Did you know that there are ambiguous passages in the Bible? There are several passages that are not one hundred percent clear. So what do we do with these passages?

I was in a conversation with someone who eventually admitted the reason he won't keep Sabbath is because his flesh likes something else. I also briefly touch on the history of the writtings of the Early Catholic Church Fathers or Early Church Fathers as protestants prefer to call them.

The name Jesus does not have anything at all to do with Zeus. Zeus in Greek is actually Dios. Jesus is just a poorly transliterated/copied/re-copied version of the Aramaic name Yeshua, which means YHVH’s Salvation. If the Apostles intended to say ‘hail Zeus’ they would have written ‘kataigismos Dios’ or ‘chalazi Dios’ and not Iesous.
Every year discussions, questions, and disagreements alike take place over the chronology of the crucifixion week and the question; did Yeshua and the disciples celebrate the Passover Seder. We hope this broadcast will be helpful in clarifying those questions and encourage positive discussion. We also have a chart attachment available with this week’s broadcast showing our interpretation of the chronology (click on the Download Transcript button on the right side of the website player). Chag same'ach (wishing you a joyous festival).
Have you ever been told that basically everything you say and do is pagan or wrong. Some people really struggle with these teachings. There really are pagan influences in the society around us, that is true. And it is something to be careful about. However; some shady teachers out there use these things to enslave the brethren. This is becoming all too common and it can be both spiritually and emotionally damaging. We need to check out these teachings for ourselves to know which ones are accurate and which ones are false.
On this week’s podcast: comments on Parshah Nasso, the counting of the Levites, the laws of the Nazarite, unfaithfulness, the priestly blessing. Other discussion: can we trust our conscience, can we take a Nazarite vow today, was Yeshua a Nazarite, was Paul (Shaul) a Nazarite, can we still make a sacrifice or what should we give as a substitute for sacrifice, we are called to be a kingdom of priests.
Why do so many people feel a draw toward some form of community? Whether that means joining a fellowship, or some kind of shared farm; many people feel a desire toward community on some level. Our community can give us a sense of identity and a sense of belonging. Community can give purpose and direction in our faith walk with our creator.
