Sometimes We Forget

I have been a believer in Yeshua (Jesus) as the Messiah for nearly 39 years now, so you would think that after all this time my faith would be perfected. I don’t mean that I should be perfect but that my faith would be. One would think that someone who has not only been a believer but also been a teacher for as long as I would have mastered the fine art of faith. Yet there are still days when I have to be reminded what faith is and what it means to trust in what Yeshua provided when he became a substitutionary offering for everyone who would believe. This is not to say that my faith is not strong nor is it to say that I am in any way to question who and what Yeshua is or how He fulfilled the

Yes, One Word Can Make a Difference

For more than seven years, I was a part of the translation team for the Tree of Life Version Bible. In my role as the Theology Team Facilitator (a big name that translates to cat herder), I came to truly understand just how the choice of one word can change the entire context and understanding of Scripture and changing one Scripture’s understanding can change the understanding of a chapter, a book or even the entire Bible.

Every year when I read through the book of Exodus and come to the series of chapters that deal with the Tabernacle I find something new that causes me to be amazed. Just think about this: The entire creation of the world is covered in only 2 chapters. In Genesis 5 we read 32 verses which cover twelve generations spanning over a thousand years. The creation of the universe and the establishment of mankind would seem to be extremely important events, yet they are covered in only a few lines of text. Then we come to the book of Exodus and 15 entire chapters are written about the design and construction of the Tabernacle from Exodus 25 to Exodus 40. This number of chapters and verses used to cov

Sabbath: Making the Invisible Visible

I have been blessed over the years to be invited to speak in churches of many varieties all over the country. When I am given the opportunity to, one of my favorite things to do is to simply open the floor to questions, and one of the most asked questions is “What about Sabbath?”. This question is asked many times, and the reason it is asked is varied. Some just want to know, “Do Messianic Jews still keep the weekly Sabbath?" Others want to know “Didn’t Yeshua (Jesus) do away with the Sabbath?” Others ask the question as a challenge “Isn’t keeping the Sabbath just another form of legalism?” and Others ask “Isn’t the Sabbath just for the Jews?” or “Isn’t Sabbath Sunday now?”. My favorite ques
