    "A former Guantanamo Bay inmate is among six people from an alleged jihadi recruiting network linked to the Islamic State group who were detained on Tuesday, a French judicial source said.

    Among the suspects arrested was Sabir Mahfouz Lahmar, who was freed from the U.S. detention center in Cuba in 2009 after France agreed to accept him, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the case."

Trump struck a blow against global Marxism, by stopping what would have been Paris Accord looting of our Treasury through their "Green Fund", to line the pockets of the owners of the environmental movement, while transferring the remnant to communist and socialist failed states as well as our Islamic enemies, who have destroyed their own countries wealth by plundering their productive citizens.

Any surprise that Hollywood buffoons and so many Marxist Globalist elites around the world went nuts, after Trump put a little pause in their plans to further plunder our Treasury toward global governance, by pulling out of the Paris Accord?

We need to quit being the slave of our enemies and pull out of the United Nations as well and kick the U.N. out of the U.S.

The Complete Jewish Study Bible
Claims to be from the "original Greek"
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Messianic_Bible_translations#Complete_Jewish_Bible_.28CJB.29

So the question begs, which Greek?
Translated from the 1975 3rd edition of the UBS Greek.
Which as all pop-bible versions is of course from the 19th century Westcott and Hort Greek translation.

And on all of the "New Age Bible Versions" from the same Greek translation:
http://www.beholdthebeast.com/new_age_bible_versions.htm

In the light of "New Age Bible Versions" and prophetic scripture, is it a surprise that in 1998 a Jew named Dr. David H. Stern - who attended a graduate course at the University of Judaism (now the American Jewish University), taught the first course in 'Judaism and Christianity' at Fuller Theological Seminary and at UCLA - published a pop-version of the New Testament? Stern lives in Jerusalem and, although a wheelchair user, is active in Israel's Messianic Jewish community.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_H._Stern

I frequently point out that pop-Bibles are driven by doctrine and/or profits, and this would seem to be no exception, considering that one of Dr. Stern's other titles is "Messianic Jewish Manifesto"?
He certainly would not be alone, as many false doctrines and cults invaded the church during the 19th and 20th centuries - just as prophesied.

2 Timothy 4:3-4 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4  And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

It would seem there were no Messianic Jews attempting to Judaize Christians prior to the 19th century. The same century that the rest of the modern cults were born.

I have not studied this but was directed to a Wikipedia article in my early search on the subject, so this subject is incomplete and posted for comments by some more educated with the history of this. It's my impression that Jews that came to Christ were Christians and would have called themselves such, or perhaps make a distinction by calling themselves Jewish Christians. The pastor at a Calvary Chapel I attended asked those in the congregation who were Jews to raise their hands, and I was stunned by the number of Jews among us.

According to the Wikipedia article it would seem that prior to the 19th century there was no desire of Jewish Christians to embrace old covenant law, and efforts went more toward Bible translation:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Messianic_Judaism#Pre-19th_century

Then during the 19th century (wouldn't you know it!):
"In Eastern Europe, Joseph Rabinowitz established a Hebrew Christian mission and congregation called "Israelites of the New Covenant" in Kishinev, Ukraine in 1884.[45][46][47][48][49][50] Rabinowitz was supported from overseas by the Christian Hebraist Franz Delitzsch, translator of the first modern Hebrew translation of the New Testament.[51] In 1865, Rabinowitz created a sample order of worship for Sabbath morning service based on a mixture of Jewish and Christian elements. Mark John Levy pressed the Church of England to allow members to embrace Jewish customs.[47]

In the United States, a congregation of Jewish converts to Christianity was established in New York City in 1885.[52] In the 1890s, immigrant Jewish converts to Christianity worshiped at the Methodist "Hope of Israel" mission on New York’s Lower East Side while retaining some Jewish rites and customs.[53] In 1895, the 9th edition of Hope of Israel's Our Hope magazine carried the subtitle "A Monthly Devoted to the Study of Prophecy and to Messianic Judaism", the first use of the term "Messianic Judaism".[54][55] Hope of Israel was controversial; other missionary groups accused its members of being Judaizers, and one of the two editors of Our Hope magazine, Arno C. Gaebelein, eventually repudiated his views and, as a result, was able to become a leader in the mainstream Christian evangelical movement.[54]"
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Messianic_Judaism#Pre-19th_century

