Well,I see from your email to me that you will have opened yourself to a bombardment of condemnatory emails, and the loss of support, from many of your followers that believe that Jesus Christ is God.
I read your article with much interest, I scrutinized it also, as you would expect as this is what we are commanded to do.
I set aside those quotations from Newton and others as they merely express their personal opinions and personal opinions do not a doctrine make. Doctrine must be built on scripture.
The book of Genesis (Bereshit or Beginnings) states that when God created man the Hebrew states:
ויאמר אלהים נעשה אדם בצלמנו כדמותנו וירדו בדגת הים ובעוף השמים ובבהמה ובכל־הארץ ובכל־הרמש הרמש על־הארץ (Genesis 1:26)
(adam naasseh elohim, way yo-mer kid-mu-te-nu; bel-sal-me-nu) "Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness..."
The question is, to whom is God speaking and why does He say, "let us make man in our image, according to our likeness."?
The answer is provided by the Apostle John:
Ἐν ἀρχῇ ἦν ὁ λόγος καὶ ὁ λόγος ἦν πρὸς τὸν θεόν καὶ θεὸς ἦν ὁ λόγος..... πάντα δι᾽ αὐτοῦ ἐγένετο καὶ χωρὶς αὐτοῦ ἐγένετο οὐδὲ ἕν ὃγέγονεν
en arche en ho Logos kai ho logos en pros ton Theon kai Theos en ho Logos.....panta di autou egeneto kaichoris autou egeneto oude hen ho gegenon
In (the) beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and God was the Word....All things through him emerged and without him emerged not even one (thing) that has emerged.
Later on we read :
Καὶ ὁ λόγος σὰρξ ἐγένετο καὶ ἐσκήνωσεν ἐν ἡμῖν καὶ ἐθεασάμεθα τὴν δόξαν αὐτοῦ δόξαν ὡς μονογενοῦς παρὰ πατρός πλήρης χάριτος καὶἀληθείας
kai hoLogos sarx egeneto kai eskenosen en hemin kai etheasametha ten doxan autou doxan hos monogenous para Patros pleres charitos kai aletheias
and the Word flesh became and dwelt among us and we beheld the glory of him, a glory as of an only only-begotten with a father full of grace and truth.
So we see that the man, Christ Jesus, had preexistence as the Word (Logos). John definitely prescribes personality to the Logos describing the Logos as "He"! John also declares the Logos to be God that became flesh living with men as the only begotten of the Father, born in this world of the virgin Mary.
When confronted by the risen Lord the Apostle Timothy worships Him and declares Him to be his God:
καὶ ἀπεκρίθη Ὁ Θωμᾶς καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὁ κύριός μου καὶ ὁ θεός μου
apekrithe thomas kai eipen auto Ho Kyrios mou kai ho Theos mou
answered Thomas and said to him, The Lord of me and the God of me!
We read various incidents where Jesus accepts worship from individuals (Matthew 14:33, 28:8-9; Mark 16:1; Luke 24:10)
And when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says, “AND LET ALL THE ANGELS OF GOD WORSHIP HIM.” (Hebrews 1:6).
Why would the angels be commanded to worship the Son if the Son was not divinity?
You see the dilemna? How are we to reconcile these scriptures with the idea that the Son of God had no pre-existence or that he had no divinity?
I look forward to your response, if you have the time or inclination to respond.

Dear Mr. Simon Brown, thank so much for researching this very important subject of the missing great rolling stone of the gospels and the Garden tomb in Jerusalem.
I am fascinated by the idea, to see the great rolling stone again in the garden tomb.
Surely it is not necessary for salvation to believe in this place, because we believe in Jesus Christ and not in holy sites and stones.
But it is very important to make sure our salvation in Christ and to know all the biblical and archaelogical facts of the salvation of Jesus Christ.
This knowledge about the gospel of Jesu Christ, the promises and the archaelogical biblical facts makes you really strong in the faith of Jesus Christ.
May bee the devil don´t want it, that s why disagreements arise.
This whole place of Golgatha, which is in front of the arabic busstation and the garden tomb fits perfectly all the biblical details.
This place is unique and there is no other place in Jerusalem, which fits so well to all the biblical details like the garden tomb.
