Agree with the librarian. No one has to open or download the files if they don't want to know.  Personal choice. It doesn't ruin the release at the convention, but makes me be sure I am in my seat, listening to the talk. And I have had plenty of experience in attending conventions (baptism in 1942).

The site JW.ORG asks if you have attended the convention before you see the downloads. If your a true Christian then you might want to answer before you review them? That way you don't bother your conscience or others too. Just a thought? Some can't get to a convention and as last year have tie-ins. Thankful for this provision from Jehovah! Agape to all. I've been in the Truth 62 years now. 

Peace from Jehovah! ?????

@Bob Sacamano ask jw.org why them put them up. Not me.

AGREE !! 
Is it not the last years, that the OFFICIAL PAGE posts all new releases ? and why? 
Is it not that EVERYONE shares messages with the new releases on every email possible? YES 
--------------------------------

ANOTHER QUESTION 

=====================

WHY the videos are on the internet BEFORE the convention ? -- IS THIS MY VIDEOS ??? (or your videos OR the Librarians videos that you see )  ?? THIS MEANS THAT THE ONES WHO HAVE ACCESS TO THEM, ARE THE ONES who share with everyone !!

(my comments)
1. I know that EVERYONE on their own personal facebook will refuse it, and NOONE on the “closed” / ‘secret’ facebook groups will post it, but am sure everyone will look for it !!
2. To help you understand what I want to say …. This is what happened before … .remember …. The same way it happened with the new silver bible (NWT), EVERYONE share it with their own e-mails (they had no problem to receive the news) but NOONE would like to comment about it (the NWT) on the facebooks, etc. .. ALSO ONLY  the ones who speak English/American learned these (about the NWT) news FIRST of all. 
Which means that all of us who do not speak English could not know these news about the new release that time.
3. while EVERYONE, when at the same time, (and I mean everyone on this planet) ! likes to receive e-mails with any news or releases, THEY HAVE NO PROBLEM WHEN they receive such mails with anything NEW !!! – it means that they do not deny it, or they never say “why you send me that”

Remember the time when special occasions like the “annual meeting” taking place in the US, when the rest of us, did not have any email, did not speak American/English and did not have the chance to attend such special meetings in our life time.

NOW ALL OF THIS PROGRAMM IS FREE to access globally all over the world !

WHAT A GREAT CHANGE THAT IS  !!!

(which means that THERE IS A NEED FOR THAT !!!!)

Now imagine, that I DO NOT SPEAK English, I HAVE HEALTH PROBLEMS, my family is not in the truth, I DO MY BEST IN MY LIFE and I would never have the happiness to watch these special events !!

Why did you accuse the Librarian of posting these things in the past, when NOW ALL OF THIS PROGRAM IS FREE ?

IF I AM A person with health problems, HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO ENJOY SUCH SPIRITUAL MEETINGS ???

I want to say that ALL THE BROTHERS AND SISTERS who have health problems, THEY TRY THEIR BEST FOR JEHOVAH ! HOW HAPPY WE ARE THAT ALL OF US NOW CAN HAVE THE POSSIBILITY TO ENJOY SUCH WONDERFUL MEETINGS !!!

From the moment this book is available for download, 
NOBODY ASKED this question: “why this book is on the internet” !!

    Hello guest!
 
... online message reads:

You know, the conscience is an amazing thing. The second greatest gift the Jehovah gave humans is free will. You have the freedom to obey, or to NOT obey. You people say, if the official site didn't put them up, there would be no way to access them. And you're right. Except that, there is a disclaimer that requires free will, honesty. You're asked if you have attended a convention, and you're given two choice: Yes; No. Your answer gives a pretty good indication of what kind of person you are. If you say no, you cannot access the releases. If you say yes, but you are lying, you can access the releases. But for what? You've already shown your character. You are a liar. Is that what anybody really wants to be? Really?

You know, there is another example of the character examination where honesty, and integrity; loyalty, and faithfulness, was on display. At the beginning of human history, Satan challenged Jehovah's right to make decisions for the things that HE created. He was called a liar by one of those creations. Then he was abandoned by two more. Yes, Adam and Eve, and Satan, all once served Jehovah. But when He asked them to be obedient under the simplest tests of faith, they all failed. They all selfishly used their free will to satisfy their own selfish longing. When the Branch designed the disclaimer, they knew that some would be dishonest, but their integrity would not allow them to deny all of us the opportunity to demonstrate that we are of the highest character and integrity. The "high road", versus the "low road". Those of you who defend the lying, and cheating, and in effect, the stealing of things to which, you are not entitled, demonstrate who you are. Have a great life!

