What Did the Fox Say?

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio this Monday, July 30:

The Barking Fox is an odd name for a blog – especially one that has so much spiritual content. Why would anyone pick such a name? We have the answer on this edition of The Remnant Road!

Yes, our guest this week is our very own Al McCarn. You have heard him as host of the show for the last three years. Now you have an opportunity to hear his story. He’s talked about growing up Southern Baptist in Alabama, about his military career, and about his dog, Blue, but how did he get from there to writing and speaking about Torah? And why is he motivated to help others understand their Hebraic identity? What are his hopes and expectations about the prophesied restoration of all Israel under the reign of Messiah, Son of David? What is he doing about it, and what can you do to help?

Join us as Mike and Barry ask Al some penetrating questions. You might laugh at his answers, and you might cry, but you won’t be bored!

The Remnant Road, with co-hosts Al McCarn, Mike Clayton, Barry Phillips, and Hanoch Young is the Monday edition of the Hebrew Nation Morning Show.  You can listen live at 11:00–1:00 EST, 8:00-10:00 PST at http://hebrewnationonline.com/, and on podcast at any time.

Going Up to Zion

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio this Monday, May 14:

Where is the New Covenant written? In Jeremiah 31! There are many surprising things in that New Covenant chapter, such as this promise:

For there shall be a day, that the watchmen upon the mount Ephraim shall cry, Arise ye, and let us go up to Zion unto the Lord our God. For thus saith the Lord; Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations: publish ye, praise ye, and say, O Lord, save thy people, the remnant of Israel. . . Hear the word of the Lord, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock. (Jeremiah 31:6-7, 10 KJV)

In reading this, one might get the impression that “New Covenant Believers” are people who look for Israel’s complete restoration.

Actually, that’s the truth! Jews have looked for the restoration of Israel for centuries, and the world has been amazed in the last 70 years to see that promise come into focus through the rebirth of the nation of Israel. Christians have looked for the restoration as well, but it is only in recent years that many have come to understand that they also are part of this covenant nation whom the Lord is regathering to become one people once again under Messiah Son of David.

So what happens when a group of people get so excited about this message that they form a congregation to proclaim this gospel of the Kingdom? That’s why we have asked Craig and Jan O’Dell to join us! In 2006, they joined with several others to establish Gates to Zion Ministries (http://gatestozion.net/), a Hebraic Roots fellowship meeting in West Columbia, South Carolina.

The O’Dells have much to share with us about the joys and challenges of serving a congregation focused on Israel’s Messiah and the restoration of His kingdom. One of those joys is going to Israel to meet and interact with the people and pray through the Land. Having just returned from such a trip, they bring a good report that you will be blessed to hear!

From Georgia to Jerusalem

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio this Monday, April 16:

People who spend any time in the mountains of North Georgia soon learn what it means to be in America’s Bible Belt. The deep evangelical Christian roots of the region speak to a very real faith that has shaped the American South for over 200 years.

So what happens when those evangelical Christian roots encounter the Torah Awakening? Our guest this week can help us answer that question. He has lived through such an encounter!

Tom Eubank is the pastor at House of Scripture in Jasper, Georgia. He and his wife, Cornelia, were among a group of Christians in their area who had awakened to the Torah, realized its applicability to followers of Yeshua (Jesus), and decided to begin meeting on the Sabbath. From their humble beginning in 2012, House of Scripture has grown to a congregation serving as part of an expanding community of Yeshua’s Torah-honoring disciples.

Tom and Cornelia also took part in the recent Connect to Israel tour, and the Third B’ney Yosef Congress. Their story is another chapter in good reports from the Promised Land that we are eager to hear!

Documenting Redemption: A Review of Ten From the Nations: Torah Awakening Among Non-Jews, by Rivkah Lambert Adler

The history of humanity is filled with mothers in all eras and all cultures saying to their children the equivalent of, “I don’t care if you don’t like how that tastes. Eat it; it’s good for you.” In my case, it was broccoli, but I can imagine children around the world sitting glumly in front of their food as their mothers tell them they won’t grow up big and strong unless they finish their borscht, ceviche, pho, or ugali. God created mothers to be right about such things, which is why each generation survives and (depending on the degree to which they listen to Mom) thrives.

This principle works just as well regarding nourishment for the mind, soul, and spirit as for the body. That is why those who persevere in reading and studying even when the subject matter is uncomfortable tend to come out much better in the end – smarter, wiser, more tolerant, and better able to cooperate with others in the interest of a greater good. Rivkah Lambert Adler has provided rich nourishment of this sort in her book, Ten From the Nations: Torah Awakening Among Non-Jews.

The groundbreaking aspect of Ten From the Nations is that Adler is among the first (perhaps the first) Jewish scholars to document the global phenomenon of Christians coming to an appreciation of Torah. She describes the phenomenon this way:

All over the world, current and former Christians are becoming aware of Torah. They are learning about, and implementing, what most of the world thinks of as Jewish practices, including celebrating Shabbat [Sabbath] and the Biblical holidays. They are refraining from eating pork and shellfish. They are studying Torah and seeing the Land of Israel, and especially the return of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel, in a new light. They are building positive relationships with the Jewish people.

Sukkotin’

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio on Monday, October 9:
What are you doing for Sukkot – the Feast of Tabernacles? The Jewish people have celebrated Sukkot for over three thousand years – finding creative and meaningful ways to mark this special appointment with the Creator. The Torah Awakening among non-Jews has now added a number of new traditions from Ephraimites and others around the world who have begun to take seriously the commandment to mark this time with great joy:
You shall observe the Feast of Tabernacles seven days, when you have gathered from your threshing floor and from your winepress. And you shall rejoice in your feast, you and your son and your daughter, your male servant and your female servant and the Levite, the stranger and the fatherless and the widow, who are within your gates. Seven days you shall keep a sacred feast to the Lord your God in the place which the Lord chooses, because the Lord your God will bless you in all your produce and in all the work of your hands, so that you surely rejoice. (Deuteronomy 16:13-15)
In this show, Mike and Al guide us through a tour of Sukkot at two different locations in the Southeastern USA. You may be surprised at who turns up as our guests!

Ten From the Nations

Here’s what’s coming on Hebrew Nation Radio on Monday, October 2:

One of the end-times prophecies that is getting more attention these days is from Zechariah:

Thus says the Lord of hosts, “In those days ten men from all the nations will grasp the garment of a Jew, saying, ‘Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.'” (Zechariah 8:23)

What exactly does this mean? Are all these people from the nations going to become Jewish? Or does it have something to do with the Torah Awakening among non-Jews? Why are all these people from the nations coming to an appreciation of the Torah, and is there some connection to the final redemption?

Pondering these questions motivated Rivkah Lambert Adler to compile a book about it. The book is called, appropriately, Ten from the Nations: Torah Awakening Among Non-Jews. In it she presents testimonies from over 40 contributors, most of whom are non-Jews who have begun to observe the Torah. Rivkah’s book is one of the first attempts to investigate this awakening – not so much to explain it, but to document the breadth and depth of what is happening worldwide. She joins us in the second hour of the show to tell us what she has learned.

Ten From the Nations will be published in October 2017. Sign up from email updates to learn about when and where it will be available!
