Life before death

"The eternal life that Yeshua spoke of was not something to be looked for only in the future, it was something to be entered into immediately."

Afraid of the dark?

"Ever been afraid of the dark? It’s natural to be afraid of what we cannot see, but the shadows flee when exposed to the light."

Left outside the kingdom

"Not everyone who claims Yeshua as "Lord" will enter the kingdom of heaven. Not even miracles in his name will guarantee admission."

Wolf in sheep’s clothing

"The chief criterion by which the false prophet may be recognized is not necessarily theological or miraculous. Yeshua told His disciples to watch the fruit of their lives."

The narrow path

"Are there just a few who are being saved? According to the teaching of Yeshua, most people are not on the path to the kingdom."

Scorned and ridiculed

"Why did the people passing beneath the shadow of Golgotha cast insults at the man hanging above them?"

Let my people go

"The exodus from Egypt is the Bible's paradigm for salvation—the Torah's clearest picture of what salvation is and how it works."

Golden rule vs. the Torah

How does the Golden Rule to do unto others as you would have them do unto you summarize the whole Torah?

Ask, seek, and knock

"When we pray, is God really listening? According to Yeshua, a person should talk to God like a child speaking to his or her father."

Dogs, pigs, and holy pearls

"The Master told His disciples not to give what is “holy” to dogs. In this context, “what is holy” refers to the sacrifices offered in the Temple."
