It is indeed startling to discover that Messiah’s historical existence and His supreme divinity is openly attested in the Scriptures. The logical way to confirm His divinity is from the Hebrew Bible known as the Tanak,iii otherwise known as the Old [First] Testament, and to point to instances where the Messianic Scriptures or the the New Covenant [NT] quotes passages from the Tanak and applies them to the historical figure, Yahushua HaMashiach, in harmony with the Biblical criterion of double attestation.

YAHUSHUA SAID: “MOSHEH [MOSES] WROTE ABOUT ME”

(And that was putting it mildly for Mosheh wrote about YHWH  [Yahuah] scores of times in the Torah!)

“For if you believed Mosheh [Moses], you would have believed Me, since he wrote about Me. But if you do not believe his writings, how shall you believe My words?” (Yohanan [John] 5:46, 47)

“No man can come to Me, except the Father Who has sent Me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. It is written in the prophets, ‘And they shall be all taught of Yahueh.’ Every man therefore that has heard, and has learned of the Father,  comes to Me” (Yohanan [John] 6:44, 45)iv

Now, notwithstanding the fact that the name [YHWV [Yahushua] is mentioned 222 times in the Tanak [the Hebrew Scriptures] and more especially in the Torah however where the name refers primarily to “Joshua” son of Nun, e.g., Shemoth [Exodus] 17:9; 24:13; 32:17; 33:11; Bemidbar [Numbers] 13:16; 27:18; but also typically of HaMashiach in Devarim 18:15-19 as referred to above, one may logically ask:

“Where exactly did Moses actually write copiously about Yahushua as we have come to know Him in the New Covenant Scriptures”?

The answer will astound anyone not familiar with the subject for it must surely be very evident in the writings of Moses as found in the Torah (Genesis to Deuteronomy), the first five books of the Tanak.

The primary and evident answer of course is that every time Mosheh wrote about the name hwhy [Yahueh] and His acts he was in fact indirectly writing about [YHWV [Yahushua] for this is what Yahushua implied by His pronouncement:

“For if you believed Mosheh [Moses], you would have believed Me, since he wrote about Me. But if you do not believe his writings, how shall you believe My words?” (John 5:46, 47).

It is therefore immeasurably more than a common curiosity to note that the prefix YHW [Yahu] in [YHWV [Yahushua] is

also the prefix in hwhy [Yahueh], demonstrating their bosom oneness. hwhy [Yahueh] SEC #H3068 occurs more than 6500 times in the Tanak where the LXX [Septuagint] incorrectly has KURIOS [Kurios], the Vulgate incorrectly has Dominvs and KJV incorrectly has LORD.

Yahushua, after His resurrection, again pointed out the fact, moreover, not alone of Mosheh’s writing about Him, but also all the Prophets:

“Then Yahushua said to them: O deficient in understanding, and slow of heart to believe all the things that the Prophets uttered. Were not these things to be; that the Messiah should suffer and that He should enter into His glory? Then He began from Moses, and from all the Prophets, and expounded to them concerning Himself from all the Scriptures. (Luke 24:25-27)

HEBRAIC FIGURES OF SPEECH FOR THE MESSIAH

It is absolutely essential in our interpretation of Scripture that we take into consideration the Hebraic employment of the metaphor figure of speech which sees Yahushua as the metaphorical Right Hand of Yahueh. Metaphors are most frequently compared with similes. The Colombia Encyclopedia, 6th edition, explains the difference as: a simile states that A is like B, a metaphor states that A is B or substitutes B for A.

Where a metaphor asserts the two objects in the comparison are identical on the point of comparison, a simile merely asserts a similarity. For this reason a metaphor is generally considered more forceful than a simile.“To sit at one’s right hand” or “Son of Elohim [God]” in Scripture need not be taken literally as a separate personage but is clearly a metaphor for Yahuah Himself.  Consequently, any subsequent appearance of Yahushua HaMashiach, as for example when He appeared after His resurrection as recorded in the Gospels or in the Acts of the Apostles, or His promise to return in the future, have been, or are still to be, in His divine form of hwhy [Yahueh] but in the name of Yahushua HaMashiach, Yisra’el’s Redeemer. Consider Yahushua’s question posed to the Pharisees:

“And when the Pharisees were gathered together, [vwhy asked them, saying, ‘What do you think concerning the Messiah? Whose Son is He?’ They said to Him, ‘The Son of Dawiḏ.’ He said to them, ‘Then how does Dawiḏ in the Spirit call Him ‘Master’, saying, ‘hwhy said to my Master, ‘Sit at My right hand, until I make Your enemies a footstool of Your feet’. ‘If then Dawiḏ calls Him ‘Master’, how is He his Son?” And no one was able to answer Him a word, and from that day on no one was bold enough to ask Him any more questions. (Mattithyahu 22:41-46 – The Scriptures 1998)

YHWH said to my Master, ‘Sit at My right hand, Until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet. YHWH sends Your mighty sceptre out of Tsiyon. Rule in the midst of Your enemies! Your people volunteer in the day of Your might, In the splendours of set-apartness! From the womb, from the morning, You have the dew of Your youth! hwhy has sworn and does not relent, ‘You are a priest forever According to the order of Malkitsedeq.’ hwhy at Your right hand Shall The Scriptures 1998) Therefore, by logical conclusion: YHWH [Yahueh] = [YHWV [Yahushua]

IN THE TANAK [PRE-MESSIANIC SCRIPTURES, i.e., THE O.T.] YHWH [YAHUAH]v IS THE SHEPHERD WHO SEEKS FOR HIS LOST SHEEP

“My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and on every high hill. And My sheep were scattered over all the face of the earth, and no one was seeking or searching for them. Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of hwhy: ‘As I live,’ declares the Master hwhy, ‘because My flock became a prey, and My flock became food for every beast of the field, from not having a shepherd, and My shepherds did not search for My flock, but the shepherds fed themselves and did not feed My flock, therefore, O shepherds, hear the word of hwhy! Thus said the Master hwhy, ‘See, I am against the shepherds, and shall require My flock at their hand, and shall make them cease feeding the sheep, and the shepherds shall feed themselves no more. And I shall deliver My flock from their mouths, and they shall no longer be food for them. For thus said the Master hwhy ‘See, I Myself shall search for My sheep and seek them out.’ (Ezekiel 34:6-11 – The Scriptures 1998, emphasis mine)

“’And they shall know that I, hwhy their Elohim, am with them, and that they, the house of Yisra’ĕl, are My people,’ declares the Master hwhy ‘And you, My flock, the flock of My pasture, are men, and I am your Elohim,’ declares the Master hwhy ” (Ezekiel 34:30:31 – The Scriptures 1998, emphasis mine)

BUT THE MESSIANIC NEW COVENANT SCRIPTURES ATTEST DOUBLY TO HIS DEITY BY CONFIRMING THAT THE SHEPHERD OF THE TANAK IS YAHUSHUA

“For what credit is there in enduring a beating when you sin? But if you suffer for doing good and you endure, this finds favour with Elohim. For to this you were called, because Messiah also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps, who committed no sin, nor was deceit found in His mouth, who, being reviled, did not revile in return; suffering, did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges righteously; who Himself bore our sins in His body on the timber, so that we, having died to sins, might live unto righteousness – by whose stripes you were healed. For you were like sheep going astray, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your lives.”vi (I Peter 2:20-25 – The Scriptures 1998, emphasis mine)

“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep. But the hireling, and not being a shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees. And the wolf snatches the sheep and scatters them. Now the hireling flees because he is a hireling and is not concerned about the sheep. I am the good shepherd.1 And I know Mine, and Mine know Me, even as the Father knows Me, and I know the Father. And I lay down My life for the sheep. And other sheepvii I have which are not of this foldviii – I have to bring them as well, and they shall hear My voice, and there shall be one flock, one shepherd. (John 10:11-16 – The Scriptures 1998, emphasis mine)

