Hebrews Introduction

This is the first episode of our Study in the book of Hebrews. In Hebrews chapter 1 we are introduced to the Son whom God has spoken through in the last days. This one is the Messiah and many prophecies are given in the first chapter to establish that the Son is the...

The Vision of Daniel 7

 By Dan Bergman | The handwriting was not yet on the wall. Daniel had not yet seen the inside of that lion’s den. It was 553 B.C. – the first year of Belshazzar’s reign in Babylon. Although recorded later in our Bibles, the events of Daniel 7 actually take...

The Vision of Daniel 2

By Ken Symes | Daniel is a book of prophecy that in the Jewish order of the Bible, the Tenach, is grouped with the history books and not the prophetic books. If we are to understand it, as well as its significance today, two questions must be asked and answered. The...

The New Covenant and the Church

by Dan Bergman | “It’s a Jewish thing.” This was printed on Frank’s shirt below a Star of David with a cross in the center. Frank garnered lots of attention (both good and bad) from his Jewish neighbors, which was his intent. He was trying to communicate a...

The New Covenant and Israel

by Ken Symes | The primary passage promising the New Covenant is Jeremiah 31:31-34. 31. Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32. Not according to the covenant that I made with...

The Inerrancy of the Bible

By Ken Overby |  Since God is the highest authority, then the Word of God is its own authority. "For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself." 1 David penned, "thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name." 2...

Old Testament & New Testament: What Should We Understand about the Bible?

By Mark Robinson |  As the preacher approached the pulpit, he placed his Bible on the platform, looked at the congregants in front of him, and said, “Open your Bibles to the Old Testament.” The next Sunday might be the same procedure with the difference being,...

Glorification

By Dan Bergman It had been a long time since God Himself breathed into his nostrils - 935 years to be exact. He had gotten old, weak, and sickly. The depravity of his own nature had taken a great toll, and was about to deal its final blow. He had seen the effects of...

Sanctification

By Ken Overby Salvation’s ongoing work of sanctification is the subject of chapter six through chapter eight verse sixteen of Romans. As believers in Jesus, we understand that salvation is “not of works.”1 Salvation is not only to be appreciated in the past or to...

Justification

By Ken SymesThe Bible teaches that salvation for the believer is past, present and future. In the Bible, salvation past is embodied in the doctrine of justification. Of the 29 uses of this term and its derivatives in Paul’s writings, 25 are used in two of his...

ORTHODOX JUDAISM

Rev. Dan Bergman   Although the biblical period before the Jewish people returned from Babylonian captivity is linked with “modern Orthodox Judaism,” it differs in many ways from Abraham’s worship of the Creator, Moses’ giving of the Law, and David’s...

CONSERVATIVE JUDAISM

Rev. Ken Overby “To be conservative means to ‘conserve’ the Jewish traditions in the Torah and Talmud.” This was the comment of a Conservative rabbi when I asked him to explain his branch of Judaism to me. Only 18% of American Jews follow Conservative...

REFORM JUDAISM

Rev. Mark Robinson Up until the 19th century there was only one form of Judaism - Orthodox Judaism. Certainly there were Jewish people who were atheists and those who claimed to be agnostics. But if one wanted to practice the religion of Judaism it came in only one...

THE FULLNESS OF THE GENTILES

Rev. Ken Symes“The term ‘the fullness of the Gentiles’ refers to the present age in which Gentiles predominate  in the church and far exceed Israel in present spiritual blessing... the fullness of the Gentiles will be completed when God’s present task of winning...

THE TIMES OF THE GENTILES

Rev. Dan Bergman The disciples likely had a sinking feeling in the pit of their stomachs. The Messiah had just prophesied of the Temple’s complete and utter destruction. Things were becoming terribly discouraging. Jesus had already begun to tell them of His coming...

HISTORY IS HIS STORY

Rev. Mark Robinson “History is His Story” has been an oft-used phrase. For the Bible believing Christian with almost any knowledge of the Bible, there is an instantaneous acknowledgement of this truth. For the humanist, and this would include the secular humanist...

MESSIAH AS OUR PASSOVER LAMB

Rev. Dan Bergman          The freshly plucked hyssop branch became heavy, as it soaked up the thick blood from the clay basin. Smelling the pungent copper-like stench of so much blood was difficult to avoid. The air was filled...