It really makes me wonder, that the board of trustees of the gardentomb, don t welcome your good news of having found the great missing rolling stone.
It would be such a big blessing to have the great rolling stone back in the gardentomb.
Everybody sees it, that the great rolling stone of the gospels is missing. If it would return, it would be a sensation.
Now the numbers of the visitors are growing each year and they expect to brake the mark of 500.000 visitors each year.
But with the great missing rolling stone, they would easily go over half a million visitors each year.
Anyways I am on fire for the bringing back to the gardentomb the great rolling stone.
And if it is the will of God and the truth, it will happen.
Your brother in Christ, Veit from Germany

Subject: Re: New video: The PAGAN gods and The Catholic TRINITY.
You are out of your mind. Throughout the whole bible, we find three Persons: God the father, God the son, and God the Holy Spirit. They are three wonderful persons , but because they are in perfect harmony, they have one goal, one opinion and doctrine, therefore they are one and yet they are also three unique persons. At example, if you do not understand that the Holy Spirit is a wonderful Person , who loves, hates and grieves, then you know nothing about the Holy Spirit.
The difficult thing is, that the Holy Spirit, God the Father and Spirit of Jesus is everywhere.
No one knows God, but the Spirit, who is in God. It is the same thing with a man. Only the Spirit of the man knows, what is in the man. In John 14.6 and following Jesus said to Phillipus: Don´t you believe that the father is in me and I am in the father. Whoever sees me, sees the father. He speaks through me…
If you do not understand God, then don´t blaim other people, that they believe a heresy or deception.
It is biblical to proof everything and hold on to which is good.
May bee you have some bad books in your home, which need to be destroyed, because we all need sanctification. Satan himself disguises himself as an angel of light, and his prophets he sends out as prophets of righteousness. We are saved by Grace and the faith in Jesus Christ. You don´t have to go against everything to please God. God loves everybody out of grace, because Jesus made it.
We only have to live in faith that Jesus has finished a perfect salvation, a perfect remission of our sins and acceptance of the father. The Holy Bible and the Holy Spirit are our teachers. And we will be strong in the doctrine of Jesus Christ, if we read a lot the Scriptures and invite the Holy Spirit. Jesus said John 12 I am the light of the world, whoever believes in me, will not go into the darkness,
but will have the light of live. Now we shall live as new creatures in Christ. He shall grow in us, and we shall become smaller, till there is only Jesus in us.

As Jesus Christ was baptized by John the baptist in the Jordan river, the heavens opened and a voice came out of the cloud saying: This is my beloved son, in whom I am well pleased. Then the Holy Spirit came on Jesus like a dove. In this unique situation God showed up before the people in three persons: God the father, God the son and God the Holy Spirit.
God bless you, Veit
Excuse me Sir, but in this area you are blind.
I hope you will come to your senses. There are more then 1000 bibleverses saying that Jesus is God and the Holy Spirit is Lord.
Just use your concordance and look it all up.
I just read this morning a beautiful verse: 1. John 5:20 And we are in the true one, Jesus Christ the son of God. He is truly God and the eternal life.
We all know the famous bibleverses, which Jesus quoted as he preached in Nazaret his hometown:
Isaia 61. 1 The Spirit of God, who is Lord, is on me, because he has anointed me,...
Please don´t bother me anymore with this topic, because it is a big sin to mess around with the doctrin of God and Jesus Christ.

Subject: Alternate Perspectives
I just started an email to you and sneezed . . . depressing the send key. Sorry about that.
I stumbled into your blog with your concerns relative to the concept of a trinity or triune God. I take it that you are a seeker of truth and have no desire to enter into conflict over particular doctrines. It appears to me, however, that the topic you selected (the nature of God) is critical to our salvation or well being. I state this from the perspective that Christ admonished us to be perfect even as His Father which is in heaven. It is pretty difficult to become like someone if we do not understand who they are or what they are all about.
One of my goals established just prior to 2019 was to read the Old Testament in rapid fashion. While there is really no such thing as continuity in the Old Testament, I anticipated there would be some insights. Previous readings have been spread out over time and with a focus on individual components. If we continue to communicate, you will see that I am a detail person. So, a rapid read was a new thing for me.
