Aramaic Video – May be the answers you been waiting for?

The Bible was written in verse so it would not be changed.

A poem cannot be changed without changing its meaning. Even if one word is replaced with another, it will not mean the same. Of course, I’m talking of masterfully written verse, such as we find in the Scriptures.
Therefore, when you have a translation of the Old Testament Scriptures from the Ancient Aramaic (or Ancient Hebrew), the poetic structure is going to be lost, because the translators will attempt to capture the meaning and not reproduce the rhyme or the meter of the poetry. Such is the case with the Greek and Latin translations; they have not retained the poetic structure of the verses.
But why were the Scriptures recorded in verse if they were to be translated and used by all nations and tongues? I believe they were recorded in verse so as to preserve the exact meanings of the doctrines and oracles recorded by the inspired writers.
The Western translators say that the Old Testament Scriptures were recorded in verse — that’s why we quote chapter and verse — and that they were written in Hebrew; but why do they say that the New Testament was originated in Greek? Don’t they know that the New Testament is also written in verse? Well, if they knew that, why isn’t the Greek New Testament written in verse? As it stands, the Greek and Latin New Testaments are not in verse; their texts have no rhyme or meter like the Ancient Aramaic does!
For example, the Gospel of John, in its entirety, is one poem. It is a beautifully written poem. How can it be said that the New Testament was not originated in the Ancient Aramaic language when it is all in verse? The Lord Himself quoted the Book of Isaiah and Jeremiah, and they are both complete poems from the first word to the last. The Lord Himself delivered all His teachings in perfect verse. His words are preserved in verse only in the Ancient Aramaic. How can the Western Churches claim that the New Testament was originated in Greek?
Are they going to deny that the New Testament was written in verse? Are they going to say that the word “verse” implies only that the text is divided into sentences, which are simply numbered for easy reference? Then why does the Ancient Aramaic all rhyme and have meter?
No, in fact, all the Scriptures were originated in the Ancient Aramaic language, and that was by design, so that later generations and all the nations of the world would never be able to alter a single word of truth.
To prove this, I have made this video commentary on the Gospel of John, using verses 6 through 14 of the Gospel of John.

High Hopes for Kids Development Center Story

Microsoft Partner

The Microsoft partner community is a special group of truly invested businesses and professionals. We see this commitment to global good every day.  We delight in sharing the stories of a few of our partners who are making a difference in the world. Today we are sharing the amazing work of ImageQuest and their support of the non-profit organization, High Hopes for Kids Development Center.

We spoke with Co-Founder, President, and CEO of ImageQuest, Milton Bartley, about their philanthropy projects and the inspiration behind the work that they do.

Delivering Quality of Life

High Hopes Development Center provides a pediatric therapy clinic and inclusive preschool to families in Tennessee. The mission of the founders of the non-profit was to create a place that would meet the needs of families with children who had special needs or chronic diseases. The center consists of a therapy clinic that helps children and youth from birth to 21 years achieve success in all areas of their daily lives through physical, occupational, speech and feeding therapies. Their preschool has a special inclusive blend of children both with and without special needs in a developmentally appropriate setting.

Milton says that ImageQuest got involved with High Hopes for Kids almost a decade ago when after providing some services to the non-profit they came to learn more about the organization. As Milton learned more about High Hopes, he got more involved in fundraising and some other volunteer efforts. Inevitably, ImageQuest got to the point where they provide High Hopes with their critical IT services completely pro bono.

Supporting the Cause

Over the years, ImageQuest has provided all the necessary managed services, Office 365 licensing and communication tools, new computers, a new server, even video monitoring systems for classroom and playground security. They helped the organization apply and get grants for their equipment and, if they were unable to win the grant, the equipment was donated to the organization. Through their IT services and frequent support in fundraising efforts, ImageQuest has become an important part of the success of High Hopes for Kids.

The Inspiration Behind the Work

Milton said that the inspiration for ImageQuests™ support of the High Hopes organization is likely similar to many other benefactors. He said, It all started with a visit. When you go on site to the facility and you see the work that they’re doing, on both the therapy side as well as the education, you can come away from that not touched by the experience. I was just blown away. He was so affected by the work that High Hopes does every day to help special needs children and their families live a more enriched and fulfilling life, he knew that he needed to help in the best ways he could.

The Importance of Philanthropy from a Business Perspective

Milton says that the philanthropy ImageQuest does is important from a personal and a business perspective for a couple of reasons. Beyond simple altruism, he says that customers expect businesses to be involved in the community, but it’s easy for that support to be spread too thin. Milton explained,  “As a business, you get asked by many organizations to participate, and what I learned early on is that if I support every cause that asks, I’m giving very little and I don’t see the impact. Because of that, we made the decision that we would focus all our energies on only two charities where we knew we could make a difference.”

From an altruistic perspective, he said that its important for employees to know they work toward something beyond just a simple paycheck. Milton said, “We can see that we give back and we can see that were making a difference in our community, which makes everyone feel better about where they work.  This helps ImageQuest maintain a strong relationship with the community, helps with team morale, and even helps them with recruiting the best talent.

