1 Corinthians 1 – Issue of Church Divisions

[AUDIO FILE] The third reason that Paul wrote this letter is addressed first. This reason is that the Congregation had splintered into factions based upon different teachers. But before Paul starts into his critique, he begins with a note of thanksgiving. [Read 1 Cor. 1:4-31][i] (Vs. 4-6) I think that Paul is wise even in […]

Introduction to the first Letter to Corinth

[AUDIO FILE] [Read 1 Cor. 1:1-3][i] This is the first letter that I have taught on in depth, and I think that a little discussion about how to interpret is due. In many ways, reading through the Epistles or letters included in the Bible is like listening to one side of a phone conversation. There […]

Parashat Nitzavim – When These Things Happen

This is a message of hope, teshuvah (repentance/returning) and restoration. [Read Deuteronomy 30] (Vs. 1-5) The passage starts with saying “when all these things come upon you.”[1] Here Adonai is under no illusion about our state as human beings. We are broken and fallen with a tendency to walk away from Adonai, but this passage […]

Parashat Ki Tavo – Obedience and Disobedience

In the letter to the congregation in Rome, Sha’ul says [Romans 6:19-23] that “sin’s payment [the wages of sin] is death, but God’s gracious gift is eternal life in Messiah Yeshua our Lord.”[1] When Adonai spoke to Adam and Eve He did not say that “When you eat of the fruit I’m going to kill […]

Parashat Ki Tetzei – Holiness of Marriage

There are many different topics covered by this week’s Parashat, but two themes come up again and again. These themes are the distinctions that Adonai has “in the natural world which are wrong for man to obliterate”[1] and sanctity or holiness of the marriage relationship. Concerning holiness, the Expositors Commentary says that if we think […]

Parashat Shoftim – Like Unto Moses

This week’s Parashat, Shoftim contains some very famous verses and incredible Messianic prophesies. We will also use this week’s Torah portion to springboard into Yeshua’s favourite sermon topic. [Deut. 16:18-22, 18:15-22] “Justice, justice you must pursue!”[1] Whenever a word or phrase is repeated in Hebrew, it is done deliberately and is highlighting something that is […]

Sharing in the Healing Ministry of Jesus – A Synthesis Paper

By Eleanor F. Miles Introduction On Facebook there was a recent quote saying, “You will never see healing evangelists working in hospitals for the same reason you will never see psychics winning the lottery, because they are a fraud.” It was a grievous statement, for though many psychics are frauds; there are legitimate healing evangelists and testimonies of people in […]

Parashat Re’eh – Beware of False Prophets

This week’s Parashat, Re’eh covers a variety of areas where we can honor Adonai. It starts out by telling Beni Yisrael to “See” that there is a decision set before them, a blessing and a curse. Adonai has given us all eyes to see, and a responsibility to choose either to trust His way and […]

What’s Wrong with Yeshua?

What’s Wrong with Yeshua?

What is the pronunciation of Jesus’ name in Hebrew? If people don’t pronounce the L_rd’s name correctly, are they really saved? These and other similar questions have led us to the discussion of the pronunciation of the name of Jesus, but have also opened up a much more critical issue. If this discussion is only […]

Parashat Matot – Wives Submit, Husbands Sacrifice

This week’s Parashat, a double portion of Matot-Masei, covers a variety of issues in conclusion of the book of Numbers. We see here Moses’ last battle against Midian/Moab, the settling of the 3 ½ tribes on the east of the Jordan (so much for the west bank), a summary of Beni-Israel’s entire wilderness journey, the […]