Please allow me to provide some insights. In Genesis when it is stated that the Gods created. . . one gets a distinct impression that there is more than one God. The very word in Hebrew for God in the first few verses is Elohim or if you wish Eloheim. The "-him" or "-heim" suffix makes the singular El (god) into a plural. The Jews, of course, take this as a linguistic exception.
Please bear with me for a moment and let us assume that there is more than one God. Please let me push it a step further and state that God is a title of priesthood. Therefore, the "let us create man in our own image," is one God speaking to another with a proposal. Not only are there a minimum of two Gods dialoguing here but we are created in their image or to look like them.
We bounce along with the creation sequence with some difficulties as far as the scientific geological order of things, the placement of flora and fauna, and the creation of Adam. At some point after this lengthy account, we come to Genesis 2:5. This verse really messes up theologians. After the whole thing about creation and then it is stated that man was not found on the earth and it had not even rained.
Case in point. . . the Gods created the heavens and earth spiritually before it was created physically. By extension, the earth has a spirit and has received baptism by water and at the second coming of Christ will receive baptism by fire. And if we are all children of God, it makes sense that we would have had to be spiritually born by a Father God and Mother God.
In my last reading of the Old Testament, I came away with a real sense of how mother Earth feels about innocent blood being spilled into/onto her and the wickedness of mankind. With that thought, the Children of Israel are led out of Egypt and Jehovah, after they have gone whoring after other gods, tells them that He is the only God with which they have to deal. With emphasis, this is not to the exclusion of our Father in Heaven but only that the Children of Israel are to focus on Him , , , to the exclusion of pagan gods.
There are strong indications of the influence and actions of other Gods besides Jehovah in the Old Testament. If I have not tipped you over you can ask and I will supply references in context; and the context is critical.
Jesus Christ was the physical manifestation of Jehovah. The Jews were so entrenched in the belief that there was only one God that one of Christ's greatest challenges was to get them to realize we have a Father in Heaven (and He is a God). Christ was baptized by John the Baptist and a voice came out of heaven stating, "This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased." Ventriqualism? I think not.
There is the manifestation of yet another God at the Baptism of Christ and that is the arrival of the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit. She is manifest in the form of a dove. Yes, the Holy Spirit is a she and she is a member of the Godhead. At that point, however, God the Father has a body of flesh and bone and Christ has obtained His physical body and the Holy Spirit is left in her spirit form to function as a teacher, comforter, and testifier that Christ is the Son of God.
There are 112 references in the New Testament espousing that Jesus Christ is the Son of Man or the Son of God. If you pay special attention you will see there is a vein in which Christ is referred to as the Son of Man and yet another when He calls Himself or others call Him the Son of God. Compare and let me know if you can pick up the difference.
So, why is Christ's Father referred to as Man and Christ is the Son of Man? First off, it should be fairly obvious that Man is one of the names of our Father in Heaven. Thus we are mankind or after the order of our Father who bore us as spirits and whose name is Man.
Many of the Jews were livid over Christ proclaiming there was yet another God! This is one of the reasons they killed Him. Did Christ pray to Himself when His disciples requested that He teach them how to pray? What about on the Mount of Transfiguration? Was this Christ once again honing His ventraquilist skills? What about when Christ was on the cross and uttered. . . "Forgive them, Father, for they know not what they do." Or what about Stephen offering his testimony of having seen Christ seated next to His Father in Heaven? It made the Jews so angry they stoned him.
I have been at this email too long. Whether or not you wish to respond in length, would you please let me know that you received the email?
Thank you so much for the reply. I was dumbfounded at your response. If you took it that I believe in the Trinity or Triune concept of God, may I recommend a more careful read of what I wrote to you? I believe there are three separate and distinct individuals who function as Gods. There is God the Father; Jesus Christ, who was Jehovah in the spirit; and the Holy Spirit. Humanity was created in their image.
If an individual has questions as to why I believe the way I do, I am more than happy to provide references, interject logic, and look at the context in which a particular scripture was given. I, however, refuse to fight over interpretations. What I offer is done so only in the spirit of offering contemplation. No arguments. Just calm rational discussion. You do not have to agree with what I present but if you reject it, I would be anxious to understand why you do not accept it and be provided with an opportunity to offer supporting scriptures or logic for my position.
Looking forward to dialoguing. I will offer what I hope is some insight into the block of "arguments" you have presented.
