Revelation

Revelation 1:10

18 December, 2016 J.K. McKee 0

reproduced from the Messianic Sabbath Helper “I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like the sound of a trumpet.” Revelation 1:10 is a frequently referenced passage, often provided by many Christians in favor of Sunday Church being a First Century development of the Apostolic era, as it tends to be concluded that the Apostle John was shown his visions of the end-times by Yeshua the Messiah on a Sunday. There are certainly a number of Bible versions that one will encounter which offer the paraphrases, “I was in the Spirit […]

Hebrews

Hebrews 4:1-10

reproduced from the Messianic Sabbath Helper “Therefore, let us fear if, while a promise remains of entering His rest, any one of you may seem to have come short of it. For indeed we have had good news preached to us, just as they also; but the word they heard did not profit them, because it was not united by faith in those who heard. For we who have believed enter that rest, just as He has said, ‘As I swore in My wrath, they shall not enter My rest’ [Psalm 95:11], although His works were finished from the foundation […]

Colossians

Colossians 2:16-23

18 December, 2016 J.K. McKee 0

reproduced from the Messianic Sabbath Helper “Therefore no one is to act as your judge in regard to food or drink or in respect to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath day—things which are a mere shadow of what is to come; but the substance belongs to Messiah. Let no one keep defrauding you of your prize by delighting in self-abasement and the worship of the angels, taking his stand on visions he has seen, inflated without cause by his fleshly mind, and not holding fast to the head, from whom the entire body, being supplied and […]

Galatians

Galatians 4:8-11

18 December, 2016 J.K. McKee 0

reproduced from the Messianic Sabbath Helper “However at that time, when you did not know God, you were slaves to those which by nature are no gods. But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, how is it that you turn back again to the weak and worthless elemental things, to which you desire to be enslaved all over again? You observe days and months and seasons and years. I fear for you, that perhaps I have labored over you in vain.” Paul’s letter to the Galatians is easily recognized to be […]

1 Corinthians

1 Corinthians 16:1-2

18 December, 2016 J.K. McKee 0

reproduced from the Messianic Sabbath Helper “Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I directed the [assemblies] of Galatia, so do you also. On the first day of every week each one of you is to put aside and save, as he may prosper, so that no collections be made when I come.” Throughout most contemporary Christian examination, 1 Corinthians 16:1-2 has been assumed to provide a First Century, New Testament testimony (frequently in association with traditional interpretations of other passages: i.e., Acts 20:7; Revelation 1:10), to an early observance of Sunday as the time for the Messiah followers […]

Romans

Romans 14

18 December, 2016 J.K. McKee 0

reproduced from the Messianic Sabbath Helper Now accept the one who is weak in faith, but not for the purpose of passing judgment on his opinions. One person has faith that he may eat all things, but he who is weak eats vegetables only. The one who eats is not to regard with contempt the one who does not eat, and the one who does not eat is not to judge the one who eats, for God has accepted him. Who are you to judge the servant of another? To his own master he stands or falls; and he will […]

Acts

Acts 20:7

18 December, 2016 J.K. McKee 0

reproduced from the Messianic Sabbath Helper “On the first day of the week, when we were gathered together to break bread, Paul began talking to them, intending to leave the next day, and he prolonged his message until midnight.” Acts 20:7 is frequently referenced as evidence indicating the early, First Century establishment of what would develop into “Sunday Church,” an institution likely as a replacement of, but certainly concurrent with, for the Jewish Believers, Saturday Shabbat. But when we read Acts 20:7, what is actually in view? The narrative statement actually occurs within Luke’s record of Paul having left Ephesus […]

Acts

Acts 18:1-8

18 December, 2016 J.K. McKee 0

reproduced from the Messianic Sabbath Helper “After these things he left Athens and went to Corinth. And he found a Jew named Aquila, a native of Pontus, having recently come from Italy with his wife Priscilla, because Claudius had commanded all the Jews to leave Rome. He came to them, and because he was of the same trade, he stayed with them and they were working, for by trade they were tent-makers. And he was reasoning in the synagogue every Sabbath and trying to persuade Jews and Greeks. But when Silas and Timothy came down from Macedonia, Paul began devoting […]

Acts

Acts 15:19-21

18 December, 2016 J.K. McKee 0

reproduced from the Messianic Sabbath Helper “Therefore it is my judgment that we do not trouble those who are turning to God from among the Gentiles, but that we write to them that they abstain from things contaminated by idols and from fornication and from what is strangled and from blood. For Moses from ancient generations has in every city those who preach him, since he is read in the synagogues every Sabbath.” The broad Messianic movement tends to be quite familiar with the Apostolic decree of Acts 15:19-21, the issues of the Jerusalem Council, and the controversies surrounding the […]

