Hebrew Gospel of Matthew (Translated by George Howard)

Scripture references and comments by 


My primary focus of Matthew is on the Teachings of Jesus and being a disciple who faithfully observes and keeps the Instructions of the Father (Elohim).  Many passages of scripture are noted and discussed throughout the text.  Supporting texts provide compelling evidence that Jesus' teachings match the Standards given by Elohim in the Covenant record we all have at this time, and they also give evidence he had to have been inspired by the Spirit of Elohim to teach according to the Original Covenant Standards, as published in THE VALEDICTION OF MOSES, by Idan Dershowitz, and The Moses Scroll by Ross Nichols. The Shem-Tob copy is not without alteration, and the Greek Matthew was further altered about 85 CE - as noted from quotes to the Hebrew Scriptures,the Dead Sea Scrolls Bible, and "The Valediction of Moses," and other points brought up in the comments.   



Every disciple of Jesus (Joshua 2 - "that prophet" of Deuteronomy 18), should pay close attention to the Teachings of Jesus and their alignment to the Teachings and Covenants of Elohim in the Torah, Prophets and Psalms.  I offer my current viewpoints for consideration and invite everyone to participate through careful observation of the alignment of the teachings of Jesus to the Teachings of God as given throughout the records of the Hebrew Scripture, Valediction of Moses, and Dead Sea Scrolls Bible.  All are invited to search these things out, that we then be able to disciples of Jesus indeed - not merely by "faith alone", "grace alone", or deceived by the lies of those who testify against the justice and goodness in the Teachings of Elohim Almighty.  "What does God require of thee, O man, but to live justly, love mercy, and walk humbly before thy God?"  Jesus said his disciples will live by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. 



Throughout the centuries men have not been careful with the records, and we need to grasp that God will be faithful to His words of life, and He is not bound to be faithful to the words of those who testify against what He Decreed.  Moses, Isaiah, Jesus - nor a Priest, Rabbi, Sage, Pope, Preacher or self appointed  Apostle - no one had the authority to set aside the Decreed Standards that Elohim said are the basis of both life and death - blessings and curses - good and evil.  Jesus renewed the Covenant Standards of Elohim, as they are the context to each one.  The 'new' Covenant is as told by Ezekiel, that God would give of His spirit to aid writing His words on our hearts to do them - the Spirit helps us, comforts, and helps lead us in His pathways, that our hearts become alive - rather than be as a cold stone - that we have an abiding and living desire to grow to be all we can be - that He helps us to grow and mature.  Because this is the stated will of God, the Prophets and The Prophet Jesus (Joshua 2), we must realize that anyone who says they are inspired by the Holy Spirit, but who reject doing the stated will of God or teachings of Jesus in Matthew - are either ignorant of the truth, or are not in possession of the True Spirit of Elohim.

Previously I had relied on the Matthew text of the "Aramaic to English New Testament" (AENT) by Andrew Gabriel Roth, which reports to be a copy maintained since 160 AD (*original Hebrew of Matthew was reported to have been accepted before 40 CE - the Greek dates to about 85 CE, and the AENT came after them).  There are some differences, and I believe that by 160 the account suffered some from alteration.  In matters of seeming conflict the AENT was consulted, and in some cases I believe it reported the original textual evidence, but in some cases I believe the Hebrew account of George Howard is more original - and "original" was determined by which fit best with the Teachings given via Elohim and the Prophets in the DSS and Valediction account or the unaltered Hebrew Scriptures - it's been a "mine-field" to wade through, but given the alterations and lies (fake scripture) we have been told - a necessary process if we are to able to discern truth from lies by the Instruction, Teaching and Warnings from Elohim and His true unaltered prophets of record.  I have no axe to grind, but to offer my findings in an effort to refocus our hearts, souls and minds to see if Jesus (Joshua) did teach the "Holy Way" of Isaiah 35, 42, and 56 - that it is  honorable for all men to hold fast to the Covenant and Teachings of Elohim (Isaiah 56)... not just Jews and Jewish converts.  (Judaism apparently altered Deuteronomy from 5 pages to 34 chapters!  Why alter the words of Elohim or Moses?)



Three principles should support a sound conclusion: 

 1.     The Teachings and Instructions of God are eternally true; God is faithful to His word;

 2.    His Instructions are not too difficult to know for anyone whose desire is to know God and live justly and reasonably with God, themselves and fellow humans;

 3.     His Instructions, Teachings, and Judgments are not too hard to do:

 4.     Therefore, mankind is capable to serve God and keep (hold fast to) His Teachings (Commandments/Instruction in righteousness). We've all been misled about what God said, and alterations to Scripture is easily proven. Two minor alterations in the text of George Howard in “The Hebrew Gospel of Matthew”. Yehoshua, or Yahoshua, or Jesus, should be Joshua in modern English translation.  Second, identifying likely alterations of the text by the time Shem-Tob copied it. Some critical text of prophecy from the Dead Sea Scrolls Bible is noted, as well as some of the Jewish Scripture accounts.  These sources evidence that what Jesus taught was according to the words of God (Elohim/YHWH) as it existed in his days (Dead Sea Scrolls Bible and Hebrew Scripture - Tanach and THE VALEDICTION OF MOSES), which proves the long standing Jewish and Christian records have been altered and were accepted by threat of death from "Rome" by our "fathers" of faith.  Update for 2021: Publication of "The Valediction of Moses" ( "V" - proto Deuteronomy) provides compelling proof that Judaism altered the words of God in the Covenant/Pact given from Sinai by Elohim!  Some of these matters are at the core of this study.  We've all been told that Moses wrote the first five books of our Bibles.  We can now see ancients altered Deuteronomy from a very simple and compelling Covenant account to become 34 chapters of Jewish Law Codes.  "V" contains internal evidence it was written by Moses - first person narratives.  The rest of the "Torah" lacks this.  Another evidence against the "Torah" we have today is Archeological evidences in "Israel" are not supporting the narrative told in the Torah as we have it.  There is also textual evidence it was developed by multiple authors over time - and as such, is nearly as worthless as the writings of Rabbi since 300 BC.  The records of the Prophets are also altered, as are some of the Psalms.  If have a desire to make sure you are living as Elohim and Jesus said we should - Prepare to see the truth of Elohim as has not been told in three thousand years!!!  See THE GOSPEL AND THE LAW link for further specific information.


[] comments on some passages by Richard Epler of

Some scholars question if 1:18-23 is in the original.  Personally, if we are interested to be disciple - chapter 1 has little to offer by way of his teachings.  Some newer critical scholarship offers good reason to see all of Matthew 1 is an addition to the original Matthew.  Shem-Tob (1200 CE) wrote after Hebrew revision of the Masoretic text in 900 CE.  It must also be noted now, after March of 2021, that the Ten Decrees Covenant as given by Elohim were altered by Judaism back in the Iron Age, near the time of Ezekiel.  Several major changes exist, and I'm sure Elohim will invite every one of us to observe His words before they were altered.  It appears the curse element, or who will be considered "cursed" is found within the "Blessings and Curses" accounts are more true to the Original Standards given by Elohim in the Sinai Decrees.  Those who are cursed are those He identified, not as altered by Judaism back then, or as told today - they have neglected judging themselves by the Covenant Standards of Elohim.  This is a very serious matter to consider if we seek to be among those Elohim considers "My people."  It's time to "get real" with Elohim, and that we "get real" with ourselves and our fellow mankind. 

Our problem stems from those who have sworn falsely in His NAME (Elohim or YHWH), and those who have given and supported false charges, of which Orthodox Judaism is king of all time.  They, after all, consider themselves justified, if not blessed, to have had Jesus killed - with the aid of Rome.   Beware both of them as you observe the real Teachings, Judgments, and Mercy of Elohim contained in the Covenant and the telling of Isaiah 42, 53, 56, and 57.]]  Zionist Orthodox Judaism greatly twist the words of God and the prophet Isaiah - especially the pivital passages in Isaiah 53.  Be sure to watch this video:

Isaiah 53: Toviah Singer's Criticism Uses Unheard of Reading that Materially Mismatches JPS & Leeser (



The Hebrew Matthew appears to be “this gospel” Jesus spoke of in Matthew 24, that would be testified to the nations of him, and then the end would come.  Take heed to where we have believed false prophets, false scribes, false apostles, or whoever dared to alter the words of God.  Why did those before us not know these things?  It’s time to demand we are given the truth, not lies and half-truths. God clearly gave us instructions so we would not be deceived.

Discover the unaltered words of God and Joshua (Yeshua/Jesus) that we might know the words of Elohim word are true, unchanging, and fully reliable to accomplish what He gave it to do in the lives of those whose love for Him is genuine and faithful.

We should all thank Elohim Almighty for preserving much of the text via Shem Tob, and it’s translation by George Howard, that we might discover the truth that will set us free from the prison houses of religious confusions, to freedom as found in love of Elohim that can only be known through a love that is faithful to Him and  doing His will – as exampled and taught by  Yeshua, “that prophet”, son of David, son of man - the one Elohim establised to be King (see baptism by John references).



 Hebrew Gospel of Matthew




Chapter 1


1.     These are the generations of Yeshua (Joshua/Jesus/Yehoshua) the son of David, the son of Abraham. [Note the promises of God to Abraham and David.  It is correct to recall where the words of God source the matters from prophecy about the "anointed one" (Messiah).  Luke traces back to Adam, but we should be looking from when God gave the prophecies, the earliest of which are Genesis 49:10, but this continued on through the descendents of David.  The words of God to Eve and the Serpent were plural "seed", not a singular "Christ versus Anti-Christ."  The prophecied "seed" of both being plural - what we do determines whether we are of Elohim or Satan.  Yehoshua taught what Isaiah 35 called "the Holy Way" - the level highway that was to make straight the pathway to God by repenting and observing what Elohim Taught and Instructed.]

2.  Abraham begot Isaac and Isaac begot Jacob; Jacob begot Judah and his brothers.

3.  Judah begot Pere and Zarah from Tamar; Pere begot Hezron; Hezron begot Ram.

4.  Ram begot Amminadab; Amminadab begot Nahshon; Nahshon begot Salmon.

5.   Salmon begot Boaz from Rahab the harlot (inkeeper?); Boaz begot Obed from Ruth and Obed begot Jesse.

6.  Jesse begot David; David begot Solomon from the wife of Uriah.

7.   Solomon begot Rehoboam; Rehoboam begot Abria; Abia begot Asa.

8.  Asa begot Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat begot Joram; Joram begot Uzziah.

9.  Uzziah begot Jotham, Jotham begot Ahaz, Ahaz begot Hezekiah.

10. Hezekiah begot Manasseh; Manasseh begot Amon; Amon begot Josiah.

11.  Josiah begot Jeconiah and his brothers in the Babylonian exile.

12. After the Babylonian exile Jeconiah begot Shealtiel; Shealtiel begot Zerubbabel.

13. Zerubbabel begot Abihud; Abihud begot Eliakim; Eliakim begot Azor.

14. Azor begot Zadok; Zadok begot Achim; Achim begot Elihud.

15. Elihud begot Eleazar; Eleazar begot Mattan; Mattan begot Jacob.

16.  Jacob begot Joseph.  This Joseph was the husband/betrothed? of Mary the mother of Jesus who is called the Messiah, that is, Christ. [[[Note video link above that evidences Joseph, Mary's betrothed, was the father of Jesus.  Jesus was born to Mary and Joseph - not a virgin birth as in Mithrism beliefs that were borrowed from Egyptian pagan beliefs.  Another possible proof of our Scriptures being altered - ancient evidence from the writings of earliest Christians accounts.]]]]

17.  So all the generations from Abraham unto David were fourteen generations and from David unto the Babylonian exile were fourteen generations and from the Babylonian exile unto Yeshua were fourteen generations. [Genealogy was given to establish him to be the “shoot” arising out of the root of the tribe of Judah and of the seed David  that was prophesied.]

18. The birth of Yeshua was in this way: It came to pass when his mother was betrothed to Joseph, before he knew her, she was found pregnant by the Holy Spirit. (Note later at  his baptism when the voice from heaven declared the only Oracle of Elohim in the Psalms - begotten of God at his baptism, not at his birth.  The "Spirit" is always an active force of God, as in the creation account - not a separate person of "The Godhead Three".)

19.  Joseph was a righteous man and did not wish to dwell with her nor expose her by bringing her to shame or to bind her over to death.  He rather wished to conceal her.

20.  While he thought on this matter in his heart, behold an angel appeared unto him in a dream and said: Joseph son of David do not fear to take your wife Mary because she is pregnant by the Holy Spirit. [[of the seed of the woman and the offspring of David]]

21.  She will bear a son and you will call his name Yeshua (Joshua) because he will save my people from their sins. [[The name “Yeshua” means “salvation” – to turn God’s people away from their iniquity (Lawlessness) to do what God had instructed (Torah/instruction in righteousness) (God blesses and saves those who keep His Covenant, and He alone is our Savior, Redeemer and God (Isaiah 43-45)– bringing them to repent from their heart to then live justly by the Instructions of God and distinguish between that which is good and evil, and secular versus holy.  Note the Teachings of God in Isaiah 1 and Ezekiel 18 go with the Decrees and Covenant of God ratified at Mount Sinai, and neither of these prophets teachings say God requires a blood sacrifice to forgive, but that forgiveness is based on abandoning evil and learning to improve ourselves in doing what God declared justice and righteousness (good).]]  Note references later that speak to Jesus' blessing us in calling us to return to God and doing His will, not that he was a sin sacrifice.)]]

22.  All this was to complete what was written by the prophet according to the Lord:

23.  Behold the young woman is conceiving and will bear a son and you will call his name Emmanuel, that is, God with us. [[[There is no prophecy of human sacrifice of the Messiah to cover the sins of Israel or the nations – Isaiah did prophecy of one who was going to make the Torah honorable for Gentiles to also keep – Isaiah 42.  Isaiah’s son of Isaiah 7 was never noted for doing anything – thereby the prophecy remained unfulfilled of the one to whom it would be considered “God with us” – the unique Prophet that Moses foretold to come and hear “whatsoever he saith unto you”.  It is reasonable to see the prophecy in Isaiah 7 was fulfilled, just as Isaiah gave it.  The matter resides in whether it was a dual prophecy - or not.  If Yeshua spoke the words of God as no other prophet – and was directly inspired in his teachings as no other prophet in the history of Israel,  – by the direct indwelling (Anointed of God) of the Spirit to speak what God declared to him – this could be the correct understanding of his role and substantiate the need to know and do whatever he taught, as God confirmed his words by great signs, just as He had done for Moses – who was also called to be “God” to Aaron and Pharaoh.  The primary prophecy in Isaiah 7 was fulfilled during Isaiah's day, just as Isaiah's disciples recorded.  What was said here regards that the passage is found in Matthew.  In both cases, Mary and the wife of Isaiah, they both were already pregnant when the prophecy was noted to be said - so "virgin" in the Greek based Matthew is really a useless or misleading term and leads away from the point at hand - that Yahoshua was born as told and that he had a direct mission statement from God of what his purpose in life was to be, and later God again decreed His Oracle from the Psalms at his baptism by John: "This day have I begotten thee." - not that he was born a demi-god.]]]

24. Then Joseph awoke from his sleep and did according to all which the angel of the Lord commanded him and took his wife.

25.  But he did not know her until she bore her firstborn son and he called his name Yeshua (Joshua).



Chapter 2

1.    It came to pass when Yeshua was born in Bethlehem of Judah in the days of Herod the king, behold astrologers came from the East to Jerusalem saying:

2.  Where is the king of the Jews who has been born.  We have seen (his star) in the East and have come with important gifts to worship him.

3.  Herod the king heard and was dismayed and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem with him.

4.  So he gathered all his nobles and inquired from them if they knew where the Messiah (anointed one) would be born.

5.   They answered him: In Bethlehem Judah, as it is written according to the prophet:

6.  You Bethlehem Judah, Ephrathah, land of Judah, behold you are insignificant among the clans of Judah; from you shall come forth to me one to be ruler in Israel. [Micah 5:2]

7.   Then King Herod called the astrologers in secret and asked them well concerning the time the star appeared to them.  [Prophecy in Daniel was known to them, and they knew the timing and had come to seek him out.  To date Daniel is in the “writings” of the Hebrew Scripture – not the “Prophets;” Isaiah was also altered in the MT.  See "Dead Sea Scrolls Bible" footnotes for proof.]  [side note - Romans 16:11 has Paul noting his relative directly related to Herod]

8.  He sent them to Bethlehem and said unto them: Go and inquire well concerning the child and when you find him inform me.  I also will go to him to worship.

9.  They harkened unto the king and went and behold the star which they saw in the East was going before then until they came to the place.  When they entered Bethlehem, it stopped before the place where the child was. 

10. When they saw the star they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy.

11.  They came into the house, found him and his mother Mary, knelt before him, worshipped him, opened their sacks, and brought to him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. [coming king, role to “My people”, foretold death on the cross, and one who was to “ascend to the Ancient of Days and return in judgment/rule.  See 1 Enoch and the three parables – starting at 1 Enoch 38; Daniel 7:9, 13, 14; 9-11; Mt. 25:31; 26:64, and called out of Egypt – Hos. 11:1 and stem of Jesse Is. 11:1-5.] [[Hosea 11 is an example to see God first called Israel “My son”, and it also spoke of Jesus (Yeshua) as the unique son foretold and fulfilled again here in Matthew’s account.  Hosea 11:1, JPS; “When Israel was a lad I loved him, and since Egypt I have been calling out to My son.” ]]

12.  Then they were commanded in a dream by the angel who spoke to them not to return to Herod; so they returned to their land by another route.

13. As they were going, behold the angel of the Lord appeared unto Joseph saying: Arise, take the boy and his mother, flee to Egypt and stay there until I tell you, because Herod will seek the boy to kill him.

14. So he took the boy and his mother

15. And was there until Herod died, to fulfill [complete]what was spoken by the prophet: Out of Egypt I called my son. [Israel was said to be “My son,”(Ex. 4:22) but Yeshua as the unique “son” and “son of man” was shown approved by God through his Testimony/Teachings, miracles, resurrection and ascension to the “Ancient of Days”- thereby making the prophecies complete – fulfilled of Isaiah 11:1-4 = Israel first as a nation (Ex. 4:22), then Deut. 18:15-18 in a specific person to “complete”, “that prophet,”  the Torah and Prophets foretelling.]

16. Then Herod saw that the astrologers had mocked him and was very displeased.  Being grieved at heart, he commanded that word be sent to all his princes to kill all the male children who were in Bethlehem and its borders who had been born from the time when the astrologers spoke to him concerning the birth of the boy. [the telling about Moses, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Israel; the telling about Yeshua - Abraham, Moses with Israel, then Yeshua were all called out of Egypt (a pattern of fulfillment)]] [[[Evidence now exposes that Paul was likely raised in the Herodian household - just another piece of evidence we should have noted before from Romans 16:11; 'Great Herodian my kinsman' - yes - the family of the Herod that sought to have Jesus killed as an infant - and his successor was likely just as willing to have him killed as an adult!  Paul was of the same wicked family.  What proof exists that the Herodians of Paul's days converted to "Christianity" or the "Ebionites" or "Nazarines"?  Had we paid attention to Jesus, we never would have believed a word of Paul!]]]

17. Then was fulfilled that which Jeremiah the prophet spoke:

18. A voice was heard in Rama, lamentation and bitter weeping, Rachel weeping for her children, etc.  [ Jeremiah 31:15, or 31:14 in JPS.  Shem-Tob took liberty with the text before him] [[Note Jeremiah 30 and 31 regarding the regathering of Israel when they turn to God with their whole heart – in repentance to hear “that prophet”.  The original disciples of Yeshua were Jews, and the good news *Gospel" was to be taught to people of all nations - not just Israel.  Jesus re-established the Covenant of Elohim is for all men who repent and keep the Covenant as given by Elohim at Sinai.  This also goes to the point made in Isaiah that those of the nations who hold fast to the Covenant and keep the Sabbath will be blessed and accepted by Elohim. (*****Isaiah 56:1-8:  "Thus said Elohim: Observe justice and perform righteousness, for My salvation is soon to come and My righteousness to be revealed.  Praiseworthy is the man who does this and the person who grasps it tightly: who guards the Sabbath against desecrating it and guards his hand against doing any evil.  Let not the foreigner; who has joined himself to Elohim, speak, saying Elohim will utterly separate me from His people; and let not the barren one say 'Behold I am a shriveled tree.'  For thus said Elohim to the barren ones who observe My Sabbaths and choose what I desire, and grasp My covenant tightly: In My house and within My walls I will give them a place of honor and renown, which is better than sons and daughters; eternal renown will I give them, which will never be terminated.  And the foreigners who join themselves to Elohim to serve Him and love the Name of YHWH to become servants unto Him, all who guard the Sabbath against desecration, and grasp My covenant tightly - I will bring them to My holy mountain, and I will gladden them in My house of prayer; their elevation offerings and their feast offering will find favor on My altar, for My House will be called a house of prayer for all the peoples.  The word of my Lord, YHWH Elohim, Who gathers in the dispersed of Isael: I shall gather to him even more thant those already gathered  to him."  Recall this passage when reading the account of Yeshua at the Temple declaring this is what God said, that "My house will be called a house of prayer for all the peoples" - the area of prayer for the gentiles is where they were conducting the trade and money exchange at the Temple, which is what angered Joshua.)]]

19.  It came to pass when King Herod died, the angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt

20. saying: Arise, take the boy and his mother and go to the land of Israel, because those who were seeking the boy to kill him are dead.

21. So he arose, took the boy and his mother, and they returned to the land of Israel.

22. Then he heard that Horeanus, his name is Argelaus, reigned in Judah in the place of Herod his father, and he feared to go there.  So the angel of the Lord urged him in a dream that he should turn unto the land of Gilgal.

23. He came and dwelt in a city called Nazarith in order to fulfill what the prophet said: He shall be called Nazareth.  [See footnotes in the AENT of the relationship of the word for shoot – netzer – being at the root, and the point being Jesus was the shoot of Jesse.  Possibly the text Shem-Tob had was already mistranslated or altered.  This might also be to view Yeshua’s teaching to them and being a great light to them to be the literal completion of the prophecy in Isaiah 11: 1-5?  Netzer prophecy is also in the Zodiac.  Zodiac references a separate guarded study of “The Gospel of the Stars” by Joseph Seiss, 1884.  Also note in the passion trial events that Peter was associated with Jesus because he was seen with Jesus at Nazareth.  Beware trust in D. James Kennedy's "The Real Meaning of the Zodiac" series, as it is largely seen through the Greek perversion that was taught by Paul and the famous poet of his own home town.  Jesus never taught his death was a human sacrifice, nor did he teach his righteousness would be accounted to anyone else buth himself!  See Ezekiel 18 and Isaiah 1.  Bloodshed is not required by God to forgive sins, true repentance to God is.]

Chapter 3

1.    In those days came John the Baptizer preaching in the wilderness of Judah.

2.  He said: Turn in repentance, for the kingdom of heaven is about to come (near, or at hand),

3.  to fulfill what was said by Isaiah the prophet: A voice of one crying in the desert prepare the way of the Lord, make straight in the wilderness a path for our God.         [Is. 40:3; then followed to Yeshua in chapter 42.  Both were participating in showing us "the Holy Way" of Isaiah 35, what God had desired all along - from the beginning.]

4.  Behold John was clothed with the hair of camels and black leather girded his loins and his food was locust [AENT turnips] and the honey of the forest. [Locust VS turnips may be evidence the text of Shem-Tob was altered, but it has no impact on the Teachings of Yeshua (Salvation).  Elijah wore animal skin, and it perhaps John did too – as “clothed with the hair of camels” might be camel skin  clothing with the hair still on the skins, and Israel should have recognized this easily from what was written of Elijah in I and II Kings.]

5.   Then they came out to him from Jerusalem, from all Judah, and from all the kingdom round about the Jordan, [It does not say river – was it the river valley area to the South, near the wilderness – near Quamran?]

6.  And at that time were confessing their sin and were baptizing in the Jordan because of his word. [Does not say Jordon River – Quamran and large spring was likely the place Jesus was baptized by John, and links Quamran scrolls to community John was from?]

7.   He saw that many of the Pharisees, that is, Pharizei, and Sadducees came to his baptism and he said to them, Offspring of serpents, who taught you to flee from the wrath to come from God? (Roots of modern "Orthodox" Judaism are from the writings of the Rabbi in what they considered the "Oral Torah" - interpolations of the Scripture from men that dissected the upright words of God to pretend their understanding was to he held in high regard.  It seems the source for their understandings stemmed from beliefs taken on before their stay in Babylon and as proven by "V", they had altered the Decree of Elohim.  Rather than providing a hedge to guard the Torah (Ten Decrees), they in fact nulified the Teachings of God and were active to obscure the simple and profound truths YHWH had given in the Covenant.  In effect they were demanding men obey them, rather than YHWH.  John spoke true judgment to them.  It's no wonder Yeshua warned against listening to them as any authority.  Wake up.  Stop supporting Israel in it's rebellion against Elohim and mankind! (see"Trial of the Ages" link.]

8.  Produce the fruit of perfect repentance. [see DSS Quamran community separation from Jerusalem due to what they saw as apostacy and the need to separate themselves in preparation for the “teacher of righteousness” they believed soon to some – and testimony of John the Baptist to Jesus (Yeshua).]   {Perfect should be understood to be in full compliance with the Covenant of YHWH}

9.  Do not say in your heart: Abraham is our father.  Truly I say to you that God is able to raise up his son Abraham from these stones.  [In the regeneration God does not require bones to resurrect even Abraham – the valley of dry bones is a prophecy of the nation of Israel.  God had already told Israel of their false security in blood sacrifices if they were not living as He instructed and decreed. Not living as He taught them - ignoring His instructions regarding justice and mercy made their sacrifice and prayers a stench in His nose that He hated.  See the words of God recorded by the prophets. His words are not complicated or hard to understand – and according to God, they are not beyond our ability to do.  To say that the "Law" is impossible to keep to the satisfaction of Elohim is to call Him a liar!]

10.  Already the axe has reached the root of the tree; the one which does not produce good fruit will be cut down and burned in the fire.  The crowds asked him: if so what shall we do?  John answered them: He who has two shirts let him give one to him who has none.  So the people came to be baptized. Many asked him: “What shall we do?  And he answered them: Be anxious for no man and do not chastise them, and be pleased with your lot.  And all the people were thinking and reckoning in their circumcised heart: John is Jesus. [Or more likely: “that John was that prophet” foretold by Moses in Deut. 18:15? minor alteration?]

11. John answered all of them: Behold I truly baptize you in the days of repentance; but another comes mightier than I, the thong of whose sandal I am not worthy to unfasten.  He will baptize you with the fire of the Holy Spirit. [Not by fire and the Holy Spirit] [[See the reason God said He would send His Spirit in Ezekiel 37  to write His word on the heart to cause doing what He instructed, which completely goes with the passages that say God gives His Spirit to those who obey Him – not to feign miracles and speaking in tongues as the end of Mark says.  Matthew and Mark teach different gospels, as testified to by different conclusions.]]

12. His winnowing fork is in his hand to fan his threshing floor and he will gather the grain into his granary and the straw he will burn with fire which is not quenched. [Mal. 3:3]

13.  Then came Yeshua from Galilee the Jordan to be baptized by John.

14.  But John was doubtful about baptizing him and said: I should be baptized you, and you come to me?

15.  Yeshua answered and said to him: Permit it, because we are obliged to fulfill all righteousness; then John baptized him. [Note baptism is regarding repenting and turning to keep the Teachings of YHWH (to fulfill all righteousness).  Note when YHWH said He will forgive.  His forgiveness has always been towards those who turn from sin and evil (forsake) to then make doing His will (The Covenant Ten Decrees) to be their Standard to live by indeed.]  Baptism (immersion in water) was also a rite performed by the priests before they put on their priestly garments to serve YHWH in the Temple.  Baptism was the initiation rite for those of the Quamran DSS community]

16. Immediately when he came up from the water, the heavens were opened to him and he saw the Spirit of God coming down like a dove and it dwelt upon him.  Then behold a voice from heaven was saying: This is my son, my beloved, he is loved very very much and my pleasure is in him. [Psalm 2:7; Isaiah 42:1] ***(((After the people were baptized, Jesus also came and was baptized by John. And as Jesus came up from the water, Heaven was opened, and He saw the Holy Spirit descend in the form of a dove and enter into Him. And a voice from Heaven said, ‘You are my beloved Son; with You I am well pleased.’ And again, ‘Today I have begotten You.’ “Immediately a great light shone around the place; and John, seeing it, said to Him, ‘Who are you, Lord? And again a voice from Heaven said, ‘This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.’ ***See the Psalm where God spoke this oracle of "This day I have begotten thee"))) [[Yeshua received the Spirit at baptism, a foretelling of the promise recorded in Acts 2:38 by Peter – that the disciples of Jesus would also receive the Spirit to comfort and guide them in the truth and righteousness God desires of “My people” – the Spirit and the Word work together to both elevate and create what God knows we can become – those who are truly His people who do His works as light and salt in the earth – to give and preserve life, truth and justice as God has always instructed from the beginning.  Yeshua taught sanctification was by the word of God, His Teachings and Covenant – not  by his blood – his unjust death should cause us to repent to do justice and mercy, rather than being accounted with those who rejected Jesus;  to turn us from iniquity to live justly, love mercy and walk humbly with God and our fellow man and to be faithful to death, just as he was.]


This Matthew, Jerome later explained, was written in Hebrew and translated into Greek. (Jerome in 393 AD explained the Ebionites-Nazarenes claimed they still maintained custody of that original copy from Matthew in a library at Caesarea.) See "Hebrew Matthew" Knol Encyclopedia.

Epiphanius recorded near 375 AD that this original Hebrew Matthew had God speak from heaven at the baptism "today I have begotten thee."

After saying many things, this Gospel [of Matthew to the Hebrews] continues: “After the people were baptized, Jesus also came and was baptized by John. And as Jesus came up from the water, Heaven was opened, and He saw the Holy Spirit descend in the form of a dove and enter into Him. And a voice from Heaven said, ‘You are my beloved Son; with You I am well pleased.’ And again, ‘Today I have begotten You.’ “Immediately a great light shone around the place; and John, seeing it, said to Him, ‘Who are you, Lord? And again a voice from Heaven said, ‘This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.’ Then John, falling down before Him, said, ‘I beseech You, Lord, baptize me!’ But He forbade him saying, ‘Let it be so; for thus it is fitting that all things be fulfilled.’” (Epiphanius, Panarion 30.13.7) [Wikipedia] 


 Chapter 4

1.  Then Yeshua was taken by the Holy Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by Satan ("Satan" means "the accuser."

2.  He fasted forty days and forty nights and afterwards was hungry. [Satan means “accuser.”  Those who accuse falsely are satans.]

3. The tempter drew near and said to him: if you are the Son of God say that these stones should turn into bread.  [Israel was called “son” of God, and “the” son would be the unique “that prophet” of Deut. 18 and Isaiah 42.]

