You guys know I love to brag on Joseph Good's Temple course over at www.jerusalemtemplestudy.com and today I am going to take the test for the Korban Kodashim Kallim - the sacrifices of lesser sanctity. Ninety-seven questions (yes, you can use your notes) - goodness sakes, started the class like two months ago and this one has been technically the most difficult. I had just started to get the hang of things when he started up two classes ago with the sacrifices - they are not what people think, they are not basic, and I am figuring out that a lot of the "spiritual application teachings" out there would hold no water at all if people knew the actual procedures. Not only that - but seeing pictures and memes of the "sacrifices" on the altar with their skin still on, all in one piece, just drives me nuts now lol. Two years ago, I thought that was correct. But I didn't say that to discourage you but to ENCOURAGE you. Yes, the classes take time - anything worthwhile takes time to learn and master. Since it is prep day I probably won't finish the test today - good thing it has a save option! And Joe is wonderful, if he requires you to read it, he gives you the materials as part of the class.

I am going to have some fun sharing some of my hate mail in order to explore the question, "should we take correction from just anyone?" The way people communicate with others, and often with complete strangers, tells us a lot about how seriously we should or shouldn't take their criticism. We are also going to talk about how we should approach the people whom we want to take us seriously.

If you want your children to value people, then you need to value people. Don't let them catch you using people as resources - if you take from a person, make sure you let your children see you being loyal to that person. Don't take from them with one hand while making snide comments the moment they are out of sight. Kids notice and emulate, they learn their ideas about loyalty and how to esteem others from us. Make sure they see you giving back in return as well. It is so easy to take and take and take from others and then wonder why our children feel so entitled.
On the flip side, don't let them see you only willing to give, either. It is incredibly unkind to place people in the position where they feel they increasingly owe you but you won't let them give back - it is a very demeaning way to treat people. I used to do this and it was rooted in fear, partially, but also pride - although I would have sworn up and down that it was actually humility. I wanted to be the giver, I wanted to be the superior one - I wanted the balance to be stacked high in my favor. Even the poorest clients (recipients in the grace Patron-client relationships of the first-century world) were able to proclaim and magnify the name (reputation) of the people who gave to them. Put it this way, how would you feel if someone gave you things only to be told, "I have no need of anything from you"? Gratitude goes both ways, and what seems like humility in action is often just pride.

I am grateful that God talks to us at our level of knowledge and not His. Some people say that's calling God a liar, but it isn't any more a lie than when our first math teachers told us that we can't subtract a bigger number from a smaller number. Of course, we know that's not true - anyone who has overdrawn their checkbook balance or charged up too much on their credit cards knows it! We can owe more money than we have - hence the negative number! What it was, was practical and compassionate towards our inability to grasp that concept at the time. I have a degree in Chemistry, and yet my level of scientific knowledge is pathetic and extremely lacking compared to what God knows. When He does communicate with me, He never teaches me science or corrects my scientific knowledge - science isn't really high on God's list of important stuff to communicate but our character is. So He allowed people to believe and write that we think with our hearts, and had the seat of emotions in the bowels and stored our wisdom in our kidneys. Big deal - it changed nothing about the truth of what was being presented and when the Greeks found out that brains actually had a function in the 5th century BCE, people caught on after a while. It didn't really bother anyone until the 19th century when Christians became embarrassed by the Scientific inaccuracies of the Bible and forgot that its intention wasn't to teach science but to reveal to man how to be an image-bearer for God in order to occupy the earth and do God's will "on earth as it is in heaven." Like a good math teacher, God doesn't care if his little ones have all the scientific and mathematical details down - I mean, we never will, right? We play with tinker toys and believe we are masters of science - but not really. Any scientist is more awed by what eludes us than by what we believe we know now.
There is a lot of fighting right now between believers about the "science" of the Bible - with some folks actually impugning the integrity of people who don't see it their way. Some folks are going to act like that - on their heads be it. As for me, I will keep using the Bible to teach me how to be an image-bearer for my King - to accurately reflect His light here on earth. I am not ashamed of the Bible. I refuse to treat it as a science book when my character still needs so much work.