IN THE TANAK [PRE-MESSIANIC SCRIPTURES, i.e., THE O.T.] IT IS TO YHWH [YAHUAH] TO WHOM EVERY KNEE SHOULD BOW

Who has announced this from of old? Who has declared it from that time? Is it not I, hwhy? And there is no mighty onebesides Me, a righteous Ěl and a Saviour, there is none besides Me. Turn to Me and be saved, all you ends of the earth! For I am Ěl, and there is none else. I have sworn by Myself, a word has gone out of My mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, so that to Me every knee shall bow, every tongue swear. One shall say, ‘Only in hwhy do I have righteousness and strength’ – he comes to Him. And all those displeased with Him shall be put to shame. In YHWH all the seed of Yisra’ĕl shall be declared right and boast.’” (Yeshayahu 45:21b-25 – The Scriptures 1998, emphasis mine)

BUT THE MESSIANIC NEW COVENANT SCRIPTURES ATTEST DOUBLY TO HIS DEITY BY CONFIRMING THAT AT THE NAME [vwhy [YAHUSHUA] EVERY KNEE SHOULD BOW

“For, let this mind be in you which was also in Messiah [vwhy, who, being in the form of Elohim, did not regard equality with Elohim a matter to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a servant, and came to be in the likeness of men. And having been found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient unto death, death even of a stake. Elohim, therefore, has highly exalted Him and given Him the Name which is above every name,ix that at the Name of [vwhy every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and every tongue should confess that [vwhy Messiah is Master, to the esteem of Elohim the Father.” (Philippians 2:5-11 – The Scriptures 1998, emphasis mine)

Therefore, by logical conclusion: YHWH [Yahueh] = [YHWV [Yahushua]

IN THE TANAK [PRE-MESSIANIC SCRIPTURES, i.e., THE O.T.] YHWH [YAHUEH] IS THE ONE UPON WHOM WE CALL TO BE SAVED

“And it shall be that everyone who calls on the Name of hwhy shall be delivered. For on Mount Tsiyon and in Yerushalayim there shall be an escape as hwhy has said, and among the survivors whom hwhy calls.” (Yoel 2:32 – The Scriptures 1998)

BUT THE MESSIANIC NEW COVENANT SCRIPTURES ATTEST DOUBLY TO HIS DEITY BY CONFIRMING THAT [vwhy [YAHUSHUA] IS THE ONE WHOM WE MUST CONFESS WITH THE MOUTH AND CALL UPON IN ORDER TO BE SAVED

“For Mosheh writes about the righteousness which is of the Torah, ‘The man who does these shall live by them. But the righteousness of belief speaks in this way, ‘Do not say in your heart, ‘Who shall ascend into the heavens?’ – that is, to bring Messiah down; or, ‘Who shall descend into the abyss?’ – that is, to bring Messiah up from the dead. But what does it say? ‘The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” – that is, the word of belief which we are proclaiming: That if you confess with your mouth the Master [vwhy and believe in your heart that Elohim has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and one confesses with the mouth, and so is saved. Because the Scripture says, ‘Whoever puts his trust in Him shall not be put to shame. Because there is no distinction between Yehuḏite and Greek, for the same Master of all is rich to all those calling upon Him. For ‘everyone who calls on the Namex of hwhy shall be saved.’” (Romans 10:5-13 – The Scriptures 1998)

MOREOVER, HIS VERY NAME [YHWV [YAHUSHUA], EQUATES YHWH [YAHUAH] WITH SALVATION

Most people who have heard of Him called Him Jesusxi Christxii; but this was not His real name. His original and genuine name is [YHWV [Yahushua]xiii xyvmh [HaMashiach]xiv

“Who has gone up to the heavens and come down? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound thewaters in a garment? Who established all the ends of the earth? What is His Name, And what is His Son’s Name, If you know it”? (Mishle [Proverbs] 30:4 – The Scriptures 1998)

The Septuagint’s Koine-based Greek Church name IHSOUS [Ihsous] had not ever carried any hint neither of the words Saviour, salvation nor of save nor of any literal embodiment of the divine Name, hwhy [Yahueh]. On the other hand there is a clear-cut relationship between [vwhy [Yahushua], hwhy [Yahueh] and h[wvy [yashuah=salvation], the angelic announcement to His earthly step-father, Yosef, being:

“And she shall give birth to a Son, and you shall call His Name [vwhy for He shall savexv His people from their sins.” (Mattithyahu 1:21 – The Scriptures 1998)

The fact that the angel spoke Hebrew in “She shall bring forth a son, and you shall call His name [vwhy [Yahushua], for He shall save His people from their sins” is confirmed in that he gave a valid reason for the Name he gave the Incarnate Yahueh, “for He shall save His people from their sins”. The play on words is possible in Hebrew but not in Aramaic; nor for that matter in Koine. The Hebrew verb for save is [vy [yashua=save] {spelled: Yud-Shin-Ayin} SEC #H3467, a root of the noun h[wvy [yashuah=salvation] {spelled: Yud-Shin-Vav-Ayin-Heh} SEC#H3444.

However there are millions of people, including learned scholars, who imagine that [vwhy [Yahushua] was not an historical figure at all and also millions others that do not realize that He was in fact the great Creator of the universe who made a personal visitation to Israel between the years 4 BCE and 30 CE in the Julian-Gregorian Calendar or between 3757xvi and 3790xvii in the Hebrew calendar.

It is fitting therefor that as Creator-Messiah His atoning death had been doubly attested by being foretold in the Tanak 476 years before it occurred,xviii in terms of the prophecy in Daniel 9:24-27xix

ASTONISHINGLY THE TANAK [PRE-MESSIANIC SCRIPTURES, i.e., THE O.T.] RECORD THAT IT WAS YHWH [YAHUAH] WHO WAS “PIERCED”

“The message of the word of YHWH [Yahuah] against Yisra’ĕl. YHWH [Yahuah], stretching out the heavens, and laying the foundation of the earth, and forming the spirit of man within him, declares…

‘And I shall pour on the house of Dawiḏ and on the inhabitants of Yerushalayim a spirit of favour and prayers. And they shall look on Mexx whom they pierced, and they shall mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son. And they shall be in bitterness over Him as a bitterness over the rwkb [first-born].xxi (Zakaryah 12:1, 10 – The Scriptures 1998)

HOWEVER THE MESSIANIC NEW COVENANT SCRIPTURES ATTEST DOUBLY TO HIS DEITY BY CONFIRMING THAT IT WAS IN FACT [YHWV [YAHUSHUA] WHO WAS “PIERCED”

“Therefore, since it was the Preparationxxii Day, that the bodies should not remain on the stake on the Sabbath – for that Sabbath was a high one – the Yehuḏim asked Pilate to have their legs broken, and that they be taken away. Therefore the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first, and of the other who was impaled with Him, but when they came to [YHWV [Yahushua] and saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs. But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and instantly blood and water came out. And he who has seen has witnessed, and his witness is true. And he knows that he is speaking the truth, in order that you might believe. For this took place in order for the Scripture to be filled: ‘Not one of His bones shall be broken.’ And again another Scripture says, ‘They shall look on Him whom they pierced.’” (Yohanan [John] 19:31-37 – The Scriptures 1998)

Note: The One being pierced in John 19:37 is [YHWV [Yahushua] but the One being pierced in Zakaryah 12:10 is clearly YHWH [Yahueh] in terms of Zakaryah 12:1.

