Coptic or Coptic Egyptian (Ⲙⲉⲧⲣⲉⲙ̀ⲛⲭⲏⲙⲓ Met.Remenkīmi) is the final stage of the Egyptian language, a northern Afro-Asiatic language spoken in Egypt until at least the seventeenth century CE. Egyptian began to be written using the Greek alphabet in the first century CE. The new writing system became the Coptic script, an adapted Greek alphabet with the addition of six to seven signs from the demotic script to represent Egyptian phonemes absent from Greek. Several distinct Coptic dialects are identified, the most prominent of which are Sahidic and Bohairic.
Cairo (Arabic: القاهرة transliteration: Al-Qāhirah), which means "The Vanquisher" or "The Triumphant", is the capital city of Egypt. It is the largest city in Egypt and Africa's most populous city. While Al-Qahirah is the official name of the city, in Egyptian Arabic it commonly shares the dialect's name for the country, transliteration: Masr. Inhabitants of Cairo are called Masraweya rather than Masri within Egypt.
Mishna.exe or the The Mishna is the 3rd century compilation of the Jewish/Rabbiunic Laws which Jesus refered to many times when he confronted the people or pharisees with, "You have heard it said..." Also available as Palm Doc Files

They Loved the Torah
What Yeshua's First Followers Really Thought About the Law
Did Yeshua observe the Law? Did Paul teach his congregations to abandon the Torah? Was the devout Jew, Peter, persuaded that the Commandments were cancelled? The answers you'll find in this book may surprise you!
Even though many Jews believe that Paul taught against the Law, this book disproves that notion. Most Christians are disconnected from the Torah; reading this book will reconnect them. Dr. Friedman makes an excellent case for his premise that all the first followers of Messiah were not only Torah-observant, but also desired to spread their love for God's entire Word to the Gentiles to whom they preached.
Part 1 Yeshua and the Torah
Part 2 Yeshua's Talmidim and the Torah
Part 3 Reactions to the Torah Observance of Yeshua and His Followers
Part 4 Torah Observance: Legalism or Love?
David Friedman, former academic dean of King of Kings College in Jerusalem, holds a Ph.D. in Judaic studies and an M.A. in Arabic. 144 pages. ISBN 1-880226-94-4
Here's what they're saying about They Loved the Torah:
". . . a highly readable, well-presented discussion of a significant subject--the Jewish nature of Yeshua, his followers, and the movement they started . . . a must read."
Dr. John Fischer--Rabbi, Congregation Ohr Chadash, Clearwater, Florida.; Director, Menorah Ministries; author of The Distortion
"A book worth reading especially for those who are new to the Messianic Jewish movement and its biblical foundations."
The Messianic Times, Fall 2001
"A well-informed discussion which will help New Covenant believers think about the place of Torah in their lives."
David Stern--author and translator of the Jewish New Testament and Commentary, the Complete Jewish Bible, and other Messianic Jewish books
". . . contains not only sound scholarship, but was written by a humble Jewish scholar, one who loves both the living Torah (Yeshua), as well as the written Torah."
Ariel Berkowitz--author and leader of Kehilat Neve Tzion, Jerusalem
"Meticulous, relevant and fascinating! If New Covenant faith and Torah observance are important to you, this is the book for you".
Stuart Dauermann--President, Hashivenu Inc.; Rabbi, Ahavat Zion Messianic Synagogue, Beverly Hills, California