4. Yeshua answered and said to him: It is written: not by bread alone, etc. [Here we see the text was cut short by Shem-Tob – for the sake of continuing the narrative the AENT is supplied: “It is written that the son of man does not live by bread alone, but by all the Words that proceed from the mouth of Elohim.” Deut. 8:3. We should note that after the “fall”, God informed Cain that he would be forgiven (elevated) by improving himself – not by blood sacrifice.  The whole “fallen man” as incapable to do good or find favor with God by improving himself defies these words of God.  Babies are not sinners.  Men who refuse to obey God are.  “Son of man” means to be a mortal – not God in the flesh.]]

5.  Then Satan took him to the holy city, placed him on the highest point in all the temple

6.  And said to him: If you are God, jump down, for it is written: he has commanded his angels in regard to you to keep you in all your ways, etc. [[It appears Shem-Tob was having issue to even copy the foundational Teachings as it existed in the Hebrew Matthew – again he cuts it short – and even inserted the idea of “if you are God”, which was never claimed by Yeshua or Psalm 91:11-12 – but was claimed by Paul and his disciples who hi-jacked the faith as taught by Yeshua.  This is one to be careful with the words of God that one does not pit one of His instructions against another.  The point is to be within the parameters of the word of God that we not live outside His instruction and declaration.  For the sake of continuing the narrative of his teachings, the AENT is supplied to maintain the Testimony of Yeshua:]  …6. And said to him, “If you are the son of Elohim, cast yourself down for it is written that his Messengers he commands concerning you, and upon their hands they will bear you up that your foot should not strike upon a rock.]] [[[DSSB Psalm 91:11-12; “For he will give orders to his angels concerning  you, to guard you in all your ways.  In their hands they will lift you up, so that you do not strike your foot against a stone.]]] [[[[I've personally experienced a number of times when it must have been angels who protected me, and untold numbers of people have had similar experiences.  Since this is an obvious matter to many who have experienced it, the charge or challange by Satan seems hollow in two regards - it was not just for the singular "that prophet", or "unique" son of God (of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob), and it would certainly be folly to jump off a building to "prove God true to His promises" - which is why Jesus commented on not tempting God to keep His word.  YHWH is not one to play truth or dare with.  The only "test" we should do is to make His Covenant Decrees to be our Standard for life and then realize the Teachings of YHWH are true and are the means by which He will regard us true to Him and thereby be blessed eternally.  This is what the Isaiah 56 passage is also about, as its roots trace back to Adam and Eve, Cain, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses and Mount Sinai.  This also proves Jesus was teaching to obey the Father and the Covenant.  Notice the Jewish account altered this to pretend it was something to prove "Christianity" was a lie - but the words of Jesus, as recorded by his disciples and the Holy Scriptures of support, prove their claim to be a lie.]]]]

7.  Yeshua answered him again: You shall not tempt the Lord your God. [Deut. 6:16]

8.  So Satan took him to an exceedingly high mountain, showed him all the kingdoms of the earth and their glory

9. And said to him: All these things I will give to you if you bare your head to me. [submit to Satan’s ways of twisting the Teachings of God or defying the Teachings of God.]

10.  Then Yeshua answered him: Go Satan, that is Satanas, for it is written: “I will pray to the Lord and him only you will serve. [[Again, questionable account by Shem-Tob, so the AENT is supplied: Then Y’shua said to him “Leave enemy, for it is written that you will worship Master YHWH your Elohim and Him alone you will serve.” Deut. 6:13 and Exodus 20 and "V".]] [[[Note when Israel started invoking demons, even in the Temple, and sacrifice of their children.]]]

11.  Then Satan left him and behold angels drew near to him and ministered to him.

12.  It came to pass in those days Yeshua heard that John had been delivered up to prison, so he went into Gilgal.

13.  He passed by Nazeral and dwelt in Capernaum-Raithah, that is Maritima, on the outskirts of the Land of Zebulun.

14.  In order to fulfill that which Isaiah the Prophet said:

15.  Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali, the way of the Sea, beyond the Jordon, Galillee of the gentiles.

16.  The people who walk in darkness have seen a great light, those who dwell in the land of deep darkness a light has shined upon them. [Isaiah 9:1 (8:23) 9:3 (9:2) 9:10]  Some Jews claim Yeshua only went to the Jews, but this proves early on that he went to the Gentiles.  Isaiah 42 also speaks of one who was to be a light to the Gentiles to show them it is honorable to keep the Torah (instruction in righteousness) of God – of which the Ten Declarations were given for all men – as were the standards of right and wrong;  justice and mercy; knowing who He shows kindness towards (My people VS My enemies) and knowing what God declared Holy VS common. It appears to me that the whole “7 Noahite Law” is a fabrication of the "Oral Torah", as are the "613 Commandments", as YHWH declared the Ten Decrees are the Covenant.]]

17. Henceforth Yeshua began to preach and to say: Repent for the kingdom of heaven is near. [God was to be their King, but Israel spurned God and wanted an earthly king as the other nations.  God had told them His Kingdom was near them – not some distant place – if they would simply and faithfully seek to do His will, as did Abraham – recall the words of God on this vital point: Psalm 91 and "The Valediction of Moses".  There is no need to bother with the twisting of Romans 10:8 that "all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God", as God said no such thing.  As Paul quoted Isaiah, he was denying or totally ignorant of the Truth spoken of in the first chapter of Isaiah.  Jewish folk should look into the alterations of the words throughout Isaiah evidenced as the DSSB footnotes – over 1000 changes!?  I've heard scholars working on the DSS that it may take 300 years to complete.  The obvious truths in the Decrees of God and the supporting passages that give further definition of His Teachings that include what He said is just restitution are not too hard to understand or do, and it is these matters that need to be restored to us that we live according to His Teachings and Decrees. (that we might "live justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God - YHWH.  Also carefully note the words of God through Isaiah 56 and 57  of the core truth in Exodus and "V".]

18.  Yeshua went along the shore of the sea of Galilee and saw two brothers, Shimon, who is called Simon, also called Petros, and Andrea his brother casting their nets into the sea because they were fishermen. [Acts, written by Luke, the personal biographer of Saul/Paul, testifies to the selection of the apostles to require they were with him from the beginning of his ministry, but Matthew, as written by them – testifies the Luke account is not accurate – hence one clue to not place the testimony of Luke on par with the testimony of Matthew.  Luke is second and third hand testimony at best – and per the Instruction of God should not be equated to be true “Testimony” of Yeshua by his personally chosen disciples. (see the Instructions of God about witness testimony, as well as His Teachings to determine a true prophet from a false prophet (Deut. 4, 12, 13,18, and 34]

19. He said to them come after me and I will make you fish for men. (prophecy of fishing for men fulfilled? Jeremiah 16:16; Ezekiel 49:10) [Since they had Y'shua killed, note his prophecies of the coming king and kingdom. This is also foretold in Micah that "after those days" when Yeshua came to them, that there would be another scattering of Israel to the nations (diaspora is now nearing 2000 years of unrepentance).]

20.  So they left their nets in that hour and went after him.

21.  He turned from there and saw two other brothers, James and John, brothers who were sons of Zebedeel, that is Zabadao and Zabadah, and their father in a boat setting up their nets and he called them.

22.  They hastened and left their nets and their father and followed after him.

23.  Then Yeshua went around the land of Galilee teaching their assemblies and preaching to them the good gift, that is, mavangeleo, of the kingdom of heaven and healing all the sick and every disease among the people. [Note Isaiah 53 is about his work of healing the people - review the Hebrew translations.  His bearing their sins was a load upon him, not that he was taking their sins upon himself to relieve them of their sinfulness!  Note Isaiah 1 and Ezekiel 18, as well as the word of YHWH in the Covenant prove that "Jesus" was not taking the sins of the wicked upon himself so the wicked could then be declared righteous!  How can such a belief of substitutionary righteousness be from YHWH or Yeshua or any true prophet of God?  "If they do not speak according to the Law and the Testimony, there is no light in them."][[If people can change their lives because Jesus taught to abandon evil and learn to do good so men would praise God, why must they imagine the only reason God has grace towards anyone is based on being "covered by the blood of Jesus"?  All need to grasp that the economy of God requires that repenting to Him preceeds forgiveness.  Where in all the Holy Scripture do we find God forgives anyone of their sin when they are still in rebellion against doing what He declared good? (The Ten Decrees).  It is far past time that the Covenant, as taught by God, the Prophets and That Prophet be taught to all who claim the Father in Heaven as their God.  Paul defamed what God called good, and therefore must be rejected if we believe God or any true prophet of God.]]

24.  So a report about him went into all the land Syria and they brought unto him all those who were sick from various kinds of deceases, those possessed by demons, those who were terrified by an evil spirit and those who shook, and he healed them. [Yeshua did more works than all the previous prophets of God –  God proving He was with Yeshua in healing physical decease, demon possession, control over nature, raising the dead, and raising Yeshua from the dead, and finally, his ascending to the Ancient of Days as he prophesied he would – the claim he made later in Matthew that the Jews considered blasphemy and who gathered false witnesses to say he claimed to be the Son of God – in Matthew was said to be the false charge.  Yeshua came to call us from iniquity to do the will of God, which is why he emphasized his Teachings being from God, - Isaiah 42.  Pay very close attention to this – did Yeshua teach the need for faithfulness to God through living rightly as God taught and instructed – or did he teach the Law was done away with because He fulfilled it and became to once for all human sacrifice to pay the price of sin for all men? (Doing the works of God, or faith alone/grace alone merely by belief in the gospel of the Cross according to Paul?)]

25.  Many followed him from Kapoli and Galilee, from Jerusalem, Juda, and across the Jordan.

 ***Supporting passages for teachings in Chapter 5 to show his teachings are according to the Torah, Psalms and Prophets. Another Dead Sea Scroll evidence: 4Q521; Messianic Apocalypse.   [the heavens and the earth will listen to His Messiah, and none  therein will stray from the commandments of the holy ones.  Seekers of the Lord, strengthen youselves in His service!  All you hopeful in heart, will you not find the Lord in this?  For the Lord will consider the pious and call the righteous by name.  Over the poor His spirit will hover and will renew the faithful with His power.  And He will glorify the pious on the throne of the eternal Kingdom.  He who liberates the captives, restores sight to the blind, straightens the bent  and forever I will cleacve to the hopeful and in His mercy.  And the fruit ...   will not be delayed for anyone.  And the Lord will accimplish glorious things which have never been as he....   For He will heal the wounded, and revive the dead and bring good news to the poor. ...  He will lead the uprooted and knowledge.... and smoke..    Also see Isaiah 61:1,2, and the dialogue with the disciples of John the Baptist who were sent to Jesus while John was in jail - "are you the one"?  Evidently not all the prophets writings made it into our current Bibles.


    1.     Chapter 5 – The Sermon on the Mount

       1.       It came to pass after this when he saw the crowds that he went upon the mountain and sat down.  Then his disciples (came to) him

       2.       And he opened his mouth and spoke to them saying:

       3.       Blessed are the humble of spirit for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Is. 57:15; 66:2

       4.       Blessed are those who wait for they shall be comforted. Is. 66:2; 66: 10-12

       5.       Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth. Ps. 37:11; 149:4

       6.       [missing – AENT supplied]: Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness because they will be satisfied. Ze. 2:3; Ps. 11:3-7; Is 56:1-8; 66:11-12.

       7.       [missing – AENT supplied]: Blessed are they who are merciful because mercies will be upon them. Ps. 18:25; 2 Sa. 22:6.

      (8).     Blessed are the innocent of heart, for they shall see God.  (This is perhaps the greatest hope we can have for those who came before us, or who had no way to know they had been told to believe in lies against God or His anointed one, Jesus/Joshua.  To have an innocent heart one must become as a little child, as Jesus taught and exampled later.  Those who have hidden the Teachings of Elohim from everyone cannot have an "innocent heart", but more likely a self-worshipping heart.  This is most easily seen in the writings of the Prophets, such as Isaiah, that he was dealing with very evil people who claimed to be serving God.  As Jesus absolutely taught: take care, lest you be deceived.]]  [[Those of Rabbinical Judaism have two "Torah's", their altered version, and the "oral torah" that is based on perversion of the Teachings of God.  They don't want you to ever realize when they say "Torah", you have no way to know they may well be speaking of their own "oral torah" and not the record as given by Elohim/YHWH through Moses, or the altered record of what Elohim had spoken at Mount Sinai.  Beware all of Judaism, but be innocent of heart towards God and your fellow man.]] 

      9.       Blessed are those who pursue peace for they shall be called sons of God. Is. 26:12; Ps:122:8; 72:3-7.


      10.   Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Ps.38:20; Is. 66:5


      11.   Blessed are you when they persecute and revile you and say against you all kinds of evil for my sake, but speak falsely. Ps. 119:85-87; La. 3:22-23.


      12.   Rejoice and be glad for your reward is very great in heaven, for thus they persecuted the prophets. Ps. 37; 89:19-29. [Review historical record in the entire OT to verify that God was calling them to repent and live righteously – according to His instruction.]


      13.   At that time Jesus said to his disciples: You are salt in the world.  If the salt is neutralized in regard to its taste with what will it be salted?  It is fit for nothing but to be cast outside to be trampled under foot. Ps. 18; 37.


      14.   You are light in the world.  A city built upon a hill cannot be hidden.


      15.   They do not light a lamp to place it in a hidden place where it cannot shine; but they place it upon a lamp stand so that it might shine for all in the house.


      16.   Thus let your light shine before every man to show them your good deeds which are praised and glorified before your Father who is in heaven. Ex. 10-20. [Consider the righteous until Abram were not “Jews” or “Israel”, but men who feared God and lived circumspect lives in faithfulness to Him and teaching their children the pathways given by God.  It was not until Jesus (Yeshua) that we find the call to make disciples of His pathways as taught in Matthew – which was soon overshadowed and confused by alteration of and addition to what Christians call the “New Testament” – a term curiously used by the first heretic – Marcion.] [[All three Abrahamic faith divisions divide over who Jesus was – then further divisions were introduced by Saul/Paul and alterations to Matthew and putting three other gospel accounts after Matthew that disagree with the testimony of Jesus' disciples who had written Matthew in Hebrew before 40 CE.  The "Christian" "New Testament" is not the inerrent word of God.]]


      17.   At that time Jesus said to his disciples: Do not think that I came to annul the Torah, but to fulfill it. Du. 4, 12, 13, 18, 34. Lev. Gen. Num. Ex. Nu. *Exodus 20; Is 42.


      18.   Truly I say to you that until heaven and earth depart not one letter or dot shall be abolished from the Torah or the Prophets, because all will be fulfilled. [[Ps. 89; Torah established as an eternal and everlasting covenant – Genesis through Deuteronomy.  See the link on the Gospel and the Law and the link on how God said to know truth from lies.  The Core of the Torah are the Ten Declarations, the blessings, and the curses.  Realize that our current scriptures have been altered.  See "The Valediction of Moses" account of Deuteronomy.]].


      19.   He who shall transgress one word of these commandments and shall teach others, shall be called a vain person in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever upholds and teaches them shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.  [[If the "Commandments" were altered before Jesus' days, we may find it interesting to pay attention and see if the newly discovered Valediction of Moses account will bring more light to know Jesus taught according to the Covenant as originally given?  I find this very compelling evidence.]]


      20.   At that time Jesus said to his disciples: Truly I say to you, if your righteousness is not greater than the Pharisees and the sages, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. [Jesus was not saying the Pharisees and Sages were righteous, as we see later his condemnation of their haughty and hypocritical lives and teachings.]


      21.   Have you not heard what was said to those of old: You shall not murder and whoever murders is guilty of a judgment of death? [[Exodus 20]]


      22.   But I say to you, he who angers his companion is guilty of judgment; he who calls his brother inferior shall be guilty of judgment before the congregation; he who calls him a fool is guilty of the fire of Gehenna. [The principle is what leads to sin, and to cut off the practice before we trespass.  Note Jesus teachings about being angry without cause, as the aim is to not give cause for offence that could lead to murder among brothers, as was the case with Cain and Abel – to say we believe we have been offended and discuss it – work it out between parties, and if necessary to be established by witnesses when a brother is not being just, right, or fair.  If we love God we will seek to keep His commandments and Everlasting Covenant - as well as the Teachings of God given through Jesus (Yeshua).] [[Note the deleted Tenth Commandment: "Thou shalt not hate your brother in thy heart.  I am Elohim, your god."  Jesus, although not told of this commandment by the Pharisees or Sages, testified according to  the unaltered Standards given by God, as preserved in "V".  How did he know, except he was Anointed by Elohim to Teach it is honorable for all men to live by the Teachings/Instructions as originally given by Elohim? Also see "the blessings and the curses, which say not to desire what is anothers, and cursed is to lust after what is anothers, such as a wife.  Being unjustly angry with another was to violate the Covenant of God as it was given.]]


      23.   If you should offer your gift at the altar and remember that you have a quarrel with your companion and he is complaining about you because of this matter,


      24.   Leave your gifts there before the altar and go to appease him first and afterwards offer your gifts. [[Later prophets warning that sacrifices were useless if they weren’t living by His standards of justice and righteousness, which includes what God said is just restitution.]] [[[When the righteous uphold the Teachings and Truth of God to those who believe in the false apostles lies  - telling the Truth has never been an evil - but instead is greatly blessed by God.  See the Teaching of Jesus about those who are spoken of as evil by men because they testify the Truth of God and Jesus' Teachings.]]]


      25.   Then Jesus said to his disciples: See that you hasten to appease your enemy while you are walking with him in the way lest he deliver you to the judge and this judge delivers you to the servant to put you into prison.[Context is the Jewish court that met to take matters to the priests to decide a case, which would be binding is Torah instruction – their ruling would be as binding as the word of God.  This practice seems to have been  abandoned well before the Babylonian exile.]


      26.   Truly I say to you, you will not come out from there until the last piece of money is given.  [In the Torah a vital principle of justice is restitution, restitution as Decreed by Elohim - His defined standard of justice eliminates injustice.  Jesus did not pay for your sins.  Jesus calls us to repent of sins and then live by the Teachings of Elohim, which includes restitution as commanded by God, before God declared: "And so he shall be forgiven."  See Leviticus and the rest of the Torah and prophets.  One might even note the teachings of Daniel to the non Jew about what he should do to be forgiven of evils done.  Daniel didn't tell him to make a blood sacrifice!  Start paying attention to the words of Elohim; stop believing those who lie against Him!!!!]]]]


      27.   Again he said to them: You have heard what was said to those of long ago: You shall not commit adultery. [Exodus 20 and supporting passages in the Torah, Leviticus]


      28.   But I say to you that everyone who sees a woman and covets her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. [Law gave definition, and he was speaking of lusting after other mens wives.  This appears somewhat altered.  Look to the "Valediction" account for clarity.  Per "V" to lust after the woman/wife of another is to violate the Covenant Standards, and surely, coveting or lusting leads to the sin of adultery - both are wrong according to Elohim.]


      29.   If your right (eye) seduces you, put it out and cast is from you. [severe repentance and prevention – No record that this was to be literally taken, but is an obvious over statement to make the point.  First Century Christians didn’t gouge out eyes or cut off hands, what record exists that the Jews did either?  Where did Jesus say sin proceeds from?  Hands, feet, mouth - or heart? (mind)]]


      30.   Also, if your hand seduces you, cut it off.  It is better for you to suffer the loss of one of your limbs than all your body in Gehenna. [Severe repentance to be found living justly on the narrow pathway]


      31.   Again Jesus said to his disciples: You have heard what was said to those of long ago that everyone who leaves his wife and divorces her is to give her a bill of divorce.


      32.   And I say to you that everyone who leaves his wife is to give her a bill of divorce.  But concerning adultery, he is the one who commits adultery and he who takes her commits adultery. [Not giving a bill of divorce is to be not divorced, but committing adultery – because the Torah of Elohim commanded the certificate be given – a matter of the Law of God given through Moses.  Note other conditions for divorce given in the Torah – it cannot be that only one cause is legal – this would be taking away from His Instruction – double check the conditions therein and be enlightened to what God declared – He will uphold the unaltered word.  Check the Hebrew account and the DSSB] [[Since Jesus taught “all will be fulfilled” of the Torah, Psalms and Prophets – and it has been proven and observed the words of God contained in the both the Jewish and Christian Bibles have been altered – all need to go back to ensure what God had said by Jesus’ days in the DSSB records yet untranslated.  What is sin per Lev. 18 and all the specific words of God in the Torah? Double check!]


      33.   Again you have heard what was said to those of long ago: You shall not swear by My name falsely, but you shall return to the Lord your oath. [Exodus 20 and supporting passages]***Isaiah 66:1; Psalm 48:2; Ecclesiastes 5:4-5; also note the opening of the "Valediction" account and the Ten Teachings given by Elohim, as this teaching of Jesus show he was teaching the Truth of God, not alterations of Pharisees.  This also relates to swearing in the NAME of God falsely, which is in the Ten Decrees, the blessings and the curses.]


      34.   But I say to you not to swear in vain in any matter, neither by heaven because it is the throne of God,


      35.   nor by earth because it is the footstool of his feet, nor by Jerusalem because it is the city of God, [Lev. 19:12; Deut. 23:23; Deut. 23:23; Is 66:1; Ps. 48:2]


      36.   nor by your head for you are not able to make one hair white or black.


      37.   But let your words be yes yes or no no.  Everything in addition to this is evil.  [Being true to your word is the pathway of God – be very careful what you say you will or will not do – honor your word, fully intending what you say you can do.] [Jesus forgave and prayed for Peter – the issue is repentance and then being true.](a principle related to being created in the image of God – which leads back to the creation in Gen.) [[This also relates to the fact that Pharisee "contingencies" to separate the justice of Elohim in heaven, as opposed to doing His will on earth, is a gross injustice to do in the "NAME" of Elohim, and may well be "swearing falsely in His name."  Another matter is their teaching that non-Jews do not have a soul (not really human who is also created in the image of God and worthy to be among those He calls "My people"), as shown in the Pharisee "Law of the tent."]


      38.   Again you have heard what is said in the Torah: An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. (Ex. 21:24; Lev. 24:20; Deut. 19:21) [Read all of Leviticus 19 as God enlightens what it means to “You shall be holy, for holy am I, YHWH your God.*******]


      39.   But I say to you, do not repay evil for evil; but he who smites your right cheek provide from him the left. [Lamentations 3:30.   Turning the other cheek is about doing justly.  See the supporting passage about turning the other cheek in Lamentations.  The site link about how to tell truth from lies by the Covenant of God is the second link on the website.  Read it and know what God considers justice, which requires we know good from evil.  Current Jewish and Christian scriptures have been significantly altered.  God decreed justice as eye for eye, tooth for tooth, in current records - and the major point is there is but one law for justice - not one for Jews and a different one for everyone else.  Orthodox Judaism Oral Torah's defy those Teachings of Elohim Almighty.]



      40.   He who wishes to oppose you in judgment and to rob your shirt, leave to him your garment. [Deferring to the side of mercy in judgment?.]


      41.   He who asks you to go with him a thousand steps, go with him two thousand.


      42.   To him who asks from you give and from him who wishes to borrow from you do not hold back. [Torah teaching of God] [Love of neighbor is as yourself – not above yourself.  This relates back to John’s instruction that if we have two shirts we are able to give one to another who has none. An important side note is historical practices of lending at interest - was considered a mortal sin on the same plain as murder.  So is charging interest beyond the seven year cycle.  God gave Commandments that Judaism has been leading the world to violate and steal the wealth of nations and individuals.  Since their love of money is legenary, it would be fruitless to comment further, except to say that it was even considered a mortal sin by the Catholic Church for over 1000 years - both Jews and Catholics led the way to situational ethics to turn the mortal sin into a sin that now is not.  What did God say?  That is what matters.  Lending at interest was prohibited by God, perhaps only excepting the enemies of the faithful sons of God - which they obvoiusly have not been for perhaps 3000 years? and at least 2000 years since they justified their hatred of Jesus. (Pharisees)]


      43.   Again Jesus said to his disciples: You have heard what was said to those of long ago that you shall love the one who loves you and hate the one who hates you.


      44.   But I say to you, love your enemies and do good to the one who hates you and vexes you and pray for those who persecute you and oppress you  [Note how faithful Abraham petitioned God about His destroying Sodom if he could find but five righteous there.  This does not say we have no right to defend ourselves from oppressors, but Jesus did warn that those who live by the sword will die by the sword - God does condone self defence and justified war, as the Law gives instructions about both.]


      45.   in order that you might be sons of your father who is in heaven who causes his sun to shine of the good and evil and causes it to rain on the bad and the just. [In review of the Torah the principle was just restitution – not actually knocking out teeth  “Just” being what God had declared to be just, not what we imagine and not what others might twist it into, but what can be clearly observed to be within the just restitution of handling the words of God uprightly  Matters of going the second mile or giving our  shirt might be examples of doing what God has required of man in “loving mercy” in Micah 6:7-8 – not just living by the letter of the Law that we might demand.] [[Later distinction is made – they were to go from town to town preaching, but if they were not received – if their peace was not returned to them – that they were to shake the dust off their feet as testimony against them – the principle is of peace first, but not obligated to endure those who reject their peace.  Regarding "The Seven Noahite Laws", these are Rabbinical law, not the Law of Elohim.  Some reasonably claim that these Seven Noahite Laws justify killing Christians when Judaics are in control.  They are the ones who came up with that evil - not Elohim - and they expose their antihumanity by belief in such things.  Such ideas reject the Teachings Elohim gave to them.  To see how far they have fallen in Orthodox Zionism from what Elohim had told them - shows the reason for "the time of Jacob's trouble" to by justified by Elohim agianst them.]]


      46.   If you love those who love you what is your reward?  Do not the impudent love those who love them?


      47.   [Missing – AENT supplied]: And if you greet in peace only your brothers, what more are you doing?  Do not even the publicans do this? *[new info.  Due to the differences between the Covenant Decrees as originally given, more clarity can be observed than previous to the publication of "V", the Valediction of Moses.  Pharisee teachings obscured those Teachings of Elohim, but the Teachings of Jesus give more clarity to them.  The "publicans" were among the most hypocritical, as can be observed through the oral torah teachings of Judaism today.  God made things simple, men conmplicated His Teachings.  For example not the original Sabbath Teaching in "V", and compare that to the 700 plus pages of Pharisee Judaism's instructions they have given about how to keep the Sabbath (MISHNAH BERURAH).  The Standards given by Elohim center on preservation of life and living justly and loving God and our fellow man, and being content with what we have and not desiring what another has, or become unjust by hating a brother in our heart.]]  [[Where did God ever condone the viewpoint to do what is right in you own heart?  When we live by His Covenant, truth, justice and mercy have definition and parameters.]]  [[[[Also recall Jesus teaching that if our peace is not returned to us, that we are to dust off our feet as a testimony against them]]]] [*When Abraham negotiated with God on behalf of Sodom to find a few righteous within the city – he was not greeting them as brethren, but petitioning for their good – even his sons-in-law failed the test to be righteous and chose to stand in the pathway of destruction.]  " Know today and keep his decrees and commandments, so that it may go well for you and so that you may live long upon the land that Elohim, your god is giving you.  Listen, Israel: Elohim, our god, is a single god.  So love Elohim, your god, with all your heart and all your soul, very much, and keep these proclamations that I command you today upon your heart.  Teach them to all your children and recite them when you sit at home, when you go on your way, when you lie down, and when you rise.  Tie them as a declaration upon your arm, and they shall serve as an affirmation between your eyes.  Inscribe them upon the posts of your home and gate.  For Elohim made a pact with you at Horeb on the day of the assembly.  I stood between Elohim and you at this time - for you were afraid on account of the fire and did not climb the mountain - to tell you the word of your god, as follows: (consolidated listing).  I am Elohim, your god, who freed you from the land of Egypt, from the slave-house.  You shall not have any other gods.  You shall not make a carving or any image that is in the heavens above or the earth below or in the waters beneath the earth.  You shall not prostrate yourselves before them, and you shall not serve them.  I am Elohim, your god.  Blessed is the man who has Elohim as his god, and who prostrates himself only to him, and who serves him alone.  Cursed is the man who does a carving or a casting, the handiwork of a craftsman.  

      Sanctify the seventh day and rest on it.  For in six days I made the heavens and the earth and all that is in them, and I rested on the seventh day.  Therefore you too shall rest, along with your livestock and all that you have.  I am Elohim, your god.  Blessed is the man who sanctifies the seventh day and rests on it.  Cursed is the man who does work on the seventh day.   

      Honor your father and your mother.   I am Elohim, your god.  Blessed is he who honors his father and his mother.  Cursed is he who disgraces his father and mother.  

      You shall not slay the soul of your brother.  I am Elohim, your god.  Blessed is the man who does not avenge or exact retribution for the soul of his brother.  Cursed is he who strikes down his fellow in secret.  

      You shall not commit adultery with the woman of your fellow.  I am Elohim, your god.  Blessed is the man who does not defile the woman of his fellow. Cursed is the man who approaches any of his kin, or who commits adultery with the woman of his fellow, or who copulates with any animal.   

      You shall not steal the property of your brother.  I am Elohim, your god.  Blessed is the man who does not cheat his fellow.  Cursed is he who moves the boundary marker of his fellow.   

      You shall not swear in my name falsely (or to deceive), for I shall avenge the transgression of the fathers against the sons, grandsons, and great grandsons for those who bear my name falsely.  I am Elohim, your god.  Blessed is the man who does not swear in my name falsely.  Cursed is the man who swears falsely in my name.  

      You shall not submit against your fellow a false judgment. I am Elohim, your god.  Blessed is the man who does not deceive or lie to his fellow.  Cursed is he who takes a bribe to give false judgment against his comrade.  

      You shall not desire the woman of your fellow, his male servant, his female servant, or anything that is his.  I am Elohim, your god.  Blessed is he who does not lust after anyone belonging to his fellow.  Cursed is the man who desires and lusts after the woman of his fellow, his daughter, his female servant, or anything that is his. 

      You shall not hate your brother in your heart. I am Elohim, your god.  Blessed is the man who loves his fellow.  Cursed is the man who hates his brother in his heart.   

      It is these ten pronouncements that Elohim uttered to you upon the mountain from amid the fire.  Blessed is the man who upholds all the proclamations of this teaching to perform them. Cursed is the man who does not uphold all the proclamations of this teaching to perform them.


      48.   Be you (perfect) as your father is perfect. [passages associated with Ex. 20 and **Lev. 19.  Don't be deceived by the writings of Saul/Paul, or his disciples, who mischaracterized the Standards Elohim gave us to live by.  As Jesus taught, live by the Standards given by Elohim, not Orthodox Rabbi, or the fake apostle Paul.  Seek and ye shall find - but seek the most original Testimony - Jews even altered the Ten Decrees of God, so let's be honest with God, according to His words of life, not the lies of those following Satan, who alter and lie about what Elohim said.]


