Imitate Me

Paul says later in 11:1, “Be imitators of me, just as I also am of Messiah.” Too many times we try telling others how to live. It is always much better to show them. This is the essence of discipleship that Yeshua demonstrated. Whenever Yeshua found someone, what did he call them to do? … […]

1 Corinthians 3 – What Am I?

How many of you have felt the frustration at your work, where you are asked to something that is not within your responsibility? Or has your success and failure depended upon the results or inputs of others, but you don’t have the authority to direct these people? Or have you experienced the anger of others, […]

1 Corinthians 2 – Wisdom of God

For the next couple of chapters, we are discussing the third reason that Paul wrote this letter. This reason is that the Congregation had splintered into factions based upon different teachers. In this chapter we see Paul describing the style of teaching and preaching that he used. In the following two chapters we see that […]

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 […]
