The following is a document by the Federation of Adventist Jewish Society on the subject of fish.




“Have you any meat? And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of a honeycomb. And He took it, and did eat before them.” – LUKE 24:41-43. “Children- have you any meat?”- JOHN 21:4


Making this very clear, the writers of the New Testament were Hebrew people; their language choice makes a clear message to us today.


Looking at the translations as a Hebrew original is best because the spelling fits the ancient Rabbinical Hebrew transliteration using Greek letters. The Sefer Molim Dictionary by Jastrow has spelling variations that match the New Testament with a superior translation. What does the Ancient Received Text Greek and Aramaic - Hebrew Peshitta Text actually SAY? Here is a correct understanding and translation:


The direct Greek Received Text translation is: t. ß..s.µ..? The direct translation is: “Brothers of Abraham, you shall be grafting (others) with this pressed young wine and pieces of bread.” Luke 24:41 The Greek letters transliteration as a specific additional witness is: .a.d.a µ. t. p..sf..... ..ete? The direct translation: “Divide in segments the fluid, what you shall be breaking bread and saying grace for the cup of benediction with this instruction, joining all brothers into the family of Abraham.” - John 21:4


The direct Hebrew translation of the Aramaic Peshitta Text is: ‘What are the righteous to be compared to, give (giving) to eat the bread of destruction, the informer’s bread?” Sprinkle on the altar to give place and put unto Him the count, share or portion taking thought to grow (in your) afternoon prayers and hymns that the sin of Israel bitterness as sickness needing healing, forgiven and pardoned, will be sweetened.” -Luke 24:42-43.


The Aramaic Peshitta, reflects similarly: “My authorative existence the juice, the blood of the grape sprinkled with a contract portion and share eaten in condition of a stipulated transaction as eaten portion of food immersed in a cluster of grapes (which is) a covenant of Divine punishment (for) the idolater’s soul will be circumcised (giving) sweetness.” Luke

24:42- 43.


“And He commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves and two fishes, and looking up to heaven, He blessed, and broke, and gave the loaves to His disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.”- Matthew 14:19.


Here is a correct understanding and translation of the two words: d.. ....a. means from a Rabbinical Hebrew community of faith context: The first portion, .. (confirming the Rabbinical use of this Greek lettered word d.. as their Hebrew word) “Double action to destroy the enemy and revive the people” (Jastrow, page 282). The second portion is .... that means “searcher of sin, the sinner accuser” (Jastrow, page 574, 449) from a root meaning of the Law of cleansing and purification because of moving the arm downward sprinkling (Jastrow, page 449). The ‘fish’ translation has several variations of which the spelling of the Received Text does not match the dictionary. The ‘two fishes’ means “cleansing of sin the sinner by the movement of the arm downward sprinkling, the double action is to destroy the enemy and revive the people.”


The conclusion is that the clearly different spelling of the Greek word for fish gives a false translation. The readers can now make an informed decision to investigate this further. The Jewish community has the right view and understanding of how significant this Sanctuary meal would be. The instruction of this meal was given from the time of the prophet Moses and held in reverence by the ancient Hebrew people and is still practiced today. This meal is so significant that it confirms WHO the Messiah is. The ancient Babylonian theology and doctrines are now exposed.

The Misunderstood Covenant Ceremonies

understood Ceremonies







The miracle of the loaves is now understood as the ‘dipping of the bread’ into the unfermented wine (grape juice). The miracle that Yahshuah performed, that a prophet that should come into the world (John 6:14) was to confirm the Sanctuary meal of the Messiah, the Kiddush or cup of Sanctification supped or dipped for the nation. This key meal understanding was to confirm His anointed role to restore healing at the Sanctuary using the pattern established by hwhy Almighty G-d as given to the prophet Moses and to confirm the everlasting Covenant of the Bread and the Wine.


The Prophet Moses made a constant declaration:

There are punishments for disobedience to the

Laws of Almighty G-d. The Holy Scriptures teach a clear warning: “…And if any man shall add unto these things, G-d shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book.” – Revelation 22:18. Making this very clear, there are hard facts backing up this document in the reader’s hands today. The available scholarly dictionary of the contemporary Teachers of the Laws of Moses from two thousand years ago documents that there are Hebrew word transliterations into a Greek lettered word. The declaration that pagan fish worship and bottles of fermented wine and bread are practiced contrarily to the Eternal Truths of the Messiah King Yahshuah taught is much reason to make corporate and individual repentance. The LORD commanded us through the Holy Scriptures: “To obey is better than sacrifice…For rebellion is the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the WORD of the LORD.” – I Samuel 15:22-23.




The modern discovery of the long sought after Earthen Vessel has now clearly explained the ceremony that would depicted the slain Messiah Ben-Yosef – The Suffering Servant. The entire ceremony required the repentant sinner to partake of the Messiah’s Meal.


This healing meal is now given to the world to announce the soon coming Messiah. The distinction of the Anti-Christ and the houses of confusion versus the True Messiah of the House of the Father has been briefly presented.

Did Yahshuah Messiah and His disciples eat …FISH?


The Truth Revealed!


