As disciples of Messiah Yeshua, we teach the Hebrew path that He walked and His message of the restoration of the Kingdom of God.
the Winter Festival
Did you know that Yeshua (Jesus) actually did observe a wintertime holiday? It was Hanukkah - the Feast of Dedication.
Now it was the Feast of Dedication in Jerusalem, and it was winter.
And Jesus walked in the temple, in Solomon's porch.
NKJ John 10:22-23
When Was Jesus Really Born?
When was Yeshuah (Jesus) really born? For generations Christians have believed He was born on December 25, but today many are beginning to question that long-held belief and are looking for the truth.
Thankfully, the truth is not hard to find. By connecting a few dots, specifically information given us about the priesthood of Israel and details provided by the gospel writers, we can come to a pretty good approximation, and guess what! It fits perfectly into God's overall plan of salvation!Learn More ...
Virgin Birth - Really?
Was Matthew wrong in his account of the birth of The Messiah when he stated (Matt. 1:22-23) that Yeshua's birth was the fulfillment of Isaiah 7:14? Many would like for you to believe that he was, because if they can discount that passage, they can discount the entire New Testament.
This study analyzes the meaning of the key Hebrew words used in Isaiah's prophecy as well as the context of the prophecy, including the person's involved and the events of the day.Learn More ...
Yeshua to Jesus
Why do our English bibles call our Savior by the name Jesus? Is that the name He was called by when He walked here on the earth? Does 'Jesus' really mean 'salvation'?
Students of the Bible have come to see that His Hebrew name would be "Yeshua" because 'Yeshua' is the term that means 'salvation'.
So why are we calling Him 'Jesus'? Is Jesus a paganized version of 'Yeshua'? Is it an attempt to honor the mythical god Zeus? Or is it simply a matter of transliteration?Learn More ...
Hanukkah & Non-Jews
Should non-Jews observe Hanukkah? Can believers in Messiah Yeshua find value in this traditional 'Jewish' festival? Absolutely! Hanukkah, much like our 4th of July, is a celbration of liberty and freedom - especially the freedom to worship God.
If it were not for the courage and fortitude of a family of Jewish priests and the patriots that followed them, the culture of the 1st century Judean people would have been changed forever, and without that culture, the Messiah and His disciples would not have been able to do their work.Learn More ...
Prince of Peace
'Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!' was the message the angel gave the the shepherds in the field as he sent them to find the newborn Christ.
One of the roles of the Messiah/Christ/King was to bring peace to a troubled people, but did not happen in their day.
Nevertheless, God does have a plan by which World Peace will become a reality, and that plan revolves around the Christ - the King of Israel, and it's available to all who wish to search it out.Learn More ...
Man's Festivals - or God's?
Both Hanukkah and Christmas are traditional festivals - nowhere mandated in the Bible. But God did mandate festivals that not only teach us about His plan of salvation for those who follow Him, but also help us to understand things in the future. Paul called them "shadows of things to come".
Those festivals - found in Leviticus 23 - are not 'Jewish' festivals, but are clearly defined as 'The Lord's (YHVH's) festivals', and were kept not only by Yeshua, but His disciples as well - long after His crucifixion.Learn More ...
Hebrew Roots is an 'awakening' . . . a realization that Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) meant what He said when He told his disciples that 'not one jot or tittle would pass from the law til all things are fulfilled'. Since most prophecy has yet to be fulfilled, those of us who live by His words believe we should fashion our lives after the Torah-observant example of Yeshua.
To put it in a nutshell - we believe we are saved by His grace, and that saved people will attempt to follow in the footsteps of their Saviour.Learn More ...
the Hebrew Walk
The Hebrew Walk can best be illustrated by a straight path that leads to the Mountain of God. Sin, on the other hand, is when you get off the path, which frequently leads you over a cliff and headed for destruction. The remedy for sin is 'repentance' which in Hebrew simply means to 'return' - as in 'return to the path'.Learn More ...
Faith is knowing that you don't walk the path alone - that God is with you, protecting and providing along the way.
Have you ever considered how you ulimately became aware of the Hebrew walk - the walk of Messiah Yeshua? How did this message finally cross your path and peak your interest?
No matter what your circumstance, one thing is for sure – you are here because you chose to follow the teachings of someone else. In fact, we have all chosen to follow the teachings and testimony of 15 Jewish men – the 12 disciples along with James, Luke, and Paul.Learn More ...
'Ami Yisrael' is Hebrew for 'my people Israel'. We take the words of God, Yeshua, Moses, the prophets, and Yeshua's disciples seriously. Thus when Paul said "... if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise" (Gal. 3:29) we believe that applies to us. We are not trying to be Jewish, for the Jews are just a small part of the Hebrew people. Instead, we hope to pattern our lives after that of the Hebrew of Hebrews - Messiah Yeshua.Learn More ...
