Audio teaching on Behar / Bechukotai (Leviticus 25:1-27:34)

Share on Facebook

Join with me as we study the last two parashot of the book of Leviticus, parashot Behar / Bechukotai (Leviticus 25:1-27:34). I was invited to speak at a Messianic congregation this past weekend and presented a message of love, redemption, unity and the restoration of the Kingdom I see woven into the text of these two parashot. I pull not only from the text of our Torah portions, but from the Apostolic Scriptures, the Mishnah and Midrash to weave a pattern of restoration that can only come when we take our responsibilities seriously. Join with me as we learn parashot Behar and Bechukotai together.

Historical House of Jesus Found?

Share on Facebook

Archaeologists working in Nazareth (the hometown of Jesus) have identified what they are claiming to be the historical home of Jesus and his family prior to his years of ministry. Out of the two first-century houses that have been discovered in Nazareth, archaeologists are saying this most recent discovery is a serious candidate to be the actual home of Jesus, based on both the archaeological findings and church tradition.

Earliest Fragments of the Gospel of Mark Found?

Share on Facebook

mummy maskI know it’s been a long time since I have posted. I am spending most of my time writing for my teaching ministry, Emet HaTorah. A recent discovery, however, has piqued my interest and I thought it would fit well here.

A recent report has just revealed that what appears to be the oldest extant copy of the Gospel of Mark has been discovered. It appears that it was discovered at least three years ago and both scientists and are working together to publish their findings in the months ahead. Up to this point the entire discovery has been hidden behind sealed lips. However, a little bit of the information has been leaked to the media.

The discovery actually comes from an unexpected location. The gospel fragment was discovered in secondary use as part of an Egyptian burial mask on a mummy of common status. The forthcoming report will reveal more details on its discovery and its contents.  Biblical scholar Craig Evans has been working as part of the team to unravel the mystery behind the text and hopes to publish his findings as soon as the scientific report has been made public. You can read more about the discovery here:
