The Besorah According To Mark Yochanan Moshe-To All Nations
1 The beginning of The Besorah of YAHUSHA The Moshiach, The Son of YHUH;
2 As it is written in the neviim, See, I send My messenger, who shall prepare the derech before Me.
3 The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare you the derech of The Master YHUH, make His paths straight.
4 Yochanan did mikvah in the wilderness and proclaimed the mikvah of teshuvah for the remission of sins.
5 And there went out to him all the land of Yahudah and those of Yahrushalayim and were all immersed by him in the river of Yarden, confessing their sins.
6 And Yochanan was clothed with goatskin and with a leather girdle around his loins; and he did eat locusts and wild honey;
7 And proclaimed, saying, There comes One mightier than I after me, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to stoop down and loosen.
8 I indeed have immersed you with mayim: but He shall mikvah you with The Ruach Hakodesh.
9 And it came to pass in those yamim that YAHUSHA came from Natzeret of Galil and was immersed of Yochanan in the Yarden.
10 And immediately coming up out of the mayim, He saw the shamayim opened and The Ruach like a yonah descending upon Him:
11 And there came a voice from the shamayim, saying, You are My beloved Son, in whom I AM well pleased.
12 And immediately The Ruach drove Him into the wilderness.
13 And He was there in the wilderness forty yamim, tempted by s.a.tan; and was with the wild beasts; and the heavenly malachim attended to Him.
14 Now after Yochanan was put in prison, YAHUSHA came into Galil, proclaiming The Besorah of the malchut of YHUH,
15 And saying,The time is fulfilled and the malchut of YHUH is at hand: make teshuvah and believe The Besorah.
16 Now as He walked by the Sea of Galil, He saw Shimon and Andri his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishermen.
17 And YAHUSHA said to them, Follow Me and I will make you to become fishers of men.
18 And immediately they forsook their nets and followed Him.
19 And when He had gone a little further, He saw Yaakov the son of Zavdi and Yochanan his brother, who also were in the boat mending their nets.
20 And immediately He called them: and they left their abba Zavdi in the boat with the hired avadim and went after Him.
21 And they went into Kfar Nachum; and immediately on all The Shabbats He entered into the synagogue and taught.
22 And they were astonished at His teaching: for He taught them as one that had authority and not as the Sophrim.
23 And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean ruach; and he cried out,
24 Saying, Leave us alone; what have we to do with You, YAHUSHA of Natzeret? Have You come to destroy us? I know You who You are, the Kadosh-One of YHUH.
25 And YAHUSHA rebuked him, saying, Be silent and come out of him.
26 And when the unclean ruach had torn him and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him.
27 And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? What new teaching is this? For with authority He commands even the shedim and they do obey Him.
28 And immediately His fame spread abroad throughout all the regions all around about Galil.
29 And immediately, when they were come out of the synagogue, they entered into the bayit of Shimon and Andri, with Yaakov and Yochanan.
30 But Shimon’s isha’s eema lay sick of a fever and immediately they told Him about her.
31 And He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up; and immediately the fever left her and she attended to them.
32 And at evening, when the shemesh did set, they brought to Him all that were diseased and them that were possessed with shedim.
33 And the entire city was gathered together at the door.
34 And He healed many that were sick of different diseases and expelled many shedim; and allowed not the shedim to speak because they knew Him.
35 And in the boker, rising up a great while before yom, He went out and departed into a solitary place and there made tefillah.
36 And Shimon and they that were with Him followed after Him.
37 And when they had found Him, they said to Him, All the men of Yisrael seek for You.
38 And He said to them, Let us go into the next towns that I may proclaim there also: for therefore came I forth.
39 And He proclaimed in their synagogues throughout all Galil and expelled shedim.
40 And there came a leper to Him, beseeching Him and kneeling down to Him and saying to Him, If You will, You can make me clean.
41 And YAHUSHA, moved with rachamim, put out His hand and touched him and said to him, I will; be clean.
42 And as soon as He had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him and he was cleansed.
43 And He strictly ordered him and immediately sent him away;
44 And said to him, See you say nothing to any man: but go your derech, show yourself to the kohen and offer for your cleansing those things which Moshe commanded, for a testimony to them.
45 But he went out and began to greatly publish it and to spread abroad the matter, insomuch that YAHUSHA could no more openly enter into the city, but was outside in desert places: and they came to Him from every quarter.
2 And again He entered into Kfar Nachum, after some yamim; and it became known that He was in the bayit.
2 And immediately many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not even around the door: and He proclaimed the word to them.
3 And they came to Him, bringing one sick of the palsy, who was carried by four men.
4 And when they could not come near to Him for the press, they removed the roof where He was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the quilt where the sick of the palsy lay.
5 When YAHUSHA saw their emunah, He said to the sick of the palsy, Son, your sins are forgiven you.
6 But there were certain of the Sophrim sitting there and reasoning in their levavot,
7 Why does this man speak blasphemies like this? Who can forgive sins but YHUH only?
8 And immediately when YAHUSHA perceived in His Ruach that they so reasoned within themselves, He said to them, Why do you reason these things in your levavot?
9 Which is easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Your sins are forgiven you; or to say, Arise and take up your quilt and walk?
10 But that you may know that The Ben Ahdahm has Power on earth to forgive sins, He said to the sick of the palsy,
11 I say to you, Arise and take up your quilt and go your derech into your bayit.
12 And immediately he arose, took up the quilt and went out before them all; so that they were all amazed and esteemed YHUH, saying, We never saw anything like this.
13 And He went out again by the seaside; and all the multitudes came to Him and He taught them.
14 And as He passed by, He saw Lewi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax office and said to him, Follow Me. And he arose and followed Him.
15 And it came to pass, that, as YAHUSHA sat at meat in his bayit, many tax collectors and sinners sat also together with YAHUSHA and His talmidim: for there were many and they followed Him.
16 And when the Sophrim and Prushim saw Him eat with tax collectors and sinners, they said to His talmidim, How is it that He eats and drinks with tax collectors and sinners?
17 When YAHUSHA heard it, He said to them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are seriously sick: I came not to call the tzadikim, but sinners to make teshuvah.
18 And the talmidim of Yochanan and of the Prushim used to fast: and they came and said to Him, Why do the talmidim of Yochanan and of the Prushim fast, but Your talmidim fast not?
19 And YAHUSHA said to them, Can the children of the Bridegroom fast, while the Bridegroom is with them? As long as they have the Bridegroom with them, they cannot fast.
20 But the yamim will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them and then shall they fast in those yamim.
21 No man also sews a piece of new cloth on an old garment: otherwise the new piece that filled it up takes away from the old and the tear is made worse.
22 And no man puts new wine into old wineskins: or else the new wine bursts the wineskins and the wine is spilled and the wineskins will be ruined: but new wine must be put into new wineskins.
23 And it came to pass, that He went through the cornfields on The Shabbat; and His talmidim began, as they went, to pluck the ears of grain.
24 And the Prushim said to Him, See, why do they do on The Shabbat yom that which is not allowed?
25 And He said to them, Have you never read what Dawid did, when he had need and was hungry, he and they that were with him?
26 How he went into the Bayit of The Master YHUH while Aviathar was Kohen HaGadol, and ate the Lechem of the Presence, which is not lawful to eat except for the kohanim and gave also to them that were with him?
27 And He said to them, The Shabbat was made for man and not man for The Shabbat:
28 Therefore The Ben Ahdahm is Master also of The Shabbat.
3 And He entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there who had a withered hand.
2 And they watched Him, whether He would heal him on The Shabbat; that they might accuse Him.
3 And He said to the man that had the withered hand, Stand up.
4 And He said to them, Is it lawful to do tov on The Shabbat, or to do evil? To save chayim, or to kill? But they held their silence.
5 And when He had looked all around them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their levavot, He said to the man, Stretch out your hand! And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.
6 And the Prushim went out and immediately took counsel with the Herodians against Him, how they might destroy Him.
7 But YAHUSHA withdrew Himself with His talmidim to the sea: and a great multitude from Galil followed Him and from Yahudah,
8 And from Yahrushalayim and from Idumaea and from beyond Yarden; and those around Tsor and Tsidon, a great multitude, when they had heard what great things He did, came to Him.
9 And He spoke to His talmidim, that a small boat should wait for Him because of the multitude, lest they should throng Him.
10 For He had healed many; so that they pressed upon Him to touch Him, as many as had plagues.
11 And unclean ruachim, when they saw Him, fell down before Him and cried, saying, You are The Son of YHUH.
12 And He strictly ordered them that they should not make Him known.
13 And He went up into a har and called to Him whom He would: and they came to Him.
14 And He ordained twelve, that they should be with Him and that He might send them out to proclaim,
15 And to have Power to heal sicknesses and to expel shedim:
16 And Shimon He surnamed Kefa;
17 And Yaakov the son of Zavdi and Yochanan the brother of Yaakov; and He surnamed them B’nai Regash, which is, The Sons of Thunder:
18 And Andri and Philip and Bar-Talmai and Mattityahu and Toma and Yaakov the son of Alphai and Thaddai and Shimon the Zealot,
19 And Yahudah from Qerioth, who also betrayed Him: and they went into a bayit.
20 And the multitude came together again, so that they could not so much as eat lechem.
21 And when His relatives heard it, they went out to seize Him: for they said, He is out of His mind.
22 And the Sophrim that came down from Yahrushalayim said, He has Baal-Zevuv and by the sar of the shedim He casts out shedim.
23 And He called them to Him and said to them in parables, How can s.a.tan expel s.a.tan?
24 And if a malchut is divided against itself, that malchut cannot stand.
25 And if a bayit is divided against itself, that bayit cannot stand.
26 And if s.a.tan rise up against himself and be divided, he cannot stand, but has an end.
27 No man can enter into a strong man’s bayit and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his bayit.
28 Truly I say to you, All sins shall be forgiven to the sons of men and whatever blasphemies they shall blaspheme:
29 But he that shall blaspheme against The Ruach Hakodesh has no forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:
30 Because they said, He, YAHUSHA, has an unclean ruach.
31 There came then His brothers and His eema and, standing outside, sent to Him, calling Him.
32 And the multitude sat around Him and they said to Him, See, Your eema and Your brothers outside seek for You.
33 And He answered them, saying, Who is My eema, or who are My Yisraelite brothers?
34 And He looked all around to those who sat around Him and said; See My eema and My Yisraelite brothers!
35 For whoever shall do the will of YHUH, the same is My brother and My sister and eema.
4 And He began again to teach by the seaside: and there was gathered to Him a great multitude, so that He entered into a boat and sat in the sea; and the whole multitude was by the sea on the land.
