Today we use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory; from the 1500’s
Today is July 7, 2018 - in the 21 Century
Middle English Julie
Latin Julius "Julius"
Latin Julius mensis "month of Julius"
Latin quintilis mensis "fifth month"
Quintilis (and later Julius) has always had 31 days.
Julius Caesar reformed the Roman calendar (hence the Julian calendar) in 46 BC. In the process, he renamed this month after himself.
We acknowledge Yehovah’s calendar
We are now in the 4th month, day 22 – This month has no scriptural name.
It is not Tammuz as Judaism and some Messianics say it is.
Part of July / August
The new moon for the 5th month starts the evening of July 14, and then, the day time hours are on the 15th Sunday

The False Church Fathers
How did the Church get so far from its Jewish roots?
Unfortunately, it has its basis in anti-Semitism - the hatred of God's chosen people, the Jews.
Look up all the news of 2018 latest anti Semitism – It is still happening
Satan hates the Jews
The term 'anti-semitism' was coined in 1879 by a German journalist Wilhelm Marr to designate anti-Jewish campaigns then appearing throughout Europe. Since that time, the term has been universally applied to any form of behavior or literature which evidences hostility toward the Jews.
Arafat has said "Kill the Christians on Sunday, kill the Jews on Saturday," as well as "Kill a Jew and save your soul".
Anti-Semitism and the early false church fathers
More Jews have been killed in the name of this false Christianity than anything else.
There is so much documentation that it is absolutely appalling to any lover of the Scriptures.
Volumes could be written, but this will only highlight a few. Not only did our False Christian forefathers hate the Jews and disengage themselves from them, they persecuted them throughout history, beginning as early as 69 A.D.
Indeed, from the day that Stephen was stoned to death, there arose intense persecution against the Messianic community in Jerusalem.
The early False Church lodged two big accusations against the Jews:
The first false accusation was "Deicide" that the Jews killed the son of God and that the Jews are ritual murders.
The second false accusation was supersession, now called "Replacement Theology".
This false teaching says that since the Jews had rejected Yeshua as the Son, that their special bond with the Father was no longer valid, and the Christians were now "the new Israel". The triumph of the elect (Christians) over the rejected (Jews) justified the inferior status of the latter and showed them up as the "living witness" and the One and True Faith (Christianity).
The following are just a few examples of how the False Church fathers spoke against the Jews:
The Epistle of Barnabus shows the Church exalted at the expense of the synagogue and the deadly word "Deicide" (the killing of God) appeared in Christian writings.
Justin Martyr charged that the Jews crucified Christ in the highest pitch of their wickedness. It was during this time (150 A.D.) that the first encounter with Replacement Theology was embraced where the church replaced the Jews as God's chosen people.
Tertullian argued that divine judgment is upon Israel, and Jews are destined to suffer for the crucifixion.
New ideas opposing "law" sprang up as early as 160-320 A.D.
Marcion, 2nd century, adopted Matthew 5:17 as key theme to ending God's law and taught that the grace of God superseded it, rejecting the Old Testament.
Several Church Councils from 341 A.D. to 626 A.D. prohibited Christians from celebrating the Sabbath, festivals, and even eating with the Jews. It seemed that the greatest concern with Judaism on the part of Christians leaders was the attraction that it held for Christians. . . . These rules do not come out of bad relations between Jews and Christians (what would now be called, erroneously, anti Semitism), but rather were enacted because relations were good and the authorities wanted to separate the two peoples.
God has always had a remnant that has followed the Torah.
John Chrysostom, 344-407 A.D., preached: "The Jews ... are worse than wild beasts ... lower than the vilest animals. Debauchery and drunkenness had brought them to the level of the lusty goat and the pig. They know only ... to satisfy their stomachs, to get drunk, to kill and beat each other up ... I hate the Jews ... I hate the Synagogue ... it is the duty of all Christians to hate the Jews.