      Supporting passages for teachings in Chapter 5 to show his teachings are according to the Torah, Psalms and Prophets.

      Chapter 6




      1.      Beware lest you do your righteousness before men that they might praise you; if you do, you will have no reward from your father who is in heaven.


      2.      Again Jesus said to them; When you do righteousness do not wish to make a proclamation or sound trumpets before you as the hypocrites, that is, ipocrates, who do their righteousness in the streets and in the marketplaces in order that men might see them.  Truly I say to you, they have received their reward already.


      3.      But you when you do righteousness, let not your left hand know what your right hand is doing,


      4.      in order that your gift might be in secret and your father who sees hidden things will reward you.


      5.      At that time Jesus said to his disciples: When you pray do not raise your voice and do not be like the sad hypocrites who love to pray in the synagogues and in the corner of the courtyards and pray with haughty speech that men might hear and praise them.  Truly I say to you, they have received their reward already.


      6.      But you, when you pray, go to your couch, close your doors upon you, and pray to your father in secret, and your father who sees in secret will reward you.


      7.      So you, when you pray, do not multiply words as the heretics who think that by the multitude of words they will make them heard.


      8.      Do you not see that your father who is in heaven knows your words before you ask from him?’


      9.      But thus you shall pray: Our father, may your name be sanctified.


      10.  May your kingdom be blessed; may your will be done in heaven and on earth.  [Jesus taught defying the "contingencies" of the Pharisees, which is one reason they had him killed: because he said to obey Elohim, not man.  Jesus taught what God, Moses, Joshua, and all the true prophets taught: cease doing evil and return to God and trust in His faithfulness to His words of life towards those He can call "My people."]


      11.  Give our bread continually.


      12.  Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us,


      13.  and do not lead us into the power of temptation but keep us from all evil, amen.


      14.  If you forgive men their sins your father who is in heaven will forgive your sins.  [Do recall the teachings of Jesus are to be in accord to the Standards given by Elohim, not against them.  Per the Teachings of God in the Torah, forgiveness must be from the heart - not only in words alone.]


      15.  But if you do not forgive them he will not forgive you your sins. [Note when God commanded sins to be forgiven and also consider when He said they weren’t.]


      16.  Again he said to them: When you fast do not be as the sad hypocrites who make themselves appear sad and who change their faces to show their fasting before men; truly I say to you, they have received their reward already.


      17.  But you when you fast, wash your heads


      18.  that you might not appear to men to be fasting but (to) your father who is in secret, and your father who is in secret will reward you.


      19.  Again he said to them: Do not keep on heaping up treasures on earth so that decay and the grub devour it or thieves dig through and steal them.


      20.  Make for yourselves treasures in heaven where the worm and the grub do not devour them and where thieves do not dig through and steal. [The world to come was first spoken of in I Enoch and who will inherit it.  Jews removed it from their Scripture because Christians were using it to defend their belief and faith in Jesus; Christians removed it because it testifies the world to come is attained by right of how they lived – not faith alone, or grace alone.]


      21.  In the place where your treasure is there will be your heart.


      22.  The lamp of your body is your eyes. If your eyes look straight ahead your body shall not be dark.


      23.  If your eyes grow dim your whole body will become dark and if the light which is in you becomes dark, all your ways will be dark. [Relates to reforming our life view to match what God said is living faithfully to Him – abiding in His word.]


      24.  At that time Jesus said to his disciples: No one is able to serve two masters except he hates the one and loves the other, or he honors the one and despises the other; you cannot serve God and the world. [Paul taught against God and Jesus; one cannot serve Paul and serve God.  How can one believe someone who said the blessing of God is a curse? (Ten Decrees)  How can one believe someone who said the Covenant Standards (Ten Decrees) were not even given by God, but by lowly angels as a curse to Israel?  Awaken from the sleep the lies of Paul have placed over the real Teachings of Elohim.  Repent to obey God indeed]


      25.  Therefore I say to you; do not be anxious for the food of your souls nor for the clothing for your body, because the soul is more precious than food and the body than clothing.


      26.  Behold the birds of the sky which sow nor reap nor gather into barns, but your exalted Father feeds them.  Are you not more precious than they?


      27.  Who among you of those who are anxious is able to add to his height one cubit?’


      28.  If this is the case, by are you anxious for clothes?  Behold the lilies of Sharon, that is, “Gilyon,”in sowing they neither spin nor weave.


      29.  But I say to you that King Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like these.


      30.  If God clothes the straw which is left in the standing grain, that is, penon, which is fresh today and tomorrow is dried up and is placed into the oven, so much more will he clothe you who are little of faith.


      31.  If God so thinks of you, do not be anxious saying what shall we eat and what shall we drink, because all these things the bodies seek.  But your Father knows that you need all these things.


      32.  Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be given to you.


      33.  Do not be anxious for tomorrow because tomorrow will be anxious for itself.  Sufficient for itself is today with its trouble.




      Chapter 7


      1.      Judge not lest you be judged.


      2.      With what judgment you judge and with what measure you use, it will be measured to you. [God already gave standards for living and justice and commanded “My people” to live by them.  In proper context, this teaching deals with judging by yours or anothers standards placed above what God Declared, in effect to either add to or take away from His given Commandments, ordinances, etc...  To deny this principle would be to reject the Declarations and standards of Truth and Grace.  Elohim gave proper criteria for judging in the Law details, especially noting Leviticus and His declaring "And so he shall be forgiven."  This is the proper context of judging matters, to judge according to His Instructions.  To teach God commanded, via Jesus, that we not judge, lest we be judged, is not to be handling the words of Elohim uprightly.  In some things Elohim allows and provides for mercy, and in some thing He doesn't.  Study to show what would abiding in the words of Elohim requires we do, that we judge uprightly and according to His Teachings about Justice and Mercy.  This is where Judaism first failed, pretending to judge on earth one way, but not be accroding to the Justice of God in Heaven.  This directly relates to the"Lord's Prayer", that the will of God be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Study of the "Oral Torah" shows many places where judgment is accepted on earth, but not from Elohim in heaven.  This is why Jesus said we are to do things to where our 'yes" is yes, and our "no" is not - not a hodge-podge ad-hoc judicial system that is not in accord with the Instructions given by Elohim.  It is also this principle that shows the current account of Jesus' teachings on divorce were altered.]


      3.      Why do you see the straw in the eye of the other person but not see the beam in your own eyes?


      4.      How is it that you say to the other person: Wait for me a while and I will cast the straw out of your eyes, and behold the beam in your own eyes? (If we cannot observe ourselves, to judge ourselves to be within "The Holy Way" of Isaiah 35, how can we judge others?  Carefully study the Ten Decrees (original), and the "blessings and the curses" of Deuteronomy 11.  Do what is right, keep from that which is evil.]


      5.      Hypocrite, first cast the beam out of your eyes and afterwards you will cast the straw out of the eye of your fellowman.  [Don't be a hypocrite.  This was a main fault of the Pharisees and sages of Jesus days, and as we can now see, the "scribes" were also in league with the Pharisees and sages to alter the Covenant, as proven in "V." (The Valediction of Moses).]


      6.      Again he said to them: Do not give holy flesh to dogs nor place your pearls before swine lest they chew them before you and turn to rend you. [This was not about telling people the truth of God and of their need to repent to observe and obey Elohim, as this is exactly what Jesus was doing throughout his entire ministry.  However, regarding the real truth, if people do not accept the truth, and your peace is not returned to you, that is grounds to "shake the dust from your feet" as a testimony against them and to not bother with them anymore.  As with Sodom, people are either righteous, or not.]


      7.      Ask from God and it will be given to you, seek and you will find, knock and it will be opened to you.  [This has certainly proven true for my search for the "Original Jesus" who taught in accord with the Everlasting Covenant as given by Elohim at Mount Sinai and ratified by those of many nations who had left Egypt to serve the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.] 


      8.      Everyone who asks will receive, by the one who seeks it will be found, and to the one who calls it will be opened. [This is absolutely proven true, but not for those who are not seeking to be real with Elohim.]


      9.      Who is there among you whose son asks him for a piece of bread and he gives him a stone?


      10.  Or if he should ask for a fish, he gives him a snake?


      11.  But if you being evil come to place good gifts before yourselves, so much the more your father who is in heaven will give his good spirit to those who seek him.


      12.  Everything you wish that men should do to you, do to them; this is the Torah and the words of the prophets. [This is the principle taught in the Torah and Prophets – since Jesus upheld every word of God and said to live by every word of God – this should not be twisted to think we can set aside what God said and then just do what we see expedient – God is Judge, and He already declared what His standards and judgments are – from the first of the Ten Declarations.]  [[It may also be observed that other nations treatment of Israel during the Exodus and taking possession of the Land of Promise also examples their treatment of Israel that was then reflected back upon themselves.  Since the Judgments and Love of God are requited to be just and reciprical, this judgement also stands against an unfaithful Israel, or the unfaithful Christian.  God can forgive, but not those in active rebellion against Him or "My people."  The Ten Teachings are the Standard for all those Elohim calls "My people." (Exodus and Isaiah 56, 57]]


      13.  At that time Jesus said to his disciples: Enter in the narrow gate because the gate of destruction is wide and deep and many are going through it.


      14.  How narrow is the gate and grievous the way that leads straight to life and few are those who find it.


      15.  Again he said to them: Beware of false prophets who come to you in wool clothing like sheep, but inside are tearing wolves. [Beware false apostles and false teachers and fake gospels.]


      16.  By their deeds you will know them.  Does a man gather grapes from thorns or figs from briars? [The following points of fruits is in context to what Elohim said regarding the fruits He was due.  These are explicitly told in the Covenant Decrees, the Blessings and the Curses.  Each are very clear and easy to understand.  There should be no doubt by observations of the one doing, or the one observing what another does.  Jesus was teaching to live life so that it will be blessed by God.  Another Rabbi near Jesus time was Hillel, should you observe what Hillel taught, it is apparent he was seeing how close he could get to living a life that will not be cursed - but he had little in comparison to teaching to live a life that Elohim declared He will bless - this is a key element to understand when observing what Jesus had to say about the Pharisees and Rabbi of his day, and is why they were jealous and sought to do away with him.  Recall at the end that the regular folks who were amazed at his teachings were not recorded to be amongst the group that were crying out 'Crucify him!'  The main point herein is to also realize Isaiah 53 is talking about Jesus bearing their sicknesses, and in his unjust death - their ways of iniquity - not as a blood sacrifice for sins.  Think about this as you read on.  Observe.]


      17.  Every good tree makes good fruit and every bad tree makes bad fruit.


      18.  The good tree cannot make bad fruit, nor can the bad tree make good fruit.


      19.  Every tree which does not make good fruit is to be burned by fire.  [Recall forever that the focus of the Covenant is to live justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with God, keeping in mind that Adam was created in the image of God, and upon that premise, is both capable and responsible to become what he was created to become.  Truth has no part in lies.  God never condoned or blessed those who ignored His Standards, to then live by whatsoever the individual who justifies themselves by justifying defying Him.  Recall the Prophets spoke of those who each did what was right in their own eyes were falling backards, not progressing in the pathway of life, or the ways of Elohim.  What did God say?  "Because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee."]


      20.  Therefore it is according to fruits, that is, by their deeds, you will know them.


      21.  Because not everyone who says unto me, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven will enter the kingdom of heaven.


      22.  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name cast out demons and do many signs in your name.


      23.  Then I will say to them: I never knew you.  Depart from me all you workers of iniquity. [those who were not living by the word of God] [Ps 6:8-9; Mt 7:21; 12:50] [[In the 160 CE Aramaic the Covenant standards of God, the Ten Decrees and directly associated reference passages were the point of knowing who is working iniquity, or not.  If you think the Covenant Standards given by Elohim don't matter any more because Paul said so, you have to of necessity deny the testimony of God, all the Prophets and Psalms, as well as Joshua (Jesus).]]


      24.  Again he said to them: Everyone who hears these words and does them is like a wise man who built (his) house on a rock.


      25.  The rain came down against it and the winds beat it and it did not fall because its foundation was a rock.


      26.  Everyone who hears these my words and does not do them is like a foolish man who built his house upon the sand. [Scriptures noted are not inclusive, as many more might be noted throughout the Hebrew Scripture.   It’s about how we live life and our relationship to God and others.  Rather than being little kernals of grain with no life in them, we are enabled by His instruction to become all we were created to be – now and forever.  Elohim said, "Choose life that ye might live!"  I'll be totally honest here - those who believe the Covenant of Elohim has passed away and reject considering it any more - they have directly cursed themselves because they are rejecting the Standards Elohim gave mankind to live by!  If this makes any sense to you - why not ask your Preacher or Priest to explain why they have taught you to reject what Jesus said we must to.]


      27.  The rains came down, the floods came and fell against it, (and it fell) with a great fall.  [After years of being persecuted for telling the Truth of Elohim, know that if you do choose to believe God and choose to live a life He will bless - those of Satan will be true to their "god" and seek to destroy you for daring to believe and obey the One True God, and Orthodox and Zionist Judaism could be the proven core from which many evils on earth have found roots to. (Via many books written by their Sages - Talmuds, Zohar, Beginning of Wisdom, etc.)]]]  [[If this is not true, then how is it that the charges against Joshua have multiplied from what they accused him of before they had him killed????  See: "Trial of the Ages" link.  "King" is not an office appointed by the vote of the Rabbi - look at the records for Saul and David.]]


      28.  While Jesus was speaking these words all the people were greatly astonished at his conduct,


      29.  Because he was preaching to them with great power, not as the rest of the sages.  [Dare to read the "Oral Torah" books of Orthodox Judaism.  Then you will grasp what Joshua was teaching against; the teachings of men versus the Teachings of God is easily observed if we dare to put them side by side.  In the age of deception, telling the truth is a crime worthy of death - that is what they did to Joshua (Jesus), and what they have in store for you, if you dare to observe the REAL TEACHINGS of Elohim.  And it isn't just Orthodox Judaism, it is about all those who put Paul (who claimed to be a Pharisee), or any other man, on par with Elohim or Joshua. (Orthodox Judaism instructions on the Sabbath are not just to obey the teaching of God in the Decrees, but they turned it into 564 pages of their instructions in "The OHR OLAM Edition of the "MISHAN BERURAH.)]




      Chapter 8




      1.       It came to pass when Jesus came down from the mountain that a great crowd came after him. 


      2.       Then behold a leper came and worshipped him saying: Lord, are you able to heal me? [Possible mistranslation, as Jesus taught to worship and pray to Elohim alone, as did the Law and Prophets.]


      3.       Jesus stretched forth his hand and touched him saying: I wish that you be cleansed, and in that hour the leper was cleansed from his leprosy.


      4.       Then Jesus said to him: Be careful lest you tell any man, but go to the priest to offer your gifts as Moses commanded in your law. [Lev. 13:2, 49; 14:2]


      5.       It came to pass when he entered into Capernaum – hamartha that a captain of hundreds came to him and implored him,


      6.       saying, Lord, my son lies in my house with the sickness of contraction, and he is weak with the illness.


      7.       Jesus said to him: I will go and heal him.


      8.       The captain of hundreds answered and said to him: Lord I am not worthy that you should come under my roof; only make the decision that he might be healed.


      9.       I am a sinful man and I have authority under the Pharisees and I have horses and riders and I say to one of them go and he goes, come and he comes, and to my servants do this and they do it.


      10.   Jesus heard and was amazed and said to those who were following him: Truly I say to you, I have not found a great faith in Israel like this.


      11.   I say to you that many will come from the East and from the West and will rest with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven; [The kingdom is in the regeneration of all things – a hope not yet seen – but foretold – that God is the God of the living – the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  We can participate by serving Elohim by doing His will on earth as it is in heaven.  As Enoch and Revelation also testify, it is a matter for those who have earned it, are due it, by the promises and words of Elohim - earned by right, not a "gift". A reward is different than a gift.  We become citizens of the Kingdom of God by serving Him and our willingness to be subject to the One True God who is just and righteous in all His ways.]


      12.   But, the sons of the kingdom will be cast into the darkness of Gehenna; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. [Job 16:9; Ps 35:16; 37:12; 112: 10; Jer. 9:9-14; Mt 22:13; 24:51; 25:30] [God was to be King; Israel rejected Him and wanted their own earthly king, as other nations.  The comparison is that of secular or religious – being a Jew didn’t save – living by the authority of God – living as He decreed and desires is what separates the feigned religion of Paul, which has nothing to do with the true faith of Jesus, to all who would be his disciples indeed and who do the will of God – faith alone – versus  -  faithfulness to Elohim and His Instructions in Righteousness..  Regarding the meaning of "faith", per God, see the account of Isreal and the 12 spies of the land of Canaan.  This is perhaps the first major account of God about "faith", and lack of faith was their not believing in what God had told them to do.  Faith is about faithfulness - doing as God said to do.]


      13.   Then Jesus said to the captain of hundreds: Go; as you have believed, it will be done to you.  So the lad was healed at that time. [God answers prayers of those whose life and trust reside with Him, but each of us is appointed a time by God – even Jesus died.  My experiences with Lynne’s trials showed many answered prayers at dire times, but the mercy and love of God is to do what is best for us – body, soul and spirit – not to sustain us to the point of destruction of our heart and soul or beyond the ability of the body to cope or function – God preserves the life of His saints till His time – whether we recognize it at that time or not.  The LORD giveth, and the LORD taketh away.]


      14.   At that time, Jesus went into the house of Peter and behold his mother-in-law was lying sick with a fever. [If Peter was married, and Catholics hold onto the pretention of Peter as the first Pope – why are they forbidden to marry? Note later the instruction of Jesus regarding NOT having men rule over others – that such a practice of a Pope (or the Church/State) ruling over Christians has no support in what Jesus taught.]


      15.   He touched her hand, and the fever left her.  Then she arose and ministered to him.


      16.   At the time of evening they brought to him those seized by demons and (he) healed them by his word alone and he healed every sickness.  [The works of Jesus show that God was with him, the teachings of Jesus show that he was teaching according to the Doctrine (Teachings) of God.  Many people followed him because of the miracles, but his teachings all had to do with the coming kingdom of God and the life lived that gives hope in the blessings, promises and faithfulness of Elohim.]


      17.   To complete what was said by Isaiah the prophet, of blessed memory: Surely our sicknesses he bore and our pains he suffered.  (Is. 53:4)  [Carefully note the distinction here is about his ministry of healing – not his death of the cross – being unjustly “cut-off” from among the living and being without descendent.]


      18.   It came to pass after this Jesus saw many crowds around him and he commanded to go across the sea.


      19.   Then a sage came to him and said to him: Master I will follow you wherever you go.


      20.   Jesus answered him: The foxes have holes and the birds have nests, but the Son of Man, the son of the virgin, has no place to enter his head. ['son of the virgin' may be a minor addition, as it is here, but not in some of the early accounts of Matthew.  One place to look to for a prophecy of one who is virgin born is in Virgo, and the decan of the woman sitting with a young child on her lap.  I have yet to find support that Judaism had a distinct account of the Zodiac, and some books show what they believed was learned from others nations - yet to be completely understood because of this and pagan interpretations of the message of the Signs in the Heavens as given from pre-flood humanityand Arabia or Egypt (worship of the sun and moon and invoking demons - forbidden by God in the Covenant.]


      21.   One of his disciples said to him: Allow me to go and bury my father.


      22.   Jesus said to him: Follow me and let the dead bury their dead.


      23.   It came to pass when Jesus entered a boat, his disciples followed him.


      24.   A great storm came on the sea, and the waves were coming on excessively, and the boat was thought to be breaking up.


      25.   His disciples came to him and begged him saying: O our master save us lest we perish.


      26.   He said to them: Why do you look at one another, O you little of faith?  He arose and commanded the sea and the winds that they should be quiet and immediately they became quiet. (Recall 4Q521)


      27.   When the men who were there saw, they marveled and said: Who is this that the winds and the sea do his will? [Jesus was unique to speak the word of God – so directly that even the winds and waves obeyed – see Psalm 89:9; 107: 28-29; 4Q521]


      28.   It came to pass when he crossed over the sea and passed by the region beyond the sea into the realm of the Gaderi, that is Ginitraros, there met him two demon possessed men coming out of the tombs, raging until no man could pass by that way.


      29.   They cried out to him saying: What is between you and us, Jesus son of God?  Have you come before the time to grieve us and to destroy us?  Jesus said to them: Come out of them, evil host. [Son of God – “that prophet”, the unique anointed one to come – first with authority and power to tell the word of God – the suffering or bruised servant – later to return in judgment upon the earth – the demons recognized Jesus for who he was – and testified to his authority on earth and in the coming judgment of the cursed and the wicked.  Also be aware that Israel was said to be the son of God – and Jesus being the unique one to hear whatever he said to us.]


      30.   There near them were herds of many swine feeding.


      31.   So the demons entreated him: Since we have to go out from here, grant us authority to go into these swine.


      32.   He said to them: Go.  The demons went out from the men and entered the swine, and all the herd went in sudden haste, slipped off into the sea and died in the water.


      33.   Those who were feeding them feared, fled, and told everything in the city.  So the whole city was frightened.


      34.   They went out to meet Jesus.  They saw them and entreated him not to pass over into their border.




      Chapter 9


      1.      Then Jesus entered a boat; they set sail and returned to his city.


      2.      They brought to him one who was sick with contractions, that is, paralitico, lying upon his bed.  Jesus saw their faith and said to the sick man: Have courage my son.  It is by the faith of God that your sins have been forgiven. [forgiveness as taught by the Torah to those who believe God and turn to do His will indeed – living justly – from Cain onward and to believe whatever “that prophet” foretold of by Moses would say.  Word of Jesus being a prophet, or "that prophet" was speading.  The fact that the man was brought to him for healing shows they were believing the basic message of repentance to do as God decreed, so his coming told of his faith in God and Jesus as His prophet.  The context is when God declared in the Torah: "And so shall he be forgiven" was not defied.  There is no account of the sin forgiven, but due to the depth of Jesus' understanding of the Covenant, his saying the man's sins were forgiven is certainly not blasphemy, and shows the depth of the principle of our relationship between men is a reflection of our relationship to God - whether we serve God, or not.  Makes sense to me anyway, and if someone has a reasonable challenge to this, I'd be interested to hear it out.  Jesus declared it was by his "faith in God" that his sins were forgiven - not by his sole decree.  Recall one of the first teachings of God about faith was Israel's lack of believing and doing as Elohim had told them to do, regarding taking the Land as He had directed them, they stumbled in fear, rather than trusting in what He instructed them.]


      3.      Some of the sages were saying in their heart: This one blasphemes.


      4.      Jesus saw their thoughts and said to them: Why do you think evil in your heart?


      5.      Which is easier to say: your sins are forgiven, or, rise walk?


      6.      But to inform you that the Son of Man is able to forgive sins on earth, then he said to the sick man: Arise and take your bed and walk.


      7.      He arose and went to his house. [This brings to question other gospel accounts that Jesus did no miracles in his own town, as this seems to be a direct account that he did.  Upon careful examination it can be observed that there is disharmony in the gospel accounts – rather than harmony of the gospels as taught in Bible colleges and current study editions of Christian Bibles.]


      8.      The crowds saw, feared exceedingly, and praised God who had given power to men to do such things.  [Can we read, observe, and comprehend the pathway of God regarding repentance and forgiveness - as told in Isaiah 1 and Ezekiel 18?  My studied view on this is Jesus knew and taught the pathway of God, but that the people were so ignoant of His ways due to the fake teachings of the proto-Pharisee Orthodox Judaism, who only understand what their Rabbi tell them to believe. (oral torah)  See Leviticus, where God said: "And so he shall be forgiven."  Are men incapable to say or understand when God has said forgiveness of sin takes place?  Are not Isaiah and Ezekiel in accord with these teachings from Elohim on sin and forgiveness?  Can if be proven untrue to the Teachings of Elohim?  Looks to me that Joshua was teaching what God had already told, but it was not according to the Pharisee oral torah.]


      9.      It came to pass when Jesus passed on from there, he saw a man sitting at a table of exchange; Matthew was his name, that is, Matyeo, and he said to him: Follow me.  So he arose and followed him. [Does not say he was a tax collector?]


      10.  He brought him to his house to eat.  It came to pass while he was eating, that behold many violent and evil men were at the table and behold they were dining with Jesus and his disciples.


      11.  The Pharisees saw this and said to his disciples: Why does your teacher sit and eat with violent and evil men?


      12.  Jesus heard this and said: The healthy have no need for healing, but the sick.


      13.  Go and learn that which is written: I desire kindness and not sacrifice; I have not come to restore the righteous, but the wicked. [Hos. 6:6; Mic. 6:6-8] [[Jesus did not teach all men are wicked – he taught to return and do as God had already instructed His people to walk within.]]


      14.  Then the disciples of John came to him and said to him: Why do we and the Pharisees fast often, but your disciples do not fast?


      15.  Jesus answered them and said: The friends of the bridegroom cannot weep and fast while he is with them. The days will come when the bridegroom will be taken from them; then thy will fast. [Obvious need to fast accordingly, until his return?]


      16.  No man wastes a piece of new garment on an old garment (because) the force of the piece stretches the worn out garment and it tears more.


      17.  Nor do they put new wine into old vessels lest the vessels break, and the wine spills out and the vessels perish.  But new wine is for new vessels and both of them are preserved. [[Jesus had already taught the sermon on the mount – so his teaching disciples keeping the Torah instructions of God  as necessary – he could not have been talking about the Law VS Grace.  This has to be in the context of his disciples fasting.]


      18.  It came to pass when he had spoken to them, a captain approached and bowed down to him saying: Master, my daughter just died. Please come and place your hand upon her and restore her to life.


      19.  Jesus arose and went, he and his disciples with him.


      20.  Behold a woman with a flow of blood for twelve years came behind him and touched the fringe of his garment.


      21.  She was saying in her heart: If only I touch his garment, I will immediately be healed.


      22.  He turned and said to her: Courage my daughter, through God, blessed be He, your healing is because of your faith.  In that very hour she was healed.


      23.  It came to pass when he entered the house of the captain, he saw many people weeping.


      24.  He said to them: Go outside all of you and stop weeping because the girl is asleep and not dead. But in their eyes he was as one who jests.  They were saying: Have we not seen that she is dead?


      25.  When he had put them outside, Jesus went to her, touched her hand, and the girl arose.


      26.  This report went out in all that land.


      27.  Jesus passed on from there, and behold two blind men were running after him and crying out to him: Have mercy on us, Son of David!


      28.  He came to the house, and the blind men drew near to him.  He said: Your faith will heal you.


      29.  The eyes of the two blind men were immediately opened and they saw. He commanded them saying: Be careful lest the matter be made known.


      30.  As for them, they went out and made him known in all that land.  [Faith and belief in Jesus as "that prophet" dealt with both healings and forgiveness of sin.  Did Jesus ever go around proclaiming belief in him to be "God" would save anyone?  No, because Jesus never claimed to be God.  However, everyone knew that prophets could do great works because God was with them as a testimony to the people that the prophet was one who should be heard and beleived.  This is amply shown from Abraham through Moses, as well as later prophets such as Elijah or Ezekiel.  According to the disciples who wrote Matthew, Jesus did more works (because God was with him) than any other prophet in the history of Judaism.]


      31.  Jesus went out from there, and they brought before him a dumb man who was demon possessed.


      32.  He cast out the demon so that the dumb man spoke. The crowds were amazed and said: We have not seen it like this in Israel.


      33.  The Pharisees said: Truly in the name of demons he casts out demons.  [No where is there an account that Jesus invoked demons.  We can observe in ancient Jewish history that they had brought demonology into the Temple.  We can also read about Orthodox Judaism in "Judaism Discovered," by Michael Hoffman, and "The Talmud Tested", by Alexander McCaul, D. D.  Both are available from "Independent History and Research".  Both contain amazing research.  Do be forewarned that some may believe if you are not a Jew and study the Talmud, you may be judged by some of them to be worthy to be killed for doing so.  Odd, isn't it, that the people who say they are the light to the world would judge others so harshly?  I can't help but wonder why they can possibly think God is with them in so many superstitions and seemingly contradictory viewpoints as expressed by some of their "sages of blessed memory", such as those that obviously falsely accused Jesus and had him killed - by their own admission on Wikipedia!  Just look at the facts versus the charges, it was nothing but inciting ignorant crowds to do violence.  So what else is new today from then?  MSN and FED anyone?]


      34.  He went around all the cities and towers teaching in the synagogues and preaching the good tidings and healing every illness and every sickness.


      35.  Jesus saw the crowds and had pity on them because they were weary and lying around like sheep without a shepherd.


      36.  Then he said to his disciples: The standing grain is much but the reapers are few.


      37.  Entreat now the Lord of the standing grain that he send many reapers to harvest his grain.


      Chapter 10


      1.      Then Jesus called his twelve disciples and gave them power over every unclean spirit to cast them out from man and to heal every sickness and every plague.


      2.      These are the names of the twelve apostles, called Apostolos: Simon, called Petros, and Andrea his brother,


      3.      Philipos, and Bortolameos, and James, called Jimi, and John, his brother, sons of Zebedeel, Thomas and Matthew, that is Matio, who by reputation was a lender of (money) for interest,James Aluphei and Tereos,


      4.      Simon the Canaanite, that is, Simon Cananayos, and Juda Ascareyotah, who after this betrayed him.


      5.      These twelve Jesus sent; he commanded them saying: To the lands of the Gentiles do not go, and into the cities of the Samaritans do not enter.  [Some Jewish commenters say Jesus only said to go to the Jews – yet Jesus had already been to the “land of darkness” as a light to them.  It is only on this specific mission they were given this command, and it should not be taken out of context.  Note the conclusion in "the great commission", and also note the Hebrew versus Greek differences - our Matthew was altered.]


      6.      Go to the sheep who have strayed from the house of Israel.


      7.      Preach to them that the kingdom of heaven will be fulfilled.


      8.      Heal the sick, restore life to the dead, cleanse the lepers, and cast out demons from men.  Do not take wages.  Freely you received, freely you shall give.


      9.      Do not heap up silver and gold; nor have wealth in your purse


      10.  Nor changes of clothes, nor shoes, nor a staff in your hand. The workman is worthy to receive enough for his food.


      11.  In every city and in every tower that you enter ask who is the good man among them and there remain until you go out.


      12.  When you enter into the house, give to them a sholom saying: Shalom to this house; shalom to all who dwell in it.


      13.  If that house should be worthy, your shalom will come upon it, but if it is not worthy, your shalom will return to you. [A relatively easily understood instruction, and it is not "spiritually discerned", but is something to be observed by word and deed.]


      14.  When one does not receive you or listen to you, you shall go out from that house and shake off your feet from the dust.


      15.  Truly I say unto you, it will be better for Sodom and Gomorrah in that day than for that city.  [Evidently the “good tidings” was the message from God of peace and kindness towards those to repent to observe and do His commandments and trust in Him and His promises and goodness to His people – as Psalm 23 notes at the end: “surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD forevermore” and even from Job of his hope in the coming world that he would again live in the flesh when evil is purged in the judgement of God upon the wicked of the earth – that other prophets have said the wicked will be ashes under the feet of the righteous.  The judgment upon Sodom and Gomorrah took place hundreds of years previous, but Jesus taught of the coming judgment upon all mankind – and spoke of judgment yet to come on “that day” – the Day of the LORD.]


