The Good News of Yeshua the Messiah as Recorded by
John / Yochanan [Yah is gracious]
Context: John identifies himself and claims first-hand observations. John’s account records many events exclusive to his record. This was written when Rabinical Judaism aligned itself in opposition to Nazarene Judaism following Rabbi Yeshua as Messiah. The imparitive that no middle ground be allowed is conveyed. The reader must choose if this account is true and if the reader aligns or distances from. John was exiled on Patmos at the end of his life; there he wrote “Revelation” also called “Apocalypse [Unveiling]”.

* MP: Messiah is creator of all. He is eternal and remains constant. (Ps 102:25-27) MP: Messiah is from everlasting just as Yahweh God is eternal. (Is 48:16) MP: Messiah is from everlasting, meaning He preexisted, “whose origins are far in the past, back in ancient times”. (Mic 5:2) § MP: Messiah is God. (Zech 11:10-11) B'resheet ·In the beginning of the beginning· was ha D'var ·the Word·, and ha D'var ·the Word· was with God, and ha D'var ·the Word· was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things came to be through him and without him nothing made had being. * MP: The light of Messiah draws Gentile nations. Messiah is accepted by the Gentiles (Is 49:6, 55:4-5), yet was rejected by “his own” (Is 50:3). (Is 60:2-3) In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. There came a man, sent from God, whose name was John [Yah is gracious]. The same came as a witness, that he might testify about the light, that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but was sent that he might testify about the light. MP: The Light shines with the glory of God, yet darkness covers the people, (lack of understanding). (Is 60:1-2) The true light that enlightens everyone was coming into the world.
10  He was in the world, and the world was made through him, and the world didn’t recognize him. 11  MP: Rejected by the Jews. (Ps 69:8) § MP: Messiah is rejected by his own Jewish people, “we did not esteem him”. Yet (Is 49:6 and 60:1-3) says the Messiah’s light draws the Gentiles to Him. (Is 53:3) He came to his own, and those who were his own didn’t receive him. 12 But as many as received him, to them he gave the right to become God’s children, to those who believe in his name: 13 who were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14  * MP: “Your Righteousness” refers to the fullness of the seven fold Spirit of God (Is 11:1-2) and the perfection of graces and virtues without measure, “full of grace and truth” (John 1:14). This qualifies Messiah to be Mediator and Righteous Judge. (Is 11:2; Is 53:11). (Ps 72:1) MP: “a child is born,” Messiah has a human body of flesh and bone. (Is 9:6) MP: Messiah has the titles of Yahweh and God associated with him (similar to the Angel of Yahweh in Ex 23:20-21). (See also Index: “The Angel of Yahweh). (Is 40:3, 40:b-10) § MP: Messiah is sent by GOD to dwell among his people, Gentiles joining Jews. (Zech 2:10-11) * MP: Messiah is both God and man. (Zech 12:10) Ha D'var ·The Word· became flesh, and tabernacled among us. We saw his shekhinah ·manifest weighty glory and presence of God·, such shekhinah ·manifest weighty glory and presence of God· as of the one and only Son of the Abba ·Father·, full of grace and truth. 15 John [Yah is gracious] testified about him. He cried out, saying, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me, for he was before me.’ ” 16  MP: Messiah is referred to as the altogether lovely one. (Song of Songs 5:16) From his fullness we all received grace upon grace. 17  For the Torah ·Teaching· was given through Moses [Drawn out]; grace and truth came through Yeshua Messiah [Salvation Anointed one]. 18 No one has seen God at any time. The one and only Son, who is in the bosom of Abba ·Father familiar, Dear Dad·, he has declared him.
19 This is John [Yah is gracious]’s testimony, when the Jews sent priests and Levites [Descendants of United with] from Jerusalem [City of peace] to ask him, “Who are you?”
20 He declared, and didn’t deny, but he declared, “I am not the Messiah [Anointed one].”
21 They asked him, “What then? Are you Elijah [My God Yah]?”
He said, “I am not.”
“Are you the prophet?”
He answered, “No.”
22  MP: Pathway for the upright, those who are clean, to walk in, (waters in the desert Is 35:7) and not for those unclean. (See also Is 29:18-19). They said therefore to him, “Who are you? Give us an answer to take back to those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?”
23  He said, “I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way of MarYah [Master Yahweh],’ § Quoted from Is 40:3 as Isaiah [Salvation of Yah] the prophet said.”
24 The ones who had been sent were from the Pharisees [Separated]. 25 They asked him, “Why then do you baptize, if you are not the Messiah [Anointed one], nor Elijah [My God Yah], nor the prophet?”
26  * MP: God will set Messiah apart amidst people who do not recognize or understand (in darkness). (Is 60:2) John [Yah is gracious] answered them, “I baptize in water, but among you stands one whom you don’t know. 27 He is the one who comes after me, who is preferred before me, whose sandal strap I’m not worthy to loosen.” 28 These things were done in Bethany [House of affliction] beyond the Jordan [Descender], where John [Yah is gracious] was baptizing.
