Introduction by Clifton A. Emahiser: Jeffrey Crosby has been in prison for some time on a dubious charge where he has helped me a great deal by serving as one of my proofreaders. Previously, I had published an article for Jeffrey entitled Unveiling The Fears And Denials Behind “The Passion Of The Christ”. Crosby has now sent me several drafts on the topic above. After about six weeks of scanning four of his typewritten manuscripts into word processor documents, I came to the realization that an introduction would be in order. E. Raymond Capt has written a booklet...

This is a continuation in the story of the early followers of the Messiah after the Passion, and the founding of the very first above ground church by Joseph of Arimathea and a band of those who worshiped Christ. They were followers of what was known as ‘The Way’. This is one of those stories that has become obscured as a result of the ravages of history. Yet enough of the pieces of the account have survived to make the narrative creditable which will be documented as we go along. It is very much like the genealogy of Christ when the Edomite Herod family burned all the records of the noble...

We were last discussing the facts of the Messiah’s trials and tribulations which led to His crucifixion. Just prior to that, some officers of the Sanhedrin were sent to arrest Yahshua. But when He told them “Ye shall seek me and shall not find me; and where I am, thither ye cannot come. Then said the [impostor] Jews among themselves, Whither will he go ...? will he go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles (Strong’s #1672, ‘Hellen’ or Grecian speaking nations), and teach the Gentiles (sic Hellens)...

We were last discussing the many different tribes of people who, over the centuries, migrated to the British Isles. But why to these Isles in particular? There must be a purpose for everything – a reason for things to happen the way they do throughout history – or there would be no purpose for the prophets of the scriptures in the first place. Ours would simply be a void ‘religion’ without direction, much like those permeating...

We have been telling the story of how Joseph of Arimathea, great uncle to our Messiah Yahshua, took Christ’s battered body off of the cross and placed Him in a tomb in Joseph’s garden in Jerusalem. Yet immediately after it became known that Yahshua had risen from the dead, it was the obligation, the desire of His disciples, of which Joseph definitely was, to bring the good news of the resurrection specifically to the lost flock of...

Previously we identified Glastonbury, England as the earliest church outside of Jerusalem. Among these early followers of The Way, the Apostle Philip is referred to by the Gallic Church as the first Apostle to Gaul – today’s France. Yet we will see how it was by the direction of those in the British Isles who would dominate the Gallic scene and catapult its evangelizing efforts, with Saints like Lazarus. This same Lazarus was the one Christ Yahshua raised from the dead....

Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the Lord. Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes. For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left...

We will continue with our story of the first church that was built after our Messiah Christ Yahshua was crucified and resurrected. It was because of Joseph of Arimathea, leading a band of Apostles of Christ, that this came to pass. They were a humble body, dedicated and passionate to the cause of bringing the promise of the Word, the resurrection, to the scattered “lost flock” of Israel that were in the British...
