  1. A Messianic Commentary: Yochanan (John) Presents the Revelation of Yeshua the Messiah -  by Rabbi Gavriel Lumbroso

    A Messianic Commentary: Yochanan (John) Presents the Revelation of Yeshua the Messiah - by Rabbi Gavriel Lumbroso

    Regular Price: $19.99

    Special Price $15.99

    “Reading Revelation through genuine Jewish eyes is like watching TV in color for the first time.” The Book of Revelation is perhaps the most mysterious, difficult-to-understand book in all of the Bible. Scholar after scholar, theologian after theologian have wrestled with all the strange visions, images and messages given by Yochanan (John), one of Yeshua’s apostles. This book has been seen as prophecy, poetry or both. It’s been looked at as a book that reveals the precise time of Messiah’s return to Earth and it’s also been understood to be talking solely about the historical events of the day, the last part of the first century C.E. Because of the difficulty in getting an accurate understanding of what this critical book is all about, most people have shied away from reading it. Until now! Gavrel Lumbroso has come to the rescue. As a Messianic Jewish rabbi, who has written and taught extensively on the Jewish background of the Faith in Yeshua (Jesus), we have hope. By imagining what was in Yochahan’s mind as he interacted with the words of the Master, Messiah Yeshua, Rabbi Lumbroso has opened up the Book of the Revelation for perhaps the first time since the words were spoken to Yochanan.

    First Century C.E./A.D. Messianic Jewish Believers in the Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) turned the world upside down. This is so potently portrayed in author Luke’s 18,374 words that the book has come to be known as The Acts of the Apostles (Emissaries). Luke was a physician, a careful historian, and showed a deep knowledge about Jewish laws and customs in the land of Israel and the Temple. His recording of the Spirit-filled birth and explosive growth of Messianic Judaism is divided in half: chapters 1-12 focus on Kefa (Peter) in Jewish regions, while chapters 13-28 concern themselves with Sha’ul (Paul) in largely Gentile regions. The known world of the First Century was not turned upside down because Yeshua-followers all believed the same thing. The inclusion of Gentiles in the plan of God and how both Jewish and Gentile Believers were to work out questions of their identity and relationship to one another in a pagan world — with opposing claims from both Jewish and Roman leadership — sparked much debate, conflict, and controversy about faith and practice. Even amidst imprisonments, rioting and personality conflicts, Dr. Luke details the influence of Ruach Hakodesh (the Holy Spirit) in all of this. In short, the faith of these early Yeshua-followers was demonstrated daily in tangible, practical ways. They fed the hungry, healed the sick, clothed the naked, invited strangers into their homes, visited prisoners, etc… Truly, when the world around them looked closely at those who said they believed the claims to deity and of messiahship from an obscure Jewish teacher from a backwater of the empire, their lives were different. The declaration of their faith wasn’t solely with words but with actions. The “Good News” was something which could be seen, felt and experienced … and the world had never seen anything like it. So radically different were those who followed this Yeshua, this Messiah (“Christ,”) that they were called the “Christ-like Ones,” or “Christians.” In the First Century, this word was understood in a biblical/Jewish context. Thus, for a Jew or Gentile to be called a Christian was connecting oneself very specifically to an active Jewish faith which recognized Yeshua as the promised/prophesied Messiah and Savior/Redeemer for Israel and the nations. Unfortunately, by the Third Century, the word Christian had completely lost its original Jewish understanding or context. Even today, the word Christian, though an endearing title to many, carries a hugely negative connotation for those of Hebrew descent and no longer effectively defines Jewish followers of Yeshua, who much prefer to be regarded as Messianic Jews. For over 40 years, Believers of Jewish descent in the Messiah have been congregating in hundreds of communities worldwide in response to the call of Ruach Hakodesh, believing it’s time to set the record straight concerning the Jewish Messiah. This book consists of a collection of my Shabbat (Sabbath) sermons based on the Book of Acts prepared and delivered to my faith community, Tree of Life, a Messianic Jewish congregation in San Diego, California several years ago. I do not consider this work by any means to be a complete exegetical commentary or a comprehensive academic analysis. Instead, this is a compilation of practical messages whose intended audience is Messianic Believers (Jewish or otherwise), and anyone curious about a Messianic Jewish perspective on Acts. Learn More
  4. Sayings of the Fathers

