The Nazarene Way of Essenic Studies
~ Essene Version of Genesis 1:1 ~


Most Bible-believing “Fundamentalist” and “Evangelical” Christians have been instilled with a deep emotional fear of questioning their churches’ doctrines, even if some of them don’t make sense. Furthermore, whenever someone suggests that early-church Fathers built the foundations of their Church on Paul’s claims about Jesus, rather than the teachings of Jesus, the orthodox “Protector Priests and Preachers” unleash warnings of “Lucifer,” “Satan,” and “The Antichrist.” This method of evangelization is especially powerful when used on young, impressionable children.


As a result of these terrorizing tactics, most of the “Faithful” are unaware of the results of scholarly investigations into the history of the Bible and the history of Christianity. If they are aware of them, but they don’t agree with what they’ve been taught, they reject them out of fear of eternal damnation. And because they’ve been told not to question the authority of preacher-interpreted doctrines, most are unaware that the Hebrew Bible was written in all consonants, no vowels, and no spaces between words.


For example, in Biblical Hebrew Genesis 1:1 looks something like this:

בראשית ברא אלהים את השמים ואת הארץ׃

Biblical Hebrew is read from right to left:



Reversed, as we would read and interpret them, the Orthodox version of these consonants is:

BRST     BR      LHM       T  HSSMYM     WT     H    RS

BeResiT BaRa eLoHiM eT HaSSMYiM We-eT Ha eReS

Translated: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”


Now, let’s play a word game and try to make different Hebrew words out of these same consonants.


Game Rules: The consonants must remain stationary. All that can be done is what was done in the ancient past: insert different vowels and change the location of spaces. We’ll go first:




BeReSiT = “In the beginning”

aB oR = “Father Light”

BaRa = “created”

BaR = “Son of”

oR = “light”

iS = “man” (or “humankind”)

iSTa = “Morning Star”

eLoaH = “God”

eLoHiM = “Gods” (the iM suffix creates a plural)

eL Ha eM = “El the Mother”

LeHeM = “bread”

Ha iSSaMyiM = “the heavens”

Ha iSSa eMyiM = “the women mothers”

Ha eReS = “the earth”

Ha oR iS = “the light men”


What this means is that the Hebrew consonants that open the Hebrew Bible can say something quite different than, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth...” And the "unorthodox interpretation" is equally valid!


BaR iS eT aB oR eL Ha eM eT Ha iSSa eMYiM We-eT Ha oR iS

“Son of Man, Father Light, El the Mother, the women mothers, the light men...”


According to the evidence collected and reported by Essene scholars Gott and Licht, the "orthodox interpretation" was composed by YaH WeH for the YaH udeans, modern spelling, “Judeans” (see Exodus 34:1; the word translated “LORD” is YHWH). 


The unorthodox but equally valid interpretation was composed by LHM for the Is oR eL ites (alternative spelling “Israelites” (see Exodus 31:18; 32:26; the word interpreted as “God” is LHM, and as shown above, LHM is either “Gods,” “bread,” or “El the Mother,” but “God” is LH (eLoaH); therefore LHM is not the word for "God."


Jesus spoke to "The Twelve and the others around him." This does not include Paul!


"The secret of the kingdom of LHM has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables.’” Mark 4:10-11


Which version of Genesis 1:1 was "The Secret of LHM" that Jesus shared with only "The Twelve and the others around him"?


"'Abba, Abba,’” he said, ‘everything is possible for you…'" (Mark 14:36).

"… Jesus cried out in a loud voice, 'Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachth ani…'" (Mark 15:34).


Jesus did not cry out to the Judeans' "YHWH"! In his native tongue, Jesus cried out to Abba” and “Eloi.” Translated into English, Abba is Hebrew for “Father” and Eloi is the proper name, “El.” And whether "El" refers to "eLoaH" or to "eL Ha eM," this climactic scene proves that Jesus was an Israelite. However - and this is incredibly important - it does not say he rejected Judeans. In fact, his purpose was to restore the "Daughter of El the Mother" (BaT eL Ha eM), the "Virgin Mother" (BeTuLaH eM), the "House of Bread" (BeT LeHeM) to the throne and to peacefully unite Israelites, Judeans, and the entire Roman Empire. The Love exemplified by The Nazarean and The Magdalene was Universal, and Their Love and acceptance was extended to all:


The spirit and his Bride say, "Come."

And let everyone who hears say, "Come."

And let everyone who is thirsty come.

Let anyone who wishes take the Water of Life as a gift.

Rev 22:16
