from the book The Nazarene by Rav Sha’ul
Special thanks to David Hughes (Renown Davidian Genealogy Expert), Dr. Robert Mock (Biblical Historian and Researcher), and Robert Killian (Biblical Chronologist) for their lifelong dedication to the search for the true Messiah of Israel… this teaching relies heavily on their research, expertise, and contribution generously granted to the public domain.
Note: Throughout this teaching, I will use quotes from other sources. These sources refer to the Messiah by various names such as Yehoshua or even Jesus. I will quote these sources directly and will not alter their quotes, so please replace these names with the proper name Yahusha. These sources may also refer to Joseph as the “foster or step father” of Yahusha. The Sabbath Covenant denies all attempts to break the Scarlet Thread of Redemption by denying Joseph his rights as the biological father of Yahusha. Yahuah has no physical seed, and Yahusha came “in the flesh” which means 100% human, natural conception only, outside of any divine influence. Yahuah’s seed is The Ruach and it is imparted upon Mikveh when Yahusha was born again, and Yahusha was begotten divine upon resurrection. That is The Way. Born human, perfected, begotten divine through resurrection. I quote these sources not for their understanding of or belief in incarnation, but because of their dedicated study of history, lineages, and research into the humanity of the Messiah.
I will begin with the introduction from Dr. Robert Mock:
“As we begin this series, we will be relying upon the genealogical research of one of the prominent researchers of the “Davidic Dynasty”, David Hughes. His 2007 publication of “British Chronicles” has now vaulted David Hughes to one of the premier researchers of ancient genealogies. At the end of each section, will be the links to the many genealogical lineages from ancient empires and nations of the world. The half a century before the birth of the Jewish messiah, Yehoshua HaMaschiach (Jesus the Messiah), the land of Judea was swirling with intrigue, international politics, political assassinations, royal sibling rivalries, dynastic marriages, alliances, treaties, and geo-political machinations. There surrounded by the last of the Maccabee rulers, and the first of the Herodians, was the ancestral family of Yehoshua HaNotzri (Jesus the Nazarene). This dynastic family of the House of David has been documented for almost two millenniums in the Brit Hadassah (reNewed Testament) and for equally that long has been argued, debated, and challenged about who were these people and what was their role and involvement in the social culture of that man the Christians call “Jesus of Nazareth”.
It has long been the position of the Roman Christian Church and the orthodox apologetics that “Jesus” was born in Nazareth to a poor peasant family, living in a small rural village, probably had little education, spoke the colloquial Semitic language of Aramaic. They have taught that He probably did not read nor speak Hebrew, Greek, nor Latin. Yet, the historical and genealogical testimony that is today available testifies to a different fact. As we open the sacred testimonies of the apostles and disciples of Jesus, we first are met with two genealogies, one coming from the royal lineage of the “chosen one”, King Solomon, who was chosen to follow in the path of his father, King David, the king of United Israel. Solomon was the youngest son of the last, but favorite bride of King David, Bathsheba. It is this ancestral lineage of Yahusha from King Solomon to Joseph, we meet Prince Joseph the father of Yahusha, where we will begin this series, learning about the ancestors of Yahusha the Nazarene.
Here we begin our quest to flesh in the historical data of the ancestral history of that man known as Rabbi Yahusha that is presented by researchers and reset this information into the history of the Jewish people. It is believed that the greater these traditions fit and blend within the historically verified history of the Jews, the more likely are the validity of these revelations. The scanty historical information has belied any reliable reconstruction of the family of Yahusha for centuries, but little by little the veil is disappearing.”
It does not take making Yahusha into an Egyptian Pharaoh or a Parthian prince, for Yahusha’s real place in history is as a Davidian prince fully involved in the Jewish culture of His day.
With the roadmap of the vast genealogical archives left by the Jewish royal and rabbinic chroniclers of the royal House of David, the research widened when BibleSearchers received this vignette of the family of Yahusha from Biblical chronologist, Robert Killian of Monaco who is presently lives along the Mediterranean Sea in researching Southern Gaul about the ancient traditions, local legends, and historical records left by the Romans about the inroads of the Jewish Nazarenes that spread out over the heartland of the Roman Empire with the “Good News” of “The Way”.”
End of quote.