Acts

Acts 16:13; 17:2

reproduced from the Messianic Sabbath Helper “And on the Sabbath day we went outside the gate to a riverside, where we were supposing that there would be a place of prayer; and we sat down and began speaking to the women who had assembled” (Acts 16:13). “And according to Paul’s custom, he went to them, and for three Sabbaths reasoned with them from the Scriptures” (Acts 17:2). The visits of the Apostle Paul, to both Philippi and Thessalonica, are regarded as having taken place during his Second Missionary Journey (Acts 15:40-18:23).[1] Both of the communities of Messiah followers which were […]

Acts

Acts 1:12

16 December, 2016 J.K. McKee 0

reproduced from the Messianic Sabbath Helper “Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is near Jerusalem, a Sabbath day’s journey away.” The statement, “Then they returned to Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives (which is near Jerusalem, a Shabbat day’s journey)” (TLV), appears within the narrative of how following Yeshua’s ascension into Heaven, the party which witnessed it, returns to the city of Jerusalem. A Sabbath day’s journey is a length of distance derived from various Tanach passages (Exodus 16:29; Numbers 35:5; Joshua 3:4), specifying the permitted length that one could walk on Shabbat. The distance […]

reproduced from the Messianic Sabbath Helper “As He passed by, He saw a man blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, ‘Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he would be born blind?’ Yeshua answered, ‘It was neither that this man sinned, nor his parents; but it was so that the works of God might be displayed in him. We must work the works of Him who sent Me as long as it is day; night is coming when no one can work. While I am in the world, I am the Light of the world.’ When […]

John 7:21-24

reproduced from the Messianic Sabbath Helper “Yeshua answered them, ‘I did one deed, and you all marvel. For this reason Moses has given you circumcision (not because it is from Moses, but from the fathers), and on the Sabbath you circumcise a man. If a man receives circumcision on the Sabbath so that the Law of Moses will not be broken, are you angry with Me because I made an entire man well on the Sabbath? Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.’” 7:21 The dialogue between Yeshua the Messiah and various Jewish religious leaders, in […]

reproduced from the Messianic Sabbath Helper “After these things there was a feast of the Jews, and Yeshua went up to Jerusalem. Now there is in Jerusalem by the sheep gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew Bethesda, having five porticoes. In these lay a multitude of those who were sick, blind, lame, and withered, waiting for the moving of the waters; for an angel of the Lord went down at certain seasons into the pool and stirred up the water; whoever then first, after the stirring up of the water, stepped in was made well from whatever disease […]

reproduced from the Messianic Sabbath Helper “It happened that when He went into the house of one of the leaders of the Pharisees on the Sabbath to eat bread, they were watching Him closely. And there in front of Him was a man suffering from dropsy. And Yeshua answered and spoke to the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, ‘Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath, or not?’ But they kept silent. And He took hold of him and healed him, and sent him away. And He said to them, ‘Which one of you will have a son or an ox […]

reproduced from the Messianic Sabbath Helper “And He was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. And there was a woman who for eighteen years had had a sickness caused by a spirit; and she was bent double, and could not straighten up at all. When Yeshua saw her, He called her over and said to her, ‘Woman, you are freed from your sickness.’ And He laid His hands on her; and immediately she was made erect again and began glorifying God. But the synagogue official, indignant because Yeshua had healed on the Sabbath, began saying to the […]

Acts

Acts 13:14, 42-44

16 December, 2016 J.K. McKee 0

reproduced from the Messianic Sabbath Helper “But going on from Perga, they arrived at Pisidian Antioch, and on the Sabbath day they went into the synagogue and sat down” (Acts 13:14). “As Paul and Barnabas were going out, the people kept begging that these things might be spoken to them the next Sabbath. Now when the meeting of the synagogue had broken up, many of the Jews and of the God-fearing proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas, who, speaking to them, were urging them to continue in the grace of God. The next Sabbath nearly the whole city assembled to hear […]

Luke

Mark 16:1; Matthew 28:1; Luke 24:1

16 December, 2016 J.K. McKee 0

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; […]

Matthew

Matthew 24:20

16 December, 2016 J.K. McKee 0

reproduced from the Messianic Sabbath Helper “But pray that your flight will not be in the winter, or on a Sabbath.” Within the scope of examining Bible prophecy, there is a diversity of approaches to Yeshua’s Olivet Discourse, principally found in Matthew 24,[1] not just in terms of pre-millennialism (the view that the Messiah returns before His thousand-year Millennial reign), but some of other perspectives, notably including the preterist view that the “end-times” largely took place in the First Century C.E. via the fall of Jerusalem to the Romans. Pre-millennialists will largely recognize how the Olivet Discourse includes statements rooted […]
