  • 45. The Subtle Anti-Semitism of the New Age Movement

    Clifford Denton There can be no more contemporary issue than the rise of the New Age Movement. Indeed, the scope of this movement is so wide that it raises up a multitude of contemporary issues. Over the last twenty or thirty years it has emerged out of the hippie movement into a ‘respectable’ alternative religion […]

  • 44. The Solidarity of Man

    Tom Hamilton The idea of a first and therefore last Adam is very ancient in Hebrew thought. They believed in a last Adam which was to come in as much as they believed in the first. Paul, therefore, in writing to the church at Corinth, used these precise terms to show, on the one hand, […]

  • 43. The Melchizedekian Priesthood of Yeshua and the Priesthood of all Believers

    Arnold G Fruchtenbaum There is recognition on the part of believers that the Messiah has three offices: Prophet, Priest and king. While many passages in the New Testament do develop both the prophetic office and the kingship of Yeshua, only one book elaborates in any way on the priesthood of The Messiah, and that is […]

  • 42. From Theatre to the Home

    Karl D Coke Millions of Christians have left the Church since 1960. Why? Today’s Church behaves more like a “Greek theatre” than a living organism. Its members “go to” church when they should “be” the church. These spectators are wearied from fighting, wasting money and trying to fulfil a pastor’s “vision.” Most Christians just want […]

  • 41. The Bruderhof Communities

    Marjorie Hindley The Bruderhof Communities or Hutterian Brethren are a gathering of people from all walks of life committed to a life of Christian brotherhood.

  • 39. Between Church and Synagogue: The Dilemma of Hebrew Christians and Messianic Jews

    Menahem Benhayim It is only within the past two centuries that Jews who embraced New Testament faith could – or would – begin to struggle to reaffirm the original New Testament view of a Jewish distinctive as valid within the Church. In apostolic times and briefly afterward the Jewish believer in Yeshua, while subject to […]

  • 38. The Relationship Between the Mosaic and New Covenants

    Louis Goldberg When most Gentile Christians are asked as to the status today of the Mosaic Law or Mosaic Covenant, the usual reply is that this covenant is no longer in force. A number of sources will be cited later on to this effect but generally the response is, based on an understanding of what […]

  • 37. The Greek Middle Voice

    Tom Hamilton The importance of the Greek Middle voice in our understanding of the New Testament writings has perhaps not yet been fully realised. This is because if languages change, and govern our ability to think and express thought, then our ability to both express certain linguistic aspects of New Testament Greek in up-to-date English, […]

  • 36. The Word of G-d

    Arye Powlison “The Word of G-d is living and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword. ” (Heb 4:12) There is a host of people in the Christian world who have focused on the Scriptures as though they were the source of their life. “In them you think you have eternal life.” (John 5:39). Eternal […]
