The Gospel of Mark was the first one written.
It began without going into the genealogy of Eashoa Msheekha. There is very little introduction -- maybe because Eashoa didn't come officially as a religious leader, nor a ruler.
The Gospel of Matthew was written second, but it was placed as the first Gospel by the compilers of the New Testament. The Gospel of Matthew, with its genealogy of Jesus the Messiah, presented the basis for a new religious order, ostensibly: Christianity -- the way the Old Testament Torah was the basis for the Jewish faith.
The Gospel of Matthew was also the basis for the Western Churches: Jesus the King of Kings inaugurating His Rule on earth and passing the power to Peter and the Disciples.
The Roman Church followed suite without missing a beat: the Pope was the Vicar of Christ, infallible in matters of faith, and the successor to Peter, the Rock Upon Which Jesus Built the Church.
The Protestant Churches picked up where the Popes left off, and Reformed the Roman Church, reducing the excesses of power and overblown rituals.
The Orthodox Churches scrambled for legitimacy and adopted their versions of the faith in Jesus the Messiah.
But they all maintained the order of the New Testament books, with the genealogy of Jesus plus the Laws of Moses.
Moreover, all the Churches adopted the customs of the early Jewish Apostles and followers of Eashoa Msheekha. They established their own orders of Popes, Patriarchs, Archbishops, Bishops, High Priests, Priests, Deacons, and Elders.
In order to have a Bible that encompassed the laws and rules of the new faith, which they called Christianity starting in the 2nd Century AD, the Western Churches adopted a Greek and Latin translation of the teachings of Jesus the Messiah. Because the Greek New Testament was conformed to the Greek Septuagint translated two hundred years before Jesus. The emphasis was on the royal descent of the Messiah.
And by placing the Gospel of Matthew with its genealogical history first, they wanted to give the impression that Eashoa had come as a king of this world.
This notion was also held by the religious establishment of that day, 2000 years ago. It was according to the Laws of Moses and not according to the cumulative prophecies of the Old Testament Scriptures.
The Old Testament according to Eashoa Msheekha, however, revealed the journey of faith that every nation and individual is to go through in order to be saved, redeemed, born again, and taken up to heaven to live eternally with Maran Eashoa Msheekha.
The genealogy at the beginning of Matthew gave the wrong impression to those people who took this to be an affirmation of the Jewish religious order, first the Law then the Kingdom. But this was not the intention of Maryah. The Kingdom was 'not of this world' and it would come after the Faith in His Name was preached to all those who would accept it.
Since the established Jewish religion of the time did not expect the Messiah to come as an ordinary man but as a king, they did not think Eashoa was the Messiah. The Gospel of Matthew with its genealogy was placed first by the compilers of the New Testament to show that Eashoa was the Messiah prophesied by the Old Testament Scriptures. But there was no need to prove Eashoa's human lineage, since what mattered was His heavenly lineage: Eashoa was the Milta (Manifestation) of the Father. And the Holy Spirit was the conduit for Maryah in the Universe.
The Gospel of Mark, which is believed to have been written and circulated as a scroll in Judea first, begins with Eashoa being prophesied by Isaiah the Prophet of the Old Testament, and begins with Eashoa picking twelve disciples and proceeding to accomplish His Mission on earth. Eashoa did not pick twelve scribes, Pharisees or high priests. He picked twelve ordinary people, who were fishermen.
After Eashoa Msheekha taught them for three and a half years, after He gave His life on behalf of all those who accepted Him, and after He was resurrected and rose to Heaven, the Disciples went back to fishing. Eashoa had to come back and remind them to go out and do the work of apostleship. That was His whole mission; they had to preach His Message and proffer His Heavenly Kingdom.
They were not to become a new religious establishment like the Pharisees and Scribes, the High Priests and Elders. The Disciples were ordinary people with an extraordinary mission. It was unprecedented: to go out and preach what the real Scriptures were about.
What are the Scriptures, if not for Maryah's Children to preach the Message of Eashoa Msheekha?
What are the Scriptures, if not for the revelation of who Maran Eashoa Msheekha really is?
What did Eashoa say in His own language regarding that?
How did Eashoa connect the Old Testament and the New Testament?
These are the kind of questions you will be able to learn how to answer here. It is not just what is the name of God or how to pronounce the name of Jesus in His own language; it is the doctrines that Eashoa clarified.
I'm going to read the Gospel of Mark from the Ancient Aramaic language and make a series of video commentaries about it in the near future.
