What is the Torah?

The Torah is the first five books of the Bible, and it contains the instructions by which we’re all to live. The word “Torah” is commonly rendered as “law” in English Bibles, but it is more accurately defined as “teaching” or “instruction”.

Traditions of Men

Perhaps it’s time we threw off
the traditions and doctrines that
were created by men and hold only
to the one doctrine of the Word of
the Living God.

Why do you refer to Jesus as Yeshua?

Yeshua is our Hebrew Messiah’s true name, and it’s the name that His mother, brothers, and disciples all called Him by. It means “Yah is Salvation”.

Yeshua is the shortened form of Yehoshua and is actually “Joshua” in English. As difficult as it is to believe, the name “Jesus” didn’t even exist until a few hundred years ago. For confirmation of the fact that His name is Yeshua or “Joshua” in English, simply compare the KJV translation of Acts 7:45 with any other English translation. What you will notice is a glaring KJV translation error which stems from the fact that the name in the original text was Yehoshua — the KJV translators incorrectly assumed that the passage was referencing our Messiah instead of Joshua the Son of Nun!

Diagnosis

Ok, most of you know but, just putting it here for now as well.

Lura has been diagnosed with breast cancer. I will be trying to keep everyone up to speed but, it’s not easy with the size of the family, the different methods of communication and my limited abilities at texting. 😉

So, this is the beginning of another long journey. Seems like we both can’t be healthy at the same time.
