Sinai. This feast was also designated one of the 3 pilgrim feasts, along with the feast of Unleavened Bread and the Feast of Weeks, in which all men of the Covenant must appear before Yahweh at His holy Sanctuary [Exodus 23:14-17; 34:18-23; Deuteronomy 16:1-16]. You can find references to this feast in Exodus 23:16b; 34:22-23; Leviticus 23:33-43; Numbers 29:12-39, 42-43; Deuteronomy 16: 13-15.

The former chapter tells us of the majesty of the divine revelation as it was made to Moses on ‘the mount of God.’ Let us notice that, whatever was the visible pomp of the external Theophany to the senses, the true revelation lay in the proclamation of the ‘Name’; the revelation to the conscience and the heart; and such a revelation had never before fallen on mortal ears. It is remarkable that the very system which was emphatically one of law and retribution should have been thus heralded by a word which is perfectly ‘evangelical’ in its whole tone.

Arnold Fruchtenbaum Ariel Ministries There are certain key distinctions in the Scriptures. The Betrothal, Divorce and Re-betrothal of God’s people, through Messiah. Have you ever wondered why Christ is called the Bridegroom, and the Church is called the Bride?

The Betrothal, Divorce and Re-betrothal of God’s people, through Messiah

(As shown in this study, the word “Church” does not mean a building, an organization or a denomination. In the New Testament and in the Old, it specifically refers to the Assembly, the believers and God’s chosen people). Is this relationship between Christ and His people, a New Testament idea?

Qorbanot: Sacrifices and Offerings

However, I felt I had to address these issues, because it is one of the two subjects I receive the most questions about. Interestingly, the questions I receive on this subject are invariably from non-Jews. I will begin by answering the questions I am most commonly asked on these subjects, and then proceed to a more comprehensive discussion of the subject of qorbanot. Frequently Asked Questions Do Jews offer sacrifices today?

Jesus’ Death and the Powers: Religious Exclusivism (The Temple) The Old Testament salvation story as interpreted by the eighth-century prophets and then reiterated in Jesus’ life and teaching centers around God’s liberating acts in the exodus and Torah’s provisions for social life meant to sustain that liberating work.

Jesus’ Death and the Powers: Religious Exclusivism (The Temple)

This version of the story minimizes the role of the temple. It understands the temple to be secondary, even extraneous, to the core salvation dynamic. 'Lord God of hosts' - By. By One of the oldest prayers of the Mass is the “Sanctus,” or, as most American Catholics say, the “Holy Holy Holy.” It is composed of two parts, the first of which is based on the hymn Isaiah heard the angels singing when he had a vision God in the Temple (Isa. 6:3) and the second contains the greeting of the crowds when Jesus entered Jerusalem before his passion (Matt. 21:9). This latter contains a citation of Psalm 118:25-26: “Hosanna … Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.”

The Mass is an intensely biblical prayer, as Scott Hahn has taught us by example and writings. Hahn, an ex-Presbyterian minister has attributed his conversion to his discovery of the biblical nature of our liturgy. It is to be hoped, however, that the new translation of the Mass in English will help believers to learn more about the Bible and to ponder its words and its mysteries. I think that “Lord God of hosts” is an improvement for three reasons. 中文聖經譯經史. 作者 Chia-Hsing, Pi 2012.03.25 聖經翻譯早在公元前三世紀便已開始,但要到公元七、八世紀才有把聖經譯成中文的文獻——「大秦景教流行中國碑」。

景教,也就是聶斯托留派的基督教(Nestorian Christianity)。 The Gospel in the Day of Atonement. Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, is the holiest and most solemn day of the year for the practicing Jew, revered with contrition, confession and repentance. But what does this Jewish observance have to do with Christianity? Every year, Yom Kippur pictures man’s need for redemption through a substitutionary sacrifice that would one day be ultimately fulfilled in the once for all sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Remembering the Context Leviticus is often overlooked because of a common misconception that it is an outdated book of arcane rules concerned with moral conformity (see What are Christians to do With Old Testament Law? Jesus in the Feasts of Israel: The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) The Scapegoat by William Holman Hunt 1854 This is the sixth in a series of articles on Jesus in the feasts of Israel.

Download or listen to audio file (part 1) Background Yom Kippur, or the Day of Atonement, is Israel’s most solemn holy day. Kippur is derived from the Hebrew word kaphar, which means “to cover.” God designated Yom Kippur as a day in which “you must practice self-denial” (Lev. 23:27, 32). Yom Kippur is an especially significant day for Israel’s priesthood. Yom Kippur - Day of Atonement. What do Messianic Jews do regarding Yom Kippur? Do we fast, afflict ourselves, and confess our sins, or do we rejoice in the knowledge that we are forgiven of all our sins because of Yeshua's perfect avodah as our Kohen Gadol of the New Covenant? In other words, should we be sad and afflicted or should we be happy and comforted? In post-Temple Judaism (i.e., rabbinical Judaism) it is customary for Jews to wish one another g'mar chatimah tovah (גְּמַר חַתִימָה טוֹבָה), "a good final sealing" during the Ten Days of Awe (i.e., the ten days running from Rosh Hashanah until Yom Kippur).

The reason for this is that according to Jewish tradition the "writing of God's verdict" (for your life) occurs on Rosh Hashanah, but the "sealing of the verdict" occurs on Yom Kippur. In other words, God in His Mercy gives us another ten days to do "teshuvah" before sealing our fate....

ZEALOT - 革命分子耶穌: 重返拿撒勒人耶穌的生平與時代. 導論 關於拿撒勒人耶穌,我們擁有的最初文字資料來自於保羅的書信,保羅是耶穌早期的追隨者,大約西元六十六年去世(保羅最初的書信,《帖撒羅尼迦前書》,完成的時間大約在西元四十八年到五○年,也就是耶穌死後的二十年。)

然而,保羅的問題在於,他對於歷史的耶穌興趣缺缺。 他的書信只有三個地方提到耶穌的生平:最後的晚餐(哥林多前書11:23-26),釘十字架(哥林多前書2:2),以及對保羅來說最關鍵的復活。 保羅說,「若基督沒有復活,我們所傳的便是枉然,你們所信的也是枉然」(哥林多前書15:14)。 7 Differences Between Galilee and Judea in the Time of Jesus.
