YAH'S WATCHMAN Platonic Solids (PRIME) The so-called Platonic Solids are regular polyhedra. “Polyhedra” is a Greek word meaning “many faces.” There are five of these, and they are characterized by the fact that each face is a regular polygon, that is, a straight-sided figure with equal sides and equal angles: It is natural to wonder why there should be exactly five Platonic solids, and whether there might conceivably be one that simply hasn't been discovered yet. First, consider that at each vertex (point) at least three faces must come together, for if only two came together they would collapse against one another and we would not get a solid. Now, each interior angle of an equilateral triangle is 60°, hence we could fit together three, four, or five of them at a vertex, and these correspond to to the tetrahedron, the octahedron, and the icosahedron. And that makes five regular polyhedra. Kepler’s Platonic Solids Model of the Cosmos Contributors , author Citation Info [MLA] Smith, B. Related: Kepler’s Laws Minitext:

Ancient Near Eastern Texts Relating to the Old Testament Ancient Near Eastern Texts Relating to the Old Testament edited by James B. Pritchard (1st ed. 1950, 2nd ed.1955, 3rd ed. 1969[1]) is an anthology of important historical, legal, mythological, liturgical, and secular texts from the ancient Near East. William W. Hallo, writing in the Journal of the American Oriental Society in 1970, described it as "a modern classic ever since its first appearance in 1950", because "for the first time it assembled some of the most significant Ancient Near Eastern texts in authoritative, generously annotated English translations based on the accumulated insight of several generations of scholarship scattered".[2] It is conventional to cite the work as ANET.[3] ANEP refers to a companion volume Ancient Near Eastern Pictures Relating to the Old Testament (1969), featuring 882 black and white designs and photos.[4] Publication[edit] The book was published by Princeton University Press, Princeton, New Jersey, in 1950.

Bible's Buried Secrets The Bible's Buried Secrets PBS Airdate: November 18, 2008 NARRATOR: God is dead, or so it must have seemed to the ancestors of the Jews in 586 B.C. Jerusalem and the temple to their god are in flames; the nation of Israel, founded by King David, is wiped out. WILLIAM G. NARRATOR: For out of the crucible of destruction emerges a sacred book, the Bible, and an idea that will change the world, the belief in one God. THOMAS CAHILL (Author, The Gifts of the Jews): This is a new idea. LEE I. NARRATOR: Now, a provocative new story from discoveries deep within the Earth and the Bible. EILAT MAZAR (Shalem Center): We wanted to examine the possibility that the remains of King David's palace are here. WILLIAM DEVER: We can actually see vivid evidence here of a destruction. AMNON BEN-TOR (The Hebrew University of Jerusalem): Question number one: "Who did it?" NARRATOR: An archaeological detective story puzzles together clues to the mystery of who wrote the Bible, when and why. RON E. P.

PodOmatic | Podcast - Passion for Truth Ministries 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. " 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)

Hebrew Alphabet The Hebrew and Yiddish languages use a different alphabet than English. The picture below illustrates the Hebrew alphabet, in Hebrew alphabetical order. Note that Hebrew is written from right to left, rather than left to right as in English, so Alef is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet and Tav is the last. Letters of the Alefbet Table 1: The Hebrew Alphabet If this sounds like Greek to you, you're not far off! The "Kh" and the "Ch" are pronounced as in German or Scottish, a throat clearing noise, not as the "ch" in "chair." Note that there are two versions of some letters. Vowels and Points Like most early Semitic alphabetic writing systems, the alefbet has no vowels. However, as Hebrew literacy declined, particularly after the Romans expelled the Jews from Israel, the rabbis recognized the need for aids to pronunciation, so they developed a system of dots and dashes called nikkud (points). Table 2: Vowel Points Most nikkud are used to indicate vowels. Vowel points are shown in blue.
