Superlative Documentary on the Dead Sea Scrolls
I can't praise this documentary highly enough.
It is a remarkably sensitive, respectful and understanding documentary about the Dead Sea Scrolls by a Muslim who works for BBC by the name of Rageh Omaar.
I just had to send a letter of effusive compliments.

Lost in Translation
Martin Luther once said the following:
"The Hebrew language is the best language of all, with the richest vocabulary... If I were younger I would want to learn this language, because no one can really understand the Scriptures without it. For although the New Testament is written in Greek, it is full of Hebraisms and Hebrew expressions. It has therefore been aptly said that the Hebrews drink from the spring, the Greeks from the stream that flows from it, and the Latins from a downstream puddle."
In this rare, remarkable and uncharacteristic moment of lucidity; Martin Luther revealed a great deal to the Christian world. Would that they have taken heed, or at least notice.
Not only was Luther being generous of spirit enough to admit that only those fluent in Hebrew, that is the Jews, could understand the depths of Torah; he was saying that the German translation of "the Bible" that he himself produced could be nothing more than a torpid cesspool, if Latin was "a downstream puddle". Most remarkable of all, it is not only inferable, but necessarily true from Martin Luther's statement, that he admitted that he did not understand the Bible that he translated into vernacular German.
Whether or not Luther was aware of the alpha-numerical properties of Hebrew, which provide the layers and lattices of meaning, as well as alternative readings of the Text that are inaccessible to all but the adept and which render Hebrew wholly untranslatable is not inferable from the passage above. If he was aware of the alpha-numerical nature of Hebrew, he preferred not to share this information with his flock.
Because it is true that the Torah is wholly untranslatable, all hermeneutics and exegesis based on a "Bible" in translation must be delusion based on initial gross, often intentional, misunderstanding. It is most likely that any translations based on translations (translations of "the Bible" from Greek or Latin) will go yet further afield and one will be led into the sphere of hallucination based on delusion. Any conclusions drawn from hermeneutics and exegesis based on the Greek translation will be without foundation, while conclusions drawn from hermeneutics and exegesis based on translations of translations cannot but be insanity.
Woe to the followers of a religion who based their thought, their emotions, their intellectual work, their "spirituality" on gross misunderstanding! How much wasted effort, indeed, how much pain could have been averted had the Christian world heeded, or at least noted, Martin Luther's admission.
Christianity was, and remains, the most sophisticated system of mind and emotions control ever devised. I believe the leaders of the various denominations in the uppermost echelons of power and influence were, and are, very much aware of what Luther knew and chose to lead the Christians into demensions [sic] of "Bible" interpretation that constituted a delusional state of mind. The emotions generated by those delusional ideas must be considered extreme emotional disturbances. Christian history and how Christians typically related to the rest of humanity bear out these sad, but ineluctable, conclusions.
It is said that the mind sciences are a recent discipline and systematic mind control a modern undertaking. I differ from that opinion. It seems to me that pagan practices were nothing but mind and emotions control, often by trauma. These are age-old practices and Christianity has seen to it that they have not been lost in the mists of time, but only hidden behind filmy veils and symbols of sufficient abstraction that they are not immediately recognizable.
Would that the Christian world had taken heed, or at least notice, of Luther's message in the passage above. It was probably the most important message he delivered to the Christian world in his lifetime.

The Truth About the Jews and Christ Hidden in Plain Sight
Recently, there is a huge push among Protestants, who think that if they rid Christianity of Catholicism then all will be pure and good, to pin all of the brutality of Christianity on the Catholics. That is a self-deception. Let's hope, however, that it is attributable to nascent recognition of the heinous acts committed in the name of Christ, the inner meaning of which will be explained below.
All of Christianity is a death cult.
It was Protestants, not Catholics, who carried out the witch hunts (although I'm sure the Vatican had a great deal to do with it, the Protestants were enthusiastic participations), enslaved the Blacks and devastated the Natives in North America.
Surely, you are familiar with the Chi Rho symbol.
The Greek letter rho in the symbol is another pronunciation of the name of the Egyptian sun god Ra. All languages in the Middle East are very flexible with the pronunciation of vowels, as they change with grammatical rules. One of the pronunciations of Ra was Ro, as is commonly known and acknowledged.
