Is the Bible really split into two pieces, or is it one big book telling the same story of God’s redemption and restoration of His creation? Conventional wisdom says it’s two books: the Old Testament, which deals with Israel, and the New Testament, which deals with the Church. Messianic and Hebrew Roots believers have a different understanding. There is only one Book, there is only one Author, and there is only one Word. The Word is Yeshua of Nazareth, the One we believe to be Messiah, and the One Who gives meaning to the entire Book, from Genesis to Revelation.
This is the message presented by Pete Rambo, my friend and fellow Hebrew Roots blogger. At the beginning of this year Pete began teaching a Sunday School class in a local church near his home in South Carolina. Using his considerable training and experience as a pastor, Messianic congregational leader, and Hebrew Roots scholar, Pete presents an astounding Scriptural case for the revelation of Messiah Yeshua from the earliest chapters of the Bible. You will be amazed at the connections he draws between well-known “Old Testament” (Tanach) accounts and the revelation of Yeshua in the “New Testament” (Apostolic Writings). The links below take you to audio recordings of Pete’s Sunday morning teachings. It is well worth the time to listen and test his presentations.
If it were just a matter of listening to sound teaching, that alone would be reason enough to click on these links. There is, however, a matter of far greater urgency. Pete touches on that in the last link in the list, “’Who Said?’ and ‘I AM the Truth’”. In these days the Lord is awakening His people in the church to things we have missed for nearly two thousand years. Namely, we have missed the Hebrew identity of our Savior, our faith, and ourselves. That is the reason for this Torah Awakening which is captivating Believers in Yeshua across the globe. There is an urgency in this: if we do not learn and keep the Commandments of the Lord, then we miss out on the fullness of our calling and the fullness of the blessings He desires to pour out on us and, through us, to the world. If we are indeed in the Last Days, then this is the time our King is restoring His Kingdom of Israel, and He is acquainting His subjects to with the need to walk in the obedience their professed allegiance to Him requires. That is the subject of another recent post Pete published which is reproduced in full below. Please read through this prayerfully.
