It is known, from reading our N.T. that Yashua was sent to those of the house of Israel. James, the author of the book of James, wrote his letter to the 12 tribes that were spread out through the countries. His words were, “To the 12 tribes who were spread abroad. GREETINGS.”
Here are a few scriptures that prove James knew where these people were, and what they were doing. Chapter 2 verse 1. They heard the word of Yashua. 2:2 They had meetings. 2:19 They beleived that Mighty One (GOD) is ONE. 3:13 There were those who were wise and understanding among them. 4:1 They fought and warred amongst themselves. 5:17 Elijah is the prophet mentioned here because they would remember that he was sent to confront king Ahab. This king was the ruler over the Israelites, but not the Jews. Yashua and James, knew where all of the 12 tribes were.
So, about the book of Hebrews. Scholars spend a lot of time trying to figure out who the author of the book was. Yet, their time should be spent in doing more scripture reading. Many scholars will throw out the Septuagint. If they do that, then they need also to take out the book of Hebrews. Hebrews ONLY quotes from the Septuagint, LXX.
The KJV comes from The Latin Vulgate, and the Textus Receptus, or the Received Text. The Hebrew used was the Masoretic Text that was completed on or around 900 A.D. It was completed by the Masorite scribes who wanted to have a Hebrew translation. They wanted to get away from the LXX because Christians were using to show that the prophesies of the Messiah were fulfilled in Yashua.
They created their own Hebrew translation, changing some of the prophesies of Yashua the Messiah. The Maorites were afraid of two things. The first, their language. The second, the Messiah. They were worried that with the introduction of the Greek, the beautiful language of Hebrew would dissapear. This is the reason for the vowl points on the letters.
All throughout history, no vowl points were needed. It was not until these Masorites decided to make them. These Maorites had to bring back those “lost” to Christianity’s grip. So, that caused a scripture to be changed, and what caused millions of people throughout history, and today, to believe a lie.
The most important scripture in the entire bible, that these Masorites changed, was Psalm 40. This was the prophesy of the messiah. In verses 6-8, using the translations we have today, we read, ” sacrifice and offering you did not desire, you have opened my ears, you have not reqired burnt offering and sin offering. Then, I said, Look, I come, in the volume of the book written of me. I delight to do thy will, O my Mighty One, yes, your law within my heart.”
In the book of Hebrews, these verses are quoted. 10:5-7 But not out of the Masoretic Text, (MT) because it was not finished until 900 A.D. Rather, it was taken out of the LXX. ”Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but you have prepared a body for me, in burnt offerings and for sin you have had no pleasure. Then I said, Look, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me) to do your will, O my Mighty One.”
It is not hard to see the dofferences in these passages. So, once the evil Messiah denying text is removed, (MT) we will see that the septuigint is thecorrect translation. We need to see the bias of the scribes of the MT. The KJV brought many people out of darkness into light, now it is time to step out of the light and shine as stars of heaven. Really the only way of doing this is by getting away from the KJV, and getting aquainted will the LXX.
