The Student Students tudents Edition

Introduction Before you begin reading this translation there are certain words or phrases to learn first or you will get lost. El Shaddai -the name I will use for God. In Hebrew Yahweh or Yahveh is a popular name for God, but he was known to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as El Shaddai and it is a name without controversy. Jesus -the name I will use for Jesus . His Hebrew name was Yahoshua, but the English world knows him as Jesus. Sometimes Ill call him Yahoshua just to remind you what a beautiful name he has. Elohim - an old Hebrew word used for El Shaddai, angels and men Eloha -Used only for the supreme God, El Shaddai. Eloha is the singular noun for Elohim. Adoni- meaning Prince/teacher/ruler/prince Adonai- meaning the Supreme God. Chokma meaning Wisdom a spirit/angel. Since spirits have no gender, I will render Wisdom with the neuter it. Ma'amar- meaning the logos/architect angel of El Shaddai's presence whose appearance is marked by the eternal light of Glory. This is the Wisdom angel, the first born angel who created the world, the Logos who gave Moses the first Torah Covenant. It led the children of Israel out of Egypt, could forgive sins and was sometimes addressed as El Shaddai for it had El Shaddai's name in it. This Ma'amar angel is the same angel that indwelt Jesus at the Jordan River when he was baptized by John. Hierarchy means the divine order, or protocols, for communicating. No man can see El Shaddai and live that means El Shaddai can only interact with humans through mediators. Angels and a few humans have been his mediators. Since they are El Shaddai's viceroys, the scriptures call them elohim. Moses was elohim to Pharaoh, Exodus 7: 1; the judges were called elohim. Samuel was an Elohim. An example of the hierarchical format for communicating is found in Revelation1:1: El Shaddai talks to Jesus , Jesus talks to an angel, then the angel talks to John the Revelator and John tells the message to the people. This is the only way El Shaddai interacts with humans. He uses agents but the agents sometime are called by the Hebrews El Shaddai or use one of his titles. The Hebrews were able to call the angel El Shaddai, but knew he was only representing El Shaddai. Life there are two Greek words for life: Psyche and Zo. Psyche is our breathing biological earth life. Zo is eternal life - to gain Zo/eternal life we must be unattached from our Psyche breath life. Psyche/Earth-love is a serious impediment to spiritual growth. Tirosh meaning unfermented wine: a pulpy grape juice. Yayin meaning fermented alcoholic wine. Shekinah/ Shokeyn a Chaldee word meaning resting-place, not found in Scripture, but used by the later Jews to designate the visible symbol of El Shaddai's presence in the Tabernacle, and afterwards in Solomon's temple. (Easton's Bible Dictionary, 1897). The Logos Wisdom angel rides on a Shokeyn cloud of light. Shekinah is not a Hebrew word, and it is not scriptural, it is a feminine word that has been popularized among Christians and Jews and may find its source in the Quran in 2:248 Tabut the Sakina resides in the ark. Shoyken is the right word . It is a masculine word, but 3

somehow the feminine word Shekinah has replaced it giving rise to the false impression that there is a mother El goddess, or that El Shaddai is a bigendered being; an androgynous mother/father. This has further lead to the erroneous idea that angels are feminine. Kabod is a mantle of blinding light. The shokeyn cloud glows because of this light, the light blinds men from seeing the angel seated on the throne in the cloud. Kabod means weight in a good sense as to be weighted down with honor, blessing and riches. In the passage when Jesus was asking for his Kabod glory it was like a gladiator asking for his equipment. The Kingdom of Heaven, The kingdom of El Shaddai/the Kingdom of his Beloved Son, or the Kingdom of Jesus are all the same place - to enter it you must be born again. El Shaddai is the king, Jesus is the prince. He said, my father is greater than I. (John 14:28)

Our goal is to enter the kingdom now by repenting and accepting El Shaddais reign over us, confessing that Jesus is his son whose blood on the cross washes away our sins. That he died and rose again and asking him into our hearts. By obeying the New Covenant Torah (words of Jesus ) and asking him into our hearts, we receive the Logos /Wisdom /Angel of His Presence who removes our stone hearts and gives us obedient hearts. When that happens we are in the kingdom now, but there is more to come, on the Judgment Day, we will enter the fullness of the Kingdom Ruach/Pneuma/Spirit/ means breath, or spirit/angel. Since the word Spirit in both Greek (Pneuma) and Hebrew (Ruach) can also mean angel, sometimes I will use the word angel where traditionalists used Spirit. Since spirit is neuter I will translated it as it, not he or she. Dynamic Equivalency- meaning the translators do not translate word for word, but translate thought by thought. This is the model used by the NIV translators. My translation is a dynamic equivalency. The NIV translators added to the text without indicating to the reader when they have done so. I will make the text bold when I add. Gospel is loosely translated as Wisdom, Words of El Shaddai, Deeds, Message, Good News from the Battle Field, Teaching, in Hebrew Davar or Memra (instructions) and in Greek Logos (sayings, commands, words) or the New Covenant Torah. The word Lord poses a serious problem because in Greek and English we have only one word, but in Hebrew there is the LORD (Adonai) El Shaddai and there is the lord (Adoni) Jesus. The reader is unable to tell them apart for previous translators offered no apparatus to help. I will make it easy by referring to the LORD Adonai GOD as El Shaddai and the lord Adoni Jesus as Prince Jesus . Prince seems appropriate since the Gospel is about a kingdom where El Shaddai is the king and Jesus is his beloved son, the Prince. Translators Note: the original four manuscripts now known as the Four Gospels did not have titles, chapter headings, or numbers, nor did they have authors names. There was no punctuation and ALLTHE LETTERSWERECAPTIALLETTERSWITHNOSOACESBETWEENWORDS. Punctuation can change the meaning completely. Trinitarians will punctuate unclear phrases to affirm that Jesus is God, but since there is no direct statement that Jesus is God, I will punctuate it to affirm that Jesus was a man. It is the translators belief that the original authors of the Gospels spoke and wrote in Hebrew and in order to understand their thoughts, we must ask ourselves how would this be said in Hebrew? The Translator began studying Greek when he lived 4

in Greece in 1970 and Hebrew when he lived in Israel, in 1971. He began this translation in 2010. He undertook this translation because he felt our modern English translators, since the 17th Century, have translated many of their preconceived doctrines into the texts, creating a Jesus who is not the same as the one who rose from the grave, and a Gospel contrary to the one he taught. I also believe the Gospels were all written before 70 AD. Mark refers to Caesarea Philippi, which is located at the northern tip of Israel. Its name was changed by the Romans about 50-C.E. to Baas, so Mark must have written his Gospel before 50 A.D. http://www.2001translation.com/MARK.htm#_Jesus %92__Mother_and_Brothers Jos O'Callaghan has argued that one fragment ( 7Q5) found among the Dead Sea Scrolls is a New Testament text from the Gospel of Mark, chapter 6, verses 5253. A successful identification of this fragment as a passage from Mark would make it the earliest extant New Testament document, dating somewhere between A.D. 30 and 60. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dead_Sea_Scrolls#Christian_connections I further believe, Jesus spoke Hebrew and not Greek, or Aramaic. Aramaic was a mixture of Babylonian and Hebrew. M.H. Segal who in 1909 suggested that the Israeli people in the land of Israel at the time of Jesus used Hebrew as their primary spoken and written language. Segal was an authority on Mishnaic Hebrew. The discovery of the Bar Kochvah letters have since confirmed his conclusions. Professor Shmuel Safrai, also of the Hebrew University, a founding member of the Jerusalem School, concluded that Hebrew, not Aramaic, was the primary spoken language of Jesus . He has since written several articles on the subject, some of which may be found in the periodical Jerusalem Perspective (www.JerusalemPerspective.com). The Rabbis of Jesus day and for hundreds of years after him delivered their parables, legal rulings, prayers and sermons entirely in Hebrew. (Safrai 1991) The Maccabean Revolt, in 168 BC, was a revolt against all things Greek. It was said, the day on which the Bible had been translated into Greek was as fateful as that on which the golden calf had been worshiped. (Soferimi) After the war with Titus, no Israeli was allowed to permit his son to learn Greek. (Soah ix. 14) The eminent first century Jewish historian, priest, and scholar Josephus admitted that he could not speak Greek fluently and that the Jews frowned on any Jew who did. (Antiquities, 20:11:2) http://www.remnantofyhwh.com/Hebrew%20Origin%20NT.htm With this in mind, I have tried to retell the Gospel of John based on the Hebrew subtext. I do not claim to be a teacher, or a prophet or an expert; I am just a student. One reason I believe the Gospel (and other New Testament writings) were written much earlier than current scholars believe, is that no writer in the New Testament records the destruction of Jerusalem, which took place in 70 AD. Such a cataclysmic event, from which the Israelis have never recovered, would have been mentioned by any writer after 70 AD. I believe the four Gospel writers wrote shortly after 30 AD, but no later than 69 AD. John A. T. Robinson (Redating the New Testament, The Priority of John) dates Johns writings before 40 AD. 5

We have three fragments on Papyrus 1. Magdalene Papyrus (P64) was found in Luxor, Egypt. Using new tools such as a scanning laser microscope along with more conventional handwriting analysis, Thiede re-dates the fragments, previously dated in the mid- to late second century, to sometime between 30 and 70 A.D. 2. Barcelona papyrus (P67) contains Matthew 3:9, 15; Matthew 5:20-22, 2528 ....... Dated before 66 A.D. 3. Paris Papyrus (P4) contains Luke 3:23, 5:36 ...... Dated 66 A.D.

Chapter One We must begin with the way the Hebrews/Jews thought El Shaddai functioned in the world. To them he did not directly enter his creation, but only interacted through agents. Exo 33:20 And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live. Joh 1:18 No man hath seen God at any time; 1 Tim 1:17 God is invisible Joh 5:37 Jesus said, the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape. Revelation 1:1 shows the pattern Rev 1:1 This book is the record of the events that Jesus the Christ revealed. God gave him this revelation in order to show to his servants what must happen very soon. Christ made these things known to his servant John by sending his angel to him, and John has told all that he has seen. 1. El Shaddai gave Jesus the Revelation. 2. Jesus told it to an angel. 3. The angel told it to John. 4. John told it to the people. So whenever people in the OT spoke of seeing El Shaddai it was one of his agents, usually the Angel of his Presence, Chokma Wisdom. The next thing we need to know is how to define the word Spirit/ruach/pneuma. In Heb. 12:9 El Shaddai is called the Father of Spirits These spirits are called Bene Elohim (the children of El Shaddai). Some spirit beings are Cherubim, Seraphim, Ophanim (they hold up El Shaddais throne), the Tsebaoth, heavenly hosts described as an army. and finally the Malakim (messengers angels), So not all spirit beings are angels, just as El Shaddai himself is a spirit being, but not an angel. Angels bring messages to humans, but some have rebelled and are what we call demons. Since angels do not mate, it is correct to use the word it to describe one. Philo , an early Christian Jew from Egypt who spoke mostly Greek said wisdom was an angel the Logos, the first and oldest angel. Philo describes the Logos as the revealer of God symbolized in the Scripture (Gen. 31:13; 16:8; etc) by an angel of the Lord (Somn. 1.228-239; Cher. 1-3). The Logos is the first-born and the eldest and chief of the angels. Philo identifies his Logos with Wisdom of Proverbs 8:22 (Ebr.31) The supreme being is God and the next is Wisdom or the Logos of God (Op. 24). The fundamental doctrine propounded by Philo is that the Logos was an intermediary power, a messenger and mediator between God and the world. And the father who created the universe has given to his archangel and most ancient Logos a pre-eminent gift, to stand on the confines of both, and separate that which had been created from the Creator. And this same Logos is continually a suppliant to the immortal God on behalf of the mortal race, which is exposed to affliction and misery; and is also the ambassador, sent by the Ruler of all, to the subject race. So in Philos view the Father is the Supreme Being and the Logos, as his chief messenger, stands between the Creator and his creatures. The Logos is an ambassador.
(http://www.iep.utm.edu/p/philo.htm#H11)

the archangel with many names -taxiarch the expiator of sins, and the mediator and advocate for men. Philo said the Logos is a kind of shadow cast by God, having the outlines but not the blinding light of the Divine Being. The Logos as "interpreter" announces God's designs to man. (Taken from the Jewish Encyclopediaonline.com). John 1:1 En arche en o logos, kai o logos en pros ton Theon kai Theos en o logos. In a council was the logos and the logos was beside the supreme Elohim and an elohim was the logos. This is the most controversial verse in the New Testament. It has been hotly debated and four sides have emerged. Those who say Jesus is the Logos and the second person of God Trinitarians. Those who say Jesus is the Logos and a lesser God (Michael the archangel) Jehovahs Witnesses. Those who say Jesus is the Logos, but there is only one God and Jesus is a miraculously born man in which the logos incarnated Unitarians. And the Fourth position is mine. The Logos is the Wisdom angel of El Shaddai who dwelt in Jesus who was a normal man born of Joseph and there is only one God El Shaddai. Arche has several different meanings, such as first estate, magistrate, or ruling council (Shirt 2010), power, principality, principle, rule; it is used six times for rulers (Strong 1890). The arche is described in the Book of Daniel Dan 7:9-10 I watched until thrones were set up and the Ancient One, who has lived for endless years, sat down. His clothes were as white as snow and the hair on his head was like pure wool. His throne was fiery flames, and its wheels were burning fire. A river of fire flowed. It came from him. Thousands and thousands served him. Ten thousand times ten thousand were stationed in front of him. The court convened, and the books were opened. The Logos is the messenger/angel of El Shaddai. Sometimes the angel is actually called El Shaddai because it is the angel of El Shaddais presence. To the Hebrews it was Maamar . It meant Torah, Wisdom (Chokma), Word (Davar), or spokesman - the first created Elohim child of El Shaddai one of the many Elohim. It was at the council of the Elohim presided over by El Shaddai the supreme Elohim that the Mamar Spokesman revealed El Shaddais plan to the rest of the Elohim. From the Jewish Encylopediaonline.com In the Targum the Memra (Maamar) figures constantly as the manifestation of the divine power, or as God's messenger in place of God Himself Like the Shekinah (comp. Targ. Num. xxiii. 21), the Memra is accordingly the manifestation of God. "The Memra brings Israel nigh unto God and sits on His throne receiving the prayers of Israel" (Targ. Yer. to Deut. iv. 7). It shielded Noah from the flood (Targ. Yer. to Gen. vii. 16) and brought about the dispersion of the seventy nations (l.c. xi. 8); it is the guardian of Jacob (Gen. xxviii. 20-21, xxxv. 3) and of Israel (Targ. Yer. to Ex. xii. 23, 29); it works all the wonders in Egypt (l.c. xiii. 8, xiv. 25); hardens the heart of Pharaoh (l.c. xiii. 15); goes before Israel in the wilderness (Targ. Yer. to Ex. xx. 1); blesses Israel (Targ. Yer. to Num. xxiii. 8); battles for the people (Targ. Josh. iii. 7, x. 14, xxiii. 3). As in ruling over the destiny of man the Memra is the agent of God (Targ. Yer. to Num. xxvii. 16).

John 1:1 (a dynamic equivalency) At a council was Wisdom, the architect/ambassador/mediator/logos/Wisdom angel. It was with the supreme Elohim El Shaddai and the Wisdom angel was El Shaddais first created elohim the Architect. Joh 1.2 Wisdom the architect angel/logos was at the council beside El Shaddai. Joh 1:3 El Shaddai made all things by Wisdom his architect angel/ and without it nothing came into existence. Psa 136:5 To him that by wisdom made the heavens: Pro 3:19 The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth Joh 1:4 Wisdom the architect angel was the conduit for eternal Life to enter the creation and this eternal life brought light to the gloomy humans. Joh 1:5 To this day the eternal Light still shines in the gloom and the gloomy humans have never been able to extinguish it. Joh 1:6 El Shaddai appointed a man named John to be his human Elohim (ambassador, messenger, High priest, spokesman, oracle, Torah teacher, prophet, ruler). Joh 1:7 Johns mission was to teach everyone about the eternal light and turn them to the light. Joh 1:8 John was not the eternal life-giving/light, but was to explain how the eternal /light gives eternal Life. Joh 1:9 Johns mission was to show how that eternal life/light was for everyone who was, or would be, born. Joh 1:10 The Wisdom architect angel/logos was participating in the Kosmos, but alas even though it was the architect of the Kosmos, most people rejected it. Joh 1:11 It came to the very people that it had created and they rejected it. Joh 1:12 But as many as received him/the Angel of El Shaddais Presence, to them gave it the right to become Bnai Elohim ( human children of El Shaddai) even to them that believe on El Shaddais name: for they knew El Shaddais name/power was in it. Joel 2:32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of El Shaddai shall be delivered/saved: Joh 1:13 Becoming a child of El Shadddai (a second birth) is not a physical birth of flesh and blood. It is the Father El Shaddai himself through the conduit of the Wisdom architect angel/logos who births them by his eternal/life/light transforming them inwardly from humans to Bnai Elohim. Children of El Shaddai -children of light, angel like humans with powers. Before we translate this next verse, we need to look at how John set up his grammatical structure: Joh 1:13 Joh 110 Joh 1:14 panta all things kosmos cosmos sarx flesh/humanity egeneto it made egeneto, it made egeneto it made

The Wisdom architect angel/logos made all things including sarx (humans) Joh 1:14a And the Wisdom architect angel/logos who made humans came and dwelt in one of those humans (Jesus) . It tabernacled among us.

Moses made a tabernacle a tent- and El Shaddai met with Moses there through the Wisdom architect angel/logos. When Solomon built the tabernacle/temple in Jerusalem the Wisdom architect angel/logos filled the temple with a cloud. Later, because of the sinfulness of the people during Ezekiels day, the angel departed Jerusalem. Ezekiel 11:23 The Wisdom, the architect angel/logos left Jerusalem and went and rested on the mountain east of the city (the mount of Olives). After the temple was destroyed by the Babylonians, a second temple was built, but the Wisdom, architect/angel logos did not come to the second temple. It waited until the body/tabernacle of Jesus was ready, and returned to tabernacle among the people when John baptized Jesus in the Jordan River. Jesus body was the Third Temple. Joh 1:32 John also testified, "I saw the Spirit/angel coming down from heaven like a dove, and it remained on Jesus. Joh 1:33 And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit/angel descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which will baptize with the Holy Ghost/angel of the Truth. Jesus said, in Luke 4:18 The Spirit/angel of El Shaddai is upon me, it has anointed me to preach the gospel Jesus never claimed to be the logos spirit/angel of El Shaddai, or any angel, or to be the father/god, or a God. He said he was a man and that the words coming from his mouth were not his own, and the miracles flowing through him were not being done by him. He repeatedly said there was one dwelling in him. Joh 10:38 the father (Angel of his presence) is in me. Joh 1:14b and we beheld the glory light of Wisdom, the architect angel/logos, the first born of El Shaddai shining in the person of Jesus the unique/sinless son of the Father, filling him with grace/mercy/love and truth. 2Co 4:6 Seeing it is El Shaddai, that said, Light shall shine out of darkness, who shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of El Shaddai in the face of Jesus the anointed one. Joh1:15 John excitedly declared This is the person I told you about (Jesus) who, although born after me, has the preeminent position. Joh 1:16 He will be the conduit for El Shaddais full truth (New Covenant Torah) of mercy/love/ and the New Covenant grace will replace the Old Covenant grace. Joh 1:17 The first Torah, given by Wisdom, the architect angel/logos, came through the conduit of Moses, but El Shaddais full truth/New Covenant Torah of mercy/love/grace has arrived through Jesus. Joh 1:18 No one has ever seen El Shaddai. But now Jesus, El Shaddais unique/sinless son, the one who is closest to El Shaddais heart, is revealing him to us. 1:19 The Israeli leaders/elohim in Jerusalem sent priests and temple helpers to ask John who he was. 1:20 He told them plainly, "I am not the Messiah." (CEV) 1:21 So they asked him, "Well then, are you Elijah?" He said, "I am not." "Are you the Prophet? (the one Moses said would come)" He answered, "No." (ISV) 1:22 finally, they said, "Who are you then? We have to give an answer to the ones who sent us. Tell us who you are!" (CEV) 10

1:23 John said, "I'm a voice crying out in the desert, 'Make the way for El Shaddai straight,' as the prophet Isaiah said." (GW) Translators note: As well as being invisible, El Shaddais voice cannot be heard by humans. John 5:37 You have neither heard His voice at any time, nor have you seen His form. What we can hear is what the Hebrews call his Bat Kol (echo). What John is saying is the same voice that echoed through Isaiah is echoing through me. I am not the awaited prophet, the return of Elijah, nor the messiah. I am just a mouth for the echoed voice of El Shaddai. He is saying get ready something big is coming. 1:24 Some of those questioning John were members of a separatist Jewish sect called Pharisees Translators note: The Pharisees (Perushim separated ones). They were laymen, who were brutally critical of their fellow Israelis who spoke Aramaic, or Greek, or had anything to do with non-Israelis. Jesus faulted them for adding many laws from the oral tradition to the Torah. Jesus said they were lovers of money. They taught that the soul was immortal. They believed in endless eternal punishment. Jesus described them as having an outward show of holiness, but inwardly they were greedy hypocrites. There were only about 6,000 at this time. They were the only sect to survive the Roman wars. Todays Rabbi are their descendants. 1:25 The Pharisees asked John, "Then why are you baptizing, if you are neither the Messiah, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet spoken of by Moses?" (ESV) 1:26 John answered them, "I am baptizing with water, but there is a man in Israel you have not yet met 1:27 hes the one I said was born after me, but has the preeminent role. He is so preeminent that I am not worthy to untie his sandals. Mat 3:11 he shall baptize you with the Holy Logos Wisdom angel, made of fire: 1:28 This inquisition by the Pharisees took place on the east bank of the Jordan river near the town where the ferry house was Bethabara The Next Day 1:29 The next day John saw Jesus approaching and he said Look here he comes El Shaddais lamb who will take away the sins of the kosmos. Translators note: John is foreshadowing that Jesuss death will serve as a sacrifice to remove the sins of the Kosmos. 1:30 John said This is the man Ive been talking about who has the preeminent role. Although I am the elder, he was chosen to be the Prince 1:31 At first I didnt know who it would be, but my ritual of immersing people in the river was all part of the plan so I could ordain him for his mission, and introduce him to the nation. 1:32 When I saw the logos/architect/Wisdom angel descending upon him as gently as a dove and remaining on him I knew he was the one. 1:33 The angel who sent me to immerse people in the river said, when you see the logos/architect Angel descending and remain upon a man, that man will be the one who will baptize people with another pure, holy angel/spirit. (The Logos Wisdom Angel) 1:34 It happened. I was there. I saw it, said John, and I tell you truly, Jesus is the Bnai Elohim, the new anointed ruler, the chosen one, the awaited prophet foretold by Moses, 11

the New High Priest, and human mediator/messenger of El Shaddai the Messiah. And the Next Day 1:35 John was standing talking with two of his students 1:36 He saw Jesus coming and again said, Here comes El Shaddais lamb. 1:37 When the two students heard this, they immediately went to Jesus and began walking behind him. 1:38 Jesus/ Yahoshua, turned and asked, Are you looking for something? They asked, Where are you lodging Adoni (Prince) ? 1:39 Come along and stay with me if youd like; it was late afternoon around 4:00 pm. 1:40 One of the two students was named Andreia (Greek for brave); he had a brother named Shimon (the one who hears) 1:41 Andreia quickly located his brother Shimon and said, We have found the Messiah/the anointed one/the prophet foretold by Moses. 1:42 That same afternoon, Andreia brought Shimon to see Jesus. When Jesus saw him he said, You have been called Shimon (the one who hears) the son of Yonah (the dove), but I am giving you a new name; you will be called Kefa (a Pebble/Peter). The Next Day 1:43 The next day, Jesus decided to go to the Galilee region. There he met Philippos (Greek for Horse whisperer); Jesus said to Philippos, "Come and learn from me." Translators Note: notice that so far all these first students have Greek names and Shimons Hebrew name is changed to an Aramaic/Syrian/Babylonian name -Kefa. Jesus seems to be deliberately saying this Gospel will be for Non-Israelis as well as Israelis. 1:44 Philippos, the horse whisperer, was from Bethsaida (the Fishing House), the hometown of Andreia and Kefa. 1:45 The horse whisperer immediately ran to Cana to find his friend Nathana-el the son of Ptolemy (Another Greek) and declared, We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Torah, the one all the prophets said was coming. His name is Jesus the son of Yosef from the village of Netzaret. Translators Note: where did Philippos get the idea that Jesus was the son of Yosef? He just met Jesus and Jesus must have introduced himself as the son of Joseph. In order to be a normal man and a true descendant of David, Jesus had to be born of Yosef. Later El Shaddai will claim him as his own and even later he will rebirth him from the dead as his first begotten human; the first of many that would follow him. 1:46 Nathanael asked, "Can anything good come from Netzaret?" Philippos answered, "Come and see." (CEV) Translators Note: Cana was only three hours from Netzaret and the people of Cana looked down on the Netzareans. The exact reason is not certain. The Netzareans rejected Jesus and when he announced he had come to end the slave trade, they tried to kill him, so it may have been an unsavory slave market. A recent excavation uncovered many bodies. 1:47 When Jesus saw Nathana-el coming with Philippos he said to Nathana-el, 12