2 And He taught them many things by parables and said to them in His teaching,
3 Shema; See, there went out a sower to sow:
4 And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the wayside and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up.
5 And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up because it had no depth of earth:
6 But when the shemesh was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away.
7 And some fell among thorns and the thorns grew up and choked it and it yielded no fruit.
8 And some fell on tov ground and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought out, some thirty and some sixty and some a hundred.
9 And He said to them, He that has ears to hear, let him hear.
10 And when He was alone, the twelve that were with Him, asked Him about the parable.
11 And He said to them, To you it is given to know the sod of the malchut of YHUH: but to them that are outside, all these things are done in parables:
12 That seeing they may see and not perceive; and hearing they may hear and not understand; lest at any time they should do teshuvah and their sins should be forgiven them.
13 And He said to them, Don’t you know this parable? And how then will you know all other parables?
14 The sower sows the Word.
15 And these are they by the wayside, where the Word is sown; but when they have heard, s.a.tan comes immediately and takes away the Word that was sown in their levavot.
16 And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the Word, immediately receive it with gilah;
17 And have no root in themselves and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction, or persecution arises for the Word’s sake, immediately they are offended.
18 And these are those that are sown among thorns; such as hear the Word,
19 And the cares of this olam hazeh and the deceitfulness of riches and the desires for other things entering in, choke the Word and it becomes unfruitful.
20 And these are they which are sown on tov ground; such as hear the Word and receive it and bring out fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty and some a hundred.
21 And He said to them, Is a candle brought to be put under a bushel, or under a bed? And not to be set on a menorah?
22 For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad.
23 If any man has ears to hear, let him hear.
24 And He said to them, Take heed what you hear: with what measure you use, it shall be measured to you: and to you that hear shall more be given.
25 For he that has, to him shall be given: and he that has not, from him shall be taken even that which he has.
26 And He said, So is the malchut of YHUH, as if a man should cast zera into the ground;
27 And should sleep and rise lyla and yom and the zera should spring and grow up, he knows not how.
28 For the earth brings out fruit by itself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full grain in the ear.
29 But when the fruit is brought out, immediately he puts in the sickle because the harvest is come.
30 And He said, To what shall we compare the malchut of YHUH ? Or, with what comparison shall we compare it?
31 It is like a grain of mustard zera, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the zera that be in the earth:
32 But when it is sown, it grows up and becomes greater than all herbs and shoots out great Netzarim-Branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.
33 And with many such parables He spoke the word to them, as they were able to listen to it.
34 But without a parable He spoke not to them: and when they were alone, He expounded all things to His talmidim.
35 And the same yom, when the evening was come, He said to them, Let us pass over to the other side.
36 And when they had sent away the multitude, they took Him along as He was in the boat. And there were also with Him other little ships.
37 And there arose a great storm of wind and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was now full.
38 And He was in the stern, asleep on a cushion: and they woke Him and said to Him, Rabbi, don’t You care that we perish?
39 And He arose and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, Shalom, be still. And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.
40 And He said to them, Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no emunah?
41 And they feared exceedingly and said one to another, What manner of Man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey Him?
5 And they came over to the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes.
2 And when He was come out of the boat, immediately there met Him out of the tombs a man with an unclean ruach,
3 Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, not even with chains:
4 Because he had often been bound with shackles and chains and had pulled the chains apart and the shackles he had broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him.
5 And always, lyla and yom, he was in the mountains and in the tombs, crying and cutting himself with stones.
6 But when he saw YAHUSHA far off, he ran and worshipped Him,
7 And cried with a loud voice and said, What have I to do with You, YAHUSHA: You, Son of El-Elyon? I ask You by YHUH, that You torment me not.
8 For He said to him, Come out of the man, you unclean ruach.
9 And He asked him, What is your name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.
10 And he begged Him much that He would not send them away out of the country.
11 Now there was there near to the mountains a great herd of pigs feeding.
12 And all the shedim begged Him, saying, Send us into the pigs, that we may attack them.
13 And immediately YAHUSHA gave them leave. And the unclean ruachim went out and attacked the pigs: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, they were about two thousand; and were choked in the sea.
14 And they that fed the pigs fled and told it in the city and in the country. And they went out to see what it was that was done.
15 And they came to YAHUSHA and saw him that was possessed with the s.a.tan and had the legion, sitting and clothed and in his right mind: and they were afraid.
16 And they that saw it told them what happened to him that was possessed with the s.a.tan and also concerning the pigs.
17 And they began to beg Him to depart out of their coasts.
18 And when He was come into the boat, he that had been possessed with the shed begged that he might go with Him.
19 But YAHUSHA allowed it not, but said to him, Go home to your chaverim and tell them what great things The Master YHUH has done for you and how He has had rachamim on you.
20 And he departed and began to publish in Dekapolis how great things YAHUSHA had done for him: and all men did marvel.
21 And when YAHUSHA had passed over again by boat to the other side, many people gathered to Him: and He was near to the sea.
22 And, see, there came one of the shamashim of the synagogue, Yair by name; and when he saw Him, he fell at His feet,
23 And begged Him greatly, saying, My little daughter lies at the point of death: I beg you, come and lay Your hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live.
24 And YAHUSHA went with him; and many people followed Him and thronged Him.
25 And a certain woman, who had an issue of dahm for twelve years,
26 Who had suffered many things by many physicians and had spent all that she had and was not better, but rather grew worse,
27 When she had heard of YAHUSHA, she came in the crowd behind and touched His garment.
28 For she said, If I may touch even His tzitzit, I shall be whole.
29 And immediately the fountain of her dahm was dried up; and she felt in her gooff that she was healed of that plague.
30 And YAHUSHA, immediately knowing in Himself that Power had gone out of Him, turned around to the crowd and said, Who touched My clothes?
31 And His talmidim said to Him, You see the multitude thronging You and You say, Who touched Me?
32 And He looked all around about to see her that had done this thing.
33 But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before Him and told Him all the emet.
34 And He said to her, My daughter of Yisrael, your emunah has made you whole; go in shalom and be whole of your affliction.
35 While He yet spoke, there came from the shamesh of the synagogue’s bayit, someone who said, Your daughter is dead: why trouble The Master any further?
36 As soon as YAHUSHA heard the word that was spoken, He said to the shamesh of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.
37 And He allowed no man to follow Him, except Kefa and Yaakov and Yochanan the brother of Yaakov.
38 And He came to the bayit of the shamesh of the synagogue and saw the tumult and those that wept and wailed greatly.
39 And when He had come in, He said to them, Why do you make this commotion and weep? The child is not dead, but only sleeping.
40 And they laughed at Him. But when He had put them all out, He took The Abba and the eema of the child and those that were with Him and entered in where the child was lying.
41 And He took the child by the hand and said to her, Talitha cumi! Which is, translated, Little girl, I say to you, arise.
42 And immediately the child arose and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with great astonishment.
43 And He ordered them many times that no one should know it; and commanded that something should be given to her to eat.
6 And He went out from there and came into His own country; and His talmidim followed Him.
2 And when The Shabbat had come, He began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing Him were astonished, saying, From where has this Man these things? And what chochmah is this, which is given to Him, that even such mighty mitzvoth are done by His Hands?
3 Is not this the carpenter, The Son of Miryam, the brother of Yaakov and Yoseph and of Yahudah and Shimon? And are not His sisters here with us? And they were offended by Him.
4 But YAHUSHA said to them, A Navi is never belittled, except in His own country and among His own kin and in His own bayit.
5 And He could do no mighty mitzvoth there, except that He laid His Hands upon a few sick folk and healed them.
6 And He marveled because of their unbelief. And He went around their villages, teaching.
7 And He called to Him the twelve and began to send them out two by two; and He gave them Power over unclean ruachim;
8 And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, except a staff only; no bag, no lechem, no copper in their money belts:
9 But to wear sandals; and not put on two coats.
10 And He said to them, In whatever place you enter into a bayit, there abide until you depart from that place.
11 And whoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when you depart from there, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Truly I say to you, It shall be more tolerable for Sedom and Amorah in the Yom HaDin, than for that city.
12 And they went out and proclaimed that men should make teshuvah.
13 And they expelled many shedim and anointed with oil many that were sick and healed them.
14 And melech Herod heard of Him; (for His Name had been spread abroad) and he said, That Yochanan ha Matbeel had risen from the dead and therefore mighty mitzvoth do show themselves in him.
15 Others said, That it is Eli-Yahu. And others said, That it is a navi, or someone like one of the neviim.
16 But when Herod heard this, he said, It is Yochanan, whom I beheaded: he is risen from the dead.
17 For Herod himself had sent out and seized Yochanan and bound him in the prison for Herodias’ sake, his brother Philip’s isha: for he had married her.
18 For Yochanan had said to Herod, It is not permitted in the Torah for you to have your brother’s isha.
19 Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him and would have killed him; but she could not:
20 For Herod feared Yochanan, knowing that he was a just man and one who was kadosh and observed him; and when he heard him, he was very convicted and heard him with gilah.
21 And when a state occasion had come, Herod on his birthday made a supper to his great men, high captains and head men of Galil;
22 And when the daughter of Herodias came in and danced and pleased Herod and those who sat with him, the melech said to the girl, Ask from me whatever you will and I will give it you.
23 And he swore to her, Whatever you shall ask of me, I will give it to you, up to half of my malchut.
24 And she went out and said to her eema, What shall I ask for? And she said, The head of Yochanan ha Matbeel.
25 And she came in immediately with haste to the melech and asked, saying, I will that you give me immediately in a dish the head of Yochanan the Immerser.
26 And the melech was exceedingly sorry; yet for his oath’s sake and for their sakes who sat with him, he would not refuse her.
27 And immediately the melech sent an executioner and commanded his head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison,
28 And brought his head in a dish and gave it to the girl: and the girl gave it to her eema.
29 And when his talmidim heard of it, they came and took up his corpse and laid it in a tomb.
30 And his talmidim gathered themselves together to YAHUSHA and told Him all things, both what they had done and what they had taught.
31 And He said to them, Come aside by yourselves into a quiet place and rest a while: for there were many coming and going and they had no time for themselves, so much as to eat.
32 And they departed into a quiet place by boat privately.
33 And the people saw them departing and many knew Him and ran there on foot from all cities and came before them and came together to Him.
34 And YAHUSHA, when He came out, saw many people and was moved with rachamim toward them because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and He began to teach them many things.
35 And when the yom was now far gone, His talmidim came to Him and said, This is a deserted place and now the hour is late:
36 Send them away, that they may go into the country all around and into the villages and buy themselves lechem: for they have nothing to eat.
37 He answered and said to them, You give them something to eat. And they said to Him, Shall we go and buy two hundred silver pieces worth of lechem and give them to eat?
38 He said to them, How many loaves do you have? Go and see. And when they knew, they said, Five and two fishes.
39 And He commanded them to make them all sit down in groups upon the green grass.
40 And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds and by fifties.
41 And when He had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, He looked up to the shamayim and said the bracha and broke the loaves and gave them to His talmidim to set before them; and the two fishes He divided among them all.
42 And they did all eat and were filled.
43 And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and also of fishes.
44 And those that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.
45 And immediately He made His talmidim get into the boat and to go to the other side to Beth Saida, while He sent away the people.
46 And when He had sent them away, He departed into a har to make tefillah.
47 And when evening was come, the boat was in the midst of the sea and He was alone on the land.
48 And He saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was against them: and about the fourth watch of the lyla He came to them, walking upon the sea and would have passed right by them.
49 But when they saw Him walking upon the sea, they thought it was a ruach and cried out:
50 For they all saw Him and were troubled. And immediately He talked with them and said to them, Be of tov courage: it is I AM; be not afraid.
51 And He went up to them and into the boat; and the wind ceased: and they were exceedingly amazed within themselves beyond description and wondered.
52 For they understood not the miracle of the loaves: for their lev was hardened and confused.
53 And when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesar and drew to the shore.
54 And when they were come out of the boat, immediately they knew Him,
55 And ran throughout that whole region all around and began to carry in beds those that were sick, to where they heard He was.
56 And wherever He entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets and begged Him that they might touch only His tzitzit: and as many as touched Him were made whole.
7 Then came together to Him the Prushim and certain of the Sophrim, which came from Yahrushalayim.
2 And when they saw some of His talmidim eat lechem with defiled, that is to say, with unwashed, hands, they found fault.
3 For the Prushim and all the Yahudim, except they wash their hands often, eat not, holding to the tradition of the zechanim.
4 And when they come from the market, except they wash, they eat not. And many other things there are, which they have received and hold fast to such, as the washing of cups and pots, copper vessels and tables.
5 Then the Prushim and Sophrim asked Him, Why don’t Your talmidim have their halachot according to the tradition of the zechanim, but eat lechem with unwashed hands?
6 He answered and said to them, Well has Yeshayahu prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honors Me with their lips, but their lev is far from Me.
7 But in vain do they worship Me, teaching as Torah the commandments of men.
8 Laying aside the commandment of YHUH, you guard the traditions of men, such as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such things you do.
9 And He said to them, Full well you do reject the mitzvoth of YHUH, that you may keep your own tradition.
10 For Moshe said, Honor your abba and your eema; and, Whoever curses abba, or eema, let him die in death:
11 But you say, If a man shall say to his abba or eema, It is Korban, that is to say, a gift to YHUH, from whatever you might have received from me; he shall be free.
12 And you no longer allow him to do any tov matter for his abba or his eema;
13 Making The Word of YHUH of no effect through your tradition, which you have delivered: and many similar things you do.
14 And when He had called all the people to Him, He said to them, Shema to Me every one of you and understand:
15 There is nothing from outside a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are the things that defile the man.
16 If any man has ears to hear, let him hear.
17 And when He had entered into the bayit away from the people, His talmidim asked Him concerning the parable.
18 And He said to them, Are you also without binah? Do you not perceive, that things from outside that enter into the man, cannot defile him;
19 Because it enters not into his lev, but into his stomach and then is thrown out through the intestines, thereby purifying the food.
20 And He said, That which comes out of the man that defiles the man.
21 For from within, out of the lev of men, proceeds evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
23 All these evil things come from within and defile the man.
24 And from there He arose and went into the borders of Tsor and Tsidon and entered into a bayit and would have no man know it: but He could not be hidden.
25 For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean ruach, heard of Him and came and fell at His feet:
26 The woman was a heathen, a Syro-Phoenician by nation; and she begged Him that He would expel a shed out of her daughter.
27 But YAHUSHA said to her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not right to take the children’s lechem and to cast it to the dogs.
28 And she answered and said to Him, Yes, Master: yet the dogs under the shulchan eat of the children’s crumbs.
29 And He said to her, For this saying go your derech; the s.a.tan has gone out of your daughter.
30 And when she was come to her bayit, she found the s.a.tan gone out and her daughter laid upon the bed.
31 And again, departing from the coasts of Tsor and Tsidon, He came to the Sea of Galil, through the midst of the coasts of Dekapolis.
32 And they brought to Him one that was deaf and had an impediment in his speech; and they begged Him to put His hand upon him.
33 And He took him aside from the multitude and put His fingers into his ears and He spit and touched his tongue;
34 And looking up to the shamayim, He sighed and said to him, Ephtacha, that is, Be opened.
35 And immediately his ears were opened and the binding of his tongue was loosed and he spoke plainly.
36 And He ordered them that they should tell no man: but the more He ordered them, so much the more they published it;
37 And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He has done all things well: He makes both the deaf to hear and the dumb to speak.
8 In those yamim the multitudes came being very great and having nothing to eat, YAHUSHA called His talmidim to Him and said to them,
2 I have rachamim on the multitude because they have now been with Me three yamim and have nothing to eat:
3 And if I send them away fasting to their own houses, they will faint by the derech: for some of them came from far.
4 And His talmidim answered Him, From where can a man satisfy these men with lechem here in the wilderness?
5 And He asked them, How many loaves do you have? And they said, seven.
6 And He commanded the people to sit down on the ground: and He took the seven loaves and said the bracha and broke them and gave to His talmidim to set it before them; and they did set it before the people.
7 And they had a few small fishes: and He said the bracha and commanded to set them also before them.
8 So they did eat and were filled: and they took up of the broken pieces that were left, seven baskets.
9 And they that had eaten were about four thousand: and He sent them away.
10 And immediately He entered into a boat with His talmidim and came into the parts of Dalmanutha.
11 And the Prushim came out and began to question Him, seeking from Him an ot from the shamayim, trying Him.
12 And He sighed deeply in His Ruach and said, Why does this generation seek after an ot? Truly I say to you, There shall no ot be given to this generation.
13 And He left them and entering into the boat again departed to the other side.
14 Now the talmidim had forgotten to take lechem, neither did they have in the boat with them more than one loaf.
15 And He ordered them, saying, Watch out, beware of the chametz of the Prushim and of the chametz of the Herodians.
16 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have no lechem.
17 And when YAHUSHA knew it, He said to them, Why do you reason because you have no lechem? Don’t you yet perceive and understand? Are your levavot still hardened?
18 Having eyes, don’t you see? And having ears, don’t you hear? And do you not remember?
19 When I broke the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took you up? They said to Him, Twelve.
20 And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took you up? And they said, Seven.
21 And He said to them, How is it then that you do not understand?
22 And He came to Beth-Saida; and they brought a blind man to Him and begged Him to touch him.
23 And He took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the town; and when He had spit on his eyes and put His Hands upon him, He asked him if he saw anything.
24 And he looked up and said, I see men as eytzim, walking.
25 After that He put His Hands again upon his eyes and made him look up: and he was restored and saw every man clearly.
26 And He sent him away to his bayit, saying, Neither go into the town, nor tell it to anyone in the town.
27 And YAHUSHA went out and His talmidim, into the towns of Caesarea Philippi: and on the derech He asked His talmidim, saying to them, Who do men say that I AM?
28 And they answered, Yochanan the Immerser: but some say, Eli-Yahu; and others, One of the neviim.
29 And He said to them, But who do you say that I AM? And Kefa answered and said to Him,
You are The Moshiach.
30 And He ordered them that they should tell no man about Him.
31 And He began to teach them, that The Ben Ahdahm must suffer many things and be rejected of the zechanim and by the head kohanim and Sophrim and be killed and after three yamim rise again.
32 And He spoke that saying openly. And Kefa took Him and began to rebuke Him.
33 But when He had turned around and looked at His talmidim, He rebuked Kefa, saying, Get behind Me, s.a.tan: for you are not thinking on the things that are from YHUH, but the things that are from men.
34 And when He had called the people to Him with His talmidim also, He said to them, Whoever will come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his execution stake and follow Me.
35 For whoever will save his chayim shall lose it; but whoever shall lose his chayim for My sake and that of The Besorah, the same shall save it.
36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole olam hazeh and lose his own being?
37 Or, what shall a man give in exchange for his being?
38 Whoever therefore shall be ashamed of Me and of My Words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall The Ben Ahdahm be ashamed, when He comes in the tifereth of His Abba with the kadosh heavenly malachim.
9 And He said to them, Truly I say to you, That there be some of you that stand here, who shall not taste of death, until they have seen the malchut of YHUH come with Power.
2 And after six yamim YAHUSHA took with Him Kefa and Yaakov and Yochanan and led them up into an high har apart by themselves: and He was transformed before them.
3 And His raiment became shining, exceedingly white as snow; like no launderer on earth can make white.
4 And there appeared to them Eli-Yahu with Moshe: and they were talking with YAHUSHA.
5 And Kefa answered and said to YAHUSHA, Rabbi, it is tov for us to be here: and let us make three sukkot; one for You and one for Moshe and one for Eli-Yahu.
6 For he did not know what to say; for they were very afraid.
7 And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is My Beloved Son: hear Him.
8 And suddenly, when they had looked around, they saw no man anymore, except YAHUSHA only with themselves.
9 And as they came down from the har, He ordered them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, until The Ben Ahdahm had risen from the dead.
10 And they kept that saying within themselves, questioning one another what this rising from the dead should mean.
11 And they asked Him, saying, Why say the Sophrim that Eli-Yahu must first come?
12 And He answered and told them, Eli-Yahu truly comes first and restores all things; and how it is written of The Ben Ahdahm, that He must suffer many things and be despised.
13 But I say to you, That Eli-Yahu has indeed come, and they have done to him whatever they desired, as it is written of him.
14 And when He came to His talmidim, He saw a great multitude around them and the Sophrim disputing with them.
15 And immediately all the people, when they beheld Him, were greatly amazed and running to Him greeted Him.
16 And He asked the Sophrim, What are you disputing about with them?
17 And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought to You my son, who has a dumb ruach;
18 And whenever he seizes him, he tears him: and he foams and gnashes with his teeth and wastes away: and I spoke to Your talmidim that they should expel it; and they could not.
19 He answered him and said, O unbelieving generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I preach to you? Bring him to Me.
20 And they brought him to Him: and when he saw Him, immediately the ruach tore at him; and he fell on the ground and rolled around foaming.
21 And He asked his abba, How long has this been happening to him? And he said, From childhood.
22 And often it casts him into the fire and into the mayim, to destroy him: but if You can do anything, have rachamim on us and help us.
23 YAHUSHA said to him, If you can believe, all things are possible to him that believes.
24 And immediately The Abba of the child cried out and said with tears, Master, I believe; but help my unbelief.
25 When YAHUSHA saw that the people came running together, He rebuked the foul ruach, saying to him, You dumb and deaf ruach, I charge you, come out of him and enter no more into him.
26 And the ruach cried out, after causing convulsions and came out of him: and he was as one who was dead; so that many said, he is dead.
27 But YAHUSHA took him by the hand and lifted him up; and he arose.
28 And when He had come into the bayit, His talmidim asked Him privately, Why could we not expel it?
29 And He said to them, This kind can come out by nothing, other than tefillah and fasting.
30 And they departed from there and passed through Galil; and He did not desire that any man should know it.
31 For He taught His talmidim and said to them, The Ben Ahdahm is delivered into the hands of men and they shall kill Him; and after He is killed, He shall rise the third yom.
32 But they understood not that saying and were afraid to ask Him.
33 And He came to Kfar Nachum: and being in the bayit He asked them, What was it that you disputed among yourselves on the derech?
34 But they held their silence: for on the derech they had argued among themselves, who should be the greatest.
35 And He sat down and called the twelve and said to them, If any man desires to be first, the same shall be last of all and eved of all.
36 And He took a child and set him in the midst of them: and when He had taken him in His arms, He said to them,
37 Whoever shall receive one such child in My Name, receives Me: and whoever shall receive Me, receives not Me, but Him that sent Me.
38 And Yochanan answered Him, saying, Rabbi, we saw one casting out shedim in Your Name and he doesn’t follow us: and we forbade him because he doesn’t follow us.
39 But YAHUSHA said, Forbid him not: for there is no man who shall do a miracle in My Name that can ever speak evil of Me.
40 For he that is not against us is for us.
41 For whoever shall give you a cup of mayim to drink in My Name because you belong to The Moshiach, truly I say to you, That he shall not lose his reward.
42 And whoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in Me, it is better for him that a millstone were hung around his neck and he were cast into the sea.
43 And if your hand offends you, cut it off: it is better for you to enter into chayim maimed, than having two hands to go into Gei-Hinnom, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
44 Where their worm dies not and the fire is not quenched.
45 And if your foot offend you, cut it off: it is better for you to enter crippled into chayim, than having two feet to be cast into Gei-Hinnom, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
46 Where their worm dies not and the fire is not quenched.
47 And if your eye offends you, pluck it out: it is better for you to enter into the malchut of YHUH with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into Gei-Hinnom fire:
48 Where their worm dies not and the fire is not quenched.
49 For every one shall be salted with fire and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt.
50 Salt is tov: but if the salt has lost its saltiness, with what will you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have shalom one with another.
10 And He arose from there and came into the coasts of Yahudah by the other side of the Yarden: and the people gathered to Him again; and, as He usually did, He taught them again.
2 And the Prushim came to Him and asked Him, Is it permitted in the Torah for a man to put away his isha? Trying Him.
3 And He answered and said to them, What did Moshe command you?
4 And they said, Moshe allowed us to write a Sefer Keritut and to put her away.
5 And YAHUSHA answered and said to them, For the hardness of your lev he wrote you this precept.
6 But from the beginning of the creation YHUH made them male and female in order.
7 For this cause shall a man leave his abba and eema and cleave to his isha?
8 And the two shall be one flesh: so then they are no more two, but one flesh.
9 What therefore YHUH has joined together let not man separate.
10 And in the bayit His talmidim asked Him again about the same matter.
11 And He said to them, Whoever shall put away his isha [without him giving her a scroll of divorce] and then she marries another, she then commits adultery.
12 And if a woman shall [try to] put away her husband [without him giving her a scroll of divorce] and she marries another man, she commits adultery.
13 And they brought young children to Him, that He should touch them: and His talmidim rebuked those that brought them.
14 But when YAHUSHA saw it, He was much displeased and said to them, Allow the little children to come to Me and forbid them not: for of such people is the malchut of YHUH.
15 Truly I say to you, Whoever shall not receive the malchut of YHUH as a little child, he shall not enter into it.
16 And He took them up in His arms, put His Hands upon them and said a bracha upon them.
17 And when He had gone out into the derech, there came one running and bowed before Him and asked Him, Tov Rabbi, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal chayim?
18 And YAHUSHA said to him, Why do you call Me tov? There is none tov but One, that is, YHUH.
19 You know the mitzvoth, Do not commit adultery, Do not murder, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honor your abba and eema.
20 And he answered and said to Him, Rabbi, all these have I observed from my youth.
21 Then YAHUSHA beholding him loved him and said to him, One thing you lack: go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor and you shall have treasure in the shamayim: and come, take up the execution stake and follow Me.
22 And he was sad at that saying and went away grieved and depressed: for he had great possessions.
23 And YAHUSHA looked around and said to His talmidim, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the malchut of YHUH.
24 And the talmidim were astonished at His Words. But YAHUSHA answered again and said to them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the malchut of YHUH.
25 It is easier for a large rope to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the malchut of YHUH.
26 And they were totally astonished, saying among themselves, Who then can be saved?
27 And YAHUSHA looking at them said, With men it is impossible, but not with YHUH: for with YHUH all things are possible.
28 Then Kefa began to say to Him, Look, we have left all and have followed You.
29 And YAHUSHA answered and said, Truly I say to you, There is no man that has left bayit, or brothers, or sisters, or abba, or eema, or isha, or children, or lands, for My sake and that of The Besorah,
30 That he shall not receive one hundredfold now in this time, houses and Yisraelite brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands with persecutions; and in the olam haba eternal chayim.
31 But many that are first shall be last; and the last first.
32 And they were in the derech going up to Yahrushalayim; and YAHUSHA went before them: and they were amazed; and as they followed, they were afraid. And He took again the twelve and began to tell them what things would happen to Him,
33 Saying, See, we go up to Yahrushalayim; and The Ben Ahdahm shall be delivered to the head kohanim and to the Sophrim; and they shall condemn Him to death and shall deliver Him to the goyim:
34 And they shall mock Him and shall scourge Him and shall spit upon Him and shall kill Him: and the third yom He shall rise again.
35 And Yaakov and Yochanan, the sons of Zavdi, came to Him, saying, Rabbi, we would that You should do for us what we desire.
36 And He said to them, What would you desire that I should do for you?
37 They said to Him, Grant to us that we may sit, one on Your right hand and the other on Your left hand, in Your tifereth.
38 But YAHUSHA said to them, You know not what you ask: can you drink of the cup that I drink of ? And be immersed with the mikvah that I AM immersed with?
39 And they said to Him, We can. And YAHUSHA said to them, You shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of; and with the mikvah that I AM immersed with shall you be immersed:
40 But to sit on My right hand and on My left hand is not mine to give; but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared.
41 And when the ten heard it, they began to be much displeased with Yaakov and Yochanan.
42 But YAHUSHA called them to Him and said to them, You know that they who are chosen to rule over the goyim exercise dominion over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them.
43 But so shall it not be among you: but whoever will be great among you, shall be your eved:
44 And whoever of you desires to be the first, shall be eved of all.
45 For even The Ben Ahdahm came not to be attended to, but to serve and to give His chayim a ransom for many.
46 And they came to Yericho: and as He went out of Yericho with His talmidim and a great number of people, blind Bartimai, the son of Timai, sat by the highway side begging.
47 And when he heard that it was YAHUSHA of Natzeret, he began to cry out and say, YAHUSHA, Ben Dawid, have rachamim on me.
48 And many ordered him that he should hold his silence: but he cried out even more, Oy! Ben Dawid, have rachamim on me.
49 And YAHUSHA stood still and commanded him to be called. And they called the blind man, saying to him, Be of tov comfort, rise; He calls for you.
50 And he, casting away his garment, rose and came to YAHUSHA.
51 And YAHUSHA answered and said to him, What do you desire that I should do for you? The blind man said to Him, Master, that I might receive my sight.
52 And YAHUSHA said to him, Go your derech; your emunah has made you whole. And immediately he received his sight and followed YAHUSHA in the derech.
11 And when they came near to Yahrushalayim, to Beth Phagi and Beth-Anya, at the Har of Olives, He sent out two of His talmidim,
2 And said to them, Go your derech into the village opposite you: and as soon as you enter into it, you shall find a colt tied, on which never man sat; loose him and bring him.
3 And if any man says to you, Why are you doing this? You say that our Rabbi has need of it; and immediately he will send him here.
4 And they went their derech and found the colt tied by the door outside in a place where two derachot met; and they loosed him.
