There are two ways: one of life, the other of death,
and there is a great difference between the two ways.

The Original Didache: The Teaching

From the Nazarean Council assembled at Jerusalem in approximately, 50 A.D., Headed by Ya’aqob the Brother of the Master Yahshua ha’Mashiakh, along with the Apostles, Prophets, Teachers, and Elders, to the Gerim/Proselyte Gentiles visited by the kindness of Elohiym.

Adapted by Paqid, Yo’el Ben Abraham {braces} & {brackets] mine, with Hebrew/Aramaic names substituted for English; Adapted from its Restoration and Arrangement given by Dr. Alan Garrow.1)www.alangarrow.com He makes the case that this was the original Apostolic Decrees given at the Jerusalem Council. It should be understood as the fuller version of the Edict of the Jerusalem Council in Acts 15. I think that it is indeed closer to the Original Contents given to the new proselytes and their Assemblies. And, in turn, this is part of the source material (Q) for Luke and Matthew, along with the Aramaic rooted sayings in the Gospel of Thomas, as sifted out by Dr. Lewis Keizer. However, it lacks the contextual teaching of the Original Nazarite Gospel and that contained in The Clementine Homilies & Recognitions, concerning abstaining from eating flesh. See the context in Didache 6.2, below, concerning food.

After the events involving Kepha in Acts 10 & 11an the Apostolic Successes of of Sha’ul and Bar-Nabas in Acts 13 – 14, the controversy at Antioch created by the ‘pseudo-brethren’ and the writing of the Book of Galatians,2)I have translated this misused and mis-translated Book! then, their ascent to Jerusalem, the Nazarean Council evidently amended the absolute vegetarianism requirement for initiates.3)A Vegan-Vegetarian Diet was an absolute requirement, as taught by Kepha/Peter in the Clementine Homilies. This requirement was softened for initiates in precarious circumstances beyond their control (i.e., slavery or marriage, (1 Cor 7:21), until they were free to keep the whole Torah-Law of Messiah (Gal 6:2; Cor 9:21; Nazarite Gospel). They were permitted to receive an official Water-Baptism and thus be established as Gerim or Proselytes on the Path of Reformation, just as it is in the broader Jewish community. In fact, there was divine intervention and direction with the ‘House of Cornelius’ And thus, the matter was confirmed as already directed by Mashiakh and stated in The Gospel of the Nazareans, in Section 10, Chapter 91:8

8. And one said to Yahshúa, “If there come to us any that eat flesh and drink strong drink, shall we receive them?” And Yahshúa said to him, “Let such abide in the ‘outer court’ till they cleanse themselves from these grosser evils; for till they perceive, and repent of these, they are not fit to receive the higher mysteries.”

Acts 15:22 Then it pleased [Ya’aqob,] the Apostles and Elders with the whole Assembly, to send chosen men of their own company to Antioch with Sha’ul/Pallu, 4)Numbers 26:8; Paulos and [the Levite, Joseph] Bar-Naba;5)Acts 4:36 namely, Yahudah surnamed Bar-Tsaḅa and Silas, chief men among the brethren: 23 And they wrote letters by them after this manner;

[The Cover Page of the Document spoke thusly:]

The Apostles and Elders and Brethren send greeting,
To the Brethren, which are of the Gentiles (Nations) in Antioch and Syria and Cilicia.
24 Since we have heard, that certain ones, which went out from us have troubled you with words, unsettling your souls, saying,

“All of you must be circumcised, and keep the Torah-law
[the Covenant of Sinai with all of its sectarian augmentations]:
to whom we gave no such command –

25 It seemed good to us, being assembled with one accord, to send chosen men unto you with our beloved Bar-Naba and Pallu, 26 Men that have hazarded their lives for the name of our Master, Yahshua ha’Mashiakh. 27 We have sent therefore [the Prophets,] Yahudah and Silas, who shall also tell you the same things by mouth. 28 For it seemed good to the Spirit of Holiness, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things; 29 That all of you 6)in accordance with minimal Kosher standards for those who reside in the outer court, as a first step,

  • Abstain from food offered to idols [Lev. 17:9],
  • And [abstain] from blood [Lev. 17:10],
  • And [abstain] from animals strangled [Treif; Lev. 17:15],
  • And [abstain] from [all forms of] sexual immorality [Lev. 18:1-26],

from which, if all of you keep yourselves, all of you shall do well
[in the broader Jewish Community,
[21 “For Moses is read in the Synagogue every Shabbath]. Farewell, all of you!

