Nazarenes Asia - - - - 400 C.E. Cavendish, Richard (ed.). Man, Myth & Magic: An Illustrated Encyclopedia of the Supernatural (vol. 6). New York: Marshall Cavendish Corp. (1970); pg. 768. "Remnants of Jewish Christianity survived in various places in Palestine, Syria and Egypt until the 5th century. Its members clung to the original tenets of their faith, being characterized by their observance of the Mosaic Law, their belief that Jesus was of human origin, and their hostility to Paul. They are known only through the garbled and prejudiced accounts of orthodox Christian writers, who regarded them as heretics.

"Ebionites ('Poor Ones'): Jews who believed that Jesus was the Messiah but kept many of their Jewish practices and split with Paul over his dismissal of Mosaic law or Torah. They believed that Jesus was human but not divine, accepted only the Gospel of Matthew, and disappeared after the 5th century. A similar group called the Nazarenes considered themselves Jews and believed in Jesus as Messiah, but they differed from the Ebionites in accepting Christ's divinity and supernatural birth. "
Nazarenes Syria - - - - 250 C.E. Cavendish, Richard (ed.). Man, Myth & Magic: An Illustrated Encyclopedia of the Supernatural (vol. 13). New York: Marshall Cavendish Corp. (1970); pg. 1721. "Christianity in Edessa, however, was not exclusively encratitic. Before the sect of Encratites, Jewish Christianity had come to the city, possibly from Jerusalem (see Ebionites). These Jewish Christians called themselves Nazorees or Nazarenes, as the Syrian Christians did later on. The Manichean Kephalaia preserves a debate on Mani with a Nazoree about the problem of whether God... "

(1970); pg. 1828. Caption: "Ceremonies in which traditional dancing plays an important part link the Nazareth Baptist Church with the tribal past.

Nazareth Baptist Church South Africa - - - - 1970 Cavendish, Richard (ed.). Man, Myth & Magic: An Illustrated Encyclopedia of the Supernatural (vol. 13). New York: Marshall Cavendish Corp.

Nazi Germany's dictator who was dedicated to 'cleansing' Germany of all non-Aryans and establishing a new state (the Third Reich) for 'the Master Race' by the 1940s... Although there were Nazi sympathizers in the U.S. as early as 1933, the American Nazi Party wasn't officially founded until 1958... The Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith estimates that there are no more than 400-450 members of the American neo-Nazi movement today, a 50 percent drop since 1978. Neo-Nazism has been so unpopular, in fact, that some neo-Nazis deserted the movement to join the more widely accepted Ku Klux Klan... Nevertheless, racial hatred has a tendency to stick around, and the neo-Nazis won't go away. Today there are at least a dozen different Nazi organizations. "

"Skinheads have not been the first Americans to describe themselves as Nazis. In 1958 George Lincoln Rockwell founded the American Nazi Party... Although many have characterized the American Nazi Party as all but defunct, few have dismissed the skinheads' embrace of Nazism. This is due to the fact that these young, would-be Nazis have aligned themselves with an organization called the Whte Aryan Resistance (W.A.R.) run by Tom Metzger. "
Nazism USA - - - - 1994 Thompson, S. E. Hate Groups. San Diego, CA: Lucent Books (1994); pg. 29. "The skinheads are probably the most open about their Nazi views, but other groups share these views. Some of these groups were formed by people who took part in the American Nazi movement of the 1930s and 1940s. Many of these people still hold Nazi beliefs. However, the groups they lead today are joined together by a religion called Christian Identity. "
