I am a lifelong disciple of Jesus (Yeshua) of Nazareth, an avid student of the Bible, a devoted husband and father, a 29-year veteran of the United States Army, and a historian who connects people with their own stories.
The most powerful tool a child of God has is our testimony of life in Him. We hear that in the story Nathan Harmon shares about his journey through a very dark and tragic episode that our Creator used as the means of redemption that continues to inspire everyone who hears it. It is not only the story of Nathan’s personal redemption, but how he began to understand the fullness of his identity in Messiah Yeshua.
David Jones and Barry Phillips carry this theme of identity forward in their midrash on the topic of “National Redemption,” and Kelly Ferrari Mills and Jimmie Black beautifully proclaim the good news of redemption in their musical offerings.
 March 6 is Shabbat Parah, the Sabbath of the Red Heifer, which is observed on the Shabbat before Shabbat HaChodesh. As a reminder to begin preparations for Pesach, the traditional reading is Numbers 19:1-22, which explains the purpose of the red heifer in purification of the nation, and Ezekiel 36:16-38, which is a prophecy of Israel’s purification and restoration in the latter days.
What comes next after learning how to hunt and fish? How about hunting and fishing better!
We can always improve, and that’s especially important regarding the things related to the Kingdom of Heaven. Nathan Harmon brings that into perspective in the context of the Torah Awakening. This phenomenon in the church has been gaining momentum for several decades, so where do we go from here? As Nathan explains, we should be giving serious attention to sharing this message with our family and friends in the traditional churches in ways that they can understand and receive.
Two musicians who have been sharing the Torah Awakening insights for many years are Will Spires and Jimmie Black. They are our musical guests in this show, and along with them Barry Phillips and David Jones share their thoughts on the topic of “Disciple and Love.”
Choosing life rather than death sounds simple enough. Who would have a problem making such an obvious choice? But is it really that simple when the choice we make concerns the intrinsic value of another human being – especially when that person is someone whose value may be questionable in our eyes?
