11 May 7, Whatever the Lord has commanded us to perform, we ought to do in accordance with the appointed seasons. He commanded the offerings and services to be performed conscientiously and not at random or without order, but at appointed seasons and hours.

12 May 7, Since Clement goes on to refer to the high priests, the priests, and the Levites, it is clear that the appointed seasons which he regards as essential must be those of the Levitical Law.

13 May 7, If words have any meaning at all, a Liturgical Year of the Hebrew type must have been well established in Rome and Corinth by the 90's. Page 41

14 May 7, There is no reason to think that there ever was a form of Christianity anywhere which dispensed with this Calendar. Page 43

18 May 7, The International Critical Commentary The meaning of the words is clear. Christ did not come to overthrow the authority of the Mosaic Law, which was to be eternally binding upon the hearts and consciences of men.

19 May 7, The International Critical Commentary So long as the world lasted its authority was to be permanent. Commentators have exhausted their ingenuity in attempts to explain away this passage, but its meaning is too clear to be misunderstood.

42 May 7, W hat is Torah?

43 May 7, Torah tr;AtB. The word Torah means to shoot an arrow or to hit the mark. My Position: Torah can be understood as the Operating Manual for Planet Earth.

44 May 7, Torah tr;AtB. General Sense: Instruction about how to live rightly before God and with mankind. Concerning our observance of the Torah, we believe it is a reflection of His Divine Nature resident within us.

45 May 7, Torah tr;AtB. We dont observe it because it is the correct thing to do (although it is). We observe it because it is now in our changed nature to do so, just as the prophets predicted; Jeremiah 31, Ezekiel 11 and 36. Highlights of Psalms 19:7-12

46 May 7, Psalm 19:7-12 The instructions of our Heavenly Father are complete, no missing parts and provide whats needed to return a soul who has gone astray. The witness of Yahweh is faithful and enduring, making wise the simple.

47 May 7, Psalm 19:7-12 His precepts are equitable and just, rejoicing the heart. The terms of the covenant between Him and myself are without any impurities.

48 May 7, Psalm 19:7-12 Reverencing Yahweh has a cleansing effect that endures. His judicial requirements are faithful into perpetuity.

49 May 7, Psalm 19:7-12 More to be desired than gold… And in observing them, there is great reward. Who can discern wandering off the straight and narrow path without them.

50 May 7, The Most Highs Perspective Deuteronomy 4:6-8… Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.

51 May 7, The Most Highs Perspective Deuteronomy 4:6-8… For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as Yahweh our Elohim is in all things that we call upon Him for?

52 May 7, The Most Highs Perspective Deuteronomy 4:6-8… And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law (Torah), which I set before you this day?

53 May 7, Pauls Perspective - II Timothy 3:15 And that from a child thou hast known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Yeshua the Messiah.

54 May 7, Pauls Perspective - II Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is God breathed and is profitable for learning… Teaching… (What is right) Reproof… (What is not right) Correction… (How to get it right) Instruction in right-living (How to keep it right)

55 May 7, In the Millennial Kingdom… This is the Torah that all the people in the entire world will keep. If ruling and reigning = enforcing…?

57 May 7, vidence from History If we are on point with our conclusions so far, history should be able to substantiate it.

62 May 7,

63 May 7,

64 May 7, Sacrifices and the Levites

65 May 7,

66 May 7, Ignatius to the Magnesians 8.1 Be not seduced by strange doctrines nor by antiquated fables, which are profitless. 8.2 For if even unto this day we live according to the manner of Judaic concepts, we admit that we have not received grace: for the Godly prophets lived the way Yeshua did.

67 May 7, Ignatius to the Magnesians 9.1 If then those who had walked in ancient practices attained unto newness of hope, no longer Judaically keeping Sabbaths but keeping them according to how our Lord kept them...

68 May 7, Ignatius to the Magnesians …let every one of you keep the Sabbath after a spiritual manner, rejoicing in meditation on the law.... (longer recension)

69 May 7, Two quotes

70 May 7, Eusebius …after the tyrant's death, he [John] returned from the isle of Patmos to Ephesus, he went upon their invitation to the neighboring territories of the Gentiles, to appoint bishops in some places, in other places to set in order whole churches, elsewhere to choose to the ministry some one of those that were pointed out by the Spirit...

