What the Testament of Yahuwah Really Is

Ibriy (Hebrew)/Kasdiy (Chaldean)
The word "testament" does not appear in the Ibriy (Hebrew) portion of the King James Version of the Scriptures. A similar word, "covenant," does appear many times. This is what our Eloah, whose name is Yahuwah (yah-hoo-wah), made with people throughout scripture. The final "covenant" which we are under today is sealed with the blood of Yahushua. The Ibriy word is beriyth and it means a compact or contract.

Greek
In the Greek portion of the Scriptures, the word testament is rendered from diatheke, which means a disposition, or specifically, a contract. It is also rendered as covenant.

Modern Definition
The legal disposition of ones' property by a written will. Either of the two principle sections of the Bible (incorrect definition)

A statement of belief
All of these modern meanings carry the same connotations that the Ibriy and Greek words carry, so they all mean basically the same thing as the renderings in the scriptures.

Convincing evidence

Notice the distinction of "old" testament from "new" testament. The old testament is not the writings from B'ereshiyth (Genesis) through Mal'akiy (Malachi), but is really the Law of Mosheh (Moses). The "Ten Commandments" are really the "Ten Words" and are separate from and given before the Law of Mosheh. All of the rest of the Ibriy scriptures are considered to be the Prophets and Writings, which include the Songs (Psalms). The New Testament Law is the Law of Grace, or as Yahushua explained it to the lawyers and Pharisees who were trying to entrap Him:
