Is History Important? (via FFoZ.org) ⠀⠀⠀ The fast days and special periods of reflection in the biblical calendar help us delve intentionally into God’s purposes in history; to plumb the depths of meaning both of the joys and of the tragedies and suffering of the past. As we do, we can marvel at how the ancient voices speak directly into our present reality and shine a light of understanding on today’s circumstances of confusion and pain. History, as God’s story, is the cord that binds his people together. It is the crucible of the past that unites us and, as we learn from it, we can be transformed and propelled into the future with a clearer vision of his redemptive purposes. ⠀⠀⠀ If we forget or choose to ignore the suffering and lessons of the past because, maybe, that would disturb our comfort and interfere with our “happiness,” we will lose the plot of our existence. Without its anchor of core values and deeper meaning we will be drifting aimlessly in a shallow and meaningless sea. ⠀⠀⠀ Western culture presents us with a perfect example. With its emphasis on youth and pressing forward without regard for, or understanding of, the roots of history, there is no awe, respect, or gratitude for what went before. Thus, as Erica Brown describes, “Memorial Day [in the United States] is not observed as a mourning period for the loss of soldiers; it is a day of barbecues, sales, and public pool openings.” We may notice, too, that Thanksgiving has lost its historic and spiritual meaning and has become a day of lavish and excessive turkey dinners and football. The values have been lost along with the remembrance and there is a shallowness about it all. This also can be applied to Christianity that has cut itself off from the history of its Jewish roots; and the celebrations of Christmas and Easter can be viewed in the same light. The plot has been lost. ⠀⠀⠀ (Click the link in our bio to read the full article)

Kari is following Yeshua in a Hebrew way! Here’s her story. Hi, I’m Kari. I’ve been following Yeshua since childhood, but I feel like my childhood began all over again when I discovered his Jewishness. When I was a sophomore in college, four things coalesced together: Jews for Jesus came to our church, my best friend and I attended two Passover Seders, my parents began attending a Messianic Jewish synagogue, and I tagged along with my best friend on a Biola-sponsored educational outing to a synagogue, led by a young Messianic Jew and his then-fiance (who also happened to be Student Ministries President at Biola University where I was planning to transfer). That year brought a whirlwind of change. I began to explore this Jewish Yeshua, trying to grasp Him in His own context, delving into the world of His modern-day brothers and sisters, and learning about His ancient world. I also began to explore my own family’s Jewish ancestry, which was disconnected several generations ago when my great-grandmother became a Christian. I felt strangely drawn on both fronts to this newfound path. There was only one way to describe it: I was home. Shortly after these changes were in full swing, I transferred to Biola University, roomed with my best friend, and together with the help of the aforementioned Student Ministries President, we planned the first-ever school-wide Passover Seder at Biola. It was a momentous occasion that drew over one hundred students and involved our most hilarious story to date: the time we chased a pregnant sheep in our bare feet across Biola’s urban campus. Yes. Good times, indeed. Weaving itself through that entire year was my own unfolding love story. I met a young Jewish man who had been raised in a Conservative Jewish home and had become a disciple of Yeshua three years before. ...click through our bio link to read the rest in this identical post on Facebook. #hebrew #bible #torah #messianic #israel #jewish #christian #yeshua #jesus

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Is the Plural Form of Isaiah 53 Talking About Israel? (from: www.oneforisrael.org) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Most Jewish people today believe that Isaiah 53 isn’t talking about the Messiah, but about the nation of Israel, suffering at the hands of the world.

Physical Movement in Jewish Prayer: Speaking to God through the body (via myjewishlearning.com) ⠀⠀⠀ The idea that body movement can express devotion to God appears in the Book of Psalms: “All my limbs shall say ‘Who is like You, O Lord?’” (35:10) In Midrash Tehillim, an 11th century exegetical text, the rabbis interpret “all my limbs” quite literally: ⠀⠀⠀ With my head, I bend my head and bow down in prayer…And I also wear phylacteries [tefillin] on my head. With my neck, I fulfill the precept of wrapping oneself in fringes [tzitzit]. With my mouth, I praise You, as it says: “My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord” (Psalms 145:21)…With my face, I prostrate myself, as it says: “He fell down on his face to the earth” (Genesis 48:12)… With my nose, when I smell spices with it [during the Havdalah blessing said] at the outgoing of Shabbat. With my ears, I listen to the singing of the Torah. ⠀⠀⠀ In this text, the body is presented as a tool for praising God, mostly in terms of the way ritual objects are used on the body, but also in terms of the body’s own movements. Today, the physical actions listed in this midrash, as well as a number of other body movements, have become an established part of Jewish prayer. ⠀⠀⠀ (Click the link in our bio to read the full article)

Izzy here. You have to see this for yourself - this Indian man has been planting a forest since 1979 to save his island. This story hit me so deep, because I realized that in many ways it's a picture of OUR growing tribe. Take two minutes to watch the video, and see three similarities between his story and what we're doing, here: https://goo.gl/wS2S8a (and I know, this is Instagram so you can't click through that link doh! Here's what you do - click through the link in our bio to our Facebook page, and watch it there. Thanks for being cool that way!)

