Jesus Declared All Foods Clean

( 1 MP3 track, 41 minutes / 41.5 MB )

Pillars, Allies, CompanionsAugust 13, 2019

A Closer Look at Mark 7. Did Jesus cancel the Bible’s dietary laws? Conventional interpretations of Mark 7 boldly declare that Yeshua revoked the Jewish dietary laws when “he declared all foods clean.” On that basis, even Jewish Christians are encouraged to ignore the Bible’s instructions regarding permitted and prohibited foods. But that interpretation raises serious difficulties and undermines Yeshua’s teaching about the ongoing authority of the Torah.

How to Curse Your Enemy, Parashat Balak

( 1 MP3 track, 30 minutes / 26.6 MB )

Pillars, Allies, CompanionsJuly 21, 2019

Throughout the holy Scriptures we see that words have power. Parashat Balak provides an illustrative example of that power. Hired by King Balak to curse Israel, the prophet Balaam instead spoke blessings over God’s people. Just as the LORD turned King Balak’s curse into a blessing, the LORD often takes a curse and turns it into a blessing for those who love him. In How to Curse Your Enemy, First Fruits of Zion Education Director, D. Thomas Lancaster, recounts the unique nature of Shabbat Balak in the year 2015 when a particular curse was turned into a blessing.

Hills to Die On

( 1 MP3 track, 61 minutes / 58.1 MB )

Pillars, Allies, CompanionsMay 15, 2019

First Fruits of Zion is established on being a unified teaching ministry within Messianic Judaism, bringing people together from different backgrounds to study the Jewish roots of faith in Yeshua. So why is Torah Club so focused on weeding out certain theologies such as One Law, Two-House, and Sacred Name? In Hills to Die On, Toby Janicki takes us through each of these errant theologies and explains why fighting against each one is a “hill to die on.” Each of these ideologies can be linked back to replacement theology, the roots of which run deeper than most of us can imagine. Gentiles in Messiah must, as Paul said, “not become arrogant against the root” and realize that they are partnering with Israel in a kingdom mission.
