The Besorah According To Luke-Luka
To All Nations
1 Since many have undertaken to set forth in order a declaration of those things that are most surely believed among us,
2 Even as they delivered them to us, by those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and avadim of the word;
3 It seemed tov to me also, having had perfect binah of all things from the very beginning, to write to you in order, most excellent Theophilos,
4 That you might know the certainty of those things, in which you have been instructed.
5 There was in the yamim of Herod, the melech of the province of Yahudah, a certain kohen named Zacharyah, of the division of Aviyah: and his isha was one of the daughters of Aharon and her name was Elisheva.
6 And they were both tzadikim before The Master YHUH, having their halacha in all the chukim and mishpatim of The Master YHUH blameless.
7 And they had no child because Elisheva was barren and they both were now advanced in years.
8 And it came to pass, that while he served in the kohen’s office before YHUH in the order of his division,
9 According to the custom of the kohen’s office, he was chosen by lot to burn incense when he went into the Beit HaMikdash of The Master YHUH.
10 And the whole multitude of the people were making tefillot outside at the time of incense.
11 And there appeared to him a heavenly malach of The Master YHUH standing on the right side of the altar of incense.
12 And when Zacharyah saw him, he was troubled and fear fell upon him.
13 But the heavenly malach said to him, Fear not, Zacharyah: for your tefillah is heard; and your isha Elisheva shall bear you a son and you shall call his name Yochanan.
14 And you shall have simcha and gilah; and many shall rejoice at his birth.
15 For he shall be great in the sight of The Master YHUH and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with The Ruach Hakodesh, even from his eema’s womb.
16 And many of the children of Yisrael shall he return to The Master YHUH their Ahloha.
17 And he shall go before Him in The Ruach and Power of Eli-Yahu, to turn the levavot of the ahvot to the children, and the disobedient to the chochmah of the just; to make ready an emet people prepared for The Master YHUH.
18 And Zacharyah said to the heavenly malach, How shall I know this? For I am an old man and my isha advanced in years.
19 And the heavenly malach answering said to him, I am Gavriel, that stands in the Presence of YHUH; and am sent to speak to you and to show you this tov news.
20 And, see, you shall be dumb and not able to speak, until the yom that these things shall be performed because you believed not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season.
21 And the people waited for Zacharyah and marveled that he waited so long in the Beit HaMikdash.
22 And when he came out, he could not speak to them: and they perceived that he had seen a vision in the Beit HaMikdash: for he beckoned to them and remained dumb.
23 And it came to pass, that, as soon as the yamim of his service were accomplished, he departed to his own bayit.
24 And after those yamim his isha Elisheva conceived and hid herself five chodashem, saying,
25 The Master YHUH has dealt with me in the yamim in which He looked on me, to take away my reproach among men.
26 And in the sixth chodesh the heavenly malach Gavriel was sent from YHUH to a city of Galil, named Natzeret,
27 To a virgin engaged to a man whose name was Yoseph, from the bayit of Dawid; and the virgin’s name was Miryam.
28 And the heavenly malach came in to her and said, Greetings, you that are highly favored, YHUH is with you: favored are you among women.
29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying and wondered in her mind what manner of greeting this should be.
30 And the heavenly malach said to her, Fear not, Miryam: for you have found chen with YHUH.
31 And, see, you shall conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son and shall call His Name YAHUSHA.
32 He shall be great and shall be called The Son of the Highest: and The Master YHUH Ahloha shall give to Him the kesay of His abba Dawid:
33 And He shall reign over Beit Yaakov le-olam-va-ed; and of His malchut there shall be no end.
34 Then said Miryam to the heavenly malach, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
35 And the heavenly malach answered and said to her, The Ruach Hakodesh shall come upon you and The Power of El-Elyon shall overshadow you: therefore also that Kadosh-One which shall be born from you shall be called The Son of YHUH.
36 And, see, your cousin Elisheva, she has also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth chodesh with her, who was called barren.
37 For with YHUH nothing shall be impossible.
38 And Miryam said, See the female eved of The Master YHUH; be it to me according to your word. And the heavenly malach departed from her.
39 And Miryam arose in those yamim and went into the hill country with speed, into a city of Yahudah;
40 And entered into the bayit of Zacharyah and greeted Elisheva.
41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisheva heard the greeting of Miryam, the baby leaped in her womb; and Elisheva was filled with The Ruach Hakodesh:
42 And she spoke out with a loud voice and said, Blessed are you among women and favored is the fruit of your womb.
43 And who am I that the eema of my Master should come to me?
44 For see, as soon as the voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the baby leaped in my womb for simcha.
45 And favored is she that believed: for there shall be an accomplishing of those things that were told her from The Master YHUH.
46 And Miryam said, My being does magnify The Master YHUH,
47 And my ruach has rejoiced in Ahloha my Savior.
48 For He has regarded the low estate of His female eved: for, see, from now on all generations shall call me favored.
49 For He that is mighty has done to me great things; and kadosh is His Name.
50 And His rachamim is on them that fear Him from generation to generation.
51 He has showed strength with His Arm; He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their levavot.
52 He has put down the mighty from their seats and exalted them of low degree.
53 He has filled the hungry with tov things; and the rich He has sent empty away.
54 He has helped His son Yisrael, in remembrance of His rachamim;
55 As He spoke to our ahvot, to Avraham and to his zera le-olam-va-ed.
56 And Miryam stayed with her about three chodashem and returned to her own bayit.
57 Now Elisheva’s full time came that she should be delivered; and she brought forth a son.
58 And her neighbors and her cousins heard how YHUH had showed great rachamim upon her; and they rejoiced with her.
59 And it came to pass, that on the eighth yom they came to perform brit-milah on the child; and they called him Zacharyah, after the name of his abba.
60 And his eema answered and said, Not so; but he shall be called Yochanan.
61 And they said to her, There is no one from your mishpacha that is called by this name.
62 And they made signs to his abba, how he would have him called.
63 And he asked for a writing tablet and wrote, saying, His name is Yochanan. And they all marveled.
64 And his mouth was opened immediately and his tongue loosed and he spoke and praised YHUH.
65 And fear came on all that dwelt all around them: and all these sayings were noised abroad throughout all the hill country of province of Yahudah.
66 And all they that heard them laid them up in their levavot, saying, What manner of boy shall this be! And the hand of The Master YHUH was with him.
67 And his abba Zacharyah was filled with The Ruach Hakodesh and prophesied, saying,
68 Blessed be The Master YHUH the Ahloha of Yisrael; for He has visited and redeemed His people,
69 And has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the bayit of His eved Dawid;
70 As He spoke by the mouth of His kadosh neviim, who have been since the olam hazeh began:
71 That we should be saved from our enemies and from the hand of all that hate us;
72 To perform the rachamim promised to our ahvot and to remember His kadosh brit;
73 The oath that He swore to our abba Avraham,
74 That He would grant to us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve Him without fear,
75 In set apartness and tzedakah before Him, all the yamim of our chayim.
76 And you, child, shall be called the navi of El-Elyon: for you shall go before the face of The Master YHUH to prepare His derachot;
77 To give the da’at of salvation to His people by the remission of their sins,
78 Through the tender rachamim of our Ahloha; by which the Dayspring from on high has visited us,
79 To give Ohr to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the derech of shalom.
80 And the child grew and grew strong in ruach and was in the deserts until the yom of his open showing to Yisrael.
2 And it came to pass in those yamim, that there went out a decree from Kaiser Augustus, that all the land should be registered.
2 And this registration was made before Quirinius was governor of Syria Aram.
3 And all went to be registered, every one to his own city.
4 And Yoseph also went up from Galil, out of the city of Natzeret, into the province of Yahudah, to the city of Dawid, which is called Beth-Lechem; because he was of the bayit and lineage of Dawid:
5 To be registered with Miryam his engaged isha, being great with child.
6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the yamim were filled that she should give birth.
7 And she brought forth her bachor Son and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes, and laid Him in a sukkah feeding trough; because there was no room for them in the family dwelling.
8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by lyla.
9 And, see, the heavenly malach of The Master YHUH came upon them and the tifereth of YHUH shone around them: and they were greatly afraid.
10 And the heavenly malach said to them, Fear not: for, see, I bring you tov news of great simcha, which shall be to all the people of Yisrael.
11 For to you is born this yom in the city of Dawid a Savior, which is The Moshiach The Master YHUH.
12 And this shall be your ot; You shall find the baby wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a sukkah feeding trough.
13 And suddenly there was with the heavenly malach a multitude of the heavenly malachim praising YHUH and saying,
14 Tifereth to YHUH in the highest and on earth shalom and tov among men, with whom He is pleased.
15 And it came to pass, as the heavenly malachim were gone away from them into the shamayim, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go to Beth-Lechem and see this thing which has come to pass, which The Master YHUH has made known to us.
16 And they came with speed and found Miryam and Yoseph and the baby lying in a sukkah-feeding trough.
17 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this Child.
18 And all they that heard it marveled at those things which were told them by the shepherds.
19 But Miryam kept all these things and pondered them in her lev.
20 And the shepherds returned, esteeming and praising YHUH for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told to them.
21 And when eight yamim were accomplished for the brit-milah of the Child, His Name was called YAHUSHA, which was so named by the heavenly malach before He was conceived in the womb.
22 And when the yamim of her cleansing according to the Torah of Moshe were accomplished, they brought Him to Yahrushalayim, to present Him before The Master YHUH;
23 As it is written in the Torah of The Master YHUH, Every male that opens the womb shall be called kadosh to The Master YHUH;
24 And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the Torah of The Master YHUH, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.
25 And, see, there was a man in Yahrushalayim, whose name was Shimon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the comforting restoration of Yisrael: and The Ruach Hakodesh was upon him.
26 And it was revealed to him by The Ruach Hakodesh, that he should not see death, before he had seen The Master YHUH’s Moshiach.
27 And he came by The Ruach into the Beit HaMikdash: and when the parents brought in the Child YAHUSHA, to do for Him after the command of the Torah,
28 Then he took Him up in his arms and blessed YHUH and said,
29 YHUH, now allow Your eved to depart in shalom, according to Your Word:
30 For my eyes have seen Your YAHUSHA,
31 That You have prepared before the face of all peoples;
32 An Ohr to unveil the goyim and the tifereth of Your people Yisrael.
33 And Yoseph and His eema marveled at those things that were spoken about Him.
34 And Shimon blessed them and said to Miryam His eema, See, this Child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Yisrael; and for an ot which shall be spoken against;
35 And a sword shall pierce through your own being also, that the thoughts of many levavot may be revealed.
36 And there was one Channa, a neviyah, the daughter of Phenu-El, of the tribe of Asher: she was advanced in years and had lived with a husband seven years from her virginity;
37 And she was a widow of about eighty-four years, who departed not from the Beit HaMikdash, but served YHUH with fasting and tefillot lyla and yom.
38 And she coming in that instant gave hodu likewise to The Master YHUH and spoke of Him to all them that looked for geulah in Yahrushalayim.
39 And when they had performed all things according to the Torah of The Master YHUH, they returned into Galil, to their own city Natzeret.
40 And the Child grew and became strong in Ruach, filled with chochmah: and the rachamim of YHUH was upon Him.
41 Now His parents went to Yahrushalayim every year at the moed of the Pesach.
42 And when He was twelve years old, they went up to Yahrushalayim for the moed.
43 And when they had fulfilled the yamim of Chag Matzoth, as they returned, the Child YAHUSHA stayed behind in Yahrushalayim; and Yoseph and His eema did not know it.
44 But thinking He was with the children in their company, they went a yom’s journey; and they sought Him among their relatives and acquaintances.
45 And when they found Him not, they turned back again to Yahrushalayim, seeking Him.
46 And it came to pass, that after three yamim they found Him in the Beit HaMikdash, sitting in the midst of the Torah teachers, both hearing them and asking them questions.
47 And all that heard Him were astonished at His binah and answers.
48 And when they saw Him, they were amazed: and His eema said to Him, Son, why have You dealt with us like this? See, Your abba and I have sought You anxiously.
49 And He said to them, How is it that you sought Me? Did you not know that I must be about My Abba’s business?
50 And they understood not the saying that He spoke to them.
51 And He went down with them and came to Natzeret and was subject to them: but His eema kept all these sayings in her lev.
52 And YAHUSHA increased in chochmah and stature and in chen with YHUH and man.
3 Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Kaiser, Pontius Pilate being governor of the province of Yahudah and Herod being district ruler of Galil and his brother Philip district ruler of Yetur and of the region of Trachonitis and Lusanias the district ruler of Abilene,
2 Annas and Caiaphas being the High kohanim, The Word of YHUH came to Yochanan the son of Zacharyah in the wilderness.
3 And he came into all the country around Yarden, proclaiming the mikvah of teshuvah for the remission of sins;
4 As it is written in the scroll of the words of Yeshayahu the navi, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare the derech of The Master YHUH, make His paths straight.
5 Every valley shall be filled and every har and hill shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight and the rough derachot shall be made smooth;
6 And all flesh shall see the salvation of YHUH.
7 Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be immersed by him, O generation of vipers, who has warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
8 Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of teshuvah and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Avraham as our abba: for I say to you, That YHUH is able of these stones to raise up children to Avraham.
9 And now also the axe is laid to the root of the eytzim: every eytz therefore which brings not forth tov fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
10 And the people asked him, saying, What shall we do then?
11 He answered and said to them, He that has two coats, let him impart to him that has none; and he that has food, let him do likewise.
12 Then came also tax collectors to be immersed and said to him, Teacher, what shall we do?
13 And he said to them, take no more than that which is appointed to you.
14 And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying: And what shall we do? And he said to them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages.
15 And as the people were in expectation and all men wondered in their levavot about Yochanan, whether he were The Moshiach, or not;
16 Yochanan answered, saying to them all, I indeed mikvah you with mayim; but one mightier than I is coming, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to unloose: He shall mikvah you with The Ruach Hakodesh and with fire:
17 Whose winnowing fork is in His hand and He will thoroughly purge His floor, and will gather the wheat into His storehouse; but the chaff He will burn with unquenchable fire.
18 And many other things in his exhortation he proclaimed to the people.
19 But Herod the district ruler, being rebuked by him for Herodias his brother Philip’s isha and for all the evils which Herod had done,
20 Added this also to them, that he locked up Yochanan in prison.
21 Now when all the people were immersed, it came to pass, that YAHUSHA also being immersed and making tefillot, the shamayim were opened,
22 And The Ruach Hakodesh descended in a bodily shape like a yonah upon Him and a voice came from the shamayim, which said, You are My beloved Son; in You I AM well pleased!
23 And YAHUSHA Himself was beginning to be about thirty years of age; legally and with the priestly authority of the Torah, The Son of Yahusef, who came from Eli,
24 Who was from Mattityahu, who was from Lewi, who was from Meleki, who was from Yanna, who was from Yoseph,
25 Who was from Mattityahu, who was from Ahmos, who was from Nachum, who was from Hesli, who was from Nogah,
26 Who was from Maath, who was from Mattityahu, who was from Shimi, who was from Yoseph, who was from Yahudah,
27 Who was from Yochanan, who was from Rephayah, who was from Zerubbavel, who was from Shealtiel, who was from of Neri,
28 Who was from Meleki, who was from Addi, who was from Qosam, who was from Elmodam, who was from Er,
29 Who was from Yehoshua, who was from Eliezer, who was from Yorim, who was from Mattityahu, who was from Lewi,
30 Who was from Shimon, who was from Yahudah, who was from Yoseph, who was from Yonan, who was from Elyakim,
31 Who was from Melea, who was from Menna, who was from Mattatha, who was from Nathan, who was from Dawid,
32 Who was from Yishai, who was from Oved, who was from Boaz, who was from Salmon, who was from Nachshon,
33 Who was from Aminadav, who was from Aram, who was from Chetzron, who was from Peretz, who was from Yahudah,
34 Who was from Yaakov, who was from Yitzchak, who was from Avraham, who was from Terach, who was from Nachor,
35 Who was from Saruch, who was from Re-u, who was from Pheleg, who was from Ever, who was from Shela,
36 Who was from Qeynan, who was from Arpakshad, who was from Shem, who was from Noach, who was from Lamech,
37 Who was from Methushelach, who was from Chanok, who was from Yared, who was from Mahala-El, who was from Kanaan,
38 Who was from Enosh, who was from Sheth, who was from Ahdahm, who was from Ahloha.
4 And YAHUSHA being full of The Ruach Hakodesh returned from the Yarden and was led by The Ruach into the wilderness,
2 Being forty yamim tested of s.a.tan. And in those yamim He did eat nothing: and when they were ended, He afterward was hungry.
3 And s.a.tan said to Him, Since You are The Son of Ahloha, command this stone that it be made lechem.
4 And YAHUSHA answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by lechem alone, but by every Word of YHUH.
5 And s.a.tan, taking Him up into a high har, showed Him all the malchutim of the olam hazeh in a moment of time.
6 And s.a.tan said to Him, All this power will I give You and the tifereth of them: for that is delivered to me; and to whomever I will, I give it.