MESSIAH IN THE DAY OF ATONEMENT

by Mark Robinson “Our Rabbis taught: During the last forty years before the destruction of the Temple…the lot [“For the Lord”] did not come up in the right hand; nor did the crimson-coloured strap become white; nor did the western-most light shine; and the doors...

MESSIAH IN THE TABERNACLE

Rev. Dan Bergman  "And Let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them. According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it.”  Exodus 25:8-9      For almost 500 years,...

MESSIAH AS THE BRIDEGROOM

by Rev. Mark Robinson      With palpable joy, the bridegroom recited the betrothal vow to his prospective bride. “Behold you are consecrated unto me with this ring according to the law of Moses and Israel.” Accompanying this statement would be...

WHY DECEMBER 25TH?

By Mark Robinson It has become almost universal in agreement that Jesus was born on December 25th. Children sing about this in their church Christmas plays. Secular media commentators reference this day as Jesus’ birth during the Christmas season. Even the “Jesus...

WHEN WAS JESUS BORN?

By Rev. Dan Bergman      There is much in our Christmas culture that makes us find it difficult to imagine any setting for the nativity other than a cold winter’s night. Take the example from the Christmas carol "In the Bleak Midwinter’" which I’ll admit, I really...

The Four Surrenders of Jerusalem

By Mark Robinson Edmund Allenby, Field Marshall General of the British forces that captured Jerusalem in 1917, was thrust into history through the events surrounding the surrender of Jerusalem – four times. The story is told by Major Vivian Gilbert of the British...

100 YEARS: THE BALFOUR DECLARATION 1917 – 2017

By Rev. Mark Robinson One hundred years ago, a brief 67-word statement, within a short letter, laid the foundation for the birth of the nation of Israel. Since the sending of that letter, this statement has reverberated down through the corridors of history. There...

70 YEARS – ISRAEL AS A NATION 1947-2017

By Dan Bergman 1,811 years had passed. It was the longest recorded expulsion of a people from their homeland. In 70 A.D. the Roman general Titus breached the walls of Jerusalem, and destroyed the Temple (just as Jesus prophesied). Over one million Jews were killed....

50 YEARS – JERUSALEM UNITED 1967-2017

Y’SHUA

JEHOVAH

by Dan Bergman      It was an amazing sight to behold. The flames licked the leaves of this flourishing bush – and, yet, it remained unharmed by the raging fire engulfing it. A voice calls to Moses out of this bush. It was the God of his people...

IMMANUEL

By Keith Megilligan      God with us! From the time you were in Sunday School or maybe one of your first Christmas cards, this name/title of God has become very familiar to most Christians. “Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled...

HaKADOSH

By Kenneth G. Symes       It is an interesting fact that very little has been written on this name of God. And yet it is clearly stated to be one of His names. Speaking of the God of Israel the Psalmist wrote:  “The LORD is great in...

ELOHIM

By Moshe Gold      According to The Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament, the Hebrew word Elohim is the most used name translated into English as God. This noun, used in the plural, is consistently associated with singular verbs, adjectives...

ADONAI

By Mark Robinson “For the LORD your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward.” Deuteronomy 10:17      Adonai is the plural of Adon and means master, ruler or...

ZECHARIAH

by Dr. Keith Megilligan Zechariah is simply identified to us as a "prophet" in 1:1. His time for living and ministry are given in Ezra 6:14 - "And the elders of the Jews builded, and they prospered through the prophesying of Haggai the prophet and Zechariah the son...

DANIEL

By Rev. Dan Bergman It was 605 BC, the third year of King Jehoiakim's reign. Daniel was a boy living in Jerusalem. Some say he was a teenager, but the Hebrew simply doesn't support it. He had to have been younger. He was most likely of royal descent. He definitely...

ISAIAH

By Rev. Mark Robinson It is certainly not hyperbole when many commentators refer to Isaiah as the prince of prophets. His writings will take you from the depths of sin, hypocrisy, and political and religious degradation to the heights of righteousness, holiness, and...

BIBLICAL DISPENSATIONS

by Ken Symes To understand the Bible we must recognize that the Bible is God’s infallible Word, that there are no contradictions, and that God’s revelation to man is progressive (cf. Isaiah 28:9-10). Additionally, an understanding of Biblical dispensations is...

