The Importance of Truth in the Wisdom Literature of the Tanakh and its Connection to The Gospel of John

"And you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free." -John 8:32

When you read all of the quotes below which are taken from the books of Psalms and Proverbs, you will begin to understand why the so-called Jews are not the chosen people. These two books provide ethical instruction on what is the most important element for the Jews from the New Covenant that is provided in the book of Jeremiah. One will see the similarities to the Gospel of John.

Jesus is a new David and Solomon. The Jews of today are of the Pharisees, which are connected to the Talmud. See here and here for more about the Talmud. (Go here to see a bunch of videos and articles about the Talmud, be sure to scroll down and go through all of the articles and videos.) Jewish identity comes from the Talmud, not the Bible.
