The New Testament Tradition, During the first phase (c. 90 CE-96 CE)Christian church discovered that Christ had not yet returned as predicted, but the generation of the apostles and those who had directly encountered Christ was rapidly dying out. Originally, knowledge of Christ had been transmitted orally. At this point, the church fathers wrote down the early Gospels and preserved the Pauline letters as ways to give pastoral guidance to new churches.where was the school at?The Gospel of Mark was written first. Scholars date it most commonly to circa 70 CE--the year year Titus and his Roman armies destroyed Jerusalem. Mark is generally (though not universally) thought to be the oldest of the Gospels, with the others appearing in later decades after the year 70 CE, about sixty to a hundred years after Jesus' crucifixion.It was at Jamnia in the famous school of Johanan ben Zakkai that the council met about A.D. 90 to decide which books belonged to the canon. Pointing, no doubt, to the actual rolls brought from the Temple, the scribes and learned men of the council argued the merits of the various books. A Johanan ben Zakkai was one of the tannaim, an important Jewish sage in the era of the Second Temple, and a primary contributor to the core text of Rabbinical Judaism, 70 AD most of the books of the New Testament were written and in full use. By 96 AD, the last book of the New Testament was written. wasnt no real hebrews in the land jews wrote them books fo romans that was mad at them! them 45 book the wasnt enough they couldnt start a religion wit the same old testament them jews had! so in comes the new testament!look up Koine bible first newtestament Koine bible look it up

what the fuss!

The Lord God has so many great names and why can't the preachers in their sermons & song composers use better names for our Lord God rather than using the same names?

Remember Jesus can also be called : Yeshua Ham'aschiah, Lion of Judah, king of Kings, Lord of lords, God of Israel, creator of the universe, Adonai,...

please do not limit Jesus name.....please make full use of HIS great name in composing songs and also during sermons.

Elohim = "God" (plural) as in the Creator: In the beginning God (Elohim) created the heaven and the earth (Genesis 1:1).

El Elyon = "God (singular) Most High": And Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine; now he was a priest of [El Elyon] God the Most High. And He blessed him and said,''blessed be Abram of God Most High, possessor of heaven and earth; and blessed be God Most High, who has delivered your enemies into your hand (Genesis 14:18-20).

El Roi = "God Who Sees": Then she called the name of the LORD who spoke to her,'You are a [El Roi] God who sees'; for she said,'Have I even remained alive here after seeing Him?' Therefore the well was called Beer-lahai-roi [well of the living one who sees me](Genesis 16:13-14).

El Shaddai = "God Almighty" or "God the All-Sufficient One"; the entomology is so ancient that Biblical scholars do not agree on the meaning of this name: I AM

El Shaddai. Live in my presence, be perfect, and I shall grant a covenant between myself and you, and make you very numerous. And Abram bowed to the ground (Genesis 17:2-3).

Yahweh = found in Scripture as the consonants YHWH, known as the "Tetragramaton" is God's holy Covenant name. The letters form a word or words from the verb "to be" and most scholars translate it as "I AM who I AM" or "I will be who I will be", or "the Self-Existent One: Moses said to God,'Look, if I go to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your ancestors has sent me to you, and they say to me,'What is His name?' what am I to tell them?' God said to Moses,'I AM He who is. Tell them that I AM who I am sent you (Exodus 3:13-14).

Adonai = "Lord" (Note: LORD, all in capital letters is a substitution out of reverence for God's covenant name "Yahweh"): Then Moses said to the LORD,'Please Lord, I have never been eloquent, neither recently nor in time past, nor since you have spoken to your servant; for I am slow of speech and slow of tongue. And the LORD said to him,'Who has made men's mouth? Or who makes him dumb or deaf, or seeing or blind? Is it not I, the LORD?'(Exodus 4:10-12, NAB).

Yahweh-jireh = "Yahweh will provide" or "I AM will provide": But the angel of the LORD called to him from heaven and said,'Abraham, Abraham!' And he said,'Here I am.' And he said,'Do not stretch out your hand against the lad, and do nothing to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, form Me.' Then Abraham raised his eyes and looked, and behind him he saw a ram caught up in the thicket by his horns; and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the place of his son. And Abraham called the name of that place [Yahweh-jireh]-The LORD will provide, as it is said to this day: On the Mountain Yahweh provides (Genesis 22:11-14).

Yahweh-rapha = "Yahweh who heals": If you will give earnest heed to the voice of Yahweh your God and do what He regards as right, if you pay attention to His commandments and keep all His laws, I shall never inflict on you any of the diseases that I inflicted on the Egyptians, for I am Yahweh your Healer [Yahweh-rapha](Exodus 15:26).

