Scriptural Saints: The EW and WW “Trinity” Differences: QNOMA.

It is a bigger world out there folks! Sometimes despite the fact we know that, for where some things are concerned, we forget there are other areas which are quite important to comprehend;

Let’s take for example, for this DOC, the issue that the EW (Eastern World) of Biblical Saints use different Bibles than the WW (Western World) of Bible Saints, and the philosophies, conceptions, theories, doctrines, are different... 

I’ve previously addressed that the EW Canon of the aka NT (The Gospels, etc.) for scriptural teachings only contains 22 Books; the other 5 lacking for the WW, are called the “Western Five” (2 Peter, 2 John, 3 John, Jude, and Revelation);

Some of the differences between the 2 Worlds are small, insignificant, minimal, on up to drastically different. One of the differences, were concepts are concerned, is where the EW & WW differ under the concept called “Trinity” (its label, or attached labels, i.e. Triune, etc.); So let’s give them suffixes! That’s been my thought for 10+ years on the issue anyway. Trinity-EW (1st One) and the later invention of Trinity-WW, which is an inversion of the Trinity-EW version!

Actually, in the 1st decade of the 21st Century, I decided that if people couldn’t make up their minds on its definition(s) on the word, I may as well toss the word out of my vocabulary! But as of the year 2018, I got a better grasp on what’s going on here... the issue is the “EW version” which differs from the “WW version”;

Now, as for “Trinity-EW” version, according to Victor Nimrud Alexander, (Native Fluent Aramaic Speaker and Ancient Languages Scholar) which has published many works in his lifetime (his D.O.B. is 05/7/1943), expressed it this way: 

The word “q'nu-mah,” theologically, exists only in ancient Aramaic. There are three “q'nu-mee” with reference to “The Mighty One, the Father”, “The Messiah” and “the Holy Spirit”, each “q'nu-mah” is one of the three “Essences” of the Trinity.

 “Essences” itself is not a proper translation, only a rough approximation. The triune “Q'nu-meh” of the one Father-Son-Holy Spirit, (CRH: which is the “EW Trinity version” for Scriptural Saints, be they in the East, or in the West, which go by EW Scriptures.); 

In this sense, the Messianic version seems compatible, or at least close, to the EW Version... they use the word ‘aspects’, where others may use the word ‘essences’. From what snippets I read, the Chinese version of the Qnoma seems to be similar as well, or at least close.

Now ya know, since we have Social Media Sites/Forums, when the word “trinity” is brought up, without specifics (as is such generally noted in Biblical Forums on the Internet for decades now), some of us have to ask questions like “which one?”; “Which version?” (are you referring to?); 

Let’s take a look at the 3 verses and where it’s noted elsewhere in Alexander’s AONT 2013 Bible:

Colossians 2:15 "And by sending out His apostles from His body, they spread [His commandments] to all the thrones and authorities, and He put them all to shame by the manifestation of His Trinity." 

John 5:26. “Because as for the Father there is Life through his trinity, so also He has given the Son Life through his trinity; 

John 17:14. “I gave them your Miltaⁿ and the worldⁿ hated them, for they were not from the world, just as I am not of the world. 

Textual Notes: ⁿ17:14. 1 Aramaic retained. “Trinity.” ⁿ17:14. 2 “People.” 

Hebrews 1:3. “So as they may be the yeast of His [Son's] glory and in the image of His existence, and that he may muster all of them by the power of His Milta{1}, and it was with that Essence of His Trinity that He cleansed our sins, He Who sits from the right of the Supreme throne in the Highest.”

Textual Notes: {1} Dialectal issue... Some translations render the word as "Miltha".

Romans 6:18. So as with two immutable Expressions of Will,ⁿ through Whom The Mighty One{1} cannot be falsified, that our hearts may be greatly uplifted, so as we may abide completely in Him and partake of the Hope of the Kingdom bestowed on us. 

Textual Notes: {1} Dialectal issue... same as "Alaha/Aloha", the equivalent for the Hebrew/English word "Eloah" / “Elohim”, Common English: "God" ("[the] Mighty One", which is generally which I use for these types of generic words/terms, which all mean the same anyway).

ⁿ6:18 Manifestation of the Trinity. 

NOTE: Aramaic Scholar Paul Younan notes, Please appreciate the beauty of the archaic meaning of Qnoma when you read Hebrews 9:28! "Likewise also, Meshikha was offered one time - and in his Qnoma (Human) bore the sins of many." 

2 Corinthians 12:15 • I would gladly do the ousting,ⁿ however, and even lay down my life on your behalf,ⁿ even though the more I love you, the less you love me.

Textual Notes: ⁿ12:15. 1 Literal expression: “Oustings oust.”

ⁿ12:15. 2 “And also q'numee I give over the faces of your souls.”

Andrew Gabriel Roth, an opponent of what he refers to as the “Traditional Trinity”, and he prefers the term “Oneness” (Not to be confused with a WW Version), expresses in his AENT Bible, (CRH: abridged excerpts from his textual notes for Matthew 28:19 & Revelation 1:8), that “YHWH is One and His “Oneness” is expressed as “One Tree, Three Branches” metaphorically and also expressed linguistically with Y’shua the Son having the same Name as the Father (John 17:1-11) and with the Ruach HaKodesh ("Set-Apart Spirit", or "Holy Spirit") being another title for Abba YHWH like “YHWH-Yireh” and so on (Psalm 51:1-11; Isaiah 63:1-11); As a result, imagine three branches of the same tree rather than three separate trees.

Each branch is united by the Name/Title of the One Divine Personality that is YHWH Elohim; This linkage is established in Exodus 23:20-22 where a Messenger, unlike any other “angel” can forgive sin because YHWH says, “for My Name is in Him”. All other “angels” have  “EIL” / “ÊL” in their name but Y’shua’s Name is above the angels, hence Yah/YHWH is in Y’shua’s name (Matthew 1:21, Hebrews 1:1-5).

Nazarenes have from the very beginning taught salvation in the Name of YHWH. 

At either rate, the Qnoma includes the numbers of “1” and “3”; the catch is, appropriating and apportioning them properly.

As to the campaign, the word “trinity” is not in “the” Bible, that is incorrect, because I have at least one here, (I know of 2 others, by the same translator... EW to English Bibles), where it is indeed in there, and presented here, be it a legitimate declaration title/word or not.

At either rate, the number “3“ does play a major role in Hebraism.

A better term might be that “Holy Spirit” is an “Attribute” title for YHWH.