There are Two Ways (Paths) to Walk

1.1         There are two ways (paths), one of life, the other of death,
and there is a great difference between the two ways.
1.2a       Now the way of life is this:
1.2b       First, you shall love the Elohiym (the God) who made you;
1.2c       Second, you shall love your neighbour as yourself.
1.2d       And everything that you would not have done to you, do not to another.7)Credited to Hillel, the Grandfather of Gamaliel of Acts 5:34, and, stated in the proactive sense by the Master Yahshúa, in the Books of Luke & Matthew: “You shall do unto others as you desire others to do to you.”
1.3a       The teaching of these words is this:
1.3b       Bless those that curse you and pray for your enemies,
fast for those that persecute you.
1.3c       For what merit is there if you love those that love you?
Do not even Gentiles do the same? But love those who hate you
and you will not have any enemy.
1.4a       Avoid {Bridle} the fleshly and bodily passions.
1.4b       If someone strikes you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also,
and you will be perfect. If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two. If
someone takes your coat, give him your shirt also. If someone takes away from
you what is yours, Do not ask for it back since you cannot.
2.1         The second commandment of the teaching means:
2.2         You shall not kill. You shall not commit adultery. You shall not corrupt children.
You shall not fornicate. You shall not steal. You shall not practice magic. You shall
not use sorcery. You shall not kill a child by abortion or commit infanticide.
You shall not covet what belongs to your neighbour.
2.3         You shall not swear falsely. You shall not bear false witness. You shall not speak evil.
You shall not harbour a grudge.
2.4         You shall not be double-minded, nor double-tongued,
for the double tongue is a snare of death.
2.5         Your word shall not be false or empty but fulfilled by action.
2.6         You shall not be covetous, nor a swindler, nor a hypocrite, nor ill-tempered, nor
proud. You shall not plot evil against your neighbour.
2.7         You shall not hate anyone. But some you shall reprove and for some you shall pray.
And some you shall love more than your own life.
3.1         My child, flee from all evil and from everything like it.
3.2         Do not be angry, for anger leads to killing; nor be jealous nor be contentious nor
be hot-tempered, for all these things breed killing.
3.3         My child, do not be lustful, for lust leads to fornication (sexual immorality);
nor should you use obscene speech or lustful gazes, for all these breed
acts of adultery.
3.4         My child, do not be a soothsayer, for this leads to idolatry; nor an enchanter,
nor an astrologer, nor a magician; do not be willing to even look at such things,
for all these breed idolatry.
3.5         My child, do not be a liar, for lying leads to theft; nor be avaricious, nor be
vainglorious, for all these breed theft.
3.6         My child, do not be a grumbler, for this leads to blasphemy; nor be self-willed,
nor be evil-minded, for all these breed blasphemy.
3.7         but be meek, since the meek shall inherit the earth.
3.8         Be patient and merciful, and guileless, and quiet and good, and always revering
the words you have heard.
3.9         You shall not exalt yourself or admit arrogance into your soul. You soul shall not
associate with the lofty, but you shall walk with those who are
righteous and humble.
3.10       Accept the things that happen to you as good, knowing
that nothing is done without Elohiym.
4.1         My child, be mindful night and day of the one who speaks the word of YHWH to you.
You shall honour him as the Master, for wherever the nature of the Master is
spoken of, there the Master is.
4.2         You shall not cause division; instead, you shall reconcile those who quarrel.
You shall judge righteously. You shall not show partiality in reproving
people for their faults.
4.4         You shall not doubt whether a thing shall be or not.
4.5         Do not be someone holding out your hands to receive but closing them
when it comes to giving.
4.6         If you have earned something through the work of your hands,
you shall give something as a ransom for your sins.
4.7         You shall not hesitate to give, nor grumble when giving,
for you will know the good paymaster of your reward.
4.8         You shall not turn the needy away; but you shall hold everything in common with
your brother, and not say that anything is your own, for if you share in what is
immortal, how much more in mortal things?
4.9         You shall not withhold your hand from your son or your daughter,
but from their youth you shall teach them the fear of YHWH.
4.10       You shall not command in bitterness your servant or your maid who trust in the
same Elohiym, lest they stop revering the Elohiym who is over you both.
For he comes not to call people according to their status, but he comes to those
whom the Spirit has prepared.
4.11       And you servants shall be subject to your masters, as symbols of Elohiym,
with reverence and fear.
4.12       You shall hate all hyprocrisy and all that is not pleasing to YHWH.
4.13       You shall not abandon the commandments of YHWH but shall keep what you
have received without adding or subtracting anything.
4.14       In the assembly you shall confess your faults, and you shall not approach prayer
with an evil conscience. This is the way of life.
5.1a       And the way of death is this: First of all, it is evil and full of accursedness;
5.1b       killing, adultery, lust, fornication, theft, idolatry, magic, sorcery, robbery, false
witness, hypocrisy, doubleness of heart, treachery, pride, malice, stubbornness,
covetousness, obscene speech, jealousy, insolence, arrogance, boastfulness.
5.2a       Those who are persecutors of the good, hating truth, loving falsehood, not knowing
the reward of the righteous, not adhering to the good nor to righteous judgement,
lying awake not for what is good but for what is evil, those who are far from being
meek and patient, loving what is futile, seeking repayment, not showing mercy to
the poor, not labouring for the oppressed, not recognizing him who made them,
murderers of children, corrupters of the creatures of Elohiym, who turn away from
the needy, oppressing the afflicted, defenders of the rich, unjust judges of the
poor and altogether sinful.

