Izzy here. How are you? I had so much fun yesterday filming the first lesson actually looking at the Mishnah, and parallels between it and the New Testament! It's FREE so watch it here or at the bottom of this email, and share it with anyone who'd be interested.
Here's what you'll get in the lesson:
~Overview of Mishnah Tractate Brachot and its focus on what Yeshua called the "greatest commandment" ~Introduction to the two Gamaliels, one mentioned in the New Testament ~Connection between the title Rabban and the Aramaic phrase "Maranatha" used by Paul ~Ma'asim as used in the Mishnah and Acts of the Apostles...and why the "takanot and ma'asim of the Rabbis" aren't bad, as one Karaite teacher alleges ~Why disciples are called sons in Judaism and in the Gospel of John ~The Hebrew word for the sages, and what the acronym "chazal" means ~First instance of building a fence around the Torah
I hope you enjoy the rest of this digest. And if there's anything on your mind, just hit reply. We're here for you!
