Did the Great Tribulation freak you out as a kid? Or maybe it still does. Did Yeshua talk to his disciples like they'd go through it? Does the ancient prophecy of Jeremiah signal hope or doom? And why does Hebrew compare the Great Tribulation to...polygamy? Regardless of your views, this conversation will give you some new information and make you …
 
Most people would say the Mishnah is dry and boring and to be honest I agree. What keeps me going through its thousands of pages is how it's the backdrop to the story of Yeshua. These writings came from the same world as the New Testament, and while they're not Scripture you can definitely hear the voice of your beloved and see reflections of his b…
 
Saul of Tarsus grew up in Jerusalem learning from the greatest sage of his generation. That means he probably had the Hebrew Bible memorized, along with the Mishnah as it existed in his time. And, surprise! If you know what to look for you can see his Hebraic mindset peeking through even in his Greek letters. Here's an example. This is a takeaway f…
 
Simon had lots of names. There was Peter or "Petros", and then Cephas or "Kefa". And what about his Dad, was he Jonah or John? Surprisingly, the Greek name "Petros" also has a Hebrew meaning that turns up in several places in the New Testament and also in Jewish writings. Simon says to check it out! This is a takeaway from my newest Mishnah Snapsho…
 
Remember when Yeshua visited his hometown and read from Isaiah and everybody freaked out? This is something that's still done in synagogues today! Noooo not the flash mob part, I mean the part about reading from the Prophets. It's called the "Haftarah" and the earliest record we have of this custom is actually the New Testament. I should warn you t…

Torah says not to let the names of pagan gods even be heard from our lips. But it also mentions Chemosh the national deity of Moab, and Paul says hi to a guy named Hermes at the end of one of his letters. Are we just supposed to say BEEEEP when reading these verses out loud? This is a takeaway from my newest Hebrew Verses study. We also talked abou…
 
The "Epistle to the Hebrews" said the old covenant was obsolete and ready to disappear. But Israel did the opposite of disappearing. Not only that, there are prophecies about a future Temple and a time when the nations will celebrate Sukkot and other "old covenant" holidays. So what gives? Is there a timeframe that reconciles all the verses? This i…
 
Why do Jewish people read the story of Amalek for the Festival of Purim? And what if Purim isn't just about past villains like Haman and Hitler, what if the greatest battle is yet to come? Could celebrating Purim help you prepare for the future? And why isn't DECEMber the TENTH month anymore? This is a takeaway from my newest Mishnah Snapshots stud…
 
What does "Gentile" mean in the New Testament? Somebody who's not Jewish? Pagan? Is it accurate to say you're a Gentile, or is that a dirty word? Why did Yeshua say "let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax-collector"? This is a takeaway from my newest Hebrew Verses study. We also talked about these questions: ~How was Phoebe a deacon when she wasn…
 
I was raised on the NASB and then in my teens joined "Bible Quizzing" and memorized several books of the New Testament in the NIV. Let's talk about using different translations to see the Word through new eyes, and then experience it by reading Romans 12:1 in Hebrew! This is a takeaway from my newest Hebrew Verses study. We also talked about these …
 
Paul said there's neither Jew nor Gentile in Christ...does that mean Jewish people who believe in Yeshua aren't Jewish anymore, or that Christians shouldn't do Jewish things? Let's look at an often-overlooked passage where Paul says your story will glorify God in different ways depending on whether you're Heeb or Goy. This is a takeaway from my new…
 
I love history. It's one of the reasons I love the Mishnah - it's packed with historical snapshots from the world of Yeshua and his disciples! Here's an example, along with a couple bonus rants on how you can prove that the Jews really are Jews and how James called the meeting places of the early Christians "synagogues". This is a takeaway from my …
 
Peter himself said that Paul was hard to understand. How do you know YOU'RE not misunderstanding Paul as you sit there reading a translation of his letters in a totally different religious and cultural context as if you were listening to only one side of a heated phone conversation? Here are five tips to make sure you don't end up being one of "tho…
 