Yahweh–nissi = "Yahweh My Banner":(after willing a battle with God's assistance ) Moses built an altar, and named it Yahweh is My Banner [Yahweh-nissi]...(Exodus 17:16).

Yahweh-mekoddishkem = "Yahweh Who Sanctifies You": And Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,'But as for you, speak to the sons of Israel, saying, "You shall surely observe My Sabbaths; for this is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am Yahweh who sanctifies you [Yahweh-mekoddishkem]...(Exodu s 31:12).

Yahweh-shalom = "Yahweh is Peace": He said,'Alas, my Lord, Yahweh! Now I have seen the Angel of Yahweh face to face ' Yahweh answered,'Peace be with you; have no fear; you will not die.' Gideon built an altar there to Yahweh and called it Yahweh is peace [Yahweh-shalom](Judges 6:22-24).

Yahweh-sabaoth = "Yahweh of Hosts" (the "hosts" are the army of angels who serve God): Who is He, this king of glory? Yahweh of Hosts [Yahweh-saboath], He is the king of glory (Psalm 46:7, NJB); The LORD of Hosts [Yahweh-sabaoth] is with us; the God of Jacob is our stronghold (Psalms 22:10, NAB).

Yahweh-raah = "Yahweh My Shepherd": The LORD [Yahweh-raah] is my shepherd; I shall not want ...(Psalms 23:1, NAB).

Yahweh-tsidkenu = "Yahweh Our Saving Justice": Look, the days are coming, Yahweh declares, when I shall rise an upright Branch for David; He will reign as king and be wise, doing what is just and upright in the country. In his days Judah will triumph and Israel live in safety, and this is the name He will be called Yahweh-our-saving-justice [Yahweh-tsidkenu](Jeremiah 23:5-6).

THE MANY NAMES OF GOD

• Miscellaneous Documents

"Give thanks to Yahweh, call on his name..." Psalms 105:1a

In the Bible there are many different names given to the One True God. The most frequently used names are YHWH, usually rendered as Yahweh (ca. 6,800 times); Elohim (ca. 2,600 times); Adonai (ca. 439 times); and El (ca. 238 times). Most of the other names are combinations of these names like El Shaddai, El Eloah, and Yahweh Elohim. The most commonly used names for God in the Hebrew and Protestant Bibles are Ha-Shem (meaning "the name" which is used in the modern Jewish Masoretic Text translations of the Tanach) and Jehovah (used in both Protestant and Jewish translations). Both are names for God that only date back to the Middle Ages and are not found in the ancient texts of Sacred Scripture.

ADONAI: The word adon, in Hebrew, is translated "lord." God's name as Adonai is a form of the word "adon" with an "ai" ending. Adonai is used about 439 times in the Bible and can be translated either as "Lord" or as "my Lord". Biblical scholars and linguists, however, cannot agree as to the meaning of the "ai" suffix that has been added to the Hebrew word for "lord" (adon). Some scholars have suggested it indicates a plural of majesty. In most English translations this word is rendered as "Lord" with the first letter capitalized and the other letters lower case. Those translations that have the word "Lord" in all capital letters, "LORD", are instead indicating God's covenant name YHWH (usually rendered "Yahweh"). The use of all capital letters denotes the difference between the use of Adonai and Yahweh.(Only the NRSV translation confuses the issue by rendering Adonai as both "Lord" and "LORD").

EL and ELOHIM: The word El is used for God about 238 times while Elohim is used about 2,600 times. In the Bible Elohim has two distinct meanings. First it is a plural form (-im and -ot are the standard Hebrew plural endings) of the word "god" in the Hebrew and the Canaanite languages which is rendered "el" in the singular (when the word "el" is used for the One True God it is always capitalized = "El"). An example of the first meaning used in the plural form can be found in Deuteronomy 5:7: You shall have not other false gods [elohim] before me. But the most common use of Elohim is its second distinct meaning when it is used as a personal name for God or when referring to God as the true God among false gods. Thus it is used in Genesis 1:1: In the beginning Elohim created the heavens and the earth ..., and also in Joshua 24:19: You cannot worship Yahweh for He is a holy god [elohim].... There is no explanation why the plural form is used for the One True God (as it is in Genesis 1:1). However, scholars from the times of the Fathers of the Church have suggested that the plural form suggests the mystery of the Trinity which was hidden in the Old Testament to be revealed in the New.

YHWH: The four Hebrew consonants that comprise YHWH are given in Scripture as God's holy Covenant name, and it is this form of His name that is the most frequently used in the Bible (about 6,800 times).

