Scientists strive to save dying spoken language of Jesus

image from ts2.mm.bing.netScientists from England are trying to preserve the  language spoken by Jesus and tied to Hebrew and Arabic. The language is called Aramaic. Aramaic is one of the Semitic languages, an important group of languages known almost from the beginning of human history and including also Arabic, Hebrew, Ethiopic, and Akkadian (ancient Babylonian and Assyrian). It is particularly closely related to Hebrew, and was written in a variety of alphabetic scripts. (What is usually called "Hebrew" script is actually an Aramaic script.)
0ur first glimpse of Aramaic comes from a small number of ancient royal inscriptions from almost three thousand years ago (900-700 B.C.E.). Dedications to the gods, international treaties, and memorial stelae reveal to us the history of the first small Aramean kingdoms, in the territories of modern Syria and Southeast Turkey, living under the shadow of the rising Assyrian empire.

­Professor of linguistics at the University of Cambridge, Geoffrey Khan, has begun a quest to record the ancient language that’s been around for three thousand years before it finally disappears.

Stress this! The best cure ever for anxiety

By Joe Kovacs


image from i0.wp.comWe live in a frantic, pressure-packed world full of trouble.

Everything seems to be happening at a faster pace than ever, and millions of Americans are now suffering from stress, anxiety and sometimes even depression because of it.

The news itself confirms it. A recent story from U.S. News and World Report blared the headline, "Stress Is Keeping Americans Up at Night."

It has the results of a survey by Bankrate.com indicating a stunning 69 percent of Americans say they occasionally lose sleep due to something they're worried about. Yes, about seven in every 10 people.

The top fret-maker for many people is relationships, with 41 percent in the survey saying it keeps them up at night. A close second at 36 percent was financial concerns preventing people from plunging into a good night's sleep.

After relationships and money concerns, 30 percent of people say work stresses them out, followed by 28 percent blaming health, and 14 percent indicating politics was causing their insomnia.

The research indicates issues surrounding the family are especially worrisome, as they're "the biggest source of stress among people who lose sleep because they're up thinking about their relationships."

COMEY WAS A COMMIE?

Why Not? Brennan was!

1“In college, I was left of center,” explained James Comey in an interview with New York magazine, “and through a gradual process I found myself more comfortable with a lot of the ideas and approaches the Republicans were using.” Comey voted for Jimmy Carter in 1980, but says that four years later, in 1984, “I voted for Reagan – I’d moved from communist to whatever I am now. I’m not even sure how to characterize myself politically. Maybe at some point, I’ll have to figure it out.”

HYPOCRITES! HYPOCRITES! HYPOCRITES!

By Mike Exton

Many liberals have been bashing Donald Trump and his followers for wanting to build a wall at the Mexican border (in order to keep out drug-traffickers and ILLEGAL aliens–including Muslim terrorists)—even going so far as to label Trump and all his followers as racists and even Nazis. And yet their champions (Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama) voted for the construction of a wall along the Mexican border in 2006! That’s right, they voted in favor of building such a wall! And that wall (at least part of it) has already been built (a barrier stretching about 670 miles — with about 700 more miles in the plan).

Yes, you have a High Priest!



Yes, you have a High Priest!


      He’s pleading your case right now before the God of heaven. You are so fortunate. There are millions who don’t know he is ministering for them, and many who don’t care, but you are so blessed.

      Your High Priest is the only being in the entire universe who really knows the Ancient of Days (Matt 11:27), the Judge now deciding your case in the court of heaven. But your Advocate is well able to defend you before the prosecution, who accuses you day and night before the deliberating jury. Your Mediator has secured an acquittal acceptable to the Judge and jury. But there are conditions. It was arranged with the stipulation of a plea bargain. You must agree to surrender your old life and accept a transformation, free if you accept it. Your High Priest offers you a substitute—his own life in place of yours. This life was the life he lived without a trace of error or imperfection by allowing the life of his Father to live in him. Now he offers to live in you and give you the same perfect error-free life. So simple. So powerful. So wonderful.

      Your High Priest became the High Priest for this world 20 centuries ago after dying for every person that ever lived and will ever live. Because he lived a perfect life without one selfish act or thought, his Father, the Sovereign of the universe, restored his life and inaugurated him as High Priest for the human race. For over 18 centuries he has been representing all who come to him, obtaining their pardon, and dispensing his powerful, victorious life to all who desire it.

      The Bible has a lot to say about your High Priest. The book of Hebrews assures us that “we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God” Hebrews 4:14. Jesus, the Son of God, is your great High Priest. He is now in heaven after living a life here on earth as the Son of man that he might “be touched with the feeling of our infirmities” and “tempted in all points like as we are” Heb 4:15. This was “in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death”, his Father. Hebrews 5:7.

      But there was no other way. Only one being in all the universe could redeem mankind: one who was equal with God (Phil 2:6) and equal with Man, the second Adam (1Cor 15:45). The Word of God, who proceeded forth from God (John 8:42), who came out from God (John 16:27,28; 17:8) was in the form of God (Phil 2:6) because God was his Father (John 5:18) and he was the Son of God.

Plagues of Egypt: Proved?

A new Category we started named "the Bible As History" starts today!  Read actual scientific and historical proof of the accuracy of the Bible!  It's not a fairy tale!

Plagues of Egypt: Proved?

A document describing Egypt’s sudden downfall is suspiciously similar to the Exodus account.
The Ipuwer Papyrus (c. 13th century BCE), on display at the Dutch National Museum of Antiquities in Leiden.

To many, the biblical account of the 10 plagues and the Exodus is simply too fantastical to be believed—pure legend found only within the pages of the Bible, Israelite propaganda. But what if it isn’t? What if there was an Egyptian eyewitness account of the divine punishment and suffering described in the Bible?
