Biblical Teachings

Teaching articles written by Israeli believers in Yeshua on a variety of bible-related subjects.

Counting down the ‘Omer’ to Shavuot / Pentecost

David writes, "Forty days later, just before Yeshua returned to Heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father, He instructed His disciple to remain in Jerusalem until they were filled with the Holy Spirit."

Messiah walks on water

"Why did Jesus walk on water? Why did he send his disciples to the other side of the Sea of Galilee, while staying on the opposite bank until nightfall? He could have instructed his disciples to wait until he had sent home the crowd, and then sailed together with them."

Secret prophecy of the name of Yeshua

Asher writes, "Sometimes we are asked by fellow Israelis, 'If Yeshua is the Messiah, why is there no prophecy of that being his name in the Tanakh?'"

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."

Who is Yeshua?

Howard writes, "Yeshua began to teach the apostles the truth about what it meant that He was Messiah. In Jewish teaching and expectation at that time, there were those who thought that the Messiah would come as a conquering King, the son of David."

Are you paying attention?

If you ever come to Israel and find yourself in Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv, you will most likely hear the call “Simu lev!” which means, “Pay attention!” at the beginning of some important announcement. But if we were to translate the words more literally into English, they are saying to you, “Put your hearts!”

Thoughts on Parashat Emor

Michael writes, "The regulations and requirements are not just to set the kohanim apart, but to insure that all of Israel is holy and set apart to fulfill the LORD’s desire for Bnei Yisrael..."

Commentary on Parashat Emor (Say)

Moran writes, "When we read these verses within the context of the chapters preceding them, we can understand that the foundation of these appointed times is God’s holiness."

Do all religions lead to God?

Eitan writes, "Isn’t it prideful of us to claim that there is only one way to God? Don’t all paths lead to Him?"

It’s those “other things” that matter

"When a cucumber seed is planted in the soil, what does one expect to come up from the ground? A tomato? Of course not! It is logical to expect to receive the correct return from what was planted."