Behold an Israeli who never lies. 1:48 Nathana-el the son of Ptolemy asked, How do you know about me? Jesus answered "Before Philippos called you, I saw you under the fig tree." Translators Note: We do not know what this expression about the fig tree meant, but it meant something powerful to Nathana-el for he immediately declares Jesus to be the Ben Elohim (Son of El Shaddai) and Melek Israel (king of Israel). 1:49 Nathana -el the son of Ptolemy said, "Rhabbi/master/teacher, you are the Ben Elohim, The king of Israel!" Translators Note: For two hundred years, beginning with the Maccabees, Israel had been ruled by usurpers, who bribed and killed their way to power. Nathana-el, like many in the land, was longing for the one foretold by Moses to come as a powerful king and restore peace and prosperity. Nathan-el was like a ripe fig ready to be harvested. Jesus must have smiled at the naivet of Nathan-el for he had not come to sit on Davids throne as the King of Israel but to sit on the throne in heaven at El Shaddais right hand (the true throne of David) and rule over the whole creation (except for El Shaddai of course). 1:50 Jesus asked, "Do you believe just because I told you I saw you when you were under the fig tree? You will see much greater things than this!" (GNB) 1:51 If you pay attention, You will see heaven standing open and El Shaddais angel/messengers going back and forth to minister to me, a mortal man. Chapter Two Alcoholic or Non-Alcoholic Wine 2:1 Three days later, Mary, the mother of Jesus, (with his brothers and sisters) were at a wedding feast in the village of Cana in Galilee. (CEV) 2:2 Jesus, and his four students (bearing Greek names), were also invited. Translators Note: A typical wedding lasted seven or eight days. Isaiah describes Galilee as a place of many gentiles and a land of darkness (Is.9). It was not however a remote backwater, but a cosmopolitan region filled with Greeks, Romans and many travelers coming and going and exchanging ideas. Jesuss students, with Greek names, were welcomed at the wedding. This did not sit well with the Pharisees in Jerusalem who opposed all mingling with Non-Israelis. They viewed the Galileans as traitors and half breeds, not much better than the Samaritans. Cana was a dangerous place for such a wedding for it was the home of the Zealots; extremely violent, Israeli fascists who were constantly ambushing Romans soldiers, and would just as quickly kill any Israeli who sympathized with non-Israelis. 2:3 When the tirosh ran out, Jesus' mother said to him, "They don't have any more tirosh." (ISV) Translators Note: Tirosh was a very expensive, pulpy grape juice. Since weddings lasted a week, it was customary to add more water to the juice as the week went on to make it last. The Gospel that Jesus taught is called new unfermented Tirosh New Wine (Lk.5:33).

This wedding may be more about his new teaching than a socially awkward moment. On one level Mary is saying Judaism has failed it has nothing more to offer. "They don't have any more tirosh." 2:3 Jesus replied: Dear Lady, is this our problem? Did we cause it? Besides, my hour has not arrived yet. Translators Note: He appears to be playing with her for he knew what he would do. In John 6:6 he does a similar thing to Philippos: He said this to test Philippos; actually he already knew what he would do. 2:5 His mother told the caterers to do whatever he asked. 2:6 Six stone water jars were there. They were used for Jewish purification rituals. Each jar held 18 to 27 gallons. (GW) Translators Note: ask yourself would Jesus, who was sinless, make 180 gallons of alcohol which kills brain cells, causes fights, and causes people to babble foolishly and fall to the ground in their own vomit? Common sense tell us this beverage was not the alcoholic Yayin but the non-alcoholic Tirsoh. Noah drank Yayin and was drunken in his tent" (Genesis 9:20). "come let us make our father drink Yayin and we will lie with him." (Genesis 19:30-38) spoken by the daughters of Lot. "Do not drink Yayin nor strong drink when you go into the tabernacle lest you die." (Leviticus 10-9-10). "They have given a boy for a harlot and sold a girl for Yayin that they might drink." (Joel 3:3) "Awake ye drunkards, weep and howl ye drinkers of Yayin." (Joel 1:5) "Yayin is a mocker , strong drink is a raging and whosoever is deceived by it is not wise." (Prov.20.1) "They assemble themselves for wheat and Yayin and they rebel against me." (Hosea 7:14) "Whoredom and Yayin ..take away the heart." (Hosea 4:11) "Damned are those that are at ease in Zion...that lie upon beds of ivorythat drink Yayin (Amos 6:6) "Be not among Yayin drinkers" (Prov. 23:20)

2:7 Jesus said to the caterers, Fill the water jars with more water. After many trips to the Well, they filled them up to the brim. 2:8 Then he said, Draw out a cupful, and take it to the Wedding Planner. 2:9 When the Wedding Planner had tasted the new tirosh, he did not know where it came from, (but the caterers who drew the water knew). The Wedding Planner called the bridegroom, 2:10 and said to him, Every man at the beginning serves the good juice; and as the feast progresses, serves the worst, but you have kept the best juice for the end. 2:11 This the first miracle Jesus did in Cana of the Galiee, and his students saw the first rays of the Shekinah/Glory/Kabod light of the Wisdom angel/architect shining from him and they became believers. Translators Note: Moses turned the water into blood and it meant funerals. Jesus turned the water into Juice and it meant a happy wedding. 14

After this 2:12 After this, he returned with his mother, and sisters and brothers to Kefa/Pebble/Peter and Andreias house in Capernaum (on the north end of the Sea of Galilee (Tiberias). They visited for only a few days. The Passover Feast in Jerusalem 2:13 It was time for the Passover so Jesus/Yahoshua, his family and students made the AliYah (went up) to Jerusalem. 2:14 Jesus found the ruling Sadducean Elohim vendors selling oxen and sheep and doves in the temple area (court of the gentiles), and the ruling Sadducean Elohim tax collectors/bankers changing money and selling slaves. 2:15 He braided some straw together and made a whip. With the whip, he drove the sheep, and the oxen, out of the court area and he overturned the bankers tables and drove them out. 2:16 He told those selling the doves, Take these things out of here! Do not make My Father's house a house of merchandise. 2:17 And his students remembered that it was written, "The zeal of Your house has consumed Me."( Psa. 69:9) (LITV) Translators Note: first, Jesus did no violence to the animals (whips are for control not to inflict pain). Second, he did no violence to the bankers. The whip was made of straw; it could sting but not injure. He may have done some slight property damage by tipping over the tables. Third, he did not come to reform Judaism or cleanse it. He came and ended animal sacrifices. He came and ended the financial tyranny of religion. He came an ended the temple. He came and ended the old covenant Torah. a New Covenant Torah had arrived, a new economy based on giving, not receiving, a new priesthood with a new high priest, with a commerce free new temple the human heart had arrived. Note whenever the evangelists tell this story they never accuse Jesus of anger. Hollywood makes this a wild tumultuous scene with Jesus railing and shouting, but in the Gospels he is controlled and knows exactly what he is doing. There is no hint of rage or anger. 2:18 Then the Jewish rulers/Elohim came to him and asked, What miracle will you show us to prove you had a right to cause this mayhem in the temple? 2:19 Jesus answered, Tear down this tabernacle/temple and in three days I will restore it. 2:20 Then the rulers/elohim said , It took 46 years to build this temple, are you saying you can rebuild it in three days? 2:21 Jesus was speaking about the sanctuary/tabernacle/temple of his body. Translators Note: Jesus usually spoke in parables and dark enigmatic sentences. Mat 13:34 Jesus used parables to tell all these things to the crowds; he would not say a thing to them without using a parable. 2:22 Later, when Jesus was raised from the dead, and came back to life, his students remembered what he said about the temple and his body and they believed the scripture and believed his words. 2:23 That year, during that the Passover festival in Jerusalem, when they saw the miracles that he performed, many people believed that hed been chosen as the anointed one/messiah. 15

2:24 Jesus however, put no trust in these believers. He understood the human heart 2:25 and didn't need anyone to tell him about what people want. He understood what humans were really like. Translators Note: It is no crime to be human and want prosperity, peace and happiness and adventure and even a little mischief, but that is humans at their most animal level. Of course miracles can make believers out of such low level people. Jesuss mission was to raise these brutish believers to a higher level; to give them angelic-like spirits operating on the plane of selfless love. Believing that Jesus is the messiah is not enough, if you have not received the indwelling Logos Wisdom Angel from El Shaddai, the Father. Its not rethinking we need, but rebirth. Sample Prayer: Jesus I believe you are the son of El Shaddai and my savior. I believe your blood initiated a New Covenant and washed away my sins at the cross. I believe El Shaddai raised you from the dead and wants to birth me into his kingdom today. Please send the Logos Wisdom angel to give me a new heart where you can dwell. Amen Chapter Three How to be Born of El Shaddai Each of us had an earth father. El Shaddai longs to adopt us from our earth fathers and rebirth us as his beloved children. So being born of El Shaddai is a two-step process; first adoption and then regeneration. 3:1 That night Nikodemos/Bonai, a Senator/Sage/Doctor of the Law/teacher of teachers/leader of the Sanhedrin, the Supreme Court an elohim (human ruler of Israel), came to see Jesus. 3:2 He said, Adoni/Prince, I know Adonai/El Shaddai is with you for I see him working in your words and deeds. What message do you have for us? 3:3 Jesus replied, You all must be born again, or you all will never be able to see the Kingdom of El Shaddai. 3:4 Bonai asked, How can a grown man be fathered again? Can he re-enter his mothers womb? Translators Notes: there are two births, one is physical, and one is a spirit-birth. Water is a symbol for El Shaddais words. Faith comes first by hearing these words. We are cleansed by the words. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. (John 15:3) When we are cleansed (by hearing and obeying the Gospel), El Shaddai births us by pouring the Logos Wisdom Angel into our bodies. Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new angel/spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my angel/spirit within you. (Ezek. 36:25-27) Behold, I will pour out my angel/ spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you. (Pro 1:23) 16

The word of El Shaddai on high is the fountain of wisdom. (Ecclesiasticus (from the Latin Vulgate 1: 5) The Wisdom/angel is poured forth like water. (Enoch 48:1A) In that day a fountain will be opened for the house of David and for the inhabitants of Jerusalem, for sin and for impurity. (Zech 13:1) With joy you shall draw water from the wells of salvation. (Is 12:3) Joh 4:14 But whosoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

El Shaddai is a spirit. He is the father of all spirits. Some are fallen (elohim demons). Some are messengers to men (angels). Once you hear the words of the Father, when your heart repents, and is cleansed by them, your body becomes a vessel for the logos/wisdom/presence of El Shaddai/Angel to enter. It re-fathers you by spiritually begetting you. It births you now into the Kingdom of Jesus and you become an heir to all the promises in the Bible. Translators Note: because Jesus was sinless, he was not re-fathered when the Logos/Wisdom angel entered him. He was not re-fathered until El Shaddai raised him from the dead. Act 13:33 El Shaddai hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee. For the rest of us we are already dead in sins and when we turn from sins to El Shaddai and confess that Jesus is our savior and that El Shaddai raised him from the dead and ask Jesus to come into our hearts, thats when we are raised from our state of spiritual death and are born again by the Logos/ word of El Shaddai angel and the breath of El Shaddai. 3:5 Jesus said, Listen as if your life depended upon it, unless one is born of the water (El Shaddais words) and the Logos/angel/spirit he/she can never enter El Shaddais Kingdom. 3:6 That which is born of humans is human and that which is born of the Logos/spirit/angel is spirit. 3:7 Do not look so surprised Bonai. Father breathes and his breath carries his words and those who hear them and obey them, become spirit born. 3:8 The Logos Spirit (Angel of his Presence) flows where it wants, and you are hearing its voice right this minute, but you are unaware from where the voice comes, or to where it returns. 3:9 Bonai was astonished and asked, How can this be possible? 3:10 Jesus asked, Bonai you are a leader of the nation and do you mean to say you do not understand this fundamental truth of the scriptures? 3:11 I have experienced it, but whenever I try to explain it to you leaders, you cannot seem to understand it. If I tell you 3:12 this is something you can experience now on the earth, you cannot seem to grasp it. If you cannot grasp earthly things, how will you grasp the higher things I learned when I was taken up to heaven? 3:13 El Shaddai has not taken any of you up to heaven, but he took me. I have ascended and have returned with gifts -heavenly revelations. 3:13 No (other) man hath ascended up to heaven, but me and I came down from 17

heaven, even me a mortal man. Translators Note: some translations add the phrase Which is in heaven, however it is not in the original manuscripts and has been added. When was Jesus taken to heaven? She gave birth to a son, a male child, who will rule all the nations with an iron scepter. And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne. (Rev 12:5) This tells us that as a child Jesus was taken to heaven. Who hath ascended up into heaven, and descended? (Psalm 30:4) Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive: thou hast received gifts for men. (Psa 68:18) He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might complete all things. (Eph 4:10) 3:14 When I, the Messiah, a mortal man am hanged in a tree, then my teachings will bring restoration and healing, just as Moses lifted up a brass Saraph (angelic creature) on a pole and his followers were healed and protected from the attacking venomous serpents by gazing upon it, 3:15 Everyone who keeps believing in me, the Messiah, will have eternal life. Who Loves You? 3:16 El Shaddai loves humans so much that he commissioned his unique/one-of-a-kind son So that whoever believes in him will not be extinguished, but have eternal/immortal life. Translators Note: Although this word monogenes is often translated only begotten, such a translation is misleadingThe word in Greek was used of an only child (a son [Luke 7:12, 9:38] or a daughter [Luke 8:42]). It was also used of something unique (only one of its kind) such as the mythological Phoenix (1 Clement 25:2). From here it passes easily to a description of Isaac (Heb 11:17 and Josephus, Ant. 1.13.1 [1.222]) who was not Abrahams only son, but was one-of-a-kind because he was the child of the promise. Thus the word means one-of-a-kind and is reserved for Jesus in the Johannine literature of the NT. While all Christians are children of God ( , tekna qeou), Jesus is Gods Son in a unique, one-of-a-kind sense. The word is used in this way in all its uses in the Gospel of John (1:14, 1:18, 3:16, and 3:18). Retrieved from the Internet
Aug.2011 http://net.bible.org/#!bible/John+3:14 Heb 11:17 By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son. We know Abrahams first son was Ishmael and later in life he had others. Gen 25:2

Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah 3:17 Jesus said, Father did not commission his son to condemn humans, but to save them. Whoever keeps believing in him will not be condemned on the Judgment Day, but whoever rejects him, already wears the mark of the condemned. Translators Note: faith in Greek is Pistis. Unfortunately a tradition has emerged in Christianity which does not get to the full meaning of Pistis. By the 21st Century most Christians believe Salvation Faith is a purely mental process. The preacher asks, Do you believe Jesus is your Lord and Savior? If they say Yes, they are told, You are now saved, you have eternal life now and eternal life in the world to come), and you can never lose it.

18

Pistis has five components 1) A mental acceptance: as in I believe you. I believe it to be true. 2) Love: Faith works by love. 3) Union: To believe on his name means to unite with him. 4) Obedience: Why do you call me Adoni, Adoni and not do the things I said to do? 5) Inner Confidence in times or trials: Why are you so fearful you (lackers of faith)? So Saving faith is not just mental. 3:19 This is why people are condemned: The eternal life light came into the world. Yet, people loved the dark rather than the eternal life light because their actions were evil. (GW) 3:20 Whoever does vile things hates the light and tries to put it out before it exposes them. 3:21 However, whoever actively does truth and does good, loves the light and gladly comes to it, so that the truth of his, or her, deeds can be established. 3:22 Whoever believes (unites with, loves, and obeys) the son, will have eternal -life, but whoever disobeys (ho apeithon) the son, the displeasure of El Shaddai will rest upon them. Translators Note: Jesus equates truth with doing. You dont believe truth, truth is something you do. The KJV version says the wrath of God abides upon them. It is inconsistent with everything Jesus taught of about his father to think he is a wrathful being. If a moth throws itself into a burning candle we would not describe the candle as wrathful. If some wicked person throws himself at the burning love of the father and is destroyed, it does not make the father wrathful. Furthermore, if you are to imitate the Father, and you think he is wrathful, then you will become a wrathful person. All we have to do is look at the history of the mainline churches and we see them burning heretics, killing enemies, fighting in wars, beating their children, spouses and students. Having a wrathful God, they become the Children of Wrath instead of the Children of Mercy. Next, Jesus and his Students set up Camp near John on the Jordan River 3:22 After Leaving Jerusalem, Jesus family headed north to Netzeret, and he, and his students went east to the Yardan River near Einayim Shalem where John, was and set up a camp on the river. Jesus spent some time there ministering to the inhabitants and his students water baptized them. 3:23 There was a lot of water there and many people were still going to John to be baptized by him. 3:24 John had not been arrested yet. 3:25 One day, some rogues among the Israelis tried to stir up some division. They began a heated argument with some of John the Baptizers followers about baptism. Translators Note: not much has changed if you look at the History of Christianity; it pains me to see a lot of blood has been shed over this topic of Baptism. 3:26 The rogues came to John and said, Adoni/master/teacher/Elohim, remember when you were on the east bank of the Jordan, near Bethabara, and you told us about that special, chosen man? Well he is camped nearby and everyone is flocking to him and getting baptized by his students. 3:27 John said, All my success has come from El Shaddai and all his success comes from El Shaddai. Theres nothing anyone can do to get heavenly things. They must be given to you. 19

3:28 You yourselves heard me say I am not the Messiah, but was sent ahead of him to prepare the way. 3;29 A bride marries a bridegroom, but the best man is filled with joy to see his friend get a bride. I am the like best man and Jesus is like the bridegroom. Just to hear his voice fills me with joy. 3:30 Jesus is the Prince and his power must grow while mine must fade. 3:31 A man like me who has never left the earth can only tell you of things down below here on the earth, but Jesus was transported to heaven. He has superior knowledge and can tell us heavenly things. Translators Note: When was Jesus transported to heaven? Revelation 12:4- and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. This is a scene where Jesus as a child was taken to heaven. Eph 4:10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens. So as a child Jesus ascended and later descended with the New Covenant Torah and his mission to take away the sins of the world with his shed blood, and teaching people how to be rebirthed. Sample Prayer: Jesus I repent of my sins, I believe you are the anointed one of a kind son of El Shaddai who rebirthed you when he raised you from the dead. I believe your blood shed on the cross washed away my sins and brought the world a new Covenant based on Grace and not punishment. Please send the Spirit that rebirths us into the Fathers kingdom. I believe when you do this I will receive a new heart for you to live in and I will immediately be transferred to the Kingdom of light where I will be blessed with every blessing and protected from sin. I will study and obey your New Torah as found in the New Testament. Amen 3:32 John said, Here is a man who has been to heaven and conversed with El Shaddai, but Although crowds flock to Him, hardly any one believes his words enough to act on them. 3:33 But those who hear and act on his words are lashing themselves to him and also to the one, true, holy, God -El Shaddai The Eloah of Tsebaoth (The supreme God of the Spirit army) 3:34 This one/Jesus, whom El Shaddai has sent, speaks the words of El Shaddai and has received the greatest indwelling of the logos/architect/wisdom/ angel in its fullness. 3:35 The father loves this son and has placed all things in his hand. 3:36 Whoever has faith, believes/loves/and obeys the son has eternal life now, but whoever disobeys the son, who rejects him, will not see eternal life, they will be unhappy to see how see El Shaddais love interacts with sin. Translators note: most translators translate orge as wrath or anger and have perpetuated the belief in an angry God. El Shaddai is not an angry Judge in the sky. El Shaddais passionate desire is that all people become perfected, but those who stubbornly resist El Shaddai will be like the moths to the flame. Chapter Four The Samaritan Woman at the Well 4:1 4:2 When Jesus Yahoshua learned about the rogues disputing and questioning John, about his students baptizing, he decided to move. It should be noted that Jesus did not water baptize anyone. 20

Translators Note: Jesus was not involved in Water baptism for he had been ordained to bring the baptism of the Spirit to people. Water baptism was symbolic of a repentant heart. The Spirit baptism takes out the brutish human repentant heart and replaces it completely with a loving, angelic-like heart fit to be the temple of El Shaddai, and Jesus, and the Wisdom angel, and the Angel of the Truth. Once this spirit birth has occurred, then it is fitting, and recommended that you do find a Christian to water baptize you as a public statement that the inner rebirth has taken place. 4:3 4:4 So they left the Judean country side and started north to the Galilee region. The shortest route passed through the territory of the Samaritans.

