  1. I received this in my email from Jewish Awareness Ministries. It was in response to my question about the origin of word Easter. The De-Judification of Pascha in the Early Church (Author Unknown) At least as late as the fourth century A.D., the holiday known as Easter was called Pascha. That Greek name came from the Hebrew Pesach ("Passover" in English). Easter, however, appears to be derived from Eastre, the name or festival of the Teutonic goddess of spring, to whom sacrifices were offered in the month of April. The word is Germanic, not Greek or Hebrew. We can surmis
  2. My understanding is that the entire Bible (all 66 books) was penned by Jewish "holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost." (2 Peter 1:21b). So don't knock "Jewish understanding" when it comes to understanding "what the Bible says". Romans 3:1 What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision? Romans 3:2 Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God.
  3. Bro. Dan... Check your Private Messages. I'm going to send you something else from Jewish Awareness Ministries. Three days and three nights will always be difficult to figure out in "Western" thinking and terminology.
  4. Brother Markle, I have been corresponding via email with a Jewish brother in Christ , Mark Robinson, executive director of Jewish Awareness Ministries concerning the three days and three nights, and the "high" day in John 19:31. Here is his response to my question concerning the Sabbath and the Sabbath being called a "high day" in John 19:31: Hi Linda, Sabbath is always Saturday. The “high” or “floating” sabbath crowd is wrong. Judaism only recognizes one sabbath day – Saturday. Here is additional info on the “High” or “”Great” Sabbath. (The Great Sabbath) commemor
  5. Invicta..... Daniel's 70th week is not a literal 7 day week. The 70 weeks are "weeks of years" in Daniel 9:24-27. You are allegorizing this passage of prophecy all out of context. Excerpt from the Way of Life Encyclopedia: DANIEL – David W. Cloud Daniel 9:24-27. God's timetable for restoring Israel and overthrowing the Gentile powers. The Seventy Weeks. The occasion of the 70 weeks was Daniel's prayer that God would have mercy on Israel. The vision of the 70 weeks is God's answer. In this vision God reveals to Daniel the time schedule and major events which will lea
  6. 1 Corinthians 15:1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 1 Corinthians 15:2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 1 Corinthians 15:3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 1 Corinthians 15:4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: 1 Corinthians 15:5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve
  7. The first day of the week begins at sundown Saturday evening (around 6PM)...at the END OF THE SABBATH. The Sabbath is over at sundown, not at dawn. The Sabbath begins at sundown Friday evening and ends at sundown Saturday evening. Jesus rose from the grave on the first day of the week. The Sabbath was over and done with -- all gone, bye-bye.
  8. You probably could also add John 20:1 John 20:1 The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.
  9. Invicta, According to the Scriptures and the Jewish calendar, a day begins at sundown. Genesis 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. Genesis 1:8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day. Genesis 1:13 And the evening and the morning were the third day. According to the Jewish calendar, the Sabbath begins at sundown on Friday evening and ends at sundown Saturday evening "in the end of the sabbath" is sundown on the 7th day (Saturday) and
  10. Brother Markle, The term "holy connvocation" doesn't mean Sabbath. A "holy connvocation" is more like a time of worship. Leviticus 23:6 And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto the LORD: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread. Leviticus 23:7 In the first day ye shall have an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein. holy ( קֹדֶשׁ qodesh ko'-desh ) from 6942; a sacred place or thing; rarely abstract, sanctity:—consecrated (thing), dedicated (thing), hallowed (thing), holiness, (X most) holy (X day, portion, thing), saint, sanctua
  11. The Resurrection and Passover The Scriptures are clear that the Last Supper was in fact the last earthly Passover that Jesus celebrated. At its core the celebration is conducted in an orderly manner, called a Seder, using ritual food items as symbols that tell of the deliverance of Israel from Egypt. In the 2nd Temple days, Passover, which is celebrated on the 14th of Nisan, had become an eight day celebration that included the Feast of Unleavened Bread (beginning the 15th) and the Feast of Firstfruits (16th)1. In that day (as today) the Seder was filled with messianic references and it
  12. I disagree with a Thursday crucifixion, but I do not call a Friday crucifixion "Good Friday" (which is a man made name that comes straight from the Roman Catholic Church). I received this email last year (April 4, 2015) from Jewish Awareness Ministries...the title is PASSOVER, CRUCIFIXION, AND THE RESURRECTION: April 4, 2015 Dear Beloved in Messiah, As believers in Messiah Jesus the important truth is that Jesus died for our sins and rose from the grave. I realize that some Christians "argue" over the day of the Passover celebration of Jesus and the day He was crucified. I have no in
  13. What Are The Three Tithes? What Is The Storehouse and the First Fruits? (Ron Robey) Discussion on the three tithes, the storehouse, and the first fruits. NOTE: Biblical tithes never were, and never will be monetary. Biblical tithes are defined in Leviticus 27:30-33 and Deuteronomy 14:22-29. Tithes and first fruits are not the same. (Nehemiah 10:37-38) The storehouse is not the church house.