So, every time one ascribes divinity to christ, that person is ascribing divinity to chi RO ist. That person is saying that s/he is a ChiROist. The Chi, of course, has been integrated into Buddhism as a central teaching and we know that the occultist Catholics, like the Nazis who based themselves on the beliefs and hierarchical structure of the Jesuits, were obsessed with the Tibetans. The Nazis planned to set up an Aryan settlement in Tibet. They wanted to soak up the occult energy of Chi. It evidently compliments that of Rho.
It's hidden in plain view in the designation Christ, as is their wont to do things.
And I'll tell you what else is hidden in plain view - the identity of the true child of God who was sent to this world as a redeemer, but was made into a sacrificial lamb. The word Jews is hidden in the name Jesus.
The Hebrew word בני (b-n-i) can either be pronounced b'nei, meaning the sons or sons and daughters of, or it can be pronounced b'ni, meaning my son or it can be pronounced b'nai, meaning my sons or my sons and daughters.
The Hebrew Bible is not punctuated to allow for elasticity of interpretation. Thus the phrase בני ישראל (b-n-i Yisrael) can mean: the sons or the sons and daughters of Yisrael; my sons or my sons and daughters, Yisrael; or my son, Yisrael.
When the God of Yisrael says b-n-i Yisrael, God is referring to us as Its Children and also Its child in the singular.
Yisrael is the Child of God. We have no need of mythology or deification. We are the Child of God in human form and we act according to human abilities *for the sake of all humanity*.
The early Church understood the mission of the Jews in this world - that we are the Child of God sent into this world to redeem it – to be a light unto the Gentiles.
In order to hide the truth from the world, they contracted the story of an entire People, the Jewish People, in every generation, into the figure of one character - Jesus.
To make the Jews further unrecognizable as the true Child of God they then applied the supernatural attributes to Jesus that they found in pagan religions attributed to the various deities and mythological figures.
This also helped the Church attract the various heathens to Christianity - they made Jesus look familiar to the heathens they conquered by applying to him the mythology the heathens believed in.
The heathens thus acquiesced and the figure of Jesus became ever more fantastic, as he took on more and more mythological, supernatural qualities.
The identity of the true Child of God, the Jews, the People sent to redeem this world, to be a light unto the Gentiles, was thus hidden - eventually even from most of the Jews themselves.
This is the Truth (תורת) that the Church has been hiding from the world.

The Jewish Problem
As you can see from the references below, the Rothschild family, most especially Jacob Rothschild, maintain an absolute monopoly over the control and direction of Jewish scholarship and Jewish policy worldwide. Their interests in all that pertain to the State of Israel in particular are reflected in their donation of the Knesset and Supreme Court buildings, the latter of which is infamous for the widespread Masonic symbolism integrated, part and parcel, into its architecture. That includes all of the streams of Judaism and all of the studies undertaken and policy decided by the various Jewish ethnic subgroups.
"Jacob Rothschild resigned from the family's bank NM Rothschilds in 1980, started RIT Capital Partners. He is chairman of Yad Hanadiv, the Rothschild foundation, chairs the Jewish Policy Research, dedicated to promoting issues affecting Jews worldwide."
I take exception to Jacob Rothschild being referred to as a "Kabbalist" on the above site, BTW. He does not learn Kabbalah. He learns and practices sorcery, which is proscribed absolutely by Torah.
"The Yad Hanadiv [which means Hand or Fund of the Generous Benefactor (choke)] and the Baracha Foundation [which means Foundation of the Blessing (splutter)] awards fellowships annually to scholars (who hold non-tenured university positions or who will not receive tenure within a set time frame) in Jewish studies. The purpose of the fellowships is "an effort to enhance the quality of courses, instruction and research in Jewish Studies in universities throughout the world ... Fellows will spend a year in Israel, pursuing their research projects while participating in a structured programme in their field of study. The programme will include regular meetings with a senior scholar who will be selected in consultation with the Fellow and who will serve as an academic supervisor." Upon completion of the fellowship year, the Fellows will be required to confirm that upon completion of the academic year they will resume teaching Jewish studies, at a University abroad."
