Reconnecting with your true Christian heritage starts with language, context and facts, and for the last sixteen hundred years you've been fed a thin gruel indeed, of all three. In today's episode, we opened up the spiritual menu and order in a second language. That should come to you pretty easily. Is it all Greek to you? Long before God decided to reveal himself to us by sending his only son, he prepared the way for him so that his message could be universally heard and understood. You may have heard of it or no. It is preparing a path, making the way. That's what God did for his son about three hundred years before he descended from heaven to Capernaum and began preaching the holy word right in the middle of enemy territory, preaching it to all people, including news, who would later attempt to kill him multiple...

...times before finally being allowed to temporarily succeed. Now is readers of the very first Bible, the pretty Nicene Bible. No, Jesus transcends race. We know our Christian God was only revealed through his son, and he doesn't play favorites with one group over another, but instead loves us all. Equally as his children, and he had a very important message for his children and he wanted all of them to understand it. But even back in one a d this would have been a huge problem. You See, two thousand years ago the entire worldwide population was over two hundred million and there were almost six thousand different languages and dialects being spoken. That's a lot of burlitz courses. Even Latin was only spoken by eighteen percent of the known world. And Hebrew, forget it, maybe zero point zero, zero. One percent of the world...

...even heard of it, much less spoken. Even the Jews themselves barely used it, except for scribbling on their law scrolls. Now both can be dismissed from consideration as being part of any worldwide path being made for Jesus to communicate with us. Let's do a quick rundown on the other big languages spoken at the time and see if any of those fit. Let's see. We have Arabic, sanscript to mill Chinese, Aramaic, Egyptian, Sumerian, Persian and and Greek. Now some of our more astute and adept listeners and viewers would say, well, the answer has to be Greek. I mean, after all, it's not only in the title of today's show, but the New Testament and the gospels were all written in Greek. Even all Paul's original epistles...

...were written in Greek. So the answer has to be Greek. Now, most people would be pretty comfortable with that answer on a game show. They might even have a smug look of satisfaction as they said it. But unfortunately they'd be wrong, or rather they'd be half right. You see, there was only one language that everybody in the known world spoke at that time, and it didn't matter if you were an Egyptian king, a Persian rugmaker or a Roman soldier, or a wandering Jew, rich or poor, educated or a goat farmer. Everybody knew it, spoke it and understood it, and that language was called coining coiny. Greek, K O I n E. Coiny, and coiny means common. So Common Greek. But the story of how it became the language of God, Lingua Franca, would begin over three...

...hundred years earlier, and at the heart of that story as a man named Alexander, you know him as Alexander the Great, and a new world changing technique used to blend diverse cultures and language called Hellenization. Both would be used by God to prepare the path for Jesus and his message. The Hellenistic age was a time when Greeks came in contact with outside people and their Hellenic Classic Culture blended with the cultures from Asia and Africa to create a blended culture. One man, Alexander, King of Macedonia, a Greek speaker, is responsible for this blending of cultures. Now I'm going to spare you having to relive social studies classes from high school, so let's just suffice it to say that in just a few short years, beginning in three thirty six BC, Alexander...

...the Great, mounted on his trustee steed, the Sephalis, conquered all the lands that would become so important to both the coming mission of Jesus and later the travels of the Apostle Paul, as he established New Christian churches in these exact same cities, following the very path of Alexander's armies. But because of the larger goals and vision involved in his conquests, a vision he may not have been acutely aware of, but probably since that he was involved or part of a greater goal, Alexander he didn't humiliate his enemies after defeating them. His goal wasn't to plunder them and rub their faces in it. It wasn't to kill all their women and children, as the Jews did countless times on instructions from their deity, as they themselves claim in their Torah, later renamed the Old Testament. Instead, he did the exact opposite it. He hellenized...

...them, going so far as to marry various princesses in Persia and even Afghanistan to ensure the path he was laying would endure for centuries. Now, of tangential interest is that the Jews sided with Persia against Alexander the great during the war and, as usual, as we see time and time again, placing themselves on the wrong side of God's will. And shortly after his victory, according to scholars, Alexander was poisoned by unknown persons and died at the age of thirty two. Now, as regular viewers and listeners are aware, some of these episodes inevitably end up taking little historical side journeys as the result of facts and content that we feel as relevant and Germane to issues of today. Now, I don't want anyone to get lost in the weeds here, but it may be worth taking a moment to reflect, to contrast and compare Alexander's...

...actions, using non violent hellenization to create a worldwide change, versus the satanic methods being used today by the enemies of all mankind, as described by Paul and First Thessalonians to fifteen. It's almost as if Satan's parasites are deliberately using reverse hellenization to murder, poison and enslave the world. As they redefine words and reclassify, evil is good and good is evil. But Rust assured, people like Klaus Schwab and George Sorrows, or whatever their real names are, don't even measure up to a stray fingernail clipping of Alexander the Great. You See, one side worked on behalf of our Christian God, the other works on behalf of their Deity, Satan. And what should we call this verse...