Origen, 185-254 A.D., was most responsible for changing the way the Church interpreted prophecy, creating the atmosphere in which Christian anti-Semitism took root and spread. He developed a new teaching on "legalism" setting the stage throughout history for the term "legalism" becoming synonymous with Judaism and both being condemned. (Legalism is not the following of the Old Testament Torah as is currently defined by some present-day teachings. Webster's Dictionary defines legalism as "the doctrine of salvation by good works."
Using his method the Church began to develop the idea that the Israelites had permanently forfeited all their covenants by rejecting Jesus as the Messiah, that these covenants now belong to the church, and that the church is the only true Israel now and forever. In order to alleviate himself of his sin nature, he castrated himself. Considered to be a heretic, he was excommunicated by two church councils. His later disciples consisted of Gregory, Dionysus, Hieracas, Pamphilus, Eusebius of the Nicene Age).
If the early Church considered him a heretic, why are we still embracing his teachings on legalism today?
The Crusaders (11th and 12th century) theological tenets supported the mass murder of Jews and launched what our generation has come to know in Bosnia as "ethnic cleansing operations".
The Spanish Inquisition still has the country of Spain in bondage to its many curses due to the shedding of innocent blood. These campaigns were both done "in the name of Yeshua and for the glory of God."
Martin Luther, 1483-1546 A.D., was by far the worst proponent of anti-semitism. During his early years, he stated that the Jews were special. When they did not convert to Christianity after the corruption of the Roman Church was exposed, he turned on them, writing:
"Set Jewish synagogues on fire for the honor of God. God will see we are Christians when we get rid of the Jews. Likewise homes should be destroyed; they should be put in a stable; they are not heirs of promises of God and deserve to die. Deprive them of all prayer shawls, prayer books and communication, revoke all passports, stop them from doing all business, everything they possess we believe they stole and robbed from us. They do not have God's blessings, drive them out of the country ... get rid of them."
In 1924 at a Christian gathering in Berlin, Adolf Hitler, a professed Christian, stood before thousands of Christians, and with a standing ovation said:
"I believe that today I am acting in accordance with the will of Almighty God. As I announce the most important work that Christians could undertake and that is to be against the Jews and get rid of them once and for all. We are doing the work of the Lord and let's get on with it." Hitler stated, "Martin Luther has been the greatest encouragement of my life. Luther was a great man. He was a giant. Within one blow he heralded the coming of the new dawn and the new age. He saw clearly that the Jews need to be destroyed and we're only beginning to see that we need to carry this work on." Hitler followed to the letter, Luther's treatise on how to exterminate the Jews. Martin Luther preached his last sermon avidly against the Jews and died four days later. Indeed, Nazi leader Striker at his Nuremberg trial stated, "I have never said anything that Martin Luther did not say".
Other false Christian leaders that were strong proponents of anti-Semitism include:
Constantine the Great (280-337 A.D.);
Saint Gregory of Nyssa (335-394 A.D.);
Saint Augustine (354-430 A.D.);
Saint Jerome (374-419 A.D.);
Saint Fulgentius of Ruspe (467-533 A.D.);
Pope Innocent III (1160-61-1216 A.D.);
Pope Pious IV (1499-15654 C.E.).
John Calvin became a proponent of "grace over law" found in his Institutes of Christian Religion, which became the guide for the Reformed Church of Protestantism. Notable anti-semitists of the twentieth century include Joseph Stalin and Henry Ford.
The most destructive pieces of anti-semitic literature ever produced, especially with its fabrication of the Jews plan to take over the world, is The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, published by Sergyei Nilus of Russia in 1905 .
The Jews have even been blamed for the Black Plague, and as a result were put to death.
Church law throughout the ages has been extremely anti-semitic.
Jews were not permitted to eat with Christians; nor permitted to hold public office; etc, etc.... Other laws included the marking of clothes with a badges; and compulsory ghettos (1267 A.D.).
While all these laws were instituted against the Jews, they were still obliged to pay taxes for support of the Church to the same extent as Christians.
This is only a short list of the atrocities instituted against the Jews.
Many of the things believed to have been originated with Hitler truly found their source with the False Church fathers.
