Rev. Dr. Rocco Errico $30 Donation
DR. ROCCO A. ERRICO
Rocco A. Errico is the founder and president of the Noohra Foundation in Smyrna, Georgia. He is a gifted and brilliant teacher and author and is one of the most dynamic and sought-after speakers. He offers keys which unlock mystical and metaphysical meanings in Scripture and builds a bridge between our Western ways of understanding and the Near Eastern social realities that are embedded in the Bible. Dr. Errico helps us see the Bible through Semitic, Aramaic eyes — in its original language. Bypassing doctrinal creeds and rigid interpretations, He presents a broader understanding of Scripture without the restrictions of literal explanations.
Dr. Errico’s books include: Let There Be Light: The Seven Keys, And There Was Light, Setting a Trap for God: The Aramaic Prayer of Jesus, The Mysteries of Creation: The Genesis Story, Sodom and Gomorrah: What Really Happened, Aramaic Old Testament Commentaries (6 Volumes), Aramaic New Testament Commentaries (7 Volumes).

NEW Train service to Roanoke!
Passenger train service returned to the region on October 31 with a daily Amtrak train that departs and arrives in Downtown Roanoke. The new stop in Virginia’s Blue Ridge is part of Amtrak’s Northeast Regional Route, making the region easy to reach from destinations like Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, and Boston.
It takes approximately five hours to make the trip to Virginia’s Blue Ridge from Union Station in the nation’s capital!