      16.  Behold I send you like sheep in the midst of wolves.  Be as crafty as servants and humble as doves. [Note directions later are different. A distinction is given.]  [Crafty as servants of Elohim, not servants of the evil one or demons.  Elohim commanded that His people will not petition false gods or demons or stars - that He alone is to be petitioned and sought after for aid and oversight, as taught in "the Lord's prayer.]


      17.  Beware of men. They will not deliver you up in their congregations and houses of assembly,


      18.  but to governors and kings.  You will be able to bear witness on my behalf to them and to the Gentiles.  [This was spoken of what was to come later.  Note historical evidence of actions and words spoken against the earliest Christians who followed the Hebrew Gospel of Matthew and rejected all the writings of Paul and his disciples: Luke, the author of Hebrews, as well as the gospel of John.   See the chart about the historical development of the New Testament Canon.]


      19.  When they seize you, do not consider what you will say, because in the hour that you are in need an answer will come to you.


      20.  It will not be you who speak, but the Holy Spirit of my Father will speak through you.


      21.  Brother will deliver up brother to death and a father his son; the sons will rise up against their fathers and lead them unto death.


      22.  You will become a derision and a fright to all the nations because of my name .  Whoever endures, however, until the time of the end will be saved.  [Jesus name was/is not “Jesus”, but “Yeshua” or “Yehoshua” – most similar to “Joshua”, who led God’s people into the promised land and means “salvation”, or the salvation of Elohim.  The need is to restore, as a testimony to the nations – the gospel he taught and his name.  This principle also goes along with the saying in Isaiah 42, that the message be restored to the people.  In my opinion this is true and can be easily seen by who serves God according to His Covenant - and who does not.   Christians follow Paul, and Judaism follows Rabbi's, and both are reported to be Pharisees, old and new.  Judaism hates Christians to this day, see the link on why they don't believe in Jesus, based on a Wikipedia article from June of 2020. (the "Trial of the Ages" link)]


      23.  Again Jesus said to his disciples: When they pursue you in this city flee to another; truly I say to you, you will not have completed for yourselves the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes. [Evidently this was not done then, as the times were filled with trouble from Romans and the Jews who did not believe “that prophet” when he came – as noted in his weeping over Jerusalem later.  Today it is not easy to witness to Jews in Israel about Joshua (2) and this original gospel that he taught – which is in full accord with the Torah – the Law, as given by God at Sinai, with the distinctions He made throughout the Torah based upon His speaking to Moses on Mount Sinai. (Beware of Judaism's alterations)]


      24.  No disciple is greater than his teacher, nor is the servant greater than his master. (Jesus did not make Peter the first Pope, and neither did the other disciples, and Paul was a known liar (evidence 2 Timothy 4, that everyone but Luke abandoned him at his "first defense."  Those who believed Elohim knew Paul was a liar and a fraud.)


      25.  It is sufficient for the disciple to be like his teacher, and for the servant to be like his master.  If they call the master of the house Baalzebub, so much the more the sons of his house. [Please read "Trial of the Ages", which proves how greatly Judaism has departed from Elohim when they had Joshua killed.  Is following the teachings of men over the Teachings of Elohim a blessing or a cursing - according to Elohim in "the blessings and the curses"? (Deuteronomy 11) (also see Exodus 20-30.]


      26.  Do not fear them, because there is nothing which will not be seen, nor hidden which will not be made known.  [Note prophecy in Isaiah 42 to “restore” or “give it back” and how this might well relate to our Scriptures being altered and the need to restore them that we might observe his word to do it as we also observe the word of God to do it, and also restore the words of the Prophets and Psalms and pagan alterations of the Zodiac as Paul participated in.  The Dead Sea Scrolls Bible, the Hebrew Holy Scripture, the Hebrew Gospel of Matthew and the 160 CE Aramaic English New Testament account of Matthew are all useful to accomplish this – but believing ancient Hebrew records of the Scripture (DSS and "V") is certainly needed, as we also see the original Ten Commandments of Elohim as given in "The Valediction of Moses"!]


      27.  That which I say to you in darkness, say it in the light; that which you hear by the ear, tell it in the gate.

       [Jesus did not teach in secret.  Beware accounts that say he did.  God wants us to know His will.]

      28.  Do not fear those who kill bodies who have no power to kill souls; but fear the one who has power to destroy the soul and the body in Gehenna. [Resurrection of the just and the unjust – the unjust to everlasting contempt.]


      29.  Are not two sparrows sold for a small coin and not one of them will fall to the earth except by the will of your Father who is in heaven?


      30.  Are not all the hairs of your head numbered?


      31.  Do not fear, because you are better than the sparrows.


      32.  He who praises me before man I will praise before my Father who is in heaven.


      33.  [Verse missing in the HGOM.] [[NKJV; "But whoever denies me before men, him I will also deny before my Father who is in heaven."  Likely it was not in the original, as testified to later, Peter denied him before men during the trial of Jesus, and later Jesus said he had prayed for Peter.  That might present a significant issue if Jesus said one thing here, and did otherwise soon after, so it is likely an addition.]]


      34.  In that hour Jesus said to his disciple: Do not think I have come to put peace on earth, but a sword. [Division of who is faithful to God – and who is not.  Both are easily discerned by what they say and what they do; whether they observe and do the will of God in the Ten Decrees/Covenant, or not.]


      35.  I have come to separate mankind, the son from his father and the daughter from her mother.


      36.  The enemy is to be loved ones.


      37.  He who loves his father and his mother more than me, I am not suitable for him.  [Also note in the other gospels (Luke?), has Jesus saying we have to hate our parents, which violates the Covenant of Elohim.]


      38.  [Verse  missing in the HGOM.  The “cross” at this time had no meaning to the disciples.]  [[NKJV; "And he who does not take his cross and follow after me is not worthy of me."]]


      39.  He who loves his life will lose it, he who loses it for my sake will find it.  [[Speaking from personal experience, I didn't really come to see the truth or purpose of Jesus until setting everything I was taught aside, and then digging down to the bedrock of what Jesus taught in the oldest records and comparing his teachings to the Teachings of Elohim in the Covenant and Torah and taking prophecy in context to the Hebrew Scriptures and Dead Sea Scrolls Bible.  It's a labor of love for the truth of God that requires abandoning the dirt caused by contamination from careless men, and observing what God said: from what men have told us to believe, versus What did Elohim say "My people" will observe, believe, and do.]


      40.  He who receives you, receives me and he who receives me, receives the One who sent me.  [Can we really say we receive God or Joshua unless we are abiding in the Covenant as given by Elohim, or the "Original teachings of Joshua"?  This is why we must abandon faith in spurious "gospel" accounts and all the other added writings, including especially Paul/Saul and Hebrews and "John" or "Mark", which testify directly against the Hebrew gospel of Matthew.]


      41.  He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet, will receive the reward of the prophet; he who receives a righteous one in the name of a righteous one, will receive the reward of the righteous one. [Again, in full keeping to the premise that Jesus (Yeshua/Joshua) is “that prophet.”]


      42. He who gives a vessel of cold water to one of my little disciples in the name of my disciple, truly I say to you that he will not lose his reward. (note some of the accounts embellished on this)

      Chapter 11


      1.      It came to pass when Jesus finished commanding his twelve disciples that he passed on from there and commanded them to teach and reprove in their own cities. [With the Teachings in the Sermon on the Mount understandings parred to the associated quotes of the Hebrew Holy Scripture about the necessity to do the will of God faithfully (the Covenant at Sinai), it would not be difficult to know what needed to be reproved - or repented of by the people they knew.] [[The previous teachings of Jesus should be paused for a double take and check to see if there was anything he was teaching the crowds, or his disciples of record, that was not according to the Law (Ten Commandments and associated scripture references in the Law, Prophets and Psalms).  Note very carefully the charges made against Jesus (and by default Christians), there is no support to prove any of them true!  He did not claim to be Divine.  He never taught against the Law of God, but affirmed the need to obey and serve God alone.  He never taught destruction of Israel.  In fact, he was doing everything he could to cause them to pause of man made doctrines and to look back to do what Elohim said our manner of life is to be if we are to "love and serve Elohim as our God - the one true God.  Never let anyone deceive you about what Jesus taught!!!]]]


      2.      John, when he was in captivity, heard of the work of Jesus and sent two of his disciples


      3.      saying to him: Are you the one who is to come or should we expect another? [The prophecy of Moses foretelling “that prophet” in Deut. 18:15 and Genesis 49:10 of the "one to whom it (rule) belongs", incidentally quoted in Acts account of Peter’s first sermon in 3:22-23, this is most likely what John was wondering.  This is also in accord with the Dead Sea Scrolls account of the “Teacher of righteousness” those at Quamran were waiting for. (Did he teach as Isaiah 42 said, that keeping the Covenant is honorable from men from all nations (as Isaiah 56 and 57 also tell???  How can Orthodox Judaism be honest when saying only they have souls, or that non-Jews only need to keep the "Seven Noahite Laws" that were invented by their Rabbi, as Elohim said no such thing!!! or His Prophets!!! or Joshua/Jesus!!!]


      4.      Jesus answered them: Go and tell John that which you have seen and that which you have heard:


      5.      the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are revived and the poor are acquitted. [Isaiah 29:18; 35:4 - 6; 61:1. 4Q521]


      6.      Blessed is he who is not perplexed in me.  [There is no need to be perplexed about him if you take the veil of Paul off your eyes and realize all the teachings of Jesus were about living as God said to live in the Covenant!!!  Honestly, given the information in "V", I have much doubt about all their "Sages of blessed memory for over 2000 years.  Jesus makes more sense of "The Holy Way" than what all the Rabbi have written - don't waste your time on them, as Jesus was much more faithful to God and fellow humans!]


      7.      It came to pass as they were going that Jesus began to speak to the crowds about John: You went out into the wilderness to see what? A reed cast about by the wind?


      8.      Or what did you go out to see?  Do you think that John was a man clothed in noble garments?  Behold those who wear noble garments are in king’s houses.


      9.      If so, what did you go out to see, a prophet?  Truly I say to you that this one is greater than a prophet.


      10.  This is he about whom it is written: Behold I am sending my messenger and he will make the way clear before me. [Mal. 3:1]


      11.  Again Jesus said to his disciples: Truly I say to you, among all those born of women none has arisen greater than John the baptizer. [This is past tense, and the greatness of Jesus was established with his resurrection and ascension to the right hand of the Ancient of Days as prophesied in Daniel and foretold by Jesus later in Matthew, and as told by his disciples to be declared the risen Christ who is to come in judgment in the future to rule from the throne of David.  What will be the future for Jews who rejected him as “that prophet”?  What did Moses say?]  [[See “Let’s Get Biblical” by Rabbi Tovia Singer to understand modern Jewish rejection of Jesus is reportedly based on Christians altering their Scripture, the false teachings of Paul that are believed by Christians, and that Jesus did not rule on the throne of David or rid the world of war and evil, or fulfill any prophecy.  Also be aware that they obviously believe the false charges against him by the Rabbi's then, which have only multiplied in lies to this day.  The ‘suffering servant’ teaching the Gentiles that Torah keeping is honorable for men of all nations precedes the role of conquering king ruling from Jerusalem.  Most importantly, should they look carefully at the passage they site: God is the one who would take care of the enemies – not the Messiah.  God also said He was the one who would gather scattered Israel.]]


      12.  From his days until now the kingdom of heaven has been oppressed and senseless persons have been rending it. [Historical record of Israel’s failure to follow the Instruction and word of God as given is shown by their repeated rejection of those God sent to them in calling them to repent.  Modern evidence would be following writings in the Talmud instead of recognizing the Teachings of Jesus in Matthew being of God and according to the Covenant Teachings of God.]  [[Evidence of changes in the Scripture can be based from footnotes in the Dead Sea Scrolls Bible and the Valediction of Moses – all need to return to believe the unaltered words of God, the Prophets and the Psalms.]]


      13.  For all the prophets and the law spoke concerning John.


      14.  If you wish to receive it, he is Elijah who is going to come.


      15.  He who has ears to hear, let him hear.


      16.  Again Jesus said: I will liken this generation to lads who sit in the market place calling to one another,


      17.  saying: We sang to you, and you did not dance; we wailed to you, and you did not weep.


      18.  Because John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say concerning him: He is possessed of demons.


      19.  But the son of Man came eating and drinking, and one says concerning him: He is a glutton, a drunkard, and a friend to violent men and sinners. So fools judge the wise. [This is very true.  See the site link of "What Does God Require", which details the false charges Orthodox Judaism makes against Jesus to this day, which stem from the Rabbi Hillel, a near contemporary to Jesus.  The charges against Jesus prove the hatred of the Jewish leaders in Jesus' days was absolutely unjustified and made by liars, which liars Orthodox Jews consider "of blessed memory"!!!  Realize that Orthodox Jews have no more regard for you than they did Jesus - if you believe Jesus was who he claimed to be.  Proof they believe lies is seen in the Talmud.  Get a copy and see the nonsense therein.  Anyone can come to know God and His will through the Testimony of Jesus in the Hebrew Gospel of Matthew.  The truths in the HGOM make more sense of the Words of God than the last 2000 years of Jewish scholarship musing over the records of their Rabbi.  I'll have to cast my lot with belief  and understanding that God told obvious and reliable truth - not mysteries or bifurcation of His Instructions to mankind.  He is the one who said nothing He said to do is too hard to understand or too hard to do.  His truth is obvious to me, and I'd adventure it is obvious to any reasonable and open minded man, woman or child old enough to consider the Teachings and Covenant of God - "The Holy Way" of Isaiah 35.. ]


      20.  Then Jesus began to curse the cities in which his signs were done, for they did not turn in repentance.


      21.  Woe to you (Corozim) and woe to you Beth Saida, for if in Tyre and Sodom, that is, Tirao deter or Sidomah, the signs had been done which were done in you, they would have turned in repentance at that time in sack cloth and ashes. [Similar statement about judgment of Sodom and Gommorah.]


      22.  Truly I say to you, it shall be easier for Tyre and Sodom than for you.


      23.  You Capernaum, will you ascend to heaven?  From there you will be brought down.  Because if in Sodom the signs which were done in you had been done, perhaps she would have remained.  Unto Sheol you will be brought down.


      24.  Truly I say to you that it shall be easier for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment than for you.


      25.  At that time Jesus raised himself up and said: Be praised my Father, creator of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these words from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to the humble. [[[Note well that in no way did Jesus claim to be “co-creator” as taught by the false apostle and liar Saul/Paul, or the spurious "gospel of John".]]]


      26.  Truly this is because it was upright before you, my Father.


      27.  All that has been given to me from my Father.  There I none who knows the son, but the Father alone, and the Father no one knows, but the son and to whomever the son wishes to reveal him.  (I really don't think we've understood because we've not recognized the Christian Bible  is not the inerrent word of God.  Once you realize all Jesus' teachings are in full accord and context to the Sinai Covenant 10 Decrees - it's like finding a whole new land to explore and wonder at it's beauty and provisions in all things.)


      28.  Come unto me all you who are weary and who are enduring labor, and I will help you bear your yoke.


      29.  Take my yoke as your yoke and learn of me that I am humble and good and pure of heart and you shall find rest for your souls,


      30.  because my yoke is soft and my burden is light. [Spread the message, teach and reprove; “yoke” is to work – not rest to believe he did all the work – it is to work beside him – to do as he instructed and exampled – to live as he did – to do the works of God prepared for His people from the beginning.  See the first Commandment, see the "blessings", see the "curses", and consider them a unit of indivisible Teachings – those Elohim has kindness towards are those that love Him – those that love Him observe His word to do it.  As Jeremiah  6:16 has Elohim speaking; "Stand ye in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the god way, and walk therin, and ye shall find rest for your souls."]


      Chapter 12


      1.      At that time Jesus passed through the standing grain on the Sabbath day, and his disciples being hungry began to pluck the ears and to crush them between their hands and to eat them.


      2.      The Pharisees saw it and said to him: Behold your disciples are doing that is is not proper to do on the Sabbath day.  [The Pharisees, even in the days of Jesus, we busy to "regulate" their viewpoints and opinions upon others.  The focus point should be to observe the given words of Elohim, and to live according to them, not those who add to or take away from them or who would mix them up - all of which was done by the Pharisees.  For example, Elohim gave a simple and observable Standard about the Sabbath, which would include His judgment as pre Sinai, that those who work on the Sabbath to be carefully observed as very important. Elohim ceased work on the Sabbath and He sanctified it.  He calls us to cease work and rest.  To be blessed is to not work and to sanctify the day.  To be cursed is to do work on the Sabbath.  What is your work?  What if you are the preacher or priest?  Honoring Elohim is our duty - not our work, such as banking or physical labor.  What about doctors and such?  To preserve life is not accounted as "work" because to do good is not prohibited.  To count having keys in your pocket as "work" is obviously missing the boat.    At this time I'm not so sure as about the explicit reply, but this is something worthy of further study.  Some say Jesus didn't support keeping the Sabbath (many Evangelicals who cast aside the Law because Paul said to), but there are several accounts in Matthew that prove Jesus did support keeping the Sabbath, and indeed all the Standards given by Elohim.  The observable nonsense of the Pharisees can be observed today by reading what they say is proper Sabbath keeping: "THE OHR OLAM EDITION MISHNAH BERURAH, vol. 3 (b).  564 pages of material of the Pharisees, versus one simple and observable Teaching of God that because He rested on the Seventh Day, that we also rest on it from our work, we, and "all that you have.".  The over riding theme of the Standards is to preserve life and live justly between ourselves and God and ourselves and our fellow man.  Hense, when Jesus said it was needful to do good on the Sabbath, when healing the lame man on the Sabbath.  Rather than just keep some details of His word, realize that because God is good, we also need to be good and realize more about what it means to follow the lead of God in all things.  (as we learned from our parents, and Elohim as  the Father of mankind, we need to also immitate His pathway and outlook as we are able.  "Son of man" means to be a mortal, not a demigod or part of the "Trinity."  Jesus taught that we too can rely on the justice and goodness of God in all things - including being freed to do good on the Sabbath, and to preserve life.  We would also be well advised to see what God said in Leviticus 19, in "you shall be holy, for I am holy" to be basic, not some imagined standard that we are unable to keep to the Standard given by God.]


      3.      Jesus answered them: Have you not read what David did when he was hungy and his men


      4.      in the house of God when they ate from the bread of the Presence,  which is not to be eaten except by the priests alone?


      5.      Also in the Torah have you not read that the priests in the Temple sometimes profane the Sabbaths and are without sin?


      6.      Truly I say to you that the temple is greater than this.


      7.      If you had known what this is: I desire kindness and not sacrifice, you would not have convicted the innocent.  (Hosea 6:6)


      8.      For the son of man is lord of the Sabbath.  (This exchange is reported by Christians in the Greek based Matthew to say that he was "Lord of the Sabbath."  The term "son of man" is used throughout the Hebrew Scripture to denote mortals, not divinity, but the son of Adam, or descendant of Adam.  Also note the exchange of Jesus in verse 16 that he was not claiming to be greater than the Temple.  Both ideas are alterations of the Hebrew text - either mistranslated, or deliberately altered - regardless, such and idea was not taught according to the eyewitness disciples of Jesus.)


      9.      It came to pass at the end of the days that Jesus passed on from there and entered into their Synagogues.


      10.  A man was there with a withered hand; so they asked him saying: Is it permissible to heal him on the Sabbath?


      11.  He said to them: Who among you has a sheep that falls into a pit on the Sabbath day and does not raise it up?’


      12.  So much the more is man better than that.  Therefore it is permissible and necessary for man to do good on the Sabbath.


      13.  Then he said to the man: Stretch out your hand.  He stretched out his hand, and it returned as the other.


      14.  Then the Pharisees took counsel and plotted to put him to death.  [Here we see the  disciples reported root cause of why Jesus was hated: the Pharisees rightly saw that Jesus was making perfect sense of how God viewed keeping His commandments, having mercy, and doing good to be in defiance of keeping their man-made rules of the Pharisees – they feared him who understood God and called men to obey God – rather than men. To this day the Pharisees hold sway over many Jews and continue to reject Jesus’ teachings in the Hebrew Gospel of Matthew.  See what they’ve written of Jesus in their Talmud?  Let them judge themselves by “every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.”  Jesus forewarned Israel about the Pharisees and the destruction of the Temple at Jerusalem and what they must do.  What other prophet of God was rejected so long by His people?  Later we will see that Jesus judged Israel and said the Kingdom would be torn from them and given to a nation that would produce the works that God said to do.  Perhaps America might still repent with a whole heart towards God and reject the lies foisted upon them by alterations of Rome and the ancient Syriac Church to have also added books to the New Testament that have confused millions of people for centuries!  Also note that Judaism altered the Ten Teachings of Elohim, as documented in "The Valediction of Moses", and partially quoted on my site Introduction page (first link).]


      15.  It came to pass after this that Jesus knew it, so he turned aside from there.  Many sick followed him and he healed all of them.


      16.  He commanded them, saying not to reveal him,


      17.  in order to establish what was spoken by Isaiah:


      18.  Behold my servant whom I have selected, my chosen one with whom my soul is pleased; I will put my spirit upon him, and he will declare justice to the nations.


      19.  He will not fear nor will he run nor shall one hear (his voice) in the street.


      20.  A crushed reed he will not break and a dim wick he will not quench until he establishes justice forever,


      21.  And in his name the Gentiles hope. [[[Dead Sea Scrolls Bible – Isaiah 42 – “Here is my servant, whom I support, my chosen, in whom my soul delights.  I have placed my spirit on him so that he may deliver his justice to the nations.  He will not cry out or raise his voice or make it heard in the street.  A crushed freed he will not break, and a faintly burning wick he will not quench.  He will truly bring forth justice.  And he will not grow faint or be crushed until he has established justice on earth; and the coastlands will inherit his law.   Thus says the God, and God who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and its produce, who gives breath to the people upon it, and spirit to those who walk on it: I have called you in righteousness and have taken hold of your hand.  I have preserved you and established you as a covenant to the people, as a light to the nations, to open blind eyes, to lead those bound out of the dungeon and those sitting in darkness out of the prison.     I the LORD am the one, and I will not give my name or my glory to another nor my praise to idols.  See, the former things have come about, and I am announcing the new things.  Before they unfold I am making you aware of them.     Sing to the LORD a new song and his praise from the end of the earth, you who travel the sea and everything in it, coastlands and their inhabitants.  Let the desert cry out, its cities and the villages that Kedar inhabits, and let the inhabitants of Sela sing for joy.  Let them shout aloud from the tops of the mountains.  Let them give glory to the LORD and declare his praise in the coastlands.     The LORD goes forth like a warrior.  He fires up his furor like a man of war, Showing his anger, he shouts aloud.  He prevails against his enemies.  Certainly I have kept silent for a long time.  Now I will cry out like a woman giving birth, I will gasp and pant together.  I will devastate mountains and hills and dry up all their vegetation.  I will make the rivers islands and dry up the ponds.  I will help the blind walk by a way that they do not know.  In paths they do not know I will lead them.  I will make the dark places before them light and rough places level.  I will do these things and I will not abandon them.  Those who trust in idols will be turned back and utterly shamed, who say to images, “You are our gods.”     Listen, you who are deaf; look, you who are blind, and see.  Who is as blind but my servant or deaf like my messenger whom I send?  Who is blind like the one allied with me and blind like the LORD’s servant?  You have seen many things, but you do not observe.  his ears are open, but he does not hear. {{“My servant” – Israel – in rejecting Jesus?]]  The LORD had desired, for the sake of his vindication, that he should increase his torah and glorify it.  Instead, this is a people despoiled and plundered.  All of them are trapped in holes and hidden in prisons.  They have become prey whom no one rescues, as spoil and no one says, “Restore!”     Who is among you that will hear this?   Indeed let him pay attention and listen for the time to come.  Who gave Jacob over to be despoiled and Israel to plunderers?  Was it not the LORD, against whom we have sinned, and in whose ways they were not willing to walk and whose instruction they would not obey?  So he poured upon him the heat of his anger and the fierceness of war.  It set him on fire all around, but he did not recognize it.  It burned him, but he did not think about it.”]]]   * The point that seems most important at this time, since the “Scriptures” have been altered, is to realize Jesus was teaching the proper interpretation and application of the words of God to be the manner of life we are to live that is in accord with every word of God, never setting His word, truth, justice or mercy aside from being our guide.  We must set aside what we have been told is “Scripture” that isn’t in accord with the teachings of Jesus in Matthew that are supported by the words of God in the Hebrew Scripture of his day.  Those which defy the Instruction of God must be rejected to “Restore!” the effectiveness of the true words of God.]


      22.  Then there was brought to him a blind and dumb man who was demon possessed; he healed him.  The crowds saw it


      23.  and marveled and said: Is this not the Son of David?


      24.  The Pharisees were quick to hear this and said: This one does not cast out demons except by Ballzebub, the lord of demons. [How many times did they make this false charge?  All too many people today are influenced by false charges.  God said to judge rightly and gave directions to do so, but the Jews were famous for ignoring those instructions – especially those devoted to ritual and not a living relationship with God Almighty.]


      25.  Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them in a parable: Every kingdom among you divided shall be made desolate, and so every city our house upon which division shall fall shall not stand.  {Note how this also relates to the Isaiah quote.]


      26.  If Satan casts out another satan, there will be division among them, how will his kingdom stand?


      27.  If I cast out demons by the Spirit of God truly the end of his kingdom has come.


      28.  How shall a man be able to enter the house of the strong man to take his goods unless he bind him first?  Then he shall plunder his house. [We have been “bound” by false “Scriptures”.  When we are bound by the Word of God that Jesus trusted in (record of the Dead Sea Scrolls, including the "Valediction of Moses"), we find true freedom to live rightly and justly and become faithful citizens of the Kingdom of God who hope fully in the resurrection of the just and the unjust, as did faithful Enoch, Job, Abraham and David.  Those of God find it easy to abide in His instruction, just as God said – that His word is not hard to understand or do.  God never commanded that any man match His glory – as Paul falsely stated in “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God” – where did God command that in the Torah or the Teachings of Jesus?  The first context of understading the Prophets is to distinguish who they were speaking to.  Learn to distinguish who is evil and who is just - there is a vast difference between them if we pay attention to Elohim and Yehoshua (Joshua).  As for the false doctrines of the “fall of man”, where in Genesis does God even say eating the fruit of the tree was a sin?  Where did Satan find agreement with God?  Judaism doesn't believe angels sin, or that there is a "Satan"... not that I've been able to find.  Also dispel ideas that we define sin - free yourself from Paul and learn to believe Elohim.]


      29.  How shall a man be able to enter the house of the strong man to take his goods unless he bind him first?  Then he shall plunder his house. [Historically, Rome bound the faithful Christians to death and destroyed their writings and they also altered and revised the Hebrew Gospel of Matthew, inserted other gospels, altered those gospels, and finally inserted the false apostles’ writings into their new canon – the “New Testament.”  This is likely why so many Greek NT manuscripts appear later than 100CE – they tried to destroy all before 150 CE to cover their tracks of six revisions of the New Testament and two revisions of the Old Testament by their partner, the Syriac Church.]


      30.  Whoever is not with me is against me.  Whoever does not join himself to me denies me. [ This can be traced back to when Joshua was leading Isreal and the multitude of nations into Canaan, and his statement to an angel of "Are you for us, or for those who are against us." (paraphrased)]


      31.  Therefore I say to you that every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven the sons of men, but blasphemy of the Spirit shall not be forgiven. [This particular sin does not seem to fit the Covenant Standards of Elohim, and is also documented in Mark - which defies the conclusion commission of Jesus in Matthew.  Was it inserted later, or is it one of the Teachings that Elohim gave through Jesus?  What support does it have?  In Enoch, the fallen Watchers and their children were told by Elohim, through their emmissary Enoch, that there would be no forgiveness for them or their children.  I cannot think of another judgment so harsh that no amount of repentance would suffice, and that forgiveness was not possible, according to God.  We can look to Jeremiah 37 to see the main work Elohim said the Spirit would accomplish - to write His Law on our hearts to help us keep His Teachings from the heart - not just because they were written on stone tablets.  So for some Christians to deny this is the stated work of the Holy Spirit, and then say those who do honor the Covenant Standards of Elohim to have fallen from grace and be condemned - how is that belief not considered "blasphemy against the Holy Spirit" if that is what God said the Spirit would do????]


      32.  Everyone who says a word against the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven him.  But everyone who says a word against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him either in this world or in the world to come. [Note passage with the Ten Declarations that God said He would not absolve anyone who takes/carries His NAME in vain. Deut. 5:11 – also in DSSB.  Possible alteration to align with “Spiritual” doctrines of Paul VS observable doctrines given by God at Sinai and Jesus?  Carefully review the Valediction account of the Covenant and "the blessings and the curses.  I think these two verses were added to Matthew by the time Shem Tob made his copy. We should review the findings about "The Valediction of Moses" regarding who God said is cursed via the "blessings and the curses" account, as well as what the Prophets recorded.  This is well documented in "V".  Since the Teachings, promises and judgments of God were recorded for us in letters, and He said to "choose life that Ye may live", it is nonsense to believe where Paul said the letter of the Law brings death, but the Spirit gives life - as though the Teachings of God defy His Spirit.  Rather, realize the Spirit and words of God worked together in Creation of that which is good.  This is the "V" account, but regrouped to show the alignment and harmony of the blessings and the curses to the Decrees:  "I am Elohim, your god, who freed you from the land of Egypt, from the slave-house.  You shall not have any other gods.  You shall not make a carving or any image that is in the heavens above or the earth below or in the waters beneath the earth.  You shall not prostrate yourselves before them, and you shall not serve them.  I am Elohim, your god. Blessed is the man who has Elohim as his god, and who prostrates himself only to him, and who serves him alone.  Cursed is the man who does a carving or a casting, the handiwork of a craftsman. 

      Sanctify the seventh day and rest on it.  For in six days I made the heavens and the earth and all that is in them, and I rested on the seventh day.  Therefore you too shall rest, along with your livestock and all that you have.  I am Elohim, your god.  Blessed is the man who sanctifies the seventh day and rests on it.  Cursed is the man who does work on the seventh day.

      Honor your father and your mother.   I am Elohim, your god.  Blessed is he who honors his father and his mother.  Cursed is he who disgraces his father and mother.  

      You shall not slay the soul of your brother.  I am Elohim, your god.  Blessed is the man who does not avenge or exact retribution for the soul of his brother. Cursed is he who strikes down his fellow in secret. 

      You shall not commit adultery with the woman of your fellow.  I am Elohim, your god.  Blessed is the man who does not defile the woman of his fellow. Cursed is the man who approaches any of his kin, or who commits adultery with the woman of his fellow, or who copulates with any animal.  

