About Cepher Publishing Group
Welcome to the home of Cepher Publishing Group! We are a small boutique publisher engaged in bringing forth ancient manuscripts from around the turn of the millennium (that is, from B.C. to A.D.). As part of this process, we publish a book called the את Cepher, which you see on our home page.
We are a small group with small resources but big hearts! While incorporated in Washington, our warehouse can be found in an undisclosed location deep in the wilds of Montana. We spend a lot of time removing snow during the winter, and a few winters ago there was so much snow, we had no place to put it all!
Even with this great blessing, the area itself was tried with a devastating wildfire over Labor Day weekend in 2017. Lightning sparked a fire in the forests of Montana which eventually encompassed over 29,000 acres, stretching all the way into Canada! This fire grew and grew, drawing within 1.5 miles of our warehouse. Although many neighbors suffered great losses, by a miraculous hand, the winds turned north and spared our facility.
Our group initially came together back in 2012 during a trip to Israel. We had gathered at House 57 in Eastern Jerusalem during the Feast of Cukkoth (Tabernacles) in anticipation of wonderful things to happen, and sure enough, wonderful things did happen, and Cepher Publishing Group was born!
Once the group was formed, we sought out and found our US-based printer who also uses paper created in the US and cover materials created in the US; it was a win-win!
Our company has always been based on prayer, and the answers to prayer. Our work has been a labor of love for many years prior to forming Cepher Publishing Group, and all of our corrections are steeped in prayer and careful consideration.
After launching the את Cepher scriptures, we undertook to publish a complimentary line of books we call the Cepheriym, and have come to be known on the website as Dr. P's Library Collection. This collection may be purchased with or without the את Cepher.
The library is continually growing, with our most recent additions being the Third Edition of the Yom Qodesh (our scripturally based calendar), Ha’avoth (the Fathers) and Shamayim (the Heavens). The writings of Yocephus are included in our library, and we anticipate greatly expanding this selection of books for the student, the teacher, the parent, and the preacher!
After several years of diligent work, our Spanish Translation Team completed the Español Cefer, and we started shipping the first copies in May 2020.
In addition to our book publications, we also began to write more extensively about our research in the Blog section of our website, where you can find nearly 350 discussions of what we are doing (and what we have done) in the את Cepher. We also have a Facebook page, a Twitter feed, and an Instagram account, as well as a presence on YouTube where you can view hundreds of videos including the latest presentations. Our newest venture is the launch of CEPHER Radio where you can listen live to our teachings.
As we began to expand, we were approached by people in different countries around the world who wanted access to our book. We were beginning to reach an international market! As excited as we were, we quickly discovered that many countries have high tariffs and shipping costs could be more than the cost of the book! As a result, we began to create a distributor network which may be accessed on our website under the Distributor tab. If you are outside the US, we encourage you to look there first.
Our company would not be much without the help of our friends who refer their friends to our website. We began to build this community back in 2014, and now, our Affiliate referrals make up 40% of our business. We are very thankful for this community and their friendship.
It has always been part of our work to do onsite research to assist with our understanding of scripture. For instance, part of our discovery of the presence of the את (Aleph-Tav) in the New Testament (Brit Chadasha) was our finding the placement of the same on a text that was set up on the wall at the Church of St. John the Baptist in Ein Kerem, Israel. We entered the inner court to find the passage of Luke 3 set forth in some fifty languages.
When we read the Hebrew, we discovered that the את (Aleph-Tav) was found also in the New Testament.
In our continuing research, we draw from our connections all over the world to build our understanding of the history of the faith. For instance, below is a picture taken in Llandiff Major, Wales, the site of a 1st Century Cor (Church) that was founded by none other than Yoceph of Arimathea. Shanes Stokes and I took a moment to reflect on the place.
