The New New Testament
Meet Ken Maley, or as he refers to himself, “The Scribe.” Ken has written a new version of the New Testament. Wait, scratch that, Jesus and the authors of the NT, “Asked Ken to rewrite the NT the way they would want it today.”
In this New New Testament the scribe was told to restore John’s Gospel to its rightful place as the first Gospel, as reflected in ancient Aramaic Manuscripts. Thus this New Testament will begin as did the Old Testament: “In the beginning,” as a sign that it is meant to supersede much of it. Revelation was to begin again with Jesus. This change of position of John’s Gospel puts the two books of Luke—Luke’s Gospel and Acts—back together as they were initially.
We must realize that Jesus was not simply to continue the Revelation of the Old Testament, but came with a radically different Message about God, Spirituality, and Community. His God was his “Dad”—”Abba” in his native language. That one word alone transcended much of the Old Testament, but all the original Apostles were Jews formed in the Judaism of the day, which had strayed a great deal from the Covenant of Abraham. Over and over Jesus upset the Jewish leaders of the time by preaching and acting a different Message. But much of his radical intimacy with God was lost on the Jewish Apostles, the authors of the original New Testament, and its translators.
For example, some scholars have pointed out that the passage usually translated, “I have not come to change the law, but to fulfill it,” should actually be translated, “I have not come to change the law, but to abolish it.”
The translators or scribes who changed this passage could not believe what Jesus had said, so they simply changed it to fit their own beliefs.

I dont’ know about you, but as Bob says, “Personally, I have always found the recommendations of “Person with ties to India and Hinduism” to be quite compelling.” Actually, I am almost speechless at what is here.
When “The Call” came in 2009 to undertake this task, The Scribe was worried that people would think he was delusional or worse. Turns out it was pretty much the only thing he was right about!
