Update: 2017.12.27

The Bible offers no title for Moses, which is his Egyptian Phar­a­on­ic prince surname (meaning "incarnate" in Egyptian) sans the idol-​name prefix (Tut). The most appropriate title can only be gleaned from the verb most often used by the Bible to describe the responsibilities that ‑‑ placed on Mosh•ëh: (pâ•qâd; to audit, exact accountability, hold accountable, keep a check on and revisit problems and issues, review, monitor, oversee and serve as COO)—inherently implying that he was merely the earthly, mortal foreman for our only true Boss: ‑‑. Far more than a mere imaginary (chronologically pre-existent) rabbi, the cognate title for Mosh•ëh would have been .

The Nᵊtzâr•im Pâ•qid derives from this ancient, Tōr•âh-defined job of ‑‑'s mere mortal foreman, later displaced by the "rabbis"—who presume super-divine authority to override and even contradict Ta•na"kh (cf. speaking like a peer "beside" in Dân•iy•eil 7.25; Ho•sheia 13.4; Yᵊsha•yâhu 45.21-22). It should be noted that Ribi Yᵊho•shua, being of the Royal Beit-Dâ•wid, may have registered a subtle displeasure over the rabbis displacing the ancient term of pâ•qid; he clearly wasn't entirely comfortable being addressed as Ribi (The Nᵊtzârim Reconstruction of Hebrew Matitᵊyâhu (NHM, in English) 19.16ff), although he held the term up as a positive goal for others (NHM 5.19). After his death, his brother became the first (second, succeeding Pâ•qid Yᵊho•shua?) pâ•qid of the Nᵊtzâr•im.

The modern military term in Israel's IDF for commander is a cognate: (mᵊpha•qeid). In modern Hebrew, pâ•qid, likely due to the displacement of the term to "Rabbeinu" by rabbis, has become degraded to "clerk".

was understood among Hellenist Jews (witness the LXX) as επισκεπτομαι (episkeptomai; uber-skeptic, judge critically, examine).

Compare and contrast this with the verb (from which derives).

fem. n. (pᵊqūd•âh), pl. or (pᵊqūd•ōt) – an overseeing position, a supervisory position, a mustering or auditing position.

Although, in the modern era, Mōsh•ëh is often erroneously called by rabbis , the Bible never uses this term. In fact, the Biblical term most associated with him is not the root of "rabbi," (to become great, much or many)– exactly the opposite, he was famously meek! Nor even . Rather, the verb the Bible uses to describe what Mōsh•ëh did is this verb – . The term ("of the Army of War") is reserved for ‑‑ (cf Yᵊsha•yâhu 13.4). A priori, the original Nᵊtzâr•im recognized that the most accurate Biblical title for Mōsh•ëh, the of ‑‑, is

The first 15 Nᵊtzâr•im Pâ•qid

The succession of the first 15 Nᵊtzâr•im pᵊqid•im were recorded and documented in real time – in stark contrast to the absence of documented succession of Hellenist Roman (gentile) Christian ëpiskopos (non-existent until retroactively "fabricated" by Hegesippus in mid-2nd century C.E.) – or even the succession of Jewish Rabis (cf. The Nᵊtzârim Reconstruction of Hebrew Matitᵊyâhu 23.8) – are listed by the earliest extant Church historian, Eusebius, and "Jerusalem".

Approximate Dates of Tenure
  1. c 30—c 62 C.E.Pâ•qid Ya•a•qōv "ha-Tza•diq" Bën-Dâ•wid—brother of Ribi Yᵊho•shua Bën-Dâ•wid—the Mâ•shiakh. Until the idolatrous Hellenist Roman Christians extirpated the Nᵊtzâr•im Jews in 333 C.E., they lived among their fellow Pᵊrush•im in harmony (even protected by the Pᵊrush•im against the Hellenists; see Josephus Ant. xx, ix, 1), vilified by the Christian church along with other Jews as "Judaizers" and "sons of Sâ•tân".

  2. c 63—c 107 C.E.—Pâ•qid Shim•on "ha-Tza•diq" Bën-Khëlëph (Hellenized to "Clopas"), murdered by Trajan for being a royal descendant of Dâ•wid ha-Mëlëkh. From this point, Hellenist Romans appear to have consistently hunted them down and assassinated them.

  3. c 107—c 110 C.E.—Pâ•qid Tzi•dᵊq•i•yâh "ha-Tza•diq" (the first)

  4. c 110—c 113 C.E.—Pâ•qid Zᵊkhar•yah "ha-Tza•diq"

  5. c 113—c 115 C.E.—Pâ•qid Tov•i•yâh "ha-Tza•diq"

  6. c 115—c 117 C.E.—Pâ•qid Bin•yâ•min "ha-Tza•diq"

  7. c 117—c 119 C.E.—Pâ•qid Yo•khâ•nân "ha-Tza•diq"

  8. c 119—c 121 C.E.—Pâ•qid Ma•tit•yâhu "ha-Tza•diq"