Note: “Me” … “Him” – The change of person is due to Yahueh-Mashiach speaking in His own person first, then the prophet speaking of Him. [Jamieson, Fausset and Brown Commentary] Therefore, by logical conclusion: YHWH [Yahueh] = [YHWV [Yahushua]

MOREOVER THE MESSIANIC NEW COVENANT SCRIPTURES ATTEST DOUBLY TO HIS DEITY BY CONFIRMING THAT [YHWV [YAHUSHUA] WAS SENTENCED TO DEATH ON THE CHARGE OF HIS CLAIMING TO BE YHWH [YAHUEH] ON PASSOVER EVE 3790xxiii HEBREW CALENDAR [OR 30 CE]

Then the high priest stood up in the centre and asked [vwhy, saying, ‘Have You no answer to make? What do these witness against You?’ But He remained silent and gave no answer. Again the high priest asked Him, saying to Him, ‘Are You the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed?’ And [vwhy said, ‘I am, and you shall see the Son of Aḏam sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming with the clouds of the heaven.’ And tearing his garments, the high priest said, ‘What further need do we have of witnesses? You have heard the blasphemy! What do you think?’ And they all condemned Him to be liable to death. And some began to spit on Him, and to blindfold Him, and to beat Him, and to say to Him, ‘Prophesy!’ And the officers struck Him with the palms of their hands.” (Mark 14:60-65 – The Scriptures 1998, emphasis mine); also at Matt 26:57-67; Luke 22:66-71; John 18:19-24).

Note carefully as nonpredicated His authoritative statement in His answer to the high priest, above, as when Yahushua uses the divine phrase “I am” (i.e., absolute). See R. E. Brown, John (AB), 1:533- 38 which view sees the nonpredicated “I am” as a reference to the divine Name revealed in Shemoth [Exodus] 3:14, reflected in English translations like NAB (“if you do not believe that I am, you will die in your sins”).

THE EXPERT OPINIONS OF SOME FAMOUS AMERICAN LAWYERS

(Quoted from page 93 “Evidence that Demands a Verdict” by Josh McDowell)

Judge Gaynor in “The mistrials of Jesus (sic)” the accomplished jurist of the New York bench, in his address upon the trial of Yahushua, takes the ground that blasphemy was the one charge made against Him before the Sanhedrin. He says: “It is plain from each of the gospel narratives that the alleged crime for which Jesus (sic) was tried and convicted was blasphemy…”

The lawyer Irwin Linton states: “Unique among criminal trials is this one in which not the actions but the identity of the accused is the issue…”

The lawyer and one time sceptic Frank Morison wrote: “Jesus (sic) of Nazareth was condemned to death, not upon the statements of His accusers, but upon an admission extorted from Him under oath.”

In “Christ and the Critics” Hilarin Felder wrote “This inspection of the trial of Jesus (sic) should be sufficient to give us the invincible conviction that the Saviour confessed His true divinity before His judges.”

Therefore, by logical conclusion: hwhy [Yahueh] = [YHWV [Yahushua]

IN THE TANAK [PRE-MESSIANIC SCRIPTURES, i.e., THE O.T.] YHWH [YAHUEH] LEGISLATES THROUGH THE TRIBE OF YEHUDAH [JUDAH] UNTIL THE ARRIVAL OF “SHILOH”xxiv

“The sceptre shall not turn aside from Yehuḏah, nor a Lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh comes, and to Him is the obedience of peoples.” (Genesis 49:10 – The Scriptures 1998, emphasis mine)

“For a Child shall be born unto us, a Son shall be given unto us, and the rule is on His shoulder. And His Name is called Wonder, Counsellor, Strong Ěl, Father of Continuity, Prince of Peace.” (Yeshayahu 9:6 – The Scriptures 1998, emphasis mine)

“’See, the days are coming,’ declares hwhy, ‘when I shall make a vdh [chadash=new SEC #H2319] covenant with the house of Yisra’ĕl and with the house of Yehuḏah,xxv not like the covenant I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Mitsrayim, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them,’ declares hwhy. ‘For this is the covenant I shall make with the house of Yisra’ĕl after those days, declares YHWH: I shall put My Torah in their inward parts, and write it on their hearts. And I shall be their Elohim, and they shall be My people. And no longer shall they teach, each one his neighbour, and each one his brother, saying, “Know YHWH,” for they shall all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them,’ declares hwhy. ‘For I shall forgive their crookedness, and remember their sin no more.’ Thus said YHWH, who gives the sun for a light by day, and the laws of the moon and the stars for a light by night, who stirs up the sea, and its waves roar – YHWH of hosts is His Name: ‘If these laws vanish from before Me,’ declares YHWH, ‘then the seed of Yisra’ĕl shall also cease from being a nation before Me forever.’ Thus said hwhy, ‘If the heavens above could be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I would also cast off all the seed of Yisra’ĕl for all that they have done,’ declares YHWH” (Yirmyahu 31:31-37 – The Scriptures 1998, emphasis mine)

BUT THE MESSIANIC NEW COVENANT SCRIPTURES ATTEST DOUBLY TO HIS DEITY BY CONFIRMING THAT “SHILOH” [YHWV [YAHUSHUA] PERSONALLY MEDIATES AND LEGISLATES THE NEW COVENANT

“And as they were eating, [vwhy took bread, and having blessed, broke and gave it to the taught ones and said, ‘Take, eat, this is My body.’ And taking the cup, and giving thanks, He gave it to them, saying, ‘Drink from it, all of you. For this is My blood, that of the renewed [vdh =chadash, new SEC #H2319] covenant, which is shed for many for the forgiveness of sins. But I say to you, I shall certainly not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on till that day when I drink it anew with you in the reign of My Father.’ And having sung a song, they went out to the Mount of Olives. Then [YHWV said to them, ‘All of you shall stumble in Me this night, for it has been written, “I shall strike the Shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered.”’xxvi (Mattithyahu 26:26-31 – The Scriptures 1998, emphasis mine)

“By as much as this [YHWV has become a guarantor of a better covenant.” (Ibrim [Hebrews] 7:22 – The Scriptures 1998) “But now He has obtained a more excellent service, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was constituted [NOMOTHETEO=legislated as Torah] on better promises. For if that first covenant had been faultless, then no place would have been sought for a second. For finding fault with them, He says, ‘See, the days are coming,’ says hwhy, ‘when I shall conclude with the house of Yisra’ĕl and with the house of Yehuḏah a renewed [vdh =chadash, new SEC #H2319] covenant, not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Mitsrayim, because they did not continue in My covenant, and I disregarded them,’ says hwhy. ‘Because this is the covenant that I shall make with the house of Yisra’ĕl after those days, says YHWH, giving My laws in their mind, and I shall write them on their hearts, and I shall be their Elohim, and they shall be My people. And they shall by no means teach each one his neighbour, and each one his brother, saying, ‘Know YHWH,’ because they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them. Because I shall forgive their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawlessnesses I shall no longer remember.”xxvii By saying, ‘New,’ He has made the first old. Now what becomes old and growing aged is near disappearing.” (Ibrim [Hebrews] 8:6-13 – The Scriptures 1998, with my additions of the meaning of the original Greek) The writer to the Ibrim [Hebrews] thus applies the Tanak passage (Yirmyahu 31:31-37) to Yahushua Ha Mashiach although it clearly spoke of Yahuah.

Therefore, by logical conclusion: YHWH [Yahuah] = [YHWV [Yahushua]

IN THE TANAK [PRE-MESSIANIC SCRIPTURES, i.e., THE O.T.] IT IS YHWH [YAHUAH] WHO WAS THE SANCTUARY AND THE STUMBLING STONE

“YHWH of hosts, Him you shall set apart. Let Him be your fear, and let Him be your dread. And He shall be for a set apart place, but a stone of stumbling and a rock that makes for falling to both the houses of Yisra’ĕl, as a trap and a snare to the  inhabitants of Yerushalayim. And many among them shall stumble and fall, and be broken and snared and ” (Yeshayahu 8:13-15 – The Scriptures 1998)

Notes:

Sanctuary: inviolable asylum, like the altar of the temple (1Ki 1:50; 2:28; Eze 11:16; compare Pro 18:10); namely, to those who fear and trust in Him.

