The Du Tillet Matthew: is it the correct one?

The previous study, where I first brought up about the du Tillet Hebrew Matthew/Mattityahu, included information that looked at the possibility of our present Gospel of Matthew being from a scroll written with errors in it. See link to previous study below:

Matthew 1: The answer to the question is 42 not 41!

I did a search on the du Tillet and found a couple of sites that had researched and presented their information on that manuscript, links will be included below. One site also had available in pdf an old book written and published about the du Tillet including translation in English called, “An Old Hebrew Text of St. Matthew’s Gospel” by Hugh Schonfield 1927. Link and quote from the book are below.

http://www.torahresource.com/DuTillet/Schonfield.pdf

“When we turn to the New Testament we find that there are reasons for suspecting a Hebrew or Aramaic original for the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and John, and for the Apocalypse.”, from Preface page vii. On the next page, Schonfield goes into information that states he believes the canonical Gospel to be an abridged edition of a larger original work with even more information then we have today of CHRIST and HIS saying and of which only fragments have survived. He further states that he believes the Judaean Christians were going to use it as the last book of the Old Testament canon. It has been referred to by the names “The Gospel”, “The Gospel of the Lord”, “The Gospel of the Twelve, or, of the Apostles”, “The Gospel of the Hebrews”, and “The Hebrew Matthew”. He believed the original to be in Hebrew and possibly Aramaic and that the Greek renderings were from it and could be proven as such. When I was in Israel I met a scholar who stated that he believed the Greek to be secondary to the Aramaic. I found out there is an Aramaic vs Greek primacy dispute between Eastern and Western scholars in regards to the original New Testament manuscripts.

In “Caesar and Christ” by Will Durant, on page 616 is this paragraph which backs up what Schonfield said above:

“The literature of Christianity in the second century abounded in gospels epistles, apocalypses, and “acts.” Christians differed widely in accepting or rejecting these as authoritative expressions of the Christian creed. The Western churches accepted the Book of Revelation, the Eastern churches generally rejected it; these accepted the Gospel according to the Hebrews and the Epistles of James, the Western churches discarded them. Clement of Alexandria quotes as sacred scripture a late first-century treatise, The Teaching of the Twelve Apostles. Marcion’s publication of a New Testament forced the hand of the Church. We do not know when the books of our present New Testament were determined as canonical-i.e., as authentic and inspired;; we can only say that a Latin fragment discovered by Muratori in 1740, named after him, and generally assigned to ca.180, assumes that the canon had by that time been fixed.”

On page 556 Durant says, “Orthodox tradition placed Matthew’s Gospel first. Irenaeus describes it as originally composed in “Hebrew”-i.e., Aramaic; but it has come down to us only in Greek.” This agrees with what is stated in the preface of the “Holy Bible: Ancient Eastern Text” by George Lamsa:

With reference to….the originality of the Peshitta text, as the Patriarch and Head of the Holy Apostolic and Catholic Church of the East, we wish to state, that the Church of the East received the scriptures from the hands of the blessed Apostles themselves in the Aramaic original, the language spoken by our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and that the Peshitta is the text of the Church of the East which has come down from the Biblical times without any change or revision.”

GOD sends out HIS Wrath to ease HIS displeasure!

ISR – Ezekiel/Yechezk’El 5:13 ‘And My displeasureH639 shall be completed. And I shall bring My wrath H2534to rest upon them, and I shall be eased. And they shall know that I, יהוה, have spoken it in My ardour, when I have completed My wrath upon them.

KJV – Ezekiel/Yechezk’El 5:13 Thus shall mine anger H639 be accomplished, and I will cause my furyH2534 to rest upon them, and I will be comforted: and they shall know that I the LORD have spoken it in my zeal, when I have accomplished my fury in them.

The verse above was stunning to me when I first found it. I realized that GOD/ELOHIM [FATHER/SON/HOLY SPIRIT] has to do this! HE sends HIS Wrath out to EASE HIS displeasure so HE can be comforted! That is HUGE!!! All the Biblical signs around us of HIS judgement per Scripture: storms, fires, floods, famine, pestilence, plague, volcanoes, earthquakes, etc are all HIM easing HIS displeasure, not mother nature which is just another name for spiritual wickedness/the harlot! While there are different factors that men influence in regards to the climate, GOD/ELOHIM is in complete control! AMEN!!! We are somewhere in the time of the end and per Scripture, things are going to be getting worse!

