Yom Teruah 2017

Posted Sep 23, 2017

R. Dennis Richards presents the Day of Trumpets, or Yom Teruah, from a New Testament perspective to show that the shofar is a sign always representing a call to some sort of an awakening that both the Messiah and the Apostle Paul emphasized, but it is not to the traditionally celebrated new year.

Anointed, Called, & Confused 9 (Ki Tetzay)

Posted Sep 3, 2017

R. Paul Falk discusses the role of eunuchs which are mentioned throughout the Scriptures, by many from Moses to Messiah, in the context of those not permitted to enter the assembly because of castration. But he also shows a contrasting a pattern with other groups of people that are not permitted that seem to be permitted later. A thought-provoking look at an ancient custom that was fairly common, and a condition that may have been the case with certain men in the Bible that you had never considered before!
