First let me say that I am a mere human being that was born into a sinful nature and only by the grace of God almighty and the salvation found in Jesus Christ will I be found acceptable. I pray that you take my words as one weary travelers discoveries and that my intentions are not point fingers at any one denomination or belief system.
My life experience has shown me the detailed workings of the Protestant Church to include my participation in seminary and collegiate Bible training, the complete catechism of the Catholic Church and a review of the Quran. None of these were capable of answering many nagging questions concerning the scriptures.
After 40 years of "church life" I stopped following the crowds and began a study of the scriptures in the original Hebrew and Greek. Paralleling events in history with the scriptures and deciphering the effect of these events on the lives and theology of the believers.
I pray that the information provided here has a three fold effect: 1. provide truth not otherwise provided by the corporate church experience 2. Answer questions that others are either afraid to ask or afraid to answer, and last but not least, 3. bring people to a saving relationship and closer walk with YHVH.

Jesus’ ministry wasn’t 3 1/2 years. That was a later doctrine of the Roman Church – hundreds of years later. Until that doctrine was introduced to support the Roman-Catholic Pope’s 1,000 year reign (long past, huh?) as Jesus returned to reign on earth, prior theologians said nothing about 3 1/2 years! John 6:4 speaks about a Passover “of the Jews”. Hint, Jews wouldn’t have written it that way and John (Yochanon) was a Jew! Jews knew Passover was God’s feast, not theirs. It is a proven later insertion to the text (to make the ministry 3 1/2 years). Jesus’ ministry followed the Feasts of Yehovah (commonly in English, Jehovah) “for about a year” as recorded by theologians for the first few hundred years. It was not 3 1/2 years.