Translators Note: There was bad blood between the Israelis and the Samaritans. The Samaritans say that in the days of Eli, tenth Century BC, Eli usurped the priesthood, stole the ark, and moved the tabernacle set up by Joshua to Mount Ebal, and that only the Samaritans are the true children of Israel. The Israelis say this is a fantasy and that the Samaritan are fallen Israeli idol worshippers who committed the unforgiveable sin of marrying with Greeks/Syrians/Babylonians and are a race of half breed mongrels pretending to be the true Israel. 4:5 4:6 4:7 4:8 4:9 4:10 4:11 4:12 4:13 4:14 and on his way he came to the town of Sychar/modern Nablous. It was near the field that Jacob had long ago had given to his son Joseph. (CEV) Jesus was tired and sat near a well, (a cistern that the patriarch Jacob owned 2000 years earlier created from a spring, or fountain). A Samaritan woman (named Photini), came to the well to draw some water and Jesus asked her, Would you please draw me some water? The students had gone into the village to buy food. The woman was surprised (for Israeli men, especially Princes, never spoke to despised Samaritans). She said, Is it possible an Israeli Prince is speaking to a Samaritan woman, and asking for a gift of water? He replied, Father has a better gift than your gift of water. If you knew who you were speaking with, you would ask for the real gift: eternal living water. Adoni, she said, you do not have a bucket and the well is deep (22.86 meters, or 75 feet), where will you get this eternal living water? Are you greater than our father Jacob who gave us this well and dug it for his family and flocks? Jesus said, Whoever drinks from Jacobs well will get thirsty again, but whoever drinks the eternal living water I give, will never be thirsty again, for my water will become a living well within them bubbling up to impart in the age to come eternal Life. 4:15 The word/ logos angel of El Shaddai on high is the fountain of wisdom. Ecclesiasticus (from the Latin Vulgate) 1: 5 The Wisdom/angel is poured forth like water. Enoch 48A:1 all the thirsty drank, and were filled with the wisdom/angel, having their habitation with the righteous, the elect, and the holy. (Enoch 48:1) O kind Prince, she said, please give me this eternal living water so I will never have to come here and draw water again. 21

4:16 4:17 4:18

I will, he said, but first go and bring your husband (Baal) to me. I have no Baal (husband). Well spoken. You have answered truthfully, he said. You have had five (Baalim) and the Baal you are with now is not your husband either.

Translators Note: He appears to be testing her to see if she worships Baal, the Bull God, whose name means husband, for Samaria had long been the center of Bull worship. 4:19 Adoni, she said, you are indeed a prophet. 4:20 Please answer a question that has long troubled me for many seasons. You Israelis say that we must worship El Shaddai in Jerusalem (on Mount Moriah), but our priests tell us we must worship him on this mountain here (Mt. Gerizim). Which one is the correct mountain? Translators Note: The Samaritans followed Moses so if this woman was hopping from husband to husband they would have stoned her for adultery. If however her husbands had died, or divorced her, they would not. However her sixth man is problematic. If he belonged to another woman, they would have stoned her. So we can imply that he is not a married man. The story doesnt give us enough information to come to a correct conclusion, but in that the Samaritans listened to and believed this woman, I find it hard to believe she had been five times divorced, and was a despised outcast. My educated guess is that she had previously participated in 5 Baal cults and was currently in a 6th Baal cult. What makes me think that the questioning about a husband with the woman at the well is really about what Deity she worships, seems to be confirmed by the fact that she skips right over any implied accusations of sexual adultery, or divorces, and takes the conversation straight to the worship level and seems to be asking him isnt the Eloah of the Israelis, El, the bull god that we worship here and you worship on Mt. Moriah? Jesus says, No. You Samaritans and many Jews are following El, the Bull God, but El Shaddai is not the Bull god. El Shaddai is a spirit. (He is incorporeal; he is invisible and has no body, or form. He requires no sacrifices on mountains 4:21 Jesus replied, the hour has arrived when people no longer need to go to mountains, but can worship El Shaddai in their hearts. 4:22 You have no idea what you are doing when you worship. Your Samaritan priests have blocked their ears to the truth about El Shaddai by rejecting the prophets. At least the Israelis still understand salvation, even though they do not live the truth, and killed the prophets, they at least have preserved the message of the coming salvation. 4;23 Indeed, the time is coming, and it is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth. The Father is looking for people like that to worship him. (GW) 4:24 El Shaddai is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. Acts 7:48 But the Most High does not dwell in temples made by hand Act 17:25 Neither is he worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed anything, 4:25 The woman said, It is all so confusing. I wish the Messiah were here for he will make everything clear to us.

22

Translators Note: She expects the Messiah to be her daddy. The Jews both in the North and the South were looking for a daddy Messiah who would kill the tormenting gentiles and give them peace and prosperity. But Jesus makes it clear to her that joining religious groups will not make her spiritual. She needs to get out of all those groups and rituals and get alone with El Shaddai her true daddy and worship him in private. 4:26 Jesus replied, The Messiah is here. He is speaking to you. I am the Messiah. 4:27 Just then, his students returned with the food. They were amazed to see him speaking with a Samaritan woman, but no one said a word. 4:28 Photini left her water jug by the well (for the Apostles to drink), and ran into the village. 4:29 She ran up and down every street crying, Come and see a man at the well. He spoke to me and told me everything I ever did. He said he is the Messiah. Come and see. If this woman was regarded as a lewd woman, or an adulteress, the people would not have believed her. 4:30 The Samaritans began coming out of the city to the well. 4:31 Meanwhile his students were puzzled when he refused to eat. 4:32 Do not worry, he said, I am getting fed. 4:33 They began to wonder if someone from the village had brought him some food. 4:34 He said, I am fed by doing Fathers work. It energizes and nourishes me. 4:35 A large crowd was emerging from the village and Jesus said, Most say it will be four more months until the harvest, but look the harvest is coming to us. Are you ready to work? 4:36 The person who harvests the crop is already getting paid. He is gathering grain for eternal life. So the person who plants the grain and the person who harvests it are happy together. (GW) 4:37 In this respect the saying is true: 'One person plants, and another person harvests.' 4:38 I have sent you to harvest a crop you have not worked for. Other people have done the hard work, and you have followed them in their work." 4:39 The crowd came because of the words of the woman saying he told me everything I ever did, but when they heard him speak, they became believers. 4:40 They begged him to stay and teach them, and so they stayed in Sychar two days. 4:41 Then many of the Samaritans who came to hear him became believers 4:42 and said to the woman, It is not that we did not trust you, but now that we have heard him for ourselves, we know he is the Messiah, the Savior of the world. 4:43 Jesus and his students spent two days in the village and then continued on their way to the Galilee region. 4:44 The proverb that a prophet will be rejected by his own people proved true in Judea where he was rejected, but it was different among the Non-Israelis in Samaria and in the Galilee, where he was greeted as the messiah, 4:45 and even among many Israelis in the Galilee who had seen him performing miracles in Jerusalem at the Passover feast. 4:46 When they neared Cana where Jesus had turned water into Tirosh, they were approached by an Elohim/ruler from the court of Antipas. 4:47 The King had heard that Jesus was coming from Jerusalem to the Galilee and implored him to come down to his house and heal his son who was dying. 4:48 Jesus said to him, You Galileans are difficult, unless you see miracle after miracle you wont believe. The Samaritans believed without seeing miracles. 4:49 The ruler said to him Adoni/master/teacher/Elohim please come down or my child will 23

die. 4:50 Jesus told him, "Go home. Your son will live." The man believed what Jesus told him and left. (GW) 4:51 On his way home his servants met him with the news, "Your boy is going to live!" 4:52 So the king asked them at what hour the boy had begun to recover, and they told him, "The fever left him yesterday at one o'clock in the afternoon." (ISV) 4:53 The boy's father realized that at one o'clock the day before, Jesus had told him, "Your son will live!" So the man and everyone in his family put their faith in Jesus. (CEV) 4:54 This was the second miracle Jesus did in the Galilee, and both happened near Cana. Chapter 5 The Healing at the Mercy Pool Translators Note: from here on out Jesus will be addressing crowds. Bear in mind that whenever he spoke to crowds he spoke in parables. So weigh carefully his words for parables are always symbolic and are not to be taken literally. Mat 13:34 Jesus used parables to tell all these things to the crowds; he would not say a thing to them without using a parable. 5:1 Four months later, Jesus and his students made another Aliyah to Jerusalem for the feast of Shavuot (the Spring Harvest Festival) Translators Note: the text does not name the feast, but since Jesus in the last scene says it is four months until the harvest, it follows logically that his is the Spring Harvest Feast known as Shavuot (50th) The grain harvest lasts for seven weeks in Israel and the first grain to ripen is barley and it is cut at the Passover. The last grain to ripen is wheat and it closed the spring harvesting. Shavuot took place 50 days after the first Shabbat of Passover. In the largely agrarian society of ancient Israel, Jewish farmers would tie a reed around the first ripening fruits from each of these species in their fields. At the time of harvest, the fruits identified by the reed would be cut and placed in baskets woven of gold and silver. The baskets would then be loaded on oxen whose horns were gilded and laced with garlands of flowers, and who were led in a grand procession to Jerusalem. As the farmer and his entourage passed through cities and towns, they would be accompanied by music and parades.

Tradition says that 50 days after the Israelis fled Egypt, Moses received the Torah on Mount Sinai. There is no scriptural proof and no mention of it until the 3rd century A.D. It has a definite poetic appeal for in this scene we see Jesus bringing the New Covenant Torah based on mercy to the mercy pool, and the old covenant Torah keepers wanting to kill him with no mercy. 5:2 As they were passing the House of Mercy pool (Beth-zatha) with its five shelters for the infirm, they saw many sick people, 5:3 the blind, the lame, the withered and the paralyzed. 5:4 According to an old superstition, every so often, an angel would roil the waters and the 24

first person in the pool received healing. 5:5 Jesus saw a man lying at the edge of the pool on a mat. Someone had carried him to the pool every day for thirty-eight years. 5:6 Jesus felt compassion for him and asked him, Do you wish to be healed? 5:7 Adoni, said the man, I have no one to help me into the pool. Every time the water stirs, someone always gets into the pool before me. 5:8 Jesus said to him, Stand up, pick up your mat and walk. 5:9 Immediately the healing took place. The man picked up his mat and began to walk. It was a Shabbat, 5;10 and when some rogues saw him carrying his mat, they said. It is unlawful for you to carry your mat on Shabbat. 5:11 He replied, The man who healed me, told me to pick up my mat and walk. 5:12 Which man was that? they asked. 5;13 The healed man looked around, but there were so many people that he could not see Jesus. 5;14 A little while later, Jesus found him and said, Look at you, you are completely well. Go now and sin no more or something worse might happen to you. My son, if you have sinned, do so no more, and for your past sins pray to be forgiven. Flee from sin as from a serpent that will bite you if you go near it; its teeth are lion's teeth, destroying the lives of men. (Sirach 21: 1) 5:15 The man who had been healed then went to the rogue Israeli leaders and said he knew where to find the man that had healed him. 5:16 Soon a crowd surrounded Jesus shouting murderous words at him inciting each other to kill him for working/healing on a Shabbat day. 5:17 Jesus spoke to them saying My father does miracles on the Shabbats and so I do miracles on the Shabbats. 5:18 This saying made the rogue Elohim/rulers all the more determined to kill him; (In their sin-clouded eyes) not only had he broken the Sabbath law, but he had said that El Shaddai was his own Father and in this way had made himself equal with El Shaddai. 5:19 Jesus answered them, "Listen carefully: the Son can do nothing on his own; he does only what he sees his Father doing. What the Father does, the Son also does. Translators Note: I will say it again; Jesus was a conduit for the father. The father sent the angel to work through Jesus. Jesus was not a puppet. He had free will, but he willed to do the fathers will. 5:20 Furthermore just as the father has the power to raise the dead, his human son now has the Power to give life to whomever he chooses. 5:21 For the father/El Shaddai loves his human son and is showing him his miracles. The Father will show him even greater miracles so much so that you will be stunned. 5:22 You all think El Shaddai is a judge, but he will put no one on trial. However the son will put everyone on trial. Translators Note: Jesus said he was not sent to condemn people, but to save them
(John 3:17). Later he will say that although he himself will not be the Judge at the

trial, the words he spoke will be the Judge. John 12:48 Those who reject me by not accepting what I say, have a judge appointed for them. The words that I have spoken will judge them on the last day. (GW) 25

5:23 The Father wants all people to honor the Son as much as they honor him. When anyone refuses to honor the Son, that is the same as refusing to honor the Father who sent him. (CEV) 5:24 Listen carefully, I tell you for certain that everyone who hears/obeys my message and has faith in the one who sent me/El Shaddai, has eternal life (now) and will never be condemned. They have already passed from death to life. (CEV) 5:25 Listen very carefully to what I am saying: the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. Until one is born again one is considered dead. Col 2:13 And you, being dead in your sins This is the dawning of a new era, and those that are spiritually dead who hear/obey the words of Jesus will be revived and shall live forever. And the time will come when all in their graves on the Judgment Day shall hear his voice calling them to a resurrection of joy or sorrow. For those who died prior to having an opportunity to hear the Gospel, they will hear it on the Judgment Day when all asleep in the grave will be awakened by the voice of Jesus calling them to joy or shame. 5:26 For just as the Father has life in himself, so also he has granted the Son to have life in himself. 5:27 The father has deputized his human son to reign as a human Elohim/ruler/ for he is the chosen son of Adam -ben Adam the messiah-. Translators Note: the rogue rulers/Elohim of Israel have charged Jesus with making himself equal to the Father/El Shaddai. If you listened carefully to his rebuttal he states several times that he is a powerless human, but clearly says he is the messiah, the human representative of El Shaddai, and they should be careful not to dishonor him. He refers to himself as the human son of El Shaddai, ( the rulers of Israel were called the sons of God). In his closing argument, he calls himself a son of Adam, a mortal man. They did not listen to him because as Matthew Henry said, The word of God either enlarges you, or enrages you. 5:27 Do not look so astonished to think that El Shaddai has done so much for a man, for on the Judgment Day all of humanity, asleep in the dust 5:28 shall hear this mans voice calling them back to life; 5:29 some who have done good to the resurrection of eternal life and others to the resurrection of the condemned. 5:30 "I can do nothing on my own authority; I judge only as El Shaddai tells me, so my judgment is right, because I am not trying to do what I want, but only what he who sent me wants. (GNB) 5:31 According to the Mosaic Torah a mans testimony about himself is inadmissible. 5:31 I have many witnesses: the father is my first witness and I know his testimony is true. 5:32 My second witness is John, the one who was baptizing. 5:33 You rulers interrogated him and found him to be sincere, unambitious and truthful. He 26

identified me as the messiah. 5:34 I really dont need a human witness, but you do, thats why I mention John, so that you may be saved. 5:35 John was a lamp and a light, and you enjoyed his brightness for a season. 5:36 I have many other witnesses greater than John. My miracles are my witnesses. Father used me as a conduit for his many miracles and they testify that I was sent by the father. 5:37 But none of you ruler/elohim believe the Father sent me. Despite all he has done to reveal me to you, none of you have ever heard his voice, nor seen his form. 5:38 And none of you have his logos/architect/wisdom/angel abiding in you or you would recognize that he sent me. 5:39 In vain, you frantically dig into the scriptures thinking the words and letters have some magic to give you eternal life. They are my final witnesses for they point to me-the one who can give you eternal life. 5:40 BUT YOU REFUSE TO COME TO ME FOR ETERNAL LIFE. 5:41 You refuse to come because, unlike me, you want approval from your colleagues. 5:42 And you refuse to come because you do not love El Shaddai; his love is far from your hearts. 5:43 I have been authorized by my Father, but you reject me. If someone else comes promoting his own name, you will accept him. 5:44 How can you possibly believe as long as you live for the approval of your corrupt colleagues? The only approval that matters is that of the Father. 5:45 I am not here to prosecute, or accuse you, there is someone however who will, he is the one you claim to obey -Moses. He foretold my coming and commanded you to follow me, so he will be your accuser. 5:46 If you had only believed and obeyed him, you would follow me. 5:47 If you dont believe and obey his writings, you will not believe or obey my words either. Moses wrote in the Torah that El Shaddai said: I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto you, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words, which he shall speak in my name, I will be the revenger. (Deut 18:18-19) Translators Note: Moses says the Messiah will be a human birthed by a Jew, so that nullifies the story about Mary conceiving by the Holy Ghost. El Shaddai chose the human Jesus as the temple for his angel and after he died begot him as a spirit man the first to rise from the dead into the kingdom. Since we are different than Jesus and are all dead in sins, El Shaddai doesnt have to wait for us to die but can beget us today into his kingdom. Sample Prayer: El Shaddai I am dead in sin doing what I dont want to do. Please birth me into your Kingdom now so I can learn to love and obey you. I pray this in Jesus name and by faith I believe it. Thanks you and I praise you. Chapter 6 Jesus Sails to the Land of the Non-Israelis 6:1 After this encounter in Jerusalem during the Fall Harvest Feast, Jesus went to Lake Tiberias (The Sea of Galilee) and sailed with his students to the Eastern shore where the Non-Israelis lived. 27

6:2 He passed the winter there and was daily performing miracles of healing. 6:3 One Spring day, as he sat instructing his students on a mountainside, a large multitude came to him; many had seen his miracles and brought others to see him. 6:4 It was that time of Spring when the Passover Festival was again drawing near. Translators Note: this would have been a mixed crowd of Israelis, Syrians, Romans, and Greeks: some from as far away as Damascus and even Babylon. Jesus asked Philippos, Where can we buy food for these people? Jesus was testing Philippos for he knew what he was going to do. Philippos answered, It would cost a years wages to just to give everyone a snack. Andreias said, I know where there is a lad with five loaves of Barley bread, and two salted fish, but that is about it. 6:10 Then Jesus commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass; there were about five thousand men, (besides women and children). 6:11 Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks to El Shaddai, and distributed it to the people who were sitting there. He did the same with the fish, and they all had as much as they wanted. 6:12 When he told the students to collect the scraps, 6:13 there were twelve baskets full of leftovers. 6:14 Seeing this miracle, the people there said, "Surely this is the Prophet Moses said was coming. 6:15 When Jesus perceived that all of them (including his own students) were about to rush him and proclaim him their king, he slipped away up the mountain alone and hid himself. Translators Note: Jesus had greater things in mind then liberating the Israelis. He knew if they took him by force and marched him in an army against the Romans, his mission to liberate humanity would fail. Humans dont need better governments, they need new hearts and a new angel/spirit within that births them into the Kingdom. 6:16 At sunset, the students went down to the shore of the lake as ordered. 6:17 They got into a ship and headed towards Capernaum; it was dark and Jesus was not with them. 6:18 A storm wind began to blow, the sea swelled, and tumultuous waves rose up. 6:19 They lowered their sail and had been rowing hard for about four strenuous, frightening hours through lightning and thunder. Then in the midst of the storm, they saw Jesus walking on the water. He kept coming closer to the boat, and they were terrified. 6:20 He said to them, It is I do not be afraid. 6:21 They were so relieved as he climbed into boat, and then in a blink, the boat was safely at the port in Capernaum. The Following Day 6:22 The following day when the multitude, who had been fed, began looking for Jesus, they noticed his boat was gone. They were told that he definitely was not onboard it when it left. 6:23 Those who could, got into boats and ships, which had come over before from the city of Tiberias to hear Jesus preach, and they all sailed to Capernaum. 6:24 And when they came ashore they found Jesus and asked, 6:25 Adoni/Prince/teacher/Elohim when did you get here? 6:26 He replied, Listen very carefully to what I am about to say. You did not follow me to learn 28 6:5 6:6 6:7 6:8 6:9

about El Shaddais (Kingdom), but you followed me because you saw miracles and I fed you, and now your bellies are empty, and you want another free meal. 6:27 Do not spend your lifes energy in pursuit of food which feeds only the body and then leaves. Spend your life and energy in pursuit of spiritual food which leads to eternal life. This spiritual food only comes from the anointed one for that is the food the father ordained him to deliver. Translators Note: it is important to notice how the rest of this teaching is being set up. It starts with real food on the other side of the lake. Then Jesus tells them to seek spiritual food. The he will talk about the spiritual and physical food of Moses manna and the Torah-, and then he will talk about the food he has to offer. He will compare his teaching to manna, but then take it to a shocking level of cannibalism and then end by saying, Im not talking about eating flesh and drinking blood; Ive been talking all along about spiritual food, physical food profits nothing. The reason I mention this before you read it, is because Christians have been tripping over this teaching for 2,000 years and getting it completely backwards. 6:28 "What exactly does El Shaddai want us to do?" the people asked. (CEV) 6:29 El Shaddai wants you to put your faith in the man he chose and sent. 6:30 They replied, "What miracle will you perform so that we may see it and put our faith in you? What will you do? 6:31 For example, when our ancestors were in the wilderness, Moses gave them manna. It happened just as the Scriptures say, 'He gave them bread from heaven to eat. Can you out do Moses? 6:32 Listen exactly to what I am about to say. Moses did not give your ancestors bread. El Shaddai gave them bread 6:33 and now he is offering you a better heavenly bread. El Shaddais bread coming down now will give people eternal life. 6:34 The crowd said, Adoni/Prince/teacher/Elohim gives us this bread and dont ever stop. Translators Note: Jesus is saying El Shaddai is the source of eternal life. He has placed it in me. I am now the dispenser of eternal life. 6:35 And Jesus said to them, I am the bread of life: whoever comes to me shall never hunger; and he that believes on me shall never thirst. 6:36 But I can see that even after seeing me, and the miracles, some of you will not believe. 6:37 However all that the Father gives to me shall come to me, and anyone who comes to me I will never cast out. 6:38 For after I ascended to heaven, I descended not to do my own will but to do the will of him who sent me. 6:39 And this is the Father's will which has sent me, that of all those which he has given me I should lose nothing, but should raise them up again at the last day. 6:40 For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks/sees/ the Son and believes/unites with/loves him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day." (ESV) 6:41 The mixed multitude from the non-Israeli side of the lake, and the citizens of Capernaum began to grumble because Jesus said he was the bread from heaven. 6:42 Someone from Capernaum said isnt this the Jesus from Netzaret? Isnt he Yosefs boy. We know his mom and dad. How can he say he came down from heaven? 6:43 Jesus said, let go of your criticism. 6:44 None of you can come to me until the Father draws you. Ill still be standing ready until the 29

Last day. 6:45 It is written in the prophets, They shall all be taught by El Shaddai. So then everyone who hears and learns from the Father will come to me. 6:46 Not that anyone has seen the Father, save he which is of God (me), he has seen the Father. 6:47 Listen very closely to what I am saying to you, whoever believes in me has everlasting life. Translators Note: believing is not just a mental activity. If you truly believe, we will see some godly activity in your speech and life. 6:48 I will say it again, I am the bread of eternal life. Translators Note: I want you to think carefully about the meaning of bread as it is used in the Gospel. It means teaching. Mat 16:11 Why don't you understand that I wasn't talking to you about bread? Watch out for the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees!" Then they understood that he didn't say to watch out for the yeast in bread, but to watch out for the teachings of the Pharisees and Sadducees. Please dont think Jesus is speaking literally when he says he is bread and his body is food and his blood is drink. Dont forget whenever he addressed the crowds Mat 13:34 Jesus used parables to tell all these things to the crowds; he would not say a thing to them without using a parable. So all these I am statements are not literal but symbolical: John 8:12 I am the Light. Was he a beam of light? No! John 10:9 I am the Door. Was he a literal door? No! John 10:14 I am the good shepherd. He was a carpenter, not a shepherd. John 12:25 I am the resurrection. Is he the act of rising from the dead? No! John 14:6 I am the truth. Truth is a word for something abstract isnt it? John 15:1 I am the true vine. Was he a plant? No! So when he starts talking about eating his flesh and drinking his blood please dont imagine, like the rogues in the crowd, that he is speaking literally. 6:49 Your ancestors ate manna in the wilderness and they all eventually died. 6:50 If anyone eats the heavenly eternal bread (teaching) that I bring, they will never die. 6:50 I am the heavenly eternal Bread whoever eats this/my bread (teaching) will have eternal life. Translators Note: the Sinaitic Palimpsest,of Saint Catherine's Monastery, Mount Sinai late 4th century has the word my instead of this. 6:51 I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of my bread, he/she will live forever. And the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh." (ESV) 6:52 The mixed crowd erupted in strivings, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat? 6:53 Then Jesus said unto them, Quiet! Quiet! Listen, unless you gnaw on the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, you have no eternal life in you. 6:54 Whosever gnaws on my flesh, and drinks my blood, has eternal life; and I will raise her/him up on the last day/the Judgment Day. 6:55 For my flesh is food indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. 6:56 Whoever eats my flesh, and drinks my blood dwells in me, and I in them.