As one of the foremost researchers into the discrepancies of the five major Biblical chronologies, the Antiquarian Researcher Robert Killian wrote:
“The Jesus Movement had been surrounded by the family of Jesus. Joseph of Arimathea, who was born by Rachel of Arimathea to Matthat-thrice,(married three times!), a son of Levi ben Melchi, was the half-brother of “Heli”, the father of the Virgin Mary. Heli was first born of Matthat-thrice and was killed by the order of Herod the Great in about 17 BC “for sedition”. This Heli, like Joseph of Arimathea, was a supplier of metal for all uses that were shipped from Wales, Ireland and France to the Middle East..The Welch myth and legends tell of Anna, the mother of Mary had been a “Cornish Princess”. Of course, the Church maintains that she was the wife of Joachim. This was the position of Saint Jerome who wrote his genealogical findings from his “stay in Jerusalem” almost 400 years after the event. The clear relations of Miriam and Theudas, as well as, the family of Clopas (Alphaeus), there is much “Controversy” about exactly who were the children of the “twin brothers”, Clopas, and Ptolas.
.It turns out that Ptolas was killed in about 6 AD, when Jesus was, perhaps, 8 or 9 years old. Ptolas and Clopas, the two uncles of Jesus, had been born in 26 BC to Jacob ben Matthan, who, first had a daughter born of Eucharia, a young Jewish princess. That daughter was Miriam (b. 36 BC). Then, Jacob was “appointed” Patriarch of Jerusalem” by Herod and sent to Egypt, with about 3000 troops, to help Caesar “Octavian” in the conquest of Anthony and Cleopatra in 30 BC. It was at this time that a “posthumously” born daughter of Julius Caesar and the Queen Cleopatra was “given to a foreign Prince”. This “daughter” was three weeks short of her 13th birthday when her full-blood brother, Caesarion, was “strangled” at the order of Octavian, who said, ‘there was not enough room for two Caesars in the Roman Empire”. It was, apparently, this young girl that, from that time was known as Cleopatra of Jerusalem. The Grandmother of Yahusha the Messiah..Before the end of 29 BC she had born Joseph (the Carpenter and Father of Yahusha the Messiah) and it was then, in 26 BC, that the “twins” Ptolas and Clopas were born. Just three years later, in 23 BC Herod had Jacob (Yahusha’s Grandfather) “killed for sedition” and “gave” Jacob’s wife to the High-Priest, Simon ben Boethus, while, in the same year Herod took Miriamne II, Simon’s daughter, as his own 3rd wife. Then, just two years after that marriage, Herod “took” this Cleopatra of Jerusalem as his 5th wife, having, in the interval, also married the Samaritan wife Malthrace, who would give birth to Archelaus and Antipas.
So, we find the young Cleopatra of Jerusalem at 25 years of age. By then she had had 5 sons with three different husbands for, in 20 BC she gave birth to Philip and in 18 BC she bore another Herod. It was this Herod who would become “just a common citizen of Rome” at the time of the division of the Herodian era in 1 BC after the death of Herod the Great. The Roman records tell us that: early in the year before the shipping lanes were “safe” Archelaus and Antipas sailed for Rome with the intent to claim their portion of the Herodian portion of the Empire. It is mentioned that Philip and his mother Cleopatra of Jerusalem (Yahusha’s Grandmother) did the same a bit later that spring. Her first three sons, Joseph (Yahusha’s Father) and the “twins” were secreted away to the Galilee area to the old fortified home of Hezekiah, Jacobs second brother who had been “caught” and killed previously, by Herod as “being a robber”. At least seven children had been “secreted away” in 23BC. The four of Jacob and the three daughters of Joshua ben Fabius (Phabi) who had been High-Priest also from 36 BC to 23 BC when he was, like Jacob, involved in “sedition”.”
End of quote.
With that introduction from some of the most renown and foremost Biblical and historical scholars, introducing…The King of Kings Yahusha the Messiah!
The Title King of Kings
The Messiah Yahusha has many titles, one of which is The King of Kings. In my book The Nazarene, I cover the titles that our Messiah inherited, showing that the Plan of Salvation was implemented through carefully cultivated bloodlines known as The Scarlet Thread of Redemption. All the titles given to Yahusha were through human bloodlines and inheritance giving Yahusha the authority to rule as King and serve as High Priest. We see King David prophetically speak of the coming Messiah who would be given the inheritance of those who came before him. We know this is prophetically speaking of the Eternal King Yahusha as he inherited Eternal Life (a promise in The Torah) and his years of life will be “as many generations”…
Psalm 61:5 4 Let me dwell in Your tent forever; Let me take refuge in the shelter of Your wings. Selah. 5 For You have heard my vows, O God; You have given me the inheritance of those who fear Your name. 6 You will prolong the king's life; His years will be as many generations.
