Ep. 67 | 3 Bible Study Mistakes You Don’t Want to Make

They say “a little knowledge is a dangerous thing,” and nowhere is this more true than when it comes to using Bible study tools. While a seminary degree is hardly necessary to qualify someone to handle the Scriptures, one still needs to understand Bible tool basics in order to properly use them. In today's episode, Kevin demonstrates three major mistakes that people make with Bible tools, specifically with Hebrew and Greek lexicons. WATCH ON YOUTUBE •

Ep. 66 | Are You Being Messianic JEWISH or Messianic JUDAISM-ISH?

Why is traditional, Rabbinic Judaism so deeply embedded in the culture and expression of the typical Messianic Jewish synagogue service and community? Why have Messianics adopted Judaism in this way? Does it actually make us better disciples of Messiah? In what way does Judaism really support and reinforce the Jewishness of a Messianic Jew? In this episode, Kevin explains the vast difference between being Jewish and being "Judaismish," and expresses concern about the danger that relying on non-Messianic Judaism creates for the faithful keeping of Scripture.

Ep. 65 | Go & Make Converts? Why Discipleship Is Dead

Yeshua gave us one main job: to make disciples. So why do so many Christians and Messiah-believers today look and act just like the world? Why don't they more closely resemble Yeshua? Why hasn't the generational passing down of doctrines and traditions been enough? In this episode, Kevin explains why the Body of Messiah has failed to make true disciples of Yeshua, and reveals what we need to start doing right now to fulfill and restore the great commission of discipleship.

Ep. 64 | 5 Things Most Every Jewish Person Doesn’t Know

It might come as a surprise, but most Jewish people actually know very little about the Bible. Today's Jewish people have grown increasingly secular and humanistic, with no standard frame of reference where it comes to spiritual or religious topics. But despite the vast differences in beliefs among Jews, one thing you can almost always count on is that Jewish people are highly unlikely to know is the truth about the most important Jew who ever lived: Yeshua. In this episode, Kevin discusses five biblical facts that most every Jewish doesn't know—but needs to—in order to learn the truth about the true, Jewish Messiah. WATCH ON YOUTUBE •

Ep. 63 | Not for Harm: How God Prunes the Body of Messiah

Could God be pruning the Body of Messiah? Would the Father ever separate believers from the vine of Yeshua? If so, why? Is the shrinking Body of Messiah evidence that God is at work? In this episode, Kevin digs into Yeshua's words about pruning and bearing fruit, and then offers an encouragement to today's struggling and shrinking Body of believers. WATCH ON YOUTUBE •

Ep. 62 | Divorce & Remarriage: What the Bible Does (& Doesn’t) Say

God hates divorce, and the Bible has nothing even close to good to say about it. So why is no-fault divorce rampant in the Body of Messiah today? Why do believers allow their marriages to be torn apart by it? In this episode, Kevin lays out and explains what the Scriptures actually say about divorce and remarriage, then offers some biblically-based advice for believers who have been divorced, have been involved in remarriage, or are right now contemplating either one.

Ep. 61 | Why I Say “Yeshua” Not “YAHSHUA”

Many Messianic believers, rather than call the Messiah "Jesus," call Him by His Hebrew name "Yeshua." But some Messianics instead call Him something different, such as "Yahshua" or "Yahushua," incorporating the Sacred Name of God, יהוה. Why do they pronounce it like this, and can we know definitively which way is correct? In this episode, Kevin digs into the Hebrew to show us the correct pronunciation of the Messiah's name. Which is it? "Yeshua" or "YAHSHUA"? WATCH ON YOUTUBE •

Ep. 60 | Should We Say God’s Sacred Name יהוה YHVH?

The pronunciation of the Sacred Name of God—the Tetragrammaton, "Yahweh"—has been obscured in the Hebrew text of the Bible. Yet some say that not only can the Name be restored, it must be, because pronouncing it is necessary for salvation. In this episode, Kevin discusses this view of the Sacred Name and analyzes the Hebrew to determine if the correct pronunciation of יהוה has truly been lost. WATCH ON YOUTUBE •

In this episode, Kevin demonstrates how to discern and apply biblical patterns and unwritten principles that God has implicitly encoded into the living word of Scripture. WATCH ON YOUTUBE •

Ep. 57 | How to Do Biblical “Church”… WITHOUT a Church! (Called-Forth, Pt. 7)

The "church" of God—Yeshua's "Called-Forth"—was never meant to be based on form or structure, but on us: the people. In the Scriptures, we've been given a biblical pattern that reveals how we are supposed to work and function together as the Body of Messiah, and it looks nothing like "church" (or "Messianic synagogue") as usual. In this episode, Kevin wraps up his 7-part series about biblical "church" with a candid word of exhortation, and a vivid sketch of what our gatherings and communities could look like... if we actually followed the Scriptures.