    • Correct. I’m basing myself on the calendar year as ascribed by the ancients. to 610/609 BCE Rightfully so. There were other sources other than Max Hatton that could have contributed to sound research. SAOC 24. Richard A. Parker and Waldo H. Dubberstein 1942 CHRONICLES OF CHALDAEAN KINGS D.J. Wiseman 1956 For the works of Edwin R. Thiele, you would certainly consider Leslie McFall, which also gave an opinion on the BOOK: Richard A. Parker and Waldo H. Dubberstein, Babylonian Chronology 626 B.C.—A.D. 75 Therefore, any references to a subject, even if it was difficult to acquire? It could have been obtained.
    • Home of Capernaum where Apostle Peter stayed? Interesting! CAPERNAUM (Ca·perʹna·um) [from Heb., meaning “Village of Nahum”; or, “Village of Comforting”]. A city of major importance in Jesus’ earthly ministry, located on the NW shores of the Sea of Galilee. It had a tax office, where Jesus called Matthew to be his disciple ( Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. ), and perhaps a military post, for a centurion resided there. ( Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. ) These indications, plus the fact that an attendant of the king, wealthy enough to have slaves, lived there ( Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. ), all seem to make it likely that Capernaum was of some size and importance and hence worthy of being called “a city of Galilee.”— Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. . Two principal sites have been suggested as the original location of Capernaum. The ruins of Khan Minyeh (Horvat Minnim), situated on the Sea of Galilee at the NE corner of the Plain of Gennesaret, were viewed by many as the probable location of Capernaum, but excavations there indicate that the ruins are of Arab origin. This leaves Tell Hum (Kefar Nahum), an extensive ruin about 4 km (2.5 mi) farther along the shore to the NE from Khan Minyeh, and almost that same distance SW of the point where the Jordan River enters the Sea of Galilee. The coastal plain here is quite narrow, but in ancient times a road led from the Jordan down past Capernaum and through the Plain of Gennesaret to connect with the great trade route leading from Mesopotamia and Damascus, through Palestine and on to Egypt. A number of springs flow across the Plain of Gennesaret, emptying into the blue waters of the Sea of Galilee, and the large amount of vegetable matter these springs carry draws large numbers of fish, making the area an excellent location for fishermen.—PICTURE, Vol. 2, p. 739. Early in his ministry, following the marriage at Cana, where his first miracle was performed, Jesus, together with his mother, brothers, and disciples, traveled from Cana down to Capernaum, spending a few days there before going up to Jerusalem for the Passover of the year 30 C.E.— Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. . Later, after beginning his great Galilean ministry and while again in Cana, Jesus performed a long-distance miraculous cure of the son of a member of the royal court of Herod Antipas, the sick child being healed in Capernaum though about 26 km (16 mi) away from Cana. ( Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. ) The news of this miracle evidently spread quickly to the neighboring towns so that, when Jesus moved on from Cana to his hometown of Nazareth, he could say to his listeners in that city that they would likely ask him to do in Nazareth “the things we heard as having happened in Capernaum.” ( Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. ) Leaving Nazareth, where the people had attempted to kill him, Jesus “took up residence in Capernaum beside the sea in the districts of Zebulun and Naphtali” ( Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. ), thereby fulfilling Isaiah’s prophecy ( Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. ) that a great light would be seen in that region by those walking in darkness. It was possibly along the nearby Plain of Gennesaret, SW of Capernaum, that Jesus again met Peter and Andrew (already his disciples;  Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. ) and gave them the express invitation to become his active followers in the ministry, doing the same thereafter for James and John. ( Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. ) Following this, Jesus preached in the synagogue of Capernaum, healing a demonized man in attendance, and from this strategically located city the report of his preaching and miracles “kept going out into every corner of the surrounding country.” ( Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. ; see  Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. .) The home of the fishermen Peter and Andrew was in Capernaum, and here Jesus healed Peter’s mother-in-law; after this, the house was besieged by people bringing ill and demon-possessed persons to him for healing.— Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. . Following a preaching tour of Galilee, accompanied by the four disciples called from the Capernaum vicinity, Jesus returned to Capernaum, which by now could be called “his own city,” the place where he could be said to be “at home.” ( Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. ) Again the crowds flocked around the house, and on this occasion Jesus healed a paralytic who was lowered through an opening in the roof. ( Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. ) Later, coming upon Matthew in the tax office, Jesus issued the call to him, and Matthew became the fifth disciple to join in the active ministry with Jesus. At Matthew’s house in Capernaum Jesus attended a big reception feast at which there were many tax collectors, a group despised by the Pharisees.— Hello guest!

After going into Judea and Jerusalem and attending the Passover of 31 C.E., Jesus returned to Galilee, and it seems likely that it was on a mountain in the neighborhood of Capernaum that he chose the 12 to be his apostles and delivered the renowned Sermon on the Mount. ( Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. ) Entering Capernaum, he was met by Jewish elders acting as intermediaries on behalf of an army officer who had demonstrated love for the Jewish nation, even building a synagogue in the city for them. This Gentile officer’s unquestioning faith in Jesus’ power to heal a sick slave even from a distance (as he had earlier healed the child of the king’s attendant) caused Jesus to marvel and resulted in Jesus’ prophecy that persons “from eastern parts and western parts” would recline at the table along with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the Kingdom of the heavens.— Hello guest!

Toward the close of his second preaching tour in Galilee and after activity in the country of the Gerasenes (or Gadarenes) SE of the Sea of Galilee, Jesus “crossed back again . . . to the opposite shore,” likely to the vicinity of Capernaum.

