The feast of Purim is almost here and we're going to talk about a central idea of the holiday, casting lots.  That's what a "Pur" is.  The Hebrew word is "goral".  But we're also going to hit on the Urim and the Thummim in this conversation.

The four words we look at in this episode are often translated "rejoice".  Rejoicing is an expression of joy.  The expression in Hebrew are really cool.

Feb 9, 2017

There are many Hebrew words for happiness and joy in Hebrew.  I'm going to spend two weeks unpacking seven of them.  First up - Simchah, Asher and Chedvah.

Feb 2, 2017

Righteousness is an important and sometimes difficult word to understand in scripture.  Its antonym Rashah means guilty or wicked.  But they both are established in relationship to a standard or standard giver.

Jan 26, 2017

The fear of Jehovah and the command to not fear other things is a dominant theme in the Hebrew Bible.  It's important to understand the nature of fear in Hebrew to understand our attitude toward our heavenly Father.

Jan 18, 2017

The word for neighbor (re'ah) is an important idea in scripture.  Defining who was meant by this term was a significant theological/legal debate.  Yeshua's answers this question with a story that leaves everyone undone and dividing lines broken to pieces.

Jan 12, 2017

The Gospel is the message that contains the power of salvation and in today's episode I share a couple thoughts from the Greek word and the Hebrew!

Jan 5, 2017

Yeshua was asked what was the greatest commandment and He quotes the Sh'ma and the Ahavtah from Deut. 6.  I want to take a look at the use of heart, soul and strength in this context and show the expanding circle of love that he is describing.  A circle that He wants to fill.

Kinah is a passion for what is yours or you wish were yours.  It is most often translated as jealousy or zeal.

Heaven is of common word in the Hebrew Bible and refers to multiple places like the sky, space and the dwelling place of Elohim.

To be noble is to be generous, to be a leader is to lift up others and to be a ruler is to make the world like you want it to be.

Nov 16, 2016

Lord is a very common term for Jehovah in the scriptures, not to be confused with LORD (YHVH).  The basis for authority in Lord is very important as well as the nature of the special word for Lord used exclusively for Jehovah.  Sar is the Hebrew word often translated prince in the Bible.  Yeshua is referred to as the Prince of Peace for good reason.

Nov 10, 2016

Given the recent election in the US, I'm going to spend the next couple weeks talking about words for rulers and authority in Hebrew.  This week is el (god) and melech (king).  Both words are very common in scripture, but perhaps not fully appreciated.

Nov 2, 2016

The Hebrew words for times are all rich with meaning.  I share what the sense of each word is and an insight into the nature of telling time in the Bible.  Yom = Day; Shavuah = Week; Chodesh = Month; Shanah = Year.

Sep 29, 2016

Rosh Hashanah is coming up this week and in the Bible Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish new year) is the Feast of Trumpets.  There are two Hebrew words that are translated trumpets and they are very different instruments.  I also discuss the two words that are most associated with these instruments.

Sep 22, 2016

This week I sit down with Renalee Colon to hear her miraculous testimony concerning the Sabbath (Shabbat in Hebrew).  The word Shabbat comes from the idea of ceasing and is used as a verb in the scriptures as well as a noun.  The Sabbath was created on the seventh day by God ceasing from His work.  It's a day that He blessed and set apart as a day of rest for His creation and especially for man.  If you would like to learn more about the Sabbath check out our Beth Emanuel Sermon podcasts on the Sabbath that I recently finished.
