All articles and research about GOD, on my web sites and this blog are about the ONE TRUE Father GOD, who is the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

As are all my articles and research about Jesus, are under His covenant name of the begotten Son’s personal name of Yeshua.

It is not my purpose to force you to agree or believe with what's on my websites, but rather to share my research.
As the record goes. I'm Just a soul who's intentions are good. Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood. I am Simon Brown. Amen.

Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand! Matthew 11:15.
Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the
SON of God?
1 John 5:5.
NOT GOD OR A TRINITY, but as St john has said: but he that believeth that Jesus is the SON of God? 1 John 5:5.
And as Jesus has said: ETERNAL LIFE is believing His Father GOD is the only ONE TRUE GOD alone. John 17:3. Which is the FIRST commandment one MUST believe. Mark 12:29.

And Hezekiah prayed before the LORD and said: “O LORD, the God of Israel, enthroned above the cherubim, you are THE God, you alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; you have made heaven and earth. 2 Kings 19:15.


Dear friends, just to remind you, as I am a human being, I am capable of making mistakes. If you believe I am wrong, don't let it go, but please be kind and let me know. Thank you.

But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good. 1 Thessalonians 5:21.

Matthew 28:19, The Trinitarian formula “Father the Son and Holy Spirit” YET AGAIN, Another Trinitarian FORGERY.


Matthew 28:19, The Trinitarian formula “Father the son and Holy Spirit” YET AGAIN, Another Trinitarian FORGERY.

English Standard Version
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations,
 baptizing them in the name of the
 Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit?
Matthew 28:19.


Notice what we read in ALL translations of: Matthew 28:19?

We read what clearly looks like there are,
 THREE SEPARATE beings.
1. The Father.
2. The Son.
3 The Holy Spirit.

According to the Trinity faith, as we read by the Trinitarian commentaries below, this scripture is a Trinitarian formula.
 Let’s for a moment agree with them.
Click on image to enlarge.


Even though there is NO mention of The Holy Spirit being a SEPARATE being, this is still a popular scripture used to support the TRINITY faith.

We know that GOD the Father and His Son Yeshua, are BOTH separate beings, as they clearly taught us they are Father and Son, which is a requirement to believe to be saved, John 3:16.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

But there are NO scriptures throughout the whole Bible teaching The Holy Spirit, is a SEPARATE being.
And there is nothing in this scripture or ANY saying all THREE are ONE GOD.


Yet this scripture is used to support the Trinitarian concept of a “tritheism” (three Gods), called the Catholic doctrine of the TRINITY.

Trinitarian’s not understanding, who have become experts at contradicting what they believe, saying in one hand, there is ONE GOD, who is ONE, but in the other hand GOD is not ONE but THREE.


Therefore Matthew 28:19 cannot be correct, if it is saying there are THREE SEPARATE BEINGS, because that equals THREE SEPARATE (GODS) and NOT ONE GOD, if they are all GOD.

And if there are THREE GODS and NOT ONE, this would CONTRADICT the whole word of GOD, who always declared, from the BEGINNING to the end, He is GOD alone.
And Hezekiah prayed before the LORD and said: “O LORD, the God of Israel, enthroned above the cherubim,
 you are THE God, you alone, 
of all the kingdoms of the earth; you have made heaven and earth. 
2 Kings 19:15.

The Trinitarian formula also CONTRADICTS the simple fact that Christianity emerged from Judaism, and is a monotheistic religion.

So these Biblical facts already raises many red flags.

But could I be wrong, that this scripture reads: baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, in Matthew 28:19, and be genuine?

On my latest research, I decided to check out Matthew 28:19, where we read the Trinitarian formula “Father the son and Holy Spirit” to see if there is anymore evidence to prove if this is true, or false, or that this is another Trinitarian FORGERY.


But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good. 
1 Thessalonians 5:21.

I believe we should not believe what people teach, without doing our own research, and without investigating the foundations of our own faith, with fear and trembling St Paul said.
St John said: 

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.
 1 John 4:1.

We are humans and capable of error. In this case I was delightfully surprised to discover my previous research was correct, and that the Trinitarian formula “Father the son and Holy Spirit” is indeed a FORGERY.


The deceiving fact is:
In all the translations, even in the codex sinaiticus, and vaticanus, we find the Trinitarian formula:
 “Father the son and Holy Spirit. 


Matthew 28:19, The Trinitarian formula “Father the Son and Holy Spirit” YET AGAIN, Another Trinitarian FORGERY.


Matthew 28:19, The Trinitarian formula “Father the Son and Holy Spirit” YET AGAIN, Another Trinitarian FORGERY.