Dispensations and Israel – PRESENT

by Dr. Keith Megilligan Church history has brought us to an interesting place in our theological understanding of God’s working out His plan. The outworking of this plan has been reviewed by church historians and theologians since the inception of the church. One...

Dispensationalism and Israel – PAST

by Ken Overby When Abraham heard these seminal words, “I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all...

Dispensations and Israel – FUTURE

By Mark Robinson When dispensational teaching and Israel in the future are considered, we are primarily talking about the coming kingdom age of 1,000 years (Millennial Kingdom). The still future Tribulation period, in the dispensational motif, is considered part of...

IDENTIFYING THE MESSIAH – WHO? HOW?

By Rev. Mark Robinson "The Messiah is dead!" "The Messiah is dead!" As the word filtered throughout the community, denial was paramount in the minds of many of the believers. "It can’t be! Just yesterday we were greeting him with, ‘Long live our master, our...

ISRAEL’S FALSE MESSIAHS

by Dan Bergman The idea of a coming Messiah is central to the teachings of the Hebrew Scriptures. Within them, there are a plethora of prophecies describing all manner of specific details regarding the person of the Messiah, the Anointed One. In fact, we can find a...

MESSIAH: PROPHET, PRIEST AND KING

By Ken Symes In the Old Testament economy there were three classes of public servants: prophets, priests and kings. All appointed to one of these offices were consecrated by being anointed with oil (prophet, 1 Kings 19:16b; priest, Exodus 28:41; king, 1 Samuel 15:1)....

MESSIANIC EXPECTATIONS IN ISRAEL

by Dr. Keith Megilligan Messianism thrives on suffering. Abba Hillel Silver The Jews of history anticipated the coming of the Messiah with various historical “triggers” which set off calculations as to when the Messiah’s return would be or could be expected. In...

JACOB: SCOUNDREL OR SAINT?

by Rev. Mark Robinson In a marriage arranged from “on high”, Isaac, at the age of forty, would marry Rebekah, daughter of Bethuel, Abraham's brother's son. They had a great desire to have children, but for twenty years Rebekah had been barren. They sought the...

ISAAC

by Keith Megilligan There is a certain chain-linked relationship which the early patriarchs inherited. The Old Testament reference to the three founders of Israel is almost formulaic. “The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob” is the standard form of reference. This...

ABRAHAM

by Dan Bergman Travel back with me over four thousand years to the desert plains of a place called Ur (modern-day southern Iraq). It is in this ancient place that our story begins. It is a journey full of trials, promises, and blessings. It is a story that tells the...

THE UNHOLY TRINITY

by Rev. Ken Overby Revelation 16:13-14 mentions “the dragon,” “the beast,” and “the false prophet.” “And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For...

BIRTH OF A NATION

by Mark Robinson Birth or labor pains is the beginning of the end of a long process. Some nine months earlier the expectant mom becomes aware of the promise of a birth. Suddenly, and in some ways unexpectedly, the first labor pain grips the body. Time is short - but,...

SATAN’S HATRED FOR ISRAEL

by Rev. Ken Symes Revelation chapters 12-14 form one prophecy referencing events covering at least 2,000 years. These referenced events take us from the birth of Messiah to His supervision over the Divine judgments in the closing days of the outpouring of God’s...

BOWL JUDGMENTS

by Rev. Ken Overby A final trumpet blast concludes the annual Feast of Rosh Hashanah and begins the countdown to “Yom Ha-Din” – the Day of Judgment. Jewish tradition teaches that the ten “awesome days” that follow Rosh Hashanah are for repentance, so that one’s...

TRUMPET JUDGMENTS

by Rev. Dan Bergman Introduction to the Trumpets In viewing the previous judgments the Lord will pour out upon mankind in the seven year time period known as the Tribulation, it can easily be seen that as time progresses, these judgments escalate. The final seal...

SEAL JUDGMENTS

by Rev. Mark Robinson In Jewish writings there are many references to a time of suffering before the advent of the Messiah. A couple of references will illustrate this concept. Raphael Patai, in his book The Messiah Texts, said about the Messianic texts, “The idea...

JEWISH WRITINGS

by Dan Bergman One would be misinformed to think that religious Jewish writings consist of only the Tanakh (Old Testament) and the Talmud. There are many other Jewish documents dating from the 4th century B.C. through the late 13th century A.D. An understanding of...