Ep. 56 | Communion: What the Bible Really Says

Communion is one of the main sacramental rites of Christianity, holding a deeply personal, spiritual significance for millions of believers worldwide for generations. But is the ordinance of communion (or the eucharist) actually in the Bible? Did Jesus really institute a communion ceremony during His last supper?

What if our ideas for why the church even exists has been completely and hopelessly wrong?

Ep. 54 | How the Book of Ya’aqov (James) Can Transform Your Faith

One of the most important books of the New Testament is, sadly, also one of the most overlooked: the book of James. Hidden all the way near the back in most Bible versions, James doesn’t tend to be a favorite. Maybe people just don’t find him inspirational enough. Maybe they don’t make it that far in their Bible reading. But when we overlook James, we undercut one of the most fundamental aspects of our faith. In this episode, Kevin champions the foundational nature of the book of Ya'aqov (James), and makes a case for how its fundamental teachings can transform your faith. WATCH ON YOUTUBE •

Ep. 53 | WHEN the Biblical Church Should Meet (Called-Forth, Pt. 5)

Most active Christians and Messianics make it a priority to attend at least one Saturday or Sunday worship service. But should that weekly meeting really be our goal? Does participating in a once-a-week worship service truly reflect the Bible’s example for when we should gather ourselves together? In this episode, Kevin looks at what the Scriptures say regarding when and how often believers are supposed to meet, then considers how this should reshape the way we think about the reason and frequency for gathering as the Body of Messiah.

Ep. 52 | WHERE the Biblical Church Would Meet (Called-Forth, Pt. 4)

When most people think of "church," they envision a building, an assembly hall, or some other kind of physical structure. But what if what that church building not only isn't "church," but isn't actually prescribed anywhere in the Bible? What if the biblical concept of church is far more simple and natural than that? In this episode, Kevin compares the idea of church buildings to where the biblical Body of Messiah actually met together, and then explores how the places where today's believers gather can better reflect the values and patterns of Scripture.

Do they expand or enlarge Israel? Are Gentile believers now Israel?

The true "church" is not the buildings, but the people. And yet, the living organism of Yeshua's Body that is described in the Bible—of which we as believers are its members—has been replaced over time by complex organization and institutional structure. In this episode, Kevin takes us on a Scriptural survey that reveals the true functioning of the Body of Messiah, and exhorts us all to get back to the simple, organic, biblical structure of "church."

Ep. 44 | Reaching God Without Religion

When believers in Yeshua first come in to a Messianic or Hebraic understanding of the faith, it can be an exciting and spiritually invigorating time. But as you begin to navigate this new, unfamiliar territory, it can also be confusing. Is this a Jewish faith? Is it Christian? Is it somewhere in the middle? And despite having moved on from one brand of religion, you end up just exchanging it for another one, mistaking it for a “true faith” in God. In this episode, Kevin addresses this blind spot that many believers have whenever they begin traveling a new spiritual path, and suggests a way to successfully reach God without religion.

It has been an issue in modern Messianic Jewish congregations basically since the beginning: many Gentile congregants have felt like second-class citizens in part because they've heard the often-repeated refrain, "to the Jew first." In this episode, Kevin looks at the Scriptures to determine if this possible doctrine of favoritism has any basis in Scripture, and, if so, whether it is compatible with the Bible's call for unity between Jews and Gentiles.

Ep. 11 | Does the Bible really mean what it plainly says?

Sometimes we don’t particularly like what the Scriptures say, or, for some reason, we think there must be more to it—that it can’t be that simple and straightforward. And instead of just asking the question “What do the Scriptures say,” we start asking ourselves, “Is that really what that Scripture says?” or, “Is that ALL that that Scripture says?” And our search for the truth becomes an exercise in misinformation. In this episode, Kevin teaches the importance of accepting the plain sense of Scripture.