Hebrew Gospel of Matthew. 
But guess what? There is a complete copy that scholars believe was handed down from the original writing of Matthew Himself, now known as: Shem Tob’s (or Shem Tov) Hebrew Gospel of Matthew.

Rabbinical translations of Matthew From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

On top of that, the author Papias wrote around the year 100, confirming a Hebrew Gospel of Matthew. 

Who was: Papias of Hierapolis?
Papias (Greek: Παπίας) was an Apostolic Father, Bishop of Hierapolis (modern Pamukkale, Turkey), and author who lived c. 60–130 AD.[2] It was Papias who wrote the Exposition of the Sayings of the Lord (Greek: Λογίων Κυριακῶν Ἐξήγησις) in five books.
This work, which is lost apart from brief excerpts of Irenaeus of Lyons (c. 180) and Eusebius of Caesarea (c. 320), is an important early source on Christian oral tradition and especially on the origins of the canonical Gospels.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Many of the early church Fathers also made reference to this Hebrew Gospel of Matthew, again proving it indeed existed, taking this translation back before ANY other translation of Matthew’s Gospel, where we shockingly discover this Trinitarian formula is MISSING from Matthew 28:19, and instead reads:
Matt 28:19-20 "Go and teach them to carry out all the things which I have commanded you forever."

On top of these interesting facts, there are more Biblical facts, and these important facts, reveal that there is NOT a SINGLE Trinitarian formula that reads the same or anything like the phrase:  “Father the son and Holy Spirit. 

But how can we be sure that Matthew 28:19 is in fact, another forgery?

Remember to follow the example of the Berean Jews, and to search the scriptures daily, as Jesus confirmed: We will find if we seek. Matthew 7:7.

With that in mind, when we search the scriptures, what do we find wrong with Matthew 28:19? Well, let’s have a look and see (the following are all from the English Standard Version).


For he had not yet fallen on any of them, but they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
 Acts 8:16.

On hearing this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
 Acts 19:5.

And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”
 Acts 2:38.

And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they asked him to remain for some days. Acts 10:48

But when they believed Philip as he preached good news about the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.
 Acts 8:`12.

Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?
 Romans 6:3.

For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
 Galatians 3:27.

As we clearly see, yet again, there is NOT a SINGLE Trinitarian formula that reads: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Arguments and debates still continue today, however as we have seen above, the Biblical facts are in the scriptures we read today, that reveal NO Trinitarian formula anywhere in the Bible.


Notice what we read in the scriptures below?
giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. 
Ephesians 5:20

And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. 
Colossians 3:17.

Give thanks in every circumstance, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:18


Did you notice, there is NO mention of the Holy Spirit or the Trinitarian formula in the scriptures above?

Matthew 28:19, The Trinitarian formula “Father the Son and Holy Spirit” YET AGAIN, Another Trinitarian FORGERY.

This reveals another important fact to consider. If the modern translations are correct, why did the disciples ignore the TRINITY phrase?


As they were prepared to die for their faith, which is proof they most certainly followed Jesus in every way, and would not disobey His commands.

This also agrees with the research by Histories greatest scientist: Sir Isaac Newton argued that the Scriptures had been altered and early Christian writers had been misquoted to make it appear that Trinitarianism had been the original faith.” See Newtons link below.

Even more evidence can be found in the fact that Saint Jerome had access to a copy of the original Hebrew of Matthew’s Gospel, and also did not include the Trinitarian formula.
 “the Gospel which the Nazarenes and Ebionites use” (Jerome; On Mat. 12:13)
 “the Gospel which the Nazarenes and Ebionites use” (Jerome; On Mat. 12:13)

So, once more we have some fishy business going on here. Why and who changed the scriptures by adding in: ‘of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit’, which does seem to have been added in at a later date to promote the trinity doctrine.

My Conclusion.

I believe the very fact the Trinitarian formula: “Father the son and Holy Spirit” is in the codex sinaiticus, and vaticanus, and yet is MISSING from the Hebrew Gospel of Matthew, is ‘substantial evidence’ that the Hebrew Gospel of Matthew is an older translation and was written before the codex sinaiticus, and vaticanus, which confirms why the author Papias confirmed there was an original Hebrew Gospel of Matthew at the year 100.


And remember, although there are NO teachings of the TRINITY in the codex sinaiticus, and vaticanus, except in Matthew 28:19, scholars have dated both to the forth century, the same time period when the TRINITY doctrine was being established, which could explain why the Trinitarian concept was starting to creep into the manuscripts and establish its roots. COINCIDENCE?

Is it also true that ALL or most known manuscripts before the time of A.D. 325, when the TRINITY doctrine was being established, the last page containing Matthew 28:19, with the Trinitarian formula happens to be MISSING? Were they removed and burned as we are told many books and manuscripts were at the time Constantine established the Trinity doctrine? Another COINCIDENCE.



