Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: The Dead Sea scrolls calls it the conflict between the Sons of Light and Sons of Darkness. We know it as a spiritual struggle between good and evil. Over the years, it has taken on many different identities, but the struggle remains the same. Which way should you go? There are no facts to set on, no escaping to the desert or a cave. The struggle is here. It is real, and we must deal with it. The Ben-Adon Scrolls tells the story of just such a struggle. It is the story of a people who are exposed to the tale of the first three years of the ministry of Jesus of Nazareth, his crucifixion, his resurrection, and his ascension. Everyone has the same information, but the reaction varies according to their background, their conscience, and the dictates of their upbringing. Pontius Pilate put the question to the chief priests when he freed Barabbas. "What then should I do with Jesus called Christ?" This question has come down through the ages. It has been confronted by Paupers, kings, and every other class of humanity. This book will help you define or redefine your answer to this most important question. Some of the characters are fictitious and some are real, but they will all be affected by the conflict of their day. This conflict is not over. It is just as present today as it was some 2,000 years ago, and everyone confronted by it. Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find.

Download or Read book The Dead Sea Scrolls: a Very Short Introduction written by Timothy Lim and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2017-03-23 with total page 144 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: Since their discovery in 1947, the Dead Sea Scrolls have become an icon in popular culture that transcends their status as ancient Jewish manuscripts. Everyone has heard of the Scrolls, but amidst the conspiracies, the politics, and the sensational claims, it can be difficult to separate the myths from the reality. In this Very Short introductions, Timothy Lim discusses the cultural significance of the finds, and the religious, political and legal controversies during the seventy years of study since the discovery. He also looks at the contribution the Scrolls have made to our understanding of the Old Testament or Hebrew Bible, and the origins of early Christianity. Exploring the most recent scholarly discussions on the archaeology of Khirbet Qumran, and the study of the biblical texts, the canon, and the history of the Second Temple Period, he considers what the scrolls reveal about sectarianism in early Judaism. Was the archaeological site of Qumran a centre of monastic life, a fortress, a villa, or a pottery factory? Why were some of their biblical texts so different from the ones that we read today? Did they have 'a Bible'? Who were the Essenes and why did they think that humanity is to be divided between 'the sons of light' and those in darkness? And, finally, do the Scrolls reflect the teachings of the earliest followers of Jesus? ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

Book excerpt/Synopsis: Yahusha came at the fullness of time or rather the time of the fulfillment of The Plan of Salvation written in the stars. He came to fulfill what is promised and written (LOGOS/DABAR) in The Heavenly Scroll on Earth “in the flesh”. Yahusha’s Message was the same as Yahuchanon/John the Immerser’s that we are to repent and follow The Way because The Kingdom proclaimed in The Heavenly Scroll is at hand as he came to fulfill it at just the right time. We have been blinded by tradition and religion to deny The Heavenly Scroll and commit what the Scriptures call the two evils by denying Yahusha was the fulfillment of ORION and AQUARIUS! The Bible is the story of The Battle of the Ages that plays out in the stars/constellations between ORION The Son of Man and The Dragon/Serpent. That battle then plays out on Earth and is documented from Genesis to Revelation. This battle between The Son of Man and The Dragon materializes in the personal life of Yahusha the Messiah as he is the fulfillment of ORION and AQUARIUS. This Battle plays out over the ages of mankind foretold in The Heavenly Scroll where the Messiah comes in the 4th Prophetic Day and The Dragon strikes his heel and he crushes the head of the Serpent. In the Gospel of Yahchanan/John we see that Yahusha ascends to read The Heavenly Mysteries (secrets preserved in The Heavenly Scroll Enoch 9:6) as confirmed by Daniyahel/Daniel (Chapter 7) and Yahchanan/John (in the Book of Revelation Chapter 5). We also see that Yahusha brought his knowledge of The Secret Divine Counsel, which is The Heavenly Scroll, with him in his ministry and that is what he taught exclusively (Matthew 4:16-17)! This book restores back to the Messiah his mission and his message and for the first time delivers an accurate rendition of his teachings which astonished every one who heard him speak. This book is the restoration of the Gospel of John bringing back to the text The Word of Yahuah's Testimony that Yahusha is the Messiah written in the stars and the Doctrine of Righteousness called The Way.

