Salvation From Both a Jewish and Christian Perspective- Part 3

So far in this series, we have looked at the meaning of salvation, the Jewish expectations of the Messiah, and why Yeshua ha Maschiach (Jesus Christ) was and has been rejected by “mainstream” Judaism since his first appearance on earth. Today we will delve into the Christian expectations of the Messiah, who is usually referred to…

Why Do Bad Things Happen?

In light of Hurricane Irma, with Hurricane (or should I say, Him-icane) Jose building up power just off the Eastern Seaboard, people are again asking that age-old question: “If God is a loving, compassionate and protective Father, why does He let these terrible things happen to people?” The answer is, actually, very simple…just because God…

Tradition or Torah?

The majority of the Christian world knows the Torah saves the Jews and the Blood of Christ saves the Christians. These two are as separate…

Parashah Shemini (on the eighth day) Leviticus 9 – 11

This parashah starts with Aaron, who has been undergoing sanctification for the office of Cohen HaGadol for the past 8 days, beginning his duties as High Priest. Also his two oldest sons, Nadab and Abihu, were to start assisting him. The problem is that the boys had been drinking (implied by what is commanded in…
