This book is a eye opener!If a person were to read this book and not get ofended of the things the writer points out and research the points made. Than one would be forced to realize that what is taught on sunday is full of pagan sun g-d traditions.I am no teacher just a believer in search of the truth!
Scripture over Tradition.
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 17 years ago
This is a book that a reader will either find offensive or revealing. Regardless of that,it is well-written and documented. Mr.Koster gives detailed quotes in the book,like "the Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday,a day which we never sanctify."-Cardinal Gibbons in "Faith of our Fathers". The author wrote about some errors in certain Bible translations and that's something that has been known for some time. What may not be so well-known is the background of some of the "early church fathers". Fascinating information! I investigated a statement in this book with the Jersualem Bible. Rev 17:5 does indeed have a footnote regarding "Babylon the Great" in that passage."Babylon is the symbolic name for Rome" is the footnote. He quotes numerous Scripture pertaining to the Name of God. Mr.Koster also discusses the motive for claiming the resurrection occured on a Sunday. An upright stake being used in the crucifixion is something I have read about previously. An excellent book if you want study traditions in the light of Scripture and history!

The previous reviewer, "Roy" obviously approaches this text from the "cheap seats" as opposed to the "playing field" of textual and biblical criticism. The assertions set forth by Koster in Come Out of Her My People as they relate to language, custom and tradition are true. What has been spoonfed to the masses as Chrisitanity is not the historical, scriptural faith of Israel or its Messiah. Whether we want to believe it or not, the Almighy has a specific Name on those ancient Hebrew scrolls, (and it is not God or LORD) as does the one mis-called "Jesus". These are matters of textual and historical fact. The church doesn't like these kinds of things Koster presents, as they lay bare the church's roots as having much more in common with ancient pagan Rome than ancient Scriptural Jerusalem. The scrolls say what they say-and they communicate a specific ancient Hebraic faith in the Redeemer of Israel. Take it from a former baptist preacher and seminary student-you need to read this book. I came upon this book after beginning my own research into the roots of Christianity. Upon reading this book, I saw further documentation of disturbing facts I had already dug up, as well as new information and perspectives on many I hadn't yet seen. Bottom line: You need to question why you believe what you believe and Come Out of Her My People is a great primer. The book essentially asserts that Christianity was not and is not the faith that was communicated by a Jewish Carpenter 2000 years ago. His name was not "Jesus", but Y'shua. "Jesus" being a later Greek corruption and not even translatable back into Hebrew and Aramaic, which were the languages of the Messiah, His followers, and Judean detractors. The faith of this band of Galilean fisherman was simply Judaism realizing the promise of the Messiah. Evidence of this is clearly seen in Acts 24:5 & 14. Here Rav Shaul (the Apostle Paul) answers his critics who have accused him of being a leader of the sect (or denomination) of the Natsarim (Nazarenes), a denomination of Judaism following the carpenter from Natsaret (Nazareth). Shaul answer their charge by affirming that yes, according to the Way that the Pharisees and Saduccees call a sect, the Natsarim, he, Shaul, does follow the Torah (Law of Moses) and the Neviim (the writings of the prophets-Isaiah, Jeremiah, etc.) and keeps the faith of his fathers (Abraham, Issac, Jacob, Moses, etc.). So we see that Paul continued to be and live and practice as a Jew, as did all of the first century believers up until the persecution by Rome that resulted in the destruction of the Temple and the separation between Jewish and Gentile believers around 70 A.D. According to the scrolls of Scripture, in spite of our translations over the past 1900 years, there is no such thing belonging or relating to the Almighty known as "the church". Forget the whole "Bride of Christ" trip. The Messiah has had the same bride for 4000 years. Her name is Yisrael. Yisrael was