Offence: that is, a rock over which they should fall to their hurt; namely those who would not believe.

Both houses: Israel and Judah. Here again the prophecy expands beyond the temporary application in Ahaz’ time. The very stone, Immanuel, which would have been a sanctuary on belief, becomes a fatal stumbling-block through unbelief. Yahushua refers to this in Mat 21:44. (Compare Deu 32:4, 15, 18, 30, 31; Dan 2:34; Rom 9:33; 1Pe 2:8).

Gin: trap, in which birds are unexpectedly caught (Luk 21:35; 1Th 5:2). So at the destruction of Jerusalem under Titus. [Jamieson, Fausset and Brown Commentary]

BUT THE MESSIANIC NEW COVENANT SCRIPTURES ATTEST DOUBLY TO HIS DEITY BY CONFIRMING THAT [YHWV [YAHUSHUA] IS THE SANCTUARY AND THE STUMBLING STONE TO BOTH THE HOUSES OF ISRAEL

“And it shall be in the place where it was said to them, ‘You are not My people,’ there they shall be called sons of the living Elohim. And Yeshayahu cries out on behalf of Yisra’ĕl, ‘Though the number of the children of Yisra’ĕl be as the sand of the sea, the remnant shall be saved. For He is bringing a matter to an end, and is cutting it short in righteousness, because hwhy shall cut short a matter on the earth.” And as Yeshayahu said before, ‘If hwhy of hosts had not left us a seed, we would have become like Seḏom, and we would have been made like Amorah.’ What shall we say then? That gentiles not following after righteousness, have obtained righteousness, even the righteousness of belief, but Yisra’ĕl following after the Torah of righteousness, has not arrived at the Torah of righteousness. Why? Because it was not of belief, but as by works of Torah. For they stumbled at the Stone of stumbling. As it has been written, ‘See, I lay in Tsiyon a Stone of stumbling and a Rock that makes for falling, and everyone who is believing on Him shall not be put to shame.’” (Romans 9:26-33 – The Scriptures 1998)

IN THE TANAK [PRE-MESSIANIC SCRIPTURES, i.e., THE O.T.] YAHUAH IS THE SAVIOUR AND HIS IS THE HOLY [SET-APART] ARM THAT BRINGS SALVATION

“’Who is this coming from Edom, with garments of glowing colours from Botsrah, who is robed in splendour, striding forward in the greatness of His strength?’ ‘It is I who speak in righteousness, mighty to save.’ ‘Why is there red on Your raiment, and Your garments like one who treads in the winepress?’ ‘I have trodden the winepress alone, and from the peoples no one was with Me. And I trod them down in My displeasure, and I trampled them in My wrath. Their blood is sprinkled upon My garments, and I have defiled all My raiment. For a day of vengeance is in My heart, and the year of My redeemed has come. And I looked, but there was none helping, and I was astonished that there was none upholding. So My own arm saved for Me, and My wrath upheld Me. And I trod down peoples in My displeasure, and made them drunk in My wrath, and brought down their strength to earth.’ ‘Let me recount the kindnesses of YHWH and the praises of hwhy, according to all that hwhy has done for us, and the great goodness toward the house of Yisra’ĕl, which He has done for them according to His compassion, and according to His many kindnesses. And He said, ‘They are My people, children who do not act falsely.’ (Yeshayahu 63:1-8 – The Scriptures 1998, emphasis mine)

Also His hand was used to symbolize His creative activity:

“Also, My hand has laid the foundation of the earth, and My right hand has stretched out the heavens. I call to them, let them stand together.” (Yeshayahu 48:13 – The Scriptures 1998)

“Look, the hand of YHWH has not become too short to save, nor His ear too heavy to hear.” (Yeshayahu 59:1 – The Scriptures).

There are also many texts combining both YHWH[Yahueh]’s arm and His hand: “And you shall remember that you were a slave in the land of Mitsrayim, and that YHWH your Elohim brought you out from there by a strong hand and by an utstretched arm. Therefore hwhy your Elohim commanded you to observe the Sabbath day. ” (Devarim 5:15 – The Scriptures 1998).

BUT THE MESSIANIC NEW COVENANT SCRIPTURES ATTEST DOUBLY TO HIS DEITY BY CONFIRMING THAT THE “HOLY ARM OF YAHUEH” TURNED OUT TO BE NONE LESS THAN YAHUAH HIMSELF WHEN HE “RETURNED TO TSIYON” INCOGNITO AS “SERVANT” YAHUSHUA, THE “MAN OF SORROWS”

“Therefore My people shall know My Namexxviii, in that day, for I am the One who is speaking. See, it is I. How pleasant upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who proclaims peace, who brings good news, who proclaims deliverance, who says to Tsiyon, ‘Your Elohim reigns!’ The voice of your watchmen! They shall lift up their voices, together they shout for joy, because eye to eye they see the return of hwhy to Tsiyonxxix… Break forth into joy, sing together, you waste places of Yerushalayim! For hwhy shall comfort His people, He shall redeem Yerushalayim. hwhy shall lay bare His set-apart arm in the eyes of all the nations. And all the ends of the earth shall see the deliverance of our Elohim. (Yeshayahu 52:6-10 – The Scriptures, emphasis mine)

“Who has believed our report? And to whom was the armxxx of hwhy revealed? For He grew up before Him as a tender plant, and as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or splendour that we should look upon Him, nor appearance that we should desire Him – despised and rejected by men, a man of pains and knowing sickness. And as one from whom the face is hidden, being despised, and we did not consider Him. Truly, He has borne our sicknesses and carried our pains. Yet we reckoned Him stricken, smitten by Elohim, and afflicted. But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our crookednesses. The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed. We all, like sheep, went astray, each one of us has turned to his own way. And hwhy has laid on Him the crookedness of us all. He was oppressed and He was afflicted, but He did not open His mouth. He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, but He did not open His mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment. And as for His generation, who considered that He shall be cut off from the land of the living? For the transgression of My people He was stricken. And He was appointed a grave with the wrong, and with the rich at His death, because He had done no violence, nor was deceit in His mouth. But hwhy was pleased to crush Him, He laid sickness on Him, that when He made Himself an offering for guilt, He would see a seed, He would prolong His days and the pleasure of hwhy prosper in His hand. He would see the result of the suffering of His life and be satisfied. Through His knowledge My righteous Servant makes many righteous, and He bears their crookednesses. Therefore I give Him a portion among the great, and He divides the spoil with the strong, because He poured out His being unto death,xxxi and He was counted with the transgressors, and He bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors. ” (Yeshayahu 53:1-12 – The Scriptures, emphasis mine)

IN THE TANAK [PRE-MESSIANIC SCRIPTURES, i.e., THE O.T.] THE COMING OF YHWH [YAHUAH] IS LIKENED TO THE FORMER AND LATTER RAIN

“Come, and let us turn back to hwhy. For He has torn but He does heal us, He has stricken but He binds us up. After two days He shall revive us, on the third day He shall raise us up, so that we live before Him. So let us know, let us pursue to know hwhy. His going forth is as certain as the morning. And He comes to us like the rain, like the latter rain watering the earth. ‘Ephrayim, what would I do with you? Yehuḏah,xxxii what would I do with you? For your trustworthiness is like a morning cloud, and like the early dew it goes away.’” (Hosea 6:1-4 – The Scriptures 1998)

BUT THE MESSIANIC NEW COVENANT SCRIPTURES ATTEST DOUBLY TO HIS DEITY BY CONFIRMING THAT THE COMING OF MASHIACH [MESSIAH] IS LIKENED TO THE FORMER AND LATTER RAIN