30

Translators Note: Remember Mat 13:34 Jesus used parables to tell all these things to the crowds; he would not say a thing to them without using a parable. So his flesh is not skin and bones and his blood is not liquid. He is not establishing a cannibalistic ritual where people eat God-flesh and drink God-blood (as was popular among neighboring pagan cults). He equates his teaching with bread and he equates believing his teaching to eating his flesh becoming one with him-. What is the function of blood? It brings life to the cells of the body. As you eat his bread/teaching and digest it, it brings life to you. The Bread/Flesh/body/blood of Jesus brings life to the spiritually dead humans. When you continuously read his words, and then put them into action, you bring life to the people of the world. 6:57 As the living Father has sent me, and I have eternal life through the Father, so whoever gnaws me, shall have eternal life through me. 6:58 Now do you see how my bread is greater/superior/outdoes the bread you said was from Moses? Whoever ate that bread eventually died, but whoever eats my bread will gain immortality. Near the Synagogue in Capernaum 6:59 This discourse took place when Jesus was teaching near the synagogue in Capernaum. 6:60 Many, even among his students, after they heard his speech were disgusted. They said these are rabid words. Who would listen to him again? 6:61 Jesus knew that his students were grumbling, and he asked them, Does this offend you? 6:62 If you are offended because I said I came down from heaven would you also be offended if you saw me ascend back into heaven? 6:63 El Shaddai gives eternal life through the Angel through me; human flesh is of no use at all. The words that I speak to you, they are from the /eternal life -giving angel, and they give Eternal life. 6:64 But I know that no matter how clearly I state it, some of you will refuse to believe. Jesus knew from the first moment he laid eyes on people who would disbelieve and who would betray him. 6:65 Thats why I said, no one can come to me until the father calls them. 6:66 After that, many of his early students turned back, and stopped following him. 6:67 Then he asked his twelve favorite students, Will you also leave? 6:68 Shimon/Kefer/Pebble/Peter said: Adoni/Prince/teacher/elohim where could we possibly go? You have the words of eternal life. 6:69 We believe and are sure that you are, the holy one, the ben Elohim/human son of the one true living God. 6:70 Jesus said You shouldnt speak for everyone Pebble/Peter, for although you are my favorites, one of you has gone over to the side of the wicked one. 6:71 He was referring to Judas ben Shimon of the town of Keriot. Translators Note: lets review what happened. In October Jesus and his students went to Jerusalem to the Harvest Festival and Jesus healed a man on the Sabbath. A group of angry rulers/elohim surrounded him in the temple and wanted to kill him. Jesus defended his miracle saying the son only does what he sees the father doing and the Father heals on the Sabbath so he heals. This further infuriated the ruler/Elohim and they accused him of making himself equal to God. Jesus said he was a man who can do nothing on his own. He said the father via the Wisdom/logos angel was working through him, and he is inferior to El Shaddai. However, he revealed that he is the Messiah and advised them not to dishonor him. He said he has many witnesses 31

and listed El Shaddai, John the Baptizer and his miracles as proof that he is the one Moses said would come. He said he had not come to condemn them but to save them, and yet he knew they would reject him. He then went to the land of the Non-Israelis east of the Jordan. After six months and many miracles he returned to Capernaum where a crowd from both the east and west sides of the Jordan confronted him at the synagogue and asked him to prove he was superior to Moses. He told them the Manna/teaching of Moses did not lead to eternal life, but to death. He said his heavenly bread/teaching leads to immortality. He lost most of his students that day, but the twelve favorite ones remain faithful to him. Chapter Seven Jesus Hannukah Visit 7:1 Jesus and his students decided not to go back to Judea right away for the Israeli rulers/Elohim in Jerusalem still wanted to kill him. 7:2 About six months later, it was again the Maccabean false Feast of Tabernacles. 7:3 His blood brothers from Nazareth passed by where he was staying to invite him to make the Aliyah to Jerusalem with them to the feast. They said, 7:4 Come to the feast. Let all your students in Judea see some of your miracles. 7:5 How do you expect to become successful and famous if you hide out up here in the Galilean backwoods. Show your miracles to the whole world. 7:6 They were mocking him because they did not believe in him. 7:7 Jesus replied. My time has not come yet, for you its always party time. You go, you will fit right in. 7:8 No one hates you, but many hate me because I reveal the wickedness of their hearts. If I go, they will try to kill me. 7:9 Therefore, his brothers went on their way beating drums and singing. Jesus stayed behind. 7:10 Later, Jesus took a back road and went up to Jerusalem in secret. Translators Note: originally the Feast of Tabernacles (little straw huts) was a fall festival, but by Jesuss day it had been moved to December 25th in honor of the victory of the Maccabees over the Greek/Syrians in 165 BC. It was said that when the Israelis rededicated the temple a one-day supply of oil miraculously lasted eight days. And now see that you keep the feast of booths in the month of Chislev" (2 Macc1:9) "on the twentyfifth day of the same month, which was Chislev (December 25th)." (2 Macc.10:5 ) Jesus was not about to bless this festival by doing the Aliyah. In fact, by his words and deeds, he repudiated the festival. There are several reasons he repudiated it. Firstly, it has no scriptural basis. The story is not found in the Hebrew Bible and nowhere even in the extra biblical books of Maccabees is there a story of oil lasting eight days. The biggest objection to Hannukah are the so called heroes. The Maccabees/Hasoneans usurped the kingship from the house of David and usurped the priesthood from the house of Zaddok. They abolished the Sabbath rule of resting and authorized fighting on Sabbaths. They were cruel rulers known for fratricidal assassinations and bribery. They slaughtered thousands of their own countrymen if they even suspected they were kind to non-Israelis. 32

In 88 BC, Alexander Jannaeus the son of John Hyrcanus (in office 103-76 BC), ordered the crucifixion of 800 Pharisees. "As he was feasting with his concubines, in the sight of all the city, he ordered about eight hundred of them to be crucified; and while they were living, he ordered the throats of their children and wives to be cut before their eyes." (Jospehus Antiquities
13:14:2)

The Maccabean usurpers moved the Feast of Tabernacles to coincide with the feast of Shamash the Sun God. It is called Hanukkah/ the festival of Lights, and they replaced the menorah with a new menorah with nine candles and named the middle candle Shamash. Jesus did not go up to celebrate Hanukkah, but to condemn it. 7:11 Many people at the festival were hoping to see Jesus and were asking, Where is he? Has anyone seen him? 7:12 Everyone had an opinion about him. Some said he was a good man and others said he was a fake and a deceiver. 7:13 Nevertheless, no one spoke too loudly for all were afraid of the rogues who had taken over the priesthood and the Senate. 7:14 When the festival was half over Jesus revealed himself. He appeared in the Temple Precinct and began teaching. 7:15 The people who heard him marveled. How did this humble Galilean learn to read, and speak so well? He has never been to the Temple school here in Jerusalem. 7:16 Jesus said, the doctrine I teach is not my own. I learned if from the one who sent me. 7:17 If anyone wants to test where my doctrine comes from, commit your life to doing El Shaddais will and you will find out. 7:18 Charlatans praise themselves and seek honor. But the man who wants to bring glory to the one who sent him is a true teacher and doesn't have dishonest motives. 7:19 Moses gave you the Torah and yet none of you obeys it. So if you all break it, why do you single me out, and want to punish me, for supposedly breaking it? 7:20 Those in the crowd who wanted to kill him shouted, No one wants to kill you, you must be possessed by a demon of paranoia. 7:21 Those who want to kill me, remember that I came here on a Shabbat, and healed a man. They are enraged saying I broke the Shabbat. 7:22 Moses gave you circumcision, (actually it was the Zaqen the elders), and the priests circumcise men on the Shabbat making them less whole, but you do not accuse them of working on a Shabbat. 7:23 If they can cut away part of a man and make him less whole, without breaking the Law, why could I not make a man completely whole without breaking the Law? 7:24 Do not any of you have a proper sense of judgment? Stop judging by appearances, and get right to the heart of a thing. 7:25 Some of the folks from the city asked, Isnt this the man the plotters were going to kill? 7:26 But look he is teaching and no one is complaining. Do you think the rulers/Elohim have decided he is the Messiah? 7:27 One of rogues in the crowd shouted, When the Messiah comes no one will know where he Came from, but we know this man comes from the Galilee. There are no prophets from the Galilee. Translators Note: he was showing his ignorance; there were several prophets from the Galilee: Jonah, Elijah, Nahum and Hosea were from the Galilee. These men were all highly esteemed in Jesus day and they all had ministries to gentiles. Jonah, in 580 BC, came from Gathepher a village three miles from Netzeret. 33

Jonah was the first missionary to the Gentiles. He was sent to call the Assyrians in Nineveh to repentance. Elijah, the Tishbite, was rejected by Israel and was sent by El Shaddai to Phoenicia where he dwelled in the house of a gentile widow in the town of Zarephatho. Traditionally it is believed Elijah went bodily to heaven in a fiery chariot, but since Jesus said no one, but he, had ever been to heaven we must assume that Elijahs fiery ride ended in death before he left the planet. Nahum, the Elkoshite, lived in Capernaum (Kefer Nahum) in 615 BC, his book also is a message to the gentiles in Nineveh. Hosea (a nickname for Jesus), the son of Beeri, lived in the 8th Century BC, in the Northern Kingdom. Hosea is told by El Shaddai to marry a woman who has left El Shaddai to become a temple prostitute of the Bull cult. Her name is Gomer (destruction to Idolaters), her children Jezreel (seed of El Shaddai), Lo Ruamah (disgraced) and Lo Ammi (You are no longer my people). Clearly Hoseas message is a warning that if the Hebrews continue in the Bull cult, they will lose the kingdom of El Shaddai, and no longer be El Shaddais chosen people. 7:28 Jesus amplified his voice and said, Do you really know me and where I am from? You think you do, but you do not. You think I am here as part of my plan. I am not. I am here because El Shaddai sent me. And you think you know him too, but you do not. 7:29 I, however, know him because I was transported to his throne, and he told me his plan, and sent me. 7:30 Some in the crowd tried to seize him to arrest him, but he slipped away for his hour had not come. 7:31 A lot of folks in that temple crowd became believers that day; they were saying. He must be the Messiah, look at all the miracles. Will the messiah do more miracles than this man has? 7:32 Certain rogues among the Pharisees, when they heard the people speaking, sent temple guards to arrest him. 7:33 Jesus said, "My days are numbered, soon I'll voyage to the one who sent me. 7:34 Some of you will look for me, but you won't find me. You can't go now where I'm going." 7:35 The Israeli rulers/Elohim asked, Does he plan to go preach to the scattered Israelis living in the lands of the goyim (Non-Israelis) and perhaps even preach to the barbarians? 736 And what does he mean Some of you will look for me, but you won't find me, and you can't go now where I'm going." 7:37 On the last, and most important day of the festival, Jesus stood up and shouted, "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink! (ISV) 7:38 Come and drink so that the rivers of living eternal water can flow out of your heart as the Scripture says. 7:39 He was speaking of having Fathers pure angel living within them, for at this point, the coming angel/Spirit of the Truth was not in them, and would not be in them until after Jesus ascended to heaven, and was glorified. The word of El Shaddai on high is the fountain of wisdom. (Ecclesiasticus (from the Latin Vulgate) 1: 5) Wisdom is poured forth like water. (Enoch 48:1A) Translators Note: This is the chain of command: El Shaddai places the Logos/wisdom/architect/angel in Jesus to make him a fountain of eternal life. When

34

Jesus ascended to heaven he asked father to send a second angel and when it comes into us, it becomes a fountain in us and we then give eternal life to others. 7:40 Many people in the crowd, when they heard his words, said surely this is the prophet Moses said would come. 7:41 Yes, he must be the Messiah, many said, but others said No prophet can come from Galilee. 7:42 The scriptures say that the Messiah will be a descendant of King David and will be born in Bethlehem, the town where David lived." (GNB) 7:43 Then an argument sprung up because some disagreed with that. 7:44 Once again there was a stirring in the crowd by those who wanted to arrest him, but no one could lay a hand on him. 7:45 When the temple guards returned empty-handed to the Pharisees and Chief priests/Elohim, they yelled at the guards, Why didnt you bring Jesus? 7:46 The temple guards replied, No one has ever spoken like this man before. 7:47 Has he deceived/bewitched/seduced you too? 7:48 Have you ever heard of one Ruler/Elohim or one Pharisee leader/Elohim following him? 7:49 The Hoipoloi/rabble/street mobs follow him because there are ignorant of the Torah of Moses and accursed anyway. 7:50 A senator stepped forward, a ruler/Elohim on the council that ruled Israel it was Nicodemos/Bonai-he asked, 7:51 "Surely our law does not condemn a person without first hearing from him and finding out what he is doing, does it?" (ISV) 7:52 Are you a secret Galilean? Search the Scriptures and you will see that no prophet arises in the Galilee. 7:53 Then the meeting ended and they all went to their rich houses. Translators Note: Nicodemos has always been portrayed as a hero, but he is a very poor scholar if he cant remember even one of the four prophets from the GalileeHosea, Nahum, Jonah and Elijah. And perhaps he did know, but was too cowardly to speak up. Chapter Eight The Teaching of the Two Worlds and the Two Fathers 8:1 Jesus and his students slept that night on the Mount of Olives. 8:2 Early in the morning they returned to the Temple area, and Jesus sat and began to teach. Soon many were listening. Translators Note: some people want to remove the next story from John arguing that it is not found in some early manuscripts. I include it. Certain rogues from among the Mosaic Law Experts, and from the Pharisees, brought a woman captured in the act of adultery. 8:4 Adoni/teacher we caught this woman in the act of adultery. 8:5 The Torah/law of Moses says we must stone her to death, what do you say? Translators Note: They thought they had the perfect trap, for if he condemned her, he would have blood on his hands, but if he released her, he would be breaking the Torah. 35 8:3

8:6 Jesus bent down and began to write in the dust with his finger. Well what do you say? 8:7 He stood up and said, Let the person among you who has never committed a sin, be the one to throw the first heavy stone of execution on her. 8:8 He continued writing in the dust. It is written all who forsake you (El Shaddai) will be put to shame and my faithless ones will be written in the dust. (From the Dead Sea Scrolls Ezke 17:13)

The Greek word anamartetos means not only without sin, but even without a sinful desire. Jesus was saying: "Yes, you may stone her--but only if you never wanted to do the same thing yourselves." (Barclay)
8:9 When the would-be-stoners heard this, they were convicted by their consciences; they went out one by one, beginning with the older ones, until the last. And Jesus was left alone, with the woman. 8:10 He said to the woman, Where are your accusers? Is there no one here to condemn you? She said, No one, but you Adoni/master. 8:11 Neither do I condemn you, Go and live your life for Father and sin no more.

"I am not going to pass a final judgment now; go and prove that you can do better. You have sinned; go and sin no more and I'll help you all the time. At the end of the day we will see how you have lived." (Barclay)
My child hast thou sinned? do so no more: but for thy former sins also pray that they may be forgiven you. Flee from sins as from the faces of serpents: for if thou comest near them, they will take hold of you. The teeth thereof are the teeth of a lion, killing men. All iniquity is like a two-edged sword, there is no remedy for the wound thereof. (Ecclesiasticus (from the Latin Vulgate) 21:1) Turn again to the Most High and away from sin, hate intensely what he loathes. (Sirach 16:21)

8:13 Later, the rogue Mosaic Law Experts/elohim and their rogue Pharisee/elohim companions regrouped and came back to again attack Jesus. Jesus said to them, I am the eternal light of the world whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will be filled with the light of eternal life. For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light. (Psa 36:9) "By his light I walked through darkness." (Job.29:3). Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. (Psa 119:105) For the commandment is a lamp; and the (True) Torah is light. (Prov. 6:23) The Torah was written with fire; black fire on white fire.(Tanh., Bershit 1)

Translators Note: John began his Gospel by talking about eternal light and eternal life. 1:4 The Logos/ architect angel was the conduit for eternal Life to enter the creation and this eternal Life brought light to the gloomy humans. 36

1:5 To this day the eternal Light still shines in the gloom and the gloomy ones have never been able to extinguish it. TheLogos/architect angel was the conduit residing in Jesus who is the further extension of the conduit. So when Jesus says I am the eternal Light of the world, it is the echo of the fathers voice passing through the angel through Jesus. The fathers words are light and when humans embrace the Fathers words, they receive eternal life and they will never walk in darkness. Those who have received the life- givinglight now have a mission to share this life-giving-light with others, so that they too may have eternal life here and now. Sample Prayer: Jesus you brought the light of hope into my gloomy life. Thank you. 8:14 The rogue leaders said, there you go again making rash statements about yourself with only yourself as the witness. A mans words are just his opinion unless he has others who can verify them. 8:14 Jesus replied. Even though I have no ones witness, but mine, it is enough for I know my source and I know where the light is coming from and where it is going. You on the other hand have no idea where the light comes from or where it is going. 8:15 You have standards by which you approve or condemn people, but your standards are animalistic/brutish/human standards by which you mostly condemn. I have not come to condemn anyone. 8:16 But if I did approve or condemn, I would not use your animalistic/brutish/human standards, but would consult with the father and use his standards, so my decisions would be fair. 8:17 In your own Torah/law it is written that the testimony of two people is valid. (ISV) 8:18 I have two witnesses to substantiate my claim that I am the eternal Light of the world. I am one witness and my Father is the other. 8:19 Someone in the crowd yelled, Where is this father of yours? Produce this witness. Jesus/Yahoshua replied, You would not ask that question if you knew my Father. You have never known him and you dont know me either. 8:20 This encounter took place in the treasury area of the Temple. Although the rogue leaders wanted to arrest him, at this time, they didnt, for it was not his hour. 8:21 later, Jesus spoke again to the rogue Pharisee/Elohim saying you will seek the Messiah; you will desire his coming, but the Messiah that you expect will not come; and, as you have rejected meyou must die in your sins. You will die unpardoned, and as you did not seek me where you might find me, you cannot come where I shall be. (Barnes) 8:22 The rogue Pharisee/Elohim played to the crowd and mockingly said Is this madman going to kill himself? Do you think thats what he means when he said you cant go where I am going. 8:23 Jesus said, You are operating on the animalistic/brutish/lower human level. I am operating on the higher level. You have not been called out of your carnal world yet, but there is another higher world which I was privileged to visit. 8:24 Thats why I warned you, you will die in your sins if you dont believe I am the one who can give you the eternal light now, and the eternal Life in the world to come. 8:25 Tell us plainly who are you? they asked. Jesus replied, I am exactly who I said I was from the first time I came to your city. 8:26 There is a lot I could condemn you for, but I did not come to condemn you, I am here to speak the truth that the Father wants you to hear. 8:27 None of them were getting it and couldnt/wouldnt accept that he came from El Shaddai. 8:28 Then Jesus said, When you have murdered me, then shall ye know that I am he/the messiah, 37

8:29 8:30 8:31 8:32 8:33

and that I do nothing on my own authority, but spoke only the words the Father ordered me to speak. El Shaddai is with me even now. He has never left me for everything I do, I do it to please him. Many who heard him speaking that day, became believers. Jesus addressed those in the crowd who were believers: If you keep learning/studying/doing the words I have spoken to you, you will truly be my students. And you will know the truth and the truth will make you free. One of the assassins in the crowd shouted, We are Abrahams sons. We have never been slaves to anyone. How can you say you will set us free?

