Today’s Topic:


Adding to the Word

Deut.4 [2] You shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall you diminish ought from it, that you may keep the commandments of Yehovah your God which I command you.


Different bible versions again

Nothing new, same old thing, repackaged (which is exactly the same things from the past) J


I still can’t understand why anyone would try to create a new bible version when the score has been settled centuries ago.

The people, from the past, had the actual manuscripts and were fluent in Hebrew and Koine Greek, which does not exist today.


Whatever the archeologists of today find is of no value today when it comes to different writings.


All the information below is from the net


Today we shall look up on the net the Eth Cepher Bible.

I do believe people have good intentions and are sincere. However they are sincerely wrong and in error.


Let’s review:

The eth Cepher Bible has 87 books (full of Pseudepigrapha books)

Full list below:

A shot list:

Sets forth a transliteration, rather than a substitution, of the names of the Father (Yahuah), Son (Yahusha) and Holy Spirit (Ruach HaQodesh).

Transliterates over 3100 other Hebrew names and places.


Looks like (Nazi) Kittle’s Theological dictionary of the New Testament again:

They say, Restores the Aleph Tav (את) more than 1400 times; previously omitted in other English translations.


They say - includes all of the 81 books, plus another 6 books considered to be inspired and/or historically significant:


Chanok (Enoch)

Yovheliym (Jubilees) from the Dead Sea Scrolls

Yashar (Jasher)

4 Ezra,

2 Baruk (Baruch)

Hadaccah (Additions to Esther),

for a total of 87 books.


They say:


Restores an accurate order to the books as they were originally written.


Corrects many notorious errors found in virtually all previous English translations, such as Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 14, Zakaryahu (Zechariah) 5, and Mattithyahu (Matthew) 23.


Restores Chapters 151-155 of Tehilliym (Psalms).


Restores the Missing Fragment of 70 verses in 4 Ezra Chapter 7


Restores the 29th chapter of Ma’asiym (The Acts of the Apostles)

chronicling Pa’al’s (Paul’s) journey to Spain and Britain.


Some of the Hebrew Roots Movement (white or black) teach that the Apocrypha and the Pseudepigrapha (especially the Book of Enoch and the Book of Jasher) even though they contradict the Bible.

Some of them don’t believe in the writings of Paul.

Some of them also believe that there is no heaven or hell.

Some of them affirm that Jesus was black. 

Some say, all Israel are black people


From the net:

The Cepher is a non-scholarly book based on information provided by its own publishers.

The authors added the books that were not part of the Bible which contradicts the truths of the Scriptures. Therefore, it is not a reliable source of information.  

From their website:

Most of our work was transliteration, rather than translation.

The translations were accomplished through Strong's concordance, with cross references to other translation software programs, to the extent that translation was used. 

We relied on existing English translations which were in the public domain (Tyndale, the 1611 KJV, the Stephanus Textus Receptus, and the Masoretic Hebrew) as foundational texts.

New translations were had only in a few locations: the Song of Solomon, and Zechariah 5 are the two major departures, and they were derived from the Masoretic text.

The conclusion concerning Matthew 1 was done in accord with Peshita, and the conclusion in Matthew 23 was first reached by Nechemiah  Gordon (a well known Karaite that does not believe in Messiah Yeshua as God in the flesh) in reliance on the Shem Tov gospel of Matthew. (poisen)

This project has been a labor of love that originated from a genuine calling by Yahuah and the guidance of the Ruach Ha'Qodesh;

neither of which required a specialized degree from a theological seminary or a Hebrew university.

In truth, Yahuah has long been using similarly uncredentialed men and women to accomplish his kingdom purposes, so it should come as no surprise to anyone that he has once again done so in choosing us to publish the את Cepher scriptures.

Of course, the את Cepher isn’t our only work, as we have gathered some of the other writings which typically do not appear in any single collection of sacred scripture: writings like the Shepherd of Hermas, the Didache, the Ascents of James, the Books of Adam and Eve, the Testimony of Moses and so on. 

Either way, you will find exciting new discussions concerning the age-old stories you might remember: stories about the sacrifice of Isaac (Yitshaq), or the loss of Joseph (Yoceph), the dream of Abraham (Avraham), or the work of Ezra in securing the word.  In addition, because the Eth Cepher includes the books of the Maccabees (Makkabiym) you can also see what happened to the prophecy given in Daniel 11.  

Of course, we all remember the crazy questions which no one could answer; questions like who did Cain marry and so onThe book of Jubilees comes in and answers those questions with details that will surprise you.  Once you’ve read it, you will have that sense of satisfaction that now, you finally know the answer!

Look familiar to the books below, yes.


The Hebrew language:

אֵת 'eth {ayth} sign of the definite direct object

Meaning: sign of the definite direct object, not translated in English but generally preceding and indicating the accusative, simply used to point out more definitely the object of a verb or preposition


Spurious - false or fake

Pseudepigrapha (also as "pseudepigraph" or "pseudepigraphs") are falsely attributed works, texts whose claimed author is not the true author, or a work whose real author attributed it to a figure of the past.

In biblical studies, the term pseudepigrapha refers to an assorted collection of religious works thought to be written c. 300 BCE to 300 CE.

They are distinguished by Protestants from the deuterocanonical books (by the Catholic church) or Apocrypha ('hidden') (by non Catholics), the books that appear in extant copies of the Septuagint in the fourth century or later and the Vulgate, but not in the Hebrew Bible or in Protestant Bibles

The Catholic Church distinguishes only between the deuterocanonical and all other books; the latter are called biblical apocrypha, which in Catholic usage includes the pseudepigrapha.

In addition, two books considered canonical in the Orthodox Tewahedo churches, the Book of Enoch and Book of Jubilees, are categorized as pseudepigrapha from the point of view of many historians in biblical studies.

In the land of pseudepigrapha books, there are many to choose from.


Check this list out:


Below are some of the most common Pseudepigraphal books you might hear today:


Apocalypse of Abraham

The Apocrypha was included in the Septuagint, a Greek translation of the Old Testament, and in the Vulgate Bible . The Roman Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox Church, and a few other groups regard the Apocrypha as Scripture but other churches say they are not inspired.

These works are not considered historically accurate

These books don’t teach the same things or theme as Scripture

There’s a line of verification from the Old Testament to the New Testament

Our Bible, the KJV dovetails all the way through.

The canonical books of the Old Testament were verified over and over again by the Jews and biblical scholars. 

The “later Gospels” had been treated almost by everyone as false for centuries, and the same thing applied to the older Pseudepigrapha books.



I never met Mr. Gorgon, probably a nice man, but Nechemiah Gordon, is a well known Karaite (does not believe in Messiah Yeshua as God in the flesh) in reliance on the Shem Tov gospel of Matthew, (which is poison).

Read below:


You can look all this up yourselves…


In closing,

Nothing new, same old thing, repackaged, adding and diminishing from the actual Word of God

Oh well,

by the way, the Maccabees was preserved by the Catholic church because it has “praying for the dead” in it.