These four Hebrew characters, YHWH = yod, hay, vav (v in Hebrew can also be rendered w in English), and hay have been called the "Tetragrammaton" or "tetragram", meaning "the four letter word." Biblical scholars do not know how YHWH was originally pronounced because its original pronunciation, which was part of the sacred Oral Tradition of the Jews, was lost when the Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed in 70 AD.

Throughout history, God's Old Covenant people treated God's name with great reverence, declaring it too holy to be spoken aloud. Speaking God's divine covenant name was restricted to the priests worshipping in God's Temple in Jerusalem, and so with the destruction of the Temple His holy covenant name was no longer spoken and the correct pronunciation of the name was lost. The rendering of YHWH as "Yahweh" is a modern conjecture (first suggested in the 16th century by biblical scholar Gilbert Genebrard, professor of Hebrew at the College Royal in Paris) but which has been accepted by biblical scholars today as the most likely rendering.

You will find this rendering in the Catholic New Jerusalem Bible translation. In other translations, following what became the Jewish custom, YHWH is rendered as LORD (for example in the Catholic Revised Standard and New American Bible translations as well as in most Protestant Bible translations). This became a custom from the time of the 3rd century BC when the ancient Jewish scholars translated the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) into the Greek translation known as the Septuagint. They replaced the Sacred Name YHWH with "ho Kyrios" or "the Lord." In the modern Jewish Tanach YHWH is rendered as Hashem (or ha-Shem, meaning in Hebrew, "the name") or as Adoshem, which is a contraction of Adonai and ha-Shem.

But what does the Tetragrammaton YHWH mean?

Biblical scholars have been arguing about the meaning of YHWH for centuries. Since biblical names generally have a discernible meaning, scholars have believed that YHWH can be reasonably translated.

Based on etymology and context most scholars have agreed that YHWH is an archaic form of the verb "to be" (in Hebrew hawah) and should be translated "I am who I am or I will be who I will be." This meaning contextually fits the passages in Exodus 3:13-15a: Moses then said to God [Elohim],'Look, if I go to the Israelites and say to me, "What is his name?" what am I to tell them?' God [Elohim] said to Moses,'I am [YHWH] he who is.' And he said,'This is what you are to say to the Israelites I am [YHWH] has sent me to you...', which agrees with Exodus 3:6: I am the God of your ancestors ..., and Jesus' "I AM" statements in the fourth Gospel i.e.: In all truth I tell you, before Abraham ever was, I AM (John 8:58).

JEHOVAH: The Biblical reference to God as Yehova (Jehova), spelled out with Hebrew characters, first appeared in c. 800 AD. At that time Jewish scholars (called the Masorites) translated the Greek translation of the (Old Testament) Bible back into Hebrew and added vowel points to the Hebrew language, which had originally only been written with consonants.

Since that time, Hebrew Bible manuscripts have inserted the vowels from the Hebrew word "Adonai" (Lord) within the Tetragrammaton ("the four letters), YHWH, as a reminder that readers should say "Adonai" instead of the sacred name which Jews believe must not be spoken. The pronunciation of "Jehovah" was unknown until 1520 AD when a biblical scholar named Galatians introduced it.

This pronunciation was contested by other scholars as being against grammatical and historical propriety. However, when Protestant scholars began their vernacular translations (into their common languages) of the Old Testament using the Jewish Masoretic translations, they also mixed the four consonants of YHWH (JHWH in German) with the vowels of Adonai in the mistaken belief that this was the correct pronunciation of the Sacred Name, and from then on, YHWH appeared in Protestant Biblical texts as "Jehovah".

This rendering is most frequently used in the King James Version translations as in, Let them be put to shame, and perish: That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth (Psalms 83:18). Modern scholars do not recognize this form as a legitimate name for the Hebrew God and dismiss it as a misreading or mispronunciation.

Jesus Christ is the Word that spoke the universe into existence. All things were created by Jesus Christ, Who is God Almighty. Jesus merely SPOKE 50,000,000,000 galaxies into existence.

"And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also" (Genesis 1:14-16).

amazed to learn that so many galaxies are in existence. Even more amazing is just how big the universe is...no one knows! Our own Milky-Way galaxy is so gigantic that it would take 1,000 lifetimes traveling at the speed of light to cross it one time. That's 186,282 miles per second for 70,000 years (that's 70,000 light years).

Can you comprehend such a truth? Now try to realize that there are an estimated 49,999,999,999 galaxies more remaining. These truths are so far beyond the human scope of thought that one would be a complete fool not to believe in God. Psalm 14:1 says that only a fool denies God's existence.