6.1    See that no one leads you astray from this teaching, since the one who does so,
teaches apart from Elohiym.
6.2 If you are able to bear the whole yoke of the Master, you will be perfect, but if you
cannot, do what you can.
6.3     Concerning food, bear what you can, but abstain strictly from food offered to idols,
for it is worship of dead gods.8)Nazarean Vegetarianism, Part One & Part Two

6.2    If you are able to bear the whole yoke of the Master, you will be perfect, but if you cannot, do what you can.
6.3     Concerning food, bear what you can, but abstain strictly from food offered to idols, for it is worship of dead gods. {Notice in the next column: Vegetarianism is the ideal diet as part of “the whole yoke of the Master”. Israel was permitted only clean animals properly killed and bled out; But this was not the ideal diet.} Note the abbreviated version given in Acts 15:29. See also, Rev 2:20; 3:20;
1 Cor 10:20.
In the Clementine Homilies, Kepha (Peter) states that a Law was made by Elohiym and was given to the disembodied spirits (demons) of the giants following the flood, which said to them: You will have no access or dominion over humans
“Unless anyone, of his own accord, subjects himself to you,
{1} worshiping you, and sacrificing, and pouring libations, and partaking of your table, {2} or accomplishing anything else that they ought not do, {3} or shedding blood, {human or animals} {4} or tasting dead flesh, {5} or filling themselves with that which is torn of beasts, or that which is cut (butchered), or that which is strangled [in traps], {6} or anything else that is unclean. [As in touching menstrual blood; men and women should not be having sexual relations during her menstruations—and she should baptize after them, and wash after sexual relations.] Brackets & Italics mine filling in what the other sections clarify.
[Colossians 2:16 Therefore, let no one [a gentile nor one from the Judaean Temple Establishment; see 2:4, 8] judge you—only the body of ha’Mashiaḥ [is to judge you], about eating and about drinking, or with respect to a festival or a ḥodesh [a new month] or shabbaths – 17 [the observance of] which are a shadow of impending matters.]