Hitler was just following what he thought to be early False Church doctrine.

Ignatius Bishop of Antioch (98-117A.D.) Epistle to the Magnesians
For if we are still practicing Judaism, we admit that we have not received God’s favor…it is wrong to talk about Jesus Christ and live like Jews. For Christianity did not believe in Judaism, but Judaism in Christianity.
"Epistle of Barnabas" Chapter 4vs 6-7 (between 130A.D. and 138 A.D.)
Take heed to yourselves and be not like some piling up you sins and saying that the covenant is theirs as well as ours. It is ours, but they lost it completely just after Moses received it.
Justin Martyr - Dialogue with Trypho (Between 138A.D. and 161 A.D.)
We too, would observe your circumcision of the flesh, your Sabbath days, and in a word, all you festivals, if we were not aware of the reason why they were imposed upon you, namely, because of your sins and the hardness of heart.
The custom of circumcising the flesh, handed down from Abraham, was given to you as a distinguishing mark, to set you off from other nations and from us Christians. The purpose of this was that you and only you might suffer the afflictions that are now justly yours; that only your land be desolated, and you cities ruined by fire, that the fruits of you land be eaten by strangers before your very eyes; that not one of you be permitted to enter your city of Jerusalem. Your circumcision of the flesh is the only mark by which you can certainly be distinguished from other men…as I stated before it was by reason of your sins and the sins of your fathers that, among other precepts, God imposed upon you the observence of the sabbath as a mark.
Origen of Alexandria (185-254 A.D.) A ecclesiastical writer and teacher who contributed to the early formation of Christian doctrines.
We may thus assert in utter confidence that the Jews will not return to their earlier situation, for they have committed the most abominable of crimes, in forming this conspiracy against the Savior of the human race…hence the city where Jesus suffered was necessarily destroyed, the Jewish nation was driven from its country, and another people was called by God to the blessed election.
John Chrysostom (344-407 A.D.) One of the "greatest" of church fathers; known as "The Golden Mouthed." A missionary preacher famous for his sermons and addresses.
The synagogue is worse than a brothel…it is the den of scoundrels and the repair of wild beasts…the temple of demons devoted to idolatrous cults…the refuge of brigands and dabauchees, and the cavern of devils. It is a criminal assembly of Jews…a place of meeting for the assassins of Christ… a house worse than a drinking shop…a den of thieves, a house of ill fame, a dwelling of iniquity, the refuge of devils, a gulf and a abyss of perdition."…"I would say the same things about their souls… As for me, I hate the synagogue…I hate the Jews for the same reason.
From "The Roots of Christian Anti-Semitism" by Malcolm Hay
St. Augustine (c. 354-430 A.D.), Confessions, 12.14
How hateful to me are the enemies of your Scripture! How I wish that you would slay them (the Jews) with your two-edged sword, so that there should be none to oppose your word! Gladly would I have them die to themselves and live to you!
Peter the Venerable known as "the meekest of men, a model of Christian charity"
Yes, you Jews. I say, do I address you; you, who till this very day, deny the Son of God. How long, poor wretches, will ye not believe the truth? Truly I doubt whether a Jew can be really human… I lead out from its den a monstrous animal, and show it as a laughing stock in the amphitheater of the world, in the sight of all the people. I bring thee forward, thou Jew, thou brute beast, in the sight of all men.

On The Jews and Their Lies
What then shall we Christians do with this damned, rejected race of Jews? Since they live among us and we know about their lying and blasphemy and cursing, we can not tolerate them if we do not wish to share in their lies, curses, and blasphemy. In this way we cannot quench the inextinguishable fire of divine rage nor convert the Jews. We must prayerfully and reverentially practice a merciful severity. Perhaps we may save a few from the fire and flames [of hell]. We must not seek vengeance. They are surely being punished a thousand times more than we might wish them. Let me give you my honest advice.
