Online Parallel Bible: Weaving God's Word into the Web A Masonic Dictionary…to help Masons and Non-Masons A Masonic Dictionary…to help Masons and Non-Masons The Latin accipere, receive, was from ad, meaning "to," and capere, meaning "take," therefore to take, to receive. The passive apprenticeship and initiation, but after the participle of this was acceptus. In Operative Masonry members were admitted through course of time, and when the Craft had begun to decay, gentlemen who had no intention of doing builders' work but were interested in the Craft for social, or perhaps for antiquarian reasons, were accepted" into membership; to distinguish these gentlemen Masons from the Operatives in the membership they were called the "Accepted." After 1717, when the whole Craft was revolutionized into a Fraternity, all members became non-Operatives, hence our use of the word in such phrases as "Free and Accepted Masons." Filius is Latin for son, filia for daughter; the prefix "af" is a form of the Latin ad, meaning to add to. The Latin for weapons, or arms, was arma. (Also spelled "dimit.")

Aboriginal Hebrews Black Hebrews? The very words cause many people to grin at what appears to be simply a play on words. No one reads about such people in european authored history books and there are only a few references to "Ethiopian Jews" in white Jewish sources. Their story begins with the Patriarch Abraham (2117-1942 B.C.), a native of the Sumerian city of Ur in ancient Mesopotamia. It has been confirmed that the ancient Sumerians were akin to the modern Black Dravidians of India. This truth is grossly neglected, suppressed, and distorted in most European and American historical texts which are flavored with race prejudice. Biblical history relates that the descendants of Abraham, namely Jacob (Israel) and his twelve sons and their wives, 70 in all, migrated from Canaan to Egypt around the year 1827 B.C. This astounding number of people in so short a time can only be adequately explained by intermarriage between the family of Jacob and the native Egyptian populace. Dr.

YHWHNAME.html Dt. 5:6: "I am Yahuah your Alahim . . . " (ANOKY YAHUAH ALAHENU) The four letters YOD-HAY-UAU-HAY are the vowels. Yusef ben MattithYahu (aka "Flavius Josephus") claims to have seen the headpiece worn by the Kohen ha'Gadol, and that the Name was written in four Hebrew vowels. If one can say "Yahudah", YOD-HAY-UAU-DALETH-HAY, simply remove the "D" sound, and go with it. The Masoretes (masorah means "tradition") worked for 500 years (600's through 1100's) to "bend" or "fix" the pronunciation of the language, inventing "niqqud" vowels to misdirect the utterance of words, primarily to distort the correct utterance of the Name, YAHUAH (ya-HOO-ah). Above: Scroll showing ancient form of the letters used in the Name Above: Coin minted during the captivity under the Persian empire with letters Yod-Hay-Uau The Assyrians, in cuneiform, referred to the Name of the Hebrew Alahim as IAUA Whatever has been hidden will be revealed.

The Lost Books of the Bible Contents Start Reading Page Index Text [Zipped] This is a collection of New Testament Apocrypha, including many works which were admired and read by the early Christians, but which were later excluded from the canonical Bible. It includes accounts of the young Jesus, particularly the Gospel of Mary and the Protevangelion, which provides additional folklore about the birth and youthful adventures of Jesus. Of note are the letters of Paul and Seneca, and the letters of Herod and Pilate, which are most likely a forgery, but add more depth to the question of the historicity of Jesus. There are also a number of non-canonical epistles, such as Laodiceans. Also worth a close read are the three books of the Shepherd of Hermas, which uses apocalyptic and symbolic imagery. Although not attributed, the initials of the editor, Rutherford H.
