The Premature Pre-Trib Rapture


By James Scott Trimm

The doctrine of the Pre-Trib Rapture is a late Christian doctrine which is running rampant in Messianic Judaism. This late Christian doctrine did not even emerge in Christendom until the nineteenth century. This late Christian theology has somehow managed to find favor with many of… Continue

Understanding Acts 15

Understanding Acts 15

1. And men came down from Y'hudah and were teaching the brothers,

Unless you are circumcised according to the custom of the Torah, you are not able to have life [eternal].



In Acts 15 we have a halachic issue being settled by the Rosh Beit Din. In order to understand the proceedings of that meeting and its ruling we must know what the issue was that was before it. In this case Paul's position is not… Continue

Sha'ul at Last - A comprehensive look into the John Rambo of our movement

Sha'ul at Last

By Jason Jordan

For many people there are parts of Rabbi Sha’ul’s letters that contain some challenging teachings. When sufficient study is not applied to these grey areas a believer can unconsciously open the door to theological error. Occasionally I encounter some Natsarim who have declared “no confidence” in Sha’ul’s writings as “Yah-breathed” and it is in response to these encounters… Continue

I am working on a special project. To enact this project I will need the help of others.

Prophecy Fulfilled

Prophecy was fulfilled in 1996 by the establishment of the International Nazarene Beit-Din and the Worlwide Nazarene Assembly of Elohim (then known as the Society for the Advancement of Nazarene Judaism).

This year began a call from Judah to Ephraim to “come out of Babylon”.

In a footnote to Isaiah 1:9 the Ryrie Study Bible has the following comment:

"Quoted in Rom. 9:29 with reference to Christian Jews."

Now I do not always agree with Ryrie's… Continue

Did Yochanan Write the Sefer Yetzirah?

The Sefer Yetzirah is an ancient Hebrew document which among the earliest and most significant of Kabbalistic texts. No one knows who the author of the book was, several possibilities have been proposed. One possibility that has occurred to me is that Yochanan the Emissary and Talmid of Yeshua was the author. There are a number of parallels between the Sefer Yetzirah and the book of Revelation:

1. Both books make use of the “seven stars”. Rev. 1:16, 20 refer to “the seven stars”… Continue

Messianic Judaism or Nazarene Judaism: Are they the same?

Some have asked about the relationship between Messianic Judaism and Nazarene Judaism, the following in an excerpt from a teaching given at our first conference NETZARIM '99 in 1999 by Rav Mikhael:

I believe the central issue that we need to address is one of identity. With whom do we identify, or, as I have heard it poignantly stated before, with whom will we be persecuted? Many people who hear of us and what we are doing will identify us with the Messianic Jewish Movement (I… Continue

Messianic Judaism or Nazarene Judaism: What’s in a Name?

Messianic Judaism or Nazarene Judaism: What’s in a Name?

You may be surprised to find out that the original Jewish followers of Yeshua were not

known as “Messianic Jews”. As Daniel Juster admits:

No form of Judaism or Christianity… has used the term

“Messianic Judaism” as its appropriate designation.

(Jewish Roots; 1986 edition, p. viii)

The original followers of Yeshua were a sect of Judaism known as “Nazarenes” (as we read in Acts 24:5 that Paul… Continue

A Brief History of the Modern Restoration of the Ancient Nazarene Sect of Judaism


Although Nazarene Judaism can be classed as “Messianic Judaism” there are certainly some differences between our movement and what is commonly called “Messianic Judaism”.

The “Sacred Name Movement” is a movement of loosely connected groups which began first to grow out of the Church of God Seventh Day and other Sabbatarian groups beginning in the 1920’s. The main factors connecting these “Yahwists” were 7th day Sabbath Keeping; Feast Keeping; refraining from…

Nazarene Israelites Explained

Nazarene Israelites Explained

By Jason Jordan

Who are Nazarene Israelites? This is a fair question. The most alarming thing to reconcile is the reality that they are not Christians. This naturally and understandably causes immediate concern for a Christian. This concern will often cause a conditioned churchgoer to switch off at any subsequent explanation. If you haven't switched off please feel free to read… Continue

Tehillim (Psalms) - The Most Overlooked Book in Scripture / An introduction to an onging series on Psalms

Tehillim (Psalms)

Session 2

Part 2 of a 4 Part Introduction

If the Prophet Moshe gave Israel the five books of the Torah and King David gave Israel the five books of the Psalms, why is the latter virtually absent from the study literature that is emerging among the rebirth of the Natsarim? The answer is because the enemy has kept it partially concealed; knowing that familiarity with it has the potential to bring… Continue

Matthew 18 Process

So often in this movement we hear people speak about the Matthew 18 process, yet so few really understand how this process works.

The process involved is outlined in Matthew 18:15-20 and is suggested by Matt. 18:6f.

The Matthew 18 process is nothing new, it was a restatement and a clarification of the Deut. 19:15 process (as Mt. 18:16 quotes Deut. 19:15). It is a description of how a Beit Din functions.

STEP 1 “And if your brother sins against you, go and… Continue
