DOES THE BIBLE GIVE US A DATE WHEN CREATION OCCURRED?

CORRECTING CHRONOLOGY –
THE GENESIS TIMELINE RECOVERED

Summary:  The conventional biblical timeline is presented in the King James Bible and was supported by the work of Bishop Ussher in his magnum opus, Annals of the World. But does his work stand up to scrutiny from both biblical and secular scholars?  There is much debate. I touch on that debate here, pointing out the distinction between the creation of the universe and the creation of humankind. the pivotal issue has to do with whether the Masoretic Text’s chronology or the Septuagint’s chronology is correct. What does the Septuagint teach that Read More

THE LXX REVEALS CHRIST IS GOD AND HIS SACRIFICE SAVES US. THE MT (KJV OT) DOES NOT.

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

THE MESSIAH’S MISSION TO THE GENTILES — HIDDEN IN THE MASORETIC TEXT (AND THE KING JAMES BIBLE)

Summary:There are many passages in the Hebrew Masoretic Text that do not reflect the original Hebrew which has been demonstrated to be the Vorlage of the Septuagint (from which the Greek Bible was copied) and the most ancient copies of the Hebrew. The passages in question number several dozen – not counting the Genesis 5 and 11 chronologies that also were changed to hide the timing of the Messiah’s coming. The primary emphasis in these targeted passages relate to prophecies about the Messiah, His nature and His mission. In this article, we look at six pivotal passages comparing the Read More

HOW THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS SPOIL THE RABBINIC STRATAGEM TO DESTROY THE SEPTUAGINT

Going for the Juggler: The Plan to Destroy the Old Greek Septuagint.

INTRODUCTION: At the end of the first century, with its temple in ruins, tens of thousands killed in the revolt that ended in the tragedy at Masada, and Rome still in control of their land, how could the new rabbinic form of Judaism rid itself of their rival pesky Jewish sect, the Christians?  Rabbi Akiba, its newly acknowledged leader, elected to attack Christianity’s principaltext; namely, the Septuagint translated from the old Hebrew in Alexandria 400 years earlier.How could he do this? And is it speculation to think Read More

WHY ABRAHAM’S CHILDREN BROKE APART: IT’S HISTORY’S MOST CRUCIAL SPLIT UP

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