Sha’ul declared that Yahusha was given his name/title through inheritance, and David declare that Yahusha would be given “the Nations” as his inheritance as King of all Kings by bloodlines:
Hebrews 1:4 So he became as much superior to the angels as the name (Melchi Tsedek, The King of Kings) he has inherited (through bloodlines) is superior to theirs.
Psalm 2:7-8 "I will surely tell of the decree of Yahuah: He said to Me, 'You are My Son, Today (upon his ressurection) I have begotten You. 'Ask of Me, and I will surely give the nations as Your inheritance (he will be King of all Nations by blood), And the very ends of the earth as Your possession (to rule over as King of Kings).
Philippians 2 9 Therefore Yahuah exalted Him to the highest place (King of all Kings), and gave Him the name above all names (Melchi Tsedek, The King of Kings), 10 that at the name of Yahusha (the King of Kings) every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth.
In this teaching, I am going to present to us The King of Kings. I am going to breakdown the Royal Lineage of King Yahusha through is parent’s lineage and the lineage of both sets of his grandparents. I am going to demonstrate that Yahusha was a unique genetic mixture of all Kings and Earthly Dynasties. As a young child, Yahusha was taken to Egypt as a safe haven for His protection from the upheavals in the Herodian dynastic throne. There he would also be shielded as the heir to the Caesar of Rome from the watchful eye of Augustus Caesar (Octavian) who was seeking the children born to Julius Ceasar and Cleopatra and King Herod.
Matthew 2:14 “Then he (Joseph) arose, he took the young Child and His mother by night and departed for Egypt, and was there (in protective custody) until the death of Herod, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Yahuah through the prophet, saying, “Out of Egypt I called My Son.” (Hosea 11:1)
Biblical Historian Dr. Robert Mock states:
“He was welcomed as the royal heir of Cleopatra’s Ptolemaic Imperial throne of Egypt, honored as the recipient of Zadokian high priest genetic bloodlines, respected as the heir to the Hasmonean throne, watched with awe as the heir to the royal thrones of Assyria, Babylon, the Medes and Persians, yet recognized as the long awaited Jewish messiah from the loins of Kings David and Solomon (through Joseph’s seed). The prophetic voice would proclaim that here was the future “King of kings!””
In addition, the wealth of Babylon was delivered to his doorstep when he was 2 years old as he was given the Prophet Daniel’s inheritance. Daniel had accumulated the wealth of 3 Kings! Daniel passed down his estate to the coming King through the Chaldean Astrologers whom Daniel trained to find the newborn King of Kings.
Yahusha was not, as Christianity would have us believe, some unknown born to two unknown parents. He was royalty, and everyone knew it!
The fact is, Yahusha was far from “poor” and even further from “unknown”. The Babylonian ambassadors of Daniel did not go door to door looking for a pregnant “virgin”! They followed the Sign of the Son of Man in The Heavenly Scroll (Virgo giving birth to the King planet Jupiter) directly to Bethlehem as prophsied by Isaiah and Daniel. Then inquired about the newborn King who was long awaited and very much a public figure as he was royalty on every side of the family tree. This is what Yahusha “emptied himself” of… His birthright as King of Kings, to take on the role of the “Suffering Servant”. Yahusha knew he must fulfill The Plan of Salvation as written in The Heavenly Scroll:
Psalm 119:89 Your word, Yahuah, is eternal; it stands firm (written) in (the) heaven(ly scroll).
Matthew 6:10 your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is (written) in (the) heaven(ly scroll)...
Hebrews 10 7 “"THEN I SAID, 'BEHOLD, I HAVE COME (IN THE SCROLL OF THE BOOK (in heaven) IT IS WRITTEN OF ME) TO DO YOUR WILL, O GOD.'"
John 15:13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends.
Matthew 20:28 “just as the Son of Man did not come (the first time) to be served (as King i.e. Messiah ben David), but to serve (as the suffering servant and die as Messiah ben Joseph), and to give His life as a ransom (dowry) for many (his bride on Passover)."
The King of Kings
The paternal grandfather of Yahusha was a Davidian Prince who married the daughter of the royal dynastic families of both the imperial dynasties of Egypt and Rome and thereby received the royal genetic lineage to both imperial thrones.
