We used a very interesting word as an example in the above lessons. It is a Hebrew word that was transliterated into Greek and is often transliterated into English – AMEN (click here to see example). In this blog we are going to focus on the word “AMEN” in the Greek text of the New Testament:


Before we turn to the Greek text, we need to discuss chapter and verse markers in the Bible. They are not found in the ancient Greek manuscripts. Classically, scrolls of the books of the bible have always been divided by blank spaces at the end (petuhoth) or middle (setumoth) of the lines. Stephen Langton, Archbisho…

Looking at Christianity From the Other End of the Timeline

When we look back down the timeline of Christianity to the period in which Jesus lived, an inch on the timeline can cover centuries.  The importance of many of the events that took place during that inch are unknown today, along with the people that lived in that inch. This is a reality that every genealogist comes to understand very quickly. We also learn another very important truth – every one of the people in my line of ancestors had to live for me to exist. It took them all to create my DNA.

But, there is more to each of us than a collection of genes that made their way across time to become our part of our DNA – our beliefs were also making their way across time to become part of our Belief Systems.  Genes and beliefs both affect how we understand, view and understand our world and the things that happen in it. Until we learn about the journeys of our genes and beliefs, we live our lives completely unaware of their origins and roles. Read the complete blog at -- http://fromonejes…

The Salvation Message of Yeshua: Light and Darkness

The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore, if you are a generous person that gives to the poor your whole body will be full of light. But if you are a stingy or greedy person who gives his poor needy brother nothing, your whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness! (Matthew 6:22-23)
My two previous blogs have unlocked the meanings of the two idioms Yeshua used in the verses above:
(1) good eyea generous person that gives to the poor (2) evil eyea stingy or greedy person who gives his needy brother nothing
Now let’s turn our attention to the words light and darkness. In the Jewish culture light and life are often used synonymously. This relationship can be found in numerous examples, like the one below.
"Better to extinguish the light on Sabbath than to extinguish life, which is God's light" (Shab. 30b).[i]
The parallels are clear:
(1) light = life (2) darkness = death
The relationship of the Creator a…
