The Cross of Yeshua our Messiah


Isaiah 52:13–15

He Was Pierced for Our Transgressions


[13] Behold, my Servant shall act wisely;

He shall be high and lifted up,

and shall be exalted.

[14] As many were astonished at you—

His appearance was so marred, beyond human semblance,

and His form beyond that of The Children of Mankind—

[15] so shall He sprinkle many Nations.

Kings shall shut their mouths because of Him,

for that which has not been told them they see,

and that which they have not heard they understand. 


Isaiah 53

[1] Who has believed what he has heard from us?

And to whom has The Arm of the LORD been revealed?

[2] For He grew up before Him like a young plant,

and like a root out of dry ground;

He had no form or majesty that we should look at Him,

and no beauty that we should desire Him.

[3] He was despised and rejected by men,

a Man of Sorrows and acquainted with Grief;

and as one from whom men hide their faces

He was despised, and we esteemed Him not.


[4] Surely He has borne our Griefs

and carried our Sorrows;

yet we esteemed Him stricken,

smitten by God, and afflicted.

[5] But He was pierced for our Transgressions;

He was crushed for our Iniquities;

upon Him was The Chastisement that brought us Peace,

and with His Wounds we are Healed.

[6] All we like sheep have gone astray;

we have turned—every one—to his own way;

and The LORD has laid on Him

the Iniquity of us all.


[7] He was oppressed, and He was afflicted,

yet He opened not His mouth;

like a lamb that is led to the slaughter,

and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent,

so He opened not His mouth.

[8] By oppression and Judgment He was taken away;

and as for His Generation, who considered

that He was cut off out of The Land of The Living, stricken for The Transgression of my People?

[9] And they made His Grave with The Wicked

and with a rich man in His Death,

although He had done no violence,

and there was no deceit in His mouth.


[10] Yet it was The Will of The LORD to crush Him;

He has put Him to Grief;

when His Soul makes an offering for Guilt,

He shall see His Offspring; He shall prolong His Days;

The Will of The LORD shall prosper in His Hand.

[11] Out of The Anguish of His Soul He shall see and be satisfied; by His Knowledge shall The Righteous One, my Servant, make many to be accounted Righteous,

and He shall bear their Iniquities.

[12] Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the Many,

and He shall divide The Spoil with The Strong,

because He poured out His Soul to Death

and was numbered with The Transgressors;

yet He bore The Sin of Many,

and makes intercession for The Transgressors.


Philippians 2:4–11

[4] Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. [5] Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, [6] who, though He was in the Form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, [7] but emptied himself, by taking the form of a Servant, being born in the Likeness of Men. [8] And being found in human form, He humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. [9] Therefore God has highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him The Name that is above every name, [10] so that at The Name of Jesus every knee should bow, in Heaven and on Earth and under the Earth, [11] and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the Glory of God the Father.


Psalm 2:7–12

[7] I will tell of the decree: The LORD said to me, “You are my Son; today I have Begotten you.

[8] Ask of me, and I will make the Nations your Heritage, and the Ends of the Earth your Possession.

[9] You shall break them with a Rod of Iron and dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.”


[10] Now therefore, O Kings, be wise;

be warned, O Rulers of the Earth.

[11] Serve the LORD with fear,

and rejoice with trembling.

[12] Kiss The Son, lest He be angry, and you perish in the way, for His Wrath is quickly kindled. Blessed are all who take refuge in Him.


Psalm 22

(Messiah is also found in this Psalm)


To the choirmaster: according to The Doe of the Dawn. A Psalm of David.

[1] My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?

Why are you so far from saving me, from the words of my groaning?

[2] O my God, I cry by day, but you do not answer,

and by night, but I find no rest.


[3] Yet you are Holy,

enthroned on The Praises of Israel.

[4] In you our Fathers trusted;

they trusted, and you delivered them.

[5] To you they cried and were rescued;

in you they trusted and were not put to shame.


[6] But I am a worm and not a man,

scorned by Mankind and despised by The People.