71 May 7, Eusebius Eusebius. Church History, Book III, Chapter 23. Translated by the Rev. Arthur Cushman McGiffert. Excerpted from Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, Series Two, Volume 1. Edited by Philip Schaff and Henry Wace. American Edition, Online Edition Copyright © 2004 by K. Knight.

72 May 7, Iraeneaus …the Church in Ephesus, founded by Paul, and having John remaining among them permanently…, is a true witness … of the Apostles. Irenaeus. Adversus Haereses. Book III, Chapter 3, Verse 4, p. 416

73 May 7, Do away with anything Jewish.

74 May 7, Follow the false messiah or treason.

75 May 7,

76 May 7, The Jewish Bishops The first fifteen bishops of Jerusalem were all circumcised Jews; and the congregation over which they presided united the law of Moses with the doctrine of Christ. It was natural that the primitive tradition of a church which was founded only forty days after the death of Christ, and was governed almost as many years under the immediate inspection of his apostle, should be received as the standard of orthodoxy.

77 May 7, The Jewish Bishops It has been remarked that the virgin purity of the church was never violated by schism or heresy before the reign of Trajan or Hadrian, about one hundred years after the death of Christ. Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Volume I, Chapter XV, Section I. ca Gibbon E.

78 May 7, The Jewish Bishops The Jewish Christians, at least in Palestine, conformed as closely as possible to the venerable forms of the cultus of their fathers, which in truth were divinely ordained, and were an expressive type of the Christian worship.

79 May 7, The Jewish Bishops So far as we know, they scrupulously observed the Sabbath, the annual Jewish feasts, the hours of daily prayer, and the whole Mosaic ritual. History of the Christian Church, Chapter 9. Oak Harbor, WA: Logos Research Systems, Inc by Philip Schaff

80 May 7,

81 May 7, The Gentile Bishops Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire They elected Marcus for their bishop, a prelate of the race of the Gentiles, and most probably a native either of Italy or of some of the Latin provinces.

82 May 7, The Gentile Bishops At his persuasion the most considerable part of the congregation renounced the Mosaic law, in the practice of which they had persevered above a century. By this sacrifice of their habits and prejudices they purchased a free admission into the colony of Hadrian.

83 May 7, The Gentile Bishops [Prior to this action], the Jewish Bishops insisted on the literal observance of the Law.

84 May 7, The Gentile Bishops Eusebius. Church History, Book IV, Chapter 5, Translated by Arthur Cushman McGiffert. Excerpted from Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, Series Two, Volume 1. Edited by Philip Schaff and Henry Wace. American Edition, Online Edition Copyright © 2004 by K. Knight

85 May 7, The Gentile Bishops But I have learned this much from writings, that until the siege of the Jews, which took place under Adrian, there were fifteen bishops in succession there, all of whom are said to have been of Hebrew descent.

86 May 7, The Gentile Bishops They received the knowledge of Christ in purity, so that they were approved by those who were able to judge of such matters, and were deemed worthy of the episcopate.

87 May 7,

88 May 7, Polycarp and Paul Polycarp wrote an epistle to the Philippians where he spoke in the most glowing and excellent terms concerning Paul.

89 May 7, Polycarp vs Anicetus 150 c.e. And when the blessed Polycarp was at Rome in the time of Anicetus [approx. 150+], and they disagreed a little about certain other things [besides when to observe Passover], they immediately made peace with one another, not caring to quarrel over this matter.

90 May 7, Polycarp vs Anicetus 150 c.e. For Anicetus could not persuade Polycarp to stop observing what he had always observed with John the disciple of our Lord, and the other apostles with whom he had associated;

91 May 7, Polycarp vs Anicetus 150 c.e. And Polycarp couldnt persuade Anicetus to observe it as he (Anicetus) said that he ought to follow the customs of the presbyters that had preceded him [no matter what the Apostles taught and handed down].

92 May 7, Can we date this? Epiphanius -... the controversy arose after the exodus of the bishops of the circumcision (135) and it has continued until our time ( ).

93 May 7, Epiphanius He then makes reference to the 15 bishops. They kept the 14 th day of the first month as also found in the Apostolic Constitutions.

