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.

We will be sharing with you the story of two young adults Jay and Britney, who chose the biblical way of courtship over the worldly way of dating.
Let us look at the covenant that is most commonly referred to as “the New Covenant.” It is important for us to understand exactly what this is, when it starts, how it relates to the Abrahamic & Sinai covenants and what the impact of this covenant is on us. We also need to take special notice of the role of Y’Shua our Messiah in this covenant. While studying this topic, it is important to try to keep ourselves clear of preconceived ideas of what this covenant is and how we are impacted. Many of us have been introduced to this covenant via a wrong point of view. It is challenging to look upon this study with a new point of view that does not bring the previous teachings with.
