The Talmud and We

There has been a great deal of discussion in the movement today over how

we as Nazarenes should view Jewish tradition, Oral Law and the Talmud.



Now it is important to understand the first century world from which

Nazarene Judaism emerged. There were three major sects of Judaism at the

time: Pharisees, Sadducees and Essenes.



The first century writer Josephus writes of the Pharisees:



"...the Pharisees have delivered to the people a great many… Continue

Injured and Back

Shalom Chaverim,



Well folks, like it or not, I am back devoting my full time service to Yahweh. As many of you know I took a full time job back in June to help make ends meet. In August I suffered an on the job injury to my ankles. At first my employer was accommodating, but that ended yesterday. My employer is now insisting that any injury I had should have been healed by now, and has notified me that while I was re assigned to "light duty" my regular job was eliminated. They have… Continue

Should Judaizers Judaize?

SHOULD JUDAIZERS JUDAIZE?



By James Scott Trimm





Many Christians have come to use the term "Judaizers" to describe Paul's oponants in the book of Galatians, who by their interpretation were wrongly teaching Gentiles to keep the Jewish Law.



Sadly many in the Messianic Jewish movement have brought this term into the movement with them as part of their "baggage" left over from Christianity.



I have talked to many in the movement who used this term and… Continue

The Misunderstanding of Paul

THE MISUNDERSTANDING OF PAUL



BY JAMES SCOTT TRIMM





Lets start by looking at five verses:



James 2:24

Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.



Romans 3:20

Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his

sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.



Romans 2:13

(For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the

law shall be… Continue

Laying a Foundation

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 Alexandria wrote around the year 200 C.E. which Eusebius

cites as follows:



In the work called Hypotyposes, to… Continue

Hebrew Tobit, Matthew and Hebrews

WHAT DOES TRANSMISSION OF THE BOOK OF TOBIT

TELL US ABOUT THE HEBREW ORIGIN OF MATTHEW AND HEBREWS?





The Book of Tobit is one of the books of the "apocrypha". The books

of the apocrypha are part of the canon of Roman Catholics but not

part of the canon of Protestants and Jews.



The Book of Tobit is a book which originated in Jewish circles and

was adopted into Christian usage. Eventually the book ceased to be

used in Jewish circles and was only… Continue

Top 10 Greek NT Arguments

TOP 10 REASONS GIVEN BY GREEK PRIMACISTS FOR MAINTAINING A GREEK

ORIGIN FOR THE NEW TESTAMENT

(and the 10 reasons they are wrong on each account)



1. The oldest manuscripts are Greek.



RESPONSE:



Yes it is true that our oldest Hebrew copies of Matthew and Hebrews

books date back to the 4th century… Continue

There are a number of "blunders" in the text of the Greek New Testament which do not occur in the Hebrew and Aramaic manuscripts. The Hebraic Roots Version (HRV) is based on Hebrew and Aramaic manuscripts and does not contain many of these errors.

Joining groups and brethren

I was recently asked to join a group online, and did not agree with all the questions required to be answered upon joining, so I marked unsure or disagreed with everything and joined anyhow. The group owner wished to know why and I responded as follows.



It's not that I necessarily stand against anything, it's just that I disagree or am unsure where I stand concerning the statements we were required to answer in order to join. I felt like I was being forced to answer in the… Continue

Now it Can Finally be Revealed: Who are the King of the North and the King of the South?



Now it Can Finally be Revealed:

Who are the King of the North and the King of the South?


By James Trimm





Scripture tells us that in the last days Israel will be caught in the midst of a conflict between the “King of the North” and the “King of the South” (Dan. 11 & 12). In the past some interpreters have identified the invasion of Israel by the “King of the North” in Daniel 11 with the invasion by “Gog and Magog” in Ezekiel 38 (and thus with Russia).… Continue

What's in a name???

Because of "Kdusha,"(Holiness) and in order to prevent mispronunciation of the four-letter Name (The Essence of the L-RD), Jews usually substitute the Name with a single Hebrew letter or phrase, or as HASHEM, or Adonai. In Traditional Siddurim and Bibles you may find G-d's Essence Name. This is the four-letter Name that starts with the letter "Yood." A True Jew will never say this Name because of "Yir-at HASHEM," or Fear and Deep Devotion of/to G-d.



Exd 3:14 And G-d said unto Moses:… Continue

The Masorah and Tikkun Soferim

The term “Masorah” refers to the marginal notes which were transmitted by the Masorites along with the Masoretic Text. The notes transmitted in the side margins are called the “Masorah Parva” or “Masorah Katonah”. The notes transmitted on the top and bottom margins are the “Masorah Magna” also known as “Masorah Gedolah”. Finally the notes transmitted at the end of the text are the Masorah Finalis.



Among the notes preserved in the Massorah Gedolah are those of the Tikkun Soferim… Continue

Torah Made Flesh - Deut. 30, Baruch and Romans 10

Shalom Chaverim,



Not long ago I posted a discovery I had made that shed light on Romans Chapter 10.



Recently I have made a further discovery concerning this passage. This further discovery reinforces the correctness of the previous discovery and adds to it evidence that Paul's argument in Romans 10 is drawn in part from the apocryphal book of Baruch (which he clearly therefore used).



To best understand this new insight, it is best to incorporate it into

the… Continue
