This piece has no comments allowed aside from private Notes, it simply means far too much to me personally to have it suffer any comments that aren't genuinely inspired, below I will explain why.

I once showed a certain Orthodox Jew the fact that in his Hebrew Bible the prophet Daniel states that the messiah would appear before the destruction of The Temple, which at the time Daniel wrote his prophecies the Temple had already been destroyed... so Daniel predicted it would be rebuilt and destroyed again... BUT... he states specifically that The Messiah (using that word) would appear and be put to death BEFORE the Temple would be destroyed yet again.

Then I had this highly decorated war veteran Orthodox Jew who lost both legs as a chopper pilot in his 4th tour of Nam to read from my own Hebrew Bible in Hebrew out loud starting in Isaiah 52:6 through ALL of Isaiah 53. Then I reached over between his hands and closed The Book and asked him simply... "Who Was He?"

He began to reply very softly and hesitantly after a very long silent pause "Yeshuah." He repeated it without encouragement several times, each time louder, more certain, more ecstatic as all the teachings and customs he had ever learned as a Jew suddenly rushed together in his mind and at last... what no one could tell him he truly finally understood, and he screamed "Yeshuah haMashiach!!!" at the top of his lungs into the dark (seemingly) empty night.

Now he is a Teacher, a Teacher of Truth. ; )