      You shall not steal the property of your brother.  I am Elohim, your god.  Blessed is the man who does not cheat his fellow.  Cursed is he who moves the boundary marker of his fellow.  

      You shall not swear in my name falsely, for I shall avenge the transgression of the fathers against the sons, grandsons, and great grandsons for those who bear my name falsely.  I am Elohim, your god.  Blessed is the man who does not swear in my name falsely.  Cursed is the man who swears falsely in my name.  (to deceive/falsely)

      You shall not submit against your fellow a false judgment. I am Elohim, your god.  Blessed is the man who does not deceive or lie to his fellow.  Cursed is he who takes a bribe to give false judgment against his comrade.   

      You shall not desire the woman of your fellow, his male servant, his female servant, or anything that is his.  I am Elohim, your god.  Blessed is he who does not lust after anyone belonging to his fellow.  Cursed is the man who desires and lusts after the woman of his fellow, his daughter, his female slave, or anything that is his. (woman/wife)

      You shall not hate your brother in your heart. I am Elohim, your god.  Blessed is the man who loves his fellow.  Cursed is the man who hates his brother in his heart.   

      It is these ten pronouncements that Elohim uttered to you upon the mountain from amid the fire.  Blessed is the man who upholds all the proclamations of this teaching to perform them. Cursed is the man who does not uphold all the proclamations of this teaching to perform them."   So where did Elohim declare any sin as "unforgiveable"???


      33.  Make the tree good according to good fruit, or the tree bad according to bad fruit; because the truth is: from the fruit the tree will be known. [Observable – not “spiritually” discerned – known by observing the Instruction of God in the Torah.]


      34.  Family of vipers, how can you speak good things when you are evil?  Surely the mouth awakens, the heart speaks.


      35.  A good man from the treasure of a good heart brings forth good; and evil man from the treasure of an evil heart brings forth evil.


      36.  I say to you that for all the words which a man shall speak he will be obliged to give an account on the day of judgment.


      37.  According to your words you will be judged and according to your deeds you will be convicted.  [I'm confident this was spoken for all men, not just the Pharisees.  Jesus said judgment is on words and deeds - so how can the forgiveness of God be granted those who defy His gracious instructions in righteousness, as contained in the Everlasting Covenant?  Surely it is Evangelicals who lie - not Jesus or God Almighty!]


      38.  At that time, some of the Pharisees and sages came to Jesus saying: We wish to see a sign from heaven by you.  [One could think that with the number of “signs” Jesus did by this time that there could be found ample personal examples to testify about what did or didn’t happen – and enough were done publicly that at the testimony of two or more witnesses a matter could be known to be true or not…by the standards God gave for testimony in the Torah.  Why then were the Pharisees and sages seeking some special miracle be given beyond what was done that they had full ability to judge?  They had already exposed their intents.]


      39.  He said to them: An evil and wicked generation seeks a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah. [This refers also to another prophet (Micah?) who stated after two days and two nights – not three days and three nights?]


      40.  For as he was in the bowels of the fish three days and three nights, so will the Son of Man be in the belly of the earth, buried) for three days and three nights.


      41.  The men of Nineveh will rise up in judgment with this generation and shall condemn it, because they turned in repentance of the words of Jonah and I am greater than Jonah. [There are numerous examples in the Hebrew Scripture of forgiveness from God without blood sacrifice – but upon severe repentance.  The book of Jonah proves this is so.  The same truth was also told in Daniel.]


      42.  The queen of Shebah, will rise up in judgment with this generation and shall condemn it, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold I am greater than Solomon.  [I've never heard a Christian sermon that shows and tells Jesus was greater than Solomon.  Have you?]


      43.  When the unclean spirit goes out from the man, he goes through waterless places seeking rest, but does not find it.


      44.  Then he says: I will return to my house from which I came out, and he goes and finds it empty, safe, and ready.


      45.  Then he takes seven spirits more evil than himself, and they go with him and dwell there, and the later state of the man is worse than his first.  Thus it will be to this evil generation. [ It should be obvious for us today that this generation is worse than the generation of Jesus' days - perhaps as evil as in the days of Noah.  We need to be aware of the "signs" of our own generation.|[Before ending the topic of demons and such, recall Israel dabbling in demons before destruction of the first Temple.  Micharel Hoffman, of "Independent History and Research" has written many books exposing Orthodox Judaism, and it's history of evils and evil beliefs against God and His people.  His latest book is "Twilight Language", about secret societies and Psychological Warfare.  Michael Hoffman is the best researcher I've ever found about "Orthodox Judaism", but he has not yet discovered Paul was a liar.  Read his books with the Teachings of God and Jesus in mind, and don't be sucked back into Paul!  You will be amazed at what he has found from their own writings and the writings of others of historical significance!]


      46.  While he was speaking to all the crowds, behold his mother and his brothers were standing outside seeking him to speak with him.


      47.  A man said to him: Behold your mother and your brothers are seeking to see you.


      48.  He answered the one who spoke to him: Who are my brothers and who is my mother?


      49.  He stretched out his hands to his disciples and said: These are my mother and brothers.


      50.  Everyone who does the will of my Father who is in heaven is my brothers, my sisters, and my mother.


      Chapter 13




      1.      On that day Jesus went out of the house and sat on the shore of the sea.


      2.      Crowds joined themselves to him until he needed to enter a boat, the whole crowd was standing on the shore.


      3.      He spoke to them many things in parables and said to them: A man went forth from his house in the morning to sow his seed.


      4.      In his sowing some of it fell on the road, and the birds at it.


      5.      Some of it fell among rocks where there was no density of soil, and when it sprang up it withered because there was not much soil there.


      6.      When the sun above it became warm, it was burned and dried up because it had no root.


      7.      Some of it fell among the thorns, and the thorns grew and darkened it.


      8.      Some of it fell on good ground and made fruit and produce, the first a hundred, the second sixty and the third thirty.


      9.      Whoever has ears to hear let him hear.  [Note the Psalm that says "My ears you have opened", not "A body Thou hast prepared for me.]


      10.  Then his disciples drew near to him and his disciples said to him” Why do you speak in parables?


      11.  He said: To you it has been given to know the kingdom of heaven, but not to them.


      12.  Whoever has, it will be given to him again, but whoever has nothing, that which he thinks he has will be taken from him.  [For 2000 years they have been accusing Jesus for doing what God said He would do to them if they became evil.  Will they ever open their eyes to see who they killed?  Will they ever repent of the great evil in denial that all men have souls, and that all the souls of all men belong to God, to do with as He pleases - and as He said He would do - for blessing or curses?  God has been true, but they perish for lack of knowledge and personal responsibility for what they believe and do.]


      13.  For this reason I speak in parables because they see but do not see, hear but do not hear,


      14.  in order to fulfill what was said through Isaiah the Prophet: God and say to this people, hear but do not comprehend, see but do not (understand). [Isaiah 6: 9-10; Job 15:8; Proverbs 3:32; Amos 3:7; Isaiah 45:7.]


      15.  Make the heart of this people fat and make their ears heavy and blind their eyes, lest they should see with their eyes. [Isaiah 6: 9-10.]


      16.  Blessed are your eyes that see and your ears that hear.


      17.  Truly I say to you that many prophets and righteous men desired to see what you see but did not see it, and hear what you hear but did not hear it.  [To be in the presence of “that prophet” to hear and do “whatsoever he sayeth to you.” Deut. 18:15 and Isaiah 42, 53.]


      18.  But hear you the parable of the sower.


      19.  The Sower is the Son of Man and the seed which fell on the road is everyone who hears the kingdom of heaven and does not understand it.  Satan comes and snatches away from his heart everything which was sown in it.  This is the seed which fell on the road. [Don't harden your heart against the Instructions of your Father in heaven.  Paul was a rank liar and deceiver, by his own admission!]  [The main reason I'm including so much notation with the Hebrew Matthew account is so you can better understand and grasp firmly that the Testimony of Jesus is in complete accord to the Teachings and Covenant of Elohim - that you won't be deceived by the rest of the "New Testament."]


      20.  That which fell upon the rocks is the one who hears the word of God and receives it immediately with joy.


      21.  But he is without root and is in confusion and when a little trouble and distress come to them, Satan causes them to forget from their heart.


      22.  That which fell among the thorns, this is the one who hears the word and in his desire to gather wealth, Satan causes him to forget the word of God, and he makes no fruit.


      23.  That which fell into the good earth is the one who hears the word and understands it and makes fruit, that is, from good works.  [*]He brings forth from the first a hundred, from the second sixty, and from the third thirty.  As for the hundred, this is the one purified of heart and sanctified of body.  As for the sixty, this is the one separated from women.  As for the thirty, this is the one sanctified in matrimony, in body and in heart. [“Good works” relates to doing the works God has declared “good”.  Based on the commandments of God to mankind from the beginning, wouldn’t it be questionable to be one “separated from women”?  This doesn’t seem to fit completely following the first sentence that identifies “fruit” to “good works.”***  Possible alteration of original?] [There is a passage in the Prophets that proclaims in the resurrection that a better name will be given to the faithful who could have no children.]


      24.  He set before them another parable.  The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sows good seed in his field.


      25.  It came to pass when the men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed tares over the wheat, that is, beriyagah, and he went away.


      26.  It came to pass when the herb grew up to make fruit, he saw the tares.


      27.  The servants of the master of the field drew near to him and said to him: Master did you not sow good seed? Then whence came the tares?


      28.  He said to them: My enemy did this.  His servants said to him: We will uproot the tares.


      29.  He said to them: No, lest you uproot the wheat.


      30.  But let them remain together and grow up until the harvest and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers: Gather the tares first and bind them into individual bundles for burning and the wheat put into the granary.  [This clearly foretold the false accounts of the gospel of the kingdom of heaven and to not tear out the tares for the sake of the wheat, but “tearing out” was done by those who followed the gospel of the tares to have been done by those who did not know or follow Jesus [see historical accounts of the Roman Church and even Martin Luther in his actions against Servanus or any Church that would teach keeping the commandments of God is not a requirement for all disciples of Jesus.  The attacks against the Truth of God are from those who are His enemies – not those that love Him indeed and according to His truth, justice and mercy.  There is a huge distinction between “come out from among them” and killing those who don’t believe Jesus to be “that prophet.”]


      31.  He set before them another parable.  The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard which a man takes and sows in the field.


      32.  It is smaller than all garden herbs, but when it grows up it is greater than all the herbs and is made into a great tree until the birds of heaven withdraw into its branches.


      33.  He spoke to them another parable.  The kingdom of heaven is like leaven which (a woman puts) into three measures of flour and it leavens all of it.


      34.  All of these parables Jesus spoke to the crowds and without a parable did he not speak to them,


      35.  to fulfill what was said according to the prophet: I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter riddles from ancient times. [Psalm 78: 1-8 (2)  Stone Edition Psalm 78, as the DSSB is incomplete; A maskil by Asaph. Listen, my people, to my teaching, incline your ear to the words of my mouth.  I will open my mouth with a parable, I will utter and explain riddles from antiquity. That which we have heard and know and our fathers told us, we shall not withhold from their sons, recounting unto the final generation the praises of HASHEM (NAME of God), His might and His wonders that He has wrought.  He established a testimony in Jacob and set down a Torah in Israel which He commanded our fathers, to make their sons.  So that the final generation may know; children yet to be born will arise and tell their own children; so that they may place their trust in God, and not forget the works of God, and they will safeguard His commandments. [“safeguard” His commandments is not in the DSSB – likely added by Pharisees and allowed by scribes]  That they not become like their fathers, a wayward and rebellious generation; a generation that did not dedicate its heart aright, and whose spirit was not steadfast with God.]


      36.  Then Jesus was parted from the crowds and went into the house.  His disciples came to him and asked how to explain for them the parable of the tares.


      37.  He answered them and said to them: The one who sows good seed is man, [Due to variation, AENT is supplied: “He who sows the good seed is the "son of man." - alteration in HGOM.]


      38.  the field is this world, the good fruit is the righteous, and the tares are the evil. [AENT; And the field is the world, and the seed are the good sons.  And the tares of the Kingdom are the sons of the evil one.]  [[The AENT account better fits the narrative of Matthew of Jesus being “that prophet” that all men are to hear, whereas the Jewish preserved account seems to have little meaning.]]


      39.  The enemy who sowed it is Satan, the standing grain at the end is the world to come, and the reapers are the angels.


      40.  As the reapers gather the tares to burn, so will it be at the end of the days.  [“Left behind” series of books and movies are believed by Evangelicals who “Trust in Jesus’ work on the cross,” instead of realizing they are also to do the works of God.]


      41.  The Son of Man will send his angels to uproot from his kingdom all evil and all who do iniquity.


      42.  They will cast them into the pyre of fire; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.


      43.  Then the righteousness will shine like the sun and the kingdom of their father.  Whoever has ears to hear let him hear.


      44.  Again Jesus said to his disciples: The kingdom of heaven is like a man who finds a treasure which had been hidden and in gladness over the value he sells all which he has and buys the field from himself.


      45.  Again the kingdom of heaven is like a certain merchant seeking precious stones.


      46.  When he finds a good one, he sells all which he has and buys it.


      47.  The kingdom of heaven is like a net in the midst of the sea in which are gathered all kinds of fish.


      48.  When it is full, they draw it out, and the fishermen go forth and choose the good for their vessels and the bad they cast away.


      49.  Thus it will be at the end of days, the angels will go forth and separate the evil from the midst of the righteous.  [How could Paul have said that we will judge angels, when the angels are the ones who are separating the evil from the righteous?]


      50.  Then they shall cast them into the pyre of fire; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.


      51.  He said to them: Have you understood this?  They said: Yes.


      52.  Every wise man in the kingdom of heaven, therefore, is like a certain father of children who brings forth from his treasure things new and old. [There is a somewhat parallel passage in the OT and also God making a book of remembrance for those who would be careful to return to Him through faithfulness to His word.  This is why I've taken the time and effort to try to reveal to the reader that the pathways given by God to mankind has been consistant throughout human history - rather than pretending in "Dispensational Theology", whose viewpoint is reletively new - only 200 years or so - not thousands of years as the Hebrew Scriptures tell us of - from the accounts of Moses, through the testimony of Johsua's disciples in the Hebrew Matthew.  It's not as though Hebrew is magical, as it can be reasonably translated to our language, that we also might understand the great beauty and value of the Teachings of Elohim.  Due to alterations in the Hebrew rocords, we need to pay all the more attention to matters of the Ten Decrees, the Blessings and the Curses, as well as the warnings to Israel from the Prophets.  To date, the Hebrew Matthew has found complete accord to those vital records from God.  Evidently, Judaism has been derailed from God since the time of Ezekiel when they altered His Covenant.  This is the same thing God told through Jeremiah 6:16: "Thus saith the LORD: Stand ye in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therin, and ye shall find rest for your souls."  But the Jews of Jeremiah's days said "We will not walk therein."  Is this not the same response most "Christains" give when trying to tell them to keep the Covenant as God Taught, and as Joshua (Jesus) taught likewise?  Recall, the message is about the Kingdom of God - those who obery the King - the Father of mankind!  His Teachings are eternally true and able to do what He gave them for.]


      53.  It came to pass after this, when Jesus finished these words, he passed on from there.


      54.  He came to his own country and was teaching the people in the synagogues.  The Pharisees were amazed and said in their heart: Whence came to this one the wisdom and power to do these deeds?


      55.  Is this not the son of the smith and Mary?  Do you not know all these: his mother Mary, his three brothers: Joseph, Simon and Judah,


      56.  and his sisters?  Do you not know all these who are with us?  Whence came to this one all these things?


      57.  So they were confused about him.  Jesus answered them: A prophet is not without honor except in his own land, city and house.  [Jesus obviously was claiming to be a prophet. “Christians” have been confused by adopting the lies of Paul into their belief in Jesus – who clearly said no one can serve two masters. As Jesus foretold – they reject his words to believe the words of another – even though they claim Jesus to be God incarnate – does that really sound reasonable?  Note throughout the HGOM that Jesus (Joshua) calimed to be a human - not Divine or a demi-god.  God declared Jesus (Joshua) was begotten at his baptism, not at his birth - it cannot be both ways, can it?]


      58.  Then he did not wish to do there any sign because of their little faith. [Not that he was unable to do any works there because of their lack of faith.]




      Chapter 14


      1.      At that time Herod the Tetrarch heard reports about Jesus.


      2.      He said to his servants: Behold I believe that John the Baptizer is doing these miracles.


      3.      This happened because Herod had seized John in those days and had bound him in prison because he was reproving him that he should not take Herodias for a wife because she was the wife of his brother.  [Torah prohibition to near of kin sexual relations?  See Leviticus 18.]


      4.      John was saying to him: She is not permissible to you.


      5.      Then behold Herod wished to kill him, except for fear of the people who believed he was a prophet among them.


      6.      On the feast of Herod’s birthday, he called the nobles of the kingdom to eat with him, and while they were eating, his daughter danced among them and it was pleasing to Herod.


      7.      He swore to give her whatever she asked from him. [Note later accounts embellish the tale.  In many things the Hebrew Matthew is a simpler account - proof of origin.]


      8.      The girl, being instructed by her mother, asked for the head of John the Baptizer in a bowl.


      9.      The king was very sad because of the oath which he had made before those invited.  But he commanded to do so


      10.  and sent to kill John in prison.


      11.  They brought the head of John in a bowl and gave it to the girl and the girl gave it to her mother.


      12.  Then the disciples of John came and took the body and buried it and the disciples told the matter to Jesus.


      13.  When Jesus heard it, he departed from there in a boat and went into the wilderness of Judea.  When the crowds heard they followed him from all the cities.


      14.  When they came out he saw behind him a numerous people; so he extended kindness to them and healed all of their diseases. [One consistant attribute of Jesus was his kindness and care for others, truly embodying what he taught, which is what God had taught in the Torah.]


      15.  At evening time his disciples came to him and said to him: This place is limited and the time is advancing.  Let the crowds go into the towers that they might take the necessities for themselves.


      16.  Jesus answered them: They have no need to go; give them to eat.


      17.  They answered: We have nothing here except five loaves and two fish.


      18.  He said to them: Bring them to me.


      19.  Then he commanded that the people should sit on the grass.  When they sat he took the five loaves and two fish and as he looked into heaven he blessed them, divided them, gave them to his disciples and the disciples made distribution to the groups.


      20.  All of them ate and were satisfied.  They also ate the fish according to what they desired.  After they had finished, they took the fragments which remained and filled twelve seahs with them.


      21.  The number of those eating was five thousand men apart from women and children.  [I've seen some videos on YouTube where magicians immitate Jesus - including pulling fish from a bucket.  How did they get the power to do such things?  Deeper study revealed they invoke the powers of demons.  As with Moses and the Pharoah's magicians - they could do similar acts, but God prevailed over them.  I find much evidence Jesus was a witness and prophet for God, indeed, "that prophet" Moses foretold.  It's taken almost 2000 years for demons to aid replicating some of his miracles.  This is also why God said not to listen to what people say just because they work miracles.  The important thing is if they speak completely according to the Covenant Teachings of Elohim.]


      22.  After this, he commanded his disciples to assemble in a boat that they might go before him to the city to which the crowds were going.


      23.  After he left the crowds, he went upon a mountain and prayed alone.  At the time of evening he was standing alone.


      24.  The boat was in the midst of the sea and the waves of the sea were driving it because the wind was contrary.


      25.  At the fourth watch of the night Jesus came to them, walking on the sea.


      26.  When his disciples saw him walking on the sea they were alarmed, thinking he was a demon, and from the greatness of their fear they were crying out.


      27.  Then Jesus answered them and said to them: Let faith be among you because it is I; do not fear.


      28.  Peter answered and said to him: Master, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.


      29.  Jesus said to him: Come.  So Peter came down from the boat, walked on the sea and came to Jesus.


      30.  But when he saw the strength of the wind he feared exceedingly and as he began to sink he cried out and said: Master, save me!


      31.  Immediately Jesus stretched out his hand, took him, and said to him: Man of little faith, why did you doubt?


      32.  When they went up into the boat, the wind became quiet,


      33.  and those in the boat worshipped him and said: Truly you are the Son of God. [Elijah also knew the Scripture and proclaimed the word of God that it not rain until he declared it would rain again.  The Psalms have a passage about stilling the winds and waves – so Jesus calling upon them and then their obedience to him is somewhat like nature obeying Elijah – and may be one reason we find Moses and Elijah appearing to Jesus later in a vision seen by three of Jesus’ disciples: Moses foretold of him, and Elijah preceded him in being caught up to God in the air, although Elijah was spoken of as by chariot of fire, and Jesus was taken up in the clouds.]


      34.  When the people of the place recognized him they sent into all that kingdom and brought to him all who were sick with various kinds of diseases.


      35.  They implored him that he might be pleased to allow them to touch the skirt of his garment; and each one who touched him was healed.


      Chapter 15


      1.      Then the sages and the Pharisees came to Jesus and said to him:


      2.      Why do your disciples transgress the ordinances of antiquity by not washing their hands before eating? [The is no “ordinance” in the Torah from God commanding this practice, and Jesus was upholding the true “ordinances” by not demanding submission to ordinances added by men.  "Ordinances of antiquity"?  Recall that the Jews had altered their records massively during the first temple period.  I have no reason to doubt Jesus' responses to them considering the evils they have done to him, to those before him, and their hatred towards all mankind who are not "Jews". Anyone who wants proof that Orthodox Judaism has remained corrupted, and grown even worse since those days, should read the facts of their beliefs as written about by Michael Hoffman, of Independent History & Research.  I'd venture to say he is the greatest scholar on Judaism of our generation!  See: "Judaism Discovered"]


      3.      Jesus said to them: Why do you transgress the words of God because of your ordinances?


      4.      For God said: Honor your father and your mother and he who smites his father and mother will surely be put to death.


      5.      But you say that whatever word a man should say to his father and mother in regard to any donation he might give for him as a sinner, this iniquity itself will be make void to him.


      6.      So he does not honor his father and his mother, and you despise the words of God by your ordinances.


      7.      Woe, hypocrites; behold Isaiah prophesied concerning you and said:


      8.      Thus the Lord said: because this people has come near with their mouth and has honored me with their lips, but their heart is far from me


      9.      and their reverence toward me, which is taught, is the commandments of men.  [Isaiah 29:13-14 DSSB; ] “And the LORD said, Inasmuch as this people draw near to honor me with their mouth and with their lips, but have removed their hearts far from me, and fear of me has been like a human commandment that has been taught them; therefore, see, as for me I am about to do a marvelous work among this people, even a marvelous work and a wonder; and the wisdom of their wise men will perish, and the insights of their prudent men will be hidden.] [[The upcoming marvelous work among them might well be Jesus’ crucifixion by false testimony against him – AND – God raising him from the dead – AND – his ascending to the Ancient of Days as prophesied by Daniel – plus the miracles and works he was already doing amongst them (Israel). Those of Israel should read through the end of chapter 30. Christians need to ponder whether they observe the word of God – or not.  Who trusts more in Paul than YHWH and Y’shua?  All organized "Christianity" from Romans to Greeks to all Protestants and Evangelicals - even the Church of Christ, Seventh Day Adventists and Messianics!!!!  Who has believed God?  or Jesus?  As Elohim said: "Because you have rejected knowledge (knowledge He gave to Teach us), I will also reject you." ]]


      10.  Jesus called to the crowds and said to them: Hear and consider.


      11.  That which enters through the mouth does not soil the man, but that which goes out of the mouth soils the man. [Pharisees adding to the word of God are as bad as being a disciple of Paul who takes away from the words of God.  Those who publish false Scripture as true Scripture can be no better because they perpetuate falsehoods that detract from and contradict the words of God.]


      12.  Then his disciples came to him and said to him: Know that the Pharisees were perplexed by this word.


      13.  Jesus answered them: Every plant which my Father who is in heaven did not plant will be destroyed.

       [This is why I'm confident the evils of Israel will be doubly paid back upon Zionist Israel and all who follow the "oral torah's of Judaism - whose sign is the star of invoking demons - not the light of the Menorah.]

      14.  Leave them alone because the blind are leading the blind, and if a blind man leads another who is blind, both will fall into a pit. [Isaiah 42 prisons they dug for themselves?]


      15.  Peter answered him: Lord explain to us this riddle.


      16.  Jesus answered and said to them: Are you still without knowledge?


      17.  Do you not understand that every thing that enters through the mouth goes into the belly and all of it goes on to the natural place?


      18.  But that which goes out through the mouth is moved by the heart; this is what soils the man.


      19.  Because the defiled heart brings forth deceitfulness, murder, adulteries, robberies, the witness of liars and curses. [[[Saul, as was "Judaism", was guilty of each of these.  No record of Luke tells of a single mite being given to “the poor” in Jerusalem – see Acts 20-21 – Paul was enriching himself.  See: “Not Paul, but Jesus” by Jeremy Bentham.]]]  [[[[[If Jesus was teaching as Isaiah 42 foretold, how can those who reject him believe he was condemned to hell because Paul lied? (Talmud and other damnable writings of the Pharisees.)]]]]]


      20.  All these things are what (soil) the man.  Indeed eating without washing the hands does not soil the man.


      21.  After Jesus had said this, he went into the regions of Tyre and Sodom.


      22.  Then there came to him a certain Canaanite woman, who came from the lands of the East, crying out to him: Master, son of David, have mercy on me because my daughter is possessed by demons.


      23.  Jesus did not answer (her) a word.  So his disciples approached him and said to him: Our master, why do you abandon this woman who is crying out after us?


      24.  Jesus answered them: They did not send me except to the lost sheep from the house of Israel. [[Curious verse, as in other places Jesus spoke of taking the message to the gentiles – should be considered in context to this instance? or is this proof this event was inserted to the text?  Hadn't Jesus already healed the child of the Captain, who was not a "Jew"?  I think it may be added to add to the confusion Judaism sews about Jesus to this day?   .]]


      25.  Then the woman worshipped him and said: Lord help me.   [If the original word was "worshipped", this would lend proof the text was added, otherwise, "worshipped" was a mistranslation, as Jesus certainly knew, as did his disciples, that Jesus taught to only worship Elohim, and not any man.]


      26.  Jesus said to her: It is not good that a man should take the bread from his children and give it to the dogs. [No where else does Jesus say such a thing, and given the stance he took to take the same message to men of all nations, this just does not fit at all, and I highly suspect this account is a perversion of the original Hebrew Gospel account, added, and oddly added to convey some of the errant self worshipping beliefs of Rabbinical Judaism, who would not have had issue with such a statement.  This defies the fact that God created man in His image - not Jews are the only ones who are real humans, and all others are of no more concern than an animal!]


      27.  The woman answered: Often the dogs eat the pieces of bread that fall from the table of their master.


      28.  Jesus answered her: Woman, great is your faith, be it done to you as you asked.  So from that time on her daughter was healed.


      29.  When Jesus moved on from there, he went in to the region across Galilee to a mountain.  As he stood there


      30.  he saw many people (among whom) were many lame, leprous, those who limped, and many others; they fell at his feet and he healed them.


      31.  The people were amazed at how the dumb were speaking and the lame were walking and the blind were seeing, all of them were praising God. [They were not praising Jesus to be God manifest in the flesh, as John implies.]


      32.  Then Jesus said to his disciples: I have compassion on them because they have remained with me these two days since they came across and they have nothing to eat.  I do not want to lead them fasting (lest) they grow faint in the way.  ***


      33.  His disciples answered him: Whence will we be able to find bread in this wilderness to satisfy the people?


      34.  Jesus answered and said to them: How many loaves of bread do you have?  They answered: Seven and a few fish.


      35.  So Jesus commanded the people to sit upon the grass.


      36.  He took the seven loaves and broke them and gave them to his disciples and they gave to the people.


      37.  All of them ate and were satisfied and (from that which was remaining they filled) seven seahs.


      38.  Those who were eating were by number four thousand men besides women and children.


      39.  After this Jesus entered a boat and came to the land of Macedonia.


      Chapter 16


      1.  Sages and Pharisees came to him, tempting him to teach them some sign from heaven.  [Teach some sign of heaven – not show them some sign from heaven?]


      2.      Jesus answered them: Hypocrites, you say in the evening: Tomorrow will be a clear day because the sky is red.


      3.      Then in the morning you say: Today it will rain because the sky is dark.  If so, you know the law regarding the appearance of the sky, but you do not know the law regarding the times.


      4.      The offspring of evil-doers ask for a sign, but no sign will be given them except the sign of Jonah the Prophet.  Then he was separated (from them) and went away.


      5.      When Jesus came to the sea shore he told his disciples to prepare bread.  Then he entered a boat with his disciples, but the disciples forgot and did not bring any bread.


      6.      Jesus said to them: You have little understanding who think that you have no bread.


      7.      Do you not remember the five loaves and four thousand men how many seahs were left over?  Therefore you should understand that I am not speaking of natural loaves but I am saying to you that you should (beware) of the behavior of the Pharisees and Sadducees.


      8.      [These verses seem jumbled. 5 and 6 are listed as 5 and 8b.  7 was shown as 9-12 – this particular account in Shem-Tob’s Matthew may best be corrected to the Aramaic English if it doesn’t contradict the Hebrew account?  The passage directly addressed the Jewish teachers of his day, and given post-Jesus Jews would likely have stumbled on this particular passage.]


      9.      AENT 5-12; “And when his disciples came to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread with them.  But he said to them, “Watch and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the Sadducees.”  And they were reasoning among themselves, and saying, “It is because they had not taken the bread.  But Y’shua knew, and said them, “What are you thinking among yourselves, oh you of little faith, that it is because you did not bring the bread?  Still, you do not understand nor do you recall those five loaves of bread for the five thousand.  And how many baskets you took up!  Nor those seven loaves of bread for the four thousand.  And how many baskets you took up!  How is it that you do not understand that it was not about bread that I spoke to you, but that you should be aware of the leaven of the pharisees and the Sadducees.”  Then they understood that he did not say to be aware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and the Sadducees.”


      13. Jesus went out unto the Land of Syria (that is, Caesarea( and the land of          Philoph, called *Philipos), and asked his disciples saying: What do men say about me?


      14. They said unto him: Some say he is John the Baptizer, some say he is Elijah and  some Jeremiah or one of the prophets.


      15. Jesus said to them: What do you say about me?


      16. Simon, called Petros, answered and said: You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God, who has come into this world. [ Since this has Peter saying Jesus was pre existant son of God - it was surely added.  Who would also teach that those of all nations should repent to do the Torah of God as foretold also in the prophets as the Son of Man who would establish truth, justice and teach righteousness that man was created to live? (all men are descended from Adam and were created in the image of God – male and female created He them)  How can this not also be the one identified in Genesis 49:10, the one to whom the right to rule would be given?????]


      17. Jesus said to him: Blessed are you Simon bar Jonah because flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is heaven. [“in heaven”?]  [[as noted above, this may likely be added to foster belief in John and Paul and the Pope.]


