BELIEVE Yeshua or BELIEVE IN Jesus

Who Should Christians Believe?


Did Yeshua Want Beliefs or Actions?

Yeshua (the Jewish Jesus) uses specific forms to present his teachings and I will layout his words in those forms to help you get a feel for his patterns. For me, it not only makes his words easier to understand, it gives me a feel for what his personality may have been like. In this lesson he reveals a very important insight about the way he taught and acted throughout his life in Galilee and Judea. What did phrases like the one below mean to Yeshua.

You are the light of the world . . . .
Do not think that I came to destroy the Torah or the Prophets . . . .
Not one JOT or one TITTLE will be taken away . . . .
except your TZEDAQAH exceeds the TZEDAQAH of the scribes and Pharisees
