Colossians 1-2 – Focus On Messiah!

This morning I want to talk about Christianity, specifically the essence of Christianity. It might seem simplistic, but the essence of Christianity is Christ. The essence of Messianic Judaism is Messiah. I say this because there are those who take the focus off of Yeshua and redirect it to other things.

Is Yeshua Enough?

Every day it seems we are seeing new “enlightened discoveries” on who God is and how those who follow Him alone should act and think.  There are numerous books, programs, and talking heads that will give praise to Yeshua but then add their own personal interpretation and additions for how we must conduct ourselves.  For some it is adding books

Colossians 3:1-17

Lowered To Die To The Old Nature; Risen To Live According To The New Nature Because of the Fall of Man; because humanity joined the rebellion of the fallen angels, human beings have been terribly damaged. Our nature is twisted. Our thinking about the most important truths is confused. Our character is bad. Our values are wrong. If we are

Colossians 2:1-23 Part 2

The Colossian Community was a good, solid community of Messianic Jews and Gentile Christians, but they were being challenged by false teachings. They included Jewish legalism, Greek philosophy, a false kind of mysticism and asceticism. To combat these errors, Paul and Timothy focused the attention of Messiah’s Community in Colossae on Messiah. Why? Why is Yeshua so important that we

Charles Ryrie inform us: "Specifics include dietary and Sabbath observances, circumcision rites, the worship of angels and the practice of asceticism.

Colossians 1:12-20

Transferred To Another Kingdom; Who Yeshua Is; The Centrality Of Messiah Besides being a great scholar, theologian and one of the greatest evangelists and congregation starters of all time, Paul was an apostle - a special representative of the Son of God.