I would agree with you that truth is truth and that with all the Christian sects there is much that is obfuscated. Much of the difficulty stems from the emphasis that is placed on one specific scripture. I have a process for evaluating and arriving at the intent God had/has for any specific scripture or body of scriptures. If, for example, it is stated in the Bible (to be more specific) the Old Testament, in the ten commandments, no less, that we are to have no other gods before us.
My first question is: "Is the passage translated correctly?" My second question is: "What is the context in which this scripture has been presented?" Next, I look to see if there are other scriptures by the same author/prophet preferably in the same chapter. My next step is potentially shaky ground but I ask if the scripture could be metaphorical or literal or have the potential to be both. It is often worthwhile to consult commentaries to see what others have to say and hopefully they support their position. Next, accumulate scriptures of the same vein and weigh them against each other.
So, let us take the example you provided in your first response to my email. God's commandment to Moses for the Children of Israel. They were commanded to have no other gods before them.
1) Viability of the translation? Since the 10 commandments are found in several different blocks of scripture and read essentially the same, I am willing to accept that the translation is sufficient to convey the intent of God. It also helps that in the conversation Christ had with the wealthy young man He referred to the traditions of the law i.e. the 10 commandments.
2) What is the context? If you read the Bible carefully you will note that Moses came down off the mount to find the Children of Israel in idolatry. They had been in Egypt for 400 years and picked up some bad habits. Moses returned to find the Children of Israel worshiping a golden calf they had pressed Aaron into making. Moses in anger thrust down the tablets destroying them and returned up into the mount. Moses returned with another set of tablets on which the 10 commandments were scribed. Will a god of stone or wood get a person close to the true God? Can a god of wood, metal, or stone perform miracles intended to demonstrate the viability of God? When the Children of Israel entered the Holy Land they were instructed to present an option for any of the people living there to accept them and live by the Law of Israel. If they accepted . . . fine. If they would not accept that offer, God commanded to tear down the groves (locations of idol worship), destroy representations of local gods, destroy the pagan people, and even destroy their animals. They did not obey and this cost them dearly over the years. Why was it so important that the people not worship other gods? Let's take the worship of Molech or Baal. An idol of a good size was cast into iron. It had its arms folded and was hollowed out in the back so a fire could be stoked in it which would heat it up to incandesce. To be able to worship this god individuals would have sex with priests or priestesses and it was also a swingers club where couples would mix. Babies born of the relations were cast into the folded arms of Molech in a ceremony at which point they were killed by the heat of the idol. Anytime in the Old Testament when you read the expression, "pass through the fire," this is what is being referred to. Little wonder the true God did not want His children to participate in the evil of the pagans of the region. This interpretation (at least in my opinion) is reinforced through the Old Testament. The Children of Israel's capture and deportation to Babylon was a result of their failure to obey the commandment of having other gods.
3) Other scriptures that support this context? See #2 above.
4) Metaphorical or literal? The context in which this scripture was given and the resulting departure with historical and archeological evidence is sufficient to convince me that this commandment was literal.
5) Simon, I will leave the last component of my process to you. Please establish a spreadsheet and divide it into two columns. On one side place the heading as "Scriptures that support the idea of more than one God." On the other side head it "Scripture that Supports the idea of a single God only. As you perform this exercise, I would ask that you are entirely honest with yourself. The account of Christ's baptism where a voice came from heaven. . . whose voice was this? The symbol of the Dove. . . what was this to represent? Same for the Transfiguration. . . When Christ is praying, to whom is He praying? When Christ proclaimed that He and the Father are One, could it mean that they are one in purpose, one in intent, of the same glory, etc.? Does it make sense that we can become one with our spouses? If yes, does that mean we merge into one person or is this metaphorical? If you elect to perform this exercise, let me know how it turns out for you?
The Bible can only make sense when one takes the position that when Christ states, "His Father, which is in heaven" . . . is that He has a Father which is in Heaven. If you cannot accept this, then please explain to me what meaning the Savior intended.
It occurred to me as I was contemplating how you would receive what I sent to you that I had left out crucial steps.
It is worthwhile to insert prayer. God really does wish us to know the truth.
Thank you for the response and your interest in the status of my soul. May God bless you abundantly.