  9. c 121—c 123 C.E.—Pâ•qid Përësh "ha-Tza•diq" (Hellenized by Eusebius to 'Philip')

  10. c 123—c 125 C.E.—Pâ•qid Sᵊna•âh "ha-Tza•diq" (Hellenized by Eusebius to 'Seneca')

  11. c 125—c 127 C.E.—Pâ•qid Tzi•dᵊq•i•yâh "ha-Tza•diq" (the second)

  12. c 127—c 129 C.E.—Pâ•qid Lei•wi "ha-Tza•diq"

  13. c 129—c 131 C.E.—Pâ•qid Ë•phᵊr•ayim "ha-Tza•diq"

  14. c 131—c 133 C.E.—Pâ•qid Yo•seiph "ha-Tza•diq"

  15. c 133 –135 C.E.—Pâ•qid Yᵊhud•âh "ha-Tza•diq," who was ousted and exiled from Yᵊru•shâ•layim by the gentile Hellenist Romans in 135 C.E., being usurped by Ἐπίσκοπος Μάρκος, the first gentile "pope-bishop," who is the only documented (not retroactively fabricated) origin of the tradition of "popes," who thereby are documented to have arrogated rightful authority from the Nᵊtzâr•im Pâ•qid and are, therefore, counterfeit displacers of the Nᵊtzâr•im Pâ•qid (see section on "Papal Succession" in our History Museum, click on "Apostasy" in menu at top). Legitimate authority remains unchanged—in the Eyes of the Ël•oh•im of Israel—with the Nᵊtzâr•im Pâ•qid, restored in the generation of the reemergence of the State of Israel; like Israel itself, after a long hiatus concluding the Age of the Expulsion from Israel (the 'Dark-Age of the Gentiles').

Thus, there have only been 15 Nᵊtzâr•im pᵊqid•im in the legitimate (Pharisee Orthodox) Jewish community in which Ribi Yᵊho•shua and the original Nᵊtzâr•im lived and taught until our generation—when, for the first time since 135 C.E., a Nᵊtzâr•im Pâ•qid, the 16th, was again accepted (1984) in good standing, restoring the Nᵊtzâr•im to the same legitimate (Pharisee Orthodox) Jewish community in which Ribi Yᵊho•shua and the original Nᵊtzâr•im lived and taught!!!

2nd Coming — Mâ•shiakh 2.0

Messianic prophecies are at the highest, not 3rd grade, intellectual plane. People who ignorantly persist in believing in a self-contradicting supernatural god that needs to contradict earlier "perfect" laws to accomplish its "perfect" plan (therefore a flawed god, having authored either a flawed law or a flawed plan!), will never "get it" that Tōr•âh dictates that anthropomorphizing ‑‑ or the Mâ•shiakh constitutes idolatry! Therefore, the true Mâ•shiakh — of Tōr•âh — could only be a mortal human being, like you and I. Having died, he isn't "coming back" in the superficial and simple-minded interpretation of "resurrected" physical flesh and blood. (For a number of reasons, resurrection cannot be physical.)

This is corroborated and confirmed by the prophecy of Yᵊkhë•zᵊq•eil that Dâ•wid ha-Mëlëkh, who, in the future (despite being long-dead), will reign forever. That cannot be a description of the historical, already long-dead, mortal Dâ•wid ha-Mëlëkh. Nor can the explicit naming of Dâ•wid ha-Mëlëkh, rather than Beit-Dâ•wid be assumed "de convenance", as Christians proclaim, to be merely "symbolic" of Beit-Dâ•wid and the Mâ•shiakh. Rather, the prophecy straightforwardly refers to the after-life, post-physical life Dâ•wid ha-Mëlëkh! A priori, prophecies referring to a "Second Coming" of the Mâ•shiakh similarly refer to a post-physical life restoration, i.e. his spirit, comprising his interpretations and clarifications of Tōr•âhMâ•shiakh 2.0!

Tōr•âh Pâ•qid v ëpiskopos

The difference between the Tōr•âh interpretation of the Mâ•shiakh by a Pâ•qid v the idolatrous Καινής Διαθήκης interpretation of Jesus by an ëpiskopos is stark and intractably unbridgeable! Unlike any of the Christian fakes, Pâ•qid Yi•rᵊmᵊyâhu has been an Orthodox Israeli Jew in good standing among moderate Orthodox rabbis since his, and his wife Karen's, Orthodox conversion in 1984.01, living in Ra•a•nanâ Israel since 1985.04. He was a member in good standing in an Orthodox synagogue (Beit ha-Kᵊnësët Mo•rëshët Âv•ot – Yad Nâ•âm•i in Ra•a•nanâ, Israel) since 1998 – until 12 years later (on 2010.04.21 (more than a quarter-century after the conversions), extremist Ultra-Orthodox Kha•reid•im expressed their new-found sectarian uncertainty, falsely claiming authority to contradict thousands of years of Ha•lâkh•âh by retroactively claiming authority to overturn their own, official Israeli Ministry of Interior, 1985.04.02 recognition of my wife and my 1984.01.15 Orthodox conversions.

