The Original Language of the New Testament

We have always been taught that the "New Testament" was originally written in Greek.  However, there is a growing movement that suggests that it was originally written in Hebrew and/or Aramaic (the same language as the "Old Testament"). So, which is right? Here is an interesting article by Jeff Benner on the subject: Archaeological Evidence … Continue reading The Original Language of the New Testament

Restored English Translation of Genesis: Chapter 11

Here is my Restored English Translation (RET) of the 10th chapter of the Book of Genesis (Hebrew: Beresheet).  As usual, it contains the Hebrew names and a glossary of them after the chapter.  As I don't believe in the Aleph/Tavs any more, I have included a separate section at the very end showing where the Aleph/Tavs appear … Continue reading Restored English Translation of Genesis: Chapter 11

Dinosaurs: Extinct or Not?

The Canon of Scripture, Part 4: The Other Books of Baruch

[Note: I am rebooting this series to always include links to the texts discussed, whether or not I accept them.  The previous three articles have had these links added.] The canon of Scripture is a settled issue, isn’t it? You’ve got your 66 books total, 39 in the Old Testament (24 by the Jewish counting) … Continue reading The Canon of Scripture, Part 4: The Other Books of Baruch

Restored English Translation of Genesis: Chapter 9

Here is my Restored English Translation (RET) of Beresheet (Genesis) chapter 9.  As usual, it contains the Hebrew names and the Aleph Tavs (although I now doubt them).  A glossary of the Hebrew names used can be found at the end. This chapter contains the infamous incident of Noah getting drunk, and Ham spotting him.  This incident … Continue reading Restored English Translation of Genesis: Chapter 9