This bluster sounds almost ludicrous from such a nation. Had they forgotten their long and bitter bondage in Egypt? Their dreary captivity in Babylon? (Their subjection by the Assyrians, Parthians, Greeks) and their present bondage to the Roman yoke, and their restless eagerness to throw it off?
(Jameison, Fausset & Brown) 8:34 You are the slaves of sin. Are you listening? Whoever sins is the slave of sin, 8:35 and slaves cannot stay in the Fathers house. You must become his child to live in his house of eternal life now and eternal life in the era to come. 8:36 If his son sets you free, you will be absolutely free. 8:37 I know you are the blood offspring of Abraham, but since the architect/wisdom/logos/angel does not dwell in you, you want to kill me. 8:38 I am doing what my father taught me to do and you assassins are doing what your father taught you to do. 8:39 The rogues screamed, Abraham is our father. No Jesus retorted, If Abraham was your father youd be acting like Abraham. 8:40 Abraham would never try to kill a man who had told him the truth about El Shaddai. 8:41 You rogues are doing your real fathers work. 8:41 They said, we are not illegitimate/bastards. We have one father- El Shaddai himself. 8:42 Jesus replied. If El Shaddai were really your father, you would know that he commissioned me and you would know I did not commission myself and you would love me. 8:43 Do you want to know why you dont understand what I am saying? It is because the Logos Wisdom angel has found no room in your hearts. 8:44 For you are the sons of your father the diabolos/devil/satan/Azazel/Baalzebul. It is him you serve and you are slaves to his lusts. Of course you want to murder me because he wants to murder me. He was a murderer from the beginning. He has never been on the side of truth for there is no truth in him. When he opens his mouth, out come lies. He is a liar and the father of lies. Translators Note: This was a bombshell. It was all downhill from here. 8:45 You cant stand the truth either, thats why you dont believe me. 8:46 Can anyone here prove me guilty of a sin? So if a just man (a Tzadik) stands before you, wont he be telling you the truth? Then why dont you believe me. 8:47 Anyone who belongs to El Shaddai will listen to his message. But you refuse to listen, because you don't belong to El Shaddai. (CEV) 8:48 One of the assassins said. It looks like we were right, you are a demon-possessed Samaritan. 8:49 I honor El Shaddai. Would a demon allow me to honor El Shaddai? No, but something in you prompts you to dishonor me. 38

8:50 I seek no honor for myself, I leave my reputation in Fathers hands and he favors me. Translators Note: the next two verses seem out of place, so I put them here to conclude Jesuss thoughts about honor. 8:54 Jesus replied, "If I honored myself, it would mean nothing. My Father is the one who honors me. 8:55 You claim that he is your God, even though you don't really know him. If I said I didn't know him, I would be a liar, just like all of you. But I know him, and I do what he says. 8:51 Listen very very carefully. Whoever obeys my words will never ever see death. (CEV) Translators Note: notice he doesnt say will not die. He is talking about the angel of death. If you obey Jesuss sayings, you will sleep in a place in the land of death reserved for believers, a place of rest, until the judgment day, when you will bypass the judgment seat and proceed directly to the Fathers house, where you will be welcomed as a beloved child. 8:52 Then the rogue/assassins in the Jewish crowd said, Now we know you are totally demonpossessed because you claim your followers will never taste death. Everyone dies. Even the best men died like Abraham and the prophets. Translators Note: did he say anything about tasting death? No, he said they will never see death. 8:53 Do you really see yourself as greater than our father Abraham? Abraham and all the prophets have died. What kind of a madman are you? 8:56 Jesus replied, Your father Abraham longed to see my day, and when he had a glimpse of it he rejoiced.

"he was desirous to see my day", as the Syriac and Arabic versions rightly render the word; or "very desirous", as the Persic version has it. (Gill)
Translators Note: two things are happening in this verse: firstly, Jesus is referring to the blessing of Abraham. The promise was that all humans would one day receive the Logos/Angel of Wisdom and that it would be brought via one of Abrahams descendants.

Galatians 3:16 This happened in order that the blessing promised to Abraham would come to the gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that they might receive the promised Spirit through faith. (ISV)
Secondly, he spoke of Abraham seeing his day. The only way that could have happened would be if Abraham had had a vision into the future. Now notice how they once again misquote Jesus in the next verse. 8:57 The rogue assassin and Jewish leaders/Elohim shouted, Youre not even 50 years old, how could you expect us to believe youve seen Abraham. Translators Note he didnt say he saw Abraham; he said Abraham saw him. 8:58 Are you listening? Listen up. Before Abraham was born I am the one El Shaddai foreordained to become the Messiah. Translators Note: Jesus had just told them they were the children of Satan and not the children of God, or Abraham, and he called them liars. And now he dropped the 39

final bombshell. Surely the rogue leaders in the crowd new the promise made to Abraham and surely they knew it meant gentiles would be brought into the nation. This idea was abhorrent to them (and still is today). This was the final straw. 8:59 Then the rogue assassins picked up stones to kill him and he faded again into the throng and left the Temple area unseen. Chapter Nine Jesus Came to Open the Eyes of the Good and Close the Eyes of the Bad 9:1 9:2 As they left the Temple area they encountered a blind man begging. He had been blind since birth. The students asked, Since he was born blind, who sinned, this man or his parents?

Translators Note: In the Commandments given in Exodus 20 it says God will visit the sins of the fathers upon their children and grandchildren and great-great grandchildren. Jesus refutes this teaching. It was a conceit amongst the Jews, that the infant, when formed and quickened in the womb, might behave itself irregularly, and do something that might not be altogether without fault. (Lightfoot 1675) Platos theory of pre-existent lives had infected many Jews who took it even a step farther and taught that some souls sinned in their pre-existent lives and as a result were born with an affliction. Perhaps Plato picked it up from the East where it is called Karma. Jesus also refutes this theory. Jesus spent much of his time demythologizing the myths of his day 9:3 Jesus replied, Neither of them, he is not blind because of sin. But because he is blind, you will see the father work a miracle through me 9:4 We must be about the fathers work before the dark days come. Were still in the days of light. 9:5 While I am in the world I am the worlds light. 9:6 He picked up some dirt, spat on it, and made some clay, which he applied to the blind mans eyes. 9:7 He then sent him to the pool of Shiloach where he was told to wash away the mud. A few minutes later, the blind man ran back shouting joyfully that he could see. 9:8 Some of his neighbors asked, Isnt this the blind man who used to sit and beg? 9:9 Others said, It looks like him. He said, Yes, it is I. 9:10 They asked him, What happened? 9:11 He said, A man named Jesus put some mud on my eyes and told me to go to the pool of Shiloach and wash. As soon as I washed away the mud, I could see. 9:12 Where is he now? The blind man said, I do not know. 9:13 The neighbors took the blind man to some of rogue leaders of the Pharisees, for he had been healed on a Shabbat. 9:14 They were more concerned about the Shabbat infraction, than with their neighbors miracle. 9:15 The Pharisees had a meeting, and made the ex-blind man tell them the whole story. He told them, "He put some mud on my eyes; I washed my face, and now I can see." 9:16 When he finished, the rogues said, This man does not come from Adonai (El Shaddai) because he broke the Shabbat. However, some honest Pharisees asked, How could a sinner 40

do such a miracle? Therefore, they were divided. 9:17 Then they asked the ex-blind man, What do you say about him? The healed man said, He is a prophet. Nevertheless, the rogues insisted it was a trick, and that the man was not really blind, but only pretended to be blind. 9:18 So they sent for his parents, and asked them, 919 Is so and so your son? Yes. Is it true he was born blind? Yes. Then how is it possible that he can now see? 9:20 We know he is our son and we know he was born blind. 9:21 We do not know how he can see, nor do we know the person who healed him. He is of age why not ask him yourselves. 9:22 The parents were terrified and had been warned that anyone who was suspected of following Jesus, would be put out of the community. 9:23 That is why they said, Ask him yourselves. Translators Note: Ezra wrote that disobedient Israelis would have their property confiscated and they would be kicked out of the community. (Ezr.10:8) 9:24 Therefore, the Pharisees called back the ex-blind man and asked him to explicitly explain what Jesus did to his eyes. They really wanted him to confirm that Jesus worked on a Shabbat so they could condemn him. Promise Ha Shem (God) you will tell the truth. We know the man who healed you is a sinner. 9:25 "I do not know if he is a sinner or not," the man replied. One thing I do know: I was blind, and now I see." (NB) 926 "What did he do to you?" they asked. "How did he cure you of your blindness? (GNB) 9:27 The ex-blind man said, I have already told you once, and you did not believe me. Why do you want to hear it again? Are you considering becoming his students? 9:28 This reply angered them and they rebuked him saying, We know you are his follower, but we are the students of Moses. 9:29 We know that Adonai spoke to Moses, but we do not know where this man gets his power. 9:30 The man answered, "What a strange thing that is! You do not know where he comes from, but he cured me of my blindness! 9:31 This is puzzling, our sages have told us that blind people are blind because either they sinned, or their parents sinned. You say there is no hope for sinners, because Adonai does not hear the prayers of sinners. David says: "If I had cherished iniquity in my heart, the Lord would not have listened." (Ps.66:18). "When you spread forth your hands (the Jews prayed with the hands stretched out, palms upwards), I will hide my eyes from you; even though you make many prayers, I will not listen; your hands are full of blood" (Isa.1:15). "Though they cry in my ears with a loud voice, I will not hear them." (Eze.8:18). "The Lord is far from the wicked; but he hears the prayer of the righteous" (Prov.15:29)

Our sages also tell us Adonai grants the prayers of those who obey him. So along comes a man who heals the blind and you say he must be a sinner, and you have no idea where he gets his power. 9:32 Since the world began, we have never heard of a man born blind receiving his sight. 9:33 Cant you see this man would have no power, unless it came from Adonai? Of course he is 41

from Adonai. The rogues were miffed. He had turned the tables on them, and used their own teachings to expose their blindness and the hardness of their hearts. They were in a rage. 9:34 Who do you think you are to lecture us? You were born blind in filthy sin, They threw him out. 9:35 When Jesus heard what happened, he sought him out. When he found him, he asked, Do you believe in the son of El Shaddai? 9:36 Who is he adoni/Master? I want to follow him. 9:37 You have seen him, and he is talking with you right now. 9:38 I believe Adoni/master, he said doing obeisance (bending the knee) before him the way students in those days did to their teachers. 9:39 For Krimen (rewards and punishments) I have been commissioned in this world I reward the just with sight and I punish the wicked with blindness. 9:40 Some rogue priests had been eaves dropping on them, and spoke up, Are you saying we are blind? 9:41 If you lived the way you live, but were blind to right and wrong, you would not be charged for your sins, but because you claim to be doing what you are doing with your eyes wide open, it is even worse, and so you have no excuse for your sins. The blindness of the heart is more grievous than the blindness of the eyes, for the blindness of the eyes may be guided little by little, but the blindness of the heart is not guided, and it leaves the straight path, and goes in a crooked way. Haiqar 2:44

Chapter Ten The Two Shepherds: the Doorkeeper Shepherd and the Owner Shepherd Translators Note: A sheepfold was a pen where the sheep spent the night. Each village had one and many shepherds would bring their sheep to the sheepfold for safekeeping. There was a designated shepherd who was the Doorkeeper and he guarded the sheep at night. The pen had stone, or wooden walls, some had thatched roofs, or were open to the sky. During the summer months, when the sheep were taken to the mountains, the shepherds assembled a crude circle of stones for the sheepfold with sometimes a temporary thatched roof. The Doorkeeper Shepherd usually rested in the doorway and acted as a door to keep the sheep inside, and wolves and thieves out. The Next day Jesus went back to the Temple and taught 10:1 Listen to this, if anyone is found in a sheep pen and did not enter by the door, that person is a thief without a doubt. 10:2 Every shepherd enters by a door. 10:3 The Doorkeeper shepherd sits in the entrance way blocking it with his body like a gate. Its his job to protect the sheep and open the door only when the Owner/shepherd or shepherds come in the morning to get his flock. The sheep know the Owner/shepherds voice. He calls each one by its name and leads it out. 42

10:4 when they all are out of the pen/enclosure, he walks up the path and they follow him - they follow his voice. 10:5 They will never follow a stranger, but will run away from him because they do not recognize the voices of strangers. (ISV) 10:6 This parable went over the listeners heads. They had no idea what Jesus was talking about. So he said, 10:7 Let me put it this way, I am the doorkeeper shepherd. 10:8 All who came before me, claiming to be the doorkeeper shepherds, were cunning thieves and violent/murderous robbers. The sheep/those faithful to El Shaddai fled from them. Translators Note: the world had seen many false Messiahs prior to Jesus, and many more pretenders right down to our day. 10:9 10:10 10:11 10:12 10:13 10:14 10:15 10:16 I am the doorkeeper shepherd who makes himself a safe gate. Anyone in the fold I guard, will be safe and be protected as they go to and return from the pastures. The robber/shepherds only come to plunder and kill the sheep. Me I have come to give them eternal life and give it to them in abundance. I am the faithful shepherd who will defend his sheep to his last breath. A hired hand will run when he sees a wolf coming. He will abandon the sheep because they don't belong to him and he isn't their shepherd. And so the wolf attacks them and scatters the flock. (NLT) The hired hand runs away because he's working only for the money and doesn't really care about the sheep. (NLT) I am a faithful shepherd; I know each ram and ewe and lamb, and they know me. Just as the Father knows me and I know the father and I will give my last breath for my sheep. I have other sheep that don't belong to this fold. I must lead these also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock and one shepherd. (SV)

Translators Note: The other sheep would be the Non-Israelis. 10:17 The father loves me because I lay down my breathing/earth-centered/psyche life, so I can pick up the other life - Zo/eternal life. 10:18 Father is not taking my life. No one is taking my life. I am endangering my psyche/breathing/earth-life of my own free will. If I am killed, I have the power to receive Zo/eternal life. This is all the Fathers plan, but he gave me the choice. 10:19 This threw the crowd into turmoil. 10:20 The rogues were saying, He is crazy. He is possessed by a demon. Do not listen to him. He is insane. 10:21 But others were saying, These are not the words of someone possessed by an angel/demon. Can angel/demons open blind mens eyes? Translators Note: the time line gets blurred here. The next verse seems to be introducing a new Hanukkah festival taking place a year later 10:22 When winter came, he returned with his students to Jerusalem. It was the time of another Feast of the Dedication (Hanukkah). 10:23 They were in the Temple, in the area called Solomons Court. 10:24 Another crowd, made up mostly of the rogue/ruler/elohim had gathered and someone asked him, How long are you going to keep us in suspense, if you are the Messiah tell us 43

so. 10:25 Jesus replied, I already told you I am the Messiah, but you do not believe me. Dont my miracles tell you I am the anointed one? 10:26 The reason you refuse to believe me is that you are not my sheep. You have sold yourselves to the devil and you are Azazels sheep. I told you 10:27 My sheep hear my voice and love me. No one can snatch them out of my hand, 10:28 and I give them eternal life now and eternal life in the world to come. 10:29 My Father, who gave them to me, is the Chief Shepherd, and no one can snatch them from his hand either. 10:30 In this, Father and I are in solidarity. 10:31 The murderous rogues pulled out large stones from beneath their cloaks. 10:32 Wait! Jesus said. Before you stone me, tell me for which of my beautiful miracles do you want to kill me? 10:33 We are not killing you for your miracles, but for blasphemy. You are just a man, but you are claiming to be Elohim God Almighty. 10:34 If I did call myself an elohim I would not be breaking the Torah, King David, whom you all Love, wrote, about rulers in Psalm (82.6) Ye are Elohim (gods) all of you. And no one disputes that. If David by the Spirit /angel of El Shaddai called the rulers of Israel gods, then the Torah allows mere men to bear that title, so why are you upset with me for saying I am a Son of Elohim? Is a son equal to a father? No! He is inferior. (John 10:35) Translators Note: Jesus is saying, My point is a Hebrew ruler may call himself an Elohim, and not break the Law, for even Moses was called an Elohim, as were all the judges of Israel. However, I have never called myself an Elohim, but only a son of Elohim. 10:36 How can you say of him, whom the Father has sanctified, and sent into the Kosmos, You blaspheme; because I said, I am the Son of Elohim? Translators Note: Sanctify means to purify or make holy. You cannot sanctify God. The argument that Jesus is God falls flat here because if he were God, there is no reason for the Father to sanctify him. In this entire section Jesus is denying that he is God. Later he prays that the father will sanctify his men also. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. (John 17:17) The one sanctifying is the Father and those being sanctified are men. The Father sanctified Jesus therefore he was a man and not God. His word makes us clean and pure. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. (Joh 15:3) Jesus is saying, Nevertheless, in calling myself his son, I am no different from you, for you yourselves say Elohim is your father. So if you are you free to call yourselves sons of Elohim without blaspheming, why do you say I am blaspheming when I do it?) 10:37 If you think that the miracles and deeds I am doing, like healing the blind and the sick, are not godly, then do not believe in me. 10:38 However, if you agree that these are godly deeds, then you must admit I am working with El Shaddai and he is working through me and I am his intermediary.

10:39 At this point, the angry ruler/elohim tried again to arrest him, but when the dust had settled, Jesus/Yahoshua was gone. He and his students had once again escaped out of their hands. Back to the River camp 10:40 They journeyed east, across the Jordan River, to where his men, and women, followers had made a camp near where John, the Baptizer, had first appeared. 10:41 Many people came to him there and they said now we know that John was telling us the truth about Jesus. John could show us no miracles, but every word he spoke about Jesus was the absolute truth. 10:42 Many people became believer/followers there at the Jordan River. Chapter Eleven Jesus Brings Lazarus/Eliezar Back to Life 11:1 11:2 11:3 11:4 11:5 11:6 11:7 11:8 11:9 11:10 11:11 11:12 11:13 11:14 11:15 11:16 A few days later, runners came to him from the town of Beit-Anyan saying Lazarus/Eliezar (the brother of Mary and Marta) was so sick; he would surely die, if Jesus did not come quickly. Jesus said, Tell them he will be alright, for his sickness will bring Glory to the Father, and to his mortal son. Jesus loved Lazarus/Eliezar, Marta and Mary. To the amazement of the students, he waited until the third day, before he announced Lets go back to Beit-Anyan. One of the female Students asked, Is it safe yet? Just a few days ago they tried to stone you in Judea. He said, Those who walk in the dark usually stumble unless they have a torch, or a candle. My friend Lazarus/Eliezar is sleeping in the dark, I must be the torch to guide him and I must bring the dawn to wake him, for the night is almost over and a new day is dawning. Another disciple said, Sleep is good for a man when he is sick. She thought he meant Lazarus/Eliezar was asleep, but he meant he was dead. Jesus said, I mean he is in the sleep of death. I did not want to be there when he died, so that when I wake him, you will see it is no trick, and this will strengthen your faith. Lets go to him now. Then Toma, called Didymus (the twin), said, Lets go. If I must die, I want to die standing beside Jesus.

The Resurrection of Lazarus/Eliezar Translators Note: please notice that Eliezar is a non-Israeli name indicating that he may have been a gentile, this story has implications that the gentiles too are worthy of the resurrection. 11:17 11:18 11:19 11:20 11:21 By the time they reached Beit-Anyan, they learned that Lazarus/Eliezar had died right after the runners left, and had been buried already 4 days. Beit-Anyan was just outside of Jerusalem and many mourners had come from the city to comfort Mary and Marta. When Marta learned that Jesus was nearing the house, she ran to meet him. Master, she cried as he embraced her, I know that if you had been here, my brother would not have died, 45

11:22 but even now I know you can bring him back, for whatever you ask Father to do, he does it for you. Translators Note: notice that Marta realizes the power does not come from Jesus, but through Jesus. The miracles come from El Shaddai. 11:23 Do not worry Marta; your brother shall live again. 11:24 Yes, I know you told us we would all live again at the Resurrection, on the last day. Translators Note: Jesuss teaching on Resurrection was outside the main stream. Generally the Israelis believed that to die was to enter the Land of death where there was no consciousness and no escape. For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not anything, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. (Ecc 9:5) "In death there is no remembrance of thee (El Shaddai): in Sheol (the Land of Death) who can give thee praise?" (Ps.6:5). "What profit is there in my death if I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise thee? Will it tell of thy faithfulness?" (Ps.30:9). "the slain that lie in the grave, like those whom thou dost remember no more; for they are cut off from thy hand" (Ps.88:5). " Are thy wonders known in the darkness, or thy saving help in the land of forgetfulness?" (Ps.88:10-12). "The dead do not praise the Lord, nor do any that go down into silence" (Ps.115:17). "Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work or thought or knowledge or wisdom in Sheol (the Land of Death)l, to which you are going" (Ecc.9:10). "For Sheol (the Land of Death) cannot thank thee, death cannot praise thee; those who go down to the pit cannot hope for thy faithfulness" (Isa.38:18). 11:25 Jesus said, I am the Resurrection and I can give Eternal life. All who follow and keep on being faithful to me shall live and never meet death, 11:26 and when their bodies perish, they shall rise again to eternal life in the era to come. Do you believe this Marta? 11:27 Yes Adoni/master/teacher/prince/elohim, I believe it, and I know you are the Son of El Shaddai, the Messiah we have been waiting for. 11:28 Then Jesus sent her back to the house, to tell Mary that he had come to raise their brother. When Marta reached the house, she called Mary aside and whispered to her that Jesus wanted to see her. Translators Note: Jesus did not enter the house for houses in mourning were hysterical places, the more extreme the mourning, the more the Israelis thought it honored the dead (just like the Palestinians do today). 11:29 11:30 11:31 11:32 Mary hurried outside to find him. Jesus waited outside the village where he had met Marta. The mourners saw her leave and followed her, thinking she was going to the tomb to weep. When Mary saw Jesus, she fell at his feet sobbing. Adoni/master/teacher/Prince/Elohim if only you had been here my brother would not have died. 11:33 When he saw her and all the mourners wailing, he too began to sob uncontrollably and was overcome with grief.

46

Translators Note: as a reflection of the Father, Jesus shows that El Shaddai is intimately moved by the sorrows of his children. He is not a distant God detached from humans, cold- heartedly watching us. 11:34 11:35 11:36 11:37 11:38 Then he asked her, Where have you lain him? She said, Come and see. He followed her weeping. The mourners said, See how much he loved Lazarus/Eliezar, if he could open blind eyes, couldnt he have prevented this? When he reached the tomb, he once again was overcome with emotion. The tomb was a cave with a large stone rolled over its entrance. 11:39 Jesus said, Roll back the stone. Marta began to feebly protest, But Master it has been four days and by now the body will stink. Translators Note: in those days, it was not uncommon for a person who was believed to be dead to revive within 72 hours, but by the fourth day there was no hope. 11:40 Marta, didnt I tell you you will see the Glory of El Shaddai? 11:41 Then she gave a signal, and some men rolled back the large stone. Jesus looked up towards heaven and prayed in a loud voice, Father, thank you for always hearing my prayers. 11:42 To convince those gathered here that you have commissioned me; I ask your permission to use the power you gave me. 11:43 Then he cried out with a thunderous voice: Lazarus/Eliezar come out of your tomb. 11:44 A few moments later, the dead man appeared at the mouth of the cave. He was still wrapped in his grave clothes. His hands and feet were wrapped and a cloth covered his face. Jesus said to the men standing near the cave. Unwrap him. 11:45 A feeling of awe flooded the place when they saw it was truly Lazarus/Eliezar, and everyone there that day became believers. Yosef Kayafa the Chief Rogue/Elohim Prophesies and Plots Jesus Death 11:46 However a few evil people who saw the miracle, ran to the rogue Israeli leaders: the Chief priests (Gamaliel I, Shammai, Jochanan ben Zaccai and Alexander Lysimachus) and some evil senator/elohim from the Sanhedrin (Bet Din) and they asked each other, 11:47 What shall we do? His miracles are increasing in numbers and in power. 11:48 If we do nothing, everyone in Israel will follow him. We will lose our rich positions of authority, and then the Romans will destroy us. 11:49 Yosef Kayafa, the illegal High Priest/elohim, said, You idiots, 11:50 you clearly do not understand what is involved here. The good of the whole nation is at stake. Surely it would be better to have one man die, than for the whole nation to perish. 11:51 Now this he said not of himself: but, being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for the nation; 11:52 and not for the nation only, but that he might also gather together into one the children of El Shadai that are scattered abroad. 11:53 After that, whenever the Elohim/rogue priests and senators met, they plotted the death of Jesus. 11:54 After resurrecting Lazarus/Eliezar in Beit-Anyan, Jesus was careful never to be seen in public places, but made his camp in the wilderness of Ephraim about 20 Km to the northeast of Jerusalem. 47

Jesus Last Passover 11:55 About three, or four months later, another Passover Festival was about to start in Jerusalem. Many people went up early to purify themselves so they could celebrate the feast. Translators Note: the Passover can be explained with one word liberation On the first Passover night in Egypt, the Angel of El Shaddai passed by the first born sons of Israel and killed the first born sons of the Egyptians (both man and beast). This act caused the pharaoh to let the Israelis slaves free. Jesus victory over sin/satan/azazel on the cross sets humans free from the slavery of eternal death. 11:56 Many of the festival goers in the temple area asked each other Do you think Jesus/Yahoshua will come? 11:57 The Elohim rogue chief priests (Gamaliel I, Shammai, Jochanan ben Zaccai and Alexander Lysimachus) and the Elohim rulers of the Pharisees had given an order that if anyone saw Jesus, they must report it immediately, so they could apprehend him before he reached the temple.