7 If You therefore will worship me, all shall be Yours.
8 And YAHUSHA answered and said to him, Get behind Me, s.a.tan: for it is written, You shall worship YHUH your Ahloha and Him only shall you serve.
9 And he brought Him to Yahrushalayim and set Him on a pinnacle of the Beit HaMikdash and said to Him, Since You are The Son of Ahloha, cast yourself down from here:
10 For it is written, He shall give His heavenly malachim charge over You, to keep You:
11 And in their hands they shall bear You up, lest at any time You dash Your foot against a stone.
12 And YAHUSHA answering said to him, It is said, You shall not try The Master YHUH your Ahloha.
13 And when s.a.tan had ended all of the trial, he departed from Him for a while.
14 And YAHUSHA returned in The Power of The Ruach into Galil: and there was published His fame through all the regions all around.
15 And He taught in their synagogues, being esteemed by all.
16 And He came to Natzeret, where He had been brought up: and, according to His practice, He went into the synagogue on The Shabbat and stood up to read.
17 And there was delivered to Him the Scroll of the navi Yeshayahu. And when He had opened the scroll, He found the place where it was written,
18 The Ruach of The Master YHUH is upon Me because He has anointed Me to proclaim The Besorah to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim deliverance to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to send deliverance to those that are devastated,
19 To proclaim the acceptable year of The Master YHUH.
20 And He rolled up the scroll and He gave it again to the shamesh and sat down. And the eyes of all of those that were in the synagogue were glued on Him.
21 And He began to say to them, This yom is this Katuv fulfilled in your ears.
22 And all bore Him witness and wondered at the favorable words that proceeded out of His mouth. And they said, Is not this Moshiach Ben Yoseph?
23 And He said to them, You will surely say to Me this mishle, Physician, heal Yourself: whatever we have heard done in Kfar Nachum, do also here in Your country.
24 And He said, Truly I say to you, No navi is accepted in his own country.
25 But I tell you the emet; many widows were in Beit Yisrael in the yamim of Eli-Yahu, when the shamayim were shut up three years and six chodashem, when great famine was throughout all the land;
26 But to none of them was Eli-Yahu sent, except to Tsarephath, a city of Tsidon, to a woman that was a widow.
27 And many lepers were in Beit Yisrael in the time of Elisha the navi; and none of them was cleansed, except Naaman the Aramean.
28 And all those in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath,
29 And rose up and threw Him out of the city and led Him to the brow of the hill on which their city was built, that they might cast Him down headlong.
30 But He passing through the midst of them went His derech,
31 And came down to Kfar Nachum, a city of Galil and He taught them on The Shabbat.
32 And they were astonished at His teaching: for His Word was with authority.
33 And in the synagogue there was a man, who had an unclean ruach of a shed and cried out with a loud voice,
34 Saying, Leave us alone; what have we to do with You,Yahushua of Natzeret? Have You come to destroy us? I know You who You are; the Kadosh-One of YHUH.
35 And YAHUSHA rebuked him, saying, Be silent and come out of him. And when the shed had thrown him in their midst, he came out of him and hurt him not.
36 And they were all amazed and spoke among themselves, saying, What a Word is this! For with authority and Power He commands the shedim and they come out.
37 And His fame went out into every place from that country all around.
38 And He arose out of the synagogue and entered into Shimon’s bayit. And Shimon’s eema-in-law was taken with a great fever; and they asked Him concerning her.
39 And He stood over her and rebuked the fever; and it left her: and immediately she stood and waited on them.
40 Now when the shemesh was setting, all they that had any sick with diverse diseases brought them to Him; and He laid His Hands on each one of them and healed them.
41 And shedim also came out of many, crying out and saying, You are The Moshiach The Son of Ahloha. And He rebuking them allowed them not to speak: for they knew that He was The Moshiach.
42 And when it was yom, He departed and went into a desert place: and the people sought Him and came to Him and tried to keep Him from leaving them.
43 And He said to them, I must proclaim the malchut of YHUH to other cities also: for that reason I AM sent.
44 And He proclaimed in the synagogues of Galil.
5 And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon Him to hear The Word of YHUH, He stood by the Lake of Gennesaret,
2 And saw two boats standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them and were washing their nets.
3 And He entered into one of the boats, which was Shimon’s and asked that he would pull out a little from the land. And He sat down and taught the people out of the ship.
4 Now when He had ceased speaking, He said to Shimon, Pull out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.
5 And Shimon answering said to Him, Master, we have toiled all lyla and have taken nothing: nevertheless at Your Word I will let down the net.
6 And when they had this done, they caught a great multitude of fishes: and their net broke.
7 And they beckoned to their partners, who were in the other ship, that they should come to help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink.
8 When Shimon Kefa saw it, he fell down at YAHUSHA’s knees saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Master.
9 For he was astonished and all that were with Him, at the catch of the fishes which they had taken:
10 And so was also Yaakov and Yochanan, the sons of Zavdi, who were partners with Shimon. And YAHUSHA said to Shimon, Fear not; from now on you shall catch men.
11 And when they had brought their boats to land, they forsook all and followed Him.
12 And it came to pass, when He was in a certain city, see a man full of leprosy: who seeing YAHUSHA fell on his face and asked Him, saying, Master, if You will, You can make me clean.
13 And He put forth His hand and touched him, saying, I will: be clean. And immediately the leprosy departed from him.
14 And He ordered him to tell no man, But go and show yourself to the kohen and offer for your cleansing, what Moshe commanded, as a testimony to them.
15 But all the more His fame went all around: and great multitudes came together to hear and to be healed by Him of their infirmities.
16 And He withdrew Himself into the wilderness and made tefillah.
17 And it came to pass on a certain yom, as He was teaching, that there were Prushim and teachers of the Torah sitting by, who were come out of every town of Galil and the province of Yahudah and Yahrushalayim: and The Power of The Master YHUH was present to heal them.
18 And, see, men brought in a quilt a man who was taken with a paralysis: and they sought a means to bring him in and to lay him before Him.
19 And when they could not find how they might bring him in because of the multitude, they went up to the roof and let him down through the tiling with his quilt into the midst before YAHUSHA.
20 And when He saw their emunah, He said to him, Man, your sins are forgiven you.
21 And the Sophrim and the Prushim began to reason, saying, Who is this who speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but Ahloha alone?
22 But when YAHUSHA perceived their thoughts, He answering said to them, What are you reasoning in your levavot?
23 Which is easier, to say, Your sins are forgiven you; or to say, Rise up and walk?
24 But that you may know that The Ben Ahdahm has Power upon earth to forgive sins, (He said to the sick of the paralysis,) I say to you, Arise and take up your quilt and go into your bayit.
25 And immediately he rose up before them and took up that on which he lay and departed to his own bayit, esteeming YAHUSHA.
26 And they were all amazed and they esteemed YHUH and were filled with fear, saying, We have seen strange things today.
27 And after these things He went forth and saw a tax collector, named Lewi, sitting at the tax office: and He said to him, Follow Me.
28 And he left all, rose up and followed Him.
29 And Lewi made Him a great reception in his own bayit: and there was a great company of tax collectors and of others that sat down with them.
30 But the Sophrim and Prushim grumbled against His talmidim, saying, Why do You eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?
31 And YAHUSHA answering said to them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick.
32 I came not to call the tzadikim, but sinners to teshuvah.
33 And they said to Him, Why do the talmidim of Yochanan fast often and make tefillot and likewise the talmidim of the Prushim; but Yours eat and drink?
34 And He said to them, Can you make the children of The Bridegroom fast, while The Bridegroom is still with them?
35 But the yamim will come, when The Bridegroom shall be taken away from them and then shall they fast in those yamim.
36 And He spoke also a parable to them; No man puts a piece of a new garment upon an old; otherwise the new one makes a tear and also the piece that was taken out of the new one does not match the old.
37 And no man puts new wine into old wineskins, since then the new wine will burst the wineskins and be spilled and the wineskins shall perish.
38 But new wine must be put into new wineskins; and both are preserved.
39 No man also having drunk old wine immediately desires new: for he said, The old is better.
6 And it came to pass on the second Shabbat after the first, that He went through the grain fields; and His talmidim plucked the ears of grain and did eat, rubbing them in their hands.
2 And certain of the Prushim said to them, Why do You do that which is prohibited in Torah on The Shabbat?
3 And YAHUSHA answering them said, Have you not read so much as this, what Dawid did, when he was hungry and they who were with him;
4 How he went into the Bayit of The Master YHUH and did take and eat the Lechem ha Panayim, and gave also to those that were with him; which it is not lawful to eat except for the kohanim alone?
5 And He said to them, Therefore The Ben Ahdahm is Master also of The Shabbat.
6 And it came to pass also on another Shabbat, that He entered into the synagogue and taught: and there was a man whose right hand was withered.
7 And the Sophrim and Prushim watched Him, whether He would heal on The Shabbat; that they might find an accusation against Him.
8 But He knew their thoughts and said to the man who had the withered hand, Rise up and stand forth in the midst. And he arose and stood forth.
9 Then said YAHUSHA to them, I will ask you one thing; Is it lawful on The Shabbat to do tov, or to do evil? To save chayim, or to destroy it?
10 And looking all around upon them all, He said to the man, Stretch forth your hand! And he did so: and his hand was restored whole as the other.
11 And they were filled with bitterness; and discussed with each other what they might do to YAHUSHA.
12 And it came to pass in those yamim, that He went out into a har to make tefillah and continued all lyla in tefillah to YHUH.
13 And when it was yom, He called to Himself His talmidim: and from them He chose twelve, whom also He named shlichim.
14 Shimon (whom He also named Kefa) and Andri his brother, Yaakov and Yochanan, Philip and Bartholomi,
15 Mattityahu and Toma, Yaakov the son of Alphai and Shimon called Zealot,
16 And Yahudah the brother of Yaakov and Yahudah from Qerioth, who also was the traitor.
17 And He came down with them and stood in the plain and the crowd of His talmidim and a great multitude of people out of all the provinces of Yahudah and Yahrushalayim and from the sea coast of Tsor and Tsidon, who came to hear Him and to be healed of their diseases;
18 And they that were vexed with shedim: and they were healed.
19 And the whole multitude sought to touch Him: for there went Power out of Him and healed them all.
20 And He lifted up His eyes on His talmidim and said, Blessed are you poor: for yours is the malchut of YHUH.
21 Blessed are you that hunger now: for you shall be filled. Blessed are you that weep now: for you shall laugh.
22 Blessed are you, when men shall hate you and when they shall separate you from their company and shall reproach you and publish your names as evil, for The Ben Ahdahm’s sake.
23 Rejoice in that yom and leap for simcha: for, see, your reward is great in the shamayim: for in the like manner did their ahvot to the neviim.
24 But woe to you that are rich! For you have received your consolation.
25 Woe to you that are full! For you shall hunger. Woe to you that laugh now! For you shall mourn and weep.
26 Woe to you, when all men shall speak well of you! For so did their ahvot to the false neviim.
27 But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do tov to them who hate you,
28 Bless them that curse you and make tefillah for them who despitefully use you and burden you.
29 And to him that smites you on one cheek offer also the other; and he that takes away your robe forbid him not to take your shirt also.
30 Give to every man that asks from you; and of him that takes away your goods do not ask them to return it.
31 And as you would desire that men should do to you, do also to them likewise.
32 For if you only love them who love you, what blessing do you have? For sinners also love those that love them.
33 And if you only do tov to them who do tov to you, what blessing have you? For even sinners also do the same.
34 And if you lend to them from whom you tikvah to receive again, what blessing have you? For sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.
35 But love you your enemies and do tov and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward shall be great and you shall be the children of El-Elyon: for He is kind to the thankless and to the evil.
36 Be therefore full of rachamim, as your Abba also is full of rachamim.
37 Judge not and you shall not be judged: condemn not and you shall not be condemned: forgive and you shall be forgiven:
38 Give and it shall be given to you; tov measure, pressed down and shaken together and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure with which you measure it shall be measured back to you again.
39 And He spoke a parable to them, Can the blind lead the blind? Shall they not both fall into the ditch?
40 The talmid is not above His Master: but every one that is perfect shall be as His Master.
41 And why do you see the mote that is in your brother’s eye, but perceive not the beam that is in your own eye?
42 Or, how can you say to your brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in your eye, when you yourself see not the beam that is in your own eye? You hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of your own eye and then shall you see clearly to pull out the mote that is in your brother’s eye.
43 For a tov eytz brings not forth corrupt fruit; neither does a corrupt eytz bring forth tov fruit.
44 For every eytz is known by its own fruit. For from thorns men do not gather figs, nor from a bramble bush do they gather grapes.
45 A tov man out of the tov treasure of his lev brings forth that which is tov; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his lev brings forth that which is evil: for out of the abundance of the lev his mouth speaks.
46 And why do you call Me, Master-Adon, Master-Adon and do not the things that I say?
47 Whoever comes to Me and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you to whom he is like
48 He is like a man who built a bayit and dug deep and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that bayit and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.
49 But he that hears and does not what I say, is like a man that built a bayit upon the earth without a foundation; against which the stream did beat vehemently and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that bayit was great.
7 Now when He had ended all His sayings in the audience of the people, He entered into Kfar Nachum.
2 And a certain centurion’s eved, who was dear to him, was sick and ready to die.
3 And when he heard of YAHUSHA, he sent zechanim of the Yahudim, asking Him that He would come and heal his eved.
4 And when they came to YAHUSHA, they asked Him immediately, saying, That he was worthy for whom He should do this:
5 For he loves our nation and he has built us a synagogue.
6 Then YAHUSHA went with them. And when He was now not far from the bayit, the centurion sent chaverim to Him, saying to Him, Master, trouble not yourself: for I am not worthy that You should enter under my roof:
7 Therefore neither thought I myself worthy to come to You: but just say Your Word and my eved shall be healed.
8 For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers and I say to one, Go and he goes; and to another, Come and he comes; and to my eved, Do this and he does it.
9 When YAHUSHA heard these things, He marveled at him and turned around and said to the people that followed Him, I say to you, I have not found so great emunah, no, not in Yisrael.
10 And they that were sent, returning to the bayit, found the eved whole that had been sick.
11 And it came to pass the yom after, that He went into a city called Naim; and many of His talmidim went with Him and many people.
12 Now when He came near to the gate of the city, see, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his eema and she was a widow: and many people of the city were with her.
13 And when YAHUSHA saw her, He had rachamim on her and said to her, Weep not!
14 And He came and touched the casket: and they that carried him stood still. And He said, Young man, I say to you, arise!
15 And he that was dead sat up and began to speak. And He delivered him to his eema.
16 And there came a fear on all: and they esteemed YHUH, saying, That a great Navi has risen up among us; and, That Ahloha has visited His people.
17 And this news about Him went forth throughout all the province of Yahudah and throughout the entire region all around.
18 And the talmidim of Yochanan showed him of all these things.
19 And Yochanan calling to him two of His talmidim sent them to YAHUSHA, saying, Are You He that should come? Or, do we look for another?
20 When the men were come to Him, they said, Yochanan ha Matbeel has sent us to You, saying, Are You He that should come? Or, should we look for another?
21 And in that same hour He cured many of their infirmities and plagues and shedim; and to many that were blind He gave them sight.
22 Then YAHUSHA answering said to them, Go your way and tell Yochanan what things you have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised and to the poor The Besorah is proclaimed.
23 And favored is he, who does not stumble because of Me.
24 And when the messengers of Yochanan had departed, He began to speak to the people concerning Yochanan, What went you out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind?
25 But what went you out for to see? A man clothed in soft garments? See, those who are splendidly dressed and live delicately, are in melechim’s courts.
26 But what went you out to see? A navi? Yes, I say to you and much more than a navi.
27 This is he, of whom it is written, See, I send My messenger and he shall prepare the derech before Me.
28 For I say to you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater navi than Yochanan ha Matbeel: but he that is least in the malchut of YHUH is greater than him.
29 And all the people that heard Him, even the tax collectors, declared Ahloha to be tzadik, being immersed by the mikvah of Yochanan.
30 But the Prushim and Torah-teachers rejected the will of YHUH for themselves, not being immersed by him.
31 And YAHUSHA said, To what shall I liken the men of this nation? And what are they like?
32 They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling one to another and saying, We have played the flute for you and you have not danced; we have lamented for you and you have not wept.
33 For Yochanan ha Matbeel came neither eating lechem nor drinking wine; and you say, That he has a shed.
34 The Ben Ahdahm has come eating and drinking; and you say, See a gluttonous man and a wine drinker, a chaver of tax collectors and sinners!
35 But chochmah is justified by all its works.
36 And one of the Prushim desired that He would eat with him. And He went into the Prush’s bayit and sat down to eat.
37 And, see, a woman in the city, who was a sinner, when she knew that YAHUSHA sat to eat in the Prush’s bayit, brought an alabaster vase of oil,
38 And stood at His feet behind Him weeping and began to wash His feet with tears and did wipe them with the hairs of her head and kissed His feet and anointed them with oil.