Hellenization, this inversion of good and evil? Should we call it Talmud Ization? I really don't know, but you're welcome to leave your ideas in the comments section. Now, then, this hellenization process would be used throughout Africa, Asia, Persia and the Mediterranean and with it the coiny Greek language would be cemented everywhere in the known world, the common language creating a common bond among all. Now, this was also a time of advances in learning, math, art and architecture. Some of the great names of learning in this age included our comedes, hero and Euclid. The great cities of the Hellenistic Age included Antioch in Syria, Pergamon in Asia minor and Alexandria in Egypt, with its library of Alexandria, the largest library of the ancient world. And, interestingly, although none of these of these were in Greece, they all...

...had Greek architecture. And finally, although the Greeks believed in many lesser gods, they believed that there was only one creator, but they didn't have a name for him at the time. You see, they were about as close to knowing God as you can get before he finally revealed himself through his son Jesus, three years later. Now that we know the rest of the story and how the Path was laid for its use, let's see this coiny Greek in action. Well, Jesus speaking to Pancha's pilot. Coiny Greek Jesus speaking to Roman soldiers. coiny Greek Jesus delivering the sermon on the Mount he did it in coiny Greek. Jesus debating Jews. Coiny Greek Jesus casting out demons. Coiny Greek Jesus teaching the Apostles Katokis and, I think, amy and...

...tea and Switzerland also in coiny Greek. Every New Testament, every gospel, coiny Greek. Paul's original epistles, borrowed from a mercy night church by Saint Jerome before being translated into Latin. Yeah, coiny Greek, the last words of Jesus before death, father, into your hands. I commend my spirit unquote. You guessed it, coiny Greek. The oldest inscription in the world there in the name of Jesus, is on a Marcy and night church in Syria, written in what? Oh, that's right, coiny Greek. Now these are the facts and they are undisputed. Is Christians were compelled to always seek the truth then hold fast to it. And as we peel away the...

...layers of the onion, we find that truth always is, leading to the very first Bible of one forty four a d the Pre Nicene Bible with its One Gospel, the gospel of the Lord, and Paul's original ten epistles, and we find our Christian roots and heritage to be Greek, not Hebrew. In fact, both Paul and Jesus warn US explicitly about them. I mean, imagine thinking that the Christian church grew because Hebrew was used and Jews were converted. Well, that dog won't hunt, and history and facts take us in the opposite direction every time. And Despite Sixteen Hundred Years of Judaizers trying to confuse you by stapling two different religions together and weaving false gospels to further their narrative, the truth remains solid as Iraq if you're willing to seek it. Now we're living in some extra narrowly dangerous times as Christians, and it's...

...very important that your feet and beliefs are on solid theological foundation. Remember when you hear someone say it's all Greek. To me there's a very good reason for it. Let's wrap up today's episode with some viewer Male, a couple of housekeeping items and, well, why not, a little music? The music you're going to hear is the oldest complete musical composition in the world. It's called the song of secular site. Hope I pronounced that right, and it's dated back to around the first century BC in Greece, so it's possible that the apostles or even Jesus himself may have heard this song thanks to what Hellenization and our viewer mail this week is from P L in the United States and it reads in part I now understand what you mean by Judaizers. You're referring to both the ancients and the modern ones, like Messianic Jewish Christians who...

...are trying to tell Christians that we should follow Torah, the law of the Old Testament God and Jewish holy days. She continues. I have been flabbergasted to learn that Paul Received The Gospel directly from the Lord. I always thought that was meant figuratively, not literally. Now so much of what Paul said makes sense, and I love the simplicity of one Gospel, one Lord. Well, not only is she correct, she explains it better than I ever could. So thank you for sending that in now. We touched on a lot of different subjects today and I'm going to try and have links for some, if not all, of them in the show. Notes so you can do some independent deep dives on your own if you'd like. And just to reminder that the very first Bible has been translated into Spanish and resilient Portuguese, and it's available as a free e book at La Primera Biblia Dot Org.

And, as always, you can get it in English at the very first Bible Dot Org Dot Org. And speaking of books, the FBN Book of the month is titled the First New Testament by Dr Jason Badoon. It's an excellent read when you want in depth analysis of the backstory behind the Bible and why the original looks so different from what we have today. And finally, as I'm sure you're aware, getting any kind of actual news that hasn't been filtered, narrated, hydrogenated and degaussed by the Anti Christian medium monopolies is nearly impossible, but FBN is hoping to help change that with first news and our new video headlines. There are daily thirty second clip of the top stories view through the prism of Pre nicene Christianity. You can check that out at news dot First Bible net at work dot Com. Thanks for listening. I'm Darren...

Kalama with first news. Kill them all, old and young, girls and women and little children. Does that sound like something Jesus would ever say to you? The first Christians didn't think so either, and that's why you won't find the Old Testament in the first Christian Bible of one four four a D reconnect with your pre nicene Christian roots and the Bible you were meant to have, ten books and the Gospel of the Lord.