50,000,000,000 Galaxies

I have visited the Adler Planetarium in Chicago on several occasions. Each time I visit, I am more and more amazed at the complexity and awesomeness of God's handiwork in creation. I distinctly remember watching one of the space shows and learning that there are an estimated mind-boggling 50,000,000,000 galaxies in the universe. The Bible says that God created the heavens and the stars on the forth day of creation. To think that a being could merely speak so many galaxies into existence in one day is a scary thought. Who is this being? Do you mean to tell me that a being called "God" merely SPOKE the universe into existence? Yes, that is exactly right!

"For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:" (2 Peter 3:5).

God, by the Word of His own mouth, spoke the universe into existence.

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made" (John 1:1-3).

Jesus Christ is the Word that spoke the universe into existence. All things were created by Jesus Christ, Who is God Almighty. Jesus merely SPOKE 50,000,000,000 galaxies into existence.

"And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also" (Genesis 1:14-16).

Did you know that the nearest star to the earth is 4.6 light years away? Traveling at the speed of light (186,282 miles per second), one light-year is exactly equal to 5,874,589,152,000 miles! That's a lot of traveling in just ONE YEAR! So with the nearest star to our earth being a mere 4.6 light years away, it amounts to just a tad over 27 trillion miles away. Wow!!! How often have you looked up in the night sky and saw multitudes of stars? Probably more than you could ever possibly count (unless you live in the city). Did you ever stop to realize that the nearest star is 27,000,000,000,000 miles away? Do you know that there are ONLY 20 stars within 70 trillion miles of the earth?(not including our own sun of course). That's astounding to say the least. Out of the 100,000,000,000 stars just within our own Milky-Way galaxy alone, there are only 20 stars within 12 light-years of our earth (within 70,000,000,000,000 miles).

I saw another display at the planetarium that really made me appreciate God's handiwork and omnipotence. There was a little model of our solar system with the sun and planets. It was an interactive display where you had to set the course of the sun and planets. You simply would click and drag the planets one at a time to where you thought they should be and then let go. You had the task of properly balancing the sun and planets. The larger planets, having the larger masses, needed to be placed farther from the sun or else gravity would suck them right into a crash course. Smaller planets, such as mercury, had to be placed nearer the sun to avoid spinning out of the solar system. Sound easy? I couldn't do it! You also had to be careful to place the appropriately sized planets on the opposite sides of the sun. If you didn't, they collided very quickly. If the planets were placed improperly, the sun left it's orbit. Everything had to be balanced perfectly or else all the different strength gravities would cause havoc. I realized from that small model of the universe that many, many forces were at work and needed to be balanced for everything to work. Could all this just happen? There is no way possible friend. The universe has a logical order to it. If you saw a beautiful clock and asked who made it, you'd think me insane if I said, "It just happened." The universe has an order to it, it rotates. You'd be a dumb fool to deny the existence of a divine Creator.

Think about it, where did all this come from? Do you really believe the BIG BANG theory? It is just a theory you know. Do you really believe that everything in the universe started with a super-compressed particle of mass the size of a pin-head? Ok, then where did that particle come from? There is no logical answer other than God.

How big is the universe? Where does it end? If it's ever-expanding, then what lies beyond the outer limits? Again, the only logical answer is God. Can the universe have an end? If so, can "nothing" exist beyond that point? How can "nothing" exist? There is only one answer friend, God.

If you believe in God, then you must ask yourself, "Has this being (God) tried to communicate with humanity?" If so, do you think God would trust corrupt religion to do so? There are thousands of religions; do you think God would leave us at the mercy of trying to figure out which one is telling us the truth? Only a complete fool would believe that all religions lead to God. The Catholics teach that Baptists are going to hell. The Baptists teach that the Catholics are going to hell. Islamic Muslims teach that Baptist and Catholics are going to hell. Who is right? Do you think God relies upon sinful humans to reveal Himself to the rest of humanity? Friend, you had better look to God's Word! Then again, there are hundreds of perverted bibles available throughout the world today; Which Bible is God's True Word? The answer is the 1611 King James Bible. How do I know? Because of have searched high and low for the truth. I have analyzed religion for over 20 years of my life. The main reason I know is because I accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as my personal Savior when I was 13 years old. I became a born-again believer. I placed my trust in Jesus because of the precious blood that He shed and applied to the mercy-seat in heaven for my sins. My faith is 100% in Christ alone, apart from ALL good works. This is how I know that I have found the truth, because Jesus is the Truth and He lives within my heart.

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me" (John 14:6).