The maternal grandfather of Yahusha, was also a Davidian Prince whose mother was the heir to the throne of the Hasmonean Dynasty of Judea and became the last Maccabee ruler of the Jews, yet married the dynastic heiress of the High Priest of Israel from the official high priest lineage of Zadok the High Priest of King David.
So allow me to introduce us all to The King of Kings!
Miriam’s Father – Prince Alexander III Helios
Considering all the historical facts in first century Judea BCE, we learn more about Heli the Davidian (the father of Princess Miriam, the mother of Yahusha). Historical records provide the missing pieces of the puzzle. We learn through historical records of the life of a historical prince whose age was the same and who lived a life within the same social circle that paralleled the life of Miriam’s father Heli (short for Helios). This young man was called Prince Alexander III Helios. He was the son of the future Maccabee Queen Alexandra II, who was also known in historical records by her Jewish name, Esther of Jerusalem.
Prince Alexander III Helios was executed by King Herod during the pogroms against the “Princes of David” in the years of 20 to 16 BCE or 17 to 13 BCE, when his daughter Miriam was about 7 years old. Heli, the shortened nickname for Helios (“The Sun”), was a descendant of both the Maccabee/Hasmonean Kings of Judea and a prince of the House of David. Heli’s father was Matthan ben Levi (Biblical Prince Mattathias the Nasi, President of the Sanhedrin). Yahusha is a descendant of the Maccabean Priest Mattathias who was killed in the battle with Antiochus IV during the Abomination of Desolation…
Miriam’s Paternal Grandfather – Matthan ben Levi the Great Grandfather of Yahusha the Messiah
Matthan ben Levi (Yahusha’s Great-Grandfather) was a Davidian Prince married in his youth to the royal princess, Elizabeth of Jerusalem also known as Princess Alexandra II.
Miriam’s Paternal Grandmother – Princess Alexandra II – The Great Grandmother of Yahusha the Messiah
Miriam’s Grandmother was Princess Alexandra II (Elizabeth of Jerusalem) who was married to Matthan ben Levi. Yahusha’s great-grandmother, Princess Elizabeth of Jerusalem, later known by her regnal name, Queen Alexandra II was remarried to King Alexander II, the 8th Maccabee king, who was executed in 49 BCE. They had two children; Prince Aristobulus III (Yahusha’s great-great step uncle), who became the 58th High Priest as a Maccabee, and Princess Mariamme I.
She became the Maccabee Princess that married King Herod the Great, as his 2nd wife. By marrying King Herod (as heiress of the Maccabee Dynasty), she gave King Herod the royal “right” to the Hasmonean throne of Judea. This was well known to King Herod as the picture begins to come into focus as to “why” Herod wanted Yahusha dead; Yahusha was a direct descendant and threat to his throne on every level. Yahusha was heir to the Throne of David AND the Hasmonean Throne upon which Herod was seated illegitimately through marriage!
Miriam’s Mother – Anna (Hanna)
Hanna was one of the 3 daughters of High Priest Yahusha III placed in protective custody of The Temple. Known as The Daughters of Jerusalem, she was married to a Davidian Prince named Heli to carefully cultivate the bloodlines to produce the Messiah, the Melchi Tsedek. It is through Hanna that Yahusha inherited the title Tsedek (High Priest of the House of Zadok).
For a very detailed accounting of Yahusha’s role as High Priest of Israel, please read my book “Melchizedek and The Passover Lamb”
Miriam’s Maternal Grandfather – Zadok High Priest Yahusha III the Great Grandfather of Yahusha the Messiah
Biblical Historian Dr. Robert Mock writes:
“We have already hinted that the grandfather of Miriam was Yehoshua III, the high priest of Israel about twenty years before Miriam’s son Yahusha HaNotzri was born. Yahusha III, the High Priest of Israel, was one of the most mysterious of all the high priests in the era of King Herod the Great..He came to power as the High Priest of the Temple in Jerusalem in 36 BCE, one year after the Great Sanhedrin made the momentous vote to include the Davidian lineages of the Abuites and the Rhesaites whose descendants as the Princes of David, came from Jewish Persian Governor Zerubabbel’s first two wives, the Babylonian Princess bride, Amytis and the Persian Princess bride, Rhodogune.”
