It is helpful to see how those outside the Christian faith tradition perceive the foundational documents of our faith. To read Martin's complete essay, click here.

The earliest MSS of Matthew (included in NT) can be used to learn the following.

Ribi Yehoshua, was according to a logical analysis of the earliest manusscripts (including the logical implications of Dead Sea Scroll 4Q MMT, which demonstrates that the Jewish community (this does not include Hellenist “Jews” as Paul) were fully dedicated to Torah, a Torah-practising Yehudi (hellenized to “Jew”)) of what later was redacted to “Matthew”, who all his life practised Torah (the instructions of the Creator found in Tan’’kh (the Jewish Bible)) non-selectively.

Using logic and science reconstructing Matityahu, leads to the conclusions and the reconstruction of the text found in “The Netzarim Reconstruction of Hebrew Matityahu” (found in the website Netzarim).