[7] All who see me mock me;

they make mouths at me; they wag their heads;

[8] “He trusts in The LORD; let Him deliver Him;

let Him rescue Him, for He delights in Him!”


[9] Yet you are He who took me from the womb;

you made me trust you at my mother’s breasts.

[10] On you was I cast from my birth,

and from my mother’s womb you have been my God.            

[11] Be not far from me, for trouble is near, and there is none to help.


[12] Many Bulls encompass me;

strong Bulls of Bashan surround me;

[13] they open wide their mouths at me,

like a ravening and roaring lion.


[14] I am poured out like water,

and all my bones are out of joint;

my heart is like wax;

it is melted within my breast;

[15] my strength is dried up like a potsherd,

and my tongue sticks to my jaws;

you lay me in the dust of death.


[16] For dogs encompass me; a company of evildoers encircles me; they have pierced my hands and feet—

[17] I can count all my bones— they stare and gloat over me;

[18] they divide my garments among them, and for my clothing they cast lots.


[19] But you, O LORD, do not be far off!

O you my help, come quickly to my aid!

[20] Deliver my Soul from the Sword,

my precious life from the power of the Dog!

[21] Save me from the mouth of the Lion!

You have rescued me from the horns of the Wild Oxen!


[22] I will tell of your Name to my Brothers;

in The Midst of The Congregation I will praise you:

[23] You who fear The LORD, praise Him!

All you Offspring of Jacob, glorify Him,

and stand in awe of Him, all you Offspring of Israel!

[24] For He has not despised or abhorred

the affliction of the Afflicted,

and He has not hidden His face from Him,

but has heard, when He cried to Him.


[25] From you comes my praise in The Great Congregation;

my vows I will perform before those who fear Him.

[26] The Afflicted shall eat and be satisfied;

those who seek Him shall praise The LORD!

May your hearts live forever!


[27] All The Ends of The Earth shall remember

and turn to The LORD, and all The Families of The Nations shall worship before you.

[28] For Kingship belongs to The LORD,

and He rules over The Nations.


[29] All the prosperous of The Earth eat and worship;

before Him shall bow all who go down to The Dust,

even The One who could not keep himself alive.

[30] Posterity shall serve Him;

it shall be told of The Lord to The Coming Generation;

[31] they shall come and proclaim His Righteousness to a People yet unborn,

that He has done it. 


The first prophecy discovered about Messiah in the Tanakh (Hebrew Bible):


Genesis 3:15

[15] I will put enmity between you (Satan) and The Woman,

and between your offspring and Her Offspring;

He shall bruise your head,

and you shall bruise His Heel.” (At the Cross)


Amazing Prophetic Proof surrounding Messiah


Isaiah 7:14

[14] Therefore The Lord himself will give you a Sign. Behold, The Virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His Name Immanuel.


Isaiah 9:6–7

[6] For to us a child is born,   -- (This happened in Bethlehem when Messiah was born of The Virgin)

to us a Son is given;                -- (This happened in Golgotha when Messiah died for the Sins of all)

and The Government shall be upon His shoulder, -- (This will happen soon according to Zechariah 12:10)

and His Name shall be called

Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,

Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

[7] Of the Increase of His Government and of Peace

there will be no end,

on The Throne of David and over His Kingdom,

to establish it and to uphold it

with Justice and with Righteousness

from this Time forth and Forevermore.

The Zeal of the LORD of Hosts will do this. 


Zechariah 12:10

Him Whom They Have Pierced

[10] “And I will pour out on The House of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a Spirit of Grace and pleas for mercy, so that, when they look on me, on Him whom they have pierced, they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only child, and weep bitterly over Him, as one weeps over a firstborn. 


2 Corinthians 5:21 (KJV)

For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made The Righteousness of God in Him.


Numbers 21:4–9

The Bronze Serpent

[4] From Mount Hor they set out by the way to the Red Sea, to go around the land of Edom. And the people became impatient on the way. [5] And the people spoke against God and against Moses, “Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no food and no water, and we loathe this worthless food.” [6] Then the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people, so that many people of Israel died. [7] And the people came to Moses and said, “We have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD and against you. Pray to the LORD, that he take away the serpents from us.” So Moses prayed for the people. [8] And the LORD said to Moses, “Make a fiery serpent and set it on a pole, and everyone who is bitten, when he sees it, shall live.” [9] So Moses made a bronze serpent and set it on a pole. And if a serpent bit anyone, he would look at the bronze serpent and live.


