The prophet Jeremiah, speaking in the name of YHWH said; “I will cause a Branch of righteousness to grow up to David.” That Branch is, of course, the Messiah. Through Jeremiah YHWH said that “at that time” when He would cause the Branch to spring up He would also take of David’s “seed to be rulers [plural] over the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.” In other words, it is prophesied that when Messiah would first come He would establish a Davidic administration for faithful Israel with Davidic “rulers” governing Israel under His Kingdom authority, after the pattern of the Davidic Kingdom as it had functioned from David forward. In this episode we will demonstrate from Scripture how this prophecy was fulfilled by Messiah and the “brothers of the Lord” in the first century.” New Testament” passages will be examined to learn how the brothers of the Lord functioned together under Messiah to “rule” the first century faithful remnant of Israel just as prophesied through Jeremiah. This truth is there, buried under a heap of self-perpetuating replacement theology and reinforced by subtle translation errors. You just have to know where to look for it. Now, after seventeen hundred years this truth is finally restored for the first time to those who will receive it – in this very program!
What do The Gospel of the Nazarenes, The Gospel According To The Hebrews and the original Hebrew Gospel Of Matthew have in common? According to “early church” writings they were all the same Gospel! This original Hebrew Gospel, said to be written by the Apostle Matthew, was used by the Hebrew-speaking believers into the fourth century. It was also used by early “Church Fathers” such as Jerome and Origen. Today this original Hebrew Matthew is gone, except for about 20 fragments contained in quotes from other early writers. What became of it? Amazingly, Cyril, a Roman Catholic Bishop, admitted to having BURNED it as heresy! What could the Apostle Matthew possibly have said that was so damaging to the Roman Church that they would burn an original Gospel from one of the Twelve Apostles? This mystery becomes clear in this episode of our program as we look into the suppressed truth about the Apostle, James the Just, known also as “brother of the Lord.”
