One problem that presents itself, in translating the New Testament from Hebrew and Aramaic into English, is that of the gender of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit). English is very different from Hebrew and Aramaic. To begin with, English has three genders:
masculine, feminine, and neuter (i.e. he, she, and it). Hebrew and Aramaic have no neuter gender. In Hebrew and Aramaic everything is either a “he” or a “she”, and nothing is an “it”. Also gender plays a much more important role in Hebrew and Aramaic, than in English. In English, gender is usually only an issue when dealing with pronouns. But in Hebrew and in Aramaic, nouns and verbs are also masculine or feminine. And while there are no true adjectives in Hebrew (nouns are used as adjectives), noun modifiers must agree in gender with the noun. Now the Hebrew word RUACH (Aramaic RUCHA) is grammatically feminine, as is the phrase Ruach HaKodesh. This is matched by the role of the Ruach HaKodesh as “comforter” (John 14-16), and the identification of the “comforter”,with YHWH acting as a “mother” (Is. 66:13).
Now in English, the Ruach is often referred to as “he” or “it” as also in the Greek New Testament. However this seems very odd indeed, to the Semitic mind. Now it is very clear that the gender of the RUACH has been revised in many passages of the Aramaic, to agree with the Hellenistic concept of the Holy Spirit as being either a “he” or an “it”. Thus the pronouns used for the Ruach HaKodesh in John 14-16 in the Peshitta, are all masculine. However the hand of revision is very clear. For example, while both the Peshitta and Old Syriac have “he” in John 16:8, the Old Syriac has “she” just a few verses further down in 16:13, while the Peshitta has “he”. Moreover there are many passages in which the Peshitta itself, pairs the Ruach HaKodesh with feminine verbs and/or feminine modifiers: Mk. 1:10; John 1:32, 33; 6:63; 7:39; Acts 8:29, 39; 16:17; Proverbs 1:20, Rom. 8:9, 10, 11, 16, 26a, 26b, 1Cor. 3:16; 1Tim. 4:1; 1Pt. 1:11; 4:14 and 1Jn. 5:6. In fact the Peshitta Aramaic of Rom. 8:16, opens with:
And she the Ruach gives testimony….
While it is clear that the Ruach HaKodesh has no literal gender, it is also clear that the Ruach HaKodesh is grammatically and figuratively a “she”.
Christopher and JJ Roxx discuss HaSatan in the music industry, they compiled a ton of clips illustrating only a very small percentage of the influence of HaSatan in the music industry and what goes on behind closed doors in the music industry. From Satanic spells cast upon the master tapes of the albums purchased by your children, to a homosexual underground in the rap, hip hop, and pop music scene. You will not want to miss this episode and parents you are going to want to have your children listen to this episode to find out who is behind the curtain of the music they listen to.
For more info on your favorite musicians and their occultic influence please visit this website (Much thanx to Christopher's fiancee' Tammy for the website submission) http://theater.goodfight.org/
Christopher talks about the books of the Bible that have been taken out of your Scriptures. Enoch, Sefar HaYasher, and the Apocrypha
Christopher and JJ Roxx give a quick recap of Karaitism and its birth in Islam...but hence the plot thickens. Christopher and JJ not only prove it's islamic roots, but it's ties to Nazism, and Catholicism. Below are links that source the research as well as the audio of the program which is damning evidence that is undeniable the dangers of Karaitism in modern day Judaism and how it relates to the book of Revelation, was the Holocaust just a warm up?? For what the Karaites will do next? And why do they want to keep you away from the Oral Tradition?
The only website that records a different account: http://www.karaite-korner.org/holocaust.htm
Christopher and JJ parallel the upcoming Torah portion with what is happening in the news with Whitney Houston. Also, they play two clips of audio, one of a orthodox jew pointing out after asking HaShem to speak through him that Yeshua is Salvation (Video Below), and some audio of Christopher going into a Christian book store, and asking if the clerk really knew who the Messiah is.
Christopher talks about Halachic authority in Rabbinic Judaism and in Nazarene Judaism an the difference through using Scripture and Rabbinical Text. (many excerpts taken from Mishna Yeshua by Dr James Scott Trimm www.nazarenespace.com)
Christopher and JJ Roxx discuss the spiritual significance of head coverings as well as the physical, by showing in the Scripture and in the first century writings, where it shows who is commanded to wear head coverings. There is a lot of confusion on this subject in the Hebrew Roots, so hopefully this episode will help shine a light on who wears head coverings and why.
This is without a doubt in the top 5 most controversial episodes of Schtix and Stones in this episode Christopher and JJ are joined by Kabbalist Ayala Chen to discuss the Kabbalah and whether or not believers in Yeshua and Torah should use the Kabbalah as a resource or not. Christopher and JJ went into this show on the fence, only knowing of what they had heard but decided to give a fair and balanced approach to this to determine to Kabbalah or not to Kabbalah.
The body of Messiah is hemorrhaging, it is destroying itself, how can the tribes be reunited with the body of Messiah at odds with each other? Well Christopher and JJ Roxx give a warning to the Hebrew Roots community and in this episode, they hope you are offended and convicted. If we want to come closer to the Messiah and walk Torah better then we need to be convicted and corrected, be open to correction, otherwise the only mater you serve is yourself.
These teachings are by Christopher Fredrickson and air on several Christian radio stations as well as Yeshiva Radio. In Brutal Planet, Christopher discusses the ties of the New Testament with Rabbinic Judaism.
