THE WORK IN MODERN TIMES
GUIDANCE IN WRITTEN FORM
The Nazoreans (Nā-zar-ē-inz) are the leaders in scriptural truth.
The Nazoreans have the two prophetic schools of ancient Israel and Judah. Our academy holds to the original Way of God – the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Our school stood against the priesthood prophetic school who heavily pushed rules and regulations, taking away God-given liberty and choice under the guise of 'Control them for their own good.'
Our ancient scriptures affirm the brotherhood of mankind under one God. It neither threatens the tortures of hell and the never-quenched flames of a Lake of Fire, nor the reward of a Promised Land, Paradise, or Heaven. God never used such manipulative tactics and neither do we. We have restored the original, simplistic message of Divinity - Freely give. Our scriptures add some exciting writings from ancient Nazorean Initiates, Sages, and prophets purposely missing from the Priesthood version condemned by the Pauline and Rome-descended churches.
The Jerusalem Nazorean group, the first and only disciples of both Jesus and John the Baptist, are all but completely ignored by the New Testament. Early in Acts, the Bible becomes The Story of Paul. Why? Paul has extreme animosity for the Jerusalem group. He sarcastically calls them the so-called super apostles. Funny thing is, Paul invented the term apostle because he didn't meet the qualifications as stated IN the Bible to be one of the Twelve. The Twelve had sat under the direct ministry of Eshu, Aramaic for Jesus, and were Initiates of Jesus, the Bar-Enash, the Son of Man Messiah as opposed to the Ben-David Messiah of the Pharisees expected to be king.
The Nazorean Initiates did things that the mainstream church did not. They were contemplative. They meditated. They walked in the Way of God, the divine Path. That Path required looking inward. The NT completely misses the mark when they translate the Greek - the kingdom of God. The Aramaic requires the 'Reign of God' - a totally different, very active VERB rather than NOUN. Jesus taught the Initiate to go inward where the Reign of God begins. That should give a whole new meaning to "The kingdom of God is within you."
Nazoreans do not get caught up in doctrines and dogma. We are concerned with: How have you helped your neighbor today? We don't dissect and quantify God.
It is the mission of today's body of Nazoreans to reestablish the original spirit, mission, and goal of the ancient Nazoreans. Ours is a national and worldwide parent organization, providing charitable works in local communities.
You may be surprised of how frequently the word Nazarene/s appears in the Bible. If you read it with eyes wide open, you will see that they clearly distinguished themselves from Jews - they simply didn't consider themselves to be one and the same sect. Read the NT and you will discover how Eshu and His disciples had to run and escape from their clutches. Nazarenes NEVER called themselves nor were they called Christians - they simply were not this sect that abandoned the Torah because of the Lawless teaching of the Pharisee Sha'ul (Paul). As a matter of historical fact, the two earliest bible manuscripts, DO NOT contain the name "Christians."
There are 19 references to the Nazorean (Natsari) in the Bible.
1. Mark 16:6 "Don't be alarmed," he said. "You are looking for Eshu the Nazorean, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him.”
2. Mark 14:67 “When she saw Peter warming himself, she looked closely at him. "You also were with that Nazorean, Eshu," she said.”
8. John 19:19 “It was written, "ESHU THE NAZOREAN, THE KING OF THE JEWS."
9. Acts 22:8 “’Who are you, lord?' I asked. "And the voice replied, 'I am Eshu the Nazorean, the one you are persecuting.”
10. Acts 2:22 “People of Israel, listen! God publicly endorsed Eshu the Nazorean by doing powerful miracles, wonders, and signs through him, as you well know.”
11. Luke 24:19 “And he said to them, "What things?" And they said to him, "The things about Eshu the Nazorean, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word in the sight of God.”

John the Baptist and Jesus both were identified as Nazoreans. The Way of Life was simple: Help your neighbor. Jesus sent his disciples forth with one bit of instruction - When you see someone in need, help them. Cold? Give them clothes. Hungry? Provide food. In prison? Visit them and show care and concern. Widows and Orphans? Help them survive.
This message never changed. The Twelve were sent out with this message. Later, the Rich young Ruler was given the same message of living a Life according to the True Torah and helping his neighbor through generosity, Soon before crucifixion, the parable of the Sheep and Goats tells a graphic story of the necessity of charitable generosity. The Twelve continued this tradition.
Along came Paul, who did not meet the established qualifications of being a member of the Twelve. Therefore he invented a new term: Apostle. Paul became an apostle, the first and only self-appointed messenger of God. He admitted that he did not know Jesus and that his doctrines did not come from the Twelve. He claimed he learned his doctrines from visionary encounters with the ghost of the risen Jesus. He invented a new gospel, one that saved Christians (his Gentile followers) from their sins and subsequently from the ravaging flames of eternal hellfire. No longer was the good news "help your neighbor". It became "Ask Jesus to save you from who you are."
What makes the Natsraya otherwise known as the Nazoreans significant? They followed "The Way" which makes it the only named faith (religion) in the Bible. I use the term religion reluctantly because it is a word not found in the Hebrew scriptures. Pauline Christianity has always enjoyed using the word to describe belief systems including their own. By contrast, the Natsraya were the Watchmen who were followers of the Mashiah bar-Yoseph who were commissioned to keep the True Torah and Testimony – requirements to enter the Malkuth or Reign of God – the Way. We refer to the True Torah and Testimony as the Nazorean Code. Note: The Mashiah bar-Yoseph was the son or servant of man in contrast with the Mashiach ben-David the anointed ruler king. The contrasting messiahs is one of several key differences between the Natsraya and Jews. Strangely, Paul and Christianity took on the Mashiach ben-David doctrine of the Jews while rejecting the entire Law considered the foundation of the Davidic dogma.
All man-made religions are unbiblical and doomed for destruction. Don’t ignore the Biblical and historical evidence. Don’t stick to your man-made cults. These include Judaism and Christianity.
The world is filled with tens of thousands of Bible-based religions as their source of faith, but only a remnant follow the ONLY sect the Bible identifies: The Natsraya Way, not to be confused with the modern Church of the Nazarene, a Protestant Christian church in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition, nor the Apostolic Christian Church (Nazarene) originating in the Swiss Nazarene Baptist movement, nor The Way International.
The Natsraya Way is non-profit; has no rabbi, preacher, pastor or especially no priest as its leader; all are brethren. Donations are welcome but not required. Books are few and far between. Tithing is prohibited and not recognized as a part of the True Torah.
Where are the true Natsraya? - Within you which is where you find the Malkuth or Reign of God:
"I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will be careful to observe My Laws. You will live in the land that I gave to your forefathers; so you will be My people, and I will be your God." - Ezekiel 36:27
"Neither shall they say, Over here! or, Over there! for, behold, the Malkuth (Reign) of God is within you." - Luke 17:21
The Natsraya were not Early Christians or Jewish Christians. Christians followed Paul in rejecting the Torah; Nazoreans kept the True Torah. The Natsraya, not Christians, were sacrificed to the lions in the Colosseum. Many tens of thousands of Nazoreans were beheaded and slaughtered by the Christian Roman Catholic Church during the Inquisition for rejecting Papal leadership.
Natsraya is the transliteration of the original Aramaic name of "Nazarenes" which comes from Natsar meaning Guard, Keep, Watch. נצריא from the root word נצר (Ar. nätsär, Hb. nëtsër) n-ts-r from the key letter צ tsade. Natsraya is a plural term to describe an inclusive group of Natsari people. A single male is called a Natsari, and a single female a Natsrati. A group of Natsari women are called Natsrayn. A group of Natsari men are called Natsraya.
Natsraya are a faith - not a religion and not to be confused with the Christianized, organized, hierarchal Nazarenes of today that believe you are saved by faith alone. All Natsraya are equal brethren - There is no hierarchy, no subordination and no especially no priest that one should call "father" (pope is papa meaning father), master, pastor, reverend or rabbi.
We are a humanitarian group that does accept memberships, but unlike churches, our purpose is not to proselyte for members but rather to meet the needs of our communities - our brothers and sisters. We are your alternative to churches and synagogues.
We want our Nazorean Academy of Prophets to be sufficient to meet needs while at times joining ranks with other charities, social organizations, or movements. We are careful to stay focused on good works, but also concerned with excesses and corruption charged against some organizations.
“The life of a man consists not in seeing visions and dreaming dreams, but in active charity and willing service.”
