1Corinthians and the Counting of the Omer Part 3: The Works of Elohim By James Trimm
The Middle Triad
Gift of Healing
For obvious reasons this manifestation is closely associated with the Sefirah known as CHESED. It is associated with the right hand of Adam Kadmon (the right hand being on the right hand side of the chart, as if Adam Kadmon had his back toward the viewer.) For this… Continue

15: And you shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete: 16: Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number fifty days; and you shall offer a new meat offering unto YHWH. 17: Ye shall bring out of your habitations two wave loaves of two tenth…
The Munster Hebrew text of Hebrews is now in print for the first time in nearly 500 years, and for the first time ever in English!
Although the Greek version of the Epistle to the Hebrews has become the standard text used in Christendom, the "Church Fathers" of Christendom openly admitted that the Letter to the Hebrews had been originally written in Hebrew and was later translated into Greek.
Eusebius in the fourth century referred to a now lost writing by Clement of… Continue

Why should you care what the original language of the “New Testament” was?
Because Messianic Jewish Scholars have admitted that Messianic Judaism's highest authority must be the Bible and that it must be objectively understood in context of the original language in which it was revealed. Messianic Leader Daniel Juster writes:
It is crucial to understand that the highest… Continue
The question of the original language of the books known as the “New Testament” is one which is not clearly resolved in the Scriptures alone. What may be known from the Scriptures can be augmented by what we know of Second Temple Era Judaism as well as the writings of the so-called “Church Fathers”. Both of these lines of evidence point us to the same answer of a Hebrew and Aramaic Origin of the New… Continue
We were prompted to do this study because of the disturbing remark we read in Grote Winkler Prins Encyclopedie1 (Dutch),that the uncertainty as to the true pronunciation of the Name constantly causes embarrassment to Bible translators. But this uncertainty causes much perplexity as well as embarrassment to all believers. Although not always… Continue
The Tetragram's transliteration remained surrogated by the Greek Kurios, the Latin Dominus, and our modern Lord etc., for almost 1400 years, without any challenge, as far as we know. Then the form Jehovah started to appear. This is generally ascribed to the work of Peter… Continue
Last year while studying the book of 1stCorinthinans I saw something I had never seen before. The Book of 1stCorinthians was written shortly after Passover, as Paul criticizes the handling of a recent seder at Corinth (1Cor. 5) and looks forward to the coming Shavuot (1Cor. 16:8). This letter is written during the counting of the omer and that theme… Continue

Saved by Water? A Look at 1Kefa 3:20-21 by James Scott Trimm
1Kefa 3:20-21 is a stock "proof text" used by the "Church of Christ" (i.e. "Cambelites" or those of the "Restoration movement"). Those of this movement often use this verse to "prove" their doctrine that a person cannot be saved unless they have been water baptized.
In my recent posting about the Apocrypha I have gotten some interesting emails. One person said that they had read the Apocrypha and did not find anything of value in it. Another asked if there are any Messianic Prophecies in the Apocrypha. In reply I would like to post these prophetic gems from the Apocrypha:
The suffering servant Messiah in Wisdom of Solomon:
12: Therefore let us lie in wait for the righteous; because he is not for our turn, and he is clean contrary to… Continue
