He thought he had finished the teaching on The Covenant in the last episode, however, Rabbi Berkson felt there were still some things that needed to be talked about. He points out that at first glance what is going on in chapters 9 and 10 really don’t affect our walk, but after a prompt from his Boss to double-check those chapters, here we are! If you’ve ever been told that the Book of Hebrews is just too hard to understand, then you definitely should watch this episode. Rabbi Berkson breaks...

Moving into the letter to the Hebrews chapters 7-9, a comparison or contrast of not only the two priesthoods, Levitical and Melchizedekian, begins to be made, but also a comparison of the two temples–earthly and heavenly. Then, arriving at the key verse that has to do with the Covenant, 7:22, Rabbi Steve Berkson proposes a better, more understandable translation and interpretation of the Greek behind the English. Rabbi Berkson points out a significant revelation regarding the thought that...

Continuing the journey in the Book of Hebrews towards the key verse, chapter 7, verse 22, where it talks about Messiah Yeshua being a guarantor of a “better covenant”, Rabbi Steve Berkson begins this episode in chapter 6 to provide more context building up to the understanding of The Covenant. Picking up from where he left off in the last episode, 6:4-6, Rabbi Berkson finds a nugget of gold in verses 7-8 as it talks about ground, rain, plants and tilling, which leads him to John 15 and...

In the last episode Rabbi Steve Berkson unpacked more of the nuances of being in covenant by diving into the letter to the Hebrews, the Book of Hebrews. He moved at record pace going through the first four chapters in one setting. Now we understand and should try to relate to the First-Century audience as the author of the letter makes the case for Messiah Yeshua’s place in the “big picture” and in the lives of the individuals as their standard of lifestyle was about to go away–the...

This exciting episode begins the letter to the Hebrews. The goal of going through this letter is to get to chapter 7 and verse 22 where it speaks of Yeshua being the guarantor of a “better covenant”. What does this mean and hasn’t it caused a lot of trouble due to mainstream Christianity’s interpretation of this verse? But, in order to do that, Rabbi Steve Berkson starts us on the journey from the beginning of the letter in order to understand, through context, what the author is saying...

Moving forward from last week, Rabbi Steve Berkson takes us into Romans chapters 11 and 12, then to Ephesians chapter 2, where he interprets the writing of the apostle Paul quite a bit differently than most of us have ever heard taught before. Because of this, Rabbi Steve clarifies further his position on the understanding of “grace” or favor, specifically whether it is merited or unmerited. Could it be both? In this message we see the beauty of the kindness and faithfulness of our Creator...

As he continues in Romans chapters 10 and 11, Rabbi Steve Berkson has received some clear insight on a couple of troublesome verses. Understanding the context of the letter to the Roman assembly is the key, as he explains in the first part of this teaching. Not only the context in this letter, but also, context from the Tanakh as the apostle Paul references it time and time again to establish his points. Context is critical to gaining the correct understanding and interpretation, especially...

Can you say that the things you are suffering now because of your faith are not worthy to be compared to the honor (glory) that shall be revealed in you? Who’s the ‘he’ that “searches the hearts”? Is it true that nothing can separate us from the love of Messiah? Romans 10:4 reads that Messiah is the end of the law for righteousness–what does the word ‘end’ mean in that sentence? Did Paul misquote Moses in Romans 10:6-8? As we’ve progressed through the book of Romans, we see how the apostle...

Why was Messiah Yeshua “delivered up” and then “raised”? Is Yahweh “obligated” to us? What is the one thing on which Jews and Christians agree? Is the apostle Paul teaching his congregation against circumcision of the flesh? Is “circumcision of the heart” a concept exclusive to the New Testament? This teaching is particularly challenging for the teacher and for the listener/disciple because of how the apostle Paul chose to word his thoughts in this letter to the beloved, set-apart ones in...
