Along with the ‘Messiah (Christ) Confirmed…‘ and the ‘Gospel and The Torah‘ categories, here are some answers to Judaism. Hoping they are fruitful with you.
This explanation of Holy Scripture shares how what might be known as the ‘Christian baptism’ is actually as per Torah Law (the Law of Moses), and not adding to it in any way when Holy Scripture is read in correct context.Keep reading
How Habakkuk 2:19 And Ezekiel 28:15 Show Isaiah 28:16’s ‘…precious cornerstone…’ Is The Messiah (Christ), And Not The Torah.
This explanation of Holy Scripture aims to show how the precious ‘cornerstone’ that Isaiah 28:16 tells us to believe in for everlasting life without end at resurrection (Isaiah 28:16, 28:18), is the created Lord Jesus Christ (Adonai Yehoshua HaMoshiach) (Ephesians 2:20).
This is done by showing how Habakkuk 2:19 speaks of the devil (satan/Lucifer/Jezebel ref. Isaiah 14:12 KJV, Revelation 2:20, 2:22) as a ‘lifeless/mute stone’ (Habakkuk 2:19 ESV/NIV), after his ‘burial’ (Isaiah 14:20) in the lake that burns with fire forever and ever (ref. Revelation 20:10).
This explanation is relevant, as a popular rebuttal to the interpretation of Isaiah 28:16-22 is that it is speaking of the Torah as what is to be believed in.
Whilst a believer is to uphold the Torah (the Law of Moses ref. Romans 3:31 ESV, Psalm 119:160), this explanation will show Isaiah 28:16-22 to be speaking specifically of the created Christ (Messiah) instead on this occasion, and is therefore useful in confirming his identity from the fuller scope of Holy Scripture.Keep reading
The Tanakh (Old Testament) Never Really Intended The Messiah (Christ) To Have A Typical, ‘Traditional’ Birth (Psalm 110:1, Matthew 22:42-46)
This explanation is another proof which shows that the Messiah is Christ.
This is achieved by sharing Psalm 110:1 and how it actually tells us that the Messiah would not have a typical, ‘traditional’ birth – as Matthew 22:42-46 explains by way of riddle.
Instead king David calls Messiah (Christ) his lord, a title which a parent does not address his child by.
This all demonstrates that the link in the prophets and writings between kind David and Messiah is of a spiritual nature and presented poetically.
This explanation is extracted from the larger article entitled ‘Proving The Messiah (Jesus) Is King David’s Descendant – From The Torah (Definitive)‘.Keep reading
The name of the Messiah (Christ) – the created, righteous Son of G-d, has appeared in and has reportadly been translated back and forth through several languages – such as Hebrew, Greek, Latin, and back to Greek.
This explanation shares the variants, language rescource(s) and even variants to the names of other men that appear in the Bible.Keep reading
Here we will see that lighting a fire on the Sabbath is a forbidden activity, and with this the scribes and Pharisees explain that starting a car engine is also listed as a forbidden activity on the Sabbath as it involves sparks, the ignition and burning of fuel – even the boiling of water.
Solutions are peaceably submitted, along with Scripture references.Keep reading
The Old Testament spoke of newness which could be had by believing the New – by believing in Messiah (Christ) who was given [as high priest in the order of Melchizadek (Psalm 110:4, 45:7)] for the [mediating (1 Timothy 2:5)] of the New covenant (Isaiah 42:6, 49:8, 2 Corinthians 5:17).
This article simply aims to list some of the blessings which are found in the New Covenant – one of the major blessings being everlasting life without end at resurrection.Keep reading
A stumbling block with some, is the thought that ‘because Jesus has no biological human father, he therefore cannot be a descendant of king David and king Solomon – as the Scriptures say G-d instead performed a miracle, and Mary became pregnant.’
Here, how King Jesus (Yehoshua/Yeshua) is to be counted as a descendant through both king David and king Solomon, is shared.
What we will find is that despite both of the human parents of the Messiah (Christ) both coming through king David, and one also through king Solomon – the books of the Prophets and the Writings are consistently poetic, figurative, and spiritual in nature, therefore they must be interpreted accordingly;
The non-biological human father of the Messiah (Christ), is therefore the key marker to identifying the Messiah (Christ)- along with the marital link between both parents (Joseph and Mary).
With King Yehoshua (Jesus) having been physically born of Mary; Christ is inturn deemed a Jew.
With Christ (Messiah) being Joseph’s son by way of his mother and he marrying; this is where the poetic and figurative link to the prophets and the writings that speak of Messiah is made.Keep reading
The aim of this explanation is to share how the Jewish New Year takes place on Rosh Hashanah (The Feast of Trumpets – ref. Leviticus 23:24).
Some statutes with regard to observing Rosh Hashanah will also be touched upon.
Rosh Hashanah takes place on the first day of the seventh month (Tishrei) on the Hebrew calandar – and all this is despite Nisan (Abib) being described as the first month of the year in Exodus 12:2;
This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.
Exodus 12:2 KJV
Essentially, Tishrei (the seventh month) serves as the first (beginning) month of the year.
Nisan serves as the first month that the months of the year are listed in.
Nisan is thus likened to a shopping list, where the first item (Nisan) appears at the top, and the rest of the months follow.
The seventh item (month) on the list, Tishrei, is however regarded as the beginning of the Jewish New Year – despite its position.Keep reading
Messiah As Priest, No World Peace Here, Messiah Rules From Above, Levite Priests?
Here a neat table of contents is addressed, and various topics addressed – which ideally allow for better understanding and grasp.
■ The Priesthood Of Melchizadek Is Recognized By God:
■ Messiah (Christ) Was Sent Here To Become A Priest In The Order Of Melchizadek.
■ What Does This Then Mean For The Levitical Priesthood – Is It Abolished And No More?
■ What is The Need Of A High Priest In The Order Of Melchizadek?
■ No Holy ‘World Peace’ Here Amongst Men, Rather It Is Between The Holy God and Mankind:
■ Messiah Rules From Above, Right Now In The New Heaven And Earth
Here, Hebrews 7:27 is explained in it’s correct context to show how it does not speak of human sacrifice (e.g. the crucifixion and ressurection), as human sacrifice is forbidden by the Holy G-d.
The actual meaning of the verse is that it speaks of how he (Christ) ‘offered up himself’ with regard to willingly laying down his life in order to fulfil Scripture.Keep reading
The aim of this explanation of Holy Scripture is to peaceably share how in no place does it, or any other Scripture allow for human sacrifice – rather, the verse uses the word ‘ransom’ in a unique way, as the Law of Moses and the rest of Holy Scripture forbids human sacrifice (Deuteronomy 24:16, Jeremiah 31:30, Ezekiel 18:20 etc.).
Instead, when the verse says ‘ransom’, it speaks of the Messiah’s (Christ’s) personal walk and obedience until death – to fulfil prophecy spoken of himself, and be declared High Priest in the order of Melchizadek forever to then intercede for the sins of many (Psalm 110:4, 45:7, Isaiah 53:11-12).Keep reading
How Christ Prays, And Is Not A Literal Human Sacrifice For Sin – (Verse explanations; Hebrews 9:26, 9:23, 10:5, 10:9, 10:12, 10:14, Isaiah 53:12)
The aim of this explanation is to further interpret verses which speak of either Christ’s death and ressurection, or his blood – as they are; poetic and meorphical in a certain way, especially if they read along the lines of ‘sacrifice’ or ‘makes us clean’.Keep reading
This explanation of Holy Scripture further demonstrates the connection between Christ in the Psalm where it says he ‘…you love righteousness and hate wickedness…’, and how he was then ‘annointed’ as high ‘…priest forever in the order of Melchizadek…’ – after being raised from the dead (ref. Psalm 45:7, 110:4, Hebrews 5:10).Keep reading
Sharing how Genesis 22 and Isaiah 53 are interlinked and speak of Christ as the Messiah who would die, and be raised from the dead.Keep reading
1 John 2:1-2: ‘…propitiation for our sins…’ – Christ Makes Intercession, And Is Not A Human Sacrifice (Explained)
This explanation aims to show how God’s good commandments forbid human sacrifices (ref. Deuteronomy 24:16, Ezekiel 18:20), and thus 1 John 2:1-2 (or any other similar verse for that matter) is in no way saying that Christ (Messiah) was a literal human sacrifice for our sins.
Instead, with verse 1 first telling us that Christ is our ‘advocate’, the word typically translated as ‘propitiation’ in 1 John 2:2 is then reviewed.
We see that the English dictionary’s definition for ‘propitiation’ can be defined as ‘appeasing’, and in phrase form can be described as how ‘Christ lifts his hands in prayer to God as our representation in a propitiation-like, priestly manner, to please Him on our behalf.’.
We will see that this is the better rendering and translation of what the word ‘propitiation’ means in this instance, as other verses confirm Christ appeases G-d, by praying (interceding) for us here (Isaiah 53:12, Romans 8:34), as advocate and mediator (1 John 2:1, 1 Timothy 2:5).Keep reading
Here, Isaiah 53:10 is explained in it’s entirety showing exactly where Holy Scripture actually prophesied the death and resurrection of Christ (Messiah).
When it says ‘He will prolong his days…’, this is speaking of when ‘G-d raised His son (Christ) from the dead.’Keep reading
Sharing how to explain the riddle of Isaiah 49:3 and 49:5, and how this is a key to confirming the suffering ‘righteous servant’ of Isaiah 53 is one man, the created, risen, Lord Jesus Christ (Adonai Yehoshua the Messiah), and not a nation.Keep reading
This simple explanation of Holy Scripture is submitted civilly and out of love.
It aims to show how Scripture states that G-d is not a man or a son of man, and thus how King Jesus (Yehoshua) cannot be G-d as he is known as both a man and the son of man, who G-d created.
John 1:1 is thus explained contextually.Keep reading
Showing how Matthew 27:46 indeed references the beginning of Psalm 22:1
‘…”My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”…’
(Psalm 22:1 NIV)
– however the recitation of the Psalm stops there, and the actual context of what is being communicated is found in Isaiah 49:4
‘…“I have labored in vain;… yet surely my right is with the LORD, and my recompense with my God.”’
(Isaiah 49:4 ESV)
– As only part of the people believed, Isaiah says ‘…laboured in vain…’ (ESV), and this communicates how Christ yearns for all people to be saved, and not just some – much like His Father’s will (1 Timothy 2:3-4, 2 Peter 3:9).
Isaiah also shows us how Christ (Messiah) also looked forward to being at the right hand of G-d above, again.Keep reading
