Amazing teaching on this portion of Scripture. I use the Aramaic too. I didn't know the Talmud shows us so much that Yahshua is the Messiah. I'd heard not to study it that it doesn't agree with the law, is this so?
Excellent question. I would first off refer to Genesis 26:5 and Deuteronomy 17:8-13. One things "Messianics" have a hard time with is the clear evidence in the Scripture of a Torah She Be'al Peh, an oral Torah. For even the words of Yeshua in terms of halichic matters and the words of Paul are just that, Torah She Be'al Peh.
There is only one sect that disregards Deuteronomy 17, Genesis 26 and Matthew 23:1 and that is a sect known as the Karaites which is a Muslim infiltration in the Hebrew Roots. They admit even on their website that they are indeed Muslims and they are trying to infiltrate Judaism. They have not been successful in Orthodox Judaism but it saddens me to say they have been majorly successful in the Hebrew Roots. I have seen many fall pray to the Karaites and they are a very cleaver not only Muslim but anti-missionary sect and they claim to be the "original Jews" but it just is not so considering the earliest records of Karaites were in Islam in 600AD and the earliest in Judaism in 900AD. Now that is a red flag. Why do they sway people from the oral Torah? Because it proves the Messiahship of Yeshua. The Karaites prey in those who are very young in their walk and they have been very successful in terms of getting people to first question Paul then denounce Paul then they work to get people to deny Messiah Yeshua. So therefore we must also make note of 1 John 2:22 and when we look at Revelation 2:9 and Revelation 3:9 the thing that is scary is that Karaites who reject the rabbinical rulings fought alongside the Nazis in WWII they were known as the Crimean Karaites. So when you see that verse and it talks of "those who say they are Jews but are not" they are talking about Karaites. I can also prove a Yeshua was definitely not a Karaite by looking at Luke 22. Notice Yeshua is having a Pesach Seder, where is the Seder commanded in the written Torah?? Nowhere, it is in the oral tradition. We also see Yeshua quote R. Hillel often and favorably in 10 different verses. The oral Torah is not for the young in their walk but it is important to have an appreciation for it and move on to it when you know the written Chumash front to back and know it well.
Rabbi where can I get a PDF of the Talmid so I can look up Sukkot 52? I find this so fascinating how you explain Yoseph.
We have the Talmud for free download at www.NazareneMedia.net under the "media" tab click on "free eBooks" and the Talmud as well as over 150 other books are there for free.
Praise Yah. I listened to this and my friend Daniel said you don't teach Yahusha anymore but I'm happy to see he is wrong you teach about the Savior so lovingly that I feared if he was right then we would have lost our sage of the generation which is you Rabbi Chris. Your audios and videos are such an anointed blessing when I listen I feel I am sitting on the floor of your house learning at the feet of a great sage. If you had left Yahusha I would have too because I trust your teaching so much because it blessed me so much and this one is no different. You help many who want to learn about Yahusha and we are happy to have a great sage like you on our side. Blessings to you in the name of Yahuah.
Just heard you on Nazarene Media radio and this was the best I'd heard on this readings. You must do a lot of study to quote as many things you do. I can't believe this is free, I've paid for recordings that aren't half as good as this. Your a devoted servant and an anointed man. Is this a weekly recording? Thank you.
Glad you enjoyed it and yes mam it is weekly :)
Don't listen to this fraud listen to real teachers like me Rico Cortes and Adam White at www.messianiclambradio.com and www.wisdomintorah.com. Chris is a fraud he's not even a believer in Moshiach he is faking it. Don't be fooled. Those who are fooled are lemmings heading towards destruction you will burn in the fires of hell with Chris. Listen not to this false prophet.
Rabbi do you do kiddish? Is it a mitzvot? I love your shows.
Kiddish is a very sacred thing. Many congregations do the kiddish in the orthodox sects every week. I think personally it is a good thing to do if you are compelled to do so, especially of you have lost someone close to you. The thing that is beautiful about the kiddish is that it is a prayer for someone who has passed on and in many ways it became a part of our tradition in the Parsha Chayai Sarah. Let it be known Yeshua was not against "all" tradition. He was against tradition taking away from God. Some tradition helps us to have a physical model to understand the spiritual because as human beings we have varying degree of intellect. Yeshua himself engaged in a tradition in John 10, and Luke 22 both he endorsed, one in his words and the other in traveling 90 miles on foot to be in Jerusalem. But the kiddish is a prayer for the dead, yet the prayer does not mention death once and we see Avraham Avenu engaging in the kiddish in the Parsha Chayia Sarah. You asked if it is a mitzvos....I say no yet it is a mitzvah. Only do the kiddish if you feel compelled to or if your congregation does it do not separate yourself from your assembly when they do it. And if they don't then do not make it an issue if you feel compelled yet the others and the Rav does not. For the most important mitzvos and mitzvah is shalom and having holy convocations. I pray that helps to answer your question.
I pray to YHVH your teachings reach all corners of the earth and I know with each person who listens we are one step closer to the return of Yehoshua Hamashiach. Your teachings are are like the special meals people bring out the good china for and the wine glasses. Each teaching you do, for me and my family it is an event and a special occasion that is like a holiday for each of us. We used to watch Jim Staley and Michael Rood and we felt something was missing and we feared we would never find what was missing and your teachings have restored the faith of the first century. Satan does not like what you are doing and those you are reaching. I would learn from you any day of the week. Thank you for not charging for your teachings you obviously could make a lot of money if you odd I see all the comments and I hear people in my own assembly speak about your teachings at oneg all the time. They pass around your DVDs and CDs all the time and you are reaching more than you know for each person who listens online there are 2 more that you don't know about. I think everyone in my assembly have at least 2 CDs of DVDs of your teachings thank you once again for not charging us. Tears flow from my eyes every week when I get the email about your new teachings. I receive so much blessing and peace when I listen to you.
I love Pardes Radio Network so much. I'm listening too all the shows and sermons on sabbath and so much knowledge is on this station. You are my favorite of all them though. Such a sweet servant of Yah you are.
Rabbi I was surfing in the Jewish section in the iTunes Store I saw Brutal Planet is still #1 and I didn't know that this one is #3 there. Wow that is so wow. G-d has put an amazing blessing on your podcast you're reaching thousands everyday and it warms my heart.