5 And certain of them that stood there said to them, What are you doing, loosing the colt?
6 And they said to them even as YAHUSHA had commanded: and they let them go.
7 And they brought the colt to YAHUSHA and cast their garments on him; and He sat upon him.
8 And many spread their garments in the derech: and others cut down branches off the eytzim and spread them in the derech.
9 And they that went before and they that followed, shouted, saying, Hoshiana; Baruch Habah Beshem HaAdon YHUH:
10 Blessed is the malchut of our abba Dawid that comes in the Name of YHUH: Hoshiana in the highest.
11 And YAHUSHA entered into Yahrushalayim and into the Beit HaMikdash: and when He had looked around at all things and the evening had come, He went out to Beth-Anya with the twelve.
12 And on the next yom, when they had come from Beth-Anya, He was hungry:
13 And seeing a fig eytz far off having leaves, He came, to see if He might find anything on it: and when He came to it, He found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs had not yet come.
14 And YAHUSHA answered and said to it, No man eat fruit from you after this le-olam-va-ed. And His talmidim heard it.
15 And they came to Yahrushalayim: and YAHUSHA went into the Beit HaMikdash and began to cast out those that sold and bought in the Beit HaMikdash and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers and the seats of them that sold doves;
16 And would not allow that any man should carry any vessel through the Beit HaMikdash.
17 And He taught, saying to them, Is it not written, My Bayit shall be called a Beit Tefillah for all goyim? But you have made it a den of thieves.
18 And the Sophrim and head kohanim heard it and sought how they might destroy Him: for they feared Him because all the people were astonished at His teaching.
19 And when evening had come, they went out of the city.
20 And in the boker, as they passed by, they saw the fig eytz dried up from the roots.
21 And Kefa calling it to remembrance said to Him, Rabbi, see, the fig eytz that You cursed has withered away.
22 And YAHUSHA answering said to them, Have emunah in YHUH.
23 For truly I say to you, That whoever shall say to this har, Be removed and be cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his lev, but shall believe that those things, which he says, shall come to pass; he shall have whatever he says.
24 Therefore I say to you, What things you desire, when you make tefillah, believe that you receive them and you shall have them.
25 And when you stand making tefillah, forgive, if you have any matter against any: that your Abba also who is in the shamayim may forgive you your trespasses.
26 But if you do not forgive, neither will your Abba who is in the shamayim forgive your trespasses.
27 And they came again to Yahrushalayim: and as He was walking in the Beit HaMikdash, there came to Him the head kohanim and the Sophrim and the zechanim,
28 And said to Him, By what authority are You doing these things? And who gave You this authority to do these things?
29 And YAHUSHA answered and said to them, I will also ask you one question and answer Me and I will tell you by what authority I do these things.
30 The mikvah from Yochanan, was it from the shamayim, or from men? Answer Me.
31 And they reasoned within themselves, saying, If we shall say, From the shamayim; He will say, Why then did you not believe him?
32 But if we shall say, Of men; they feared the people: for all men reckoned Yochanan, that he was a navi indeed.
33 And they answered and said to YAHUSHA, We cannot tell. And YAHUSHA answering said to them, Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things.
12 And He began to speak to them by parables. A certain Man planted a vineyard and set a hedge around it and dug a place for the winepress and built a tower and rented it out to farmers and went into a far country.
2 And at the season of harvest, He sent to the farmers an eved, that he might receive from the farmers of the fruit of the vineyard.
3 And they caught him and beat him and sent him away empty.
4 And again He sent to them another eved; and at him they cast stones and wounded him in the head and sent him away shamefully handled.
5 And again He sent another; and him they killed and many others; beating some and killing some.
6 Having yet therefore one Son, His well beloved, He sent him lastly also to them, saying, They will reverence My Son.
7 But those farmers said among themselves, This is the Heir; come, let us kill Him and the inheritance shall be ours.
8 And they took Him and killed Him and cast Him out of the vineyard.
9 What shall therefore the master of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy the farmers and will give the vineyard to others.
10 And have you not read this Katuv; The Stone, which the builders rejected, has become the Head of the corner:
11 This was The Master YHUH’s doing and it is marvelous in our eyes?
12 And they sought to lay hold on Him, but feared the people: for they knew that He had spoken the parable against them: and they left Him and went their way.
13 And they sent to Him certain of the Prushim and of the Herodians, to catch Him in His Words.
14 And when they had come, they said to Him, Rabbi, we know that You are emet and are not concerned with man’s opinion: for You regard not the person of men, but teach the derech of YHUH in emet: Is it permitted according to Torah to give taxes to Kaiser, or not?
15 Shall we give, or shall we not give? But He, knowing their hypocrisy, said to them, Why do you test Me? Bring Me a penny, that I may see it.
16 And they brought it. And He said to them, Whose image and inscription is this? And they said to Him, Kaiser’s.
17 And YAHUSHA answering said to them, Render to Kaiser the things that are Kaiser’s and to YHUH the things that are YHUH ’s. And they marveled at Him.
18 Then come to Him the Tzadukim, who say there is no resurrection; and they asked Him, saying,
19 Rabbi, Moshe Rabainu wrote to us, If a man’s brother dies and leaves his isha behind him and leaves no children, that his brother should take his isha and raise up zera for his brother.
20 Now there were seven brothers: and the first took an isha and dying left no zera.
21 And the second took her and died, neither left her any zera: and the third likewise.
22 And the seven all had her and left no zera: last of all the woman died also.
23 In the resurrection therefore, whose isha shall she be? Since all seven had her as an isha.
24 And YAHUSHA answering said to them, Do you not therefore make serious errors because you know not the Keetvay HaKadosh, or The Power of YHUH ?
25 For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the heavenly malachim who are in the shamayim.
26 And concerning the dead, that they will rise: have you not read in the Torah of Moshe, how in the bush YHUH spoke to him, saying, I AM the Eloha of Avraham and the Eloha of Yitzchak and the Eloha of Yaakov?
27 He is not the Eloha of the dead, but the Eloha of the living: you therefore do greatly go astray.
28 And one of the Sophrim came and having heard them reasoning together and perceiving that He had answered them well, asked Him, Which is the first mitzvah of all?
29 And YAHUSHA answered him, The first of all the mitzvoth is, Shema, Yisrael; The Master YHUH is our Eloha, The Master YHUH is Echad:
30 And you shall love The Master YHUH your Eloha with all your lev and with all your being and with all your mind and with all your strength: this is the first mitzvah.
31 And the second is like it, namely this; You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There are no other mitzvoth greater than these.
32 And the Sopher said to Him, Well, Rabbi, You have said the emet: for there is One Eloha; and there is no other besides Him:
33 And to love Him with all the lev and with all the binah and with all the being and with all the strength and to love your neighbor as yourself, is more than all the burnt offerings and sacrifices.
34 And when YAHUSHA saw that he answered discreetly, He said to him, You are not far from the malchut of YHUH. And no man after that did ask Him any questions.
35 And YAHUSHA responding said, while He taught in the Beit HaMikdash, How do the Sophrim say that The Moshiach is Ben Dawid?
36 For Dawid himself said by The Ruach Hakodesh, The Master YHUH said to My Master, Sit at My right hand, until I make Your enemies Your footstool.
37 Dawid therefore himself called Him Master; in what way then is He Dawid’s son? And the common people heard Him with gilah.
38 And He said to them in His teaching, Beware of the Sophrim, who love to go in long clothing and love greetings in the marketplaces,
39 And the best seats in the synagogues and the best places at moadeem:
40 Who devour widows’ houses and for a public show make long tefillot: these shall receive greater damnation.
41 And YAHUSHA sat over against the treasury and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.
42 And there came a certain poor widow and she threw in two small copper coins, which make a cent.
43 And He called His talmidim and said to them, Truly I say to you, That this poor widow has put more in, than all those who have put into the treasury:
44 For all they did put in of their abundance; but she of her poverty did put in all that she had, even all her livelihood.
13 And as He went out of the Beit HaMikdash, one of His talmidim said to Him, Rabbi, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here!
2 And YAHUSHA answering said to him, Do you see these great buildings? There shall not be left one stone upon another that shall not be thrown down.
3 And as He sat upon the Har of Olives opposite the Beit HaMikdash, Kefa and Yaakov and Yochanan and Andri asked Him privately,
4 Tell us, when shall these things be? And what shall be the ot when all these things shall be fulfilled?
5 And YAHUSHA answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you:
6 For many shall come in My Name, saying, I AM The Moshiach; and shall deceive many.
7 And when you shall hear of wars and rumors of wars, be not troubled: for such things must indeed be; but the end shall not be yet.
8 For nation shall rise against nation and malchut against malchut: and there shall be earthquakes in different places and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the Shivlai HaMoshiach.
9 But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues you shall be beaten: and you shall be brought before rulers and melechim for My sake, for a testimony to them.
10 And The Besorah must first be published among all goyim.
11 But when they shall lead you away and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what you shall speak, neither do you premeditate: but whatever shall be given you in that hour, that you shall speak: for it is not you that speaks, but The Ruach Hakodesh.
12 Now the brother shall betray the brother to death and The Abba the son; and children shall rise up against their parents and shall cause them to be put to death.
13 And you shall be hated of all men for My Name’s sake: but he that shall endure to the end, the same shall be saved.
14 But when you shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the navi, set up where it should not be (let him that reads understand), then let them that be in Yahudah flee to the mountains:
15 And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the bayit, neither enter in, to take any thing out of his bayit:
16 And let him that is in the field not turn back again to take up his garment.
17 But woe to them that are with child and to them that nurse in those yamim!
18 And make tefillah that your flight is not in the winter.
19 For in those yamim shall be Tribulation, such as was not from the beginning of the creation that YHUH created to this time, neither shall be ever again.
20 And except that The Master YHUH had shortened those yamim, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake, whom He has chosen, He has shortened the yamim.
21 And then if any man shall say to you, Look, here is The Moshiach; or look, He is there; believe him not:
22 For false Moshiachs and false neviim shall rise and shall show signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the chosen people.
