A Child was Born to Us Whose Name was “Sar Shalom”

Posted by on Apr 30, 2023 in The Messiah

It is unthinkable that because the Lord so much loves His people Israel that He should not give them a righteous king from the Davidic dynasty and deliver them from the cruel hands of their oppressors. Such a righteous king in the history of Israel was Chizkiyahu, the anointed one of YHVH, whom He called Sar Shalom, “Prince of Peace”. We will explore this controversial for some prophecy in the context of the story of the besiege of Jerusalem in the reign of King...

A Child is Born to Us Whose Name is “Mighty God”

Posted by on Apr 23, 2023 in The Messiah

Who was the child about whom it is said in Isaiah 9, “a child is born to us … and his name is the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace”? Thus read, it will be clear to the reader that the perception of a deity born as a child is explicitly expressed by the phrase, “the mighty God, the everlasting Father” referring to the child. Below is the digital copy of the Great Isaiah Scroll with the traditional translation. Although...

Almah Conceives and Gives Birth to a Son

Posted by on Jan 16, 2023 in The Messiah

There is a great deal of misunderstanding of two Hebrew words — almah and bethulah. Both words can overlap in their meaning, but they can also differ significantly. Most notably, this difference and misunderstanding are seen in the usage of the word almah in Isaiah 7:14, whose interpretation may lead to drawing a quick conclusion of either being a messianic prophecy or a fulfillment of a historic event, all depends on who reads and interprets the verse. In the following, we...

The Messiah as the Primordial Light of the Creator

Posted by on Nov 6, 2022 in The Messiah

The primordial light having existed from the beginning in the earliest state of the universe was created with the decree, “Light exist!”, and the light existed.  Maimonides, the greatest Jewish scholar of the Middle Ages, in his fundamental work Guide for the Perplexed, states that there is a difference between “first” and “beginning” (or principle). For example, heavens and earth were the first to be written in Genesis, after them came...

Can the Rabbis Err and Lead the People Astray?

Posted by on Aug 14, 2022 in The Messiah

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. Did the Rabbis err in the trial of Yeshua? Torah never recognizes any appeal to a higher court by the different parties to a lawsuit, that if the matter should be too difficult for the local judge to decide, they...

The Good Shepherd vs. the Hireling

Posted by on Jul 9, 2022 in The Messiah

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...

Why the Pharisaic Trial of Yeshua Was Illegitimate

Posted by on Apr 28, 2022 in The Messiah

Was the Pharisaic trial of Yeshua illegitimate? In this introduction to the subject, we would like to clarify presently the fateful trial that much has been written on, but still some legal issues have not been perceived. In order to clarify these legal issues in their entirety, we must initially make some inquiries in the Rabbis’ own words: the Mishnah, or the so-called “the Oral Law” (the Mishnah is the first part of the Talmud; a collection of early oral interpretations...

The Strange Way the Book of Leviticus Begins

Posted by on Mar 15, 2022 in The Messiah

The Book of Leviticus Vayikra begins with “And he called”, which has given the name of this book (Hebrew for “and he called”). This seems like an unusual way to begin a book with “And”. But, this is not the only book that begins in such a way. The books of Exodus, Numbers, Joshua, Judges, Samuel 1&2, Kings 1&2, Ruth, Esther, and Ezra too begin with the Hebrew letter vav, “and”. Who called to Mosheh in the very opening...

When Mosheh Declined the Messenger of YHVH

Posted by on Feb 22, 2022 in The Messiah

We should recall that there was a messenger that led the people out of Egypt and went before them in the pillar of cloud and fire, to guide and to defend them day and night (Exo 13:21) in the wilderness for forty years. But because it was YHVH who was guiding His people in the person of His Messenger, He demanded unconditional obedience to him. Beware of his presence and listen to his voice. Do not rebel against him, for he is not going to pardon your transgression, for My...

Anointed Metatron and Mediator

Posted by on Feb 1, 2022 in The Messiah

In rabbinic tradition, Metatron is the unique Messenger of the Presence of YHVH, who bears the Tetragrammaton and guided Israel through the wilderness to the Promised Land. This Messenger of the Face (literally, the Face) has been entrusted by the Creator to run the universe according to natural laws. In some rabbinic works, he is called also “Metatron Mashiach” or the Anointed Metatron. The messianic expectation is an integral part of Judaism, and the Messiah...

Errors in the Genealogy of Yeshua?

Posted by on Jul 26, 2021 in The Messiah

In this introduction to the errors in the genealogy of Yeshua, we would like to clarify certain issues that many have touched upon, much has been written on, but still its depths have not been perceived. In order to clarify these issues in their entirety, we must initially make some inquiries about the Greek of the canonical gospels. We will explain the reason for these inquiries in due course. How many of us are aware of serious errors in the genealogy of Yeshua in the...

Gap in the Fourteen Generations in Yeshua’s Genealogy

Posted by on Jul 20, 2021 in The Messiah

The reckoning of Yeshua’s ancestors with its three divisions of fourteen generations was perhaps so arranged by Matthew to evoke our reasoning. We should notice that for this purpose, the disciple traced the line from Avraham through David to Yeshua. This line is interrupted in two places: Avraham to King David, from King David to the exile to Babylon, and from the exile to Yeshua: three divisions of fourteen generations each. But if we count Yeshua’s ancestors...
