History of Virtue TV
From December 2006 to March 2019 Baruch Ben Daniel published an Aramaic (5th Century Syriac Aramaic Christian version) to English New Testament study Bible. While authoring over 600 footnotes and 200 pages of appendixes in the course of five editions, Baruch was heavily engaged in discussions about closing the gap between religious ideals about virtue and the original Ancient Hebrew Scriptures and New Testament teachings of virtue.
Baruch launched Virtue TV in 2012 while experiencing new empowerment in his personal life, and witnessing virtue growing in the lives of many around him. His ongoing studies in ancient Hebrew and Aramaic Scripture revealed many beautifully elegant images of human excellence and perfection. Virtue TV was destined to be the outlet here’s a brief timeline.

2019 Compiled content for the AHAV New Testament Bible. Restructured VirtueTV.org. Launched premier fundraiser for Virtue TV projects.
From March 2012 to August 2014 Virtue TV produced a series of pilot programs and concepts including, Alive With Virtue, Virtue Goes Viral, Virtue Investigates, Virtue Visits, The Leadership Review, The Living Torah, and Young Entrepreneurs. However, in August 2014 on the day that Virtue TV completed construction of a new TV set and recording studio Virtue TV came under attack by a group of religious leaders. We had been welcomed to use a commercial location, but after paying for and building our new set we were denied access to the studio and others claimed and used it for their sole use. It was to be the official launch of Virtue TV but our efforts turned into a legal claim for damages. Three provincial court judges refused to hear the case, our legal counsel believed it to be a clear case of unjust enrichment against Virtue TV to go before the BC Human Rights Tribunal. We opted to not spend more time and resources on the matter. Baruch personally shouldered the entire financial loss but gained invaluable lessons on how Charismatic Christian witchcraft paralyzes the lives of many well-meaning Christians.
September 2014 to August 2019 was period of regrouping and regathering while Baruch and his spouse Adele (married October 2016) prepared to launch a series of publications including the AHAV New Testament Bible, the Architecture of Biblical Hebrew, and Virtue Rising.
August 2019 saw a restructuring of VirtueTV.org, introduction of new online content and a series of brochures introducing the goals of VirtueTV.
From the inception of Virtue TV in Canada and the USA until August 2019 there was no fundraising campaigns, financial support came from our team leader and a small handful of souls. As we head into 2020 we hope to bring publications and video content viewers and appreciate your tax-deductible support.
We’re more excited than ever to bring powerful, life-changing content to the world.
You are invited and more than welcome to join us on this virtuous journey.
The Virtue TV team.
