Why is traditional, Rabbinic Judaism so deeply embedded in the culture and expression of the typical Messianic Jewish synagogue service and community? Why have Messianics adopted Judaism in this way? Does it actually make us better disciples of Messiah? In what way does Judaism really support and reinforce the Jewishness of a Messianic Jew? In this episode, Kevin explains the vast difference between being Jewish and being “Judaismish,” and expresses concern about the danger that relying on non-Messianic Judaism creates for the faithful keeping of Scripture.

Yeshua gave us one main job: to make disciples. So why do so many Christians and Messiah-believers today look and act just like the world? Why don’t they more closely resemble Yeshua? Why hasn’t the generational passing down of doctrines and traditions been enough? In this episode, Kevin explains why the Body of Messiah has failed to make true disciples of Yeshua, and reveals what we need to start doing right now to fulfill and restore the great commission of discipleship.

It might come as a surprise, but most Jewish people actually know very little about the Bible. Today’s Jewish people have grown increasingly secular and humanistic, with no standard frame of reference where it comes to spiritual or religious topics. But despite the vast differences in beliefs among Jews, one thing you can almost always count on is that Jewish people are highly unlikely to know is the truth about the most important Jew who ever lived: Yeshua. In this episode, Kevin discusses five biblical facts that most every Jewish doesn’t know—but needs to—in order to learn the truth about the true, Jewish Messiah.

Could God be pruning the Body of Messiah? Would the Father ever separate believers from the vine of Yeshua? If so, why? Is the shrinking Body of Messiah evidence that God is at work? In this episode, Kevin digs into Yeshua’s words about pruning and bearing fruit, and then offers an encouragement to today’s struggling and shrinking Body of believers.

God hates divorce, and the Bible has nothing even close to good to say about it. So why is no-fault divorce rampant in the Body of Messiah today? Why do believers allow their marriages to be torn apart by it? In this episode, Kevin lays out and explains what the Scriptures actually say about divorce and remarriage, then offers some biblically-based advice for believers who have been divorced, have been involved in remarriage, or are right now contemplating either one.

Many Messianic believers, rather than call the Messiah “Jesus,” call Him by His Hebrew name “Yeshua.” But some Messianics instead call Him something different, such as “Yahshua” or “Yahushua,” incorporating the Sacred Name of God, יהוה. Why do they pronounce it like this, and can we know definitively which way is correct? In this episode, Kevin digs into the Hebrew to show us the correct pronunciation of the Messiah’s name. Which is it? “Yeshua” or “YAHSHUA”?

The pronunciation of the Sacred Name of God—the Tetragrammaton, “Yahweh”—has been obscured in the Hebrew text of the Bible. Yet some say that not only can the Name be restored, it must be, because pronouncing it is necessary for salvation. In this episode, Kevin discusses this view of the Sacred Name and analyzes the Hebrew to determine if the correct pronunciation of יהוה has truly been lost.

The Bible often plainly communicates how God expects us to think and act. But what if the Scriptures don’t speak directly to a specific thing we’re dealing with, or if they appear to be silent about a particular topic altogether? In this episode, Kevin demonstrates how to discern and apply biblical patterns and unwritten principles that God has implicitly encoded into the living word of Scripture.

If you thought biblical belief in the Body of Messiah today was slowly declining, you’d be mistaken—it’s nearly extinct, and it’s happening fast. In this episode, Kevin looks at recent research that exposes the almost non-existent biblical worldview in America, and then offers a way forward for the faithful few who remain.