39 Now when the Prush who had invited Him saw it, he spoke within himself, saying, This Man, if He were a navi, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that touches Him: for she is a sinner.
40 And YAHUSHA answering said to him, Shimon, I have something to say to you. And he said, Master, say it.
41 There was a certain creditor who had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence and the other fifty.
42 And when they had nothing to pay, he forgave them both. Tell Me therefore, which of them will love him most?
43 Shimon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And He said to him, You have rightly judged.
44 And He turned to the woman and said to Shimon, See this woman? I entered into your bayit, you gave Me no mayim for My feet: but she has washed My feet with tears and wiped them with the hairs of her head.
45 You gave Me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in has not ceased to kiss My feet.
46 My head with oil you did not anoint: but this woman has anointed My feet with perfume.
47 Therefore I say to you, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little.
48 And He said to her, Your sins are forgiven.
49 And they that sat at the shulchan with Him began to say within themselves, Who is this that forgives sins also?
50 And He said to the woman, Your emunah has saved you; go in shalom.
8 And it came to pass afterward, that He went throughout every city and village, proclaiming and showing The Besorah of the malchut of YHUH: and the twelve were with Him,
2 And certain women, who had been healed of shedim and infirmities, Miryam called Magdala, out of whom were expelled seven shedim,
3 And Yochana the isha of Chuza Herod’s manager and Shoshanna and many others, who attended to Him from their substance.
4 And when many people were gathered together and had come to Him out of every city, He spoke by a parable:
5 A sower went out to sow his zera: and as he sowed, some fell by the wayside; and it was trodden down and the fowls of the air devoured it.
6 And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it sprung up, it withered away because it lacked moisture.
7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it and choked it.
8 And some fell on tov ground and sprang up and produced fruit a hundredfold. And when He had said these things, He cried, He that has ears to hear let him hear.
9 And His talmidim asked Him, What is this parable about?
10 And He said, To you it is given to know the sods of the malchut of YHUH: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see and hearing they might not understand.
11 Now the parable is this: The zera is The Word of YHUH.
12 Those by the wayside are those that hear; then comes s.a.tan and takes away the word out of their levavot, lest they should believe and be saved.
13 Those on the rock are those, who, when they hear, receive the word with simcha; and these have no root, which for a while believe and in time of trial fall away.
14 And that which fell among thorns are they, who, when they have heard, go forth and are choked with the cares and riches and pleasures of this chayim and bring no fruit to perfection.
15 But that zera on the tov ground are those, who in an honest and tov lev, having heard the word, keep it and bring forth fruit with patience.
16 No man, when he has lit a candle, covers it with a vessel, or puts it under a bed; but sets it on a menorah that those who enter in may see the ohr.
17 For nothing is secret that shall not be made manifest; neither anything hidden, that shall not be known and come out.
18 Be careful therefore how you hear: for whoever has, to him shall be given; and whoever has not, from him shall be taken even that which he seems to have.
19 Then came to Him His eema and His brothers and could not come to Him because of the crowd.
20 And it was told to Him by certain men who said, Your eema and Your brothers stand outside, desiring to see You.
21 And He answered and said to them, My eema and My Yisraelite brothers are those who hear The Word of YHUH and are doing it.
22 Now it came to pass on a certain yom, that He went into a ship with His talmidim: and He said to them, Let us go over to the other side of the lake. And they set out.
23 But as they sailed He fell asleep: and there came down a storm of wind on the lake; and they were filled with mayim and were in jeopardy.
24 And they came to Him and awoke Him, saying, Master, Master, we perish. Then He arose and rebuked the wind and the raging of the mayim: and they ceased and there was a calm.
25 And He said to them, Where is your emunah? And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this; for He commands even the winds and mayim and they obey Him?
26 And they arrived at the country of the Gadarenes, which is opposite Galil.
27 And when He went forth to land, there met Him out of the province a certain man, who had a shed a long time and wore no clothes, neither stayed in any bayit, but in the tombs.
28 When he saw YAHUSHA, he cried out and fell down before Him and with a loud voice said, What do we have in common,Yahushua, Son of El-Elyon? I beg You, torment me not.
29 For He had commanded the shed to come out of the man. For often it had caught him: and he was kept bound with chains and in shackles; and he broke the bands and was driven by the shed into the wilderness.
30 And YAHUSHA asked him, saying, What is your name? And he said, Legion: because many shedim were entered into him.
31 And they asked Him that He would not command them to go out into the bottomless pit.
32 And there was there a herd of many swine feeding on the har: and they asked Him that He would allow them to attack them. And He allowed them.
33 Then went the shedim out of the man and attacked the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the lake and were choked.
34 When they that fed them saw what was done, they fled and went and told it in the city and in the country.
35 Then they went out to see what was done; and came to YAHUSHA and found the man, out of whom the shedim were expelled, sitting at the feet of YAHUSHA, clothed and in his right mind: and they were afraid.
36 They also which saw it told them by what means he that was possessed of the shedim was healed.
37 Then the whole multitude of the country of the Gadarenes all around asked Him to depart from them; for they were taken with great fear: and He went up into the ship and returned back again.
38 Now the man out of whom the shedim were departed asked Him if he might stay with Him: but YAHUSHA sent him away, saying,
39 Return to your own bayit and show what great things YHUH has done to you. And he went his way and published throughout the whole city what great things YAHUSHA had done to him.
40 And it came to pass, that, when YAHUSHA returned, the people gladly received Him: for they were all waiting for Him.
41 And, see, there came a man named Yair and he was a shamesh of the synagogue: and he fell down at YAHUSHA’s feet and asked Him to come into his bayit:
42 For he had one only daughter, about twelve years of age and she lay dying. But as He went the people thronged Him.
43 And a woman having an issue of dahm twelve years, who had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed by any,
44 Came behind Him and touched the tzitzit of His garment: and immediately her issue of dahm stopped.
45 And YAHUSHA said, Who touched Me? When all denied it, Kefa and they that were with Him said, Master, the multitudes throng You and press You and yet You ask, Who touched Me?
46 And YAHUSHA said, Somebody has touched Me: for I perceive that Power has gone out of Me.
47 And when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling and falling down before Him, she declared to Him before all the people the reason she had touched Him and how she was healed immediately.
48 And He said to her, Daughter, be of tov comfort: your emunah has made you whole; go in shalom.
49 While He yet spoke, there came one from the shamesh of the synagogue’s bayit, saying to him, Your daughter is dead; trouble not The Master.
50 But when YAHUSHA heard it, He answered him, saying, Fear not: believe only and she shall be made whole.
51 And when He came into the bayit, He allowed no man to go in, except Kefa and Yaakov and Yochanan and The Abba and the eema of the girl.
52 And all wept and mourned her: but He said, Weep not; she is not dead, but only sleeping.
53 And they laughed Him to scorn, knowing that she was dead.
54 And He put them all out and took her by the hand and called, saying, Young girl, arise.
55 And her ruach returned and she arose immediately: and He commanded them to give her something to eat.
56 And her parents were astonished: but He ordered them that they should tell no man what was done.
9 Then He called His twelve talmidim together and gave them Power and authority over all shedim and to cure diseases.
2 And He sent them to proclaim the malchut of YHUH and to heal the sick.
3 And He said to them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staffs, nor bags, neither lechem, neither money; neither have two coats apiece.
4 And whatever bayit you enter into, there abide and then depart.
5 And whoever will not receive you, when you go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a witness against them.
6 And they departed and went through the towns, proclaiming The Besorah and healing everywhere.
7 Now Herod the district ruler heard about all that was done by Him: and he was perplexed because that it was said by some, that Yochanan was risen from the dead;
8 And by some, that Eli-Yahu had appeared; and by others, that one of the old neviim had risen again.
9 And Herod said, Yochanan have I beheaded: but who is this, of whom I hear such things? And he desired to see Him.
10 And the shlichim, when they had returned, told Him all that they had done. And He took them and went aside privately into a desert place belonging to the city called Beth-Saida.
11 And the people, when they knew it, followed Him: and He received them and spoke to them of the malchut of YHUH and healed them that had need of healing.
12 And when the yom began to wane, then came the twelve and said to Him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into the towns and country all around and lodge and get food: for we are here in a desert place.
13 But He said to them, You give them to eat! And they said, We have only five loaves and two fishes; unless we go and buy food for all this people.
14 For there were about five thousand men. And He said to His talmidim, Make them sit down by fifties in a company!
15 And they did so and made them all sit down.
16 Then He took the five loaves and the two fishes and looking up to the shamayim, He said the bracha and broke them and gave to the talmidim to set before the multitude.
17 And they did eat and were all filled: and there was taken up from the fragments that remained to them twelve baskets.
18 And it came to pass, as He was alone making tefillot, His talmidim were with Him: and He asked them, saying, Who do the people say that I AM?
19 They answering said, Yochanan ha Matbeel; but some say, Eli-Yahu; and others say, that one of the old neviim has risen again.
20 He said to them, But who do you say that I AM? Kefa answering said, The Moshiach of YHUH.
21 And He strictly ordered them and commanded them to tell this to no man.
22 Saying, The Ben Ahdahm must suffer many things and be rejected by the zechanim and chief kohanim and Sophrim and be killed and be raised the third yom.
23 And He said to them all, If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his execution stake daily and follow Me.
24 For whoever will save his chayim shall lose it: but whoever will lose his chayim for My sake, the same shall save it.
25 For what is a man advantaged, if he gains the whole olam hazeh and loses himself, or is thrown away?
26 For whoever shall be ashamed of Me and of My Words, of him shall The Ben Ahdahm be ashamed, when He shall come with the tifereth of His Abba, accompanied by the kadosh heavenly malachim.
27 But I tell you the emet, there are some standing here, who shall not taste of death, until they see the malchut of YHUH.
28 And it came to pass about eight yamim after these sayings, He took Kefa and Yochanan and Yaakov and went up into a har to make tefillah.
29 And as He made tefillah, the appearance of His countenance was altered and His garment was white and dazzling.
30 And, see, there talked with Him two men, who were Moshe and Eli-Yahu:
31 Who appeared in tifereth and spoke of His death that He would accomplish at Yahrushalayim.
32 But Kefa and they that were with Him were heavy with sleep: and when they awoke, they saw His tifereth and the two men that stood with Him.
33 And it came to pass, as they departed from Him, Kefa said to YAHUSHA, Master, 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: not knowing what he said.
34 While he spoke, there came a cloud and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud.
35 And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is My Beloved Son: Hear Him.
36 And when the voice was past,Yahushua was found alone. And they kept it quiet and told no man in those yamim any of those things that they had seen.
37 And it came to pass, that on the next yom, when they had come down from the har, many people met Him.
38 And, see, a man of the company cried out, saying, Master, I beg You, look upon my son: for he is my only child.
39 And, see, a ruach seizes him and he suddenly cries out; and it convulses him with foaming and it hardly departs from him bruising him.
40 And I asked Your talmidim to expel it; and they could not.
41 And YAHUSHA answering said, O unbelieving and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you and put up with you? Bring your son here!
42 And as he was coming, the shed threw him down and tore at him. And YAHUSHA rebuked the shed and healed the child and delivered him again to his abba.
43 And they were all amazed at the mighty Power of YHUH. But while they all marveled every one at all the things that YAHUSHA did, He said to His talmidim,
44 Let these sayings sink down into your ears: for The Ben Ahdahm shall be delivered into the hands of men.
45 But they understood not this saying and it was hidden from them, that they perceived it not: and they feared to ask Him about that saying.
46 Then there arose a dispute among them, which of them should be greatest.
47 And YAHUSHA, perceiving the thoughts of their levavot, took a child and set him by His side,
48 And said to them, Whoever shall receive this child in My Name receives Me: and whoever shall receive Me receives Him that sent Me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great.
49 And Yochanan answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out shedim in Your Name; and we rebuked him because he is not with us as Your follower.
50 And YAHUSHA said to him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.
51 And it came to pass, when the time had come that He should be offered up, He prepared His face to go to Yahrushalayim,
52 And sent messengers before His face: and they went and entered into a village of the Shomronites, to make ready for Him.
53 And they did not receive Him because His face was directed as though He would go to Yahrushalayim.
54 And when His talmidim Yaakov and Yochanan saw this, they said, Master, will You that we command fire to come down from the shamayim and consume them, even as Eli-Yahu did?
55 But He turned and rebuked them and said, You know not what manner of ruach you are of!
56 For The Ben Ahdahm has not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.
57 And it came to pass, that, as they went in the derech, a certain man said to Him, Master, I will follow You wherever You go.
58 And YAHUSHA said to him, Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests; but The Ben Ahdahm has nowhere to lay His head.
59 And He said to another, Follow Me. But he said, Master, allow me first to go and bury my abba.
60 YAHUSHA said to him, Let the dead bury their dead: but you go and proclaim the malchut of YHUH.
61 And another also said, Master, I will follow You; but let me first entrust my home to someone and then come.
62 And YAHUSHA said to him, No man, having put his hand to the plough handle and looking back, is fit for the malchut of YHUH.
10 After these things He appointed seventy others, and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place, where He Himself would come.
2 Therefore He said to them, The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few: make tefillah therefore to The Master of the harvest, that He would send forth laborers into His harvest.
3 Go your derachot: see, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.
4 Carry neither purse, nor bag, nor sandals: and join with no man along the derech.
5 And into whatever bayit you enter, first say, Shalom to this bayit.
6 And if the son of shalom is there, your shalom shall rest upon it: if not, it shall return to you again.
7 And in the same bayit remain, eating and drinking such things as they give you: for the laborer is worthy of his wages. Go not from bayit to bayit.
8 And into whatever city you enter and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you:
9 And heal the sick that are there and say to them, The malchut of YHUH has come near to you.
10 But into whatever city you enter and they receive you not, go out into the streets and say,
11 Even the very dust of your city, which cleaves on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be you sure of this, that the malchut of YHUH is offered to you.
12 But I say to you, That it shall be more tolerable in that yom for Sedom, than for that city.
13 Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Beth-Saida! For if the mighty works had been done in Tsor and Tsidon, which have been done in you, they would have a great while ago made teshuvah, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.
14 But it shall be more tolerable for Tsor and Tsidon at the Yom HaDin, than for you.
15 And you, Kfar Nachum that is exalted to the shamayim shall be thrown down to Sheol.
16 He that hears you hears Me; and he that despises you despises Me; and he that despises Me despises Him that sent Me.
17 And the seventy returned again with simcha, saying, Master, even the shedim were subject to us through Your Name.
18 And He said to them, I beheld s.a.tan as lightning fall from the shamayim.
19 See, I give to you Power to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
20 But rejoice not, that the shedim are subject to you; but rather rejoice because your names are written in the shamayim.
21 In that hour YAHUSHA rejoiced in The Ruach HaKodesh and said, Todah raba, O Abba, Sovereign of the shamayim and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes: even so, Abba; for so it seemed tov in Your sight.
22 All things are delivered to Me by My Abba: and no man knows who The Son is, but The Abba; and who The Abba is, but The Son and he to whom The Son wishes to reveal Him.
23 And He turned to His talmidim and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that you see:
24 For I tell you, that many neviim and melechim have desired to see those things which you see and have not seen them; and to hear those things which you hear and have not heard them.
25 And, see, a certain Torah teacher stood up and tested Him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal chayim?
26 He said to him, What is written in the Torah? How do you read it?
27 And he answering said, You shall love The Master YHUH your Ahloha with all your lev and with all your being and with all your strength and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.
28 And He said to him, You have answered right: these do and you shall live.
29 But he, willing to justify himself, said to YAHUSHA: And who is my neighbor?
30 And YAHUSHA answering said, A certain man went down from Yahrushalayim to Yericho and fell among thieves, who stripped him of his garment and wounded him and departed, leaving him half dead.
31 And by chance there came down a certain kohen that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
32 And likewise a Lewi, when he was at the place, came and looked at him and passed by on the other side.
33 But a certain Shomronite, as he journeyed, came to where he was: and when he saw him, he had rachamim on him,
34 And went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine and set him on his own beast and brought him to an inn and took care of him.
35 And in the boker when he departed, he took out two pieces of silver and gave them to the innkeeper and said to him, Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I come again, I will repay you.
36 Which of these three, do you think, was a neighbor to him that fell victim among the thieves?
37 And he said, He that showed rachamim to him. Then said YAHUSHA to him, Go and do likewise!
38 Now it came to pass, as they went, that He entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received Him into her bayit.
39 And she had a sister called Miryam, who also sat at YAHUSHA’s feet and heard His Word.
40 But Martha was occupied with much serving and came to Him and said, Master, don’t You care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Speak to her therefore that she help me.
41 And YAHUSHA answered and said to her, Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things:
42 But one thing is required: and Miryam has chosen that tov part, which shall not be taken away from her.
11 And it came to pass, that, as He was making tefillot in a certain place, when He ceased, one of His talmidim said to Him, Master, teach us to make tefillah, as Yochanan also taught His talmidim.
