is to be found in Beroea near Coelesyria, in the Decapolis near Pella, and in Bashanitis at
the place called . . . Khokhabe in Hebrew . . .
[In his disgust, he says,] They are nothing
but Jews
[except for their fidelity to Yahshúa haMashiakh. . .]
[Likewise, the Ancient Essene Sect of the] “Nasaræans . . . are Jews by nationality, from Gileaditis,
Bashanitis and the Transjordan as I have been told, but descendants of Israel himself.”
There are only a handful of Nasaræans
[left as such, for] . . . they have been
united with the sect of the Ebionites
[which is another name for the Nazaræans, who also possess the Original Gospel written in Hebrew. They reject animal sacrifices and flesh eating as part of a fraudulent editing of the Scriptures, and thus read them with discernment].

IN THE NAME OF THE ALL HOLY. AMEIN.

Here begins the Gospel of the Perfect Life of the Master, Yahshúa the Anointed,1)My own notes will be in footnote form. The word Lection has been changed to Chapter. Names have been edited closer to Hebrew/Aramaic pronunciation: Moshéh for Moses, Yahshúa for Jesus/Iesus, etc. My interpretations & clarifications will be [bracketed] in the text.
the offspring of Dawíd through Yoséph and Miriám after the flesh,
and the son of Elohím, through godly love and wisdom, after the Spirit.2)The original uses Iesu-Maria / Jesu-Maria. It should actually be, Yahshu-Maryá. Yahshúa is pronounced Yâhwshúa: Yahw as in yawn spoken quickly and accented on shú, as noted with the accent mark. Yahshu-Maryá means, Yahshúa The Master. Marya, in Aramaic, is the emphatic form of Mar = THE Master, as in, The Lord of Lords. This is from Psalm 110:1, “YHWH said unto my Lord…” Thus we have the NT words, “The Lord Yahshúa The Mashíakh/The Christ/The Anointed”.

PROLOGUE    

From the Ages of Ages is the Eternal Thought, and the Thought is the Word, and the Word is the Act, and these Three are one in the Eternal Law, and the Law is with God and the Law proceeds from God. All things are created by Law and without it is not anything created that exists. In the Word is Life and Substance, the Fire and the Light. The Love and the Wisdom are One for the Liberation of all. And the Light shines in darkness and the darkness conceals it not. The Word is the one Life-giving Fire, which shining into the world becomes the fire and light of every soul that enters into the world. I am in the world, and the world is in Me, and the world knows it not. I come to my own House, and my friends receive Me not. But as many as receive and obey, to them is given the power to become the Sons and Daughters of God, even to them who believe in the Holy Name, who are born, not of the will of the blood and flesh, but of God. And the Word is incarnate and dwells among us, whose Glory we beheld, full of Grace. Behold the Goodness and the Truth and the Beauty of God!3)One will recognize that The Author of the Gospel of John Chapter One condenses and expands upon this Prologue.


Chapter 1 

Section 1 of 10, Chapters 1 thru 10

The Days of King Herod; The Parentage and Conception of Yoḥanán the Baptist; His Nazarite/Nazirite Consecration: No Animal Flesh or Strong Drink.

1. THERE was in the days of Herod, the King of Judæa,4)Goldenberg, Robert; The Origins of Judaism: From Canaan to the Rise of Islam; Cambridge University Press, New York, 2007, p. 121.  “The Roman Senate formally recognized Herod as king of Judaea; if he could only recapture the kingdom from its Parthian occupiers, it was his to rule. It took Herod three years (and the help of a large Roman force) to accomplish this task, but by 37 [BCE] he was master of Judaea. To enhance his legitimacy, he married Mariamme, a Hasmonaean princess, and arranged for her younger brother to become high priest as Aristoboulus III. Herod ruled for over thirty years, until his death in 4 BCE…He went down in history as Herod the Great.” The Herodian Period lasted until about 68 AD. a certain priest named Zakharyáh, of the course of Aḅiyáh; and his wife was of the daughters of Aharon, and her name was Elishéḅa.5)One will recognize that the Original Gospel of Luke takes this material from this Nazarite Gospel.
2. And they were both righteous before YAHWEH6)YHWH / IAUE, Yahweh or Yahu-weh. Hebrew Consonant-Vowels reflected by Greek by early Jewish & Christian Testimony. This version was originally written as IOVA. In early Hebrew and English, the “V” was a “U” or “W” sound. The “A” is “eh” as in Apple, and not Ape., walking in all the commandments and ordinances of Elohím blameless. And they had no child, because Elishéḅa was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years.
3. And it happened, that while he executed the office of Priest before Elohím in the order of his course, according to the custom of the office of the priests, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the Miqdásh of YHWH. And the whole multitude of the people were praying without at the time of the offering of incense.
4. And an angel of YHWH appeared to him standing over the Altar of Incense. And when Zakharyáh saw, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him. But the angel said to him, “Fear not, Zakharyáh, for your prayer is heard; and your wife Elishéḅa, shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Yoḥanan.
5. And you shall have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth;

for he shall be great in the sight of YHWH, and shall neither eat flesh foods, nor drink strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Ruach ha’Qodésh,
even from his mother’s womb.

A nazir / nazar – Separated to yhwh

6. And many of the children of Yisraél shall he turn to YHWH their Elohím; And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Eliyáhu, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the Tsaddiq; to make ready a people prepared for YHWH.”
7. And Zakharyáh said to the angel, “How shall I know this? For I am an old man, and my wife is well advanced in years.” And the angel answering said to him, “I am Gaḅri’el, who stands in the presence of Elohím; and am sent to speak to you, and to announce to you these glad tidings.
8. And, behold, you are dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, then shall your tongue be loosed that you may believe my words which shall be fulfilled in their season.”
9. And the people waited for Zakharyáh, and marveled that he tarried so long in the Miqdásh. And when he came out, he could not speak to them; and they perceived that he had seen a vision in the Miqdásh; for he made signs to them and remained speechless.
10. And it happened, that, as soon as the days of his ministration were accomplished, he departed to his own house. And after those days, his wife Elishéḅa, conceived, and hid herself five months saying, “Thus has YHWH dealt with me in the days wherein he looked on me, to take away my reproach among men.”    


Chapter 2

The Conception of Yahshúa the Mashíakh; Nazarite Consecration
The Appearances of Gabri’él to Miriám & Yoséph;
Miriám and Elishéḅa Prophesy; Yoséph Prophesies

1. AND in the sixth month, the angel Gaḅri’el was sent from Elohím, to a village of Galilee, named Nazara/Nazareth,7)The root of this may be that of a village of Essene Nazirites. This may have also been identical with Nasarites/Nasareans/Nazareans. to a virgin betrothed-in-marriage to a man whose name was Yoséph, of the house of Dawíd; and the virgins’ name was Miriám 8)Miri-Am: Miry = bitterness, Am = people, = bitterness of the people of Israel. In Hebrew, it is spelled Miriam and in Greek and Aramaic, Mariam and shortened to Mary in English. The name originated with Moshéh’s sister, who was named after the bitterness of the Egyptian bondage. There are several called Miriám connected with Yahshúa in the Gospel within his family and inner circle, as it was a common name. Migdal means tower. Magdala was a Galilean town north of Tiberias. Magdalena was a towering woman. Magdalena may be the name given her by Master Yahshúa (Micah 4:8). Magdalena becomes a symbol of the bride/wife of Yahshúa, which is his Qahal or Qahillah in the heavens and earth (Ekklesia/Community/Assembly/ Congregation/Church)..
2. Now Yoséph was a just and rational mind, and he was skilled in all manner of work in wood and in stone. And Miriám was a tender and discerning soul, and she made veils for the Miqdásh. And they were both pure before Elohím; and of them both was Yahshu-Maryá [the Master Yahshúa], who is called the Mashíakh [in Hebrew & Mashíkha in Aramaic].
3. And the angel came in unto her and said, “Shalom, Miriám, you who are highly favoured, for the Mother[hood] of Elohím is with you: Blessed are you among women and blessed be the fruit of your womb.”
4. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of greeting this should be. And the angel said to her, “Fear not, Miriám, for you have found favour with Elohím and, behold, you shall conceive in your womb and bring forth a child, and he shall be great and shall be called a Son of the Highest.
5. And YHWH Elohím shall give to him the throne of his father David: and he shall reign over the house of Ya’aqoḅ forever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.”
6. Then Miriám said to the angel, “How will this be seeing I know not a man?” And the angel answered and said to her “The Ruách ha’Qodésh shall come upon Yoséph your Spouse, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow you, O Miriám, therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of you shall be called the Mashíakh, the Child of Elohím, and his name on earth shall be called Yahshu-Maryá [the Master Yahshúa], for he shall save-liberate the people from their sins, whosoever shall repent and obey his Toráh-Law.

7. Therefore ye shall eat no flesh, nor drink strong drink, for the child shall be consecrated to Elohím from its mother’s womb, and neither flesh nor strong drink shall he take, nor shall razor touch his head.9)This suggests a purer Essene-Nazirite practice than is recorded in the Pentateuch. Perhaps, grapes and a “little wine” or a diluted wine was not a part of the original prohibition. Drunkenness was the real issue and so they abstained from “strong drink”. Perhaps the original practices stemmed back before the redaction activity of the Aharonic-Zadokite Priests who created a Tetrateuch in Babylon. Numbers 6:2 and Judges 13:7, before its merger with Deuteronomy to create a Pentateuch. In Chapter 1:5, Yoḥanan, and in 2:7, Yahshúa, were consecrated as Nazirites, and it is testified in other early sources that Ya’aqoḅ (James) was also a lifelong Nazirite.

8. And, behold, your cousin Elishéḅa, she has also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. For with Elohím no thing shall be impossible.” And Miriám said, “Behold the handmaid of YHWH; Be it to me according to your word. And the angel departed from her.
9. And in the same day, the angel Gabri’él appeared to Yoséph in a dream and said to him, “Greetings, Yoséph, you who are highly favoured, for the Fatherhood of Elohím is with you. Blessed are you among men and blessed be the fruit of your loins.”
10. And as Yoséph thought upon these words he was troubled, and the angel of YHWH said to him, “Fear not, Yoséph, you Son of Dawíd, for you have found favour with Elohím, and behold you shall beget a child, and you shall call his name Yahshu-Maryá [Yahshua The Master], for he shall save-liberate his people from their sins.”
11. Now all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was written in the prophets saying,
“Behold a maiden shall conceive and be with child and shall bring forth a son, and shall call his name Emmanu’él, which being interpreted is, Elohím is with us.”
12. Then Yoséph being raised from sleep did as the angel had bidden him, and went in to Miriám, his betrothed wife, and she conceived in her womb the Holy One.

Miriám and Elishéḅa Prophesy

13. AND Miriám arose in those days and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Judæa and entered into the house of Zakharyáh and greeted Elishéḅa.
14. And it happened, that, when Elishéḅa heard the salutation of Miriám, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elishéḅa was filled with the power of the Ruáḥ [Ruḥa in Aramaic] and spoke, with a clear voice and said, “Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb.
15. Whence is this to me that the mother of my Master should come to me? For, behold, as soon as the voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leaped for joy. And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Holy One.”
16. And Miriám said: “My soul does magnify You, the Eternal, and my spirit does rejoice in Elohím my Saviour. For you have regarded the low estate of your handmaiden; for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
17. For You that are mighty have done to me great things; and holy is Your name. And Your mercy is on those that fear You from generation to generation.
18. You have showed strength with Your arm; You have scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
19. You have put down the mighty from their seats and exalted the humble and the meek. You have filled the hungry with good things and the rich You do send away empty.
20. You do help Your servant Yisraél, in remembrance of Your mercy: as You spoke to our ancestors, to Abraham and to his seed forever. And Miriám abode with her about three months and returned to her own house.”

Yoséph Prophesies

21. And these are the words that Yoséph spoke, saying: “Blessed is the ELOÁH of our fathers and our mothers in Yisraél: for in an acceptable time, You have heard me, and in the day of salvation, You have helped me.
22. For You said, “I will preserve and make you a covenant of the people to renew the face of the earth: and to cause the desolate places to be redeemed from the hands of the spoiler.
23. That you may say to the captives, ‘Go ye forth and be free’; and to them that are in darkness, ‘Show yourselves in the light.’

And they shall feed in the ways of pleasantness;
and they shall no more hunt nor worry the creatures
which I have made to rejoice before me.

24. They shall not hunger nor thirst anymore neither shall the heat smite them, nor the cold destroy them. And I will make on all My mountains a way for travelers; and My high places shall be exalted.
25. Sing ye heavens and rejoice you earth; O ye deserts break forth with song: for You, O Elohím, do comfort Your people; and console those that have suffered wrong.


Chapter 3

The Nativity and Naming of Yoḥanán the Baptist;
Zachariah (Zakharyah) His Father Prophesies

1. NOW Elishéḅa’s full time came that she should be delivered; and she brought forth a son. And her neighbors and her cousins heard how YHWH had showed great mercy on her; and they rejoiced with her.
2. And it happened, that on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child; and they called him Zakharyáh, after the name of his father. And his mother answered and said, “Not so; but he shall be called Yoḥanan.” And they said to her, “There is none of your kindred, who is called by your name.”
3. And they made signs to his father, how he would have him called. And he asked for a writing table, and wrote, saying, “His name is Yoḥanan.” And they all marveled, for his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, and he spoke, and praised Elohím.
4. And great awe came on all that dwelt round about them; and all these came on all that dwelt round about them; and all these sayings were made known abroad throughout all the hilly country of Judæa. And all they that heard them laid them up in their hearts, saying, “What manner of child shall this be!” And the hand of YHWH was with him.
5. And his father Zakharyáh was filled with the Sacred-Breath, and prophesied, saying,
“Blessed are You, O Elohím of YisraĔl; for You have visited and redeemed Your people. And have raised up a horn of salvation-liberation for us in the house of your servant Dawíd. As You spoke by the mouth of Your holy prophets, which have been since the world began.
6. That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us. To perform the mercy promised to our ancestors, and to remember Your holy covenant.
7. The oath which You sware to our father Aḅraham, that You would grant to us, that we, being delivered out of the hand of our enemies, might serve You without fear, in holiness and righteousness before You all the days of our life.
8. And this child shall be called the Prophet of the Highest: for he shall go before Your face, O Elohím, to prepare Your ways; to give knowledge of salvation to Your people by the remission of their sins.
9. Through the tender mercy of our Elohím, whereby the dayspring from on high has visited us; to give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.”
10. And the child grew, and grew strong in spirit, and his mission was hidden till the day of his showing forth to Yisraél.


Chapter 4

Nativity of Yahshúa the Mashíakh, in a Cave, in the midst of the Animals; An Angel tells the Shepherds; His Presentation in the Temple (the Miqdash); The Song of Simeon (Shimon)

1. NOW the birth of the Master Yahshúa Mashíkha was in this way. It happened in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. And all the people of Syria went to be taxed, everyone into his own city, and it was amid winter.10)Midwinter (in the midst of winter) accords with Eastern Orthodox celebration of January 6th for the birth of Yahshúa instead of December 25th of the Romans. However, this may simply indicate when Syria’s taxation began. And then, sometime later in the year, the taxation began in the Galilee and Judæa, after which, Yoseph with Miriam headed to Beth-Leḥem. If we mark Yahshua’s conception on the Winter Solstice on Dec. 21, this yields a 9-Month period until his birth on Sukkot 1, beginning the 7-Day Festival of Tabernacles, and his Circumcision on the Additional 8th Day, which was added by Ya’aqoḅ (Jubilees 32:27, aka, Shemini Atzeret, & Simchat Torah). And, this 365th Day added to the 364 Days of the Qumran DSS Calendar. The Mayans celebrate this 365th Day as “the day out of time” in the summer, and other cultures celebrated it on other days.
2. Then, [later that year,] Yoséph with Miriám also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazara into Judæa, to the city of Dawíd, which is called Bethleḥem (because they were of the house and lineage of Dawíd), to be taxed with Miriám his wife, who was great with child.
3. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn child in a Cave, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger, which was in the cave because there was no room for them in the inn. And behold it was filled with many lights, on either side twelve, bright as the Sun in his glory.
4. And there were in the same cave an ox, and a horse, and an ass, and a sheep, and beneath the manger was a cat with her little ones, and there were doves also, overhead, and each had its mate after its kind, the male with the female.

5. Thus it happened that he was born in the midst of the animals which, through the redemption of man from ignorance and selfishness, he came to redeem from their sufferings, by the manifestation of the sons and the daughters of Elohím.

See Romans 8:21

6. And there were in the same country, Shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And when they came, behold, the angel of Elohím came upon them, and the glory of the Highest shone round about them; and they were very afraid.
7. And the angel said to them, “Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people, for to you is born this day in the city of Dawíd a savior, which is Mashíakh, the Holy One of Elohím. And this shall be a sign to you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes lying in a manger.”
8. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising Elohím and saying, “Glory to Elohím in the highest, and on earth peace toward men of goodwill.”
9.  And it came about, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the Shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go even unto Bethleḥem, and see this thing, which is come to pass, which our Elohím has made known to us.
10. And they came with haste, and found Miriám and Yoséph in the cave, and the Babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen these things, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning the child.
11. And all they that heard it, wondered at those things told them by the Shepherds; but Miriám kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. And the Shepherds returned, glorifying and praising Elohím for all the things that they had heard and seen.
12. AND when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called Yahshu-Maryá [Yahshúa the Master], as was spoken by the angel before he was conceived in the womb. And when the days of her purification according to the Toráh of Moshéh were accomplished, they brought the child to Yerushalem, to present it to Elohím (as it is written in the Toráh of Moshéh, every male that opens the womb shall be called ‘Qodésh le’YHWH’).
13. And, behold, there was a man in Yerushalem, whose name was Simeon/Shimón; and the same man was a Tsaddiq and Ḥassid, waiting for the consolation of Yisraél; and the Sacred-Breath was upon him. And it was revealed to him that he should not see death before he had seen the Mashíakh of Elohím.
14. And he came by the Ruach into the Miqdásh; and when the parents brought in the child Yahshúa, to do for him after the custom of the Toráh, he perceived the child as it were a Pillar of light. Then he took him “up in his arms, and blessed Elohím, and said:
15. “Now let Your servant depart in peace, according to Your word. For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared before the face of all people; to be a light to lighten the Nations, and to be the glory of your people Yisraél.” And his parents marveled at those things which were spoken of him.
16. And Simeon/Shimón blessed them, and said to Miriám his mother, “Behold, this child is set for the falling and rising again of many in Yisraél; and for a sign which shall be spoken against (yea, a sword shall pierce through your own soul also), that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.
17. And there was one Ḥannah, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanu’él of the tribe of Asher, of a great age, who departed not from the Miqdásh, but served Elohím with fastings and prayers night and day.
18. And she, coming in that instant, gave thanks likewise to Elohím, and spoke of him to all those that looked for redemption in Yerushalem. And when they had performed all things according to the Toráh, they returned into Galilee, to their own city Nazara/Nazareth.


Chapter 5

The Manifestation of Yahshúa to the Magi (Wise Men), who had Tasted Neither Flesh nor Strong Drink; Disappearance of the Star when they forgot their weary animals; Flight into Egypt; Zacharias (Zakharyah) is Murdered; Return to the Land of Yisra’el.

1. Now when Yahshúa was born [≈13BC] in Bethleḥem of Judæa, in the days of Herod the King, behold, there came certain Magi men from the East to Yerushalem [≈11BC],

who had purified themselves and tasted not of flesh nor of strong drink that they might find the Mashíakh whom they sought.

And they said, “Where is he that is born King of the Yahudím? For we in the East have seen his star and are come to worship him.”
2. When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Yerushalem with him. And when he had gathered all the Chief Priests and Scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where the Mashíakh should be born.
3. And they said to him, “Bethleḥem of Judæa; for thus it is written by the prophet, ‘And you Bethleḥem, in the land of Judæa, are not the least among the princes of Judah; for out of you shall come forth a Governor, that shall rule my people Yisraél.’”
4. Then Herod, when he had privately called the Magi, enquired of them diligently what time the Star appeared. And he sent them to Bethleḥem, and said, “Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.”
5. When they had heard the king, they departed; and, behold, the Star which the Magi of the East saw, and the Angel of the Star went before them, till it came and stood over the place where the young child was, and the Star had the appearance of six rays.
6. And as they went on their way with their camels and asses laden with gifts, and were intent on the heavens seeking the child by the Star, they forgot for a little, their weary animals who had borne the burden and heat of the day, and were thirsty and fainting, and the Star was hidden from their sight.
7. In vain they stood and gazed and looked one upon the other in their trouble. Then they thought of their camels and asses and hastened to undo their burdens that they might have rest.
8. Now there was near Bethleḥem a well by the way, and as they stooped down to draw water for their animals, lo, the Star which they had lost appeared to them, being reflected in the stillness of the water.
9. And when they saw it, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
10. And they praised Elohím who had shown his mercy to them even as they shewed mercy to their thirsty animals.
11. And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Miriám his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented to him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.
12. And being warned of Elohím in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way. And they kindled a fire according to their custom and worshipped Elohím in the flame.
13. And when they were departed, behold, the Angel of Elohím appeared to Yoséph in a dream, saying, “Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and there remain until I bring you word, for Herod will seek to destroy him.”
14. AND when he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt [11 BC], and was there for about seven years until the death of Herod [4BC], that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of Elohím by the prophet, saying, “Out of Egypt have I called my son.”
15. Elishéḅa too, when she heard it, took her infant son and went up into a mountain and hid him. And Herod sent his officers to Zakharyáh in the Miqdásh and said to him, “Where is your child? And he answered, “I am a minister of Elohím and am continually in the Miqdásh. I know not where he is.”
16. And he sent again, saying, “Tell me truly, where is your son? Do you not know your life is in my hand?” And Zakharyáh answered, “YHWH is witness, if you shed my blood, my spirit will Elohím receive, for you shed the blood of the innocent.”
17. And they slew Zakharyáh in the Miqdásh between the holy place and the altar; and the people knew it, for a voice was heard, “Zakharyáh is slain, and his blood shall not be washed out until the avenger comes.” And after a time, the Priests cast lots, and the lot fell upon Simeon/Shimón, and he filled his place.
18. Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceedingly angry, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethleḥem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men.
19. Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Yirmeyáhu the Prophet, saying, “In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.”
20. BUT when Herod was dead, behold, an Angel of Elohím appeared in a dream to Yoséph in Egypt. Saying, “Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and return into the land of Israel: for they are dead which sought the young child’s life.”
21. And he arose and took the young child and his mother and came into the land of Yisraél. And they came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth; and he was called, the Nazirene [the Nazirite].


Chapter 6

The Childhood and Youth of Yahshú, in the Temple (Miqdash); He Liberates snared birds; Marries; Goes again into Egypt; Advanced Studies; Visits India and other Lands; He Delivered a Lion From the Hunters.

1. NOW, Yoséph and Miriám, his parents, went up to Jerusalem every year at the Feast of the Passover

and they observed the feast after the manner of their [Essene] brethren, who abstained from bloodshed and the eating of flesh and from strong drink.

And when he was twelve years old [≈2 BC], he went to Yerushalem with them after the custom of the feast.
2. And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Yahshúa tarried behind in Yerushalem; and his parents knew not of it. But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a day’s journey and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance. And when they found him not, turned back to Yerushalem, seeking him.
3. And it happened, that after three days they found him in the Miqdásh, sitting amid the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions. And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.
4. And when they saw him, they were amazed; and his mother said to him, “Son, why have you dealt with us thusly? Behold, your father and I have sought you sorrowing.” And he said to them, “How is it that ye sought me? Do you not know that I must be in my Parents’ House?” And they understood not the saying which he spoke to them. But his mother kept all these sayings in her heart.
5. And a certain prophet seeing him, said to him, “Behold the Love and the Wisdom of Elohím are one in you, therefore in the age to come, you shall be called Yahshu-Maryá [Yahshúa The Master], for by the Mashíakh shall Elohím save mankind, which now is truly as the bitterness of the sea, but it shall yet be turned into sweetness, but to this generation the bride shall not be manifest, nor yet to the age to come.”11)Love and Wisdom refers to the male-female polarities perfected within him; so that, in him, this is a dual Messiahship that is also symbolized with his eventual bride, Miriám Magdalena. This duality also symbolizes his people as his bride-wife. Magdalena’s role, hinted at in this Gospel, would be hidden until the third age. Miriám means ‘bitterness of the people’. Note: there are 3-Ages in view: their present age which was ending in that generation (with the destruction of the Temple), the age that was to come (the present age), and then in another “age to come” (that which we presently anticipate), comes the “sweetness” of the people when the fullness of the prophetic promises will be manifested (vss. 15-17). The “age to come” began with the destruction of the Herodian Temple in 70 AD. The creation will be liberated into the hands of the “sons of Elohím” in another “age to come”. See 4:5; 32:9.
6. And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject to them. And he made wheels, and yokes, and tables also, with great skill. And Yahshúa increased in stature, and in favour with Elohím and man.

The Hidden Years of Yahshúa

His Childhood Miracles

7. AND on a certain day12)This grayed portion in vss. 5, 6, 11-21 may have been a revelation of condensed details that Rev. Ousley started but never fully integrated into the narrative so as to give a clear chronology. It creates issues. The authors of “The Gospel of the Nazirenes” (1997) must have felt this way as they altered the order in this chapter. Is this an enigma to unravel? Or, a matter allegory, symbolism, and recapitulations of these time-periods or other time-periods? 1) His first trip to India, 2) He returned and was married for 7-years, 3) Went to Egypt for 7-years and was Ordained as an Essene Rabbi, 4) He returned and taught , 5) He was Baptized by John and begotten of God, 6) He went into the Desert, symbolized by the 40-Days being tempted in the Desert, 7) He returned, a wedding in Cana and a Synagogue sermon in Nazara/Nazareth. We will attempt a possible integration within the text. the child Yahshúa came to a place where a snare was set for birds, and there were some boys there. And Yahshúa said to them,

“Who has set this snare for the innocent creatures of Elohím? Behold! In a snare shall they, in like manner, be caught.”

And he beheld twelve sparrows as if they were dead.
8. And he moved his hands over them, and said to them, “Go, fly away, and while ye live remember me.” And they arose and fled away making a noise. And the Judæans, seeing this, were astonished and told it to the Priests.
9. And other wonders the child did, and flowers were seen to spring up beneath his feet, where there had been nothing but barren ground before. And his companions stood in awe of him.

His Seven Year Marriage

10. And in the eighteenth year of his age,13)This 18th year of his age may not have been referring to his birth-age, but rather to the Herodian Temple Era/Age, referred to in verse five. The Herodian Temple was begun in 18 or 17 BC. Yahshúa was betrothed-in-marriage to Miriám,14)The marriage to this Miriám, preceded the later marriage to Miriám Magdalena. virgin of the Tribe of Judah with whom he lived seven years,15)age 25 and she died, for Elohím took her, that he might go on to the higher things which he had to do, and to suffer for the sons and daughters of men.

His Seven Years in Egypt

11. And Yahshúa, after that he had finished his study of the Toráh, went down again into Egypt that he might learn of the wisdom of the Egyptians, even as Moshéh did. And going into the desert, he meditated and fasted and prayed, and obtained the power of the Holy Name, by which he wrought many miracles.
12. And for seven years he conversed with Elohím face to face, and he learned the language of birds and of animals, and the healing powers of trees, and of herbs, and of flowers, and the hidden secrets of precious stones, and he learned the motions of the Sun and the Moon and the Stars, and the powers of the letters, and mysteries of the Square and the Circle and the Transmutation of things, and of forms, and of numbers, and of signs.

His Return to Yisrael

From thence, he returned to Nazareth to visit his parents, and he taught there and in Jerusalem as an accepted Rabbi, even in the Miqdásh, none hindering him.16)…having been ordained while in Egypt in the 30th year of his age-era. Timeline correction; see chart. In Lection 8:8, in agreement with Luke 3:23, the text says that he began to be 30 years of age at his baptism by Yohanan. However, given the timeline of this gospel with these recovered episodes of his life (known as ‘the silent years’), this is not possible. For, when he returned to Nazareth, he taught as an accepted Rabbi (6:12) before ministering in eastern countries for several more years. Yahshúa finished his Toráh studies in Israel or perhaps in Egypt where he did advanced studies for 7-years. In Egypt, the “30th“ Year of the Herodian Temple Era began, and this is likely when he was ordained and began his ordained ministry, rather than later at his baptismal consecration and anointing as the King of Righteousness (Melchizedek & Mashíakh) in Chapter 8. Apparently, the tradition that he began his ministry at 30 years of age, was imported into Luke 3:23, as if it coincided with his baptism. Having recovered and inserted the lost information contained in 6:5-21 with an eye on Luke, Rev. Ousley failed to reset his ordination at age 30 into its proper place here in 6:11-12, leaving it in 8:8. See our timeline chart. It seems though, that he was given only a general view of the records in these matters. Others claimed that he went to India first at age 13, See the Aquarian Gospel. If so, this would place “His Childhood Miracles” section having occurred in India. One runs into problems with chronology when various episodes have been condensed and/or combined. One must live with ambiguities! Sometimes this is a deliberate sign of Allegory!

His Years in the East

13. AND after a time, he went into Assyria and India and into Persia and into the Land of the Chaldeans. And he visited their Temples and conversed with their Priests, and their wise men for many years, doing many wonderful works, healing the sick as he passed through their countries.
14. And the animals of the field had respect to him and the birds of the air were in no fear of him, for he made them not afraid, yea even the wild animals of the desert perceived the power of Elohím in him, and did him service, carrying him from place to place.
15. For the Spirit of Divine Humanity filling him, filled all things around him, and made all things subject to him, and thus shall yet be fulfilled the words of the Prophets, the Lion shall lie down with the Calf, and the Leopard with the Kid, and the Wolf with the Lamb, and the Bear with the Ass, and the Owl with the Dove. And a child shall lead them.
16. And none shall hurt or destroy in my holy mountain, for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Holy One even as the waters cover the bed of the sea. And in that day, I will make again a covenant with the animals of the earth and the fowls of the air, and the fishes of the sea and with all created things. And will break the bow and the sword and all the instruments of warfare will I banish from the earth, and will make them to lie down in safety, and to live without fear.
17. And I will betroth you to me forever in righteousness and in peace and in loving kindness, and you shall know your Elohím, and the Earth shall bring forth the grain the wine and the oil, and I will say to them which were not my people, ‘You are my people’; and they shall say to me, ‘You are our Elohím.’”
18. And on a certain day as he was passing by a mountain side near to the desert, there met him a Lion and many men were pursuing him with stones and javelins to slay him.
19. But Yahshúa rebuked them, saying, “Why do ye hunt these creatures of Elohím, which are more noble than you? By the cruelties of many generations they were made the enemies of man who should have been his friends.
20. If the power of Elohím is shown in them, so also is shown his long suffering and compassion. Cease ye to persecute this creature who desires not to harm you, do you not see how he flees from you, and is terrified by your violence?”
21. And the Lion came and lay at the feet of Yahshúa and showed love to him; and the people were astonished, and said, “Behold, this man loves all creatures and has power to command even these animals from the desert, and they obey him.”

(Alan Cronshaw notes that the following verse is found in later translations).

22. Now all the while Yahshúa was abroad, his brother Ya’aqoḅ (James) and cousin Yoḥanan (John the Baptist) were of a purpose to amass and teach The Way to a growing number of followers, each of their own; Ya’aqoḅ being in and around Jerusalem, and Yoḥanan all around and about the outlying and surrounding areas of Judea.


Chapter 7

The Preaching Of John The Baptist on Repentance (Reformation); Forbids Flesh Eating and Deeds of Cruelty; Enjoins Mercy to Humanity and Animals.

1. NOW in [27 AD, which is] the fifteenth year of the [co-regency] reign of Tiberius Caesar [with Augustus Caesar, 12-37 AD, and], Pontius Pilate being Governor of Judæa [26-36 AD], and Herod [the son of Herod the Great-who died in 4 BC] being Tetrarch of Galilee (Caiaphas being the High Priest, and Annas Chief of the Sanhedrin), the word of YHWH came to Yoḥanan the son of Zacharyáh, in the wilderness.
2. And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance/reformation for the remission of sins. As it is written in the prophets, “Behold I send my messenger before your face, who shall prepare your way before you; the voice of one crying in the wilderness, ‘Prepare ye the way of the Holy One, make straight the paths of the Anointed.
3. Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth. And all flesh shall see the salvation of Elohím.’”
4. And the same Yoḥanan had his raiment of camel’s hair, and a girdle of the same about his loins, and his food was the fruit of the locust tree and wild honey. Then went out to him Yerushalem, and all Judæa, and all the region round about Jordan, and were baptized of him in the Jordan confessing their sins.
5. And he said to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him, “O generation of disobedient ones, who has warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance and begin not to say within yourselves, ‘We have Abraham to our father.’
6. For I say to you, that Elohím is able of these stones to raise up children to Abraham. And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: every tree therefore which does not bring forth good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire.”
7. And the wealthier people asked him, saying, “What shall we do then?” He answered and said to them, “He that has two coats, let him impart to him that has none; and he that has food let him do likewise.”
8. Then came also certain tax collectors to be baptized and said to him, “Master, what shall we do?” And he said to them, “Exact no more than that which is appointed you and be merciful after your power.”
9. And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, “And what shall we do?” And he said to them, “Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely; and be content with sufficient wages.”
10. And to all he spoke, saying,

“Keep yourselves from blood and things strangled and from dead bodies of birds and animals, and from all deeds of cruelty, and from all that is wrongly obtained; Think ye the blood of animals and birds will wash away sin! I tell you, No! Speak the Truth. Be just, Be merciful to one another and to all creatures that live and walk humbly with your Elohím.”

11. And as the people were in expectation, and all men mused in their hearts of Yoḥanan, whether he were the Mashíakh or not, Yoḥanan answered; saying to them all, “I indeed baptize you with water; but One mightier than I comes, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose.
12. He shall also baptize you with water and with fire. Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.” And many other things in his exhortation he preached to the people.


Chapter 8

John (Yohanan) Testifies concerning Yahshua [Yahshu-Maryá [the Master, Yahshúa];
Yahshua’s Baptismal Consecration and Anointing

From Egypt, Yahshúa [had] returned to Nazareth to visit his parents,
and he taught there and in Jerusalem as an accepted Rabbi,
even in the Miqdásh, none hindering him.17)A Chronological Integration from chapter 6:12b

1. AND it was amid the summer, the tenth month.18)The 10th Month according to Judæan Establishment reckoning who began their civil new year in the 7th month, in contrast to the Essenes. Then comes Yahshúa from Galilee to the Jordan [River near its inlet to the Dead Sea] to Yoḥanan, to be baptized of him. But Yoḥanan forbade him, saying, “I have need to be baptized of you, and you come to me?” And Yahshúa answering said to him, “Permit it to be so now, for thus it behooves us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he permitted him.
2. And Yahshúa, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water; and, behold, the heavens were opened to him, and a bright cloud stood over him, and from behind the cloud Twelve Rays of light, and thence in the form of a Dove, the Spirit of Elohím descending and lighting upon him. And, behold, a voice from heaven saying, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; this day have I begotten you.”
3. And Yoḥanan bare witness of him, saying, “This was he of whom I spoke, ‘He that comes after me is preferred before me, for he was before me.’”
4a. And of his fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. For the Toráh was in part given by Moshéh, but grace and truth come in fullness by Yahshúa Mashíakh.
4b. No man has seen Elohím at any time. The unique one which comes from the bosom of the Eternal is Elohím revealed.19)Confused passage. Remove the phrase “in the same” in the original text and the confusion dissipates. Or, possibly, “in the name” would remedy it.
5a. And this is the record of Yoḥanan, when the Judæans sent Priests and Levites from Yerushalém to ask him, “Who are you? And he denied not, but confessed, “I am not the Mashíakh.”
5b. And they asked him, “What then? Are you Eliyahu?” And he said, “I am not.” “Are you that prophet of whom Moshéh spoke?” And he answered, “No.” Then they said to him, “Who are you, that we may give an answer to those that sent us? What do you say of yourself?” And he said, “I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way of the Holy One’ as said the Prophet Yeshayahu.”
6. And they which were sent were of the Pharisees, and they asked him and said to him, “Why then do you baptize, if you are not that Mashíakh, nor Eliyáhu, neither that prophet of whom Moshéh spoke?”
7. Yoḥanan answered them, saying, “I baptize with water; but there stands One among you, whom ye do not know. He shall baptize with water and with fire. He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe latchets I am not worthy to unloose.”
8. These things were done in Bethany, beyond Jordan,20)This is not the Bethany near the Mt of Olives. Rev. Ousley simply copied Bethabara from the KJV. Now recognized as a copyists edit originating from Origen. where Yoḥanan was baptizing. And Yahshúa began at this time to be thirty years of age, was indeed the Son of Yoséph and Miriám after the flesh; but after the Spirit, the Mashíakh, the Son of Elohím—the Father and Mother Eternal, as was declared by the Spirit of holiness with power.
9. AND Yoséph was the son of Ya’aqóḅ21)In Luke it says about his 30th year. Allegorically, 30 connects him with the Levites who served from 30-50 years of age. More exactly, his 32nd Year. and Elishéḅa, and Miriám was the daughter of Eli (called Joachim)22)To counter that argument, into the original Gospel of Luke (3:23-38) was inserted a genealogy which declared that Eli (by the law of Yaḅum marriage) actually fathered Yoseph (in place of Ya’aqob who died) and therefore, establishing his biological lineage through Nathan but his legal lineage thru Solomon. Thus, the GHT lineage in verse nine above confirms the lineages in Matthew and Luke. and Ḥannah,23)Both Yoseph and Miriam are of the House of David (GHT 4:2). Some incorrectly think the Lukan lineage was that of Miriám. who were the children of Dawíd and Bathshéḅa,24)“… who were the children of Dawíd and Bathshéḅa…” In accord with the ‘The Gospel of James’ and ‘The Aquarian Gospel’ this refers to Miriam’s parents. She is biologically descended from David through Solomon (not Nathan) and all three genealogical lists are in harmony and testify of Yahwshua’s Davidic legitimacy however one wants to determine it (GHT 4:2). Miriam was also a ‘close-relative’ of the Aharonic Elisheḅa, through marriage (Luke 1:5, 36). of Yahudáh and Shela, of Ya’aqóḅ and Leah, of Yitsḥáq and Rivkáh, of Aḅrahám and Sarah, of Seth and Ma’at, of Adam and Ḥawáh, who were the children of Elohím.


