The word used in the Torah for sex between husband and wife comes from the root "yod-dalet-ayin" meaning, "knowledge." Some believe "P" may have been Jeremiah. "R" (for redactor) combined J, E, and P into the first four books of the Torah, and then added D. The surprise is the name of the temple which is recorded as having sent the money - Anat/Jaho.

A man could not swear the oath on behalf of his daughter or his wife. But as both Persian and Jewish savior-mythology evolve, the Saoshyant - and the Messiah - take on a special, individual, almost divine quality which will be very important in the birth of Christianity. Indeed, in the Middle Ages, Jewish philosophers regarded the study of God's created nature as a religious obligation. Jews are obliged to observe the Law given by God. On the other hand, the Church was ever busy infusing into the popular mind the belief that those rites which served as symbolic expressions of the faith were endowed with supernatural powers, "sacrament" being the Latin word used for "mysterion," the name given to forms which had a certain magic spell for the believer.

My intention was to explain this puzzling concept and to open up the sealed areas in the Torah regarding the verses of “face to face” and other similar references, but its length would be tremendous and it would require numerous proofs from the Torah and other sources and encompass many areas. That these groups existed at all points to a creative and individual set of minds within Judea searching for a better way than the institution of priests which were thought to be corrupted.
