Number 13 in the series Holy Epistle to the Hebrews

Psalm 110 is the most frequently quoted text in the New Testament. Why? And what did Yeshua mean when he quoted it to challenge the concept of a Davidic Messiah?

David himself, in the Holy Spirit, declared, 'The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at my right hand, until I put your enemies under your feet.' David himself calls him Lord. So how is he his son? (Mar 12:36-37)

Listen to a study of Hebrews 4:14-5:6 which unwraps Psalm 110 and introduces the priesthood of Messiah. The Messiah Psalm offers discussion about the Messianic interpretation of Psalm 110 as it appears in the teaching of Yeshua (Mark 12) and the Epistle of Hebrews.

Number 8 in the series Holy Epistle to the Hebrews

The kingdom of heaven prior to the final redemption can be likened to a partisan movement, such as Robin Hood and his men or the European freedom fighters that fought in Nazi occupied territory. The Partisans is a teaching on Hebrews 2 in light of Psalm 8 and the parable of the ten minas in Luke 19 concerning all things in subjection to the Son and the revelation of the kingdom.

We have this common goal, this common purpose. We have received the dispatch. The king is on the throne, and he is on the way here. If we will be loyal to him now, we are part of his kingdom. But he has not yet arrived. There is another king on the throne, who holds the power of death, and we are the resistance movement, loyal to the incoming king because we know that, even though this enemy and pretender, this contender for the throne still holds power, his rule is over, he has lost his authority, and his time is quickly coming to an end.

Number 14 in the series Romans

Has God rejected his people? Did Israel stumble and fall?

This Bible study fills in the missing pieces in Paul's arguments to make sense out of these difficult passages:

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, "Your God reigns." (Isaiah 52:7)

Number 27 in the series Apocalypse of John

The seventh trumpet blows, signaling the big event when the day of wrath collides with the rage of nations. The temple on earth opens and the ark of the covenant is revealed. The kingdom of this world becomes the kingdom of Hashem and his Messiah. In this study of Revelation 11:14-19, the seventh trumpet blast initiates a process whereby the kingdom will be established.

And it came to pass, when the ark set forward, that Moses said, Rise up, LORD, and let thine enemies be scattered; and let them that hate thee flee before thee. (Numbers 10:35)

Number 9 in the series Romans

What is the significance of the resurrection of Yeshua? In Romans 8, Paul enters into the deep mysticism of resurrection theology. The resurrection of Yeshua is prelude to the restoration of heaven and earth which will transform this present world into the world to come. Those in Messiah are swept up in that future transformation through His Spirit even now, and by that transformation, we have a hope for the future to come and victory in Messiah today.

Number 12 in the series Romans

What about the Jewish people who rejected the Messiah? Did God "harden" their hearts? Why did they stumble over Yeshua, and what were the implications? Did the Messianic promises fail? Romans 9 is a pivotal passage for understanding Paul's theology regarding Messiah and Israel. This teaching takes the most difficult chapter of the Epistle to the Romans head on from a Messianic Jewish perspective.  

So then he has mercy on whomever he wils, and he hardens whomever he wills. (Romans 9:18)

Recorded 09/29/2011

The Torah speaks of two types of thieves. One who comes by day and one who comes by night. Yeshua referred to himself as one coming like "a thief in the night." In this Rosh HaShanah teaching, we meditate on the meaning of that title as we prepare for the high holidays.

Number 26 in the series Apocalypse of John

Who are the two witnesses of Revelation 11? What is their function in the end times? This intriguing teaching brings material from ancient Jewish apocalypses to uncover the identity of the two witnesses and their mission. 

Recorded 12/12/2015

The release of two stunning new statements, one by the Vatican and one by The Center for Jewish-Christian Understanding & Dialogue (CJCUC) constitutes a Chanukah miracle and a “cease fire” of theological hostility which has characterized the relationship between the Church and the Jewish people for most of the last two thousand years. Listen to excerpts from the Vatican’s Commission for Religious Relations with Jews’ new paper titled “The Gifts and Calling of God are Irrevocable” and the response from the CJCUC paper “To Do the Will of Our Father in Heaven: Toward a Partnership between Jews and Christians.”

For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. (Romans 11:29)

Number 36 in the series Apocalypse of John

Who is Mystery Babylon, the mysterious woman riding a seven headed steed in Revelation 17? Is it America? Iran? Syria? In this teaching, we will answer the question according to the way the symbolism would have been understood by a first century Messianiac believer living in Asia Minor.

Number 12 in the series Apocalypse of John

What does it mean that Yeshua comes as a “thief in the night”? The assembly of disciples in Sardis had a false reputation for being alive. The angel of Yeshua warned them to wake up or face the unwelcome and unanticipated visit of the thief in the night. This teaching explores Revelation 3:1-6 with emphasis on piety and connection to God in the practice of our faith.

Recorded 05/04/2013
Number 16 in the series Holy Epistle to the Hebrews

Do we have eternal security or eternal insecurity? Do apostates lose their eligibility for the world to come? A few verses in Hebrews 6 have been a theological battleground for these questions since the earliest days of Christianity.

The things that belong to salvation include the gift of the Spirit, the goodness of the word of God, and the power of the age to come. This sermon deals with the difficult and controversial material in Hebrews 6:4-12.

For in the case of those who have once been enlightened and have tasted of the heavenly gift and have been made partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, and then have fallen away, it is impossible to renew them again to repentance, since they again crucify to themselves the Son of God and put Him to open shame. (Hebrews 6:4-6)

One for the black bird, one for the crow, one for the cutworm, and one to grow.