By my calculations, the full moon of the Fall equinox (under which Jesus was born) fell on the night of October 14-15, 5 BC; the full moon of the Spring equinox (under which He was crucified) fell on the night of April 7-8, AD 30. The difference is EXACTLY 3 years 6 months as viewed by the lunar calendar that the Jews used. (John Roller 2011)

12:1

Six days before the feast, Jesus and his students arrived at Lazarus/Eliezars house in Beit-Anyan. The same man he raised from the dead. 12:2 Marta prepared the meal for Jesus, her brother, and the students. 12:3 After supper, Eliezars other sister, Mary, brought an alabaster liter of Spikenard (a perfume made from Myrrh), it was extremely extremely expensive), and poured the perfume on Jesuss feet and wiped them with her hair. The whole house filled with the lovely fragrance of Myrrh. Translators Note: He would have radiated a kingly odor when he was before the Sanhedrin, the soldiers, and being nailed to the tree, and when he returned from the land of death to appear to the Apostles. Just by his smell, they would have known it was Jesus. 12:4 Judas Ben Shimon, the Moabite, the disciple who was planning to betray Jesus, said, What a waste, we could have sold that perfume for a fortune, 12:3 at least three hundred denari (a years wage), and given the money to the poor. 12:6 He did not intend to give the money to the poor because he was regularly stealing money from the moneybag, which he carried for the group. Question: What is the most corrupting sin? Answer: loving this world, for that was the sin of Judas. Stealing means you love this world and the things of this inhabitable world. It is a secret, violent act of unbelief that leads to lying and the eventual betrayal of family friends, society and finally suicide. 12:7 Jesus said, Leave her alone Judas. She has done a lovely thing. She is preparing my body for my burial. The word here for lovely is Kalos. It means good and beautiful. Love does not do only good things. Love does lovely things. (Barclay) Mary perhaps more than anyone understood what he meant about dying and resurrecting. This is her way of saying I believe you. 12:8 The poor will always be here. There will be plenty of opportunities to help the poor, but I am about to depart this earth. As Moses wrote: For the poor will never go away out of the land; for that reason, I command you, saying, You must open your hand wide to your brother, to your poor and to your needy, in your land. (De.15:11) 12:9 When word got out that Jesus was in Bethany, crowds began to gather hoping to see him, and to see Eliezar, whom he had resurrected from the dead.

49

Translators Note: once you decide to murder one man, it is easy to decide to kill another, so 12:10 the rogue Chief priests Elohim (Jochanan ben Zaccai and Alexander Lysimachus) also put Eliezar on their death list 12:11 because too many Israelis were turning to Jesus as the result of Eliezars testimony. Translators Note: since many of the Sadducees ruled the Sanhedrin/Beit Din, and they did not believe in the resurrection, Eliezars existence refuted their beliefs. Falsehood only knows one way to deal with truth -kill it.
On the Next Day

12:12 The next day a large crowd was in Jerusalem for Passover. When they heard that Jesus was coming for the festival, 12:13 they gathered palm branches and went out to greet him. They shouted, "Hosanna/save us! Long live the king who comes in the name of El Shaddai! God bless the King of Israel!" 12:14 Jesus was on a donkey and rode on it, just as the Scriptures prophesied, Translators Note: conquering kings rode war horses, or came in golden chariots. Jesus chose an humble donkey to show he was not a military general. The donkey is a symbol of peace. He had not come to sit on a throne and rule, but to serve. 12:15 " Rejoice with all your heart, people of Zion! Shout in triumph, people of Jerusalem! Look! Your King is coming to you: He is righteous and victorious. He is humble and rides on a donkey, on a colt, a young pack animal. Zech.9:9 (GW) 12:16 At that time, Jesuss students did not understand. But after he had been raised from the dead and received up into the cloud they remembered all this. Everything had happened exactly as the Scriptures said it would. 12:17 A crowd had come to meet Jesus because they had seen him raise Lazarus/Eliezar out of the grave. They were still very excited about him and this miracle. 12:18 Many people were flocking to see him because of their testimony. 12:19 But the rogue leaders/Elohim of the Pharisees said to each other, "What can be done? Now the whole world is following him and calling him king. Jesus Opens the Covenant to Non-Israelis at this Last Festival 12:20 Some non-Israeli God-seekers had come to the festival. They asked Philippos if they could meet Jesus. 12:21 Philippos told Andreia, and together they approached Jesus and said, 12:22 There are some Non-Israeli/gentiles who fear El Shaddai who have come to the feast, they would like to meet you. 12:23 Jesus said, The hour has come for me/the son of adam/a mortal/the messiah to be glorified. 12:24 When he met the Non-Israelis, El Shaddai, through the angel, through Jesus said, Unless a grain of wheat dies and is buried in the ground, it is alone. But once it dies and is buried, it produces hundreds of grains. 12:25 Those who love their breathing/psyche/earth-life will destroy it, but those who detach from their breathing/psyche/earth-life will gain Zo/eternal life now and in the next world. 12:26 Jesus said, If you serve me, you must go with me. My servants will be with me wherever I am. If you serve me, my Father will honor you. (CEV) 50

Translators Note: this seems very clear to me, Jesus is calling the non-Israelis into the kingdom/covenant/family of El Shaddai 12:27 Then lifting his eyes towards heaven he prayed, Father I am frightened, I would like to say save me from this hour, but I was born for this hour. Father glorify your name. 12:28 A voice came from heaven, I have glorified my name and will do it again. 12:29 Some of the non-Israelis said, it was thunder, and others said, It was the voice of an angel. 12:30 Jesus said, This voice did not speak for my sake, but to help you believe. 12:31 For now the showdown is coming upon the earth and Azazel the Kosmokrator/god of this Kosmos power will be broken. 12:32 And when I am hung in a tree, I will draw my friends to me. (Persic version) 12:33 By saying this he signified what kind of death he was going to have. Translators Note: the phrase of being lifted up from the earth, not only signified his death, but the kind, or manner of it, that it should be by crucifixion; a person crucified being stretched forth upon a cross, and that erected, was lifted up between earth and heaven. (John Gill Commentaries) 12:34 The non-Israeli God-seekers said, We have heard that the Messiah will rule forever. If you are the Messiah, why do you say you must be hung in a tree? It sounds like you will die. If you are not the Messiah who is? 12:35 El Shaddai, through the angel, through Jesus said, to them, I am the light of the world. In that hour was this Mortal invoked before the Eloah (supreme God) of spirits, and his name in the presence of the Ancient of days. Before the sun and the signs were created, before the stars of heaven were formed, his name was invoked in the presence of the Eloah of spirits. A support shall he be for the righteous and the holy to lean upon, without falling; and he shall be the light of nations. He shall be the hope of those whose hearts are troubled. (Enoch 48:2 )

Walk in the light while you have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walks in darkness does not know where he goes. I will only be with you a short time longer. 12:36 While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may be the children of light. Translators Note: since El Shaddai is light his children are also light. Do you remember how John began this Gospel? The eternal life is the light of humans. Zo/eternal life is the hope of immortality. Once you receive the Logos/Wisdom angel, you have Zo/eternal life, and then you become a light to others. There seems to be another disjuncture in the text and it appears verses 12:44 to12: 50 should be here. 12:44 Then Jesus said clearly, "Whoever believes in me, believes not in me but in him who sent me. 12:45 And whoever sees me sees him who sent me. 12:46 I am a light going through this world, so that whoever believes in me will not remain in darkness. 12:47 If anyone hears my words and does not obey them, I will not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world.

51

Translators Note: Jesus said neither he nor his father are judges, but there is a judge. 12:48 If anyone rejects me, and does not obey my words, they will meet a judge; the words that I have spoken will judge them on the last day. Translators Note: thats why it is so important to study the words of Jesus and obey them. 12:49 For I have not spoken on my own authority, but the Father who sent me has himself ordered me what to say and what to speak. 12:50 And I know that his New Covenant Torah words are eternal life. 12:36 continued- Once he said this, he mingled into the crowd and no one could find him. 12:37 Nevertheless the multitude and the rogue leaders still refused to believe in him. Despite the fact that they saw so many marvelous miracles, their hearts remained closed. 12:38 And so the words of the Prophet Isaiah came true, El Shaddai who has listened and believed your message? To whom has your arm (the architect/logs/wisdom/angel) been revealed? 12:39 They had hardened their hearts so much that they were unable to believe. Translators Note: Truth softens the tender hearts and hardens the mean hearts. 12:40 As Isaiah also said, it has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, they have eyes which refuse to see and hearts that refuse to understand and they refuse to believe and come to the fullness of eternal life. 12:41 Isaiah reported these words when he saw the Logos/architect/wisdom angel in a vision. 12:42 But not everyone in the crowd closed their hearts; many believed; including even a few rulers/Elohim, but they kept their belief secret for fear of being ostracized, and ejected from community. 12:43 For they loved the praises of men more than the praises of El Shaddai. Chapter Thirteen The Last Supper/Seder Passover Meal Held on Tuesday Translators Note: Hebrew days begin at sundown and end at sundown. Since this Passover meal is being celebrated the night before the Passover lambs were slain, this could not have been the traditional Israeli Passover. I believe it was the Essene Passover. The Essenes Passover that year began just after sun down; it was the beginning of Tuesday. Jesus died 19 hours later at the end of Tuesday just before sunset. That was when the Israelis were sacrificing their Passover lambs. Traditionally the meal is said to have been attended by 13 men. Matthews version would open the possibility that with the 13 there may have been as many as 120 other disciples.

52

Mat 26:18 And he said, Go into the city to such a man, and say unto him, The Master saith, My time is at hand; I will keep the Passover at thy house with my disciples. Notice he says disciples and not apostles, so there could have been a large number including women. Jospehus said 256,500 lambs were slain that year which means there were over 2,700,000 people in Jerusalem that Passover. http://web.archive.org/web/20040503020505/www.ldolphin.org/barclay/luke.htm l (Josephus is not always reliable) Exactly seventy-two hours later (just before sunset Friday Afternoon), Jesus resurrected, just before the Shabbat started it was still Friday -Good Friday. 13:1 It was now the day before the eight day Passover Festival. Jesus knew he was right on schedule and soon he would depart from this world to be with the Father. He had shown great love to his students, and he would love them forever. 13:2 By the time they finished the meal, Azazel/diabolos/satan/the devil had Festered the idea of immediate betrayal into the mind of Judas ben Shimon of Keriot. 13:3 Jesus also knew he himself/Jesus had been given the rule/headship/authority over all things and that he had been commissioned by El Shaddai and was going to soon be with El Shaddai in the heavenly Kingdom. 13:4 So during the meal, Jesus stood up, removed his outer robe, and wrapped a towel around his waist. 13:5 Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the students' feet and dry them with the towel. 13:6 He came to Shimon/Pebble/Peter last. Pebble/Peter asked, Are you really going to wash my feet Prince? 13:7 Jesus said Pebble/Peter I know you dont understand what I am doing right now, but later you will understand. 13:8 Pebble/Peter said, No Prince, it is not right, I cant let you wash my dirty feet. Jesus said, Shimon/Pebble/Peter if you wont let me wash your feet, you can no longer be my student. 13:9 In that case, Pebble/Peter said, Wash my hands and head too. 13:10 If you bathed before you came, I only need to wash your feet. When he finished, he said, Now all my students are clean, except for one. 13:11 Jesus knew which student was going to betray him, thats why he said, except for one. 13:12 After he finished washing their feet, he put on his robe and returned to his place at the table, then he asked them, Do you understand what I just did? 13:13 You call me teacher and Adoni/Prince/Elohim and you are correct in addressing me so. 13:14 But if I, your Adoni and Prince, has humbled himself to wash your feet, you also should humble yourselves in like manner to serve each others needs. 13:15 I have given you an example of how you should serve others like I served you. 13:16 Listen very carefully, a slave is never greater than his/her owner, and a messenger is never greater than the one sending the message. 13:17 Its great to know these things, but true happiness only comes when you do them. 13:18 But I know you wont all do them for even though I picked you twelve, I picked one of you to fulfill the scripture Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, who did eat of my bread, has lifted up his heel against me, and tripped and kicked me. (Psalm 149: 9) "It is not an enemy who taunts me--then I could bear it--it is not an adversary who deals insolently with me--then I could hide from him. But it is you, my equal, my companion, my 53

familiar friend. We used to hold sweet converse together; within God's house we walked in fellowship" (Ps.12-14). Is it not a sorrow unto death when your bosom companion becomes your enemy? (Sirach 37: 2) "Alas, my companion! Why were you created? To blanket the earth with deceit?" (Sirach 35: 3)

13:19 I am telling you this now, before it takes place, so that when it happens, it will strengthen your faith in me as the Messiah. 13:20 Are you listening? Listen very carefully, whoever receives an ambassador that I send, it will be as if she/he is receiving me, and whoever receives me, it will be as if they will be receiving my father. 13:21 After having said this Jesus became emotional/he was visibly shaken as he said, please listen very carefully to what I am about to say. One of you is plotting to betray me. 13:22 The students stared at each other uncertain of whom he was speaking. 13:23 The favorite student was near Jesus at the table 13:24 and Shimon/Pebble/Peter motioned to him to ask Jesus of whom he spoke. 13:25 So the favorite student leaned back and asked Jesus Prince who is it? 13:26 Jesus said discreetly, It is the one I hand this piece of Matzo/bread to after I dip it in the sauce of bitter herbs. Then he dipped the piece of Matzo into the sauce bowl and handed it to Judas ben Shimon of Keriot. 13:27 After eating the piece of Matzo, the evil that was festering in him became full blown (Azazel/satan/the devil) came to the forefront and Jesus said to him, if you are resolved to ruin yourself, go on, and take what comes. (Matthew Henry 1700) 13:28 Except for the favorite student, no one else at the meal knew what was going on or why Jesus said this to Judas. 13:29 Some of the students thought because Judas was the treasurer, Jesus was telling him, to buy something else for the feast, or to go give some money to the poor according to the Passover custom. 13:30 As soon as Judas finished the piece of Matzo bread, and heard what Jesus said, Judas left. He went out into the black night. It was the 3rd hour, Tuesday, 9:00 PM (Bullingers Companion Bible). Translators Note: in the next two verses the word doxazo appears five times. We know it means glory or it can simply mean honor. The repetition indicates it is more complicated than just honor. The father had no need to be glorified, for he is in need of nothing. But Jesus glorified him in the eyes of humans by revealing that the Father was not a distant, angry, judge demanding a blood payment, but a loving, merciful, kind Father spirit. 13:31 When Judas left, Jesus jubilantly declared, Soon, I, a mortal son of Adam, will receive divine power and Fathers glory angel will manifest the power in me. And I will use it to honor El Shaddai, and 13:32 If El Shaddai is honored, by and by, he will honor me, the Messiah/the son of man/ben Adam. 13:33 Then Jesus said, Infants/tekion, I am with you only a little longer. You will look for me, but what I told the rogue Israelis I now tell you, 'Where I am going, you cannot come. 13:34 I am giving you a new commandment to love one another in the same way as I have loved you, you also should love one another. 13:35 This is how everyone will know that you are my students, if you keep on having love for 54

one another." Translators Note: some translators translate Tekion as little Children, But since Jesus forbade them to call anyone Father, he could not be addressing them as his children. He said we are his brothers and sisters so he cannot be our father; infants would be an expression of their spiritual state. 13:36 Shimon/Pebble/Peter asked, Prince where are you going? Jesus replied, right now you cannot go where I am going, but later you will come. 13:37 Pebble/Peter persisted, Prince why cant I come now. I will lay down my life for you. 13:38 "Would you really die for me? I tell you for certain that before the next rooster crows, you will say three times that you don't even know me."

Translators Note: Jesus clearly sees himself as different from God. If he was God, he would just say believe in God. 14:2 14:3

In my Fathers house/Kingdom, there will be many dwelling places for you to rest in. I am going to secure them for you, and when I return, I will take you to them and we will rest in them together. In that day shall the Elect One sit upon a throne of glory, and shall choose their conditions and countless habitations. (Enoch 45:3) You know where I am going and you know how to get there.

14:4

Translators Note: he was going to the Fathers kingdom and they had been taught that if they wanted to come they needed to follow his instructions on how to be born again. But they still didnt understand him. 14: 5 14:6 14:7 Toma asked, Where are you going? How can we find the way? Jesus replied, I am the way, the truth and the eternal life. No one can come to Father, unless they come through me. If you have known me Toma, you will also know my Father. From now on you know him through me and have seen him in me." (GW)

Translators Note: the way is more important than the destination. Too many people are heaven-centered. They do things to get to heaven, or they do things to avoid hell. The Kingdom is not found at the end of the path, the path is the Kingdom. The Way is to be in the kingdom now. Its not where you go, but it is how you travel. A destination-centered faith journey is like following a rainbow, the end keeps moving Obeying his words can get you to the father now -today, all his words and exclusively his words, are truth, only those words by others that harmonize with his

55

words are truth, he is the giver of Zo/eternal life, he is the conduit from the father to you to give you eternal life now and eternal life in the world to come. Invite him into your heart today. Say something like this: Jesus I know you are the messiah and the chosen one to give eternal life. I am through with my old life of sin. I know El Shaddai raised you from the dead and became your father, please send all the good spirits into my life to help me become one of his children and take all the bad spirits out of my life. Please come into my heart and make me like you. Amen. 14:8 Philippos said, Prince Yahoshua, show us the Father. 14:9 Jesus asked him, Have I been with you all this time, and you have not seen the father in me? If you want to know what Father is like, look at me. 14:10 I am his exact reflection. The words that I speak are his words not mine. The miracles I performed were done by him not me. Dont you believe the Father is in me? 14:11 If you have trouble believing that, look at the miracles. Dont they tell you that the father is in me? 14:12 Listen attentively, those who are faithful to me, will do what I do---yes, they will do even greater things, because I am going to the Father. So will we work miracles because Jesus did? Will we raise the dead and heal the sick. Jesus said he did not do the miracles, but the angel of El Shaddais presence; the emissary of the father did the miracles. Unless we have the angel in us, we will not fulfill this promise. It is the Logos Wisdom angel of his presence who moves through Jesus to birth us and it that indwells us, as El Shaddai moves it in you, it will do the things Jesus did through you as your faith grows and you are fully dedicated to do all things for El Shaddais glory and not your own. 14:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. (KJV) Translators Note: We are told to worship only the father, but we can make petitions to Jesus who is now an all-powerful life-giving spirit-man an angel-like man. If you have the angel of El Shaddais presence in you, you may ask for things that will honor the father; but not for things that bring honor to yourself. 14:14 If you ask anything in my name, I will do it for you. Translators Note: if you know your request is the will of El Shaddai and it will bring Glory to El Shaddai Jesus loves to aid in such requests. 14:15 The one who has my instructions/commandments/New Covenant Torah, and keeps (observing) them, that is the one who loves me. 14:16 If you lovingly obey me, then I will ask the Father to send another spirit/angel/holy one to guide you and be with you until the Judgment Day. 14:17 It is the Angel of the Truth. The world rejects it, cannot see it, and does not know it, but you have already experienced it and it will be in you. 14:18 I will not leave you like abandoned infants, but will return to you. 14:19 Within hours the world will no longer see me, but I will reappear to you, and because I have Zo/eternal life, you will also have Zo/eternal life. 14:20 Then you will know that I am one with the Father. You will know that you are one with me, and I am one with you. (CEV) 56

14:21 And the one who loves me, will be loved by my Father, and I will love him, and I will reveal myself to him." (PNT) 14:22 Then Judas/lebbaeus/Thaddaeus (not the Judas from keriot) said, Are you changing your plan, why will you only reappear to us and not everyone? 14:23 Jesus replied: If anyone loves me, they will obey me. Then my Father will love them, and we will come to them and live in them. (CEV) Translators Note: there are many spirits. Some are messengers. Spirits who are messengers are called angels, therefore it is correct to refer to the Holy Spirit as an holy angel. It is incorrect to call the Holy Spirit God for it can only speak what it has heard. It is not allowed to speak its own thoughts. It is forbidden to speak original, thoughts, for it is only a messenger. Jon.16:13 The Spirit doesn't speak on its own. It will tell you only what it has heard from me, and it will let you know what is going to happen. (CEV) It will not speak on his own authority, but it will speak of what it hears.(GNB) for it will not speak from itself, but whatever it hears, it will speak.(LTV) For it will not speak as itself originating what it says, but all that it hears it will speak. (WNT) Another Parakletos? "If you love Me, you will keep My New Torah commandments. And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Parakletos that it may be with you forever; (Joh 14:15) Translators Note: the first Parakletos was the logos/architect/Wisdom angel, the second Parakletos is the Angel of the Truth. The error of previous translators was to think that Jesus was both the Logos and the first Parakletos. The logos/architect/ Wisdom angel, dwelled in the temple (body) of Jesus. The second angel will dwell in the temples (bodies) of believers. The first Parakletos was not El Shaddai and the second Parakletos is not El Shaddai, they are the messengers of El Shaddai. His Bene elohim, spirit children. The Comforter or Teacher? Most English translators have missed the mark by translating the Angel of the Truth as the Comforter. The angel surely has not come to comfort the world for it is to convict the world of its sinfulness. The angel is a teacher and Jesus is its dissertation. It has no thoughts of its own to share. It carries the rod of conviction to keep us following the curriculum. "But the Parakletos the Spirit angel, the pure one, whom the Father will send in My name, that one will teach you all (about me) and will cause you to remember all which I said to you.( Joh 14:26) "When the Parakletos (Angel) I will send to you from the Father comes--the Angel of the Truth issuing from the Father--it will confirm everything about me. (John 15:26) Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Paraketos (angel) will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send it to you. And when it is come, it will reprove the Kosmos of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment. (John 16:7) Moreover, I have much to explain to you about my Gospel: but ye cannot comprehend it now. ( Joh 16:12) When the second parakletos came it instructed the writers of the NT and explained many things to finish the Gospel message. 57

