Yehoshua.
SEDER: Nisan 15, Yom Khamishi or the fifth day of the week (but Wednesday evening on the secular calendar before midnight). The arrest happened after the seder.
TRIALS, TORTURE, ETC. Nisan 16-19, all during the next week.
EXECUTION AND BURIAL: Nisan 20 (the third day of the following week or Tuesday on the secular calendar). Execution began in the AM, burial occured before sundown, as was necessary to accomodate Jewish law, the next day being the seventh day of Pesach and a shabbaton. (Christians interpreted the Preparation Day and the Sabbath as a reference to the seventh day of the week. This is the source of a timetable mistake.) All the stuff that was supposed to have happened to Ribi Yehoshua could not have happened overnight on a yom tov, even allowing for the fishiness of the Temple kohanim and Herod.
DISCOVERY OF THE MISSING BODY: Nisan 25, motzei shabbat or after dark on what would be Saturday evening on the secular calendar. Christians interpreted reference to twilight as "dawn" in the morning. More naturally, women went to the tomb at first chance after shabbat ended with spices etc. So whatever happened to account for a missing body happened on shabbat.
This is the only timetable that seems to make sense viz. Jewish law and dates the year. The Christian timetable was designed to accommodate the substitution of Sunday for shabbat and makes little logical sense. Much more information in the Netzarim Reconstruction of Matiytyahu. See Schueller House.


Don't Conceal!

Conversion without integrity: Thinking of pursuing conversion to Judaism while concealing your belief in Yehoshua as Mashiakh? Don't do it. This is the kind of deception that can get your conversion nullified. That's not the worst of it. While I (as a Netzarim geir toshav) do not believe that observant Jews need to share my beliefs about the identity of the mashiakh, I am well aware that concealing or denying what I understand to be true can have no good consequences for my own soul. Be honest. From Schueller House.