2 And He said to them, When you make tefillah, say, Our Abba who is in the shamayim, kadosh be Your Name. Your malchut come. Your ratzon be done, as in the shamayim, also in the earth.
3 Give us yom by yom our daily lechem.
4 And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into trial; but deliver us from the wicked one and error.
5 And He said to them, Which of you shall have a chaver and shall go to him at midnight and say to him, Chaver, lend me three loaves;
6 For a chaver of mine in his journey has come to me and I have nothing to set before him?
7 And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the door is now shut and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give you.
8 I say to you, If he will not rise and give him because he is his chaver, yet because of his persistence he will rise and give him as much as he needs.
9 And I say to you, Ask and it shall be given you; seek and you shall find; knock and it shall be opened to you.
10 For every one that asks receives; and he that seeks finds; and to him that knocks it shall be opened.
11 If a son shall ask for lechem from any of you that is an abba, will he give him a stone? Or, if he asks for a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?
12 Or, if he shall ask for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?
13 If you then, being evil, know how to give tov gifts to your children: how much more shall your Heavenly Abba give The Ruach Hakodesh to them that ask Him?
14 And He was casting out a shed and it was dumb. And it came to pass, when the shed was gone out, the dumb spoke; and the people wondered.
15 But some of them said, He casts out shedim through Ba’al-Zevuv the chief of the shedim.
16 And others, testing Him, sought from Him an ot from the shamayim.
17 But He, knowing their thoughts, said to them, Every malchut divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a bayit divided against a bayit falls.
18 If s.a.tan also were divided against himself, how shall his malchut stand? Because you say that I expel shedim through Ba’al-Zevuv.
19 And if I by Ba’al-Zevuv expel shedim, by whom do your sons expel them? Therefore shall they be your shophtim.
20 But if I with the finger of YHUH expel shedim, no doubt the malchut of YHUH is offered to you.
21 When a strong-armed man keeps his courtyard, his goods are safe:
22 But when a stronger one than he shall come upon him and overcome him, he takes from him all his armor in which he trusted and divides his spoils.
23 He that is not with Me is against Me: and he that gathers not with Me scatters.
24 When the unclean ruach is gone out of a man, he walks through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he said, I will return to my bayit where I came from.
25 And when he is coming, he finds it swept and garnished.
26 Then he goes and takes with him seven other shedim more wicked than himself; and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.
27 And it came to pass, as He spoke these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice and said to Him, Blessed is the womb that bore You and the breasts which You have sucked.
28 But He said, Yes, rather, favored are they that hear The Word of YHUH and guard it.
29 And when the people were gathered thick together, He began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek an ot; and there shall no ot be given it, but the ot of Yonah the navi.
30 For as Yonah was an ot to the Ninevites, so also shall The Ben Ahdahm be to this generation.
31 The queen of the south shall rise up in the Yom HaDin with the men of this generation and condemn them: for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the chochmah of Shlomo; and, see, a greater than Shlomo is here.
32 The men of Ninveh shall rise up in the Yom HaDin with this generation and shall condemn it: for they repented at the proclaiming of Yonah; and, see, a greater than Yonah is here.
33 No man, when he has lit a candle, puts it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a menorah, that those who come in may see the ohr.
34 The ohr of the gooff is the eye: therefore when your eye is single, your whole gooff also is full of ohr; but when your eye is sick, your gooff also is full of darkness.
35 Take heed therefore that the ohr that is in you be not darkness.
36 If your whole gooff therefore be full of ohr, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of ohr, as when the bright shining of a candle does give you ohr.
37 And as He spoke, a certain Prush asked Him to dine with him: and He went in and sat down to eat.
38 And when the Prush saw it, he marveled that He had not first washed before dinner.
39 And YAHUSHA said to him, Now do you Prushim make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of greed and wickedness.
40 You fools, did not He that made that which is on the outside make that which is within also?
41 But rather give kindness of such things as you have within; and, see, all things are clean to you.
42 But woe to you, Prushim! For you give maaser mint and rue and all manner of herbs and pass over mishpatim and the ahava of YHUH: these you should have done and not to leave the others undone.
43 Woe to you, Prushim! For you love the uppermost seats in the synagogues and greetings in the markets.
44 Woe to you, Sophrim and Prushim, hypocrites! For you are as graves that are not seen and the men that walk over them are not aware of them.
45 Then answered one of the Torah teachers and said to Him, Master, with this saying You insulted us also.
46 And He said, Woe to you also, you Torah teachers! For you load men with burdens hard to bear and you yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers.
47 Woe to you! For you build the tombs of the neviim and your ahvot killed them.
48 Truly you bear witness that you allow the deeds of your ahvot: for they indeed killed them and you built their tombs.
49 Therefore also said the Chochmah of Ahloha, I will send them neviim and shlichim and some of them they shall slay and persecute:
50 That the dahm of all the neviim that was shed from the foundation of the olam hazeh may be required of this nation;
51 From the dahm of Hevel to the dahm of Zacharyah, who perished between the altar and the Beit HaMikdash: truly I say to you, It shall be required of this nation.
52 Woe to you, Torah teachers! For you have taken away the key of da’at: you entered not in yourselves and them that were entering in you hindered.
53 And as He said these things to them, the Sophrim and the Prushim began to oppose Him vehemently and to provoke Him to speak on many subjects:
54 Lying in wait for Him and seeking to catch something out of His mouth, that they might accuse Him.
12 In the meantime, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, so that they trampled one another, He began to say to His talmidim first, Beware of the chametz of the Prushim, which is hypocrisy.
2 For there is nothing covered that shall not be revealed; neither hidden, that shall not be known.
3 Therefore whatever you have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the ohr; and that which you have spoken in the ear in inner rooms shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.
4 And I say to you My chaverim, Be not afraid of them that kill the gooff and after that have no more that they can do.
5 But I will show you whom you shall fear: Fear Him, who after He has killed has Power to throw into Gei-Hinnom; yes, I say to you, Fear Him.
6 Are not five sparrows sold for two copper coins and not one of them is forgotten before YHUH ?
7 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: you are of more value than many sparrows.
8 Also I say to you, Whoever shall confess Me before men, Him shall The Ben Ahdahm also confess before the heavenly malachim of YHUH:
9 But he that denies Me before men shall be denied before the heavenly malachim of YHUH.
10 And whoever shall speak a word against The Ben Ahdahm, it shall be forgiven him: but to him that blasphemes against The Ruach Hakodesh it shall not be forgiven.
11 And when they bring you to the synagogues and to rulers and authorities, take no thought how, or what thing you shall answer, or what you shall say:
12 For The Ruach Hakodesh shall teach you in the same hour what you ought to say.
13 And one of the company said to Him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me.
14 And He said to him, Man, who made Me a shophet, or a divider over you?
15 And He said to them, Take heed and beware of greed: for a man’s chayim consists not in the abundance of the things that he possesses.
16 And He spoke a parable to them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:
17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do because I have no room where to store my fruits?
18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns and build larger ones; and there will I store all my fruits and my goods.
19 And I will say to my being, Being, you have much goods laid up for many years; take it easy, eat, drink and celebrate.
20 But YHUH said to him, You fool, this lyla your being shall be required from you: then whose shall those things be, which you have prepared?
21 So is he that lays up treasure for himself and is not rich toward YHUH.
22 And He said to His talmidim, Therefore I say to you, Take no thought for your chayim, what you shall eat; neither for the gooff, what you shall put on.
23 Your chayim is more than food and your gooff is more than a garment.
24 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouses nor barns; and YHUH feeds them: how much more are you better than the fowls?
25 And which of you by worrying can add to his height one cubit?
26 If you then are not able to do the thing that is least, why worry about the rest?
27 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say to you, That Shlomo in all his tifereth was not dressed like one of these.
28 If then YHUH so clothe the grass, which today is in the field and tomorrow is thrown into the fireplace; how much more will He clothe you, O you of little trust?
29 And seek not what you shall eat, or what you shall drink, neither keep worrying.
30 For all these things do the goyim of the olam hazeh seek after: and your Abba knows that you have need of these things.
31 But rather seek the malchut of YHUH; and all these things shall be added to you.
32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Abba’s tov pleasure to give you the malchut.
33 Sell what you have and give in kindness; provide yourselves bags which grow not old, a treasure in the shamayim that fails not, where no thief approaches, neither moth corrupts.
34 For where your treasure is, there will your lev be also.
35 Let your loins be bound and your lights burning;
36 And you yourselves like men that wait for their Master, when He will return from the wedding; that when He is coming and knocks, they may open to Him immediately.
37 Blessed are those avadim, whom The Master when He is coming shall find watching: truly I say to you, That He shall gird himself and make them to sit down to eat and will go around and serve them.
38 And if He shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch and find them watching, favored are those avadim.
39 And this know, that if the owner of the bayit had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not have allowed his bayit to be broken into.
40 Be you therefore ready also: for The Ben Ahdahm is coming at an hour when you think not.
41 Then Kefa said to Him, Master, are You speaking this parable to us, or even to everyone?
42 And YAHUSHA said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom His Master shall make ruler over His household, to give them their portion of food in due season?
43 Blessed is that eved, whom His Master when He comes shall find so doing.
44 Of an emet I say to you, That He will make him ruler over all that He has.
45 But if that eved says in his lev, My Master delays His coming; and shall begin to beat the male avadim and female avadim and to eat and drink and to be drunk;
46 The Master of that eved will come in a yom when he looks not for Him and at an hour when he is not aware and will cut him in two and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.
47 And that eved, who knew His Master’s will and did not prepare himself, neither did according to His will, shall be beaten with many stripes.
48 But he that knew not and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For to whom much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the most.
49 I AM come to send fire on the earth; and how I wish that it were already lit?
50 But I have a mikvah to be immersed with; and how am I greatly afflicted until it be accomplished!
51 Do you think that I have come to give shalom to the earth? I tell you, No; but rather division:
52 For from now on there shall be five in one bayit divided, three against two and two against three.
53 The Abba shall be divided against the son and the son against the abba; the eema against the daughter and the daughter against the eema; the eema-in-law against her daughter-in-law and the daughter-in-law against her eema-in-law.
54 And He said also to the people, When you see a cloud rise out of the west, immediately you say, There is coming a shower; and so it is.
55 And when you see the south wind blow, you say, There will be heat; and it comes to pass.
56 You hypocrites, you can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that you do not discern this time?
57 Yes and why even yourselves you judge not what is right?
58 When you go with your adversary to the ruler, as you are in the derech, give diligence that you may be delivered from him; lest he drag you to the shophet and the shophet deliver you to the officer and the officer cast you into prison.
59 I tell you, you shall not depart from there, until you have paid the very last coin.
13 There were present at that season some that told Him of the Galilaeans, whose dahm Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices.
2 And YAHUSHA answering said to them, Do you think that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans because they suffered such things?
3 I tell you, No: but, except you make teshuvah, you shall all likewise perish
4 Or, those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them, do you think that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Yahrushalayim?
5 I tell you, No: but, except you make teshuvah, you shall all likewise perish.
6 He spoke also this parable; A certain man had a fig eytz planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit on it and found none.
7 Then he said to the dresser of his vineyard, See, these three years I came seeking fruit on this fig eytz and found none: cut it down; why should the ground be wasted?
8 And he answering said to him, Master, leave it alone this year again, until I shall dig around it and cast manure on it:
9 And if it bears fruit, well: and if not, then after that You shall cut it down.
10 And He was teaching in one of the synagogues on The Shabbat.
11 And, see, there was a woman who had a ruach of infirmity eighteen years and was bent over and could in no way lift herself up.
12 And when YAHUSHA saw her, He called her to Him and said to her, Woman, you are loosed from your infirmity.
13 And He laid His Hands on her: and immediately she was made straight and esteemed YHUH.
14 And the rabbi of the synagogue answered with indignation because YAHUSHA had healed on The Shabbat and said to the people, There are six yamim in which men ought to work: in them therefore come and be healed and not on The Shabbat.
15 YAHUSHA then answered him and said, You hypocrite, does not each one of you on The Shabbat loose his ox, or his donkey from the stall and lead him away to watering?
16 And should not this woman, being a daughter of Avraham, whom s.a.tan has bound, see, these eighteen years, be set free from this bond on The Shabbat?
17 And when He had said these things, all His adversaries were ashamed: and the entire nation had gilah for all the wonderful things that were done by Him.
18 Then He said, To what is the malchut of YHUH like? And to what shall I compare it?
19 It is like a grain of mustard zera, which a man took and threw into his garden; and it grew and grew into a great eytz; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.
20 And again He said, To what shall I liken the malchut of
21 It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, until the whole was leavened.
22 And He went through the cities and villages, teaching and journeying toward Yahrushalayim.
23 Then someone said to Him, Master, are there few that will be saved? And He said to them,
24 Strive to enter in at the narrow gate: for many, I say to you, Will seek to enter in and shall not be able.
25 Once The Master of the bayit is risen up and has shut the door and you begin to stand outside and to knock on the door, saying, Master, Master, open to us; and He shall answer and say to you, I know you not where you are from:
26 Then shall you begin to say, We ate and drank in your presence and You have taught in our streets.
27 But He shall say, I tell you, I know you not where you are from; depart from Me, all you workers of Torah-less-ness.
28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you shall see Avraham and Yitzchak and Yaakov and all the neviim, in the malchut of YHUH and you yourselves thrown out.
29 And they shall come from the east and from the west and from the north and from the south and shall sit down in the malchut of YHUH.
30 And, see, there are last which shall be first and there are first which shall be last.
31 The same yom there came certain of the Prushim, saying to Him, Get going and depart from here: for Herod will kill You.
32 And He said to them, You go and tell that fox, See, I expel shedim and I do cures today and tomorrow and on the third yom I shall be finished.
33 Nevertheless I must work today and tomorrow and the yom following: for it cannot be that The Navi perishes outside of Yahrushalayim.
34 O Yahrushalayim, Yahrushalayim, which kills the neviim and stones them that are sent to you; how often would I have gathered your children together, as a hen does gather her chicks under her wings and you O’ Yisrael did not want it!
35 See, Beit Yisrael is left to you desolate: and truly I say to you, You shall not see Me, until the time comes when you shall say, baruch haba beshem HaAdon YHUH.
14 And it came to pass, as He went into the bayit of one of the chief Prushim to eat lechem on The Shabbat, that they watched Him.
2 And, see, there was a certain man before Him who had the dropsy.
3 And YAHUSHA answering spoke to the Torah teachers and Prushim, saying, Is it permitted in Torah to heal on The Shabbat Yom?
4 And they held their silence. And He took him and healed him and let him go;
5 And answered them, saying, Which of you shall have a donkey, or an ox fall into a pit and will not immediately pull him out on The Shabbat Yom?
6 And they could not answer Him about these things.
7 And He put forth a parable to those who were invited, when He noted how they chose out the best places at moadeem; saying to them,
8 When you are invited by any man to a wedding, do not sit down in the best place; lest he invite a more honorable man than you;
9 And he that invited both of you comes and says to you, Give this man the best place; and you begin with shame to take the last place.
10 But when you are invited, go and sit down in the last place; so that when he that invited you comes, he may say to you, Chaver, go up higher: then shall you have kavod in the presence of those that recline at the moed with you.
11 For whoever exalts himself shall be humbled; and he that humbles himself shall be exalted.
12 Then He said also to the one that invited Him, When you make a dinner, or a supper, call not your chaverim, nor your Yisraelite brothers, neither your relatives, nor your rich neighbors; lest they also invite you again and a repayment be made to you.
13 But when you observe a moed, call the poor, the maimed, the lame and the blind:
14 And you shall be favored; for they cannot repay you: for you shall be repaid at the resurrection of the just.
15 And when one of them that was reclining with Him, heard these things, he said to Him, Blessed is he that shall eat lechem in the malchut of YHUH.
16 Then He said to him, A certain man made a great supper and invited many:
17 And sent his eved at supper time to say to them that were invited, Come; for all things are now ready.
18 And they all began making excuses. The first said to him, I have bought a piece of property and I must go and see it: I ask you have me excused.
19 And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen and I go to try them out: I ask you have me excused.
20 And another said, I have married an isha and therefore I cannot come.
21 So that eved came and showed His Master these things. Then The Master of the bayit being angry said to his eved, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city and bring in here the poor and the crippled, the lame and the blind.
22 And the eved said, Master, it is done as you have commanded and yet there is still room.
23 And The Master said to the eved, Go out into the highways and hedges and compel them to come in, that My bayit may be filled.
24 For I say to you, That none of those men who were invited shall taste of My supper.
25 And there went great multitudes with Him: and He turned and said to them,
26 If any man comes to Me and does not put aside his abba and eema and isha and children and brothers and sisters, yes and his own chayim also, he cannot be My talmid.
27 And whoever does not bear his execution stake and come after Me, cannot be My talmid.
28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, sits not down first and counts the cost, whether he has sufficient supplies to finish it?
