Was His name Yeshua, Yahshua, or Yahushua? Dr. Brown sets the record straight here.

His name is YAHUAH (YHUH) His Son Name is YAHUSAH - Where did this come from? What is the real name of God The Father? Jesus name is spelt Yashua? Right?

The Passover event described in the Bible is a fiction. That alone proves the Bible is what it is, astrotheology. The Christians and the Jews owe the Egyptian people a huge apology for accusing them of holding an entire people group as slaves for centuries. But the dignity of Egypt and its people are of no concern to Bible believers. Bible believers don't care about anything other than protecting their religion at any cost. So they will continue to promote this horrible lie in the face of the facts. Once again the truth denialists will lie top protect their evil religion. This is what we get when people get their ideas about morals and ethics out of the most immoral book ever written.

Of course my comments have been censored now. No one has more to fear from the truth than Bible believers.

@ Fred...Thanks for the good laugh. No person in their right mind who believed this life was all there was would waste their life away arguing with people that there is no God—they would be out living it up while they could. If you honestly don't care that people deny reality, why are you wasting your life away arguing with people that there is no God? The truth is that you aren't being honest. The truth is that you DO care. The truth is that it REALLY irritates you that there are people who believe in God. That's why you keep wasting your life away commenting on here. If you honestly didn't care, you'd just go away. In all my years of debating atheists I've never heard such ridiculous explanations and arguments as yours. Most at least make some measure of sense. What is the source for all your off the wall, goofy ideas anyway? Marijuana? Seriously Fred, even the devil makes more sense than you do.

Rev. Randy K., You are incorrect. I know much more about the Bible than you do. Do you know why Moses was angry when he saw the golden calf? The calf represents Taurus the Bull and Moses represents the new astrological age of Aries, the Ram. This is why Jews still blow the ram's horn. Any honest rabbi will tell you this stuff is all about the stars, sun and moon, not real people. Also since the Passover event is a complete fiction and that alone is enough to know better than to believe anything Christian apologists write. They did not understand the have turned into a sacred idol - in direct defiance of the Ten Commandments. Christianity is the oldest protection racket there is. It preys on the widely held fears of people and offers a solution to them it clearly does not have. The only reason it survives is because the dead cannot come back and demand a refund. No Passover - no dice. That's just the way it is. Deny reality. I don't care.

@ Fred...It is quite obvious that you haven't done any research yourself. You are only parroting what you have read and heard what other atheists have said. If you sincerely want to know the truth Fred, I would encourage you to read a book called, "The Case For Christ," by Lee Strobel. Lee has a Master of Studies in Law degree from Yale Law School. He was an award-winning investigative journalist for the Chicago Tribune for thirteen years. He was also and outspoken atheist. So, when his wife became a born-again Christian he was so outraged that took time off from work (over a year) to do the research to PROVE Christianity, Jesus, and the Bible were all shams. Guess what? After more than a year of traveling the country and doing extensive research and questioning many experts, he was faced with many undeniable facts. The question was then, "What was he going to do with all the evidence?"

We do know Herod did not order the slaughter of innocent children. That piece of fiction is part of so many ancient stories like Oedipus Rex or King Sargon the story that the Bible plagiarized for its stories about Moses.

@ Fred, In a word, NO. Do you know, for a fact, when Herod the Great died? I can go to a Library, and find claims of 'time frames' ranging from 4 or even 5 BC through to A.D. 1 I guess, Fred, that since no one knows in what year it happened? And because no one knows or who attested to it, Herod's a fake too... Do you know, for a fact, when Herod the Great died?

Well the problem is the resurrection of Jesus is supposed to be the best attested event in history. What year did it happen? No one knows. Who attested to it? No eyewitnesses. So the claim that resurrection of Jesus is the best attested event in history is absolutely false. So it doesn't matter what the Jewish name for Jesus is if he never existed. See what I mean?

Ah yes, @ Yahgirl3, the great "Hebrew Roots Movement" (HRM), debacle, ermm I mean debate, and the 'One True Name' of Messiah's... at last count, I had a casual list of 27 variants of, or for, Yeshua, each of which touted as 'the one and only real way' to spell / pronounce His name. This video by Dr. Brown (who is of Jewish ancestry, I believe) is indeed good! Thank you, Dr. Brown. @ Fred Weiss - Wow, that is perhaps one of the most blatant plagiarisms I've seen in not only my adult, but in fact in my entire, life! The least one could do, either at the very least, try and re-word, if original thought cannot be mustered. Or, cite your sources.

@ Fred...If I were foolish enough to believe that there was no God, and consequently no afterlife, I would not be so foolish as to waste what little time I had left on this earth arguing with people who believe in God that there is no God. P.S. The least you could do Fred is to make a comment that is relevant to the article you are commenting on.

@Fred Considering you call Christians "Bible thumpers" at https://thechurchoftruth.org/synoptic-gospels-not-writen-by-matt-mark-luke-or-john/ I hardly doubt you seriously care what anyone says. Your mind is made up. When I first read your comments I instantly thought of the Jesus Seminar and was sure it was copy and paste from The Five Gospels-which it still may be. We are rehashing the conclusions found by the far left theologians from the 80s. Argue all you want for the hypothetical Q...it's just that. Never mind that, much of history is passed on long after the event(s) via oral history and sketchy sources. The "Father of Modern History" often got his information wrong, received it from people in other languages, received it from acquaintances, descendants, etc. The majority of ancient history is passed onto us from Christians from various decades. The same 'history' you trust to make your arguments. I laugh when people undermine the history of the Bible and how it cannot be trusted because of "x." Yet, the same people unquestionably trust "science" and the "secular historians," without them ever having actually done the research on the primary sources, the fossils, the DNA, carbon dating. "Those silly Christians will trust anyone...ha! I won't fall for that!" #sarcasm

Seventy six percent of Mark is reproduced almost word-for-word in both Matthew and Luke. An additional 18% of Mark is reproduced in Matthew but not in Luke, and an further 3% of Mark is in Luke but not in Matthew. This means that 97% of Mark is reproduced in Matthew and/or Luke. Matthew contains 606 of Mark’s 661 verses. Luke contains 320 of Mark’s 661 verses. Of the 55 verses of Mark which Matthew does not reproduce, Luke reproduces 31; therefore there are only 24 verses in all of Mark not reproduced somewhere in Matthew or Luke. So do we have any eyewitnesses to anything in the gospels?
