1 Corinthians 1:17-29: Who’s Running This Show?

Preview: Deficient theology leads otherwise good, well-intentioned people to think they need to ‘help’ God by repackaging the Gospel in a way that attracts people. Entertaining, stylized, shallow services instead of substance Trying to ‘fit-in’ with culture (‘hipster’ dress/talk) Latching onto the latest fashionable media-driven issue It’s not only inauthentic, but it trivializes Yeshua’s death! Introduction: This morning, let’s think

Balak

This week’s parasha is entitled Balak, the name of the king of Moab, and spans Numbers 22:2 – 25:9. Most of us know the story of Balaam, and just about every kid who’s ever sat in a Sunday School class remembers about Balaam’s donkey talking to him. But I submit to you that Balak and Balaam are archetypes – symbols

Hebrews 3:1-13 – Meet the Architect

Many of you have met our two dogs, Ranger and Scout, who we got from the local animal shelter back in 2011. They’re great dogs, and very easy going when we have company. Now at the time we were looking into animal adoption (and I’m an advocate for adopting rather than buying purebreds) you know what I found out? There

2 Samuel 15:1-16:14

Rabbi Glenn continued the study with a very important lesson this week. He talked about the many parallels to be found in this narrative between King David and King Messiah Yeshua, and the all-important issue of our loyalty to Him.

Vayakhel-Pekudei – “And He Assembled”-“Amount/Number”

The parashas this Shabbat are Vayakhel, meaning And He Assembled and Pekudei, meaning amount or number, and concludes the book of Exodus. We again meet Bezalel and Oholiab and those working with them to skillfully and lovingly craft the articles for the Mishkan. This is a bittersweet passage. Bitter, because it comes right after the golden calf tragedy. In Moses’

Ki Tisa – “When You Take”

Our parasha this Shabbat is Ki Tisa, meaning “When you take or carry out (as in the taking of a census)” and covers Exodus chapters 30 through 34. Included in these chapters is the command to sanctify with sacred oil the Tent of Meeting and everything and everyone associated with it. I’d like us to consider for a few moments

Mishpatim – “Judgments”

This week’s parasha is entitled Mishpatim, which is translated “Statutes” or “Judgments” and covers Exodus chapters 21 through 24. This section of the Torah contains extensive case law; fines and/or punishments for a broad spectrum of offenses having mostly to do with personal injury and property. Everything in this parasha demonstrates that, as beings created in the image of God,

2 Corinthians 12:1-21: Paul Continues To Defend His Ministry

There’s a saying, the origin of which I’m unsure, but I like it. I’ll paraphrase it: There’s no need to explain yourself; your friends don’t need an explanation, and your enemies won’t accept an explanation. The problem is, life isn’t quite that simple. We don’t live in a static world. Sometimes people who were friendly to you at one time

2 Samuel 2 and 3

This week the study reviewed the end of 1 Samuel and the military defeat of Israel at the hands of the Philistines.  It also covered Saul's death, and how David responded to the news.  This week it covered the rest of 2 Samuel 2 and all of 2 Samuel 3.

Bo – “Go!”

The parasha this Shabbat is titled Bo, meaning “Go!” and takes us from Exodus 10 through most of chapter 13. We have already witnessed the depths of this pharaoh’s cruelty. His efforts at Jewish infanticide, and the ongoing and even intensified enslavement of our people. Adonai saw these things, heard the cries of our people, and remembered the covenant He
