Yam Suph — Red Sea or Sea of Reeds

Posted by on Aug 21, 2020 in Bible Study, Hebrew Study

The Hebrew words Yam Suph are always translated either “Red Sea” or “Sea of Reeds” referring to the sea the Elohim of the children of Israel split at the Exodus from Egypt. The meaning of Yam Suph has been lost for us and “Red Sea” and “Sea of Reeds” may not be quite correct, as we will examine this below. But why is it important to find the correct translation of Yam Suph where Elohim performed His last plague on Egypt and...

The Lesson of the Prophet for Profit

Posted by on Jul 4, 2020 in Bible Study

The term “prophet for profit” suggests “one who speaks the Word of Elohim for pay”, or the so-called “professional priesthood” of today, as they call themselves.

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...

Why did the sons of Mosheh not merit any leadership?

Posted by on May 25, 2020 in Bible Study

Why did the sons of Mosheh, Gereshom and Eli’ezer, not merit to be in the leadership of Israel? Should they not have been worthy of high positions in the clergy, or entitled to a high rank in the leadership in Israel? And why did Mosheh not say a word in their behalf at the end of his life, because he chose none of them to be his successor, but YHVH chose Mosheh’s right hand: Yehoshua. But why? After all, were Gereshom and Eli’ezer not the sons of none...

Did Matthew mistake to quote Jeremiah?

Posted by on May 21, 2020 in Bible Study, Q&A

In the Gospel, it appears that Matthew made a mistake by quoting Jeremiah in his account of the betrayal of Yeshua. But can he make such a mistake in the first place? All the chief priests and rulers took counsel against Yeshua to put Him to death. And having bound Him, they delivered Him to Pontius Pilate. Then Judas having seen that He had been condemned to death, repented, and returned the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests. And throwing down the pieces of...

The Dark Side of Noach’s Curse

Posted by on May 10, 2020 in Bible Study

There is something curious in the Noach story. The apostle called Noach “a preacher of righteousness” (2Pe 2:5), but the only time he opened his mouth was to curse his grandson Kanaan. Why? Noach and his family left the ark to see a world devoid of living souls; they were the mankind on the face of the earth. The first thing Noach did was to plant a vineyard and grow the fruits of the vine. Then, he got drunk, because the righteous Noach struggled with his...

The Life of the Flesh is in the Blood

Posted by on May 1, 2020 in Bible Study

From the very beginning of the world, the Creator has set a prohibition of eating flesh with its life, because life is in the blood of every creature He created, whether human or animal. But do not eat flesh with its life, its blood. (Gen 9:4) This prohibition applies to the eating of flesh with blood of life in it, whether of living animals, as is the barbarous custom of the heathens in Wuhan, or of slaughtered animals from which the blood has not been properly drained, or...

The Secret Joseph Kept All His Life

Posted by on Apr 8, 2020 in Bible Study

There is a secret Yoseph (Joseph) kept all his life. He was the favorite son of his father Ya’akov from his beloved wife, who dreamed two prophetic dreams about the family. But those dreams were not the secret Joseph kept in his heart. What was that secret Joseph kept, because the Torah tells us nothing about it? Ya’akov’s sons sold Yoseph in slavery in Egypt and he would not see him for 22 years until they were once again united. We should notice a...
