I have had a number of interactions with people who identify as adherents of the “Two-House teaching.” They claim that Yeshua (Jesus) only came to save people designated as “the lost sheep of the House of Israel,” meaning the Ten Lost Tribes of the Northern Kingdom. Can you help me with this?
I am having difficulty understanding the writings of the Apostle Paul. In my spirit, I believe his letters to be inspired of the Holy One, but in reading them I sense that they might be opposed to Torah. Can you help me with this?
I really do not get the “Messianic movement.” Jesus said that He came to bring us all new wine, and told us that you can’t put new wine in old wineskins. The old way of Judaism has been replaced by the new way of Christianity.
Is it not true that the idea of an intermediate afterlife in Heaven or Hell is predicated on dualism? Is it not true that dualism was a philosophical view that originated with the Greeks, and not with Scripture?
There are many who try to say, with poor linguistic support. That “the Word was God” only means that Yeshua was supernatural, but not actually God. Why is this a false conclusion?
Many people in the Torah movement have lost sight of the most significant event in human history: the death, burial, and resurrection of Yeshua the Messiah. They frequently deny that we live in a post-resurrection era, with some new spiritual realities.
The Messianic movement is not evangelical Protestantism. One has to recognize that its small size is rooted within the Jewish experience, and learn how to carefully navigate through its different sectors, in order to maintain unity and spiritual blessing.
Do various bodies of literature, outside of the canon of Genesis-Revelation, have any role to play in our understanding of various theological and spiritual issues?
When the disciple Thomas declared “My Lord and my God,” was this really a declaration of Yeshua being God, or could it not be the ancient equivalent of “Oh my God!”?
I am very concerned about the wide number of Messianic men and women I see in their twenties and thirties (and even forties) who are unmarried. What are they going to do if they are unable to find a spouse?
There are different groups which one will encounter today, who use the term “Messianic” in some form or fashion. What do each of these groups really stand for, in terms of their mission and theology? How challenging is it, to perhaps find a diversity of people attending your local Messianic congregation—without even realizing it?
How can today’s Messianic movement believe that the Law of Moses still has some part to play, when Galatians 3:24 is clear that the Law was only in effect “until Christ came”?
