There are a number of circular words; especially in the Old Testament. For instance gray only comes from dust and dust only comes from gray. What comes from that circular root is very interesting….not the subject of today’s blog.
Point being when we slog around in the words used in the KJB or any other interpretation called Bible; we circulate in the same old view point. Come up with the same old conclusions. Arrive at the same old religious myths. And do not have a clue what the voices of the original authors were trying to convey.
Remember there are no TRANSLATIONS only interpretations. Interpretations based upon the learned church fathers of their day. We have had the resource to delve deeper into the unique language. The unique language formed when combining written documents ranging from 1845BC to 70AD into one book called Bible.
Documents scribed by a variety of pens held by a variety of authors. In a variety of places. Presumably men. Maybe those men understood something; men of today do not. I assume male persons as female persons were not deemed to have the ability to think nor reason and therefore could not write.
Question is why have the learned church fathers not given us, today, the ability to truly use and understand the JSE. A rich research project in the mid 1800s that involved perhaps 100 scholars seeking to give us a new tool to use. Perhaps themselves wanting to know what the original authors actually wrote.
Now the Bible is the property of the pubic except in England where the English crown owns the rights to the Bible. I can only assume that the crown gave permission to the scholars to delve into the original text. They gave us a vast array of knowledge. It is cumbersome to use.
However in the mid 1800s the only way to document anything was by pen on paper. The documentation of their work has been around for almost a hundred years. Printed over and over again. Found in most places where the Bible is found, schools, offices, homes, churches, etc.
We have had the ability to produce a more user friendly way of using the JSE for a long..Instead of f doing that, the church fathers or their representatives simply alter the JSE by removing the number references to words they deem in their esteemed estimation are simple English words everybody understands.
For instance removing the number references to the word THIS did in fact erase a fast amount of information. Three forms of the word interpreted as THIS are in fact the three forms of words neutral, masculine, feminine. Each one appears more than 400 times in the 1940 edition of the JSE. The THIS and THIS forms function like the English word THIS. However the THIS literally means SHEEP. A vast amount of information and details about the original text THIS SHEEP is lost due to this one example.
No wonder religious followers are referred to as dumb sheep. They have no voice. Sheep follow whoever is out in front; deeming that one to know where they are going. Sheep will follow anybody even over the cliff to their death.
But of course, the promise is die and then go to heaven to nirvana to flat line. Same circular motion as dust from gray from dust from gray. Sheep following the leader, the leader following the sheep, etc. etc. etc. all going over the cliff of religious myths. The leader always starting with the English words of the Bible….a futile effort in reclaiming the voices of the original authors.
Why have the learned church fathers not given us an easy to use version of the JSE. ANSWER it would destroy the foundation upon which the church is founded’ the solid rock Petra. Which is not what the original text say…..it says upon an open pile of rocks the church is being built. That open pile of rocks is the earth itself; not some man made structure called a cathedral, church, synagogue, ashram, temple or any other man made structure.
A structure designed to exalt the leadership and divide the sheep. A wall of division built upon a sterile, impregnable rock.
Words are the ingredients of myths, stories, legends, history documentation, newspaper accounts, books, etc.
The way the ingredients are put together determines what the end product looks like. Flour, sugar, baking powder, water, eggs are ingredients….only some of the ingredients of a finished product called cake. If something is left out it becomes a flat cake, a pancake.
If something is added then it becomes another finished product; a puffed up product with lots of fancy ingredients like nuts, fruit, flavors, etc.
So it is with the Bible. Two thirds of the volume are words added to describe the myths. This changes the original 66 stories. The remaining 1/3 are words of the original text. Of that 1/3 there are many repetitions of word that mean the same. However since these words have NOT BEEN TRANSLATED they often are interpreted as something quite different from the true meanings.
These words are groups of transliterated letters which represent the original word; but in of themselves are not English words.
The new Strong Bridge Database gives us the ability to pull out these groups of letters that share common meanings. Allows us to see the time frame and the place of the writing and see the evolutionary change in the transliterated groups of letters. We see that although the transliterated groups of letters are different…the meaning has not changed.
Fire means fire no matter what language it is transliterated from or transliterated into. It does not mean water or eggs or chickens; these symbols simply represent fire.
The Strong Bridge Database allows us to reclaim the original 66 stories and see they are no so different. They are the view of creation described in the 66 stories by the various authors.
The creation story reduced down to human terms invalidates the intent of the original authors. It is time to reclaim the ingredients, the words and their true meanings. Time to reclaim the beauty, the majesty and the glory of creation. Time to rewrite the original 66 texts.