29 Otherwise, after he has laid the foundation and is not able to finish it, all that see it begin to mock him,
30 Saying, This man began to build and was not able to finish.
31 Or, what melech, going to make war against another melech, sits not down first and consults whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him that is coming against him with twenty thousand?
32 If not, while the other is yet a great way off, he sends a delegation and desires conditions of shalom.
33 So likewise, any of you that forsakes not all that he has, he cannot be My talmid.
34 Salt is tov: but if the salt becomes tasteless, with what shall it be seasoned?
35 It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men cast it out. He that has ears to hear let him hear.
15 Then drew near to Him all the tax collectors and sinners to hear Him.
2 And the Prushim and Sophrim grumbled, saying, This Man receives sinners and eats with them.
3 And He spoke this parable to them, saying,
4 What man among you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety nine in the wilderness and goes after that which is lost, until he finds it?
5 And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing.
6 And when he is coming home, he calls together his chaverim and neighbors, saying to them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep that was lost.
7 I say to you, That likewise simcha shall be in the shamayim over one sinner that repents, more than over ninety-nine tzadikim, who need no teshuvah.
8 Or, what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she loses one piece, does not light a candle and sweep the bayit, and seek diligently until she finds it?
9 And when she has found it, she calls her chaverim and her neighbors together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece that I had lost.
10 Likewise, I say to you, There is simcha in the presence of the heavenly malachim of YHUH over one sinner that repents.
11 And He said, A certain man had two sons:
12 And the younger of them said to his abba, Abba, give me the portion of goods that belongs to me. And he divided to them his living.
13 And not many yamim after the younger son gathered all things together and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.
14 And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.
15 And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.
16 And he was longing to fill his belly with the pods that the swine did eat: and no man gave to him.
17 And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired avadim of my abba’s have lechem enough and to spare and I perish with hunger!
18 I will arise and go to my abba and will say to him, Abba, I have sinned against the shamayim and before you,
19 And am no more worthy to be called your son: make me as one of your hired avadim.
20 And he arose and came to his abba. But when he was yet a great way off, his abba saw him and had rachamim and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him.
21 And the son said to him, Abba, I have sinned against the shamayim and in your sight and am no more worthy to be called your son.
22 But The Abba said to his avadim, Bring forth the best robe and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand and shoes on his feet:
23 And bring here the fatted calf and kill it; and let us eat and celebrate:
24 For this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found. And they began to celebrate.
25 Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew near to the bayit, he heard music and dancing.
26 And he called one of the avadim and asked what these things meant.
27 And he said to him, Your brother has come; and your abba has killed the fatted calf because he has received him safe and sound.
28 And he was angry and would not go in: therefore his abba came out and pleaded with him.
29 And he answering said to his abba, See, these many years do I serve you, neither transgressed I at any time your commandment: and yet you never gave me a goat, that I might celebrate with my chaverim:
30 But as soon as this your son has come, who has devoured your living with harlots, you have killed for him the fatted calf.
31 And he said to him, Son, you are always with me and all that I have is yours.
32 It was right that we should celebrate and be in simcha: for this your brother was dead and is alive again; and was lost and is found.
16 And He said also to His talmidim, There was a certain rich man, who had a steward; and the same steward was accused of wasting his wealth.
2 And he called him and said to him, How is it that I hear this about you? Give an account of your stewardship; for you may no longer be steward.
3 Then the steward said to himself, What shall I do? For my master takes away from me the stewardship: I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed.
4 I know what to do, so that, when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.
5 So he called every one of his master’s debtors to him and said to the first, How much do you owe my master?
6 And he said, A hundred measures of oil. And he said to him, Take your bill and sit down quickly and write fifty.
7 Then said he to another: And how much do you owe? And he said, A hundred measures of wheat. And he said to him, Take your bill and write eighty.
8 And the master commended the unjust steward because he had done wisely: for the children of the olam hazeh are in their generation wiser than the children of ohr.
9 And I say to you, Make for yourselves chaverim of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when you fail, they may receive you into everlasting dwellings.
10 He that is faithful in that which is least, is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least, is unjust also in much.
11 If therefore you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the emet riches?
12 And if you have not been faithful in that which is another man’s, who shall give you that which is your own?
13 No eved can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one and love the other; or else he will hold to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve YHUH and wealth.
14 And the Prushim also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they ridiculed Him.
15 And He said to them, You are they which justify yourselves before men; but YHUH knows your levavot: for that which is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of YHUH.
16 The Torah and the neviim were concerning Yochanan: since that time the malchut of YHUH is proclaimed and every man presses into it.
17 And it is easier for the shamayim and earth to pass, than one letter of the Torah to fail.
18 Whoever puts away his isha and marries another, commits adultery: and whoever marries her that is undivorced from her husband commits adultery.
19 There was a certain rich man, who was clothed in purple and fine linen and fared very well every yom:
20 And there was a certain beggar named El-Azar, who was laid at his gate, full of sores,
21 Desiring to be fed with the crumbs that fell from the rich man’s shulchan: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died and was carried by the heavenly malachim into Avraham’s Bosom: the rich man also died and was buried;
23 And in Sheol he lifts up his eyes, being in torment and saw Avraham far off and El-Azar in his bosom.
24 And he cried and said, Abba Avraham, have rachamim on me and send El-Azar, that he may dip the tip of his finger in mayim and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
25 But Avraham said, Son, remember that you in your lifetime received your tov things and likewise El-Azar evil things: but now he is comforted and you are tormented.
26 And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that those who would pass from here to you cannot; neither can they pass to us that would come from there.
27 Then he said, I ask you therefore, abba Avraham that you would send him to my abba’s bayit:
28 For I have five brothers; that he may testify to them, lest they also come into this place of torment.
29 Avraham said to him, They have Moshe Rabainu and the neviim; let them hear them.
30 And he said, No, Abba Avraham: but if one went to them from the dead, they will make teshuvah.
31 And he said to him, If they listen not to Moshe Rabainu and the neviim, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
17 Then said He to the talmidim, It is impossible that offences will not come: but woe to him, through whom they come!
2 It were better for him that a millstone were hung around his neck and he was thrown into the sea rather, than that he should offend one of these little ones.
3 Take heed to yourselves: If your brother trespasses against you, rebuke him; and if he makes teshuvah, forgive him.
4 And if he trespasses against you seven times in a yom and seven times in a yom turns again to you, saying, I make teshuvah; you shall forgive him.
5 And the shlichim said to YAHUSHA, Increase our emunah.
6 And YAHUSHA said, If you had emunah as a grain of mustard zera, you might say to this mulberry eytz, Be plucked up by the root and be planted in the sea; and it should obey you.
7 But which of you, having an eved plowing, or feeding cattle, will say to him immediately, when he is come from the field, Go and sit down to eat?
8 But would you not rather say to him, Make ready for my supper and dress yourself and serve me, until I have eaten and drunk; and afterward you shall eat and drink?
9 Does he thank that eved because he did the things that were commanded him? I think not.
10 So likewise you, when you shall have done all those things that are commanded to you, say, We are unworthy avadim: we have done only that which was our duty to do.
11 And it came to pass, as He went to Yahrushalayim that He passed through the midst of Shomron and Galil.
12 And as He entered into a certain village, there He met ten men that were lepers, who stood far off:
13 And they lifted up their voices and said,Yahushua, Master, have rachamim on us.
14 And when He saw them, He said to them, Go show yourselves to the kohanim! And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.
15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back and with a loud voice esteemed YHUH,
16 And fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him hodu: and he was a Shomronite.
17 And YAHUSHA answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine who separated?
18 There are not found any that returned to give tifereth to YHUH, except this stranger.
19 And He said to him, Arise, go your way: your emunah has made you whole.
20 And the Prushim demanded to know, when the malchut of YHUH should come, He answered them and said, The malchut of YHUH is not coming with observation:
21 Neither shall they say, See here! Or, See there! For, see, the malchut of YHUH is within you.
22 And He said to the talmidim, The yamim will come, when you shall desire to see one of the yamim of The Ben Ahdahm and you shall not see it.
23 And they shall say to you, See here; or See there: go not after them, nor follow them.
24 For as the lightning, that flashes out from one part under the shamayim and shines to the other part under the shamayim; so shall also The Ben Ahdahm be in His yom.
25 But first He must suffer many things and be rejectedby this generation.
26 And as it was in the yamim of Noach, so shall it be also in the yamim of The Ben Ahdahm.
27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the yom that Noach entered into the ark and the flood came and destroyed them all.
28 Likewise also as it was in the yamim of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built;
29 But the same yom that Lot went out of Sedom it rained fire and brimstone from The Master YHUH from the shamayim and destroyed them all.
30 Even so shall it be in the yom when The Ben Ahdahm is revealed.
31 In that yom, he who shall be upon the housetop, with his belongings in the bayit, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.
32 Remember Lot’s isha!
33 Whoever shall seek to save his chayim shall lose it; and whoever shall lose his chayim shall preserve it.
34 I tell you, in that lyla there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken and the other shall be left.
35 Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken and the other left.
36 Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken and the other left.
37 And they responded and said to Him, Where, Master? And He said to them, Wherever the gooff is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
18 And He spoke a parable to them to this end, that men ought always to make tefillah and not to faint;
2 Saying, There was in a city a shophet, who feared not YHUH, neither regarded man:
3 And there was a widow in that city; and she came to him, saying, Do right to me regarding my adversary.
4 And he would not for a while: but afterward he said to himself, Though I fear not Ahloha, nor regard man;
5 Yet because this widow troubles me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she wears me out.
6 And YAHUSHA said, Hear what the unjust shophet said.
7 And shall not YHUH do tov to His own elect, who cry yom and lyla to Him, as He has patience with them?
8 I tell you that He will do tov to them speedily. Nevertheless when The Ben Ahdahm comes, shall He find emunah in the earth?
9 And He spoke this parable to certain people who trusted in themselves that they were tzadik and despised others:
10 Two men went up into the Beit HaMikdash to make tefillah; the one a Prush and the other a tax collector.
11 The Prush stood and made tefillah within himself, Ahloha, I thank You, that I am not as other men are, extortionists, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector.
12 I fast two meals on The Shabbat; I give ma’aser of all that I possess.
13 And the tax collector, standing far off, would not lift up so much as his eyes to the shamayim, but smote his breast, saying, Ahloha be merciful to me a sinner.
14 I tell you, this man went down to his bayit justified rather than the other: for every one that exalts himself shall be humbled; and he that humbles himself shall be exalted.
15 And they brought to Him also infants, that He would touch them: but when His talmidim saw it, they rebuked them.
16 But YAHUSHA called them to Him and said, Allow the little children to come to Me and forbid them not: for of such is the malchut of YHUH.
17 Truly I say to you, Whoever shall not receive the malchut of YHUH as a little child shall in no way enter there.
18 And a certain ruler asked Him, saying, Tov Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal chayim?
19 And YAHUSHA said to him, Why do you call Me tov? No one is tov, except One, that is,YHUH.
20 You know the mitzvoth, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honor your abba and your eema.
21 And he said, All these have I kept from my youth up.
22 Now when YAHUSHA heard these things, He said to him, Yet you lack one thing: sell all that you have and distribute to the poor and you shall have treasure in the shamayim: and come, follow Me.
23 And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very rich.
24 And when YAHUSHA saw that he was very sorrowful, He said, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the malchut of YHUH.
25 For it is easier for a large Rope to go through a needle’s eye, than for a rich man to enter into the malchut of YHUH.
26 And they that heard it said, Who then can be saved?
27 And He said, The things, which are impossible with men, are possible with YHUH.
28 Then Kefa said, Look, we have left all and followed You.
29 And He said to them, Truly I say to you, There is no man that has left bayit, or parents, or brothers, or isha, or children, for the malchut of YHUH’s sake,
30 Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time and in the olam haba chayim everlasting.
31 Then He took aside the twelve and said to them, See, we go up to Yahrushalayim and all things that are written by the neviim concerning The Ben Ahdahm shall be accomplished.
32 For He shall be delivered to the goyim and shall be mocked and insulted and spit on:
33 And they shall scourge and curse Him and put Him to death: and the third yom He shall rise again.
34 And they understood none of these things: and this saying was hidden from them, neither knew they the things that were spoken.
35 And it came to pass, that as He was coming near to Yericho, a certain blind man sat by the wayside begging:
36 And hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what it meant.
37 And they told him, that YAHUSHA of Natzeret passes by.
38 And he cried, saying,Yahushua, Ben Dawid, have rachamim on me.
39 And those who went before rebuked him, that he should hold his shalom: but he cried much more, You Ben Dawid, have rachamim on me.
40 And YAHUSHA stood and commanded him to be brought to Him: and when he had come near, He asked him,
41 Saying, What will you that I shall do for you? And he said, Master, that I may receive my sight.
42 And YAHUSHA said to him, Receive your sight: your emunah has saved you.
43 And immediately he received his sight and followed Him, esteeming YHUH: and all the people, when they saw it, gave hodu to Ahloha.
19 And YAHUSHA entered and passed through Yericho.
2 And, see, there was a man named Zakkai, who was the chief among the tax collectors and he was rich.
3 And he sought to see YAHUSHA who He was; and could not due to the pressing crowds because he was short in height.
4 And he ran ahead and climbed up into a leafless eytz to see Him: for He was to pass that derech.
5 And when YAHUSHA came to the place, He looked up and saw him and said to him, Zakkai, hurry and come down; for today I must abide at your bayit.
6 And he hurried and came down and received Him with simcha.
7 And when they saw it, they all grumbled, saying, That He had gone to be a guest with a man that is a sinner.
8 And Zakkai stood and said to YAHUSHA; See, Master, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore all things to him fourfold.
9 And YAHUSHA said to him, This yom is salvation come to this bayit because he also is a b’nai Avraham.
10 For The Ben Ahdahm has come to seek and to save that which was lost.
11 And as they heard these things, He added another parable because He was near to Yahrushalayim and because they thought that the malchut of YHUH should immediately appear.
12 He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a malchut and to return.
13 And he called his ten avadim, and delivered to them ten pounds and said to them, Occupy until I come.
14 But his citizens hated him and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us.
15 And it came to pass, that when he returned, having received the malchut, then he commanded these avadim to be called to him, to whom he had given the money that he might know how much every man had gained by trading.
16 Then came the first, saying, Master, Your pound has gained ten pounds.
17 And he said to him, Well done, you tov eved: because you have been faithful in very little, take authority over ten talents.
18 And the second came, saying, Master, Your pound has gained five pounds.
19 And He said likewise to him, Take authority also over five talents.
20 And another came, saying, Master, see, here is Your pound, which I have kept laid up in a purse:
21 For I feared you because you are a harsh man: you take up that which you laid not down and reap that which you did not sow.
22 And he said to him, Out of your own mouth will I judge you, you wicked eved. You supposedly knew that I was a harsh man, taking up what I laid not down and reaping what I did not sow:
23 Then why didn’t you put my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have collected my own with interest?
24 And he said to them that stood by, Take from him the pound and give it to him that has ten pounds.
25 And they said to Him, Master, he has ten pounds.
26 For I say to you, That to every one who has shall be given; and from him that has not, even that which he has shall be taken away from him.
27 But these enemies, who did not desire that I should reign over them, bring here and slay them before Me!
28 And when He had spoken this, He went ahead, ascending up to Yahrushalayim.
29 And it came to pass, when He was come near to Beth Phagi and Beth Anya, at the har called the Har of Olives, He sent two of His talmidim,
30 Saying, Go into the village opposite you; in which as you enter you shall find a colt tied, on which no man has sat: loose him and bring him here.
31 And if any man asks you, Why do you loose him? This shall you say to him, Because The Master has need of him.
32 And they that were sent went their way and found it even as He had said to them.
33 And as they were loosing the colt, the owners of it said to them, Why do you loose the colt?
34 And they said, The Master has need of him.
35 And they brought him to YAHUSHA: and they threw their garments upon the colt and they set YAHUSHA on it.
36 And as He went, they spread their clothes in the derech.
37 And when He had come near, even now at the descent of the Har of Olives, the whole multitude of talmidim began to have gilah and give tehilla to YHUH with a loud voice for all the mighty mitzvoth that they had seen;
38 Saying, Blessed be The Melech that is coming in the Name of The Master YHUH: shalom in the shamayim and tifereth in the highest.
39 And some of the Prushim from among the multitude said to Him, Master, rebuke Your talmidim.
40 And He answered and said to them, I tell you that, if these should hold their shalom, the stones would immediately cry out.
41 And when He came near, He beheld the city and wept over it,
42 Saying, If you only knew, even in this your yom, the things that belong to your shalom! But now they are hidden from your eyes.
43 For the yamim shall come upon you, that your enemies shall cast a trench around you and surround you and press you in on every side,
44 And shall lay you even with the ground and your children within you; and they shall not leave in you one stone upon another; because you knew not the time of your visitation.