First, their synagogues should be set on fire, and whatever does not burn up should be covered or spread over with dirt so that no one may ever be able to see a cinder or stone of it. And this ought to be done for the honor of God and of Christianity in order that God may see that we are Christians, and that we have not wittingly tolerated or approved of such public lying, cursing, and blaspheming of His Son and His Christians.
Secondly, their homes should likewise be broken down and destroyed. For they perpetrate the same things there that they do in their synagogues. For this reason they ought to be put under one roof or in a stable, like gypsies, in order that they may realize that they are not masters in our land, as they boast, but miserable captives, as they complain of incessantly before God with bitter wailing.
Thirdly, they should be deprived of their prayer-books and Talmuds in which such idolatry, lies, cursing, and blasphemy are taught.
Fourthly, their rabbis must be forbidden under threat of death to teach any more...
Fifthly, passport and traveling privileges should be absolutely forbidden to the Jews. For they have no business in the rural districts since they are not nobles, nor officials, nor merchants, nor the like. Let them stay at home...If you princes and nobles do not close the road legally to such exploiters, then some troop ought to ride against them, for they will learn from this pamphlet what the Jews are and how to handle them and that they ought not to be protected. You ought not, you cannot protect them, unless in the eyes of God you want to share all their abomination...
To sum up, dear princes and nobles who have Jews in your domains, if this advice of mine does not suit you, then find a better one so that you and we may all be free of this insufferable devilish burden - the Jews...
Let the government deal with them in this respect, as I have suggested. But whether the government acts or not, let everyone at least be guided by his own conscience and form for himself a definition or image of a Jew. When you lay eyes on or think of a Jew you must say to yourself: Alas, that mouth which I there behold has cursed and execrated and maligned every Saturday my dear Lord Jesus Christ, who has redeemed me with his precious blood; in addition, it prayed and pleaded before God that I, my wife and children, and all Christians might be stabbed to death and perish miserably. And he himself would gladly do this if he were able, in order to appropriate our goods...
Such a desperate, thoroughly evil, poisonous, and devilish lot are these Jews, who for these fourteen hundred years have been and still are our plague, our pestilence, and our misfortune.
I have read and heard many stories about the Jews which agree with this judgment of Christ, namely, how they have poisoned wells, made assassinations, kidnapped children, as related before. I have heard that one Jew sent another Jew and this by means of a Christian, a pot of blood, together with a barrel of wine, in which when drunk empty, a dead Jew was found. There are many other similar stories. For their kidnapping of children they have often been burned at the stake or banished (as we already heard). I am well aware that they deny all of this. However, it all coincides with the judgment of Christ which declares that they are venomous, bitter, vindictive, tricky serpents, assassins, and children of the devil, who sting and work harm stealthily wherever they cannot do it openly. For this reason, I would like to see them where there are no Christians. The Turks and other heathen do not tolerate what we Christians endure from these venomous serpents and young devils...next to the devil, a Christian has no more bitter and galling foe than a Jew. There is no other to whom we accord as many benefactions and from whom we suffer as much as we do from these base children of the devil, this brood of vipers.
Translated by Martin H. Bertram, "On The Jews and Their Lies, Luther's Works, Volume 47"; Philadelphia: Fortress Press, 1971.
Martin Luther - 1543
Of The Unknowable Name and the Generations of Christ
But your [God's] judgment is right, justus es Dominie. Yes, so shall Jews, but no one else be punished, who held your word and miracles in contempt and ridiculed, insulted and damned it for such a long time without interruption, so that they will not fall, like other humans, heathens and all the others, into sin and death, not up in Hell, nor in the middle of Hell but in the pit of Hell, as one cannot fall deeper...
Even if they were punished in the most gruesome manner that the streets ran with their blood, that their dead would be counted, not in the hundred thousands, but in the millions, as happened under Vespasian in Jerusalem and for evil under Hadrian, still they must insist on being right even if after these 1,500 years they were in misery another 1,500 years, still God must be a liar and they must be correct. In sum, they are the devil's children, damned to Hell...
