Recently the Letter to the Hebrews has come under attack in some quarters of the Hebraic Roots movement. Among those better known Messianic leaders to question the validity of the Letter to the Hebrews is Monte Judah. The following is a response to some of the things Monte Judah has said about this very important book of the Scriptures.
THE HEBREW ORIGIN OF HEBREWS
Monte Judah starts with a completely false premise… Continue
When the Hebraic Roots Version was published eight years ago. It was the first Sacred Name, Messianic edition of the Scriptures to translate the “New Testament” from the original Hebrew and Aramaic manuscripts rather than the Greek. It was also the first English “New Testament” to place the NT books back in the original manuscript order.
Some passages do not make sense in Greek but only make sense when we translate these passages from the original Hebrew and Aramaic. Past… Continue
In this blog, I showed that in the Scriptures and History (Dead Sea Scrolls) the term “The Way” was a term referring first to Essene Judaism and later to Nazarene Judaism and that the term was originally used in the Tanak to refer… Continue
Nazarenes: True Followers of “The Way”
By James Trimm
NAZARENE JUDAISM WAS “THE WAY”
Acts 24:5 reads:
"For we have found this man to be one who is corrupt and stirs up
sedition among all the Jews in all Ha-Eretz (The Land). For he is a
leader of the teaching of the Nazarenes."
(Acts 24:5 ? HRV from the Aramaic Peshitta)
The Greek has "sect" in pace of "teaching".
Then in Acts 24:14 Paul responds to this accusation… Continue

Why should you care what the original language of the “New Testament” was?
Because Messianic Jewish Scholars have admitted that Messianic Judaism's highest authority must be the Bible and that it must be objectively understood in context of the original language in which it was revealed. Messianic Leader Daniel Juster writes:
The Hebraic Roots Version (http://www.lulu.com/nazarene) (now in print for eight years! Revised E-version now avaiable) (which began as the Semitic New Testament Project) was the result of a ten year project to produce a new and accurate translation of the New Testament taken primarily from old Hebrew and Aramaic sources. Unlike most translations this edition is not rooted in a Greek Hellenistic text. Instead this translation will seek… Continue
Here is the complete text of "Panarion 29" by Epiphanius as it appears
in the translation published by Brill.
l Number nine, but twenty-nine of the series
1,1 After these come Nazoraeans, who originated at the same time
or even before, or in conjunction with them or after them. In any case
they were their contemporaries. I cannot say more precisely who suc-
ceeded whom. For, as I said, these were contemporary with each… Continue
In examining the text of Isaiah 60:22 the ancient Rabbis noticed what they called a "contradiction" in the phrase "I, YHWH, will hasten it in its time." The Talmud discusses this verse as follows:
R. Alexandri said: R. Joshua b. Levi pointed out a contradiction. It is written, "In its time [will the Messianic Kingdom come], whilst it is also written, "I [the L-RD] will hasten it!"-- If they are worthy, I will hasten it; if not, [it will… Continue
Just a remindere from the rules page http://nazarenespace.ning.com/notes/Rule_for_Nazarene_Space
1a. Nazarene Space, while open to non-nazarenes, is focused upon the
historic Nazarene faith. This is not a platform for preaching or presenting
anti/non/pseudo Nazarene ideas. Occasionally, if a non-Nazarene (like
an Ebionite, “Nazarine”, ) pops up on the Network, I'll 'lift the rules'… Continue
MYTH: The tithe was for the age of Law but we are in the age of grace.
TRUTH: The Torah is for all generations forever.
MYTH: The tithe was instituted as part of the Mosaic Torah.
TRUTH: The first mention of the Torah after the Torah is given on Mt. Sinai is found in Lev. 27:30 which does not institute a tithe, but simply acknowledges that the tithe belongs to YHWH. This passage simply mentions the tithe that already… Continue

Folks this ministry needs your financial support. We are out there doing the work of YHWH and having a disproportionate affect on the world. This month we are having a shortfall, this is no time for us to be moving backwards. We have bills we must pay coming up this week.
Is this work worthy of your support?
What other ministry provides this kind of teaching?
You can donate by going to the chip-in counter at http://www.nazarenespace.org or… Continue
A major key to Spiritual Warfare is self control. Paul writes:
For the implement of our service is not of the flesh, but of the
power of Eloah, and by it we subdue rebellious strongholds.
And we pull down reasoning's and all pride that exalts [itself]
against the knowledge of Eloah, and we lead captive all
thoughts to the obedience of the Messiah.
This concept is the theme of the book of 4th Maccabees. Unfortunately those English… Continue

In these last days YHWH is restoring the ancient Nazarene sect of Judaism. For truth seekers worldwide, the long night of apostasy is ending. I very much believe that YHWH has the right people, in the right place, at the right time, to accomplish this task.
The task itself is monumental. We are ever mindful of the fact that you who are truth seekers and have followed the light of Torah and Messiah this far, are our partners in this work.
