Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg
Eli writes, "In an early interaction, God told Moses that He will send his angel to guide Israel along the way. The people of Israel were warned not to disobey God’s messenger, because he would not forgive their transgressions. (Ex. 23:21)"
Eli writes, "One of the most important words in the New Testament is εὐαγγέλιον (euangelion). It is usually translated as “the Gospel”. Its literal translation is simple..."
Eli writes, "If we take the time to compare the original verse Jesus was reciting from Hebrew, a simple, but significant insight into the words of Jesus on the cross will emerge."
Eli writes, "Paul’s solution, therefore, was not to exclude half of the congregation from exercising the gifts of the Spirit, but rather to make sure that it was done in a respectful, proper and orderly fashion."
Eli writes, "Circumcision was and remains one of the most important markers of Jewish identity. It testifies both to Israel’s trust in God regarding its future and to God’s promise justifying that trust."
Eli writes, "But how did this practice begin? In other words, based on what did they conduct this communal lifestyle in Christ Jesus? The Torah, with all its care for the poor and needy (Lev.23:22), does not ever talk about shared property."
Eli writes, "On one occasion Jesus made a curious promise to his disciples. He said: “I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Comforter” (John 14:16). This implies, of course, that he himself was the first Comforter. But why did he phrase it this way?"
Eli writes, "This text is most often read as an instance of Yeshua’s general lack of clarity on the topic. However, the request should not be read..."
Eli writes, "To put it simply, it was implicit in the committee’s questioning that John had no authority to carry out this mass Israelite water ceremony."
Eli writes,"On one occasion Jesus gave orders to Peter and John to prepare for the Passover ahead of the disciples’ arrival: 'Enter a city, then look for a man carrying a jar of water. Follow him and ask the person in charge to offer hospitality.' This is exactly what happened."
