      Dear All,

      St.Jacob Baradeius is to be respected as a saint,no
      doubt,but Syrian Orthodox church survives by spirit
      of God or word of God,not by might of anyone. The
      name jacobites came along Jacob Baradius is only an
      instant cause,or he is only tip of the iceburg.There
      is more deep truth than that.Its is as follows.I
      quote the English translation of explanation given
      by St.Sleebo from old BOOK,(I dont know who is
      Sooriyakkar as refered by st.sleebo exactly)

      "...This particular name 'Jacobites'(Yakkobayakkar)
      is only for Syrian Church and no other church.This
      ideal and most suited name for us were not selected
      by us,but God willingly gave it,to be called by this
      insulting name,for Christ beared the insult of cross,
      for those who are insulted will be rewarded"...."
      Today whoever is called by name Jacob he is of a
      redeemped race, for whoever is called by name of
      Jacob will be saved, for Jacob(son of Issac, also
      called Israel)was saved"......"Among Christians only
      Jacobites are called by name of Jacob. According to
      Holy Bible they are truly the offspring of Jacob
      and belong to the tribe of 'Sooriya'. Holy Bible
      testifies that they are from the bone and flesh of
      'Sooriyakkar'...The physical offsprings of Jacob
      are Jews ,because of sins they lost their share in
      house of Jacob,but Jacob has other promised spiritual
      offsprings,baptized, who are the real heirs of Jacob,
      instead of physical offsprings ,spiritual offsprings
      are called by name of Jacob(Jacobites)."Isaiah 42:6,
      49:8, Luke 2:32,Psalm 77:15,Exodus 29:14,31:43-44,
      Isaiah 44:1-5, 41:8,20, 43:1,8, 49:1,12
