THE ANTICHRIST, CHRISTIANITY, and REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY (Part 10)

   Replacing the Hebrew Language with Greek

greekaplhabet

We Gentiles have been deceived into believing that the entire New Testament was written in koine Greek, whereas there is concrete evidence that Matthew documented his gospel account in Hebrew. For instance, Papias bishop of Hierapolis (150 A.D) said: “Matthew put down the words of the Lord in the Hebrew language and others have translated them, each as best he could.”

  • Irenaeus (120-202 A.D) said: “Matthew indeed produced his Gospel written among the Hebrews in their own dialect.”
  • Origen (225 A.D.)  wrote, “The first Gospel composed in the Hebrew language, was written by Matthew…for those who came to faith from Judaism.”
  • Epiphanius of Salamis (310–403) wrote: they [Nazarenes, early Jewish disciples] have the Gospel according to Matthew in its entirety in Hebrew. For it is clear that they still preserve this as it was originally writ- ten, in the Hebrew alphabet. {Epiphanius; Panarion 29-Against Nazoraeans.}
  • Eusebius, (325 A.D.) quoted Papias of Hierapolis: Matthew had first preached to the Hebrews, and when he was about to go to others also, he transmitted his Gospel in writing in his native language” (Ecclesiastical History III 24, 6).
  • Jerome (347- 420) in his “De Viris Illustribus” wrote: Mathew, also called Levi, apostle and aforetime publican, composed a gospel of Christ at first published inJudea in Hebrew for the sake of those of the circumcision who believed, but this was afterwards translated into Greek though by what author is uncertain.  The Hebrew itself has been preserved until the present day in the library at Caesarea which Pamphilus so diligently gathered.  I have also had the opportunity of having the volume described to me by the Nazarenes of Beroea, a city of Syria, who use it.  In this it is to be noted that wherever the Evangelist, whether on his own account or in the person of our Lord the Savior quotes the testimony of the Old Testament he does not follow the authority of the translators of the Septuagint but the Hebrew. Wherefore these two forms exist Out of Egypt have I called my son, and for he shall be called a Nazarene. 

These pieces of information are important, since the gospel was written and documented in the Hebrew way of thinking they should be studied and translated the same so that the reader will achieve an accurate understanding of what the writer desires to communicate. Making the gospel seem as if it were written and documented in Greek, Latin, or English will change the intended message. To be continued…

  1. This is a very interesting and inciting series. The problem with people who claim to love God so much and who claim to want to learn the truth wont respond to teachings like this unless you’re asking them for money or willing to lie to them and call it prophesy!

  2. Very informative writing that has indeed taught me something. I find it interesting that most people would rather join your blog to defend false prophets instead of contributing to your other articles as well. It’s really sad that people have been captivated by lies and deception of false teachers/prophets and refuse to indulge in teachings of truth when it is made available FOR FREE on forums like this. May God continue to bless your efforts.
