The Book of Jasher Sacred-textsApocrypha Referred to in Joshua and Second Samuel Faithfully Translated "Is not this written in the Book of Jasher?" This is one of the apochrypal Books of Jasher. There is also another spurious Book of Jasher, published 1750, in which Jasher is treated as the name of the author. This text covers much of the same ground as the traditional Mosaic books of the Bible, from the creation of the world to the death of Moses, albeit with several minor variations. Proof That God Exists Favourite Quotes I realize that a few sites, such as Stumbleupon are linking directly to the 'favourite quotes' page without going through the proof. Please do enjoy the quotes, and feel free to e-mail me with some that you may like, but please also take the time to go through the proof by clicking 'The Proof' tab at the column on the left. For the heresy hunters I in no way endorse the views of anyone quoted on this page. A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell. Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened. The loneliest moment in life is when you have just experienced that which you thought would deliver the ultimate, and it has just let you down. I do not feel obliged to believe that same God who endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect had intended for us to forgo their use. Peter Huff

Hebrew Name for God - The Messiah (Mashiach) The honor and majesty with which David tells us (Psalm 104) that GodHimself is clothed He will bestow on the Messiah. As it is said,'His glory is great in Thy salvation, honour and majesty hast Thou laid upon Him.' (Numbers Rabbah 14) Introduction Messiah in the Midrash There is a long tradition of midrash (commentary) concerning the Mashiach among the Jewish sages. From the time of creation constant reference is made in Holy Writ to Messiah and the Messianic hope of Israel. Messiah and New CreationWhen God first created the "generations" of the heavens and the earth, the word toldot (תולדות) is used (Gen. 2:4). The name "Perez" (פרץ) means "breach" (from paratz, meaning "to break through"). The Restored Vav is a picture of the Mashiach who would would descend from the "generations" of the line of Perez. To Anoint Mashach.Qal 3ms; to anoint or smear with oil; to consecrate. The person (or thing) anointed by God was called mashiach - an "anointed one" or "chosen one": Mashiach His Messiah

section6 Introduction Of the twenty-seven books in the New Testament, fourteen have traditionally been attributed to the great missionary Paul of Tarsus. These fourteen books all take the form of letters addressed to a given individual or community. In the traditional canonical ordering of the New Testament, these fourteen books are arranged in a block following Acts, and separated into three groups: the nine letters addressed to communities, the four letters addressed to individuals, and Hebrews. Within each grouping, the traditional canonical system orders the books according to length. Thus, a traditional New Testament arrangement will list the books as follows: Romans, 1 and 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 and 2 Thessalonians, 1 and 2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon, and Hebrews. During the winter of 57–58 a.d., Paul was in the Greek city of Corinth. Summary Because he is not personally familiar with the Roman church, Paul begins his letter by introducing himself.

A Nazarene Looks at the Book of Mormon Part 1 - Nazarene Space By James Scott Trimm The Book of Mormon makes a major mistake from a Nazarene standpoint. The Book of Mormon does not represent the teachings of the Bible, but instead presents the teachings Protestant Christians have BELIEVED are in the Bible. Although the Book of Mormon, unlike the Bible, presents a continuous story line running from "Old Testament Times" through into "New Testament Times"; the Book of Mormon is still clearly dividable into "Old Testament" and "New Testament" portions. ...that our children may know the deadness of the law; and they by knowing the deadness of the law, may look forward unto that life which is in Christ, and know for what end the law was given. "...you must keep the performances and ordinances of God until the law shall be fulfilled which was given to Moses." - 2Nephi 25:27, 30 (supposedly between 559 & 545 BC) "...but I say to you, that the time shall come when it shall no more be expedient to keep the law of Moses." - Mosiah 13:27 (supposedly in 148 BC)

Popular Myths About the Bible Well, perhaps there's another view that we can examine by looking at Scripture. Remember, Jesus was a Jew and the Jewish Sabbath is Saturday; Christians are the ones who observe Sunday as Sabbath. Jesus made a direct, prophetic statement concerning His death: "FOR AS JONAH WAS THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS IN THE WHALE'S BELLY; SO SHALL THE SON OF MAN BE THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS IN THE HEART OF THE EARTH" (Matthew 12:40 KJV). So, Jesus may have been crucified Wednesday and arose on Saturday: Wednesday - 6pm - Burial & Night 1 Thursday - Day 1 & Night 2 Friday - Day 2 & Night 3 Saturday - Day 3 Jewish Sabbath* *The Jewish Sabbath is not so much a day as a period of time. So, before sunrise Sunday (the first day of the week) morning: "The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, (the tomb) and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre" (John 20:1 KJV).

Home Page The Letters of Paul [Home] [Contacts] [Comparisons] Romans | 1 Corinthians | 2 Corinthians | Galatians | Ephesians | Philippians | Colossians1 Thessalonians | 2 Thessalonians | 1 Timothy | 2 Timothy | Titus | Philemon Paul wrote thirteen letters which are included in the New Testament. Some scholars add the letter to the Hebrews. Most disagree that Paul wrote it. Therefore, I am not including it in this essay. A number of the Scriptures in our family library provide subject headings for these epistles. Information about Paul, the places where the citizens lived (the first nine epistles), and the persons (to whom the last three are addressed) comes from Smith's Bible Dictionary. Known as Saul prior to his ministry, Paul was born of Hebrew parents about A.D. 5, or a few years earlier, in Tarsus, a city of Cilicia. After his miraculous conversion in A.D. 37, he participated in missionary expeditions. Date of Writing (C.E.): 57-58 (Reese); 42-45 (Klassen); 58 (Smith); 57 (Phillips); 57 or 58 (Williams).

Early Christian Writings: New Testament, Apocrypha, Gnostics, Ch Top 10 Things We Take For Granted Miscellaneous You wake up one morning and realize that you’re terribly late for work. What do you do? You spring out of bed, hop on your feet, slap together a crude sandwich and dash out the door. As hinted within the story above, people have an innate tendency to take some of their abilities for granted. On average, humans begin walking at approximately one year of age. Walking on two legs also consumes far less energy than walking on all fours (or even knuckle dragging for that matter). More than a handful of people here have suffered from a broken wrist or finger, and most will agree that these types of injuries are extremely debilitating (especially if you’ve incapacitated your dominant hand). “So what? Have you ever stopped to gape at the jaw dropping majesty of some of humanity’s products of ingenuity? Other than its vital application to engineering and rocket science, we also make use of it in a more mundane, everyday fashion. What do chicken, pork, and nettles have in common?