“So, brothers, be patient until the coming of the Master. See, the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain.* You too, be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Master has drawn near.” (James 5:7, 8 – The Scriptures 1998)

*That is “ hwhy. His (that is, Master Yahushua, going forth is as certain as the morning. And He comes to us like the rain” (referring to Hosea 6:3). Therefore, by logical conclusion: hwhy [Yahueh] = [vwhy [Yahushua]

EARLY BELIEVERS, LIKE PETER, SHA’ULxxxiii AND OTHERS RESPECTED YHWH [YAHUAH] AND [YHWV YAHUSHUA] AS THE ONE AND SAME DEITY

“Shimʽon Kĕpha, a servant and emissary of [vwhy Messiah, to those who have obtained a belief as precious as ours by the righteousness of our Elohim and Saviour [vwhy Messiah: Favour and peace be increased to you in the knowledge of Elohim and of [vwhy our Master, as His Mighty-like power has given to us all we need for life and reverence, through the knowledge of Him who called us to esteem and uprightness. Through these there have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, so that through these you might be partakers of the Mighty-like nature, having escaped from the corruption in the world, caused by lust.” (2 Kepha [Peter] 1:1-4 The Scriptures 1998, emphasis mine)

“For I myself could have wished to be banished from Messiah for the sake of my brothers, my relatives according to the flesh, who are Yisra’ĕlites, whose is the adoption, and the esteem, and the covenants, and the giving of the Torah, and the worship, and the promises, whose are the fathers, and from whom is the Messiah according to the flesh, who is over all, Elohim-blessed forever. Amĕn. However, it is not as though the word of Elohim has failed. For they are not all Yisra’ĕl who are of Yisra’ĕl, neither are they all children because they are the seed of Aḇraham, but, ‘In Yitsḥaq your seed shall be called.’ That is, those who are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of Elohim, but the children of the promise are reckoned as the seed.” (Romans 9:3-8 – The Scriptures 1998, emphasis mine)

Note: It would be a better translation to say, “from whom is the Messiah according to the flesh, who is over all, Elohim, blessed for ever.” See endnote.xxxiv It will be noticed that this gifted once Orthodox Pharisee rav’s estimation of Yahushua as being supreme divinity is consistent throughout his writings. “Sha’ul, an emissary of [YHWV Messiah……in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, who is the likeness of the invisible Elohim, the first-born of all creation.xxxv Because in Him were created all that are in the heavens and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or rulerships or principalities or authorities – all have been created through Him and for Him. And He is before all, and in Him all hold together. And He is the Head of the body, the assembly, who is the beginning, the first-born from the dead, that He might become the One who is first in all. Because in Him all the completeness was well pleased to dwell, and through Him to completely restore to favour all unto Himself, whether on earth or in the heavens, having made peace through the blood of His ” (Colossians 1:1, 14-20 – The Scriptures 1998, emphasis mine)

“Because in Him dwells all the completeness of the Mightiness bodily, and you have been made complete in Him, who is the Head of all principality and authority. In Him you were also circumcised with a circumcision not made with hands, in the putting off of the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Messiah, having been buried with Him in immersion, in which you also were raised with Him through the belief in the working of Elohim, who raised Him from the dead. And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses,xxxvi having blotted out the certificate of debt against us – by the dogmas – which stood against us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the stake. Having stripped the principalities and the authorities, He made a public display of them, having prevailed over them in it. Let no one therefore judge you in eating or in drinking, or in respect of a festival or a new moon or Sabbaths – which are a shadow of what is to come – but the Body of the Messiah.” (Colossians 2:9-17 – The Scriptures 1998, emphasis mine); However a better translation would be: “For in him dwells all the fullness of the ΘΕΌΤΗS [Theotes=Divinity]xxxvii bodily” (Colossians 2:9).

“Looking for the blessed expectation and esteemed appearance of the great Elohim and our Saviour [YHWV Messiah…” (Titus 2:13 – The Scriptures 1998, emphasis mine)

“For, let this mind be in you which was also in Messiah [vwhy, who, being in the formxxxviii of Elohim, did not regard equality with Elohim a matter to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a servant, and came to be in the likeness of men. And having been found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient unto death, death even of a stake.xxxix Elohim, therefore, has highly exalted Him and given Him the Name which is above every name, that at the Name of [vwhy every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and every tongue should confess that [vwhy Messiah is Master, to the esteem of Elohim the Father.” (Philippians 2:5-11 – The Scriptures 1998, emphasis mine)

Note: Obviously in order to contain the fullness of ΘΕΌΤΗS [Theotes=Divinity], like an empty vessel being filled with a liquid, the content of the fuller vessel has first to be decanted. Yahushua was not so much as sent forth by His Father as He was emptied from His Paternal Source. Note carefully the following grammatical construction of the (understood) nominative pronoun (He) in the once Orthodox Pharisee rav’s writing:“(He), that is Yahushua, being in the form of Yahueh, He emptied Himself” (Philippians 2:7).

Therefore, by logical conclusion: YHWH [Yahueh] = [YHWV [Yahushua]

THE MASORETIC MISSPOINTING OF HEBREW NAMES

It is interesting to note that in the ancient (pre-Masoretic) cuneiform Texts why is written [Yahu], whereas the later “pointed” Texts (Masoretic) write the ancient Yahu-a [as Yehu], the ancient Yahu-khazi [as Yehoahaz] and the ancient Khazaqi-yahu [as Hezekiah]. (A. H. Sayce in “Higher Criticism” notes on p. 87).This exciting discovery throws ancient illumination on the correct spelling and “unpointed” phonetics of Yahueh in rather than Yehovah and of Yahushua rather than Yehoshua. This discovery automatically serves to rectify all Masoretic “miss-pointed” YHW [yahu] prefix names

TABLE 1: HOW HIS TRUE HEBREW NAME [vwhy [YAHUSHUA] DEVOLVED INTO THE SEPTUAGINT

(LXX) KOINE NAME “IHSOUS”, THE LATIN NAME “IESVS” AND THE LATE MODERN ENGLISH NAME “JESUS”xl

LANGUAGE TRANSLITERATION

DATES GENERAL COMMENTS

HEBREW, the language of Mosheh.xli Yahushua, written as [YHWV was also typically foretold of the ultimate  Ha Mashiachxlii by the prophet Zakaryahxliii YAHUSHUA [YHWV 1250 BCE Hebrew TORAH

The prefix YHW [Yahu] in [YHWV [Yahushua] is also the prefix in YHWH [Yahuah], the Father’s Personal Name, demonstrating their intimate bosom unity. But why [Yahu] also occurs hidden as a prefix in Masoretic Text “pointed” names (but openly in Masoretic Text name suffixes)

2 KOINE. After the city-states lost their independence in the 4th century BCE their dialects developed into Koine, the language of Hellenistic Greece and of the NT IHSOUS / IHSOUSxliv  285 BCEKoine LXX (Septuagint)

(1) The Hebrew y [Yud] became a Koine “I” (2) h [Heh] became a Koine “H”

(3) w [Vav] was dropped (4) v [Shin] became a Koine “S” (5) [ [Ayin] became a Koine diphthong “OU” (6) A final Koine “S” was added (for the masculine ending)

3 Ecclesiastical LATIN. Jerome, translator of the Vulgate, like the Greek Church Fathers, was an antisemitic. He called the Jews “accursed by God” xlv IESVS 405 CE The Latin VULGATE (translated from Hebrew)

(1) The Hebrew y [ [Yud] became a Latin “I” (2) h [Heh] became a Latin “E” (3) w [Vav] was dropped (4) v [Shin] became a Latin “S” (5) [ [Ayin] became a Latin “V” (6) A final Latin “S” was added (for the masculine nominative ending)