Simon (Brown), It seems like you are still an unbeliever as to JESUS BEING THE LIVING WORD OF GOD, THE FATHER , Therefore GOD, THE SON. If so, you are misleading others as well.
You sound so very good and sincere but YOU STILL ARE LEAVING OUT SCRIPTURAL TRUTH ! !
NAMELY JOHN 1:1,18 , 5:23 , 20:28 , 1ST JOHN 5:20 and other Scriptures as well.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the (Word was God).
No man hath seen God at any time; the (only begotten Son), which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
footnote comments: regarding the term (only begotten Son) (the oldest manuscripts have (MONO-GENES THEOS - Only Begotten God)
And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, (even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life).
That all men should honour the Son, (even as - timao, koine greek word meaning, in the same way) they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.
The FATHER is GOD, (EVEN AS- MEANING TO HONOR IN THE SAME WAY ) THE SON IS GOD.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, (The Living Word of The Father) that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
JESUS ASKED THE QUESTION OF QUESTIONS. WHOM DO MEN SAY I THE SON OF MAN AM?
Matthew 16:13 ¶ When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?
And Thomas answered and said unto him (Jesus), My Lord and my God. Thomas being a Jewish follower of JESUS knew and believed Deuteronomy 6:4 .
Hear, שָׁמַע O Israel: יִשְׂרָאֵל The LORD יְהֹוָה our God אֱלֹהִים is one אֶחָד LORD: Yet , Thomas confessed Jesus as his LORD AND HIS GOD. And you (Simon) will not Confess him as your Lord and God. It is Evident that you are saying that you know better than Thomas The Apostle. Sadly though, you are also misleading others in not Honoring The SON in the same way as they Honor The Father who has sent his SON, who is THE LIVING PERSONAL WORD OF GOD THE FATHER ! !
See Isaiah 55:11
Isa 55:11 (So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth): it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. (KJV)
Simon, if your not HONORING The FATHER'S SON AS GOD (HE IS THE VERY WORD OF GOD THE FATHER), THEN YOU ARE NOT HONORING THE SON IN THE SAME WAY, BECAUSE HIS FATHER IS GOD.
It is like your Father's last name is Brown, but people will not acknowledge you as having the last name Brown. Therefore not giving you the proper honor and respect that your Father wants people call you, Therefore Acknowledging Truly you are the Son of Your Father whose last name is Brown.
So if you are still saying YESHUA (JESUS) THE Messiah, is not GOD, WHO IS THE SON OF THE FATHER, GOD, YOU ARE DOING THE SAME AS THE PEOPLE WHO WILL NOT ACKNOWLEDGE YOU WITH THE LAST NAME OF BROWN TO THE DISMAY OF YOUR FATHER.
P.S. Before I Close, I just noticed a couple of statements you made thusly.
"Dear friends, just to remind you, as I am a human being, (I am capable of making mistakes). If you believe I am wrong, don't let it go, but please be kind and let me know". ALSO
"From 2019 I now no longer believe Jesus Pre-Existed His flesh", YOU SURE ARE MAKING A MAJOR MISTAKE ON THIS ONE.
JESUS SAID John 8:24
I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that (I am, - ego eimi), two koine greek words that say, I HAVE ALWAYS EXISTED) , ye shall die in your sins. The word (he) that follows (I Am) is not in the original manuscript. The (He) was added referring to MESSIAH.
In John 1:1, third phrase in original Koine Greek, the words are: (kai (Theos) en ho logos) the phrase is in the nominative case. This says kai (THEOS) with no definite article before THEOS making THEOS A Predicate Adjective, which describes The Quality of THE WORD, (LOGOS). The little word (en) imperfect tense, says THE WORD IN THE PAST HAS ALWAYS EXISTED, THE WORD OF THE FATHER IS ETERNAL.
And (the Word was made flesh), and dwelt among us,and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the (only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
In plain English, THE WORD IN THE PAST HAS ALWAYS EXISTED, THEN THE WORD BECAME FLESH AND DWELT AMONG THE JEWS OF ISRAEL.
Simon, THE WORD SAYS IN JOHN 8:24 UNLESS YOU BELIEVE JESUS IS THE I AM WHO HAS ALWAYS EXISTED, YOU WILL DIE IN YOUR SINS.