      18. I say to you: you are a stone and I will build upon you my house of prayer.  The gates of Gehenna will not prevail against you


      19. because I will give to you the keys of the Kingdom of heaven.  Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven; whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.  [[The Jewish account appears to overstate what the Aramaic said?  Per the AENT for 16-19; “Shimon Keefa said, “You are the Mashiyach, the Son of the Living Elohim.”  Y’shua answered him and said ”Blessed are you Shimon, the son of Yona, because flesh and blood have not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven.  I say also to you that you are Keefa, and on this Keefa I will build my assembly, and the gates of Sheol will not subdue it.  To you I will give the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven, and any thing you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and all things that you loose on earth, will be loosed in heaven.”  The point in the Aramaic stands on the fact of who Jesus was proved to be by God – that Jesus being the “Son of God”, as born of the virgin, is to be what “the assembly” is built on who Jesus was – not on whatever Peter declared.  This may have been altered in the Jewish account to condemn Roman Christianity of Papal authority tracing back to Peter – but in fact, Rome is based upon Paul appointing “Elders” in Rome, as Peter did not appoint Elders in Rome and that whole can of worms is rooted in the writings of Paul, not Matthew, Peter, James, John or Jude.  There is nothing wrong with faithful and knowledgeable men guiding the assembly, in the knowledge from God and according to the Torah and Testimony of Jesus in Matthew – but as shown in Matthew’s account – Jesus was clear to teach that not even the Apostles were to have authority over others (chapter 23)– but were to be witness to the truth he taught.  Since God has already spoken at Sinai through Moses, and then the Prophets and Psalms of ancient record - I can see no reason to believe these were originally in the text of the Hebrew Matthew and are likely additions.  Was Peter the point before Rome?  God established justice and mercy long before Jesus - so I am confident Jesus was not holding up Peter as the foundation of the "Church" - that would be nonsense without these added verses that defy other things.  The account is high on the list of perversions to the Matthew account we have here and in the Greek texts.]


      20. Then Jesus commanded his disciples not to say that he is the Messiah.  [Messiah means “anointed” – Hebrew Scripture says many things are “anointed” – and not just people or one particular person only.  Therefore this should be understood that Jesus was anointed by God to Teach the truth whereby we may be saved by observing his word to do it (as “that prophet”), and also note that his words are in accord with the Instructions of God in the Hebrew Holy Scripture.  Where is any account from one of Jesus’ disciples that he was declared to be “The coming Messiah to destroy evil and reign on the throne of David” before his ascension to “the Ancient of Days” at the end of Matthew?  Prophecy was he was "cut off", and as for who was to be the "anointed king" - how long has Israel been without a king?!  How long has Israel been following the lying rabbi and pharisees and it has been even longer that they ALTERED the words of God by adding to them, taking away from them, and then killing the prophets who called for them to repent and return to God - that God be king again???!!!]


      21. Henceforth Jesus began to reveal to his disciples that it was necessary for him to go to Jerusalem and to suffer the injustice of many, from the priests and the elders of the people, until they should kill him; then on the third day he would arise.


      22. Peter took him aside privately and began to rebuke (him) saying: Far be it that it should be like this to you, Lord.


      23. Jesus turned, looked at him, and said to him: God away Satan; do not disobey (me), because you do not regard the word of God but the words of man.  [More proof that all was not based on whatever Peter said!  “Satan” in Hebrew means “accuser.”]


      24. Then Jesus said to his disciples: Whoever wishes to come after me let him despise himself, take the cross, that is, offer himself unto death, and come after me. [Likely told them he was to be crucified.]


      25.  Everyone who wishes to save his soul will lose it for my sake, and he who loses his life in this world for my sake will save his soul for the life of the world to come. [Kingdom of God that Enoch, Job, Abraham, Moses, David, Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel looked forward to – the time of the restoration of all things wherein the righteous will dwell forevermore with the LORD.]


      26.What profit is there for a man if he should gain the whole world (but) lose his soul forever; what good exchange does the man make if for present things that are spoiled he should give his soul to the judgment of Gehenna? [At some point all will give account of themselves before the great judgment seat of Elohim.  Those who escaped judgment in this life will face the eternal judgment of God, whether they believe in Him, or not.  Living a life that is true to God is rewarded; living a life that is unjustly against Elohim or your fellow human will surely receive what He said is just reconpense/reward.  The basic fact told is that this life has purpose - so we can choose and observe who we choose to become.  It's not that God does not know, this life is so we will know what we chose, that God will be justified in His just judgment.]


      27. Because the Son of God will come in the glory of his Father who is in heaven with his angels to reward each man according to his work. [Foretold in 1 Enoch, which Christians and Jews have removed from their Bibles.  How can we know the will of God if we refuse His instruction and then choose to follow self deluded liars, mad-men, false prophets, self worshipers, or pretend to blend faith in demons and God, as do some who invented both 613 or 7 commandment laws of the Rabbi?  See "Judaism Revealed" by Michael Hoffman.  Also note their historic hatred towards blacks in "The Strange Relationship Between Blacks And Jews" - 3 volumes, published by N.O. I., and I believe much contributed to by Michael Hoffman, an amazing source of historical record on Judaism.  For more recent history on the contributions of Judaism to the world, see the books of M.S. King, such as "The Bad War", and "Planet Rothschild".]


      28. Truly I say to you there are some of those standing here who will not taste death until they see the Son of God coming in his kingdom. [“See”, not “be in”.  Note some saw the glorified Jesus via a vision soon after this.]


      Chapter 17


      1.      After six days Jesus took Peter, James, that is Jimi, and John his brother and brought them to a high mountain where he might pray.


      2.      While he was praying he was changed before them and the skin of his face shone like the sun and his garments (became) white like snow.


      3.      (Then) Moses and Elijah, while speaking with him, (were revealed) to them and they told Jesus all which would happen to him in Jerusalem.  Peter and his companions were asleep.  Asleep but not asleep; awake but not awake.  They saw his body and the two men with him. [Seems to be modified to raise questions of fact, whereas the AENT is clear to say it was a vision VS physical reality – a wide awake vision.]


      4.      When they went away, then Peter said to Jesus: It is good to be here.  Let us make here three tabernacles, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah, because he did not know what he was saying.  [Christian comments have been Moses and Elijah appeared to represent the passing of the Law and Prophets upon his pending death.  This cannot be right because Jesus affirmed all the Law and Prophets to be unchanged in the least regard.  Rather it would appear to relate to Moses having foretold of him (Deu. 18:15, and Elijah because he had a major role to call Israel to repent and had also ascended to heaven with the chariot of fire – both likely comforting and encouraging Jesus for what was soon to come, and the hope of what was ahead of him, upon his ascending to the right hand of the Power on High.  One might also search through the writings of Moses and Elijah considering what they had to say about the one that God had anointed, "This day have I begotten you."  One can even observe the DSSB and Isaiah 53, that Isaiah was altered, as the one who was to be cut-off would again see the light of day, foretelling he would be resurrected?  Sure looks that way to me!  No wonder Judaics altered Isaiah in the Masoretic text of 900 CE!]


      5.      While he was still speaking, behold a cloud covered them, and they were greatly alarmed; while they were under the cloud they heard from the midst of the cloud a voice speaking and saying: Behold, this is my son, my beloved, my delight is in him, and you shall obey him. [This also seems to fit well with comments throughout to support that God declared Jesus the “unique” son of Israel prophesied of by Moses (Deut. 18:15 and Genesis 49:10) that all men must hear (and obey) or be “cut off”.  Declared by God in word and deed and by His Decree, witnessed according to the Torah and standards of witness (two or more witnesses).]


      6.      The disciples heard (this), fell on their faces to the ground, and feared exceedingly. [The account likens to YHWH/Elohim at Mt. Sinai – only His voice was heard from the cloud.]


      7.      When the voice ceased, Jesus said to them: Arise, do not fear.


      8.      They lifted up their eyes and saw no one except Jesus (Joshua) alone.


      9.      Jesus came down from the mountain and commanded them saying: Tell no man the vision you have seen until the Son of Man has risen from death. [As with the AENT – this event was said to be a vision.]


      10.  His disciples asked him saying: Why do the sages say that Elijah will come first?


      11.  He answered them and said: Indeed Elijah will come and will save all the world.


      12.  I say to you, he has already come, they did not know him,  [John taught repentance and immersion to then do the will of God faithfully.] and they did to him according to their desire.  So will they do to the Son of Man.  [Since the words of God through prophets are added “line upon line, and precept upon precept”, this is why immersion upon repentance is a Christian rite, as Jesus even submitted to it, but not in the sense of "baptismal regeneration" taught by some churches?  The focus here is about "saving all the world."  Obviously there were those who rejected John, as there are those who rejected Jesus/Joshua, but those who were saved were those who followed them and repented to serve God in truth and deed.]


      13.  Then the disciples understood that regarding John the Baptizer he was saying this.


      14.  It came to pass when he approached the crowds, a man came to him, bowing on his knees.


      15.  He said: Have mercy on me, Lord, and pity my son because he is terrified of an evil spirit and is very sick.  He grinds his teeth, (foams) at his mouth, falls from his place to the ground, and falls sometimes into fire and sometimes into water.


      16.  I brought him to your disciple(s), but they were unable to heal him.


      17.  Jesus answered and said: Evil generation, woe to you who deny; how long will I be with you, how long will I bear your trouble?  Bring him to me. [Context of Jesus bearing our infirmity, not our sin.  God had already said that the sins of the unrighteous will not be imputed to a righteous man, nor the righteousness of a good man be imputed to the wicked.  See Ezekiel 18:20.  To declare otherwise is to testify against God and a true prophet.]


      18.  [[The text of Shem Tob switches to quotes from Mark 9:20 through 28, rather than staying with Matthew – curious at best if he was making an account of Matthew to debate or argue against Christianity to Jews.  The Mark account is not the focus of my study, so the AENT account is hereby substituted in place of the copied verses from Mark.  In Matthew Jesus addresses their lack of belief; in Mark it is their lack of faith – by faith rather than belief that results in works is a primary difference between the teachings of Jesus and Paul.]]  ***”  And  Y’shua rebuked it, and the demon went out from him.  And the boy was healed from that moment.


      19.  Then the disciples drew near to Y’shua while he was alone and said to him: “Why were we not able to heal him?”


      20.  Y’shua said to them, “Because of your unbelief.  For truly I say to you that if you had faith in you like a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, move away from here, and it would move.  And not a thing would be able to prevail over you.  [Jesus was clearly speaking to the twelve disciples, to whom he had already granted authority over such things.  Due to the number of proofs against those who claim such powers today to have done such miracles in Jesus name, and his comments about those he said he never knew – working miracles cannot be more important than teaching what Jesus taught – the proper interpretation and application of the Torah, Psalms and Prophets.  Also keep in mind that Jesus said an evil generation seeks a sign.]


      21.  But this kind of demon does not come out except by prayer and fasting.


      22.  They were in Galilee and Jesus said: The Son of Man will be delivered into the hand of men.


      23.  They will kill him and on the third day he will arise.


      24.  They came to Capernaum-Martha and the tax collectors drew near to Peter and said to (him): your teacher does not follow the custom to pay tax.


      25.  Thus they spoke.  (He) went into the house and Jesus anticipated him saying to Peter: What is your judgment, Peter, the kings of the earth, from whom do they take tribute, from their sons or from foreigners?


      26.  He answered him: From foreigners.  Jesus said to them: If so the sons are (free).  Then he said: Do not be dismayed because of this.


      27.  He said to Peter: Go to the sea and cast a fishing hook and fish with it because in the mouth of the one you will catch first you will find a silver coin.  That you will give for us.  [Don’t be dismayed by taxes.]


      Chapter 18




      1.      At that time the disciples drew near to Jesus and said to him: Whom do you think is great in the kingdom of heaven?


      2.      He called a (small) lad (and placed him in their midst).


      3.      He said: I say if you do not turn to become like this lad, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.


      4.      [Missing in the HGOM. Somewhat redundant.]


      5.      He who receives a lad like this in my name receives (me).


      6.      He who causes one of the small lads who believe on me to stumble, it would be good for him to tie a millstone upon his neck and be cast into the depth of the sea.  [Of all the sins Jesus spoke about, child abuse was second only to blaspheming God? Especially abusing a child who believes in Jesus.  Who dares identifying these sinners?  And are there those who fain belief in Jesus? (child abusers in organized religion who have not received justice and the perpetrators were protected from the judgment as commanded by Elohim.)]


      7.      (Woe to the inhabitants of the world because of confusion, because confusion must come) He also said: Woe to the man who come because of it.  [There has been no greater confusion in world history than exists today because of believing those God commanded not to hear what they say to you.  See “Jesus Words Only” in various discussions of the principles laid out in Deut. 4, 12, 13 and 18.  What greater confusion has existed since Rome put Paul and other worthless accounts in the "Bible"?  When will Judaism awaken to Elohim and cut off continued belief in their "Oral Torah" that defies God?]


      8.      If your hand or your foot causes you to stumble cut it off and (cast it)  from you; it is better for you to enter into life (blind) or lame than having two hands and two feet for you to be given to everlasting fire.


      9.      If your (eye) should cause you to stumble, pick it out and cast it from you.  It is better for you to enter into life with one eye than to have two eyes and be given to Gehenna. [Teachings in the Sermon on the mount covered this? And the point was that sin requires severe repentance, not that sin comes from our eyes, but our hearts.]  [[There is no record that his disciples took these to be literal.]]  [[[It is a very hard thing to do, if one dares to spurn the lies told by those who came before us.  One believes God will serve and obey Him.  One who obeys God will use His Instruction to determine who spoke on His behaf, from those who testify against Him or His anointed one.]]]


      10.  Take heed lest you judge one of the small lads.  I say to you, their angels always see the sons of my father who is in heaven,


      11.  and the Son of Man has stopped saving the enemy.  [[[ *** Marked departure from current texts – it would fit that the text needs to be refocused to delete the questionable cutting off hands and feet and gouging out eyes, to then continue the context with what Jesus was saying about the little ones who believe in him?]]]  [This is also quite different to say he has stopped saving the “enemy” – which God identifies in the Ten Declarations to be those who do not observe and do His Commandments as their manner of life.  Dare we believe Elohim in the Standards He gave us in the Covenant, per the "Valediction of Moses" account, and the records of the Prophets in the Dead Sea Scrolls Bible?  If we are not willing to cast aside a proven liar, the not-apostle Paul/Saul, how can we say we believe God or Jesus????]


      12.  What is your opinion?:  If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them (runs off), will he not leave the ninety-nine in the mountains and go seek the one which has strayed?


      13.  If he should find it, truly I say to you he will rejoice over it more than the ninety-nine which did not go astray.


      14.  Thus (my) Father who is in heaven does not wish that any of these lads should be lost. [Those who are young and immature tend to wander off in curiosity, but those who are mature will not.  For those who are mature, and know, this would be akin to a righteous man abandoning his righteousness to do evil – which is condemned – and per the word of God, his previous righteousness will not save him.]  [[All who have trusted in a perverted gospel need to repent to the truth, lest they remain in error and show their love is for the lie, not the truth of God.]]


      15.  At that time Jesus said to Simon, called Petros: If your brother sins against you, reprove him privately.  If he listens to you, you have gained your brother.  [These teachings about correction between brethren are totally in keeping with the Teachings of Elohim and the judgments as He gave them for our use.]


      16.  If he does not listen to you, reprove him before another; if by every oath he does not listen to you, add still one or two (in order that your words might be before) two or three witnesses, because by two or three witnesses a word will be established. [Torah principle of testimony and witness.]


      17.  If by every oath he does not listen, tell it in the assembly; and if he does not listen to the assembly consider him as ostracized, an enemy, and cruel.


      18.  Truly I say to you that every oath which you shall bind on earth is bound in heaven and every (oath) which you shall loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.  [Doing the will of God on earth, as it is in heaven, is to be judging per the Instructions of God in the Torah.  Recall the instructions in "The Lord's Prayer - that the will of God be done on earth as it is in heaven.]


      19.  Also I say to you, if two of you wish to make peace on earth, everything which (you) ask will be yours from (my Father) who is in heaven.  [Given the lack of peace on earth, and prophecy of God judging the earth and its inhabitants, the number of peaceful souls who have perished throughout history, and that evil continues to multiply, and the dullness of mind that God is not concerned until bad times come to America (ignoring the plight of Christians in Africa, or of the poor during the dark and middle ages), I really don't believe this is that peace will come when two people on earth agree to want peace.  It seems to fit well with the concept of judgement in a matter where the Law standards of Justice give us the right to show mercy to another, and that forgiveness is granted when two agree.  An example would be the one who owed much and they and their children were to be sold to pay the debt.  Mercy should beget mercy, but as we can observe in the parable, and in life, mercy towards some does not of necessity beget mercy towards others.  (As in the song of the woman who takes in a poisonous snake, which then bites and kills her upon his recovery from nearly freezing to death.)]


      20.  In every place where two or three are joined together in my name there am I in (their) midst. [Context is judgment according to the instruction of God.  God is with the individual, as seen in the crucifixion narrative, and in Daniel.]


      21.  Then Peter drew near to him saying: Lord, if my brother sins against me, shall I forgive him unto seven times? {Context is still of godly judgment; we are to prefer mercy, and to accept the standard God gave be sufficient for “and so he shall be forgiven,” told repeatedly through Leviticus.  Forgiveness is only limited by the Instruction of God on the topic – not individual preference.  One example is that of pre-meditated murder with malice of forethought - carefully note when God gave clear instruction to not show mercy, yet we are to defer judgment in those matters to a court of law, not taking vengeace out by our own hands.  Also note the instances where God said He does excuse one who kills another in the heat of passion, such as when one catches their mate committing adultery.  Use your God given mind to know the differences - it is not hard to do.  Do note the blessings and the curses, as they are a guide to use with the Decrees of Elohim.]


      22.  Jesus said to him: I do not say to you unto seven, but unto seventy-seven.


      23.  At that time Jesus said to his disciples: The kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who sat to make a reckoning with his servants and ministers.


      24.  As he began to reckon one came who owed about ten thousand pieces of gold.


      25.  But he had nothing to give and his master commanded to sell him and his children and all which was his to repay the value.


      26.  The servant fell before his master and implored him to have pity on him and to be patient with him because he would repay everything.


      27.  Then his master had pity on him and forgave him everything.


      28.  But that servant went out and found one of his comrades who owed him a hundred pieces of money and he grasped him and struck him saying:


      29.  …trust me and be patient with me and I will repay everything.


      30.  But he was not willing to listen to him; so (he) brought him to the prison until he repaid him everything.


      31.  The servants of the king saw that which he did and they were very angry and went and told their master.


      32.  Then his master called him and said to him: Cursed servant, did I not forgive you all your (debt) when you placated me?


      33.  So why did you not forgive your servant when he supplicated you as I forgave you?


      34.  His master was angry with him and commanded to afflict him until he should repay him all the debt.


      35.  Thus will my Father who is in heaven do to you if you do not forgive each man his brother with a perfect heart.  [ As the Torah had already instructed.  Carefully note in Leviticuse where God said, "And so he shall be forgiven", as well as what He said of those who did not forgive when He said they are to be forgiven.  Those who rejected forgivess from the heart, as told by God were to be "cut-off" from the brethren.]








      Chapter 19




      1.      It came to pass when Jesus finished these words he passed on from Galilee and came to the outskirts of the land of Judah across the Jordan.


      2.      There followed him large crowds and he healed all of them.


      3.      Then the Pharisees came to him to tempt him.  They asked him saying: Is it permissible for one to leave his wife for any matter and to give her a bill of divorce?  [The 'oral torah' of the Pharisees is horribly out of alignment to the Instructions as given by Elohim.  Both man and woman were created in the image of God, and are therefore due the same righteous Standards given by God, not that men are the only ones capable to do the will of God.  Study of the Instructions on divorce, as given by God, show the Pharisees then, and even moreso now, are self blinded - God is not unjust as they teach!  God gave reasons for women to be granted a divorce! (not receiving their "marital due" is mentioned, and the basic understanding may well fit that divorce not be given for any cause, but is permitted if one mate is obnoxious to the other?  Marriage should be a partnership; "How can two walk together, except they agree?"  Marriage should not be a battleground, or it's covenant violated.  If you cannot get along peacably, you should figure out why and make a change, not take revenge or give cause for revenge.  People should not remain married who cannot be faithful to the covenant of marriage, or of God.]


      4.      He answered them: Have you not read that he who made them of old, male and female he created them.


      5.      He said: Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and cleave to his wife and they will become one flesh.


      6.      If so, they are not two, but one flesh, and whatever the creator has joined together man is unable to [AENT "should not] separate.


      7.      (They) said to him: If so, why did Moses command to give her a bill of divorce and to send her away from his house?


      8.      He said to them: Moses, because of the obstinancy of your heart, said for you to leave your wives.  But from eternity it was not so. ["from the beginning" would more likely be the correct understanding, harkening back to Adam and Eve.]  [[If Jesus (Joshua/Yeshua) was a true prophet, he had to keep to the Teachings as given by God.  Since the Torah is clear to say more than "adultery" is a just cause, I'm confident this account must keep the Teachings and Judgments of God intact.  See the comments on divorce noted in the Sermon on the Mount, as they need to be kept in persective here.  The issue previously had to do with considering themselves divorced when they were not providing the cirtificate of divorce as Elohim commanded - thus not completing what He had told them to do, and since it was left undone, they were not divorced in the eyes of Elohim.  Pay attention to the details as given by God.]


      9.      I say to you that everyone who leaves his wife and takes another, if not for adultery, commits adultery; and he who takes her who has been divorced (commits adultery). [Given all the errors in the "New Testament", particularly from Paul and his disciples, or of Rome, or of the not apostle John's writings, since God Himself has divorced Israel for her unfaithfulness to the Covenant - is God not able to cast asunder that which He joined?  In reality, this is not in accord to the Law and the Prophets, and therefore I have little doubt it was put in to cause confusion against the fact that Jesus was teaching the proper interpretation and application of the Teachings, Judgments, and Mercy of God, as well as the Curses and Blessings of God.]


      10.  Then his disciples said to him: If the matter of a man with his wife is so, it is not good to take her.


      11.  He said to them: This matter is not for everyone but for those to whom it has been given.


      12.  Because there are eunuchs from their birth; these are those who have not sinned.  (There are eunuchs made by man) and there are self-made eunuchs who subdue their desire for the sake of the kingdom of heaven; these are (those who enter) into great prominence.  Whoever is able to understand let him understand.    [[[The teachings about divorce and being celibate are two curious elements of the Catholic Faith that run counter to the Decrees of God from the beginning.  All one has to do to understand what God said in the Torah – that it cannot be added to or taken away from in its substance of fact and principle.  Because this runs counter to what Jesus taught in the Sermon on the Mount and does alter the Torah and Law instructions – it may best be set aside as a likely alteration/addition to suit an attack against the teachings of Jesus.  If they altered the Sermon on the Mount from divorce without a divorce certificate to be wrong – to then say just to look at a woman and note her desirability is to commit adultery with her in your heart – there is no reason to also suspect this passage to be altered.  Desiring the wife of another is violation of the commandment not to desire the wife of another.  Jesus was teaching the proper interpretation and application of the Torah in an enlightened way – as no prophet before or since him.  The fact remains that divorce WAS and IS permitted by God when done per His instruction.  Adultery was punishable by death – but most were merciful to permit divorce and not demand their death.  The other main reason was for what might be translated as the wife being obnoxious to her husband (or husband being obnoxious to his wife?).  As another passage in Scripture speaks: “How can two walk together unless they agree?”  Due to changes in Scripture by Christians and Jews, it would be best to understand the Teachings and every word of God to prevail as our manner of life, that “Man shall live by every word  that proceeds from the mouth of God”.  Therefore I reject the binding of this over the previously given word of God.  I would also caution taking the advice of a "Rabbi" on the matter, as they had thousands of years to be honest with Christians about the Covenant and have only shown their disdain for "gentiles" by NOT teaching them properly when they fully could have!!!  (see volume 1 of "The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews" published by NOI.)  I reject their "Oral Torah" to be any authoritative understanding from Elohim.  Beware of them as you would a wolf in sheeps clothing.  Regarding the matter of eunuchs, see Isaiah 56 and 57.  Note this carefully.  Also, when in all the Torah did God say it is a sin to marry???!!!!  I have no doubt this account was added to support "Catholic" doctrines from their "priests" and "popery".]]]


      13.  Then they brought children to him that he might lay his hand on them and pray for them, but his disciples were driving them away.


      14.  Jesus said to them: Permit the lads to come to me and do not restrain them, for of them is the kingdom of heaven.  Truly I say to you that one will not enter the kingdom of heaven except (he shall be) like these.


      15.  So he laid his hand on them and went on from there.


      16.  A young man came to him worshipping him and said to him: Rabbi what good thing shall I do to acquire the life of the world to come. ["worshiping" may be a bad translation.]


      17.  He answered him: Why do you ask about good?  No man is good; because God alone is good [except one Elohim (AENT).  But if you wish to enter life keep the commandments. [[Jesus was being brief with the commandments, as the young man was obviously familiar with them – Jesus couldn’t have been setting the first commandments aside to be nullified.]]


      18.  He said to him: What are they?  Jesus said to him: Thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, thou shalt not bear false witness against your neighbor.


      19.  Honor your father and your mother and love your neighbor as yourself.  [Which would include not hating your brother in your heart.]


      20.  The young man said to him: All these I have kept, so what yet do I lack?


      21.  Jesus said unto him: If you wish to be perfect go and sell all which you have and give it to the poor and you will have treasure in heaven and follow me.  [[Another reason to suspect the eunuch teaching is it was not any point here.  As for eunuchs and foreigners, see Isaiah 56 and 57.  It's about whose love for God is true, and that love is a verb, and is known by what it does.  Everything Elohim taught is observable - not some "spiritual" matter, but that we reform our minds to do His will indeed.  We make the Standards given by Elohim to be our standards for living justly, loving mercy, and walking humbly with Elohim and treating our fellow man as He said we should.  It isn't all fluff though, as even rules for war are included in the Torah, as well as reasonable environmental laws.]]


      22.  It came to pass when the young man heard he went away (angry) because he did not have much property. [AENT: "for he had many possessions."] [[Opposite of what current account says – another alteration?, specifically a Jewish Rabbi alteration?  Why would Jesus say to do that which one is not capable of?  Even with Cain, the Instruction of God had to do with what we are capable to do, not doing what we are not capable or responsible to do.]]


      23.  Again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to enter the eye of a needle than a rich man to the kingdom of heaven.  [[Another likely alteration or addition. AENT account is it is easier for a rope to enter the eye of a needle.  Shem-Tob obviously had a poorly translated copy of Matthew, or what?  If entry is based according to our works being living by the Instruction in righteousness – to live by the word of God – if a wealthy man honors God and His word – including being generous to those in need – because he recognizes all he has is from God.]]


      24.  Again I say to you, it is easier for a camel [rope] to enter the eye of a needle than a rich man the kingdom of heaven.  [Recall that God told Israel when they had gained wealth they would then start to depart from Him and trust in their riches, rather than God.  Also note the state God said Israel would be in at the end – that they valued His instruction about gain, but would be ignoring how He said they should live their lives and thereby not know His impending judgment against them.  See "The Song of Moses" and teh end of Isaiah 42.]]


      25.  The disciples heard and were exceedingly amazed and said to Jesus: If so, who can save (them)?


      26.  He turned to them and said: With man the matter is difficult, but with God everything is easy (AENT "possible").  [Doing the will of God should be natural, or easy, for a believer.  As Jesus said, “My yoke is easy and my burden is light”, but we must be yoked to him and his works – living justly, loving mercy and walking humbly with God and according to His Decree and promises – and to recognize the difference between good and evil, secular vs holy, who are brethren in belief and faith in God – and who are His enemies, even if they believe they are not.  Good examples are Orthodox Rabbinical teachings of the Talmusd over the Covenant as given by Elohim, or the Catholic Church to have fostered child abusers.  I think the wildest departure from God by Orthodox Judaism can be noted in "The Law of the Tent", and "The Law of the twig."  See the books of Michael Hoffman for details - evidnce of how deluded they have become in 3000 years of rejecting the Covenant as given by Elohim at Sinai.  See "Judaism Discovered" and "The Talmud Tested".  Both may be purchased from Michael Hoffman at]


      27.  Peter answered and said to him: Behold we have left all to follow after you; what will be ours?


      28.  Jesus said: Truly I say to you who follow me, in the day of judgment when man sits upon the throne of his glory you also will sit upon the twelve thrones of the twelve tribes of Israel.  [when man, should most likely be "son of man", as he ascended to the right hand of the Power on High - the Ancient of Days.  ??  [Could this have to do with Daniel considereed along side Genesis 49:10 - the one to whom the right to rule is?  The foretold time when all on earth of all the nations would know God,  and not be in need of anyone teaching them about God?  One thing for sure is that Judaism has not been busy to tell the nations of His pathways for about 3000 years or more - even though God said this is what they were to do - to be His witnesses to the Nations of the goodness of His Law.]


      29.  Everyone who leaves his house, and (his brothers), also his sisters, his father, his mother, his wife, and his children for my name will receive (a hundred) like them and will inherit the kingdom of heaven.


      30. Many who are first will be last and many who are last will be first.

      Chapter 20




      1.      After this Jesus said to his disciples: The kingdom of heaven is like a certain individual who was master in his house (who arose early) in the morning to hire laborers (for his vineyard).


      2.      He hired them for one dinar a day and sent them into his vineyard.


      3.      He went out at the third (hour) of the day and saw others standing idle in the market place.


      4.      He said to them: Go also you into my vineyard and that which is suitable I will give to you.


      5.      So they went.  Then (he) came out again at noon and also at the ninth hour and did the same.


      6.      At the eleventh hour he went out also and found others standing and he said to them: Why do you stand idle all day?


      7.      They answered him: No man has hired us.  So he said to them: Go also you into my vineyard (AENT: "and you will receive what is right").


      8.      It came to pass at evening, the master of the vineyard said to the officer over the laborers: Call them that I might give to them their wages.  He began with the last and finished with the first.


      9.      The last received on dinar.


      10.  So the first thought they would receive more, but he gave only a dinar to each of them.


      11.  Then the first murmured against the master of the vineyard


      12.  saying: These last worked one hour and you have made them like us who have worked all day (in) the heat.


      13.  He answered one of them and said to him: My friend, I have done you no injustice.  Did I not hire you for one dinar?


      14.  Take it and go.  If I wish to give to this last like you


      15.  may I not do according to my desire?  (Is there evil) in your eyes when I am good?


      16.  So the last shall be first and the first last.  Many are called but few are the chosen. [Those who were chosen were working in the vineyard, not waiting around for crumbs from the table.  What works does God require?  "Live justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with thy God."  All of these are given perfectly reasonable and doable instructions in the Law and the Testimony, and finally in the Teachings of Jesus being in alignment to the Teachings and Covenant of Elohim.]  [[See Ezekiel 18, as this teaching should be considered - that if one repents later in life to do the will of God faithfully, that their previously done evils will not be accounted against them.  Also consider that those who are righteous, but later act wickedly, that their previous righteousness will not be accounted to them because they became evil.  This proves that "once saved, always saved" is a false doctrine and has nothing in Elohim or Joshua.]


