The Secret Codes in Matthew: Examining Israel’s Messiah, Part 7: Matthew 8 - 11:5, by Kevin M. Williams

The Secret Codes in Matthew: Examining Israel’s Messiah, Part 7: Matthew 8 – 11:5, by Kevin M. Williams

  Some scholars believe that when Yeshua (Jesus) and his disciples were walking the earth, messianic expectations were extremely high. There were those Hebrew scholars of the day who were well acquainted with Daniel chapter nine, and according to the “weeks” and “sevens,” they knew the Messiah’s arrival was imminent. As a result there were […]

The Secret Codes in Matthew: Examining Israel’s Messiah, Part 6: Matthew 5:21-7:29, by Kevin M. Williams

  Part Five of the series examined Yeshua’s1 proclamation, “Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish, but to fulfill” (Matthew 5:17). We examined that this statement has, over the centuries, given many believers the impression that Yeshua did away with or annulled the […]

Two Views On Women in Ministry

Two Views On Women in Ministry

  James Beck and Craig Blomberg, eds., Two Views On Women in Ministry (Zondervan, 2001), 383 pages. In the first century the apostles had to struggle with the Gentiles. Can they be accepted as equals in the faith? Can they be raised to positions of deacons, overseers, and elders? Can a Gentile actually be ordained […]

The Secret Codes in Matthew: Examining Israel’s Messiah, Part 5: Matthew 5:13-20, by Kevin M. Williams

After the Beatitudes (Matthew 5:3-10), there does not appear to be any break in the chronology of Matthew’s narrative. It seems that Yeshua1 (Jesus) continues teaching on this mountain in Galilee (see Matt. 7:28-29). There is however, a break in the context. If the assertions made in the last edition of the Pneuma Review were […]

The Secret Codes in Matthew: Examining Israel’s Messiah, Part 4, by Kevin M. Williams

“Now when He heard that John had been taken into custody, He withdrew into Galilee” (Matthew 4:12). This verse is not, as some might think, God incarnate fleeing danger.  Rather, it is possible that this was in fulfillment of John’s words about Jesus, “He must increase, but I must decrease” (John 3:30). John understood, as […]

The Secret Codes in Matthew: Examining Israel’s Messiah, Part 2, by Kevin M. Williams

Matthew 1:18-2:12 “Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows …” (Matt. 1:18). We could likely spend a lot of time debating the season of the Messiah’s birth, but we are not going to. We will not even try. Christian tradition holds to the 25th of December, a date that parallels the celebration of […]

Why blow the shofar if nothing is changing?

Why blow the shofar if nothing is changing?

A reader writes to Kevin Williams about his article, “The Call of the Shofar” that appeared in the Winter 2001 issue of the Pneuma Review and was later excerpted in the email newsletter. I rarely have time to peruse the material in your electronic newsletter but now the article by Kevin Williams caught my attention. […]

  Forward:  As a preparatory note, at times I will mention an “Israeli believer.” The distinction is, these are Jewish believers in Messiah Jesus who are also citizens of national Israel. The political situation in the Holy Land is one that, being recognized as a believer in Jesus can mean losing your job, your home, […]

The Ninth Hour

The Ninth Hour

Messianic teacher Kevin Williams takes us back to the time of Second Temple and shows the significance of the ninth hour of the day. Was the Messiah using temple language when he declared, “It is Finished”?   We read in Acts 3:1 “Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour […]

Cheleb: The Finest

  Seeing grace and mercy in the Old Testament story of Cain and Abel.   “For I am the Lord, I change not” (Malachi 3:6). God has changed. Or at least that seems to be what many are teaching in our day. There are denominations that teach that the God of the Old Testament is […]