Chapter 9

The Four Tests 25)This may symbolize his Testing when he journeyed to the East; Note the Desert mentioned in 6:14, 18, 21. It is also mentioned in 6:11 concerning his trip to Egypt.

A CHRONOLOGICAL INTEGRATION FROM CHAPTER 6:13
AND after a time, he went into Assyria and India and into Persia and into the Land of the Chaldeans [to be tested by the Devil]. And he visited their Temples and conversed with their Priests, and their wise men for many years, doing many wonderful works, healing the sick as he passed through their countries.

1. THEN was Yahshúa led up of the spirit into the desert to be tested of the Devil.26)His departure into the desert/wilderness may symbolize his travels into the East as noted in 6:13. And the wild animals of the desert were around him and became subject to him. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterwards hungry.
2. And when the tempter came to him, he said, “If you are the Son of Elohím, command that these stones be made bread, for it is written, I will feed you with the finest of wheat and with honey, out of the rock will I satisfy you.”
3. But he answered and said, “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeded out of the mouth of Elohím.”
4. Then the Devil placed before him a woman, of exceeding beauty and comeliness and of subtle wit, and a ready understanding withal, and he said to him, “Take her as you will, for her desire is to you, and you shall have love and happiness and comfort all your life, and see your children’s children, yea is it not written, It is not good for man that he should be alone?”
5. And Yahshu-Maryá said, “Get you behind me, for it is written, Be not led away by the beauty of woman, yea, all flesh is as grass and the flower of the field; the grass withers and the flower fades away, but the Word of the Eternal endures forever. My work is to teach and to heal the children of men, and he that is born of Elohím keeps his seed within him.”
6. And the Devil takes him up into the holy city and sets him on a pinnacle of the Miqdásh. And said to him, “If you are the Son of Elohím, cast yourself down; for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning you; and in their hands they shall bear you up lest at any time you dash your foot against a stone.”
7. And Yahshúa said to him, “It is written again, You shall not tempt YHWH your Elohím.”
8. Then the Devil took him up into an exceeding high mountain amid a great plain and roundabout, twelve cities and their peoples, and shown from thence he shown unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the Devil said unto him, “All this power will I give you, and the glory of them: for that is delivered to me; and to whomsoever I will, I give it: for it is written, you shall have dominion from sea to sea, so you shall judge your people with righteousness and your poor with mercy, and. make a full end of oppression. If you therefore will worship me, all shall be yours.”
9. And Yahshúa-Maryá answered and said to him, “Get you behind me, Satan; for it is written, You shall worship your Elohím, and Him only shall you serve. Without the power of Elohím, the end of evil cannot come.”
10. Then the Devil having ended all the temptations, left him and departed for a season. And behold, angels of Elohím came and ministered to him.

(Alan Cronshaw notes that the following verse is found in later translations)

6:22. Now all the while Yahshúa was abroad [in the East], his brother Ya’aqoḅ (James) and cousin Yoḥanan (John the Baptist) were of a purpose to amass and teach The Way to a growing number of followers, each of their own; Ya’aqoḅ being in and around Jerusalem, and Yoḥanan all around and about the outlying and surrounding areas of Judea.

a chronological integration from chapter 6:22

Chapter 10

Yoséph And Miriám Make A Feast for Yahshúa; Miriam Magdalena, Phillip, Andrew, Kepha (Peter) and Nathaniel became his Disciples (Talmidim)

1. AND when he had returned from the desert [after several years of trials in the East], the same day, his parents made him a feast, and they gave to him the gifts which the Magi had presented to him in his infancy. And Miriám said, “These things have we kept for you even to this day, and she gave to him the gold and the frankincense and the myrrh. And he took of the frankincense, but of the gold he gave to his parents for the poor [Eḅioním], and of the myrrh he gave unto Miriám, who is called Magdalena.
2. Now this Miriám was of the city of Magdala in Galilee. And she was a great sinner and had seduced many by her beauty and comeliness. And the same came to Yahshúa by night and confessed her sins, and he put forth his hand and healed her, and cast out of her seven demons, and he said to her, “Go in peace, your sins are forgiven you.” And she arose and left all and followed him and ministered to him of her substance during the days of his ministry in Yisraél.
3. THE next day Yoḥanán saw Yahshúa coming to him, and said, “Behold the Lamb of Elohím, which by righteousness takes away the sin of the world. This is he of whom I said, He was before me; and I knew him not; but that he should be made manifest to Yisraél; therefore, I am come baptizing with water.”
4. And Yoḥanán testified, saying, “I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a Dove, and it abode upon him. And I knew him not, but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said to me, ‘Upon whom you shall see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizes with water and with fire, even the Spirit. And I saw and testified that this was the Son of Elohím.
5. THE day after, Yoḥanan stood by the Jordan and two of his disciples. And looking upon Yahshúa as he walked, he said, “Behold the Mashíakh, the Lamb of Elohím!” And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Yahshúa.
6. Then Yahshúa turned and saw them following and said to them, “What seek ye?” They said to him, “Rabbi, where do you reside? He said to them, “Come and see.” They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day, for it was about the tenth hour.
7. One of the two which heard Yoḥanan speak and followed him was Andrew, Shimon Kepha’s brother. He first found his own brother Shimon and said to him, “We have found the Mashíakh.” And he brought him to Yahshúa. And when Yahshúa beheld him, he said, “You are Shimon Bar Yona: You shall be called Kepha (meaning, a rock).”
8. THE day following, Yahshúa went forth into Galilee, and found Philip, and said to him, “Follow me.” Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Kepha. Philip found Nathanael, who is called Bar Tholmai, and said to him, “We have found him, of whom Moshéh in the Toráh and the Prophets did write, Yahshúa of Nazareth, the son of Yoséph and Miriám. And Nathanael said to him, “Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth?” Philip said unto him, “Come and see”.
9. Yahshúa saw Nathanael coming to him and said of him, “Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!” Nathanael said to him, “From where do you know me? Yahshúa answered and said to him, Before that Philip called you, when you were under the Fig tree, I saw you. Nathanael answered and said to him, “Rabbi, you are the Son of Elohím. You are the King of Yisraél. Yea, under the Fig tree did I find you.”
10. Yahshúa answered and said to him, “Nathanael Bar Tholmai, because I said to you, ‘I saw thee under the Fig tree, do you believe? You shall see greater things than these. And he said to him, “Truly, Truly, I say to you, hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of Elohím ascending and descending upon the Son of man.”

Section 2 of 10, Chapters 11 thru 20

In the House of Shimon the Pharisee; Miriám of Magdala (Magdalena) Anointed Yahshúa with Oil and Shimon Protested; Yahshúa Contrasted Each One’s Love for Him.

1. AND one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with him. And he went into the Pharisee’s house and sat down to eat.
2. And behold a certain woman of Magdala, who was reputed to be a sinner, was in the city, and when she knew that Yahshúa sat to eat in the Pharisee’s house, she brought an Alabaster box of ointment, and stood at his feet behind him, weeping, and washed His feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head and kissed his feet, and anointed them with ointment.
3. Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he thought within himself, saying, “This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that touches him: for she is a sinner.”
4. And Yahshúa answering said to him, “Shimon, I have somewhat to say to you. And he said, “Master, speak on.”
5. “There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred dinars and the other fifty. And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me, therefore, which of them will love him most.”
6. Shimón answered and said, “I suppose that he to whom he forgave most.” And he said to him, “You have rightly judged.”
7. And he said to Shimon, “Do you see this woman? I entered into your house, you gave me no water for my feet; but she has washed my feet with tears and wiped them with the hairs of her head. You gave me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in has not ceased to kiss my feet. My head with oil you did not anoint, but this woman has anointed my feet with ointment.
8. Wherefore I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much, not only man but also beast and birds of the air, yea, even the fishes of the sea; but to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little.”
9. And he said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.” And they who sat at the table began to say within themselves, who is this that also forgives sins?”
10. Though he had not said, “I forgive you” but, “Your sins are forgiven you” for, he discerned true faith and repentance in her heart. And Yahshúa needed not that any should testify of any man, for he himself knew what was in man.

Chapter 12

The Marriage In Cana; The Healing of the Nobleman’s Son

1. AND the next day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and [Miriám] he mother of Yahshúa was there: And both Yahshúa and Miriám of Magdala [Magdalena] were there, and his disciples came to the [their?] marriage.
2. And when they wanted wine, the mother of Yahshúa said to him, “They have no wine.” Yahshúa said to her, “Woman, what is that to you and to me? My hour is not yet come.” His mother said to the servants, “Whatsoever he says to you, do it.”
3. And there were set there six water-pots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Judæans, containing two or three firkins apiece. And Yahshúa said to them, “Fill the water-pots with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. And he said to them, “Draw out now, and take to the governor of the feast.” And they took it.
4. When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine to them and knew not from whence it came; the governor of the feast called the bridegroom and said to him. “Every man at the beginning does set forth good wine and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse; but you have kept the good wine until now.”
5. This beginning of miracles did Yahshúa in Cana of Galilee and manifested forth his glory; and many disciples believed on him.
6. After this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, with Miriám of Magdala [his wife?], and his brothers, and his disciples: and they continued there for many days.
7. And there arose a question between some of Yoḥanan’s disciples and the Judæans about purifying. And they came to Yoḥanan, and said to him, “Rabbi, he that was with you beyond Jordan, to whom you testified, behold, the same baptizes, and all do come to him.”
8. Yoḥanan answered and said, “A man can receive nothing, except it is given him from heaven. Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, ‘I am not the Mashíakh, but that I am sent before him.’
9. He that has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, which stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice; this my joy therefore is fulfilled. He must increase; but I must decrease. He that is of the earth is earthly and speaks of the earth: he that comes from heaven is above all.”
10. AND certain of the Pharisees came and questioned Yahshúa, and said to him, “How do you say that Elohím will condemn the world?” And Yahshúa answered, saying, “Elohím so loves the world, that the firstborn Son is given, and comes into the world, that whosoever keeps faith with him may not perish, but have everlasting life. Elohím does not send the Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him may be saved.
11. They who keep faith with him are not condemned: but they that do not keep faith are condemned already, because they have not kept faith with the name of the firstborn of Elohím. And this is the condemnation, that the light is come into the world, and men love darkness rather than light, because their deeds are evil.
12. For all they that do evil hate the light, neither do they come to the light, lest their deeds may be condemned. But they that do righteousness come to the light, that their deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in Elohím.”
13. AND there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum. When he heard that Yahshúa was come into Galilee, he went to him, and besought him that he would come down, and heal his son; for he was at the point of death.
14. Then said Yahshúa to him, “Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not keep faith.” The nobleman said to him, “Master, come down lest my child die.”
15. Yahshúa said to him, “Go your way; your son lives. And the man kept faith with the word that Yahshúa had spoken to him, and he went his way. And as, he was now going down, his servants met him, and told him, saying, “Your son lives.”
16. Then enquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said to him, “Yesterday of the seventh hour the fever left him.” So, the father knew that it was at the same hour, which Yahshúa said to him, “Your son lives.” And himself kept faith, and his whole house.

Chapter 13

The First Sermon in the Synagogue of Nazareth; A Blind Man’s Lack of Faith;
The People attempt to Kill Yahshúa.

1. AND Yahshúa came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the Shabbath day, and stood up for to read. And there was delivered unto him the roll of the prophet Yeshayáhu [Isaiah].
2. And when he had opened the scroll, he found the place where it was written. “The Spirit of YHWH is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those that are bound. To preach the acceptable year of YHWH.” Isaiah 61
3. And he closed the roll, and gave it back to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. And he began saying to them, “This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.” And all bare him witness and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, “Is this not the son of Yoséph?”
4. And some brought to him a blind man to test his power, and said, “Rabbi, here is a son of Abraham blind from birth. Heal him as you have healed Gentiles in Egypt.” And he, looking upon him, perceived his unbelief and the unbelief of those that brought him, and their desire to ensnare him. And he could do no mighty work in that place because of their unbelief.
5. And they said to him, to him, “Whatsoever we have heard done in Egypt, do also here in your own country. And he said, “Truly I say to you, No prophet is accepted in his own home or in his own country, neither does a physician work cures upon them that know him.
6. And I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Yisraél in the days of Eliyáhu, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land. But to none of them was Eliyáhu sent, except unto Sarepta, a city of Sidon, to a woman that was a widow.
7. And many lepers were in Yisraél in the time of Elisha the prophet; and none of them was cleansed, except Naaman the Syrian.”
8. And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath. And rose up, and thrust him out of the city, and led him to the brow of the hill whereon their city was built, that they might cast him down headlong. But he, passing through the midst of them, went his way and escaped them.

Chapter 14

Yahshúa Preaching and Healing in Galilee; The Calling of Andrew and Kepha, Ya’aqob and Yohanan; The Rebuke for Hunting and Cruelty to Animals; The Rebuke of a Rich Men.

1. NOW Herod the tetrarch, being reproved by Yoḥanan the Baptist for Herodia his brother Philip’s wife, and for all the evils which he had done, added yet this above all, that he shut up Yoḥanan in prison.
2. And Yahshúa began to preach, and to say, “Submit; for the kingdom of heaven is near.” And as he was walking by the sea of Galilee, he saw Shimon, called Kepha (Peter), and Andrew his brother, casting a net in the sea; for they were fishers. And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” And they straightway forsook their nets and followed him.
3. And going on from there, he saw other two brethren, Ya’acóḅ the son of Zebedee, and Yoḥanan his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them. And they immediately left their nets, and the ship, and their father, and followed him.
4. And Yahshúa went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. And the fame of his miracles went throughout all Syria, and they brought to him many sick people that were taken with various diseases and torments, and those which were lunatic, and those that had the palsy, and he healed them.  
5. And there followed him great multitudes of people from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and from Judæa, and from beyond Jordan.
6. AND as Yahshúa was going with some of his disciples, he met with a certain man who trained dogs to hunt other creatures. And he said to the man, “Why do you thusly?” And the man said, “By this I live and what profit is there to any in these creatures? these creatures are weak, but the dogs they are strong.” And Yahshúa said, “You lack wisdom and love. Lo, every creature which Elohím has made has its end, and purpose, and who can say what good is there in it? or what profit to yourself, or mankind?
7. And, for your living, behold the fields yielding their increase, and the fruit-bearing trees and the herbs; what more do you need than these which honest work of your hands will not give to you? Woe to the strong who misuse their strength, Woe to the hunters for they shall be hunted.”
8. And the man marveled, and left off training the dogs to hunt, and taught them to save life rather than destroy. And he learned of the doctrines of Yahshúa and became his disciple.
9 AND behold there came to him two rich men, and one said, “Good Master.” But he said, “Call me not good, for One alone is the All-Good, and that is Elohím.”
10. And the other said to him, “Master, what good thing shall I do and live?” Yahshúa said, “Perform the Toráh and the Prophets.” He answered, “I have performed them.” Yahshúa answered, “Go, sell all you have and divide with the poor [Eḅioním], and follow me.” But this saying did not please him.
11. And the Master said to him, “How can you say that you have performed the Toráh and the Prophets? Behold many of your brethren are clad with filthy rags, dying from hunger and your house is full of many goods, and there goes from it nothing to them.”
12. And he said to Shimon, “It is difficult for the rich to enter the kingdom of heaven, for the rich care for themselves, and despise them that have not.”

Chapter 15

The Healing of the Leper and the Paralyzed; Who Can Forgive Sins; The Deaf Man Healed who Denied that Others Could Hear & Was Corrected.

The Healing of the Leper

1. AND it came to pass, when he was in a certain city, behold a man full of leprosy, who, seeing Yahshúa, fell toward the earth, and besought him, saying, “Master, if you will, you can make me clean.” And he put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, “Blessed are you who believes; I will, be you clean.” And immediately the leprosy departed from him.
2. And he charged him saying, “Tell no man: but go, and shew yourself to the priest, and offer for your cleansing, according as Moshéh commanded, for a testimony to them. But so much the more went there a fame abroad of him; and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by him of their infirmities. And he withdrew himself into the desert and prayed.

The Healing of the Paralysed
3. AND it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the Toráh sitting by, to see them which were come out of every town, of Galilee, and Judæa, and Jerusalem, and the power of Elohím was present to heal them.
4. AND behold, they brought in a bed a man who was taken with a palsy: and they sought means to bring him in, and to lay him before him. And when they could not find by what way they might bring him in because of the multitude, they went upon the housetop, and let him down through the tiling with his couch into the midst before Yahshúa. And when he saw their faith, he said to him, “Man, your sins are forgiven you.”
5. And the Scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, “Who is this which speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but Elohím alone?” But when Yahshúa perceived their thoughts, he answering said to them, “Why reason ye in your hearts? Can even Elohím forgive sins, if a man does not repent? Who said, ‘I forgive you your sins?’ Did I not say, rather, ‘Your sins are forgiven you?’
6. Which is easier to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven you’; or to say, ‘Rise up and walk?’ But that ye may know that the Son of Man has power upon earth to discern and declare the forgiveness of sins (he said to the sick of the palsy), ‘I say to you, Arise, and take up your couch, and go to your house.’”
7. And immediately he arose up before them, and took up that whereon he lay, and departed to his own house, glorifying Elohím. And they were all amazed, and they glorified Elohím, and were filled with the Spirit of reverence, saying, “We have seen strange things today.”

The Deaf Man Healed & Corrected
8. AND as Yahshúa was going into a certain village there met him a man who was deaf from his birth. And he believed not in the sound of the rushing wind, or the thunder, or the cries of the animals, or the birds which complained of their hunger or their hurt, nor that others heard them.
9. And Yahshúa breathed into his ears, and they were opened, and he heard. And he rejoiced with exceeding joy in the sounds he before denied. And he said, “Now I hear all things.”
10. But Yahshúa said to him. “How do you say, ‘I hear all things?’ Can you hear the sighing of the prisoner, or the language of the birds or the animals when they commune with each other, or the voice of angels and spirits? Think how much you cannot hear and be humble in your lack of knowledge.”

Chapter 16

Calling of Lewi; Fasting of Yohanan’s Talmidim; New Wine Must Be Put in New Bottles.

1. AND after these things he went forth, and saw a tax gatherer, named Lewí, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he said to him, “Follow me.” And he left all, rose up, and followed him.
2. And Lewi made him a great feast in his own house: and there was a great company of tax collectors and of others that sat down with them. But the Scribes and Pharisees murmured against his disciples, saying, “Why do ye eat and drink with publicans and sinners?”
3. And Yahshúa answering said unto them, “They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”
4. And they said unto him, “Why do the disciples of Yoḥanan fast often, and make prayers, and likewise the disciples of the Pharisees; but yours eat and drink?|
5. And he said to them, “Wherewith shall I liken the men of this generation, and to what are they like? They are like unto children sitting in the marketplace and calling one to another and saying, ‘We have piped for you, and ye have not danced; We have mourned for you and ye have not lamented.’
6. For Yoḥanan the Baptist came neither eating nor drinking, and ye say, ‘He has a devil’; The Son of Man comes eating and drinking the fruits of the earth, and the milk of the flock, and the fruit of the vine, and ye say, ‘Behold a glutton and wino, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.’
7. Can ye make the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days.”
8. AND he also spoke this parable to them, saying, “No man puts a piece of new cloth upon an old garment; for then, the new agrees not with the old, and the garment is made worse.
9. And no one puts new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles, and is spilled, and the bottles shall perish. But new wine must be put into new bottles, and both are preserved.
10. None also having drunk old wine, immediately desires new: for they say, ‘The old is better’! But the time comes when the new shall grow old, and then, the new shall be desired by them. For as one changes old garments for new ones, so do they also change the body of death for the body of life, and that which is past for that which is coming.”

Chapter 17

Yahshúa Apostolized the Twelve and their Fellows; They are Forbidden to Eat what is Gotten by Taking Life; They who take not up their Cross (or, Staff) are not Worthy of Him.

1. AND Yahshúa went up into a mountain to pray. And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits—to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease. Now the names of the twelve apostles are these who stood for the twelve tribes of Yisraél:
2. Peter, called Kepha, for the tribe of Reuḅén; Ya’aqóḅ, for the tribe of Naphtali; Thomas, called Dydimus, for the tribe of Zabulon; Matithyáhu, called Lewi for the tribe of Gad; Yoḥanan, for the tribe of Ephraím; Shimón, for the tribe of Issachar.
3. Andrew for the tribe of Yoséph; Nathanaél, for the tribe of Shimón; Thaddeus, for the tribe of Zabulon; Ya’aqóḅ, for the tribe of Benjamin; Yahudáh, for the tribe of Dan; Philip, for the tribe of Asher. And Judas Iscariot, a Lewite, who betrayed him, was also among them (but he was not of them). And Matithyáhu and Barsabba were also present with them.
4. Then he called in like manner twelve others to be Prophets, men of light to be with the Apostle and show to them the hidden things of Elohím. And their names were Hermes, Aristobulus, Selenius, Nereus, Apollos, and Barsabba; Andronicus, Lucius, Apelles, Zachaeus, Urbanus, and Clementos. And then he called twelve who should be Evangelists, and twelve who should be Pastors. A fourfold twelve did he call that he might send them forth to the twelve tribes of Yisraél, unto each, four.
5. And they stood around the Master, clothed in white linen raiment, called to be a holy priesthood unto Elohím for the service of the twelve tribes whereunto they should be sent.
6. These fourfold Twelve Yahshúa sent forth and charged them, saying, “I will that ye be my Twelve Apostles with your companions, for a testimony into Yisraél. Go ye into the cities of Yisraél and to the lost sheep of the House of Yisraél. And as ye go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven’ is near. As I have baptized you in water, so ye baptize those who believe.
7. Anoint and heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils, freely ye have received, freely give. Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses. Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves; for the workman is worthy of his food;

and eat that which is set before you, but of that which is gotten by taking of life, touch not, for it is not permissible to you.

8. And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, enquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go forth. And when ye come into a house, salute it. And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.
9. Be ye wise as serpents and harmless as doves. Be ye innocent and undefiled. The Son of Man is not come to destroy but to save, neither to take life, but to give life, to body and soul.
10. And fear not them which kill the body but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in Gehenna.
11. Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without permission of the All Qodésh. Yea, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, if Elohím cares for the sparrow, shall he not care for you!
12. It is enough for disciples that they be as their master, and the servants as their master. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household? Fear them not therefore, for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; or hid, that shall not be known.
13. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light when the time comes: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. Whosoever therefore shall confess the truth before men, them will I confess also before my Parent Who is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny the truth before men, them will I also deny before my Parent Who is in heaven.
14. Truly I am come to send peace upon earth, but when I speak, behold a sword follows. I am come to unite, but, behold, a man shall be at variance with his father, and the daughter with her mother, and the daughter-in-law with her mother-in-law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. For the unjust cannot mate with them that are just.
15. They who take not their cross (or, staff) and follow after me are not worthy of me. He that finds his life shall lose it; and he that loses his life, for my sake, shall find it.”

Chapter 18

The Master Sent Forth Seventy-Two with Instructions; The Law of Karma (Sowing & Reaping)

1. AFTER these things the Master also appointed seventy-two and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place of the tribes where he himself would come.
2. Therefore he said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few, pray ye therefore the Master of the harvest that he would send forth laborers into the harvest.
3. Go your ways, behold I send you forth as lambs among wolves. Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes, and salute no man by the way.
4. And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house. And if the spirit of peace be there your peace shall rest upon it, if not it shall turn to you again.
5. And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you,

eat such things as are set
before you without taking of life.

And heal the sick that are therein, and say to them, ‘The kingdom of Elohím is come near to you.’
6. And in the same house remain,

eating and drinking such things as
they give without shedding of blood,

for the laborer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.
7. But into whatsoever city ye enter and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same and say, ‘Even the very dust of your city, which cleaves on us, we do wipe off against you; Regardless, be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of Elohím is come near to you.’
8. Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe unto you, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in you, they would have repented a great while ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. But it shall be more tolerable for them in the judgement than for you.
9. And you, Capernaum, which are exalted to heaven, shall be thrust down to Sheól. They that hear you, hear me also; and they that despise you, despise me also; and they that despise me, despise Him that sent me. But let all be persuaded in their own minds.”
10. AND again, Yahshúa said to them: “Be merciful, so shall ye obtain mercy. Forgive others, so shall ye be forgiven. With what measure ye measure, with the same shall it be measured back to you.
11. As ye do to others, so shall it be done to you. As ye give, so shall it be given to you. As ye judge others, so shall ye be judged. As ye serve others, so shall ye be served.
12. For Elohím is just and rewards everyone according to their works. That which they sow they shall also reap.”

Chapter 19

Yahshúa Teaches Prayer; Of Praying in Secret; The Life and Substance of all things; Error even in the Prophets; Of Forgiveness and Tenderness to Every Creature; A Withered Hand is Healed;

1. As Yahshúa was praying in a certain place on a mountain, some of his disciples came to him, and one of them said, “Master, teach us how to pray.” And Yahshúa said to them, “When you pray, enter into your secret chamber, and when you have closed the door, pray to Abba-Imma, Who is above and within you, and your Father-Mother Who sees all that is secret shall answer you openly.
2. But when ye are gathered together, and pray in common, use not vain repetitions, for your heavenly Parent knows what things ye have need of before ye ask them. After this manner therefore pray ye:
3. ‘Our Father-Mother, Who is above and within: Qodésh be Your Name in a twofold triad—In Wisdom, Love, and Equity; Your Kingdom come to all; Your will be done; As in Heaven so in Earth. Give us day by day to partake of Your qodésh bread and the fruit of the living vine. As You forgive us our trespasses, so may we forgive others who trespass against us. 4. Show upon us Your goodness, that to others we may show the same. In the hour of trial, deliver us from evil.’
5. And wheresoever there are seven gathered together in My Name there am I in the midst of them; yea, if only there be three or two; and where there is but one who prays in secret, I am with that one.”
6. “Raise the Stone and there you shall find me; Cleave the wood and there I am. For in the fire and in the water even as in every living form, Elohím is manifest as its Life and its Substance.”
7. AND the Master said, “If your brother has sinned in word seven times a day, and seven times a day has made amendment, receive him.” Shimón said to him, “Seven times a day?”
8. The Master answered and said to him, “I tell you also unto seventy times seven, for even in the Prophets, after they were anointed by the Spirit utterance of sin was found.
9. Be ye therefore considerate, be tender, be ye pitiful, be ye kind, not to your own kind alone, but to every creature which is within your care, for ye are to them as Elohím, to whom they look in their need. Be ye slow to anger, for many sin in anger, which they repented of, when their anger was past.”
10. AND there was a man whose hand was withered, and he came to Yahshúa and said, “Master, I was a Mason seeking sustenance by my hands. I beseech you! Restore to me my health that I may not beg for food with shame.” And Yahshúa healed him, saying, “There is a house made without hands, seek that you may dwell therein.”

Chapter 20

The Return of the Seventy-Two; The All Parent: The Father-Mother;
The Bliss of the Inner Circle.

1. AND after a season the seventy-two returned with joy, saying, “Master, even the demons are subject to us through your name.”
2. And he said to them, “I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
3. Behold! I give to you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Nevertheless, in this do not rejoice—that the spirits are subject to you; but rather, rejoice because your names are written in Heaven.”
4. In that hour Yahshúa rejoiced in spirit, and said, “I thank you, Holy Parent of heaven and earth, that you have hid these things from the wise and prudent, and have revealed them to babes: even so, All Holy,27)“All Holy” – “All (perfect) Parent”: “The One Who is Completely and Absolutely Separate and Other”, Who is, nevertheless, the perfect Parent—a perfect Father and Mother in one person. for so it seemed good in your sight.
5. All things are delivered to me of the All-Parent: and no man knows the Son or who is the Daughter,28)Added to the text in italics, or. This is truer to the next phrase in the passage. but the All Parent; nor does anyone know who the All-Parent is, but the Son and the Daughter, and they to whom the Son and the Daughter29)see, 31:7; 44:14 will reveal it.”
6. And he turned him to his disciples, and said privately, “Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see. For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear and have not heard them.
7. Blessed are ye of the inner circle who hear my word and to whom mysteries are revealed, who give to no innocent creature the pain of prison or of death, but seek the good of all, for to such is everlasting life. 8. Blessed are ye who abstain from all things gotten by bloodshed and death, and fulfill all righteousness: Blessed are ye, for ye shall attain to Eternal-Bliss.”30)The original word was Beatitude.

Section 3, Chapters 21 thru 30

Yahshúa Rebuked Cruelty to a Horse;
Condemned the Service of Mammon

1. AND it came to pass that the Master departed from the City and went over the mountains with his disciples. And they came to a mountain whose ways were steep and there they found a man with an animal of burden.
2. But the horse had fallen down, for it was over laden, and he struck it till the blood flowed. And Yahshúa went to him and said: “Son of cruelty, why do you strike your animal? Do you not see that it is too weak for its burden, and do you not know it suffers?”
3. But the man answered and said: “What do you have to do with this? I may strike it as much as it pleases me for it is mine and I bought it with a large sum of money. Ask them who are with you, for they are of my acquaintance and know of it.”
4. And some of the disciples answered and said: “Yes, Master, it is as he said. We saw when he bought it.” And the Master said again “Do ye not see then how it bleeds, and hear ye not also how it wails and laments?” But they answered and said: “No, Master, we do not hear that it wails and laments?”
5. And the Master was sorrowful and said: “Woe to you because of the dullness of your hearts, ye hear not how it laments and cries to the heavenly Creator for mercy, but three-times woes to him against whom it cries and wails in its pain.”
6. And he went forward and touched it, and the horse stood up, and its wounds were healed. But to the man he said: “Go now your way and strike it henceforth no more, if you also desire to find mercy.”  
7. AND seeing the people come to him, Yahshúa said to his disciples, “Because of the sick I am sick; because of the hungry I am hungry; because of the thirsty I am athirst.”
8. He also said,

“I am come to end the sacrifices and feasts of blood, and if ye cease not offering and eating of flesh and blood, the wrath of Elohím shall not cease from you, even as it came to your fathers in the wilderness, who lusted for flesh, and they eat to their content, and were filled with rottenness, and the plague consumed them.

9. And I say to you, Though ye be gathered together in my bosom, if ye keep not my commandments I will cast you forth. For if ye keep not the lesser mysteries, who shall give you the greater.
10. He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.
11. Therefore, if ye have not been faithful in the ‘mammon of unrighteousness’,31)Or, Unrighteous Mammon. This term holds a negative connotation as a selfish desire for wealth tending toward covetousness and idolatry. As the Apostle Sha’ul stated, “the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.” who will commit to your trust the true riches? And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another person’s, who shall give you that which is your own?
12. No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one and love the other; or else he will hold to the one and despise the other. Ye cannot serve Elohím and mammon. And the Pharisees32)The Pharisees (P’rushim) were a Separatist Party who attempted to separate themselves from the ritual impurity of other folk and tended to become elitist and seekers of power. They developed additional practices to ensure their purity—these practices often created conflicts with the actual teachings of the Original Toráh. Because of this, Yahshúa was at odds with them much of the time and some sought his demise. also, who were covetous, heard all these things, and they scoffed at him.
13. And he said to them, “Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but Elohím knows your hearts: for that, which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of Elohím.
15. Then, there came some women to him and brought their infants to him, to whom they still gave suckle at their breasts, that he should bless them; and some said, “Why trouble ye the master?”
16. But Yahshúa rebuked them, and said, “Of such ones will come forth those who shall yet [by oath of allegiance] confess me before men.” And he took them up in his arms and blessed them.

Chapter 22

The Restoration Of Jairus’ Daughter

1. AND behold there comes one of the rulers of the synagogue, Yair by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet, and he besought him greatly, saying, “My little daughter lies at the point of death; I ask you, come and lay your hands on her, that she may be healed, and she shall live.” And Yahshúa went with him, and many people followed him and thronged him.
2. AND a certain woman, which had a flow of blood twelve years and had suffered many things of many physicians and had spent all that she had and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse.
3. When she had heard of Yahshúa, she came in the crowd behind and touched his garments; For she said, “If I may touch but his garment, I shall be whole.” She found immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
4. And Yahshúa, immediately knowing in himself that power had gone out of him, turned himself about in the press and said, “Who touched my vesture?” And his disciples said to him, “You see the multitude thronging you and you say, “Who touched me?”
5. And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing. But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him and told him all the truth. And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you whole; go in peace and be whole of your plague.”
6. WHILE he yet spoke, there came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house certain ones which said, “Your daughter is dead: why do you trouble the Master any further?”
7. As soon as Yahshúa heard the word that was spoken, he said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not be afraid, only believe.” And he permitted no one to follow him except Kepha and Ya’aqóḅ and Yoḥanan—the brother of Ya’aqóḅ.
8. And he came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and saw the tumult and the minstrels, and those that lamented and greatly wailed.
9. And when he was come inside, he said to him, “Why make ye such ado and weep? The damsel is not dead but sleeps.” And they laughed him to scorn, for they thought she was dead, and believed him not. But when he had put them all out, he took two of his disciples with him, and entered in where the damsel was lying.
10. And he took the damsel by the hand and said to her, “Talitha cumi!”; (interpreted as) “Damsel, I say to you, ‘Arise’”!
11. And straightway the damsel arose and walked. And she was of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great amazement.
12. And he charged them straightly that no man should make it known, and commanded that something should be given to her food to eat.

Chapter 23

Yahshúa And The Samaritan Woman

1. THEN Yahshúa came to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Ya’aqóḅ gave to his son Yoséph.
2. Now the well of Ya’aqóḅ was there. Yahshúa therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat alone on the edge of the well, and it was about the sixth hour.
3. And there came a woman of Samaria to draw water; Yahshúa said to her, “Give me to drink.” (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy food).
4. Then said the woman of Samaria to him, “How is it that you, being a Yahudí, asks drink of me, who am a woman of Samaria?” (for the Yahudím have no dealings with the Samaritans.)
5. Yahshúa answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of Elohím and who it is that said to you, ‘Give me drink’, you would have asked of Elohím, who would have given you living water.”
6. The woman said to him, “Sir, you have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep, from whence have you that living water. Are you greater than our father Ya’aqóḅ, who gave us the well and drank thereof, himself and his children and his camels and oxen and sheep.
7. Yahshúa answered and said to her, “Whosoever drinks of this water shall thirst again but whosoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; yes, the water that I shall give him shall be in him, ‘a well of water’ springing up into eternal life.”
8. The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water, so that I thirst not, neither come here to draw.” Yahshúa said to her, “Go, call your husband and come here.” The woman answered, and said, “I have no husband.”
9. Yahshúa looking upon her, answered and said to her, “You have spoken well, ‘I have no husband’. For you have had five husbands and he whom you now have is not called your husband, in that you spoke truly.”
10. The woman said to him, “Sir, I perceive that you are a prophet. Our fathers worshipped in this mountain and ye say that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.”
11. Yahshúa said to her, “Woman, believe me, the hour comes, when ye shall neither in this mountain nor yet at Jerusalem worship Elohím. Ye worship ye know not what; we know what we worship; for salvation is of Yisraél.
12. But the hour comes and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the All-Parent in spirit and in truth; for such worshippers, the All-Holy seeks. Elohím is spirit and they that worship must worship in spirit and in truth.”
13. The woman said to him, “I know that Mashíakh comes (who is called the Christos); When he comes, he will tell us all things.” Yahshúa said to her, “I am he who speaks to you.”
14. And upon this, his disciples came and marveled that he talked with the woman, yet no man said, “What do you seek? or, Why do you talk with her?”
15. The woman then left her water pot, and went her way into the city and said to the men, “Come, see a man which told me all things that ever I did: Is not this the Mashíakh?”
16. Then they went out of the city and came to him, and many of the Samaritans believed on him, and they besought him that he would stay a while with them; and he remained there two days.

Chapter 24

Yahshúa Denounces Cruelty to Animals; He Healed the Sick

1. As Yahshúa passed through a certain village he saw a crowd of idlers of the baser sort, and they were tormenting a cat which they had found and were shamefully treating it. And Yahshúa commanded them to desist and began to reason with them, but they would have none of his words, and reviled him.
2. Then he made a whip of knotted cords and drove them away, saying, “This earth which my Father-Mother made for joy and gladness, ye have made into the lowest hell with your deeds of violence and cruelty; And they fled before his face.”
3. But one more vile than the rest returned and defied him. And Yahshúa put forth his hand, and the young man’s arm withered, and great fear came upon all; and one said, “He is a sorcerer!”
4. And the next day the mother of the young man came to Yahshúa, asking that he would restore the withered arm. And Yahshúa spoke to them of the Toráh of Love and the Unity of All Life in the One Family of Elohím.33)EL + ELAH = ELOAH, two in one. ELOHÍM is plural and speaks of the same, two in one and can also speak of many. It can serve as a plural of majesty. It depends upon the context. And he also said,

“As ye do in this life to your fellow creatures,
so shall it be done to you in the life to come.”

