Quest for Original
New Testament Spirituality
The AHAV Bible Project is headed by Baruch Ben Daniel (Baruch) and his wife Adele; along with a team of Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek, Bible students and scholars.
The AHAV Bible Project team has invested countless study and research hours in ancient manuscripts, fragments, and inscriptions, throughout Israel and the Middle East. While publishing an Aramaic to English Bible, based on 5th Century Syrian Christian Aramaic manuscripts, Baruch garnered a plethora of tools to identify translation irregularities, redaction, nuances of dialect, and inconsistencies of terms and definitions, etc.
Baruch Ben Daniel
Baruch’s patriarchal line hails from the Gorovenko (Horodenka) clan from Ukraine. In 1893, his great-grandfather Mikhael joined the Christian faith; he was buried in a Jewish cemetery in Ukraine. In 1946, his grandfather Lazarus began studying Hebrew origins of Christianity; in 1962 he moved to Israel but returned to Canada. On Baruch’s maternal side, his grandmother Zelma Zimmerman was a German Jewish immigrant from Austria; she married into the flamboyant Christian clan of missionary Ezra Meeker, a pioneer of the Oregon Trail.
From his early teen years, Baruch was led to grow his faith in God and Scripture through studying Hebrew spirituality within the New Testament. Since the 90’s, Baruch has published hundreds of online articles about the Kingdom of Heaven. From 2008-2019, he published a 5th Century Syrian Christian Aramaic to English New Testament. In 2016-2017, he developed a software application to analyze Aramaic and Greek NT texts, trace terms, “back-translate,” and provide definitions, according to original Hebrew and Galilean Aramaic origins.
Adele hails from English and German Jewish ancestry. At the age of eleven her family joined the Messianic Jewish community in Richmond, Virginia. Adele has been a student of Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic for many years. She committed the New Testament and a number of Old Testament books to memory.
Adele is currently producing a publication entitled “Architecture of Biblical Hebrew” to facilitate independent study of Scripture through Ancient Hebrew. She is now completing a glossary of Hebrew terms and definitions for the AHAV Bible based on Hebrew and Aramaic spoken by Yeshua (Jesus), Paul, and the Apostles.
