Jude – Ain’t Nothin’ New Under the Sun

Verses 1-2 (author/recipients – note three-fold formula of greeting) Jude, a servant of Messiah Yeshua and a brother of James, to those who have been called, who are loved by God the Father and kept by Messiah Yeshua: mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance. Almost certainly, this is Yehuda or Judas, Yeshua’s earthly half-brother, since he calls himself

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 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 Corinthians 1:12–2:17 – It’s All Good

Being in spiritual leadership is such an easy gig. It’s the little things; like how everyone respects your advice, and nobody causes problems. Nobody questions your motives or takes issue with your decisions; nor do people compare you with other preachers. Criticisms are few, always presented in love and gentleness, and never behind your back. Just ask Moses… or the

1 Corinthians 14:26-40 – Order In His Court!

Introduction: This morning we are continuing in our study of Rabbi Paul’s first letter to the believers in Corinth. The Corinthian church was in all kinds of disarray, and reading through the letter sometimes feels like having to have a tooth extracted. It seems long and drawn out, and painful. But these things were written as much for our benefit

1 Corinthians 12 – Nitroglycerin in the Hands of Toddlers

Introduction If ever there was a chapter of the Bible that was frequently misunderstood, and that misunderstanding led to contention in Messiah’s Community, I’d say 1 Corinthians 12 is it. This chapter outlines the gifts of the Holy Spirit; misinterpreted and/or misapplied, it’s like theological nitroglycerine. Handle with care! Considering how much division there is about the gifts of the

1 Corinthians 6:1-11 – I’ll See You in Court!

(or: how to completely destroy your credibility) Don’t you just love it when you hear a Christian (usually one with a pride issue) claim that there aren’t any good churches and say something like, “I want to be part of an authentic ‘New Testament’ church.” My response is, “Oh really? Like, say, the Church at Corinth (not exactly a sterling

Romans 4:1-12 – Abraham The Archetype

This morning we’re continuing our study of the amazing letter of Rabbi Paul, written to the believers at Rome. Last Shabbat Jerry completed chapter three. Therefore, this morning we’ll begin at chapter four. Now, it’s important to remember that the chapter and verse divisions in our Bibles weren’t there when these books and letters were written. The chapter breaks as

Romans 3:1-18 – Objection: Overruled!

I had jury duty this week. The timing of it was awful; so many other things were happening, and Rabbi Loren was out of town. What transpires in a courtroom is both fascinating and tedious, and even at times troubling; particularly when witnesses take the stand, swear an oath to tell the truth, and then lie through their teeth. An

Romans 2:17-29 – The One Who Gives Thanks

The word Yehudi (“Jew”) means “one who gives thanks. Because we’re in a passage in Romans addressed to Jewish people, I thought I would share that fact with you. And here are a few salient truths that will emerge from the passage we are reading this morning. Being born Jewish is no guarantee of going to Heaven. Jewish people need

My Master’s Instruction: Sermon On The Mount Part 6

Across history, various rabbis have been known for their particular teaching, notable perhaps for emphasis on a particular aspect of Torah or focus on a specific attribute God’s nature or a unique interpretation on an historical event. Disciples are supposed to be able to articulate their rabbi’s particular teaching. More than that their lives are supposed to reflect that teaching.

2 Chronicles 27 – Jotham

2 Chronicles 27 – Jotham Jotham = “Adonai is perfect/flawless/complete” (abbr. Yah + tamim) Verses 1-2 Jotham was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Jerushah the daughter of Zadok. He did right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his father Uzziah had done;

Proverbs 10 With Rabbi Loren Jacobs And Rabbi Glenn Harris

We are going to do something different this morning. Rabbi Glenn and Rebbetzin Alexandra, Rebbetzin Martha and I are going to discuss Proverbs 10 together. Proverbs 10 starts one of the main sections of the Book of Proverbs. We are doing this because come into this world lacking knowledge and lacking wisdom. Proverbs is designed to help us acquire knowledge

Philippians 3:12-21 One Thing I Do

This wonderful letter was written toward the end of the life of one of the greatest men who ever lived. Paul of Tarsus was intelligent, courageous, intense, devoted, zealous. He was a rabbi. He was a scholar and a theologian and an expert in Judaism. He was a Pharisee, which means he was very serious about practicing Judaism. He was