The Jews too got what they deserved. They had been called and elected to be God's mouth as Jeremiah says...Open your mouth wide and I will fill it; they however, kept tightly closed their muzzles, eyes, ears, nose, whole heart and all senses, so he polluted and squirted them so full that it oozes from them in all places and devil's filth comes from them.
Yes, that tastes good to them, into their hearts, they smack their lips like swine. That is how they want it. Call more: Crucify him, crucify him. Scream more: His blood come upon us and our children.’ (Matthew 27:25) I mean it came and found you...
Perhaps, one of the merciful Saints among us Christians may think I am behaving too crude and disdainfully against the poor, miserable Jews in that I deal with them so sarcastically and insulting. But, good God, I am much too mild in insulting such devils…
A Response To Questions and Objections of a Certain Jew
Their [the Jews] rotten and unbending stiffneckedness deserves that they be oppressed unendingly and without measure or end and that they die in their misery without the pity of anyone.
Excerpt from "Ad Quaelstiones et Objecta Juaei Cuiusdam Responsio," by John Calvin; The Jew in Christian Theology, Gerhard Falk, McFarland and Company, Inc., Jefferson, NC and London, 1931.
Just about all the 12 tribes, Prophets, Apostles, and Yeshua were Jews
Here are a few Jews of note:
All the Judges
Song of Solomon
Just about all the Kings
John – 3 letters
Jude – 1 letter
Levi / Matthew
A little information pertaining to a Jew, Saul / Paul whom all the churches follow
The Bible has 21 letters, epistles
Paul’s Ministry in includes: Syria, Israel, Asia Minor to Greece, Italy to Rome and all the other cities as the letters are entitled below.
Acts 7  And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man's feet, whose name was Saul.
 And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at
that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at
Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea
and Samaria, except the apostles.
 And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him.
 As for Saul, he made havock of the church, entering into every house, and haling men and women committed them to prison.
Acts 9  And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest,
 And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?
Greek name applied - Paul
Acts 13  Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him,
Saul - Paul is not a Gentile nor is he against the Jews, he is a Jew!
I say the truth in Messiah, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in
the Holy Ghost,
 That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart.
 For I could wish that myself were accursed from Messiah for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh:
 Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises; Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Messiah came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.
Rom. 10  Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.
Rom. 11  I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew.
Phil. 3:  Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee; Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.
Tarsus - a city in Asia Minor
Acts 21  But Paul said, I am a man which am a Jew of Tarsus, a city in Cilicia,
Acts 22  I am verily a man which am a Jew, born in Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, yet brought up in this city at the feet of Gamaliel, and taught according to the perfect manner of the law of the fathers, and was zealous toward God, as ye all are this day.
Acts 26  Which knew me from the beginning, if they would testify, that after the most straitest sect of our religion I lived a Pharisee.
Acts 23  But when Paul perceived that the one part were Sadducees, and the other Pharisees, he cried out in the council, Men and brethren, I am a Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee: of the hope and resurrection of the dead I am called in question.
13 letters have Paul’s name
Rom. 1  Paul, a servant of Yeshua the Messiah, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,
1 Cor. 1 Paul, called to be an apostle of Yeshua the Messiah through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother, --- 1Cor.16 The salutation of me Paul with mine own hand.

Gal. 1  Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Yeshua the Messiah, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;)
Eph. 1  Paul, an apostle of Yeshua the Messiah by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Messiah Yeshua:
Phil. 1  Paul and Timotheus, the servants of Yeshua the Messiah, to all the saints in Messiah Yeshua which are at Philippi, with the bishops and deacons:
Col. 1  Paul, an apostle of Yeshua the Messiah by the will of God, and Timotheus our brother, Col.4 The salutation by the hand of me Paul. Remember my bonds. Grace be with you. Amen.
1 Thes. 1  Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians which is in God the Father and in the Lord Yeshua the Messiah: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Yeshua the Messiah.
2 Thes. 1  Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Yeshua the Messiah: 3: The salutation of Paul with mine own hand, which is the token in every epistle: so I write.
