Rachel Netanel, Beit Netanel, En Kerem Israel
A couple of months ago a young Israeli man by the name of Yosi heard the Gospel from me and promised to come and study at my home. He has been coming twice a week and I have taught him only from the Tanach (Old Testament) and the richness of these Hebrew writings that are fulfilled in the Messiah, Yeshua. One lesson that I opened up for him was from Genesis 1:26 where it used the plural form for God (אלוהים = Elohim) “Then God (Elohim) said, ‘Let Us make man in our image (צלמנו), according to Our likeness (ונתמוד)…) Likeness in Hebrew is Continue reading

Script from Calev Myers 31/05/2012 http://jij.org.il
When I read the UN Security Council’s condemnation of the Syrian massacre, which was too little and too late: “Such outrageous use of force against civilian population constitutes a violation of applicable international law and of the commitments of the Syrian Government under United Nations Security Council Resolutions.” Immediately it came to my mind after reading this statement: Where was the stern condemnation by the UN when over 10,000 rockets and mortars were raining down on Israeli civilians in the Negev? Wasn’t that also an outrageous use of force?
It is a well-known fact that President Bashar Assad has been slaughtering his own citizens in the streets of Syria for many months. However, it is only now, after Continue reading

A brief background and sketch for a Messianic (Christian) understanding of the Jewish custom to welcome in the Sabbath day at the Friday evening family Sabbath dinner:
1. Gen. 2:1-3 Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He ceased on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He ceased from all His work which God had created and made.
2. Ex. 20:8-11 Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labour and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Shabbat of YHVH your God. You shall do no work. . . . For in six days YHVH made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore Continue reading
