I’m excited to finally share with you Part 2 of my epic study Ten Rabbis Speak Out on the Name! In this Support Team Study, I bring Jewish sources, never seen before by the English-speaking world. Gentile scholars have plumbed the depths of every pagan and heathen text for centuries to reconstruct the pronunciation of God's holy name. It's time to let the Jews speak! Continue reading
In Nehemia Gordon's Support Team Study, 10 Rabbis Speak Out on the Name - Part 1, Nehemia Gordon brings evidence from newly discovered Hebrew manuscripts proving that Jewish rabbis preserved the true pronunciation of God's holy name. Nehemia also explains why scholars ignore Jewish sources while searching out every pagan non-Hebrew text they can find. Continue reading
In Nehemia Gordon's Support Team Study, Jaw-Dropping Revelations from Israel, he talks with Dev Daniel about his adventures with the mysterious T-Bone, a revelation received on a Galilee mountaintop, and the discovery of a large cache of unknown Hebrew manuscripts. Judy wrote: "Wow, this is so amazing, again Nehemia thank you for ALL you do and Share, can't get enough." Continue reading
Keith Johnson speaks about Yeshua proclaiming the name of His Father. Continue reading
In Part 6 of the Open Door series, Keith Johnson speaks about “Inviting the Name In”. Throughout history both Jews and Christians have allowed fear, anger, and circumstances to separate them from God’s name. But our heavenly Father said He would bless every place where his name dwells. Johnson examines two “Gittites” who interacted with God’s name — Goliath the Gittite who cursed it, and Obededom the Gittite who received the Name into his home. Johnson exhorts Christian listeners to be ambassadors of the name, and for the sake of the Jew first, to proclaim it to the world so that the house of Israel may be blessed and restored. Be like Obededom, “the Gittite who got it right!”
In Part 3 of the Open Door Series, Nehemia Gordon explains how the name of God, sacred to both Jews and Christians, has become hidden by time and tradition. Beginning with Roman persecution forbidding Jews to speak the name through rabbinical adaptations, translation errors and other misunderstandings, the one and only name of the Lord was superseded over time by titles—like “El Shaddai,” or “Adonai”. As the exiles of Israel and the others joined with them to return to the Promised Land, the name of the Lord Yehovah is again being sanctified and exalted.
A few weeks ago I was bathing an elephant in northern Laos, when she suddenly decided to toss me headlong into the murky waters of the Mekong River. My encounter with Ms. Snuffleupagus got me thinking about the Hebrew word for elephant, which is PIL פיל. This word does not appear in the Tanakh, simply because the Hebrew Bible had no occasion to speak about elephants. However, the word did exist in ancient Hebrew and later appears in the Mishnah and the Dead Sea Scrolls. The Hebrew word PIL is probably the source (via Phoenician) behind the Greek word ELEPHAS, from which the English word "elephant" is itself derived (via French). Continue reading
