    Love and Torah | Part 22

    Love and Torah | Part 22

    Love and Torah – what’s love got to do with it? This study series is based on the “Two Great Commands” – love Yahweh and love your neighbor.

    There’s a lot of discussion out there between the different groups who claim to believe in the Creator and His Messiah, but have completely different perspectives from their belief. Almost all of the groups believe it is all about love, so the question becomes what does that look like? What is the action to be taken? In this teaching series, Love & Torah, Rabbi Steve Berkson brings clarity from the Scripture the answer to that question.

    Now that we’ve finished going through Psalm 119 where the focus is on the concept of loving Elohim, Rabbi Berkson now starts explaining the concept of loving each other.

    The Gospel of John chapter 15 provides a great place begin this journey as we see Messiah Yeshua is teaching His disciples using some agricultural metaphors to get His message into their hearts about the relationship He expects.

    • What is the “gap” between the Gardener and the Vine?
    • What is pruning? How does it apply to you?
    • If Messiah Yeshua referred to Himself as the “True Vine”, could there be false vines?
    • Why did Messiah Yeshua say, “Stay in Me…”?
    • Why is the verse (15:3) about being clean because of the Word in there?
    • What is a direct-download from the Ruach?
    • Do you need to pray before doing anything?
    • What is “Vertical Awareness”?

    Rabbi Berkson once again dissects the words in these passages so that you will have a deeper understanding of what Yah expects of you, so that you can do it and receive the blessings.

    Afterburn | Thoughts, Q&A on Love and Torah | Part 21

    AFTERBURN:
    Some of the topics covered are:
    How are the Fruit of the Spirit connected to life struggles?
    The problem with being “lukewarm”…
    Why did King David call himself a “lost sheep”?
    Should I watch Christmas movies with my non-Torah-Observant spouse?
    If Torah observance “keeps us safe”, why were the Prophets and Apostles murdered?

    … and much more!

    Afterburn: also known in the world of fitness as the “afterburn effect”, simply put; The more intense the exercise, the more oxygen your body consumes afterward.

    The same could be true as you build up your spiritual self. After an intense teaching session, you need answers as more thoughts and questions consume you in your spiritual growth.

    Rabbi Steve Berkson, director of MTOI, provides an opportunity for the Afterburn to take place by additional thoughts and insight about what he just taught as well as answering questions from the local congregation and those watching the live stream.

    Love and Torah | Part 21

    Love and Torah | Part 21

    Love and Torah – what’s love got to do with it? This study series is based on the “Two Great Commands” – love Yahweh and love your neighbor.

    Continuing in Psalm 119 beginning in verse 159 Rabbi Steve Berkson exposes a ‘truth’ in what King David has been writing over and over pleading with Elohim that He would “revive” him because he “loves” the commandments of Elohim. Do you need to be revived?

    Romans 10:4 says in some translations that “Messiah is the end of the Law for righteousness…”, but does this mean the termination of the Law? Or does the word we read as “end” have a different meaning?

    Does forever really mean forever? Rabbi Berkson has a problem with the idea of forever as he explains…

    There are things that happen in your everyday life to prove the Brit Hadasha (New Testament) is true. Do you know what they are?

    As you take the steps to become like Messiah Yeshua, what is the strongest influence in your life?

    Rabbi Berkson once again dissects the words in these passages so that you will have a deeper understanding of what Yah expects of you, so that you can do it and receive the blessings.

    Love and Torah | Part 20

    Love and Torah – what’s love got to do with it? This study series is based on the “Two Great Commands” – love Yahweh and love your neighbor.

    This teaching continues in Psalm 119, verse 150 where Rabbi Steve Berkson expounds on “Those who pursue mischief…” as those who have a different agenda than Yahweh, and are far from His Torah. These are those who lack an intimate relationship with The Creator. These draw near with their lips, but their heart is far from Him. They do what is right in their own eyes.

    Is there a difference between ‘mercy’ and ‘grace/favor’? Rabbi Berkson touches on this topic so that there’s a clear understanding.

    King David the psalmist wrote about those who “have not sought Your Laws.”, and called them “the wrong ones”. Do you seek His Laws?

    Lashon Hara is Hebrew for ‘evil tongue’. Many people are familiar with this term, but are confused as to what it actually means. Rabbi Berkson unpacks the meaning of this term and how it can affect your life and the life of those around you.

    This teaching contains some of the best life-coaching to be found as Rabbi Berkson wonderfully delves into the intricate world of human relationships – dating, marriage and raising children. He points out relationship attributes such as ‘default expectancy’ and ‘understood expectancy’. Do you know what these attributes are and how they may affect you?

    Rabbi Berkson once again dissects the words in these passages so that you will have a deeper understanding of what Yah expects of you, so that you can do it and receive the blessings.

Very thorough teachings

This is by far the best podcast for Torah observant Christians.

Anointed

Rabbi Steve Berkson is an anointed teacher of truth. Has provided a wide variety of great resources for the spiritual growth and development of Torah observant believers. His truth is hard to digest only if you are not aligned with the will of the Father. Shalom Shalom

Puzzled

I don’t know how someone who teaches the Torah and old covenant which is ProJewish or Hebrew is anti Semitic. That’s usually applies to Westerners or places where Charismatic Christians, who mostly have Greek interpretation of scripture,rather than Hebraic interpretation & understanding.
I certainly know YHWH is a controversial name by itself, He was also wherever He went and didn’t have to speak. This explains why some people feel the need or temptation to attack the character of a teacher of the word. The word is living and shines light on the hidden darkness....Great teaching.....
