Skip to comments.'Renew animal sacrifices on Mount' says rabbi

Animal sacrifices should be renewed on the Temple Mount, a member of the radical Sanhedrin organization told Ynetnews.
In ancient Israel and Judea, the Sanhedrin served as the highest court in the land, and was made up of 71 top judges. Now, a group of îåãòä
fringe rabbis say they have reformed the group, although the organization has received no recognition from Israel's official religious authorities.
"In the Torah there are around 200 commandments dealing with animal sacrifices," said Rabbi Dov Stein, of the Sanhedrin organization. "The Torah of Israel demands animal sacrifices. When the people of Israel were in the Diaspora, it couldnt be done. But now, there is the supreme institution, the Sanhedrin, made up of experts, and it can be done. The new Sanhedrin, like the old, will educate the people of Israel on how to keep and safeguard the Torah."

I hope they use plenty of pigs...
If this sick psychopath lusts for blood so much, why doesn't he go mutilate himself. Or maybe slice off his own head, or offer himself to a Jihadist or whatever.
Maybe you should read the bible and why Jesus is considered the Passover Lamb
This has some pretty profound geopolitical implications, and it is the the first time that I've heard such a public call for it.
Closer and closer
Any religious text, and I don't care what, that demands sacrifice (animal/ human/ alien..) to me is not the word of God. Period.
If you are a Christian you have just broken the 2nd commandment.
Is that the outfit associated with Root and Branch? If so, they're very controversial. Are they the ones who Orthodox rabbis are calling the "Insanehedrin?"
The Word of God says...Without blood there is no sacrifice. In the old testament they sacrificed animals as an atonement for sins...but also as a foretelling of the sacrifice Christ would make on the cross for our sins ( the animals had to be perfect without spot or blemish...just as Christ is perfect)...animal sacrifice was imperfect..it needed to be done over and over..but once Jesus came and became the sacrifice for us...animal sacrifice was no longer needed. Jesus did it all....
The Jews wanting to reinstate animal sacrifice to me is just another step to the final days.
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. - Romans 5:8
It's either Him or you. Take your pick.
What are you talking about ?
Although it's called a "sacrifice" (at least in English) the Passover sacrifice is really just a big BBQ. The meat wasn't wasted -- it was all eaten After the lambs were slaughtered, they were roasted up and everyone ate. It was no more or less barbaric than killing or eating meat any time of the year. Rather than calling it a "sacrifice," it would be more accurate to call it "ceremonial BBQing."
What, I ask you, is the difference between a lamb being killed on a farm somewhere and you eating it for dinner, and a lamb being killed on the Temple Mount and you eating it with your family that night?
Incidentally, it is for this reason that the Christian belief that Jesus was a "Passover lamb who saves from sin" displays an incredible ignorance of the Torah and Judaism. The Passover ceremonial BBQ had nothing to do with "saving" from sin. It was a ceremony done for and in remembrance of the Exodus from Egypt, when the Jews slaughtered lambs to mark their homes, allowing the Angel of Death to passover them.
In fact, in the entire Bible, the only sins that any sacrfices could redeem were unintentional sins.
Christ died for you and taken the punishment for your sins(and mine). You can accept this or reject Him and pay your own punishment(eternal death - separation from God).
"Any religious text, and I don't care what, that demands sacrifice (animal/ human/ alien..) to me is not the word of God. Period."
I guess you must throw out the entire bible, eh?
Christianity has as it's basis the blood sacrifice of Jesus (unbeknownst to His executioners at the time...) . Biblical religion is clear, "without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sin." (Hebrews 9:22)
If you want to deny the Bible is God's Word, even though you have no ground to do so--other than your own squeamishness--go ahead...as from Adam and Eve, to the end of the world in Revelation, anyone saved is saved by "substitutionary atonement" which involves blood sacrifice.
Fortunately for us today, since Jesus Christ, no more blood sacrifices are necessary, since Christ fulfilled that requirement completely.
However, please don't call Jews who, not knowing Jesus, just want to do what the Torah requires, bad names...that's really called anti-Semitism (besides being anti-biblical and anti-Christian).
I'm fully behind them. I hope that it happens soon.
It's 2007 and some barbaric psychopath wants to appease the Sky God by slaughtering a living creature.
