The Truth of Genesis:  The Evil and Ignorance of Gentile Christianity – Part 3 of 7

If Yochanan (John the Baptist) and Yeshua (Jesus Christ) ever met before Yeshua’s baptism, it would have been at the latest when Yochanan was twenty months, and Yeshua was fourteen months old.

Therefore, that is why Yochanan would never have known what Yeshua looked like, because Yochanan was in the dessert with his mother until after she died.  He then remained there until he was about 29 years old, and not yet thirty.

There were baptism (mikvah) pools on the Temple Mount, but the priests were too sinful and not qualified to baptize the Messiah.  That is why Yochanan was sent two months before his thirtieth birthday (end of January, 27 AD) to begin mikvahing for the repentance of sins, on the banks of the Jordan River, away from the Temple, in preparation for the Messiah.

On the 20th day of the eleventh month (Shevat), which was February 16th, 27 AD, Yeshua came to Yochanan to be baptized.  The Holy Spirit of Yehovah was in Yochanan from birth, and recognition was given to him concerning Yeshua.

Upon coming out of the water, Yochanan saw the Spirit of God come down from above and alight upon Yeshua, accompanied with an audible voice.

As it was at Mount Sinai, and the Temple Mount at Pentecost, when the Holy Ghost is given, it is accompanied with an audible sound, since it is as invisible as the wind.  Yeshua then went into the wilderness for forty days, and returned on the forty-first day, which was on the first day of the month of the Aviv, on Saturday, March 29th, 27 AD (the “acceptable year” of the Lord).

The evils of the Catholic Church are documented in previous articles, covering the time period of 325 AD to the Reformation.

About the Author

- Herman Cummings is a computer data analyst, who used his training to analyze the written text of Genesis. On EasterSunday, in 1990, a lady stood up in Sunday School and asked the pastor “How can I teach my children about Adam & Eve, when all they are taught is evolution in school?”. The pastor could only say “Just believe the Bible”. That was of no help to the lady. So Herman Cummings began his research to resolve the issue, since the worlds of Creationism and Theology could not literally reconcile Genesis with scientific reality. After receiving the revelation of the first chapter from the Lord in December 1993, Herman Cummings became the world’s leading expert on the book of Genesis (Bereshit).