TENACH

by Rev. Mark Robinson The word Tenach is probably unfamiliar to many of our readers. This is the term Jewish people use when referring to what Christians call the Old Testament. It is the entire Jewish Bible, made up of the exact same number of verses as the Old...

TALMUD

by Dr. Keith Megilligan “You have heard that it was said to those of old…You have heard that it was said...It was also said…” Jesus uttered these phrases near the beginning of His teaching of what has become known as His “Sermon on the Mount” found in Matthew...

Isaiah 52:13 - 53:12 by Rev. Dan Bergman “Behold, my servant shall deal prudently, he shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high. 14 As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men: 15 So shall...

REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY: A BAD IDEA WHOSE TIME HAS NOT COME…

ANTI-SEMITISM IN THE NAME OF CHRISTIAN LOVE?

By Mark Robinson   "Be aware that replacement theologists are gathering in Bethlehem for a 4-day conference to be unbelievably called "Jesus at the Check Post. The main aim of this event is to drive a wedge between Christian Zionists, Evangelicals, and...

DEAR PASTOR

Dear Pastor,      I invite you to grab a cup of coffee and join me for a few minutes at a table in a little town called Emmaus and allow Jesus to warm our weary souls. I have had the privilege of serving as a Pastor for the last 20 years and as an Assistant Pastor...

CHURCH REPLACING ISRAEL?

Becky Yeh - OneNewsNow, August 24th, 2011 One Messianic Jew says replacement theology is a dangerous teaching that is growing within the Christioan Church and breeding anti-Semitism. He contends, If you were to take all of the 70-plus times in the New Testament when...

FEAST OF FIRST FRUITS

by Rev. Ken Overby       Mark it on your calendars now. The Feast of First Fruits is April, 19-20. But don’t get your hopes up that the local party store will be stocked up for the celebration. I doubt your neighborhood Judaica store will either. But if you have...

PASSOVER AND THE FOUR CUPS

By Rev. Dan Bergman       Trying to fully grasp the modern Passover can be an intimidating task to any believer who has not experienced the unique perspective of a Jewish upbringing. Although of Jewish heritage on my father’s side, like many “Samaritans”, I was...

JERUSALEM: THE HOLY CITY

JERUSALEM: CENTER OF WORLD REDEMPTION

PSALM 89

by Moshe Gold The Tabernacle of David Psalm 89 was written during a stressful time in the history of the Jewish people. Jerusalem was in ruins, and the people of Israel were without a godly king; they had lost control over their destiny and in this weak and helpless...

PSALM 40

PSALM 24

by Rev. Mark Robinson      In the pursuit of everyday life, mankind is oblivious to the sovereignty of the divine King of kings. The world, and its problems, seems to continually turn with no answers to the dilemmas of life. Islamic terrorism, the cultural and...

PASSOVER, EASTER, AND THE EARLY CHURCH

by Moshe Gold I remember being asked by a pastor, who was looking for an innovative way of celebrating Easter, how I celebrated it. I told him that for me, Passover was Easter. For although I have participated in Easter Sunday celebrations, for many, like myself, who...

ELIJAH AND PASSOVER

MESSIAH

by Dan Bergman Andrew, the son of Jonah, sat and listened intently as a wildly bold preacher proclaimed to his people a message of repentance and the coming Messiah. This expectation of the Messiah’s advent was most likely ingrained in Andrew’s mind by his...

THE SON OF MAN

by Mark Robinson A common refrain throughout the Word of God is the term Son of man. In the Old Testament the term is used almost exclusively of the prophet Ezekiel. In the New Testament the term is used exclusively of Jesus with one possible exception. Son of man is...

THE LAND COVENANT

by Moshe Gold For some Bible believers the establishment of modern Israel is attributed solely to human political endeavor unrelated to God’s promise of land for His chosen people. They link the inheritance of the Promised Land with the final ingathering and...

THE DAVIDIC COVENANT

by Jeffrey Berg The great hope of the Jewish people lies in the Davidic Covenant. This great promise God gave to David is based on 2 Samuel 7:8-17 and is confirmed in Psalm 89. The promise of this covenant amplifies the hope for a Messianic kingdom, emanating from...

THE ABRAHAMIC COVENANT

by Mark Robinson      The student of Scripture is confronted with a maze of ideas when trying to understand the Bible. It can be a daunting task to decipher which religious understanding is the correct understanding of Scripture. Fortunately, God has given to the...

