A Man Substituted for a Mortal

Posted by on Apr 27, 2021 in The Messiah

Apostle Mark opens his account of the public life of Yeshua, thus, “The beginning of the Good News of Yeshua Messiah, the son of Elohim.” Yeshua began his ministry with the immersion in the waters of the Yarden. But when was Yeshua reckoned as the son of Elohim? The traditional reading and interpretation of Chapter 3 in the Gospel of Luke holds the view that Yeshua was baptized in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar at the age of about thirty, as...

“Many False Prophets Shall Come in My Name”

Posted by on Jan 16, 2021 in Hebrew Study, The Messiah

The Messiah gave us a clear warning that many false prophets will come in His Name and deceive many. In Matthew Chapter 24 (aka the short Book of Revelation), when asked by His disciples, Yeshua warned them about the coming of many false prophets before His return,  Say to us, when shall this be, and what is the sign of your coming, and of the end of the age? (Mat 24:3) And the Messiah answering, said to them that the deception of false prophets will be the main sign of His...

Prophecy of Three Days and Three Nights: The Sign of Messiah

Posted by on Jul 5, 2020 in The Messiah

To understand Yeshua’s prophetic words concerning the Prophecy of Three Days and Three Nights, we need to go back to the source and see what He could have possibly meant when He made this statement before the Pharisees that He would be “buried for three days and three nights”. This study is a continuation of the study in the article The Sign of Jonah the Prophet. We will read from the Book of Yonah Chapter 2. Yonah the Prophet was sent by YHVH to witness...

The Fifth Gospel of YHVH

Posted by on Jun 26, 2020 in Bible Study, The Messiah

Which is the fifth Gospel, or the fifth Good News, because we know only four in the Scripture: the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John? The fifth Gospel subject of this teaching is not the so-called Q Gospel (also Q source and Q document). According to the Christian eschatology, Q Gospel is believed to be a part of the common source found in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke but not in the Gospel of Mark. But the fifth Gospel that we will study is a part of the Canon but...

The Pre-existing first-born Son of Elohim

Posted by on Jun 14, 2020 in Oneness of the Creator, The Messiah

The question “Does God have a pre-existing Son, first-born of the creation?” always opens the door of polemic between religions that will never be closed by men. The verses from JPS translation (Gen 6:2-4, Job 1:6, Job 2:1, and Job 38:7) showing that the Creator of the universe does have sons, namely, His messengers (angels), do not bring much argumentation. If the argument against them is that these verses are general references to angels, and no specific son...

“Why do you ask My name, it is hidden?”

Posted by on Jun 10, 2020 in The Messiah

In the Scripture, there is a messenger of YHVH whose name remained hidden in secret. He appeared only at key points in the world history and his hidden identity had never been revealed to men. Who is this messenger who said, “Why do you ask My name, it is hidden?” From the Canon and Apocrypha, we know the names of YHVH’s messengers such as Micha’el (Who is like El), Gavri’el (Might of El), Rapha’el (Healing of El), Phanu’el or...

The Messenger of His Face and How Torah was Given to Israel

Posted by on Dec 29, 2019 in Bible Study, The Messiah

The authorship of the Book of Genesis is attributed to Mosheh (Moses) who wrote it down for us. But let us ask the question, “How could he have known what had taken place from the Creation of the world to his birth?” The story of Adam and Eve, the Flood in Noach’s time and all detailed description of the building of the ark and the duration of the flood, the tower of Bavel would have been the unknown, unless someone had narrated the whole story. Not to mention,...

Virgin Birth of the Messiah the Mystery of Life

Posted by on Dec 1, 2019 in Oneness of the Creator, The Messiah

Virgin birth of the Messiah is a main stream theological doctrine, according to which the Messiah had no human father. Matthew clearly testifies that Yeshua the Messiah was born to a virgin, Miryam, and Yoseph adopted her son. However, Shaul says that the Son of Elohim had no father and mother, without genealogy, yet, we believe that the Messiah was born to a virgin mother. And if a birth is only possible at fertilization of a woman’s reproductive egg by a man’s...

As in the Days of Noach, so in the Days of Messiah

Posted by on Oct 7, 2019 in Prophecy Insight, The Messiah

“As in the days of Noach” is probably the most obscured sign of all signs of the coming of the Messiah in Matthew 24. We should recall that the Messiah has also given us two more signs of Him: the sign of Jonah the Prophet and “as in the days of Lot”. Why would Yeshua give Israel the only sign, the sign of Jonah, to prove that He was the Anointed One, the Messiah of Israel? And should we think that it was accidental for the Messiah to link both...

The Sermon on the Mount Few Want to Hear

Posted by on Sep 29, 2019 in Bible Study, The Messiah

Yeshua the Messiah made two addresses to the nation during His ministry. In his first address to the nation, “The Sermon on the Mount” [of Galilee], Yeshua the Messiah laid down the rules before the people for entering the Kingdom of Heaven. This sermon consists of three parts: chapters 5, 6, and 7 of the Gospel of Matthew. The first part of the Sermon on the Mount is seen by the majority of Christian commentators as an antithesis, Jesus made by the...

Until Shiloh Comes and to Him is Obedience

Posted by on Sep 13, 2019 in The Messiah

Shiloh is a mysterious figure in the Scripture. Little is known who he is, since he is mentioned only once in Gen 49:10, when the patriarch Ya’akov (Jacob) gave his prophetic visions of the twelves tribes. It is evident in the vision concerning Yehudah (Judah) that the coming of Shiloh is not to be regarded as terminating the rule of this tribe, but that the figure of Shiloh is carried out still further beyond the literal terms of the prophecy, as it tells...

The Revelation of the Messenger of YHVH

Posted by on Jul 21, 2019 in The Messiah

The Messenger of YHVH aka The Messenger of His Face is a mystery that cannot be comprehend completely. Who is this Messenger and what is His identity? The answers are found in the trial against Apostle Stephanos (Acts 7) where we also find the inconvenient truth for many, then and now. The exposure of this inconvenient truth in his fervent speech before the corrupted clique of Pharisees is the subject of this article. Apostle Stephanos was falsely accused by the Pharisees...
