This teaching was filmed for ITVN (Israel TV Network) and examines the first chapter of Genesis. I present the material in a more conversational style and bring many elements together from some of my other teachings. Topics such as the language of creation, the unity of heaven and earth, and the dedication of the cosmic temple are covered. Part 1
The Bible is not an instruction manual on how the world works yet it does reveal how God moves and works in the world. The Bible does not speak in our culture and language nor does it address our modern world. It was written primarily to a people who were auditory learners— they listened to the ancient stories and filled in the gaps with their imagination. It’s rather like comparing what is seen through the Hubble telescope with Van Gogh’s painting, “Starry Night.” Recognizing the difference will aid in our understanding of how God created our world. Part 1
The Lion of Judah is nearly always connected to Yeshua the Messiah without any thought to its historical context. There are references to the lion of the Tribe of Judah in both Revelation and Genesis. The lion is generally associated with conquest, with God’s wrath against Israel’s enemies, and with the kings of Israel, especially King David and his royal dynasty. This teaching examines the historical backdrop for the lion from the time of the Maccabees to the Second Temple period. Part 1