John 2:13–25

Jesus Cleanses the Temple

[13] The Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. [14] In the temple he found those who were selling oxen and sheep and pigeons, and the money-changers sitting there. [15] And making a whip of cords, he drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and oxen. And he poured out the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables. [16] And he told those who sold the pigeons, “Take these things away; do not make my Father's house a house of trade.” [17] His disciples remembered that it was written, “Zeal for your house will consume me.”

[18] So the Jews said to him, “What sign do you show us for doing these things?” [19] Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” [20] The Jews then said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will you raise it up in three days?” [21] But he was speaking about the temple of his body. [22] When therefore he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this, and they believed the Scripture and the word that Jesus had spoken.

[23] Now when he was in Jerusalem at the Passover Feast, many believed in His Name when they saw The Signs that He was doing. [24] But Jesus on His part did not entrust Himself to them, because He knew all people [25] and needed no one to bear witness about man, for He Himself knew what was in man. 


John 3:1–21

You Must Be Born Again

[1] Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. [2] This man came to Jesus by night and said to him, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God, for no one can do these signs that you do unless God is with him.” [3] Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” [4] Nicodemus said to him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born?” [5] Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. [6] That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. [7] Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ [8] The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is Born of The Spirit.”

[9] Nicodemus said to him, “How can these things be?” [10] Jesus answered him, “Are you the teacher of Israel and yet you do not understand these things? [11] Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know, and bear witness to what we have seen, but you do not receive our testimony. [12] If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you heavenly things? [13] No one has ascended into heaven except he who descended from heaven, the Son of Man. [14] And as Moses lifted up The Serpent in The Wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, [15] that whoever believes in Him may have Eternal Life.

[16] “For God so loved The World, that He gave His Only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have Eternal Life. [17] For God did not send His Son into The World to condemn The World, but in order that The World might be saved through Him. [18] Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in The Name of The Only Son of God. [19] And this is The Judgment: the Light has come into The World, and people loved The Darkness rather than The Light because their works were evil. [20] For everyone who does wicked things hates The Light and does not come to The Light, lest his works should be exposed. [21] But whoever does what is true comes to The Light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.” 


Galatians 6:14

[14] But far be it from me to boast except in The Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. 


The Purpose of Messiah’s Cross at Calvary?


John 12:27–36

The Son of Man Must Be Lifted Up

[27] “Now is my soul troubled. And what shall I say? ‘Father, save me from this hour’? But for this purpose I have come to this hour. [28] Father, glorify your Name.” Then a voice came from Heaven: “I have glorified it, and I will glorify it again.” [29] The crowd that stood there and heard it said that it had thundered. Others said, “An angel has spoken to Him.” [30] Jesus answered, “This voice has come for your sake, not mine. [31] Now is The Judgment of this World; now will The Ruler of this World be cast out. [32] And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.” [33] He said this to show by what kind of death he was going to die. [34] So the crowd answered him, “We have heard from The Law that The Messiah (Christ) remains forever. How can you say that The Son of Man must be lifted up? Who is this Son of Man?” [35] So Jesus said to them, “The Light is among you for a little while longer. Walk while you have The Light, lest darkness overtake you. The one who walks in The Darkness does not know where he is going. [36] While you have The Light, believe in The Light, that you may become Sons of Light.” When Jesus had said these things, He departed and hid Himself from them.


John 12:44–50

Jesus Came to Save the World

[44] And Jesus cried out and said, “Whoever believes in me, believes not in me but in Him who sent me. [45] And whoever sees me sees Him who sent me. [46] I have come into the world as Light, so that whoever believes in me may not remain in Darkness. [47] If anyone hears my words and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge The World but to save The World. [48] The one who rejects me and does not receive my words has a judge; the word that I have spoken will judge him on The Last Day. [49] For I have not spoken on my own authority, but the Father who sent me has Himself given me a Commandment—what to say and what to speak. [50] And I know that His Commandment is Eternal Life. What I say, therefore, I say as the Father has told me.”