Rothschild serves as chairman of Yad Hanadiv, the Rothschild foundation which built and handed over to the State of Israel the buildings for both the Knesset and the Supreme Court. He is also President of the Institute for Jewish Policy Research, an organization dedicated to cooperation in research, analysis and policy planning on issues affecting Jewish life worldwide."
VISITING FELLOWSHIPS IN JEWISH STUDIES
"Yad Hanadiv and the Beracha Foundation are offering visiting fellowships in Jewish Studies for the academic year 1998-1999. Fellowships will be awarded to teachers of Judaic studies who hold non-tenured university positions, or who will have received tenure after September 1997. The Fellows will spend the academic year in Israel, working on their own research but also meeting regularly with a senior scholar in their field.
Fellows are required to confirm that upon completion of the fellowship they will resume teaching Jewish studies at a university abroad."
These include endowments for the study of the Dead Sea Scrolls – the only hope the Jewish people have of being able to compare that which is written in the Talmud with another contemporaneous source and thus know how to sort out what is true and what is untrue in the Talmud.
The studies of the Dead Sea Scrolls have been systematically distorted and stymied. Research on the Dead Sea Scrolls is routinely farmed out to pseudo-scholars who have neither the Hebrew proficiency nor the background in Jewish studies to be able to understand the Texts properly and often have an agenda of their own that is inimical to understanding the Dead Sea Scrolls properly.
I, for one, feel much more comfortable with the Judaism found in the Dead Sea Scrolls, that of the Tzdokkim (the Saducees) than in the Pharisaic Talmud and the Rabbinic tradition which is derived from it. The Judaism of HaYachad (meaning 'those who are unified', commonly known as the Essenes and the Dead Sea Sect) resembles the Judaism of the Talmud in many way. But there are also very important divergences – and those divergences are invariably more in keeping with the Torah than is the Judaism of the Pharisees, the latter of which HaYachad unequivocally stated that they considered filled with capitulation and distortion.
The Rothschilds do not want that Judaism getting out and being practiced because the dark side of the Kabbalah is based on that which is distorted in the Talmud.
And that is precisely why I do want it to get out and around. :0)
This is not to say that all that is taught in Judaism is distortion. The Jews have, despite the onslaught, managed to maintain a surprising degree of clarity and integrity and loyalty to the ancient way, but the infiltration of Judaism by those with nefarious intentions and purposes has most definitely been partially successful and has taken its toll.
I ALWAYS THOUGHT THE NAME ORION UNFITTINGI always thought that the name The Orion Center for the Study of the Dead Sea Scrolls at the Hebrew University was an odd name for a center devoted to precisely that subject. It hardly seemed a name that HaYachad (the Dead Sea Sect) would have approved of or a name that affords them their due respect.
I never felt comfortable with the fact that The Orion Center for the Study of the Dead Sea Scrolls embraced and funded the research of non-Jews, specifically Christians, who could not possibly have the background to be able to fathom what they were looking at and were clearly skewing the research, which was often conducted on translations of the fragments.
I found it odd that a representative of The Orion Center for the Study of the Dead Sea Scrolls contacted me some time ago and asked if they could integrate my research in some of their papers, but never offered to publish my work.
I always found it strange that the results of Emanuel Tov's research is published not in Israel, but by Oxford University Press and Brill Publishers.
Most of all, I wondered why the Dead Sea Scrolls were never afforded the respect they deserved and why The Orion Center for the Study of the Dead Sea Scrolls did nothing to educate the public concerning the authenticity of the Judaism propounded in the Dead Sea Scrolls.
Why, I wondered again and again, was I the only voice calling in the wilderness asserting that HaYachad (The Dead Sea Sect) were practicing a form of Judaism far truer to the original than that of the Prushim (Pharisees) and that which is written about them in the Talmud is mendacious?
Recently, it all started to make sense.
I was searching for information about Emanuel Tov. I found that he received the following award: Warburg Award, Hebrew University - 1969–1971, inter alia.
"Hmmm...Warburg", thought I. "Might there be other "Illuminati" lurking in the shadows of Dead Sea Scroll research.
And, lo and behold, it was not long before I found this:
What is Yad HaNadiv?