  14. Just because there is no example anywhere in the Bible where a child got saved doesn't mean that a child is unable to get saved. There is no "age of reason"/age of accountability mentioned in the Bible either. As far as there being a command "to preach to children the Gospel" (Bolding is mine), that is an inaccurate statement. According to the Great Commission in Mark's Gospel: Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. "Every creature" would include children. There are some 5 year old children that have a better understanding of t
  15. He can claim to have accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior "until the cows come home". Making claims to be saved doesn't mean a person is saved. His "jesus" is "another jesus". When a person says that God's chosen people (the Jews) are of the devil, that person does not believe on the Jesus of the Bible. Romans 3:1 What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision? Romans 3:2 Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God. Romans 3:3 For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? Romans
  16. We have always finished eating all the grapes we buy. There are always some over-ripe and rotten (fermented) grapes in the bunch and I just toss them out. Yeast is destroyed at about 140-160 degrees F....so the yeast was destroyed before the juice concentrate was put in the freezer. We were not trying to "ferment" the grapes when we tried to make the wine. We accomplished that which we set out to do. Make unfermented wine (or grape juice). Using seal a meal bags is a far cry from putting the concentrate into old wineskins. There is no comparison. If you have never tried to make
  17. If you had read the article from the link I posted you would have your answer. 4. The making of alcoholic beverages is not a strictly natural process. Years ago I took for granted that if you took the juice of a grape and let it alone, not refrigerating it, it would automatically, in time, turn into alcoholic wine. There are several reasons why this is not true. It takes more than time to make wine. Sometimes people try to defend its use by saying that it must be good because God made it. But, the fact is, God did not make it. Man has learned how to make alcoholic liquors through processes th
  18. This verse is not speaking of over-ripe grapes...it is speaking of NEW WINE (the fruit of the vine). It is one of the verses which speaks of fresh, unfermented juice of the grapes found in the cluster. Isaiah 16 is not speaking of judgment on Israel. The context is God's judgment on MOAB. It is verse 10, not 8 which was quoted. Isaiah 16:10 And gladness is taken away, and joy out of the plentiful field; and in the vineyards there shall be no singing, neither shall there be shouting: the treaders shall tread out no wine in their presses; I have made their vintage shouting to
  19. It is quite obvious that the wine which was used in Bible times was totally different than the wine which is manufactured today. Things that are different (Bible wine/today’s wine) are not the same. What about CONTEXT??? In your zeal to interpret every instance of the word wine in Scripture as fermented, it is apparent that you are overlooking CONTEXT and the modern usage of the word wine. BTW, I am not using any "Greek (or Hebrew) guessicons". SOME INTRODUCTORY BIBLE FACTS ABOUT WINE: 1. The word wine in the Bible is a generic term; sometimes it means grape juice; so
  20. I was raised in Reform (Liberal) Judaism. My grandparents were Orthodox Jewish immigrants from Russia. They immigrated to the USA during the late 1890s or early 1900s. We (my brother, sister and I) were brought up in a Roman Catholic neighborhood in Cleveland, Ohio and were called Christ killers during our growing up years. We lived about 2 blocks from a Jesuit RC seminary (John Carroll University). As far as my "education" on water baptism, the pastor used Romans 6 as an explanation of the meaning of this church ordinance. If you are using 1 Cor. 1:22 as a proof text
  21. I am a born again Jew. I was saved 9 months before I was baptized. I never "demanded" a sign. Believer's baptism was explained to me before my pastor would baptize me. The Scripture teaches (and I was taught) that baptism does not save and that baptism is one of the two ordinances of the church....the Lord's Supper being the other ordinance. Believer's baptism is an outward profession of faith that has already taken place in the believer's heart. It is a picture of our "identification" with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection.
  22. Where do you find "eat the meat and spit out the bones" in the Bible? Doesn't Scripture say that "A little leaven leaventh the whole lump"? (Galatians 5:9) Error mixed with truth turns the truth into error. Eat The Meat, Spit Out The Bones There are a lot of clever-sounding sayings that make the rounds among Christians, and one of these is “eat the meat, and spit out the bones.” Many have written to exhort me to do this, and they mean that I shouldn’t worry so much about exposing error. They wonder why I can’t just “eat the meat, and spit out the bones.” There is a
  23. "a M.A.R.S. call from R.O.K. @ 3:00AM on Tues"?????
