According to a legend preserved in the Book of Arda Viraf, a 3rd or 4th century work, a written version of The Zend Avesta had existed in the palace library of the Achaemenid kings (559–330 BC), but which was then supposedly lost in a fire caused by the troops of Alexander the Great. This is the complete Zend Avesta in English, a Public Domain version published in 1880 in Oxford.

  1. The Bible says, God visited the Gentiles first, in Acts 15:14-15.

    It also says, The Scripture preached the gospel unto Abraham… 430 years before Moses wrote a word!

    Galatians 3:8,17
    [8]And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.

    [17]And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.

  2. Yes. But the disagreement comes from whether or not that god hates Christians and Israelites. You can’t clump these religions together as if they are equally correct or valuable. If you read all of these books you will see that some religions believe very morally wrong things.

    • MAYBE everything is just dharma/karma in the infinite spinning wheel of time and space, some extremely advanced civilizations like to portray themselves as gods and they possibly created us with advanced genetic engineering, some individual souls come from the true god in eternal state of grace, love and glory which is reached through moksha, stopping the cycle of reincarnation, all the gives and takes of worldly life for the ultimate state of existence. GOOD THOUGHTS – GOOD WORDS – GOOD DEEDS.

        • Men created Cults, not Religions!
          Some people had a spiritual experience, like me, then they tried to understand.
          Can you explain, without God, Edgar Casey riding’s?
          Where from are we getting Good Common Sense, the Intuition, the Conscience?
          Who is controlling all the Life Factors, like the Sun, the Earth position, movement, cosmic radiation,
          etc. etc. etc. so many?
          We are made by God from 2 main parts; the Entity and the Body!

      • The unsewn temple garments tradition Muslims have was inherited from the days when the world religion was Vedic.

        Abraham was a Brahmin from Sumeria, and his cattle were from India.

        The Bible says, Abraham was rich in cattle, it Cain’s grandson who is the father of all who keep cattle and dwell in tents: and in the Rig Veda 8:8 (in some translations) Indra was rich in cattle.

        The Avestas were interpreted from the Vedas, and they’re from India too.

  5. How can we prove that Avesta is older then the Holy Bible? I think most of written ideas comes from the Bible? Those ideas might be transmitted by the scattered Jewish during their exile.

    • All the religions are from the same God. That is there are some similarly among them. All forum prophets followed the instructions from the same God.

      • Sorry, there are mistakes in the above message due to self suggestions of the electronic system.
        All the prophets followed the instructions from the same God, therefore, there are some similarities among their teachings. It is clearly obvious that there are some fundamentals which are universal. Other things are time and space dependent.

          • That is a bit rude. I agree with Shafique. For example when they sat in the Quran that lamps will fall from the heavens does not mean that directly, as it was intended for the people of the time. It means that asteriods would fall onto the erath from space.

    • Acts 15:14-15
      [14]Simeon hath declared how God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name.
      [15]And to this agree the words of the prophets; as it is written,

    • it is older than the bible, in fact the jews where polytheists before they where liberated by Kurush(Cyrus ) from Babylon. they used El’ohim to refer to god, but that is an plural form. the firt Jew that writte about one god was Issac, after the liberation. So most of the base ideas in the whole Judeo-cristian tradition are a copy of mazdayasna. One god the fight betwen good and evil the messiah and of course the final judgment

      • The Final Judgement of God will be on All Humans!
        What did we chose in our body’s life, Hate or Love.
        Most of the people now are ruled by Hate, Fear, and Terror, billions.
        USA was the flame, the light of the Globe, not anymore!
        So what will be the final judgement, the 6th Extinction?

  6. Zand is neither a language nor a style. This is an old Iranian language (Old Persian) word, meaning “Interpretation” or “Explanation”. It means that Avesta was not written in Persian. As we know, Zoroaster was basically from the present day Loralai or Zhob district of Balochistan, inhabited by Pashtoon ethnicity, therefore, it comes clear that Avesta was written in Pashto.

    • Dear Kamran, not any I am aware of. I expect that you need a clean text version for searching. In that case I would suggest that you convert the PDF to a text readable version, then copy the text to a word document for further research. There is a number of tools for that out there. Adobe has some solutions, but you can also find some freewares.
      Best wishes

    • Hi, Zend or Zand, is actually kind of the writing style or the language used to write Avesta. As far as I know, Zend is a part of Avestan language which is used to write Avesta.

  8. Probably impossible for us to ever know the meaning of it but I am sure some phony young college student liberal with an earring and an Obama bumper sticker would be all too happy to try to explain his version.
