Topic 1

Jeremiah warned of the destruction of Damascus adding, "who shall appoint me a time”? At the same time, Jeremiah indicates the Syrian ruler, called ‘a lion’, will attack Israel by coming down the Jordan River.

The 1Qm War Scroll features ‘the appointed time’ and connects it to a Jubilee year. The Rabbi's had pointed to the date of March 20-21, 2015 as a Jubilee, which would have fit the rule of Bashur Al Assad, whose name means Lion. However, nothing happened on those predicted dates. Since the next Jubilee year would have to be 50 years after the 2015 date, it would be too late for Assad to fulfill the prophecies.

What if the Rabbis had chosen the wrong date?

Isaiah 29 predicts the same war and notes it will be important for the rulers of Jerusalem to re-think the years and times of their festivals.

  • "Woe, O Ariel, Ariel the city where David once camped! Add year to year; observe your feasts on schedule." 

Josephus indicated 27AD was the last Jubilee year celebrated.

  • “572 BCE (the time of Ezekiel's vision) and the Jubilee year that marked the commencement of Jesus' ministry occurred in pace with a period that encompassed 12 jubilee cycles or 600 years. Antiquities, 1, 3:9. (This 'great cycle' is equal to 12 jubilee cycles).” 

 This claim projects out to the coming of the true next Jubilee to the date of 2028 AD. (Plus or minus a year due to a possible , '0' year). If the 1QM.War Scroll is right, the Sabbatical year before the Jubilee (2027AD) (Plus or minus a year )may be indicated as the set time for a coming war. A time that still would logically fit timing for the rule of Assad.


Topic 2

Daniel the prophet was given information to be "sealed up until the time of the end." In those days scrolls were sealed up in Jars and given to the Priests of Israel. The Zadokite Priests were the leaders of the Essene group that preserved the information sealed up in jars including but not limited to, ‘The Vision of Daniel’. The lineage of how the scrolls were passed down is included in the scrolls themselves was given in death bed testimonies of the Patriarchs beginning with Enoch then on to Shem, Abraham, Jacob, Levi, Kohath, Amran and finally Moses.

The Assumption of Moses includes the death bed testimony of Moses, commanding the preservation of scrolls to be placed in earthen vessels.

  • “And receive this writing that you may know how to preserve the books which I shall deliver unto you: and you shall set these in order and anoint them with oil of cedar and put them away in earthen vessels…”


Topic 3

Discovered near Lake Tiberius in 1882 it is also called the Safed Scroll by Russian Physician D.B.Waltoff. In 1882 a scroll was found and dated to be written seven years after the death of Jesus. This scroll declares that Jesus was the 'Teacher of Righteousness' of the Essenes and was raised by them.

Since the Dead Sea scrolls have been found and analyzed, we can discern that this historical fact is true. The Scroll is the earliest copy of the Toledot Yeshu legends and proves the traditional teachings of the Christian New Testament are true. These facts will now allow Ephraim and Judah to no longer hate one another, as it proves Jesus was the true Messiah of the Zadokite priesthood of Israel, and dispels the analysis basis that has caused hatred in times past.


Toledot Yeshu legends are part of a Midrashic literature concerning Jesus and are said to be from 300-700 AD. Parts of this material has found its way into the Talmud and Midrash. It was always believed to have an earlier origin. Miriam gave birth to Yeshua, whose name later depreciated to Yeshu. Whatever else might be said of this literature, it is evident that several historical references to Jesus were closely paralleled in the Christian New Testament, such as the following:

  • Using God's name he healed a lame man, they worshipped him as the Messiah.
  • Vinegar was given to him to drink and a crown of thorns was put on his head.
  • He entered Jerusalem riding on an ass but one of his followers, Judah Iskarioto (Judas Iscariot), told the sages he was in the Temple.
  • On a day before the Passover, they tried to hang him on a tree.
  • His followers on Sunday told…that he was not in his grave, that he ascended to heaven as he had prophesied.
  • When old enough, she took him to study the Jewish tradition. He … proclaimed himself the Messiah, claiming Isaiah's "a virgin shall conceive and bear a son" and other prophets prophesied about him.


Topic 4

This Scroll in the Dead Sea scrolls, as it uses an unusual phrase; "He raised them up a teacher of righteousness". Since one raises up a child, this connects to;

  • Isaiah 11:6 KJV … and a little child shall lead them.

This little child had to have experience with a viper as history records Jesus did.


Josephus records that Onias II (some say IV) went to Cleo II and Ptolomy IV requesting 5 cities in Egypt. Over 100,000 Jews went to the five cities to fulfill the prophecy.

  • Isaiah 19 In that day five cities in the land of Egypt will be speaking the language of Canaan (Hebrew) and swearing allegiance to the LORD of hosts; one will be called the City of the Sun…"
  • It was established for the worship of ‘God the most High’, as that at Jerusalem (Ant., 13:62–68).
  • Isaiah 19:19 In that day shall there be an altar to the Lord in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the Lord.20 And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the Lord of hosts in the land of Egypt: for they shall cry unto the Lord because of the oppressors, and he shall send them a Saviour, and a great one and he shall deliver them…Then the Lord will be known to Egypt, and the Egyptians will know the Lord.

It is evident that Onias II (Israel's Ousted High Priest) believed this was the time, 'God the most High', would send them a 'saviour, and a great one'. Records show that Jesus as a baby became known as this 'great one' and became known in all of Egypt.


Topic 5

This Dead Sea Scroll begins;

  • “The heavens and the earth will listen to His Messiah.”

We know that Jesus (Y'shua) was referred to as the Messiah, and of him, it was said;

  • "What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him"(Matt 8:27 KJV.)

4Q521 continues;

  • “…the Lord shall do glorious things that have never been done, just as he said. For he will heal the wounded, resurrect the dead, and proclaim glad tiding to the poor.”

Luke 7:22-23 and Matthew 11:4-5 did the same glorious things and then said so. John the Baptist messengers were sent to see if Jesus was the Messiah, they questioned.

  • “Art thou he that should come?”

Jesus answered;

  • “Go and report to John what you have seen and heard: the blind receive sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, the poor have the glad tiding preached to them.”