It's this: Yad Hanadiv FellowshipIn an effort to enhance the quality of courses, instruction and research in Jewish Studies in universities throughout the world, a Visiting Fellowship programme has been established by Yad Hanadiv and the Beracha Foundation
Jacob Rothschild... serves as chairman of Yad Hanadiv, the Rothschild foundation which built and handed over to the State of Israel the buildings for both the Knesset and the Supreme Court. He is also President of the Institute for Jewish Policy Research, an organization dedicated to cooperation in research, analysis and policy planning on issues affecting Jewish life worldwide."
We have seen in my article "The Supreme Masonic Temple of the State of Israel" just what the nature of the Supreme Court Building of the State of Israel is:
And similarly, my friends, they are employing their Craft to keep the Jewish truth from you and perpetuate Rabbinic Judaism, which is based on Pharisaic Judaism, because it is upon the distortions in that tradition (which is not to say that that tradition is all distortions) that Lurianic Kabbalah is based.
I cannot begin to express in words how serious a matter it is that "an organization dedicated to cooperation in research, analysis and policy planning on issues affecting Jewish life worldwide" is funded and administered by the Rothschild family.
Suffice it to say that so long as this is the case, that which is peddled as Judaism is Craft with a smattering of true Jewish principles in order to lend an air of credence to the heresies. Please see my writings on the subject of HaYachad (the Essenes, The Dead Sea Sect):
http://hiddentheophoricnamesinthewarscroll.blogspot.com/ _______________________________________________________Someone asked me why I find exception with the name Orion for a research center for the Dead Sea Scrolls.
Orion was a hunter in Greek mythology. What could be less fitting to a group of peaceful Jewish mystics? HaYachad, the Essenes or Dead Sea Sect, were begun by a group of Cohenim or Priests. They had the collective memory of the Jews being persecuted by the Greeks and desecrating the Temple deep in their psyche. They recalled when the Greeks forced the Jews to translate Torah into Greek on pain of death for the entire community for refusing and they understood the cultural havoc that would wreak in the coming generations, as Hebrew cannot be properly translated into any other language. They knew that the non-Jewish world, not possessing Hebrew and the Oral Tradition, would go far afield attempting to "interpret" a Script they could not possibly understand correctly and that matters would only become worse as further translations were carried out based on the Greek.
The Aramaic word orian or term bar orian means 'one who is literate'.
Typical of the Rothschilds who put a spin on everything they equivocated between the Aramaic word 'orian' and Orion the hunter in Greek mythology.

THE NEW WORLD ORDER vs.
THE DEAD SEA SECT
The article below was posted on a List today.
I've heard a few oblique references to the Dead Sea Scrolls in relation to the NWO, but nothing that put up an immediate red flag.
It was only reasonable to assume that so powerful an instrument is going to be manipulated.
I believe the following is the beginning of that manipulation.
Tablet Ignites Debate on Messiah and Resurrection
By Ethan Bronner
JERUSALEM: A three-foot-tall tablet with 87 lines of Hebrew that scholars believe dates from the decades just before the birth of Jesus is causing a quiet stir in biblical and archaeological circles, especially because it may speak of a messiah who will rise from the dead after three days.
If such a messianic description really is there, it will contribute to a developing re-evaluation of both popular and scholarly views of Jesus, since it suggests that the story of his death and resurrection was not unique but part of a recognized Jewish tradition at the time.
The tablet, probably found near the Dead Sea in Jordan according to some scholars who have studied it, is a rare example of a stone with ink writings from that era in essence, a Dead Sea Scroll on stone.
It is written, not engraved, across two neat columns, similar to columns in a Torah. But the stone is broken, and some of the text is faded, meaning that much of what it says is open to debate.
Still, its authenticity has so far faced no challenge, so its role in helping to understand the roots of Christianity in the devastating political crisis faced by the Jews of the time seems likely to increase.
Daniel Boyarin, a professor of Talmudic culture at the University of California at Berkeley, said that the stone was part of a growing body of evidence suggesting that Jesus could be best understood through a close reading of the Jewish history of his day.
"Some Christians will find it shocking a challenge to the uniqueness of their theology while others will be comforted by the idea of it being a traditional part of Judaism," Boyarin said.