Yeshua grew up on the story of Choni, who lived a couple generations before him and was famous for that time he drew a circle around himself and told God he wouldn't move until it rained and...let's read the story and see what happened! This is a takeaway from my newest Mishnah Snapshots study. We also talked about these questions: ~Why did people …
 
Paul described himself as a "Hebrew of Hebrews". So would you be surprised if I showed you places where his Hebrew brain showed through in his Greek letters? For instance, in Romans 13 "debt" and "love" are related, and so are "friend" and "hurt"...ouch. This is a takeaway from my newest Hebrew Verses study. We also talked about these questions: ~W…
 
Do you know what the word "kaballah" actually means, or why Jewish people call the prophetic book of Joel that? And how about the Torah, is that just Genesis to Deuteronomy or is the rest of the Hebrew Bible and maybe even the New Testament "Torah" also? This is a takeaway from my newest Mishnah Snapshots study. We also talked about these questions…
 
If you like rants you'll enjoy me tearing apart the "say the sinner's prayer and you'll go to heaven" mentality as a false gospel. Because confessing Yeshua is the consuming pursuit of a lifetime, not a pat one-time formula. Along the way I also go on several 'rabbi trails' to explain why approaching the Scriptures as a story can save you from a fa…
 
Have you ever noticed what we do in the rain? Either we scrunch up and run for cover or we throw our hands in the air and start laughing and jumping around! Let's look at pictures of people in the rain, imagine what we'll be doing right after we get raised from the dead, and talk about why an ancient Jewish prayer smunches rainfall and the resurrec…
 
This is probably the closest I've come to crying on film. Yeshua and his Jewish people both experienced pain, rejection, and failure for the same reason - so the world could be reconciled, brought to life, and enriched. And that's not the end of the story for Israel either; the best is yet to be! All of this relates to a secret Jewish belief that t…
 
Why do Jewish boys grow up with their dads telling them every weekend they hope they'll be more like Joseph's boys? And why did Paul use that phrase "the fullness of the nations" that Jacob used for Ephraim? And if the hardening was only partial and temporary, what did God's relationship with the Jewish community and their leaders look like? This i…
 
If I walked up and said "I chose you!" what would you say? "Um, ok...what am I chosen for?" So what does that look like with God choosing Israel? And when Paul says they're enemies and loved, what does that mean now? This is a takeaway from my newest Hebrew Verses study. We also talked about these questions: ~What do you feel when you hear that "al…
 
Why are the Hebrew words for "neck" and "commandment" related? Because just as the neck connects the body to the head, God's traditions are opportunities to connect with him. You might not be "Torah-observant", but how could you allow this principle to rekindle the love in your relationship with God? What if you just whispered "I love you" every ti…
 
In Yeshua's time the Mount of Olives had come to be called by another name which pointed to Messiah in startling ways. Was it any surprise he had so many special experiences there, including one which hasn't happened yet? This is a takeaway from my newest Mishnah Snapshots study. We also talked about these questions: ~Setting the NT in its Semitic …
 
Did you know the Hebrew words for rope and Christ come from the same verb? Are these concepts "tied" together on a deeper level or "knot"? Let's look at how tzitzit symbolize Messiah, the "thread" running from Genesis to Revelation. We'll also talk about why Jews believe in two Messiahs and imagine how the New Moon signal fires foretold the message…
 
The Torah says Aviv in the springtime is the first month of the year, but the Jewish New Year is on Tishrei in the fall. The Torah also calls the first of Tishrei "Yom Teruah", but Jewish people today call it "Rosh Hashanah". What gives, is Judaism wrong? Let's look at all the verses, and you'll see that Rosh Hashanah is actually 100% Biblical. Thi…
 
Every translation is an interpretation and Romans 10:4 is no exception. People read "Christ is the end of the Law" and assume Jesus did away with the Torah...except he said not to think that. So what gives? Let's look at how the Greek word for "end" is used elsewhere in the NT. Maybe we can find an interpretation that actually agrees with the rest …
 
There's an old Jewish teaching that a righteous person's "merit" has the power to positively affect the people around them. Does Messiah have merit? And if so, is that a paranormal power that could affect you? This is a takeaway from my newest Mishnah Snapshots study. We also talked about whether your relationship with the Jewish community is mostl…
 