"The modern day Messianic Jewish movement is considered by many to have begun in the United States in the 1960s and maybe even more specifically in 1967.[60][61][62][63]"
"The Six-Day war (The Arab-Israeli war of June 5 to June 10, 1967) brought Jerusalem back under Jewish control.[65][better source needed] This was seen as a fulfillment of Jesus’ prophecy: “Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.”(Luke 21:24 TLV)[66][67][68][69]"

"Transformation to a Jewish Identity and Culture

Prior to this time Jewish believers, had in most cases, assimilated into gentile Christianity, losing their Jewish identity and not passing on their Jewish heritage to their children. Now there seemed to be a greater desire and urgency among the young believers to maintain not only their individual Jewish identity[75] but to celebrate their Jewish traditions and culture with their families and Jewish friends.[76] Understanding Jesus within his historical Jewish context was of great importance as well as seeing Jesus within modern day Judaism especially in the observance of the Shabbat and the celebration of the festivals.[77] This conflict of identity as a Hebrew-Christian and passion for their Jewish identity was summed up by Paul Liberman where he writes about the founding of Beth Messiah Congregation.

    'Almost as soon as Beth Messiah began to hold meetings on May 18, 1973, I realized I would be required to “explain” our purpose to the outside Jewish community. I needed to be able to honestly profess that we were not an appendage, subsidiary, affiliate, or offshoot of any Christian (Gentile) denomination or ministry. We were a Jewish congregation and always would be. We absolutely were not a “church.” For this reason, if we identified as, “Beth Messiah, a Messianic Synagogue” immediately followed by, “affiliated with the Hebrew Christian Alliance of America,” it would seem an inherent contradiction in our stated goal. How could you have a “Christian synagogue?” … If this fledgling thing –Beth Messiah—was to have a future, it couldn’t be under the banner—Hebrew Christian Alliance?”[78]'

This idea of a Jewish identity and more specifically a Messianic Jewish identity was the main purpose of the effort to change the name of the Hebrew Christian Alliance of America (HCAA) to Messianic Jewish Alliance of America (MJAA).[79][80][78] Dan Juster comments on this by saying that “Hebrew Christianity, at times, saw Jewishness as merely an ethnic identity, whereas Messianic Judaism saw its Jewish life and identity as a continued call of God.”[81] David Rausch further explains that “(t)he name change, however, signified far more than a semantical expression—it represented an evolution in the thought processes and religious and philosophical outlook toward a more fervent expression of Jewish identity.”[82]"

Besides Jesuit Luis Alcazar - the actual father of modern preterism through his counter-reformation effort - one of the fathers of modern preterism may be Samuel Lee who resurrected Eusebius' writings. If not the father of modern preterism, he's certainly at least a hero of one preterist website:
http://www.preteristarchive.com/StudyArchive/l/lee-samuel.html

"EVER since his translation of Eusebius's 'Theophania,' my father's mind had been more or less occupied on the subject of Prophecy, and he became convinced that the views which he entertained, known as the Preterist, were those held by the early Church. The subject was one of absorbing interest to him during the few last years of his life, and as a child I can remember the animated conversations between him and my mother on Prophecy in their walks about our beautiful garden, or in the leisure of meal times, she holding the more general and popular opinions of the restoration of the Jews to their own land, etc. "

Which I suppose his foray into preterism was excusable for someone that lived from the 18th to mid-19th centuries, when the restoration of Jews to their/our land was still in its infancy. However the debate should certainly be over today, in the light of the fulfilled prophecies of Jews being restored to power in Israel and then Jerusalem, the fulfillment of which prophecies is even confirmed mathematically, through hindsight:
