  • Crossing the Jordan in Life and Death – In Joshua 1, God told Joshua to lead the Hebrews across the Jordan to take possession of the land that had been promised to the patriarchs. The journeys of the Hebrews and the conquest of Canaan are a pattern of our lives and after-lives.
  • A New Kind of Existence Requires a New Kind of Leader – The first part of Joshua chapter 12 describes the conquests of Moses on the east side of the Jordan. But Moses was not the right leader for the conquest in the West.
  • Parable of the Householder’s Treasure in Matthew 13:51-52 – Yeshua taught his disciples that teachers in the Kingdom of God should be disciples first and then scholars who taught doctrine founded on the Old Testament scriptures, but not afraid of new ideas and new expressions of old ideas.

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.