Izzy here. A question came up recently in our volunteers circle about Messiah and his relationship to his "Abba". This impromptu video was my response. Originally it was intended as a private discussion, but I decided to share it with you here as a peek behind the scenes, a chance hear our Tribe's heartbeat and feel the passion that drives me perso…
 
Have you ever heard somebody say that Christianity's a religion of grace and Judaism's all about works? It's not true. Take a look at this prayer that millions of Jews pray every year on the Day of Atonement that tells it like it is. I'll even sing it for you! This is a takeaway from my newest Hebrew Verses study. We also talked about the Hebrew wo…
 
It's neat to read about the relationship that disciples had with their rabbis in ancient Judaism because it's a picture of the relationship that we have with our Rabbi from Nazareth. Here's an example. This is a takeaway from my newest Mishnah Snapshots study. We also talked about why Abraham's bosom is the Hebrew emblem of the afterlife, the real …
 
Paul talked about national Israel in overwhelmingly positive ways, and the gut-wrenching care he felt for the Jewish community was a reflection of Yeshua's own heart. If you don't get that you're not going to get Paul, because that fierce love is the context of his writings. What would it look like for that same love to take over your life? This is…
 
"IF YOU'RE THIRSTY COME TO ME AND DRINK!" Did you know Jerusalem was in the throes of an ecstatic celebration when Yeshua jumped up and yelled these immortal words, and that this ceremony stopped for almost 2000 years until it was started again in 2014? How about the meaning of "Siloam", were you aware that it was lost but that it contains a key fo…
 
Falling in love with a god. Or that moment when someone you don't recognize walks up and says they knew you long ago. Or how about the overwhelming deja vu that you were meant to be here, right now. Let's look at the Hebrew words for foreknowledge and predestination and see if we can't feel the romance and mystery anew. Because he is here. This is …
 
The New Testament was written by Jews. Here's an example of how discovering the Jewish backdrop of the Gospels can bring the old stories to life like never before. This is a takeaway from my newest Mishnah Snapshots study. We also talked why Jared Kushner's bouquet didn't have any flowers, the gorgeous Hebraic Bible commentary of Reformed Baptist p…
 
Jesus didn't make up discipleship. There were lots of rabbis and disciples. What he did do was invite people into a rabbi-disciple relationship with himself, and he's still doing it! What if learning about the Jewish way of discipleship could help you understand that relationship better? This is a takeaway from my newest Mishnah Snapshots study. We…
 
Paul taught that just as Yeshua fulfilled the Torah, when we walk according to his Spirit we too will fulfill the Torah. He also said that an unspiritual mindset will automatically reject the Torah. Let's unpack that. This is a takeaway from my newest Hebrew Verses study. We also talked about why we say Yeshua instead of "Yay"shua even though that'…
 
In Hebrew a word can have multiple meanings, but that richness gets lost in translation. Here's an ancient Midrash about Israel's Father in Heaven and how he makes us clean inside, springboarding from one of those multi-faceted words. This is a takeaway from my newest Mishnah Snapshots study. We also talked about why they say God's name is "ineffab…
 
The apostle Paul taught that the Torah is spiritual and that our inner person absolutely delights in it. Join me in a meditation on the wonders of God's law and the puzzling question of why it sometimes gets a bad rap in pop theology. This is a takeaway from my newest Hebrew Verses study. We also talked about Yeshua and how as the Law made flesh he…
 
Did you know that in 30 A.D. several famous miracles that were happening in the Second Temple mysteriously stopped? Also, where was God during the "silent years" between Malachi and Matthew? You may be surprised to learn that he wasn't absent from his people, and was really quite busy. This is a takeaway from my newest Mishnah Snapshots study. We a…
 
Paul said God's law and commandments are holy, righteous, and GOOD. But that's not always how the 613 get talked about in Christian circles. Why is that? This is a takeaway from my newest Hebrew Verses study. We also talked about what to do if you're reading Hebrew and don't know a word, whether you have a relationship with the Bible or the God of …