The Ultra-Orthodox Israeli cult, realizing they would almost certainly lose in Israel's Supreme Court if they tried to declare us not Jews, or our conversions not valid, deviously opted, instead, to argue in their own kangaroo courts (like the contra-Ha•lâkh•âh Sadducee court that convicted Ribi Yᵊho•shua millennia ago) that, like Reform and Conservative American converts, they don't "recognize" the American English conversion certificate, etc. (However, the converting Orthodox rabbis, being duly recognized by Orthodox authorities and documentation at the time, were the authority, not any after-the-fact wannabes – much less decades after the fact.)

No others claiming to be "Netzarim" are accepted in the legitimate (Pharisee Orthodox) Jewish community in which Ribi Yᵊho•shua and the original Nᵊtzâr•im lived and taught. Thus, all others claiming to be "Netzarim" without being recognized by our Beit Din are fakes and deceivers!

Christians Forcibly Displace 15th Pâ•qid With 1st Ëpiskopos
Hadrian (117-138 C.E.)
(117-138 C.E.)

The earliest extant Church historian, Eusebius, documents that in 135 C.E. Hellenist proto-Christians, collaborating with the Hellenist Roman occupiers under Hadrian, forcibly ousted and expelled the 15th Nᵊtzâr•im Pâ•qid from Yᵊru•shâ•layim with the other Jews, displacing him with the first Roman gentile—Christian—bishop-pope: Ἐπίσκοπος Μάρκος—thereby usurping the Nᵊtzâr•im Pâ•qid with the first gentile Christian "pope-bishop." This marks the birth of Christianity, the original Christians and their gentile Roman Church.

Until Hegesippus in the 3rd century, there were only ἐπίσκοπος—no pope of the Church or in Rome!!! Hegesippus himself documents: "I've fabricated the list of [papal] succession…!"

Even this admission, attributed to mid-2nd century, is documented no earlier than the 4th century C.E., by Eusebius.   Hegesippus, it is then seen, projected his "I've fabricated a list of papal succession" of the 2nd century back to "Simon Peter."

Thus, the pope is documented to be false, a usurping displacement-counterfeit Pâ•qidthereby satisfying, in great detail, the prophecy of the 11th horn of the 4th beast of Dân•iy•eil 7.25—with no connection to Shi•mᵊōn "Keiphâ" Bar-Yonâh. Everything the papacy has usurped, and all authority the pope falsely claims, depends on displacement mythology. The true heritage of Ribi Yᵊho•shua rightfully and exclusively belongs not to the Pope and Vatican, but solely to the domain of the Pâ•qid ha-Nᵊtzâr•im.

Note, too, that Pâ•qid Ya•a•qov "ha-Tza•diq", Bën-Yo•seiph and the Nᵊtzâr•im succession of pᵊqid•im is the chain of authority that was recognized by Shi•mᵊōn "Keiphâ" Bar-Yōnâh – whose ossuary was found by archeologists on Har ha-Zeit•im in Yᵊru•shâ•layim, not Rome – contradicting the Christian claim that he was the first pope! (If Shi•mᵊōn "Keiphâ" Bar-Yonâh had defied the Beit Din in Yᵊru•shâ•layim, which he didn't, then he would have been excised as an apostate—no longer legitimate—as the Apostate Paul was several decades later.)

As Ta•lᵊmud demonstrates from Biblical text, Ha•lâkh•âh from the first century and before holds that only in the land of Israel may Jews be legitimately referred to as a Qâ•hâl. There were no more pᵊqid•im, nor any further legitimately identifiable group of Nᵊtzâr•im until 1983 when Yi•rᵊmᵊyâhu Bën-Dâ•wid was converted by Orthodox rabbis, as a Nᵊtzâr•im, into the legitimate Jewish community, where he thereby became the first, and only, identifiable and legitimate Nᵊtzâr•im in the legitimate Jewish community since 135 C.E.

Ha•lâkh•âh requires that every Jewish community constitute a Beit Din. (While normally comprising three Tōr•âh Jews recognized by Orthodox rabbis (called 'Pharisees' in the first century), Ha•lâkh•âh permits small communities to constitute a Beit Din with as few as one Tōr•âh Jew recognized by Orthodox rabbis.

Accordingly, as the only Nᵊtzâr•im in the legitimate Jewish community (after a thorough search) since 135 C.E., Ha•lâkh•âh required the lone Nᵊtzâr•im, Yi•rᵊmᵊyâhu Bën-Dâ•wid, to restore the Nᵊtzâr•im Beit Din to operation for the first time since 135 C.E., thereby shouldering the mantle of Pâ•qid, which had been vacated by the gentile Christian ouster of Pâ•qid Yᵊhūdâh ha-Tza•diq in 135 C.E. Thus, Pâ•qid Yi•rᵊmᵊyâhu became the 16th Pâ•qid of the Nᵊtzâr•im, restoring the Nᵊtzâr•im as an identifiable group within the legitimate (moderate Orthodox) Jewish community – for the first time since 135 C.E., with the doctrines historically reconstructed just as they were in 135 C.E.!
