Genesis-Moshe 1: B'reishith-בראשית

You are holding the author’s notes on the book of Genesis as he has taught it for more than fifteen years on succeeding Sabbaths and on various venues, both “brick and mortar” and online.Some men have made a mess of what Elohenu (our God) revealed to the patriarchs and prophets, both Old and New Testaments, translating it with the biases of their rabbis or pastors or denominations.Mark is attempting (he even succeeds once in a while) to understand it and teach it as close to El’s [God’s] original intent as he can get by eliminating those doctrinal biases. (For instance, “God nailed the Law to the cross.” There were exactly two things nailed to the Roman torture stake. What were they? Hint: One was Yeshua or Jesus. Matthew 27:37, Mark 15:26, Luke 23:38, John 19:19—look these up and then think.)If that teaser intrigues you, see what Moshe [Moses] has to say in Genesis. There’s a lot more than just what’s written on the page.