THE FOUR POWER BASES OF ANTICHRIST’S RULE

Israel: The Apple of God’s Eye

by Stan Rosenthal The phrase “apple of the eye” refers to the pupil of the eye. It is round, black and located in the center of the eye. The pupil is the opening into the eye that permits light to pass through, which in turn enables us to see. It is one of the...

Is Israel God’s Elect Nation?

CHRISTMAS IN ISRAEL

Psalm 118

By Jeffrey Berg       Psalm 118 is a magnificent illustration of God bringing life from the dead. A “Hallel Psalm,” this psalm of praise is of utmost importance. In Judaism it is read from the Haggadah in the Passover celebration and magnifies the topic of...

Psalm 110

by Rev. Mark Robinson       Of all the Messianic Psalms perhaps none surpasses the glory and magnificence of Psalm 110. This brief psalm of seven verses takes us from the heights of the divine and human nature of the Messianic king, to his ministry as a priest...

Psalm 16: A Basis for Unshakeable Hope

by Stan Rosenthal       Hope is an extremely potent word or concept. Without it, despair tends to make its way to the forefront of one’s life. With it, there is a reason to go forth with optimism. In other words, hope, or lack thereof, plays an integral role in how...

A 1,000 Year Kingdom? Or Not?

by Rev. Mark Robinson       As I sat in the office of the Minister of Evangelism of one of the largest and best known churches in the United States the discussion turned to the Millennium. When asked what he believed he responded, “I am a pro-pan-mill.” Initially,...

Israel: The Sign of the Times

by Mark Robinson      The billboard was the most controversial the city center had seen in years, and maybe ever. People had a myriad of opinions on its purpose and message. The message was brief – “It IS Coming!” Some thought it was a hoax. Sure, they recognized...

Israel: God’s Answer to Skeptics?

by Mark Robinson      The nation of Israel and her people the Jews are an enigma to this world. The preservation of the people of Israel is a contradiction of all historical trends. The uniqueness of this people is captured in an essay Mark Twain authored in...

Evidences for the Resurrection

The idea of the Messiah’s resurrection did not begin with the birth of New Testament Christianity; in fact, the Apostle Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 15:2-3, “…how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.” (Emphasis added)

Messiah as the Branch

In considering the person of the Messiah, His work and character are illustrated for us in the names given to Him throughout the Scriptures. The different names of the Messiah paint a beautiful portrait of the promised One of Israel.

Messiah as the Stone

By Jeffrey Berg       I have been very blessed over the years to have the privilege of taking people to Israel on Biblical study tours. When we tour the Western Wall Tunnel of the Temple Mount, we view some very magnificent stones dating back to the time of Herod...

From Synagogue to Savior

What Grace Is This!!!

PSALM 45

JEWISH MISSIONS AND THE GREAT COMMISSION

by Rev. Ken Symes The challenge to the Church today is the implementation of the great commission. The most often quoted passage used to define the Great Commission is Matthew 28:19-20. Dr. H. A. Ironside correctly states that: "The great Commission to evangelize the...

JEWISH MISSIONS AND THE LOCAL CHURCH

JEWISH MISSIONS AND ZIONISM

by Rev. Mark Robinson  "Death to the Jews!!!"  "Kill the traitor!!!"       The vitriolic cries of the mob were a haunting sound in the ears of the journalist. They would have a profound effect on him and the Jewish people which reverberates to this very day.1     ...

THE LAMB AND THE LION

YOM KIPPUR – Judgment and Mercy have kissed

 by Moshe Gold       Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, is the most sacred day ordained by God for the Jewish people - a day of fasting, affliction of the soul, sacrifice and prayer (Leviticus 23:27-31).      In the days of the Tabernacle and the Temples the...

THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS

  By Jeffrey Berg       One of the first signs of autumn in the Jewish community is the sound of the shofar, or ram's horn, bellowing through the leaves. When one hears the blast of "Tekiah" and the staccato sound of "Shevarim" from the Shofar,...

The Church and Anti-Semitism

CHANUKAH, THE HISTORICAL BACKGROUND

By Ken Symes           The Old Testament era closed with the writing of the prophet Malachi in about 430 B.C. From Malachi to the advent of Jesus in 4 B.C., there were about four hundred "silent" years where there is little record of God's activities...
