1 Enoch 85 - 90: The Animal Apocalypse - this text is perfect for getting into the mind of a major prophet.  All historic people and movements of the Pentateuch are represented by animals.  With but a little brainwork, a student of Scripture will surely be able to interpret this text for a class.

Judith and Susanna personify true daughters of Israel; it is remarkable that in the Books of Judith, Susanna and Esther,  Israel is saved by a woman. The fervent nationalism of these books is tempered by openness, for even the pagans recognize the power of YHWH, protector of Israel. The readings are based on the New Jerusalem Bible Books of Judith and Daniel & Susanna.                  Audio only:      stream Judith and Susanna

Apostolic Literature Discarded by Rome and the Church

NEW!  The Didaché, or Hora'ah ~ The Teaching of the Twelve Apostles ~ a new annotated translation interpaginated with the received Greek originated as a practical manual for leaders in the Nazorean (Netzari, Nazarene) movement of the first century (for Yahshua was to be called a Nazorean). The Apostles relay the teachings of the Master on ritualistic life in the kahal, including the Two Roads doctrine, eating, baptizing, fasting, praying, the Todah Rabbah (Communion), teachers, apostles, prophets, overseers and deacons, self-examination among equals, and the Last Days.  We use the Hora'ah when making decisions in the business of the Qahal

T. Flavius Clemens, The Ancient Sermon known as 'Second Clement' or "Clement's second Letter to the Corinthians"  Not only the earliest 'Christian' sermon (so-called), but also one of the best. The author insists on the proselyte's commitment to the Torah and the Way of the assembly.  This sermon is a far cry from today's proclamation of grace justifying everything one does.                                                                                                                 transcript & guide  MP3   stream < 22 min 

Yosef bar Naba, "The Epistle of Barnabas": To the Children of Love and Peace [PDF] : The Epistle of Barnabas is included in the earliest versions of the New Covenant . It is Hebraic in character and explains several hidden meanings of the Hebrew Scriptures, including the higher meaning of sacrifices, food ordinances, the 8 day prophetic week and what it really means to be a a follower of Yahshua the Messiah.                                                     Buy the paperback here (Greek & English)      annotated text [PDF]    audio stream  

The Torah of Zillai, "The Teachings of Sylvanus": This is a letter from Silas (Zillai) to his son, bar Zillai, which attempts to dissuade the younger man from joining with the zealots.  The text is specific enough to convey the message but general enough to be of no threat to establishment powers.      annotated text     stream  

Kata Mattyah: The Good News According to Matthew.  This is a NEW TRANSLATION based on the Codex Sinaiticus.  It is very useful for gaining a command of the biblical Hebrew language.  Many common transliterated Hebrew words replace their English counterparts so that the student progressing through this version will gain a basic Hebrew vocabulary.

The Letter of the Smyrnaeans of The Martyrdom of Polycarp. We write to you, brothers, an account of what befell those that suffered martyrdom and especially the blessed Polycarp, who endured the persecution, having set his seal on it by his martyrdom. For nearly all the previous events came to pass so that the Master might show us once more an example of martyrdom that is conformable to the Evangel.

Newly Discovered Resources Bearing Upon the Nazoreans

Ancient Nazarene Commentaries on Isaiah conserved by Jerome - Jerome (347 – 440 AD) was an ecclesiastical historian best known for his many translations of scripture into Latin, including his best-known work, the Vulgate.  He may well have been in contact with the ancient sect of the Nazarenes, which he speaks of in favorable terms, and we suppose the following commentaries proceeded from common discourse with them.  If so, these commentaries may well be one of the most important and most neglected sources of Nazarene lore in our possession. 

The Hazon Balaam, or Balaam / Bilam in the Tell Deir 'Alla Inscription - The Deir 'Alla Inscription (or Bala'am Son of Be'or Inscription) was the product of a 1967 excavation in Deir 'AllaJordan. The excavation revealed a many-chambered structure that had also been destroyed by earthquake, during the Persian period at the site, on the wall of which was written a previously unknown prophecy by the seer and prophet Bala'am, son of Be'or.

The Hazon Gabriel, or Revelation of Gabriel, the "stone" Dead Sea Scroll - Scriptural scholars are abuzz over a stone tablet that is said to bear previously unknown prophecies about a Jewish messiah who would rise from the dead in three days. But there are far more questions than answers about the tablet, which some have suggested could represent "a new Dead Sea Scroll in stone."

Historical Documents Showing That The Rabbis destroyed the Aramaic and Hebrew New Testaments, thus explaining why YHWH's Full Name is no longer included except in the conjugated Aramaic form of MAR-YAH, or Master YAH, or Adon-Yah.

The Shocking True Story Behind the “Jesus Family Tomb” - The Discovery Channel recently aired “The Lost Tomb of Jesus.” The filmmakers claim with perfectly certainty that they have found the tomb of the entire family of Jesus, that they had his DNA, that Mary Magdalene is in there, and a boy, "Little Jude." Although religious folks are burning books, "The Family Tomb" has a great deal of information to add to our quest for the historical Yahushua ben YHWH.

Here is the original version Hebrew technical terms and True Names intact.

Here is a summarized version without the Hebrew or technical terms.

York 1910 and White 1920 silver cornets

I rebuild, restore & repair brass and silver musical instruments. The proceeds of sales go for our occupational rehabilitation ministry. Pictured are 1910 White and 1920 York silver cornets, which came to me each in very poor condition.  Each horn was chemically cleaned, de-tarnished, de-dented, re-soldered, padded and corked, with valves lapped and lubricated. They are ready as vintage instruments to go back into service, along with many more beauties.  Do you have instruments you no longer use - any make, model, condition or type?  We can put them to use in ministry.  Perhaps you are a player or need a used instrument.  Maybe I can help. Call (801) 850 6901 and leave me a message or use the contact form.  Jackson Snyder