Who was the high priest that presided over the Sanhedrin when that vote was taken? We are not sure, but Yahusha III’s grandfather, Boethus, is a good candidate..In the genealogies of the “High Priest of Israel” by Davidian genealogist, David Hughes, Boethus was a Zadokian descendant, the 31st in descent from Zadok, the high priest of King David..This is of special note, because it was the Yahuah of hosts that specifically noted to King David and his son, King Solomon that it would be the High Priest Zadok and his descendants who would carry the hereditarial responsibility to be the chosen in descent of the House of Aaron to preside in the honored position as the High Priests of Israel..They were to represent the national consciousness of the Israelites and the Jewish people in the sacred services at Pesach (Passover and the Festival of First Fruits), Pentecost, Yom Kippur (Day of Judgment), and Succot (Festival of Tabernacles).”
Ezekiel 44 24 And the priests, the Levites, the sons of Zadok.. my nation they should instruct between holy and mundane, and between impure and pure - they should cause them to know them. And on quarrels they should stand to judge using my justice and judge him. And my Law and my statutes in all my feasts they should guard and my Sabbaths they should sanctify.
High Priest Hananeel
Also in Yahusha family tree was the Great High Priest Hananeel the Egyptian, as in the traditions of the Red Heifer, he was one of the esteemed priests who was privileged to sacrifice the eighth Red Heifer in order to collect the “Ashes of the Red Heifer” in order to purify the holy sanctuary and the “purification water of ashes” used in all the purification rites within the temple.
Mishnah Tractate Parah 3 5 “The first heifer that was burned was under the supervision of Moses on that 2nd day of Nissan in the second year from the Exodus. The second heifer was burned under the supervision of Ezra; two were burned by Shimon Ha Tzaddik; two were burned by Yochanan, the High Priest, the seventh by Eliehoenai, the son of He-Kof, the eighth by Hanamel, the Egyptian, the ninth by Ishmael, son of Piabi and the tenth will be burned in the time of the Moschiach.”

Joseph’s mother and father – Jacob ben Mattan & Cleopatra of Jerusalem VIII
Yahusha is heir to the last Pharaoh of Egypt, Queen Cleopatra VII of Egypt and Julius Caesar the Dictator of Rome; who were the parents of Cleopatra of Jerusalem (Yahusha’s Paternal Grandmother). Cleopatra of Jerusalem became the “foreign wife” of the Patriarch Jacob ben Matthan (the Patriarch of Jerusalem). Prince Jacob (Joseph’s father)already had one daughter, and with his new bride, the highly profiled daughter of Queen Cleopatra VII of Egypt, they soon had three more children. One of which was Yahusha’s father Joseph.
Prince Joseph “the Carpenter” and father of Yahusha born to Princess Cleopatra VIII, daughter of the last great Pharaoh of Egypt… Cleopatra VII and Roman Emperor Julius Ceasar
Again Dr. Robert Mock writes:
“Prince Jacob ben Matthan married Princess Cleopatra of Jerusalem, the posthumous daughter of Queen Cleopatra VII of Egypt and Julius Caesar, the Dictator of Rome. Together they lived for eight years, between the years of 30 to 23 BCE, in the metropolitan city of Jerusalem. Jacob presided over his official business as the Prince of Israel in the role as the Patriarch of Jerusalem. During these years, Jacob and Cleopatra’s family grew to three sons and one older half sister. One of which was Prince of David Joseph (Yosef), known as the “Carpenter”, who became the father of; Yahusha ben Yosef (Yahusha the son of Joseph) Prince Joseph, it is believed, was born about 29 BCE. Despite the aging halakhic decree, “you are not a Jew unless your mother is a Jew”, it did not detract from Prince Joseph being recognized as a “royal heir of King David”.
Strange as it may be, it did not make a difference with the High Priest who officiated at the betrothal of Prince Joseph ben Jacob and the young “temple virgin” Miriam who was orphaned when her father, Prince Alexander III Helios, was executed by King Herod during the pogroms against the Princes of David in the years of 20 to 16 BCE or 17 to 13 BCE, when Mary was between four and seven years old.”
Jacob ben Mattan – Babylonian Ancestry
Dr. Robert Mock explains how Yahusha was heir to the Babylonian Dynasty through his Grandfather on his father Joseph’s side; Jacob ben Mattan the Patriarch of Jerusalem:
“Who was this Jacob ben Mattan that suddenly became the favored of King Herod the Great? Tracing back five hundred years prior, according to the conventional dates of history, Governor Zerubabbel was the guest of his grandfather, King Jeconiah, who had only recently been released from prison and restored as the “favorite” in the court of the new king of Babylon, King Evil-Merodach, the son of King Nebuchadnezzar. With his father, Prince Shealtiel, the 2nd Exilarch of the Jews, they frequented the Palace of King Nebuchadnezzar, where the royal Babylonian family was in residence. There the young Prince Zerubabbel met the Babylonian princess, Amytis, who was to become his new child bride, in a dynastic wedding sealing the good relations between the Jews and the Babylonians.