    Sayings of the Fathers

    Regular Price: $17.59

    Special Price $14.07

    The Mishnah tractate Pirkei Avot or Sayings of the Fathers is a compilation of wise sayings, proverbs, and anecdotes dating from the Third Century B.C.E.-Third Century C.E., forming much of the basis of ancient Jewish ethics. Many important parallels can be seen between remarks made in the Pirkei Avot and the wisdom sayings or teachings of Yeshua the Messiah, James the Just, and the Apostles Peter and Paul. In the Jewish community today, the Pirkei Avot are traditionally read and considered during the seven weeks between the festivals of Passover and Shavuot. Sayings of the Fathers: A Messianic Perspective on Pirkei Avot takes readers through not just one, but two years of fifty-day reflections, and six bonus days, of some of the ancient wisdom seen in this valuable text. You will not only be introduced to some of the key views present in the Apostolic period, but also be able to weigh the value that the Jewish Sages have in your own personal study and reflection upon the Holy Scriptures. Be prepared to join into an ancient discussion that spans the ages as you reflect on these words. Be blessed as your faith and outlook on the world are enriched, and you have more to take to your Heavenly Father in prayer! 320 pages. Learn More

    "No, me do it!" insists the toddler when we try to help. Early on we insist on our independence and, like the toddler, we have our own ideas about what will make us happy. But God has a way of shining His light on our misconceptions and revealing our need for Him. Andrea had an argument with Joel, and then Joel argued with Sid. Just when you feel like a situation is beyond salvaging, God steps in. But does he step in in a way you expect? Ever since she flew the Rabbi to Tennessee, it seemed to Rae that everyone around her was determined to press her to forgave the unforgivable, dredging up memories she'd tried so hard to run from all these months, along with the angst that came with them. But now-finally-it seems like they're leaving it alone-until Heath brings it up-again! -and then Orby! Why are they so insistent that she deal with this right now? Yes, God doesn't want us to spend even one moment longer away from him than we need-but when He presses in with such urgency, could it be there is more to it than just our reconciliation with Him? Could it also be there is something up around that bend that, in His mercy, He doesn't want us to go through alone-even despite our rebellion? Learn More

    Lifted Up - Between a Pharisee & a Thief

    $19.95

    Out of stock

    A parallel verse-by-verse commentary on the Gospel of John from two very different perspectives and addressing two very different audiences: a Messianic Jewish Rabbi speaking to his home congregation, and a convicted felon - a Gentile - teaching a class of brand-new converts ... as a prisoner himself. The Gospel of John contains some of the Bible's best-known verses ("For God so loved the world ...") yet also some of its most profound truths. "Lifted Up" challenges conventional views of the Gospel while highlighting the power of God not only to bring His own Chosen People to faith, but also to transform lives shattered by rebellion, addiction and sin. It is a volume not to be missed by the sincere follower of the First-Century Jewish Rabbi most of us call Jesus, whose Hebrew name is Yeshua. Learn More

    God's Appointed Times

    The biblical holy days are not just for Jews.
    Christians, too, can receive the blessing of these glorious days, the greatest objects lessons in the Bible.

    God gave each day to teach his people about him and his relationship to them. From the Sabbath, which pictures eternity, to the popular holiday, Hanukkah, mentioned by name only in the gospel of John, the special times were set apart to bless the people of God.

    In this book, Barney Kasdan, leader of one of the world`s largest Messianic Jewish congregations, explains every holy day described in Scripture. He teaches about the major and minor holy days, ever mindful that he is writing to both Jews and Christians.

    Beginning with the Sabbath, the first holy day revealed in Scripture, he writes about Passover, Firstfruits, Pentecost, Trumpets, the Day of Atonement, the Feast of Tabernacles, Hanukkah, and Purim (the special day given in the time of Queen Esther).

    Each chapter offers historical background, traditional Jewish observance, relevance to the New Testament, prophetic significance, and a practical guide for believers, including recipes, songs, and crafts.

    There are other books on the same subject but this one goes beyond them all. It is written by a Messianic Jew, a Jew who trusts Yeshua (Jesus). Who better to explain God`s Appointed Times? 145 pages.

    Special Price $14.39

    Elijah and Elisha are among the earliest and most influential prophets of Israel. They were both used to call Israel and Judah back to the Lord. Yet, their impact extended far beyond the boundaries of Israel in both space and time, impacting other nations and later times. Their stories form the framework of 1 and 2 Kings. Additionally, their accounts also inform and shape later Jewish biblical and religious texts. Quite significantly, the Elijah-Elisha historical pattern plays and important role in the structure and substance fo the texts of the Gospels. Important people anre pictured against the background of these two key figures in Israel's history. Not only that, but the Elijah-Elisha narrative serves as part of the structure of key sections of the Gospels, themselves. Learn More