29 The next day, he saw Yeshua [Salvation] coming to him, and said, MP: Messiah is like a sacrificial lamb - “God will provide himself a lamb.” (Gen 22:8) MP: Messiah, in likeness of a sacrificial lamb, is silent before his accusers. (See also Ps 35:11). (Is 53:7) “Behold, the Lamb of God, § MP: The blessing will come “in your seed.” - Seed refers to refers to Messiah, as promised in (Gen 3:15). This is the blessing, to restore right relationship with God. (Gen 12:7) who takes away the sin of the world! 30  This is he of whom I said, ‘After me comes a man who is preferred before me, for he was before me.’ 31 I didn’t know him, but for this reason I came baptizing in water: that he would be revealed to Israel [God prevails].” 32  * MPr: Rambam explains: In the days of King Messiah, when his kingdom is established and all Israel are gathered into it, the descent from all Israel will be confirmed by him through the Holy Spirit which will rest upon him, as it is written, And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver (Mal. 3:3).
First he will purify the children of Levi [United with] and will clarify, “this one is of priestly descent, and this one is of Levitical descent.” And he will reject those who are not descended of Israel, as it written, “and the Governor said to them that they should not eat the most holy things till there stood up a priest with 'urim and thummin” (Ezra 2:63). From this you learn that the presumption of descent will be confirmed, and those with established descent will be announced by Ruach haKodesh [Spirit of the Holiness]. And he will establish the descent not merely from Israel but between each tribal descendant. (Mishne Torah [Second Torah] written by RamBam – Hilchot Melachim, c. 12. sect. 3). (Mal 3:3)
MP: The Messiah possesses the complete (seven) anointing of the Spirit of God upon him. (Consider the purpose of the Spirit, Is 11:2).
Special Considerations: Seven is the number of complete fullness. (Is 11:2)
Note: This phrase is repeated in (Rev 1:4, 3:1, 4:5, 5:6). All attributes listed are associated with “the Spirit of God” in Old Covenant working with humans, therefore we can liken this to the ministry of the Holy Spirit in the New Covenant because of the sameness.
John [Yah is gracious] testified, saying, “I have seen haRuach [the Spirit] descending like a dove out of heaven, and it remained on him. 33  I didn’t recognize him, but he who sent me to baptize in water, he said to me, ‘On whomever you will see haRuach [the Spirit] descending, and remaining on him, the same is he who baptizes in Ruach haKodesh [Spirit of the Holiness].’ 34  MP: Messiah is the Son of God, “a son is given”. Hence Messiah has divine origins. (Is 9:6) I have seen, and have testified that this is the Ben-Elohim ·Son of Elohim God·.”
35 Again, the next day, John [Yah is gracious] was standing with two of his disciples, 36 and he looked at Yeshua [Salvation] as he walked, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God!” 37 The two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Yeshua [Salvation]. 38 Yeshua [Salvation] turned, and saw them following, and said to them, “What are you looking for?”
They said to him, “Rabbi ·Teacher·” (which is to say, being interpreted, Teacher), “where are you staying?”
39 He said to them, “Come, and see.”
They came and saw where he was staying, and they stayed with him that day. It was about four o'clock in the afternoon. 40 One of the two who heard John [Yah is gracious], and followed him, was Andrew [Manly], Simeon Peter [Hearing Rock]’s brother. 41 He first found his own brother, Simeon [Hearing], and said to him, “We have found the Messiah [Anointed one]!” (which is, being interpreted, Moshiach ·Anointed one·). 42 He brought him to Yeshua [Salvation]. Yeshua [Salvation] looked at him, and said, “You are Simeon [Hearing] the son of Jonah [Dove]. You shall be called Cephas” (which is by interpretation, Peter [Rock]). 43 On the next day, he was determined to go out into Galilee [District, Circuit], and he found Philip [Loves horses]. Yeshua [Salvation] said to him, “Follow me.” 44 Now Philip [Loves horses] was from Bethsaida, of the city of Andrew [Manly] and Peter [Rock]. 45 Philip [Loves horses] found Nathanael [Given by God], and said to him, “We have found the one that Moses [Drawn out] wrote about in the Torah ·Teaching·, and the Prophets— it is Yeshua [Salvation] son of Joseph [May he add] from Nazareth [Branch, Separated one].”
46 Nathanael [Given by God] said to him, “Can any good thing come out of Nazareth [Branch, Separated one]?”
Philip [Loves horses] said to him, “Come and see.”
47  § MPr: The King Messiah will be revealed to the congregation of Israel. And the children of Israel shall say to Him, “Come and be a brother to us, and let us go up to Jerusalem. And there we will together suck the meaning of Torah, as an infant its mother’s breast.” (Targum Song of Songs 8:1). (Song of Songs 8:1) Yeshua [Salvation] saw Nathanael [Given by God] coming to him, and said about him, “Behold, an Israelite [Descendant of God prevails] indeed, in whom is no deceit!”
48  * MPr: In context of describing the future time of universal peace under the Messianic Kingdom rein. (Zech 3:10 in Midrash Ps 122). (Zech 3:10) Nathanael [Given by God] said to him, “How do you know me?”
Yeshua [Salvation] answered him, “Before Philip [Loves horses] called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.”
49  Nathanael [Given by God] answered him, “ Rabbi ·Teacher·, you are the Ben-Elohim ·Son of Elohim God·! You are Melek Isra'el [King of God prevails]!”
50  Yeshua [Salvation] answered him, “Because I told you, ‘I saw you underneath the fig tree,’ do you believe? You will see greater things than these!” 51  He said to him, “Most certainly, I tell you, hereafter you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending Quoted from Gen 28:12 on the Son of Man.”
