If your life is not in jeopardy for what you believe, you’re probably on the wrong side!

K’tuvim (Writings)

Deterocanonical (Apocryphal) Books
(Not in the either the Tanakh or “Protestant Canon”)

Kituvim (The Writings)

Ketuvei Schliachim[1]
(Writings of the Emissaries)


  1. I believe that the Ketuvei Schliachim, Writings of the Emissaries, or the Apostolic Writings, rightfully belong as part of the Kituvim. [RETURN]

  2. In an apparent effort to flatter the king who commissioned the 1611 English translation of the Bible, the “translators” arbitrarily changed the name of Messiah’s half-brother from Ya'akov to “James” (which they rendered as “Jacob” in the “Old Testament”) so the monarch could see his name in the Scriptures. The question needs to be asked, can we trust the accuracy of a translation in which the “translators” (who were not at all proficient in the Hebrew language) were specifically instructed to consider the traditions of the apostate Church of England of greater priority than accuracy of translations, and who place political favor above textual accuracy? [RETURN]

 3. Although the traditional understanding is that Yeshua had a three-year ministry, I believe that is was only one year. [RETURN]
