The 3 Torah's

The 3 Torah'sApr 22, 2022
Welcome to "The 3 Torah's" first video introduction. The show is about three different translations of the five books of Moses. 2 of the oldest translations in Hebrew the Samaritan and Masorrectic translations, and the Greek Septuagint (LXX). What are the translations similarities and differences? And what does a Secret Fourth Torah tell us about the deeper spiritual insights into the Bible as the living, breathing word of God? Join us on this unique journey.
Masoretic Torah - Genesis 1 - Milleniums of Time
Diving into the text of the JPS (Jewish Publication Society) examining the orthodox Jewish perspective on Genesis chapter 1. Challenging our perspective at how the creation can help shed light on Scripture to reveal a bigger picture of Ye'Ho'Vah Elohim's perfect will. We shall see a mysterious message in Genesis Five in relation to a day that God refused to call "Good" Symbology in creation will come alive in a new way when examining Els birth, judgment, and redemption of Israel as a nation. Such understanding helps us see what is known as a Chaiasm or a Chaiastic structure in Greece or a Menorah image in Hebraic circles that reveals through the fourth Torah - the Ruach Kodesh (Holy Spirit) a gimps of how God sees time in his omnipresence.
Introduction to the Samaritan Pentateuch Part 2
In this second introduction to the Samaritan Torah. This time we delve deeper into the Academic debate surrounding the Samaritans as Jews and Hebrews. Not only is the text of various Hebrew languages examined, we also see why the Samaritans favored the Torah separate from most other sects of the 1st century A.D. and earlier. Admittedly there is debate on the Samaritan Hebrew spelling, place names, and Pronunciations. This is why many favor the rigid Masoretic foundation in translation. Furthermore there are differences in the numbers used for passage of time. Was the Jews exile in Egypt 215 years (according to the Samaritans) or 430 years (According to mainstream Judaism). Both favor their own traditions and Oral law. Yet strictly control the written law. Curiously thanks to the DSS (Dead Sea Scrolls), out of 1,900 differences the LXX (Greek Septuagint) agrees with the Samaritan Torah.

Introduction to the Greek Septuagint (LXX)
Introduction to the Israelite Samaritan Pentateuch
Our First introduction examines the oldest Torah, the Samaritan Pentateuch, that is curiously written in a square Paleo-Hebrew Script. A rich history, the Samaritans are the forgotten and heavily smeared "Catholics" of Judaism for vast beliefs in Angels and some psuedo pagan practices. The textual compilation of Torah's is discussed, along with the academic views between the Samaritan and Masoretic translations. With over 6,000 differences between both Hebraic texts we are certain to encounter a unique Torah from an Israelite tribe that is largely forgotten and vanishing.
Introduction to the Masoretic Torah
Our second introduction to the 3 Torah's continues with the Traditional or "Masoretic" Text. The text published by orthodox Judaism from the JPS (Jewish Publication Society). In the process we will discover the history of the oldest Babylonian Hebrew texts, the useful method of textual criticism, and in the process of the podcast, unintentionally discover a useful website called "The Mechanical Torah" translation that allows non hebrew readers to read Anglicized Hebrew and the English side by side.
