Focusing on what Unites Jews and Evangelicals!

united-hands-cross-star-of-david-280x210

For as long as Jews and Christians have existed, there has been an obvious tension between both groups too often resulting in the ostracizing, force conversions, expulsions and deaths. Both sides have become very good at itemizing what divides them and dwelling on the differences.

My Review of Noah – which I have not seen!

I’ll let you know what I think about the Noah movie after I read a review by someone else who hasn’t seen it.”

- Tim Hawkins

Full confession: I have not seen the Noah movie yet, but I probably will catch it later, when it appears in the dollar theaters.

As you may or may not know, I have been promoting the study of Noah – the Scriptural Noah – through my website and recent teachings over the past few months. I work as a Bible teacher and pulpit minister at Adat Yeshua Messianic Synagogue, and as it turned out, the Noah movie was being released during the same time when I happen to have been teaching through Genesis each Saturday in an ongoing study of the Bible.

How Yale Killed God, Again

Yale killing Truth

It’s no secret that theology proper – the formal study of God – is an unwelcomed pursuit in the hallowed halls of today’s upper academia.  We have lived in a science driven world since the Enlightenment of the 18th century, and as any self-respecting rationalist can tell you, religion is not a suitable topic for investigation, dissertation, or the laboratory.  No, indeed. We have moved beyond God, and if the truth be told, the larger public sphere itself is no place for superstition.  Read More