Given the highly charged atmosphere surrounding all Jesus-era artifacts and writings, both in the general public and in the fractured and fiercely competitive scholarly community, as well as the concern over forgery and charlatanism, it will probably be some time before the tablet's contribution is fully assessed. It has been around 60 years since the Dead Sea Scrolls were uncovered, and they continue to generate enormous controversy regarding their authors and meaning.
The scrolls, documents found in the Qumran caves of the West Bank, contain some of the only known surviving copies of biblical writings from before the first century AD In addition to quoting from key books of the Bible, the scrolls describe a variety of practices and beliefs of a Jewish sect at the time of Jesus.
How representative the descriptions are and what they tell us about the era are still strongly debated. For example, a question that arises is whether the authors of the scrolls were members of a monastic sect or in fact mainstream. A conference marking 60 years since the discovery of the scrolls will begin on Sunday at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, where the stone, and the debate over whether it speaks of a resurrected messiah, as one iconoclastic scholar believes, also will be discussed.
Oddly, the stone is not really a new discovery. It was found about a decade ago and bought from a Jordanian antiquities dealer by an Israeli-Swiss collector who kept it in his Zurich home. When an Israeli scholar examined it closely a few years ago and wrote a paper on it last year, interest began to rise. There is now a spate of scholarly articles on the stone, with several due to be published in the coming months.
"I couldn't make much out of it when I got it," said David Jeselsohn, the owner, who is himself an expert in antiquities. "I didn't realize how significant it was until I showed it to Ada Yardeni, who specializes in Hebrew writing, a few years ago. She was overwhelmed. 'You have got a Dead Sea Scroll on stone,' she told me."
Much of the text, a vision of the apocalypse transmitted by the angel Gabriel, draws on the Old Testament, especially the prophets Daniel, Zechariah and Haggai.
Yardeni, who analyzed the stone along with Binyamin Elitzur, is an expert on Hebrew script, especially of the era of King Herod, who died in 4 BC The two of them published a long analysis of the stone more than a year ago in Cathedra, a Hebrew-language quarterly devoted to the history and archaeology of Israel, and said that, based on the shape of the script and the language, the text dated from the late first century BC
A chemical examination by Yuval Goren, a professor of archaeology at Tel Aviv University who specializes in the verification of ancient artifacts, has been submitted to a peer-review journal. He declined to give details of his analysis until publication, but he said that he knew of no reason to doubt the stone's authenticity.
It was in Cathedra that Israel Knohl, an iconoclastic professor of Bible studies at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, first heard of the stone, which Yardeni and Elitzur dubbed "Gabriel's Revelation," also the title of their article. Knohl posited in a book published in 2000 the idea of a suffering messiah before Jesus, using a variety of rabbinic and early apocalyptic literature as well as the Dead Sea Scrolls. But his theory did not shake the world of Christology as he had hoped, partly because he had no textual evidence from before Jesus.
When he read "Gabriel's Revelation," he said, he believed he saw what he needed to solidify his thesis, and he has published his argument in the latest issue of The Journal of Religion.
Knohl is part of a larger scholarly movement that focuses on the political atmosphere in Jesus' day as an important explanation of that era's messianic spirit. As he notes, after the death of Herod, Jewish rebels sought to throw off the yoke of the Rome-supported monarchy, so the rise of a major Jewish independence fighter could take on messianic overtones.
In Knohl's interpretation, the specific messianic figure embodied on the stone could be a man named Simon who was slain by a commander in the Herodian army, according to the first-century historian Josephus. The writers of the stone's passages were probably Simon's followers, Knohl contends.
The slaying of Simon, or any case of the suffering messiah, is seen as a necessary step toward national salvation, he says, pointing to lines 19 through 21 of the tablet "In three days you will know that evil will be defeated by justice" and other lines that speak of blood and slaughter as pathways to justice.
To make his case about the importance of the stone, Knohl focuses especially on line 80, which begins clearly with the words "L'shloshet yamin," meaning "in three days." The next word of the line was deemed partially illegible by Yardeni and Elitzur, but Knohl, who is an expert on the language of the Bible and Talmud, says the word is "hayeh," or "live" in the imperative. It has an unusual spelling, but it is one in keeping with the era.
Two more hard-to-read words come later, and Knohl said he believed that he had deciphered them as well, so that the line reads, "In three days you shall live, I, Gabriel, command you."