John 3:16 in context with verses 13 through 19;

13And no man hath ascended up to Heaven, but He that came down from Heaven, even The Son of Man which is in Heaven. 14And as Moses lifted up The Serpent in The Wilderness, even so must The Son of Man be lifted up: 15That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have Eternal Life. 16For God so loved The World, that He gave His Only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have Everlasting Life. 17For God sent not His Son into The World to condemn The World; but that The World through Him might be saved. 18He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in The Name of The Only Begotten Son of God. 19And this is The Condemnation, that Light is come into The World, and men loved darkness rather than Light, because their deeds were evil. (KJV)


The work of The Messiah on The Cross did not influence God to love us, did not increase that love by one degree, did not open any Fount of Grace or Mercy in His heart. He had loved us from old eternity and needed nothing to stimulate that love.


The Cross is not responsible for God's love; rather it was His love which conceived The Cross as the one method by which we could be saved. God felt no different toward us after The Messiah had died for us, for in The Mind of God The Messiah had already died before The Foundation of the World. God never saw us except through Atonement.


The human race could not have existed one day in its fallen state had not The Messiah spread His mantle of Atonement over it. And this He did in eternal purpose long ages before they led Him out to die on The Hill above Jerusalem. All God's dealings with man have been conditioned upon The Cross."


-- A.W. Tozer, The Radical Cross: Living the Passion of Christ 


Psalm 110:1–4

[1] The LORD says to my Lord:

Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.”

[2] The LORD sends forth from Zion your mighty scepter. Rule in the midst of your enemies!

[3] Your people will offer themselves freely on the day of your power, in holy garments; from the womb of the morning, the dew of your youth will be yours.

[4] The LORD has sworn and will not change his mind,

You are a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.” 


Open your heart people called by God - "The Lord said to my Lord" (God the Father speaking to God the Son) 


Hebrews 5:5–10

[5] So also Christ did not exalt himself to be made a high priest, but was appointed by him who said to him,

You are my Son, today I have begotten you”;


[6] as he says also in another place,

You are a priest forever, after the order of Melchizedek.


[7] In The Days of His Flesh, Jesus offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to Him who was able to save Him from death, and He was heard because of His reverence. [8] Although He was a Son, He learned obedience through what He suffered. [9] And being made perfect, He became The Source of Eternal Salvation to all who obey Him, [10] being designated by God a High Priest after The Order of Melchizedek. 


Hebrews 9:11–28

Redemption Through the Blood of The Messiah

[11] But when The Messiah appeared as a High Priest of The Good Things that have come, then through The Greater and more Perfect Tent (not made with hands, that is, not of this creation) [12] he entered once for all into The Holy Places, not by means of the blood of goats and calves but by means of His own Blood, thus securing An Eternal Redemption. [13] For if the blood of goats and bulls, and the sprinkling of defiled persons with the ashes of a heifer, sanctify for the purification of the flesh, [14] how much more will The Blood of The Messiah, who through The Eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve The Living God.

[15] Therefore He is The Mediator of A New Covenant, so that those who are Called may receive The Promised Eternal Inheritance, since a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions committed under The First Covenant. [16] For where a will is involved, the death of the one who made it must be established. [17] For a will takes effect only at death, since it is not in force as long as the one who made it is alive. [18] Therefore not even The First Covenant was inaugurated without blood. [19] For when every commandment of The Law had been declared by Moses to all the people, he took the blood of calves and goats, with water and scarlet wool and hyssop, and sprinkled both The Book itself and all The People, [20] saying, “This is The Blood of The Covenant that God commanded for you.” [21] And in the same way he sprinkled with the blood both the tent and all the vessels used in worship. [22] Indeed, under The Law almost everything is purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins.