If you want to find the truth, then you need Jesus Christ, for He is the Truth. He is the one Who spoke 50,000,000,000 galaxies into existence. It is Jesus alone Who can cleanse your heart of all sin and write your name in heaven. It is Jesus alone Who can give you the peace of God and the riches of heaven. All you need to do is call upon Jesus in prayer and ask Him to forgive you of your sins and save you. make the decision now to trust Christ 100%, apart from all else for salvation. Admit your a sinner, deserving of hell-fire. Believing that Jesus is Almighty God, Who came in the flesh to die on a cross, born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, Who was buried and rose again 3 days later for your sins and mine...trust him alone to save you.

In Jesus' Name,
forgive us all dear Jesus

Medical doctor Mark Eastman helps us understand an act of love that may make your skin crawl, the likes which have never been seen anywhere, before or since. Read it, shudder, and maybe weep.

Most everyone is familiar with the phrase, "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." It comes from the Bible, the words of Jesus Christ. Dr. Eastman gives a medical understanding of how Jesus set such a chilling example, with a scientific medical description of His gruesome, bloody death.

The punishment actually started during His trial, when He was spat upon and beaten. According to Dr. Eastman, this probably caused Jesus' eyelids to be swollen shut even before the trial was complete.

Immediately after His trial, Jesus was "scourged" (flogged) by the brutish Roman soldiers, an extreme form of punishment. The soldiers used a whip of numerous thongs, embedded with metal, bone or glass. Lash! Lash! Lash! Each lash tore into Jesus' body. There were typically 39 flesh-ripping lashes. The skin on His back was horribly shredded, exposing underlying muscle and skeletal tissues. Blood gushed from His wounds. Many victims died from the sheer trauma of this torture. An irreversible process of severe dehydration and cardiorespiratory failure began. A crown of thorns was mockingly placed on Jesus' head, causing more blood. He was spat upon and beaten more. But that was only the beginning. It gets worse…

The next step: the dreaded crucifixion on the cross. Invented by the Persians between 300-400 B.C. and perfected by the Romans, crucifixion is called "the most painful death ever invented by man." It is where we get the term excruciating. To humiliate Him, Jesus was stripped naked, then placed on His back, arms stretched out and placed on a crossbar. Nails, about 7-9 inches long, were driven between the bones of the forearm (the radius and ulna) and the small bones of the hands (the carpal bones). This insured that He would hang there until dead, and also to sever the median nerve, the largest nerve in the hand. This severing is a medical catastrophe, causing severe burning pain and the permanent paralysis of the hands.

The positioning of the feet was critical. Jesus' knees were bent at about 45 degrees and the feet were flexed (bent downward) an additional 45 degrees. Another iron nail about 7-9 inches long was driven through His feet between the second and third metatarsal bones, severing the dorsal pedal artery. This set up a horrific series of events, resulting in a slow, painful death. Knees bent, Jesus now must try to bear His weight with the muscles of His thigh, an impossible position to maintain.

In minutes, the strength of Jesus' legs gave out, resulting in the weight of the body being borne by His arms and shoulders, causing the shoulders to become dislocated. This causes the arms to be 6-9 inches longer than normal. With the arms dislocated, considerable body weight is transferred to the chest, causing the rib cage to be elevated in a state of perpetual inhalation. Consequently, in order to exhale, Jesus had to push down on His feet to allow the rib muscles to relax. Due to extreme fatigue, He could not do this for long, and as time went on He was less and less able, causing further dislocation of the arms and further raising of the chest wall, making breathing more and more difficult.

The result of this process is a series of catastrophic physiological effects. Because Jesus could not maintain adequate ventilation of His lungs, the blood oxygen level began to diminish and the blood carbon dioxide level began to rise. This stimulated the heart to beat faster in order to increase the delivery of oxygen and the removal of the carbon dioxide. However, Jesus' body could not deliver more oxygen and the rising heart rate only increased oxygen demand. The process set up a vicious cycle of increasing demand, which could not be met, followed by an ever-increasing heart rate.
Jesus' heart began to fail and the lungs collapsed and filled up with fluid, which further decreased oxygen delivery to the tissues. The blood loss and hyperventilation combined to cause more dehydration. That is why Jesus said, "I thirst."

Gradually, the combination of collapsing lungs, a failing heart, dehydration, and the inability to get adequate oxygen supplies to the tissues cause the eventual death of the victim. In effect, he cannot breathe properly and slowly suffocates to death. Making the situation much worse, because of the purpose of His suffering, Jesus also experienced the horror of separation from His heavenly Father, and the sins of all humanity.
