  • The Meaning of Matzo - Unleavened Bread in the Bible

    04/28/2016 11:53:32 AM PDT · by Lera · 18 replies
    One for Israel ^ | 27 April 2016
    PMThe Passover meal marks beginning of the week-long "Feast of Unleavened Bread". Israel was commanded to eat unleavened bread, matzo bread with no yeast (hametz) in it, for a whole week. So Jewish people in Israel have been crunching their way through multiple square sheets of matzo bread and looking wistfully at the closed bakery sections for a while now. But what does it mean? The most obvious answer is a reminder of the swift exodus from Egypt, when there was no time for the bread to rise. But there is one small problem with that explanation... Timely instructions God...

    MK Yoel Hasson (Zionist Camp) demanded Monday that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu fire Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely “immediately, tonight,” over “messianic” comments she made that “could inflame the entire Middle East.” Hotovely's “sin,” as far as Hasson is concerned, was a comment she made in an interview on the Knesset Channel earlier Monday, in which she said that her “dream is to see the Israeli flag fly atop the Temple Mount. This is the holiest site in the world for Jews.” Indeed, the Temple Mount is so called because it was where the first two Temples, the Divinely-mandated houses...

    They call it the “Kaduri Revival,” and reports over recent months have confirmed the teachings of one of Israel’s most venerated rabbi are leading Jews time and again to accept Jesus Christ as the Messiah. And face persecution. Baptist preacher and radio host Carl Gallups says the threats facing Messianic Jews now in Israel is “reminiscent of what we read about in the New Testament – in the early days of the church.” There, he said, Jews who followed Jesus Christ were persecuted. And today, they “are facing the same hardships and persecution the early church faced,” he said. “Gallups...

    Before the start of the Holocaust, Jewish born Rose Warmer found her Messiah. When her people were being deported, she longed to go with them. She handed herself in, was transported to Auschwitz and brought the people there the Word of God. Rising anti-Semitism Rose was born in a well-to-do Jewish family in Hungary. She studied art, music and dance and led a wandering artist’s life in Vienna and Budapest. In the 1930s when Nazism was rising, anti-Semitism too was growing day by day. Jews were being forced to wear the yellow star and were thrown out of professional jobs...

    JERUSALEM – Judah Ben Samuel was a legendary and prolific German rabbi of the 12th century who made some astonishing and specific predictions about the future of Jerusalem and Israel that came true. Judah Ben Samuel, also known as Judah he-Hasid (Judah the Pious), lived and worked from the end of the 12th century until the beginning of the 13th century in Regensburg, authoring a number of books in the German language. snip Judah Ben Samuel also prophesied that during the 10th Jubilee Jerusalem would be under the control of the Jews and the Messianic “end times” would begin.

    Noach 2011 While we normally consider Noach and his generation to be a prime example of how a society can so easily lose it all, there are additional and highly significant lessons and applications very relevant to our times. We are now still feeling the effects of the 'chamas', ‘the ‘me first’ philosophy, which led to the unscrupulous practices by so many, all too long, especially in the financial world. The ongoing grassroots ‘social protests’ for no special reason, which have spread across North America, are reason enough for concern. The decay from the top has had a ripple effect...

    TEN REASONS WHY ISAIAH 53 CANNOT REFER TO ISRAEL Compiled by Jonathan Sacks The passage known as “Isaiah 53” actually begins at Isaiah 52:13 and includes the entire 53rd chapter of Isaiah. This passage speaks in detail of the life, suffering, and death of Messiah. (This passage is quoted below.) The overwhelmingly dominant Jewish view throughout history has been that this extended passage speaks of Messiah. (See “What Rabbis Have Said about Isaiah 53.”) Therefore, the Jewish view of the Messiah traditionally has included the understanding that the Messiah would suffer and die as the ultimate kaparrah (atonement) for the...

Jack Teitel, 37, who in November was indicted on two charges of pre-meditated murder, three charges of attempted murder and numerous weapons charges, is expected to enter a plea on Sunday. David and Leah Ortiz, parents of the teenage victim, said that the 10 months since the indictment have been difficult but their stance toward Teitel remains the same; they have forgiven him for the attack but want him to face...

The Just Jewish blog actually has links to some songs based on Psalm 27.