94 May 7, Epiphanius He then quotes the following rule found in the A.C. You [Gentile Christians] ought to celebrate Passover at the same time as your brethren who from the circumcision have entered the church.

95 May 7,

96 May 7,

97 May 7, Polycrates: Background Presided over a synod of Asiatic bishops to codify the Roman Easter because a divergent method existed. Bishop Victor of Rome requested this meeting…

98 May 7, Polycrates - The Letter [Concerning Passover] We scrupulously observe the exact day; neither adding, nor taking away.

99 May 7, Polycrates - The Letter For in Asia also great lights have fallen asleep. Among these are the Apostles Philip and John, Polycarp, and others.

100 May 7, Polycrates - The Letter All these observed the 14 th day of the Month, in accordance with the Gospel, deviating in no respect, but following the rule of faith.

101 May 7, Polycrates - The Letter For seven of my relatives were bishops; and I am the eighth.

102 May 7, Polycrates - The Letter And my relatives ALWAYS observed the day when the people put away the leaven.

103 May 7, Polycrates - The Letter I have met with the brethren throughout the world, and have gone through every Holy Scripture.

104 May 7, Polycrates - The Letter I could mention the bishops who were present, whom I summoned at your desire; whose names […] would constitute a great multitude. And they gave their… UNANIMOUS consent to the letter.

105 May 7, Polycrates - The Letter I am not frightened at the things which are said to terrify us. For those who are greater than I have said, We ought to obey God rather than men.

106 May 7, Polycrates: Summary Claims Follower of teachings of the Apostles Faithful to teachings of the Gospel (which includes the Torah) Obeying Gods Word was more important than following a mans tradition The evidence of the Biblical imprint passed down from the Jerusalem assembly does not stop with Polycrates

107 May 7, (Insert) The Jerusalem Imprint Bardesane ( ) My disciples sanctify Sunday and not Saturday and they do not practice circumcision as the Christians in Judea. From Bagatti, LEglise, pp. 8,9

108 May 7, What was Victors Decision Excommunicate Them who was on Victors side Iraeneaus ( who was on Victors side ) wrote to Victor and rebuked him. So then what did Victor do?

109 May 7,

110 May 7,

111 May 7, This Picture Has Emerged Apostles setup feast calendar Col 2, 1Cor 5 Mark = Deut. 18:18-19 – w/Torah Readings Amidah Clement in Rome Bar Chovas revolt No more Jewish leadership in Jerusalem church which leads to… Removal of Torah Observance and Power Transfer to Rome

112 May 7, The Jewish Bishops (again) They received the knowledge of Christ in purity, so that they were approved by those who were able to judge of such matters, and were deemed worthy of the episcopate.

113 May 7, Where are we? Galatians 4 & 5, Romans 10, Colossians 2, and others need to have scraped away the buildup of flawed analyses. Matthew 7 The road traveled and Luke 13 the strait gate.

114 May 7, Where are we? Agwni,zesqe Friburg: contend for a prize, make every effort, try very hard, do one's very best. A Literal for the public games What does the rest of this verse say?

115 May 7, Where are we? Agwni,zesqe Friburg: contend for a prize, make every effort, try very hard, do one's very best.

116 May 7, Where are we? Agwni,zesqe to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and will not be able.

117 May 7, Where are we? That verse is Luke 13:24 23 Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, 24 Agwni,zesqe to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and will not be able. Why will they not be able?

118 May 7, Where are we? Luke 13:27 But He shall say, I tell you, I do not know you, where you are from. Depart from me, all ye workers of ( avdiki,aj ) iniquity. [Fri] (1) as disregard for divine law, correlated with avnomi,a.

119 May 7, The Road Traveled - Matthew 7:21-23 Strait gate Matthew 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in there at: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

120 May 7, The Road Traveled - Matthew 7: Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. John 14:24 The one who DOES NOT KEEP my instructions continues to not love me; And the instruction which you hear IS NOT MINE, but the Fathers who sent me.

121 May 7, The Road Traveled - Matthew 7: Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? They are rejected for one reason… 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity ( anomos ).

122 May 7, The Road Traveled - Matthew 7:21-23 Friberg, that which is contrary to what the law requires. 2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves to determine if you are in the faith… The saints keep the commandments of God and possess the witness of Yeshua Revelation 12:17, 14:12 How? Check out your road!
