Characteristics of a Disciple

Since we are disciples of Yeshua, our lives should be guided by the desire to imitate our Master’s character and live righteously as he did. Naturally, this should raise the question in all of us: Does my character live up to the high standard of what it means to be a disciple of our Master Yeshua?

To the World of Truth and Back Again

The phenomenon of near-death experiences is quite common. In addition to a few interesting samples from the Talmud, countless other testimonies have been recorded from religious Jews. Here, we present and compare some fascinating accounts from those who have passed from this world into the World of Truth and back again.

Ben HaMakom

Over the centuries a reconciliation between Jesus and his brethren has been occurring much like the reconciliation between Joseph and his brothers. We may not always understand it and it may even at times look rather bizarre to us, but it is happening and that’s what matters most.

Love God and Your Neighbor as Yourself

As a rabbi, Jesus interpreted the Scriptures in new and innovative ways. An impressive example of his ability to interpret the Scriptures like a Rabbi is found in his teaching on the greatest commandment.

Theology Oct 28, 2020

The Pedestrian God

Despite the rabbis’ general aversion to God taking on human form, several midrashic legends constitute a stream of incarnational thinking within the ocean of rabbinic theology. For example, in one midrash, God placed himself into the burning bush to literally feel his children’s pain in Egypt.

Torah Oct 12, 2020

The World to Come in Genesis

The Torah begins with a powerful revelation and deep implications about our existence: God created the universe. This means that there is purpose and meaning to life and creation. The rabbis pondered if there were any deeper implications to this revelation.

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz Tz”l

R' Steinsaltz’s desire to bring the Torah’s wisdom as represented in classic Jewish works such as the Midrash and Talmud to Jews who had assimilated into the wider secular culture around them was, much like our Master’s desire, a mission to bring the lost sheep of the house of Israel back into relationship with God.

Keep the Torah for God’s Sake

The person who engages the Torah for its own sake brings praise not to himself but for God. He brings healing to those around him by showing them that God’s ways are better and more life-giving than anything this world could offer.

Sukkot Oct 17, 2019

The Temporal and the Eternal

The themes of life and our interaction with material pleasure presented by Kohelet seem out of place for the joyous holiday of Sukkot. The opening segment of the book leads us to the conclusion that life is entirely pointless. How can we reconcile that with the commandment to celebrate with joy and gladness?

The Compassionate Father

We are currently in a season of repentance. We, the collective whole of God’s people both Jew and Gentile, young and old, rich and poor, free and enslaved, are praying prayers of repentance from the Siddur that reflect our humble posture as we approach our just King during this time of corporate repentance.

The Restoration of Zion

In a mere 148 years, the land of Israel has transformed from desolation into a living oasis. How did this change occur? What about the land gave it this amazing ability to change in such a miraculous manner? The settlers of Zion had a largely positive impact on Israel. They turned the desert green.

Carry My Cross

The governments and religious groups that persecuted Christianity throughout the centuries did so under the satanic mission to make the name of Jesus void on the earth. Christians who suffered persecution under the hand of the evil one went to their deaths with the praise of God on their lips.

Language Learning Adventure

Just a few months ago, after learning Greek from a fantastic resource, I decided that I needed to learn Babylonian Aramaic. I found what I thought would be a fabulous book to help me do just that: Introduction to the Grammar of Jewish Babylonian Aramaic. Unfortunately, I was sorely disappointed. But I did learn something!

Five Ways to Guarantee that Yeshua Will Never Come Back

What is it about the end times that piques our curiosity so much? Why do we have such an infatuation with figuring out the exact date of the apocalypse? Perhaps it’s a subconscious knowledge that this present reality needs to be destroyed in order to give way to a better more complete reality.

The Tzaddik at the Center

Just as the student’s love and trust of a Tzaddik is an expression of his love and devotion to God, likewise our relationship with Yeshua is a reflection of our relationship with God. Levertoff tells us elegantly that our love for God is rooted in our love for the Messiah.

The New Torah of the Messianic Era

One of the most curious changes that will take place in the Messianic Era is the emergence of a New Torah. The rabbis teach that in the Messianic Era a New Torah will come from God and that our current Torah will be nothing compared to the New Torah of Messiah.