Who wants to join this celebration party of reclamation? The word trees grow from a common root. The tree produces fruit of its own kind. Apples do not grow on a grape vine. Water does not grow on fire tree
existent open wide free dog (star) descended.
versus the Bible story about 2 men Joshua and Caleb who crossed the Jordan River
The dog star, the sun star, was renamed Serius by the Greeks and the Bible interpreters called it Caleb. All English renditions of the Bible state they are translated from the KING JAMES BIBLE according to the GREEK.
The original stories were not written Greek. They were written, mostly in Hebrew with words from the languages of Babylonian, Chaldean, Hebrew, Aramaic, Egyptian, Persian and a variety of other languages; some unidentified.
So let us look at another story about the existent open wide free dog (star) from the original text..
existent open wide free builds perpetuity….dog(star) builds, (what) will be prepared
vs Joshua the son of Nun….Caleb the son of Jephunneh.
Which view the original text or the religious myth view gives us the most information? Let us look at a specific scripture.
Numbers 26:65 For the LORD had said of them, They shall surely die in the wilderness. And there was not left a man of them, save…Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun.
If the existent open wide free dog(star) was all that was left….then there was still the sun in the heavens.
- If Caleb and Joshua were the only human male beings left….how did they reproduce themselves?
- How do two male persons bring forth life? In order to answer this question; other myths have to be created to substantiate the religious myth that the existent open wide free dog(star) was two male persons.
What if we use the original viewpoint and let the words of the original text tell us their stories? Instead of the long held religious viewpoint that existed long before the first Bible was released to the general public. Evidences exist all over the world’ cathedrals, monasteries with depictions of Crucifixions built long before the Bible was developed for the masses.
The Bible was simply a way to reinforce the long held religious beliefs and a way to keep the masses aligned with those beliefs….saying this book is the WORD OF GOD and MUST BE OBEYED. Question is which God? Whose God?
Thus 1100+ interpretations of the Bible trying to figure out how to obey something that seems so contrary. Something that is interpreted by thousands of different denominations and non-denominations, as well as the general public. None agreeing with each other; just what we are to obey.
The new database will make this a much simpler task. The information at the back of the James Strong Exhaustive Concordance, the numbering reference system is being brought into a a different format….same information….just much simpler, faster and easier to use than the hard copy.
Everyone can search for themselves and decide what they choose to believe….the long held religious myths about human beings or the beautiful stories about creation and its processes.
This database does not replace the hard copy; but is an addendum to it, to facilitate an easier way to explore, so each one can come to their own conclusions. There is only one of us. one human race; time for us to get it together. Not as clones; but as beautiful individual expressions of creation. Everything is our elder and we the little kid on the block have much to learn.
We will be able to pull up all sorts of data, such as the primitive root words and see what grows on them. Compare them at a glance. We will not find oranges growing on grape vines; nor apples on a cherry tree.
For the first time we will be able to pull up all of the unused root words; which were not assigned a number by the JSE team; but were identified and the meanings of those unused root words was given. Now they can be broken out and see what grows on them.
We will be able to pull out all of the puncturedfemale and rememberedmale words and see they gave absolutely nothing to do with gender. Have everything to do with form and function and how the authors used the same words in different ways.
There are not many words in the original texts; just a lot of repetitions…these can now be reduced down into a simple dictionary of the simple meanings of the original text.
Real is Better Than Nice
The religious world taught me I had to be a NICE GIRL, a NICE WOMAN, a NICE PERSON, a NICE WIFE because of my gender. Don’t rock the boat, BE NICE.
Religion did not teach me to be REAL only NICE. I have decided not to be NICE but to be REAL. I am not sure what that means, but the intent is set.
What prompted this intent to change was the retrospect look at the day when the local pastor told me not to call the Bible stories myths.
I made no response outwardly, but inwardly I agreed to be NICE. Examining that day made me see that doing so was not a request, it was an ORDER. The pastor was ordering me to do something.
Ingrained in my human psyche was the concept of not having a choice. The pastor ordered, so I must obey. Still believing I had no head of my own, no ability to think and reason for myself. My head still belonged to that religious entity.
The past 25 years of my life has been a quest to discover the UNCONDITIONAL LOVE of a God that the religious world told me about. Yet always demanded, ordered me to do something that fit their laws, their conditions. I had no choice in the matter except to be NICE and do what I was told.
I am here to tell the world I have no intention of being NICE at the cost being REAL.
Anybody out there have a clue what that looks like? How does one rock the boat and not tip it over?
