Yeshua was a recognized Torah scholar by community leaders

Yeshua was not only recognized as a teacher of the Torah by his followers, but by community leaders and others who were not members of his group. But most American Christian readers today do not know the words of the Torah well enough to understand how recognized he was -- they are completely unaware of the most important points he taught. Pastors, priests, ministers, church and denominational leaders, and Bible study teachers that understand those points are urgently needed. Read the complete blog at --

Transforming Belief Conflicts into Relationship Building Opportunities

 The primary challenge facing Christians and Jews -- as well as members of other religions, agnostics and atheists -- is not a lack of information – it is getting new information past barriers created by our brains. Read the complete blog at --

Yeshua on the Afterlife

The defining belief – and “promise” of modern Christian religions -- is the afterlife -- Christians will spend eternity in Heaven with God living lives without problems and physical needs. This is often reinforced in almost every sermon and at funerals. What are the requirements to live eternally? Over the past thousand years two options have dominated Christianity.

How Yeshua Became Jesus

Many people are surprised to discover that Jesus wasn’t his name. How do we know? Well, to begin with there are two basic facts.

1. The word “Jesus” begins with the letter “J” and that letter did not enter the English language until the 16th century CE, over 1,500 years after he lived and taught in Galilee and Judea.

2. The English language first appeared centuries after he lived and taught in Galilee and Judea.

Jesus” is an English word so his name could not be “Jesus.” Now let’s find out what his name was and how it became “Jesus.” Read the complete blog at --

The Essence of Religion

One of the amazing things for me is finding principles and values in the teachings of modern Judaism that the Real Yeshua taught – and that are found in the opening chapters of Genesis. Rabbi Dov Peretz Elkins’ book The Wisdom of Judaism is a treasure chest of those ideas. I have no idea of what Rabbi Elkins thinks about Yeshua, but their teachings share a lot in common.

Yeshua Master Teacher of the Jewish Scriptures

A very important piece of evidence that reveals insights about how Yeshua saw himself and what he intended to do has been lost to modern Bible readers because of 16th theological conflicts between Catholics and Protestants and the poor English translators of his words. Read the complete blog at --

The First Challenge of Understanding What the Real Yeshua Taught

When Christians readers his words today, they often view them in the “artificial and sterile environments” of their “mutually exclusive theologies.” In order to deal with those barriers we must make sure we are aware of some important things that did and didn’t exist when Yeshua lived and taught in first century Judea and Galilee.

Yeshua Thought in Hebrew: Good Eye and Evil Eye???

Two Hebrew idioms are found in Matthew 6:22-23a (New King James translation). The idioms are underlined:

The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. 

Take a minute to let those underlined words sink in. They don’t make any sense to “American thinking” English speakers. Read the complete study and lean what those idioms means --

Did Yeshua Do Away With the Law?

In my Christian denomination the doctrine that Jesus did away with the Law was very important. We made it clear that we were not like “the Jews” who were under the Law. We had “grace” and they didn’t. Read the complete article at --

It’s a Yod -- NOT a Jot and Tittle!

Not only did Yeshua read and speak Hebrew, so did his followers and disciples! Two very well known, but not accurately understood words in the Gospel of Matthew prove it – jot and tittle. For some reason jot and tittle stick in the minds of Christian Bible readers. But when you ask them what jot or tittle mean, you get a lot of conflicting and some really weird answers. Today, you are going to get the facts about what Yeshua originally said and how they ended up in English translations of the Bible as jot and tittle. Read the complete blog at --

Yeshua read and spoke Hebrew at the Synagogue

Yeshua was a very skilled reader and speaker of the Hebrew language. Luke 4:16-17 provides us with important evidence that reveals just how skilled of a reader of Hebrew Yeshua was. See pictures and read the complete blog at --

It is time for Christians to agree on something very important.

We are amazingly good at objecting, disapproving and opposing everyone else’s Christian beliefs, as well as the beliefs of people of other religions and especially people with different political ideas. What if Christians could find a way to agree with other about one of the most important words of all – the name of the one we call “Christ”? Read the complete article at --

How to Enter the Kingdom of Heaven

For most Christians, one of the most important words in their religious vocabulary is “saved.” Their mission is to save as many people as possible. Why? They have been taught that only those who are “saved” will spend eternity in Heaven with God. That was not the focus of Yeshua’s message. His goal was to bring as many people as possible into the Kingdom of Heaven -- while they are alive. He taught that it will only be those that live in the Kingdom of Heaven before death that will ultimately enter eternal life later. We will be learning much more about that in this series of discussions that we call “Yeshua’s Kingdom of Heaven Handbook.” We will reconstructing the teachings of Yeshua so we can understand them more accurately by incorporating new information that we discover as we learn about his language, culture and the time period in which he taught his followers.
