The Jerusalem Council

A Global Association of Orthodox Jewish Disciples of Messiah Yeshua

Yeshua

The Messiah is called HaShem, the Beit El

We have no other King, Savior, or Redeemer than HaShem. If you do not believe this, then you are not Jewish, and an idolater according to the Talmud. The Messiah is the King, Savior, and Redeemer of Israel. If you do not believe this, and are not expecting his coming as such, you have no share in the World to Come, according to the RaMBaM. If you rebel against the Messiah, he will not forgive you, according to the Torah.

What is the Torah?

The word Torah has become increasingly popular in recent years partly due to the Hebrew Roots movement in Christianity and partly due to Kabbalah interest in the Media. Unfortunately overuse of the term has only served to add to the confusion. Part of the problem is that these modern writers can’t make sense of how Jewish writers are using the term.

We thought it would be good to take a moment and thoroughly define what Torah means so it doesn’t become just another buzz word in religious rhetoric. We hear questions all the time: “What is the Torah?” “Where did it come from?” “How does the Torah differ from the Bible?” In the rest of this article we will try to give a good introduction to Torah and how it plays a part in our lives.

Messiah to Come Twice Like Isaac, Joseph, Moses, and David

The Torah, and the rest of the TaNaKh teaches that the Messiah would come twice for Israel, first to be rejected, despised, and killed; and then resurrected and to ascend to Heaven, and then come again to bring Israel to the Promised Land in the Olam Habah (World to Come). We see this when we understand that Messiah Yeshua is like Isaac, Joseph, Moses, and King David.

Do I need to be circumcised?

Yes, it is a sign of the Covenant, in that it is a sign as to Who the Messiah is, in that he does not come by human effort, and that He is the “seed of the woman” prophesied in Genesis 3:15.

Two House Theology is a Distraction

This is a comment on Two House theology, otherwise known as the Ephraimite movement. Being a comment, it’s not going to address the totality of Two House theology, but it will address its most serious consequence in its thinking. I will address what I see is its most important flaw, and that is: its belief […]
