Brother, it is YOU who is separating Judeans from Jews not anyone else. I gave you 4-5 definitions from dictionary of the English language. But you still carry your way. No matter, saying wrong things over and over will not make them right. If that was the case Jehovah's Witness would long ago become those who hold the truth.
I never said that St. Peter was not Galilean. I said that Christ was Judean. He was born in Judea and His earthly father and his betrothed who is truly Mother of God and God bearer Miriam were both of Judean Tribe.
Now, what you say:
Matthew 2, 23.- It clearly says that HE CAME into Nazareth and settled there, which means he (St. Joseph) went into Nazareth because of fear of Archelaus (Mt 2, 22); and further this is AFTER the Egypt. Using your logic, is Jesus Egyptian? Mt. 2,23. Says that HE WILL BE CALLED NAZAREAN. But that does not mean that HE WAS one. The prophets just stated that He will be Called so, they did not say THAT HE WAS NAZAREAN. This is assumption. He was clearly not Nazarean, his family just setled there by the grace and in wisdom of God. Also those people that did call Christ Nazarean are not some I would be a friend with (except of course St. Nathaniel)
You said: Why does Pilate call him Galilean?
St. Luke 23, 5-7. Pilate did not call him Galielan, he asked if He was Galilean because people were saying that He was making trouble in all parts of the land (Judea) and in Galilee. So when Pilate heard the word Galilee he asked: IS THIS MAN A GALILEAN? (if your logic is right than Pilate is Judean because in Jn 18, 35 he is asking same type of question for himself). And it goes to say that Pilate found out that He is from Irod's parts he sent Him to Irod. Found out how? We know that Christ did not say it. The ONLY thing He said to Pilate (in Luke) was YOU SAID as an answer on Pilates question if He was KING OF JUDEANS!. So who told Pilate that He was Galilean? Lord said nothing to Irod eother (23, 9.). So where did this information that Christ was Galilean came from? I will come back to this later.
Now if we compare other reports:
St. Matthew is the same. 27, 11. Pilate ask Him if He was the King of Judeans, and He said YOU SAYS SO. And after that He said nothing.
St. Mark.15, 2. Same story.
St. John brings a bit bigger story:
John ch. 18 and 19:
Jesus Before Pilate
28Then the Judeans (the english text - NIV - renders all words here JEWS, I changed them into Judeans as is in Serbian Version and so you would not cry outrage, funny that everyone but you thinks that Jews and Judeans are without distinction
) led Jesus from Caiaphas to the palace of the Roman governor. By now it was early morning, and to avoid ceremonial uncleanness the Judeans did not enter the palace; they wanted to be able to eat the Passover. 29So Pilate came out to them and asked, "What charges are you bringing against this man?"
30"If he were not a criminal," they replied, "we would not have handed him over to you."
31Pilate said, "Take him yourselves and judge him by your own law."
"But we have no right to execute anyone," the Judeans objected. 32This happened so that the words Jesus had spoken indicating the kind of death he was going to die would be fulfilled.
33Pilate then went back inside the palace, summoned Jesus and asked him, "Are you the king of the Judeans?"
34"Is that your own idea," Jesus asked, "or did others talk to you about me?"
35"Am I a Judean?" Pilate replied. "It was your people and your chief priests who handed you over to me. What is it you have done?"
36Jesus said, "My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Judeans. But now my kingdom is from another place."
37"You are a king, then!" said Pilate.
Jesus answered, "You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me."
38"What is truth?" Pilate asked. With this he went out again to the Jews and said, "I find no basis for a charge against him. 39But it is your custom for me to release to you one prisoner at the time of the Passover. Do you want me to release the king of the Judeans'?"
40They shouted back, "No, not him! Give us Barabbas!" Now Barabbas had taken part in a rebellion.
1Then Pilate took Jesus and had him flogged. 2The soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head. They clothed him in a purple robe 3and went up to him again and again, saying, "Hail, king of the Judeans!" And they struck him in the face.
4Once more Pilate came out and said to the Judeans, "Look, I am bringing him out to you to let you know that I find no basis for a charge against him." 5When Jesus came out wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe, Pilate said to them, "Here is the man!"
6As soon as the chief priests and their officials saw him, they shouted, "Crucify! Crucify!"
But Pilate answered, "You take him and crucify him. As for me, I find no basis for a charge against him."
7The Judeans insisted, "We have a law, and according to that law he must die, because he claimed to be the Son of God."
8When Pilate heard this, he was even more afraid, 9and he went back inside the palace. "Where do you come from?" he asked Jesus, but Jesus gave him no answer
. 10"Do you refuse to speak to me?" Pilate said. "Don't you realize I have power either to free you or to crucify you?"
11Jesus answered, "You would have no power over me if it were not given to you from above. Therefore the one who handed me over to you is guilty of a greater sin."
12From then on, Pilate tried to set Jesus free, but the Judeans kept shouting, "If you let this man go, you are no friend of Caesar. Anyone who claims to be a king opposes Caesar."
13When Pilate heard this, he brought Jesus out and sat down on the judge's seat at a place known as the Stone Pavement (which in Aramaic is Gabbatha). 14It was the day of Preparation of Passover Week, about the sixth hour.
"Here is your king," Pilate said to the Judeans.
15But they shouted, "Take him away! Take him away! Crucify him!"
"Shall I crucify your king?" Pilate asked.
"We have no king but Caesar," the chief priests answered.
16Finally Pilate handed him over to them to be crucified.
Now who told Pilate that He was Galilean? THE MOB, the very same Mob that in Jn 19, 21. tells that He said that He was King of the Judeans. You trust this mob to tell you stuff? Come on you are better than that. They do not know what they are doing, Lord said that. I would not trust them with a rotten tomato little own with Scriptures. Only people who called Christ Nazarean (to make the prophecy come true) were not nice guys anyway (again except St. Nathaniel, who is using the term slighly derogatory... so it seems, other than that you have mob and demons...).
Christ was not Galiean. If some of Holy Apostles were (as St. Peter) that does not make HIM a Galilean.
Christ was born in Judea. St. Joseph and Theotokos were both of Judean origin. David was a Judean, and both of them (St. Joseph and Theotokos come from tribe of David, so does Lord). They were not Galileans.. none of them.