It makes us feel good as a business. Were doing something for society that makes what we do bigger than ourselves.

Do we appreciate the Faithful?

Hebrews 11:1-40 Aramaic Version in English

1. Faith, then, allows what is anticipated by the Hope [of the Kingdom,] He who was given to them through oaths and by the Revelation of the Invisible.
2. And through this is the testimony over the priests.
3. For it is through faith that we learn how to win eternal lives* by the Manifestation* of Allaha, and [how to discern] those things that are visible from what is Invisible.
4. It was through faith that Abel offered the sacrifice to Allaha that was more acceptable than Cain’s, and because of it he was regarded as righteous, and it was Allaha who testified regarding his offering, and because of that as Abel was on his deathbed, he was still speaking of it.
5. Through faith Enoch passed on and did not taste death, and he was not to be found, because Allaha had moved him away. For before he had passed on, there had been the testimony, that he had glorified Allaha.
6. Without faith, then, no human being can glorify Allaha. For a person is responsible for what is offered to Allaha, that is an indication of faith and a proof that those who love Him, He repays.
7. Through faith as He spoke to Noah about the unforeseen, Noah complied and built the ark to save his household, so as through Him they may deserve to live in the world and become the heirs of righteousness through faith.        
8. Through faith when Abraham was called on, he listened and went out to the country that was destined for him to receive as inheritance, and he set off not knowing where he was going.
9. It was through faith that he settled like a foreigner in a land to which he would be the heir, and he lived in the tabernacle with Isaac and Jacob, his children in the inheritance of the Kingdom.
10. For he held forth to the City that had a real foundation, a City that was crafted and built by Allaha Himself.
11. Through faith also Sarah, who was barren, received the vigor to conceive an offspring and she did not give birth in the season according to her years, because she upheld that faithful is the One Who bequeathed her the Kingdom.
12. Because of that from one who was retired through old age, were born many, like the stars in heaven and like the sand at the edge of the sea that is beyond number.
13. They all died while faithful, and all of them did not receive their lands, except from afar they saw [the Kingdom] and were overjoyed by it, and today as they are foreigners and settlers on the earth.
14. These things that are thus recorded [in Scriptures,] however, indicate that they yearned for their City.
15. And even though that they loved the City from where they had to get out, there was a season designated for them to return to it and revisit it.
16. Now, it was known then that they yearned for something better, that which was in heaven, because of which, Allaha was not embarrassed to be called their Allaha. For He did have a better city for them.
17. Through faith Abraham offered Isaac, as he was tested, raising his only child to the altar, the child he received through the Kingdom.
18. For he was Told that through Isaac your seed will be named,
19. And he reassured to himself that it is within the power of Allaha* to even raise the dead and, therefore, Isaac was given to him only figuratively.*
20. Through faith, according to what was destined, Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau.
21. Through faith as Jacob was dying, he blessed one by one all the children of Joseph, so as the head of his staff would grow and proliferate. (Joseph son of Jacob and Rachael.
22. Through faith when Joseph was dying, he reminded them of the Exodus of the children of Israel and he instructed them regarding his bones.
23. Through faith the parents of Moses hid him three months from the time he was born, to make sure that the child was well nurtured,* and they did not submit to the orders of the king.
24. Through faith when Moses was a man, he committed an offense so as not to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter,
25. And he chose for himself the tribulation of Allaha’s people and not the short season of sin’s pleasures.
26. And he viewed the Messiah’s riches that he harvested as better than his properties in Egypt, for he looked forward to his recompense.
27. Through faith he left Egypt and he did not submit to the king’s anger, and he preached as he saw fit regarding the Invisible Allaha.
28. Through faith he celebrated the Passover and sprinkled the blood so as the one who destroyed the first born heirs would not come near them.
29. Through faith they crossed the Red Sea as if it was dry land and the Egyptians were swallowed by it as they attacked them.
30. Through faith the walls of Jericho fell down, when they were circled seven days.
31. Through faith Rehab did not commit prostitution with those that did not obey when she received the spies in peace.
32. What else shall I say? For the season is short for me to comment on Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, David, Samuel and other prophets,
33. Those who through faith won over kings, performed righteous acts, received the inheritance, closed the mouth of lions,
34. Who quenched the roaring fires,* were spared the sharp edge of the sword,* were restored from illness, were mighty in battle, and were able to beat back the assaults of the enemy.
35. And they returned to the women their children from the resurrection of the dead.* And others were killed by demons and could not be spared, so that they may receive a greater resurrection.
36. Others entered through being subjected to mockery and torture, others were delivered through imprisonment and were mobbed.
37. Others were stoned, others were hacked, others died by the open sword, others went around attired in sheep and goat skin sacks, impoverished, harried and pummeled by blows.
38. No one* saw fit to give them a place in this world, and they were as though lost in the wilderness, the mountains and the caves and the crevices of the earth.
39. And all these so there may be upon them the testimony of faith; they did not receive the land,
40. Because Allaha from the beginning gazed upon the role we would play in helping them, so as they did not perish* in spite [of all our efforts.]*

Use of chemical in war spare no human resistance.

