Eliyahu ben David Bet Midrash

2 Sons - 1 Heir

Genesis 20+21

On the road to Tsiyon Hidden in Plain Sight Focus on Israel Tsiyon Reading Room Criggarious

  2 Sons - 1 Heir

Son of the Promise..What does the Scripture say?

“Throw out the slave woman and her son, for the son of the slave woman will not inherit with the son of the free woman.”

So then, brothers, we are not children of a slave woman, but of the free woman. Stand firm therefore in the liberty by which Messiah has made us free, and don’t be entangled again by a yoke of bondage to man-made religion. Gal 4:30-5:1

Tsiyon Messianic Scriptures - Free Download: We have prepared new versions of our latest Tsiyon Messianic Scriptures for you! These include the entire book of Bereshit/Genesis as well as the first of the five books of Psalms for your use in our EBD Bet Midrash. These are the same version, with some updates, that we use in the Midrash, so you can follow along using the same translation we are reading from on the program. You can download these latest Tsiyon Messianic Scriptures free of charge from this page.

Galatians 4 English Translation - Free Download: In Galatians 4 Rabbi Sha'ul a/k/a Apostle Paul presents a teaching from key verses in Genesis 21. Since our latest EBD Bet Midrash #019 deals with this chapter of Genesis, and because the true sense of Galatians 4 is not  accurately conveyed by available Bible translations, Eliyahu ben David has created a paraphrase translation of Galatians 4 especially for use with this latest program. The translation errors of popular Bibles thus revealed in this section of Scripture illustrate why Paul is so poorly understood by most believers. For more on this, follow along with your own copy of this EBD translation of Galatians 4 as Eliyahu explains Galatians 4 verse by verse. Get your free download of Galatians 4 here or from this page.

Tsiyon Q + A

Listener Question - What do you believe about Messiah?

Q. I love your Torah teaching. Do you folks believe that Christ already came and died for our sins, was crucified, died, went under the earth, was raised from the dead and ascended to the heavens and is sitting at the right hand of the Father? If not and why and please provide your proof of your belief.

Tsiyon Answer: Thanks for writing. I'm glad you are enjoying our Torah teaching. The Torah gives us a foundation of instruction on which the rest of the Scriptures are built. We see all of the Scriptures, from Genesis through Revelation, as one harmonious revelation from YHWH. In our view the "New Testament" simply continues the revelation already given. In that sense it is not "new" at all. Rather, it simply shows the fulfillment of the Torah and the Prophets in the person, work, and community of Y'shua the Messiah.

Sha'ul (Apostle Paul) was an anointed Torah scholar who, rightly understood and translated, makes many of these connections with the Torah and Prophets for us throughout his letters, showing how these are fulfilled with the coming of Messiah. He said this regarding his confession:

Now I declare to you, brothers, the Good News which I preached to you, which also you received, in which you also stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold firmly the word which I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Messiah died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Kefa (Peter), then to the twelve. Then he appeared to over five hundred brothers at once, most of whom remain until now, but some have also fallen asleep. Then he appeared to Jacob, then to all the emissaries, and last of all, as to the child born at the wrong time, he appeared to me also. 1 Cor 15:1-8

Paul is here witnessing to the fact that Messiah (Christ) came, died for our sins and then was raised from the dead. Paul says that there were over five hundred of the brothers, most still alive when he wrote, who were eye-witnesses to that fact! This is the living Messiah I believe in, whom I also serve.

A number of places in Scripture tell us that He ascended into heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father. He Himself said:

No one has ascended into heaven, but he who descended out of heaven, the Son of Man, who is in heaven.  Yochanan/John 3:13

This is also our confession, that He rules from heaven, and that soon He shall return to receive His own, to judge the world, and to rule His Kingdom from Jerusalem.

I hope that this will adequately confirm our faith in Messiah for you. Without Him, everything else we teach is essentially worthless. He is at the center of everything we believe, teach and do - praise His name!

From Eliyahu

As we midrash together through Genesis I am finding all of it of vital importance in these days, but I find that I connect with some parts of it in a more personal way than with some other parts. Perhaps you are having that same experience. Genesis 21 along with Paul's teaching on that, in Galatians 4, powerfully connects with me in a deeply personal way - making me so desirous of sharing the depth of this message with you. My hope is that you will be uplifted and blessed by the amazing freedom offered to you in these passages - which freedom is made real only through Y'shua Messiah. You are meant to be an heir of the promise rather than a slave to concepts of mere men - and I pray, as you take in this message, you will more fully appropriate that blessed freedom in your own life than ever before.


Eliyahu ben David
