Reading about Y'Shua our Messiah in the Gospels

Why do you believe in what is written in the Apostolic Scriptures (New Testament)? This is a question that we may bump into when we speak to people that have not accepted Y’Shua as their Messiah. When asked to defend what you believe in, do you have the information at hand? Being prepared is half the battle. In this article we will help you get these facts ready. We will look at written proof of Jewish and Roman authors. We will also see what archeologists have found to show that Y’Shua did really exist as man on earth as recorded in the Gospels.

Dead Sea Scroll from the Essene community at Qumran

We have recently had a lot of exposure to a group of people called the Essenes. The majority view at the moment states that they were the people who lived at Wadi Qumran. They are believed to be the owners of the scrolls that were found in the Judean desert. They are also known for the fact that they did not use the lunar calendar but rather a solar calendar. This makes it clear that they did not follow the norm of the Pharisees and Sadducees of their time. Except for these two facts, what else do we know about this group? Did they have truth that we should be aware of? We will also investigate the potential links between Y´Shua and John the Baptist to the Essenes.

The topic of tithing and giving has been much debated and there are many different interpretations of the Scripture regarding this topic. Both individuals and organizations have twisted the scriptures regarding tithing for their own benefit. The purpose of this study is to see what the Scripture teaches about tithing and how we should apply it in our lives. We are going to look into pre-mosaic tithing, mosaic tithing and what we can learn from Y’shua and history. What does Abba Yahovah require from us with regards to tithing and giving? What is in our Father’s heart?