To whom is the archangel speaking? The next line says "Sar hasarin," or prince of princes. Since the Book of Daniel, one of the primary sources for the Gabriel text, speaks of Gabriel and of "a prince of princes," Knohl contends that the stone's writings are about the death of a leader of the Jews who will be resurrected in three days.
He says further that such a suffering messiah is very different from the traditional Jewish image of the messiah as a triumphal, powerful descendant of King David.
"This should shake our basic view of Christianity," he said as he sat in his office of the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem where he is a senior fellow in addition to being the Yehezkel Kaufman Professor of Biblical Studies at Hebrew University. "Resurrection after three days becomes a motif developed before Jesus, which runs contrary to nearly all scholarship. What happens in the New Testament was adopted by Jesus and his followers based on an earlier messiah story."
Yardeni said she was impressed with the reading and considered it indeed likely that the key illegible word was "hayeh," or "live." Whether that means Simon is the messiah under discussion, she is less sure.
Moshe Bar-Asher, president of the Israeli Academy of Hebrew Language and emeritus professor of Hebrew and Aramaic at the Hebrew University, said he spent a long time studying the text and considered it authentic, dating from no later than the first century BC His 25-page paper on the stone will be published in the coming months.
Regarding Knohl's thesis, Bar-Asher is also respectful but cautious. "There is one problem," he said. "In crucial places of the text there is lack of text. I understand Knohl's tendency to find there keys to the pre-Christian period, but in two to three crucial lines of text there are a lot of missing words."
Moshe Idel, a professor of Jewish thought at Hebrew University who has just published a book on the son of God, said that given the way every tiny fragment from that era yielded scores of articles and books, "Gabriel's Revelation" and Knohl's analysis deserved serious attention. "Here we have a real stone with a real text," he said. "This is truly significant."
Knohl said that it was less important whether Simon was the messiah of the stone than the fact that it strongly suggested that a savior who died and rose after three days was an established concept at the time of Jesus. He notes that in the Gospels, Jesus makes numerous predictions of his suffering and New Testament scholars say such predictions must have been written in by later followers because there was no such idea present in his day.
But there was, he said, and "Gabriel's Revelation" shows it.
"His mission is that he has to be put to death by the Romans to suffer so his blood will be the sign for redemption to come," Knohl said. "This is the sign of the son of Joseph. This is the conscious view of Jesus himself. This gives the Last Supper an absolutely different meaning. To shed blood is not for the sins of people but to bring redemption to Israel."
BIBLICAL STONE CAUSES STIR; Re-evaluation of Jesus story?
I didn't, and don't, see anything about this in the Hebrew press, or even in the English-language Israeli newspaper The Jerusalem Post.
I could have missed it, but this should have been an item in the headlines. I've been reading the Hebrew news regularly.
The idea of writing with ink, not engraving, on stone sounded a bit odd.
I mentioned the above article to my husband, Dani'el, and the claim of some to be in possession of a tablet of stone from Qumran with ink writing on it. He got a good chuckle from that one.
I'd like to bring the following excerpt to the reader's attention at this juncture.
"It has been around 60 years since the Dead Sea Scrolls were uncovered, and they continue to generate enormous controversy regarding their authors and meaning."
I own a complete Concordance of all of the known non-Biblical Dead Sea texts. Emmanu'el Tov produced it a few years ago when he was sure that he was in possession of all of the materials.
There is no mention of any such stone. I have never heard any mention of any such stone tablets, neither has Dani'el.
More importantly, Emmanu'el Tov is the world's expert on the scrolls. The fact that his name is not even mentioned in the article is suspect.
The 2012 Brigade are hard at work staging the Disney-Pomo World Productions Armageddon Spectacular.
I've heard a few oblique references to the Dead Sea Scrolls in relation to the NWO, nothing that put up an immediate red flag.
It was only reasonable to assume that so powerful an instrument is going to be manipulated.
It was just a matter of time.
My suspicion is that the next Dead Sea Scroll to be mentioned in the news will be the War Scroll. The will present it as a justification and preparation for Armaggedon.
This is a time of need for great balance and restraint. We all want a better world. HaShem has infinite ways at It's disposal for bringing that about. There need not be Armageddon.