5. And the young man believed and confessed his sins, and Yahshúa stretched forth his hand, and his withered arm became whole even as the other. And the people glorified Elohím who had given such power unto man.
6. AND when Yahshúa departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, “You son of Dawíd, have mercy on us!” And when he was come into the house the blind men came to him, and Yahshúa said to them, “Do ye believe that I am able to do this?”
7. They said to him, “Yes, Master!” Then he touched  their eyes, saying, “According to your faith, be it to you.” And their eyes were opened, and Yahshúa straightly charged them, saying, “See that ye tell no man.” But they, when they were departed, spread abroad his fame in all that country.
8. As they went forth, behold, they brought to him a dumb man possessed with a demon. And when the demon was cast out the dumb spoke, and the multitude marveled, saying, “It was never so seen in Yisraél.” But the Pharisees said, “He casts out demons through the prince of the demons.”
9. AND Yahshúa went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and announcing, ‘the good news of the kingdom’ and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
10. But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.
11. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few; ask ye therefore the Master of the harvest, that he will send forth laborers into his harvest.”
12. AND his disciples brought him two small baskets with bread and fruit, and a pitcher of water. And Yahshúa set the bread and the fruit before them, and also the water. And they did eat and drink and were filled.
13. And they marveled, for each had enough and to spare, and there were four thousand. And they departed blessing Elohím for what they had heard and seen.

Chapter 25

The Sermon on the Mount (Part I)

1. Yahshúa seeing the multitudes, went up into a mountain: and when he was seated, the twelve came to him, and he lifted up his eyes on his disciples and said:
2. “Blessed in spirit are the poor [the eḅiyoním], for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are they who do hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled.
3. Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see Elohím. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of Elohím. Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness sake: for theirs is the kingdom of Elohím.
4. Yes, blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake. Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven, for in the like manner did their fathers to the prophets.
5. Woe to you that are rich! for ye have received in this life your consolation. Woe to you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep. Woe to you when all men shall speak well of you, for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
6. Ye are the salt of the earth, for every sacrifice [you make] must be salted with salt, but if the salt has lost its savour, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot.
7. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is built on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick, and it gives light to all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Parent who is in heaven. 8. Do not conclude that I have come to destroy the Toráh [Law] or the Naḅi’im [Prophets]: I did not come to destroy them; rather to fullfill them. For truly, I say to you, until heaven and the earth passes-away, one letter or one marking will in no way pass from the Toráh or the Prophets until all is fulfilled.34)GHT 76:13 (Jn 17:4; 19:30) “I have glorified You on earth, I have finished the work You gave me to do.” GHT 82:26   When Yahshúa had therefore received the vinegar, he cried aloud, “It is finished” and he bowed his head and gave up the spirit. And it was the ninth hour. But behold, one greater than Moshéh is here, and he will give you the Higher Law—yes, the Perfect Law, and this Law shall you obey.
9. Whoever, then, breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches men to do so, will be called ‘least’ in the Malḳút ha’Shamáyim; but whoever does and teaches them, he will be called ‘great’ in the Malḳút ha’Shamáyim. 10. Truly they who believe and obey shall liberate their souls, and they who do not obey shall be remain ‘lost’. For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness [hypocrisy] of the Soferím35)Mt 23:1-3 Among these Soferím/Scribes, were those, who in some way, were offshoots associated with DSS Qumran Zadokians, who had been derogatively nicknamed, Herodians (Mk 3:6; 12:13; Mt 22:16). Yahshúa, as a Carmelite Essene rather than a Qumran Zadokite, broke from their extremist views and became a target for assassination. (Some believe Essene to be from Aramaic, Assaya, meaning healing or healers or Therapeuts (See Revelation 22:2 …the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. (Healing in both: Greek: Therapeia; Aramaic: אסיֻותָא Asyutho). Philo also connects Essenes with an alternate title with the word “holy” or “holy ones/saints” (In Hebrew: Qedoshím), as does the New Testament. Others believe Essene to be a hybrid word deriving from the word Ḥasidim(pious kind ones) or Osseans (doers of the law) Maybe all of these words describe them. See Josephus, “Wars…” 2.8.13. and P’rushím, you will by no means enter into the Malḳút ha’Shamáyim.
11. Therefore, if you bring your gift to the altar and there remember that your brother has anything against you, leave there your gift before the altar, and go your way; first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.
12. Agree with your adversary quickly, while you are in the way with him; lest at any time your adversary deliver you to the Judge, and the Judge deliver you to the officer, and you be cast into prison. Truly I say unto you, You shall by no means come out thence till you have paid the uttermost farthing.
13. Ye have heard that it has been said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them that hate you.
14. Bless them that curse you and pray for them which despitefully use you; That ye may be the children of your Parent who makes the sun to rise on the evil and the good and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
15. For if ye love them which love you what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them. And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners even do the same. And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even so the tax collectors?
16. And if a desire is to you as your life, and it turns you from the truth, cast it out from you, for it is better to enter life possessing truth, than losing it, to be cast into outer darkness.
17. And if that seems desirable to you which costs another pain or sorrow, cast it out of your heart; So, shall you attain to peace. Better it is to endure sorrow than to inflict it on those who are weaker.
18. Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Parent who is in heaven is perfect.”

Chapter 26

The Sermon On The Mount (Part II)

1. “TAKE heed that ye not do your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Parent who is in heaven. Therefore, when you do your alms, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Truly I say unto you, they have their reward.
2. But when you give alms, let not your left hand know what your right hand does, and take heed that your alms may be in secret; and the Secret One which sees in secret shall approve then, openly.
3. And when you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets that they may be seen of men. Truly I say unto you, They have their reward.
4. But you, when you pray enter into your chamber and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father-Mother who is in secret; and the secret One that sees in secret shall approve you openly.
5. And when ye pray in common, use not vain petitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be ye not therefore like unto them: for your heavenly Parent knows what things ye have need of, before ye ask. After this manner therefore pray ye, when ye are gathered together:
6. Our Parent Who art in heaven: Hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom, come. Thy will be done; in earth as it is in heaven. Give us day by day our daily bread, and the fruit of the living Vine. As You forgive us our trespasses, so may we forgive the trespasses of others. Leave us not in temptation. Deliver us from evil. Amein.

Another version was given in 19:3

3. ‘Our Father-Mother, Who is above and within: Qodésh be Your Name in a twofold triad: In Wisdom, Love, and Equity; Your Kingdom come to all; Your will be done; As in Heaven so in Earth. Give us day by day to partake of Your qodésh bread and the fruit of the living vine. As You forgive us our trespasses, so may we forgive others who trespass against us. 4. Show upon us Your goodness, that to others we may show the same. In the hour of trial, deliver us from evil.’
7. For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Parent will also forgive you: but if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Parent in heaven forgive you your trespasses.
8. Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance; for they disfigure their faces that they may appear unto men to fast. Truly I say unto you, they have their reward.
9. And I say unto you, Unless ye fast from the world and its evil ways, ye shall in no wise find the Kingdom; and except ye keep the Shabbath and cease your haste to gather riches, ye shall not see the Father-Mother in heaven. But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, so that you do not appear unto men to fast, and the Qadósh One who sees in secret will approve you openly.
10. Likewise also do ye, when ye mourn for the dead and are sad, for your loss is their gain. Be not as those who mourn before men and make loud lamentation and rend their garments, that they may be seen of men to mourn. For all souls are in the hands of Elohím, and they who have done good, do rest with your ancestors in the bosom of the Eternal.11. Pray ye rather for their rest and advancement and consider that they are in the land of rest, which the Eternal has prepared for them and have the just reward of their deeds, and do not murmur as those without hope.
12. Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust does corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust does corrupt and where thieves do not break through nor steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
13. The lamps of the body are the eyes: if therefore your sight be clear, your whole body shall be full of light. But if your eyes are dim or lacking, your whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
14. No man can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other; or else he will hold to the one and despise the other. Ye cannot serve Elohím and mammon.
15. Therefore I say unto you, Do not be overly anxious for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet, for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than food and the body than raiment? And what shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world and lose his life?
16. Behold the fowls of the air; for they do not sow, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Parent feeds them. Are ye not much better cared for than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why spend all your thought for clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin. And yet I say unto you, Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
17. Wherefore shall not Elohím who clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
18. Therefore be not overly anxious, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (all of which things the Gentiles do seek). For your heavenly Parent knows that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of Elohím and its righteousness and all these things shall be added to you. Meet not in advance the evils of the morrow; sufficient for the day is the evil thereof.”

Chapter 27

The Sermon On The Mount (Part III)

1. “JUDGE not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again; and as ye do unto others, so shall it be done unto you.
2. And why do you behold the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but consider not the beam that is in your own eye? Or how will you say to your brother, Let me pull the speck out of your eye; and behold a plank is in your own eye? You hypocrite! First cast the beam out of your own eye; and then shall you see clearly to cast the mote out of your brother’s eye.
3. Give not that which is holy unto the dogs neither cast ye your pearls before swine; lest they trample them under their feet and turn again and rend you.
4. Ask and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: for everyone that asks receives, and he that seeks finds, and to them that knock it shall be opened.
5. What man is there of you who, if his child asks bread, will give it a stone? Or, if it asks a fish, will give it a serpent? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Parent Who is in heaven give good things to them that ask?
6. Therefore all things whatsoever ye desire that men should do to you, do ye even so to them. And what ye would not that men should do unto you, do ye not so unto them; for this is the Toráh and the Prophets.
7. Enter ye in at the strait gate, for strait is the way and narrow the gate that leads to life, and few there are that find it. But wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat.
8. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
9. Even so, every good tree brings forth good fruit, but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit. Every tree that does not bring forth good fruit is only fit to be cut down and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know the good from the evil.
10. Not everyone that says unto me, ‘Master, Master,’ shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father-Mother who is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, ‘Master, Master, have we not prophesied in your Name? and in your Name have cast out devils? and in your Name done many wonderful works?’ And then will I say unto them, ‘I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work Lawlessness.’
11. Therefore whosoever hears these sayings of mine, and does them, I will liken him unto a wise man who built his house foursquare upon a rock. And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew upon that house; and it fell not, for it was founded upon a rock.
12. And everyone that hears these sayings of mine, and does them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand, and the rain descended, and the floods came and the winds blew and beat upon that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it. But a city which is built foursquare, enclosed in a circle or on the top of a hill, and established on a rock, can neither fall nor be hidden.”
13. And it came to pass, when Yahshúa had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine. For he taught them as one appealing to the reason and the heart, and not as the Scribes who taught, rather by authority.

Chapter 28

Yahshúa Releases the Rabbits and Pigeons

1. IT came to pass one day as Yahshúa had finished his discourse, in a place near Tiberias where there are seven wells, a certain young man brought live rabbits and pigeons that he might have to eat with his disciples.
2. And Yahshúa looked on the young man with love and said to him, You have a good heart and Elohím shall give you light, but know you not that Elohím in the beginning gave to man the fruits of the earth for food, and did not make him lower than the ox, or the horse, or the sheep, that he should kill and eat the flesh and blood of his fellow creatures.
3. Ye believe that Moshéh indeed commanded such creatures to be slain and offered in sacrifice and eaten, and so do ye in the Miqdásh, but behold, a greater than Moshéh is here, and he comes to put away the bloody sacrifices of the Toráh and the feastings on them, and to restore to you the pure oblation, and un-bloody sacrifice as in the beginning, even the grains and fruits of the earth.
4. Of that which ye offer unto Elohím in purity shall ye eat, but of that kind which ye do not offer in purity ye shall not eat, for the hour comes when your sacrifices and feasts of blood shall cease, and ye shall worship Elohím with a holy worship and a pure Oblation.  
5. Let these creatures therefore go free, that they may rejoice in Elohím and bring no guilt to man. And the young man set them free, and Yahshúa broke their cages and their bonds.  
6. But lo, they feared lest they should again be taken captive, and they went not away from him, but he spoke to them and dismissed them, and they obeyed his word, and departed in gladness.  
7. AT that time as they sat by the well, which was in the midst of the six, Yahshúa stood up and cried out, If any are thirsty, let them come unto me and drink, for I will give to them of the waters of life.
8. They who believe in me, out of their hearts shall flow rivers of water, and that which is given unto them shall they speak with power, and their doctrine shall be as living water.
9. (This he spoke of the Spirit, which they that believed on him should receive, for the fullness of the Spirit was not yet given because that Yahshúa was not yet glorified).
10. Whosoever drinks of the water that I shall give shall never thirst, but the water which comes from Elohím shall be in them a well of water, springing up unto everlasting life.
11. AND at that time Yoḥanan sent two of his disciples, saying, Are you he that should come, or do we look for another? And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits, and unto many blind, he gave sight.
12. Then Yahshúa answering said to them, Go your way, and tell Yoḥanan what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached. And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.
13. And when the messengers of Yoḥanan were departed, he began to speak unto the people concerning Yoḥanan. “What went ye out into the wilderness for to see? A reed shaken with the wind, or a man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they which are gorgeously appareled, and live delicately, are in kings’ courts.
14. But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? Yes, I say unto you, and the greatest of prophets.
15. This is he, of whom it is written, ‘Behold, I send my messenger before your face, which shall prepare your way before you.’ For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women, there is not a greater prophet than Yoḥanan the Baptist.”
16. And all the people that heard him, and the tax collectors, justified Elohím, being baptized with the baptism of Yoḥanan. But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of Elohím against themselves, being not baptized of him.

Chapter 29

The Feeding of the Five Thousand with Six Loaves and Seven Clusters Of Grapes; Healing Of The Sick

1. AND the Feast of the Passover drew near, and the Apostles and their fellows gathered themselves together to Yahshúa [The Liberator sent by YHWH] and told him all things, both what they had done and what they had taught. And he said to them, “Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.”
2. And they privately departed into a desert place by ship. And the people saw them departing, and many knew him, and ran afoot there out of all cities, and outran them, and came together to him.
3. And Yahshúa, when he came forth, saw much people and was moved with compassion towards them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd.
4. And the day was far spent, and his disciples came to him and said, “This is a desert place, and now the time is far passed. Send them away, that they may go into the surrounding country into the villages and buy themselves bread, for they have nothing to eat.”
5. He answered and said to them, “Ye give them food to eat.” And they say to him, “Shall we go and buy two hundred Denarím of bread, and give it to them to eat?”
6. He said to them, “How many loaves do ye have? Go and see.” And when they knew, they said, “Six loaves and seven clusters of grapes.” And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies of fifty upon the grass. And they sat down in ranks by hundreds and by fifties.
7. And when he had taken the six loaves and the seven clusters of grapes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke the loaves, and the grapes also and gave them to his disciples to set before them and they divided them among them all.  
8. And they did all eat and were filled. And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments that were left. And they that did eat of the loaves and of the fruit were about five thousand men, women and children, and he taught them many things.
9. And when the people had seen and heard, they were filled with gladness and said, “Truly this is that Prophet that should come into the world.” And when he perceived that they would take him by force to make him a king, he straightway constrained his disciples to get into the ship and to go before him to the other side to Bethsaida, while he sent away the people.  
10. And when he had sent them away, he departed into a mountain to pray. And when evening was come, he was there alone, but the ship was now amid the sea, tossed with waves, for the wind was contrary.  
11. The third watch of the night Yahshúa went to them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, “It is a spirit!” And they cried out for fear. But immediately Yahshúa spoke to them, saying, “Be of good cheer; It is I; do not be afraid.”  
12. And Kepha answered him and said, “Master, if it is you, bid me to come to you on the water.” And he said, “Come.” And when Kepha was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Yahshúa. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid, and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, “Master, save me!”  
13. And immediately Yahshúa stretched forth his hand, and grabbed him, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt? For did I not call you?”
14. And he went up to them into the ship, and the wind ceased, and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure and wondered. For they considered not the miracle of the loaves and the fruit, for their heart was hardened.
15. And when they were come into the ship there was a great calm. Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, “Of a truth, you are a Son of Elohím!”
16. And when they had passed over, they came unto the land of Gennesaret and drew to the shore. And when they were come out of the ship, immediately they knew him. And ran through that whole region round about and began to carry about in beds, those that were sick, where they heard he was.
17. And wherever he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets and besought him that they might touch, if it were but the border of his garment, and as many as touched him were made whole.  
18. After these things Yahshúa came with his disciples into Judæa, and there he tarried and baptized many who came to him and received his doctrine.

Chapter 30

The Bread of Life and the Living Vine

1. THE day following, the people which stood on the other side of the sea, saw that there had been no other boat there, except the one where his disciples had entered into and that Yahshúa went not with his disciples into the boat, but that his disciples were gone alone. And when the people therefore saw that Yahshúa was not there, neither his disciples, they also took ship and came to Capernaum, seeking for Yahshúa.
2. And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said to him, “Rabbi, how did you get here? Yahshúa answered them and said, “Truly, Truly, I say to you, ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves and the fruit and were filled. Labor not for the food which perishes, but for that food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man, who is also the Child of Elohím, shall give to you, for him has Elohím, the All Parent, sealed.”
3. Then said they to him, “What shall we do that we may work the works of Elohím?” Yahshúa answered and said to them, “This is the work of Elohím, that ye believe the truth which is in me and who gives the Truth and the Life to you.”
4. They therefore said to him, “What sign then do you show that we may see and believe you? What do you work? Our fathers ate manna in the desert. As it is written, “He gave them bread from heaven to eat.”
5. Then Yahshúa said to them, “Truly, Truly, I say to you, Moshéh did not give ye the true bread from heaven, but my Parent gives ye the true bread from heaven and the fruit of the living vine. For the food of Elohím is that which comes down from heaven and gives life unto the world.”
6. Then said they to him, “Master, forever give us this bread, and this fruit.” And Yahshúa said to them, “I am the true Bread. I am the living Vine. They that come to me shall never hunger, and they that keep faith in me shall never thirst. And, truly I say to you, unless ye eat the flesh and drink the blood of Elohím, ye have no life in you. But ye have seen me and do not believe.
7. All that my Parent has given to me shall come to me, and they that come to me, I will in no way cast out. For I came down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of Elohím who sent me. And this is the will of Elohím who has sent me, that of all which are given to me, I should lose none, but should raise them up again at the last day.”
8. The Judæans then murmured at him, because he said, “I am the bread which comes down from heaven.” And they said, “Is this not Yahshúa, the son of Yoséph and Miriám whose parentage we know? How is it then that he says, “I came down from heaven?”
9. Yahshúa therefore answered and said to them, “Murmur ye not among yourselves. None can come to me except holy Love and Wisdom draws them, and these shall rise at the last day. It is written in the prophets; ‘They shall be all taught of Elohím’. Every man therefore that has heard and has learned of the Truth, comes to me. 10. Not that anyone has seen the Holiest at any time, except those which are of the Holiest, they alone, see the Holiest. Truly, Truly, I say to you, They who believe [embrace] the Truth, have everlasting life.”

Chapter 31

Section 4, Chapters 31 thru 40   

The Bread of Life and the Living Vine; Yahshúa Rebuked the Thoughtless Driver

1. AGAIN Yahshúa said, “I am the true Bread and the living Vine. Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness and are dead. This is the food of Elohím which comes down from heaven, that whosoever eats thereof shall not die. I am the living food which came down from heaven; if any eat of this food, they shall live forever; and the bread that I will give is My truth and the wine which I will give is my life.”
2. And the Judæans strove amongst themselves, saying, “How can this man give us himself for food?” Then Yahshúa said, “Do ye think that I speak of the eating of flesh, which ye ignorantly do in the Miqdásh of Elohím?”
3. Truly, my body is the substance of Elohím, and truly this is food, and my blood is the life of Elohím, and this is drink indeed. Not as your ancestors, who craved for flesh, and Elohím gave them flesh in his wrath, and they ate of corruption till it stank in their nostrils, and their corpses fell by the thousand in the wilderness by reason of the plague.  
4. Of such it is written, They shall wander nine and forty years in the wilderness till they are purified from their lusts, lest they enter into the land of rest, yea, seven times seven years shall they wander because they have not known My ways, neither obeyed My laws.’
5. But they who eat this flesh and drink this blood dwells in me and I in them. As the Father-Mother of life has sent me, and by whom I live, so they that eat of me, who am the truth and the life, even they shall live by me.
6. This is that living bread which coming down from heaven gives life to the world. Not as your ancestors did eat manna and are dead. They that eat of this bread and this fruit, shall live forever.” These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum. Many therefore of his disciples when they heard this, said, “This is a hard saying. Who can receive it?”
7. When Yahshúa knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said to them, “Does this offend you? What and if ye shall see the Son and Daughter of man36)see, 20:5; 44:14 ascend to where they were before? It is the spirit that quickens, the flesh and blood profits nothing. The words that I speak to you, they are spirit and they are life.
8. But there are some of you that do not believe [embrace]. For Yahshúa knew from the beginning who they were who should not believe, and who should betray him. Therefore, he said to them, “No one can come to me, unless it were given from above.”
9. From that time many of his disciples went back and walked no more with him. Then Yahshúa said to the twelve, “Will ye also go away?”
10. Then Shimón Kepha answered him, “Master, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. And we believe and we are sure that you are that Mashíakh, a Son of the living Elohím.”
11. Yahshúa answered them, “Have not I chosen you Twelve, and also, one who is a traitor?” He spoke of Judas Iscariot son of Shimón the Levite, for he it was that should betray him.
12. AND Yahshúa was traveling to Jerusalem, and there came a camel heavy laden with wood. And the camel could not drag it up the hill where he went for the weight thereof, and the driver beat him and cruelly ill-treated him, but he could make him go no further.
13. And Yahshúa seeing this, said to him, “Why do you beat your brother?” And the man answered, “I did not know that he is my brother. Is he not an animal of burden and made to serve me?”
14. And Yahshúa said, “Has not the same Elohím made of the same substance the camel and your children who serve you, and have ye not one breath of life which ye have both received from Elohím?
15. And the man marveled much at this saying, and he ceased from beating the camel, and took off some of the burden and the camel walked up the hill as Yahshúa went before him and stopped no more till he ended his journey. 16. And the camel knew Yahshúa, having felt of the love of Elohím in him. And the man inquired further of the doctrine, and Yahshúa taught him gladly and he became his disciple.

Chapter 32

Elohím the Food and Drink of All

1. AND it came to pass as he sat at supper with his disciples, one of them said to him, “Master, how do you say that you will give your flesh to eat and your blood to drink, for it is a difficult saying to many?”
2. And Yahshúa answered and said, “The words which I spoke to you are Spirit and they are Life. To the ignorant and the carnally minded they savour of bloodshed and death; but, blessed are they who understand.
3. Behold the grain which grows up into ripeness and is cut down, and ground in the mill, and baked with fire into bread! Of this bread is my body made, which ye see. And behold the grapes which grow on the vine to ripeness, and are plucked and crushed in the winepress, and yield the fruit of the vine! Of this fruit of the vine and of water is made my blood.
4. For of the fruits of the trees and the seeds of the herbs alone do I partake, and these are changed by the Spirit into my flesh and my blood. Of these alone and their like shall ye eat who believe in me, and are my disciples, for of these, in the Spirit come life and health and healing to man.
5. Truly, my Presence shall be with you in the Substance and Life of Elohím, manifested in this body and this blood. And of these ye all shall eat and drink who believe [embrace and keep faith] in me.
6. For in all places I shall be lifted up for the life of the world, as it is written in the prophets, ‘From the rising up of the sun unto the going down of the same, in every place a pure Oblation with incense shall be offered unto my Name.’
7. As in the natural so in the spiritual. My doctrine and my life shall be food and drink to you, —the Bread of Life and the Wine of Salvation.
8. As the corn and the grapes are transmuted into flesh and blood, so must your natural minds be changed into spiritual. Seek ye the transformation of the natural into the Spiritual.
9. Truly I say to you, in the beginning, all creatures of Elohím did find their sustenance in the herbs and the fruits of the earth alone, till the ignorance and the selfishness of man turned many of them from the use which Elohím had given them to that which was contrary to their original use, but even these shall yet return to their natural food, as it is written in the prophets, and their words shall not fail.
10. Truly, Elohím ever gives of the Eternal Life and Substance to renew the forms of the universe. Thus, it is of the flesh and blood, even the Substance and Life of the Eternal, that ye are partakers to life, and my words are spirit and they are life.
11. And if ye keep My commandments and live the life of the righteous, ye shall be happy in this life, and in that which is to come. Marvel not therefore that I said to you, Unless ye eat of the flesh and drink the blood of Elohím, ye have no life in you.”
12. And the disciples answered saying: Master, forever, give us to eat of this bread and to drink of this cup; For, truly, your words are food and drink; By your Life and by your Substance may we live forever.

Chapter 33

By the Shedding of Blood of Others Is No Remission Of Sins

1. YAHSHÚA was teaching his disciples in the outer court of the Miqdásh, and one of them said to him: “Master, it is said by the priests that without shedding of blood there is no remission. So, can the blood offerings of the Toráh take away sin?”
2. And Yahshúa answered: “No blood offering, of animal or bird, or man, can take away sin, for how can the conscience be purged from sin by the shedding of innocent blood? No, it will increase the condemnation.
3. The priests indeed receive such offering as a reconciliation of the worshippers for the trespasses against the Toráh of Moshéh, but for sins against the Toráh of YHWH there can be no remission, save by teshuváh and amendment.
4. Is it not written in the prophets, ‘Put away your blood sacrifices to your burnt offerings, and away with them, and cease ye from the eating of flesh, for I spoke not to your fathers nor commanded them, when I brought them out of Mitsrayim, concerning these things? But this thing I commanded saying:
5, ‘Obey my voice and walk in the ways that I have commanded you, and ye shall be my people, and it shall be well with you.’ But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear.
6. And what does the Eternal command you but to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with your Elohím? Is it not written that in the beginning Elohím ordained the fruits of the trees and the seeds and the herbs to be food for all flesh?
7. But they have made the House of Prayer a den of thieves, and for the pure Oblation with Incense, they have polluted my altars with blood, and eaten of the flesh of the slain.
8. But I say to you, Shed no innocent blood nor eat ye flesh. Walk uprightly, love mercy, and do justly, and your days shall be long in the land.
9. The grain that grows from the earth with the other grain, is it not transformed by the Spirit into my flesh? The grapes of the vineyard, with the other fruits are they not transformed by the Spirit into my blood? Let these, with your bodies and souls, be your Memorial to the Eternal.
10. In these the presence of Elohím is manifest as the Substance and as the Life of the world. Of these ye shall eat and drink for the remission of sins, and for eternal life, to all who obey my words.”  
11. Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market, a pool which is called Bethesda, having five porches. In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the waters.
12. For at a certain season, an angel went down into the pool and troubled the waters; whosoever went first into the waters was made whole of whatever disease he had. And a man, impotent from his birth, was there.
13. And Yahshúa said to him, “Do not the waters bring healing? He said to him, “Yea, Master, but I have no man, when the water is troubled to put me in, and while I am trying to come, another steps down before me.” And Yahshúa said to him, “Arise, take up your bed and walk.” And immediately he rose and walked. And on the same day was the Shabbath.
14. Therefore, the Judæans said to him, “It is the Shabbath. It is not lawful for you to carry your bed.” And he that was healed knew not that it was Yahshúa. And Yahshúa had transported himself away, a multitude being in that place.

Chapter 34

Love of Yahshúa for All Creatures

1. WHEN Yahshúa knew how the Pharisees had murmured and complained because he made and baptized more disciples than Yoḥanan, he left Judæa, and departed to Galilee.
2. AND Yahshúa came to a certain tree and abode beneath it many days. And there came Miriám  Magdalena and other women and ministered to him of their substance, and he taught daily all that came to him.
3. And the birds gathered around him, and welcomed him with their song, and other living creatures came to his feet, and he fed them, and they ate out of his hands.
4. And when he departed, he blessed the women who showed love to him, and turning to the fig tree, he blessed it also, saying, “You have given me shelter and shade from the burning heat, and additionally you also have given me food. 5. Blessed be you, increase and be fruitful, and let all who come to you, find rest and shade and food, and let the birds of the air rejoice in your branches.”
6. And behold the tree grew and flourished exceedingly, and its branches took root downward, and sent shoots upward, and it spread mightily, so that no tree was like it, for its size and beauty, and the abundance and goodness of its fruit.
7. AND as Yahshúa entered into a certain village he saw a young cat which had none to care for her, and she was hungry and cried to him, and he took her up, and put her inside his garment, and she lay in his bosom.
8. And when he came into the village, he set food and drink before the cat, and she ate and drank and showed thanks to him. And he gave her to one of his disciples, who was a widow, whose name was Lorenza, and she took care of her.
9. And some of the people said, “This man cares for all creatures. Are they his brothers and sisters that he should love them?” And he said to them, Truly, these are your fellow creatures of the great Household of Elohím, yea, they are your brethren and sisters, having the same breath of life in the Eternal.
10. And whosoever cares for one of the least of these, and gives it to eat and drink in its need, the same does it to me, and whoso willingly suffers one of these to be in want, and does not defend it when evilly treated, permits the evil as done to me; for as ye have done in this life, so shall it be done to you in the life to come.

Chapter 35

The Good Law; Miriám and Martha

1. AND behold a certain lawyer stood up and tested him, saying, “Master, what shall I do to gain eternal life?” He said to him, “What is written in the Toráh? How do you read it?”
2. And answering, he said, “You shall not do to others as you desire that they should not do to you. You shall love your Elohím with all your heart and all your soul and all your mind. You shall do to others as you would that they should do to you.”
3. And he said to him, “You have answered right, this do, and you shall live; on these three commandments hang all the Toráh and the Prophets, for whoever loves Elohím, loves his neighbor also.”
4. But he, willing to justify himself, said to Yahshúa, “And who is my neighbor? And Yahshúa answering said, “A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment and wounded him and departed leaving him half dead.
5. And by chance there came down a certain priest that way. And when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. And likewise, a Levite also came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.
6. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was, and when he saw him, he had compassion on him. And went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own animal, and brought him to an inn and took care of him.
7. And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two dinars, and gave them to the host, and said, ‘Take care of him and whatsoever more you spend, when I come again, I will repay you.’
8. Which now of these three, do you think, was neighbor to him that fell among thieves? And he said, “He that showed mercy on him.” Then Yahshúa said to him, “Go, and you do likewise.”
9. Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village, and a woman named Martha received him into her house. And she had a sister called Miriám, who also sat at Yahshúa’s feet, and heard his word.
10. But Martha was overwhelmed with much serving and came to him saying, “Master, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? So, speak to her that she may help me.”
11. And Yahshúa answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things, but one thing is needful, and Miriám has chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.”
12. AGAIN, as Yahshúa sat at supper with his disciples in a certain city. He said to them, “As a table is set upon twelve pillars, so am I in your midst.
13. Truly I say to you, wisdom builds her house and hews out her twelve pillars. She does prepare her bread and her oil and mingles her wine. She does furnish her table.
14. And she stands upon the high places of the city, and cries to the sons and the daughters of men! ‘Whosoever will, let them turn in here, let them eat of my bread and take of my oil, and drink of my wine.
15. Forsake the foolish and live and go in the way of understanding. The veneration of Elohím is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. By me shall your days be multiplied, and the years of your life shall he increased.’”

Chapter 36

The Woman Taken In Adultery

1. ON a certain day, early in the morning, Yahshúa came again into the Miqdásh, and all the people came to him, and he sat down and taught them.
2. And the Scribes and Pharisees brought to him a woman taken in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst, they said to him, “Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very acts. Now Moshéh, in the Toráh, commanded us that such should be stoned, but what do you say?”
3. This they said, testing him, that they might have a basis to accuse him. But Yahshúa stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he had not heard them.
4. So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said to them, “He that is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone at her.”
5. And again he stooped down and wrote on the ground. And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even to the last. And Yahshúa was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
6. When Yahshúa had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said to her, “Woman, where are those your accusers? Has no man condemned you?” She said to him, “No man, Master. And Yahshúa said to her, “Neither do I condemn you. From henceforth sin no more; go in peace.”
7. AND he spoke this parable to certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: “Two men went up into the Miqdásh to pray; the one a rich Pharisee, learned in the Law, and the other a tax collector, who was a sinner.
8. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself; Elohím, I thank you, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector. I fast twice in the week. 1 give tithes of all that I possess.
9. And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes to heaven, but smote upon his breath, saying, ‘Elohím be merciful to me a sinner.’
10. I tell you that this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; For, every one that exalts himself shall be abased; And, he that humbles himself shall be exalted.”

Chapter 37

The Re-generation Of The Soul

1. YAHSHÚA sat in the porch of the Miqdásh, and some came to learn his doctrine, and one said to him, “Master, what do you teach concerning life?”
2. And he said unto them, “Blessed are they who suffer many experiences, for they shall be made perfect through suffering: they shall be as the angels of Elohím in Heaven and shall die no more, neither shall they be born any more, for death and birth have no more dominion over them.
3. They who have suffered and overcome shall be made Pillars in the Miqdásh of my Elohím, and they shall go out no more. Truly, I say to you, unless ye be born again of water and of fire, ye cannot see the kingdom of Elohím.”
4. And a certain Rabbi (Nicodemus) came unto him by night, for fear of the Judæans, and said to him. “How can a man be born again when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born again?”
5. Yahshúa answered, Truly, I say to you, unless a man be born again of flesh and of spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of Elohím. The wind blows where it lists, and ye hear the sound thereof, but cannot tell from where it comes or where it goes.
6. The light shines from the East all the way to the West. Out of the darkness, the Sun arises and goes down into darkness again; so is it with man, from the ages to the ages.
7. When it comes from the darkness, it is that he has lived before, and when it goes down again into darkness, it is that he may rest for a little while, and thereafter again exist.
8. So, through many changes, ye must be made perfect, as it is written in the book of Job, ‘I am a wanderer, changing place after place and house after house, until I come to the City and Mansion which is eternal.’”
9. And Nicodemus said to him, “How can these things be?” And Yahshúa answered and said to him, ‘Are you a teacher in Israel, and understand not these things? Truly, we speak that which we do know, and bear witness to that which we have seen, and ye receive not our witness.
10. If I have told you of earthly things and ye do not believe, how shall ye believe if I tell you of Heavenly things? No man has ascended into Heaven, but he that descended out of Heaven, even the Son-Daughter of man which is in Heaven.”

Chapter 38

Yahshúa Condemns the Ill-Treatment Of Animals

1. AND some of his disciples came and told him of a certain Egyptian, a son of Belial, who taught that it was lawful to torment animals, if their sufferings brought any profit to men.
2. And Yahshúa said to them, “Truly, I say to you, they cannot be righteous, who partake of benefits which are gotten by wronging one of Elohím’s creatures; Nor, can they touch holy things, or teach the mysteries of the kingdom, whose hands are stained with blood, or whose mouths are defiled with flesh.
3. Elohím gives the grains and the fruits of the earth for food; And, for righteous man, truly, there is no other lawful sustenance for the body.
4. The robber who breaks into the house made by man is guilty, but they who break into the house made by Elohím, even of the least of these, are the greater sinners. Wherefore, I say to all who desire to be my disciples, keep your hands from bloodshed and let no flesh enter your mouths, for Elohím is just and bountiful, who ordains that man shall live by the fruits and seeds of the earth alone.
5. But if any animal suffers greatly, and if its life be a misery to it, or if it be dangerous to you, release it from its life quickly, and with as little pain as you can. Send it forth in love and mercy, but do not torment it, and Elohím, the Father-Mother, will show mercy to you, as ye have shown mercy to those given into your hands.
6. And whatsoever ye do to the Cast of these my children, ye do it to me. For I am in them and they are in me; Yea, I am in all creatures and all creatures are in me. In all their joys I rejoice, in all their afflictions I am afflicted. Wherefore I say to you: Be ye kind one to another, and to all the creatures of Elohím.”
7. AND it came to pass the day after, that he came into a city called Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and many people.
8. Now when he came near to the gate of the city, behold there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow. And many people of the city were with her.
9. And when the Master saw her, he had compassion on her, and said to her, “Weep not, your son sleeps.” And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, “Young man, I say to you, Arise!”
10. And he that was considered dead sat up and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother. And there came an awe upon all. And they glorified Elohím, saying, “A great prophet is risen up among us; and Elohím has visited his people.