The Didache, also known as The Teaching of the Twelve Apostles.
The Didache, also known as The Teaching of the Twelve Apostles.

On the other hand, there are those who claim the Didache, an early handbook by an anonymous Christian community, proves that the Trinitarian formula “Father the son and Holy Spirit” is genuine, because in the “anonymous” handbook, they teach and mention the practice such as baptism and Eucharist, and Church organisation, which includes the Trinitarian formula: “Father the son and Holy Spirit”

And as the Didache handbook was a very early document believed by most scholars to be dated to the first century, it therefore proves the Trinitarian formula is genuine.

The first fact against the Trinitarian formula in the Didache handbook.

However, as always, this is debated, other scholars date the text to the late 2nd century AD, [3] a belief still held today. (13)
(3) ”Didache.” Cross, F. L., ed. The Oxford dictionary of the Christian church. New York: Oxford University Press. 2005. Slee, Michelle (2003).
(13) The church in Antioch in the first century AD : communion and conflict. London [u.a.]: T & T Clark International. p. 58. ISBN 978-0567083821.

The second fact against the Trinitarian formula in the Didache handbook.

The Trinitarian formula is not found in the Hebrew Gospel of Matthew, which is not anonymous, and has many references dating it back to 100 ad, proving the scholars who date the text to the late 2nd century AD, are proving to be more reliable.

The third fact against the Trinitarian formula in the Didache handbook.

I found this interesting point that says: Scholars generally agree that 9:5, which speaks of baptism “in the name of the Lord," represents an earlier tradition that was gradually replaced by a trinity of names.


baptism "in the name of the Lord," represents an earlier tradition that was gradually replaced by a trinity of names.

So in one hand we read in the Didache anonymous handbook, we have them teaching the Trinitarian formula.

And then in the other hand, we read they themselves speaking of the baptism “ in the name of the Lord,” A clear contradiction, confirming with their own hands, they themselves indeed knew the baptism was in the name of the Lord, Jesus, only.

What do you believe?
Is it true, that Matthew 28:19, The Trinitarian formula “Father the son and Holy Spirit” is YET AGAIN,
 Another Trinitarian FORGERY?

Rabbinical translations of Matthew

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Rabbinical translations of Matthew are rabbinical versions of the Gospel of Matthew that are written in HebrewShem-Tob's Matthew, the Du Tillet Matthew, and the Münster Matthew, and which were used in polemical debate with Catholics.
These versions are to be distinguished from the Gospel According to the Hebrews which was one or more works found in the Early Church, but surviving only as fragmentary quotations in Greek and Latin texts.
Some scholars consider all the rabbinical versions to be translated from the Greek or Latin of the canonical Matthew, for the purpose of Jewish apologetics.[1] This conclusion is not exclusive. Other scholars have provided linguistic and historic evidence of Shem Tov's Matthew coming from a much earlier Hebrew text that was later translated into Greek and other languages. Early Christian author Papias wrote around the year 100: Matthew composed his history in the Hebrew dialect, and everyone translated it as he was able.[2] [3]

Rabbinical Jewish versions[edit]

Early Rabbinical citations of Matthew, 600-1300[edit]

Quotations from Hebrew translations of portions of various New Testament books - including the epistles of Paul - can be found in rabbinical treatises against Catholicism. These treatises multiplied wherever Jews lived in proximity to Christians - such as Spain before the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492.
  • Sefer Nestor ha-Komer; "The Book of Nestor the Priest", 7th century. Contains significant quotes from Matthew, apparently from a Latin text.[4]
  • Toledot Yeshu; "Life of Jesus", 7th century.
  • Milhamoth ha-Shem; "Wars of the Lord" of Jacob Ben Reuben 12th century, which cites texts including Matthew 1:1-16, 3:13-17, 4:1-11, 5:33-40, 11:25-27, 12:1-8, 26:36-39, 28:16-20.
  • Sefer Nizzahon Yashan; "The Book of Victory" (in Latin Nizzahon vetus), 13th century.
  • Sefer Joseph Hamekane; "Book of Joseph the Official" of rabbi Joseph ben Nathan, 13th century (Paris MS).
Jean Carmignac (Paris 1969, BNES 1978) identified fifty Hebrew translations of the Lord's Prayer from the 9th to the 18th centuries.[5][6][7] Most scholars consider that the medieval Hebrew manuscripts are derived by translation from medieval Greek or Latin manuscripts, and therefore that it is extremely unlikely that any of the unique readings found in these medieval Hebrew manuscripts could be ancient.[8]
Four principal versions in rabbinical Hebrew of Matthew have survived or partially survived:

