Nehemia Gordon discussing with Michael Rood whether John 6:4 belongs in the New Testament.In this episode of Hebrew Voices, Does John 6:4 Belong in the New Testament - PART 3 of 4, we examine the controversy about the Gospel of John which has raged for nearly 2,000 years, as we continue our 4-part series to solve a textual conundrum using technology John could not have imagined and drawing on resources unavailable even a few years ago. Be sure to first watch Part 1 and Part 2!

I look forward to reading your comments!

    Finally part 3. Watched it immediately. Feels like watching it is a mini-course on textual analysis and a semester on seminary and also an Agatha Christie novel. Its wonderful. Can’t wait for part 4. Some may be afraid that this is their Christianity being attacked. I find the opposite. My faith in my faith is strengthened in this seminar and I’m leaving it up to seeing where the journey on this takes us.

    Thank you Michael Rood for inspiring John and Nehemia on this investigation. And thank you John and Nehemia for all the work. What is John’s name by the way – does he have a blog, website, or other way to follow his work?

    I have also read an interpretation where Jesus ministry was 3.5 years and the other 3.5 yrs is when Steven was stoned by Paul and Paul took over the building of the church which would make Vatican the 3rd Temple. This is not what I believe.

    I’m looking for the book and can’t wait for Part 4 although I am confident that the hypothesis is already proved to be reasonable.
    I am enjoying your progressive explanation, including the revelation of the biases of the church fathers, and know that this is just a summary of an enormous body of work.

    It would be very interesting and revealing if you could continue your research of other verses including 1John 5:7 and 1Timothy 3:16

    These were discussed in great detail within a dissertation by Isaac Newton in his work “An Historical Account of Two Notable Corruptions of Scripture”

    Wow, and Thanks! I’m glad it’s presented in 4 parts, because my brain is full and won’t be able to watch this part again without some sleep and nourishment.

    Just a few thoughts on Dan 9 ….

    The number 7 indicates completeness. One day can also stand for one year! If Yeshua’s ministry had been cut off after three and a half years, then this would mean that at the end times, another ministry in the spirit of Yeshua has to last three and a half years, and be cut off after three and a half years .. ? !
    Yeshua’s ministry had been to the House of Judah and Israel!
    Could it be that another ministry in the ‘spirit of Yeshua’ has to go out to the Gentiles? A ministry lasting three and a half years and being cut off after three and a half years as described in … **

    Rev 11:3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

    Zech 4:3 And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.

    Mt 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

    Abomination of Desolation
    **In my view much hangs on the word of Yeshua and his reference to the prophecy in Daniel !!**

    Mt 24:15 When all of you therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso reads, let him understand:)