GOD/ELOHIM has to take care of HIMSELF, too!  May HE do what HE needs to do because without HIM we are nothing!!! We can ask HIM to change HIS mind or for a lesser event, for mercy and compassion, and see what HE decides to do! HE needs much praise, and thanks, and blessing these days for whatever HE decides to do or not do! Remember, HE knows the whole picture, HE knows what is best! Remember too these are like the days of Noah again, when GOD/ELOHIM wanted to destroy HIS whole creation and HE did not because of one man and his family, praise ELOHIM’S NAME even all HIS NAMES!!! AMEN!!!

Who is the bright and morning star of Revelation 22:16?

Revelation 22:16  “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify to you about these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.”

Daniel [Dani’el] 12:3And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky above; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.

Based on examining what looks to be all verses concerning “morning stars”, I believe that it is mainly a special designation for a “bright” person who “shines” and “sparkles like a star” turning others to righteousness, and also is used for certain angels/messengers/hosts. I also believe that King David is the “bright and morning star” referred to in Revelation 22:16, not JESUS/YESHUA. Please examine the Scriptures below and the comments with them. Continue reading

May you find yourself asking questions and seeking the answers through prayer, asking ELOHIM for ONLY the Truth, and Biblical study/research! ELOHIM is the Hebrew word for GOD and who I believe is our ABBA [FATHER] in Heaven, HIS SON [YAHSHUA/JESUS/JOSHUA], and HIS [SET-APART] HOLY SPIRIT/RUACH HA’KODESH.

It is important to go to our ABBA in Heaven for everything through HIS SON, the MESSIAH [CHRIST] and only INTERCESSOR, and not go by our own understanding [Mattityahu/Matthew 6:9, 1 Yochanan /1 John 2:1, Mishlei/Proverbs 3:5-7]. I have been seeking ELOHIM’S FACE [wanting HIM and to know how HE is doing] and am going back to the roots of Scripture to gain a deeper understanding from the original languages and root words. Jeffery Benner who created the Ancient Hebrew Research Center looks into parent roots of words, the original root of where a word comes from. I have used this and found it to be enlightening, getting into a deeper understanding of a word and a truer one too. I also have been researching by looking at every Scripture a word is in to make sure a theory bears out. Everything in Scripture, both Old and New Testament, need to fit together. It is a puzzle that reveals hidden things. If it does not work, that indicates a problem of either a translation/transliteration error or could even mean that something does not belong. More about that later.

In order to walk the MESSIAH’S WAY:
1. Learn how to obey [if you love ME you will obey/keep MY commands] and follow our SHEPHERD and prepare for our coming KING how HE would love!
2. Go by HIS ABBA’S/FATHER’S Will and not your own!
3. Learn how to be taught and comforted by the HOLY SPIRIT!

Having given my life to our FATHER in Heaven to do YAHSHUA’S work, I hope to be going wherever my SHEPHERD wants me to follow HIM and doing whatever our FATHER in Heaven lines up for me and prepares through the HOLY SPIRIT! [John/Yochanan 10:11 and Tehillim/Psalm 23].

Craig Hill – The Father’s Blessing

This teaching is a big blessing. Have you heard of Craig Hill and the Father’s Blessing? He speaks of how the Jewish people are only a very small percentage of the American population, yet they hold many top positions in banking, teaching, and other fields. He said it is due to their culture of blessing their children and families and not cursing them like many do in America.

Do you really believe ELOHIM winks?

This has bothered me for some time and am finally getting it written up. The more one studies and compares words and their meanings in Hebrew/Aramaic to supposedly the same words/meanings in Greek and English, a pattern shows of not as much agreement as one would think. Please examine the word “winks” in the verses below from the Old and New Testaments [Covenants] and their root origins. In the Old Testament and in the English dictionary, you will see that “wink” is typically used to indicate something that is not right. A better word choice should be used by some translations to refer to the act of compassion by ELOHIM in Acts 17:30 in the New Testament, especially since most translations choose the better word “overlooked”. ELOHIM is the Hebrew word for GOD and who I believe is FATHER/SON/HOLY SPIRIT. Because of this verse in certain translations, we hear people saying “GOD winks”. We really should exam whether to use it in reference to HIM at all!  Continue reading

Song and info – YOUR EYES of Flame!!!

Many people are believing in visions and dreams where someone has said they have seen JESUS. The problem is that the physical description many give does not match to the Bible. When HE returns as our KING, HIS EYES will look like how John described them in Revelation 1:14, like flames of fire. This and the rest of HIS description in that passage match that of the MAN Daniel fell down in front of in Daniel 10:6 and other verses. This description is how HE looks as the WORD of ELOHIM [Hebrew word for GOD]. Do not get misled by deceiving signs and wonders! Compare everything to Scripture because only the Truth sets us free from the enemy!! Continue reading
