Naso – Set Apart: For Disgrace and for Honor

We’re doing something a little different today. I’ve expanded the parasha to be our main message this Shabbat. There is a theme woven throughout this section of the Torah, and I felt it deserved our deeper consideration. First, I’ll give an overview of the parasha, then we’ll address that underlying theme, and draw some applications. But I’ll begin with a

Bamidbar – “In The Desert”

The parasha for last week is entitled Bamidbar, meaning “In The Desert,” and it covers Numbers 1:1 - 4:20.

And, this name comes from the two census’ that were taken of Israel in the wilderness.

Shavuot 2019 – What Will You Choose?

Shabbat Shalom, today we celebrate the holiday of Shavuot. Shavuot is a biblical Jewish holiday that doesn’t get as much attention in modern times as other days like Yom Kippur or Passover, but it is very important. Shavuot was a holiday that was required to be attended when the Temple still stood. Shavuot means the “Feast of Weeks,” and is

Acrs 2 – Messiah’s Earliest Community – Our Role Model

When was Messiah’s Community at its best? When it first became the religion of the Roman empire? At the beginning of the Protestant Reformation? Today? My answer: Messiah’s Community was it its best when it first started. This morning, let’s consider Acts 2, which describes what Messiah’s Community was like at its beginning. Let’s learn from the Lord’s first followers

To Whom Anything is Given, Something Will be Required

I think most of us are familiar with Yeshua’s words in Luke chapter twelve: “From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked” (Luke 12:48). Well, to whom anything is given, something will be required! Our dear brother of blessed memory, Jhan Moskowitz,

Shemini – “The Eighth”

Passover is approaching, and once again we will recite The Hallel. Of the psalms that make up The Hallel, I’ve really come to enjoy Psalm 114. The parting of the Red Sea, the encounter with God at Mt. Sinai, and the crossing of the Jordan are described pictorially, and almost humorously; “the mountains skipped like rams, the hills like lambs.”