      17.  Jesus drew near to Jerusalem and took his twelve disciples secretly and said to them:


      18.  Behold we are going up to Jerusalem and the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief sages and priests and they will condemn him to death. [Recall Moses and Elijah had told him what was to come.]


      19.  Also they will deliver him to the Gentiles to smite and destroy him, but on the third day (he will arise).

       [Isaiah 53 was altered to remove the account that the one spoken of was to see the light of day again - foretelling his resurrection?  See the Dead Sea Scrolls Bible account of Isaiah.]

      20.  Then came the wife of Zebedeel with her sons bowing down and making a request from him.


      21.  He said to her: What do you wish?  She said: That you command these my two sons to sit the one on your right and the others on your left in your kingdom.


      22.  Jesus answered them: You do not know what you are asking.  Are you able to endure the suffering and the death that I am going to endure?  They said: We are able.


      23.  Then he said to them: Drink my cup, but (that you should sit) on my left or my right is not for me to grant to your but to the one who is prepared before my Father.’  {Is it not to be "the kingdom of God", not '"the kingdom of Jesus"?  How is Jesus not "the one to whom the right to rule is given" of Genesis 49:10?]


      24.  The ten heard (this) and it was a matter of anger in their eyes in regard to the two brothers.


      25.  Jesus (brought them near) to him and said to them: Know that the princes of the Gentiles have dominion over them and their great ones seek (to subdue them).


      26.  It will not be so among you, because he who wishes to be great among you (will serve) you.  [Note that Jesus call  that we are all brethren, not that he was setting up a  Pope after Peter, or that there are to be "Elders" to rule over a congregation of believers.  Note who Jesus did say he will send?]


      27.  He who among you wishes to be first will be your servant, {Not lord over others as a "Pope, Priest, Preacher, or Elder".]


      28.  (just as) the Son of Man did not come that they might serve him, but that he might serve and give himself as a ransom for many. [Ransom, not sacrifice.] [[Ransom price to set the prisoner free – we cannot be set free from falsehoods until we are willing to observe and do the truth of God as taught from the Torah by Yeshua – “Salvation” is of him, and it was freely given to us to know if we believe him and what he said is the Doctrine of God.  Joshua/Jesus certainly fully illuminated "The Holy Way" of Isaiah 35, the manner of life and conduct as given by Elohim from Sinai - and the direct promised fulfillment of God blessing the nations via Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  The will and standards God gave about living were not set aside by Jesus, as they are what he was teaching about - to set aside the teachings of men (Pharisees and Sages, whose sin was covered over by the Scribes - which is why Jesus said some choice things regarding them all.)]]


      29.  They entered into Jericho and a crowd followed him.


      30.  Behold two blind men came out beside the road.  They heard the noise of the multitude and (asked) what this might be.  It was said to them: The prophet Jesus from Nazareth is coming.  Then they cried out saying: Son of David, have mercy on us!


      31.  But the crowd rebuked them (saying: Be silent; ) they nevertheless were crying out and saying: Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!


      32.  So Jesus stopped, called them and said: What do you want (me) to do for you?


      33.  They said: Lord that our eyes might be opened.


      34.  Jesus had pity on them, touched their eyes and said to them: Your faith has healed you.  Immediately they saw, praised God, and followed him.  Then, all the people praised God because of this.


      Chapter 21




      1.      They drew near to Jerusalem and came to Bethpage on the Mount of Olives, and Jesus sent two of his disciples.


      2.      He said unto them: Go into the fortress which is opposite you and immediately you will find a she ass and her colt (with her).  Untie them and bring them to me.


      3.      If a man should say anything to you, tell him the master has need of them and immediately he will let them go.


      4.      All this was to fulfill the word of the prophet saying:


      5.      Say to the daughter of Zion: behold your king comes to you, just and victorious is he, humble and (riding) upon a she-ass and upon a colt the foal of a she-ass. [Zechariah 9:9, Stone Edition; Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout for joy, O daughter of Jerusalem! For behold, your king will come to you, righteous and victorious is he, a humble man riding upon a donkey, upon a foal, a calf of she-donkeys.  10. I will eliminate any (battle) chariot from Ephraim and any (war) horse from Jerusalem, and the bow of warfare will be eliminated; and he will speak peace to the nations.  His dominion will be from sea to sea and from the river to the ends of the earth.”  [***Note the coming king, but God said He would eliminate battle chariots and war horses from Jerusalem – not the one identified as “he will speak peace to the nations” and whose dominion would be to the ends of the earth.  They falsely judged and murdered Jesus, so as to set aside the words spoken in the prophecy.  Those words are among those which are yet to be fulfilled - and considering the evils growing on the face of the earth that can be traced back to include those who killed Jesus in the first place - I must pray "Come quickly, Lord Jesus (Joshua)".  God will not remain silent forever.  Read Psalms 1 and 2.  Have not the kings of the earth set themselves against Elohim and His anointed one (Joshua/Yeshua/Jesus)?  Evidence is all around us that God is holding them in derision - and they are cursed by God, who laughs at their thoughts to separate the chord He maintans over all.]


      6.      Then they went and did as Jesus commanded them.


      7.      They brought the she-ass and the colt, and Jesus rode upon it while the others placed their garments and clothes upon them.  Then they made the ascent.


      8.      Many of the crowd spread out their garments in the way, and others (cut) branches from the trees and cast them before him and behind him,


      9.      calling out saying: Hosanna, savior of the world, blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord; hosanna, our savior, may you be glorified in heaven and on earth. [Psalm 118:26 – 27, note DSSB 27, “The cords of the festal procession are with branches” which notes Judges 16:11; 15:13; Ezekiel 3:25.] [[There are significant differences between the DSSB, the MT, and LXX – which is obviously a development of Christians, and are not completely faithful to the Hebrew account of the Holy Scripture, (Torah, Prophets, Psalms and Writings).  Use extreme care to not put invented words into the mouth of God or any of His true Prophets. This can be easily seen in Psalm 110, which will be upcoming shorty.]]


      10.  It came to pass afterwards, when Jesus entered Jerusalem, all the city quaked saying: Who is this?


      . [At the Festivals it was required to come to Jerusalem for the “rehearsals” commanded in the Torah, so many were present that had not been there previously.]

      11.  The people said to one another: Jesus the prophet from Nazareth which is in Galilee. 

      12.  Jesus entered the house of the Lord and found there those who buy and sell.  He overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who were selling doves.


      13.  He said unto them: It is written, my house will be called a house of prayer for all the nations, but you have made it a cave of violent men. [Isaiah 56: 7; Jeremiah 7:11.  Isaiah 56: 6-8, DSSB; “Also the foreigners who join themselves to the LORD, to be his servants, and to bless the LORD’s name and observing the sabbath without profaning it, and who hold fast my covenant: these I will bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer.  Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices will rise up to be accepted on my altar, for my house will be called a house of prayer for all peoples.  Thus says the Lord God, who gathers the outcasts of Israel; I will gather still others to them besides those already gathered.”  Jeremiah 7: 3 – 11 (11), Stone Edition; “Thus said HASHEM, Master of Legions, God of Israel, Improve your ways and your deeds and I will cause you to dwell in this place.  Do not trust the false statements that say, ‘The Sanctuary of HASHEM, the Sanctuary of Hashem, the Sanctuary of HAHSHEM are they! ‘ Only if you truly improve your ways and your deeds; if you truly do justice between man and his fellow; do not oppress stranger, orphan and widow; and do not shed innocent blood in this place; and do not go after the gods of others, to your own harm – then I will cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your forefathers, forever and ever.  Behold you trust in the false statements that are of no use.  Can one steal, murder, and commit adultery and swear falsely and burn incense to the Baal and go after the gods of  others that you never knew, and then come and stand before Me in the Temple, upon which My Name is proclaimed, and say, “We are saved!’ – in order to continue these abominations? (11)  Has the Temple, upon which My Name is proclaimed, become a cave of criminals in your eyes?  Moreover – behold, I have seen it – the word of HASHEM.] [[“Improve your ways” was the same commanded God gave to Cain before he murdered his brother Abel.  It has always been the pathway God commanded of man.]]


      14.  Then the blind and lame came to him in the temple and he healed them.


      15.  The chief sages and priests came to see the wonders which he did.  The young boys were calling out in the temple saying: Let the Son of God be praised.  The sages mocked


      16.  and said to him: Have you not heard what these are saying.  He answered them and said: I heard them.  Have you not read: From the mouth of children and babes You have established strength? [Psalm 8:2, Stone Edition; “Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings You have established strength, because of Your enemies, to silence foe and avenger.”  It’s interesting to note the points of what things do, as in this verse, “to silence foe and avenger”.]


      17.  He left and went out to Bethany and (spent the night) there and there he was explaining to them the kingdom of God.


      18.  It came to pass in the morning that he returned to the city hungry.


      19.  He saw a fig tree near the road and drew near to it but found nothing on it except leaves.  He said to it: May fruit never come forth from you.  Immediately the fig tree dried up.


      20.  The disciples saw, were amazed, and said: How is it the fig tree dried up immediately?


      21.  Jesus answered and said to them: If you have faith without doubt, not only to the fig tree will you do (this), but should you say to this mountain that it should depart and go (into the sea), it will be done.


      22.  Everything which you shall ask in prayer while believing, you will receive.  [The point at hand had to do wtih the upcoming rejection of him, the unjust trial, and his execution on the cross.  I have yet to hear of such miracles by prayer of devout Christians - and this seems too close tho other gospel's assurances of prayers that were inventions and have caused some to loose their faith because sincere, devout, and anguished of heart prayers were not answered as prayed.  I've had a number of prayers answered immediately, or nearly so, but what seems to flow from the account is the impending judgment upon Jerusalem because they rejected him, and they have been cursed of God ever sinse - who else could cause their plights or evils for the last 2000 years but God Himself????  And they accuse Jesus of putting them to the sword or seeking their destruction, when it was he who tried to get them to repent and obey God!!!!]


      23.  He went into the temple to teach and there came to him the sages, the priests, and the rulers of the people saying: By what power do you do this (and who gave you) this strength?


      24.  Jesus answered them and said to them: I also will ask you a question and if you tell me I also will tell you by what power I do (this).


      25.  The baptism of John when was it, from heaven or from men?  They grieved among themselves saying: What will we say.  If we say from heaven, he will say to us: Why did you not believe him?


      26.  If we say from men, we fear the crowd because all of them believe John was a prophet. {Note the role of prophets was to call people to repent from evil, to do good – as God Declared what is good – and that they do no evil –  God has said what is evil in His sight.  Evidently the leadership was as unbelieving as any today have show themselves to be – whether Jew or Gentile.]


      27.  So they said: We do not know.  He said: Also I will not tell you by what power I do (this).  [Note comments that John was believed to be “from heaven” – meaning he gave a Divinely inspired message – to return to God indeed – which is the same thing Jesus was Teaching – but in a way that even John the Baptist didn’t – and no other prophet in Jewish history ever has to date – and it’s been about 2000 years.  Only Jesus (Yeshua) came within the timeline shown in Daniel, as was noted by the “wise men” from the east.  Jesus being “from heaven” might be understood to be the same as John being from heaven – and John was the one who came to prepare the way, as foretold of Elijah, and might well be parred to “that prophet” foretold by Moses.  Judging by the divisions of faiths that center on Jesus and those who deny Jesus as “that prophet”, the standards given by God would best be understood by all men to be the standards taught by God, the Holy Prophets and Jesus, who was to be declared the coming king who would judge and rule from Jerusalem as God decreed – as following Jesus is to be following God because Jesus illuminated His word to be Everlasting, reliable and just.  The reason Jesus died was to fulfill Isaiah 53 - he was bearing upon himself the iniquity - unjust and sinful anti Law practices done against him - NOT that he died as a sin sacrifice for to take away the sins of those who unjustly charged, tried, falsely convicted, and had him executed.  He died as a result of their iniquity - not a sin sacrifice.  See comments later related to this important matter.  Back to the subject at hand, it should have been obvious to them who was behind doing the miracles, as God did miracles through the prophets to show He was with them.  Had they ever questioned Moses by whose authority he was working miracles?  It was obvious to everyone else.]


      28.  In that evening Jesus said to his disciples: What is your opinion?  A certain man had two sons; he approached (one) and said to him; Go my son today to work in my vineyard.  {The AENT account is Jesus was teaching his disciples in the presense of the leaders at the Temple - which clears up the idea his judgment was against his disciples - the judgment was against the leadership at the Temple.]]


      29.  He said to him: I do not wish to.  But afterward he repented and went.


      30.  He said to the other likewise and he answered him: Here I am, Sir, but he did not go.


      31.  Which of two did the will of the Father?  They said to him: The first.  Jesus said to them: Truly I say to you, violent men and harlots will precede you into the kingdom of heaven


      32.  because John came to you in the way of righteousness and you did not (believe him. But) violent men and harlots believed him and you saw it and did not turn in repentance.  Also afterward you did not repent to believe him.  To the one who has ears to hear let him hear in disgrace.  [[When will Judaism repent to hear the Testimony of God that Joshua (Jesus) was telling their forefathers who killed him?[[[This string of accounts (see vs. 21,22) shows possible alteration.  Jesus had already taught about prayer – and about fasting and prayer.  The fact is that millions have stumbled in faith because their sincere prayers were not answered as their faith expected.  Jesus had already taught about faith – that it is a faith that works as God Instructed for our good and that justice be established per the standards God gave.  He already addressed those things – but then we can observe passages that cursing trees to wither or mountains to move will be performed if we just “have no doubt,” which is to “have undoubting faith.”  This likens to the ending of Mark, which totally defies Jesus teachings in Matthew from one end to the other.  We have also seen where Shem Tob inserted the text of Mark into Matthew for some purpose, and it seems very reasonable to attempt to over state things that would lead to doubting the sure teachings of Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount.  Obviously not all the “disciples” of Jesus failed to believe him – as this text accounts.   Hopefully a better preserved text will surface, but we can judge the text by how it preserves the Hebrew Scripture of Jesus’ days on earth – or not.  In these passages the AENT makes better sense of the facts.  We can also judge it by whether the Instructions of God are altered or twisted against what God had clearly taught – such as His words to Cain or the words spoken to Satan when Adam and Eve were present – or the accounts of the Torah history and Everlasting Covenant.] [[Those who desire to do the will of God as taught in the Jewish Holy Scripture and Dead Sea Scrolls and who believe Jesus was teaching the Doctrine of God – should get together to openly discuss suspected alterations to the Hebrew and Greek Matthew and thereby participate in the work to “Restore!” of Isaiah 42, and those to whom God would write a book of remembrance, Mal. 3 (16-18)  DSSB: “Therefore, behold, I send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me; and they will suddenly come to his temple, the Lord, whom you seek and the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire; behold, he himself comes, says the LORD of hosts.  But who can endure them; [when?]they come?  And who shall stand when he [singular – “that prophet” of Deut. 18:15 – Jesus/Yeshua – the anointed by the Spirit of God to speak directly through him as did Moses] appears?  For he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers soap; and he will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver, and he will purify the sons of Levi, and refine them as gold and silver; and they shall offer to the LORD offerings to righteousness.  Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant to the LORD, as in the days of old, and as in former years.  And I will come near to you for judgment, and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against the false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the orphan, and those who turn aside the sojourner from his right, and do not fear me, says the LORD God.  *** For I, the LORD, change not; therefore you, O sons of Jacob, are not consumed.  From the days of your fathers  you have turned aside from my ordinances, and you have not kept them. Return to me and I will return to you, says the LORD of hosts.  But you say, “How shall we return?  Will a man rob God? [Most commonly taught to Christians as a reason to tithe – but God was saying to return to live as He had instructed and that through their doing as He directed here they would know how – but it surely was NOT merely tithing to exclude living justly, loving mercy and walking humbly with God]  Yet you rob me.  But you say, “How have we robbed you?” In tithes and offerings.  You are looking on appearances; for you rob me, even this whole nation.  Bring every tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my houses, and prove me now in this, says the LORD of hosts, if I will not open for you the windows of heaven, and pur out the blessing for you, until it overflows.  And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast fruit before its time in the field, says the LORD of hosts.  Your words have been arrogant against me, says the LORD.  Yet you say, “What have we spoken against you?”  You have said, “It is vain to serve God; and what profit is it that we have kept his charge and and that we have walked mournfully before the LORD of hosts?  And now we call the proud happy; indeed, those who work wickedness are built up; and indeed they tempt God and escape.”  (16)Then those that feared the LORD spoke one to another; and the LORD listened, and heard, and a book of remembrance was written before him, for those who feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.  So that they shall be mine, says the LORD of hosts, even my own possession, in the day that I make; and I will spare them, as a man spares his own son that serves him.  Then you will again distinguish between the righteous and the wicked, between the one who serves God and the one who serves him not.”  Note the work it would cause would be to distinguish between what is righteous and what is wicked – which will show WHO serves the LORD and who DOES NOT – which was the point Jesus made about those he declared he NEVER KNEW – the point is well established the modern “gospel of grace” by faith, without the works God declared righteous and just is a false gospel – not the true gospel of Jesus.  Their gospel of grace alone and/or faith alone is solely based on the doctrine of Paul – not God.]]  [[[It is impossible for Elohim to save Israel while Israel is locked into the lies of the Pharisees, Sages and "Oral Torah" (s?).  God is not mocked.  He will not be with those who believe only Jews have souls! Beware the Pharisees "Law of the Tent" and "Law of the stick" or "7 Noahite Laws" that declare Christians are to be killed?]]]


      33.  At that time Jesus said to his disciples and to a company of the Jews: Hear now the parable of the sower.  A certain honorable man planted a vineyard, walled it up on every side, built a tower in its midst, and also dug a vat in it, entrusted it to servants, and went on his way. [The possiblity exists that the previous question could be addressed by understanding that conversation was also with his disciples while in the company of unfaithful Jewish leaders, as the AENT says.]


      34.  It came to pass at the time of the gathering of the produce, he sent his servants to those  who were working to receive his produce.


      35.  But the workers took his servants, smote the first, killed the second, and the third they stoned with stones.


      36.  Again he sent many  more servants than the first and they did to them likewise.


      37.  Finally, he sent them his son saying: Perhaps they will honor my son.


      38.  The workers saw his son and said to one another: This is the heir.  Come let us kill him and we will inherit his estate. [Who falsely accused Jesus and sent him to death, as they also did others?  Who was behind altering the Scripture and establishing the Church at Rome to kill faithful servants of God and also prevent their members from knowing the Holy Scripture to know what God said?  Who has also altered the Hebrew account of the Holy Scripture since the days of Jesus, or as we have recently noted, that Judaism altered the Covenant words of God almost 3000 years ago!?  Dare we suspect there is a common source?  Look at the deeds and you will know whom they serve – be it God – or not.  To this day many Jews seem to give equal weight to the Talmud and Tanach – the words of men versus the words of Elohim.  Jesus taught to live by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God – so how does he stand condemned, but by those who deliberately altered the words of God to prevent seeing who Jesus really was, and the truth and grace of God that he clearly taught.] [[Who would know better what verses could be altered to lie to Christians and then also point out to Jews that Christians observe lies against God?  The same ones who foment division of the world today by evil schemes?]]


      39.  So they took him, cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him.  [Here we might consider Jesus was giving prophecy in the parable - prophecy of their killing him who was sent by God, the unique son, born of God at his baptism, and we can all see it was lies from their mouths that convicted him falsely.  none of the accusations in "The Trial of the Ages" link were true.]]]]


      40.  Now when the lord of the vineyard comes what will he do to them? [Who is "lord of the vineyard" but One Elohim, God Almighty.  May He come quickly to remedy those who destroy the earth, rob the workmen of their wages, and who pursue wealth and wickednes and "tradition" rather than righteousness and justice, who prefer the lies of men to the Standard given by One Elohim from Sinai.]]


      41.  They answered him saying: As for the wicked he will destroy them in misery and his vineyard he will give to other workers who will immediately give to him the portion of his produce. [When the TRUE gospel is known, it should cause immediately repenting to do as God Instructed (Torah instructions – including distinction between those of Israel and the sojourners/Gentiles who serve God and as Taught through Jesus (Yeshua).] [[Paul is abundantly proven to be a liar in “Jesus Words Only”, but most surely by the Truth of the One True God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  In an age of tyrany, telling the truth of God will likely be a crime.  Communism and Colonialism and Capitolism Usery are nothing but the Covenant of God defied - denial of every single truth given by God and denying His will for mankind.  Stand up for truth, justice and righteousness, as given by Elohim, or face the consequences for being faithless and denying Him what He alone is due.  ]


      42.  Jesus said to them: have you not read the Scripture, the stone the builders rejected has become the head of the corner, this was from the Lord, it is a marvel in our eyes.  [Psalm 118:22] [[To reject “that prophet” was to be “cut off” from the brethren – the warning given in Deut. 18.]] [[[The point of the wedding feast was a warning to those who were and would reject him.]]]


      43.  Therefore I say to you the kingdom of heaven will be torn from you and given to a nation producing fruit. [[Isaiah 42 and 56 – did Jesus teach it is honorable for ALL men to do the will of God in the Torah (Covenant) – that keeping the Torah is honorable?  Yes.]]  [[Zionism is a great evil.  See the writings of the non-Zionist Jews based in Monsey, NY.  They tell the truth on the Zionists, who lied, killed, stole and destroyed much to further their goals to retake the land of "Israel" by their own means because they tired of Elohim.  Zionism and Communism were both invented by Jews who rejected the Covenant of Elohim.]]


      44.  He who falls upon this stone will be cast down; he who falls upon it will be broken apart.


      45.  The chief priests and the Pharisees heard his parables and understood that he was speaking in regard to them. [The Pharisee movement was fairly new in Jesus’ days, but most Jews today give heavy weight to their teachings and interpretations.  Many are very good, but not all.  There is great value to acknowledge the teachings of Jesus proper interpretation and application of the Torah and every word of God to our lives to this day.]


      46.  They sought to kill him, but they feared the crowds to whom he was a prophet.


      Chapter 22




      1.      Jesus answered and spoke to them again in the words of a parable.


      2.      The Kingdom of heaven is like a king who made a wedding ceremony.


      3.      He sent his servants to those who had been invited to the wedding ceremony, but they did not wish to come.’ He again sent other servants saying: Tell those who are invited, behold I have prepared a feast.  I have killed oxen and fowl, and all is ready.  Come to the wedding ceremony.


      4.      But they scorned and went away, some into the city and some to their businesses.


      5.      Others took his servants, abused them, and killed them.


      6.      The King heard this, was angry, sent those murderers away, and burned their homes with fire.  [Dare we recall the destruction of the Temple and Jerusalem in 70 AD?]


      7.      Then he said to his servants: The marriage ceremony is ready, but those who were invited were unworthy.


      8.      Now go out unto the roads and all whom you find invite to the marriage ceremony.  [This is why the Testimony of Joshua was to go to those of all nations.  Israel first rejected their charge by Elohim to be His witnesses to the nations.  Isreal leadership killed the one who came to restore them to their appointed role, so God has been doing to them for 2000 years exactly what He said He would do to them.  Yet they blame Jesus for the consequence of their sins and rebellion against Elohim?  Is it reasonable to believe Jesus was the greatest false prophet in the history of Israel, and to then blame this dead false prophet, or invented false prophet who never lived - to have such power over the will and works of God Almighty?  Why not take the beam out of your eye - repent and believe what Elohim said is "The Holy Way."]


      9.      His servants went out unto the ways and assembled all those who were found, good and bad, so the marriage ceremony was filled with those who were eating.


      10.  The king entered to see those who were eating and saw there a man who was not clothed in wedding garments.


      11.  He said to him: My friend how did you come in here without wedding garments?  He was silent.


      12.  Then the king said to his servants: Bind his hands and feet and cast him to the nether most and lowest hell; there will be weeping and gnashing of feet.


      13.  Many are called but few are chosen. [If the underlying issue is who was doing the will of God, then the point was being made that anyone who is not “wearing wedding garments” needs to understand what they are.  Revelation has a passage that defines this well.  He wasn’t speaking of just one person here, as the final comment was “many are called, but few are chosen”.  This would be best understood to run parallel with those who are wise VS those who were foolish.  The foolish have no excuse – the wise are not casual with the word of God.]


      14.  Then the Pharisees came and took counsel to take him in speech.


      15.  They sent to him some of their disciples, with violent men from Herod saying: Rabbi, we know that you are faithful, you faithfully study the way of God, you fear nothing, and are impartial.


      16.  Tell us your opinion: Is it right to give tribute to Caesar or not?


      17.  Jesus recognized their deceit and said: Why do you entice me hypocrites?


      18.  Show me a tax coin.  They brought a plain one to him.


      19.  He said to them: Whose form is this and whose impression?


      20.  They said: Caesar’s.  Then Jesus said to them: Return to Caesar that which is Caesar’s and to God that which is God’s.


      21.  They heard and were amazed.  They left him and went away. [There is a difference between what is due God and Government, and Jesus never taught the Law, prophets or psalms were common or done away with.  Jesus held them in high esteem.  Only Paul and his disciples believe the Law was the source of sin and evil conduct and that it was done away with to then put the Government in charge so the Christian just had to obey the Government to be obeying God.  Likewise the image on the money shows it is not of God and currently feigns “In God We Trust” – when the trust is in fiat money created by Jewish bankers.  What belongs to God is complete trust that His words of life are eternally true, just, reliable and are the manner of life we owe to God, who created all things and created man in His own image (man and woman alike.  Note carefully that most of the Covenant Standards relate to how we treat our fellow to be a direct relationship to our true relationship with Elohim).


      22.  On that day, the Sadducces and those who deny the resurrection of the dead met him.  They asked him


      23.  saying: Rabbi, Moses surely said to us: When brothers dwell together and one of them dies and has no son, his brother should take his wife to raise up the seed of his brother.


      24.  Behold there were seven brothers among us.  The first one took a wife, died without seed and his brother married his wife.


      25.  Likewise the second and third unto the seventh.


      26.  After them the woman died.


      27.  Since she had already belonged to all of them, to which of the seven will she be a wife?


      28.  Jesus answered and said to them: You err and do not understand the writings or the power of God.


      29.  In the day of resurrection men will not take women nor women men, but they will be like the angels of God in heaven.


      30.  Have you not read concerning the resurrection of the dead that the Lord spoke to you saying:


      31.  I the Lord am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob?  If so, he is not the God of the dead but the God of the living. [Exodus 3: 6, 15]


      32.  The crowds heard and were amazed at his wisdom. [What is the obvious wisdom but that all are alive to God, even after death.  The curiosity is “in the day of resurrection” and passages that indicate having children in the future kingdom, if the major prophets have not been altered.  Additional study needed.]


      33.  When the Pharisees saw that the Sadducces  [according to modern Judaism, the Sadducces only put trust in the five books of Moses - the "Torah".] had no answer, they joined his servants. [Note this passage, as a later account seems to defy this?]


      34.  Then a sage {Sages later developed into the "Oral Torah" of the Pharisees and Orthodox Judaism, which defies the plain upright Teachings of Elohim in many regards.] asked him tempting him:


      35.  Rabbi, tell us which is the greatest commandment in the Torah.


      36.  He said to him: Thou shalt love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and all your strength.


      37.  This is the first.


      38.  The second is like it: Thou shalt love your neighbor as yourself. [Deut. 6:5; 10:12; 30:6]


      39.  Upon these two commandments the whole law hangs and the prophets. [see the Covenant account in "V".  This is true, but each condition/Commandment gives clarity to define observable love - not an imaginary love taught by Paul in 1st Corinthians 13, which defies and denies the Covenant.  Jesus was teaching the point that the whole of the Covenant is indivisible - he was siting the first commandment and the last of the blessings as the key principle.]


      40.  The Pharisees assembled and Jesus asked them


      41.  saying: What is your opinion concerning the Messiah, whose son will he be?  They said to him: The son of David.


      42.  He said to them: How is it that David by the Holy Spirit called him saying: Lord,


      43.  as it is written: The Lord said to my Lord sit at my right hand until I make your enemies the footstool of your feet.  [[[This is a very important text reference, Psalm 110.  David was giving the only "Oracle of the Lord" in the Psalms.  If David referenced God (Elohim) as the first "Lord", who was the other one spoken of as "my Lord"?  The focus point is exactly where Joshua (Jesus) quoted - that this "Lord" was to sit at "my right hand".  The Christian perspective of this text is correct, as it goes along with the prophecy in Daniel of the one who was "like unto the son of man" that would ascend to the throne on the right hand of "The Power on High" - Elohim/YHWH/The Father in heaven.  This should be seen as a prophecy that Joshua was saying he would ascend to the throne on the right hand of God until God declares "Until I make thine enemies thy foot-stool."  Who are the enemies of Joshua, but Orthodox Judaics who had him crucified by Rome??  See "The Trial of the Ages" link, which proves the hatred and rank biggotry of fallen leadership of Judaism culminated with the murder of Joshua first, then the murder of those who have even altered belief that he was the subject of this verse, as told by God, David, and finally by Joshua.  No where and at no time did Joshua equate himself to be part of a "Trinity", as he said to worship Elohim only.   Orthodox Judaism has been observed by many to be little more than self worship or worship of Rabbi in their "Oral Torah."  One of the most "Orthodox" study editions of Judaism that is translated into English, the Soncino volume on the Psalms, identify this passage in context to Christianity, and also note that this is the only Psalm that is expressly an "Oracle of God."  All the disciples of Joshua testified via Matthew to this.  Which of the other "gospels" address this vital passage reference?]]]


      44.  If David called him Lord, how is he his son?  [It was never said of David that anyone who did not do what he said was to be “cut off”, but it was of those who would not hear “whatever that prophet shall say unto you.”  Even Moses deferred to whatever he would say.]


      45.  They were not able to answer him a word and from then on they feared to ask him anything.


      Chapter 23


      1.      Then Jesus spoke to the people and to his disciples


      2.      saying: Upon the seat of Moses the Pharisees and the sages sit. [A seat at the head of the Synagogues]


      3.      Now all which [he said] to you keep and do; but according to their ordinances and deeds do not do because they say and do not. [Correction to “he said”, based on the textual criticism of Nehemiah Gordon – Jewish scripture authority – video on YouTube that covers this passage particularly – definitely altered in the Hebrew and Greek accounts .]


      4.      They demand and set forth great burdens which the shoulders of men are not able to bear; but they themselves even with their finger are unwilling to move.  ]Who in Judaism will dare to call the children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to set their "Oral Torah" aside and return to Elohim in truth and deed?  Rabbi Singer - dare you reject their lies so you can fully be "True to God" (Elohim Almighty)? Also recall that the "Orthodox Judaism Oral Torah" has hundreds of pages on instructions that deny the heart of the Conditions about  how they keep the Sabbath - defying the simplicity and beauty of what Elohim said.]


