First and foremost the Netzarim are NOT Christian, It’s NOT a play on words and NOT Noahides or Karites, But the Restored original (1st century pre-Christian) B’nai Netzarim Ha’Derech of historical Ribi Eashoa before the Roman Hellenist Apostasy of 135CE.
The Netzari are the followers of Eashoa and mentioned numerous times in Scripture. Notable verses include:
(1) Isaiah 11:1 Isaiah 11:1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Netzer (Branch) shall grow out of his roots.
Our Savior, Eashoa haMoshiach, is the Netzer in our understanding.
(2) Matthew (Mattyah) 2:23. “He will be called a Netzari (Nazoraios).
We here learn that the Savior was a Netzari.
(3) Acts (Ma’asei) 24:5. (Tertullus the Lawyer is speaking to Festus the Governor:) “This man Paul is a troublemaker. … He is a ringleader of the Netzari (Nazoraion) sect.”And here we learn that those who followed Paul were Netzari. But look –
(4) Acts (Ma’asei) 11:26. It was at Antioch that the disciples were first called “Christians”. Netzari ≠ Christian. Antioch was a pagan city. It was populated by Greeks. “Christian” means “Smeared One.” This title was probably not complimentary, but meant as an insult, and is only mentioned as an aside ∗. The Savior and his disciples were Israelites and spoke the language of Israel. But “Christian” is a Greek word; one that the disciples would never use, though pagan Greeks would. “Christian” is found only three times in the Greek Scriptures. It is not found at all in the Scriptures of the Israelite language.
Nazorean, Nazarene, or following the sect of the Nazarenes mentioned in Mattyah (Matthew) 2:23 and. Netzer means “branch” Yeshayahu (Isaiah 11:1). It also means guardian or keeper, as in “keeper of the Torah,” the commandments of Father Yahweh.
Netzarim Believers do not emphasize theology or doctrine as the standard of “Faith”, but righteous character and the action of true Faith. Torah observance by Faith is action demonstrating the anointing of the Ruach HaKodesh (Set-Apart Spirit). If one says they have Faith, but has NO love for Torah, their Faith is vanity.
Ya‛aqob 1:22-25 And become doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
Ya’aqob 2:18 Yes, a man will say, “You have faith, and I have worked. “Show me your faith without works, and I by my works will show you my faith.
