                 The Beit Din which was associated with SANJ has become a separate entity under
                 a new organization called the "International Board of Netzarim."

                 The old Beit Din associated with SANJ has been discontinued.

                 I have been appointed the Nasi/President by the other members.

                 By the way, the Beit Din web site is not at Teshuvah Gate, it has its own

                 The Statement of Beliefs of the new Beit Din are the beliefs of the Beit Din,
                 the old Statement of Beliefs is that of SANJ.

                 The "Virgin Birth" is also not denied. It is currently considered a belief
                 which should not divide Netzarim. It may eventually be considered not a
                 salvation issue, and therefore it is not necessary to be in the SOB.

                 > b)The Ketuvim Netzarim/New Testament Scriptures is reduced in authority
                 > to the status of "Mishnah/Oral Tradition".

                 The Ketuvim Netzarim is placed in a position of 4th in level of inspiration: 1)
                 Torah, 2) Prophets, 3) Writings, 4) Netzarim 5) Sages.

                 Please be more specific about your comparison of our SOB with Ebionites.
