One of the halachic principles which distinguished the Essenes from the Pharisees (whom the Essenes termed “Wall Builders”) was a principle the Essenes called “Yesod HaB’riah” (The Principle/Foundation of Creation).
The Pharisees were divided on the issue of divorce. The House of Shammai allowed
divorce only in the case of an “unclean matter” while the House of Hillel allowed divorce
even if the wife only spoiled a dish, and Akiva stretched this to allow a man to… Continue

The Body of Messiah is being attacked by Mar Sheol (the Lord of the Pit). I love YHWH with all my heart. I will feed his sheep and I will act to protect His sheep. I will not stand by and allow wolves to destroy the flock. I refuse to stand by and watch the Lord of the Pit transform this last days restoration of the Sect of the Nazarenes into a bizarre polygamist cult.
It is good to know that so many of you are standing by us in this matter.

I am anti "Christ"
At least I am if by "Christ" you refer to the Christian version of
"Jesus" who came to "free you from the bondage of the Law". This
Torah-less "Jesus" is not my Messiah, Yeshua, the Word made flesh, the
living Torah, is my Messiah.
Many have asked "Why have the Jews rejected Jesus?"… well let me make
this clear, the only "Jesus" that most Jewish people have ever been
exposed to is the "Jesus" that supposedly came to "free them… Continue

In this movement we often deal with the question “Is the Torah for today?”. Ironically those that teach the Torah has been done away with encourage their audience to tithe, on the other hand, those that maintain that the Torah is for today, often teach that the tithe is not for today!
Many in the Torah Observant movement have been taught that the tithe only coes to Levites, or only goes to the Temple and is only on agricultural produce of the land of Israel. As a result, Torah… Continue

Over the last week we have been flooded with emails, many from persons who had, until now, studied under the teaching ministry of Moshe K. . The common denominator of these emails is that they were all shocked and dismayed by Moshe K. recent actions and teaching. Just this last week, Moshe K. sent out an email soliciting single women to match into polygamous marriages. And all of this is being done in the names of “Messianic” and “Nazarene”.
Some of those who… Continue

The Apocrypha Unveiled
There are thirty nine books about which Jews and Christians agree form the text of the Tanak. There are also thirteen books about which they do not universally agree as to whether they should be in the canon of the Tanak or not. These books are known as the “Apocrypha”.
The “Apocrypha” are a group of books which seem to have been part of the canon of the earliest “Christians” but which were not adopted by Rabbinic Judaism into the Masoretic Text, and… Continue

One Faith, Two Expression Theology
(an excerpt from my book Nazarene Theology
The Systematic theology of the "One Faith Two Expression" theology or "Two Torah" Theology is the theology of much of Messianic Judaism including the majority of the IAMCS and the UMJC.
Two Torah Theology maintains that the "Church" or "Body of Messiah" is made up of two two groups who are united together in one body. The two Groups are Messianic… Continue

There is an old Jewish story of a couple about to be married. They
lived in a small village and had invited everyone from the village to
their wedding. Each guest was asked to bring a jug of wine for the
celebration. Each jug of wine would be poured into a giant vat to be
shared by everyone. As the wedding day approached, each member of the
village thought, "If I do not bring my jug of wine, it will not be
missed among so many other jugs."
The wedding… Continue

Saturday v.s. Sunday
Written By Trecek
Sunday observers believe that the seventh day Sabbath was changed to Sunday in the NT. And, some believe that the entire law within the OT was nailed to the cross. Is this true?
JOHN DOE WROTE:
Some false teachers are those who do old testament sabbaths and feasts and stuff. Galatians 3;24 says "Wherefore the Law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.Verse 25; But after that… Continue

Rabbi Trimm, could you share your ideas regarding Marshell Konuichowsky's teaching in Whole Wheat Unleaven Bread. Where as I do not perceive your words on the same perspective in this as Marshell does by teaching Yeshua could not walk with us in flesh because 'yetzar ra' would be physical aspect. I believe it is not physical but spiritual. Yetzar (inclination) is set in the womb at needing its basic needs, so, as the child grows it is given chance to choose, but base animal desires are what the… Continue

Christian? From where it has come?
Bro. Isaac E. Kusuma., www.aotle-india.org E-mail: email@example.com
There is no use of Christian in the entire New Testament except in three places. But if you go through the Sacred Name Bibles, you can get itâ€™s real meaning and why that word was used. It was used by Romans in a derogatory sense.
No where in Apostles Shaulâ€™s letters or any other letter written by apostles were addressed by Christians but saints and brethren… Continue
