Peter, Do You Love Me?

Posted by on Apr 17, 2017 in The Messiah

The present author will ask the reader to read first the article What is Love? for a better understanding of what “love” is from Hebraic perspectives. If this is already done, we proceed in reading from John 21, where Yeshua asked Shimon Kefa (Simon Peter) three peculiar questions. That was now the third time Yeshua was manifested to His disciples after He was raised from the dead (Joh 21:14). We read, Shimon, son of Yonah, do you love (ἀγαπάω) Me more than...

Do Not Sell Wisdom, Instruction, and Understanding!

Posted by on Mar 4, 2017 in The Messiah

The words “Do not sell wisdom, instruction, and understanding” belong to the richest and wisest man ever born. Yet, he says when you obtain the truth (wisdom) from the Scripture, do not sell it for money. In this article we will study what his descendant Yeshua the Messiah says concerning this controversial topic of selling wisdom, instruction, and understanding. In Mat 10:8 he says: “Freely you have received, freely you give”. Obtain truth and do...

The True Story of the Prodigal Son

Posted by on Nov 27, 2016 in The Messiah

  The tax collectors and the sinners came to Yeshua to hear Him. The Pharisees and scribes also came and grumbled because of that. But He spoke a parable to them of a certain man who had two sons and the younger of them said to his father to give him his portion of the inheritance. Then the younger son went away to a distant country, and there wasted his moneys with loose living. But when he had spent all and a severe scarcity of food came throughout that land, he felt the...

Who is the Suffering Servant in Isaiah 53? Part I

Posted by on Nov 23, 2016 in The Messiah

There is no lack of commentaries as to who the suffering servant in Isaiah 53 is. Modern Judaism considers and teaches that this suffering servant is the nation of Israel. However, has this been the view of the sages throughout the centuries? As we will see in this study, the Sages of blessed memory had correctly commented on Isaiah 53 in their own writings in Talmud, which no Rabbi has the sufficient authority to change. Sadly, the Sages’ teaching was changed. On the...

The Human Messiah Part II

Posted by on Nov 14, 2016 in Oneness of the Creator, The Messiah

It is commonly understood among Bible scholars that Yonah (Jonah) was swallowed by the big fish and after being three days and three nights in its stomach was vomited out alive. The textual support of this story is that Yonah actually prayed to YHVH from the stomach of the fish as seen in Jon 2:2-9. But Yehovah appointed a great fish to swallow Yonah. And Yonah was in the stomach of the fish three days and three nights. (Jon 1:17) Below is the Hebrew text with a...

The Human Messiah Part I

Posted by on Oct 30, 2016 in Oneness of the Creator, The Messiah

The human Messiah, the son of man, was born with all human traits that every person had. Yet, He did not sin. His flawlessness did not come from being born without the ability to sin, but from being born as a normal human being with all possibility to sin. Only then His obedience and faithfulness can be measured up to the high standard of being the Messiah. The significance of the prophecy in 2Sa 7 concerning the Messiah becomes even more prominent when we understand that...

Posted by on Oct 17, 2016 in The Messiah

Rabbi Elijah of Vilna (also known as the Vilna Gaon) was a Jewish scholar in the 18th century well known for his writings about the coming of the Messiah and was the one who predicted the capture of Crimea by the Russians.

And when you hear that the Russians have reached...

What Time Is It Now On the Creator’s Clock?

Posted by on Sep 22, 2016 in The Messiah

Many today have misinterpreted Mat 24:36 to mean that we cannot know the day of the Messiah’s coming, and which is even worse, some teach, we are not to study the end-time prophecy. And those who study the end-time prophecies and try to try to figure out the day of His coming are labeled as “time setters.” This, however, is far from the truth. Learn the parable from the fig tree: When you see its branch and leaves sprouting know that he is near to the...

You Shall Call His Name Immanuel

Posted by on Aug 17, 2016 in The Messiah

Who is the son named “Immanuel” in the prophecy? In the scroll of Isaiah, the name “Immanuel” appears only twice: in Isa 7:14 and Isa 8:8. In the Apostolic Writings, it appears only once in the Gospel of Matthew referring to the Messiah but only as a reference to Isaiah. And if it was prophesied in Isaiah, why was another name given in Matthew: “Yeshua”? And which of them is his name? And once given in Matthew it has never been mentioned...

To Foresee Yeshua the Messiah

Posted by on Jul 12, 2016 in The Messiah

In His own words, Yeshua said that Avraham and Mosheh did foresee Him. Moreover, Yeshua said that Avraham rejoiced to see Him, and Mosheh wrote about Him. But when and how did they foresee Yeshua? Yeshua the Messiah said, Your father Avraham was glad that he should see my day, and he saw it and did rejoice. (Joh 8:56) For if you believed Mosheh, you would have believed Me, since he wrote about Me. (Joh 5:46) These are the words which I spoke to you, while I was yet with...