[23] Thus it was necessary for the copies of The Heavenly Things to be purified with these rites, but The Heavenly Things themselves with better sacrifices than these. [24] For The Messiah has entered, not into holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true things, but into Heaven itself, now to appear in The Presence of God on our behalf. [25] Nor was it to offer himself repeatedly, as the high priest enters the holy places every year with blood not his own, [26] for then He would have had to suffer repeatedly since The Foundation of The World. But as it is, He has appeared once for all at The End of The Ages to put away sin by The Sacrifice of Himself. [27] And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment, [28] so The Messiah, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for Him. 


Hebrews 10:1–31

Messiah’s Sacrifice Once for All

[1] For since The Law has but a shadow of the good things to come instead of the true form of these realities, it can never, by the same sacrifices that are continually offered every year, make perfect those who draw near. [2] Otherwise, would they not have ceased to be offered, since the worshipers, having once been cleansed, would no longer have any consciousness of sins? [3] But in these sacrifices there is a reminder of sins every year. [4] For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.

[5] Consequently, when The Messiah came into the world, he said, “Sacrifices and offerings you have not desired,

but a body have you prepared for me; [6] in burnt offerings and sin offerings you have taken no pleasure.

[7] Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come to do your will, O God, as it is written of Me in The Scroll of The Book.’”


[8] When he said above, “You have neither desired nor taken pleasure in sacrifices and offerings and burnt offerings and sin offerings” (these are offered according to the law), [9] then he added, “Behold, I have come to do your will.” He does away with the first in order to establish the second. [10] And by that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Yeshua The Messiah once for all.

[11] And every priest stands daily at his service, offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. [12] But when The Messiah had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at The Right Hand of God, [13] waiting from that time until his enemies should be made a footstool for His Feet. [14] For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified.

[15] And The Holy Spirit also bears witness to us; for after saying,

[16] “This is The Covenant that I will make with them

after those days, declares the Lord:

I will put my Laws on their hearts,

and write them on their minds,

[17] then he adds,

I will remember their sins and their lawless deeds no more.

[18] Where there is forgiveness of these, there is no longer any offering for sin.

The Full Assurance of Faith

[19] Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter The Holy Places by The Blood of Yeshua, [20] by The New and Living Way that he opened for us through The Curtain, that is, through His Flesh, [21] and since we have a Great Priest over The House of God, [22] let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. [23] Let us hold fast The Confession of Our Hope without wavering, for He who promised is Faithful. [24] And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, [25] not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see The Day drawing near.

[26] For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving The Knowledge of The Truth, there no longer remains a Sacrifice for Sins, [27] but a fearful expectation of Judgment, and a Fury of Fire that will consume The Adversaries. [28] Anyone who has set aside The Law of Moses dies without mercy on the evidence of two or three witnesses. [29] How much worse punishment, do you think, will be deserved by the one who has trampled underfoot the Son of God, and has profaned The Blood of The Covenant by which he was sanctified, and has outraged The Spirit of Grace? [30] For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is mine; I will repay.” And again, “The Lord will judge his people.” [31] It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.


1 Peter 2:21–25

[21] For to this you have been called, because The Messiah also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps. [22] He committed no sin, neither was deceit found in His mouth. [23] When He was reviled, He did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but continued entrusting Himself to Him who judges justly. [24] He himself bore our sins in His body on The Tree, that we might die to sin and live to Righteousness. By His Wounds you have been healed. [25] For you were straying like sheep, but have now returned to The Shepherd and Overseer of your Souls.


1 Peter 3:18

[18] For The Messiah also suffered once for sins, The Righteous for The Unrighteous, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in The Flesh but made alive in The Spirit,...


Romans 6:5–14

[5] For if we have been united with Him in a death like His, we shall certainly be united with Him in a resurrection like His. [6] We know that our old self was crucified with Him in order that The Body of Sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. [7] For one who has died has been set free from sin. [8] Now if we have died with The Messiah, we believe that we will also live with Him. [9] We know that The Messiah, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over Him. [10] For The Death He died He died to sin, once for all, but The Life He lives He lives to God. [11] So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in The Messiah Yeshua.

