Discern and Understand the Books
The AHAV New Testament Bible Project does not alter Hebrew, Aramaic, or Greek texts, but rather amplifies substratum relationships and definitions within primary language. For example, “righteous” is derived from the Hebrew “tsadiq” (tsadi dalet yud qof), making the beautiful Ancient Hebrew word picture:
“Journey to the Door of Eternity“
“Righteousness” is an attribute and key identifier of the prophetic Work of Mashiyach (Messiah) and His followers. It would be absurd to say that Yeshua (Jesus) was “cleared,” or “justified.” He was sinless. In reality, Messiah is “the journey” to the door of eternity.
Context and definition are everything when it comes to communication and understanding. How do we define “love” to a child who never heard of it? It’s impossible to define “love” in one word; so, we instinctively “amplify” a definition with more words to draw out the meaning. Scripture provides much greater tools.
For example, “Shimon bar Yonah” was given the Aramaic name “Keefa,” which was transliterated to “Cephas,” then translated to “Petros,”and then “Peter.” Matthew 16:18 reads, “…you are Keefa, and on this keefa (rock) I will build My assembly.” Mark 12:10 reads, “…The keefa (rock) the builders rejected has become the head cornerstone,” quoted from Psalm 118:22. This makes a prophetic connection to Genesis 49:24, “the Shepherd, the Stone (Eben) of Israel,” Who is Mashiyach (Messiah). “Peter” is the first person of record to identify Yeshua (Jesus) as the long awaited Stone (Eben) of Israel, the Mashiyach (Messiah), fulfilling dozens of prophetic “rock” keefa or “stone” eben connections in Scripture.
The mind of Mashiyach (Messiah) that precipitated giving Shimon the name Keefa established countless connections from the Old into the New Testament Scripture, sealing the authenticity of the Good News. The original “mind” of New Testament writers bridges and unites Old and New by way of prophetic continuum. This Spiritual unity between Old and New Testament also exposes religious ideologies and theological traditions that fail to recognize and connect many of the most awesome prophetic patterns.
