The Great Mystery: How Can Three Be One?

How can they (the three) be One?
Are they Truely One because we call them One?
How Three can be One can only be known
through the revelation of the Holy Spirit.

(Zohar 2:43)


This momentous volume was originally published by Rabbi Tzivi Nassi (Hirsch Prinz) nearly a century and a half ago in 1863, at a time when Nazarene Judaism did not exist as an organized movement (though individual Nazarenes have always existed).

Rabbi Tzivi Nassi was born in Breslau, Silesia (in present day Poland), on August 11, 1800, the youngest of six children he was the son of an Orthodox Rabbi. Though orphaned at the age of fourteen, he chose to follow in his father’s footsteps becoming an Orthodox Rabbi. In 1824 he published Predigten fur fromme Israeliten (“Sermons for Pious Israelites”). At about this same time he came to the conclusion that Yeshua was the Messiah and began teaching from the “New Testament” to his congregation. He soon found himself subject to much persecution. He eventually left the synagogue, and having nowhere else to go, he went over to Christianity and became a Lecturer in Hebrew at Oxford University.

I was first exposed to this amazing treatise around 1988, at a time when I was struggling myself with the very issues discussed in the little book. At the time I was studying under my mentor, Rabbi Moyal, an Orthodox Rabbi from Israel, who had himself become a believer in Messiah. He gave me a copy of this little book which had been reprinted in Israel in 1970 and 1974. I was amazed at what I learned in such a short booklet. The book inspired me to research the subject further, and much of that research is found in the appendix to the present edition.

It is without hesitation, and with great pleasure that we at the Worldwide Nazarene Assembly of Elohim publish this new edition of The Great Mystery or How Can Three Be One” by Rabbi Tzvi Nassi with a new Appendix by James Scott Trimm.
