Should Jewishness of Jesus Be Ignored by Gentile Christians Today?

If someone starts telling you that in order to be a better Christian, you must begin adding Mosaic Laws, Feasts, and Festivals to your life or you must learn Hebrew or immerse yourself in Jewish culture, they are 100% wrong! However, if you decide to learn Hebrew, more about the Menorah, the Tabernacle, the Jewish Feasts, or something else related to Judaism because you are interested and you want to know these things because Jesus Himself was immersed in them, there is nothing wrong with that!

Resurrection Sunday is Actually First Fruits According to Jewish Calendar NOT Easter

Because Jesus does not have to deal with anything sinful in His own life, He is free to serve us, those who follow Him. We are told in Hebrews 4:16, that we are to “…draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”

As authors Klein and Spears point out, Christians today don’t have an accurate understanding of that passage. We somehow think that because the veil has been torn from the top to the bottom, we can simply run into the Holy of Holies without a care in the world. Isn’t that what the word “boldly” means? No.

While Jesus was Peaceful and Loving, was He a Pacifist? Pt 1

Here in the U.S., the culture is western. We don’t speak Koine Greek or Hebrew. We do not understand the Jewish mindset or culture. Because of that, we can easily miss the meaning of Scripture because we simply aren’t familiar with Jewish idioms, or Hebrew poetic language. Not knowing these things can be a roadblock in truly understanding God’s Word.

Why is SodaStream Being Boycotted by Coca-Cola?

But could all of this just be coincidence? “Oxfam backs the Palestinian Authority (PA) position, which views all of Judea and Samaria as rightfully Arab land.” How could that be coincidence? If Oxfam supports the PA position against Israel and Coca-Cola has supported Oxfam with millions of dollars and is headed by a Muslim, what does that tell you?

Bill Clinton Opens Mouth and Out Comes Hubris

Muslims in Israel have freedom and they know it. The Muslims there – like Muslims in other countries surrounding Israel – are largely Arab. An Arab is an Arab. There is no such thing as Palestinian Arab. That individual simply does not exist. It is a created term, one used as propaganda.

Examples of Fearing God, Not Man

We arrive to the part of the story where Esther tells Mordecai that she will go and talk to the king. She did not know if she would live or die by doing so, but she knew what she must do, regardless of the danger to her own life of going to the king without invitation. Anyone who approached him without his consent could die. If he did not invite them into his throne room, that person would be executed, even the queen.

Social Gospel, Pt. 2

Jesus approached ministry by often meeting the physical needs of people. But He always shared the gospel with them. He fed thousands. He healed the sick. He cared for people tangibly, but He always taught and preached. That is what Christians are called to do.

Daniel 9 and the 70 Weeks, Pt. 2

Since Daniel was thinking in terms of years, Gabriel’s words to him were almost a play on words. In effect, Gabriel was saying, “Daniel, it’s not seventy years, but seventy sevens of years.” The Hebrew word shābûá in the text literally means “sevens” or more precisely, “a period of sevens.” Had the Hebrew word meant “weeks,” (as translated) the text in the original language would have been shavuot.

Why Are Liberals Determined to Change America?

If it wasn’t so true, it might be comical. Unfortunately, because it is true, it is far from comical. When I ask (in the title of this article) why liberals seem to determined to change America, I’m speaking of what appears to be the general view held by a majority of liberals in America. Certainly, there are exceptions to every rule.

And the Normalcy Continues…

The point is that though judgment was coming and did come to Noah’s generation as well as Lot’s, life went on with a sense of normalcy that guided most people’s lives each day. In spite of the fact that Noah was building this huge boat in the middle of a field, people continued with their lives. They married, they gave in marriage, they worked, they cooked meals, they did the normal things that people do today.
