  • 101. Hope for Those Without Hope

    Anna Hanninen I’m grateful for the possibility given to me to write for the Tishrei Journal and to be able to share between the readers the matter God has laid on my heart very strongly. It concerns the distress of the poor and in many ways suffering children in different parts of the world. I […]

  • 100. Famines and Earthquakes

    Lyson Moyo One of the signs our Lord Jesus Christ talks about in Matthew 24 is hearing of famines, pestilence and earthquakes – 24:7. These are the things to happen as the Day of Our Lord draws near. It is evident that the Bible has recorded such happenings of famines, pestilences, land sinking down and […]

  • 99. The Word Living in us

    Arye Powlison If someone speaks to us about the Word of G-d, we often think first about our Bibles. If so, it is probably because this is the most frequent way that we hear it used. But the Word which John says that he touched with his hands was Messiah: “That which was from the beginning, […]

  • 98. Food for Thought

    Hannah Weiss Scripture speaks of “solid food”, contrasting it with “milk”. Yet many believers see no difference between them. We are generally taught that once we receive new birth through Yeshua, our spiritual maturity is guaranteed by taking in “the pure milk of the Word” (1 Peter 2:2). The spiritually mature are simply those who […]

  • 97. The Anticipation of the Outpouring and Ingathering

    David Garnett (This article is a transcript of a talk given initially to a group who were praying for Israel, and later to a more general audience – in both cases it was found that explanation of terminology was beneficial and generally church history as a subject has been little taught.) Introduction As this journal […]

  • 96. The Lord’s Supper in the First Century

    Richard Veach Whether you refer to the Lord’s Supper as the Eucharist, Holy Communion, or the breaking of bread, and whether you partake of it monthly, weekly, or periodically depends on your religious background or affiliation. If you are a Protestant Christian, it is typically comprised of a tiny glass of grape juice (or wine) […]

  • 95. Baptism in the First Century

    Richard Veach Where did the practice of baptism originate? Could the idea of baptizing converts come from the many lustrations used in the purification rites that are found in the tabernacle laws? Perhaps it was adopted from the use of the Mikveh during the first and/or second Temple periods. Proselytes to Judaism were required to […]

  • 94. The Didache: Part 2

    Richard Veach In the previous article I discussed the history and the importance of the Didache and why it is still relevant to the church in our day. It was written before much of what we now have in the New Testament and while some of the Apostles of Jesus were still alive and able […]

  • 93. The Mighty Hand of God

    Christopher Barder Ezekiel 20:34 – “I will bring you from the nations and gather you from the countries where you have been scattered — with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm and with outpoured wrath.” Isaiah 11:11-12 NIV – “In that day the Lord will reach out his hand a second time to reclaim the remnant […]

  • 92. The Didache

    Richard Veach The Didache (a Greek word for teaching), also known as “The Teaching of the Twelve Apostles” or “The Doctrine of the Lord to the nations through the Twelve Apostles”, is an important document because it is one of the earliest Christian writings and is thought to have been written during a time when […]