Chapter 39

Seven Parables of the Kingdom of Heaven

1. AGAIN, Yahshúa was sitting under the Fig tree, and his disciples gathered round him, and, round them came a multitude of people to hear him, and said to them, To what shall I liken the Kingdom of Heaven?”
2. And he spoke this parable, saying. “The kingdom of Heaven is likened to a certain seed, small among seeds, which a man takes and sows in his field, but when it is grown, it becomes a great tree which sends forth its branches all around, which again, shooting downward into the earth takes root and grows upward, till the field is covered by the tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof and the creatures of the earth find shelter beneath it.”
3. ANOTHER parable he put forth to them, saying, “The kingdom of Heaven is likened to a great treasure hid in a field, the which when a man finds he hides it, and for joy thereof goes and sells all that he has and buys that field, knowing how great the wealth from it will be.”
4. AGAIN: “The kingdom of Heaven is likened to one pearl of great price, which is found by a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, and the merchant finding it, sells all that he has and buys it, knowing how many more times it is worth than that which he gave for it.”
5. AGAIN: “The Kingdom of Heaven is likened to a woman who takes of the incorruptible leaven and hides it in three measures of meal, till the whole is leavened; And, being baked by fire, becomes one loaf. Or, again: To one who takes a measure of pure wine and pours it into two or four measures of water, till the whole being mingled becomes the fruit of the vine.
6. AGAIN: “The Kingdom of Heaven is likened to a City built foursquare on the top of a high hill, and established on a rock, and strong in its surrounding wall, and its towers and its gates, which lie to the north, and to the south, and to the east,  and to the west. Such a city falls not, neither can it be hidden, and its gates are open to all, who, having the keys, will enter therein.
7. AND he spoke another parable, saying: “The Kingdom of Heaven is likened to good seed that man sowed in his field, but in the night, while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares also among the wheat and went his way. But when the blade sprung up and brought forth fruit in the ear, there appeared the tares also. 8. And the servants of the householder came to him and said, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? Why then does it have tares?’” And he said to them, “An enemy has done this!” 9. And the servants said to him, “Then, do you desire that we go and gather them up?” But he said, “No, lest perhaps while ye gather up the tares, ye root up the good wheat with them. 10. Let both grow together until the harvest, and in the time of the harvest, I will say to the reapers, ‘Gather up first the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them and enrich the soil but gather the wheat into my barn.’”
11. AND AGAIN, he spoke, saying, “The kingdom of Heaven is likened to the sowing of seed. Behold a sower went forth to sow, and as he sowed, some seeds fell by the wayside, and the fowls of the air came and devoured them. 12. And others fell upon rocky places without much earth, and straightway they sprang up because they had no deepness of earth, and when the sun was risen, they were scorched, and because they had no root they withered away. 13. And others fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them. And others fell upon good ground, ready prepared, and yielded fruit, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. They who have ears to hear let them hear.”

Chapter 40

Yahshúa Expounds His Inner Teaching To The Twelve

1. AND the disciples came and said to him, “Why do you speak to the multitude in parables?” He answered and said to them, “Because it is given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of Heaven, but to them it is not given.
2. For whosoever has, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance; But, whosoever has not, from him shall be taken away even that which he seems to have.
3. Therefore, I speak to them in parables because they, seeing, see not, and hearing, they hear not, neither do they understand.
4. For in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Yeshayáhw, which said, ‘Hearing ye shall hear and shall not understand and seeing ye shall see and shall not perceive; for this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing and their eyes they have closed, lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted and I should heal them.’
5. But blessed are your eyes for they see, and your ears for they hear, and your hearts for they understand. For truly I say to you, that many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them, and hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.”
6. THEN Yahshúa sent the multitude away and his disciples came to him, saying, “Declare to us the parable of the field.” And he answered and said to them, “He that sows the good seed is the Son of man [Bar Enosh – Prototype of Humanity]; the field is the world, the good seed are the children of the kingdom, but the tares are the children of the unrighteous. The enemy that sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the world, and the reapers are the angels.
7. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which act lawlessly, and shall cast them into a furnace of fire, and they who will not be purified shall be utterly consumed. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the Sun in the kingdom of Heaven.”
8. “HEAR ye also the parable of the sower. The seed that fell by the wayside is like as when any hear the word of the kingdom, and understand it not, then comes the wicked one and catches away that which was sown in their heart. These are they which received seed by the wayside.
9. And they that received the seed into stony places, the same are they that hear the Word and presently with joy receive it. Yet they have not root in themselves but endure only a while, for when tribulation or persecution arises because of the Word, by and by they are offended.
10. They also that received seed among the thorns are they that hear the Word, and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the Word, and they become unfruitful.
11. But they that receive the seed into the good ground, are they that hear the Word and understand it, who also bear fruit and bring forth, some thirty, some sixty, some a hundredfold. 12. These things I declare unto you of the inner circle; but to those of the outer in parables. Let them hear who have ears to hear.”

Section 5, Chapters 41 thru 50

Yahshúa Set Free the Caged Birds; The Blind Man who Denied that Others Saw

1. AND as Yahshúa was going to Jericho there met him a man with a cage full of birds which he had caught and some young doves. And he saw how they were in misery having lost their liberty, and moreover being tormented with hunger and thirst.
2. And he said to the man, “What are you doing with these?” And the man answered, “I go to make my living by selling these birds which I have taken.”
3. And Yahshúa said, “What do you think, if another, stronger than you or with greater craft, were to catch you and bind you, or your wife, or your children, and cast you into a prison, in order to sell you into captivity for his own profit, and to make a living?
4. Are not these your fellow creatures, only weaker than you? And does not the same Elohím, our Father-Mother care for them as for you? Let these your little brethren and sisters go forth into freedom and see that you do this thing no more but provide honestly for your living.”
5. And the man marveled at these words and at his authority, and he let the birds go free. So, when the birds came forth, they flew to Yahshúa and stood on his shoulder and sang to him.
6. And the man inquired further of his doctrine, and he went his way, and learnt the craft of making baskets, and by this craft he earned his bread, and afterwards he broke his cages and his traps, and became a disciple of Yahshúa.
7. AND Yahshúa beheld a man working on the Shabbath, and he said to him, “Man, if you know what you do, you are blessed, for you break not the Toráh in the spirit; but if you know not, you are accursed and a transgressor of the Toráh.”
8. And again, Yahshúa said to his disciples, “What shall be done to these servants who, knowing their Master’s will, prepare not themselves for his coming, neither do according to his will?
9. Truly I say to you, they that know their Master’s will, and do it not, shall be beaten with many stripes. But they, who not knowing their Master’s will, do it not, shall be beaten with but few stripes. To whomsoever much is given, of them is much required. And to whom little is given, from them is required but little.”
10. AND there was a certain man who was blind from his birth. And he denied that there were such things as Sun, Moon, and Stars, or that color existed. And they tried in vain to persuade him that other people saw them; and they led him to Yahshúa, and he anointed his eyes and made him to see.
11. And he greatly rejoiced with wonder and fear and confessed that before he was blind. And now after this, he said, “I see all, I know everything, I am like Elohím.”
12. And again, Yahshúa said to him, “How can you know all? You cannot see through the walls of your house, nor read the thoughts of your fellow men, nor understand the language of birds, or of animals. You cannot even recall the events of your former life, conception, or birth.
13. Remember with humility how much remains unknown to you, yea, unseen, and doing so, you may see more clearly.”

Chapter 42

Yahshúa Teaches Concerning Marriage; The Blessing of Children

1. AND it came to pass that when Yahshúa had finished these sayings, he departed from Galilee and came into the coasts of Judæa beyond Jordan; and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them there.
2. The Pharisees also came to him, testing him and saying to him, “Is it lawful for a man to put away a wife for every cause?”
3. And he answered and said to them, “In some nations, one man has many wives, and puts away whom he will for a just cause; and in some, a woman has many husbands, and puts away whom she will for a just cause; and in others, one man is joined to one woman, in mutual love, and this is the first and the better way.
4. For have ye not read that Elohím who made them at the beginning, made them male and female, and said, ‘For this cause shall a man or a woman leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife or her husband, and they two shall be one flesh.’
5. Wherefore they are no more two, but one flesh. What therefore Elohím have joined together, let not man put asunder.”
6. They said to him, “Why did Moshéh then command to give a writing of divorcement?” He said to them, “Moshéh, because of the hardness of your hearts, permitted you to put away your wives, even as he permitted you to eat flesh, for many causes, but from the beginning it was not so.
7. And I say to you, Whosoever shall put away a wife, except it be for a just cause, and shall marry another in her place, commits adultery.” His disciples say to him, “If the case of the man is so with his wife, it is not good to marry.”
8. But he said to them, “All cannot receive this saying, except those to whom it is given. For there are some, celibates who were so born from their mother’s womb, and there are some, which were made celibates of men, and there are some, who have made themselves celibates for the kingdom of Heaven’s sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.”
9. THEN there came unto him little children that he should put his hands on them and bless them, and the disciples rebuked them.
10. But Yahshúa said, “Permit little children to come to me and do not forbid them, for of such is the kingdom of Heaven.” And he laid his hands on them and blessed them.
11. AND as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off. And they lifted up their voices, and said, “Yahshúa, Master, have mercy on us.”
12. And when he saw them, he said to them, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified Elohím and fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks. And he was a Samaritan.
13. And Yahshúa answering said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? Are there not any found that returned to give glory to Elohím, except this ‘stranger’. And he said to him, “Arise, go your way, your faith has made you whole.”

Chapter 43

Yahshúa Teaches Concerning the Riches of this World and the Washing of Hands and Eating Of Unwashed Foods

1. AND, behold, one came and said to him. “Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?” And he said to him, “Why do you call me good? There is none good but One, that is, Elohím; But, if you will enter into life, keep the mitzvoth.” He said to him, “Which are they?”
2. Yahshúa said, “What does Moshéh teach? You shalt not kill, you shall not commit adultery, you shalt not steal, you shall not bear false witness, honour your father and your mother and you shall love your neighbor as yourself.” The young man said to him, “All these things have I kept from my youth up; What do I still lack?”
3. Yahshúa said to him, “If you will to be perfect, go and sell that you have in abundance, and give to those who have not, and you shall have treasure in heaven; and come and follow me.”
4. But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions, yea, more than satisfied his needs.
5. Then said Yahshúa to his disciple, “Truly I say to you, that the rich man shall with difficulty enter into the kingdom of Heaven. And again, I say to you, It is easier for a camel to go through the ‘gate of the needle’s eye’ than for a rich person to enter into the kingdom of Elohím.”
6. When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, “Who then can be saved?” But Yahshúa beheld them, and said to them, “For the carnal mind this is impossible, but with the spiritual mind all things are possible.
7. And I say to you, do not make for yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness that when ye fail they may receive you into their earthly habitations; But rather of the true riches, even the wisdom of Elohím, that ye may so be received into everlasting mansions which fade not away.”
8. Then Kepha said to him, “Behold we have forsaken all and followed you.” And Yahshúa said to them, “Truly I say to you, that ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man [Bar Enosh: the son & the daughter of humanity] shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Yisraél, but the things of this world it is not mine to give.
9. And everyone that has forsaken riches, houses, and friends, for the sake of the kingdom of Heaven and its righteousness, shall receive a hundredfold in the age to come and shall inherit everlasting life. But many that are first shall be last, and many that are last shall be first.”
10. AND there came to him certain of the Scribes and Pharisees who had seen one of his disciples eat with unwashed hands.
11. And they found fault, for the Judæans do not eat unless they have first washed their hands and many other things they observe, in the washing of cups and of vessels and of tables.
12. And they said, “Why do not all your disciples walk after the tradition of the elders, for we saw one who did eat with unwashed hands?”
13. And Yahshúa said, “Well has Moshéh commanded you to be clean, and to keep your bodies clean, and your vessels clean, but ye have added things, which often cannot be observed by everyone at all times and in all places.
14. Hearken to me, therefore, not only unclean things entering into the body of man defile the man, but much more do evil and unclean thoughts, which pour from the heart of man, defile the inner man and defile others also. Therefore, take heed to your thoughts and cleanse your hearts and let your food be pure.
15. These things ye ought to do and not to leave the others undone. Whoever breaks the law of purification out of necessity, are blameless, for they do it not of their own will, neither despising the law which is just and good. For cleanliness in all things is great gain.
16. Be ye not followers of evil fashions of the world even in appearance; For, many are led into evil by the outward appearance, and the likeness of evil.”

Chapter 44

The Confession of the Twelve 

1. AGAIN Yahshúa sat near the sea, in a circle of twelve palm trees, where he often resorted, and the Twelve and their fellows came to him, and they sat under the shade of the trees, and the holy one taught them, sitting in their midst.
2. And Yahshúa said to them, “Ye have heard what men in the world say concerning me, but whom do ye say that I am?” Kepha rose up with Andrew his brother and said, “You are the Mashíakh, the Son of the living Elohím, who descends from heaven and dwells in the hearts of them who believe and obey to righteousness.” And the rest rose up and said, each after his own manner, “These words are true, so we believe.”
3. And Yahshúa answered them saying, “Blessed are ye my twelve who believe, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but the spirit of Elohím, which dwells in you. I indeed am the Way, the Truth and the Life; And, the Truth understands all things.
4. All truth is in Elohím, and I bear witness to the truth. I am the true Rock, and on this Rock do I build my Assembly, and the gates of Sheól shall not prevail against it, and out of this Rock shall flow rivers of living water to give life to the peoples of the earth.
5. Ye are my chosen twelve. In me, the Head and Cornerstone, are the twelve foundations of my house built on the rock, and on you in me shall my Assembly be built, and in truth and righteousness shall my Assembly be established.
6. And ye shall sit on twelve thrones and send forth light and truth to all the twelve tribes of Yisraél after the Spirit, and I will be with you, even to the end of the world.
7. But there shall arise after you, men of perverse minds who shall through ignorance or through craft, suppress many things that I have spoken to you, and lay to me things that which I never taught, sowing tares among the good wheat which I have given you to sow in the world. 
8. Then shall the truth of Elohím endure the contradiction of sinners, for thus it has been, and thus it will be. But the time comes when the things which they have hidden shall be revealed and made known, and the truth shall make free those which were bound.
9. One is your Master; all ye are brethren, and one is not greater than another in the place which I have given to you, for ye have one Master, even Mashíakh, who is over you and with you and in you, and there is no inequality among my twelve, or their fellows.
10. All are equally near to me. Therefore, strive ye not for the first place, for ye are all first, because ye are the foundation stones and pillars of the Assembly, built on the truth which is in me and in you, and the truth and the Toráh ye shall establish for all, as shall be given to you.
11. Truly, when ye and your fellows agree together touching anything in my Name, I am amid you and with you.
12. Woe is the time when the spirit of the world enters into the Assembly and my doctrines and precepts are made void through the corruption of men and of women. Woe is the world when the Light is hidden. Woe is the world when these things shall be.”
13. AT that time Yahshúa lifted his voice and said, “I thank You, O most righteous Parent, Creator of Heaven and Earth, that though these things are hidden from the wise and the prudent [of this world], they are nevertheless revealed to babes.
14. No one knows You,37)This verse was adjusted as it was also in “The Gospel of the Nazirenes”, though not in the same way. except the Son [the Bar-Enosh], which is inclusive of the Daughter [see, 20:5; 31:7].38)Daniel 7:13 speaks of this “Bar-Enosh” which Yahshúa testifies is a term that means Son & Daughter of Humanity. This implies that the Mashiakh is a duality of Son & Daughter, which translates to Yahshúa and Magdalena (though her role is still muted & hidden in this Gospel account and nearly eliminated in the canonical gospels). See, The Gospel of the Beloved Companion: The Complete Gospel of Mary Magdalene, Jehanne de Quillan, © 2010. Also see, The Holy Megillah: The Nasarean Bible of the Essene Way @ www.essene.org/blog/. See also, The Gospel of Phillip, and, The Gospel of Thomas. None knows the Daughter or the Son [the Bar-Enosh] except they to whom the Mashíakh is revealed [by You] Who is the Two in One.”
15. “Come to me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and ye shall find rest for your souls. For my yoke is equal and it is easy, my burden is light and presses not unequally.”

Chapter 45

Seeking For Signs; The Unclean Spirit

1. THEN certain of the Scribes and of the Pharisees answered saying, “Master, we wish to see a sign from you.” But he answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas.
2. Yea, as Jonas 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, and afterward he shall rise again.39)Cf. 20:5; 31:7; 43:8; 44:14; 45:2; 51:2, 9; 64:8, 10; 72:5; 76:10; 83:10; 84:9; 88:6
3. The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation and shall condemn it, because they repented at the preaching of Jonas, and behold a greater than Jonas is here.
4. The Queen of the South shall arise in the judgment with this generation and shall condemn it; For, she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold, a greater than Solomon is here.”
5. AGAIN he said: “When the unclean spirit is gone out of any, he walks through dry places seeking rest, and finding none. It said, “I will return into my house from whence I came out. And when he is come, he finds it empty, swept and garnished, for they asked not the Good Spirit to dwell within them and be their eternal Guest.
6. Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there, and the last state of all such is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also to this wicked generation, which refuses entrance to the Spirit of Elohím.
7. For I say to you, whosoever blasphemes the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven them; But, whoever blasphemes the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven them either in this age, or in the next, for they resist the Light of Elohím, by the false traditions of men.”
8. WHILE, he yet talked to the people, behold, his parents and his brethren and his sisters stood without, desiring to speak with him. Then one said to him, “Behold your father and your mother, and your brethren and your sisters stand without, desiring to speak with you.”
9. But he answered and said to him that told him, “Who is my father and who is my mother? and who are my brothers and my sisters?”
10. And he stretched forth his hand towards his disciples and said, “Behold, my father and my mother, my brothers and sisters, and my children! For whosoever shall do the will of my Parent who is in Heaven, the same is my father and my mother, my brother and my sister, my son and my daughter.
11. AND there were some Pharisees, who were covetous and proud of their riches, and he said to them, “Take heed to yourselves, and beware of covetousness, for a man’s life consists not in the abundance of things which he possesses.”
12. And he spoke a parable to them, saying, “The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully; and he thought within himself, saying, ‘What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?’
13. And he said, ‘This will I do: I will pull down my barns and build greater, and there I will bestow all my fruits and my goods.
14. And I will say to my soul, you have abundant goods laid up for many years, take your ease, drink and be merry.’
15. But Elohím said to him, ‘You fool, this night your life shall be required of you; Then, whose shall those things be, which you have provided?’
16. So are they that lay up treasures for themselves and are not rich in good works to them that need and are in want.”

Chapter 46

The Transfiguration on the Mount; The Giving of the Law of Mashíakh

1 AFTER six days, when the Festival of Sukkόth [Tabernacles] was at hand, Yahshúa took the Twelve [with Kepha, Ya’aqoḅ and Yoḥanan his brother, Matt. 17:1] and brought them apart up into a high mountain, and as he was praying the fashion of his countenance was changed, and he was transfigured before them, and his face did shine as the sun, and his garment was white as the light.
2 And, behold, there appeared to them Moshéh and Eliyáhu talking with him and spoke of the Toráh, and of his decease, which he should accomplish at Yerushaláyim.
3 And Moshéh spoke, saying, “This is he of whom I foretold, saying, ‘A prophet from the midst of your brethren like me, shall YHWH send to you’, and that which YHWH speaks to him, shall he speak to you, and to him shall ye hearken, and whosoever will not obey shall bring upon themselves their own destruction.
4 Then Kephá said to Yahshúa, “Rabban, it is good for us to be here; if you desire let us make here three Sukkáth [tabernacles]; one for you, and one for Moshéh, and one for Eliyáhu.”
5 While he yet spoke, behold a bright cloud overshadowed them, and twelve rays as of the sun issued from behind the cloud, and a voice came out of the cloud, which said, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.”
6 And when the Talmidím heard it, they fell on their faces and were much amazed, and Yahshúa came and touched them and said, “Arise and be not afraid.” And when they had lifted their eyes, they saw no man, except Yahshúa only. And the six glories were seen upon him.
7 AND Yahshúa said to them, “Behold a new law I give to you, which is not new but ancient. Even as Moshéh gave the Ten Sayings to Yisraél after the flesh, so also, I give to you, the Twelve Sayings, for the Kingdom of Yisraél [Yeshurun] after the spirit.
8 For, who is the Yisraél of Elohím? Even they of every nation and tribe who work righteousness, love mercy, and keep my commandments–these are the true Yisraél of Elohím.” And standing upon his feet, Yahshúa spoke, saying:
9 “Hear Yisraél, YHWH Elohéyḳa is One; Many are My seers and My prophets. In Me everything lives and moves and has subsistence.”

10 Ye will worship One: YHWH, the Father-Mother in the heavens of Whom are all things and revere the sacred Name.
11 Ye will revere your fathers and your mothers on earth, whose care is for you, and all the Teachers of Righteousness.
12 Ye will cherish and protect the weak, and those who are oppressed, and all creatures that suffer wrong.
13 Ye will work with your hands the things that are good and seemly; so ye will eat the fruits of the earth and live long in the earth.
14 Ye will purify yourselves daily and rest the Seventh Day from labour, keeping holy the Sabbaths and the Festival of your Elohím.
15 Do to others as ye desire that others should
do to you.
16 Ye will not take away the life of any creature for your pleasure, nor for your profit, nor yet torment it.
17 Ye will not steal the goods of anyone, nor gather lands and riches to yourselves, beyond your need or use.
18 Ye will not eat the flesh nor drink the blood of any slaughtered creature nor anything which brings disorder to your health or senses.
19 Ye will not make impure marriages where love and health are not, nor corrupt yourselves or any creature made pure by the Holy One.
20 Ye will not bear false witness against any nor willfully deceive any by a lie to hurt them.
21 Do not to others as ye desire that others should
not do to you.

22 And when the Talmidím heard these words, they smote upon their breasts, saying:
“Wherein we have offended, O Elohím forgive us: and may Your Wisdom, Love, and Truth within us, incline our hearts to love and keep this Holy Toráh.”

23 And Yahshúa said to them, “My yoke is equal and my burden light, if ye are willing to bear it,
to you it will be easy. Lay no other burden on those that enter into the kingdom,
but only these necessary things.

24 This is the New Law to the Yisraél of Elohím, and the Toráh is within, for it is the Toráh of Love, and it is not new but ancient. Take heed that ye add nothing to this Toráh, neither take anything from it. Truly I say to you, they who believe and obey this Toráh shall be liberated, and they who know and obey it not, shall be lost. 25 But as in Adam all die so in Mashíakh shall all be made alive. And the disobedient shall be purged through many fires; and they who persist shall descend and shall perish eternally.” 26 And as they came down from the mountain, Yahshúa charged them, saying, “Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man [Bar Enosh] is risen again from the dead.” 27 His Talmidím asked him, saying, “Why then do the Scribes say that Eliyáhu must first come? And Yahshúa answered and said to them, “Eliyáhu truly shall first come and restore all things. 28 But I say to you, that Eliyáhu is come already, and they knew him not, but have done to him whatsoever they desired. Likewise, shall also the Bar Enosh suffer of them. Then the Talmidím understood that he spoke to them of Yoḥanán ha’Matvíl (John the Baptist).

Chapter 47

The Spirit Gives Life; The Rich Man and the Beggar

1. AND when they were come down from the Mount, one of his disciples asked him, “Master, if a person does not keep all these mitzvóth shall he enter into Life?” And he said, “The Toráh is good in the letter and without the spirit is dead; But the spirit makes the letter alive.
2. Take ye heed that ye obey from the heart, and in the spirit of love, all the mitzvóth which I have given to you.
3. It has been written, ‘You shall not kill’ but I say to you, if any hate and desire to slay, they are guilty of the Toráh, yea, if they cause hurt or torture to any innocent creature, they are guilty. But if they kill to put an end to suffering which cannot be healed, they are not guilty, if they do it quickly and in love.
4. It has been said, ‘You shall not steal’ but I say to you, if any, not content with that which they have, desire and seek after that which is another’s or if they withhold that which is just from the worker, they have stolen in their heart already, and their guilt is greater than that of one who steals a loaf in necessity to satisfy his hunger.
5. Again ye have been told, ‘You shall not commit adultery’ but I say to you, if man or woman join together in marriage with unhealthy bodies and beget unhealthy offspring, they are guilty, even though they have not taken their neighbor’s spouse: and if any have not taken a woman who belongs to another, but desire in their heart and seek after her, they have committed adultery already in spirit.
6. And again I say to you, ‘If any desire and seek to possess the body of any creature for food, or for pleasure, or for profit, they defile themselves thereby.
7. Yea, and if a man tells the truth to his neighbor in such a way as to lead him into evil, even though it is true in the letter, he is guilty.
8. Walk ye in the spirit, and thus, ye shall fulfill the Toráh and be fit for the kingdom. Let the Toráh be within your own hearts rather than on tables of memorial, which things, nevertheless, ye ought to do and not to leave the other undone. For the Toráh, which I have given to you, is holy, just, and good, and blessed are all they who obey and walk therein.
9. Elohím is Spirit, and they who worship Elohím must worship in spirit and in truth, at all times and in all places.”
10. AND he spoke this parable to them who were rich, saying, “There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple, and fine linen, and rejoiced in luxury every day.
11. And there was a certain beggar named Elazar, which was laid at his gate, full of sores. And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table; Moreover, the dogs came and licked his sores.
12. And it happened, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Aḅraham’s bosom. The rich man also died and was buried with great pomp. And in Sheól, he lifted his eyes, being in torments, and sees Abraham afar off, and Elazar in his bosom.
13. And he cried and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Elazar that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue, for I am tormented in this place.’
14. But Aḅraham said, ‘Son, remember that you in your lifetime received your good things, and likewise Elazar bad things; But now, he is comforted, and you are tormented. And thus, are the changes of life for the perfecting of souls. And beside all this, between us and you there is a great chasm established, so that those that would pass from here to you cannot; Neither can they pass to us that would come from there, till their time be accomplished.’
15. Then he said, ‘I ask you therefore, Father, that you would send him to my father’s house, for I have five brothers, that he may testify to them, lest they also came into this place of torment.’
16. Abraham said to him, ‘They have Moshéh and the prophets. Let them hear them.’ And he said, ‘No, Father Abraham. But if one went to them from the dead, they would repent [reform].’
17. And Abraham said to him, ‘If they do not listen Moshéh and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.’

Chapter 48

Yahshúa Feeds One Thousand with Five Melons; Heals the Withered Hand on the Sabbath Day

1. AND it came to pass as Yahshúa had been teaching the multitudes, and they were hungry and weak by reason of the heat of the day that there passed by that way a woman on a camel laden with melons and other fruits.
2. And Yahshúa raised his voice and cried out, “O ye that thirst, seek ye the living water which comes from Heaven, for this is the water of life, of which, whoso drinks does not thirst again.”
3. And he took of the fruit, five melons and divided them among the people, and they ate, and their thirst was quenched, and he said to them, “If Elohím makes the sun to shine, and the water to fill out these fruits of the earth, will not the same be the Sun of your souls, and fill you with the water of life?
4. Seek ye the truth and let your souls be satisfied. The truth of Elohím is that water which comes from heaven, without money and without price, and they who drink shall be satisfied. And those whom he fed were one thousand men, women and children—and none of them went home hungry or thirsty; and many that had fever were healed.
5. At that time, Yahshúa went on the Shabbath day through the cornfields, and his disciples were hungry and began to pluck the ears of corn, and to eat.
6. But when the Pharisees saw it, they said to him, “Behold, your disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the Shabbath day.
7. And he said to them, “Have ye not read what Dawíd did, when he was hungry and they that were with him? How he entered into the house of Elohím and did eat the showbread, which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them which were with him, but only for the priests?
8. Or have yet not read in the Toráh, how that on the Shabbath days, the priests in the Miqdásh do work on the Shabbath and are blameless? But I say to you, that in this place is One greater than the Miqdásh.
9. But if ye had known what this means, ‘I will have mercy and not sacrifice’ ye would not have condemned the guiltless. For the Son of man [Bar Enosh] is Master – even of the Shabbath.”
10. AND when he was departed from there, he went into their Synagogue. And, behold, there was a man that had his hand withered. And they asked him, saying, “Is it lawful to heal on the Shabbath days?” – that they might accuse him.
11. And he said to them, “What man shall there be among you that shall have but one sheep, and if it falls into a pit on the Shabbath day, will he not lay hold on it and lift it out? And if ye give help to a sheep, shall ye not also give help to a man that needs?
12. Wherefore, it is lawful to do good on the Shabbath day.” Then said he to the man, “Stretch forth your hand.” And he stretched it forth, and it was restored whole, like as the other.
13. Then the Pharisees went out and held a council against him, how they might destroy him. But when Yahshúa knew it, he withdrew himself from thence. And great multitudes followed him, and he healed their sick and infirm and charged them that they should not make it known.
14. So it was fulfilled, which was spoken by Yeshayáhu the prophet, saying, “Behold my servant, whom I have chosen, my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased; I will put My Spirit upon him and he will show judgment to the Nations;
15. He shall not strive nor cry, neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets; A bruised reed he shall not break, and smoking flax he shall not quench till he sends forth judgment unto victory; And in his Name will the Nations trust.”

Chapter 49

The True Miqdash of Elohím

1. AND the Feast of the Passover was near. And it happened that some of the disciples, being masons, were set to repair one of the chambers of the Miqdásh. And Yahshúa was passing by, and they said to him, “Master, do you see these great buildings and what manner of stones are here, and how beautiful is the work of our ancestors?”
2. And Yahshúa said, “Yea, it is beautiful and well-wrought are the stones, but the time comes when not one stone shall be left on another, for the enemy shall overthrow both the City and the Miqdásh.
3. But the True Miqdásh is the body of man in which Elohím dwells by the Spirit, and when this Miqdásh is destroyed, in three days [and nights, {see 45:2}],40)Cf. 20:5; 31:7; 43:8; 44:14; 45:2; 51:2, 9; 64:8, 10; 72:5; 76:10; 83:10; 84:9; 88:6 Elohím raises up a more glorious Miqdásh, which the eye of the natural man perceives not.
4. Know ye not that ye are the Miqdashím of the Ruach ha’Qodesh? and whoever destroys one of these Miqdashím the same shall be himself destroyed?”
5. AND some or the Scribes, hearing him, sought to entangle him in his talk and said, “If you would put away the sacrifices of sheep and oxen and birds, to what purpose was this Miqdásh built for Elohím by Solomon, which has been now forty-six years in restoring?”
6. And Yahshúa answered and said, “It is written in the prophets, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations’ for the sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving. But ye have made it a house of slaughter and filled it with abominations.
7. Again it is written, ‘From the rising of the sun to the setting of the same, my Name shall be great among the Nations and incense with a pure offering shall be offered to me.’ But ye have made it a desolation with your offerings of blood and used the sweet incense only to cover the bad smell thereof. I am come not to destroy the Toráh but to fulfill it.
8. Know ye not what is written? ‘Obedience is better than sacrifice and to hearken is better than the fat of rams.’ ‘I, YHWH, am weary of your burnt offerings and vain oblations.’ ‘Your hands are full of blood.’
9. And is it not written, what is the true sacrifice? ‘Wash you and make you clean and put away the evil from before my eyes, cease to do evil, learn to do well. Do justice for the fatherless and the widow and all that are oppressed.’ So, doing, ye shall fulfill the Toráh.
10. The day comes when all that which is in the outer court, which pertains to blood offerings, shall be taken away and pure worshippers shall worship the Eternal One in purity and in truth!”
11. And they said, “Who are you that seeks to do away with the sacrifices, and despises the seed of Aḅraham? Have you learned this blasphemy from the Greeks and the Egyptians?”
12. And Yahshúa said, “Before Aḅraham was, I am he.” And they refused to listen, and some said, “He is inspired by a demon!” And others said, “He is mad!” And they went their way and told these things to the Priests and Elders. And they were angry, saying, “He has spoken blasphemy!”

Chapter 50

Mashíakh the Light of the World

1. THEN again, Yahshúa spoke to them, saying, ”I am the Light of the world. He that follows me shall not walk in darkness but shall have the light of life.”
2. The Pharisees therefore said to him, “You testify of yourself –your record is not true.”
3. Yahshúa answered and said to them, “Though I testify of myself, yet my record is true, for I know from where I came, and where I go; But ye cannot tell from where I come, and where I go.
4. Ye judge after the flesh – I judge no man. And yet if I judge, my judgment is true, for I am not alone, but I come from the Father-Mother [the Parent] who sent me.
5. It is also written in your Toráh, that the testimony of two men is true. I am one that testify of myself, Yoḥanan testified of me, and he is a prophet, and the Spirit of truth that sent me testifies of me.”
6. Then they said to him, “Where is your Father and your Mother?” Yahshúa answered, “Ye neither know me, nor my Parent. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father and my Mother also”.
7. And one said, “Show us the Father, show us the Mother, and we will believe you.” And he answered saying, “If you have seen your brother and felt his love, you have seen the Father. If you have seen your sister and felt her love, you have seen the Mother.
8. Far and near, the All Holy knows their own, yea, in each of you, the Fatherhood and the Motherhood may be seen, for the Father and the Mother are One in Elohím.
9. Yahshúa spoke these words in the treasury as he taught in the Miqdásh. And no man laid hands on him for his hour was not yet come. Then Yahshúa said to them again, “I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins. Where I go, ye cannot come.”
10. Then said the Judæans, “Will he kill himself?” because he said, “Where I go, ye cannot come.” And he said to them, “Ye are from beneath. I am from above. Ye are of this world. I am not of this world.
11. Therefore I said to you that ye shall die in your sins; For, if ye believe not that I am of Elohím, ye shall die in your sins.”
12. Then they said to him, “Who are you?” And Yahshúa said to them, “Even the same that I said to you from the beginning.
13. I have many things to say which shall judge you. But the Holy One that sent me is true. And I speak to the world those things which I have heard from above.”
14. Then Yahshúa said to them, “When ye have lifted up the Son of man [Bar Enosh], then ye shall know that I am sent of Elohím, and that I do nothing of myself; But, as the All Holy has taught me, I speak these things, the All Holy Who sent me is with me. The All Holy has not left me alone for I do always those things that please the Eternal One.
15. As he spoke these words, many believed on him, for they said, “He is a Prophet sent from Elohím. Him let us hear.”

Chapter 51

Section 6, Chapters 51 thru 60

The Truth Makes Free

1. THEN Yahshúa said to those Judæans that believed on him, “If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed. And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.”
2. They answered him, “We are Abraham’s seed and were never in bondage to any man. How can you say, ‘Ye shall be made free?’” Yahshúa answered them, “Truly, Truly, I say to you, Whosoever commits sin is the servant of sin. And the servant abides not in the house forever; But the Son and the Daughter abides evermore.
3. Therefore, if the Son shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. I know that ye are Abraham’s seed after the flesh but ye seek to kill me, because my word has no place in you.
4. I speak that which I have seen with my Parent and ye do that which ye have seen with your parent.” They answered and said to him, “Aḅraham is our father.” Yahshúa said to them, “If ye were Aḅraham’s children, ye would do the works of Aḅraham.
5. But now ye seek to kill me, a man that has told you the truth, which I have heard of Elohím: Abraham did not do this. Ye do the deeds of your father. Then they said to him, “We are not born of fornication; we have one Father, even Ĕloah.”
6. Yahshúa said to them, “If Elohím were your Parent, ye would love me for I proceeded forth and came from Elohím; neither came I of myself, but the All Holy sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? Even because ye cannot hear my word.
7. Ye are of your father the devil and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning and abode not in the truth because there is no truth in him.
8. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own. For he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye do not believe me.
9. As Moshéh raised the Serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son and Daughter of man be raised, that whosoever gazes, believing, should not perish, but have everlasting life.
10. Which of you convicts me of sin? And if I say, the truth, why do ye not believe me? He that is of Elohím hears the words of Elohím: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of Elohím.”
11. Then answered the Judæans and said to him, “Say we not well that you are a Samaritan and have a demon?” Yahshúa answered, “I have not a demon but I honour the All Holy, and ye do dishonor me. And I seek not my own glory but the glory of Elohím. But there is One who judges.”
12. And certain of the Elders and Scribes from the Miqdásh came to him saying, “Why do your disciples teach men that it is unlawful to eat the flesh of animals though they be offered in sacrifice as ordained by Moshéh.
13. For it is written, Elohím said to Noah, ‘The fear and the dread of you shall be upon every animal of the field, and every bird of the air, and every fish of the sea, into your hand they are delivered.’
14. And Yahshúa said to them, “Ye hypocrites, well did Yeshayáhw speak of you and your forefathers saying, ‘This people approaches close to Me with their mouths and honors me with their lips but their heart is far from me. For in vain do they worship Me, believing and teaching for divine doctrines, the commandments of men in my name but to satisfy their own lusts.’
15. As also Yirmeyáhw testifies when he says concerning blood offerings and sacrifices, ‘I, YHWH, Elohím, commanded none of these things in the day that ye came out of Egypt, but only this I commanded you to do righteousness, walk in the ancient paths, do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with your Elohím.’
16. But ye did not hearken to Me’ Who in the beginning gave you all manner of seed and fruit of the trees and seed having been for the food and healing of man and animal.” And they said, “You speak against the Toráh.”
17. And he said, “In truth, against Moshéh I do not speak nor against the Toráh but against those who corrupted his Toráh, which he permitted for the hardness of your hearts.
18. But, behold, a greater one than Moshéh is here!” And they were angry and took up stones to cast at him. And Yahshúa passed through their midst and was hidden from their violence.

Chapter 52

He Declares His Pre-incarnate Existence

1. ANOTHER time Yahshúa said, “Truly, Truly, I say to you, if a man keeps my saying, he shall never see death.” Then the Judæans said to him, “Now we know that you have a demon.
2. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and you say, ‘If a man keep my sayings, he shall never taste of death.’ Are you greater than our father Aḅraham, who is dead? and the Prophets are dead? Whom do you make yourself?”
3. Yahshúa answered, “If I honor myself, my honour is nothing. It is my Father that honors me; Of whom, ye say that he is your ĔL. Yet ye have not known Him; But I know Him, and if I should say, ‘I know him not’, I shall be a liar like as you. But I know the All Holy and am known of the Eternal.
4. Your father Aḅraham rejoiced to see my day; And, he saw it and was glad.” Then the Judæans said to him, “You are not yet forty-five years old, and have you seen Abraham?”
5. Yahshúa said to them, “Truly, Truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am he.”
6. And he said to them, “The All Holy has sent you many prophets but ye rose against those that were contrary to your lusts, reviling some and slaying others.”
7. Then took they up stones to cast at him; But Yahshúa was hidden, and went out of the Miqdásh, through the midst of them, and so again passed unseen by them.
8. Again when his disciples were with him in a place apart, one of them asked him concerning the kingdom, and he said to them:
9. “As it is above so it is below. As it is within, so it is without. As on the right hand, so on the left. As it is before, so it is behind. As with the great, so with the small. As with the male, so with the female. When these things shall be seen then ye shall see the kingdom of Elohím.
10. For in me there is neither Male nor Female; But both are One in the All Perfect. The woman is not without the man nor is the man without the woman.
11. Wisdom is not without love nor is love without wisdom. The head is not without the heart nor is the heart without the head in the Mashíakh, who atones all things. For Elohím has made all things by number, by weight, and by measure, corresponding, the one with the other.
12. These things are for those that understand to believe. If they do not understand, they are not for them. For to believe is to understand and not to believe is not to understand.

