Talmud Jmmanuel


Talmud Jmmanuel

Talmud Jmmanuel (TJ) is a purported ancient text in Aramaic that the Swiss UFO contactee Eduard Albert Meier, along with an ex-Greek-Orthodox priest named Isa Rashid, pretendedly discovered south of the Old City of Jerusalem in 1963. According to Meier, Isa Rashid kept the manuscript and sent him the translation in 1974. The first edition in German came out in 1978. It is described by its promoters as the source text (often termed the "Logia", or the "Q document") of the Gospel of Matthew, which is claimed to demonstrate extraterrestrial origins for the Bible. The spelling Jmmanuel was commanded to Meier by space aliens [ [http://home.swipnet.se/corbie/Fuskwww/talmud.html. Hoaxbuster:Talmud Jmmanuel] ] .The document is generally considered to be a hoax, and it is not taken seriously by any Bible scholars [http://home.swipnet.se/corbie/Fuskwww/dear.html] .

Claims

The publishers [http://www.steelmarkonline.com/products.htm (Steelmark LLC)] of the "Talmud Jmmanuel" claim the document was first translated from old Aramaic into German by [http://www.tjresearch.info/isa_rashid.jpgIsa Rashid] and edited by purported UFO contactee Billy Meier [http://www.theyfly.com/ 1] , its co-discoverer, then translated into English by B. L. Greene and J. H. Ziegler. The publishers also make the extraordinary claim that the document "could indicate an extraterrestrial origin for the New Testament."

Hoax

According to the Swedish Lutheran-Episcopal priest Åke Eldberg: "This book is the work of 'Billy' Eduard Albert Meier who was born in Bülach, Switzerland in 1937. His obvious Biblical hoax has all the usual characteristics: no (original Aramaic) manuscript is available, the text only exists in modern translations, the 'find story' is unlikely, and it contains anachronisms and obvious 'prophecies after the event'." [http://home.swipnet.se/corbie/Fuskwww/talmud.html]

In turn, Eldberg's claims have been attacked by [http://www.tjresearch.info/resume.htm James Deardorff] , a Research Professor Emeritus of Atmospheric Physics at the University of Oregon. Deardorff argues that Eldberg ignores some 300 comparisons between the TJ and the Gospel of Matthew which, Deardorff claims, favor the authenticity of the TJ and not that of the Gospel.

Publications

There have been several books written about the TJ and its history. The 4th edition has been published in 2007 by Steelmark Publishing.