A chemical attack hit Idlib, Syria yesterday, Corlis. Witnesses shared updates from a horrific scene: young children choking and struggling to survive amidst blasts of toxic gas.

Many didn’t survive. Today, the New York Times reported that upwards of twenty children are dead, with much more injured.

Corlis, UNICEF has been on the ground in Syria since the outbreak of civil war, ensuring that lifesaving aid continues to reach every child. Please, send help direct to Syria NOW >>

Archbishop of Punjab, Pakistan agrees with Archbishop of Canterbury

“The Syrian Church represents a very ancient and a very rich strand in the great tapestry of Christian witness,” said the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams.

________________________________________________________________

His Excellency continues, “And perhaps most importantly to most people in maintaining the language that is closest to the language spoken by Our Lord himself across these centuries.

“I can still remember the experience of first hearing the psalms sung in Syriac and realizing that was probably the same kind of sound heard by Our Lord as the psalms were sung in Aramaic in his day.” (Look at the date of this article. It appears on the surface to be almost a prophecy of what the Syrians are experiencing now. Various human societies obviously are not as interested in preserving the Original Christian History as they pretend.)

Archbishop of Canterbury opens Tur Abdin exhibition at Southwark Cathedral

Giulio Paletta’s exhibition of photographs of Tur Abdin in Turkey has been opened at Southwark Cathedral by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Archbishop of Canterbury opens Tur Abdin exhibition at Southwark Cathedral

Photojournalist Giulio Paletta, who specialises in small Christian groups, has been to Tur Abdin in south-east Turkey to record the life of the Syrian Christians.

The little ancient Christian community in the mountains has been immune from Roman influence but suffered in recent upheavals which saw death or exile from beginning of the 19th century to the 1990s. The Syrian Orthodox minority now finds itself struggling with little support from the Turkish authorities.

“The Syrian Church represents a very ancient and a very rich strand in the great tapestry of Christian witness,” said the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams.

“And perhaps most importantly to most people in maintaining the language that is closest to the language spoken by Our Lord himself across these centuries.

“I can still remember the experience of first hearing the psalms sung in Syriac and realising that was probably the same kind of sound heard by Our Lord as the psalms were sung in Aramaic in his day.”

Speaking of the community’s present struggle with poverty and harassment, Dr Williams said that he wanted to express solidarity with them and pray for them.

“Turkey has an honourable tradition of tolerating and protecting religious minorities and it would be a tragedy if the next generation were to see that tradition becoming any weaker.”

The Bishop of Woolwich read out a message from the Bishop of Tur Abdin who said that it was a great comfort to have support from the British ecumenical Tur Abdin Focus Group which is staging the exhibition.

A second message was received from the Patriarch of Antioch who visited Lambeth Palace last year. The Patriarch’s representative Bishop Polycarpos also spoke.

Canon Bruce Saunders, welcoming the Archbishop, said: “Southwark Cathedral is a parish church rooted in this local community, we are the mother church of the diocese but from time to time we also behave like an English cathedral should with a national profile doing something which takes our interest beyond our own boundaries.”

Among guests at the opening were the Syrian Ambassador, diplomatic representatives from the Netherlands and Turkey, Metropolitan Seraphim of Glastonbury, the Bishop of Gibraltar in Europe, Fr Stephen Griffith who is both Anglican Chaplain in Syria and the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Apocrisiarius to the Syriac Orthodox Patriarch and the Archdeacon of Southwark.

For the Archbishop it was his second visit to Southwark in 6 days; last week he opened a new nurture room at Cathedral School in Redcross Way.

The Tur Abdin exhibition is at Southwark Cathedral until Monday 18 October.

Patience vs Endurance

What is Patience?

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, patience can be defined as the ability to accept delay or trouble calmly. This highlights that patience is a quality that is seen in individuals when they experience issues in life. For instance, when a person is wronged by another, he would be patient and forgive the other, or else he would seek revenge. In such a context, the person who displays patience is considered the better person.

Also, patience can be used in a context where an individual is tolerant of another. For example, a teacher is extremely patient with weak students. In such a situation, the word patience is not used in the sense of wrongdoing but merely as tolerance. Let us observe some more examples.

She patiently listened to the child even though he was lying.

He was running out of patience.

She patiently waited her turn in the queue.

In all the examples, the word patient is used in situations where the person is tolerant of another.

Difference Between Patience and Endurance

‘She patiently waited her turn in the queue’

What is Endurance?

The Oxford English Dictionary defined the word endurance as experiencing and surviving pain or hardship. Mostly the word endure is used for difficult situations we encounter in life. It gives the idea that the individual does not succumb to the obstacles but holds on. For example, imagine a person whose life situation is extremely negative. He has no proper place to live and a painstaking job. The individual endures his condition with the hope that he will survive and that his situation in life will be better. This gives away the idea that endurance is a bit different to patience. Let us look at some sentences.

His friends were marveled by his endurance in life.

She had no choice but to endure.

In both cases, the word endure refers to obstacles that an individuals experiences, rather than wrongdoing.
