Forgiveness of Sins

Take a few moments to consider how you would answer the following questions.
(1) How many of your sins do you want God to forgive?
(2) How many sins of the person you hate the most are you willing to forgive?
(3) What does that person you hate the most have to do for you to forgive him or her?
(4) What if God required you to do those same things to receive forgiveness?
How do you think Jesus would answer those questions? He used techniques like this to make important points.

Y Team Guidelines for Bible Study Gatherings and Discussions

Learning about the Jesus of history, the one we call Yeshua, transforms our understanding of the one over two billion people today call Jesus Christ. I have been researching and studying the Jesus of history and his words from English translations, Greek manuscripts and reconstructed Hebrew texts for over 30 years now with scholars, professors, rabbis, ministers and a lot of sincere students of the Bible. Over the years I created guidelines and models for the people that I study with to follow and use when we gather to study the words of the Bible. They make our Bible Study gatherings very different from other Bible study groups.

The Handbook of the Kingdom of Heaven Movement

If you had been a member of Yeshua’s group in the first century, there is little doubt that you would have heard Yeshua quote from and teach the following words. They are found in your Bible in ten chapters of Isaiah, chapters 51 through 61. I would like to suggest that you first read the version below and get a feel for what hearing Yeshua read it would have been like. You can use the online version, but it would be even better if you print the pdf version.

Getting the “Jameses” in the Bible Straight

Few readers of the English Bible realize that the name “James” actually comes from the Hebrew name Jacob or Yaaqov, which adds to the confusion over the various “Jameses” mentioned in the New Testament. There is, of course, Jacob the Patriarch, grandson of Abraham; James the Apostle, the fisherman brother of John and one of the two sons of Zebedee (Mark 4:21); “James the Less,” and several others. Ironically, the most obscure, and surely the most important James as “James the brother of Jesus,” known subsequently as “James the Just.” takes a bit of analysis.
