 Interpreting a Difficult Phrase


The Prophet Elijah and the Voice of the Spirit of Yahweh
by Ed Nelson

In 1 Kings 19:9-18 is the account of Yahweh’s appearing to Elijah in a cave at Mt. Horeb (Mt. Sinai), the desert mountain of Yahweh where the prophet spent an eventful, life-turning night. In verse 12 is a mysterious Hebrew phrase to which the whole narrative turns—qol demamah daqqa. What does it mean?

 Revisiting the Ancient Hebrew Meaning of ''Fasting''


Fasting: Appealing for God’s Mercy and Justice
by Ed Nelson

In Genesis Rabbah XXXIII:3 a story is told about the Jewish people fasting during a severe drought:

In the days of R. Tanhuma [fourth century], Israel had need of a fast [for the severe drought] so they went to him and requested: “Master, proclaim a fast.”

He proclaimed a fast, for one day, then a second day, and then a third, yet no rain fell.

 A Short History of Prayer Between 3:00-4:00 PM


Mankind, Divine Revelation and “the Evening Hour of Prayer”
by Ed Nelson

A curious and revealing account of the creation of Adam, the first human, is found in the Talmud, Tractate Sanhedrin 38a: “Our Rabbis taught: Adam was created [last of all beings] on the eve of the Sabbath.”

 The New Wine of the Scribes and Pharisees


Did Yeshua (Jesus) Reject Traditional Law?
by Ed Nelson

The esteemed, late Jewish professor, David Flusser, in his book, Jewish Sources in Early Christianity (MOD Books, 1989) suggests that Yeshua (Jesus) did not do “away with the rulings of the Sages and [thereby] put an emphasis only on the Written Law” (p. 23).

 Yeshua (Jesus) and


Yeshua (Jesus) on the Authority of Traditional Law:
Putting Yahweh to the Test

By Ed Nelson (www.ed-nelson.com)

To say that Yeshua (Jesus) of Nazareth and, later, his apostles were uncomfortable with the accepted authority of Jewish traditional law (qabbalah) in their day is an understatement. For Him, it was the acid in his voice, a constant irritant in his throat and the testing of his life. Seldom was He not far from decrying its pervasive influence upon the minds and decisions of the nation’s religious authorities—Sadducees, Pharisees and their scribes.

Did Yeshua (Jesus) Ever Speak the Name “Yahweh”?
A Study of Matthew 27:57-67
by Ed Nelson (www.ed-nelson.com)

Did Yeshua (Jesus) illegally speak the unutterable Name?

Likely, until Yeshua (Jesus) came to Jerusalem He never said the name of God publicly, at least where two or three hostile witnesses were in the group that could convict Him ahead of his time to die.

Did Yeshua (Jesus) Ever Speak the Name “Yahweh”?
A Study of Matthew 27:57-67
by Ed Nelson (www.ed-nelson.com)

The question whether Yeshua (Jesus) spoke the name Yahweh is commensurate with the question of whether He, according to his critics, committed blasphemy.

These two questions go together.

Due to the first century Jewish understanding of blasphemy as speaking the ineffable Name, i.e, by law, the unutterable Name outside prescribed boundaries, if He did one, then, in the eyes of his judges, He did the other.

 The Rise of Prophets


Prophets and Prophecy
by Ed Nelson

Ever wonder why prophets came to be in the first place? Why did Yahweh need prophets anyway? What was it that transformed their words from ordinary speech into prophecy? Did the prophets in the New Testament era have the same purpose and function as in the Old Testament (the Tanakh)? Are prophets and prophecies today cut out of the same biblical pattern, purpose and function, or are they somewhat different now?

 Ancient Answers Often Better


Who was Melchizedek?
by Ed Nelson

To many Bible readers, the priest Melchizedek remains a curious and mysterious figure. Speculation abounds (cf. Genesis 14:18; Psalm 110:4, Hebrews 5-7). Often suggested is that Melchizedek was a theophany, a divine appearance of the Messiah before his time. The biblical Hebraic worldview does not support this view.

Who, then, was Melchizedek according to the ancient biblical Hebraic worldview?

 Take the Poll


Are We in a Famine of the Word?

What do you think? Is a famine of the Word of God real today? Is biblical illiteracy a real problem among the general population, educators, leaders and, even, in the churches?

Is the prophet Amos' concern for his day your concern for our day?

“Behold, days are coming,” declares my Lord Yahweh, “when I will
send a famine on the land, not a famine for bread or a thirst for
water, but rather for hearing the words of Yahweh. People will
stagger from sea to sea and from the north even to the east. They
will go to and fro to seek the word of Yahweh, but they will not
find it. (Amos 8:11-12)

Your turn now. The poll is located on the lower left column.

 Five Movements in Biblical Worship


What is Biblical Worship Like?
by Ed Nelson

Are you aware that in our English Bibles, the Book of Revelation exceeds the Book of Psalms with specific references to the word worship? After all, isn’t the Psalms “the worship book of the Bible”? What should we make of this preponderance of the word worship in the last book of the Bible? The answer is worth considering.

 What it Means ''to Bind and to Loose''


Binding and Loosing
by Ed Nelson

For New Testament (Brit Chadashah) readers, in Matthew 16:13-19 we encounter an ancient Hebraic concept called “binding and loosing.” The story unfolds this way:

 ''Repairing the World'' (Tikkun Olam)


Repairing the World:
A Biblical Hebraic View of All Things Renewed
by Ed Nelson

How desperate the futility of having fixed what was broken, only to see it break again, if not worsen, while compelled to make it right. Sometimes we may die trying. Regardless, the end of the matter is a deep, groaning frustration.

 Jewish Sages Point to Messiah


Memra—the Word of Yahweh
by Ed Nelson

During the Second Temple Era a significant Messianic anticipation held by many Jewish sages is summarized in their usage and interpretation of the Aramaic word Memra. This word embodies the fullness of how “the Word of Yahweh” was understood and valued at the time in relationship to both Israel and the nations.

 Clean and Unclean (Part Three)


Clean and Unclean: A Lost Emphasis
by Ed Nelson

Part Three: The End of the Matter

In this final installment on the biblical subject of “clean and unclean,” the role of the Messiah Jesus [Yeshua] comes front and center in his work of “filling up” the Torah and fulfilling the hope found in the Prophets and Writings (the Tanakh, or Old Testament).
