The Mystery of Emmanuel

Mar-12-2002 at 09:52 PM (UTC+3 Nineveh, Assyria)

Shlama Akhay,

Another very good question, along the same line of the meaning of "Bar Anash" and "Bar Alaha", is what exactly is meant by the name "Emmanuel."

In Aramaic this name is made up of three parts, "Emman" (#15795, "with us") "Hu" (#5005, "is") and "El" (#642, "God").

"God with us." What exactly is meant by the "with us" part? Is the meaning of "with us" limited to the time that He was physically around on earth - travelling from village to village preaching? Or, does it have a broader understanding - one that is still applicable today and for all time?

Qnoma teaches us the meaning behind Romans 8:3, that a Qnoma of God came "in the likeness of sinful flesh." This does not assert that Christ himself possessed sinful flesh, only that he had a body of real flesh taken from our Qnoma, and such fleshly bodies in other Parsope are given to sinful conduct.

The Parsopa of Meshikha was tempted in all points, yet without sin (Heb. 4:15). So He is able to deal compassionately and justly with those whom he is not ashamed to call his brethren (cf. Heb. 2:11, 17; 4:15).

His brethren? If we don't apply our understanding of Qnoma - how can we be counted as brethren of Him who has no equal? At which level are we to understand this brotherhood? At the Parsopa, Qnoma or Kyana?

Again, we are told that Him who knew no sin he made to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in him (2 Cor. 5:21; cf. 1 Pet. 2:24; 3:18; Rom. 5:8: Jn. 10:11; Mk. 10:45).

Once again, are we speaking of the Kyana of God having been made sin? God forbid! Are we speaking of the Qnoma of God having been made sin? God forbid! It is, of course, at the level of His human Qnoma which the act of redemption is sealed.

How else are we to understand these things properly - unless we return to these ancient words and concepts that the Gospel itself was revealed in?

"Emmanuel" is the subject of the Parsopa within whom two Qnome are inseparably united, one ours and one His - with us and our humanity, now and always.

In concluding the Great Commission, this Parsopa announced: Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world (Matt. 28:20).

The Psalmist could confidently claim: YHWH of hosts is with us (Psa. 46:7).

Excellent point akh Paul. This insight and the diagram helps us all understand Qnome better. Todah.

Assyrian \ã-'sir-é-an\ adj or n (1998)   1:  descendants of the ancient empire of Ashur   2:  the Assyrians, although representing but one single nation as the direct heirs of the ancient Assyrian Empire, are now doctrinally divided, inter sese, into five principle ecclesiastically designated religious sects with their corresponding hierarchies and distinct church governments, namely, Church of the East, Chaldean, Maronite, Syriac Orthodox and Syriac Catholic.  These formal divisions had their origin in the 5th century of the Christian Era.  No one can coherently understand the Assyrians as a whole until he can distinguish that which is religion or church from that which is nation -- a matter which is particularly difficult for the people from the western world to understand; for in the East, by force of circumstances beyond their control, religion has been made, from time immemorial, virtually into a criterion of nationality.   3:  the Assyrians have been referred to as Aramaean, Aramaye, Ashuraya, Ashureen, Ashuri, Ashuroyo, Assyrio-Chaldean, Aturaya, Chaldean, Chaldo, ChaldoAssyrian, ChaldoAssyrio, Jacobite, Kaldany, Kaldu, Kasdu, Malabar, Maronite, Maronaya, Nestorian, Nestornaye, Oromoye, Suraya, Syriac, Syrian, Syriani, Suryoye, Suryoyo and Telkeffee. — Assyrianism verb
