Videos Related to Parsha T’rumah:

  • Father, Son, and Spirit in Matthew 3:16-17 – The anatomy of God is hinted at throughout Scripture, but never directly discussed. I don’t think “YHWH is one” is relevant, because both sides agree on that and it isn’t talking about God’s anatomy. Most of the passages that fuel the Trinitarian vs Unitarian debate can be reasonably interpreted to favor either side. Matthew 3:16-17, for example, shows Father, Son, and Spirit in three forms in the same place and time, but that’s only evidence for one side or the other if you presuppose your own conclusions.
  • The Crucible of Hearts – God knows you inside and out. He knows what you’re made of. But in order for you to reach your full potential in the Kingdom, he has to transform your raw material into something pure and useful. He has to melt you down in the fire and hammer you into shape.
  • Defeating Laziness – Defeating laziness when you really want to stop being lazy. Proverbs 6:6-11

Everything that Yeshua (aka Jesus) & the Apostles taught
was based solidly in the Old Testament scriptures.

Come with me as I draw out the connections that are so often missed
in today's church teachings.
