Messianic Audio Teaching from Beth Tikkun Messianic Fellowship in Akron Ohio. These teachings feature author and congregational leader Grant Luton and guest speakers. Learn the depth of Messianic faith by uncovering insights from the Hebrew language, the ancient sages of Israel, and informed by the vibrant understanding of Yeshua and his Apostles.
In Noach, we explore two main topics: the wonderfully interconnected web of the Torah and the concept of grace. Via our first topic, we briefly compare such topics as the Ark and the Tower, Nimrod and the Antichrist, and the 70 nations and the 70 "apostles" mentioned in Luke. In addressing the topic of grace, we rethink the standard definition of "unmerited favor."
Vezot HaBrachah 2021
In this final Torah portion of the cycle, we look at Jacob's 12 sons in 6 pairs- a perspective suggested by Moses' blessing of the tribes- drawing out life lessons from this diverse group that makes up the body of Israel. We also carry over our thoughts regarding the twelve tribes to the four species bound together and waved during this Sukkot season of joy.
This week's teaching is all about the music - 3 songs in particular. We begin with a comparison of The Song of the Sea to The Song of Moses. Moving on, we draw out four questions from the curious fact that the Torah does not mention that The Song of Moses is sung. Answering these four questions brings us to The Song of the Lamb in the book of Revelation, and Mozart.
Topics in this week's teaching include relationship balance, the root of bitterness in our lives, three ways to "choose life," and Joshua as a picture of the Messiah.
Ki Tavo 2021
In Ki Tavo, the complementary portion to last week's Ki Teitzei, we drill down on the topic of fear of God, which is the foundation of respect for others. We look at a number of verses that illuminate fear of God, and we also hear a helpful reading from a work by R'Avigdor Miller which points us toward the key to fearing God: gratitude.
Ki Teitzei 2021
We take from Ki Teitzei a focus on the battle with Amalek. Central to our discussion is the idea that in order to respect others, we have to fight Amalek - a battle in the mind. Part of this battle is the cultivation of a thirst for God and having Him always on our lips.

Like your Dayton listener, I too have learned a lot. My favorite teacher.
Listening from Dayton!
Great teachings. I’ve learned a lot.
From Milk to Meat!
Beth Tikkun is the real deal! Grant’s teaching is superb. You will find every level of teaching you need. Grant teaches HaShem’s Word in the manner you need. If you need milk, Grant will make it so. But if you’re ready for a much deeper teaching, then you will find it at Beth Tikkun.
Tikkun means to fix or rectify. Tikkun olam is a Jewish concept meaning to fix or heal the world. Beth Tikkun teaches proper Torah interpretation as well as whole scripture. Grant teaches the WHOLE scripture. You will learn the deeper meaning behind the scriptures you thought you knew.
If you are looking for correct teaching, then you will really appreciate the teaching. I believe G_d is drawing more and more people to Messianic Judaism and is using Synagogues like Beth Tikkun to feed H_s people good food.
Grant is humble and does not refer to himself as anything other than a brother who, in being obedient to G_d, is dispensing the Word as food. I’m so glad I found this podcast.
