Listener Feedback - Torah Study
Listener Comment:Eliyahu, i have recently stumbled onto a site called __. I was wondering if you are familiar with this site or its teaching. Being unfamiliar as I am I don't know if this teaching is right, wrong or commonly held stuff that a Jewish student would learn. I am not a Jew. I am simply trying to return to the word of G_d the best way I can, by understanding his Word. I just don't want to get off track.If this is asking too much, maybe you know another resource for me to use,to get caught up on old testament meanings that a modern Gentile just would not know.
Tsiyon Answer:The site you ask about advocates the oral law and submission to unbelieving rabbis. Nothing personal about the website author, but that position will take you places that a follower of Y'shua must not go. Some of our programs explain why.
I see that you are facing the problem of learning your Hebrew roots. Once you start looking for that teaching you are bound to find a plethora of conflicting information that will leave you confused and disheartened. I would like to recommend a solution.
In Messiah's time persons serious about learning the ways of Yah would become talmidim (disciples) of one teacher (rabbi). Once they decided upon their rabbi, they followed his teaching only, until finally they reached the level of being a teacher themselves. Limiting yourself to one teacher, so long as you choose the one Yah has for you, eliminates a lot of confusion and will help you to get the knowledge you need.
I offer a Tamidim Program here at Tsiyon and you are free to join if you wish. You can find out more about it at our Tsiyon Community website. If it sounds right for you then email me to get started. The link of our community site is: www.community.tsiyon.org.
Listener Comment: Eliyahu, This sounds like an awesome solution, Tamidim Program. As I see it, I first should become a Ministry partner to access the program info. The rest was clearly explained on your website. I am excited to see the study guides as your shows pack a lot of information. And with focused reading, writing, and hearing one can remember so much more. I told myself to pray about this through the day, but I wanted to do this before I finished reading your email. I was not previously aware of the full benefits of your Tamidim Program and this again sounds exciting. I am eager to do this and learn from others and get an opportunity to share what the Holy Spirit shares with me as well....Sign me up!!!!?
Our listener who submitted the comments above brings up a real problem that many of our new listeners have been experiencing. That problem is finding a reliable source of Hebrew Roots knowledge that won't lead them astray. This is a BIG problem since many of the Messianic teachers you will find out there seek to bring you under the authority of the Jewish rabbis who don't know, and even worse, are hostile to, Y'shua Messiah. This is a big concern for Tsiyon Radio, since our program is reaching many who are just learning about Hebrew Roots for the first time from our program. We feel an obligation to you to bring you only verified truth that you can rely upon and to warn you that not all things called "Messianic" are sources you should turn to. In fact, some of those "ministries" are toxic to true Messianic faith, being conduits out of the faith into unbelieving Judaism. Sadly, some each year renounce Messiah so as to be accepted as "Jews" largely due to the influence of such "ministries."
While we can verify our own message as uplifting the authority and Person of Messiah we cannot recommend other Messianic teachers, some popular, who have even undermined the Scriptures and cast doubt on the full authority of Messiah. All we can say is, if you have been drawn to the clear Biblical message of Tsiyon as your first experience with the Messianic faith, please stick with us for the full course of what we have to offer before taking on the larger Messianic world. This will give you a Bible-based standard by which you will be able to take an accurate measure of the chaos you are bound to encounter out there and will stand you in good stead on the foundation of Y'shua Messiah, the living Torah.
Blessings and shalom in the name of Y'shua Messiah,
Eliyahu ben David
