Reference Book Review Listing
This my personal opinion and review of the reference books I used in my research, on this website and in my daily devotional to Yehovah. I do not receive compensation for my reviews. I created this page simply to pass the Blessing on.
A Prayer To Our Father by: Nehemia Gordon and Keith Johnson
I loved, loved this book. The stories of their adventures in finding the location of where Yeshua could have most likely taught the Our Father prayer to the multitude is delightful! The simplicity of the prayer its self is beautiful. I printed the page out and hung it on my wall. Having the ability to say the prayer in Hebrew can be emotional. You too can learn to read it and say it in Hebrew. Keith Johnson of Biblical Foundations Academy International makes it so easy to learn. You can purchase your copy at BFA International.

Hebrew Mathew by: George Howard
The book of Matthew has always been my favorite book unless you asked my husband, then he would say Revelation. When I heard that the book of Matthew was found written in Hebrew I was overexcited. Why? There are some problems with the Greek translation into English. Some things didn't add up. I found the book for sale on Nehemia's Wall where I frequent to hear the weekly teachings of Nehemia Gordon, a Jewish Biblical Scholar. I read the book in one swift reading. It confirmed for me what I exactly needed to know and what I had expected. I encourage you to purchase a copy and read it for your self. When you put the Hebrew Translation next to the Greek and English, WOW! It will cause you to make a life-changing decision that changes everything you have been taught. After reading this book I encourage you to read The Hebrew Yeshua vs. The Greek Jesus by Nehemia Gordon.

The Hebrew Yeshua vs. The Greek Jesus by: Nehemia Gordon
What are the differences between what is taught in the American church about Jesus that could possibly be different from a Hebraic viewpoint and what the book of Matthew written in Hebrew says? A lot. This scholarly approach is eye opening and brings you to a new understanding of what Yeshua meant verse what we have been told. But don't take my word for it. Read it for yourself. You can purchase a copy from Nehemia's Wall in his store.

Our Father Abraham by: Marvin R. Wilson
This book is very well researched. To be honest, my heart is broken by the events that the Jewish people have endured and are still enduring today. I had some idea of the history of Christianity from reading a book called The Distortion: 2000 Years of Misrepresenting the Relationship Between Jesus by Fischer. However, I had no idea of the extensive Jewish history beyond the Bible. If you do not know, I encourage you to read both books and be prepared to fall to your knees in asking for forgiveness of not only ourselves, in what we have been taught in American Christian churches but by the actions of our forefathers. These two history books changed my perception from inherited lies to historical truths. Which led me to a humbling, spiritual cleansing experience.
