We have posted on this page some interesting studies in the Word of Yah, out of many that have been presented through the years to our Messianic congregation. These are important subjects for believers to understand more about, including articles on the Feast Days, the Sacred Name, Yah's Kingdom, the New Covenant, and much more!
Does the New Covenant abolish the Old Covenant and its Torah principles? How are laws and commands from the Tenach (Old Testament) to be practiced by believers today? Here is the answer from the Scriptures.
A list of Scripture passages from the Tenach (Old Testament) which prophesied of the coming Messiah, taken from famous Jewish Messianic author Alfred Edersheim's writings.
A comprehensive list of Scripture passages from the Br't Hadashah (New Testament) with all of Yahshuah's commands detailing our duties as His followers.
It is popular today among Messianic believers to refer to our Heavenly Father by the name of "Yahweh," but this was a later derivation and corruption of the original pre-exilic Name used by kings and prophets in ancient Israel. Although these facts are little-known by laymen, we quote a variety of leading Hebrew scholars who inform us on what that Sacred Name actually was.
When was Messiah born? Most Christians believe that December 25, 4 B.C. was the date of the nativity, but in this historical survey, ten early historians provide evidence that September, 2 B.C. is the correct date. This information is important as a crucial clue to the actual date of the Crucifixion and of the end date of Daniel's Seventy Weeks..
An exposition of Daniel 9:24-27, showing that the 70 weeks, or 490 years, of Daniel's prophecy was fulfilled in a complete block of time ending with the Crucifixion and death of the Messiah in 33 A.D. This is another proof of the exact fulfillment of Biblical prophecy to the very year.
The Kingdom of Yah is shown to be an everlasting Kingdom throughout human history, not limited to the Millennium, but it comes to full fruition in stages of fulfillment.
Has the modern church forgotten and forsaken its Hebrew roots in the Scriptures? Here is proof that the early Church began upon a Hebrew foundation and obedience to Torah principles.
The first Biblical Patriarch is associated with three locations in the ancient mid-east. Where did the family of Abraham originate? Why did Terah, Abraham's father, leave Ur of Chaldees? Was the family original home in Harran? The surprising answers are here.
This prophetic vision in Ezekiel chapter four has been called the most mysterious and incomprehensible of all the prophetic pronouncements he made, according to several leading Biblical commentaries. Yet an understanding of Biblical history and prophecy provides a clear and definite answer to this important prophecy.
This interesting prophecy of Ezekiel chapter 16 has been long ignored by many Biblical expositors. Who are the three sisters and what is the message the prophet is conveying? Is the ancient wicked city of Sodom, the epitome of evil and unrighteousness, to be restored to its former self? Why would that be? When would that be? We show that the modern expositors have missed something here!
A significant issue for Jews, Christians, and Messianic believers is the rampant diversity of American Jews. The recent population survey of American Jewry by the Pew Research Center shows that seventy-nine percent of American Jews marry Gentiles. Is there a future for Judaism?

Should Christians and Messianic believers keep the Hanukkah holiday? Did Messiah really keep it as some claim? Should we keep Yah's festivals or man's holidays? Here we document the surprising background and little-known "rest of the story" behind this recently popular holiday.
The story of the connection between our American holiday and the paganism of ancient Palestine. Few Christians realize that the spiritual roots of these popular modern festivities derive from the same paganism that was earnestly fought by the prophets of Israel. A Palestinian connection with the "Yule" Christmas holiday is also documented.
What does the Bible really have to say about the issue of homosexuality? What is the Scriptural definition of unnatural sin? Here is an honest and reasonable analysis of the four primary New Testament passages dealing with this issue.
An introductory study of the Tabernacle furnishings and their historic and prophetic significance.
How do we calculate the date of the Feast of Atonement and the New Moon?
