You’ve heard of The Acts of the Apostles – but have you heard of The Acts of the Nazareans? Here at Tsiyon we have found that one needs to understand the Acts of the Nazareans to also fully grasp the Acts of the Apostles. By receiving the harmonious message of both you will get a fuller picture of the government of the “Early Church” of the first century. Oh, you haven’t heard of The Acts of the Nazareans? Then you really need to listen to this program! Some topics involved in this episode are: Commentary On The Acts Of The Church by Hegesippus, Jacob HaNasi father of Joseph the legal father of Yeshua the Messiah and Jacob’s brothers, Hizkiah and Judah and Hizkiah’s son Judah – all killed by Herod and the Romans as part of Herod’s personal war against the Davidic royal line. The early Nazareans, Y’shua’s family from Nazareth, that sheltered Joseph HaNasi and his twin brothers Ptolas and Clopas (Jacob’s sons by Cleopatra of Jerusalem), and later their families, away from the clutches of the Herodians. Meet the siblings of Christ: James the Just, Joseph, Simon and Jude – and also His sisters, Mary, Salome and Ann. Learn of the importance of Y’shua’s extended family including uncles and cousins, such as His cousin, Jesus of Gamala. Once and for all debunk the Holy Blood Holy Grail and Da Vinci Code nonsense about an alleged marriage of “Jesus and Mary Magdalene” and their alleged offspring. The Desposyni ARE NOT “offspring of Christ!” Learn who the desposyni really are and find out why you should care! Trust me – you SHOULD care! Don’t miss this program!
After His bodily resurrection Y’shua the Messiah appeared to many over a period of 40 days, before finally returning to His Father in Heaven. Everyone to whom He appeared after His resurrection was profoundly changed by the encounter. In this program we consider the eye-witness reports of some of those encounters from Mark and Luke, and draw important lessons from them. We also consider some fascinating historical information regarding the two talmidim / disciples whom the resurrected Messiah walked, taught and ate with in the Emmaus visitation. They were, in fact, Y’shua’s uncle Klofah / Clopas and his cousin, son of Clopas, Simon / Simeon / Shimon who became a great leader among the believers and was martyred at an advance age, still holding to his testimony of the resurrected Y’shua the Messiah. Though these witnesses had their flaws, as do we all, this world is not worthy of men and women like these!
