Number 24 in the series Holy Epistle to the Hebrews

The Evangelical gospel asks, "Are you certain you are going to go to heaven when you die?" The Christian objective seems to be to secure a place in heaven, but the Bible says very little about heaven. Find out why most passages about heaven are actually not about heaven at all in this installment on the basic teachings of the Messiah from Hebrews 6.

Number 45 in the series Holy Epistle to the Hebrews

Our religion involves a lot of ritual foods, including the ceremony that the Church refers to as the Eucharist, but the writer of the book of Hebrews warns his readers to steer away from sacramental interpretations of ceremonial foods. This discussion of Hebrews 13:9-14 brings the central conflict behind the epistle into sharp focus.

Number 17 in the series Apocalypse of John

The plagues on Egypt foreshadow a future coming time of tribulation when God will judge the whole earth, as he once judged Egypt. This time, judgment comes on all the nations, as God redeems his people from the nations. Just as the redemption from Egypt began with plagues, judgments, signs and wonders on the earth, likewise, the final redemption will be prefaced by the same types of omens, calamities, and judgments, which Christians refer to as “the tribulation” and Jews refer to as the “Birth Pains of Messiah,” leading up to the conflict of Armageddon, the great war of Gog and Magog.

At Beth Immanuel, we are bringing daily prayer and study, daily acts of charity, and regular attendance at the house of study into the daily routine.

Number 34 in the series Holy Epistle to the Hebrews

Bible teachers often use Hebrews 9 as proof that the disciples of Yeshua abandoned the Old Testament rituals of Temple worship and sacrifices as vestiges of an old covenant that had been replaced by a new covenant. A closer look reveals an entirely different message. Hebrews 9 uses the layout of the Temple to present  a mystical illustration of the passage from this world to the World to Come.

Number 1 in the series Purim Audio

A secret code hidden away in the scroll of Esther reveals a link between Haman's ten sons and the Nuremburg trials of 1946. The story of Purim tells the story of anti-Semitism and alludes to the spiritual forces of darkness at war with the people of God.

Number 5 in the series Holy Epistle to the Hebrews

What role in the creation of all things did the Son play? From where did the apostles derive their high view of Messiah in His divinity? This teaching explores early apsotolic mysticism. Take a quick immersion into the Christology of the apostles and the writer of the book of Hebrews based on the prologue to the book of Hebrews.

...His Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature (Hebrews 1:2-3).

Number 2 in the series Romans

Have you ever heard of "The Romans Road"? This lesson takes a few detours off the regular route. The second class in our study of Paul's Epistle to the Romans explains the concepts of faith and grace before launching into Paul's rhetorical diatribe against the godless Roman idolators--a rant which turns out to be a set up to turn the tables on his readers. This teaching also contains discussion on the Noachide laws and proselytes to set the stage for the ensuing discussions in the book of Romans.

Number 18 in the series Holy Epistle to the Hebrews

Are "dead works" the "works of the Law"? Does the book of Hebrews tell us to repent from Torah observance when it speaks of "repentance from dead works."

What are the basic teachings of Messiah mentioned in Hebrews 6:1-3? Discover the meaning of repentance from dead works in this eighteenth installment of sermons on the epistle to the Hebrews.

Therefore let us leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, and of instruction about washings, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. And this we will do if God permits. (Hebrews 6:1-3)

Number 19 in the series Holy Epistle to the Hebrews

Does repentance mean to change your mind or to turn from sin? 

More thoughts on repentance from dead works as an essential part of the gospel and one of the elementary teachings of Yeshua. Evangelism is not like making toast. Discipleship and evangelism entail an ongoing process. This teaching includes excerpts from a blog in which an Evangelical pastor explains why he does not preach repentance.

Number 41 in the series Apocalypse of John

Follow the river that flows from one end of the Bible to the other, from the Garden of Eden to the World to Come. This final teaching from the book of Revelation brings us back to the island of Patmos at the end of the book and the end of the Apocalypse of John series.

Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear, and who keep what is written in it, for the time is near. Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book." (Revelation 1:3,  22:7)

On the eve of Rosh HaShanah, all creation trembles in anticipation of the sound of the trumpet of Messiah. Get in the holiday spirit with a teaching from Erev Rosh HaShanah 5775 (2014) based on the words, “When the Lamb opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour” (Revelation 8:1).

Recorded 09/27/2008

"Rosh Hashanah Menu" is a lighthearted discussion of the tradition of eating symbolic foods on Erev Rosh Hashanah, recorded in 2008.

Number 46 in the series Holy Epistle to the Hebrews

How can we worship God without the sacrifices? The epistle of the Hebrews points us to the text of Hosea 14:2 to answer this question, employing the same proof text and arriving at nearly the same conclusion that the sages of Yavneh offered after the destruction of the Temple. That prescient message anticipated the coming exile and offered Israel a survival guide for the long years ahead without sacrifice, without priest, and without temple.

Number 9 in the series Apocalypse of John

The city of Pergamum was one of the most famous places in the Roman world. In addition to a spas, hospitals, and a healing center there, the city boasted an enormous altar to the god Zeus. The story of Satan's throne in Pergamum and the martyr Antipas has a frightening corrolary in the modern world. Listen to a teaching on Revelation 2:13 to discover the meaning behind these cryptic references:

I know where you dwell, where Satan's throne is; and you hold fast My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days of Antipas, My witness, My faithful one, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells. (Revelation 2:13)

Number 24 in the series Apocalypse of John

John sees an angel straddling land and sea with the small scroll open in his hand. He hears the voices of seven thunders speak to him from heaven. He eats a scroll that tastes like honey but turns his stomach sour. In this teaching, we unravel these riddles and more as we prepare for the seventh angel to sound the seventh trumpet.

Number 3 in the series Death of the Messiah

The story of the Last Supper compared with the traditional elements of the Seder meal as reported in the Mishnah help us recreate the story of Yeshua's last meal with his disciples before he suffered. Listen to this teaching to help prepare to keep the Seder in memory of the Master as he instructed us.