23 But take heed: see, I have foretold you all things.
24 But in those yamim, after that Tribulation, the shemesh shall be darkened and the yarayach shall not give her ohr,
25 And the cochavim of the shamayim shall fall and the powers that are in the shamayim shall be shaken.
26 And then shall they see The Ben Ahdahm coming on the clouds with great Power and tifereth.
27 And then shall He send His heavenly malachim and shall gather together His chosen people from the four winds, from the uttermost parts of the earth to the uttermost parts of the shamayim.
28 Now learn a parable of the fig eytz; When her branch is yet tender and puts out leaves, you know that summer is near:
29 So in like manner, when you shall see these things come to pass, know that it is near, even at the doors.
30 Truly I say to you, That this generation shall not pass, until all these things take place.
31 The shamayim and the earth shall pass away: but My Words shall not pass away.
32 But of that yom and that hour knows no man, no, not the heavenly malachim who are in the shamayim, neither The Son, but The Abba alone.
33 Take heed, watch and make tefillah: for you know not when the time is.
34 For The Ben Ahdahm is like a man taking a far journey, who left His Bayit and gave authority to His avadim and to every man his work assignment and commanded the doorkeeper to watch.
35 Watch therefore: for you know not when The Master of the Bayit comes, at evening, or at midnight, or at twilight, or in the boker:
36 Lest coming suddenly He finds you sleeping.
37 And what I say to you I say to kol Yisrael, Shomer!
14 After two yamim was the moed of the Pesach and of Chag Matzoth: and the head kohanim and the Sophrim sought how they might seize Him by trickery and put Him to death.
2 But they said, Not on the moed yom, lest there be an uproar of the people.
3 And being in Beth-Anya in the bayit of Shimon The Jar Merchant, as He sat at dinner, there came a woman having an alabaster flask of ointment of pistachio very precious; and she broke the flask and poured it on His head.
4 And there were some that were displeased among themselves and said, Why was this waste of the ointment made?
5 For it might have been sold for more than three hundred pieces of silver and given to the poor. And they murmured against her.
6 And YAHUSHA said, Leave her alone; why do you trouble her? She has done a tov mitzvah for Me.
7 For you have the poor with you always and whenever you desire, you may do them tov: but Me you have not always.
8 She has done what she could: she has come before the time to anoint My gooff for its burial.
9 Truly I say to you, Wherever this Besorah shall be proclaimed throughout the whole olam hazeh, what she has done shall be spoken of for her remembrance.
10 And Yahudah from Qerioth, one of the twelve, went to the head kohanim, to betray Him to them.
11 And when they heard it, they had gilah and promised to give him money. And he sought how he might conveniently betray Him.
12 And before the first yom of Chag Matzoth, when they killed the Pesach, His talmidim said to Him, Where do You desire that we go and prepare so that You may eat the Pesach?
13 And He sent out two of His talmidim and said to them, Go into the city and there shall meet you a man bearing a pitcher of mayim: follow him.
14 And wherever he shall go in, say to the owner of the bayit, The Rabbi said, Where is the guest room, where I shall eat the Pesach with My talmidim?
15 And he will show you a large upper room furnished and prepared: there make it ready for us!
16 And His talmidim went out and came into the city and found it as He had said to them: and they made ready the Pesach.
17 And in the evening He came with the twelve.
18 And as they sat and did eat, YAHUSHA said, Truly I say to you, One of you who eats with Me shall betray Me.
19 And they began to be sorrowful and to say to Him one by one, Is it I? And another said, Is it I?
20 And He answered and said to them, It is one of the twelve that dips with Me in the dish.
21 The Ben Ahdahm indeed is going, as it is written of Him: but woe to that man by whom The Ben Ahdahm is betrayed! Tov were it for that man if he had never been born.
22 And as they did eat, YAHUSHA took matzah and said the bracha and broke it and gave it to them and said, Take, eat: this is My gooff.
23 And He took the Cup of Geulah and when He had given hodu, He gave it to them: and they all drank of it.
24 And He said to them, This is My dahm of the Brit Chadasha, which is shed for many.
25 Truly I say to you, I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until that yom that I drink it new in the malchut of YHUH.
26 And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Har of Olives.
27 And YAHUSHA said to them, All you shall be offended because of Me this lyla: for it is written, I will smite the Shepherd and the sheep shall be scattered.
28 But after I AM risen, I will go before you into Galil.
29 But Kefa said to Him, Although all shall be offended; yet I will not.
30 And YAHUSHA said to him, Truly I say to you, That this yom, even in this lyla, before the cock crows twice, you shall deny Me three different times.
31 But he spoke the more vehemently, If I should die with You, I still will not deny You in any way. Likewise said all of them.
32 And they came to a place that was named Gat Sh’manim: and He said to His talmidim, Sit here, while I shall make tefillah.
33 And He took with Him Kefa and Yaakov and Yochanan and He began to be very pressed down and to be deeply distressed;
34 And said to them, My being is exceedingly sorrowful to death: tarry here and watch.
35 And He went forward a little and fell on the ground and made tefillah that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from Him.
36 And He said, Abba, Abba, all things are possible for You; take away this cup from Me: nevertheless not what I will, but what You will.
37 And He came and found them sleeping and He said to Kefa, Shimon, are you sleeping? Couldn’t you watch just one hour?
38 Watch and make tefillah, lest you enter into temptation. The human ruach truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.
39 And again He went away and made tefillah and spoke the same words.
40 And when He returned, He found them asleep again, for their eyes were heavy, neither did they know what to answer Him.
41 And He came the third time and said to them, Sleep on now and take your rest: it is enough, the hour has come; see, The Ben Ahdahm is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
42 Rise up, let us go; look, he that betrays Me is here.
43 And immediately, while He yet spoke, came Yahudah, one of the twelve and with him a great multitude with swords and clubs, from the head kohanim and the Sophrim and the zechanim.
44 And he that betrayed Him had given them an ot, saying, Whomever I shall kiss, that is the one; take Him and lead Him away safely.
45 And as soon as he was come, he went immediately to Him and said, Rabbi, Rabbi; and kissed Him.
46 And they laid their hands on Him and took Him.
47 And one of them that stood by drew a sword and smote an eved of the Kohen HaGadol and cut off his ear.
48 And YAHUSHA answered and said to them, Are you come out, against a thief, with swords and with clubs to take Me?
49 I was daily with you in the Beit HaMikdash teaching and you took Me not: but the Keetvay HaKadosh must be fulfilled.
50 And they all forsook Him and fled.
51 And there followed Him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast around his naked gooff; and the men laid hold on him:
52 And he left the linen cloth and fled from them naked.
53 And they led YAHUSHA away to the Kohen HaGadol: and with him were assembled all the head kohanim and the zechanim and the Sophrim.
54 And Kefa followed Him far off, even into the palace of the Kohen HaGadol: and he sat with the avadim and warmed himself at the fire.
55 And the head kohanim and all the Sanhedrin sought for a witness against YAHUSHA to put Him to death; and found none.
56 For many bore false witness against Him, but their witness did not agree.
57 And there arose some and bore false witness against Him, saying,
58 We heard Him say, I will destroy this Beit HaMikdash that is made with hands and within three yamim I will build another made without hands.
59 But neither in this accusation did their witness agree.
60 And the Kohen HaGadol stood up in the midst and asked YAHUSHA, saying, Do You answer nothing? What is this that they witness against You?
61 But He maintained His silence and answered nothing. Again the Kohen HaGadol asked Him and said to Him, Are You The Moshiach, The Son of the Blessed?
62 And YAHUSHA said, I AM: and you shall see The Ben Ahdahm sitting on the Right Hand of Power, and coming on the clouds of the shamayim.
63 Then the Kohen HaGadol tore his clothes and said, Why do we need any further witnesses?
64 You have heard the blasphemy: what do you think? And they all condemned Him to be guilty of death.
65 And some began to spit on Him and to cover His face and to buffet Him and to say to Him, Prophesy: and the avadim did strike Him with the palms of their hands.
66 And as Kefa was beneath in the palace, there came one of the eved girls of the Kohen HaGadol:
67 And when she saw Kefa warming himself, she looked at him and said: And you also were with YAHUSHA of Natzeret.
68 But he denied it, saying, I know Him not; neither do I understand what you say. And he went out into the porch; and the cock crew.
69 And an eved girl saw him again and began to say to them that stood by, He is one of them.
70 And he denied it again. And a little after, they that stood by said again to Kefa, Surely you are one of them: for you are a Galilean and your speech is like theirs.
71 But he began to curse and to swear, saying, I know not this man of whom you speak.
72 And the second time the cock crowed. And Kefa recalled to mind the word that YAHUSHA said to him, Before the cock crows twice, you shall deny Me three times. And when he thought about it, he wept.
15 And immediately in the boker the head kohanim held a consultation with the zechanim and Sophrim and the whole Sanhedrin and bound YAHUSHA and carried Him away and delivered Him to Pilate.
2 And Pilate asked Him, Are You The Melech of the Yahudim? And He answering said to him, You said it.
3 And the head kohanim accused Him of many things: but He answered nothing.
4 And Pilate asked Him again, saying, You answer nothing? Look at how many things they witness against You.
5 But YAHUSHA again answered nothing; so that Pilate marveled.
6 Now at that moed he released one prisoner to them, whomever they desired.
7 And there was one named Bar-Abba, who was bound with them that had made insurrection with him, who had committed murder in the insurrection.
8 And the multitude crying aloud began to desire him to do as he had always done for them.
9 But Pilate answered them, saying, Do you wish that I release to you The Melech of the Yahudim?
10 For he knew that the head kohanim had delivered Him because of envy.
11 But the head kohanim moved the people, that he should release Bar-Abba to them.
12 And Pilate answered and said again to them, What will you then that I shall do to Him whom you call The Melech of the Yahudim?
13 And they cried out again, Impale Him!
14 Then Pilate said to them, Why, what evil has He done? And they cried out the more exceedingly, Impale Him!
15 And so Pilate, willing to gratify the people, released Bar-Abba to them and delivered YAHUSHA, when he had scourged Him, to be impaled.
16 And the soldiers led Him away into the hall, called Praetorium; and they called together the whole company of soldiers.
17 And they clothed Him with purple and platted a keter of thorns and put it around His head,
18 And began to salute Him, Hail, Melech of the Yahudim!
19 And they smote Him on the head with a reed and did spit upon Him and bowing their knees they mockingly worshipped Him.