The Students still thought he was going to have a military victory. He (Jesus) only spoke words to them, that they had the power to comprehend. (Mark 4:33) But when the Angel of the Truth shall come, it will lead you into all the Gospel truth. (Joh 16:13) It will not teach you all the truth in the Kosmos, (not history, science, geography etc.) but all the truth about Jesus. It will fully explain everything Jesus said that may now appear dark, or difficult to you. It shall teach nothing contrary to what Jesus taught, and it will make known to you things to come ho erchomenos (the coming one) used of the Messiah. It will not introduce new doctrines, commandments, rituals, alternate ways to be saved, or mystical teachings, nor give a road map of the future. Its mission is to explain clearly, what Jesus taught. It will glorify me; because it will receive of what is mine, and will show [it] to you. Whatever the Father hath, is mine: therefore said I to you that it will receive of what is mine, and will show [it] to you. (Joh 16:14) Question: so if the angel was not to come until Jesus left, why does Jesus say it was dwelling with the apostles and they knew it? But you know it because it dwells with all of you. (Jn 14:17) Answer: Jesus said his words were spirit and the apostles knew his words and believed them. So they knew the voice of El Shaddai via the logos/architect/ Wisdom angel that was in Jesus. Question: How did Jesus get this spirit angel? Answer: at his baptism at the Jordan River, the Father sent down a pneuma, a pure angel/spirit. John the Baptizer said he saw the pneuma angel, it descended as gently as a dove descending and the Logos Wisdom pneuma rested and stayed on Jesus. Just before his death, Jesus promised he would not leave his followers without help, but would petition the father to send another pneuma which would also dwell in them. They would then hear the same familiar voice of the father. A mature Christians temple body is the dwelling place of the father via the logos angel of his presence, Jesus (who is now a man-spirit) and the Angel of the Truth. From our temple our worship goes up to El Shaddai the only God our father, we honor Jesus within us (who has power over all thing except the father) and we esteem the two angels and listen to them for wisdom and truth. 14:24 Those who do not love me do not obey my teaching; not that it is my teaching for it is not, it comes from the Father, who sent me. (GNB) 14:25 I am leaving you my Shalom, and it is far greater than the peace the world can give. I Have told you these things in advance, so when they happen, your faith will be strengthened. 14:26 But the second Parakletos, which is the pure angel/spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, it shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said to you. 14:27 So let not your heart be troubled, neither be afraid. "Peace/shalom/health/well being/prosperity is what I leave with you; it is my own shalom that I give you. My shalom is eternal and not fleeting like the peace the world gives. 14:28 You have already heard me say that I am going and that I will also come back to you. If you really love me, you should be glad that I am going to the Father, because he is greater than I am. 58

14;29 I am telling you all these things before I leave, so when they come to pass, your faith will grow. 14:30 I cannot speak with you much longer, because the ruler of this world Azazel/satan/the devil/the kosmokrator/god/elohim of this world is coming. But he has no power over me. Translators Note: people often think El Shaddai controls the world, but he does not. We are praying for his will to be done on earth. Jesus is about to be put to the test by Satan. The devil will whip him, beat him, nail him in a tree and try to get him to curse El Shaddai. But diabolos will fail and by resisting the devil, Jesus will break him and break his hold on humans. Azazel will no longer hold all who sin in the land of death for on the Judgment Day; he must release them, for he failed to break Jesus, and brought a curse down upon his own head. Jesus is entering his last battle with the full confidence of victory. He has no power over me. 14:31 I am doing what the Father has commanded me to let the world know that I love the Father. Get up! Let us leave this place." (ISV) Chapter 15
(Also Spoken at the Last Supper/Essene Passover Meal)

The Vine Expert, the Grape Plant, the Branches and Jesus Joy-filled Friends 15:1 I am the true grape plant you are the branches. Father is the owner of the vineyard and is a vine expert. 15:2 Every branch that stops producing, he cuts it off and throws it into the fire. Every branch that is producing, he prunes it so it will produce more. 15:3 Since you all have heard my words and obeyed them, they have pruned, purged, and made you pure. 15:4 If you continue to obey the words I spoke, you will be like a healthy branch attached to the vine. However, remember, a branch must stay attached to the vine to bear grapes. 15:5 I repeat, I am the vine and you are the branches anyone who stays connected to me will bring forth an abundant crop. But without me, you can do nothing. 15:6 If you break away from the vine, you will wither and die and be cast into the fire. 15:7 If you abide in me, and my instructions abide in you, you shall ask what you will, and it shall be done for you. 15:8 It brings honor and glory to El Shaddai when you abound in a crop of righteousness/kind deeds/spreading the instructions of Jesus/renouncing the things of the world/leading people to Zo/eternal life through Jesus. 15:9 I love you just as the Father loves me; so remain in my love. (GNB) 15:10 If you obey my New Covenant Torah, I will continue to love you; just as I have obeyed the Father and he continues to love me. 15:11 I have spoken these things to you so that My joy might remain in you and your joy might be full. (MKJV) 15:12 Remember my new commandment: Love everyone like I loved you. 15:13 Greater love has no one but to live his/her life to the last breath for a friend. 15:14 Those who follow my New Covenant Torah are the ones I call friends. 15:15 Slaves dont know what their owners are doing, but I have told you everything Father is doing, so you are not slaves. You are comrades/friends/amigos/buddies/pals/peeps/posse. 15:16 The branches dont produce the grape plant. You did not produce me, but I chose you to be my special branches and you will bear much long lasting fruit so when you ask the father for anything in my name he will do it. 59

15:17 I am giving you these New Covenant commandments so that you may (know how to) love one another." (ISV) 15:18 If the people of this world hate you, just remember that they hated me first. (CEV) 15:19 If you had anything in common with the world, the world would love you as one of its own. But you don't have anything in common with the world. I chose you from the world, and that's why the world hates you. (GW) 15:20 Remember what I told you: 'A servant isn't greater than his master.' If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they did what I said, they will also do what you say. (GW) 15:21 People will do to you exactly what they did to me. They will do it because you belong to me, and they don't know the one who sent me. (CEV) 15:22 My words are El Shaddais standards for right and wrong. If I had not come with these words people would have had an excuse, but since I came and explained the New Covenant Torah, they no longer have a cloak to hide their sins. 15:23 The haters and rejecters are not just hating me and my followers, but they are ultimately hating the father. 15:24 Whoever hates and reject me, even after seeing the marvelous miracles I did which no other man ever did are not only hating me, but also my father. 15:25 But this happened so that the word written in their law might be fulfilled: 'They hated me for no reason.' (ISV) 15:26 But when the second parakletos/angel comes, the Angel of the Truth, that I will ask the Father to send to you, it will declare the truth to you about me. The Eloah of Israel and the Angel of Truth will succor the children of light. (From the Dead Sea Scrolls The Community Rule 1QS 3:24) 15:27 Then you will be witnesses to the world about me for you have known me the longest.

The Future Revelations through the Spirit/Angel of the Truth 16:1 "These things I have spoken to you in order to clear stumbling-blocks out of your path (WNT), so you wont lose your faith. 16:2 Do not be surprised when they remove you from their temples, churches, assemblies, youth groups, and synagogues and even think they are serving Father by killing you. 16:3 They will do this because they do not understand who the father is (El Shaddai the immortal supreme being) and who I am (the messiah, the mortal human being). 16:4 But I have told you this, so that when the time comes for them to do these things, you will remember what I told you. "I did not tell you these things at the beginning, for I was with you, and you were not ready to hear them yet. (GNB) 16:5 Im going to the father who sent me. Isnt anyone going to ask me where that is? 16:6 I can see my words have filled your hearts with sadness. 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; it is expedient for you that I go away: for if I do not go away, the second Parakletos/spirit/Angel of the Truth will not come to you; when I depart, I will petition Father to send it to you. 16:8 And when it comes it will to explain everything about sin, it will explain everything about obtaining righteousness, and it will explain about Judgment. 16:9 It will show people how sin has blinded them to who I am. 16:10 It will have to teach you about righteousness because I will be gone and wont be able to do it anymore. 60

16:11 It will explain the just condemnation and the continuing fall of Azazel/god/ruler/Elohim of this Kosmos 16:12 There is so much more Ive wanted to teach you, but you arent ready. The Angel of the Truth will teach you the rest. Translators Notes: after Jesus ascended to heaven and the Spirit/Angel of the Truth entered the hearts of the early believers certain men were inspired to write the remaining truths about sin, righteousness and judgment. This is what the spirit/angel inspired them to write: At the cross our sins were blotted out and a New Covenant Torah not based on right and wrong was instituted. The New is called the Torah of the Spirit angel of life. Rom 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. The new law is based on faith and grace not on behavior. Jesus initiated it for us. All we can do is extend our faith and lay hold of it and say thank you. It is a free gift of salvation/redemption and Zo/eternal life. We have enough faith because Jesus own faith is given to us. His peace and joy are given to us. His courage and confidence are given to us. El Shaddais righteousness is given to us. The Spirit/Angel of the Truth is given to us. El Shaddai gives us new, obedient, loving hearts, he gives us every spiritual gift. He sanctifies us and makes us blameless. We become heirs to all the promises of the Bible, we receive the blessing of Abraham, and enter now the heavenly kingdom, we receive an everlasting heritage, joy unspeakable, guaranteed salvation and eternal life now and in the world to come, unshakable hope, we are born again into the family of El Shaddai and we cant become unborn. Sample Prayer: Jesus thank you for sharing your faith with me, I believe it and claim the free gift of salvation sent from the father. Thank you El Shaddai for also sharing your greatest gift of your own righteousness. Thank you for transporting me into your kingdom. It is too wonderful for words. Amen 16:13 When the Spirit/Angel of the Truth comes, it will guide you into the full truth. It won't speak on its own. It will speak what it hears and will tell you about things to come. 16:14 The Spirit/angel will bring glory to me by taking my gospel and telling it to you. 16:15 Everything that the Father has is mine. That is why I have said that the Spirit/angel takes my gospel and tells it to you. 16:16 Jesus said, "For a little while you won't see me, but after a while you will see me." 16:17 The students asked, "What does he mean by saying that for a little while we won't see him, but after a while we will see him? What does he mean by saying that he is going to the Father? 16:18 What is this 'little while' that he is talking about? We don't know what he means. (CEV) 16:19 Jesus said: You are wondering what I meant when I said that for a little while you won't see me, but after a while you will see me. 16:20 Soon you will cry and be sad, because I will be murdered but the worldlings will be happy. You will be sad, but later you will be happy. 16:21 When a woman is about to give birth, she is in great pain. But after it is all over, she forgets the pain and is happy, because she has birthed a child. 16:22 Soon you will be very sad. But later I will see you, and you will be so happy that no one will ever be able to take away your joy. 16:23 When that time comes, you won't have to ask me for anything. I tell you that the Father will 61

give you whatever you ask for in my name. 16:24 You have not asked for anything in this way before, but now you may ask in my name. Then it will be given to you, so that you will be happy. Translators Note: before you pray ask Will it honor the Father? 16:25 I have spoken these things to you in parables/proverbs/allegories/figures of speech and riddles, but the time is coming when I shall no more speak to you in parables/proverbs/allegories/figures of speech and riddles, but I will speak to you plainly of the Father. 16:26 You may ask Father in my name, and I won't have to ask him for you. 16:27 Father loves you because you love me, and you believe that I was sent by him. 16:28 I was taken up to the Father as a child and then he sent me back into the world, but soon I will leave the world and return to Father. 16:29 The students said, "Now you are speaking plainly to us! You are not using riddles. 16:30 At last we know that you understand everything, and we don't have any more questions. Now we believe that you truly have come from El Shaddai." 16:31 Jesus asked, Do you really believe me? 16:32 Tonight all of you will be scattered. Each of you will go home and leave me by myself. But Father will be with me, and I won't be alone 16:33 I've told you this so that my shalom will be with you. In the world you'll have trouble/trials/tribulations/sufferings/sorrow. But cheer up! Be brave! I have overcome the world. Cheer up, you are on the winning team. I am the victor, the undefeated champion. I wear the winners glory belt from here on out. Youre my friends, Ill be with you until the last breath. You are my body. You also wear the winners glory belt. Chapter 17
(Jesus Prayer Spoken at the Last Supper/Essene Passover Meal)

Jesus Longest Recorded Prayer 17:1 17:2 17:3 17:4 17:5 Looking up towards heaven Jesus prayed, Father, this is the hour when you will honor me, your son, so I can honor you. You have given me the ability to give eternal life now and eternal life in the era to come to humans (all that respond to your leading). This is what eternal life is - knowing you El Shaddai the one and only Supreme being (mono theos) and me, Jesus, your Prince, the anointed one. I have finished the work you gave me to do of honoring you on the earth. I am longing to receive the Kabod (the empowering armor of glory) you set aside for me before the Kosmos began.

Translators Note: Kabod; translates as abundance, honor, splendor, glory; it contains the idea of good heaviness or weight. The Kabod is a mantle of blinding light. The shekinah cloud glows because of this light, the light blinds men from seeing the angel seated on the throne in the shekinah cloud. And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east: and his voice was like a noise of many waters: and the earth shined with his glory. (Eze 43:2 )

62

In the above passage when Jesus was asking for his Kabod glory it was like a gladiator asking for his equipment. He knew in the final combat with Azazel he would need every bit of kabod that the Father had prepared for him. He wanted the armor of blinding light to overcome the Prince of Darkness. When Jesus says in John 17:22 " I have given them the kabod/ (glory) which you gave me, that they may be one as we are one. He is saying two things: a) Jesus was equipped by the father with the light of truth and thats how he became one with the Father b) Jesus then equipped his Apostles with that light so that they too could share in the same oneness. c) When you are born again you receive the kabod equipment. Jesus never spoke of being crucified, he spoke of being glorified. To him the cross was the arena where he would face the adversary in hand to hand combat before all the watchers of the Kosmos. He knew if he gave in to temptation, he would be defeated, but he had spent his life steeling himself for the moment when He would glorify the father in victory and be fully glorified before El Shaddai and all the watchers. 17:6 I gave the followers you gave me, your name, El Shaddai the Eloha of the Tsebaoth, and your words (the New Covenant Torah), and they believe them and obey them. 17:7 They know that everything I did was You Father working through me. 17:8 I told my followers what you told me, and they accepted it. They know that I came from you, and they believe that you are the one who sent me. (CEV) 17:9 I am praying for them, but not for the wicked ones who love and belong to this world. My followers belong to you, and I am praying for them. (CEV) 17:10 All my students belong to you, and as they have honored me, they know they honor you. 17:11 And now I am about to leave the world to come to you, but these will remain in the world. Holy Papa, preserve them by your own name El Shaddai so that they may be one, as we are one. Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rides upon the heavens by his name EL SHADDAI, and rejoice before him. Psa 68:4 "Those who know thy name put their trust in thee" (Ps.9:10). "Some boast of chariots, and some of horses; but we boast of the name of El Shaddai our Eloha" (Ps.20:7). "I will tell of thy name to my brethren" (Ps.22:22). "My people shall know my name" (Isa.52:6). Because I will publish the name of El Shaddai. (Deu 32:3) let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee. (Psa 5:11) O El Shaddai our Adonai, how excellent is thy name in all the earth. (Psa 8:1) Give unto El Shaddai the glory due unto his name. (Psa 29:2) magnify El Shaddai with me, and let us exalt his name. (Psa 34:3) I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations. (Psa 45:17) Translators Note: his name is El Shaddai the Eloah of the Tsebaoth- El Shaddai the supreme God of the angel hosts 63

17:12 While I was with them, I protected them by your name El Shaddai I preserved them, and not one of them went astray except the one who was destined for destruction, Judas Ben Shimon of Keriot, the Son of Perdition, so that the Scripture might be fulfilled. Even my closest friend whom I trusted, the one who ate my bread, has lifted his heel against me. Psalm.49:1 (GW) 17:13 I am on my way to you Abba, but before I leave this world, I ask you to give my students the same joy you gave to me. Give them my joy, please. 17:14 I told them your Gospel/message/the New Covenant Torah. So now the rogues of this world hate them, because my students don't belong to this world, just as I don't. 17:15 Father, I am not asking you to remove my followers from the world, but to keep them safe from the evil one. 17:16 They no longer belong to this world, just as I no longer belong. 17:17 Your Gospel is truth. Sanctify/consecrate/purify/cleanse and make them holy by your logos/wisdom angel. 17:18 As you have ordained and commissioned me as your ambassador to the world. I have ordained and commissioned them as your ambassadors to the world. 17:19 I have dedicated myself to their sanctification by the Truth. 17:20 I am not just praying for the students in this room, but for all who will come to believe in me as the result of their missionary endeavors. 17:21 I pray that all of these students will continue to have unity in the way that you and I, have unity. I pray that they may be united with us so that the world will believe that you have sent me. 17:22 And the logos/Wisdom angel that you gave me I gave to them that they may be one as we are one. 17:23 I am in them, and you are in me. So they are completely united. In this way the world knows that you have sent me and that you have loved them in the same way you have loved me. (GW) 17:24 Father I pray that your students, which you gave me, will one day reign at my side and behold the full Kabod Glory, which you set aside for me before the foundation of the earth. 17:25 Oh righteous/perfect/holy Papa the world has only imperfectly known you, but I have perfectly known you and I have taught these students perfect knowledge of you. They know that you sent me. 17:26 I have revealed to them your name El Shaddai and they will continue to spread it I will publish the name of El Shaddai. (Deu 32:3

in order that the love you have for me may be in them, and so that I also may be in them. Amen. (GNB) Chapter Eighteen Jesus is Arrested and Tried by Ananus/ the ex-high Priest
(Its still Tuesday)

18:1 After the prayer, Jesus and is students left Jerusalem, crossed the Bridge over the Kidron brook and ascended the ravine to a garden. Translators Note: they would have left Jerusalem through the eastern gate, and gone down into the valleyof Gey-hinnon. This is where the Israelis burned their 64

children as offerings to Moloch. A small brook emptied filth from the temple area and trash was burned there. The Kidron ravine is the path David took when he was forced to flee Jerusalem by his son Absalom. David went up the Mount of Olives weeping. Jesus went up also in sorrow. David went up to save himself, Jesus went up to save the people of the world. 18:2 18:3 Jesus often taught his students in this garden (Gethsemane) and it was well known to Judas ben Shimon of Keriot. who soon arrived with temple guards, a band of men and rulers/Elohim from the Pharisees and rulers/Elohim from the chief priests: Gamaliel I (the grandson of Hillel, Shammai, Jochanan ben Zaccai and Alexander Lysimachus and the Captains of the Temple "Ben Phineas, governor of the seals; Ahijah, who was set over the drink-offerings, and Matthiah Ben Samuel, that presided over the lots (Lightfoot). The Israeli Temple guards and band of men were carrying swords, staves and clubs, torches and oil lamps. Jesus, fully realizing what was happening, went to meet them and asked, Who are you looking for? Jesus of Netzeret, they replied Jesus said, I am he. Judas was standing silently in the crowd. As soon as Jesus said I am he, the mob drew back and fell to the ground. Jesus asked them again, Who are you looking for? Again they said, Jesus of Netzeret. I told you I am he. If you are only looking for me, then let the other men here go free. He said this to fulfill the prophecy, Of those that you gave me, I lost none. Then Shimon/Pebble/Peter drew his sword and struck off the right ear of the High Priests slave. The slaves name was Malchus/king. Jesus told Pebble/Peter, "Put your sword away. Shall I not drink the cup that Father has granted me?" The Captain of the temple guards, and the band of armed men, and the rulers/Elohim arrested Jesus and fettered his hands.