[12] Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions. [13] Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as Instruments for Righteousness. [14] For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under Law but under Grace. 


Romans 6:20–23

[20] For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to Righteousness. [21] But what fruit were you getting at that time from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. [22] But now that you have been set free from sin and have become Slaves of God, The Fruit you get leads to Sanctification and its end, Eternal Life. [23] For The Wages of Sin is Death, but The Free Gift of God is Eternal Life in The Messiah Yeshua our Lord. 


Isaiah 48:12–21

[12] “Listen to me, O Jacob,

and Israel, whom I called!

I am He; I am The First,

and I am The Last.

[13] My hand laid The Foundation of The Earth,

and my Right Hand spread out The Heavens;

when I call to them,

they stand forth together.


[14] “Assemble, all of you, and listen!

Who among them has declared these things?

The LORD loves Him;

He shall perform His purpose on Babylon,

and His arm shall be against the Chaldeans.

[15] I, even I, have spoken and called Him;

I have brought Him, and He will prosper in His Way.

[16] Draw near to me, hear this:

from the beginning I have not spoken in secret,

from the time it came to be I have been there.”And now the Lord GOD has sent me, and His Spirit.   

{God is 3 in 1} — Read Genesis 1:26


[17] Thus says the LORD,

your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel:

“I AM The LORD your God,

who teaches you to profit,

who leads you in The Way you should go.

[18] Oh that you had paid attention to my commandments!

Then your peace would have been like a river,

and your righteousness like the waves of the sea;

[19] your offspring would have been like the sand,

and your descendants like its grains;

their name would never be cut off

or destroyed from before me.”


[20] Go out from Babylon, flee from Chaldea,

declare this with a shout of joy, proclaim it,

send it out to the end of the earth;

say, “The LORD has redeemed his servant Jacob!”

[21] They did not thirst when He led them through the deserts;

He made water flow for them from The Rock;

He split The Rock and the water gushed out.


Mark 12:28–34

The Great Commandment

[28] And one of the scribes came up and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, asked him, “Which commandment is the most important of all?” [29] Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is One. [30] And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ [31] The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” [32] And the scribe said to him, “You are right, Teacher. You have truly said that he is one, and there is no other besides him. [33] And to love him with all the heart and with all the understanding and with all the strength, and to love one’s neighbor as oneself, is much more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.” [34] And when Jesus saw that he answered wisely, he said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” And after that no one dared to ask him any more questions.

Deuteronomy 6:4

[4] “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is One.

In Hebrew it reads, “YHWH(Adonai) our Elohim [Gods in plural sense] is Echad [One] YHWH(Adonai).” Echad signifies a unity of more than one. It is used in Genesis 2:24, where man and woman become one flesh; in Exodus 36:13, when the various parts “became one tabernacle”; in 2 Samuel 2:25, when many soldiers “became one troop,” and elsewhere.

Yeshua himself declared the following to His Disciples in John 14:8–11:

[8] Philip said to him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.” [9] Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? [10] Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority, but the Father who dwells in me does his works. [11] Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me, or else believe on account of the works themselves. 


Colossians 1:15–23

Messiah’s Preeminence

[15] He is The Image of The Invisible God, The Firstborn of all Creation. [16] For by Him all things were created, in Heaven and on Earth, Visible and Invisible, whether Thrones or Dominions or Rulers or Authorities—all things were created through Him and for Him. [17] And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. [18] And He is The Head of The Body, The Church. He is The Beginning, The Firstborn from The Dead, that in everything He might be preeminent. [19] For in Him all The Fullness of God was pleased to dwell, [20] and through Him to reconcile to Himself all things, whether on Earth or in Heaven, making peace by The Blood of His Cross.

[21] And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, [22] He has now reconciled in His Body of Flesh by His death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before Him, [23] if indeed you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from The Hope of The Gospel that you heard, which has been proclaimed in all Creation under Heaven, and of which I, Paul, became a minister.


John 8:58

[58] Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.”


Malachi 4:2

But for you who fear my Name, The Sun of Righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. You shall go out leaping like calves from the stall.