4 OLD ENGLISH (Anglo-Saxon)

HAELEND 500-1050 CE Old English did not have a letter ”J” but “Iesus” was not used in OE but was rendered by “Haelend” (meaning Saviour)

5 MIDDLE ENGLISH Abbreviated forms IHU, IHUS, IHS 1050-1550 CE Middle English did not have a letter “J” but the name almost always had the abbreviated forms [Apparently abbreviated from the prefix IHU, IHUS, IHS in the Koine name IHSOUS]

6 EARLY MODERN ENGLISH KJV translation in 1611 CE [like Latin, articulation: “yesus”]

IESUS 1550-1700 CE The KJV of 1611 CE

Early Modern English “Iesus” was imported from the Latin “Iesvs” with no “J”

7 LATE MODERN ENGLISH JESUS 1700 CE- The Latin “I” developed a “tail” evolving into a “J”. Hence the name “Jesus” is a 300-year old textual corruption of the Early Modern English “Iesus”

It is abundantly clear that the witness of Yahushua was as to His personal manifestation as Yahueh Himself, not as a second person of a theoretical so-called “trinity” of divinities in a “Triune Godhead.” The sacred name of Yahuah Incarnate, [YHWV [Yahushua], had already been given to Him in olden times. The prefix why [Yahu] in [YHWV [Yahushua] is also the prefix in hwhy His heavenly Personal name thus demonstrating their bosom unity. Zakaryah (6:11-13), typically foretold 2500 years ago the Name [YHWV [Yahushua], letter-for-letter, of the future Davidic Messiah-King. His name [vwhy [Yahushua] is mentioned 222 times in the Tanak more especially in the Torah where the name refers primarily to Joshua son of Nun, e.g., Shemoth 17:9; 24:13; 32:17; 33:11; Bamidbar 13:16; 27:18 and also typically of xyvm [Mashiach=Messiah] in Devarim 18:15-19. This “embodiment” of the Name hwhy into [vwhy and vice versa is a type of word picture of the physical manifestation [Incarnation] of the Father in the Person of the Son as Redeemerxlvi of dispersed Yisra’el. The divine significance of His Name has been frequently highlighted in Scripture:

“Blessed is He that comes in the Name of YHWH [Yahueh]” (Mattithyahu 23:39).

“There is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12b).

Therefore, by logical conclusion: YHWH [Yahueh] = [YHWV [Yahushua]

THE DIFFERECE BETWEEN THE MESSIANIC NEW COVENANT SCRIPTURES AND THE FANCIFUL RABBINIC EXPECTATIONS OF THE MESSIAH

The following list, although including some of these Rabbinic passages, will however prove the infinite differences between the majority of the fanciful and unfulfilled Rabbinic expectations and picture presented of Mashiachxlvii, and historically actualized in Him in the Hebrew year 3790 (30 CE)xlviii

The following list of 136 prophecies does not contain all the passages in the Tanak applied to Mashiach or to Messianic times in the ancient Jewish writings. Such passages amounted in all to as many as 456 and may be downloaded from the websitexlix as quoted therein from the famous work, “The Life and Times of Jesusl (sic) the Messiah” by Dr Alfred Edersheim, 1883. The following list (see Table 2), although including some of these Rabbinic passages, will however prove the infinite differences between the majority of the fanciful and unfulfilled Rabbinic expectations and picture presented of Mashiach, and historically actualized in Him in the Hebrew year 3790 (30 CE), in the vdh tyrb [Bryth Chadash=New Covenant, New Testament Scriptures]. This important fact demonstrates that the Messianic ideas realized in [vwhy [Yahushua] could not have had their origin in the rabbinic views current in 1st century times.

IN PRE-MESSIANIC ENOCH AND ZAKARYAH THE SECOND COMING REFERS TO THE COMING OF YHWH [YAHUAH]

“And Hanok, (Enoch 1:9) the seventh from Adam, also prophesied of these, saying, ‘See, hwhy comes with His myriads of set-apart ones, to execute judgment on all, to punish all who are wicked among them concerning all their wicked works which they have committed in a wicked way, and concerning all the harsh words which wicked sinners have spoken against Him.” (Jude 1:14, 15 – The Scriptures 1998)

“And YHWH shall go forth, and He shall fight against those gentiles, as He fights in the day of battle. And in that day His feet shall stand upon the Mount of Olives, which faces Yerushalayim on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, from east to west, a very great valley, and half of the mountain shall move toward the north and half of it toward the south. And you shall flee to the valley of My mountain – for the valley of the mountains reaches to Atsal. And you shall flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziyah sovereign of Yehuḏah. And YHWH my Elohim shall come – all the set-apart ones with You. And in that day it shall be: there is no light, it is dark. And it shall be one day which is known to hwhy, neither day nor night, but at evening time there shall be light. And in that day it shall be that living waters flow from Yerushalayim, half of them toward the eastern sea and half of them toward the western sea, in summer as well as in winter. And YHWH shall be Sovereign over all the earth1. In that day there shall be one hwhy, and His Name one. (Zakaryah 14:3-9 – The Scriptures 1998)

BUT THE MESSIANIC NEW COVENANT SCRIPTURES ATTEST DOUBLY TO HIS DEITY BY CONFIRMING THAT THE SECOND COMING REFERS TO THE COMING OF [YHWV [YAHUSHUA]

“And the Master make you increase and overflow in love to each other and to all, as we also do to you, to establish your hearts blameless in set-apartness before our Elohim and Father at the coming of our Master [YHWV Messiah with all His set-apart ones!” (1 Thessalonians 3:11-13 – The Scriptures 1998)

HOW EXACTLY IS ONE SAVED?

“That if you confess with your mouth the Master [YHWV and believe in your heart that Elohim has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and one confesses with the mouth, and so is saved. Because the Scripture says, “Whoever puts his trust in Him shall not be put to shame.” (Romans 10:9-11 – The Scriptures 1998, emphasis mine) “For everyone who calls on the Name of YHWH shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13 – The Scriptures 1998, emphasis mine)

IS THERE ANY OTHER WAY TO BE SAVED?

“And this is the witness: that Elohim has given us everlasting life, and this life is in His Son. He who possesses the Son possesses life, he who does not possess the Son of Elohim does not possess life.” (1 John 5:11-12 – The Scriptures 1998, emphasis mine)

“[YHWV said to him, ‘I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. If youhad known Me, you would have known My Father too. From now on you know Him, and have seen.’ Philip said to Him, ‘Master, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.’ [YHWV said to him, ‘Have I been with you so long, and you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father, and how do you say, ‘Show us the Father? Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak from Myself. But the Father who stays in Me does His works.’ (John 14:6-10 – The Scriptures 1998, emphasis mine)

“And there is no deliverance in anyone else, for there is no other Name under the heaven given among men by which we need to be saved.” (Acts 4:12 – The Scriptures 1998, emphasis mine)

CAN I KNOW FOR CERTAIN THAT I AM SAVED?

“I have written this to you who believe in the Name of the Son of Elohim, so that you know that you possess everlasting life, and so that you believe in the Name of the Son of Elohim.” (1 John 5:13 – The Scriptures 1998, emphasis mine)

“The scepter shall not turn aside from Yehuḏah, nor a Lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh comes, and to Him is the obedience of peoples” Breshiyth [Genesis] 49:10 “Yisraelites… from whom are the fathers and from whom is the Messiah according to the flesh, who is over all, Elohim, blessed for ever.” “By as much as this [vwhy has become a guarantor of a better

  1. ” (Ibrim [Hebrews] 7:22); “But now He has obtained a more excellent service, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was constituted [NOMOTHETEO=legislated as Torah]lix on better promises. For if that first covenant had been faultless, then no place would have been sought for a second. For finding fault with them, He says, ‘See, the days are coming,’ says hwhy, ‘when I shall conclude with the house of Yisra’ĕl and with the house of Yehuḏah a renewedlx covenant, not according to the covenant that I made with their fatherslxi in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Mitsrayim, because they did not continue in My covenant…” (Ibrim 8:6-9)

iThe prefix YHW [Yahu] in [YHWV [Yahushua] is also the prefix in YHWH [Yahuah], demonstrating their bosom unity. YHWH [Yahuah] SEC #3068 occurs more than 6500 times in the Tanak (Old Testament) where the LXX has KURIOS [Kurios], the Vulgate Dominvs and KJV has LORD.

