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

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?
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
BY JAMES SCOTT TRIMM
Lets start by looking at five verses:
Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.
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.
(For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the
law shall be… Continue

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:

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 REASONS GIVEN BY GREEK PRIMACISTS FOR MAINTAINING A GREEK

1. The oldest manuscripts are Greek.
Yes it is true that our oldest Hebrew copies of Matthew and Hebrews
(the only NT books we have in Hebrew) only date back to the middle
ages. And it is true that our oldest Aramaic copies of New Testament
books date back to the 4th century… Continue

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

apart from my wife i have not found others in my area that don't eat pigs, and don't do pagan holidays, i am still learning,
how about you
Pigs are in abundance these days, bud, and one must do something with them. If the pagans and their wives are going to create them, it ought to be their responsibility to dispose of them in whatever manner is meet.

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.

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

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