45 And He went into the Beit HaMikdash and began to cast out them that sold there and them that bought;
46 Saying to them, It is written, My Bayit is the Bayit of Tefillah: but you have made it a den of thieves!
47 And He taught daily in the Beit HaMikdash. But the chief kohanim and the Sophrim and the chief of the people sought to destroy Him,
48 And could not find what they might do: for all the people were very attentive to hear Him.
20 And it came to pass, that on one of those yamim, as He taught the people in the Beit HaMikdash and proclaimed The Besorah; the chief kohanim and the Sophrim came to Him with the zechanim,
2 And spoke to Him, saying, Tell us, by what authority do You do these things? Or, who is he that gave You this authority?
3 And He answered and said to them, I will also ask you one thing; and answer Me:
4 The mikvah of Yochanan, was it from the shamayim, or from men?
5 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, If we shall say, From the shamayim; He will say, Why then didn’t you believe him?
6 But if we say, Of men; all the people will stone us: for they are persuaded that Yochanan was a navi.
7 And they answered, that they could not tell where it was from.
8 And YAHUSHA said to them, Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things.
9 Then He began to speak to the people this parable; A certain man planted a vineyard, and leased it forth to farmers and went into a far country for a long time.
10 And at the season he sent an eved to the farmers, that they should give him of the fruit of the vineyard: but the farmers beat him and sent him away empty.
11 And again he sent another eved: and they beat him also and treated him shamefully and sent him away empty.
12 And again he sent a third: and they wounded him also and threw him out.
13 Then said the master of the vineyard, What shall I do? I will send my beloved son: it may be they will reverence him when they see him.
14 But when the farmers saw him, they reasoned among themselves, saying, This is the heir: come; let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours.
15 So they cast him out of the vineyard and killed him. What therefore shall the master of the vineyard do to them?
16 He shall come and destroy these farmers and shall give the vineyard to others. And when they heard it, they said, Let it not be.
17 And He beheld them and said, What is this then that is written, The Stone that the builders rejected, the same has become The Rosh Pina?
18 Everyone who falls upon that Stone shall be broken; but on whoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
19 And the chief kohanim and the Sophrim the same hour sought to lay hands on Him; but they feared the people: for they perceived that He had spoken this parable against them.
20 And they watched Him and sent forth spies, who pretended to be just men, that they might trap Him in His Words, that so they might deliver Him to the power and authority of the governor.
21 And they asked Him, saying, Master, we know that You say and teach rightly, neither are You partial to any man, but teach the halacha of Ahloha truly:
22 Is it right for us to give taxes to Kaiser, or not?
23 But He perceived their craftiness and said to them, Why do you try Me?
24 Show Me a silver piece. Whose image and inscription does it have? They answered and said, Kaiser’s.
25 And He said to them, Render therefore to Kaiser the things that are Kaiser’s and to YHUH the things that are YHUH ’s.
26 And they could not catch Him in His Words before the people: and they marveled at His answer and held their silence.
27 Then came to Him certain of the Tzadukim, who deny that there is any resurrection; and they asked Him,
28 Saying, Master, Moshe Rabainu wrote to us, If any man’s brother dies, having an isha and he dies without children, that his brother should take his isha and raise up zera for his brother.
29 There were therefore seven brothers: and the first took an isha and died without children.
30 And the second took her as an isha and he died childless.
31 And the third took her; and in like manner all seven also: and they all left no children and died.
32 Last of all the woman died also.
33 Therefore in the resurrection whose isha is she? For all seven had her as an isha.
34 And YAHUSHA answering said to them, The children of the olam hazeh marry and are given in marriage:
35 But those who shall be accounted worthy to obtain the olam haba and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage:
36 Neither can they die anymore: for they are like the heavenly malachim; and are the children of Ahloha, being the children of the resurrection.
37 Now that the dead are raised, even Moshe showed at the bush, when he called The Master YHUH the Ahloha of Avraham and the Ahloha of Yitzchak and the Ahloha of Yaakov.
38 For He is not the Ahloha of the dead, but of the living: for all live to Him.
39 Then certain of the Sophrim answering said, Master, You have well said.
40 And after that they did not ask Him any question at all.
41 And He said to them, How do they say that The Moshiach is Dawid’s Son?
42 And yet Dawid himself said in the Scroll of Tehillim, The Master YHUH said to My Master, Sit on My Right Hand,
43 Until I make Your enemies Your footstool.
44 Dawid therefore called Him Master, how is He then Dawid’s son?
45 Then in the presence of all the people He said to His talmidim,
46 Beware of the Sophrim, who desire to walk in long robes and love greetings in the markets and the highest seats in the synagogues and the best places at moadeem;
47 Who embezzle widows’ houses and for a show make long tefillot: these shall receive greater damnation.
21 And He looked up and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury.
2 And He saw also a certain poor widow casting in there her two small coins.
3 And He said, Of an emet I say to you, That this poor widow has thrown in more than all of them:
4 For all these have from their abundance thrown into the terumah to Ahloha: but she from her poverty has thrown in all that she had to live on.
5 And as some spoke of the Beit HaMikdash, how it was adorned with beautiful stones and gift offerings, He said,
6 As for these things which you see, the yamim will come, in which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
7 And they asked Him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? And what ot will there be when these things shall come to pass?
8 And He said, Take heed that you be not deceived: for many shall come in My Name, saying, I AM The Moshiach; and the time draws near: go not therefore after them.
9 But when you shall hear of wars and unrest, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not immediately.
10 Then He said to them, Nation shall rise against nation and malchut against malchut:
11 And great earthquakes shall be in diverse places and famines and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from the shamayim; and the winters shall be severe.
12 But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and into prisons, being brought before melechim and rulers for My Name’s sake.
13 And it shall turn into a testimony for you.
14 Settle it therefore in your levavot, not to meditate before what you shall answer:
15 For I will give you a mouth and chochmah, that all your adversaries shall not be able to refute nor resist.
16 And you shall be betrayed both by parents and brothers and mishpacha and chaverim; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.
17 And you shall be hated of all men for My Name’s sake.
18 But there shall not a hair of your head perish.
19 Possess your lives by your endurance to the end.
20 And when you shall see Yahrushalayim surrounded with armies, then know that the destruction of it is near.
21 Then let those who are in province of Yahudah flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter into it.
22 For these are the yamim of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.
23 But woe to them that are with child and to them that nurse, in those yamim! For there shall be great distress in the land and wrath upon this people.
24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword and shall be led away captive into all goyim: and Yahrushalayim shall be trodden down by the goyim, until the times of the goyim be fulfilled.
25 And there shall be signs in the shemesh and in the yarayach and in the cochavim; and upon the earth distress of goyim, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
26 Men’s levavot failing them for fear and for looking after those things that are coming on the earth: for the powers of the shamayim shall be shaken.
27 And then shall they see The Ben Ahdahm coming on clouds with a large army and great tifereth.
28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up and lift up your heads; for your geulah draws near.
29 And He spoke to them a parable; See the fig eytz and all the eytzim;
30 When they already budded, you see and know for yourselves that summer is now near at hand.
31 So likewise, when you see these things come to pass, know that the malchut of YHUH is near at hand.
32 Truly I say to you, This generation shall not pass away, until all be fulfilled.
33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but My Words shall not pass away.
34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your levavot be weighed down with gluttony and drunkenness and worries of this chayim, so that yom comes upon you suddenly.
35 For like a downpour shall it come to trap all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
36 Watch therefore and make tefillah always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass and to stand before The Ben Ahdahm.
37 And in the daytime He was teaching in the Beit HaMikdash; and at lyla He went out and stayed on the har that is called the Har of Olives.
38 And all the people came early in the boker to Him in the Beit HaMikdash, to hear Him.
22 Now the moed of Chag Matzoth drew near, which is called The Pesach.
2 And the chief kohanim and Sophrim sought how they might kill Him; but they feared the people.
3 Then entered s.a.tan into Yahudah surnamed Qerioth, being from the number of the twelve.
4 And he went his way and communed with the chief kohanim and captains, how he might betray Him to them.
5 And they were glad and covenanted to give him money.
6 And he promised and sought opportunity to betray Him to them in the absence of the multitude.
7 Then approached Chag Matzoth, when the Pesach must be killed.
8 And He sent Kefa and Yochanan, saying, Go and prepare for us the Pesach that we may eat.
9 And they said to Him, Where do You want us to prepare?
10 And He said to them, See, when you enter into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of mayim; follow him into the bayit where he enters in.
11 And you shall say to the owner of the bayit, The Master says to you, Where is the guest room, where I may eat the Pesach with My talmidim?
12 And he shall show you a large upper room furnished: there make ready.
13 And they went and found as He had said to them: and they made ready the Pesach.
14 And when the hour was come, He sat down and the twelve shlichim with Him.
15 And He said to them, With desire I have desired to eat this Pesach with you before I suffer:
16 For I say to you, I will not anymore eat of it, until it be fulfilled in the malchut of YHUH.
17 And He took the cup and gave hodu and said, Take this and divide it among yourselves:
18 For I say to you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the malchut of YHUH shall come.
19 And He took matzah and said the bracha and broke it and gave it to them, saying, This is My gooff which is given for you: this do in remembrance of Me.
20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the Brit Chadasha in My dahm, which is shed for you.
21 But, see, the hand of him that betrays Me is with Me on the shulchan.
22 And truly The Ben Ahdahm goes, as it was determined: but woe to that man by whom He is betrayed!
23 And they began to inquire among themselves, which of them it was that should do this act.
24 And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be the greatest.
25 And He said to them, The melechim of the goyim exercise rule over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called doers of tov.
26 But you shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the least; and he that is a leader, be as he that does serve.
27 For who is greater, he that sits down, or he that serves the one sitting? Is it not he that sits to eat? But I AM among you as one that serves.
28 You are those who have continued with Me in My trials.
29 And I appoint to you a malchut, as My Abba has appointed to Me;
30 That you may eat and drink at My shulchan in My malchut and sit on thrones being shophtim over the twelve tribes of Yisrael.
31 And He said, Shimon, Shimon, see, s.a.tan has desired to have you, that he may sift all of you as wheat:
32 But I have made tefillah for you, that your emunah fails not: and when you have repented, strengthen your Yisraelite brothers.
33 And he said to Him, Master, I am ready to go with You, both into prison and to death.
34 And He said, I tell you, Kefa, the cock shall not crow this yom, before you shall three times deny that you know Me.
35 And He said to them, When I sent you without purse and bag and sandals, did you lack anything? And they said, Nothing.
36 Then said He to them, But now, he that has a purse, let him take it and likewise his bag: and he that has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one.
37 For I say to you, That this that was written must yet be accomplished in Me, I was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning Me must be fulfilled.
38 And they said, Master, see, here are two swords. And He said to them, It is enough.
39 And He came out and went, as He was accustomed, to the Har of Olives; and His talmidim also followed Him.
40 And when He was at the place, He said to them, Make tefillah that you enter not into trial.
41 And He was withdrawn from them about a stone’s throw and kneeled down and made tefillah,
42 Saying, Abba, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me: nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.
43 And there appeared a heavenly malach to Him from the shamayim, strengthening Him.
44 And being in agony He made tefillah more earnestly: and His sweat became like great drops of dahm as He fell down to the ground.
45 And when He rose up from tefillah and came to His talmidim, He found them sleeping due to sorrow,
46 And said to them, Why do you sleep? Rise and make tefillah, lest you enter into trial.
47 And while He yet spoke, see a multitude and he that was called Yahudah, one of the twelve, went before them and drew near to YAHUSHA to kiss Him.
48 But YAHUSHA said to him, Yahudah, do you betray The Ben Ahdahm with a kiss?
49 When those who were around Him saw what would follow, they said to Him, Master, shall we smite with the sword?
50 And one of them smote the eved of the Kohen HaGadol and cut off his right ear.
51 And YAHUSHA answered and said, Enough already. And He touched the ear of the one who was struck and healed him.
52 Then YAHUSHA said to the chief kohanim and captains of the Beit HaMikdash and the zechanim, who had come to Him, Have you come out, like against a thief, with swords and staves?
53 When I was daily with you in the Beit HaMikdash, you did not even point your hands against Me: but this is your time and the power of darkness.
54 Then they took Him and led Him and brought Him into the Kohen HaGadol’s bayit. And Kefa followed far off.
55 And when they had lit a fire in the midst of the hall and were sat down together, Kefa sat down among them.
56 But a certain eved girl beheld him as he sat by the fire and earnestly looked at him and said, This man was also with Him.
57 And he denied Him, saying, Woman, I know Him not.
58 And after a little while another saw him and said, You are also one of them. And Kefa said, Man, I am not.
59 And about the space of one hour later another confidently affirmed, saying, Of an emet this fellow also was with Him: for he is a Galilaean.
60 And Kefa said, Man, I know nothing of what you are saying. And immediately, while he was yet speaking, the cock crew.
61 And YAHUSHA turned and looked at Kefa. And Kefa remembered The Word of YAHUSHA, how He had said to him, Before the cock crows, you shall deny Me three times.
62 And Kefa went out and wept bitterly.
63 And the men that held YAHUSHA mocked Him and smote Him.
64 And when they had blindfolded Him, they struck Him on the face and asked Him, saying, Prophesy, who is it that smote You?
65 And many other things blasphemously they spoke against Him.
66 And as soon as it was yom, the zechanim of the people and the chief kohanim and the Sophrim came together and led Him into their council chamber, saying,
67 Are You Moshiach? Tell us. And He said to them, If I tell you, you will not believe:
68 And if I also ask you, you will not answer Me, nor let Me go.
69 Hereafter shall The Ben Ahdahm sit on the Right Hand of The Power of YHUH.
70 Then they all said, Are You then The Son of El-Elyon? And He said to them, You say that I AM!
71 And they said, What need we any further witness? For we ourselves have heard from His own mouth.
23 And the whole multitude of them arose and led Him to Pilate.
2 And they began to accuse Him, saying, We found this fellow perverting the nation and forbidding giving taxes to Kaiser, saying that He Himself is The Moshiach, A Melech.
3 And Pilate asked Him, saying, Are You The Melech of the Yahudim? And He answered him and said, You said it.
4 Then said Pilate to the chief kohanim and to the people, I find no fault in this Man.
5 And they were angrier, saying, He stirs up the people, teaching throughout all the province of Yahudah, beginning from Galil to this place.
6 When Pilate heard of Galil, he asked whether the Man were a Galilaean.
7 And as soon as he knew that He belonged to Herod’s jurisdiction, he sent Him to Herod, who himself also was at Yahrushalayim at that time.
8 And when Herod saw YAHUSHA, he was exceedingly in simcha: for he had desired to see Him for a long time because he had heard many things about Him; and he hoped to have seen some miracle done by Him.
9 Then he questioned Him in many words; but He answered him nothing.
10 And the chief kohanim and Sophrim stood and vehemently accused Him.
11 And Herod with his men of war insulted Him and mocked Him and dressed Him in a scarlet robe and sent Him again to Pilate.
12 And the same yom Pilate and Herod were made chaverim: for before they were at enmity between themselves.
13 And Pilate, when he had called together the chief kohanim and the rulers of the people,
14 Said to them, You have brought this Man to me, as one that misleads your people: and, see, I, having examined Him before you, have found no fault in this Man concerning those things of which you accuse Him:
15 No, not even Herod: for I sent you to him; and, see, nothing worthy of death is done by Him.
16 I will therefore chastise Him and release Him.
17 For because of a necessity he must release one to them at the moed.
18 And they cried out all at once, saying, Away with this Man and release to us Bar-Abba:
19 Who for a certain uprising made in the city and for murder, was thrown into prison;
20 Pilate therefore, willing to release YAHUSHA, spoke again to them.
21 But they cried, saying, Impale Him! Impale Him!
22 And he said to them the third time, Why, what evil has He done? I have found no cause of death in Him: I will therefore chastise Him and let Him go.
23 And they insisted with loud voices, requiring that He might be impaled. And the voices of them and of the chief kohanim prevailed.
24 And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required.
25 And he released to them, the one that for sedition and murder was thrown into prison, whom they had desired; but he delivered YAHUSHA to their will.
26 And as they led Him away, they laid hold upon one Shimon, a Cyrenian, coming out of the country and on him they laid the execution stake, that he might bear it after YAHUSHA.
27 And there followed Him a great group of people and of women, who also mourned and lamented Him.
28 But YAHUSHA turning to them said, Daughters of Yahrushalayim, weep not for Me, but weep for yourselves and for your children.
29 For, see, the yamim are coming, in which they shall say, Blessed are the barren and the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed.
30 Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.
31 For if they do these things in a green eytz, what shall be done in the dry?
32 And there were also two others, they were wicked ones, who were led with Him to be put to death.
33 And when they were come to the place, which is called The Skull, there they impaled Him, with the wicked ones, one on the right hand and the other on the left.
