The Trinity Pt 3

In the last couple of programs we’ve been discussing the Trinity. This is a complex doctrine, it’s not easy to understand and for the Jewish mind it’s incomprehensible. But there are many references in the Old Covenant portion of the Bible that identify the personages that make up the Godhead; The Father, The Son and …Read More

The Trinity Pt 2

We began to look at the subject of the Trinity last time, it’s not a small or even easy subject to get our head around. To the Jewish mind it’s idolatrous because it appears to be the worship of three gods. The idea that God would have a Son is also hard to comprehend in …Read More

The Trinity Pt 1

Probably more than any other doctrine in the Christian faith, the doctrine of the Trinity is the most difficult one for Jewish people to deal with. Trying to get their head around God having a Son who came to earth in human form is just too great a stretch to believe. They’re not alone either, …Read More

Simchat Torah

I read a really easy to understand history of Simchat Torah from an article written by Rabbi Shlomo Brody which I’ll provide the link for at the end of the notes if you’re interested in reading it. Simchat Torah means ‘rejoicing in the Torah.’ The Torah scrolls are treated with incredible reverence and are protected …Read More

Hineni: Here I Am, Send Me!

There is a powerful word in Hebrew that sums up three words in English. The word is hineni (הנני), which means “Here I am!” But you’ve got to watch out how you say it, because it’s a way of expressing total readiness to give oneself. We mentioned it in our last program when we learned about how …Read More

Messiah: Suffering Servant Or Victorious King? Pt 2

In our last program we began a discussion about how the Jewish view of Messiah is split into two categories, Mashiach ben Yosef – Messiah son of Joseph and Mashiach ben Da’vid – Messiah son of David. The common understanding among many religious Jews is that depending on how the Jewish people are conducting themselves …Read More

Messiah: Suffering Servant Or Victorious King? Pt 1

We mentioned in a previous program while discussing the identity of the person mentioned in Isaiah 53 that rabbis and religious Jewish leaders for most of the past 2000 years have denied that the identity is that of the Messiah, and that rather it’s talking about the Jewish people as an ethnic collective. We know …Read More

Overview of the Feasts of the Lord

Over the course of the year, there are seven mandatory feasts of the Lord, there are more remembrances, feasts, festivals and anniversaries in the Hebrew calendar, but there are seven specific feasts of the Lord that God Himself commanded His people remember and celebrate every year at specific times. We’ve looked at all seven so …Read More

Sukkot Pt 2 Feast of Tabernacles

We began learning about Sukkot last time on Foundations. Sukkot is the last or final feasts that the Lord deemed to be mandatory, annual celebrations. It’s also known as the Feast of Tabernacles or Feast of Booths. It’s also an agricultural celebration, a time of thanksgiving to God for His constant provision and care for …Read More

Sukkot Pt 1 Feast of Tabernacles

There are quite a lot of celebrations and anniversaries and feasts in the Jewish calendar but Sukkot (Su-coat) is the last of the mandatory feasts of the Lord commanded by God in the Bible; it’s the last of the Autumn feasts in the Jewish calendar and it’s also known as the Feast of Tabernacles or …Read More
