The Koine Greek Word for “Church” is “Ekklesia”

by | Oct 10, 2019

THE SO-CALLED “CHURCH” as a separate entity from the houses of Judah and Israel, a third option, another dispensational age, or a thirteenth gate into the New Jerusalem, is a man made fable. It simply doesn’t exist anywhere in Scripture. There’s no such thing as a privatized Hebrew non-church state divided into two houses and a completely separate church-age country club, by which the Gentile is able to indulge in.

The Greek word for church is ekklesia. Our entire false paradigm of a New Testament non-Hebrew grace-based church-age as something completely separate from an Old Testament works-based Hebrew religion comes almost exclusively from our usage of one word.


The thing is, ekklesia was employed all throughout the Septuagint.

I can hear the heresy alarm sounding off right now.

“Wait, hold on Noel, are you saying that the ‘church’ existed in the Law and the Prophets too?”

I’m so glad you asked.

And yes, that’s precisely what I’m saying.


See, where the Masoretic Hebrew Text uses the term qahal, the Septuagint usually employs the Koine Greek term ekklesia (or ἐκκλησία for all you Greek readers out there). It matters little. Written in either Koine Greek or Hebrew, both ekklesia and qahal denotes the very same thing—a “multitude, company, congregation, assembly, or summoned group.” Literally, it means “they who are called out.”

It is so tragic that two-thousand years of man made doctrines have construed, convoluted, and confused a simple straightforward love story into a heap of something that’s not even recognizable in Scripture anymore. [YHWH] called His congregation, His ekklesia, out of Egypt and into covenant with Him at Sinai. It’s that simple. Pick your house—Judah or Israel.

There’s no third option.


Miss Rivqah is born!

AND no, she wasn’t born standing up. That would be totally amazing if true. Rivqah is nearly 4 months old now, her birthdate being on July 7, and as you can see, she loves standing with assistance. Sarah and I are in our 40’s, have been married for over 20 years, and never thought we could have any more children. Rivqah decided to surprise us when we least expected it, and here she is, tada! all smiles. Yahuah is truly amazing. Expect plenty more of her in upcoming announcements. I may throw her in when you least suspect it. You can read her birth story here.

Miss Rivqah.

Rebecca L. Gould: A growing family at TUC!

IN my last newsletter I made mention of Rebecca L. Gould without ever giving a photo reveal. Well, here she is. The lovely Rebecca. Rebecca came to TUC during the summer of 2021 after following the breadcrumb trail from Rob Skiba and Nephelim research and soon thereafter began following the Torah. She has been an enormous help to the TUC ministry ever since that time, editing books for publication as well as running the podcast and administrating the TUC community, among other  tasks. ‘The Earth Not a Globe Review: Volume I’ and ‘The Legends of the Jews: Volumes I-IV’ would not have happened without her. 

New Article Archives

A GREAT deal many of my readers have been asking for a single page where my articles can be accessed and I don’t blame them. The sheer volume has become dizzying. Just know that the list provided here is far from complete, though I do say it’s a good start. It’s not that I’m holding anything back. I have been attempting to convert my catalogue of work into pdf files over the last so many months and that is no small easy task. The greater bulk is published all throughout my website. You’ll have to fish for them until I get around to it.
