Nature of Christ
The philosophical argument over the true Christology of the "Nature of Christ" has acted to divide Christians for ages; and yet the Nazarani, who's religion isn't philosophical but spiritual instead rely on the actual Biblical understanding of the Nature of Christ.
If you’re unaware of the history of the Nature of Christ argument, then there are a few things you should know first, in order to fully understand the problem:
(1.) The ‘argument’ between the Monophysites, the Nestorians, and the Eastern Orthodox as to what the “True Nature of Christ” is was based on philosophical arguments which are not found anywhere in the scriptures. (2.) Millions of people have been murdered and exiled as the result of this argument.
However, the entire philosophical argument over which these groups have persecuted and killed each other ends up being pointless, in the face of the simple explanation which is found in the scriptures.
There are a few Aramaic words which must be understood before undertaking to understand the nature of Christ as it is revealed in the scriptures.
<>“In the beginning was the Miltha, and the Miltha was with God and God was that Miltha.” [John 1:1]
ܡܠܬܐ (Miltha) is an Aramaic idiom meaning simultaneously, ‘word’, ‘manifestation’, ‘instance’ or ‘substance’…
John then tells us that God had existed in the world before Christ’s birth, but that the world did not know Him. [John 1:10] This of course can be no God other than YAH, since it was YAH (YHVH in Hebrew) who is the creator of the world.
YHWH is written as יהוה in Hebrew and sometimes in a short form Yah יה (yud-heh) appearing in places like Psalm 68:5 or as part of a compound Hebrew name like ירמיה (Yërëmyäh).
The Aramaic “MarYAH” is the emphatic form of the Aramaic theonym combining the words “Mar”, which means “Lord” and the word “YAH”, which is the abbreviated Aramaic form of the Hebrew Name of God, “YHWH”. The name YAH comes from the ancient Sumerian “EA” means "Life", and is derived from the Semitic root HYY "life", which can also mean "spring" or "running water", as in to say the “Fountain of Life”.
His Name is basically the singular, third person, masculine form of the verb HAYA, "to be". At the burning bush, He told Moses that His Name was "I AM", then He said His Name was "YHWH" (Ex.3:14-15). These are not separate Names, they are the same - He says "I AM", we say "HE IS"!
“And we saw His glory, as the glory of the Ichidaya Who is of the Father Who is full of grace and truth.” [John 1:14] And no one can say YHWH is Y’shua (MarYah huwa Ieshu - [wvy wh ayrm) but by the Ruha aQdosh. (Here in Corinthians, it refers NOT to the Holy spirit, but to Prophecy. Thus, we who acknowledge the mission of Christ are ALL prophets.) - Aramaic 1 Corinthians 12:3
“Jesus said to him, The first of all commandments is, Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is one MarYAH” (Mark 12:29) “He said to them, How is it then that David through the spirit calls him Lord God MarYAH?” (Matthew 22:43) “For God sent the word to the children of Israel, preaching peace and tranquility by Jesus Christ; he is the MarYAH of all.” (Acts 10:36) “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the MarYAH” (Luke 2:11) “That no man can say that Jesus is the MarYAH but by the Holy Spirit.” (1st Corinthians 12:3)
That Jesus is literally an incarnation of Life is not in question. “So you may know that I AM THE LIVING GOD”, as a stand alone statement occurs five times in Yohannan (John): ( 8:24,28; 13:19, 18:6,8).
Hundreds of soldiers who had come to arrest him were knocked down backwards when Yeshua answered with this two word phrase! This is testament to the fact that it meant more than, “It is I”; much more!
Combining the 30 occurrences of his statements- “I AM THE LIVING GOD”, with at least 32 places where Yeshua (Jesus) is named “THE LORD JEHOVAH” (or “YAHWEH”, if you prefer), yields 62 testimonies to The absolute Deity of The Messiah Yeshua in The Peshitta Aramaic New Testament not to be found in the Greek New Testament.
By removing the name “MarYAH” and replacing it with their pagan "Chrestos" the Greeks effectively stripped Jesus of His divinity, and their own ability to comprehend what is maybe the most basic point of christology, that "... all of the House of Israel should know that this Yeshua, whom you crucified, is מריא and the anointed one." - Acts 2:36 That He is literally YHVH, the God of the Jews, incarnate in the flesh as a human man.
