Paul Sides Is A False Bible Translator
This Rav Sha’ul Exposed study is about Paul Sides’ Bible translation of the book of Galatians.
Paul Sides, who writes as Rav Sha’ul, has taken it upon himself to translate Scripture. His new book is called, “The Mistranslated Book of Galatians“, which you will soon see is an ironically accurate title.
Here is his post which he shared on Facebook for all to read, https://www.facebook.com/notes/paul-sides/shauls-letter-to-the-called-out-assembly-in-galatia-in-context-by-rav-shaul/10154244089059306
His words are in black, my comments are in red.
Here is his justification of how he interprets Scripture: (I left his misspellings, as they tell you something about the teacher).
What follows is not a word-for-word translation. No translation should ever be done in that manner for many reasons. “Do not add to or subtract from” is not speaking about individual words, but rather the intent and meaning of the text.
That is exactly what happens in a word-for-word translation attempt. The intent and meaning is lost completly and the resulting translation is left void, vague, and uninspired. The Hebraic Mindset, the Idioms, and the CONTEXT of the writers other letters is left out… and we are left to “guess” what Sha’ul was trying to say.
Then add the influence of Hellenism, words twisted into Greek, and the pagan beliefs of the translators themselves… and we end up with what we now have in our English Bibles… a complete lie and total opposite of what Sha’ul believed, taught, and wrote in this letter to the Assembly in Galatia.
He is justifying adding text to the Scriptures, to explain his interpretation. But you will see that he has changed the intent of verses and added false meanings to verses, which he just proclaimed is a violation of Yahuah’s command.
What follows is the proper way to translate Scripture. This translation contains the missing context of all of Sha’uls writings, The Torah, The Heavenly Scroll, the proper use of the Greek words, and how they should have been handled in English.
For the first time, this is the proper translation of the Book of Galatians. This is what Christianity does not want you to know. That Sha’ul was a devout Nazarene, a defender and teacher of The Torah. Sha’ul was literally an expert in The Law and one of the most anointed teachers of his day (or any day).
He is proclaiming that nobody else has translated the book of Galatians correctly.
A word-for-word translation gives you what the Apostle Paul proclaimed, so Paul Sides is effectively telling you that his version is what the Apostle Paul should have written. Last time I checked the Apostle Paul’s words were inspired by the Spirit of Yahuah.
A better approach would be to translate verses word for word, and then provide an explanation to add in more context.
Here is an example of how the Geneva Study Bible gives you the word for word translation, with an explanation that is separate from the Scriptural text:
(3)”I marvel that ye are so soon (e) removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:” Galatians 1:6
(3) The first part of the epistle, in which he witnesses that he is an apostle, nothing inferior to those chief disciples of Christ, and wholly agreeing with them, whose names the false apostles abused. And he begins with chiding, reproving them of unsteadiness, because they gave ear so easily to those who perverted them and drew them away to a new gospel.
(e) He uses the passive voice to cast the fault upon the false apostles, and he uses the present voice to show them that it was not completely done, but in the process of being done.
He continues with his explanation:
Galatians is the #1 most mistranslated book in all of Scripture. Once you read the true tanslation below, you will understand “why”. It is the most amazing testimonty to the Truth of the Torah and place The Law has in our lives. It had to be altered in order to “abolish” Yahuah’s Righteous Instructions by The False Religion… Christianity.
He is claiming that Scripture was altered to make Yahusha sinless and deity, but what you will see is that it is he who is manipulating Scripture to justify his heretical teachings about Messiah.
Here is a summary of what Paul Sides, who writes books under the name Rav Sha’ul, has proclaimed about Messiah:
He was not deity, but 100% human, who was born of the seed of Joseph. He was sinful and needed to be baptized for repentance of sin. And He had to learn obedience like every other human being.
You can read a study many verses which prove those statements wrong, in the Paul Sides Is A False Teacher study:
So now you know his agenda, to change the intent of Scripture and add to the meaning of the text, to make it fit his false explanations about Messiah.