Chapter 53

Yahshúa Heals the Blind on the Shabbath

1. AND at another time as Yahshúa passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth. And his disciples asked him, saying, “Master, who did sin? this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?”
2. Yahshúa answered, “To what purport is it, whether this man sinned, or his parents, so that the works of Elohím are made manifest in him? I must work the works of my Parent who sent me, while it is day. The night comes when no man can work. While I am in the world, I am the Light of the world.”
3. When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and mingled clay with the spittle and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay and said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam (this means by interpretation, Sent).” He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
4. Therefore, the neighbors and those who had seen him previously, that he was blind, said, “Is this not  him that sat and begged?” Some said, “This is he.” Others said, “He is like him.” But he said, “I am he.”
5. Therefore they said to him, “How were your eyes opened?” He answered and said, “A man that is called Yahshúa made clay and anointed my eyes, and said to me, ‘Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash.’ And I went and washed, and I received sight.”
6. Then said they to him, “Where is he?” He said, “I do not know where he is, that made me whole.”
7. Then certain ones of the Sadducees came to him, who deny that there is a resurrection, and they asked him saying, “Master, Moshéh wrote to us, ‘If any man’s brother dies having a wife and leaving no children, that his brother should take his wife and raise up seed to his brother.
8. Now there were six brethren, and the first took a wife and he died childless: And the second took her to wife and he died childless: And the third, even to the sixth, and they died also leaving no children. Last of all, the woman died also.
9. Now in the resurrection, whose of them is she, for the six had her to wife.”
10 And Yahshúa answered them saying, “Whether a woman with six husbands or a man with six wives, the case is the same. For the children of this world marry and are given in marriage.
11. But they, which being worthy, attain to the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage, neither can they die any more, for they are equal to the angels and are the children of Elohím, being the children of the resurrection.
12. Now that the dead are raised, even Moshéh showed at the bush, when he called YHWH, the Elohím of Aḅraham, Yitsḥaq and Ya’acoḅ, for he is not the ĔL of the dead but of the living, for all live to Him.

Chapter 54

The Examination of Him Who was Born Blind

1. THEN they brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind. And it was the Shabbath day when Yahshúa made the clay and opened his eyes.
2. Then again, the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said to them, “He put clay upon my eyes, and I washed, and do see.”
3. Therefore, some of the Pharisees said, “This man is not of Elohím because he does not keep the Shabbath day.” Others said, “How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles?” And there was a division among them.
4. They say to the blind man again, “What do you say of him, that he has opened your eyes?” He said, “He is a prophet.”
5. But the Judæans did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind and received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his sight.
6. And they asked them, saying, “Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? How then does he now see?” His parents answered them and said, “We know that this is our son and that he was born blind; But, by what means he now sees we do not know; Nor who has opened his eyes. He is of age; ask him, he shall speak for himself.”
7. These words spoke his parents, because they feared the Judæans, for the Judæans had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was the Mashíakh, he should be put out of the Synagogue. Therefore, his parents said, “He is of age? ask him.”
8. Then again they called the man that was blind and said to him, “Give Elohím the praise. We know that this man is a sinner.” He answered and said, “Whether he is a sinner or not, I do not know. One thing I do know, that whereas I was blind, now I see.”
9. Then said they to him again, “What did he to you? How did he open your eyes?” He answered them, “I have told you already, and ye did not listen. Why do ye desire to hear it again? Will ye also be his disciples?”
10. Then they reviled him, and said, “You are his disciple; But we are disciples of Moshéh. We know that Elohím spoke to Moshéh. As for this fellow, we know not from where he is.”
11. The man answered and said to them, “Why, herein is a marvelous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he has opened my eyes. Now we know that Elohím hears not sinners.
12. But if any man is a worshipper of Elohím, and does His will, him He hears. Since the world began, it was not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind. If this man were not of Elohím, he could do nothing.”
13. They answered and said to him, “You were altogether born in sins and do you teach us?” And they cast him out.
14. Yahshúa heard that they had cast him out, and when he had found him, he said to him, “Do you believe on the Son of Elohím? He answered and said, “Who is he, Master, that I might believe on him.”
15. And Yahshúa said to him, “You have both seen him, and it is he that talks with you.” And he said, “Master, I believe.” And he bowed to him.
16. And Yahshúa said, “For judgment I am come into this world, that they which do not see might see; and that they which see might be made blind. And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said to him, “Are we blind also?”
17. AND Yahshúa, when he came to a certain place where seven palm trees grew, gathered his disciples around him, and to each he gave a number and a name which only he knew who received it. And he said to them, “Stand ye as pillars in the House of Elohím and show forth the order according to your numbers which ye have received.”
18. And they stood around him, and they made a body four square, and they counted the number, and could not. And they said to him, “Master, we cannot.” And Yahshúa said, “Let him who is greatest among you be even as the least, and the symbol of that which is first be as the symbol of that which is last.”
19. And they did so, and in every way was there equality, and yet each bore a different number and the one side was as the other and the upper was as the lower, and the inner as the outer. And the Master said, “It is enough. Such is the House of the wise Master Builder. Foursquare it is, and perfect. Many are the rooms, but the House is One.
20. Again, consider the Body of man, which is a Miqdásh of the Spirit. For the body is one, united to its head, which with it is one body. And it has many members, yet, all are one body and the one Spirit rules and works in all; so also, in the kingdom.
21. And the head does not say to the bosom, ‘I have no need of you’ nor the right hand to the left, ‘I have no need of you’ nor the left foot to the right, ‘I have no need of you’, neither the eyes to the ears, ‘We have no need of you’, nor the mouth to the nose, ‘I have no need for you’. For Elohím has set in the one body every member as is fitting.
22. If the whole were the head, where were the breasts? If the whole were the belly, where were the feet? Yea, those members which some affirm are less honourable, upon them has Elohím bestowed the more honour.
23. And those parts which some call unbecoming, upon those has been bestowed more abundant beauty, that they may care one for the other. So, if one member suffers, all members suffer with it, and if one member is honoured all members rejoice.
24. Now ye are my Body and each one of you is a member in particular, and to each one of you do I give the fitting place, and one Head over all, and one Heart the center of all, that there be no lack nor schism, that so with your bodies, your souls and your spirits ye may glorify the All Parent through the Divine Spirit which works in all and through all.”

Chapter 55

Mashíakh The Good Shepherd; One With the Father

1. AT that time there passed by the way a shepherd leading his flock to the fold. And Yahshúa took up one of the young lambs in his arms and talked to it lovingly and pressed it to his bosom. And he spoke to his disciples, saying:
2. “I am the good shepherd and know my sheep and am known of mine. As the Parent of all knows me, even so know I my sheep, and lay down my life for the sheep. And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold; Those also must I bring, and they shall hear my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd.
3. I lay down my life, that I may take it again. No man takes it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay my body down and I have power to take it up again.
4. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd feeds his flock, he gathers his lambs in his arms and carries them in his bosom and gently leads those that are with young, yea the good shepherd gives his life for the sheep.
5. But he that is a hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees, and the wolf catches them and scatters the sheep. The hireling flees because he is a hireling and cares not for the sheep.
6. I am the door; By me, all who enter shall be safe and shall go in and out and find pasture. The evil one comes not but for to steal and to kill and destroy. I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
7. He that enters in by the door, is the shepherd of the sheep, to whom the porter opens, and the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his sheep by name, and leads them out, and he knows the number.
8. And when he puts forth his sheep he goes before them and the sheep follow him, for, they know his voice. And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him, for they know not the voice of strangers.”
9. This parable Yahshúa spoke to them, but they did not understand what things they were which he spoke to them. Then Yahshúa said to them again, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me, and I give to them eternal life and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
10. My Parent, who gave them to me, is greater than all and no man is able to pluck them out of my Parent’s hand. I and my Parent are one.”
11. Then the Judæans took up stones again to stone him. Yahshúa answered them, “Many good works have I showed you from my Parent, for which of those works do ye stone me?”
12. The Judæans answered him, saying, “For a good work we do not stone you, but for blasphemy, because that you being a man makes yourself equal with Elohím.” Yahshúa answered them, “Did I say that I was equal to Elohím? No, but I am one with Elohím. Is it not written in the Scripture, ‘I said, Ye are Elohím’?
13. If he called them ‘Elohím’ to whom the word of Elohím came, and the Scripture cannot be broken, do ye say of him, whom the Parent of all has sanctified and sent into the world, ‘You do blaspheme’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of Elohím’ and therefore, ‘One’ with the All Parent?
14. If I do not the works of my Parent, believe me not; But if I do, though ye do not believe me, believe the works, that ye may know and believe that the Spirit of the great Parent is in me, and I in my Parent.”
15. Therefore, they sought again to take him, but he escaped out of their hands and went away again beyond Jordan, into the place where Yoḥanan at first baptized and there he stayed.
16. And many resorted to him, and said, “Yoḥanan, indeed did no miracle, he is the Prophet that should come.” And many believed on him.

Chapter 56

The Raising of Lazarus

1. Now a certain man was sick, named Elazar of Bethany, the town of Miriám and her sister Martha. (It was that Miriám who anointed the Master with ointment and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Elazar was sick).
2. Therefore, his sisters sent to him saying, “Master, behold he whom you love is sick!” When Yahshúa heard that, he said, “This sickness is not to death, but that the glory of Elohím might be manifest in him.” Now Yahshúa loved Miriám and her sister and Elazar.
3. When he heard that he was sick, he stayed two days still in the same place where he was. Then after that, he said to his disciples, “Let us go into Judæa again.”
4. His disciples said to him, “Master, the Judæans recently sought to stone you, and do you go there again?” Yahshúa answered, “Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walks in the day he stumbles not, because he sees the light of this world.
5. But if a man walks in the night, he stumbles, because there is no light in him.” These things said he, and after that he said to them, “Our friend Elazar sleeps, but I go that I may awake him out of sleep.”
6. Then his disciples said, “Master, if he sleeps, he shall do well. And a messenger came to him saying, “Elazar is dead.”
7. Now when Yahshúa came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already (Bethany was near to Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off). And many of the Judæans came to Martha and Miriám to comfort them concerning their brother.
8. Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Yahshúa was coming, went and met him, but Miriám sat still in the house. Then Martha said to Yahshúa, “Master, if you had been here my brother would not have died. But I know that even now, whatsoever you will ask of Elohím, Elohím will give it to you.”
9. Yahshúa said to her, “Your brother sleeps, and he shall rise again.” Martha said to him, “I know that he shall rise again, at the resurrection at the last day.”
10. Yahshúa said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life, he that believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, and whosoever lives and believes in me shall never die.”
11. She said to him, “Yes, Master. I believe that you are the Mashíakh, the Son of Elohím, which should come into the world. And when she had so said, she went her way and secretly called Miriám her sister saying, “The Master is come and calls for you.” As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly and came unto him.
12. Now Yahshúa was not yet come into the town but was in that place where Martha met him. Then the Judæans that were with her in the house and comforted her, when they saw Miriám that she arose up hastily and went out, followed her saying, “She goes to the grave to weep there.”
13. Then, when Miriám was come to where Yahshúa was and saw him, she fell at his feet, saying to him, “Master, if you had been here my brother would not have died.” When Yahshúa therefore saw her weeping and the Judæans that came with her also weeping, he groaned in the spirit and was troubled, and said, “Where have ye laid him?” They said to him, “Master, come and see.” And Yahshúa wept. 14. Then the Judæans said, “Behold, how he loved him!” And some of them said, “Could not this man which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?” Yahshúa therefore groaning again in himself (for he feared that he might be already dead41)Irretrievably dead, being that four days was considered the length of time that the soul can normally linger in its connection to and around the body. See verse 18. ) comes to the grave. It was a cave and a stone lay upon it.
15. Yahshúa said, “Take ye away the stone.” Martha, the sister of him supposed to be dead, said to him, “Master by this time he stinks, for he has been dead four days!” Yahshúa said to her, “Did I not say to you, that if you would believe you should see the glory of Elohím?” Then they took away the stone from the place where Elazar was laid.
16. And Yahshúa lifted up his eyes and chanting, invoked the great Name, and said, “My Parent, I thank You that You have heard me. And I know that You always hear me, but because of the people which stand by I call upon You that they may believe that You have sent me.” And when he had thus spoken, he cried with a loud voice, “Elazar come forth.”
17. And he that was as dead came forth bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was bound about with a napkin.
18. Yahshúa said to them, “Loose him and let him go.” When the thread of life is cut indeed, it comes not again, but when it is whole there is hope. Then many of the Judæans that came to Miriám and had seen the things which Yahshúa did, believed on him.

Chapter 57

Concerning little Children; The Forgiveness of Those Who Trespass; Parable of the Fishes

1. AT the same time the disciples came to Yahshúa, saying, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven?” And Yahshúa called a little child to him and set him in the midst of them and said, “Truly I say to you, unless ye be converted and become innocent and teachable as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of Heaven.
2. Therefore, whosoever shall humble himself as this little child, the same is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven. And whosoever shall receive one such little child in my name receives me.
3. Woe to the world because of offenses! For, it is necessary that offences come, but woe to that man by whom the offense comes. Wherefore, if you desire, or your pleasures do offend others, cut them off and cast them from you. It is better for you to enter into life without, rather than having that which will be cast into everlasting fire.
4. Take heed that ye not neglect one of these little ones; For I say to you, that in heaven their angels do always behold the Face of Elohím. For the Son of man [Bar Enosh] is come to save that which was lost.
5. How do ye think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them is gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine and go into the mountains and seek that which is gone astray? And if it is that he finds it, truly I say to you, he rejoices more over that sheep than over the ninety-nine which went not astray.
6. Even so, it is not the will of your Parent, Who is in heaven, that one of these little one should perish.”
7. AND there were certain men of doubtful mind, came to Yahshúa, and said to him: “You tell us that our life and being is from Elohím, but we have never seen Elohím, nor do we know of any Elohím. Can you show us whom you call the Father-Mother, one Elohím? We do not know if there is an Elohím.”
8. Yahshúa answered them, saying, “Hear ye this parable of the fishes. The fishes of a certain river communed with one another, saying, ‘They tell us that our life and being is from water, but we have never seen water, we know not what water is.’ Then some among them, wiser than the rest, said: ‘We have heard there dwells in the sea a wise and learned Fish, who knows all things. Let us journey to him and ask him to show us what water is.’
9. So several of them set out to find this great and wise Fish and they came at last to the sea wherein the wise Fish dwelt, and they asked of him.
10. And when he heard them, he said to them, ‘O ye foolish fish that consider not! Wise are ye, the few, who seek. In the water ye live, and move, and have your being; from the water ye came, to the water ye return. Ye live in the water, yet ye know it not. In like manner, ye live in Elohím, and yet ye ask of me, ‘Show us Elohím.’ Elohím is in all things, and all things are in Elohím.
11. AGAIN Yahshúa said to them, “If your brother or sister shall trespass against you, go and declare the fault between you and your brother or sister alone. If they shall hear you, you have gained them. But if they will not hear you, then take with you one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.
12. And if they shall neglect to hear them, tell it to the Assembly, but if they neglect to hear them, tell it to the Assembly, but if they neglect to hear the Assembly, let them be to you as those that are outside the Assembly. Truly I say to you, Whatsoever ye shall justly bind on earth, shall be bound in heaven, and whatsoever ye shall justly loose in earth, shall be loosed in heaven.
13. Again I say to you, That if seven, or even if three of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they ask, it shall be done for them of my Father-Mother Who is in heaven. For where even three are gathered together in my name there I am in the midst of them, and if there be but one, I am in the heart of that one.”
14. THEN came Kepha to him and said, Master, how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? till seven times? Yahshúa said to him, “I say not to you, until seven times, but until seventy times seven. For in the Prophets likewise unrighteousness was found, even after they were anointed by the Ruach ha’Qodesh [the Sacred Spiritess].”
15. And he spoke this parable, saying, “There was a certain king who would take account of his servants, and when he had begun to reckon, one was brought to him which owed him ten thousand talents. But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his master commanded him to be sold, and his wife and children and all that he had, and payment to be made.
16. The servant therefore, fell down and worshipped him, saying, ‘Master, have patience with me and I will pay you all.’ Then the master of that servant was moved with compassion and loosed him and forgave him his debt.
17. But the same servant went out and found one of his fellow-servants which owed him a hundred dinars, and he laid hands on him and took him by the throat, saying, ‘Pay me what you owe’.
18. And his fellow-servant fell down at his feet and besought him, saying, ‘Have patience with me and I will pay you all’. And he would not but went and threw him into prison till he should pay the debt.
19. So, when his fellow-servants saw what he had done, they were deeply sorry and came and told to their master all that was done.
20. Then his master, after he had called him, said to him, ‘O you wicked servant, I forgave you all that debt because you desired me; should you not also have had compassion on thy fellow-servant, even as I had pity on you.’ And his master was angry, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due to him.
21. So likewise shall the heavenly Parent judge you, if ye from your hearts do not forgive each one, his brother or sister, their trespasses. Nevertheless, let every man see that he pays that which he owes, for Elohím loves the just.

Chapter 58

Divine Love to The Repentant

1. Yahshúa said to the disciples and to the multitude around them, Who is the son of Elohím? Who is the daughter of Elohím? Even the company of those who turn from all evil and do righteousness, love mercy and walk reverently with their Elohím. These are the sons and the daughters of man who come up out of Egypt, to whom it is given that they should be called the sons and the daughters of Elohím.
2. And they are gathered from all tribes and nations and peoples and tongues, and they come from the East and the West and the North and the South, and they dwell on Mount Tzión, and they eat bread and they drink of the fruit of the vine at the table of Tzión, and they see Elohím face to face.
3. Then drew near to him all the tax collectors and sinners for to hear him. And the Pharisees and Scribes murmured, saying, “This man receives sinners and eats with them.”
4. AND he spoke this parable to them, saying, “What man of you having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he finds it? And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing.
5. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, “Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost. I say to you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repents, more than over ninety and nine just persons which need no repentance.
6. Either, what woman, having ten pieces of silver, if she loses one piece does not light a candle and seek diligently until she finds it? And when she has found it, she calls her friends and her neighbors together, saying, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found the piece of silver which I had lost’. Likewise, I say to you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of Elohím over one sinner that repents.”
7. AND he also spoke this parable: “A certain man had two sons, and the younger of them said to his parents, ‘Give me the portion of goods that falls to me’. And they divided to him their living. And not many days after the younger son gathered all together and took his journey into a fair country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.
8. And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land, and he began to be in want. And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed swine. And he longed to fill his body with the pods that the swine ate, and no one gave to him.
9. And when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! I will arise and go to my father and mother and will say to them: my father and my mother, I have sinned against Heaven and before you, and am no more worthy to be called your son, make me as one of your hired servants.’
10. And he arose and came to his parents. But when he was a great way off, his mother and his father saw him and had compassion and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him. And the son said to them, ‘My father and my mother, I have sinned against Heaven and in your sight, and am no more worthy to be called your son.’
11. But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and shoes on his feet, and bring here the best ripe fruits, and the bread and the oil and the wine, and let us eat and be merry; for this, my son, was dead and is alive again, he was lost and is found.’ And they began to be merry.
12. Now his elder son was in the field, and as he came and drew near to the house, he heard music and dancing. And he called one of the servants and asked what these things meant. And he said to him, “Your brother who was lost is come back, and your father and your mother have prepared the bread and the oil and the wine and the best ripe fruits, because they have received him safe and sound.”
13. And he was angry and would not go in. Therefore, his father came out and implored him. And he, answering, said to his father, ‘Behold, these many years have I served you, neither did I transgress at any time your commandments, and yet you never gave me such a significant feast that I might make merry with my friends.
14. But as soon as this, your son, is come, which has devoured your living with harlots, you prepared for him a feast of the best that you have.’
15. And his father said to him, son, you are ever with me, and all that I have is yours. It was proper, therefore, that we should be merry and be glad, for this your brother was dead and is alive again and was lost and is found.”

Chapter 59

Yahshúa Forewarns His Disciples; He Finds Zaccheus

1. AND Yahshúa went up into a mountain and there he sat with his disciples and taught them, and he said to them, “Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
2. Sell that ye have and do that which is good, for those which have not; provide yourselves bags which do not grow old, a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches, neither moth corrupts. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
3. Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning, and ye yourselves likened to men that wait for their master, when he will return from the wedding that when he comes and knocks they may open to him immediately.
4. Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, shall find watching; Truly I say to you, that he shall gird himself and make them to sit down at his table, and will come forth and serve them.
5. And if he shall come in the second watch or come in the third watch and find them so, blessed rare those servants.
6. And this know, that the guardian of the house not knowing what hour the thief would come, would have watched and not have suffered his house to have been broken through. Be ye therefore ready also, for the Son of man comes at an hour when ye do not expect.
7. Then Kepha said unto him, “Master, do you speak this parable to us, or even to all?” And the Master said, “Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his master shall make ruler over his household, to give them who serve their portion in due season?
8. Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he comes, shall find so doing. Of a truth I say to you, that he will make him ruler over all that he has.
9. But and if that servant say in his heart, ‘My master delays his coming and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidservants and to eat and drink and to be drunken, the master of that servant will come in a day when he looked not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware and will appoint him his portion with the unfaithful.
10. And that servant which knew his master’s will and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For to whomsoever much is given, of him shall they require the less.
11. For they who know the Elohúth and have found in the way of Life the mysteries of light and then have fallen into sin, shall be punished with greater chastisements than they who have not known the way of Life.
12. Such shall return when their cycle is completed and to those will be given space to consider, and amend their lives, and learning the mysteries, enter into the kingdom of light.
13. AND Yahshúa entered and passed through Jericho. And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the collectors of tribute, and he was rich.
14. And he sought to see Yahshúa and who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature. And he ran before and climbed up into a Sycamore tree to see him since he was to pass-by that way.
15. And when Yahshúa came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said to him, “Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for today I must abide at your house.” And he made haste and came down and received him joyfully.
16. And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying that he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner.
17. And Zachaeus stood, and said to the Master, “Behold, Master, the half of my goods I give to the poor; And, if I have taken anything from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold.”
18. And Yahshúa said to him, “This day is salvation come to your house, forasmuch as you are a just man, you also are a son of Aḅraham. For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which ye deem to be lost.”

Chapter 60

Yahshúa Rebuked Hypocrisy

1. THEN, Yahshúa spoke to the crowd, and to his disciples, saying, “The Scribes and the Pharisees sat down upon in the Seat of Moshéh. All, then from Mosheh, as much as they42)Given the Y’Shua’s words elsewhere concerning them, this directive is odd. It is to be noted, that there are manuscripts that read “he” (speaking of Mosheh) rather than “they” (the Scribes and Pharisees). should say to you to guard, that guard and practice. But ye, do not practice according to their hypocritical works, for they talk Moshéh and do not practice Moshéh. Yes, they bind heavy burdens and matters grievous to be borne and lay them on men’s shoulders; But, they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.
2. Moreover, all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries and enlarge the borders of their garments, and love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, ‘Rabbi, Rabbi’.
3. But ye, do not desire to be called Rabbi: for one is your Rabbi, even Mashíakh; and all ye are brethren. And call not any one father on earth, for on earth are fathers in the flesh only; but in Heaven there is One Who is your Father and your Mother, Who has the Spirit of truth, Whom the world cannot receive.
4. Neither desire ye to be called masters, for one is your Master, even Mashíakh. But they that are greatest among you shall be your servants/ministers. And whosoever shall exalt themselves shall be abased; and they that are humble in themselves shall be exalted.
5. Woe to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of Heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves neither permit ye them that are entering, to go in. 6. Woe to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense make long prayer; Therefore, ye shall receive the greater judgment.
7. Woe to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte; and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.
8. Woe to you, ye blind guides, who say, ‘Whosoever shall swear by the Miqdásh, it is nothing, but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the Temple, he is a debtor!’ Ye fools and blind; for which is greater, the gold, or the Miqdásh that sanctifies the gold?
9. And, ‘Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever swears by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty.’ Ye fools and blind: for which is greater, the gift, or the altar, that sanctifies the gift?
10. Whosoever therefore shall swear by the altar, swears by it, and by all things thereon. And whosoever shall swear by the Miqdásh, swears by it, and by Him that dwells therein. And he that shall swear by Heaven swears by the Throne of Elohím, and by the Holy One that sits thereon.
11. Woe to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and dill and cumin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the Toráh, judgment, compassion, and faithfulness: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. Ye blind guides! for ye strain out a gnat and swallow a camel.
12. Woe to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. You blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, then the outside of them that they may be clean also.
13. Woe to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are likened to whited sepulchers, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of the bones of the dead and of all uncleanness. Even so, ye also outwardly appear righteous to men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and make believe.
14. Woe to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchers of the righteous, and say, ‘If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.’
15. Wherefore, ye are witness to yourselves that ye do as the children of them which killed the prophets. Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.
16. Wherefore said holy Wisdom, ‘Behold I send to you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues and persecute them from city to city. And upon you shall come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zakharyáh son of Barakhyáh, who was slain between the Miqdásh and the Altar. Truly I say to you, all these things shall come upon this generation.” 17. O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you that kills the prophets, and stones them which are sent to you, how often would I have gathered your children together, even as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! 18. Behold, now your house is left to you desolate. For I say to you, ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, ‘Holy, Holy, Holy, Blessed are they who come in the Name of the Righteous One.’

Section 7, Chapters 61 thru 70

Yahshúa Foretells the End of the Cycle

1. AND as Yahshúa sat upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, “Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of your coming, and of the end of the age/era?” And Yahshúa answered and said to them, “Take heed that no man deceives you. For many shall come in my name, saying, ‘I am Mashíakh’ and shall deceive many.
2. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars; see that ye be not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end [of the age/era] is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.
3. (And in those days [following the end of this generation which ends this age, the sorrows will continue, for] those that have power shall gather to themselves the lands and riches of the earth for their own lusts, and shall oppress the many who lack and hold them in bondage, and use them to increase their riches, and they shall oppress even the animals of the field, setting up the abominable thing. But Elohím shall send them his messenger and they shall proclaim his laws; which men have hidden by their traditions and those that transgress shall die.)
4. Then [after hearing of wars and rumours of war] they shall deliver you up to be afflicted and shall kill you; and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise and shall deceive many.
5. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall grow cold. But he that shall endure to the end [of this generation], the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness [testimony] to all nations; and then shall the end [of the present age/era] come.
6. When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso reads, let him understand) then let them which are in Judæa flee to the mountains. Let them which are on the housetop not come down to take anything out of the house; neither let them who are in the field return to take their clothes.
7. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the Shabbath day; for there shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days be shortened, there should no flesh be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened [curtailed].
8. Then if any man shall say to you, ‘Lo, here is Anointed’ or ‘there’ – haste not to believe. For there shall arise false anointed ones, and false prophets, who shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before.
9. Wherefore, if they shall say to you, ‘Behold, he is in the desert’, go not forth. ‘Behold, he is in the secret chambers’ – haste not to believe. For as the lightening comes out of the east, and shines even to the west, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
10. Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from Heaven, and the powers of the Heavens shall be shaken.
11. And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in Heaven; and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of Heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound as of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of Heaven to the other.
12. Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When its branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, ye know that summer is near. So likewise, ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Truly I say to you, this generation shall not pass till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
13. But of that day and hour knows no man, no, not the angels of Heaven, but the All Parent only. For as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
14. For as in the days that were before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noaḥ entered into the ark and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall the coming of the Son of man be also
15. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Master doth come.
16. But know this, that if the guardian of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore, be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not, the Son of man comes.
17. Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master has made ruler over his household, to give them food in due season?
18. Blessed be that servant, whom his master when he comes shall find so doing. Truly I say to you that he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
19. But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My master delays his coming, and shall begin to smite his fellow servants, and to eat with the glutton, and drink with the drunken.
20. The master of that servant shall come in a day when he looks not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of. And shall appoint him his portion with the hypocrites in the outer darkness with the cruel, and them that have no love, no pity: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

Chapter 62 

The Parable of The Ten Virgins

1. “THEN shall the kingdom of Heaven be likened to ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
2. They that were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
3. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a great cry made, ‘Behold, the bridegroom comes; go ye out to meet him’. Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps.
4. And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out’. But the wise answered, saying, ‘Not so, lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
5. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
6. Afterwards, the other virgins came also saying, ‘Master, Master, open to us’. But he answered and said, Truly I say to you, I know you not’.
7. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man comes. Keep your lamps burning.”

Chapter 63

Parable of The Talents

1. He also said: “The kingdom of Heaven is as a man traveling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and immediately took his journey.
2. Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same and made them other five talents. And likewise, he that had received two, he also gained other two. But he that had received one went and dug in the earth and hid his master’s money.
3. After a long time, the master of those servants comes, and reckons with them. And so, he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, ‘Master, you delivered unto me five talents; behold, I have gained beside them five talents more’. His master said to him, ‘Well done, you good and faithful servant: you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things; enter you into the joy of thy master’.
4. He also that had received two talents came and said, ‘Master, you delivered to me two talents; behold, I have gained two other talents beside them. His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things; enter you into the joy of thy master’.
5. Then he which had received the one talent came and said, ‘Master, I knew you that you are a hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not strawed. And I was afraid and went and hid your talent in the earth; lo, there you have what is yours’.
6. His master answered and said to him, ‘You wicked and slothful servant, do you tell me that I reap where I did not sow, and gather where I have not strawed? You should have therefore, to have put your talents to use, with profit, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.
7. Take therefore the talent from him and give it to him who has two talents. For to everyone that has improved shall be given, and he shall have abundance, but from him that has not improved, shall be taken away, even that which he has. And cast yet out the unprofitable servant into outer darkness, for that is the portion he has chosen’.
8. Yahshúa also said unto his disciples, ‘Be ye approved money-changers of the kingdom, rejecting the bad and the false, and retaining the good and the true’.
9. AND Yahshúa sat over against the Treasury and beheld how the people cast money into the Treasury.
10. And there came a certain poor widow and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.
11. And He called His disciples to him and said, ‘Truly I say to you, that this poor widow has cast more in than all they which have cast into the Treasure.
12. For all they did cast in of their abundance, but she of her poverty did cast in all that she had, even all her living.’”

Chapter 64

Yahshúa Teaches in the Palm Circle

1. YAHSHÚA came to a certain fountain near Bethany, around which grew twelve palm trees, where he often went with his disciples to teach them of the mysteries of the kingdom, and there he sat beneath the shade of the trees and his disciples with him.
2. And one of them said, “Master, it is written of old, ‘The Elohím made man in their own image, male and female created they them’. How do you say then that Elohím is one’? And Yahshúa said to them, “Truly, I said to you, in Elohím there is neither male nor female and yet both are one, and Elohím is the Two in One. He is She and She is He. The Elohím – our Elohím – is perfect, infinite, and one.
3. As in the man, the Father is manifest, and the Mother hidden; so, in the woman, the Mother is manifest, and the Father hidden. Therefore, shall the name of the Father and the Mother be equally sanctified, for they are the great Powers of Elohím, and the one is not without the other, in the One Elohím.
4. Adore ye Elohím, above you, beneath you, on the right hand, on the left hand, before you, behind you, within you, around you. Truly, there is but One Elohím, Who is All in All, and in whom all things do consist, the Fount of all Life and all Substance, without beginning and without end.
5. The things which are seen and pass away are the manifestations of the unseen which are eternal, that from the visible things of nature ye may reach to the invisible things of the Elohím; and by that which is natural, attain to that which is spiritual.
6. Truly, the Elohím created man in the divine image male and female, and all nature is in the image of Elohím, therefore is Elohím both male and female, not divided, but the Two in One, Undivided and Eternal, by whom and in whom are all things, visible and invisible.
7. From the Eternal they flow, to the Eternal they return. The spirit to Spirit, soul to Soul, mind to Mind, sense to Sense, life to Life, form to Form, dust to Dust.
8. In the beginning Elohím willed and there came forth the beloved Son—the divine Love, and the beloved Daughter—the holy Wisdom, equally proceeding from the One Eternal Fount; and of these are the generations of the spirits of Elohím, the Sons and Daughters of the Eternal.
9. And these descend to earth, and dwell with men and teach them the ways of Elohím, to love the laws of the Eternal, and obey them, that in them they may find salvation.
10. Many nations have seen their day. Under various names have they been revealed to them, and they have rejoiced in their light; and even now they come again to you, but Yisraél receives them not.
11. Truly I say to you, my twelve, whom I have chosen, that which has been taught by them of old time is true—though corrupted by the foolish imaginations of men.”
12. Again, Yahshúa spoke to Miriám Magdalena saying, “It is written in the Toráh, ‘Whoever leaves father or mother, let him die the death.’ Now the Law speaks not of the parents in this life, but of the Indweller of light, which is in us to this day.
13. Whosoever therefore forsakes Mashíakh the Saviour, the Holy Toráh, and the Body of the Elect, let them die the death. Yes, let them be lost in the outer darkness, for so they willed, and none can hinder.”

Chapter 65

The Last Anointing by Miriám Magdalena

1. NOW, on the evening of the Shabbath before the Passover, as Yahshúa was in Bethany, he went to the house of Shimón the leper [jar-maker per Peshitta], and there they made him a supper, and Martha served while Lazarus [Eleazar] was one of them that sat at table with him.
2. And there came Miriám called Magdalena, having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard, very precious and costly, and she opened the box and poured the ointment on the head of Yahshúa, and anointed his feet, and wiped them with the hair of her head.
3. Then said one among his disciples, Judas Iscariot, who was to betray him, “Why is this waste of ointment which might have been sold for three hundred pence and given to the poor?” And this he said not that he cared for the poor but because he was filled with jealousy and greed, and had the bag, and carried what was put therein. And they murmured against her.
4. And Yahshúa said, “Let her alone, why trouble ye her? for she has done all she could; yea, she has wrought a good work on me. For ye have the poor always with you, but me ye have not always. She has anointed my body for the day of my burial.
5. And truly, I say to you, wheresoever this Gospel shall be preached in the whole world there shall also be told this that she has done for a memorial of her.”
6. Then entered Satan into the heart of Judas Iscariot and he went his way and communed with the chief priests and captains how he might betray him. And they were glad and covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver, the price of a slave, and he promised them, and after that sought opportunity to betray him.
7. And at that time, Yahshúa said to his disciples, “Preach ye to all the world, saying, ‘Strive to receive the mysteries of Light, and enter into the Kingdom of Light, for now is the accepted time and now is the day of Salvation.
8. Put ye not off from day to day, and from cycle to cycle and eon to eon, in the belief, that when ye return to this world ye will succeed in gaining the mysteries and entering the Kingdom of Light.
9. For ye know not when the number of perfected souls shall be filled up, and then will be shut the gates of the Kingdom of Light, and from hence none will be able to come in thereby, nor will any go forth.
10. Strive ye that ye may enter while the call is made, until the number of perfected souls shall be sealed and complete, and the door is shut.”

Chapter 66

Yahshúa Again Teaches His Disciples

1. AGAIN Yahshúa taught them saying, “Elohím has raised up witnesses to the truth in every nation and every age, that all might know the will of the Eternal and do it, and after that, enter into the kingdom, to be rulers and workers with the Eternal.
2. Elohím is Power, Love and Wisdom, and these three are One. Elohím is Truth, Goodness and Beauty, and these three are One.
3. Elohím is Justice, Knowledge and Purity, and these three are One. Elohím is Splendour, Compassion and Holiness, and these three are One.
4. And these four Trinities are One in the hidden Deity, the Perfect, the Infinite, the Only.
5. Likewise in every man who is perfected, there are three persons, that of the son, that of the spouse, and that of the father, and these three are one.
6. So in every woman who is Perfected are there three persons, that of the daughter, that of the bride, and that of the mother and these three are one; and the man and the woman are one, even as Elohím is One
7. Thus it is with Elohím the Father-Mother, in Whom is neither male nor female and in Whom is both, and each is threefold, and all are One in the hidden Unity.
8. Marvel not at this, for as it is above so it is below, and as it is below, so it is above, and that which is on earth is so, because it is so in Heaven.
9. Again, I say to you, I and My Bride are one, even as Miriám Magdalena, whom I have chosen and sanctified to Myself as a type, is one with Me; I and My Assembly are One. And the Assembly is the elect of humanity for the salvation of all.
10. The Assembly of the first born is the Maria [Miriám] of Elohím. Thus said the Eternal, She is My Mother and she has ever conceived Me and brought Me forth as Her Son in every age and clime. She is My Bride, ever one in Holy Union with Me her Spouse. She is My Daughter, for she has ever issued and proceeded from Me her Father, rejoicing in Me.
11. And these two Trinities are One in the Eternal and are strewn forth in each man and woman who are made perfect, ever being born of Elohím, and rejoicing in light, ever being lifted up and made one with Elohím, ever conceiving and bringing forth Elohím for the salvation of the many.
12. This is the Mystery of the Trinity in Humanity, and moreover in every individual child of man must be accomplished the mystery of Elohím, ever witnessing to the light, suffering for the truth, ascending into Heaven, and sending forth the Spirit of Truth. And this is the path of salvation, for the kingdom of Elohím is within.”
13. And one said to him, “Master, when shall the kingdom come?” And he answered and said, “When that which is without shall be as that which is within, and that which is within shall be as that which is without, and, the male with the female, neither male nor female, but the two in One. They who have ears to hear, let them hear.”

