Number 10 in the series Romans

Does God predestine some people for salvation and others for torment? Where does that leave free choice? In this teaching on Romans 8, we look beyond the weary argument about predestination and free will to try to understand the words of the Apostle Paul from within the context of the argument he is making. Take a closer look at the meaning of resurrection and the hope in which we were saved.

Number 42 in the series Holy Epistle to the Hebrews

Nobody likes to be disciplined, and nobody enjoys discipline, but the believer can have confidence that all of life's difficulties and hardships are meant for good from the hand of a loving father. This discussion on Hebrews 12:5-12 introduces the biblical concept of mussar, godly discipline for the sake of spiritual correction and character refinement.

Number 5 in the series Apocalypse of John

Who, or what, are the seven spirits of God? Who are the seven angels of the seven churches? The book of Revelation revolves around sevens: seven lamps, seven stars, seven spirits, seven churches, seven angels ... This teaching takes a plunge into first-century apostolic angelology to unravel the mystery of the seven spirits before the throne.

As for the mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand, and the seven golden lampstands, the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches. (Revelation 1:20)

Rabbi Jonathan Cahn's book the Mystery of the Shemitah has gripped the nation. Rabbi Cahn claims that God deals with the United States by imposing a pattern of judgment which recurs on a seven-year cycle corresponding to the Shemitah year. Is there a basis in Torah or biblical prophecy for the claims? This teaching also considers the blood moons, a sandstorm in the Middle East, and the recent tragedy in Mecca which took place on the anniversary of the World Trade Center disaster. Is God trying to tell us something?

Number 2 in the series Shabbat beShabbato

Did Noah keep the Sabbath? This simple question opens a discourse on the Sabbath in parashat Noach which explores the idea of Sabbatarianism before the flood and before Mount Sinai. The teachings covers a broad range of ideas related to the Sabbath including the concept of Shabbat Menuchah (Sabbath Rest), the Sabbath as a covenant sign, and discussion on the seven laws of Noah and the Sabbath day.

Number 2 in the series 26 Answers to 26 Reasons

Judaism teaches that a person should keep the commandments to inherit the world to come, but Christianity teaches that a person only needs to believe in Jesus. How do we reconcile these two very different salvation programs?

Number 1 in the series 26 Answers to 26 Reasons

Do you understand why most Jewish people do not believe that Jesus is the Messiah? Do you know why you do?

26 Answers to 26 Questions is a live recording of a mid-week class based on Asher Norman's popular anti-missionary book Twenty-Six Reasons Why Jews Don't Believe in Jesus.

In the course of these classes, we used Twenty-Six Reasons as a textbook to study our way through common questions raised by anti-missionary objections to Christianity and the New Testament. Our objective was not to train people to better proselytize Jews, but rather, we wanted to better understand our own convictions about Yeshua of Nazareth.

Since concluding the class, now more than five years ago, we have had frequent requests for copies of the audios. Over the next few months, we will be editing and posting the original audios from the class here at bethimmanuel.org.

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.

If the road to Gehenna is paved with good intentions, the road to Olam Haba is paved with good habits. 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. This teaching from Parashat Shoftim derives the obligation of daily Torah study from the laws of the king in Deuteronomy 17.

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).
