Does Torah Mandate a Raped Girl to Marry Her Rapist?

The emotional and physical pain and fear the girl has suffered at the time of the rape have long term metal effects that may last for life.

The emotional and physical pain and fear the girl has suffered at the time of the rape have long term metal effects that may last for life.

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 25 September 2022: Is it true that the Torah requires a victim of rape to marry her rapist, and the only punishment to the rapist is a monetary fine? In our modern society, the mere suggestion that a raped girl marry her rapist is inconceivable and repulsive to say at least. The emotional and physical pain and fear the girl has suffered at the time of the rape, however, have long term metal effects that may last for life. Read more


Plucking the Grains and the Laws of Men

Plucking the grains and the laws of men one at a time.

Plucking the grains and the laws of men one at a time.

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 18 September 2022: Does the Torah allow trespassing of private property and taking advantage of the produce of the land? But it appears that Yeshua and his disciples entered unlawfully on someone’s property and ate some of his produced. The Torah however offers no possibility that any person could enter someone’s field at any time for any reason and eat the produce of the land. Such a trespassing would fundamentally interfere with a person’s right to hold private property. That would be an act of taking something from someone unlawfully. Read more


The Status of Woman in the Law of Divorce

The Torah gives answers to all questions sought earnestly. It points to them for those who desire to learn on a deeper level of understanding.

The Torah gives answers to all questions sought earnestly. It points to them for those who desire to learn on a deeper level of understanding.

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 11 September 2022: It seems that in the law of divorce in Deuteronomy, the woman is depicted as completely passive in the divorce. If the husband finds no favor in his eyes on the account of uncleanness, he writes her a letter of divorce and sends her away so that she can remarry another man. The law of divorce thus applies solely on the husband, who is forbidden to take his ex-wife back. But what if the wife finds no favor in her eyes because she has found a matter of uncleanness in him. Can she write a letter of divorce and send him away, and what rule of law can be applied in the reversed case? The Torah seems silent. But why? Read more


The Hidden Message on the Cross the Pharisees Saw

The hidden message on the cross the Pharisees saw in Hebrew.

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 4 September 2022: Did the corrupted religious elite see some hidden message on the cross that made them nervous, when they said to Pilate, “Do not write, ‘The King of the Jews’, but he said, ‘I am the King of the Jews'”? It all began with the four verses in the Gospel according to Yochanan, to which we now turn. Read more


Methods of Textual Analysis

Hebrew Scroll

Hebrew Scroll

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 28 August 2022: Some make the curious argument that the difficulty of offering any rational reason or explanation for the minute details of an analyzed text “proves” that the text must be a metaphor about something else and thus requires a metaphorical explanation. This kind of logic is somewhat akin to how some scholars “study” the Scripture. They say that since the literal reading is unsatisfying, another level of interpretation is required. And they while departing from the plain reading of the text start seeking the answers on a “deeper” level, which very often leads to misinterpretation of the text in question, because the simple meaning has been lost.

The Second Resurrection and the Second Death

The resurrection is not all about going to heaven, as the religion teaches, but about a new life here on the earth. Torah is not occupied with heaven but with giving direction as to how to conduct our lives on the earth.

The resurrection is not all about going to heaven, as the religion teaches, but about a new life here on the earth. Torah is not occupied with heaven but with giving direction as to how to conduct our lives on the earth.

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 21 August 2022: The scriptures speak of “first resurrection” and “second death”, but not of “first death” and “second resurrection”. While the first death is most naturally understood to be the death in this world, yet they also speak of two resurrections that are separated by a thousand years. And what exactly are the second death and the second resurrection? Read more


Can the Rabbis Err and Lead the People Astray?

Agnus Dei (the lamb of God), Francisco de Zurbarán, 1640

“He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, but he did not open his mouth”. Agnus Dei (the lamb of God), Francisco de Zurbarán, 1640

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 14 August 2022: It may come as a surprise to many that the Torah recognizes the possibility of a situation in which the Rabbis can err and thus lead many to sin. We will address this question in the following vein and leave the conclusion to the reader’s consideration. Read more


Orpah and Ruth: The Stories of Two Gentiles

Naomi Entreating Ruth and Orpah to Return to the Land of Moab, William Blake, 1795.

Naomi Entreating Ruth and Orpah to Return to the Land of Moab, William Blake, 1795.

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 7 August 2022: We will explore in the following vein the story of Orpah and Ruth, the daughters-in-law of Naomi, a story that poses a challenge for the careful reader. The matter will become clear once we understand why Orpah is included in the story in which Ruth is the main character. This will give us a better understanding of the Book of Ruth, the stories of two gentiles: Orpah and Ruth. This work has also a second object, which we will leave for the reader’s consideration at the end of our study. Read more


The Hebrew versus the English Concept of Murder

The Covenant

The Covenant of YHVH

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 31 July 2022: In English, a very clear distinction exists between murder and manslaughter. The legal term “murder” is defined as an unlawful premeditated killing of a human being by a human being, wherein “killing” is the act of terminating a human life. The English translations of the Tanak render the Sixth Commandment of the Covenant by using the English words “murder” or “kill”: “Thou shalt not murder” (JPS), and “Thou shalt not kill” (KJV). These English words are mistakenly taken to have two different meaning, i.e., to murder is considered to take life intentionally, while to kill is to cause to die unintentionally.

Bil’am: The Diviner and Wild Dog of the Nations

Balaam and his Ass, Pieter Lastman, 1622, Israel Museum, Jerusalem

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 17 July 2022: Bil’am the diviner is considered the prophet of the nations and the celebrated soothsayer of Mesopotamia. He had the reputation of being able both to bless and curse with great success for his employers and for his personal gain. Some have regarded Bil’am as a diviner, who was compelled by Elohim against his will to give utterance of blessings upon Israel instead of curses. Others have supposed him to be a true prophet, on account of the blessing he bestowed upon Israel, but who simply fell through covetousness and ambition. Indeed, Bil’am even though was a diviner was not without a certain measure of the true knowledge of Elohim; he even confessed YHVH to be his own Elohim. But was He? Read more


The Good Shepherd vs the Hireling

A good shepherd cares much for his sheep. If a sheep goes astray, it endangers itself and the flock. To save the sheep the shepherd has to snap its leg and fasten it with a band. Since the sheep cannot walk, the good shepherd has to carry it on his shoulders until the leg heals.

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 9 July 2022: The term “hireling”, as used by the Good Shepherd in the Gospel of John, suggests “one who speaks the Word of Elohim for pay”, or the so-called “professional priesthood” of today, as they call themselves. These hirelings (bishops, pastors, reverends, and TV evangelists) teach that they are entitled to receive the money of the laymen, but are they? The apostles taught and practiced exactly what the Good Shepherd, Yeshua the Messiah, had taught them about the hireling, namely, that no monetary gain was to be asked for teaching the Gospel.

Why Mosheh Did Not Enter the Promised Land

Poussin, Nicolas – Moses Striking Water from the Rock – 1649

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 2 July 2022: Mosheh the greatest statesman Israel ever had was not allowed to enter the Promised Land. The reason was that Mosheh did not speak to the rock, as YHVH told him, but he struck it with his rod. Why was that a sin to Mosheh that it merited such a punishment? Let us suspend this question for a moment and raise another challenge: we find two quite different stories concerning the attempt of Israel to enter the Land of Promise: one in Numbers and another one in Deuteronomy. They differ in their accounts as to who had sent the twelve “spies” to scout the land of Kana’an. Read more


The Ancient of Days and His Manifested Presence

Ancient of Days high above the throne of sapphire (Ezekiel)

The Ancient of Days high above the throne of sapphire in Daniel and Ezekiel’s visions.

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 23 June 2022: The prophets Isaiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel saw someone seated on a heavenly throne in their visions. While Isaiah gives no description of the Eternal, and Ezekiel and Daniel describe Him having corporeal features, it is Daniel who identifies Him by calling Him the Ancient of Days. And it is Daniel who was given to see another one in a vision whom he called the Son of Man. Whom or what did the prophets see? Read more


When the Pharisees Sat on the Seat of Mosheh

The Seat of Mosheh the Pharisees sat upon was an actual seat of authority.

The Seat of Mosheh the Pharisees sat upon was an actual seat of authority.

Time of Reckoning Ministry (TORM) 12 June 2022: There was a time in the first century Judea, when the Pharisees usurped upon the domain of the Levites and the judges, and a new term was largely used to denote the authority the Pharisees usurped: “the Seat of Mosheh”, as it appears in the opening of Chapter 23 of Matthew. But what does “the Seat of Mosheh” mean because the text goes on to include even the command to do whatever the Pharisees say? One cannot argue that if the Messiah has told us to observe and do whatever the Pharisees demand from us, we must do. And let this not be a cause of wonder to us, for it is indeed written, “whatever they say to you to observe, observe and do”. But let us suspend this question for a moment and raise another problem: why did the Messiah so severely condemn the Pharisees for sitting on the Seat of Mosheh, i.e., sitting on his authority, since he has told us to obey them?