Chapter 67

Entry Into Jerusalem

1. NOW on the first day of the week when they came near to Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany, at the Mount of Olives, he sends forth two of his disciples, and said to them, “Go your way into the village over against you, and as soon as you be entered into it, ye shall find an donkey tied, whereon never man sat, loose him and bring him.
2. And if any say to you, ‘Why do ye this?’ say ye that ‘the Master has need of him’ and immediately they will send him here.”
3. And they went their way and found the ass tied without in a place where two ways met, and they loosed him. And certain of them that stood there said to them, “What are ye doing—loosing the colt?” And they said to them, even as Yahshúa had commanded. And they let them go.
4. And they brought the donkey to Yahshúa, and cast their garments upon him, and he sat upon the donkey. And many spread their garments in the way, and others cut down branches off the trees and strewed them in the way.
5. And they that went before, and they that followed cried, saying, “Hosanna! Blessed are you who comes in the name of YHWH! Blessed is the Kingdom of our ancestor Dawíd and blessed are you who comes in the name of the Highest! Hosanna in the highest!”
6. AND Yahshúa entered into Jerusalem and into the Miqdásh, and when he had looked round about upon all things, he spoke this parable to them, saying—
7. “When the Son of man shall come in his glory and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory. And before him shall be gathered all nations, and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
8. Then shall the King say to them on his right hand, ‘Come ye blessed of my Parent, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and ye gave me food, was thirsty and ye gave me drink. I was a stranger and ye took me in. Naked and ye clothed me. I was sick and ye visited me. I was in prison and ye came to me.’
9. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, ‘Master, when did we see you hungry and fed you? Or thirsty and gave you drink? when did we see you a stranger and took you in? or naked and clothed you? Or when saw we you sick, or in prison and came to you?’
10. And the King shall answer and say to them, ‘Behold, I manifest myself to you, in all created forms; and truly I say to you, Inasmuch as ye have done it to the least of these my brethren, ye have done it to me’.
11. Then shall he say also to them on his left hand, ‘Depart from me ye evil souls into the eternal fires which ye have prepared for yourselves, till ye are purified seven times and cleansed from your sins.
12. For I was hungry and ye gave me no food, I was thirsty and ye gave me no drink. I was a stranger and ye took me not in, naked and ye clothed me not, sick and in prison and ye visited me not’.
13. Then shall they also answer him, saying, ‘Master, when did we see you hungry, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or in prison, and did not minister to you?’
14. Then shall he answer them, saying, ‘Behold I manifest myself to you, in all created forms, and Truly I say to you, inasmuch as ye did it not to the least of these, my brethren, ye did it not to me’.
15. And the cruel and the loveless shall go away into chastisement for ages, and if they repent not, be utterly destroyed; but the righteous and the merciful, shall go into life and peace everlasting.”

Chapter 68

The Householder And The Husbandmen; Order Out Of Disorder

1. AND Yahshúa said, “Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, who planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about and dug a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen and went into a far country.
2. And when the time of the ripe fruits drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen that they might receive the fruits of it. And the husbandmen took his servants and beat one, and stoned another, and killed another.
3. Again he sent other servants, more honourable than the first, and they did to them likewise. But last of all, he sent to them his son, saying, ‘They will reverence my son’.
4. But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, ‘This is the heir, come let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance’. And they caught him and cast him out of the vineyard and slew him.
5. When the master of the vineyard comes what will he do to those husbandmen? They said to him, ‘He will miserably destroy those wicked men and will let out his vineyard to other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons’.
6. Yahshúa said to them, ‘Did ye never read in the scriptures, The Stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the Pyramid? this is the Master’s doing and it is marvelous in our eyes?’
7. Therefore I say to you, The kingdom of Elohím shall be taken from you and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. And whosoever shall fall on this Stone shall be broken, but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind them to powder.”
8. And when the Chief Priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that he spoke of them. But when they sought to lay hands on him, they feared the multitude, because they took him for a prophet.
9. And afterwards, the disciples asked him the meaning of this parable, and he said to them, “The vineyard is the world, the husbandmen are your priests, and the messengers are the ministers of the good Toráh, and the Prophets.
10. When the fruits of their labor are demanded of the priests, none are given, but they evilly treat the messengers who teach the truth of Elohím, even as they have done from the beginning.
11. And when the Son of Man comes, even the Mashíakh of Elohím, they gather together against the Holy One, and slay him, and cast him out of the vineyard, for they have not wrought the things of the Spirit, but sought their own pleasure and gain, rejecting the sacred Toráh.
12. Had they accepted the Anointed One, who is the corner stone and the head, it would have been well with them, and the Building would have stood, even as the Miqdásh of Elohím inhabited by the Spirit.
13. But the day will come when the Toráh which they reject shall become the head stone, seen of all, and they who stumble on it shall be broken, but they who persist in disobedience shall he ground to pieces.
14. For to some of the angels Elohím gave dominion over the course of this world, charging them to rule in wisdom, in justice, and in love. But they have neglected the commands of the Most-High and rebelled against the good order of Elohím. Thus, cruelty and suffering and sorrow have entered the world, till the time the Master returns, and takes possession of all things, and calls his servants to account.”
15. AND he spoke another parable, saying: “A certain man had two sons, and he came to the first and said, ‘Son, go work today in my vineyard’ and he answered and said, ‘I will not’ but afterwards he repented and went. And he came to the second and said likewise, and he answered and said, ‘I go, sir’ and went not’. Which of those two did the will of his father?
16. They said to him, ‘The first’. And Yahshúa said to them, ‘Truly I say to you, that the publicans and harlots go into the kingdom of Elohím before you. For Yoḥanan came to you in the way of righteousness and ye believed him not, but the tax collectors and the harlots believed him, and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterwards, that ye might believe him’.”
17. AND the Master gathered together all his disciples in a certain place. And he said to them, “Can ye make perfection to appear out of that which is imperfect? Can ye bring order out of disorder?” And they said, “Master, we cannot.”
18. And he placed them according to the number of each in a four-square order, each side lacking one of twelve (and this he did, knowing who should betray him, who should be counted one of them by man, but was not of them).
19. The first in the seventh rank from above in the middle, and the last in the seventh from below, and him that was neither first nor last did he make the Center of all, and the rest according to a Divine order did he place them, each finding his own place, so those which were above, were even as those which were below, and the left side was equal to the right side, and the right side to the left, according to the sum of their numbers.
20. And he said, “See you how ye stand? I say to you, in like manner is the order of the kingdom, and the One who rules all is in your midst, and he is the center, and with him are the hundred and twenty, the elect of Yisraél, and after them comes the hundred and forty and four thousand, and the elect of the Nations, who are their brethren.

Chapter 69

The Mashíakh Within; The Resurrection and the Life

1. As Yahshúa sat by the west of the Miqdásh with his disciples, behold there passed some carrying one that was dead to burial, and a certain one said to him, “Master, if a man die, shall he live again?”
2. And he answered and said, “I am the resurrection and the life, I am the Good, the Beautiful, the True, if a man believe in me, he shall not die, but live eternally. As in Adam all die, so in the Mashíakh shall all be made alive. Blessed are the dead who die in me, and are made perfect in my image and likeness, for they rest from their labors and their works do follow them. They have overcome evil and are made Pillars in the Miqdásh of my Elohím, and they go out no more, for they rest in the Eternal.
3. For them that have done evil there is no rest, but they go out and in, and suffer correction for ages, till they are made perfect. But for them that have done good and attained to perfection, there is endless rest and they go into life everlasting. They rest in the Eternal.
4. Over them the repeated death and birth have no power, for them the wheel of the Eternal revolves no more, for they have attained to the Center, where is eternal rest, and the center of all things is Elohím.”
5. AND one of the disciples asked him, “How shall a man enter into the Kingdom?” And he answered and said, “If ye make not the below as the above, and the left as the right, and the behind as the before, entering into the Center and passing into the Spirit, ye shall not enter into the Kingdom of Elohím.”
6. And he also said, “Ye, do not believe that any man is wholly without error for even among the prophets and those who have been initiated into the Anointing, the word of error has been found. But there are a multitude of errors which are covered by love.”
7. AND now when the evening had come, he went out to Bethany with the twelve. For there, abode Lazarus and Miriám and Martha whom he loved.
8. And Salome came to him, and asked him, saying, “Master, how long shall death hold sway?” And he answered, “So long as ye men inflict burdens and ye woman bring forth, and for this purpose I am come, to end the works of the heedless.”
9.And Salome said to him, “Then I have done well in not bringing forth.” And the Master answered and said, “Eat of every pasture which is good but of that which has the bitterness of death, do not eat.”
10. And when Salome asked when those things of which she enquired should be known, the Master said, “When ye shall tread upon the vesture of shame and rise above desire; when the two shall be one, and the male with the female shall be neither male nor female.”
11. And again, to another disciple who asked, “When shall all obey the Toráh?” Yahshúa said, “When the Spirit of Elohím shall fill the whole earth and every heart of man and of woman.”
12. I cast the Toráh into the earth, and it took root and bore, in due time, twelve fruits for the nourishment of all. I cast the Toráh into the water, and it was cleansed from all defilements of evil. I cast the Toráh into the fire, and the gold was purged from all dross. I cast the Toráh into the air, and it was made alive by the Spirit of the Living One that fills all things and dwells in every heart.”
13. And many other like sayings he spoke to them who had ears to hear, and an understanding mind. But to the multitude they were dark sayings.

Chapter 70

Yahshúa Rebukes Kepha For His Haste

1. NOW on the morrow as they were coming from Bethany, Kepha was hungry, and perceiving a fig tree afar off having leaves thereon, he came, if perhaps he might find fruit thereon, and when he came he found nothing but leaves, for the time of figs was not yet.
2. And Kepha was angry, and said to it, “Accursed tree, no man eat fruit of you hereafter forever.” And some of the disciples heard of it.
3. And the next day as Yahshúa and his disciples passed by, Kepha said to Yahshúa, “Master, behold, the fig tree which I cursed is green and flourishing, why did my word not prevail?”
4. Yahshúa said to Kepha, “You know not what spirit you are of. Why did you curse that which Elohím has not cursed?” And Kepha said, “Behold Master, I was hungry, and finding leaves and no fruit, I was angry, and I cursed the tree.”
5. And Yahshúa said, “Son of Yona, do you not know that the time of figs was not yet? Behold, the corn which is in the field which grows according to its nature first the green shoot, then the stalk, then the ear—would you be angry if you came at the time of the tender shoot or the stalk, and did not find the corn in the ear? And would you curse the tree which, full of buds and blossoms, had not yet ripe fruit?
6. Truly, Kepha, I say to you, one of my twelve will deny me thrice in his fear and anger with curses and swear that he knows me not, and the rest will forsake me for a season.
7. But ye shall repent and grieve bitterly, because in your heart ye love me, and ye [plural] shall be as an altar of twelve hewn stones, and a witness to my name, and ye shall be as the Servants of servants, and the keys of the Assembly will I give to you, and ye shall feed my sheep and my lambs and ye shall be my vice-gerent upon earth.
8. But there shall arise men amongst them that succeed you, some of whom shall indeed love me even as you, who being hotheaded and unwise, and void of patience, shall curse those whom Elohím has not cursed, and persecute them in their ignorance, because they cannot yet find in them the fruits they seek.
9. And others being lovers of themselves shall make alliance with the kings and rulers of the world, and seek earthly power, and riches, and domination, and put to death by fire and sword those who seek the truth, and therefore are truly my disciples.
10. And in their days, I, Yahshúa, shall be crucified afresh and put to open shame, for they will profess to do these things in my name.” And Kepha said, “Be it far from you, Master!”
11. And Yahshúa answered, “As I shall be nailed to the cross, so also shall my Assembly in those days, for she is my Bride and one with me. But the day shall come when this darkness shall pass-away, and true Light shall shine.
12. And one shall sit on my throne, who shall be a Man of Truth and Goodness and Power, and he shall be filled with love and wisdom beyond all others, and shall rule my Assembly by a fourfold twelve and by two and seventy as of old, and that only which is true shall he teach.
13. And my Assembly shall be filled with Light, and give Light to all nations of the earth, and there shall be one Bishop sitting on his throne as a King and a Priest. 14. And my Spirit shall be upon him and his throne shall endure and not be shaken, for it shall be founded on love and truth and equity, and light shall come to it, and go forth from it, to all the nations of the earth, and the Truth shall make them free.”

Section 8, Chapters 71 thru 80

The Cleansing of The Miqdásh

1. AND the Judæan Passover was near, and Yahshúa went up again from Bethany into Jerusalem. And he found in the Miqdásh those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting.
2. And when he had made a scourge of seven cords, he drove them all out of the Miqdásh and loosed the sheep and the oxen, and the doves, and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables;
3. And said to them, “Take these things from here; make not my Father’s House a House of merchandise. Is it not written, ‘My House is a House of prayer for all nations?’ but ye have made it a ‘den of thieves’ and filled it with all manner of abominations.”
4. And he would not allow that any man should carry any vessel of blood through the Miqdásh, or that any animals should be slain. And the disciples remembered that it was written, “Zeal for your house has eaten me up.”
5. Then the Judæans answered, and said to him, “What sign will you show to us, seeing that you do these things?” Yahshúa answered and said to them, “Again I say to you, destroy this Miqdásh, and in three days [and nights, {see 45:2}] I will raise it up.” 6. Then the Judæans said, “Forty and six years was this Miqdásh in building,43)According to our calculations, this was not the 46th year but was the 49th year. If we are correct, they were off three years; Or, as in Torah reasoning, we understand that all things are not arranged in an exact chronological order. and will you raise it up in three days [and nights]?” But he spoke of the Miqdásh of his Body.
7. When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this to them; and believed the scripture and the word which Yahshúa had said.
8. But the Scribes and the Priests saw and heard and were astonished and sought how they might destroy him, for they feared him, seeing that all the people were attentive to his doctrines.
9. And when evening was come, he went out of the city. For by day he taught in the Miqdásh and at night he went out and abode on the Mount of Olives, and the people came early in the morning to hear him in the Miqdásh courts.
10. Now when he was in Jerusalem at the Passover [approaching the week of Pesach/Matsa], many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did.
11. But Yahshúa did not commit himself to them, because he knew all men. And needed not that any should testify of man; for he knew what was in man.
12. And Yahshúa, seeing the Passover night was near, sent two of his disciples, that they should prepare the upper room where he desired to eat with his twelve, and buy such things as were needful for the feast which he purposed thereafter.

Chapter 72

The Many Mansions in The One House

1. AND as Yahshúa sat with his disciples in the Garden of Gethsemane he said to them: “Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in Elohím, believe also in me. In my parent’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you to myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And where I go ye know, and the way ye know.”
2. Thomas said to him, “Master, we know not where you are going; and how can we know the way?” Yahshúa said to him, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man comes to the All Parent but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Parent also: and from henceforth ye know and have seen my Parent.”
3. Philip said to him, “Master, show us the All-Parent and it suffices us.” Yahshúa said to him, “Have I been so long time with you, and yet you have not known me, Philip? He that has seen me has seen the All-Parent; and how do you say then, ‘Show us the All-Parent?’ Do you not believe that I am in the All-Parent, and the All-Parent in me? The words that I speak to you, I speak not of myself: but the All-Parent who dwells in me does the works.
4. Believe me, that I am in the All-Parent and the All-Parent in me: or else, believe me for the very works’ sake. Truly, Truly, I say to you, they who believe on me, the works that I do shall they do also, and greater works than these shall they do because I go to my Parent.
5. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the All-Parent may be glorified in the Son and Daughter of Man. If ye shall ask anything in my Name, I will do it.
6. If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the All-Parent, Who shall give you another Comforter, to abide with you forever—even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it sees not, neither knows, but ye know; for, the Spirit dwells with you and shall be in you.
8. They who have my commandments, and keep them, these are they who love me. And they that love me shall be loved of my Parent, and I will love them and will manifest myself to them.”
9. Yahudah said to him, “Master, how is it that you will manifest yourself to us and not to the world?” Yahshúa answered and said to him, “If any love me, they will keep my words and the Holy One will love them and we will come to them and make our abode with them.
10. They that do not love me do not keep my sayings; And, the word which ye hear is not mine but the All-Parent’s who sent me. These things have I spoken to you, being yet present with you. But the Comforter, who is my Mother, Sacred Wisdom, whom the Father will send in my name, she shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said to you.
11. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you; not as the world gives, do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. Ye have heard how I said to you, I go away, and come again to you. If ye loved me ye would rejoice, because I said, I go to the All-Parent; For, the All-Parent is greater than I.
12. And now I have told you before it happens, that, when it has happened, ye may believe. Hereafter I will not talk much with you; For, the prince of this world comes and has nothing in me.
13. But that the world may know that I love the All-Parent, as the All-Parent gave me commandment, even so I do. Even to the end.”

The True Vine

Chapter 73

1. AFTER these things Yahshúa spoke, saying to them: “I am the true vine, and my Parent is the vinedresser. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit is taken away: and every branch that bears fruit, is pruned that it may bring forth more fruit.
2a. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, no more can ye, unless ye abide in me.
2b. I am the tree, ye are the branches. Whosoever abides in me and I in them, the same brings forth much fruit; for apart from me ye do nothing.
3. If any do not abide in me, they are cast forth as useless branches, and they wither away, and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it will be done to you.
4. Truly, I am the true Bread which comes down out of Heaven, even the Substance [sustenance] of Elohím which is one with the Life of Elohím. And, as many grains are in one bread, so are ye, who believe, and do the will of my Parent, one in me. Not as your ancestors did eat manna and are dead, but they who eat this Bread shall live forever.
5. As the wheat is separated from the chaff, so must ye be separated from the falsities of the world; yet, ye must not go out of the world, but live separate in the world, for the life of the world.
6. Truly, Truly, the wheat is parched by fire, so must ye my disciples pass through tribulations. But rejoice ye! For, having suffered with me as one body, ye shall reign with me in one body and give life to the world.
7. Herein is my Parent glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so ye shall be my disciples. As the All-Parent has loved me, so have I loved you—continue ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Parent’s commandments and abide in the spirit of love.
8. These things have I spoken to you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. This is my commandment: that ye love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no man than this: that a man lay down his life for his friend. Ye are my friends if ye do whatsoever I command you.
9. Henceforth, I call you not servants; for the servant does not know what his master does. But I have called you friends for all things that I have heard of my Parent I have made known to you. Ye have not chosen me but I have chosen you and ordained you, that ye should remain, that whatsoever ye shall ask of the All-Parent in my name, ye may receive.
10. These things I command you, that ye love one another and all the creatures of Elohím. If the world hates you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love its own, but because ye are not of the world but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.
11. Remember the word that I said to you, ‘The servant is not greater than his master.’ If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do to you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.
12. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have had sin; But now, they have no covering for their sin. He that hates me hates my Parent also. If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they would not have had sin; But now, have they seen and hated both me and my Parent. But this comes to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their Toráh, ‘They hated me without a cause.’
13. But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the All Parent, even the Spirit of truth, which proceeds from the Father and the Mother, the same shall testify of me. And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.”

Chapter 74

Yahshúa Foretells Persecutions

1. “THESE things have I spoken to you that ye should be forewarned: They shall put you out of the Synagogues; yea, the time comes, that whosoever kills you will think that they do Elohím’s service. And these things will they do to you, because they have not known the All Parent, nor me.
2. But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not to you at the beginning, because I was with you. But now I go my way to my Parent that sent me; and none of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’ But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart.
3. Nevertheless I tell you the truth: It is expedient for you that I go away; for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send my Spirit to you. And when the Spirit is come, the world shall be reproved of sin and of righteousness, and of judgement.
4. Of sin, because they believe not on me; of righteousness, because I go to my Father and ye see me no more; of judgement, because the prince of this world is judged.
5. I have yet many things to say to you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit, when the Spirit of Truth is come, she will guide you into all truth, and the same will show you things to come and shall glorify me; For, the same shall receive of mine and shall show it to you.
6. All things that my Parent has are mine: therefore, I said, that the Comforter shall take of mine and shall show it to you. A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the All-Parent. Then of his disciples said among themselves, “What is this he says to us: ‘A little while and ye shall not see me’: and again, ‘A little while and ye shall see me’, and, ‘Because I go to the All-Parent’?
7. Now Yahshúa knew that they were desirous to ask him, and said to them, “Do ye enquire among yourselves of that I said, ‘A little while, and ye shall see me’? Truly, Truly, I say you, that ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice, and ye shall be sorrowful; But your sorrow shall be turned into joy.
8. A woman, when she is in travail, has sorrow because her hour is come. But as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembers no more the anguish for joy that a person is born into the world. And ye now therefore have sorrow; but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy—no man takes from you.
9. And in that day, ye shall ask me nothing. Truly, Truly, I say to you, ‘Whatsoever ye shall ask my Parent in my name, ye will receive. Until now ye have asked nothing in my name: ask and ye shall receive that your joy may be full. These things have I spoken to you in proverbs; but the time comes, when I shall no more speak to you in a mystery, but I shall show you plainly of the All-Parent.
10. At that day, ye shall ask in my name. And I say not to you, that I will pray my Parent for you; For the All-Parent in truth loves you because ye have loved me and have believed that I came out from Elohím. I came forth from Elohím, and am come into the world; Again, I leave the world and go to my Elohím.”
11. His disciples said to him, “Ah! now you speak plainly, and speak no mystery. Now are we sure that you know all things and need not that any man should ask you: by this we believe that you come forth from Elohím.
12. Yahshúa answered them, “Do ye now believe? Behold, the hour comes, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own home, and shall leave me alone; And yet, I am not alone because the Father is with me.
13. These things I have spoken to you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation but be of good cheer. I have overcome the world. Arise, let us go forth.

Chapter 75

The Last Paschal Supper

71:12. And Yahshúa, seeing the Passover night was near, sent two of his disciples, that they should prepare the upper room where he desired to eat with his twelve, and buy such things as were needful for the festival which he purposed thereafter…

75:1
. AND at evening, the Master came into the house, and there are gathered with him the Twelve and their fellows: Kepha and Ya’aqóḅ and Thomá and Yoḥanan and Shimon and Matithyáhu and Andrew and Nathanael and Ya’aqóḅ and Thaddeus and Yahudah and Philip and their companions (and there was also Judas Iscariot, who by men was numbered with the twelve, till the time when he should be manifested).
2. And they were all clad in garments of white linen, pure and clear, for linen is the righteousness of the saints; and each had the color of his tribe. But the Master was clad in his pure white robe covering all, without seam or spot.
3. And there arose contention among them as to which of them should be esteemed the greatest. Wherefore he said to them, “He that is greatest among you let him be as he that serves.”
4. And Yahshúa said, “With desire have I desired to eat this Passover [meal] with you before I suffer, and to institute the Memorial of my Oblation for the service and salvation/liberation of all. For behold the hour comes when the ‘Son of Man’ shall be betrayed into the hands of sinners.”
5. And one of the twelve said to him, “Master, is it I?” And he answered, “He to whom I give the sop, the same is he.”
6. And Iscariot said to him, “Master, behold the unleavened bread [Matsa], the mingled wine and the oil and the herbs, but where is the lamb that Mosheh commanded? (for Judas had bought the lamb but Yahshúa had forbidden that it should be killed).
7. And Yoḥanan spoke in the Spirit, saying, “Behold the Lamb of Elohím, the good Shepherd which gives his life for the sheep.” And Yahudah was troubled at these words, for he knew that he should betray him. But again, Yahudah said, “Master, is it not written in the Toráh that a lamb must be slain for the Passover within the gates?”
8. And Yahshúa answered, “If I am lifted up on the tree then indeed shall the lamb be slain; But woe to him by whom it is delivered into the hands of the slayers. It would have been better of him had he not been born.
9. Truly I say to you, for this end have I come into the world, that I may put away all blood offerings and the eating of the flesh of the animals and the birds that are slain by men.
10. In the beginning, Elohím gave to all, the fruits of the trees, and the seeds, and the herbs, for food; but those who loved themselves more than Elohím, or their fellows, corrupted their ways, and brought diseases into their bodies, and filled the earth with lust and violence.
11. Not by shedding innocent blood, therefore, but by living a righteous life, ye shall find the peace of Elohím. Ye call me the Mashíakh of Elohím and ye say well, for I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
12. Walk ye in the Way, and ye shall find Elohím. Seek ye the Truth and the Truth shall make you free. Live in the Life and ye shall see no death. All things are alive in Elohím, and the Spirit of Elohím fills all things.
13. Keep ye the commandments. Love your Elohím with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself. On these hangs all the Toráh and the Prophets. And the sum of the Toráh is this—Do not ye to others as ye would not that others should do to ye. Do ye to others as ye desire that others should do to you.
14. Blessed are they who keep this Toráh for Elohím is manifested in all creatures. All creatures live in Elohím, and Elohím is hid in them.”
15. After these things, Yahshúa dipped the sop and gave it to Yahudah Iscariot, saying, “What you do, do quickly.” He then, having received the sop, went out immediately, and it was light.”
16.And when Yahudah Iscariot had gone out, Yahshúa said, “Now is the Son of man glorified among his twelve and Elohím is glorified in him. And truly I say to you, they who receive you receive me, and they who receive me receive the Father-Mother who sent me, and ye who have been faithful to the truth shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Yisraél.”
17. And one said to him, “Master, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Yisraél?” And Yahshúa said, “My kingdom is not of this world, neither are all of them Yisraél who are called, ‘Yisraél’.
18. They in every nation who defile not themselves with cruelty, who do righteousness, love mercy, and reverence all the works of Elohím, who give assistance to all that are weak and oppressed—the same are the Yisraél of Elohím.”

Chapter 76

The Washing of Feet; New Commandment; The Eucharistic Oblation

1. AND the lamps were burning for it was evening and the Paschal Supper was completed. And Yahshúa arose from the table and laid aside his garment [tallit], and girded himself with a towel, and pouring water into a basin, washed the feet of each of the fourfold Twelve, and wiped them with the towel with which he was girded.
2. And one of them said, “Master, you shall not wash my feet.” And Yahshúa said, “If I wash you not, you hast no part with me.” And he answered, “Rabbi, wash not my feet only, but my head and my hands.”
3. And he said to him, “They who have come out of the bath, need not but to wash their feet, and they are clean every bit.”
4. AND then putting on the overgarment [tallit] of pure white linen without spot or seam, he sat at the table and said to them, “Do ye know what I have done to you? Ye call me Master and Rabbi, and if then your Master and Rabbi have washed your feet, ye ought also to wash one another’s feet. For I have given this example, that as I have done to you, so also should ye do to others.

5. A new commandment I give to you, that ye love one another and all the creatures of Elohím. Love is the fulfilling of the Toráh. Love is of Elohím, and Elohím is love. Whosoever loves not, knows not Elohím.

6. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken to you. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples if ye have love one to another and show mercy and love to all creatures of Elohím, especially to those that are weak and oppressed and suffer wrong. For the whole earth is filled with dark places of cruelty, and with pain and sorrow, by the selfishness and ignorance of man.
7. I say to you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, and give them light for their darkness and let the spirit of love dwell within your hearts and abound to all. And again, I say to you, love one another and all the creation of Elohím.” And when he had finished, they said, “Blessed is Elohím!”
8. Then he lifted his voice, and they joined him, saying, “As the deer pants for the water brooks, so  my soul pants after you, O Elohím …” Psalm 42 And when they had finished, one brought to him a censer full of live coals, and he cast frankincense thereon, even the frankincense which his mother had given him in the day of his manifestation, and the sweetness of the odor filled the room.
9. Then Yahshúa, placing before him the platter, and behind it the chalice, and lifting up his eyes to heaven, gave thanks for the goodness of Elohím in all things and to all, and after that he took in his hands the unleavened bread [Matsa], and blessed it; the wine likewise mingled with water and blessed it; chanting the Invocation of the Sacred Name the Sevenfold [Ya Hei Wa Hei Wa Hei Ya], calling upon the thrice Holy Father-Mother in Heaven to send down the Sacred Breath and make the bread to be his body, even the Body of the Mashíakh, and the fruit of the vine to be his blood, even the Blood of the Mashíakh, for the remission of sins and everlasting life to all who obey the gospel.
10. Then lifting up the Oblation towards heaven, he said, “The Son of Humanity” ([the Bar-Enosh] who is also inclusive of the Daughter) is lifted up from the earth, and I shall draw all people to me; then it shall be known of the people that I am sent from Elohím.”
11. These things being done, Yahshúa spoke these words, lifting his eyes to heaven. “Abba-Imma, the hour is come, glorify Your Son that Your Son may be glorified in you.
12. Yes! You have glorified me; You have filled my heart with fire; You have set lamps on my right hand and on my left so that no part of my being should be without light; Your love shines on my right hand and on my left so that no part of my being should be without light; Your love shines on my right hand and Your wisdom on my left; Your love, Your wisdom, and Your power are manifest in me.
13. I have glorified You on earth; I have finished the work You gave me to do. Sacred One, keep through Your Name the Twelve and their fellows whom You have given me, that they may be One even as we are One. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your Name, and none of them is lost, for he who went out from us, was not of us, nevertheless, I pray for him that he may be restored. Father-Mother, forgive him, for he knows not what he does.
14. And now I come to You, and these things I speak in the world that they may have my joy fulfilled in themselves. I give them Your word, and the world hates them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
15. I pray not that You should take them out of the world but that You should keep them from evil while yet in the world. Sanctify them through Your Truth: Your Word is Truth. As You sent me into the world, so also, I send them into the world, and for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also may be sanctified through the truth.
16. Neither pray I for these alone but for all that shall be added to their number and for the Two and Seventy also whom I sent forth, yea, and for all that shall believe in the truth through Your Word, that they also may be one as You, Most Sacred One, are in me and I in You; that they may also be one in You, that the world may know that You have sent me.
17. Sacred Parent, I will also, that they whom You have given me, yea all who live, be with me where I am, that they may partake of my glory which you give me, for You love me in all, and all in me, from before the foundations of the world.
18. The world has not known You in Your righteousness, but I know You, and these know that You have sent me.
19. And I have declared to them Your Name that the love wherewith You have loved me may be in them, and that from them it may abound, even to all Your creatures, yea, even to all.” These words being ended, they all lifted their voices with him, and prayed as he taught them, saying:
20. “Our Father-Mother: Who are above and within, Consecrated be Your Sacred Name, in a duality of three—In Wisdom, Love, and Equity. Your Kingdom come to all. Your Sacred Will be done always—as in Heaven, so on Earth. Give us day by day to partake of Your sacred bread, and the fruit of Your living vine. As we seek to perfect others, so perfect us in Your Mashíakh. Show upon us Your goodness, that to others we many show the same. In the hour of trial, deliver us from evil.
21. For Yours are the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory: From the ages of ages, now, and to the ages of ages. Amein!”
22. THEN our Master took the Sacred Bread and broke it and also the Fruit of the Vine and mingled it, and having blessed and sanctified both, and casting a fragment of the Bread into the Cup, he blessed the holy Union.
23. Then he gave the bread which he had consecrated to his disciples saying, “Eat ye, for this is my body, even the body of the Mashíakh, which is given for the liberation of the body and the soul.”
24. Likewise he gave to them the fruit of the vine which he had blessed, saying to them, “Drink ye, for this is my blood, even the blood of the Mashíakh which is shed for you and for many, for the liberation of the soul and the body.”
25. And when all had partaken, he said to them, “As often as ye assemble together in my name, make this Oblation for a memorial of me, even the bread of everlasting life and the wine of eternal liberation, and eat and drink thereof with pure heart, and ye shall receive of the substance and the life of Elohím, which dwells in me.”
26. And when they had sung a hymn, Yahshúa stood up amid his apostles, and going to him who was their Center, as in a solemn dance, they rejoiced in him. And then, he went out to the Mount of Olives, and his disciples followed him.
27. Now Yahudah Iscariot had gone to the house of Caiaphas and said to him, “Behold! he has celebrated the Passover, within the gates, with the Matsa in place of the Lamb. I indeed bought a lamb, but he forbade that it should be killed, and see, the man of whom I bought it, is a witness.”
28. And Caiaphas rent his clothes and said, “Truly this is the Passover of the Toráh of Moshéh. He has done the deed, which is worthy of death, for it is a weighty transgression of the Toráh. What need of further witness? Yea, even now two robbers have broken into the Miqdásh and stolen the Book of the Toráh, and this is the end-result of his teaching. Let us tell these things to the people who follow him, for they will fear the authority of the Toráh.”
29. And one that was standing by as Yahudah came out, said to him, “Do you think that they will put him to death?”
30. And Yahudah said, “No, for he will do some mighty work to deliver himself out of their hands, even as when they of the synagogue in Capernaum rose up against him and brought him to the brow of the hill that they might throw him down headlong. And did he not pass safely through their midst? He will surely escape them now also and proclaim himself openly and set up the Kingdom whereof he spoke.”

Chapter 77

The Agony in The Garden

1. AND as they went to the Mount of Olives, Yahshúa said to them, “All ye shall be offended because of me this night; for it is written, ‘I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad’. But after I am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee.”
2.Shimon answered and said to him, “Though all men shall be offended because of you, yet I will never be offended.” And the Master said, “Shimon, Shimon, behold Satan has desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you that your faith does not fail; and when you are converted, strengthen your brethren.”
3. And he said to him, “Master, I am ready to go with you, both to prison and to death.” And Yahshúa said, “I tell you, Shimon, the rooster shall not crow this night, before that you shall thrice deny that you know me.”
4. Then comes Yahshúa with them, having crossed the brook Kidron, to the garden called Gethsemane, and said to the disciples, “Sit ye here while I go and pray over there.” (Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place, for Yahshúa often times resorted there with his disciples.)
5. Then said he to them, “My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even to death; wait ye here, and watch with me.”
6. And he went little further and fell on his face and prayed, saying, “O my Father-Mother, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.”
7. And there appeared an angel to him, from heaven strengthening him. And he came to the disciples and finding them asleep, said to Kepha, “What, could ye not watch with me one hour?
8. Watch and pray that ye enter not into trial: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
9. He went away again a second time and prayed, saying, “O my Father-Mother, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, Your will be done.”
10. And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling to the ground.
11. And he came and found them asleep again, for their eyes were heavy.
12. And he left them and went away again and prayed a third time, saying, “O my Father-Mother, not my will but Yours be done, in earth as it is in heaven.”
13. Then he came to his disciples and said to them, “Sleep on now, and take your rest; behold, the hour is near, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. Rise! let us be going. Behold, he is at hand that does betray me.”

Chapter 78

The Betrayal by Yahudah ‘Iscariot’

1. AND it was while Yahshúa yet spoke, behold there came a multitude, and Yahudah that was called ‘Iscariot’ went before them. For Yahudah, having received a band of men and officers from the Chief Priests and Pharisees, came there with lanterns and torches and weapons.
2. Yahshúa therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth and said to them, “Whom do ye seek?” They answered him, “Yahshúa of Nazareth.” Yahshúa said to them, “I am he.”
3. As soon then as he had said to them, “I am he”, they went backward and fell to the ground. And when they arose, then he asked them again, “Whom do ye seek?” And they said, “Yahshúa of Nazareth.” And Yahshúa answered, “I have told you: I am he. If therefore ye seek me, let these go their way.”
4. Now he that betrays him gave them a sign, saying, “Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him securely.”
5. And forthwith he came to Yahshúa and said, “Hail, Master; and kissed him.” And Yahshúa said to him, “Friend, why have you come? Is it with a kiss that you betray the Son of man?”
6. Then Yahshúa said to the Chief Priests and Captains of the Miqdásh and the Elders, which were come to him, “Why do ye come out as against a thief, with swords and staves? When I was daily with you in the Miqdásh, ye stretched forth no hands against me; but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.”
7. Then came they and laid hands on Yahshúa. And Shimón Kepha stretched forth his hand and drew his sword and struck a servant of the High Priest and cut off his ear.
8. Then said Yahshúa to him, “Put up again your sword into its place—all they that take the sword shall perish by the sword.” And Yahshúa touched his ear and healed him.
9. And he said to Kepha, “Do you think that I cannot now pray to my Parent, and He shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels? But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled that thus it must be?”
10. Then all the disciples forsook him and fled. And they that had laid hands on Yahshúa led him away to Caiaphas, the High Priest. But they brought him to Annas first because he was father-in-law to Caiaphas, who was the High Priest for that same year.
11. Now Caiaphas was he who gave council to the Judæans that it was expedient that one man should die for the sins of the people.
12. And the Scribes and the Elders were assembled together, but Kepha and Yoḥanan and Shimon and Yahudah followed far off to the High Priest’s palace, and they went in and sat with the servants to see the end.
13. And they had kindled a fire in the midst of the hall, and when they were set down together, Kepha sat down among them and warmed himself, and Shimon also sat by him.
14. But a certain maid beheld him as he sat by the fire, and earnestly looked upon him and said, “This man was also with him.” And he denied him, saying, “Woman, I know do not know him.”
15. And after a little while, another saw him and said, “You are also of them”. And Simon said, “Man, I am not.”
16. And about the space of one hour another confidently affirmed, saying, “Of a truth this fellow was with Yahshúa of Nazareth for his speech betrays him.”
17. And Shimon denied the third time with an oath, saying, “I know not the man.” And immediately, while he yet spoke, the rooster crowed.
18. And the Master turned and looked upon Shimon. And Shimón remembered the word of the Master, how he had said to him, “Before the rooster crows this day you shall deny me thrice.” And Shimon went out and wept bitterly.

