Note on one of the teachings I heard here: The disciples/apostles didn’t write things down right away. A small proof is that our Messiah has to bring it back to their minds for them to remember it. John was in prison in his old age when he wrote letters. Most of the letters written were on journeys they were taking while teaching years after the messiah resurrected. What a journey me and my husband have had also. Ours is a very long story. So much happened. We lost everything and gained it all as we walked in the Torah! Shalom Achi n Achoti, we are grateful for your obedience and teachings, be kosher, stay humble and modest and always be Shalom!

Awesome Teachings!

Rank #3: TESTIFY! 1.0 What, who, how, where, why of witnessing of Yeshua. Unpacking term. Lineup witnesses.

Podcast cover
Read more
First talk on TESTIFY! The what, who, how, where, and why of witnessing to Yeshua's cause. Definition of witness in Torah, one who tells what he has seen or heard. Hebrew terms ed and edut, Greek terms martur, martureo, and marturion. Witnesses tell a story, they say "This is what happened. I was there!" Instances from the Gospel of Yochanan and Acts of the Apostles. People telling the story of Elazar's resurrection were testifying of Yeshua. Speaking well of someone, making them the hero of the story, giving them props, contributing to their good reputation, are all wrapped up in the Greek word for witness in the Apostolic Writings. Examples include Yeshua, Timothy, Cornelius, Ananias, the seven including Stephen and Philip, and the criteria for elders. The Father is a witness and testifies of Yeshua. The Holy Spirit is a witness and testifies of Yeshua. Yeshua is a witness and was born to testify to the truth. He is the true and faithful martyr, the leader of our movement. Yeshua's apostles testified to what he did and wrote the Gospels as eyewitnesses, and were witnesses of his sufferings and resurrection.
