Hebrew New Year & Passover

The new Biblical month of the new Biblical year began March 17 at sundown. That means that the 14th day of the 1st Hebrew month falls on the evening of March 30th. Thus Passover begins after sundown on March 30 this year. For this Passover season we are taking a break from our normal teaching schedule to offer special Passover-related programs. We hope you enjoy them!

Tsiyon Answer - ..Statement of Faith
Thank you for your kind thoughts towards Tsiyon Ministry.  Thanks also for your request for information. On your first point, while we know it is quite normal these days for ministries to post a Mission Statement and Statement of Faith in the form of a brief list of points, and is therefore normal to ask for those, we find ourselves unable to participate in that practice because of Scriptural considerations. Of course, we could simply say that we are bondslaves of Y'shua Messiah and as such are totally devoted to following Him in doing the Father's will, and that we believe without reservation in the Spirit-Inspired Scriptures as the standard of all Truth. This is precisely our position. Beyond that it becomes impossible to select some points of truth out of all Scripture to pull into an appropriate list of beliefs, while leaving many other important truths out of the list (how is that possible since its ALL important? see 2 Tim 3:16+17). The truth is, the entire Scriptures provide both our Mission and our Statement of Faith, and we dare not reduce those to something less. Since that is our conviction we must let our many recorded hours of teachings and hundreds of pages of books and articles speak for us regarding both our work and our message.

Having said all that, the reason for your request may simply be that you want to know what we think about a given topic or topics. If so, I would be glad to make it easier for you to find that information in our material. Just email me your topic(s) of interest and I will gladly point you to our information on the subject(s).

Now, to your second point: Should you need to find it again, our address can be found on the bottom of each issue of Tsiyon News.

Listener Comment - ..Selling Coca-Cola in Israel

A disappointed salesman of Coca-Cola returned from his assignment to Israel.

A friend asked, "Why weren't you successful with the Israelis?"

The salesman explained, "When I got posted, I was very confident that I would make a good sales pitch. But I had a problem. I didn't know how to speak Hebrew. So I planned to convey the message through these three posters:

Cola ad

First poster : A man lying in the hot desert sand totally exhausted.

Second poster : The man is drinking Coca-Cola.

Third poster : Our man is now totally refreshed.

And then these posters were pasted all over the place.

"Terrific! That should have worked!" said the friend.

"Indeed it should have!" said the salesman.

"But no one told me they read from right to left!"

Thoughts from Eliyahu ben David:

If you just finished reading the joke immediately above you are probably laughing right now. I know I was after I read it. I also realized there is a real point to the joke. That is - there is a huge gap between Hebraic thinking and our Greco-Roman common culture. That gap often leads to huge misunderstanding. I know that here at Tsiyon we are constantly trying to bridge that gap - to communicate Hebraic-based truth that doesn't easily fit into the Greco-Roman mind. That is our biggest challenge. Passover is such a good example of that gap. So many around us do not see the relevance of keeping Passover, while it is vital to us. In one sacred meal we celebrate our national deliverance from Egypt, our personal deliverance from sin, death and the world by our Passover Lamb - and even our future deliverance just ahead in the Second Exodus. Bunnies and painted eggs are both inappropriate and trivial compared to this!  And yet, many sincere believers still just don't know the difference. I pray that we, who do know the difference, can find the love, grace and concern for those around us to do what we can to communicate the profound meaning of this Passover to others, as we are moved, strengthened and encouraged by it ourselves.

Dawn and I want to take this opportunity to wish you and yours all of the profound and abundant blessings of this Passover season.

Blessings and Shalom,

Eliyahu ben David