Chapter 79

The Hebrew Trial before Caiaphas

1. THE High Priest then asked Yahshúa of his disciples and of his doctrine, saying, “How old are you? Are you he that said that our father Abraham saw your day?”
2. And Yahshúa answered, “Truly, before Abraham was, I am he.” And the High Priest said, “You are not yet fifty years old. How do you say that you have seen Abraham? Who are you? Whom do you make yourself to be? What do you teach?”
3. And Yahshúa answered him, “I spoke openly to the world; I even taught in the Synagogue and in the Miqdásh, where the Judæans always resort; and in secret I have said nothing. Why do you ask me? Ask them which heard me, what I have said to them; behold, they know what I said.”
4. And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers which stood by, struck Yahshúa with the palm of his hand, saying, “Do you answer the High Priest so?” Yahshúa answered him, “If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil, but if well why do you strike me?”
5. Now the Chief Priests and Elders, and all the Council sought false witnesses against Yahshúa to put him to death; but found none; yea, many false witnesses came, yet they agreed not together.
6. At the last came two false witnesses. And one of them said, “This fellow said, ‘I am able to destroy the Miqdásh of Elohím and to build it in three days [and nights, {see 45:2}].”44)Cf. 20:5; 31:7; 43:8; 44:14; 45:2; 51:2, 9; 64:8, 10; 72:5; 76:10; 83:10; 84:9; 88:6 And the other said, “This man said I will destroy this Miqdásh and build up another.”
7. And the High Priests arose and said to him, “Do you answer nothing? What is it which these witnesses speak against you?” But Yahshúa held his peace. Now it was unlawful among the Hebrews to try a man by night.
8. And they said to him, “Are you the Mashíakh? Tell us.” And he said to them, “If I tell you, ye will not believe; and if I also ask you, ye will not answer me, nor let me go.”
9. And they asked him further saying, “Do you abolish the sacrifices of the Toráh, and the eating of flesh as Moshéh commanded?” And he answered, “Behold, a greater than Moshéh is here.”
10. And the High Priest answered and said to him, I adjure you by the living ĔL, that you tell us whether you are the Mashíakh, the Son of Elohím!” Yahshúa said to him, “You have spoken, and I say to you, ‘Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power and coming in the clouds of Heaven.”
11. Then the High Priest rent his clothes, saying, “He has spoken blasphemy. What further need do we have of witnesses? Behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy. What do ye think?” They answered and said, “He is worthy of death!”
12. Then they spit in his face and battered him. And others struck him with the palms of their hands, saying, “Prophesy to us, you Mashíakh! Who is he that struck you?”
13. Now when morning was come all the Chief Priests and the Elders of the people, even the whole Council held a consultation, and took council against Yahshúa to put him to death.
14. And they gave forth their sentence against Yahshúa, that he was worthy of death, and that he should be bound and carried away, and delivered to Pilate.

Chapter 80

The Penance of Judas

1. NOW Yahudah, who had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the Chief Priests and Elders, saying, “I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood.”
2. And they said, “What is that to us? You see to that.” And he cast down the pieces of silver in the Miqdásh and departed and went out and hanged himself.
3. And the Chief Priests took the pieces of silver and said, “It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood.”
4. And they took council and bought with them the potter’s field, to bury strangers in. Wherefore that field was called Akeldama, that is, the field of blood, to this day. 5. Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Zacharyah, the prophet, saying, “They weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver.” And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Yisraél [YiSarĔL]45)The name of Yisrael is broken down thusly: Yi-S`ara-ĔL: He-will rule as a Prince-with/for ĔL. did value, and gave them for the potteries field, and cast them to the potter in the House of YHWH.
6. Now, Yahshúa had said to his disciples, “Woe to the man who receives the mysteries and falls into sin thereafter.
7. For such there is no place of repentance in this cycle, seeing they have crucified afresh the Divine Offspring of Elohím and man, and put the Mashíakh within them to an open shame.
8. Such are worse than the animals, whom ye ignorantly affirm to perish, for in your Scriptures it is written, ‘That which befalls the animal befalls the sons of men.’
9. All live by one breath, as the one dies so dies the other, so that a man has no preeminence over an animal, for all go to the same place—all come from the dust and return to the dust together.”
10. These things spoke Yahshúa concerning them which were not regenerate, not having received the Spirit of Divine Love, who, once having received the Light, crucified the Son of Elohím afresh, putting him to an open shame.

Section 9, Chapters 81 Thru 89

The Roman Trial Before Pilate

1. THEN they led Yahshúa from Caiaphas to the hall of judgment, to Pontius Pilate, the Governor, and it was early, and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might keep the feast.
2. Pilate therefore went out to them and said, “What accusation do ye bring against this man?” They answered and said to him, “If he were not a criminal, we would not have delivered him up to you. We have a law and by our law he ought to die, because he would change the customs and rites which Moshéh delivered to us, yea, he made himself the Son of Elohím.”
3. Then Pilate said to them, “Ye take him and judge him according to your law.” For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.
4. The Judæans therefore said to him, “It is not lawful for us to put any man to death.” So, the saying of Yahshúa was fulfilled, which he spoke, signifying what death he should die.
5. And they further accused him saying, “We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying that he himself is King Mashíakh.”
6. Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again and called Yahshúa and said to him, “Are you the King of the Judæans?” Yahshúa answered him, “Do you say this thing of yourself, or did others tell it you of me?”
7. Pilate answered, “Am I a Judæan? Your own nation and the Chief Priests have delivered you to me; what have you done?” Yahshúa answered, “My kingdom is not of this world, if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Judæan; but now is kingdom my not from here.”
8. Pilate therefore said to him, “Are you a King then?” Yahshúa answered, “You say that I am, yes, a King I am. To this end was I born and for this cause I came to the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Every one that is of the truth hears my voice.”
9. Pilate said to him, “What is truth? Yahshúa said, “Truth is from heaven.” Pilate said, “Then truth is not on earth.” Yahshúa said to Pilate, “Do you believe that truth is on earth amongst those who receive and obey it? They are of the truth who judge righteously.”
10. And when he had heard this, he went out again to the Judæans and said to them, “I find in him no fault at all.” And when he was accused of the Chief Priests and Elders, he answered them nothing.
11. Then said Pilate to him, “Do you not hear, how many things they witness against you?”
12. And he answered him not a word, insomuch that the governor marveled greatly, and again he said to them, “I find no fault in this man.”
13. And they grew more fierce saying, “He stirs up the people, teaching throughout all Jewry, beginning from Galilee to this place.” When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man was a Galilean.
14. AND as soon as he knew that he belonged to Herod’s jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who himself also, was at Jerusalem at the time.
15. And when Herod saw Yahshúa he was exceedingly glad, for he was desirous to see him of a long season, because he had heard many things of him, and he hoped to have seen some miracle done by him.
16. Then he questioned with him in many words, but he answered him nothing. And the Chief Priests and Scribes stood and vehemently accused him, and many false witnesses rose up against him and laid to his charge things that he did not know.
17. And Herod with his men of war set him at nothing [disregarded him as a nobody], and mocked him, and arrayed him in a gorgeous robe and sent him again to Pilate. And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together, for before, they were at enmity between themselves.
18. And Pilate went again into the Judgment Hall and said to Yahshúa, “Where are you from?” But Yahshúa gave him no answer. Then Pilate said to him, “Do you not speak to me? Do you not know that I have power to crucify you and have power to release you?”
19. Yahshúa answered, “You could have no power at all against me unless it were given you from above, therefore he that delivered me to you has the greater sin.”
20. And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him; but the Judæans cried out, saying, “If you let this man go you are no friend of Caesar, whosoever makes himself a king speaks against Caesar.”
21. And Pilate called together the Chief Priests and Rulers of the people. When he was set down on the judgement seat his wife sent to him, saying. “Have you nothing to do with that just man, for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.”
22. And Pilate said to them, “Ye have brought this man to me, as one that perverts the people, and behold I have examined him before you, and have found no fault in this man touching those things: whereof ye accuse him. No, nor yet Herod, for I sent you to him, and lo nothing worthy of death was found in him.
23. But ye have a custom that I should release to you one at the Passover, will ye therefore that I release to you the King of the Judæans?
24. Then cried they all again, saying, “Not this man, but Barabba.” Now Barabba was a robber. And for sedition made in the city and for murder, he was cast into prison.
25. Pilate therefore, willing to release Yahshúa, spoke again to them. Whether of the two will ye that I release to you; Yahshúa Barabba, or Yahshúa which is called ‘the Mashíakh’? They said, “Barabba.”
26. Pilate said to them, “What then shall I do with Yahshúa, which is called ‘the Mashíakh’”? They all say to him, “Let him be crucified.”
27. And the Governor said, “Why, what evil has he done?” But they cried out all the more, saying, “Crucify him, crucify him!”
28. Pilate therefore went forth again and said to them, “Behold, again, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him, and again they cried out, ‘Crucify him, crucify him’!
29. And Pilate said to them, the third time, “Why, what evil has he done? I have found no cause of death in him: I will therefore chastise him and let him go.”
30. And they were instant with loud voices, requiring that he might be crucified. And the voices of them and of the Chief Priests prevailed.
31. When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, “I am innocent of the blood of this just person: ye see to it.”
32. Then answered all the people, and said, “His blood be on us and on our children.” And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required. And he delivered Yahshúa to their will.

This is part of the Sacred Biblical Calendar of the Essenes. It is found in the Dead Sea Scrolls, and the Books of Enoch and Jubilees. In it, there are 364 Days per year, 52 Weekly Sabbath Days, 12 Months, and 4 Seasons of 91 days each; And, all of the Festival dates fall on the same day of the week every year. This is not to be confused with the corrupted 1st Century Calendar of the Judæan Establishment or later Rabbinic Calendars nor of Roman Catholicism. We have covered further details of its history and workings in writings elsewhere.

Chapter 82

The Crucifixion

1. THEN he released Barabba to them, and when he had scourged Yahshúa he delivered him to be crucified. Then the soldiers of the governor took Yahshúa to the common hall and gathered to him the whole band of soldiers.
2. And they stripped him and put on him a purple robe. And when they had plaited a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head and a reed in his right hand, and they bowed the knee before him and mocked him, saying, “Hail, King of the Judæans!”
3. Then came Yahshúa forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate said to them, “Behold the man!”
4. When the Chief Priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, “Crucify him, crucify him.” And Pilate said to them, “Take ye him and crucify him, for I find no fault in him.”
5. And they spit upon him and took the reed and smote him on the head. And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.
6. And as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Shimon, a Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him they laid the cross that he might bear it after Yahshúa. And there followed him a great company of people and of women, which also bewailed and lamented him.
7. But Yahshúa, turning to them, said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. For behold the days are coming in which they shall say, ‘Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the breasts which never gave suck.’
8. Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, ‘Fall on us!’ and to the hills, ‘Cover us!’ For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry.”
9. And there were also two other malefactors led with him to be put to death. And when they were come to a place called Calvary, and Golgotha, that is, to say, a place of ‘a skull’, there they crucified him and the malefactors—one on the right hand and the other on the left.
10. And it was the third hour [from sunrise] when they crucified him, and they gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall, and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink. And Yahshúa said, “Abba-Imma, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”
11. Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Yahshúa, took his raiment and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and his vesture also. Now the vesture was without seam, woven from the top throughout. They said therefore among themselves, “Let us not tear it but cast lots for it, [to decide] whose it shall be.”
12. That the scripture might be fulfilled, which said, “They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots.” These things therefore the soldiers did. And sitting down they watched him there.
13. And an inscription was also written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew: “This is the King of the Jews.”
14. This title then was read by many of the Judæans, for the place where Yahshúa was crucified was near to the city, and it was written in Hebrew and Greek and Latin. Then the Chief Priests of the Judæans said to Pilate, “Write not, ‘The King of the Jews’ but that he said, ‘I am the King of the Jews.’ Pilate answered, “What I have written, I have written.”
15. And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, “If you are the Mashíakh, save yourself and us. But the other answering rebuked him, saying, “Do you not fear Elohím, seeing you are in the same condemnation, and us indeed justly? For we receive the due reward of our deeds, but this man has done nothing amiss.
16. And he said to Yahshúa, “Master remember me when you come into your kingdom.” And Yahshúa said to him, “Truly I say to you, “Today shall you be with me in Paradise.”
17. And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads and saying, “You that would destroy the Miqdásh and build it in three days [and nights, {see 45:2}], save yourself. If you are the Son of Elohím, come down from the Cross.
18. Likewise also, the Chief Priests mocking him, while the Scribes and Elders said, “He saved a lamb, himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Yisraél, let him now come down from the cross and we will believe him. He trusted in Elohím, let Him deliver him now, if He will save him, for he said, “I am the Son of Elohím.”
19. The usurers and the dealers in animals and birds also cast the like things into his teeth, saying, “You who drives from the Miqdásh the traders in oxen and sheep and doves, are yourself but a sheep that is sacrificed?
20. Now from the Sixth hour [Mid-day] there was darkness over all the land to the Ninth hour [3 p.m.]. And some standing around, lit their torches, for the darkness was very great. And about the Sixth hour Yahshúa cried with a loud voice, “ĔLÍ, ĔLÍ, lame sabachthani?” That, is to say, “My ĔL, My ĔL, why have You forsaken me?”46)This led them to Psalm 22, where the Greek Septuagint and DSS Scroll agrees against the Masoretic Text in verse , “they pierced my hands and my feet.”
21. Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, “This man calls for Eliyáhu.” Others said, “He calls on the Sun.” The rest said, “Let it be. Let us see whether Eliyáhu will come to save him.”
22. Now there stood by the cross of Yahshúa his mother and his mother’s sister, Miriám, the wife of Cleophas, and Miriám Magdalena.
23. When Yahshúa therefore saw his mother and the disciple standing by whom he loved, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold your son!” And he said to the disciple, “Behold your mother!” And from that hour that disciple took her into his own home.
24. After this, Yahshúa knowing that all things were now accomplished that the scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I am athirst.” And from a vessel they filled a sponge with vinegar and put it upon hyssop and put it to his mouth.
25. And Yahshúa cried with a loud voice, saying, “Abba-Imma, into Your hand I commend my spirit.” 26. When Yahshúa had therefore received the vinegar, he cried aloud, “It is finished!” And he bowed his head and gave up the spirit. And it was the Ninth hour.
27. And behold there was great thunder and lightning, and the partition wall of the Miqdásh from which hung the veil, fell down, and was rent in two, and the earth did quake, and the rocks also were broken-up.
28. Now when the centurion and they that were with him watching Yahshúa saw the earthquake and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, “Truly this was a Son of Elohím!”
29. And many women were there, which followed from Galilee, ministering to them. And among them were Miriám the mother of Ya’aqóḅ and Yoseph, and the mother of Zebedee’s children [Ya’aqoḅ and Yoḥanán] and they lamented, saying, “The light of the world is hidden from our eyes; the Master, our Love, is crucified.”
30. Then the Judæans, because it was the preparation day [for them] and that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the Shabbáth, for that was a Paschal Sabbath,47)The Essene dates fell on the same day every year while the Judæan dates fluctuated within the week. Passover did not fall on the same day for the two groups that year, but one day apart. Yahshúa ate the Passover meal on Tuesday Night—a day prior to the Judæan Preparation Day when they got rid of all leavened bread, killed the Passover Lamb, and then ate their Passover meal later that night. Furthermore, Yahshua said that he would be in the heart of the earth for “three days and three nights” [see 45:2; Mt 12:40]. This places his resurrection on the weekly Shabbath—NOT on the first day of the week, Sunday. He appeared to Magdalena and the others on the first day of the week. Note also, that the Scriptures teaches the sequence of Day and Night, or more precisely distinguished as; Morning-Day-Evening-Night. Note also that an absolute 72-hours is not necessary. Part of the day counts as the whole day: WednesDay-Night, ThursDay-Night, FriDay-Night, and resurrected on Shabbath Day. besought Pilate that their legs might be broken and that they might be taken away.
31. Then came the soldiers and broke the legs of the two who were crucified with him. But when they came to Yahshúa, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs, but one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his heart and forthwith there came out blood and water.
32. And he that saw it bare record and his record is true, and he knows that he said true, that ye might believe. For these things were done that the Scriptures might be fulfilled—’A bone of him shall not be broken’ [Psalm 34:20; See also, Exodus 12:46; Numbers 9:12] and again, ‘In the midst of the week the Messiah shall be cut off.’48)See Daniel 9:24-27. Note: “Wednesday” is the 4th day and thus the middle of the Biblical 7-day week. This is also “in the midst of” [vs. 27] the final 7-year period of the 490 years spoken of in Daniel 9:24. Note: An Exact Fulfillment is not the same as a Parallel Fulfillment.

Chapter 83

The Burial of Yahshúa

1. NOW, when the evening was come, Yoséph of Arimathea, an honorable councilor, who also waited for the Kingdom of Elohím, came and went in boldly to Pilate and desired the body of Yahshúa. (He was a good man and just and had not consented to the council and their deed).
2. And Pilate marveled [wondering] if he were already dead, and calling the centurion to him, he asked him whether he had been any while dead. And when he knew it of the centurion, he gave the body to Yoséph. He came therefore and took the body of Yahshúa.
3. And also there came Nicodemus, who at the first came to Yahshúa by night and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred weight. Then they took the body of Yahshúa and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.
4. Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid. There laid they Yahshúa therefore, and it was about the beginning of the second watch when they buried him, because of the Jews’ preparation day [preceding the Festival Sabbath of Matsa], for the sepulchre was near at hand.
5. And Miriám Magdalena and the other Miriám, and Miriám the mother of Joses beheld where he was laid. There, at the tomb, they kept watch for three days and three nights [see 45:2].49)Cf. 20:5; 31:7; 43:8; 44:14; 45:2; 51:2, 9; 64:8, 10; 72:5; 76:10; 83:10; 84:9; 88:6
6. And the women also, who came with him from Galilee, followed, bearing lamps in their hands and beheld the sepulchre and how his body was laid, and they made lamentation over him.
7. And they returned and rested the next day, being a high day [the Festival Sabbath of Matsa], and on the day following they bought and prepared spices and ointments and waited for the end of the Sabbath.
8. Now the next day that followed, the Chief Priests and Pharisees came together to Pilate, saying, “Sir, we remember that deceiver said while he was yet alive, ‘After three days I will rise again’.
9. Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day [and night] be past, lest his disciples come by night and steal him away, and say to the people, ‘He is risen from the dead’, so the last error shall be worse than the first.”
10. Pilate said to them, “Ye have a watch, go your way, make it as sure as you can.” So, they went and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone and setting a watch till the third day [and night] should be past.

Chapter 84

The Resurrection of Yahshúa

1. NOW after the Sabbath was ended and it began to dawn, on the first day of the week, Miriám Magdalena came to the sepulchre, carrying the spices which she had prepared, and there were others with her.
2. And as they were going, they said among themselves, who shall roll away the stone from the door of the sepulchre? For it was great. And when they came to the place and looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away.
3. For behold there was a great earthquake; and the angel of YHWH descended from heaven, and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lighting and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of him the keepers shook and became as dead men.
4. And the angel answered and said to the women, “Fear ye not, for I know that ye seek Yahshúa, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said.
5. Come, see the place where the Master lay. And go quickly and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold he goes before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him; lo, I have told you.”
6. And they entered in and did not find the body of Yahshúa. Then she ran and came to Shimón Kepha and the other disciple whom Yahshúa loved, and said to them, “They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we do not know where they have laid him.”
7. And they ran and came to the sepulcher, and looking in, they saw the linen clothes lying, and the napkin that had been about his head not lying with the linen clothes but wrapped up in a place by itself.
8. And it came to pass as they were much perplexed, behold, two angels stood by them in glistening garments of white, and said to them, “Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, he is risen, and, behold, he goes before you into Galilee, there shall we see him.
9. Remember ye not how he spoke to you, when he was yet in Galilee, that the Son of Man should be crucified and that he would rise again after the third day?”50)Cf. 20:5; 31:7; 43:8; 44:14; 45:2; 51:2, 9; 64:8, 10; 72:5; 76:10; 83:10; 84:9; 88:6 And they remembered his words. And they went out quickly and fled from the sepulchre, for they trembled with amazement, and they were afraid
10. NOW at the time of the earthquake, the graves were opened; and many of the saints which slept arose, and came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the city and appeared to many.
11. But Miriám [Magdalena] stood without at the sepulchre weeping, and as she wept, she again stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre and saw two angels in white garments, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Yahshúa had lain. And they said to her, “Woman, why do you weep?”
12. She said to them, “Because they have taken away my Master, and I know not where they have laid him.” And when she had thus spoken, she turned herself back, and saw Yahshúa standing but did not know that it was Yahshúa.
13. Yahshúa said to her, “Woman, why do you weep? Whom do you seek?” She, supposing him to be the gardener, said to him, “Sir, if you have carried him from here, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.” Yahshúa said to her, “Miriám!” She turned herself and said to him, “Rabboni; which is to say, My Master.”
14. Yahshúa said to her, “Touch me not, for I am not yet ascended to my Father—One with my Mother, but go to my brethren, and say to them, ‘I ascend to my Parent and your Parent; to my Elohím and your Elohím.’”
15. And Miriám Magdalena came and told the disciples that she had seen the Master, and that he had spoken these things to her and commanded her to announce his resurrection from the dead.

Chapter 85

Yahshúa Risen Again Appears to Two at Emmaus

1. AND behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs. And they talked together of all these things which had happened.
2. And it happened, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Yahshúa himself drew near and went with them. But their eyes were held that they should not know him.
3. And he said to them, “What manner of communications are these that ye have with one another, as ye walk and are sad?”
4. And the one of them, whose name was Cleophas, answering, said to him, “Are you only a stranger in Jerusalem and have not known the things which happened there in these days?” And he said to them, “What things?”
5. And they said to him, “Concerning Yahshúa of Nazareth who was a Prophet mighty in deed and word before Elohím and all the people; and how the Chief Priests and our Rulers delivered him to be condemned to death and have crucified him. But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Yisraél; and beside all this, three days have passed since these things were done—[alluding to the ‘three days and three nights’ prophesy in 45:2]51)Cf. 20:5; 31:7; 43:8; 44:14; 45:2; 51:2, 9; 64:8, 10; 72:5; 76:10; 83:10; 84:9; 88:6
6. Yes, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre; and when they found not his body, they came saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, who said that he was alive.
7. And certain of them who were with us went to the sepulchre and found it even so as the women had said; but they did not see him.”
8. Then he said to them, “O fools and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken; Ought not Mashíakh to have suffered these things, and then to enter into his glory?”
9. And beginning at Moshéh and all the Prophets, he expounded to them in all the Scriptures, the things concerning himself.
10. And they drew near to the village where they went; and he made as though he would have gone further. But they constrained him, saying, “Abide, with us, for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent.” And he went in, to tarry with them.
11. And it happened as he sat at table with them, he took bread and the fruit of the vine, and gave thanks, blessed, and brake, and gave to them. And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.
12. And they said one to another, “Did not our hearts burn within us while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the Scriptures?” And they rose up the same hour and returned to Jerusalem, and found the twelve gathered together, and them that were with them, saying, “The Master is risen indeed, and has appeared to Shimón.”
13. And they told what things were done in the way and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.
14. Now while they had been going to Emmaus, some of the watch came into the city and showed to Caiaphas what things had been done.
15. And they assembled with the Elders and took council and said, “Behold, while the soldiers slept, some of his disciples came and took his body away; and is not Yoséph of Arimathea one if his disciples?
16. For this cause then did he beg the body from Pilate that he might bury it in his garden in his own tomb. Let us therefore give money to the soldiers, saying, say ye, ‘his disciples came by night and stole him away while we slept’. And if this come to the ears of the governor, we will persuade him, and secure you.”

Chapter 86

Yahshúa Appears in the Miqdásh and Blood Sacrifices Cease

1. THE same day, at the time of sacrifice in the Miqdásh there appeared among the dealers in animals and in birds, one clothed in white raiment, bright as light, and in his hand a whip of seven cords.
2. And at the sight of him, those who sold and bought fled in terror, and some of them fell as dead men, for they remembered how before his death Yahshúa had driven them away from the Miqdásh enclosure, in like manner.
3. And some declared that they had seen a spirit. And others that they had seen him who was crucified and that he had risen from the dead.
4. And the sacrifices ceased that day in the Miqdásh, for all were in fear, and none could be had to sell or to buy, but, rather, they let their captives go free.
5. And the Priests and Elders caused a report to be spread, that they who had seen it were intoxicated, and had seen nothing. But many affirmed that they had seen him with their own eyes, and felt on their backs the scourge, but were powerless to resist, for when some of the bolder among them put forth their hands, they could not seize the form which they beheld, nor grasp the whip which chastised them.
6. And from that time, these believed in Yahshúa, that he was sent from Elohím, to deliver the oppressed and free those that were bound. And they turned from their ways and sinned no longer.
7. To others he also appeared in love and mercy and healed them by his touch and delivered them from the hands of the persecutor. And many like things were reported of him, and many said, “Of a truth the Kingdom is come.”
8. And some of those who had slept and risen, when Yahshúa rose from the dead appeared, and were seen by many in the holy City, and great fear fell upon the wicked, but light and gladness came to the righteous in heart.

Chapter 87 

Yahshúa Appeared to His Disciples

1. THEN the same day, at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Judæans, Yahshúa came and stood in the midst, and said to them, “Peace to you.” But they were affrighted and supposed that they had seen a spirit.
2. And he said to them, “Behold, it is I myself, like as ye have seen me before. A spirit can indeed appear in flesh and bones as ye see me have. Behold my hands and my feet, handle and see.”
3. And when he had so said, he showed to them his hands and his heart. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Master.
4. For Thomas, called Didymus, one of the disciples, had said to them, “Unless I shall see in his hands the print of the nails and thrust my hand into his heart, I will not believe.” Then he said to Thoma, “Behold my hands, my heart, and my feet; reach here your hands, and be not faithless but believing.”
5. And Thomas answered and said to him, “Adoní and Ĕlí!” And Yahshúa said to him, “Thoma, because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are they that have not seen and yet have believed.”
6. Then said Yahshúa to them again, “Peace to you, as Abba-Immah has sent me, even so I you.” And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive ye the Ruach ha’Qodesh; proclaim the Good News, and announce ye to all nations; the resurrection of the Son of Man.
7. Teach ye the Holy Toráh of Love which I have delivered to you. And whosoever forsake their sins, they are remitted to them, and whosoever continue in their sins they are retained to them.
8. Baptize them who believe and repent, bless and anoint them, and offer ye the pure oblation of the fruits of the earth, which I have appointed to you for a memorial of me.
9. Lo, I have given my body and my blood to be offered on the cross, for the redemption of the world from the sin against love and from the bloody sacrifices and feasts of the past.
10. And ye shall offer the bread of life and the wine of salvation, for a pure oblation with incense, as it is written of me, and ye shall eat and drink thereof for a memorial, that I have delivered all who believe in me from the ancient bondage of your ancestors.
11. For they, making a god of their belly, sacrificed to their god the innocent creatures of the earth in place of the carnal nature within themselves.
12. And eating of their flesh and drinking of their blood to their own destruction, corrupted their bodies and shortened their days, even as the nations who did not know the truth, or who knowing it, have changed it into a lie.
13. As I send you, so send ye others also, to do these things in my name, and he laid his hands upon them.
14. In the like manner as the Apostles, so also, he ordained Prophets and Evangelists and Pastors, a consecrated Priesthood, and afterwards he laid his hand upon those whom they chose for Deacons, one for each of the fourfold twelve.
15. And these are for the rule and guidance of the Universal Assembly, that all may be perfected in their places in the unity of the body of the Mashíakh.”

Chapter 88

The Eighth Day after the Resurrection

1. AND after seven days again, his disciples were within the Upper Room; then came Yahshúa, the doors being shut, and stood in their midst and said, “Peace to you!” And he was known to them in the holy Memorial.
2. And he said to them. Love ye one another and all the creatures of Elohím. Yet I say to you, not all are men, who are in the form of man. Are they men or women in the image of Elohím whose ways are ways of violence, of oppression and wrong, who choose a lie rather than the truth?
3. No, truly, till they are born again, and receive the Spirit of Love and Wisdom within their hearts. Then only are they sons and daughters of Yisraél, and being of Yisraél, they are children of Elohím. And for this cause, I came into the world, and for this, I have suffered at the hands of sinners.
4. These are the words which I spoke to you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Toráh of Moshéh and in the Prophets, and in the Psalms, concerning me.”
5. And Yahshúa said, I stood in the midst of the world, and in the flesh I was seen and heard, and I found all men glutted with their own pleasures, and drunk with their own follies, and none I found hungry or thirsty for the wisdom which is of Elohím. My soul grieves over the sons and daughters of men because they are blind in their heart, and in their soul are they deaf and hear not my voice.”
6. Then he opened their understanding, that they might understand the Scriptures, and said to them, “Thus it is written, and thus it behooved the Mashíakh to suffer, and to rise from the dead after the third day.52)Cf. 20:5; 31:7; 43:8; 44:14; 45:2; 51:2, 9; 64:8, 10; 72:5; 76:10; 83:10; 84:9; 88:6 And that repentance and remission of sins should be proclaimed in my name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And ye are witnesses of these things.
7. And, behold, I send the promise of my Parent upon you, even of my Father—One with my Mother, Whom ye have not seen on the earth. For I say to you of a truth, as the whole world have been ruined by the sin and vanity of woman, so by the simplicity and truth of woman shall it be saved, even by you shall it be saved.
8. Rejoice therefore and be ye glad, for ye are more blessed than all who are on earth, for it is ye, my twelve thousand who shall save the whole world.
9. Again, I say to you when the great tyrant and all the seven tyrants began to fight in vain against the light, they knew not with whom or what they fought.
10. For they saw nothing beyond a dazzling light, and when they fought, they expended their strength one against another, and so it is.
11. For this cause, I took a fourth part of their strength, so that they might not have such power, and prevail in their evil deeds.
12. For by involution and evolution shall the salvation of all the world be accomplished—by the descent of spirit into matter, and the ascent of matter into spirit, through the ages.”

Chapter 89

Yahshúa Appeared at the Sea of Tiberias

1. AFTER these things Yahshúa showed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias, and on this wise showed he himself. There were together Shimón, Kepha, and Thoma, called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and Ya’aqóḅ and Yoḥanan and other two of his disciples.
2. And Kepha said to them, “I am going fishing.” They say to him, “We also are going with you.” They went forth and entered into a ship immediately, and that night they caught nothing. And when the morning was now come, Yahshúa stood on the shore, but the disciples knew not that it was Yahshúa.
3. Then Yahshúa said to them, “Children, have ye any food? They answered him, “No, Master, not enough for all; there is nothing but a small loaf, a little oil, and a few dried fruits.” And he said to them, “Let these suffice; come and dine.”
4. And he blessed them, and they ate and were filled, and there was a pitcher of water also, and he blessed it likewise, and lo, it was the fruit of the vine.
5. And they marveled and said, “It is the Master.” And none of the disciples did ask him. “Who are you?” knowing it was the Master.
6. This is now the sixth time that Yahshúa showed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead. So, when they had dined, Yahshúa said to Kepha, “Son of Jonas, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Master, you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.” He said to him again the second time, “Kepha, son of Jonas, do you love me?” He said to him, Yes Master, you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my sheep.”
7. He said to him the third time, “Kepha, son of Jonas, do you love me?” Kepha was grieved because he said to him the third time, do you love me? And he said to him, “Master, you know all things; you know that I love you.”
8. Yahshúa said to him, “Feed my Flock. Truly, Truly, I say to you, you are a rock from the rock, and on this rock will I build my Assembly, and I will raise you above my twelve to be my vicegerent upon earth for a center of unity to the Twelve, and another shall be called and chosen to fill your place among the Twelve, and you shall be the servant of servants and shall feed my rams, my sheep, and my lambs.
9. And yet another shall arise, and he shall teach many things which I have taught you already, and he shall spread the Gospel among the nations with great zeal. But the keys of the Kingdom will I give to those who succeed you in my Spirit and obeying my Toráh.
10. And again, I say to you. When you were young you girded yourself and walked where you willed, but when you shall be old, you shall stretch forth your hands and another shall gird you and carry you where you do not desire.” This spoke he, signifying by what death he should glorify Elohím.
11. And when he had spoken this, he said to him, “Follow me”. Then Kepha, turning about, saw the disciple whom Yahshúa loved following. Kepha seeing him, said to Yahshúa, “Master and what shall this man do?” Yahshúa said to him, “If I will that he tarries till I come, what is that to you? You follow me.”
12. Then this saying went abroad among the brethren, that disciple should not die: yet Yahshúa did not say to him, “He shall not die”, but, “If I will that he tarries till I come, what is that to you.”

Chapter 90

Section 10, Chapters 90 Thru 96

What Is Truth?

1. AGAIN the twelve were gathered together in the circle of palm trees, and one of them, even Thomas, said to the other, “What is Truth? For the same things appear different to different minds, and even to the same mind at different times. What, then, is Truth?”
2. And as they were speaking Yahshúa appeared in their midst and said, “Truth, one and absolute, is in Elohím alone, for no man, neither anybody of men, knows that which Elohím alone knows, who is the All in All. To men is Truth revealed, according to their capacity to understand and receive.
3. The One Truth has many sides, and one sees one side only, another sees another, and some see more than others, according as it is given to them.
4. Behold this crystal: how the one light its manifest in twelve faces, yea four times twelve, and each face reflects one ray of light, and one regards one face, and another, another, but it is the one crystal and the one light that shines in all.
5. Behold again: When one climbs a mountain and attaining one height, he said, This is the top of the mountain, let us reach it, and when they have reached that height, lo, they see another beyond it until they come to that height from which no other height is to be seen, if so be they can attain it.
6. So it is with Truth. I am the Truth and the Way and the Life and have given to you the Truth I have received from above. And that which is seen and received by one, is not seen and received by another. That which appears true to some, seems not true to others. They who are in the valley see not as those who are on the hilltop.
7. But to each, it is the Truth as the one mind sees it, and for that time, till a higher Truth shall be revealed to the same: and to the soul which receives higher light, shall more light be given. Wherefore, condemn not others, that ye be not condemned.
8. As ye keep the Holy Toráh of Love, which I have given to you, so shall the Truth be revealed more and more to you, and the Spirit of Truth which comes from above shall guide you, albeit through many wanderings, into all Truth, even as the fiery cloud guided the children of Yisraél through the wilderness.
9. Be faithful to the light ye have, till a higher light is given to you. Seek more light, and ye shall have abundantly; rest not, till ye find.
10. Elohím gives you all Truth, as a ladder with many steps, for the salvation and perfection of the soul, and the truth which seems today, ye will abandon for the higher truth of the morrow. Press ye to Perfection.
11. Whoso keeps the Holy Toráh which I have given, the same shall save their souls, however differently they may see the truths which I have given.
12. Many shall say to me, ‘Master, Master, we have been zealous for your Truth. But I shall say to them, ‘Nay, but, that others may see as ye see, and none other truth beside. Faith without love is dead. Love is the fulfilling of the Toráh.
13. How shall faith in what they receive profit them that hold it in unrighteousness? They who have love have all things, and without love there is nothing of worth. Let each hold what they see to be the truth in love, knowing that where love is not, truth is a dead letter and profits nothing.
14. There abide Goodness, and Truth, and Beauty, but the greatest of these is Goodness. If any have hatred to their fellows, and harden their hearts to the creatures of Elohím’s hands, how can they see Truth to salvation, seeing their eyes are blinded and their hearts are hardened to Elohím’s creation?
15. As I have received the Truth, so have I given it to you. Let each receive it according to their light and ability to understand and persecute not those who receive it after a different interpretation.
16. For Truth is the Might of Elohím, and it shall prevail in the end over all errors. But the Holy Toráh which I have given is plain for all, and just and good. Let all observe it for the salvation of their souls.”

