Boaz writes, "Notice that the Bible does not say that a woman must glue herself to her husband. That’s not her job. It’s a husband’s job to cling to his wife, not her job to cling to him. How does he practically do that?"
Boaz writes, "A good and happy marriage is a tremendous gift from God. I thank God every day for my wife and my marriage. In a good marriage, a man’s wife brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life."
Boaz writes, "As we sat on the cool, smooth, white Jerusalem stone facing the direction of the Kotel, listening to the chanting of the book of Lamentations, our eyes could see the result of the Prophet Jeremiah's woes."
Boaz writes, "Like Passover, Hanukkah is a time to recall the historical miracles of our faith. It is a time that we set aside to recall the past and relate it to our future."
Boaz writes, "As we continue to press forward toward a more accurate understanding of the Scripture, a more holy life rooted in the commandments of the Torah, and a life of faith informed by our relationship to the Jewish people, we must not forget our responsibility to take the light of Yeshua to the nations."
Boaz writes, "Pauline Rose (1898-1973) was called the “Lady of Mount Zion.” She could also be considered the first lady of twentieth-century Messianic Judaism. She was a pioneer of the Messianic Jewish movement in Israel and abroad, starting the first Messianic Jewish congregation in Jerusalem in the modern era."
Boaz writes, "Living in Jerusalem as a disciple of Yeshua and a practicing Jew, I constantly feel the tension between the Messianic and Orthodox Jewish worlds. Yet that tension was exceptionally sharp as I had to defend my Jewish practice to a fellow believer in Yeshua"
Boaz writes, "As believers, we often suffer from false identities. The reality God has created in us is different from our perception of it. We have new identities in the Messiah, but we often fail to see ourselves rightly."
Boaz writes, "First Fruits of Zion published a small book a number of years ago that captures some of the history of the hatred behind the holocaust, the pain the Nazis inflicted on the Jewish people, and the involvement of the Christian Church (or lack thereof). We published this booklet to encourage active on-going remembrance and repentance."
Boaz writes, "A gift lovingly given, a young man on a tour of Israel, and a terrorist attack all converged together to blend tragedy with hope and provision."
