We are Nazarene Jews or the Way, known as the first believers in Yeshua / Jesus also
called in Hebrew as נצרים / Netzarim
In the Book of Acts Saul is described as a participant in the sect of the Nazarenes:
"We have found this man a plague, and a promoter of sedition among all the Jews,
throughout the world; and the chief defender of the sect of the Nazarenes "(Acts 24: 5).
Saul also makes the following statement:
"But this I confess, that according to the way which they call the sect, so I serve the God
of our fathers, believing all things that are written in the law and in the prophets." Acts 24:14
THE HISTORY FOR THE TRAZY OF THE NAZARENES
A good historical definition about us (Nazarenes) was given by Epiphanius of Salamis,
who classified us as heretics. We decided to transcribe it by historical value and by identifying ourselves with the definitions it reported about us: "These sectarians do not call themselves Christians, but Nazarenes. However they are simply complete Jews. They use no mention of the new testament (Ketuvim Netzarim) but also the old testament (Tanakh) as the Jews do. They have no different ideas but profess everything exactly as the law proclaims, and in the Jewish way. Except for their faith in the Messiah, if it can be understood, for they acknowledge the resurrection of the dead and the divine creation of all things.
They declare that God is one and that his son is Yeshua the Messiah, They are trained in the Hebrew language and therefore among them the whole Torah just as the prophets are read. They are different from the Jews and different from the Christians by the following:
They disagree with the Rabbinic Jews because they believe in Yeshua, but they still have
the law of reference (Circumcision, the Sabbath and the rest) as a reference, and therefore
they do not agree with the Christians.
They are nothing but Jews. They have the Gospel of Matthew in their entirety in Hebrew
as it was originally written " Ref. (Epiphanius of Salamis, Panarion against all the Herezias)
Epiphanius of Salamis wrote this work against all heresies in 374 AD.
Epiphanius of Salamis (in Latin: Epiphanius) was a bishop of the city of Salamis and metropolitan of the island of Cyprus in the late fourth century. He gained a reputation as a strong supporter of Christian orthodoxy. It is also known to have written a huge
compendium of heresies that threatened early Christianity until its time. Once Judaism weakened, Christianity emerged from within the group of Nazarenes.
DECLARATION OF FAITH
I. יהוה (GOD)
We believe that God is one. We believe that He created all things and without Him nothing was made that was made. (John 1: 3) He IS before all things. In it all subsists. (Col. 1:17) This God who is ONE manifests itself in a plural form, as: Father, Son and
Holy Spirit. (1 John 5: 7)
II. MESSIAH (YESHUA)
We believe that Jesus (המשיה ישוע) has come, and with great joy we wait for his return.
We believe that the Messiah is the incarnate Word. (John 1: 1) He was born of a virgin,
lived a sinless life according to the scriptures, performed miracles, was crucified for the
atonement of sins, was bodily resurrected on the third day, ascended to heaven, and now
sits right of God (יהוה). He will return at the end of this time to inaugurate the Kingdom
of God on earth and will rule the world from Jerusalem with his people for a thousand
III. HOLY SPIRIT
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the comforter, sent by God, and acts in us by revealing
the messiah and convincing us of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment.
We believe that the Bible, which includes both the Old Testament (תוֹרָה) and the New
Testament, (הנזירים כתבים) is divinely inspired in its original texts and manuscripts. We
believe that the observance of the Scriptures is the moral obligation of every man and the
expression of love for God. Watching the scriptures means freedom rather than slavery.
We believe that, through the death of Messiah Yeshua / ישוע because of his blood
covenant with us, we inherit salvation. This salvation comes by faith through grace.
He who has my commandments and keeps them is the one who loves me (John 14: 21a)
SAW. SOLE CELEBRATIONS OF THE LORD
We believe in observing the feasts of the Lord described in Leviticus 23. We believe that
the feasts are prophetic and point to the birth, death and second coming of the Messiah.
The main parties are:
• Shabbat / Saturday
• Passover / Passover
• / Paes Asmos
• Shavuot / Weeks / First
• Yom Teruá / Day of the Trumpet
• Yom Kippur / Forgiveness Day
• Sukkot / Cabana Party
VII. THE ONLY FAITH
We believe that there is a faith that was once and for all delivered at Sinai. The Messiah
(Jesus) did not come to create a new religion, but to be the Messiah of Judaism, and to
confirm the revelation of God contained in the Torah.