Chapter 91

The Order of the Kingdom (Part I)

1. In that time after Yahshúa had risen from the dead, he tarried ninety days with Miriám his mother and Miriám Magdalena, who anointed his body, and Miriám Cleophas and the twelve, and their fellows, instructing them and answering questions concerning the kingdom of Elohím.
2. And as they sat at supper—when it was evening— Miriám Magdalena asked him, saying, “Master, will you now declare to us the Order of the Kingdom?”
3. And Yahshúa answered and said, “Truly I say to you, O Miriám, and to each of my disciples, The kingdom of Heaven is within you. But the time comes when that which is within shall be made manifest in the without, for the sake of the world.
4. Order indeed is good, and needful, but before all things is love. Love ye one another and all the creatures of Elohím, and by this shall all men know that ye are my disciples.”
5.AND one asked him, saying, “Master, do you desire that infants be received into the congregation in like manner as Moshéh commanded by circumcision?” And Yahshúa answered, “For those who are in Mashíakh there is no cutting of the flesh, nor shedding of blood.
6. Let the infant of eight days be presented to the Father-Mother, who is in Heaven, with prayer and thanksgiving, and let a name be given to it by its parents, and let the presbyter sprinkle pure water upon it, according to that which is written in the prophets, and let its parents see to it that it is brought up in the ways of righteousness, neither eating flesh, nor drinking strong drink, nor hurting the creatures which Elohím has given into the hands of man to protect.”
7. AGAIN one said to him, “Master, how do you desire when they grow up?” And Yahshúa said, “After seven years, or when they begin to know the evil from the good, and learn to choose the good, let them come to me and receive the blessing at the hands of the Presbyter [Elder] or the Angel [Bishop–Paqid] of the Assembly with prayer and thanksgiving, and let them be admonished to keep from flesh eating and strong drink, and from hunting the innocent creatures of Elohím, for shall they be lower than the horse or the sheep to whom these things are against nature?”
8. And again he said, “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.”
9. AND another asked him, saying, “When do you desire that they receive Baptism?” And Yahshúa answered, “After another seven years, or when they know the doctrine, and do that which is good, and learn to work with their own hands, and choose a craft whereby they may live, and are steadfastly set on the right way. Then let them ask for initiation, and let the Angel or Presbyter of the Assembly examine them and see if they are worthy, and let him offer thanksgiving and prayer, and bury them in the waters of separation, that they may rise to newness of life, confessing Elohím as their Father and Mother, vowing to obey the Holy Toráh, and keep themselves separate from the evil in the world.”
10. AND another asked him, “Master, at what time shall they receive the Anointing?” And Yahshúa answered, “When they have reached the age of maturity, and manifested in themselves the sevenfold gifts of the Spirit, then let the Angel offer prayer and thanksgiving and seal them with the seal of the Chrism. It is good that all be tried in each degree seven years. Nevertheless, let it be to each according to their growth in the love, and the wisdom of Elohím.

Chapter 92

The Order of the Kingdom (Part II)

1. AND another asked him, saying, “Master, do you desire that there be marriages among us as it is among the nations of earth?” And Yahshúa answered, saying, “Among some it is the custom that one woman may marry several men, who shall say to her, ‘Be you our wife and take away our reproach.’ Among others it is the custom, that one man may marry several women, and who shall say to him, ‘Be you our husband and take away our reproach’ for they who love feel it is a reproach to be unloved.
2. But to you my disciples, I show a better and more perfect way, even this, that marriage should be between one man and one woman, who by perfect love and sympathy are united, and that while love and life do last, howbeit in perfect freedom. But let them see to it that they have perfect health, and that they truly love each other in all purity, and not for worldly advantage only, and then let them betroth one to another before witnesses.
3. Then, when the time is come, let the Angel or Presbyter offer prayer and thanksgiving and bind them with the scarlet cord, if ye will, and crown them, and lead them thrice around the altar and let them eat of one bread and drink of one cup. Then holding their hands together, let him say to them in this wise, ‘Be ye two in one, blessed be the holy union, you whom Elohím does join together let no man put asunder, so long as life and love do last.’
4.And if they bear children, let them do so with discretion and prudence according to their ability to maintain them. Nevertheless to those who would be perfect and to whom it is given, I say, let them be as the Angels of Elohím in Heaven, who neither marry nor are given in marriage, nor have children, nor care for the morrow, but are free from bonds, even as I am, and keep and store up the power of Elohím within, for their ministry, and for works of healing, even as I have done. But the many cannot receive this saying, only they to whom it is given.”
5. AND another asked him, saying, “Master, in what manner shall we offer the Holy Oblation?” And Yahshúa answered, saying, “The oblation which Elohím loves in secret is a pure heart. But for a Memorial of worship offer ye unleavened bread, mingled wine, oil and incense. When ye come together in one place to offer the Holy Oblation, the lamps being lighted, let him who presides, even the Angel of the Assembly, or the Presbyter, having clean hands and a pure heart, take from the things offered, unleavened bread and mingled wine with incense.
6. And let him give thanks over them and bless them, calling upon the Father-Mother in Heaven to send their Ruach ha’Qodesh that it may come upon and make them to be the Body and Blood, even the Substance and Life of the Eternal, which is ever being broken and shed for all.
7. And let him lift it up toward Heaven and pray for all, even for those who are gone before, for those who are yet alive, and for those who are yet to come. As I have taught you, so pray ye, and after this let him break the bread and put a fragment in the cup, and then bless the holy union, and then let him give to the faithful, saying after this manner, This is the body of the Mashíakh even the substance of Elohím (ever being broken and shed, for you and for all), to eternal life. As ye have seen me do, so do ye also, in the spirit of love, for the words I speak to you, they are spirit and they are life.”

Chapter 93

The Order of the Kingdom (Part III)

1. AND another spoke, saying, “Master, if one has committed a sin, can a man remit or retain his sin?” And Yahshúa said, “Elohím forgives all sin to those who repent, but as ye sow, so also must ye reap; Neither Elohím nor man can remit the sins of those who do not repent nor forsake their sins; nor yet retain the sins of those who forsake them. But if one being in the spirit sees clearly that any repent and forsake their sins, such may truly say to the penitent, Your sins are forgiven you, for all sin is remitted by repentance and amendment and they are loosed from it, who forsake it and bound to it, who continue it.
2. Nevertheless the fruits of the sin must continue for a season, for as we sow so must we reap, for Elohím is not mocked, and they who sow to the flesh shall reap corruption, they who sow to the spirit shall reap life, everlasting. Wherefore, if any forsake their sins and confess them, let the Presbyter say to such in this wise, ‘May Elohím forgive you your sins, and bring you to everlasting life. All sin against Elohím is forgiven by Elohím, and sin against man by man.”
3. AND another asked him, saying, “If any be sick among us, shall we have power to heal even as you do?” And Yahshúa answered, “This power comes of perfect chastity and of faith. They who are born of Elohím keep their seed within them.
4. Nevertheless, if any be sick among you, let them send for the Presbyters of the Assembly that they may anoint them with oil of olive in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith, and the going out of power, with the voice of thanksgiving, shall raise them up, if they are not detained by sin, of this, or a former life.”
5. AND another asked him, saying, “Master, how shall the Holy Assembly be ordered and who shall minister therein?” And Yahshúa answered, “When my disciples are gathered in my name let them choose from among themselves true and faithful men and women, who shall be ministers and counselors in temporal things and provide for the necessities of the poor, and those who cannot work, and let these look to the ordering of the goods of the Assembly, and assist at the Oblation, and let these be your deacons, with their helps.
6. And when these have given proof, of their ministry, let them choose from them, those who have spiritual gifts, whether of guidance, or of prophecy, or of preaching and of teaching and healing, that they may edify the flock, offer the holy Oblation and minister the mysteries of Elohím and let these be your Presbyter, and their helps.
7. And from these who have served well in their degree let one be chosen who is counted most worthy and let him preside over all and he shall be your Angel. And let the Angel ordain the Deacons and consecrate the Presbyters—anoint them and laying their hands upon them and breathing upon them that they may receive the Ruach ha’Qodesh for the office to which they are called. And as for the Angel, let one of the higher ministry anoint and consecrate him, even one of the Supreme Council.
8. For as I send Apostles and Prophets, so also I send Evangelists and Pastors—the eight and forty pillars of the tabernacle—that by the ministry of the four, I may build up and perfect my Assembly, and they shall sit in Jerusalem a holy congregation, each with his helper and deacon, and to them shall the scattered congregations refer in all matters pertaining to the Assembly. And as light comes, so shall they rule and guide and edify and teach my holy Assembly. They shall receive light from all, and to all shall they give more light.
9. And forget not with your prayers and supplications intercessions and giving of thanks, to offer the incense, as it is written in the last of your prophets, saying, ‘From the rising of the sun to the setting of the same, incense shall be offered to My name in all places with a pure oblation, for My Name shall be great among the Nations’.
10. For truly I say to you, incense is the memorial of the intercession of the saints within the veil, with words that cannot be uttered.”   [Or, that cannot be articulated in common speech.]

Chapter 94

The Order of the Kingdom (Part IV)

1. AND another asked him, saying, “Master, how will you that we bury our dead?” And Yahshúa answered, “Seek ye council of the Deacons in this matter, for it concerns the body only. Truly, I say to you, there is no death to those who believe in the life to come. Death, as ye deemed it, is the door to life, and the grave is the gate to resurrection, for those who believe and obey. Mourn ye not, nor weep for them that have left you, but rather rejoice for their entrance into life.
2. As all creatures come forth from the unseen into this world, so they return to the unseen, and so will they come again till they be purified. Let the bodies of them that depart be committed to the elements, and the Father-Mother, who renews all things, shall give the Angels charge over them, and let the Presbyter pray that their bodies may rest in peace, and their souls awake to a joyful resurrection.
3. There is a resurrection from the body, and there is a resurrection in the body. There is a raising out of the life of the flesh, and there is a falling into the life of the flesh. Let prayer be made for those who are gone before, and for those that are alive, and for those that are yet to come, for all are One family in Elohím. In Elohím they live and move and have their being.
4. The body that ye lay in the grave, or that is consumed by fire, is not the body that shall be, but they who come shall receive other bodies, yet their own, and as they have sown in one life, so shall they reap in another. Blessed are they who have worked righteousness in this life, for they shall receive the crown of life.”
5. AND another asked him, saying, “Master, under the Toráh, Moshéh clothed the priests with garments of beauty for their ministration in the Miqdásh. Shall we also clothe them to whom we commit the ministry of sacred things as you have taught us?” And Yahshúa answered, “White linen is the righteousness of the Saints, but the time truly comes when Tzión shall be desolate, and after the time of her affliction is past, she shall arise and put on her beautiful garments, as it is written.
6. But seek ye first the kingdom of righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. In all things seek simplicity and give not occasion to vain glory. Seek ye first to be clothed with charity, and the garment of salvation and the robe of righteousness.
7. For what does it profit if ye have not these? As the sound of brass and tinkling of cymbal are ye, if ye have not love. Seek ye righteousness and love and peace, and all things of beauty shall be added to you.”
8. AND yet another asked him, saying, “Master, how many of the rich and mighty will enter into life and join us who are poor and despised. How, then, shall we carry on the work of Elohím in the regeneration of mankind?” And Yahshúa said, “This also is a matter for the Deacons of the Assembly in council with the Elders.
9. But when my disciples are come together on the Shabbath at evening or in the morning of the first day of the week, let them each bring an offering of a tithe, or the tithe of a tithe of their increase, as Elohím does prosper them, and put it in the treasury, for the maintenance of the Assembly and the ministry, and the works thereof. For I say to you, it is more blessed to give than to receive.
10. So shall all things be done, decently and in order. And the rest the Spirit will set in order who proceeds from the Father-Mother in heaven. I have instructed you now in first principles, and, lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the Age.

Chapter 95

The Ascension

1. AND Yahshúa, after he had showed himself alive to his disciples after his resurrection, and sojourned with them for ninety days53)This may refer to “[the] ninety days” or the 3-months of the spring season, that begins with the spring equinox (March 21st) and ends with the summer solstice (June 21st)., teaching and speaking of the Kingdom and the things pertaining to the Kingdom of Elohím, and had finished all things that he had to do, led forth the Twelve with Miriám Magdalena and Yoseph his father and Miriám his mother, and the other holy women as far as Bethany to a mountain called Olivet, where he had appointed them.
2. And when they saw him as he stood amid them, they worshipped him, but some doubted. And Yahshúa spoke to them, saying, “Behold, I have chosen you from among men, and have given you the Toráh and the Word of Truth.
3. I have set you as the light of the world, and as a city that cannot be hid. But the time comes when darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people, and the enemies of truth and righteousness shall rule in my name, and set up a kingdom of this world, and oppress the peoples, and cause the enemy to blaspheme, putting for my doctrines the opinions of men, and teaching in my name that which I have not taught, and darkening much that I have taught by their traditions.
4. But be of good cheer, for the time will also come when the truth they have hidden shall be manifested, and the light shall shine, and the darkness shall pass away, and the true kingdom shall be established which shall be in the world, but not of it, and the Word of righteousness and love shall go forth from the Center, even the holy city of Mount Tzión, and the Mount which is in the land of Egypt shall be known as an altar of witness to YHWH.
5.And now I go to my Parent and your Parent, my Elohím and your Elohím. But ye, tarry in Jerusalem, and abide in prayer, and after seven days ye shall receive power from on high, and the promise of the Ruach ha’Qodesh shall be fulfilled to you, and ye shall go forth from Jerusalem to all the Tribes of Yisraél, and to the uttermost parts of the earth.”
6. And having said these things, he lifted his pure and holy hands and blessed them. And it came to pass that while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and a cloud, as the sun in brightness, received him out of their sight, and as he went up some held him by the feet and others worshipped him, falling to the earth on their faces.
7. And while they gazed steadfastly into heaven, behold two stood by them in white apparel, and said, “Ye men of Yisraél, why stand ye gazing into the heaven; this same Yahshúa who is taken from you in a cloud, and as ye have seen him go into heaven, so shall he come again to the earth.”
8. Then they returned to Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives, which is a Sabbath day’s journey from the city.54)0.7 of a mile was the limit permitted for traveling on the Shabbath. And as they returned, they missed Miriám Magdalena, and they looked for her, but found her not. And some of the disciples said, “The Master has taken her, and they marveled and were in great awe.”
9. Now it was midsummer when Yahshúa ascended into heaven, and he had not yet attained his fiftieth year, for it was needful that [the] ‘seven times seven years’ should be fulfilled in his life.55)Yahshúa died in the midst of the final seven-year period of Daniel 9:24-27. There it is stated that “Seven Sevens are determined upon your people and upon the qodesh city [Jerusalem]. “Seven Sevens” means 7-Weeks of Years, which equals 490 years. After 6-Weeks of Years (483 Years) a final 7-year window would open. In this window, Messiah would be anointed, as well as, be “cut off” (killed). The last seven of the sevens was fulfilled in his life. The six matters to be accomplished in that time frame were accomplished through his life, death, and resurrection. One will also see another allusion from Daniel 9:27, “in the midst of the week”. Noting that there are four levels of interpretation recognized in Judaism, each one legitimate within its own parameters, not only was this in the midst of the final seven years, he died on Wednesday, the midst of the seven-day Biblical week. See GHT 82:32. See also, our exposition of Daniel 9:24-27 in our writing, called, “New Covenant Israel: The Transitional Generation-From Promise to Reality”. Yahshúa was 43 years old when he died, according to GHT. This would be “within” or “in the midst of” the final 7-year window. (Counting from the starting point of the 490 years, the decree of Cyrus in 457 BC. See our chart.
10. Yea [also], that he might be perfected by the suffering of all experiences, and be an example to all, to children and parents, to the married and the celibates, to youth and those of full age, yea, and to all ages and conditions of mortal life.  

Chapter 96

The Pouring Out of The Spirit

1. AND as the disciples were gathered together in the upper room when they returned from the Mount, they all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, and their number was about one hundred and twenty.
2. And in that day, Ya’aqóḅ stood up and said; “Men and brethren, it is known to you how the Master, before he left us, chose Kepha to preside over us and watch over us in his name; and how it is necessary that one of those who have been with us and a witness to his resurrection be chosen and appointed to take his place.
3. And they chose two, called Barsabas and Matthias, and they prayed and said, “You YHWH, who knows the hearts of all men, show which of these two you have chosen to take part in this Apostleship from which you do raise your servant Kepha to preside over us.”
4. And they gave forth their lots, and the lot fell upon Matthias, and the Twelve received him, and he was numbered among the Apostles.
5. Then Yoḥanan and Ya’aqóḅ separated Kepha from their number by laying on of hands, that he might preside over them in the name of the Master, saying, “Brother, be you as a hewn stone, six-squared. Even you, Petros, which are Petra, bearing witness to the Truth on every side.”
6. And to the Apostles were given staffs to guide their steps in the ways of truth, and crowns of glory withal; and to the Prophets burning lamps to show light on the path and censers with fire; and to the Evangelists the Book of the Holy Toráh to recall the people to the first principles; and to the Pastors were given the cup and platter to feed and nourish the flock.
7. But to none was given anything that was not given to all, for all were one priesthood under the Mashíakh, as their Master, Great High Priest in the Miqdásh of Elohím; and to the Deacons were given baskets that they might carry therein the things needful for the holy worship. And the number was about one hundred and twenty, Kepha presiding over them.
8. AND when the third day had fully come, they were all with one accord in the one place, and as they prayed, there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and the room in which they were assembled was shaken, and it filled the place.
9. And there appeared cloven tongues of flame like fire and sat upon the head of each of them. And they were all filled with the Ruach ha’Qodesh and began to speak with tongues as the Ruach gave them utterance. And Kepha stood up and preached the Toráh of Mashíakh to the multitude of all nations and tongues who were gathered together by the report of what had been seen and heard, each man hearing in his own tongue wherein he was born.
10. And of them that listened there were gathered to the Assembly that day, three thousand souls, and they received the Holy Toráh, repented of their sins, and were baptized and continued steadfastly in the Apostles’ fellowship and worship, and the Oblation and prayers.
11. And they who believed gave up their possessions and had all things in common and abode together in one place, showing the love and the goodness of Elohím to their brothers and sisters and to all creatures, and working with their hands for the common good.
12. And from these there were called twelve to be Prophets with the Apostles, and twelve to be Evangelists and twelve to be Pastors, and their Helps were added to them, and Deacons of the Universal Assembly, and they numbered one hundred and twenty. And thus, was the Tabernacle of Dawíd set up, with living men filled with goodness, even as the Master had shown to them.
13. The Assembly in Jerusalem was given Ya’aqóḅ, the brother of the Master for its President and Angel, and under him four and twenty priests in a fourfold ministry, and helpers and deacons also. And after six days many came together, and there were added six thousand men and women who received the holy Toráh of Love, and they received the word with gladness.
14. AND as they gathered together on the Day of the Master after the Sabbath was past, and were offering the holy Oblation, they missed Miriám and Yoséph, the parents of Yahshúa. And they made search but did not find them.
15. And some of them said, “Surely the Master has taken them away, as he did Magdalena. And they were filled with awe and sung praises to Elohím.” 16. And the Ruach of Elohím came upon the Apostles and the Prophets with them and, remembering what the Master had taught them, with one voice they confessed and praised Elohím, saying:

17.“Praise to YAH, the One Elohím:56)Portions of this section is somewhat confused, probably redacted by the editors. Therefore, along with the editors of “The Gospel of the Nazirenes” translation by Alan Wauters and Rick Van Wyhe, we see fit to adjust it, following their translation closely. As in other places, unfortunately, they do not reference their source recension of this text. The original text was first publicized by Rev. Ousley in small portions and later released by editors, who may have put it together as a whole. It seems they attempted to incorporate the ideas contained in verse 25. See also Chapter 64.
the Infinite Hidden Fount, the Unbegotten Eternal Parent:
Of Whom are all things invisible and visible: Who Was, Who Is, and Who Will Be.

18.One LORD of Lords—the LIGHT of Lights begotten, Who sent forth the first begotten
that every soul may be perfected by the ascent of the soul into the spirit and the descent
of the spirit into the soul, that comes from the Highest Heavens, that is embodied of purity
in Yahshúa and every Mashíkha of the Most High that is born and teaches the Way of Life,
suffers under world rulers, and is executed and buried; who rises and ascends into glory—
From there giving light and life to all.

20.Praise to You, the Sevenfold Spirit of Elohím, the Life-Giver,
Who came upon Yahshúa and all that are faithful to the Light within;
Who dwells in the Assembly, the true Yisraél;
Who comes ever into the world and lights every soul that seeks;
Who gives the Toráh-Law; Who speaks through the prophets of every age and clime.

21.Sustain us in One Holy Universal Assembly; the Witness to all truth,
the Receiver and Giver of the same; Begotten of the Spirit and Fire of Elohím;
Nourished by the waters, seeds and fruits of Earth, which by the Spirit of Life,
at-one humanity with the Toráh-Law,
restoring the partakers of Divine Life and Substance.

22.We shall teach The Way to prepare your children for the indwelling Universal Mashíkha,
and the Kingdom of the Highest Heavens within their hearts,
wherein dwells righteousness on the Altar of the YHWH.
From whence those in ministry proceed to teach all truth and the pure oblation of praise.

23. As in the inner so in the outer: as in the great so in the small.
As above, so below: as in the Highest Heavens so on Earth.
We will teach the purification of the soul through many births and experiences,
the resurrection from the ways of them that sleep to return to Life Everlasting
in the Ages of Ages and rest in YHWH forever.—Amein.”


24. And as the smoke of the incense arose, there was heard the sound as of many bells, and a multitude of the heavenly host praising Elohím and saying:
25. “Glory, honour, praise, and worship be to Elohím; the Father, Spouse, and Son: One with the Mother, Bride and Maid: From Whom proceeds the Eternal Spirit; By whom are all created things. From the Ages of Ages. Now and to the Ages of Ages—Amein—HalleluYah, HalleluYah, HalleluYah.”
26. And if any man take from, or add, to the words of this Gospel, or hide, as under a bushel, the light thereof, which is given by the Ruach through us, the twelve witnesses chosen of Elohím, for the enlightenment of the world to salvation: Let him be Anathema Maranatha, until the coming of Mashíakh Yahshu-Maryá, our Saviour, with all the Holy Saints [Qedoshim].
27. For them that believe, these things are true. For them that believe not, they are as an idle tale. But to those with perceiving minds and hearts, regarding the spirit rather than the letter which kills, they are spiritual truths.
28. For the things that are written are true, not because they are written, but rather they are written because they are true, and these are written that ye may believe with your hearts and proclaim with your mouths to the salvation of many. Amein.

Here ends the Holy Gospel of the Perfect Life of Yahshu-Marya, the Mashíakh, the Son of Dawíd after the Flesh, the Son of Elohím after the Spirit. Glory be to Elohím by Whose power and help it has been written.

1 My own notes will be in footnote form. The word Lection has been changed to Chapter. Names have been edited closer to Hebrew/Aramaic pronunciation: Moshéh for Moses, Yahshúa for Jesus/Iesus, etc. My interpretations & clarifications will be [bracketed] in the text.
2 The original uses Iesu-Maria / Jesu-Maria. It should actually be, Yahshu-Maryá. Yahshúa is pronounced Yâhwshúa: Yahw as in yawn spoken quickly and accented on shú, as noted with the accent mark. Yahshu-Maryá means, Yahshúa The Master. Marya, in Aramaic, is the emphatic form of Mar = THE Master, as in, The Lord of Lords. This is from Psalm 110:1, “YHWH said unto my Lord…” Thus we have the NT words, “The Lord Yahshúa The Mashíakh/The Christ/The Anointed”.
3 One will recognize that The Author of the Gospel of John Chapter One condenses and expands upon this Prologue.
4 Goldenberg, Robert; The Origins of Judaism: From Canaan to the Rise of Islam; Cambridge University Press, New York, 2007, p. 121.  “The Roman Senate formally recognized Herod as king of Judaea; if he could only recapture the kingdom from its Parthian occupiers, it was his to rule. It took Herod three years (and the help of a large Roman force) to accomplish this task, but by 37 [BCE] he was master of Judaea. To enhance his legitimacy, he married Mariamme, a Hasmonaean princess, and arranged for her younger brother to become high priest as Aristoboulus III. Herod ruled for over thirty years, until his death in 4 BCE…He went down in history as Herod the Great.” The Herodian Period lasted until about 68 AD.
5 One will recognize that the Original Gospel of Luke takes this material from this Nazarite Gospel.
6 YHWH / IAUE, Yahweh or Yahu-weh. Hebrew Consonant-Vowels reflected by Greek by early Jewish & Christian Testimony. This version was originally written as IOVA. In early Hebrew and English, the “V” was a “U” or “W” sound. The “A” is “eh” as in Apple, and not Ape.
7 The root of this may be that of a village of Essene Nazirites. This may have also been identical with Nasarites/Nasareans/Nazareans.
8 Miri-Am: Miry = bitterness, Am = people, = bitterness of the people of Israel. In Hebrew, it is spelled Miriam and in Greek and Aramaic, Mariam and shortened to Mary in English. The name originated with Moshéh’s sister, who was named after the bitterness of the Egyptian bondage. There are several called Miriám connected with Yahshúa in the Gospel within his family and inner circle, as it was a common name. Migdal means tower. Magdala was a Galilean town north of Tiberias. Magdalena was a towering woman. Magdalena may be the name given her by Master Yahshúa (Micah 4:8). Magdalena becomes a symbol of the bride/wife of Yahshúa, which is his Qahal or Qahillah in the heavens and earth (Ekklesia/Community/Assembly/ Congregation/Church).
9 This suggests a purer Essene-Nazirite practice than is recorded in the Pentateuch. Perhaps, grapes and a “little wine” or a diluted wine was not a part of the original prohibition. Drunkenness was the real issue and so they abstained from “strong drink”. Perhaps the original practices stemmed back before the redaction activity of the Aharonic-Zadokite Priests who created a Tetrateuch in Babylon. Numbers 6:2 and Judges 13:7, before its merger with Deuteronomy to create a Pentateuch. In Chapter 1:5, Yoḥanan, and in 2:7, Yahshúa, were consecrated as Nazirites, and it is testified in other early sources that Ya’aqoḅ (James) was also a lifelong Nazirite.
10 Midwinter (in the midst of winter) accords with Eastern Orthodox celebration of January 6th for the birth of Yahshúa instead of December 25th of the Romans. However, this may simply indicate when Syria’s taxation began. And then, sometime later in the year, the taxation began in the Galilee and Judæa, after which, Yoseph with Miriam headed to Beth-Leḥem. If we mark Yahshua’s conception on the Winter Solstice on Dec. 21, this yields a 9-Month period until his birth on Sukkot 1, beginning the 7-Day Festival of Tabernacles, and his Circumcision on the Additional 8th Day, which was added by Ya’aqoḅ (Jubilees 32:27, aka, Shemini Atzeret, & Simchat Torah). And, this 365th Day added to the 364 Days of the Qumran DSS Calendar. The Mayans celebrate this 365th Day as “the day out of time” in the summer, and other cultures celebrated it on other days.
11 Love and Wisdom refers to the male-female polarities perfected within him; so that, in him, this is a dual Messiahship that is also symbolized with his eventual bride, Miriám Magdalena. This duality also symbolizes his people as his bride-wife. Magdalena’s role, hinted at in this Gospel, would be hidden until the third age. Miriám means ‘bitterness of the people’. Note: there are 3-Ages in view: their present age which was ending in that generation (with the destruction of the Temple), the age that was to come (the present age), and then in another “age to come” (that which we presently anticipate), comes the “sweetness” of the people when the fullness of the prophetic promises will be manifested (vss. 15-17). The “age to come” began with the destruction of the Herodian Temple in 70 AD. The creation will be liberated into the hands of the “sons of Elohím” in another “age to come”. See 4:5; 32:9.
12 This grayed portion in vss. 5, 6, 11-21 may have been a revelation of condensed details that Rev. Ousley started but never fully integrated into the narrative so as to give a clear chronology. It creates issues. The authors of “The Gospel of the Nazirenes” (1997) must have felt this way as they altered the order in this chapter. Is this an enigma to unravel? Or, a matter allegory, symbolism, and recapitulations of these time-periods or other time-periods? 1) His first trip to India, 2) He returned and was married for 7-years, 3) Went to Egypt for 7-years and was Ordained as an Essene Rabbi, 4) He returned and taught , 5) He was Baptized by John and begotten of God, 6) He went into the Desert, symbolized by the 40-Days being tempted in the Desert, 7) He returned, a wedding in Cana and a Synagogue sermon in Nazara/Nazareth. We will attempt a possible integration within the text.
13 This 18th year of his age may not have been referring to his birth-age, but rather to the Herodian Temple Era/Age, referred to in verse five. The Herodian Temple was begun in 18 or 17 BC.
14 The marriage to this Miriám, preceded the later marriage to Miriám Magdalena.
15 age 25
16 …having been ordained while in Egypt in the 30th year of his age-era. Timeline correction; see chart. In Lection 8:8, in agreement with Luke 3:23, the text says that he began to be 30 years of age at his baptism by Yohanan. However, given the timeline of this gospel with these recovered episodes of his life (known as ‘the silent years’), this is not possible. For, when he returned to Nazareth, he taught as an accepted Rabbi (6:12) before ministering in eastern countries for several more years. Yahshúa finished his Toráh studies in Israel or perhaps in Egypt where he did advanced studies for 7-years. In Egypt, the “30th“ Year of the Herodian Temple Era began, and this is likely when he was ordained and began his ordained ministry, rather than later at his baptismal consecration and anointing as the King of Righteousness (Melchizedek & Mashíakh) in Chapter 8. Apparently, the tradition that he began his ministry at 30 years of age, was imported into Luke 3:23, as if it coincided with his baptism. Having recovered and inserted the lost information contained in 6:5-21 with an eye on Luke, Rev. Ousley failed to reset his ordination at age 30 into its proper place here in 6:11-12, leaving it in 8:8. See our timeline chart. It seems though, that he was given only a general view of the records in these matters. Others claimed that he went to India first at age 13, See the Aquarian Gospel. If so, this would place “His Childhood Miracles” section having occurred in India. One runs into problems with chronology when various episodes have been condensed and/or combined. One must live with ambiguities! Sometimes this is a deliberate sign of Allegory!
17 A Chronological Integration from chapter 6:12b
18 The 10th Month according to Judæan Establishment reckoning who began their civil new year in the 7th month, in contrast to the Essenes.
19 Confused passage. Remove the phrase “in the same” in the original text and the confusion dissipates. Or, possibly, “in the name” would remedy it.
20 This is not the Bethany near the Mt of Olives. Rev. Ousley simply copied Bethabara from the KJV. Now recognized as a copyists edit originating from Origen.
21 In Luke it says about his 30th year. Allegorically, 30 connects him with the Levites who served from 30-50 years of age. More exactly, his 32nd Year.
22 To counter that argument, into the original Gospel of Luke (3:23-38) was inserted a genealogy which declared that Eli (by the law of Yaḅum marriage) actually fathered Yoseph (in place of Ya’aqob who died) and therefore, establishing his biological lineage through Nathan but his legal lineage thru Solomon. Thus, the GHT lineage in verse nine above confirms the lineages in Matthew and Luke.
23 Both Yoseph and Miriam are of the House of David (GHT 4:2). Some incorrectly think the Lukan lineage was that of Miriám.
24 “… who were the children of Dawíd and Bathshéḅa…” In accord with the ‘The Gospel of James’ and ‘The Aquarian Gospel’ this refers to Miriam’s parents. She is biologically descended from David through Solomon (not Nathan) and all three genealogical lists are in harmony and testify of Yahwshua’s Davidic legitimacy however one wants to determine it (GHT 4:2). Miriam was also a ‘close-relative’ of the Aharonic Elisheḅa, through marriage (Luke 1:5, 36).
25 This may symbolize his Testing when he journeyed to the East; Note the Desert mentioned in 6:14, 18, 21. It is also mentioned in 6:11 concerning his trip to Egypt.
26 His departure into the desert/wilderness may symbolize his travels into the East as noted in 6:13.
27 “All Holy” – “All (perfect) Parent”: “The One Who is Completely and Absolutely Separate and Other”, Who is, nevertheless, the perfect Parent—a perfect Father and Mother in one person.
28 Added to the text in italics, or. This is truer to the next phrase in the passage.

30 The original word was Beatitude.
31 Or, Unrighteous Mammon. This term holds a negative connotation as a selfish desire for wealth tending toward covetousness and idolatry. As the Apostle Sha’ul stated, “the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.”
32 The Pharisees (P’rushim) were a Separatist Party who attempted to separate themselves from the ritual impurity of other folk and tended to become elitist and seekers of power. They developed additional practices to ensure their purity—these practices often created conflicts with the actual teachings of the Original Toráh. Because of this, Yahshúa was at odds with them much of the time and some sought his demise.
33 EL + ELAH = ELOAH, two in one. ELOHÍM is plural and speaks of the same, two in one and can also speak of many. It can serve as a plural of majesty. It depends upon the context.
34 GHT 76:13 (Jn 17:4; 19:30) “I have glorified You on earth, I have finished the work You gave me to do.” GHT 82:26   When Yahshúa had therefore received the vinegar, he cried aloud, “It is finished” and he bowed his head and gave up the spirit. And it was the ninth hour.
35 Mt 23:1-3 Among these Soferím/Scribes, were those, who in some way, were offshoots associated with DSS Qumran Zadokians, who had been derogatively nicknamed, Herodians (Mk 3:6; 12:13; Mt 22:16). Yahshúa, as a Carmelite Essene rather than a Qumran Zadokite, broke from their extremist views and became a target for assassination. (Some believe Essene to be from Aramaic, Assaya, meaning healing or healers or Therapeuts (See Revelation 22:2 …the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. (Healing in both: Greek: Therapeia; Aramaic: אסיֻותָא Asyutho). Philo also connects Essenes with an alternate title with the word “holy” or “holy ones/saints” (In Hebrew: Qedoshím), as does the New Testament. Others believe Essene to be a hybrid word deriving from the word Ḥasidim(pious kind ones) or Osseans (doers of the law) Maybe all of these words describe them. See Josephus, “Wars…” 2.8.13.

37 This verse was adjusted as it was also in “The Gospel of the Nazirenes”, though not in the same way.
38 Daniel 7:13 speaks of this “Bar-Enosh” which Yahshúa testifies is a term that means Son & Daughter of Humanity. This implies that the Mashiakh is a duality of Son & Daughter, which translates to Yahshúa and Magdalena (though her role is still muted & hidden in this Gospel account and nearly eliminated in the canonical gospels). See, The Gospel of the Beloved Companion: The Complete Gospel of Mary Magdalene, Jehanne de Quillan, © 2010. Also see, The Holy Megillah: The Nasarean Bible of the Essene Way @ www.essene.org/blog/.

39, 40, 44, 49, 50, 51, 52 Cf. 20:5; 31:7; 43:8; 44:14; 45:2; 51:2, 9; 64:8, 10; 72:5; 76:10; 83:10; 84:9; 88:6
41 Irretrievably dead, being that four days was considered the length of time that the soul can normally linger in its connection to and around the body. See verse 18.
42 Given the Y’Shua’s words elsewhere concerning them, this directive is odd. It is to be noted, that there are manuscripts that read “he” (speaking of Mosheh) rather than “they” (the Scribes and Pharisees).
43 According to our calculations, this was not the 46th year but was the 49th year. If we are correct, they were off three years; Or, as in Torah reasoning, we understand that all things are not arranged in an exact chronological order.
45 The name of Yisrael is broken down thusly: Yi-S`ara-ĔL: He-will rule as a Prince-with/for ĔL.
46 This led them to Psalm 22, where the Greek Septuagint and DSS Scroll agrees against the Masoretic Text in verse , “they pierced my hands and my feet.”
47 The Essene dates fell on the same day every year while the Judæan dates fluctuated within the week. Passover did not fall on the same day for the two groups that year, but one day apart. Yahshúa ate the Passover meal on Tuesday Night—a day prior to the Judæan Preparation Day when they got rid of all leavened bread, killed the Passover Lamb, and then ate their Passover meal later that night. Furthermore, Yahshua said that he would be in the heart of the earth for “three days and three nights” [see 45:2; Mt 12:40]. This places his resurrection on the weekly Shabbath—NOT on the first day of the week, Sunday. He appeared to Magdalena and the others on the first day of the week. Note also, that the Scriptures teaches the sequence of Day and Night, or more precisely distinguished as; Morning-Day-Evening-Night. Note also that an absolute 72-hours is not necessary. Part of the day counts as the whole day: WednesDay-Night, ThursDay-Night, FriDay-Night, and resurrected on Shabbath Day.
48 See Daniel 9:24-27. Note: “Wednesday” is the 4th day and thus the middle of the Biblical 7-day week. This is also “in the midst of” [vs. 27] the final 7-year period of the 490 years spoken of in Daniel 9:24. Note: An Exact Fulfillment is not the same as a Parallel Fulfillment.
53 This may refer to “[the] ninety days” or the 3-months of the spring season, that begins with the spring equinox (March 21st) and ends with the summer solstice (June 21st).
54 0.7 of a mile was the limit permitted for traveling on the Shabbath.
55 Yahshúa died in the midst of the final seven-year period of Daniel 9:24-27. There it is stated that “Seven Sevens are determined upon your people and upon the qodesh city [Jerusalem]. “Seven Sevens” means 7-Weeks of Years, which equals 490 years. After 6-Weeks of Years (483 Years) a final 7-year window would open. In this window, Messiah would be anointed, as well as, be “cut off” (killed). The last seven of the sevens was fulfilled in his life. The six matters to be accomplished in that time frame were accomplished through his life, death, and resurrection. One will also see another allusion from Daniel 9:27, “in the midst of the week”. Noting that there are four levels of interpretation recognized in Judaism, each one legitimate within its own parameters, not only was this in the midst of the final seven years, he died on Wednesday, the midst of the seven-day Biblical week. See GHT 82:32. See also, our exposition of Daniel 9:24-27 in our writing, called, “New Covenant Israel: The Transitional Generation-From Promise to Reality”. Yahshúa was 43 years old when he died, according to GHT. This would be “within” or “in the midst of” the final 7-year window. (Counting from the starting point of the 490 years, the decree of Cyrus in 457 BC. See our chart.
56 Portions of this section is somewhat confused, probably redacted by the editors. Therefore, along with the editors of “The Gospel of the Nazirenes” translation by Alan Wauters and Rick Van Wyhe, we see fit to adjust it, following their translation closely. As in other places, unfortunately, they do not reference their source recension of this text. The original text was first publicized by Rev. Ousley in small portions and later released by editors, who may have put it together as a whole. It seems they attempted to incorporate the ideas contained in verse 25. See also Chapter 64.