34 Then said YAHUSHA, Abba, forgive them; for they know not what they do! And they parted His garment and cast lots.
35 And the people stood staring. And the synagogue rulers also with them sneering, saying, He saved others; let Him save Himself, if He is The Moshiach, the chosen One of Ahloha.
36 And the soldiers also mocked Him, coming to Him and offering Him vinegar,
37 And saying, If You are The Melech of the Yahudim, save Yourself.
38 And an inscription also was written over Him in letters of Greek and Latin and Ivrit, THIS IS THE MELECH OF THE YAHUDIM.
39 And one of the wicked ones who were hanged blasphemed against Him, saying, If You are The Moshiach, save Yourself and us.
40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Don’t you fear Ahloha, seeing you are under the same condemnation?
41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this Man has done nothing wrong.
42 And he said to YAHUSHA, Master, remember me when You come into Your malchut.
43 And YAHUSHA said to him, Truly I say to you, Today shall you be with Me in Gan Ayden.
44 And it was about the sixth hour and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.
45 And the shemesh was darkened and the veil at the Hekel of the Beit HaMikdash was torn in the midst.
46 And when YAHUSHA had cried with a loud voice, He said, O My Abba, into Your hands I commit My ruach: and having said this, He gave up the ruach.
47 Now when the centurion saw what was done, he esteemed Ahloha, saying, Certainly this was The Tzadik Man.
48 And all the people that came together to that sight, beholding the things that were done, smote their breasts and returned.
49 And all His acquaintances and the women that followed Him from Galil, stood far off, beholding these things.
50 And, see, there was a man named Yoseph a Sanhedrin member; and he was a tov tzadik man,
51 He had not agreed with the counsel and their deed – he was from Ramathayim, a city of Yahudah: who also himself waited for the malchut of YHUH.
52 This man went to Pilate and asked for the gooff of YAHUSHA.
53 And he took it down and wrapped it in linen and laid it in a tomb that was cut in stone, in which never a man before was laid.
54 And that yom was the preparation and The Shabbat was about to dawn.
55 And the women also, who came with Him from Galil, followed after and beheld the tomb and how His gooff was laid.
56 And they returned and prepared spices and ointments; and rested on The Shabbat Yom (annual Shabbat of Aviv 15) according to the commandment.
24 But really early in the boker on one of the weekly Shabbats (Aviv 18) they came to the tomb, bringing the spices that they had prepared and certain others with them.
2 And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb.
3 And they entered in and found not the gooff of YAHUSHA.
4 And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed about it, see, two men stood by them in shining garments:
5 And as they were afraid and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said to them, Why seek you the living among the dead?
6 He is not here, but is risen: remember how He spoke to you when He was yet in Galil,
7 Saying, The Ben Ahdahm must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be impaled and the third yom rise again.
8 And they remembered His Words,
9 And returned from the tomb and told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest.
10 It was Miryam from Magdala and Yochana and Miryam the eema of Yaakov and other women that were with them, who told these things to the shlichim.
11 And their words seemed to them as idle tales and they believed them not.
12 Then arose Kefa and ran to the tomb; and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves and departed, wondering within himself about all that which had come to pass.
13 And, see, two of them went that same yom to a village called Amma-Us, which was from Yahrushalayim about six miles.
14 And they talked together about all those things that had happened.
15 And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, YAHUSHA Himself drew near and went with them.
16 But their eyes were restrained so that they could not recognize Him.
17 And He said to them, What manner of communications are these that you have with each other, as you walk and are sad?
18 And one of them, whose name was Qleophas, answering said to Him, Are You only a ger in Yahrushalayim and have not known the things that have come to pass in it in these yamim?
19 And He said to them, What things? And they said to Him, Concerning YAHUSHA of Natzeret, who was a Navi mighty in mitzvoth and Word before Ahloha and all the people of Yisrael:
20 And how the chief kohanim and our rulers delivered Him to be condemned to death and have impaled Him.
21 But we trusted that it was He who should have redeemed Yisrael: and besides all this, today is the third yom since these things were done.
22 Yes and certain women also of our group made us astonished, who were earlier at the tomb;
23 And when they found not His gooff, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of heavenly malachim, who said that He was alive.
24 And certain of those who were with us went to the tomb and found it even as the women had said: but Him they did not see.
25 Then He said to them, O fools and slow of lev to believe all that the neviim have spoken:
26 Did not The Moshiach have to suffer all these things, in order to enter into His tifereth?
27 And beginning at Moshe Rabainu and all the neviim, He expounded to them in all the Keetvay HaKadosh the things concerning Himself.
28 And they drew near to the village, where they went: and He made them think He was going to a far place.
29 But they constrained Him, saying, Remain with us: for it is toward evening and the yom is nearly dark. And He went in to stay with them.
30 And it came to pass, as He sat to eat with them, He took lechem and said the bracha and broke it and gave some to them.
31 And their eyes were opened and they knew Him; and He vanished out of their sight.
32 And they said one to another, Were not our minds dull within us, while He talked with us on the road and interpreted the Keetvay HaKadosh to us?
33 And they rose up the same hour and returned to Yahrushalayim and found the eleven gathered together and them that were with them,
34 Saying, our Master is risen indeed and has appeared to Shimon.
35 And they told what things were done on the road and how He was known by them in the breaking of lechem.
36 And as they spoke,Yahushua Himself stood in the midst of them and said to them, Shalom Aleichem. It is I; don’t be afraid.
37 But they were confused and frightened and thought that they had seen a ruach.
38 And He said to them, Why are you troubled? And why do thoughts arise in your levavot?
39 See My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself: handle Me and understand and see; for a ruach has no flesh and bones, as you see I have.
40 And when He had spoken this, He showed them His Hands and His feet.
41 And while they yet believed not for simcha and wondered, He said to them, Have you here any food?
42 And they gave Him a piece of broiled fish and a honeycomb.
43 And He took it and did eat before them.
44 And He said to them, These are the Words that I spoke to you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the Torah of Moshe and in the Neviim and in the Tehillim, concerning Me.
45 Then He opened their binah, that they might understand the Keetvay HaKadosh,
46 And said to them, So it is written and so it was necessary that The Moshiach suffer and rise from the dead on the third yom:
47 And that teshuvah for remission of sins should be proclaimed in His Name among all goyim, beginning at Yahrushalayim.
48 And you are witnesses of these things.
49 And, see, I send the Promise of My Abba upon you: but remain in the city of Yahrushalayim, until you are clothed with Power from on high.
50 And He led them out as far as to Beth-Anya, and He lifted up His Hands and made a bracha over them.
51 And it came to pass, while He blessed them, He departed from them and went up into the shamayim.
52 And they worshipped Him and returned to Yahrushalayim with great simcha:
53 And were continually in the Beit HaMikdash, giving tehillot and brachot to YHUH. Ahmein. X
He Has Risen Indeed!
LUKE 1:3 The book of Luke was written originally to Theophilus, who served as High Priest from 37 to 42 C.E. Theophilus was both a priest and a Sadducee. It would appear that this evangel was intended to be used by others as well and was likely targeted at Sadducee readers. Theophilus was the son of Annas and the brother-in-law of Caiaphas.
LUKE 1:15 A Nazarite.
LUKE 1:17 To turn the fathers of Judah to the forthcoming children of YAH , or returning Efrayim, to prepare Israel as a people for Messiah by replacing disobedience with Torah.
LUKE 1:32 Not the throne of Roman pontiffs.
LUKE 1:33 Messiah rules over the House of Israel forever. This verse, among many others, shows that He came to renew Israel forever and did not come to establish a separate entity apart from historic and physical Israel.
LUKE 1:47 Mary, a sinner needs salvation.
LUKE 1:51 Metaphor for Israel’s Messiah.
LUKE 1:54 The nation of Israel is also the son of YAH.
LUKE 1:59 In Israel male children are named at brit-milah/circumcision not at birth.
LUKE 1:72 The Immerser and The Messiah were coming to prepare Israel for the kingdom, not to look for pagans to bring into Israel without any repentance.
LUKE 1:73 The blessings of Messiah and physical multiplicity, which always are considered a single promise, that goes hand in hand.
LUKE 1:76 The Spirit speaking through Zachariah considered Messiah to be the full manifestation of YAH Himself.
LUKE 1:79 A clear reference to Messiah's work among the northern tribes, as seen in Isaiah 9:1-3.
LUKE 2:1 Land of Israel.
LUKE 2:7 Menorah cloth strips used to light the menorah.
LUKE 2:7 The word “inn” does not appear in the Aramaic, or Greek texts. Messiah was laid in the animal sukkah because the family sukkah was full.
LUKE 2:11 As it literally appears in the Aramaic. Messiah The Master YAH , or Mar-YAH.
LUKE 2:25 Further evidence that non-Jewish-Israel, or the 10 tribes had not been reunited with Judah after the Babylonian captivity.
LUKE 2:31 Efrayim-Yisraelite nations, or peoples.
LUKE 2:32 Unveil their blindness to Torah and their own lineage to Jacob.
LUKE 2:32 In context Jewish-Israel.
LUKE 2:34 Fall of Judah and rising of Efrayim, a clear cut prophesy of Messiah's mission between both houses of Israel.
LUKE 2:36 Proof that some mixing, or overlap occurred between the two houses.
LUKE 2:38 Interesting how her message of Israel’s redemption, i.e. the end of the exile and return of all the tribes, was the same burden expressed by the same Spirit that moved Simeon.
LUKE 3:8 This does not negate the two-house truth at all. Rather what is being proclaimed is that ethnic origin does not lead to a free pass to salvation. One must be born again.
LUKE 3:17 Yisrael.
LUKE 3:23 The Greek word enomizeto from the root word nomos-instruction-Torah, meaning the lawful heir to be Joseph’s son by adoption, as well to be the final lawful Malki-Tzedek High Priest, through law and custom. What follows in Luke chapter 3, is not a genealogy. This is what has confused and blinded millions throughout the centuries. It is the list of the priestly order of Malki-Tzedek. The only genealogy regarding the rightful heirs to the Davidic throne, including David himself being a restorer of the ancient order of Malki-Tzedek, is found in Matthew chapter one.
LUKE 3:38 Peshitta.
LUKE 4:14 In the area of the northern tribes of Efrayim.
LUKE 4:18 LXX-The exiles of Israel who need spiritual sight, freedom from exile and sin and a remarriage to their King. The concept here is one of liberty, or jubilee for the exiles of the nation. Deliverance is a key to the proclamation of the Good News.
LUKE 4:21 The official announcement that Israel’s nightmare of national exile was over and that the regathering process had begun that very day in that very synagogue.
LUKE 4:22 In first-century understanding, The Messiah would come in two persons – one to suffer and regather the ten lost tribes and the other to reign on Dawid’s throne. The plain declaration here is that Messiah is Joseph’s stepson, but on the remez, or hint understanding the question being raised in light of Messiah's pronouncement of Isaiah 61 coming to fulfillment was: Is this man whom we knew as a boy really The Messiah Ben (or “Son of”) Joseph, or the suffering Messiah to die in a war (over evil) in order to return Israel’s exiles?
LUKE 4:25 The House of Israel as seen in Old Syriac manuscript is telling. Rather than simply “Israel,” Messiah’s pronouncement was that just as YAH visited the widow woman from the House of Israel, or ten tribes and just as YAH visited Naaman from the Arameans, among whom Efrayim mixed, He would come and rescue those same ten tribes and deliver them, using these two figures as examples of His mission as Messiah Son of Joseph. The response of brother Judah can be seen in verses 28-29.
LUKE 4:29 Sadly not much has changed. When Judah/Jewish-Israel is confronted with the reality of his brother’s return through Messiah's favor, they choose either to ignore it, or get angry with those who are merely the messengers for the kingdom.
LUKE 4:30 Regardless of the opponents of two-house restoration, they will not deter Messiah who merely goes about His way shown Him by The Father.
LUKE 4:37 The north was already considered a different country in Messiah’s day.
LUKE 4:43 Of Israel.
LUKE 4:44 Territory of the ten tribes.
LUKE 5:3 Two ships are symbolic of Messiah’s calling to both houses with the Good News of the kingdom. Sitting in one boat symbolizes that His teaching will come to both houses from the house of Judah.
LUKE 5:7Both houses sinking need rescue from Messiah, since this world is full of Yisraelite fish. The only thing lacking are more fishers of these men.
LUKE 5:9 When people discover the truth of Israel’s multitudes, 4-5 billion strong, they are astonished and can only worship The Melech.
LUKE 5:10 Men are Israel, as per Ezekiel 34:31.
LUKE 5:15 Multitudes of Efrayim.
LUKE 5:15 Were gathered.
LUKE 5:32 Sick wandering exiles.
LUKE 5:38 New wine of Messiah's Torah teachings must be put into Renewed Covenant Israel, not merely physical Israel.
LUKE 5:39 New wine must be drunk along with old wine, not old wine alone. A reminder to those who want Messiah’s wine, without Messiah.
LUKE 6:4 Showbread.
LUKE 6:4 See notes on Mark 2:26.
LUKE 6:5 Meaning He alone knows what constitutes a violation of Shabbat and would never engage in it.
LUKE 6:9 Messiah has to reinforce the principle of yeshuat nefesh, or the saving of life, that overrides all laws and regulations. This is the heart of the Torah and is what Messiah is reintroducing to all Israel.
LUKE 6:13 One for each tribe of Israel, showing that the restoration of Israel is the Good News of the kingdom.
LUKE 6:42 In the great return both houses need to walk in mercy, not holding one house better than the other, or lifting one above the other and not criticizing and finding fault with one house's errors and shortcomings without first seeing the sin and error in our own eyes, or our own house. Both houses are in a time where splinters and beams are being removed through teaching, understanding and mutual acceptance.

LUKE 6:48 Redeemed Torah-observant Israel, the one united house set on Messiah as King.
LUKE 6:49 Those who claim to be redeemed but do not perform the eternal commands of Torah.
LUKE 7:8 The centurion perceived well, that even Messiah was under The Father’s authority, who remains the Greater YAH.
LUKE 7:9 Either the centurion was a true non-Yisraelite, or Messiah limited His remarks to the lack of faith He found in Jewish-Israel.
LUKE 7:19 Representing both houses of Israel.
LUKE 7:20 Are you Messiah Ben/Son of Joseph, or Ben/Son of Dawid? The question was not: Are you The Messiah? Rather, the question was: Which one are you? The Ruling One, or the Dying One?
LUKE 7:21 Answered by demonstration.
LUKE 7:23 My role to die and regather Israel.
LUKE 7:35 Aramaic Peshitta fits the text. Despite all the heavenly music and repenting going on around them, the leaders of Jewish-Israel refused to hear and as such their works showed their true heart towards Messiah.
LUKE 7:42 A reference to both houses. Who will love Him the most in their return? The house that was the guiltiest. That applies to individuals as well.
LUKE 7:48 The woman is a type of forgiven Israel.
LUKE 8:17The unveiling of the mystery of the ingathering of the exiles into the restored kingdom will be proclaimed abroad as a light to all nations.
LUKE 8:21 All Israel that hears and does the Torah commands.
LUKE 8:39 Yahusha clearly claiming to be YHUH, The One that delivers and sets free.
LUKE 8:39 Notice YAH and Messiah are one.
LUKE 8:42 Twelve years old. The number “12” showing that this girl is a type of Israel, with all her 12 tribes, dying unless The Messiah intervenes.
LUKE 8:43 See note on Matthew 9:20. A woman bleeding was considered unfit and unclean in Torah.
LUKE 8:44 Malachi 4:2.
LUKE 8:47 The unveiling of the sick woman with an issue of blood, to be healed by Messiah's power to restore and heal all 12 tribes. This is the Good News of the kingdom.
LUKE 8:48 Israel’s national healing is found in bowing the knee to Messiah.
LUKE 8:49 The two women are a type of the two houses of Israel. While one is healed, the other lies dead. The living but ill one is Judah and the dead one is Efrayim. But when Messiah finishes His work of atonement, the dead resurrected husband (Messiah) will bring life and healing to both of Israel’s daughters.
LUKE 8:50 See note for Luke 8:42.
LUKE 8:52 Israel's problem was and remains not merely death, but spiritual slumber regarding the times of her redemption.
LUKE 9:1 For the 12 tribes.
LUKE 9:13 That’s enough manna. Five loaves represent all five books of Torah and the two fishes represent both houses of the multitudes of Israel, who will be fed Torah by The Messiah.
LUKE 9:14 In order for both houses to receive jubilee, from slavery to exile and sin.
LUKE 9:16 YAH uses people to bring restoration and work His purposes in the earth.
LUKE 9:17 See note on Matthew 14:20.
LUKE 9:35 See notes on Mark 9:5, Matthew 17:1.4.5.
LUKE 9:52 Samaritans were Efraimites as seen in John 4 and in historical records.
LUKE 9:53 Samaritans didn’t like Jews either and we see the hatred between the two houses on display.
LUKE 9:61 Aramaic Peshitta.
LUKE 10:1 Perhaps a Sanhedrin for those in the exile.
LUKE 10:3 Lambs are Israel. Wolves are pagans.
