Commentary on Bible Prefaces

Before we begin it must be understood that our English bibles are not the original language in which scriptures were written. I sometimes talk to people who don’t understand this very basic principle, but it is totally true. The King James Version was the first major translation into English and was created approximately 1600 years […]

Why do we have “The LORD” in our Bibles rather than Yahweh?

This is a very common question. It all began with a Jewish tradition called the “ineffable name” doctrine. Jews, for various reasons, started to substitute His name with the Hebrew title “Adonai”. Adonai is the Hebrew word for “Lord”.

The Ineffable Name Doctrine and Christianity

The “ineffable name” doctrine appears as early as the 150 AD/CE in the works of Justin Martyr, a Samaritan convert to Christianity.

Did the Messiah say the Heavenly Father’s Name?

There are some who believe that the Messiah only referred to Yahweh as “The Father” or believe that Yahushua also followed the doctrine that states Yahweh’s name is too holy to pronounce. But this was one of many false teachings coming out of that era. Yahushua flatly condemned those who would rather do things according […]

Paul never said the Law was Abolished. Read for yourself.

The following is a collection of clear scriptures showing that Paul never taught that we are free to disobey the Law (Hebrew: Torah). I only ask that everyone read all of this study (please do not skim thru) before coming to a conclusion. First off, it’s obvious that Paul himself believed in keeping the Law: […]

Warning on Paul’s Writings

2Pet 3:15 (KJV) And account [that] the longsuffering of our Master [is] salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; This is the truth that Paul was writing. Our Master Yahushua is salvation. Not the law. 2Pet 3:16 (KJV) As also in all [his] […]