1 Tim. 1  Paul, an apostle of Yeshua the Messiah by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Yeshua the Messiah, which is our hope;
2 Tim. 1  Paul, an apostle of Yeshua the Messiah by the will of God, according to the promise of life which is in Messiah Yeshua,
Tit. 1  Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Yeshua the Messiah, according to the faith of God's elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness;
Phlm. 1  Paul, a prisoner of Yeshua the Messiah, and Timothy our brother, unto Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellowlabourer
Peter mentions Paul
2 Pet. 3 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
 As also in all his epistles,
Lost epistles of Paul or to Paul
1 Corth. 5  I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:
1 Cor. 7  Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.
1 Cor. 16  And when I come, whomsoever ye shall approve by your letters, them will I send to bring your liberality unto Jerusalem.
2 Cor.3  Do we begin again to commend ourselves? or need we, as some others, epistles of commendation to you, or letters of commendation from you? 7  For though I made you sorry with a letter, I do not repent, though I did repent: for I perceive that the same epistle hath made you sorry, though it were but for a season.
 How that
by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as
I wrote afore in few words,
 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Messiah)
Possible other letters
And I wrote this same unto you, lest,
when I came, I should have sorrow from them of whom I ought to rejoice; having
confidence in you all, that my joy is the joy of you all.
 For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote unto you with many tears; not that ye should be grieved, but that ye might know the love which I have more abundantly unto you.
Pass on Paul's letters, epistles to others
Col. 4  And when this epistle is read among you, cause that it be read also in the church of the Laodiceans; and that ye likewise read the epistle from Laodicea.
1 Thes. 5  I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren
Paul gives his advice
1Cor.7 But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment.
Paul never married -  I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I.
 But to the rest speak I, not the Lord:
 Now concerning virgins I have no commandment of the Lord: yet I give my judgment, as one that hath obtained mercy of the Lord to be faithful.
 And this I speak for your own profit;
 But she is happier if she so abide, after my judgment: and I think also that I have the Spirit of God.
2 Cor. 8  And herein I give my advice: for this is expedient for you, who have begun before, not only to do, but also to be forward a year ago.
Paul had a sister and her son warned Paul
Acts 23  And when Paul's sister's son heard of their lying in wait, he went and entered into the castle, and told Paul.
Acts. 18 Paul  And he came to Ephesus, and left them there: but he himself entered into the synagogue, and reasoned with the Jews.
Acts. 19 [8 ] And he Paul, went into the synagogue, and spake boldly for the space of three months, disputing and persuading the things concerning the kingdom of God .
Acts.9 [20 ] And straightway he ( Paul ) preached Messiah in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God.
Acts.13 [ 1] Now there
were in the church that was at Antioch certain prophets and teachers; as
Barnabas, and Simeon that was called Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manaen, which had been brought up with Herod the
tetrarch, and Saul.
 As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them.
 And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid their hands on them, they sent them away.
 So they, being sent forth by the Holy Ghost, departed unto Seleucia; and from thence they sailed to Cyprus.
 Now when Paul and his company loosed from Paphos, they came to Perga in Pamphylia: and John departing from them returned to Jerusalem.[14 ] But when they departed from Perga, they came to Antioch in Pisidia, and went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and sat down.
 And after the reading of the law and the prophets the rulers of the synagogue sent unto them, saying, Ye men and brethren, if ye have any word of exhortation for the people, say on.
 And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath.
Acts.14 [1 ] And it came to pass in Iconium, that they went both together into the synagogue of the Jews, and so spake, that a great multitude both of the Jews and also of the Greeks believed.
Acts.15 [21 ] For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.
Acts.17 [1 ] Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews:
 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews.
 Therefore disputed he in the synagogue with the Jews, and with the devout persons, and in the market daily with them that met with him.
 And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks.
 And he came to Ephesus, and left them there: but he himself entered into the synagogue, and reasoned with the Jews.
a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an
eloquent man, and mighty in
the scriptures, came to Ephesus.
 This man was instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in the spirit, he spake and taught diligently the things of the Lord, knowing only the baptism of John.
