Dan Black is correct, the Hebrew word קהל (kahal, Strong's #6951) is translated in the 2,000 year old Greek Septuagint translation of the Hebrew with the Greek word ekklesia. Both kahal (Hebrew) and ekklesia (Greek) meaning "meeting." Interestingly ekklesia is derived from the Hebrew word kahal, notice they both contain the ancient KL root.
The Hebrew word kahal is also translated in the Greek Septuagint with the Greek word synagogue, a Greek word meaning "gathering."
Nomad Man (Jeff A. Benner) --I believe everything I believe is true, but I believe that not everything I believe is true.
Interestingly, the english word we now use as "church" doesn't have the same meaning as kahal in Hebrew or ekklesia in Greek.
Many words we now use in the Scriptures, doesn't match the original words in Hebrew or Greek and this is one of them.
William Tyndale used the word "assembly" or "congregation" to match "kahal" and "ekklesia". Most of Tyndale's work was used by King James and he replaced the word congregation for the word "church". He also renamed the Book of James after himself. Most of the leadership in Scotland and England were into the occult.
We all have been indoctrinated to think a synagogue or church is in reference to a building. We all are familiar with buildings of worship by Judaism and what is called "christianity" and refer to them as synagogues and churches whereas the original intent was in reference to the people come together to congregate.
The etymology of the word "church" comes from the Scottish word "kirk" which when traced back had to do with the worship of the Queen of Heaven. She was known by various names throughout history and in the Agean Sea area, her name was Circe, pronounced with a "k" sound, which is where the Scottish word "kirk" comes from. The circle is one of her symbols and is found throughout history and places like Stone Hendge were used to worship Circe. The eight spoke wheel is famous throughout history and is found in many prominent places today. The Eighteenth dynasty of Egypt, which is the dynasty of the Pharaoh Akhenaten famous in the Exodus and the destruction of his army and priests. It is the only dynasty that had eight spoke wheels according to Zawi Hawass head of Egyptian Antiquities, and these were found at the crossing between Nuwieba and Saudi Arabia were the Exodus crossing took place.
Our English word "circle" and "circus" is derived from the name Circe.
Most groups who call themselves a "church" have no idea the origin of this word and they have King James to thank for the switch. Most other English translations following the King James Version used this erroneous word.
When the real Jews disobeyed the Almighty YaHWeH and returned to Egypt, not only were they worshipping this Queen of Heaven, they told Yerem-YaH (Jeremiah) and YaHWeH they wouldn't stop [Jer. 44:1-28]. YaHWeH then took HIS NAME from their mouths [verse 26].
This Queen of Heaven is the mother/wife of the Mighty Nimrod [Gen. 10:8-9] who took over the building of the Tower of Babel and throughout history was worshipped as the Sun God and refered to as Baal. His mother/wife was known as Venus and the Moon goddess, who is honoured in the day Monday. She is also known as Easter. Each day of the week has been renamed in honour of these two rebels. One religion on this earth has the crescent moon and the "star" Venus on their flag. She is Baal-alah.
The tall obelisks from Egypt tapering off to a point is in reference to Nimrod and the eight spoke circle where the obelisk sits in the hub, is in reference to Shemiramis, a blond haired woman married to Cush the father of Nimrod . Nimrod married his mother and this started the "mother and child" worship.

gregory.bartholomew: I think the only way to block out those would be to block out an entire section of internet addresses (e.g. all Chinese and Korean IP addresses if that is where the spam is coming from). Only Admin can do that though. All I can do is delete.

aurumspiral1235813: I was looking at the Timeline Chart. The Talmud Bavli was actually written just prior to exile from Babylon. Even a century before then, it would have been considered heresy to write Oral tradition down, but times changed and my people felt that...

lilly: iI am looking for a thread discussing the use of adoni (my lord) and not adonai (the formal plural of adon) in 1) the original Hebrew scriptures and 2)any ancient extra-biblical literature.

zecheriyah: I am not aware of such a thread, perhaps there is one buried deep in antiquity but I couldn't find it. Now would be a good time to start one if you are genuinely interested.

annstephens: just downloaded the free Genesis ebook, learning of this interesting translation. Could someone recommend which resource would be best for studying new testament scriptures with ancient hebrew meanings - at least until that mechanical translation is ready

zecheriyah: Jeff Benner's New Testament Greek to Hebrew Dictionary is a helpful resource, particularly if you have all ready studied a little of both languages and want to start 'connecting the dots'. It is available as an e-book as well.

aurumspiral1235813: Beit HaMikdash is the term for what many Christians call "the Holy Temple", but it would erroneous to use this, as there are very specific building plans and methods required for the True House of Hashem, for information on these plans, see Ezekiel 40.
