  • Caleb and the Heart of Praise – Hebron is in the heart of Judah, which means praised. Caleb’s heart was pure and faithful, and so God made him the patriarch of Judah and gave him land in the heart of Judah’s territory. Joshua 14:14
  • Bad Tenants and Bad Vines in Matthew 21:33-46 – In the parable of the vineyard, the tenants are the teachers and elders of Israel, the servants are the prophets and apostles, and the vineyard itself represents the people of Israel. When God’s vineyard isn’t bearing good fruit, he has two options: uproot the entire vineyard and replant at a later season (See Isaiah 5:1-7.) or evict the tenants and appoint someone else to tend the vineyard in their place.
  • The Book of Proverbs Is about Principles, Not Laws – The Book of Proverbs isn’t a collection of commandments or absolute promises. It’s about principles. It’s about being better, not perfect.

Everything that Yeshua (aka Jesus) & the Apostles taught