Book excerpt/Synopsis: Illuminated by the recently recovered Matthias Scroll, this novel provides the first-ever document-based account of Jesus’ life and death. When the disciples glorified Jesus’ crucifixion, Matthias swore their Gospels would not bury his friend beneath the cornerstone of their new religion. As Jesus’ companion for that last, fateful year (Acts I:21), he could not celebrate his death as a model of salvation. Instead, he would write a scroll telling what actually happened. Formatted as a suspenseful novel, The Matthias Scroll reveals hitherto unknown events leading to his arrest, crucifixion, and fully illuminating what happened during and after his interment. Exposed by fresh translations, recovered pearls of verifiable history are strung together, leading to a portrait of Jesus never before suspected. Against a background enlivened by sights and sounds of the Galilee, as well as Temple festivities in Jerusalem, the reader will meet many colorful New Testament characters, joining Jesus and the disciples in the epic drama. “Shaped with a deep sense of the history, this controversial but fascinating work offers a vivid portrayal of Jesus as a respected teacher of his generation, at the moment when Rabbinic Judaism and Christianity were born.”—Dr. Michael Berenbaum

Rather, it is a satire on Jewish life in the Diaspora. "Epstein’s argument stands all previous readings of Esther on their head” (Hillel Halkin, from the Preface).

Book excerpt/Synopsis: Jews and Latinos have been unlikely partners through tumultuous times. This groundbreaking, eclectic book of readings, edited by Ilan Stavans, whom The Washington Post described as "one of our foremost cultural critics," offers a sideboard of the ups and downs of that partnership. It includes some seventy canonical authors, Jews and non-Jews alike, through whose diverse oeuvre-poetry, fiction, theater, personal and philosophical essays, correspondence, historical documents, and even kitchen recipes-the reader is able to navigate the shifting waters of history, from Spain in the tenth century to the Spanish-speaking Americas and the United States today. The Reader showcases the writings of such notable authors as Solomon ibn Gabirol, Maimonides, Miguel de Cervantes, Henry W. Longfellow, Miguel de Unamuno, Federico García Lorca, Jorge Luis Borges, Jacobo Timerman, Mario Vargas Llosa, Ruth Behar, and Ariel Dorfman to name only a few.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: In the Select Second Edition of The Matthias Scroll, author Abram Epstein crosses linguistic hurdles illuminating the drama of Jesuss life and death, revealing hitherto unknown episodes that shaped his last eighteen months, leading to his capture, crucifixion, and interment. Exposed by fresh translations, gospel passages become recovered pearls of verifiable history, enabling us to meet the one so many have been seeking to know and appreciate as a human being. Lauded as fascinating and provocative by such prominent historians as Professors Michael Berenbaum and Shaul Magid, Epsteins linguistic excavations have now accomplished what is increasingly recognized as a major breakthrough in New Testament studies, recovering an altogether different, long-lost scroll from beneath the gospels doctrinal text. Much of the scriptural account, Epstein points out, has dramatized the supernatural Jesus, adding an aura of divine authority to his every word and deed, covering up history beneath layers of theological enhancement. Many have wondered what happened to the one betrayed by Judas, who later retreated to the Garden of Gethsemane, praying not to die, and was crucified for saying he was king of the Jews though no witnesses ever claimed he said such a thing about himself. With the excavated testimony of his friend and companion Matthias (Acts 1:21), we now have . . . Jesuss life as he would have remembered it.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: Suburbia may not seem like much of a place to pioneer, but for young, religiously committed Jewish families, it's open territory." This sentiment--expressed in the early 1970s by an Orthodox Jew in suburban Toronto--captures the essence of the suburban Orthodox Jewish experience of the late twentieth century. Although rarely associated with postwar suburbia, Orthodox Jews in metropolitan areas across the United States and Canada have successfully combined suburban lifestyles and the culture of consumerism with a strong sense of religious traditionalism and community cohesion. By their very existence in suburbia, argues Etan Diamond, Orthodox Jewish communities challenge dominant assumptions about society and religious culture in the twentieth century. Using the history of Orthodox Jewish suburbanization in Toronto, Diamond explores the different components of the North American suburban Orthodox Jewish community: sacred spaces, synagogues, schools, kosher homes, and social networks. In a larger sense, though, his book tells a story of how traditionalist religious communities have thrived in the most secular of environments. In so doing, it pushes our current understanding of cities and suburbs and their religious communities in new directions.