The Misunderstood Ceremonies of the Sanctuary

THE MIRACLE OF THE LOAVES AND FISHES: ARE THESE REALLY ACCURATELY TRANSLATED STORIES? Did you know… Mystery religions used fish, wine and bread for their sacramental meal on Friday, the day of the pagan deity Venus. This same recipe of a sacramental meal is permeated into the Ashkenazi Jewish community and as well the Roman Catholic communities. How did this confusion become part of the Holy Scriptures to cover up the real meal that the Messiah taught and practiced? What about the miracles of the ‘loaves and the fishes’ and the fish that Messiah demanded to eat? Has anyone noticed that the Greek lettering does not match to the text and that these are HEBREW word originals? The scholars write ‘presumed, uncertain’ with the words translated to fish. This pamphlet is a brief summary of an investigation as to what the original intent was of the message given to the congregations confirming the Messiah was indeed Yahshuah, a Nazarite.


The Prophet Isaiah made a true and sad declaration:

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because you have rejected knowledge… because you have forgotten the law…”- Hosea 4:6


The Original Diet was given by our Creator:

And G-d said, "Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for food. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creeps upon the earth, wherein there is a living soul, I have given every green herb for food: and it was so.” - Genesis 1:29-30 What? … Didn’t the disciples and Yahshuah as Messiah eat flesh meat and drink fermented wine? This historian, Hegesippus, gives a remarkable account of James, the brother of our LORD Yahshuah that indicates that he also was a Nazarite and the first ruler of the congregation of believers in Jerusalem: “James, we are told was Holy from birth. He drank no wine nor strong liquor, nor ate he any living thing. A razor never went upon his head…Even his clothes were free from any taint of death for he wore no woolen but linen garments only. James was allowed to freely enter into the Temple.”


History raises some questions as to what believers today have assumed as to the diet of the family and disciples of King Yahshuah. Where were these fishy stories originating from? To solve this dilemma, this study examined closely the Greek text and found some fascinating facts that were confirmed with the correlating Aramaic Peshitta text.





Thinking differently from the Holy Scriptures guidelines has corrupted Bible exegesis the entire ‘Old Testament’ has now been put into a spiritual wastebasket because of Church Traditions, contrary to the warnings of our Messiah. Worship inthe church as syncretism has been discovered. In Hislop’s The Two Babylons, pp. 252 and 270, we read, "that Icthus, or the Fish, was one of the names of Bacchus." Bacchus was just another name for Tammuz, the Sun-deity. The adoration or veneration of the fish emblem is clearly and emphatically forbidden in Deut. 4:15-19. Paganism was mixed with the Messianic Belief. Hislop states that our Messiah "began to be popularly called ICHTHYS that is 'the Fish', manifestly to identify Him with Dagon." Dagon was the Fish-deity. Augustine, the celebrated Church Father, rather childishly, gave his reason for the church doing this symbolism, "If you combine the initial letters of the five Greek words, which are Iesous Chreistos Theou Uios Soter, Jesus Christ the Son of God the Saviour, they make the word ichthus, meaning fish, and the mystic is Christ… as in the depths of the sea." by C.J. Koster, Come Out Of Her, My People. Pease recognize the DIFFERENT spelling of the N. T. Greek letters to the Greek word for fish and the fish deity.


Did Yahshuah Messiah really teach eating fish and drinking the fermented wine of Babylon deity worship? NO “Have you here any meat?” and “Jesus feeds the five thousand” Matthew 14:13-21, Mark 6:30-44, Luke 9:10-17, John 6:1-14 are the synoptic New Testament record that with this miracle meal of the Kingdom of G-d that ‘He healed their sick, He healed them that had need of healing.’ The Laws of Moses required a Covenant Meal, the bread and wine, both unfermented for the sanctuary healing ceremony. Why did the translations insert FISH, especially TWO fish, the mystic Sun worship symbol of Dagon? The warnings of King Yahshuah still are commanding us to NOT to “…eat things sacrificed to idols.” – Revelation 2:20. Most believers would be shocked as to how the enemy has infiltrated worship even in the Holy Scriptures through the traditions of the church yet we were forewarned by the words “Come out of her My people!”





The words warning congregations throughout the

millennia have been “…I have a few things against you, because you have there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam who taught Balak to cast a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto Idols, and to commit fornication. So have you also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolatanes which thing I hate. Repent; or else I will come unto you quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of My mouth. ” –Revelation 2:14- 16. The Elijah repentance message to identify idolatry and adultery/fornication of Babylonian doctrines has been done with the Holy Scriptures. The warning ‘Remember the laws of Moses’ (Malachi 4:4, 5) starting with the Song of Moses (Exodus 15:9) indicating the right hand is that sword that would destroy the enemy. The right hand of hwhy Almighty G-d has always been to RESCUE

with the right hand, a symbol of healing work

(Deuteronomy 5:15). The Greek philosophy has

infiltrated our houses of worship and idolatry in the worst form has been inserted into the documents of our Holy Scriptures. The good news is that the original meaning is still intact and believers can indeed understand the magnificent significance of this discovery and rejoice.


What? …Did Yahshuah Messiah eat and drink the

LORD’s Supper and follow all dietary instructions according to the Laws of Moses? Yes.


“Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy but to fulfill [fully preach, verify and satisfy]. Whosoever shall break one of these commandments and shall teach men so,

he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven…”- Matthew 5:17, 19. “Yahshuah answering said unto them: ‘You therefore err because you know not the Scriptures, neither the power of G-d.’” – Matthew 22:29 Mark 11:24. “And He said unto them, ‘These are the words which I spoke unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the

prophets, and in the Psalms concerning Me.’” – Luke 24:44.


Are Babylonian-Egyptian-Roman false doctrines infiltrated into our Holy Scriptures covering up important truth?
