The Rediscovered Teachings of the Twelve Jewish Apostles to the Gentiles.
Didache: A New Translation and Messianic Jewish Commentary.

While there have been a plethora of commentaries on the Didache from Christian and even Jewish points of view, this is the first major work from a Messianic Jewish perspective. The Way of Life will benefit both Messianic Jews and Gentiles who desire to study the priorities and life of the earliest believers in Yeshua.

Why do we "lay hands" on the sick? What does the ceremony of laying on of hands actually mean?

The writer of the book of Hebrews lists the laying on of hands as one of the elementary teachings of the Messiah. What is the laying on of hands and what did it signify to the early believers? Listen to a rapidly moving Bible study on the subject of semichah in the apostolic era.

The elementary principles include the subject of baptism and instructions regarding immersions. In this teaching, we look at the evidence from early Christian documents. Find out how the second-century Christians welcomed new converts into the body of Messiah. This teaching contains quotations from Justin Martyr's First Apology, from the Didache, and from the Apostolic Constitutions. The quotations are available in the PDF document below titled Initiation Texts.

The Torah portion called Ki Tetze begins with the words, "When you go out to battle against your enemies." In this Sabbath teaching, Pastor Lancaster homiletically applies these words to the obligation to battle against the evil inclination, particularly in the area of sexual purity. The discussion turns to consider our strategy in the battle against the broader culture's new sexual standards and how we as disciples of Yeshua of Nazareth should respond.
