Are You One of the Chosen People or Are You One of the Chosen People

As a Messianic rabbi, I have had the opportunity to travel around the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Central America. On my journeys to share my faith with people in the different countries I have visited, quite often after I speak, one or more of the people from the conference or church body at which I was sharing would come up to me and say these words, “I wish I was Jewish.” When I hear these words, I know they are referring to the Jewish people being G-D’s chosen and that in their hearts, they are trying to express a desire to have a connection to G-D that they believe is unavailable to them simply because they were born into a non-Jewish family. I know the people that speak those w

Deuteronomy The Book that Shouldn't Have Been?

There are many things in the Bible that help me to have confidence and faith in the overpowering forgiveness of G-D. One of the most significant is the book of Deuteronomy. Yes, the last book of the Torah, or first five books of the Bible. You may wonder why I would consider the book of Deuteronomy such a faith builder.

Over the years, I have answered that question in different ways as my faith has grown and my understanding of both the Scriptures and myself has increased. The truth is that there was not one thing or event that caused my faith to shift so radically. There in fact were two things. The first thing was my realization of the miracle of Israel. The very existence of the modern restoration of the ancient nation was my first step toward a faith transi

Seeing Past a Talking Donkey

One of the most beloved Bible stories found in the Torah takes place in the book of Numbers chapter 22. It is here where we read about Balaam and his talking donkey. Every child who has ever read a children’s Bible is familiar with this story. Every parent that has been to either synagogue or church has heard about Balaam and his donkey. And every rabbi or pastor has given at least one sermon based upon this story. It is always easy to find an anecdote in which we can compare either Balaam or his donkey and there is always a good donkey joke available to share. However, many times in the midst of sharing about the miracle of a talking donkey, we miss a much deeper lesson that is shared in