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other (name -character) under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Simon, Your Soul is in Jeopardy ! ! Something to consider ? ?
Simon thank you for your reply. Your reasoning is informative which also tells me you are building on (Another Foundation which THE WORD OF GOD DOES NOT TEACH). It is evident you misunderstand what the Koine Greek is trying to tell you.
This explanation of yours is in error because there are not Two Gods.
You are saying GOD THE FATHER IS ONE GOD also THE WORD IS GOD, MAKING TWO GODS. Your reasoning parallels why the Jews in Jesus' day rejected him. They believed he was violating Deuteronomy 6:4. "hear o Yisrael The Lord Our GOD is One. They believed as as you have stated below, Two Gods, Thou being a man makest thyself GOD.
However, this is impossible, because that would mean the word is also a TRUE GOD, like GOD the Father which would mean we have TWO TRUE GODS side by SIDE, instead of ONE TRUE GOD, contradicting the word of GOD.
Your thinking here is in error. In Genesis first chapter ELOHIYM created the heavens and the earth. How did he do that? He spoke them into existence through His Word. Psalm 33:6 says By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. John 1:2 The Word was in the beginning with God. John 1:3 All things were made through the Word; and without the Word was not any thing made that was made. So All things created came by and through the Word of THE FATHER.
Were there Two GODS at work here? Absolutely Not. Only through THE FATHERS WORD ALL THINGS CAME INTO BEING. And you say "THE FATHERS WORD IS NOT GOD". YOU FAIL TO HONOR THE FATHER'S WORD AS (ALL) THINGS THROUGH THE WORD OF THE GOD CAME INTO BEING. In Genesis, ELOHIYM the Creator, plural word for The One GOD. John 5:23 That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. Simon, you are to HONOUR THE SON even as (in the same way) as those who HONOUR THE FATHER.
IF THE FATHER IS GOD SO IS HIS WORD AS THIRD PHRASE IN JOHN 1:1 STATES ( YOU HAVE STATED THE WORD IS NOT GOD THEREFORE YOU ARE DISHONORING HIS SON). Two other verses you might consider is: Matthew 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, The God with us. 1John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, (even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life).
Scripture says Jesus Christ is (the true GOD and Eternal Life). See also John 17:3 As mentioned before I believe you are building on another Foundation THE WORD OF GOD DOES NOT TEACH , YOU SEEM TO KNOW MORE THAN THE APOSTLE THOMAS AS HE CONFESSED JESUS TO BE HIS LORD AND HIS GOD. It was not just a modern day expression of surprise, As a believing Jew he knew what Deuteronomy 6:4 said. Again, Thank you for your reply. No doubt we stand on two Different Foundations. The Question of Questions. Jesus asked, WHO DO MEN SAY THAT I AM ? Peters reply, “thou art the Christ, The Son of The Living God."

Hi Simon, Hope this finds you well. Another odd question for
I've often wondered how our modern ears would hear the name
"Jesus" in Aramaic/Amharic if we were to were to travel back in time
and hear it,
for example, to hear him being called by name by his
There is this site,
where you can type in "Jesus" and hear how it sounds, by typing in
which is the literal translation in Amharic...
But do you have a better/more accurate site I can use that
more closely represents how his name would sound to our ears today - along with
other passages of the bible?

Thanks much Simon for the quick reply!
It is indeed a mystery but it seems so much of our catholic
history contains a fair bit of mystery, but that’s why it’s so intriguing, eh?
I strongly believe you’ve made some serious claims that even
secular historians should pause over with care. It’s location and multiple
parallels to facts stated/supported by the gospel accounts truly make it a
one-of-a-kind find. I think second only to the grail itself, or perhaps the
tomb of Mary, mother of Jesus. Do you have an opinion on where her final
resting place may be? Some say France.

Enjoyed the 2hrs special on YouTube. One thing I didnt quite
Emma/the video mentions that there appears to be evidence of
early Byzantine church/worshipers,
so why wouldn't the Byzantines have simply stayed put and
continually worshiped in this location
instead of abandoning the tomb and moving the tombstone 25
One would expect they would have at least tried to remain at
the holy site and build up a church around it
similarly to what has been in place for 1,000+ years at the
site of the church of the Holy Sepulchre?
That was the only bit that struck me as odd.
