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.”
Since this seventh Biblical month is the time of year of Messiah’s birth we are focusing on exactly when “Christ” was born. These programs teaching the true time of Messiah’s birth will equip you to bear witness to the truth during the upcoming “Christmas Season.” Most modern reference works place Messiah’s birth sometime before 4 BC. This, despite the fact that the Gospel of Luke clearly indicates that Y’shua was born in 2 BC. The “Church Fathers” from the centuries immediately after the first century essentially agreed with Luke. Why this difference on the part of modern scholars? The answer to this puzzle all revolves around the first century priest-historian, Josephus. In this program we unravel the mystery for you that proves without a doubt that Luke was right about the year of Messiah’s birth! You will also thrill to learn how the “Star of Bethlehem” gives us astronomical evidence pinpointing the year of our Savior’s birth!
