New Moon and Sabbath 1/4/40/120

Dear Friends,

This is the release of Surah 5 (Q5) of the Commentary on the Qur’an.

This Surah emphasises the covenant and concentrates on the Christians of the Covenant and the conflicts between the Trinitarians among the Byzantines who were/are trying to damage the faith of the Surrender. It is recognised as the last Surah of the Faith and takes the structure of the Covenant on to the last acts of the prophet at Mecca.  It ties the covenant to the faith in obedience to the commandments and observance of religious duties. The main body of the text is tied to the period from the Fourth to the Seventh Years of the Qur’an and Pickthall ties the text to the Fifth to the Tenth Years of the Hijrah.    

The name of the Surah derives from the Second Sacrament of the Faith following on from Baptism. It is The Lord’s Supper and means the Feast or the Table Spread. The text symbolised the Footwashing, Bread and the Wine of the main feast of the faith on the evening at end 13 Abib beginning the Lord’s Supper at 14 Abib before Christ was to be killed as the Passover Lamb at 3pm on 14 Abib and buried before dark beginning 15 Abib, which was the Passover and which began that phase of the Sign of Jonah (No. 013). It refers to the symbolism of the Lord’s Supper set out for the Sacrifice of Christ and is derived from the reference at verse 112 ff.

Pseudo-Christians refer to this as the Eucharist but have trivialised the extreme sanctity of this annual sacrament to a weekly rendition of the sacrament on a Sunday, developed from the Baal or Sun Cults and the worship of the Goddess Easter whose festival was also instituted on the Friday and Sunday of the month of the Passover system. The paganised Arabs of the Hadith have lost all understanding of the symbolism and sanctity of the Lord’s Supper and will be condemned to the Second Resurrection of the infidels and heretics because of it. They also corrupted the Sabbath to a Friday heresy, when we see from Q4 that the Sabbath or Seventh Day of the week is tied to the Covenant.

There are two references, the first at verse 3 which announces the completion of their religion of those of the Surrender which is symbolised by the Lord’s Supper and is the completion of the Faith. Also the last text was uttered as the last of our duties, and the last text at the end of the Surah that refers to the last comments made by the prophet at his last visit to Mecca. That was the “Farewell Visit” when he spoke to the assembled thousands at “Arafat.” Noldeke supposes that two other verses near it are of the same date at the end before his death and the conversion of Arabia. Pickthall agrees with Noldeke in this. Rodwell has placed this as the Last Surah of the Revelation as Pickthall notes but it is better here as it sits in the sequence of Revelation more correctly.

Baptism is the First Sacrament and our entry to the faith and the Lord’s Supper (The Lord’s Supper (No. 103) is our annual and final confirmation of our covenant with God as servants of Christ and priests of the order of Melchisedek (cf. the papers Melchidedek (No. 128) and (128B) and Commentary on Hebrews (F058).

This is our covenant and the confirmation of our Surrender to Eloah as the One True God.
In the text here we emphasise that the text in the Koran uses the Arabic form derived from Eastern Aramaic derived from the Chaldean Elahh.  The Arabic of the Koran is Allah’ or Al Lah’ (both are rendered as Allah, which really means the “The Power” or “The Deity” as does the Hebrew Eloah (Chald. Elahh) who alone is the One True God.  Only He is Ha Elohim as The God, the core of the plurality of the elohim, who are all sons of God of the heavenly host (cf. Job 38:4-7; Ezra 4:23-7:26).