20 And when they had mocked Him, they took off the purple from Him and put His own clothes on Him and led Him out to impale Him.
21 And they compelled one Shimon a Cyrenian, who passed by, coming out of the country, The Abba of Alexander and Rufus, to bear His execution stake.
22 And they brought Him to the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of The Skull.
23 And they gave Him wine to drink mixed with myrrh: but He received it not.
24 And when they had impaled Him, they parted His garments, casting lots for them, what every man should take.
25 And it was 9 in the boker and they impaled Him.
26 And the inscription of His accusation was written above; Y-AHSHUA H-ANOTZREI U-MELECH HAYAHUDIM.
27 And with Him they impaled two thieves; the one on His right hand and the other on His left.
28 And The Katuv was fulfilled, that said: And He was numbered with the transgressors.
29 And they that passed by blasphemed Him, wagging their heads and saying, Ah-ha, You that destroys the Beit HaMikdash and builds it in three yamim,
30 Save yourself and come down from the execution stake.
31 Likewise also the head kohanim mocking said among themselves with the Sophrim, He saved others; Himself He cannot save.
32 Let The Moshiach The Melech of Yisrael descend now from the execution stake that we may see and believe. And they that were impaled with Him reviled Him.
33 And when 12 noon had come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.
34 And at 3 in the afternoon YAHUSHA cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli- YHUH, Eli- YHUH, lemana-azavthani? Which means, My El- YHUH, My El- YHUH, why are You keeping Me waiting so long?
35 And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, See, He calls for Eli-Yahu.
36 And one ran and filled a sponge full of vinegar and put it on a reed and gave Him to drink, saying, Leave Him alone; let us see whether Eli-Yahu will come to take Him down.
37 And YAHUSHA cried with a loud voice and gave up the ruach.
38 And the veil of the Beit HaMikdash was torn in two from the top to the bottom.
39 And when the centurion, who stood opposite Him, saw that He cried out and gave up the ruach, he said, Truly this Man was The Son of The Almighty.
40 There were also women looking on far off: among whom was Miryam of Magdala and Miryam the eema of Yaakov the Lesser and of Yoseph and Shlomo;
41 Who also, when He was in Galil, followed Him and attended to Him; and many other women who came up with Him to Yahrushalayim.
42 And now when the evening had come because it was the preparation, that is, the yom before The Shabbat,
43 Yoseph of Ramathayim, a prominent Sanhedrin member, who also believed in and waited for the malchut of YHUH, came and went in boldly to Pilate and asked for the gooff of YAHUSHA.
44 And Pilate marveled that He was already dead: and he called the centurion and asked Him whether He had already been dead.
45 And when he knew it from the centurion, he gave the gooff to Yoseph.
46 And he bought fine linen and took Him down and wrapped Him in linen and laid Him in a tomb that was cut out of a rock and rolled a stone to the door of the tomb.
47 And Miryam from Magdala and Miryam the eema of Yoseph beheld the place where He was laid.
16 And after the annual Shabbat (Aviv 15) had fully past, Miryam from Magdala and Miryam the eema of Yaakov and Shulamit, had bought sweet spices that they might come and anoint Him.
2 And very early in the boker on one of the weekly Shabbats they came to the tomb just as the shemesh was rising.
3 And they said among themselves, Who shall roll away for us the stone from the door of the tomb?
4 And when they looked, they saw that the stone was already rolled away: for it was very great.
5 And entering into the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were greatly frightened.
6 And he said to them, Be not afraid: You seek YAHUSHA of Natzeret, who was impaled: He is risen; He is not here: see the place where they laid Him.
7 But go your derech, tell His talmidim and Kefa that He went before you into Galil: there shall you see Him, as He said to you.
8 And they went out quickly and fled from the tomb; for they trembled and were amazed: neither said they anything to any man; for they were afraid.
9 Having risen moreover on the first Shabbat (Aviv 18 after Passover), He appeared first to Miryam from Magdala, out of whom He had expelled seven shedim.
10 And she went and told them that had been with Him, as they mourned and wept.
11 And they, when they had heard that He was alive and had been seen by her, they believed not.
12 After that He appeared in another form to two of them, as they walked and went into the country.
13 And they went and told it to the rest: neither did the rest believe them.
14 Afterward He appeared to the eleven as they sat to eat and upbraided them for their unbelief and hardness of lev because they believed not those who had seen Him after He had risen.
15 And He said to them, Go into all the olam hazeh and proclaim The Besorah to every creature.
16 He that believes and is immersed shall be saved; but he that believes not shall be condemned.
17 And these signs shall follow all them that believe-trust; In My Name shall they all expel shedim; they shall speak with new tongues;
18 They shall take up-out serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover.
19 So then after YAHUSHA had spoken to them; He was received up into the third shamayim and sat down as the Right Hand of YHUH.
20 And they went out and proclaimed everywhere, YHUH working with them and confirming the word with signs following. Ahmein. X
He Has Risen Indeed!
MARK 1:3 Mar-YAH in Aramaic text.
MARK 1:6 See notes on Matthew 3:4.
MARK 1:15 The King was here and Israel was about to be restored and enter the kingdom.
MARK 1:17 A fulfillment of the promise that Israel would multiply like fishes in the midst of the earth in Genesis 48:16. Fishermen trained by Messiah certainly knew how to catch the multitudes of Israel through the Great Commission.
MARK 1:27 Deliverance was not a new teaching but the backslidden leaders had stopped helping others and were only concerned with their own power and kingdom. Messiah here is restoring the promised ministry of deliverance, promised in Isaiah Chapter 61, in the LXX, proof of His power as The Messiah.
MARK 1:28 See comments for Matthew 4:15.
MARK 1:38 That is the primary reason for His coming. To reach Yisraelites in all their towns both in Judah and all the nations.
MARK 1:44 The real Messiah encouraged His disciples to follow Torah.
MARK 2:2 The ingathering of Israel.
MARK 2:3 The four men symbolic of the four corners, or four winds of the earth, bringing sick and lost Yisraelites to The Master.
MARK 2:7 Which is why Messiah was YAH the Sent One from YAH the Greater. YAH can forgive sins on earth as it is done in the heavens.
MARK 2:9 Neither, only YAH can do both.
MARK 2:13 A reference to Israel’s promised multitudes.
MARK 2:17 In Scripture, the sick are equated with the wayward, or backslidden First Covenant sheep of lost Israel.
MARK 2:22 Meaning Messiah’s mission was to renew the wineskin, not the wine of Torah. Israel is the wineskin and Renewed Covenant Israel is the new wineskin.
MARK 2:26 The term “high priest” is found only in the Peshitta. In the Peshitta and the Greek, the name “Aviathar” appears here rather than his father Ahimelech. Ahimelech was merely a priest in Dawid's time, whereas in the Peshitta, Messiah reveals that Ahimelech’s son Aviathar was the High Priest, while his father was merely a priest.
MARK 2:26 Kal VaChomer. Weightier versus lighter matters. When two Torah principles that are both valid seem to contradict, the weightier, or more important allows action that often violates, or seems to violate the lesser matters. The overriding principle in the spirit of Torah is what is called yeshuat nefesh, or the saving of life, which takes higher precedent than any other statute and can include breaking all 613 commands to save a single human life. This is the principal at work here. Dawid would have died without food. And that took precedence over The Shabbat, especially since The Shabbat was made for man and if a man were dead, what good would The Shabbat do for him?
MARK 3:7 Efrayimites.
MARK 3:7 Jews.
MARK 3:14 For all twelve tribes.
MARK 3:20 Promised multitudes.
MARK 3:25 In the pashat, or literal understanding, Messiah explains how illogical their argument is since s.a.tan would be interested in casting out clean messengers but never himself. In the remez/hint, He is stating the principle, that so long as Israel remains divided into two houses, or malchutim, they will be open to various forms of division and diverse fallings and failings, that would not take place were the kingdom already restored to Israel.
MARK 3:30 Attributing the works of Messiah to s.a.tan's power. No believer would willfully do that as did the Pharisees.
MARK 4:1The sea in Scripture is a type of the world and by sitting in the sea with His disciples, He is portraying that through His Word all those whom the 12 disciples represent scattered in the nations will come to His truth and His message of restoration and healing.
MARK 4:11 Believing Yisraelites get the message directly while those outside of believing Israel must come through parables. So parables were given to reveal history and future revelation to regathered Israel, while blinding the eyes of those outside, in order to force them to inquire on their own.
MARK 4:20 Israel redeemed and forgiven is the good solid soil that receives His Word.
MARK 4:21 Once Israel receives Messiah's teaching, we are to let our truth and light shine in all the House of Israel.
MARK 4:25 A spiritual law.
MARK 4:27 Since we don’t know where exactly every lost sheep is, we are to scatter The Word of the kingdom to all four corners of the globe so that it can reach our brothers and then they can be touched and appear as fruits in the kingdom.
MARK 4:32 A clear reference to Israel’s beginnings with Abraham and the growth to the present day, where there is so much leaven in both houses, one does not know where to begin to clear house. Thankfully Messiah does know and has been doing so.
MARK 5:13 In the hint, or remez level this account teaches us that for 2,000 years (symbolized by the 2,000 pigs) – the time between Messiah’s comings – both houses of Israel would enter into the pigs, or into pagan practice and worship, resulting in death in the sea symbolizing the exile and spiritual death into the nations.
MARK 5:13 We were choked in the sea of nations.
MARK 5:20 Meaning “ten cities” symbolic of the ten tribes of Efrayim-Israel receiving the Good News and the healing emanating from that message.
MARK 5:24 The multitudes of Israel.
MARK 5:29 The woman is Israel. The twelve years of pain are one year for each tribe and the tzitzit/fringes are symbolic of remembering all YAH’s torot/laws and the power that goes from the Torah and Messiah that flows back to Israel, who then is made whole.
MARK 5:34 Biblical faith in Messiah and Torah will lead us to peace and wholeness.
MARK 5:41 An alternate rendering for Talitha Cumi would be “you who are under the tallit/tefillah shawl rise.”