Again, though Jesus gave orders against telling others of this resurrection, “the talk about this spread out into all that region.” ( Hello guest!

Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. . At the close of his third Galilean preaching tour and shortly before the Passover of 32 C.E. ( Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. ), Jesus walked on the waters of the Sea of Galilee during a crossing to the shores of Gennesaret near Capernaum. After entering Capernaum, he was located by crowds who had followed him from across the sea. When Jesus gave a discourse designed to correct the basically materialistic interest in him that had been shown by the majority, many of his disciples defected from the ranks of his followers. This left a smaller number of faithful ones. ( Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. ) It was likely in Capernaum, after having attended the Passover of 32 C.E. in Jerusalem, that Jesus rebuked the Pharisaic traditionalists for criticizing Jesus’ disciples while at the same time making God’s Word void by their traditions.— Hello guest!

Finally, it was in Capernaum, sometime prior to the Festival of Booths in the year 32 C.E., when his major activity in Galilee and the northern part of the country was nearing its conclusion, that Jesus miraculously provided money for the temple tax and presented illustrations concerning greatness in the Kingdom of the heavens, strayed sheep, and the settling of difficulties.— Hello guest!

Capernaum was included by Jesus with the nearby cities of Chorazin and Bethsaida as one of the places in which most of his powerful works had been performed. ( Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. ) Capernaum had been exalted heaven high in a spiritual way by the presence, preaching, and miracles of Jesus, but it would now be abased, as it were, to Hades, here representing the depth of its abasement. Using hyperbole, Jesus said that even Sodom would not have perished if it had been as highly favored as was Capernaum. Today Capernaum, like Sodom, no longer exists as a city, its ruins at Tell Hum (Kefar Nahum) stretching out for about 1.5 km (1 mi) along the seacoast. Hello guest!

Enjoy the Visit!  Long but now you know it! 🧐 Photographed on assignment by @simonnorfolkstudio  The columns of a partially restored, second-to-fifth century synagogue in Capernaum lie atop an older structure very likely visited by Jesus, according to some scholars. Nearby, archaeologists discovered a dwelling that was venerated by early Christians – possibly the home of the Apostle Peter. Capernaum (Hebrew; : כְּפַר נַחוּם‎, Kfar Nahum; Arabic: كفر ناحوم, meaning "Nahum's village" in both languages) was a fishing village established during the time of the Hasmoneans, located on the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee. It had a population of about 1,500. The village was inhabited continuously from the 2nd century BC to the 11th century AD, when it was abandoned sometime before the Crusader conquest. This includes the re-establishment of the village during the Early Islamic period soon after the 749 earthquake.
    •  WHAT BLESSINGS DOES PATIENCE BRING? 🙏🏻⚖️🙏🏻 Whether we have served God for a few months or for several decades, we want to serve him forever. Patience helps us to endure until we gain salvation, no matter how much time remains in this system. Jehovah is now giving us the opportunity to prove our complete trust in his decisions and—if necessary—to be willing to suffer evil for the sake of his name. (1 Pet. 4:13, 14) God is also giving us training that can help us to have the patience needed for salvation.—1 Pet. 5:10. Something that interferes with our manifesting godly patience is a wait-and-see attitude. What does that mean? Well, a person who lacks confidence that the end is near might start to make alternate arrangements, so to speak, in case things do not work out as Jehovah said they would. In other words, he might be thinking, ‘I will wait and see if Jehovah really is true to his word.’ He might then try to make a name for himself in this world, to seek financial security instead of putting God’s Kingdom first, or to trust in higher education to secure a comfortable life now. Really, though, would that not be evidence of a lack of faith? Remember that Paul urged us to become imitators of those faithful ones who received promises from Jehovah “through faith and patience.” (Heb. 6:12) Jehovah will not allow this wicked system to exist any longer than is absolutely necessary according to his purpose. (Hab. 2:3) In the interim, we must avoid just going through the motions of serving Jehovah. Rather, we need to remain alert and work diligently at preaching the good news, which is a source of incomparable satisfaction even now.—Luke 21:36. Lesson for today. (1 Peter 5:10) Hello guest!

    • You are, then, embarrassed about the Bible's testimony, since as you very well know, the difference in date derives from the Bible dating Jerusalem's destruction to both the 18th and 19th years of Nebuchadnezzar's reign.  For readers that are unaware, cp. 2 Ki. 25:8-10 and Jer. 52:12-14 (a repeat of the 2 Kings passage) with Jer. 52:29.

    • Anne I agree with you. There is no evidence that Max Hatton had any influence on either Raymond Franz' research or that of Carl Jonsson for both carried out their own independent research. scholar JW
    • Foreigner Yes the distribution of those earlier treatises was restricted or limited to a few as this was pre-Internet. However, during those decades a Pastor Bruce Price again in Australia and a SDA waged a war if you like against WT Chronology and circulated the magazine Witness which was for SDA scholars, pastors and ministers again a limited distribution. Further, he published a fictional account centred in a rural setting which narrated the conversion of a Witness couple to Adventism through the prism of Chronology. scholar JW