    Question: My sister was baptized and has since married and had a child. My mother claims the child is Jewish, but how could that be? If Judaism is a religion, if someone leaves it, she's no longer Jewish, right? Response: Logically, I would have to agree with you. If Judaism is a religion, then someone who doesn't believe in the religion should be no longer Jewish. The reality, however, is that it doesn't work that way. Throughout the Tanach, we find Jews breaking every facet of their covenant with G‑d, joining and forming all sorts of idolatrous cults and heathen...

    It being traditional to read the book of Ruth for Shavuot, I thought I'd post some commentary for my fellow disciples of Yeshua. The book of Ruth is, on the surface, a simple little romance story set in the backdrop of the time of the Judges. Actually, that’s only true in the minds of modern students since the idea of romantic love is a Medievil invention born of tales of chivalry, but that’s another issue. In truth, Ruth from its inception was intended as a story of redemption, one based in a very Jewish sense of love. And woven into...

    Shavuot is a Feast that is de-emphasized in the traditional Jewish community (due to two thousand years of being forbidden to own farmland) and largely misunderstood in Christendom. Yet it is one of the three pilgrimage Feasts, in which all the men of Israel were commanded to present themselves before the Holy One. It turns out that the meaning of this Feast is easy to apprehend as long as we look at it first through the lens of the Exodus from Egypt. In the third month after Israel’s departure from Egypt, we arrived at Mt. Sinai (Exo. 19:1). Three days...

    The Messianic Jew & Charismatic Dispensationalism by Marshall Beeber In the nineteenth century a theological revolution called "Dispensationalism" rightly outlined the "Biblical Historical Perspective", thereby giving mankind a clearer picture of how God has provided and continues to provide salvation to man throughout history.  By acknowledgement of this perspective, an accord between Hebrew Old Covenant and New Covenant prophecy was forged, sweeping away many of the contradictions that divided Christian and Orthodox Jewish prophetic viewpoints.  Dispensationalists became God's instrument of change in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries,  leading the way in promoting the support of the establishment of the...

Nor were they much comforted by the column that acknowledged the use of the picture as a mistake for a Rosh Hashana story. It was more than a mistake; it missed the point. It was not a picture about Jews celebrating Judaism. It was a picture of Christians playing at being Jews. While that is a...

Two frequently cited verses Christianity uses to support the idea that "the Law is a curse," are: Galatians 3:10 -- For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, "Cursed be every one who does not abide by all things written in the book of the law, and do them." Galatians 3:13 -- Christ redeemed us from the curse of...

    "Not Subject to the Law of God?" Part 2. The Hebrew View of the Law/Torah and Salvation Terminology We begin with what Christianity calls "the Law," but in Judaism is called the Torah -- the term given to the first five books of the Bible. This is also referred to by Christians as the "Pentateuch" (a Greek term). The term "Law," especially in the legal sense as the western mind understands it, is not an appropriate translation of the word "Torah." A correct translation of Torah is "instruction" or "revelation" -- as in "God's instruction," or "revelation from God." This...

    Jewish protest gives Holy Land theme park more media coverage By David Rosen ORLANDO, Fla. – Condemnation from two Jewish rabbis and the leader of the militant Jewish Defense League over the opening of the $16 million Holy Land Experience was a blessing in disguise for the “living Biblical museum” founder, Marvin Rosenthal. Rosenthal, a Jewish Believer in Yeshua and founder of Zion’s Fire Ministries, said one of his most vocal opponents had been Rabbi Merrill Shapiro of Congregation Beth Am in Orlando. Prior to the theme park opening on Feb. 5, the Orlando Jewish community of about 25,000 people...

    Arutz Sheva IsraelNationalNews.com -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Send to printer When the High Court Welcomes Messianic Jews by S. Alfassa Marks May 14, 2002 On February 20, 2002, the Israeli Supreme Court ruled that the Interior Ministry must register as Jews those who were converted by the Reform or Conservative movements in Israel or abroad. This ruling has not only set in motion a wave which will flood Israel with non-Jews who actually think they are Jews, but has opened the flood gates to the proselytizing Christians. The Christian sect deceitfully calling itself ‘messianic Judaism’ is gaining incredible momentum and educating its members...
