  • Religious Leadership and Withered Fig Trees in Matthew 21 – Yeshua’s attack on the fruitless fig tree seems very strange until you put it into the full context of the chapter and realize that it’s part of a literary structure that spans more than half the chapter. It’s really about leadership that is failing to help the people produce fruit. Yeshua replaced the religious leadership of his day with the Twelve Disciples, not as priests, but as the national teachers, prophets, and judges of Israel.
  • Did Jesus say to obey everything the Pharisees said? – What did Yeshua mean when he said “do and observe whatever the Pharisees tell you”? What did he mean about heavy burdens too hard for people’s shoulders? Or not being called teacher and father? Keep in mind that Yeshua used a lot of hyperbole in his sermons in order to make rhetorical points and that he never contradicted the Law of Moses or else he couldn’t have been the Messiah.

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.