 And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue : whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took him unto them, and expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly.
it came to pass, that, while Apollos
was at Corinth , Paul having passed
through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples,
 He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.
 And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John's baptism.
 Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Messiah Yeshua.
 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Yeshua.
 And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.
 And all the men were about twelve.
 And he went into the synagogue, and spake boldly for the space of three months, disputing and persuading the things concerning the kingdom of God.
Acts.22 [19 ] And I said, Lord, they know that I imprisoned and beat in every synagogue them that believed on thee :
Acts.24 [12 ] And they neither found me in the temple disputing with any man, neither raising up the people, neither in the synagogues, nor in the city:
Some of Paul’s brothers and sister in Messiah he met

Let’s read the last chapter of Acts to conclude Paul’s life
And when they were escaped, then they knew that the island was called Melita.
 And the barbarous people shewed us no little kindness: for they kindled a fire, and received us every one, because of the present rain, and because of the cold.
 And when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks, and laid them on the fire, there came a viper out of the heat, and fastened on his hand.
 And when the barbarians saw the venomous beast hang on his hand, they said among themselves, No doubt this man is a murderer, whom, though he hath escaped the sea, yet vengeance suffereth not to live.
 And he shook off the beast into the fire, and felt no harm.
 Howbeit they looked when he should have swollen, or fallen down dead suddenly: but after they had looked a great while, and saw no harm come to him, they changed their minds, and said that he was a god.
 In the same quarters were possessions of the chief man of the island, whose name was Publius; who received us, and lodged us three days courteously.
 And it came to pass, that the father of Publius lay sick of a fever and of a bloody flux: to whom Paul entered in, and prayed, and laid his hands on him, and healed him.
 So when this was done, others also, which had diseases in the island, came, and were healed:
 Who also honoured us with many honours; and when we departed, they laded us with such things as were necessary.
 And after three months we departed in a ship of Alexandria, which had wintered in the isle, whose sign was Castor and Pollux.
 And landing at Syracuse, we tarried there three days.
 And from thence we fetched a compass, and came to Rhegium: and after one day the south wind blew, and we came the next day to Puteoli:
 Where we found brethren, and were desired to tarry with them seven days: and so we went toward Rome.
 And from thence, when the brethren heard of us, they came to meet us as far as Appiiforum, and The three taverns: whom when Paul saw, he thanked God, and took courage.
 And when we came to Rome, the centurion delivered the prisoners to the captain of the guard: but Paul was suffered to dwell by himself with a soldier that kept him.
 And it came to pass, that after three days Paul called the chief of the Jews together: and when they were come together, he said unto them, Men and brethren, though I have committed nothing against the people, or customs of our fathers, yet was I delivered prisoner from Jerusalem into the hands of the Romans.
 Who, when they had examined me, would have let me go, because there was no cause of death in me.
 But when the Jews spake against it, I was constrained to appeal unto Caesar; not that I had ought to accuse my nation of.
 For this cause therefore have I called for you, to see you, and to speak with you: because that for the hope of Israel I am bound with this chain.
 And they said unto him, We neither received letters out of Judaea concerning thee, neither any of the brethren that came shewed or spake any harm of thee.
 But we desire to hear of thee what thou thinkest: for as concerning this sect, we know that every where it is spoken against.
 And when they had appointed him a day, there came many to him into his lodging; to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Yeshua, both out of the law of Moses, and out of the prophets, from morning till evening.
 And some believed the things which were spoken, and some believed not.
 And when they agreed not among themselves, they departed, after that Paul had spoken one word, Well spake the Holy Ghost by Esaias the prophet unto our fathers,
 Saying, Go unto this people, and say, Hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and not perceive:
 For the heart of this people is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed; lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
 Be it known therefore unto you, that the salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles, and that they will hear it.
 And when he had said these words, the Jews departed, and had great reasoning among themselves.
 And Paul dwelt two whole years in his own hired house, and received all that came in unto him,
 Preaching the kingdom of God, and teaching those things which concern the Lord Yeshua the Messiah, with all confidence, no man forbidding him. Amen
