Chukat Regulation Numbers 19:1-22:1 Judges 11:1-33 “On the Face Again” by Mark Huey mark@outreachisrael.net The past three Torah portions (Beha’alot’kha; Shelakh-Lekha; Korach)[1] have dealt with the challenges that Moses encountered to his leadership, during Ancient Israel’s desert sojourn. This week in Chukat, the leap from the ordinances given by God, to approximately thirty-eight years of sojourning in the wilderness, is quite a contrast to contemplate. From red heifer sacrifices,[2] to the chronic problem of water shortages,[3] Moses striking rather than speaking to the rock,[4] and the challenge of hostile nations[5]—the narrative of Chukat covers a wide series of circumstances.

The New Testament Validates Torah MAXIMUM EDITION

23 June, 2017 messianicapologetics 0

Today’s broad Messianic movement is of the conviction that the Torah or Law of Moses is relevant instruction for God’s people in the post-resurrection era. This is a conviction firmly rooted within the teaching of Yeshua the Messiah, who explicitly said that He did not come to abolish or eliminate the Torah (Matthew 5:17-19). Yet throughout much of Christian history, and even more so today, many theologians and examiners have argued that Moses’ Teaching has been rendered inoperative, and/or that it was only to be followed by those in the pre-resurrection era. Many of today’s Messianic people, while having a […]

Salvation on the Line Volume I: The Nature of Yeshua and His Divinity–Gospels and Acts

22 June, 2017 messianicapologetics 0

In the past, the big issue which has faced the Messianic movement has understandably been the Messiahship of Yeshua of Nazareth, widely connected to the purposes of Jewish evangelism. For the present, the big issue which is staring right at the broad Messianic movement—to which no congregation, fellowship, family, or individual is entirely immune—is how to approach the nature of Yeshua (Jesus). Is Yeshua the Messiah God, or is He a created being? While many affirm Yeshua of Nazareth to be the eternal, uncreated Son of God who is indeed God—there are many others who express various levels of doubt […]

Mini-Series Coming Next Week: Validity of Torah-I

21 June, 2017 messianicapologetics 0

Messianic Apologetics has hundreds of articles and FAQ entries, not to mention thousands of pages of material, in our arsenal, to help people seeking answers. Starting this June, it is our plan to release various mini-series on important topics, combining written, audio, and video resources. About every two weeks or so, anywhere around a dozen teachings, with associated written and audio podcasts, will be featured. A two week interval should give us plenty of time to see teachings properly recorded and mastered, as we also have to balance this with longer term research projects. During the weeks that various mini-series […]

Update June 2017 For any one of us in full-time Messianic ministry, one of the worst experiences we have ever had is having to witness someone commit a severe act of apostasy. In the opening months of Outreach Israel Ministries in the Spring of 2003, I actually interacted with a number of people who were forthrightly convinced that Yeshua the Messiah was not God, and then later came to believe that He was not the Messiah. A few of them later ended up questioning the reliability of the Tanach Scriptures (OT). Because our ministry was so new at the time, […]

Korach Korah Numbers 16:1-18:32 1 Samuel 11:14-12:22 “Budding Leadership Patterns” by Mark Huey mark@outreachisrael.net One of the most dependable features of our Creator is that He is a God of order and consistency, who can be relied upon to perform His Word without fail. Lamentably, most of fallen humanity disregards this fact. But even more tragic is the sad testimony that many who claim a relationship with Him are not always aware of His immutable nature. Thankfully, the Almighty is cognizant that humans have a fallen nature and various limitations. He has made provisions within His sovereign rule, to guarantee […]

For if the dead are not raised, not even Messiah has been raised; and if Messiah has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Messiah have perished. If we have hoped in Messiah in this life only, […]

For all things belong to you, whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or things present or things to come; all things belong to you, and you belong to Messiah; and Messiah belongs to God.” Having just asserted how human wisdom is meaningless[1] in light of God’s wisdom (1 Corinthians 3:18-20),[2] some intriguing statements are made by Paul to the Corinthians in 1 Corinthians 3:21-23, which have been beset with […]