MARK 5:42 When this child of Israel is healed, she represents all Yisraelites who receive the message of the kingdom as a little child and each of those twelve years of age, represents the resurrection of all 12 tribes to new life by Messiah. Once alive they are given new manna, or lechem to eat as seen in verse 43.
MARK 6:5 He chose not to do so because there was no faith there to move Him into action.
MARK 6:12 Men is a term often used for lost Israelites.
MARK 6:34 He was moved by Israel’s lost sheep who lacked any true guidance and provider.
MARK 6:41 See note on Matthew 14:19.
MARK 6:41 He came for those two groups of fishes that were divided.
MARK 6:43 From the two fishes and the five loaves, He filled 12 baskets, meaning that He takes a divided people and regathers them neatly placed into 12 baskets full, symbolizing the fullness of the tribes in the regathering.
MARK 7:12 See notes on Matthew 15:5-6.
MARK 7:18 Messiah in no way is reversing any laws of kashrut/ permitted clean foods, for if He even considered reversing one, He could not by definition be The Messiah. No, instead the topic here regards the traditions of washing hands so as to be considered ritually pure. This was pure tradition finding no basis in Torah instructions. Messiah gives Israel the understanding that washed, or unwashed hands do not change a man, or woman’s heart. That is all that is taking place here.
MARK 7:29 See comments Matthew 15:24 and 15:26.
MARK 7:31 Ten towns full of Efraimites from the north.
MARK 8:1 Of Israel.
MARK 8:2 Without Messiah, Israel’s multitudes remain hungry for truth.
MARK 8:3 Division is not the answer to our hunger for truth. Our own houses are not what He came to build.
MARK 8:3 Efrayimites.
MARK 8:25 Before two-house restoration is revealed, a man is blind to his own heritage and that of other men. Men all look fuzzy and all look the same, like nations, among nations. But when Messiah touches us a second time, or returns to this earth to restore perfect understanding and vision completing the restoration process, then instead of seeing men of Israel as mere uniform trees, The Master’s touch will open our eyes to restoration, with our vision having fully been restored. Ezekiel 34:31 refers to Yisraelites as the men of YAH’s pasture, thus when restoration truth affects an individual, the trees come into focus and the trees of Israel are clearly seen for who they truly are.
MARK 8:26 Because the restoration of Israel is by a personal revelation.
MARK 8:27Yisraelites according to the biblical definition of men.
MARK 9:1 Dawid’s throne, back on earth and restored, ruling all 12 tribes.
MARK 9:1 Speaks of a time just six days later, when the disciples see the kingdom come in a vision before they taste death. They see this on the 7th day after Messiah's prophesy, a type of the millennium, or the age to come.
MARK 9:4 According to Luke and Matthew about His soon-coming atonement in Jerusalem, that opens the way for kingdom entry.
MARK 9:5 They thought that the kingdom had come, not realizing that it was just a vision of the kingdom and as such they were required to build booths and celebrate Tabernacles according to Zachariah 14:16-21. So actually, Peter makes a pretty sharp discernment of kingdom responsibility.
MARK 9:7 Kingdom presence.
MARK 9:7 Notice this is My Son, not The Father’s New Covenant Name.
MARK 9:12 At the return of Messiah the literal Elijah will appear. Malachi 4: 5-6.
MARK 9:13 John the Immerser came for the first advent of Messiah, in Elijah’s spirit and power.
MARK 9:35 A principle for Yisraelite living. Service is the road to greatness. Among nations rulership leads to domination.
MARK 9:42 The little children are the children of Israel.
MARK 9:50 All Torah sacrifices were seasoned with salt a preservative. “Have salt in yourselves” is a Hebraic idiomatic expression, saying in essence “you are the new living Yisraelite sacrifices and as such must season all you do in the kingdom with salt.”
MARK 9:50 “One with another” is a two-house reference.
MARK 10:8 Applies to Messiah and Israel becoming one flesh, as well as the two houses being one again, as well as a man and his wife.
MARK 10:18 In essence Messiah is asking, “Do you realize what you’re saying by calling Me good?” That is freewill recognition of His deity by the young ruler and a confirmation of Messiah's own testimony about Himself, when in John 10 He refers to Himself as the Good Shepherd. This verse has been twisted to mean that Messiah is saying that only The Father is good, but the truth here is just the opposite. Both He and The Father are good and as such He confronts the rich young ruler with this truth.
MARK 10:19 Notice that Messiah teaches Torah to those who are and would be His followers.
MARK 10:25 Peshitta: gemala can mean rope, or camel and here in context means rope.
MARK 10:34 According to Messiah, the nations, or Romans would do the actual killing. Not the Jews.
MARK 10:41 The ten here symbolize Efrayim-Israel, or the 10 tribes who are jealous of their brothers from Judah, for seeking special privilege and position in the family. The Bible calls this a vexation of Efrayim that causes Judah to be the recipient of Efrayim’s jealousy.
MARK 10:42 Further evidence that believers are never referred to as “nations” in Scripture.
MARK 10:52 Early Nazarene Yisraelites were known as members of “The Derech”, after Messiah’s proclamation in John 14:6.
MARK 11:1 These two disciples represent the two houses, who both are called to do their preparation job to prepare the way for His triumphal return to Jerusalem as King of Israel at His second coming.
MARK 11:4 Both houses will begin the restoration with the official arrival of the King to Jerusalem, as the “two ways” of Judah and Efrayim become one.
MARK 11:13 Symbol of national Israel.
MARK 11:14 This was not a curse on the nation as some teach, but a curse on "fruit eating," meaning the fruit from Israel would come from the new wine of Messiah, not the old figs of the Pharisees.
MARK 11:17 The plan was always to gather Israel and make all nations one in Israel.
MARK 12:10 See notes on Matthew 21:33-44.
MARK 12:37 Messiah is both The Son of Dawid and The Master of Dawid, a revelation that can become reality only by a revelation from YAH Himself.
MARK 13:8 Known as Jacob’s Trouble, or Shivlei HaMashiach – the birth pains of Messiah.
MARK 13:10 All Yisraelite nations, who by Messiah's time had already begun to be filled with Efraimites.
MARK 13:13 Of this age.
MARK 13:14 In order to see it, believers must be on earth during the 70th week of Israel.
MARK 13:20 YAH’s one elect is Israel, since YAH does not have two sets of elect, rather two parts to the one elect. If everywhere in the Renewed Covenant “elect” refers to the body of believers, it must also apply here, meaning Renewed Covenant Israel will certainly go through the Great Tribulation.
MARK 13:26 As seen in verse 24, Messiah's return is after the Great Tribulation. Nothing can be plainer.
MARK 13:27 The term four winds throughout Scripture is always speaking of Israel and the ingathering of the exiles as seen in Deuteronomy 30:4, Ezekiel 37:9 and elsewhere. This ingathering has nothing to do with a “rapture” of any church.
MARK 13:30 The rebirth of the state of Israel in 1948 and the recapture of Jerusalem in 1967. The generation that sees these events will be the final generation, or generations.
MARK 13:31 Meaning He taught Torah and His Words were Torah, for only Torah (Genesis-Revelation) cannot pass away.
MARK 14:2 His arrest was scheduled before Passover.
MARK 14:3 In Aramaic the word is garava. Torah would not allow Messiah to be defiled by a leper and so the understanding of “jar merchant” is more probable.
MARK 14:12 The Greek word protos means “before” in this context and certainly not “first.” Most translators have translated protos as “first” instead of “before.” But the Passover is killed and prepared before the first day of Unleavened Bread.
MARK 14:12 They were preparing the actual correct annual Passover, not a lord’s supper or memorial meal. Messiah was following the eternal priestly Zadokite times, which always is on the 3rd day of the week and was one day before the Jewish Preparation Day and Passover that year. See notes for Matthew 26:20.
MARK 14:25 When He consummates the marriage with His collective bride Israel.
MARK 14:52 Probably was John-Mark.
MARK 14:62 A euphemism for YAH as it appears in Psalm 110:5. Messiah pronounced the true Name of YAH as He correctly quoted Psalm 110:5 to show that YAH would sit on the right hand of YAH. According to Jewish man-made fabrication, at that time this was the only crime labeled as blasphemy. We see that in verses 63-64, that they heard the blasphemy and we know that Messiah said nothing other than quote Psalm 110:5. He was killed for saying YAH’s Name. Scripture calls on us to proclaim and declare His Name, just like our Master, even in the face of possible death.
MARK 14:72 Such detail found about Peter's behaviors leads scholars to suggest that Peter is really the author behind Mark’s account.
MARK 15:22 Har of Olives.
MARK 15:26 YAH -Yud Hey Wav Hey.
MARK 15:27 A hint of the two houses, with the repentant thief being a type of Efrayim and the unrepentant a type of Judah, with Messiah holding His hands towards both sinning brothers, beckoning them to come together in Him.
MARK 15:28 Of both houses of Israel.
MARK 15:34 See detailed explanation at footnote for Matthew 27:46.
MARK 15:35 The only way these learned Hebrew scribes could possibly have thought He was seeking Eliyahu, or Elijah in English, was if the words He was crying out were almost exactly like the sound of Eli-Yahu. And it was. He was calling for YAH-u-weh His El, or Eli-YAH-u-weh.
MARK 15:38 Torn into two equal pieces symbolizing equal access to YAH for both houses of redeemed Israel.
MARK 15:39 Based on seeing the veil of the Hekel/Holy Place rent from the Har of Olives, for if he were behind the Temple to the west at “Gordon’s Calvary,” he wouldn’t have seen anything.
MARK 15:42 Approaching the night of Aviv 14 on the incorrect rabbinical Jewish calendar, with Aviv 15 being an annual Shabbat. In fact that day was the biblical 15th with the eternal priestly Passover the night before.
MARK 16:2 Just before dawn of the weekly Shabbat of Aviv 18.
MARK 16:8 Verses 9-20 do appear in the Peshitta. However they do not appear in the four oldest Greek manuscripts. Some consider them apostolic, others see them as scribal additions.
MARK 16:18 A idiomatic term, meaning believers shall be able to “handle their enemies” in Messiah’s Name and authority. That includes commanding and extracting demons.
MARK 16:19 As per Psalm 110:5.
