ARTICLES “A” THROUGH “G”

A PARATROOPER’S STORY

I wrote A Paratrooper’s Story on June 8th, 1967 as I lay wounded in Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem, waiting for surgery to remove a small piece of copper shrapnel in my head from the battle for the liberation of Jerusalem.  Far more than my wound preoccupied me, I was overwhelmed by my encounter the day before with the Kotel.

A TWO COVENANT THEOLOGY

According to the writers of the Babylonian Talmud, the Torah was only for Israel and the Laws of Noah were given to the Gentiles.

A YEAR THROUGH THE TORAH

Centuries before Yeshua walked the earth, Ezra the Scribe divided the first five books of the Bible, the Torah, into 54 portions so that in the course of a year the entire scroll would be recited during services. This practice is still observed around the world today.

AND HE APPEARED

This week’s Torah portion Vayera — And He Appeared (B’resheet [Genesis] 18:1-22:24 relates to us, among other things, many of the times God appeared to Avraham. These were miraculous occurrences. God spoke to Avraham. Avraham spoke to God. Avraham had conversation with God and God responded.

CASTING ALL YOUR CARES

We encounter difficult times, financial and emotional hardships, family issues that threaten to destroy us. We read “cast all our cares on the Lord”. It sounds good. It is what the Bible says; however, it is difficult to release that burden if there is wavering confidence or we don’t understand how.

COLUMBUS SECRETLY A JEW?

Everybody knows the story of Columbus, right? He was an Italian explorer from Genoa who set sail in 1492 to enrich the Spanish monarchs with gold and spices from the orient. Not quite. For too long, scholars have ignored Columbus’ grand passion: the quest to liberate Jerusalem from the Muslims.

EPHRAIMITE ERROR – A Short Summary

The Ephraimite Error – A movement alternately known as the “Ephraimite,” “Restoration of Israel,” “Two-Covenant Israel,” or “Two House” movement has recently gained ground in some areas among ardent Christian Zionists …

ETROG MAN

California citrus farmer John Kirkpatrick, a Presbyterian well-versed in Jewish agricultural law, is the only large-scale grower of etrogs in the U.S.

FAITH IN THE WORD OF GOD

We are to pray, seek and ask, and then simply trust that God is at work. We are to believe He is leading us. And whether everything ends up in loss or gain, God has a plan.

FEAST OF FIRSTFRUITS

The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘When  you come into the land which I give to you, and reap its harvest, then you shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits …

FEAST OF UNLEAVENED BREAD

The act of leaving Egypt with unleavened bread has led to one of the most colorful traditions of the Passover season.

GOD IS ALWAYS FAITHFUL

God is always faithful. Many times men are not to be trusted, but God is always trustworthy. He will never fail us. In Tehillim (Psalms) 54 David has no other appeal but to depend upon God’s name. He has discovered that no power is dependable other than God’s strength.

GOD IS MY SALVATION

The song of praise in this chapter is so very fitting for the return of the outcasts of Israel from their long captivity. It can also be applied to the case of the sinner, when he first finds peace and joy in believing.