LUKE 10:7 Stay in and among the visible people of Israel for now, before going to the nations.
LUKE 10:11 Aramaic krubat, an offered near event, or thing.
LUKE 10:14 Former Phoenician coastline where many Efraimites migrated. Messiah compares Efrayim’s state of repentance with Judah’s ongoing pride.
LUKE 10:20 Lamb’s Book of Life.
LUKE 10:24 A clear reference to the prophets of Israel and their ancient desire for all Israel to be redeemed. Also for the exile and captivity of both houses to be brought to an end in the full restoration of Dawid's Tabernacle.
LUKE 11:2 The Kadesh. A prayer for the coming restored kingdom to all Israel, as the earthly Jerusalem becomes free like the Jerusalem above.
LUKE 11:17 See note on Mark 3:25. Also note the exact wording “house against a house.” Two-house reference.
LUKE 11:23 People will either gather Israel, or scatter her anew. Both houses must work together on His agenda, not their own kingdom.
LUKE 11:34 Stingy people don’t have the necessary receptivity to kingdom things. Financial greed is a good indicator of a state of mind, which is not fully open to the things of the kingdom.
LUKE 11:36 YAH expects His children to be generous with others, especially so in extending mercy and compassion, which is the heart of the Torah.
LUKE 11:45 A man called to Israel’s restoration cannot worry about people’s responses, or reactions.
LUKE 11:46 Men in Scripture are almost always a veiled reference to Israel, the men of His pasture. These leaders were preventing the restoration of the kingdom, by rejecting the offer of the kingdom as well as its King.
LUKE 11:52 The key is the Name of salvation Messiah, or YAH saves. Without the Name of YAH the door does not open (Acts 4:12).
LUKE 12:14 Like Messiah, we who are serious about restoration ought to avoid worldly entanglements that are not absolutely essential.
LUKE 12:21 Yisraelites must be building the kingdom of Israel, not bigger barns, symbolic of bigger plans for, of and by self.
LUKE 12:30 Yisraelite believers are not nations. There is no such thing as saved nations.
LUKE 12:32 The redeemed remnant from both houses is referred to here as a small “called out” flock. Remnant Israel, as opposed to all of physical Israel will be a very small remnant.
LUKE 12:36 Like other Yisraelites.
LUKE 12:49 He was sent to purify and cleanse the earth.
LUKE 12:53 His claim to be YAH’s Son will cause great division in the house. What house? The people of Israel will be greatly divided, as well as each family unit within Israel.
LUKE 13:3 Jews as well as Efraimites must repent from sin, to prevent a second death of perishing in the Lake of Fire.
LUKE 13:6 The secondary symbol of the nation of Israel, following the olive tree, both making up YAH’s vineyard.
LUKE 13:9 YAH’s patience with all Israel.
LUKE 13:16 The woman is a type of Israel, with 18 being the number of life, or chayim, meaning when Israel meets Messiah, all things are made straight as said in Isaiah chapter 40.
LUKE 13:19 A parable of Renewed Covenant Israel’s growth in accordance with physical multiplicity, so that it contains both spirit-born and spiritually dead members. Fowls represent demons and falsehoods.
LUKE 13:21 See note on Matthew 13:33.
LUKE 13:24 Many from the multitudes of Israel.
LUKE 13:27 Without Torah obedience, Messiah will not recognize one’s service, or the spirit under which that person operates.
LUKE 13:28 Notice that all of the Hebrew patriarchs and by implication matriarchs, will be there. So this is not a rejection of Israel. Rather it is a rejection of one generation of leaders, who willfully rejected Him.
LUKE 13:29 In contrast to the Jewish leaders of that generation, the reference here is to the return of the exiles of Israel from the four corners of the earth to which they were scattered. Four-corner references, such as Isaiah 11:12 and Jeremiah 31:8, always refer to Israel alone and her return in the last days through Messiah. These verses then are not a removal of the kingdom from Israel, but rather an expansion of the kingdom to all Israel, even those at the earth’s four corners, that is Efrayim-Israel.
LUKE 13:30 Role reversal of the two houses. Efrayim enters before Judah, who fully enters at the Second Advent.
LUKE 13:34 Gathering Israel. The true and primary mission of Messiah.
LUKE 13:35 Rather than gather Israel at that time, the house would remain divided and therefore desolate of unity and immediate healing.
LUKE 14:13When a biblical feast is celebrated it can and should be used to reach the lost. YAH’s feasts are evangelistic in nature.
LUKE 14:20 Judah’s many excuses regarding why Messiah, cannot be the promised King.
LUKE 14:21 The global call to Efrayim.
LUKE 14:23 Non-biological Yisraelites, who become redeemed Israel by invitation.
LUKE 14:24 First-century Jewish leaders.
LUKE 14:26 Kal VaChomer. If you love your family, how much more should you love Me? This is not a signal to hate physical family.
LUKE 14:30 Those who fall away after an initial expression of trust, like those who have fallen prey to the anti-Messiah missionaries and who now are mocked as those who are dazed and confused and as those without endurance.
LUKE 14:34 See note on Mark 9:50.
LUKE 14:35 Of Israel.
LUKE 14:35 Other Yisraelites.
LUKE 15:4 The one is a type of Efrayim.
LUKE 15:5 The heart of Messiah in returning the exiles to the fold.
LUKE 15:8 A reference to Efrayim-Israel.
LUKE 15:8 Of Israel.
LUKE 15:8 A reference to the ten tribes and their rediscovery.
LUKE 15:9 The proper attitude of the woman, a type of a righteous Yisraelite, towards the return of anyone from the ten tribes.
LUKE 15:11 This parable is all about the two biological sons of The Father YAH , Judah and Efrayim and displays how Judah should not react to Efrayim’s return, as opposed to the correct reaction outlined earlier in verses 1-10.
LUKE 15:13 In Scripture Efrayim-Israel are those referred to as far off, or far away from Jerusalem, in such places as Ephesians 2:13,17 and Daniel 9:7.
LUKE 15:19 Efrayim’s true repentance and confession.
LUKE 15:20 The Father YAH’s reaction to Efrayim’s return.
LUKE 15:24 Rejoicing at Efrayim’s return in The Father’s House.
LUKE 15:25 Judah.
LUKE 15:26 Many in Judah have always had a problem with understanding what Efrayim’s return really meant.
LUKE 15:28 Judah’s typical initial reaction to Efrayim’s return from the nations. This reaction is still prevalent today.
LUKE 15:29 Upheld Torah.
LUKE 15:30 Notice the reaction of Judah. “Your son,” not “my brother.” He refuses to recognize Efrayim as a brother, seeing him rather as a pagan who betrayed YAH and remains a pig farmer.
LUKE 15:32 The Father’s commentary on family reunion.
LUKE 16:8 A stern rebuke that shows how worldly children of s.a.tan are more shrewd in money matters than Yisraelites, who ought to be the best stewards around, since they are full of the Spirit’s chochmah and discernment. Yet due to this lack of financial shrewdness, the majority of Yisraelites wrongly believe that asking for money for the kingdom is begging, or carnal. In this fault, Messiah shines His light by teaching us that we have much to learn from the children of darkness, when it comes to funding YAH’s will in the earth.
LUKE 16:9 A sarcastic addendum that though we can learn from the world, we cannot go to the carnal for everlasting life and blissful eternal dwelling. That can only be given by Messiah.
LUKE 16:11 A key position in the kingdom of Messiah.
LUKE 16:15 Putting greed before YAH.
LUKE 16:16 See note on Matthew 11:13.
LUKE 16:18 See note on Matthew 19:9.
LUKE 16:19 This is not a parable, but a real afterlife account. In a parable, names are not used. Here they are, so we should see this as a true account of the afterlife.
LUKE 16:26 Abraham’s bosom was the abode of the righteous before Messiah. When Messiah came, He emptied Abraham’s Bosom and took the spirits (not bodies) of the trusting to heaven. Today the believer’s spirit is righteous and according to Hebrews 11, joins the patriarchs and matriarchs in heaven waiting for the resurrection of the last day.
LUKE 16:31 The Torah speaks of Messiah and if they won't believe the witness of the author Moses, they won’t believe even though Messiah rises.
LUKE 17:4Behavior in Israel.
LUKE 17:6 The issue is not how great our faith is, but how big our YAH is, since even a tiny seed of faith moves Him.
LUKE 17:6 The remez, or hint is that our faith in the message of the kingdom is likened to the trees of righteousness, or Israel, planted in the sea of nations and with our faith we find them and plant them in Torah, even while they wander in the nations.
LUKE 17:11 The north, or land of Efrayim where Samaria was the capital.
LUKE 17:12 Ten men are the ten tribes of non-Jewish-Israel. They are lepers, as leprosy is likened to an ongoing state of ritual uncleanness, since Efrayim became unclean in the nations as nations.
LUKE 17:12 “Far off.” A catch term, or scriptural euphemism for the ten tribes who were far off from Israel and Torah.
LUKE 17:13 The voice of Efrayim in their return to Israel.
LUKE 17:14 Messiah, instructs the ten tribes, in their return to perform Torah, which is what they were doing when they became cleansed.
LUKE 17:18 While YAH is calling all ten tribes to return in repentance, only a remnant from Efrayim-Israel will answer that call, while others receive the blessings of Messiah, but won’t return in full obedience and thanksgiving. Also strangers with no Yisraelite blood become Israel, when returning to YAH with a thankful Torah based attitude.
LUKE 17:19 Only a full return through Messiah leads to complete wholeness.
LUKE 17:21 It starts with an inward desire. Inward desire leads to entry. This does not mean that the kingdom won't manifest on earth.
LUKE 17:29 Judgment came the same day that the righteous were sealed and protected and in like manner shall be the return of Messiah. There will not be any interval between the sealing and protection of the righteous and the coming of mishpat, as pre-tribulation rapture theology teaches.
LUKE 17:37 It is clear from this verse and the comparison to Noah’s days, that the ones “taken away” are not the saved but the lost. If there was any doubt, this verse seals it, as the disciples asked where will those “taken away” go and what will be their end. Messiah, answers them by telling them that those “taken away” will go to the vultures for food and mishpat. As Israel, you ought to make tefillah to be left behind.
LUKE 18:2 Yisraelite Torah justice.
LUKE 18:8 True Torah-based trust in Messiah.
LUKE 18:14 The Pharisee represents Judah and the “far off” tax collector represents the heathen Efraimites. If Efrayim humbles himself, he can and will return in full acceptance by The Father. Judah, on the other hand, must also show this attitude of repentance and change, or they will be like the one who has the right liturgy in tefillah, but does not return to the Commonwealth of Israel justified by Messiah.
LUKE 18:19 See note on Matthew 19:17.
LUKE 18:25 See note on Mark 10:25.
LUKE 18:33 As confirmed in Mark 10 the nations, or non-Jews did the actual killing according to Messiah Himself.
LUKE 19:8 Torah repentance always includes restitution – not just diverse sorrows.
LUKE 19:10 Nothing can be clearer. Messiah visited Zacchaeus because he was a lost sheep of Israel. Messiah stated that was the main and primary purpose for His coming.
LUKE 19:13 Another reference to the ten tribes of Israel coming home and waiting, sometimes faithfully, sometimes unfaithfully, for His return to establish the kingdom on earth.
LUKE 19:17 Aramaic word is kakra, not karkha, mistranslated in most Greek texts as “city.”
LUKE 19:29 See note on Matthew 21:1.
LUKE 19:44 Speaking of Jewish-Israel.
LUKE 20:9 Isaiah 5.
LUKE 21:9 Notice how believers are going to be present in the Great Tribulation and as such, are to heed Messiah’s warnings. If they were to be raptured, no warning would be necessary. The elect in both covenants speak only of Israel.
LUKE 21:11 Peshitta.
LUKE 21:20 70 CE under Titus the Roman general, along with an end-time application as well.
LUKE 21:21 By heeding this warning, Nazarene Yisraelites were not killed, or annihilated in the Jewish revolt against Rome. As a consequence of fleeing Jerusalem and not fighting alongside traditional Jews against Rome, the early Nazarene Yisraelites were physically removed and thrown out from the synagogue, fulfilling yet another prophecy by Messiah.
LUKE 21:24 What happened to Efrayim-Israel back in 721 BCE was about to happen to Judah in 70 CE. Both houses would find themselves dispersed throughout the nations, only to be gathered back together in the latter days, as is now occurring. This process finds its culmination in the millennial age to come.
LUKE 21:24 Not to be confused with the "fullness of the nations" which speaks of Efrayim's seed (10 tribes) filling the earth. The "time of the nations" refers to the pagans’ control over Jerusalem coming to an end. That event, as prophesied here, already took place in 1967 CE when the state of Israel recaptured Jerusalem from Jordan ending a 2,000-year domination of Jerusalem by non-Yisraelite foreign powers and gentile religious orders.
LUKE 21:25 These events could not happen before 1967. Now they are right up the road.
LUKE 21:27 Peshitta.
LUKE 21:29 The fig tree (Jewish-Israel) and all the trees (the nations) all bud at the same time (post-1996 CE) as Israel is awakened simultaneously in all the nations. The fig tree (Judah) and the other trees (Efrayim) both wake up and perceive one another, as a budding part of the people of Israel.
LUKE 21:36 Escape death and famine – not the Tribulation itself.
LUKE 22:1 Technically it starts at sundown just after the Passover meal.
LUKE 22:7 See notes on Mark 14:12.
LUKE 22:14 A type of the kingdom and all 12 tribes of Israel in full and total restoration harmony.
LUKE 22:16 This Passover was the actual correct priestly one. Messiah was grieved knowing that this was the final one with His disciples before the next one, which will be the Marriage Suppers of the Lamb.
LUKE 22:26 Proof that all believers are part of physical and spiritual Israel.
LUKE 22:28 Messiah commends those who endure and overcome, not those who confess and don’t follow.
LUKE 22:30 If Messiah came to build a “gentile church” with a few token Jews thrown in, rather than rebuilding Israel from the nations, He certainly would never have made this statement.
LUKE 22:38 A remez, or hint of the two swords being YAH’s two-edged word, being enough to reunite both houses after all things concerning our Suffering King were to be fulfilled.
LUKE 22:51 Peshitta.
LUKE 22:71 See notes on Mark 14:62.
LUKE 23:31 Messiah prophecies the soon destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple.
LUKE 23:31 The green tree is Judah in the land. The dry tree is Judah’s full exile in the nations.
LUKE 23:33 See note on Mark 15:27.
LUKE 23:43 The thief on the tree was the last person in Abraham's Bosom, or Paradise before it was liberated at Messiah’s ascension in accordance with Luke 16.
LUKE 23:45 To the Set-Apart Place, not the Most Set-Apart Place.
LUKE 23:54 The annual Jewish Shabbat of Aviv 15 is the next day.The Passover of Torah Aviv 14 occurred the evening before and the first day of Unleavened Bread Aviv 15 was the day of Preparation of the Jews, which also was the day that Messiah died.
LUKE 24:1 Just before dawn of the weekly Shabbat of Aviv 18.
LUKE 24:4 Possibly as a dual witness to Judah and Efrayim.
LUKE 24:11 Probably because they were women in a male-dominated society.
LUKE 24:13 A type of both houses, wandering in exile outside of Jerusalem, blind to their Messiah and His Torah.
LUKE 24:15 Two-house brotherhood waiting for a revelation from Messiah.
LUKE 24:18 For returning Efraimites who have been called strangers, or non-Yisraelites, don’t feel bad. You’re in very elite company, as here Messiah’s own disciples called Him a “stranger.”
LUKE 24:21 The plain truth: that the true Messiah must redeem and reunite both houses.
LUKE 24:27 The ultimate study.
LUKE 24:28 Peshitta: Note the language in the Aramaic (“to a far place”) as opposed to the Greek. Possibly to Europe, Africa, Asia Minor and elsewhere to gather in the exiles through post-resurrection appearances.
LUKE 24:32 Peshitta.
LUKE 24:36 Peshitta.
LUKE 24:39 This text declares that Messiah did not rise as a spirit, or an invisible spirit. Rather, He arose as a glorified human form without the blood, since that was shed for our atonement and forgiveness. While it was a different form of body, or a spiritual body, it was still with a form, having both flesh and bones, which allowed the disciples to touch and feel Him.
LUKE 24:47 The fullness of all nations, or Efrayim-Israel.
LUKE 24:50 Beth-Anya, or “House of Figs.” There is tremendous symbolism here, as Messiah blesses both houses in His final earthly benediction, as both houses make up the fig tree, a symbol of national Israel throughout Scripture.
LUKE 24:50 Possibly the Aaronic Benediction.
LUKE 24:53 That’s why in Acts chapter 2, they were in The Father’s House, or the Temple, when the Spirit fell, since they were carefully commanded not to depart from the tarrying place, until the promise of the Spirit had arrived. This will become critical in understanding Renewed Covenant Israel, in the follow-up of Luke’s account as found in the Scroll of Acts.
