About Us

 
SWCS Media provides resources and links with a view to answering difficult questions at this most amazing time we are living through. Through the New Testament it reconciles our timeline via the Romans, the Greeks and the Egyptians, back to Noah and Adam with that Hebrew timeline which says that the year Sep 2019 - Sep 2020 CE is 5780 AM or the 5,780th Anno Mundi, year of civilization, Adam. And according to the New Testament it's 6,037 years from Adam based on 2008 years of The Father — Adam to Abraham, 2008 years of The Son — Isaac to Jesus, 2008 years of The Holy Spirit — Establishing the Kingdom, then a statement of "peace" on Rosh Hashanah on Sep 23rd 2006 (click here to see this timeline). What does that mean?

We have his promise, there's nothing covered up that won't be revealed. And we've never had so much historic data, timelines published worldwide, at our fingertips.

So, click here for the timeline of the translations of our Bible.

We just need to be persuaded that every word in the Greek and Hebrew texts published back in the 1500s together with Jerome's Latin translation published way back in 405, reflected God's edited protected inspired oracles having zero errors when establishing facts. Certainly billions of printed and electronic bible translations in every language are based on those scripts, coming from a much **simpler era (and vocabulary). And then, reconcile the historic timelines, whenever discrepancies were entered knowingly (or not) elsewhere.

** From the first Hebrew word "B'resh ith" (In the beginning) in Genesis 1:1 to the last word "Amen" in Revelation 22:21, scholars (and computer programs) have counted 443,114 words in the original languages — 304,901 words in the Hebrew/Aramaic Old Testament, and 138,213 words in the Greek New Testament (latest NA28 edition).

One scholarly account, Strongs Concordance first published in 1890, shows there are 8,674 unique Hebrew/Aramaic words excluding prefixes and suffixes with 641 words accounting for 80% of the Hebrew text. There are 5,523 unique words in Biblical Greek of which 319 account for 80% of the Greek text. For students with minimal (or zero) knowledge of the original alphabets, his numbering system has enabled them to start studying any Biblical Greek or Hebrew word by simply entering its code.

  • You can look up chapters and verses. Enter a space between the book name and its chapter number, and put in a colon if specifying a verse number. Three character abbreviations are fine, eg 1co for 1 Corinthians.
  • You can lookup individual word(s) using the English alphabet.
  • You can lookup individual word(s) using Hebrew or Aramaic by entering a capital "H" prefix before its Strongs numeric code (H1 - H8674).
  • You can lookup word(s) in Greek by entering a capital "G" prefix before its Strongs numeric code (G1 - G5624), noting that codes G2717 and G3203 - G3302 are unassigned.

"And we hold more certain the prophetic word, to which you do well taking heed, as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until this day shall have dawned, and the Lightbearer shall have arisen in your hearts.
First knowing this, that any prophecy of scripture does not come into being of its own private interpretation.
For the prophecy was not brought at any time by man's choice, but being brought of the Holy Spirit, men spoke from God." 2 Peter 1:19-21
