Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Wednesday, August 17, 2016 at 12:00 AM We receive questions from time to time about the Cepher Yashar (Book of Jasher).

Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Sunday, July 24, 2016 at 12:00 AM We, at the Eth Cepher, have set forth the name of the Messiah (HAMASHIACH) as YAHUSHA.