The verb form used in Shemoth [Exodus] 3:14 “I am who I am” is hyha [ehyeh=I am], the imperfect, first person common singular, of the verb hyh [haya=to be]. It forms an excellent paronomasia (a play upon words) with the Name. So when YHWH used the verb (in Shemoth 3:14) to express his name, he used this form saying, “I am.” When his people refer to him as YHWH [Yahuah], this is the third person masculine singular form of the same verb [Net Bible notes]. YHWH [Yahueh] the true sacred Name of the Creator that He revealed to Mosheh. Also known as “The Tetragrammaton”, consists of the Hebrew consonants YHWH {Yud-Heh-Vav-Heh}

ii Refer Devarim [Deuteronomy] 17:6; 19:15; John 8:17; I Timothy 5:19

iii The Pre-Messianic Hebrew Scriptures [Torah (Instructions), Nevi’im (Prophets), and Ketuvim (Writings)] See Luke 24:44

ivIn other words they shall be taught of Yahueh by coming to Yahushua for Yahushua is Yahueh

v YHWH [Yahuah] is the Old Testament name of [YHWV [Yahushua] but do the majority of His people know this? The Jewish people only know Him as “HaShem” [the Name] and the Christian people by the false names of “Jesus”, “Christ”, “LORD” and “God”. His true name [YHWV [Yahushua] means Yahuah-Saviour. Yahushua said “Moses wrote about Me”!

viYou have returned to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls: Seeing that only Yisra’el (both Houses) “were continually straying like sheep”, it follows that only Yisra’el was in the unique situation to be said of her “but now EPISTREFW [you have returned=a LXX word] to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls” (1 Peter 2:25). Gentiles, per se, do not “return”. The verb could only apply to Efrayim-Yisra’el who went astray before their captivity and are now returning. Refer also to Devarim 30 where the word bwv [shub=return=LXX EPISTREFW] is used as applicable to Yisra’el. Peter’s use of the words, “you have returned to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls” implies that there is a dormant seed programmed at the time of the divine election of Yisra’el within the heart and consciousness of every “pilgrim” child of Abraham, Yitschaq and Yaqob that merely requires awakening by reprogramming and carries a potential of return viiThat is the “other” sheep of the scattered House of Israel fold

viiiThat is the “this” fold of the domestic House of Yahudah fold

ixNote well, the name [YHWV [Yahushua] has universal pre-eminance, but His people have forgotten His name!

xNote that His O.T. and His N.T. names, YHWH [Yahuah] and [YHWH [Yahushua], are used here interchangably for Yahushua is Yahuah

xi See my Table 1

xii From Christos – which is from the Koine Greek for the Hebrew Mashiach

xiii[vwhy [Yahushua SEC #H3091] is mentioned 222 times in the Tanak [the Hebrew Scriptures] and more especially in the Torah where the name refers primarily to “Joshua” son of Nun, e.g., Shemoth 17:9; 24:13; 32:17; 33:11; Bamidbar 13:16; 27:18; and also typically of HaMashiach in Devarim 18:15-19. And the prefix why [Yahu] in [vwhy [Yahushua] is also the prefix in hwhy [Yahueh], the Father’s Personal Name, demonstrating their intimate bosom unity. Furthermore, the Prophet Zakaryah (Zakaryah 6:11-13) spelled His Name out as such 2500 years ago, more than two centuries before the Hebrew Tanak was translated into the Koine Septuagint in 285 BCE xiv xyvmh [HaMashiach] is the Hebrew for “the Messiah”

xv Interpreter’s Bible: Note on Matthew 1:21. Moreover, the play on words is not possible in Koine, because the Koine name IHSOUS [Ihsous], pronounced “ee-ay-souce”, does not carry any hint whatsoever of Saviour, salvation nor of save of which the Koine root verb is SWZW [sodzo=save] {spelled: sigma-omega-zeta-omega} SEC #G4982. In contradistinction [vwhy, [Yahushua], pronounced “yashuah”, means primarily Saviour, or Yahueh is salvation or Yahueh saves or Yahueh is Saviour. This fact alone disqualifies the name IHSOUS xvi According to Wikipedia the Hebrew year 3757-3758 corresponded with the traditional proleptic Gregorian-Julian calendar date of 4 BC.

The traditional proleptic Gregorian-Julian calendars [as in the case with the Hebrew Calendar] do not have a year 0 at the BCE/CE junction and instead use the ordinal numbers 1, 2, 3 – both for years CE and BCE. Thus the traditional time line is 3 BCE, 2 BCE, 1 BCE, CE 1, and CE 2 and CE 3; so the arithmetic need not be interrupted for the countdown of 476 yrs BCE to run concurrently with the CE years xvii The year 3790 was unique because the days 10th and 14th Nisan fell on:

[1] A 7th day Shabbath HaGadol followed by,

[2] A Wednesday Erev Pesach,

[3] A Thursday Shabbath Pesach,

[4] Distinctly allowing for 3 full days and 3 full nights in the tomb and,

[5] Followed by [vwhy [Yahushua]’s 7th day Shabbath Havdalah Resurrection

For the Hebrew year refer to the Aishluach calendar: http://www.aish.com/jl/rg/48970511.html 10th Nisan is the 173880th day (476 years) from Nisan 3314 [476+3314=3790] that xyvm [Mashiach=Messiah] the dgn [Nagid=Prince] was both “manifested as Prince” and then “cut off” between this 10th Nisan and 14th Nisan 3790 within the same trmvm [Mishmereth=Preservation of the Perfect Pesach Lamb] 5 days. (Shemoth 12:3-8)

xviii The Decree by the Persian King, Artaxerxes 1 Longimanus (foreseen in Daniel 9:25, 26a, fulfilled in Nechemyah 1:1-4; 2:1-8), during the month Nisan in the 20th year of his reign (2:1), issued to Nechemyah (2:8) circa 445 BCE (in Solar yrs). Refer the Zodhiates Hebrew-Greek Key Study Bible, Introduction to Ezra Nechemyah and Daniel with Notes pages 625, 639, 1072, and 1090. This was the Decree “to restore and rebuild Yerushalayim” by Artaxerxes 1 Longimanus, resulting in the return of the 3rd group of exiles from Babylon (Nechemyah 2:1, 9), as distinguished from former Decrees to rebuild the Temple [Artaxerxes 1 Longimanus in 458-457 BCE (Ezra 7:12-26) and Cyrus in 538 BCE, 93 years before] (Ezra 1:2-4). Nisan is the month of the Pesach Festival ordained by hwhy [Yahueh] for all Yisra’el in Shemoth 12:2-28. This Pesach in the Hebrew year 3314 plus the 476 years to run to Mashiach the Prince brings us “spot-on” to Pesach in the Hebrew year 3790 [3314+476=3790] and is 69 Lunar [bv [shabua] or (69x7x360)=(173 880) days

xix See my paper “Israel’s Astounding Accurate Prophecy”

xx Me … Him – The change of person is due to Yahueh-Mashiach speaking in His own person first, then the prophet speaking of Him. [Jamieson, Fausset and Brown Commentary]