7.1a       Concerning Water-Baptism, baptize thusly:
7.1c       Baptize in the name of {of the Master Yahshúa} (cf. 9.5)
7.1e       in running water.
7.4a       Before the baptism, let the one baptizing and the one being baptized,
and any others who are able, fast.

9.1         Concerning the Eucharist, give thanks thus:
9.2         First, concerning the cup:
We give thanks to you, our Father, for the holy vine of David your servant,
which you have revealed to us through Yahshúa your servant.
To You be glory for ever.

9.3         And concerning the fragment:
We give thanks to you, our Father, for the life and knowledge, which you
have revealed to us through Yahshúa your servant.
To You be glory for ever.
9.4          As this fragment lay scattered upon the mountains and has been gathered
to become one, so gather your Assembly from the ends of the earth into your
kingdom. For the glory and power are Yours,
through Yahshúa ha Mashiakh, forever.
9.5         Let no one eat or drink of your Eucharist but those baptized in the name of Yahshúa.

11.3a     Concerning apostles:
11.4       Let every apostle [emissary] who comes to you be received as the Master.
11.5       He shall stay only one day, or, if need be, another day too.
If he stays three days [uninvited?], he is a false prophet.
11.6a     When the apostle leaves, let him receive nothing except enough bread [sustenance]
to see him through until he finds lodging.
11.6b     If he asks for money, he is a false {prophet}. [He is not to make prophetic demands for
money. It is the congregations’ responsibility to initiate charity.]
16.1       Watch over your life. Let your lamps not go out and let your loins not be ungirded but
be ready, for you do not know the hour at which our Master is coming.
16.2       You shall assemble frequently, seeking what your souls need
for the whole time of your faith will be of no profit to you unless
you are perfected at the final hour.

Remember that this was written during THAT “last days” generation, in about 48 A.D., prior to 70 A.D., when the Temple was destroyed, which was the verifying sign to all nations that the words and works of Yahshúa being proclaimed by the Apostolic Assembly were true, and that he was at the right hand [in the bosom] of the YHWH the Father in Shamayim and coming in the clouds of heaven in the glory of the Father!

Paqid, yo’el ben abraham

16.3       In the last days shall be multiplied false prophets9)i.e., Simon Magus and Elymas in Acts 8:9; 13:6; Rev. 2:20 and corruption
and shall turn the sheep into wolves and love shall turn into hate.
16.4a     For with the increase of lawlessness they shall hate one another
and shall persecute and betray.
16.4b     And then shall appear the world-deceiver as a son of God, [Simon Magus]10)See the Clementine Homilies & Recognitions, Acts 8:9-24, Revelation 13:11, read in accord with Preterist Eschatology. and he shall do signs and wonders and the earth shall be betrayed
into his hands and he shall do godless things that have not been
done since the beginning of the age.
16.5       Then11)[as his deceptions develop over the generations and culminate in various manifestations, such as, in the Emperor Constantine & various Inquisitions] human
creation shall pass into the fire of testing and many shall be caused
to stumble and be lost but those who persevere in their faith shall be
saved by the curse itself.
16.5       And then shall appear the signs of truth: first the sign of extension in
heaven, next the sign of the trumpet call, and third, the resurrection
of the dead.12)These matters in these last three verses were observed in 70 AD through prophetic visionary experiences. See 2 Kings 6:17
16.8       Then the world shall see the Master coming upon the clouds of heaven,
and all his holy ones with him, on his royal throne, to judge the
world-deceiver and to reward each according to his deeds.
16.9       Then shall go away the evil into eternal punishment [annihilation?] but the righteous shall
enter life eternal, inheriting those things which eye has not seen,
and ear has not heard, and which has not arisen in the heart of man,
those which Elohiym has prepared for those who love him.
