He who receives you

"Yeshua sent out pairs of his disciples on a mission to proclaim the good news of the kingdom. On entering a village, the two disciples were to seek out a worthy man who would offer them lodging and hospitality."

The workman’s hire

"Should teachers of the gospel be paid for their teaching, or should they teach without compensation?"

Miraculous signs

"Yeshua charged His disciples to go out to the villages of Galilee, Judea, and Perea, proclaiming the message, “The kingdom of heaven is at hand.” The time had come for the Twelve disciples to take His message and ministry out on their own."

To the lost sheep of Israel

"Why did Yeshua tell His disciples to avoid Gentiles and preach the Gospel only to Jews?"

The harvest and the workers

"How did the disciples of Yeshua become apostles, and what’s the difference between a diciple and an apostle?"

Secret behind the Messiah’s miracles

"Whenever Yeshua healed someone, He told him to keep the matter secret. Despite the Master’s warnings, the men He healed did not keep the miracles private."

"At the sound of the terrifying voice from heaven, the disciples collapsed face down on the ground—their bodies reflexively prostrating before the Almighty. Each of the three disciples could later recount..."

"The voice that spoke from heaven at the Transfiguration alluded to important Messianic prophecies. Do you know what they are?"

The Cloud of Glory and the Transfiguration

"In the Torah, the cloud of glory conceals the Shechinah, the Dwelling Presence of the LORD. The same cloud lead Israel in the wilderness, descended on Mount Sinai, and settled upon the Tabernacle."

Three Sukkot on Mount Transfiguration

"While the Master prayed through the long hours of the night, Simon Peter, James, and John could not fight off sleep. Their eyes were very heavy. As they would later do in Gethsemane, they fell asleep while Yeshua prayed. They slept, unaware of His transfiguration and the presence of Moses and Elijah until they awoke."
