Summary: The Septuagint presents the Messiah as God incarnate, whose bodily sacrifice is the means for our salvation. The New Testament quotes the Septuagint (LXX) and not the Masoretic Text (MT) upon which all Protestant Bibles rely for the Old Testament. The MT obscures, intentionally, the mission of the Messiah and the nature of His Person. Salvation is not by faith in the Son of God, but by following the Law. Therefore, the Messiah is a rock of stumbling for those who do not believe. However, He is the rock of our salvation, for both Gentiles and for Jews, who … Read More
Lyn Leahz, who has a great audience and works so effectively at creating fast-paced, creative, and fascinating videos produced this video hosting yours truly a couple of nights back for Freedom Nation News.
It is well-edited, packing a lot into 39 minutes (really it’s only about 36 if you cut out the intro which you really should still watch).
Lyn sets me loose to explain the essentials about the rabbinical conspiracy to confuse biblical passages which predict the identity and mission of the Messiah. This is the best video yet allowing me to explain the primary “hook” in my book, … Read More
Summary: When the Temple was destroyed in 70 A.D., it is correct to say that Judaism split into two different religions. Both were new. One sect was Christianity, the other, Rabbinic Judaism. Christianity was led by Peter and Paul. Rabbinic Judaism was led, ultimately, by Rabbi Akiba. The difference between these two new forms of Judaism couldn’t have been more dramatic. What are the reasons the two religions would be so different? What did the split have to do with the teaching of Jesus of Nazareth? Could they ever be reconciled?
Understand, then, that those who have faith are … Read More
Summary: Is the Bible’s chronology corrupted? Did this corruption take place before the time of Christ? Or might it have happened after the Temple was destroyed in 70 A.D. when rabbis altered the Old Testament to hide the fact that Jesus of Nazareth fulfilled the prophecies of the Messiah?
Which Chronology is Correct? The Masoretic’s or the Septuagint’s?
Perhaps the strongest proof demonstrating the corruption of the Masoretic Text (MT) comes from an analysis of its chronology. In contrast to the majority view in Evangelicalism that sees the MT’s timeline of Genesis 5 and 11 as the authentic chronology, there … Read More
Summary: The Bible we have today is the result of herculean efforts by scholars for over 500 years, built on sustained efforts to maintain the pure Word of God for almost 1500 years prior to that. Those who do the work of text criticism to discern the original words written by prophets and apostles almost always believe in the providence of God to preserve the text of the Bible for all generations. The issue is how it was preserved. This article focuses on the Old Testament and how its transmission to us is indeed an epic story, one that … Read More
