If you’ve read our history you know Virtue TV evolved in 2012 while publishing a New Testament Study Bible. Over 2 billion people base their relationship with Abba Father on the New Testament, by far the most influential Book that ever existed. In March 2019 we undertook the AHAV Bible Project, a completely new and innovative publication of the New Testament like nothing attempted before. The scope this project would require several pages to explain, the digest version is: over the last decade, having gained access to ancient Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek manuscripts, databases, fragments of Scripture, Dead Sea Scrolls, New Testament history, writings, and using the latest computer software and technologies we’re bringing it all together to reconstruct the most powerful New Testament Bible that had ever been put into one binding.
Since 1973 our team leader has been drilling down through layers of Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek, Latin and modern texts to better understand the original teachings of Yeshua (Jesus). The last few years brought awesome discoveries of how and what our Master Yeshua (Jesus) taught about the Kingdom of Heaven.
Translations of the Greek New Testament blend values of philosophy, mythology, and pop culture into the narrative, “virtue” is one example. Our English “virtue” is derived from the Latin “virtus” and the Greek “arete“. From a Greek and Roman perspective “virtue” is any kind of “excellence” generally thought of as “moral excellence”. Embedded within the majority of Western Culture is the idea that a virtue is a trait of moral excellence, an admirable pursuit no doubt but far deeper elements of virtue are found in ancient Hebrew Bible.
The Hebrew “chayil,” is where virtue originated, it also translates “army” in more than 80 Bible verses, and power, powerful, capable, valiant, strength, riches, bold, wealth, etc. One of the most beautiful elements of “chayil” is found in Matthew 26:64 “…you will see the Son of man sitting at the right hand of chayil (power) and coming upon the clouds of heaven.” There are hundreds of places in Scripture directly relating to God’s people being gifted with His “chayil“ or “righteous power“. This is where “ministry” begins.
Consider the difference between knowing about “virtue” or being a powerful warrior. People don’t fail because they’re not aware of God’s will, but because of the lack of power to conquer and move forward. Millions of well-meaning souls are praying for power, but what if one day these beautiful souls discovered the power was there all along, they simply hadn’t garnered the tools or relationship with Abba Father to receive His Power?
The AHAV New Testament Bible project is like no other. AHAV stands for Aramaic Hebrew Amplified Version but “ahav” is also how we say “love” in Hebrew. The AHAV Bible project is already empowering God’s people, but it will also drop a bomb on false religion like nothing else since the days of the Apostles. We’re accessing every publication and database of Aramaic and Greek New Testament texts that we can find, including every Aramaic and Hebrew word in the Dead Sea Scrolls and drilling down into the original Kingdom of Heaven mind that penned the original New Testament.

The Kingdom of Heaven mindset is the nature of man before sin. Scripture tells us who we are, why we’re on earth, and what Abba Father says of His Kingdom. Terms such as “tselem b’Elohim” the image (shadow) of Elohim (God) in man; “nephesh chayah” the living soul in man, “neshama” the breath of Elohim (God) in man, “ruach Adam” the spirit of man are some of the ways we understand our relationship with Abba Father.
While there are Jewish, Christian, modern, and ancient Hebrew mindsets that interpret these elements, there’s also a “Kingdom of Heaven” mindset that ties these concepts into an eternal continuum. The Ahav Bible project brings these threads together like no other publication. The “amplified” elements are not translation or commentary on the narrative but precise reconstruction of the original God-given “Davar” (Word) from Ancient Hebrew.
