Understanding Jewish thought Teaching

 

Understanding My Style of Teaching

The traditional Jewish way of learning is very different to the Western approach.
My teaching very often refers back to the original Hebrew text and to the cultural background in which the text was written.

A good example of this is the Jewish way of embracing both sides of an ‘argument’, if there is valid substance to both. I was trained to do that; it is a lifestyle within Jewish culture.

For example…The early Jewish church had no problem in accepting that Yeshua was both man and God, but, when false doctrines began springing up in the Gentile church, one of the more serious arguments was “Jesus is either a man or God, he can’t be both”

The righteous need foundations

Thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations [Is:58:12] / If the foundations be destroyed what can the righteous do? [Psalm 11:3]

The righteous need foundations. Ever since Martin Luther, YHWH has been restoring truth to the church. Many individuals have made a camp around these revealed truths and haven’t journeyed on into the full calling from glory to glory. Our teachings seek to claim some of this new ground.

A prophetic dream a messianic brother had concerning Mea Sharim

The setting was an underground rocky canyon where the terrain was very inaccessible. (He believes the rocky canyon was Mea Shearim). Winding through this terrain was a narrow path with sharp turns, approximately the width of one person. As anyone would take the sharp turn he would cut himself. But the Lord began sending people on assignments into this (canyon) neighborhood. As they entered they used special machines with which they were cutting the sharp corners and making the paths wider and wider and more accessible.

All the laborers working on these assignments were operating underground, secretly.

We see this dream as a picture of the work before us. We believe we have to be very careful who we involve in this work. And that much prayer is needed as we continue.

Hebrew, the meaning of the Word

In the Old Testament the word “Hebrew” always refers to God’s covenant people as distinguished separate from the other nations

When God speaks directly to Israel  he calls them” the Sons of Israel”, when we are contrasted with any foreign nation or entity we are called “Hebrews” here are two examples

Exodus 1:19 and the midwives said unto Pharaoh, because the Hebrew women are not like the Egyptian woman

Genesis 14:12 and there came one that had escaped, and told Abram the Hebrew; note this is in contrast with 5 foreign kings who took Lot into captivity. (This is the first time the word Hebrew appears in the bible)

The word “Hebrew” עברי   or” Evry “literally means, “Crossed over” as Abraham crossing the Euphrates or the Jordan River to enter Canaan.

How the word “Jew” came into being.

The word Jew is from the word “Judah” as the tribe of Judah.  So originally the word “Judah” referred only to those who were descendants from the tribe of Judah. In contrast someone from the tribe of Dan is called Danite etc.  In 925 BC the kingdom of Israel Split in two half’s. 10 tribes to Israel in the North with Samaria as the main capitol. Jerusalem became the capital of Judah in the South.  A citizen living in the southern kingdom was called a “Jew” because of the dominant tribe Judah.

In 722 BC 10 tribes of Israel were exiled by the Assyrians, and in 587 BC Judah was exiled to Babylon. 70 years Later Judah returned to the Land but not the 10 tribes.  Although there were survivors from all the tribes Judah by far was the most dominant tribe living in the land of Israel so all Israelis regardless of their tribe became known as Jews.

Today we are not all from the tribe of Judah but we are called Jews.