Shem Tov's Matthew, 1385[edit]

The Shem Tov Matthew (or Shem Tob's Matthew) consists of a complete text of Gospel of Matthew in the Hebrew language found interspersed among anti-Catholic commentary in the 12th volume of a polemical treatise The Touchstone (c.1380-85) by Shem Tov ben Isaac ben Shaprut (Ibn Shaprut), a Jewish physician living in Aragon, after whom the version is named. Shem Tov debated Cardinal Pedro de Luna (later Antipope Benedict XIII) on original sin and redemption in Pamplona, December 26, 1375, in the presence of bishops and learned theologians. Nine manuscripts of The Touchstone survive, though if an independent version of the text of Matthew used by Ibn Shaprut ever existed then it is lost.
Spanish Jews of Ibn Shaprut's period were familiar with the New Testament in Latin. Jacob Ben Reuben in his Wars of the Lord translated Gilbert Crispin's Disputation of Jews and Christians from Latin into Hebrew, along with quotes from Matthew. Lasker (1998) remarks that "By the fourteenth century, most likely every Iberian anti-Christian Jewish polemicist knew Latin." Moses ha-Kohen de Tordesillas made proficient use of Latin phrases. Profiat Duran (fl.1380-1420) had extensive knowledge of Latin Christian texts, and devoted a chapter of his Disgrace of the Gentiles (Klimat ha-goyim) to criticism of Jerome's Latin VulgateHayyim ben Judah ibn Musa argued with Nicholas de Lyra in his Book of Shield and Spear (Sefer magen va-romah).[9] Likewise converts to Christianity such as Abner of Burgos (Alphonso of Valladolid, ca. 1270-1347) continued to write polemical, theological, philosophical, and scientific works in Hebrew.
Shem Tov's The Touchstone (Eben = stone, bohan = test) has never been translated into English or published. It follows the model of Milhamoth ha-Shem of Jacob Ben Reuben in use of Matthew but contains not just sections of Matthew as Jacob Ben Reuben, but the whole text of Matthew and parts of Mark. George Howard excised the text of Matthew from among Shem Tov's comments and published it separately as The Gospel of Matthew according to a primitive Hebrew text (1987), a revised version Hebrew Gospel of Matthew (1995).[10]
Shem Tov's quotations of Matthew in The Touchstone are marked by Jewish thought, and are interspaced with the comments of the author. As a consequence several scholars[who?] feel it is difficult to determine which parts are Shem Tov's commentary, and which parts are the actual text of the source he was quoting. Many scholars[who?] view the text as a mediaeval translation from the Greek text of the Gospel of Matthew, as well as being the likely source of all later Hebrew versions of Matthew prior to the 20th century.
Where the Tetragrammaton occurs in Tanakh quotations, instead one finds a single Hebrew He (ה) except in one place where the word "ha-shem" (השם, the name) is spelled out. There are some interesting readings of Matthew in The Touchstone.[11]
  • Matt 12:37 "According to your words you will be judged, and according to your deeds you will be convicted."
  • Matt 24:40-41 "40 Then if there shall be two ploughing in a field, one righteous and the other evil, the one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding at a mill; one will be taken and the other left. This is because the angels at the end of the world will remove the stumbling blocks from the world and will separate the good from the evil."
  • Matt 28:9 "As they were going Jesus passed before them saying: 'May the Name deliver you.'"
  • Matt 28:19-20 "Go and teach them to carry out all the things which I have commanded you forever."
  • Mark 9:20-28 is placed into the text of Matthew between Matt 17:17 and 17:19. Matt 17:18 is omitted.[12]
While the quotations in Shem Tov’s The Touchstone, which are interspersed in his own commentary, diverge from the canonical text of Matthew, the text of the Münster Matthew and the Du Tillet Matthew are significantly very close to it in many passages.

Jude 1:4, is a perfect scripture that seems to make this point very clear.

For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

In an article called What Is Messiah? Jewish Messiah or Christian God by Rick Richardson, he writes:
In his article Cosmic Codebreaker, Pious Heretic, about Sir Isaac Newton (for Christian History Magazine), Karl Giberson writes: “Newton began a sustained reflection on the Christian doctrines and decided that the Anglican status quo was a thorough corruption of the true, original Christianity.
These considerations led him to write over a million words on theology and biblical studies—more than he wrote on any other subject. “Newton's theological investigations convinced him that the doctrine of the Trinity was bogus, a successful deception by St. Athanasius in the fourth century.
Newton argued that the Scriptures had been altered and early Christian writers had been misquoted to make it appear that Trinitarianism had been the original faith.”