18:4 18:5

18:6 18:7 18:8 18:9 18:10 18:11 18:12

18:13 The Temple guards first took him to the house of Ananus, the retired illegal High Priest ; he was the ringleader of the rogues/elohim. Ananus had appointed his son-in-law Yosef Kayafa as his illegal successor. 18:14 This was the same Kayafa who had told the rogue leaders/elohim, "It is better if one person dies for the people." 18:15 When the Apostles fled, two of them, Pebble/Peter, and another student, had followed the mob with Jesus. The other student personally knew the High Priest and easily entered the courtyard. 18:16 After a while, he spoke to the woman gatekeeper and arranged for Pebble/Peter to enter. 18:17 As Pebble/Peter came in she asked, Arent you one of Jesus followers? No I am not, Pebble/Peter replied. 65

18:18 The Temple guards had built a fire in the courtyard and many slaves and other people were sitting around it warming themselves. Pebble/Peter came and began to warm himself. Translators Notes:

Ananus had grown wealthy by buying cheap and selling at outrageous prices in the temple; and the shops where the Temple victims were sold were called The Bazaars of Ananus. They were the property of the family of Ananus; it was by the exploitation of the worshippers, by trading on the sacred sacrifices that Ananus had amassed a fortune. The Jews themselves hated the household of Ananus. There is a passage in the Talmud which says: "Woe to the house of Ananus! Woe to their serpent's hiss! They are High Priests; their sons are keepers of the treasury; their sons-in-law are guardians of the Temple; and their servants beat the people with staves." (Barclay)
Since 6 AD Ananus had bribed his way into the High Priesthood. He placed four of his sons as puppets in the office and Yosef Kayafa was his son-in-law. He was the power behind the throne and would keep his family members in the Priesthood for the next 40 years. 18:19 Ananus questioned Jesus about his students and about his New Covenant Torah. 18:20 Jesus said I have no secret teachings. I have always taught in public in the synagogues and the temple. 18:21 It is improper to question the accused, you should question witnesses. Ask those whom I taught and they will tell you my message. Translators Note: all judicial proceedings according to the Torah of Moses, were based upon the testimony of witnesses. No man was allowed to testify on his own behalf. He was, in effect, saying: "Take your evidence about me in the proper and legal way. Examine your

witnesses, which you have every right to do; stop examining me, which you have no right to do." (Barclay)
18:22 As soon as Jesus said this one of the temple police officers struck Jesus in the mouth saying, Thats no way to speak to the high priest/Elohim. Jesus, could have said, You know he has not been the High Priest for many years, and when he was in office, he was not legally the High Priest, but a pretender for he purchased his position, but he said, 18:23 If I have said anything evil what was it? And if I broke no law, then why did you hit me? 18:24 Then Ananus sent Jesus, still fettered, across the way to the palace of Kayafa. 18:25 Someone sitting by the fire recognized Pebble/Peter and said, You are also one of his followers. I saw you one day with Jesus. Pebble/Peter denied it saying, No, I am not. 18:26 One of Ananus slaves was by the fire. He was related to Malchus whose ear Pebble/Peter cut off. He asked Pebble/Peter, Didnt I see you in the garden with Jesus? 18:27 Pebble/Peter denied it and right then, he heard a rooster crowing. The Next Morning the Traditional Passover Day Jesus was taken to See Pilate
(Its still Tuesday)

The kings of the earth take their stand and high officials themselves have massed together as one against El Shaddai and against his anointed one. (Ps.2:2) 18:28 Early the next morning Jesus was taken from Kayafas house to the Roman 66

governor's palace by (Gamaliel I, Shammai, Jochanan ben Zaccai and Alexander Lysimachus) the rogue Mosaic Law Experts, and the rogue Senators-the ruling Elohim of Israel and a band of Israeli soldiers. Translators Note: the Roman governor at that time was named Pontius Pilate. Pilate is believed to have come from Scotland, he ruled from 26 to 36 AD. The Jewish Encyclopedia says,

His administration was characterized by corruption, violence, robberies, ill treatment of the people, and continuous executions without even the form of a trial. Pilate looted funds from the sacred treasury in order to provide for the construction of an aqueductwhen the citizens protested he sent among the crowds disguised soldiers carrying concealed daggers, who massacred a great number, not only of the rioters, but of casual spectatorsPilate's last deed of cruelty, and the one which brought about his downfall, was the massacre of a number of Samaritans who had assembled on Mount Gerizim to dig for some sacred vessels. http://www.Israeliencyclopedia.com/view.jsp?artid=312&letter=P&search=pilate
The Israeli authorities/elohim did not go inside the Roman Praetorian/palace, for to enter a non-Israelis living quarters was to become unclean and they wanted to keep themselves ritually clean, in order to be able to eat the Passover meal. 18:29 So since they would not come in, Pilate went out to them and asked what charges they had against Jesus. 18:30 The Israeli authorities/Elohim replied, If this man was not a malefactor/criminal/evildoer we would not have brought him to you. 18:31 Pilate said to them, "Take him yourselves and judge him by your own laws." The Israeli authorities/Elohim said to him, "We cannot. You Romans have made it against the law for us to put anyone to death." Translators Note: the Israelis used stoning, hanging, and sometimes fire to execute evil-doers, but the Romans regularly used crucifixion. So what Jesus said about being lifted up upon a cross was about to happen. Pilate ordered Jesus to be brought inside to the Judgment Hall, and then asked him, Are you the King of the Jews? Question: Does Pilate mean are you the king of the tribe of Judah, or the king of all the tribes of Israel? Answer: Pilate means the entire nation? Hundreds of years ago Israel split into two nations. 9.5 tribes went north and with the Samaritans called themselves Israel. None of them were Jews from the tribe of Judah. 2.5 tribes went south (Judah, Benjamin and half of the tribe of the Levites) and called themselves Judah. All of the Jews, Benjamites and Levites were Israelis. Over the years refugees had left the north and filtered down to Judah in the south so all twelve tribes were living in Judah but they were considered as Jews of Judah When the Romans came on the scene, the Northern kingdom was no more and Judea was filled with members from all 12 tribes. They were all Israelis living in Judea, but many were Jewish Israelis from the tribe of Judah. So, Pilate is not asking are you the king of the tribe of Judah. He is asking are you the king of all these (people) the Israelis living in Judea? 18:34 Jesus asked, Are you truly trying to understand this for yourself? Or are you only 67 18:32 18:33

trying to confirm what the illegal rogue Chief priests said about me? Pilate said, Only an Israeli would care about these things, do I look like an Israeli? Your own nation and Chief priests (Jochanan ben Zaccai and Alexander Lysimachus), have brought you to me. What did you do? 18:36 Jesus said, The Kingdom I belong to is not of this Kosmos. If it were, my followers would have fought to keep me from being handed over to the Rogue leaders of the nation. 18:37 Pilate said, Ah ha! So you are a King then? "You are saying that I am a king," Jesus told him. "I was born into this world to tell about the truth. And everyone who is on the side of the truth will listen to my voice. 18:35 a good ear will hear wisdom with all desire. (Ecclesiasticus (from the Latin Vulgate): 3:31) Pilate turned his back, and as he walked away, he rhetorically quipped, What is the truth? (It is clear by Pilates reply that he, like most of the elite in Rome, followed the philosophy of Pyrrho, the Skeptic, which denied that truth can be known. They believed only fools spoke of the truth.) It is still a popular belief today known as postmodernism. For them their main truth they cling to is that there is no truth. They seem to think their statement is true. If there is no absolute truth, than their statement is not true and there must be absolute truth. Pilate went back outside and said to the Israeli authority/Elohim, "I don't find this man guilty of anything! 18:39 Now, since I usually set a prisoner free for you at Passover, would you like for me to set free this so called king of the Jews?" 18:40 They shouted, "No, not him! We want Barabbas." Now Barabbas was a terrorist. Translators Note: Barabbass name was also Jesus; he was a Zealot. The Zealots (baryonim) called the leader of their movement, Judas of Gamala Father, so Barabbas is the son of this father. Josephus said the Zealots were to blame for the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD for they destroyed decades of food supplies to force the Israelis to fight the Romans. They were violent assassins who hated the Sadducees as much as the Romans. Barabbas loved his country. Each of us must decide which Jesus we will follow. Will we follow Jesus, the patriot, who asks us to sacrifice our lives for our country, or the Jesus who tells us your countries are ruled by Azazel, and your true country is not of this world. I believe there are pages missing from this Gospel of John. Why introduce Barabbas and then not follow through with the story of the people choosing Barabbas? There has to be a section missing. Pilate offers to let Jesus go and the people say give us Barabbas and then the next scene Jesus is being tortured and whipped and the powerful, dramatic scene of the people choosing Barabbas is left out. It has to be missing. Chapter Nineteen The Torture, Crucifixion and Burial of Jesus Translators Note: When the first man, Adam sinned two things entered the Kosmos: Sin and Death known as -the curse. The curse stated that anyone who sinned would become a permanent prisoner in the land of death. The administrator 68 18:38

of the curse was an evil angel named Azazel/satan/Baalzebul/Beliel/the devil/the kosmoskrator/god/Elohim of this world. The only way to reverse the curse was if another man, a second Adam, would live a sinless life. Jesus saved/redeemed/ransomed us from Satan not by his death, but by living a sinless life to his last breath. The crucifixion was satans attempt to break Jesus. Jesus faced two major temptations. Firstly, he was tempted to use his miracle power to save himself, however to do so would be to admit defeat, and he would break the rules of the contest. Second, and this was the greatest temptation, satan was going to make it look like El Shaddai delighted in bloody human sacrifices and had even killed his own beloved son to satisfied his proud sense of justice. Jesus was tempted to stop the proceedings to defend his fathers good name and reputation. 19:1 Pilate ordered Jesus to receive 39 lashes with a cat-o-nine-tails. The scourge/cat-o-nine-tails was a long leathern thong, studded here and there with sharpened pieces of lead and bits of bone. It literally tore a man's back to ribbons. Sometimes it tore a man's eye out. Some men died under it. Some men emerged from the ordeal raving mad. Few retained consciousness through it. (Barclay) After the scourging Pilate had him re-dressed in a Roman robe of royalty, the color of deep scarlet purple. The Roman soldiers braided a crown made from an acanthus thornbush, they jammed it into his head. 19:3 Then the soldiers mocked him saying Long live the king of the Jews! and they punched him repeatedly with their fists. 19:4 Pilate went back outside to the Israeli authorities/Elohim (Gamaliel I, Shammai, Jochanan ben Zaccai and Alexander Lysimachus) the rogue Mosaic Law Experts, and the rogue Senators and said Ive scourged him and Im giving him back to you for I have found him not guilty of anything 19:5 Jesus was led out of the Praetorian his blood mixing with the scarlet purple robe and wearing the crown of thorns and Pilate said to the rogues Behold the man. 19:6 When the rogue Chief priests/senators/Mosaic law experts and the Israeli soldiers saw him, they shouted Crucify him! Crucify him! Pilate said, You crucify him. He is not guilty of any crime. 19:7 A crowd had gathered and someone shouted, He claimed to be the Son of God! Our Torah says that he must be put to death." 19:8 when Pilate heard them shouting he became frightened. 19:9 Pilate took Jesus back inside and asked Where are you from? Jesus weak and bleeding/ barely able to stand, refused to speak. 19:10 Pilate said to him. Are you going to play deaf? Dont you realize I can either set you free or nail you in a tree? 19:11 Jesus said, All your power is derived from the archon/evil/spirit/angels, the archons who rule this world through their hierarchy, they gave you your power. You are Guilty, but those who are controlling you, and had me brought to you (the archon/evil/spirit/angels), have the greater guilt. 19:12 After understanding this Pilate began looking for a way out of the situation and a way to release him. But the Israeli/ruler/Elohim realizing that Pilate might weaken, were outside shouting, Pilate, If you let this man go, you will be disloyal to your God/Tiberias/the Caesar. Whoever set himself up as a king is an enemy of your God/Tiberias/the Caesar. 19:2

69

Translators Note: Augustus was the first Roman Emperor. He was born in 63 BC as Gaius Octavius Thurinus . He was the adopted son of his great-uncle Julius Caesar and after he came to power in 27 BC was known as Gaius Julius Caesar Octavianus. The Roman senate conferred the title God on Augustus, and Romans thereafter worshipped all the Caesars as Gods. Augustus died in 14 BC and Tiberias/Claudias/Nero was the Caesar being worshipped as the Roman God during the lifetime of Jesus. Tiberias died in 37 AD. 19:13 When frightened, Pilate heard their frenzied screaming, he brought the bloodied Jesus back outside. The slaves erected a tribunal throne on the square/Gabbatha. 19:14 It was 9:00 Am Tuesday the day they were preparing to slay the Passover lambs the Day of Preparation. Pilate said to the crowd, Behold your king. (ripped and bleeding). 19:15 The Israelis shouted, Away with him! Kill him! Crucify him/Impale him! Shall I impale your king? Pilate asked. The rogue Israeli authorities/Elohim (Gamaliel I, Shammai, Jochanan ben Zaccai and Alexander Lysimachus) the rogue Mosaic Law Experts, and the rogue Senators cried, We have no king but Tiberias/the Caesar/God. 19:17 Then Pilate handed Jesus over to the rogue/Israeli rulers/Elohim to be impaled, and the soldiers took him forcefully. Translators note: because of the way John wrote this it sounds like the Israelis are crucifying Jesus, but Jesus clearly said the gentiles would kill him. Luk 18:32 For I will be handed over to the gentiles and will be mocked, insulted, and spit on. Luk 18:33 After they have whipped me, they will kill me, but on the third day I will rise again." Jesus is Impaled and Nailed and Hung in a Tree 19:18 Despite his torn flesh and weakened condition, he carried the impalement pole/stauros/cross-piece to a place outside the city called Skull Hill/Golgatha/Calvary. Translators Note: the Greek word used here for cross is stauros which is a single pole. As I understand it, he carried one pole to the site, had his hands attached to it by ropes and spikes, and was hoisted into a low tree to which his feet were then nailed. The cross was an ancient symbol of the Bull cult and Constantine used it as a symbol for his Roman troops when he conquered Rome. He called himself Pontiff Maximus which was the title for the High Priests of Mithraism. When he declared Christianity the official religion of the Roman Empire, it was Mithraized Christianity, and not true Christianity. Prior to Constantine all Christians were pacifists. After Constantine, only Christians could serve in the Roman army. The coup was complete. Mithra won. Only small handfuls of Christians remained faithful to the Gospel; just as it is today. 19:18 There they crucified him, along with two others, one on each side of him with Jesus in the middle. (ISV) 19:19 Pilate wrote the reason for his death on a placard and the soldiers fastened it in the tree. 19:20 It was in Hebrew, Greek and Latin and read. JESUS OF NETZERET KING OF THE JEWS. Hebrew: Jesus Netzerim Melek Yehudi Greek: SOUS O NAZAIOS O BASILEUS TN IOUDLIN Latin: Iesus Nazareth Rex Iudaeorum INRI 70

19:21 So the chief priests/elohim went to Pilate and said, "Why did you write that he is King of the Jews? You should have written, 'He claimed to be King of the Jews.' " (CEV) 19:22 Pilate answered, "What I have written stays written." (GNB) 19:23 When the Roman soldiers had crucified Jesus, they took his clothes and divided them four ways so that each soldier could have a share. His robe was left over. It didn't have a seam because it had been woven in one piece from top to bottom. (GW) 19:24 The soldiers said to each other, "Let's not rip it apart. We will gamble to see who gets it." This happened so that the Scriptures would come true, which say, " Psa 22:18 They took my clothes and gambled for them. The soldiers then did what they had decided. (CEV) 19:25 Standing near the crucifixion tree was Jesus mother and his aunt, and Miriam the wife of Cleophas/Alphaeus and his student Miriam from the town of Magdala. 19:26 When Jesus looked down from the tree he saw his favorite student nearing his mother and he said to his mother Dearest woman, this man will now be a son to you. 19:27 And he said to his favorite student, Take care of my mother. She is now your mother. That day his favorite student took her into his home. 19:28 After this, when Jesus realized that everything was now completed, he said (in order to fulfill the Scripture), "I'm thirsty." (ISV) 19:29 A jar of sour wine/vinegar was standing there, so they put a sponge full of the vinegar on a branch of hyssop and held it to his mouth. (ISV) 19:30 After Jesus sipped some of the wine/ vinegar, he said, "It is finished." Then he bowed his head and breathed out his last breath. Translators Note: it was nearing sundown Tuesday, when the typical Israeli family was killing its Passover lamb. The new day, Wednesday, the Israeli Passover, a yearly Shabbat, would begin at sundown. 19:31 Then the Jewish authorities asked Pilate to allow them to break the legs of the men who had been crucified, and to take the bodies down from the crosses. They requested this because the next day was a Special Sabbath , and they did not want the bodies to stay on the crosses on the Sabbath, since the coming Sabbath was especially holy. (GNB) 19:32 The Roman soldiers first broke the legs of the other two men who were nailed there. 19:33 But when they came to Jesus, they saw that he was already dead, and they did not break his legs. 19:34 One of the soldiers stuck his spear into Jesus's side, and blood and water came out. 19:35 The one who saw this is an eyewitness. What he says is true, and he knows that he is telling the truth so that you, too, will believe. 1936 This was done to make the scripture come true: "Not one of his bones will be broken." (GNB) 1937 In addition, another passage of Scripture says, "They will look on the one whom they pierced." (ISV) Zec. 12:10 I, the LORD, will make the descendants of David and the people of Jerusalem feel deep sorrow and pray when they see the one they pierced with a spear. They will mourn and weep for him, as parents weep over the death of their only child or their first-born. 19:38 After this, Yosef, who was from the town of Arimathea, asked Pilate if he could take 71

Jesuss body. (Yosef was a follower of Jesus, but in secret, because he was afraid of The Israeli authorities/elohim.) Pilate told him he could have the body, so Yosef went (with his servants) and took it away. 19:39 Bonai/ Nicodemos, the one who had first come to Jesus at night, went with Yosef and brought 75 pounds of a myrrh and aloe mixture. 19:40 These two men took the body of Jesus and bound it with strips of linen. They laced the strips with spices. This was the Israeli custom for burial. (GW) 19:41 Near the place where Jesus had been nailed in the tree, there was a tomb that had never been used, in a garden. 19:42 Yosef and Bonai/Nicodemos and their servants put Jesus in that tomb, since that day was the Jewish day of preparation and since the tomb was nearby.
(It was still Tuesday just before sunset; Wednesday was about to begin)

Chapter Twenty The Resurrection of Jesus

Jesus went into the grave a few minutes before sundown on Tuesday. On Wednesday, before sunset makes 24 hours. Thursday before sunset, makes 48 hours and Friday before sunset, makes 72 hours (three days and three nights). He resurrected on Friday (thats why its called Good Friday) just before sunset and as the night began, the Saturday Shabbat began. Jesus had been in a state of absolute death, no movement, no breath, no traveling to hell to fight the devil. He was dead, no consciousness, lifeless. On Saturday, he rested and regained his strength.
20:1 On Sunday morning while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance. (CEV) 20:2 So she ran to Shimon Pebble/Peter and the other student, whom Jesus loved. She told them, "They have removed the Adoni/master/teacher/Princes body from the tomb, and I don't know where they've put it." 20:3 So Pebble/Peter and the other student began running towards the tomb. 20:4 Both of them were running together, but the other student outran Pebble/Peter and reached the tomb first. (ESV) 20:5 He bent over and saw the strips of linen cloth lying inside the tomb, but he did not go in. (CEV) 20:6 Shimon Pebble/Peter arrived after him and went into the tomb. He saw the strips of linen lying there. (GW) 20:7 He also saw the piece of cloth that had been used to cover Jesuss face. It was rolled up and in a place by itself. (CEV) 20:8 Then the other student, who arrived at the tomb first, went inside, looked, and believed. (ISV) 20:9 Despite all that Jesus had taught, them they still not understand that according to the Scriptures, he was going to rise from the grave/the Land of Death. 20:10 So the two of them hurried back to the home. Translators Note: it must have been the home of the beloved student where Mary the Mother of Jesus was to give her the good news. It looks like this is where many students were hiding. 72

20:11 20:12 20:13 20:14 20:15

Meanwhile Miriam from Magdala returned to the tomb. She bent over to look in; she was sobbing. Inside she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and one at the foot of where Jesuss body had lain. The angels asked her, Dear woman why are you sobbing? She said, Because they have taken the body of my Prince and I dont know where they put it. After she had said this, she turned around and noticed Jesus standing there, without realizing that it was Jesus. (ISV) Jesus said to her, "Woman, why are you crying? Who are you looking for?" Thinking he was the gardener, she said to him, "Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will take him away." (ISV)

Translators Note: Her inability to recognize him was the result of her many tears clouding her vision. 20:16 Jesus said to her, Miriam. She looked up and said Oh greatest of all Princes. 20:17 Jesus said to her, "Do not cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to my brothers and sister/students, and tell them, 'I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God. Translators Note: its pretty hard to believe Jesus is God, if he says he is going to his God. God cant have a God that would be two Gods. 20:18 Miriam of Magdala ran to tell his students that she had seen Jesus the Prince/master/teacher/elohim and told them everything he told her. 20:19 later that same day in the late afternoon, many students were in the house. They were afraid that the rogue Israeli authorities might arrest them, so the doors were closed. Then Jesus came to them and stood in their midst. Shalom, he said to them. 20:20 He showed them his wounded hands and side. When they were certain it was him, their Adoni/master they were filled with exceeding, unspeakable joy. 20:21 Shalom, he said again. As the father commissioned me and sent me to the world, so I now commission you and send you to the world. 20:22 When he said this, he blew breath from his mouth on them and said Receive the holy/pure/Angel of the Truth. 20:23 Whosoever sins you remit, they are remitted unto them; and whosoever sins you retain, they are retained. Translators Note: The Logos angel of wisdom was given the power to forgive sins, Jesus received that power, and now he gives it to an undisclosed number of students who were in the house. (Toma was absent) Doubting Toma Sees and Believes 20:24 The Apostle Toma was not with the others when Jesus appeared. 20:25 So they told him, "We have seen the risen Prince!" But Toma said, "First, I must see the nail scars in his hands and touch them with my finger. I must put my hand where the spear went into his side. I won't believe unless I do this!" 20:26 Eight days later, the Apostles were all sequestered in the same room and Toma was with them. Jesus entered and stood in their midst. Shalom, he said, 73

20:27 then he looked at Toma and said, Toma put your fingers in my hands, and side wounds so that you may believe. Stop doubting and have faith!" 20:28 Toma said, You are my Prince and Elohim, (my master and the ruler of Israel who stands in the place of El Shaddai). 20:29 Jesus said, How happy for you Toma because after you saw, you believed. But how much happier will those be who can believe without seeing anything. 20:30 Jesus worked many miracles that were not written down, 20:31 but these were written in this scroll so that you might believe that Jesus is the Messiah and that he is the unique, one of a kind son of El Shaddai through whom you may receive Zo/eternal life now and in the age to come. Translators Note: verse 31 is a logical and completely good ending for this Gospel. Many scholars and readers have found chapter 21 to be an awkward ending. Until recently although many people questioned its authenticity, there were no existing Gospels of John that did not have chapter 21. Recently however a 4th Century Coptic gospel was unearthed. The papyrus is in the Bodleian Library in Oxford and is registered as MS Copt.e.150(P). The last 25 verses in Chapter 21 seem to have the same style of previous chapters but the overall effect is jarring and moves the ending away from the importance of Jesus mission to the teaching ministry of Peter which seems decidedly out of character from the rest of this remarkably cogent and focused book. It is therefore my decision not to include chapter 21. Sample Prayer: Jesus I believe it all. I believe El Shaddai chose you, a mortal man for your sinless life and called you his one of a kind son and then when you died, begot you from the dead as his true son, now a spirit-man. I believe you want to live in my heart by faith, but first I must renounce/repent of my current heart that has brought me only sin and sorrow. Please send the Logos Wisdom angel to give me a new heart where you can dwell. You are my master, high priest, advocate messiah and savior. I want to obey your New Testament Gospel and get to love you and El Shaddai more and do everything for his glory. Amen. By faith I claim it. robertroberg@gmail.com

Appendix A My Translation Method In addition to the many English translations, I used several Greek, Hebrew , Syriac, Coptic and Aramaic texts. I do not claim to be an expert, but I have studied the experts and feel what I present is trustworthy. If I used a phrase or two directly from another translator, it was unintentional. Whenever I quoted large sections, I have tried to note from which translation it was taken. I do have many direct phrases from the Authorized King James version, and I do have copyright permission for it from Thomas Nelson Company of Nashville, TN. I also have permission from William Zeitler to quote from the Faithful New Testament http://faithfulbible.com .I have used Courier New Font to emphasize his work. I also used many OT quotes from http://home.aol.com/kwdo/gospelspreface.html Where you will find extensive footnotes on the texts used for Keith Winterowds Concordant Study of the Gospels based on the Leningrad Codex (the oldest complete New Testament). In all these versions, I substituted the word El Shaddai for YHVH, or the word Eloah, when Lord referred to God, and I used the name Jesus, or Adoni, when it referred to Jesus (Jesus) . A good resource is www.biblebureau.com , which has over 100 English translations online. I quoted somewhat randomly from various Old and New Testament translations looking always for the one that gave the clearest translation of a verse.
