The 613 Mitzvot: 66-70

main image

We are often asked to do teachings on the 613 commandments found in the Jewish faith.  Understandably, such a teaching or teaching series would be an immense undertaking.  However, we thought we may be able to go through it, at least in part, in our blogs.  This is an ongoing blog series that we will do at different times without any real schedule planned.  We will not be going into great depth in this series. The format for these blog posts will be simple.  We will...

Talking Torah Part 4: How Not to Bully Others With Your Words

main image

Remember the feeling when you walk into a store and you get bombarded with salespeople?  Remember how it feels to have someone working hard to show you all of the benefits of a product, and how it is so much better than what you have, yet they’re trying too hard and you really aren’t interested?  Most likely, you don’t like that feeling and you get put off by those people.  You don’t want to be that person, especially when it comes to discussing...

Talking Torah Part 3: How Not To Bully Others By Your Actions

main image

You know how your friends and family sometimes seem to get when you have tried to talk to them about the Torah?  Some may be receptive while others may refuse to talk about the subject or even become hostile, showing a side you would never have thought existed.  It doesn’t always have to be that way, if you’ve taken them into consideration and checked your attitude, then it may have something to do with actions. We do not recommend having deep discussions relating...

Is Grace New?

It has been said that there was no grace in the Old Testament and grace did not come until Yeshua in the New Testament.  Let’s test this belief using only the Torah.  Genesis Genesis 6:5-8 5 Then YHWH saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And YHWH was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His...

Tribes and Troubles Part 2

2 weeks ago we discussed the benefits of living in a tribe.  This week we go over the greatest danger of them.  One Very Real Danger Despite the great benefits derived from being part of a tribe, there can be some dangers, dangers that can tear what should be a unified people, apart.   The largest danger comes from ourselves and our approach to the differences we have with others.  Remember there are 3 things that come from 2 or more gathering together: View 1, View...

Tribes and Troubles Part 1

Being part of the Hebrew Roots movement, or at least people who have some familiarity with the story of the Bible, most of us have heard of tribes, especially the 12 tribes of Israel. What is a tribe? According to marketing guru Seth Godin in his book, “Tribes”, a tribe is: “A tribe is a group of people connected to one another, connected to a leader, and connected to an idea. … A group needs only two things to be a tribe: a shared interest and a way to...

Matthew 11:11 - How is the Least Greater than the Greatest?

August 14, 2014 A question common to Matthew 11 is that of what Yeshua meant in verse 11. Matthew 11:11 Verily I say to you, Among those born of women, there hath not arisen a greater than John the Baptizer: yet the small one in the kingdom of heaven, is greater than he.   On the surface it appears Yeshua is saying John the Baptist is next to nothing in the kingdom of heaven.  Yet this seems to contradict the context of previous passages where Yeshua is identifying John the...

The Creation Discrepancy

 August 07, 2014 As people attempt to discredit the Bible, many apparent discrepancies come to light and we need to examine them.  However, these discrepancies are not always found by those who don’t believe, but sometimes by those who are simply studying and trying to learn the best they are able to.  Not too long ago I was speaking with my Dad about the Word and he brought up something he was attempting to figure out relating to creation in Genesis 1 and 2. His...

Religious Freedom?

There is a recent article published by Christianity Today, written by Ed Stetzer, about the recent US Supreme Court ruling for the Hobby Lobby corporation and the mandatory coverage of all contraceptives.  A link to the article is at the end of this blog.  Regardless of one's personal beliefs relating to Obamacare and whether contraceptives should be covered by mandate, the article itself provides some interesting information regarding the freedom of religion and what that means...

Every Word

Every Word If one believes that the Law of God has been done away with, can they really believe the words of our Savior that says, Matthew 4:4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” Because if one part of God’s word nullifies another part of God’s word how can He say that we live on EVERY word that comes from the mouth of God? Just a thought...

Acts 10 with Mark 7

main image

Many people bring up Acts 10 and Mark 7 regarding the dietary laws of God to show they no longer apply.   Do Acts 10 and Mark 7 really tell us how the dietary laws set down in Leviticus have changed?.   Acts 10:1-22 is Peter’s vision where God tells Peter to kill and eat all manner of clean and unclean animals...This is often interpreted as meaning that God made all things food and clean to eat. However, this is not the case as Peter explained the vision a little...