      5.      All their actions they do for the sake of appearances, they wear expensive garments and large tassels, called phiblios; [likely added, as Jews would not need to know the Greek word for the tassels?]


      6.      they love to recline first in the banquet halls, to be seated first at the synagogues,


      7.      to prostrate themselves in the streets, and to be called Rabbi.  [These sayings are warnings about those who consider themselves “Rabbi”.  Interesting is that according to one Zionist Jewish Orthodox internet resource the Jews consider themselves historically date to 300 BC, when the Rabbinical tradition started gaining momentum.  Anyone can get a copy of their Scriptures at this time and note that study editions have comments from various Rabbi’s through their history.  Some comments provide insight that is wonderful, but unfortunately others tend towards elevation of Jews over Gentiles to be a matter of race,  not faithfulness to God – a very sad condition.  The greatest blessing I’ve noted is to understand what Jesus taught and view the unaltered Hebrew text to gain greater understanding than to cast it aside and think you understand Jesus fully without study of the words of God, the Prophets, Psalms and Writings and to ALSO note which have been significantly changed in the Jewish record and even more altered in the Christian records of the Jewish Holy Scripture.  Both Jews and Christians have altered Scripture – but only Christians have allowed false reports to be considered the “word of God” just because it was said by a book in the NT – which factually have been altered – who else has told us about this before and pointed to the truth????? (I sincerely thank Rabbi Tovia Singer for pointing out many Scriptural alterations in "Let's Get Biblical", volumes 1 and 2.)]


      8.      But as for you, do not desire to be called Rabbi.  One is your Rabbi and all of you are brothers.  [Jesus did not claim the title Rabbi for himself, but taught as a prophet of God.  Hebrew Scripture says God is our Teacher. Exodus 4:15; Deut. 4:36; Psalm 25:12; 32:8; 71:17; 94:10; Isaiah 2:3; 28:26; 48:17; 54:13; Jeremiah 32:33; Micah 4:2]


      9.      Call no man upon the earth father. One is your father who is in heaven. [In context of title apart from fact – note Scripture and even the Ten Declarations deal with “father” as one of the parents and in genealogies – Jesus was not setting the word of God aside, but saying that “father” was not to be a title among men as Rabbi was not to be used amongst them either.  Note the equality between believers didn’t establish one of the apostles above another – they were to be brethren, as Jesus previously pointed out that those who hear him and do the will of God are his “brothers, sisters and mother” – family – with God as Father, Creator and Teacher – even Redeemer, per the Hebrew accounts.  Isaiah 43 - 47.  As Jesus taught the truth of the Covenant Standards, he brings us to understand and change our manner of life to be in harmony to the Covenant Standards of Elohim, thereby "redeeming" us by bringing us back to proper relationship with the "Father in heaven." (by his wisdom and knowledge, as fortold in Isaiah 42 and 53.]


      10.  Do not be called Rabbi, because one is your Rabbi, the Messiah.  [Noted previously, one coming to teach the Torah as honorable – even to the Gentiles – Isaiah 42; Deut. 18:15.  Note in the Hebrew Matthew when Jesus (Yeshua) was said to be declared “Messiah” or the one who would return when the Father said it was time – figuring of event as the “marriage feast” of tradition in his day.]


      11.  The greatest among you will serve you. [Elders were the invention of Paul, and there is ample proof that Elders often exercise authority to silence truth and justice – Paul was added because without the authority of establishing an eldership at Rome, the entire Papal authority – and its evils – disappears into the thin air of fantasy and fake news.  Only those that believe the truth of God can be set free from the lies of Satan and dreamers and evil men who defy the word of God and count it as unable to do that for which God gave it.]


      12.  He who exalts himself will be humbled; he who is humbled will be exalted.


      13.  Woe to you Pharisees and sages, hypocrites because you close up the kingdom of heaven before men, you yourselves do not enter and those who wish to enter you do not permit to enter. [Reminds me of the Eldership at a Church of Christ in Canton that read “One Disciple To Another – The Original Jesus” and gave a special presentation to “their” congregation to NOT read it.  Even Elders run in fear when they don’t know God and fail to understand what Jesus DID teach.  Two of my own brothers who are preachers asked me not to publish it and have basically “shunned” me ever since – without true cause.  The primary focus of this passage is towards the rabbi, pharisees and scribes who first altered the words of God, then invented stories and rules that require following their teachings to be superior to doing the obvious stated will of Elohim Almighty - placing themselves above God - that they must be followed - whatever they say.  (example is of commanding ritual washing of hands, or taking a couple of sentences from Elohim to then say you have to follow their rules - over 500 pages of instruction to keep the Sabbath according to their rulesTheir greatest perversion is the issue invented near 1200 - the 613 Commandments and the 7 Noahite Laws - both defy the Covenant Standards of Elohim.]


      14.  Woe to you Pharisees and sages, hypocrites, because you devour and divide the wealth of certain widows with lengthy exposition; for this you will suffer a long punishment.


      15.  You encompass sea and land to bind the heart of the one man to your faith and when he is bound he is doubly worse than before. [This is proven true in "The Trial of the Ages", as their charges against Jesus have multiplied beyond what he was accused of then  - and they are judging against Jesus the fact that Elohim is doing to them exactly what He had told them He would do!   And they ascribe this to a dead prophet?  the greatest false prophet in the history of Israel?!!!  Seems to me more likely that given the evidence of what they believe about others and Jesus only proves Elohim, Moses, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and the other prophets are true - and that Jesus (Joshua) is and was a true prophet - indeed "that prophet" foretold throughout the Hebrew Scriptures - in spite of Christian and Jewish alterations of what was originally given us by Elohim and the prophets proven true by His commandments o the subject of who we are to listen to, and who we are to ignore. (Deuteronomy 4, 12, 13, 18 and 34).]]


      16.  Woe to you, council of the blind, who say that he who swears by the temple is not obligated, but he who vows by anything which is consecrated to the structure of the temple is obligated to pay,


      17.  – mad and blind men, which is greater, the temple or that which is consecrated to the temple? –


      18.  and whoever swears by the altar is not obligated but he who sweaers that he will make an offering is obligated to give it.


      19.  Woe blind men, which is more, the gift or the altar, the temple or the gift?


      20.  He who swears by the altar swears by it and by everything which is on it.


      21.  Missing in the HGOM.  AENT: And whoever swears by the temple swears by it and He who dwells in it.


      22.  He who swears by the throne of God swears by it and by the one  who sits upon it.


      23.  Woe to them, the sages and Pharisees, who tithe mint, dill and pomegranate, but who commit robbery and leave undone that which is weightier, that is, the judgments of the Torah which are: kindness, truth and faithfulness.  These are commands worthy of doing, one should not forget them. [Note how this teaching defies Paul’s criticism of the “Law” that Paul alone claimed to be set aside by the cross and death of Jesus – when Jesus said every letter  of the Covenant Standards continue to matter.  Paul had NOTHING in Jesus or God or any Apostle of Jesus – his was a gospel NOT of God.] [[See “Not Paul, but Jesus” by Jeremy Bentham and note his conclusions about Paul in the 1800’s.]] [[[***Commandments of YHWH are categorized as Judgments, Testimonies and Statutes.  The Judgments are the moral or ethical commandments that differentiate right from wrong.  Mercy: Hosea 6:6; Faith Genesis 15:6 and 23:5 – would best be translated as “Faithfulness” than “Faith”, per the Habakuk pasher in the DSS. *** is overview of AENT comments, but the text is from an altered version – pre 160 CE.  The Hebrew is kindness, truth and faithfulness – much clearer and devoid of alteration.]]]


      24.  Offspring of blind leaders, who are strict in the manner of the gnat and swallow the camel.


      25.  Woe to you Pharisees and sages because you cleanse cups and platters on the outside but inside them is full of wickedness and uncleanness. [This is most clearly known by what their oral torah says about "the law of the tent" and "the law of the twig" and teachings on keeping the Sabbath.  To dishonor humans to be no more  than an animal defies the fact that mankind is God-given creation in His image.  In this they defy Elohim and the rest of mankind - as they then pull a rotten fish across our trail to pretend those who believe God are "anti-Semites"!  Read between the lines and this is also what they accuse Jesus of!]]


      26.  Hypocrite, cleanse first that which is inside in order that that which is outside might be pure.


      27.  Woe to you sages and Pharisees, hypocrites, who are like whitened sepulchers which appear on the outside to be beautiful to men, but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and the filthy.


      28.  Thus you appear on the outside to be righteous to men, but within you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.


      29.  Woe to you, hypocrites, Pharisees, and sages because you build the tombs of the prophets and glorify the monuments of the righteous.


      30.  You say: If we had been in the days of our fathers we would not have permitted them to put the prophets to death.


      31.  In this you bear witness against yourselves that you are sons of those who killed the prophets.


      32.  You behave according to the deeds of your fathers. [Look at works – who is upholding the word of God as totally reliable and good for life and His kindness towards those who observe and do as He Instructed and Decreed.]


      33.  Serpents, seed of vipers, how will you escape the judgment of Gehenna if you do not turn in repentance?


      34.  At that time Jesus said to the crowds of Jews: Therefore, behold I am sending to you prophets, sages, and scribes.  Some of them you will kill, some of them you will afflict in your synagogues and you will pursue them from city to city,  [This work may well be considered a work of a scribe who provides evidence that the Holy Scriptures have been altered and there is great need to repent to the Truth of God as given from the beginning – to live by every word of God and whatever “that prophet” said to believe and do.  Note Isaiah 42 “restore” and the other prophet writing about those who returned to seek God in truth and restore what Elohim says is the difference between good and evil.]


      35.  in order to place upon you the blood of every righteous one which has been poured out upon the earth, from the blood of Abel the righteous unto the blood of Zechariah the Son of Barachiah whom you killed between the temple and the altar.


      36.  Truly I say to you that all these things will come upon this generation,


      37.  and upon Jerusalem who kills the prophets and removes those who are sent.  How many times I wished to gather your children as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings and you would not.


      38.  Therefore you will leave your houses desolate. [Jeremiah 22:5]


      39. Truly I say to you, you will not see me henceforth until you will say: Blessed is our savior. [Psalm 118:26] {resources available to do a word search for “savior” in the Bible – double check all the references – God had repeatedly raised up men who were to be a savior – the primary singular foretold is of “that prophet” in Deut. 18:15]  [AENT: “Blessed is he who comes in the name of Master YHWH.”  Once again, refer to Psalm 118, as in 21:9 and the procession with branches, this Psalm shows a distinction in the DSSB at verse 29 to not just be a generic “he” who comes in the NAME of the LORD, but “Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the LORD.”  This Psalm declares God is God, and also expresses the light He gives.  Jesus had been enlightening the pathway to God and doing as He had instructed, directing to live by every word of God, as no other prophet in Jewish history.  ”Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the LORD.  We bless you by your name from the house of the LORD.  The LORD is God, and he has given us light.  The cords of the festal procession are with branches up to the horn of the altar.  You are my God, and I will give thanks to you, you are my God, I will exalt you. O give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!”  Psalms 22 and 118 speak directly to what Jesus  knew he was about to endure, and his quoting smidgens of them before hand begs that we read them well and stop imagining otherwise.  6 – 12; The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid.  What can mortals do to me?  The LORD is on my side among those who help me; I will look in triumph on those who hate me.  It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in humans.  It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.  All nations surround me; in the name of the LORD I cut them off.  They surround me like bees, but they burned out like a fire of thorns, for in the name of the LORD I cut them off! "  [As “that prophet” – this totally fits]   16 “The right hand of the LORD is lifted high.  I will not die, but  live, and I will recount the deeds of the LORD.  The LORD has punished me severely, but he has not given me over to death.  Open for me the gates of righteousness that I may enter them and give thanks to the LORD.  This is the gate of the LORD, through which the righteous will enter.  23: “This is the LORD’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.  This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.  Please save us now, O LORD! O LORD, please give us now success!  Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the LORD.  We bless you by your name from the house of the LORD.  The LORD (Elohim) is God, and he has given us light.  The cords of the festal procession are with branches up to the horns of the altar.  You are my God, and I will give thanks to you; you are my God, I will exalt you.  O give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!”]]  {{{Jesus never claimed to be God, but clearly said that only God is good."  [The Trinity Doctrine has no support in the Torah, Psalms, Prophets, Writings or the Hebrew Gospel of Matthew.  As Catholic scholars have said – it is a Papal decree and has no basis in Scripture and must be “accepted by faith” in the Pope and Roman Catholic Church authority.]

      Chapter 24




      1.      It came to pass when Jesus went out from the temple, as he was going, his disciples drew near to show him the buildings of the temple.


      2.      He said: You see all these: truly I say to you that all will be destroyed and there will not be left there one stone upon another.  [The matter of the destruction of the Temple was reported to have been spoken to Solomon by Elohim upon completion of the Temple, in 1 Kings, 9: 1-9, and in light of what is going on with corrupted Israeli Zionism today, it is vital to know, because God is the same today as He was then; Stone Edition, Hebrew to English:  '"It happened when Solomon had finished building the Temple of Elohim and the king's palace, and every luxury of Solomon that he had wished to make: Elohim appeared to Solomon a second time, as He had appeared to him at Gibeon.  Elohim said to him, "I have heard your prayer and supplication that you supplicated before Me.  I have sanctified this Temple that you have built, to place My Name there forever, and My eyes and My heart shall be there all the days.   And as for you - if you walk before Me as your father David walked, with wholeheartedness and with uprightness, to do in accordance with all that I have commanded you, and you will observe My decrees and My statutes, then I shall uphold the throne of your kingdom over Israel forever, as I spoke about your father David, saying, 'No man of your will be cut off from upon the throne of Israel.'  But if you and your children turn away from Me and will not observe My commandments, My decrees that I have placed before you, and you go and worship the gods of others and prostrate yourselves to them, then I shall cut off Israel from upon the face of the land that I gave them, and the Temple that I have sanctified for My Name I shall dismiss from My presence, and Israel shall become a parable and a conversation piece among all the nations.  And this Temple, which will be so exalted - all who pass by it will be appalled and will whistle, and they will say, "Why did Elohim do such a thing to this land and to this Temple?  And they will say, "Because they forsook Elohim, their God, Who brought their forefathers out of the land of Egypt, and they grasped the gods of others, and protrated themselves to them and worshipped them; therefore Elohim brought all this evil upon them."'] [[It is a great evil to alter the Covenant Standards.  It is a great evil to add to the Standards given by Elohim, or to take away from them - which is obvious today in Judaism.  Mishna and Talmud/Oral Torahs.  The greatest evil is Kaballah - doing magic and summoning the powers of demons - which they claim traces back to Solomon.  They have long ago abandoned Elohim, as can be seen in the Zionist Israel evils done to everyone in Gaza today, who include Jews, Christians, and Muslims.  Modern Zionist Israel is far more evil than Adolf Hitler.]]


      3.      As he sat on the Mount of olives opposite the temple, Peter, John and Andrew asked him secretly: When will be all these things be [destruction of the Temple], and what will be the sign when all these matters will take place [to know when the Temple is about to be destroyed], or [and] when will they begin [signs to look for to know the "time" of the "end"] and when will be the end of the world and your coming? [This chapter is very important to understand, as most take Luke 21 and Matthew 24 and whip them up into doctrines that are often not in accord with reason, the words of the true Prophets, or the prophesies and teachings of Joshua in Matthew.  I'm a little suspicious of this verse as between the main thoughts "or" is inserted, when the two halves do not seem to be a good reflection of what they asked to start with.  I tend to view this question as a logical extension of what Jesus had said - and that the "or" might better be "and".]


      4.      Jesus answered them: beware lest anyone should lead you astray, [Pay attention to what he is telling them, as well as about unfulfilled prophecy in the OT that he said had to be fulfilled before hand.  Look at Joel 2 and 3 - 'after those days' there would be another dispersion of Israel - took place after the Temple was destroyed.  Note the 1 Kings words of God, given just above this.  Also note the prophecy in Jeremiah 16 about people having inherited lies - all the Hebrew Scripture accounts, and all the Christian Scripture accounts - BOTH have been altered!!!  Who has dared to tell this to you?!  Not your preachers or the Pope, or the Pharisees of Orthodox Judaism?  Let God be true - so we are the ones who need to repent to observe and do His will as taught by the greatest Prophet in the history of Israel!  Base your foundation of the gospel on the teachings of Jesus in Matthew.  As the Temptations teaching tells, don't use scripture in a way that opposes itself.  When properly understood and applied, it will make good sense and not be in opposition to the words of God.]


      5.      because many will come in my name saying I am messiah, and they will lead you astray.  [Paul, Hebrews and John?]


      6.      As for you, when you hear of wars and a company of hosts, beware lest you become foolish, because all of this will occur, but the end will not be yet. [Speaking to the disciples about 30 AD]


      7.      Nation will rise up against nation and kingdom against kingdom, there will be great tumults, grievous famine, and earthquake in various places.


      8.      All of these are the beginning of suffering.  [Under Roman rule the early disciples suffered.]


      9.      Then they will bind you over for tribulation and will kill you, and you will become a reproach to all the nations for my name.  [Roman rule, also as extended through the Roman Church and the Church of England, have greatly corrupted our records and have greatly persecuted those desiring to hear and obey Elohim and Jesus.  These things are expanding today, so much that in some places it is a crime to point out the evils of Zionist Israel.  Check out  or or "The Talmud Tested".]  [[Note how the KJV has been promoted by Christian leaders  -  when the book was sponsored by a demon worshiping king, whose first pubication was "Demonology" -  the poor deluded souls should be asking their Pastors and Church Councils why no one ever pointed this out to them before!]]


      10.  Then many will be perturbed, deal treacherously with each other, and be enraged among themselves.              [ Maybe history is repeating itself?  Look at the blind loyalty Evangelical Christians have towards Israel, when they have openly said it is a crime to try to convert a Jew in Israel, and believe God will not forgive them until they destroy Christianity from the face of the earth!  To them, Jesus was the most evil false prophet in the history of Israel - and all based on false charges - simply for teaching against the rules of the Rabbi.]


      11.  False prophets will arise and lead many astray.  [And false books put in the NT by Rome]


      12.  When wickedness multiplies, the love of many will grow faint.  [Love is a verb, not a feeling.  Love for Elohim, and love for our fellow human if they will accept our peace towards them.  Continue to pray for those who persecute or oppress you because you actually believe the Teachings of Jesus are from Elohim.]


      13.  Whoever waits [endures] until the end will be saved.  [Note well the passage sited about God saving some as a man would his own son that serves him.  Malichi 3:17]  


      14.  And this gospel, will be preached in all the earth for a witness concerning me to all the nations and then the end will come. [This internet page is going out to the whole earth.  China took over my web domain in China - in spite of my protest - but I'm not aware if they have done anything with it, but to perhaps ban it?  The fact is the truths expressed herein have gone out to the world.  A web crawler called "MJ-12" has been web crawling my site for over a decade.]


      15.  This is the Anti-Christ and this is the abomination which desolates which was spoken of by Daniel as standing in the holy place.  The the one who reads understand. [per AENT: Daniel 9:27; 11:31; 12:11]


      16.  Then those who are in Juda, let them flee to the mountains. [Obviously speaking about the Temple destruction and getting out of town safely - which did happen.]


      17.  He who is upon the house, let him not come down to take anything out of his house.


      18.  He who is in the field, let him not turn back to take his garment.


      19.  Woe to those who are pregnant and to those who nurse children in those days.


      20.  Pray to God that your flight will not be on the Sabbath day.


      21.  Because then there will be great distress which has not been from the creation of the world unto now and as will not be. [Joel 2:2; Daniel 12:1]


      22.  Except those days were few, no flesh would be saved; for for the sake of the chosen those days will be few.        [Those left at Massada were reported to have been eating their children]


      23.  At that time, if one should say to you: Behold the Messiah is here or there do not believe it.


      24.  Because false messiahs and false prophets will arise and they will give signs and great wonders so that if it can be they will come to lead the chosen astray.  [Dare we mention Paul, or any number of false Messiah's.  Recently a book was written about 50 failed Messiah's since Jesus.  I noted how their beliefs have been morphing to expectations of being an expert in Kaballah, not the Covenant of Elohim - they have completely forsaken their Master's trough - as He said long ago.  We should all realize the Kingdom of God is not a Democracy - yet the Rabbi think themselves so great as to be the supreme authority  who will vote him in?!]


      25.  [verses 25 and 26 are reversed in the HGOM – another direct alteration of our texts]  Then if they should say to you: Behold he is in the wilderness, do not go out, and: Behold he is in the chambers, do not believe it. {note the testimony about Paul’s meeting Jesus on the Damascus Road in Acts – the accounts vary widely (against themselves), and he claims to have seen Jesus in the wilderness – and where was he when receiving his visions that the gospel is a mystery of faith alone?  Also note a cave is like a chamber – where did the founder of Islam receive his revelation? In a cave?]


      26.  Behold I tell you before it happens.


      27.  Again Jesus said to his disciples: As the lightning [lightning is a flash that goes in all directions, because of this, it may be incorrect?  as daylight comes from the east and goes to the west?] comes from the east and is seen in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.


      28.  Wherever the body is, there will be gathered the vultures. [not eagles] [Hosea 8; Jeremiah 4: 7-13; Ezekiel 1:10; 10:14.]


      29.  At that time, after the tribulation of those days, the sun will grow dark, the moon will not give forth its light, the stars will fall from heaven, and the host of heaven will be shaken. [Isaiah 34:4; Haggi 2:6, 21]


      30.  Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven and all the families of the earth will weep and [mourn? Zechariah 12: 10, 14] will see the Son of Man on the clouds of heaven  [ Daniel 7: 13,14] with a great host and with dreadful appearance [AENT great power and glory; Danial 7: 13,14] .


      31.  He will send his angels with a trumpet and with a great shout to gather his chosen from the four winds of heaven, from one end of heaven unto the other. [Isaiah 7:13?] [Deuteronomy 30:4; Jeremiah 31:7 - 12; Zechariah 2:6; 10: 7 - 12]


      32.  From the fig tree learn the parable; when you see its branches and leaves sprouting know that he is near [AENT notes the parable of the fig tree has to do with the false judges of Israel, and as we should easily see, they falsely convicted Jesus to death for daring to tell the truth of God, some in Orthodox Judaism hate him even more today, and falsely ascribe the lies of Paul to Jesus.   It is not possible that the "oral torah" is superior in wisdom and knowledge of God than Jesus was.  Read Matthew in context - the Covenant and the Prophets warnings - Matthew makes more sense of God and the Prophets in 28 chapters than all the writings of the "Sages of the Ages", such as Hillel and those who followed after him.  They would have been better off to first understand what Jesus taught - to compair his teachings to the Covenant and Testimony of God, as if they did, the real truth is that Jesus is who he claimed to be, and Elohim was working wonders through him as a testimony to the Jews, as the works done by God through Jesus were even greater than those done by Moses, or any other prophet in the history of Israel.  "know that the end is near" certainly had to do with the destrouctio of Jerusalem and the Temple and the next diaspora mentioned in Joel 3 as "after those days", when Peter preached at Pentecost in Jerusalem.]


      33.  to the gates.


      34.  Truly I say to you: this generation will not pass away until all these things shall be done. [The destruction of the Temple and the re rescattering of Israel out of the Land to the nations of the earth.]


      35.  Heaven and earth will pass away,  [Another important distinction here is the absense of the "but my word shall not pass away" as found in other gospel account.  As we have seen in the "V" document, the Covenant Standards as given by Elohim were most certainly lost from about the time of Ezekiel, and were recently retold as they were from the days of Ezekiel.  This also gives much evidence that Ezekiel was also altered to put the Temple prophecy at the end, when it was given near the beginning - if one just dares to put the contents of the prophet chronologically!  If the teachings of Jesus were so sure as to be preserved to us because by no means could they be altered or pass away - the common viewpoint is shown to be extremely lacking in reality.  If, however, the phrase simply meens that what was taught is forever secure in heaven, as  it was based totally on what God really said, and the Jews of his day were altering things to pretend they were equal or superior to what Elohim had already told mankind via Moses and other true prophets - the matter is that the Truth of Elohim is not subject to change - by no means, or by no pretended authority, could the Standards given by Elohim be altered.  An example is that when the Serpent caused man (Adam and Eve) to doubt what Elohim had told them - they paid the consequence of disbelieving God, and the one who had deceived mankind was cursed by God.  Thus it has been so from the beginning, and Elohim told us so via the story of Adam and Eve.  How can those who seek Elohim by what He said are His pathway, then turn to defy what He gave as the Standards we are to live by, that we accept His Teachings, goodness, righteousness, and true justice?  How can anyone think Elohim to hate or love anyone is solely based on race, when He created all mankind in His image?  The trouble has been we have been following men, rather than God, and pretending the old lies are true.  Return to Elohim and He will return to you.  Love God, love others as yourself.  Love is a verb.  Thankfully Elohim does search the hearts of men.  Thankfully He tells of His mercy and calls us to like standards.]


      36.  but of that day or that time there is none who knows, not even the angels of heaven, but the Father only.


      37.  Again Jesus said to his disciples: As in the days of Noah so will it be in the days of the Son of Man.


      38.  Just as before the flood, they were eating, drinking, being fruitful, and multiplying until the day when Noah entered the ark.


      39.  They did not know until the flood came upon them and destroyed them; so will be the coming of the Son of Man.


      40.  Then if there shall be two ploughing in a field, one righteous and the other evil, the one will be taken and the other left.


      41.  Two women will be grinding at a mill; one will be taken and the other left.  This is because the angels [mesangers] at the end of the world will remove the stumbling blocks from the world and will separate the good from the evil. [Don't conflate or confuse removal of stumbling blocks to removal of the wicked?  We need to make sure we know good from evil - who is blessed, from who is cursed.  See  "The Blessings and the Curses; see the major prophets charges against unfaithful Isreal - be aware and know that God said part of this process is to know who serves Him from those who say they do, but do not.] [Carefully note from "The Valediction of Moses" that the common Orthodox beliefs in the first of the commandments was altered.  See the Curses per what God said is cursed so you know the truth of God about who He blesses, and who He cursed.  Not everything is as we have been told for 3000 years - let alone nearly 70 years of my lifetime - this is a huge evil posed upon mankind by the wicked priests and scribes and what developed into the Pharisees of Orthodox Judaism since they rejected the Teaching of Elohim as given by Joshua in their own account of record from Shem Tob.  His willingness to insert and delete what was before him as he made his copy should be very obvious to the one who is careful to note facts and details and reconsider what support the Teachings have from the most ancient record of the words given by God and His true prophets....]


      42.  Then Jesus said to his disciples: Therefore watch with me because you do not know at what hour your lord is coming.


      43.  This you know, if one knew what hour the thief was coming, he would watch and not allow him to dig into his house.  [Here we have a "lord" as oppossed to the "thief", who was surely Rome in partnership with promoting the fake apostle Paul after he was rejected by everyone but Luke. (see 2 Timothy 4:19).] [And as it has been for 3000 years, faithful children of Abraham, versus those who defy God and keep His people from understanding His ways and covenant.]


      44.  So you should be prepared, because you do not know at what hour the Son of Man is going to come. [As told repeatedly from the beginning of the Covenant at Sinai, how we live our lives, including most certainly to be living what Elohim said is just and right in the sight of God and our fellow humans of good will.  We must also acrealize who are evil - by the same Standard given by Elohim, as a prophet had noted before, one passage notes, the evil and wicked are only capable to stir up mire and dirt.]


      45.  What do you think of the faithful and wise servant whose lord places him over his children to give them food in its time?


      46.  Blessed is that servant whose lord finds him doing this when he comes.


      47.  Truly I say to you that he will place him over his children.


      48.  But if that servant should be evil and should say in his heart: My lord is late in coming,


      49.  and should begin to beat the servant of his lord and should eat and drink with gluttons,


      50.  his lord will come in a day for which he does not wait and a time which he does not know.


      51.  He will divide him and place his portion with the hypocrites, there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 


      Chapter 25


      1.      Again Jesus said to his disciples: The kingdom of heaven is like ten virgins who took their lamps and went forth to meet a bridegroom and a bride.


      2.      Five of them were lazy fools and five of them were alert and wise.


      3.      The five foolish brought their lamps, but they brought no oil with them.


      4.      The wise brought oil in their vessels with their lamps. [Recall the Teachings about being a light to the world, as well as the words of God to be a guide and light unto our pathway in life.  The foolish and the wise has to do with the difference between serving God by observing His Covenant to do it - versus - those who don't even know what they do is evil, because they were not careful to observe what God said.]


      5.      The bridegroom was late and behold all of them lingered and slept.


      6.      It came to pass at midnight that behold a voice was heard: Behold the bridegroom is coming, come to meet him.


      7.      Then all those virgins came and trimmed their lamps.


      8.      The foolish virgins said to the wise: Give us some of your oil because our lamps have gone out. [They were not being the light of God to the world that God and Jesus had instructed them to be – they were not living on the pathway of life as God had taught and commanded, so they might be a light to all men of the reliability of the Instruction, Justice and Kindness of God being reflected in their lives to others.]


      9.      The wise answered saying: Go now to those who sell and buy for yourselves because there is not enough oil for us and you.  We fear that it will be lacking for us. [Righteousness is not imputed to the evil.  God will not hold the righteous as guilty for those who are evil, just as He said the righteous who turn to do evil will not be accounted the righteousness of their previous state of life.  God will not help those who have defied Him, or those that follow those that defy Him.  The Covenant is conditional, which is why God repeatedly judged Isreal in her unfaithfulness.  Did God also judge the Serpent in Eden for deceiving mankind?  We are responsible for who we believe and trust in, so do some research to know who you should trust to be speaking truth from God, and if you have not investigated who you have been listening to - your life and destiny are hanging by the thread of your last breath.]


      10.  It came to pass when they went to buy, the bridegroom came; those who were ready went with him into the marriage ceremony and the gate was closed.


      11.  Afterwards, the foolish came and called at the gate saying: Our lord, open for us.


      12.  He answered them: Truly I say to you, I do not know who you are.  [It should be obvious to consider his sayings of “I do not know you” as being related directly to the words of Elohim and the Covenant Standards (Law).]


      13.  Be careful, therefore, because you do not know the day nor the hour when the bridegroom will come.


      14.  Again Jesus told his disciples another example: The kingdom of heaven is like a man going on a far journey; he called his servants and dispersed to them his money.


      15.  To one he gave five coins of gold, to the second he gave two coins of gold and to the third one, to each according to what was suitable for him he gave.  Then he went on his journey.


      16.  The one who received five coins of gold went and gained five others.


      17.  Likewise the one who received two went, bought, sold, and gained five (Two?)others. [Minor alteration or mistranslation - see below, see the standard Matthew - the one with two then gained two.  No reason to support that two gained five?]


      18.  But he who received the one went, dug in the earth, and hid the money of his lord.


      19.  After many days the lord of those servants came and sought from them an accounting of the money.