The Babylonian King Evil-Merodach ruled for twenty two years, according to the Jewish calendar of history, and during these years, Prince Zerubabbel and his new Babylonian Princess bride, Amytis, had a son whom they named, Prince Sheshbazzar. Here was the ancestral forefather of Prince Jacob ben Matthan..The descendants of Governor Zerubabbel and his Babylonian wife, Amytis, became known as an illegitimate or “bastard” lineage by the Torah decree of Ezra the Scribe who returned in the second aliyah (return) of the Jews near the completion or just after the dedication of the Temple of Zerubabbel. The new governance of the Jewish people was being established. This time, the Jewish people would be governed by a theocratic government under the religious rule of the Zadokian high priest dynasty with the religious clerics.”
The Family of Yahusha’s Relationship with the Hasmoneans and the Herodians
Christianity and Judaism have hidden the true reality of this Royal Family of Yahusha the Messiah. Instead of being poor and unkown, as we are “told”, they were actually the most Royal Family in Israel, Rome, and Egypt! And very well connected and involved in Jewish society and in the upper class of society. Kings (Herod) do not set out a massive manhunt to kill “nobodies”. They do not kill their own children out of fear of a poor peasant child.
They do undertake progoms to seek out and DESTROY a child that has the Royalty of every Dynasty running through his veins… This is why, even though he was innocent, Ciaphas still did not stop Yahusha’s execution… because he was a threat to Rome too! Yahusha was NOT killed by the “Jews”! He was killed by the Romans and Jewish ELITE!
Dr. Robert Mock:
As BibleSearchers have long affirmed, the role of the family of Jesus was more dynamically involved in the geo-political world surrounding Judea than most Christian historians have been willing to give credit. We appeal to the genealogical research as reported in the “Davidic Genealogies” by David Hughes and note his credentials in his book, “The British Chronicles” which came to print in 2007, has now made him world renown. As we look at the life of Miriam, the orphaned child of the Davidic prince, Heli (Prince Alexander III Helios), according to the genealogy of Jesus as recorded in the Gospel of Luke, do we comprehend the involvement of this dynamic family in Jewish religious and Judean political history?
If the genealogies are documented to the best of historical second temple scholarship, than the Maccabee or Hasmonean influence into the life the first century Jewish messiah, Jesus the son of Mary (Yahusha ben Miriam), was significant. We can only begin to comprehend the force of the allegiance of the people of Judea and Galilee to the aura that surrounded even one who was recognized as a Prince of David. With the historical layering of the religious and political history over the genealogy of Yahusha the Nazarene, we discover some amazing paths that crossed the worlds of the Hasmoneans, the Herodians, the Caesars of Rome, and the woman Pharaoh who coveted Judea.
What an amazing such relationships appeared to be. Some may be threatened that the great-grandmother of Yahusha the Messiah (HaMaschiach) may have been the last Pharaoh of Egypt, Cleopatra VII who was of Greek Seleucid descent. But we have to consider that the great grandmother of King David, Ruth, was of the cursed lineage of the Moabites by the incestuous relationship between Lot, the nephew of Abraham and his daughter. Her life became one of the revered stories in the bible of love, faith, and devotion.
Was not the great-great grandmother of King David, Rahab, a double cursed Canaanite prostitute from Jericho, yet she became one of the revered women to be honored as the ancestress grandmother of the messiah?
For centuries the quest of the BibleSearcher has been to discover the historical Yahusha the Messiah. Taken away from the mystical past of Jewish history, separated from His Jewish religion, and divorced from His Jewish philosophical and theological foundation of the Hebrew Worlds of Creation, the Image of God, the purpose of the Sinai Covenant, and the Shadow-pictures of the Festivals of Yahuah, the historical Messiah Yahusha was transplanted onto a Hellenistic Greco-Roman portrayal of God. To the Christian, the historical “Jesus” many times gets lost in the ascendant Son of God.
To take Yahusha away from His own human history has in essence corrupted our understanding of who He really was.
By losing His humanness, we also lost a lot in the understanding His divine role being about “His Father’s business” as He was sent as an emissary to this planet earth….