xxi The Hebrew term, rwkb [firstborn SEC #H1060], translated usually in the LXX by ΠΡΩΤΌΤΟΚΟS, has unmistakable Messianic overtones as the use of the Greek term in the NT to describe Yahushua makes clear (cf. Col 1:15, 18). Thus, the idea of Yahueh being pierced sets the stage for the fatal wounding of Yahushua, the Messiah and the Son of Elohim [cf. John 19:37]. Note that some English translations supply “son” from the context (e.g., NIV, TEV, NLT)

xxii “It was the day of Preparation and the Shabbath was beginning. The women who had accompanied [vwhy [Yahushua] from Galilee followed, and they saw the tomb and how His body was laid in it” (Luke 23:53, 54). [The Church has failed to see that Pesach (on the following day, “Thursday”) was a “High” Shabbath and not the normal 7th day Shabbath; the day known to us as “Good Friday” is, as in the case of “Sunday,” a Supersessionist invention of the antisemitic Roman Church

xxiii The year 3790 fell within range of the most recent hjmv tnv [Shnat Shmitah=Year of Release, Sabbatical Year 3787]: It is truly amazing that Yahushua’s final year fell within a 45-month range of the most recent hjmv tnv [Shnat Shmitah=Year of Release, Sabbatical Year] on 10th Tishrei [Yom Kippur] 3787 (Monday, 29th September 26 CE) and was preceded by the Shabbath Shuva [Sabbath of Return]. Yahushua was “about” 30 years old (Luke 3:23) at this time and it is probable that the Scripture passage He read was chosen to synchronize with the hjmv tnv [Shnat Shmitah] (Yeshayahu 61:1, 2a, Luke 4:16-22). Thus the commencement of His ministry at Rosh HaShanah in the year 3787 would place the ministry of [vwhy [Yahushua] as occurring within a historical time-frame to synchronize with the terminus ad quem of the final 69th week of Daniel 9:24-27 within which the unique Pesach-HaMatzah week would fall xxiv Shiloh is an epithet for the Messiah

xxv There are two Houses of Yisrael: consisting of 12 tribes – separated into two Houses: (1) 10-tribed Efrayim of the north made captive to Assyria in circa 722 BCE and (2) 2-tribed Yehudah of the south made captive to Babylon in circa 586 BCE

xxviii Hwhy [Yahueh] is the Old Testament name of [vwhy [Yahushua] but do the majority of His people know this? The Jewish people only know Him as “HaShem” [the Name] and the Christian people by the false names of “Jesus”, “Christ”, “Lord” and “God”. His true name [YHWV [Yahushua] means Yahueh-Saviour. Yahushua said “Moses wrote about Me”!

xxix Yahueh returned to Zion as Yahushua the Messiah

xxxi A clear reference to Yahushua at the time of His crucifixion

xxxiiNote the biblical recognition of the existence of two Houses of Israel, Ephrayim and Yehudah

xxxiii “Two professors at Oxford, Gilbert West and Lord Lyttleton, were determined to destroy the basis of the C faith. West was going to demonstrate the fallacy of the resurrection and Lyttleton was going to prove that Saul of Tarsus had never been converted. Both men came to the opposite conclusion and became ardent followers of Jesus (sic) [Yahushua]. Lord Lyttleton writes: ‘The conversion and apostleship of Saul alone, duly considered, was of itself a demonstration sufficient to prove Christianity to be a Divine Revelation.’” Quoted from page 84 “More than a Carpenter” by Josh McDowell

Like as many were astonished at thee, (his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men), so shall he sprinkle many nations; kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they understand” (Yeshayahu 52:13-15)

xl The spurious morphology evolved over a period of about 1985 years [285 BCE-1700 CE]

xli Mosheh is the Hebrew for Moses

xlii HaMashiach is the Hebrew for “the Messiah”

xliii Zakaryah 6:11-13, typically foretold 2500 years ago, the Name [vwhy [Yahushua], letter-for-letter, of the future Davidic Priest-King

xliv The origin of the spurious morphology – a gigantic leap from [vwhy [pronounced “yashuah” = salvation] to IHSOUS [pronounced “ee-aysouce”], in a wholesale disregard for Hebrew phonetics. Notice that the Koine name does not begin with the letter “J” notwithstanding that the “I” looks something like a nascent “J” (with a growing “tail”). Moreover, the Koine name contains no hint of the word “salvation”

xlviiThere were many sects of Judaism during the 1st century and they often held widely varying views, particularly with regard to HaMashiach. Unfortunately, almost all of these sects, with the exception of the Pharisees, were wiped out by the Romans, or eventually died away. So what Rabbinic Judaism presents is almost certainly not the complete picture

l The name “Jesus” is merely 300 years old and dangles at the very end of a string of pseudo names. Neither Hebrew, nor Greek, nor Latin, nor Early Modern English had a letter “J” in their alphabets li In the various types of New Covenant teaching Mashiach’s death is presented: (1) As the Covenant Sacrifice (Mark 14:24 parallel Mattithyahu 26:28 parallel Luke 22:20; Ibrim 9:15-22); (2) As the Sin Offering (Romans 8:3; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Ibrim 13:11; 1 Kepha 3:18); (3) As the Offering of the Pesach Lamb (1 Corinthians 5:7); (4) As the Sacrifice of the Day of Atonement (Ibrim 2:17; 9:12 ff) lii By the order of sacrifices, from Vayiqra 8 & 9, it seems that: (1) hafj [Chattah=The Sin Offering] occupies the most important place (Vayiqra 8:2); (2) hlwu [Olah=The Burnt Offering] comes next (Vayiqra 8:18), and (3) ~lv [Shelem=The Meat (Meal) Offering or Peace Offering] comes last of all (Vayiqra 9:4). Atonement was expressed in the Sin Offering; then the offerer could in the Burnt Offering offer himself accepted as a sweet savour (Tehilim 51:19) ascending to Yahueh; in virtue of this acceptance He enjoyed communion with Yahuah and with His people in the Peace Offering liii Although the Synagogue held the doctrine of the vicariousness and atoning character of sacrifice, no mention occurs in Rabbinic expectations of Mashiach in connection with them livMashiach is called “the Lamb” AMNOS [amnos=lamb] twice by the Baptist (Yahuchanan 1:29, 36); once by Philip applied to Mashiach from Yeshayahu 53:7 (Acts 8:32); and once by Peter (1 Kepha 1:19)

lv Mashiach’s atonement was made and accepted in Yahueh’s foreordaining before the foundation of the world (1 Kepha 1:20; Revelation 13:8), so that penitent and believing offerers of sacrifices in the First Covenant were accepted on the ground of it

lvi The Prophet Zakaryah (Zakaryah 6:11-13) spelled His Name out as such 2500 years ago, more than two centuries before the Hebrew Tanak was translated into the Koine Septuagint in 285 BCE

i.e., pinpointed as the day that Mashiach was manifested as the Prince and Coming King of Yisra’el, the day that has been stolen by the Church and christened “Palm Sunday”. The events are documented in Luke 19:28-44. This was the Shabbath HaGadol that (a) He rode up to Yerushalayim in fulfillment of Zakaryah 9:9; (b) that He was acknowledged by His disciples thus fulfilling Tehilim 118:22-26; (c) that He accepted their praise (verses 39, 40); (d) but that the official Jewish leadership failed to recognize the “things that belong to their peace” (Luke 19:42) [See “the six things” to quote]: “Seventy weeks are decreed upon your people and upon your holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sin, and to forgive iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal vision and prophet, and to anoint the most holy place” (Daniel 9:24). As these six things did not happen in the Hebrew year 3790 (30 CE), because of official unbelief, their fulfillment waits the time that all Yisra’el, including Yehudah, will acknowledge [vwhy [Yahushua] and say, “Blessed is He that comes in the Name of hwhy [Yahueh]” (Mattithyahu 23:39)
