Birthpains of the Messiah (8 Part Series)

By |

The concept of the Birthpains of the Messiah was alluded to in many of the ancient rabbinic writings.  Unfortunately, today we are unfamiliar with the expression. In this series, I take you back to the very beginning of Scripture to examine how the creation of the universe was accompanied by birthpains.  This connects to the imagery of “a woman in labor writhing in pain”, which is one of the most vivid pictures in Scripture.  It is no small thing that Yeshua speaks of the birthpains in Matthew 24.     Part 1 Part 1 – Audio Part 2 Part 2 – Audio Part 3 Part 3 – Audio Part 4 Part 4 – Audio Part 5 Part 5 – Audio…
