Here is a video teaching sure to challenge almost every religious tradition you’ve ever accepted… I do not agree with the presenter on everything, but we would agree on about 90+% of what he presents. My thoughts on where we differ after the video.
This video was made a couple years ago and only recently posted on YouTube. In the video he refers to wanting to write a book with a similar title… Well, it is due to be released in 8 or 9 months. I look forward to it in order to have the written discussion so I can process some of his thoughts further.
As to his discussion on Yeshua’s relationship with the Father, I see much more connection between the Father and Yeshua as evidenced in the Who Is… series I did a couple months ago. Certainly, I agree with the presenter that Yeshua did NOT come to start a new religion or to direct people away from Yahweh’s Instructions (Torah).
Judaism struggles with the idea of a Divine Messiah, and our Father will have to straighten that out. For Christians, we need to really understand the centrality of the Torah in everything that Yeshua taught and was/is! I liken it to us being on opposite sides of the road with the narrow path between. Christianity has the Messiah, but is lawless; Judaism is Lawful, but without the Messiah. The narrow way is right in between… Revelation 12:17; 14:12!!
There is much material in here to process and wrestle with as we UNlearn the false traditions inherited from our fathers. I pray you take the time and then comment on your thoughts on this thread…
