POSTED 21 DECEMBER, 2016 reproduced from the Messianic Kosher Helper “The Pharisees and some of the scribes gathered around Him when they had come from Jerusalem, and had seen that some of His disciples were eating their bread with impure hands, that is, unwashed. (For the Pharisees and all the Jews do not eat unless they carefully wash their hands, thus observing the traditions of the elders; and when they come from the market place, they do not eat unless they cleanse themselves; and there are many other things which they have received in order to observe, such as the […]

And He was in the wilderness forty days being tempted by Satan; and He was with the wild beasts, and the angels were ministering to Him” (Mark 1:12-13). “Then Yeshua was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And after He had fasted forty days and forty nights, He then became hungry. And the tempter came and said […]

POSTED 05 APRIL, 2017 This entry has been reproduced from the forthcoming book Salvation on the Line: The Nature of Yeshua and His Divinity “Immediately Yeshua made His disciples get into the boat and go ahead of Him to the other side to Bethsaida, while He Himself was sending the crowd away. After bidding them farewell, He left for the mountain to pray. When it was evening, the boat was in the middle of the sea, and He was alone on the land. Seeing them straining at the oars, for the wind was against them, at about the fourth watch […]

reproduced from the Messianic Sabbath Helper “When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought spices, so that they might come and anoint Him” (Mark 16:1). One of the major claims present, throughout Christian history, is that the resurrection of Yeshua the Messiah taking place on the first day of the week, somehow validates a transfer of the seventh-day Sabbath to Sunday, or invalidates the institution of the seventh-day Sabbath. All three of the Synoptic Gospels have something to say about what happened regarding the timing of Yeshua’s resurrection (Mark 16:1; Matthew 28:1; […]

POSTED 26 MARCH, 2017 This entry has been reproduced from the forthcoming book Salvation on the Line: The Nature of Yeshua and His Divinity “But of that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone” (Mark 13:32). “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone” (Matthew 24:36). The statement made by Yeshua the Messiah, in His Olivet Discourse about the time of His return, has generated no small discussion about His nature: “No one knows […]

reproduced from the Messianic Sabbath Helper “Yeshua went out from there and came into His hometown; and His disciples followed Him. When the Sabbath came, He began to teach in the synagogue; and the many listeners were astonished, saying, ‘Where did this man get these things, and what is this wisdom given to Him, and such miracles as these performed by His hands?’” Previously in Mark’s Gospel, Yeshua the Messiah has just raised the daughter of Jairus, a synagogue official (Mark 5:21-43). Continuing in Mark’s record, Yeshua returns to His hometown of Nazareth: “He went away from there and came […]

reproduced from the Messianic Sabbath Helper “He entered again into a synagogue; and a man was there whose hand was withered. They were watching Him to see if He would heal him on the Sabbath, so that they might accuse Him. He said to the man with the withered hand, ‘Get up and come forward!’ And He said to them, ‘Is it lawful to do good or to do harm on the Sabbath, to save a life or to kill?’ But they kept silent. After looking around at them with anger, grieved at their hardness of heart, He said to […]

reproduced from the Messianic Sabbath Helper “And it happened that He was passing through the grainfields on the Sabbath, and His disciples began to make their way along while picking the heads of grain. The Pharisees were saying to Him, ‘Look, why are they doing what is not lawful on the Sabbath?’ And He said to them, ‘Have you never read what David did when he was in need and he and his companions became hungry; how he entered the house of God in the time of Abiathar the high priest, and ate the consecrated bread, which is not lawful […]

reproduced from the Messianic Sabbath Helper “They went into Capernaum; and immediately on the Sabbath He entered the synagogue and began to teach. They were amazed at His teaching; for He was teaching them as one having authority, and not as the scribes” (Mark 1:21-22). Mark 1:21-22 The wider setting of Yeshua teaching at the synagogue in Capernaum, is preceded with the Messiah calling out to the new disciples Simon, Andrew, James, and John, as they were fishing on the Sea of Galilee (1:16-19). These individuals immediately follow Yeshua (1:20), and going into Capernaum, it is noted how Yeshua enters […]

UPDATED 01 FEBRUARY, 2015 What does it mean that “Jesus declared all foods clean”? Does this mean that the kosher dietary laws were abolished by the Messiah? I am confused.