Hallowed be Your Name via FFoZ.org ⠀⠀⠀ Yeshua taught us to pray, “Our Father, who is in heaven, hallowed be your name.” What do we mean when we ask God to “hallow” his name? ⠀⠀⠀ “Hallow” is simply an old English word meaning to “sanctify” or “make holy.” What does it mean to pray that God’s name be sanctified? The name of God refers to both His reputation and His person. The prophecies of Ezekiel lament that Israel’s subjugation to foreign powers and the people’s exile among the nations profane God’s name. The LORD says, “I will sanctify My great name which has been profaned among the nations, which you have profaned in their midst. Then the nations will know that I am the LORD … when I prove Myself holy among you in their sight” (Ezekiel 36:23). In other words, the LORD’s name will be sanctified (proven holy) when He redeems His people, bringing an end to exile and subjugation. ⠀⠀⠀ The messianic redemption will sanctify God’s name. The prophet Isaiah predicts that, in that day, “They will sanctify [His] name; indeed, they will sanctify the Holy One of Jacob and will stand in awe of the God of Israel” (Isaiah 29:23). In this sense, the words, “May your name be sanctified” expresses the same sentiment as the words “Your Kingdom come” and “Your will be done.” When we pray the words, “Hallowed be your name,” we are asking God to sanctify his name by bringing the Messianic Era. ⠀⠀⠀ (Click the link in our bio to read the full article)

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ FFOZ Torah Portion Ekev Deut 7:12-11:25 Self Righteousness (from: torahclub.ffoz.org) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Moses assured the Israelites that God will give them the conquest of Canaan. He warned them three times lest they presume that their righteousness provided sufficient merit for their success. Moses had already told them that their future success would be guaranteed “because” of their obedience to the commandments. The people of Israel might naturally assume, then, that success was an indication of their own righteousness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We might be prone to make a similar mistake. A pastor with a successful, growing congregation might assume that he is in God’s favor because of the numbers. A businessman who lands a lucrative contract may suppose that he is being rewarded for his godliness. In both cases, the assumptions may be correct, but there might be other factors at work not at all related to one’s personal righteousness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Moses stressed three times that “it is not because of your righteousness that the LORD your God is giving you this good land to possess, for you are a stubborn people” (Deuteronomy 9:6). He went on to rehearse the sin of the golden calf and the incidents in the wilderness that provoked God to anger. He recounted how he fasted on their behalf and pleaded for their forgiveness. He retold the story of how God, in His mercy, relented, and did not punish them as their deeds deserved. If not for Moses’ intercession and atonement on their behalf, Israel would not have even survived the journey from Egypt. They had Moses to thank for their deliverance thus far. There could be no talk of their merit and righteousness. Their observance of the Torah was not sufficient to merit the conquest of the land. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If the children of Israel did not deserve to take possession of the land, why did God give it to them? Moses gave two reasons: The sin of the Canaanites and the covenant promises to the patriarchs in Deuteronomy 9:5 and Romans 4:13. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ (Click the link in our bio to read the full article.)

In both cases, the assumptions may be correct, but there might be other factors at work not at all related to one’s personal righteousness.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Moses stressed three times that “it is not because of your righteousness that the LORD your God is giving you this good land to possess, for you are a stubborn people” (Deuteronomy 9:6). He went on to rehearse the sin of the golden calf and the incidents in the wilderness that provoked God to anger. He recounted how he fasted on their behalf and pleaded for their forgiveness. He retold the story of how God, in His mercy, relented, and did not punish them as their deeds deserved. If not for Moses’ intercession and atonement on their behalf, Israel would not have even survived the journey from Egypt. They had Moses to thank for their deliverance thus far. There could be no talk of their merit and righteousness. Their observance of the Torah was not sufficient to merit the conquest of the land.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If the children of Israel did not deserve to take possession of the land, why did God give it to them? Moses gave two reasons: The sin of the Canaanites and the covenant promises to the patriarchs in Deuteronomy 9:5 and Romans 4:13. ⠀⠀⠀⠀