Well, I may not be doing adult ministry anymore, but sometimes while going through my "on this day" memories I find something I wrote and never shared! This one was from a year ago today on blessings and curses:
Torah portion Behukottai teaches us that the blessings promised in Torah involve having enough of EVERYTHING and not just some things. Dare we call ourselves favored when we have one blessing in abundance but not the others? Is one sort of blessing superior to the others? Do we not have to also call ourselves cursed when we lack certain blessings or do we only promote the ones we have?
***
There once was a family with a great many children and the couple held their heads high as they spoke of their full quiver and many blessings that showed how favored they were in the eyes of God. In the assembly, they looked down at those couples with only one or two children, and especially at those couples who had none at all. Sometimes they would remark at how much more favored they were, and more than once commented on the "obvious unrepentant sin" of those couples who had no children at all.
People could not help but notice, however, how thin their children were and how ravenously they ate at the community potlucks. The couple's home was run down, and they were forever having to scrimp and save in order to get their basic bills paid. They often asked for loans from family and friends in order to make ends meet.
The childless couple received a call one day from the couple with many children, asking for money, and after hearing, "I am certain that God will bless you with children if you help us in our need!" Well, the couple had finally had enough. "We have money and you have children! Perhaps you should give us a child and then you will be blessed with all of the money you need! You speak to us of how favored you are and yet doesn't the Word tell us that not only will we multiply, but we will also have increase, we will be lenders and not borrowers! You are quick to point out the supposed unrepentant sins of those who have no children, where is the unrepentant sin which has caused your poverty?"
Living in exile means that even those who multiply do not necessary increase and conversely, those who increase do not necessarily multiply - meaning that in Lev 26:9 the Land would produce more than one needed. They would multiply, yes, but the Land would also cause increase - they would not multiply beyond their means to provide. Here in exile, we do not see this happening because we are not living under that system. We are living in the midst of the curses caused by "rotting..." "...in our enemy's lands" (Lev 26:39).
We mustn't dare call ourselves blessed according to the Torah unless we possess ALL of the blessings - and since we are in exile, oops, guess we really are still reaping the curses.

What is parenthood? Parenthood is largely teaching children to set boundaries around their own behavior, but then to go above and beyond those basic boundaries, the "do's and don'ts" into being proactively loving and truly good instead of just "not bad."
A legalistic keeping of Torah is going to be focused on simply not being bad, whereas to love God with all your heart, mind and strength is to strive to be truly loving and good - it is that "above and beyond" that draws us nearer and nearer to representing His heart. Legalism isn't adding to or taking away - it is figuring out the bare minimum of physical action/inaction and refusing to see that the intention is to conform us to the image of God on earth, people who will be the living embodiments of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness and self-control. Legalism changes behavior but not the heart and mind - because neither the unchanged heart nor the mind is truly committed to doing anything but the bare minimum required in order to check off boxes while feeling entitled to hear the words, "Well done good and faithful servant."
Teenagers are great at legalism - believe me, I have two sixteen-year-olds. "But you only said I had to..." which is invariably followed by, "You knew exactly what I meant, and I shouldn't have to spell it out for you with diagrams and charts and powerpoints."

(FYI, I have to address some disturbing questions I am getting in my email, so you may or may not want to read all of this.)
Popping on to let you know that my new book is now available on Amazon in Canada and Europe, earliest release ever, but not in Australia yet. If you are in the US, you can take advantage of their **sale price** - which they generally do a few days after release but I am not sure how long it will last as I have no say in the matter. Just FYI, there seems to be some confusion based on some questions I am getting from ladies. This is not a book that will discuss Biblical sex - this is a book that explains a lot of the confusing situations in the Bible that involve things like sexual crimes, like why did Peter call Lot righteous when Lot offered his daughters to a rape gang and was Dinah actually raped and does God really want women to marry their rapist. This is a sociology and ancient near eastern context book designed to help people defend God and His Word against the often leveled charge that He is a moral monster and that His Word sanctions abuse against women - I am not a slightly taller Dr. Ruth. Some of you ladies have some nasty husbands who evidently don't mind asking and pressuring you to do things that you feel are demeaning and degrading. Ladies, if your marriage bed feels defiled because your husband is pressuring you to behave like a prostitute, then it is defiled - you have a right for sex to be mutual and elevated. You have a right to be treated like daughters of the King, you are worthy of respect, and you don't exist for the sole purpose of giving your husband exotic thrills. What he is asking you to do might not be spelled out in Scripture as forbidden, but the commandment to love your neighbor is there and it goes both ways - if he is pressuring you to "love him" in a way that causes you to feel unloved, well, that is just not cool. If his primary concern is about his pleasure, then there is a problem and he is breaking the commandment to love you, and his vow to honor and respect you if that was in the marriage vows. The questions I am getting are literally breaking my heart - sex should not be a source of anguish and stress in a marriage.
Anyway, wrote 8,700 words yesterday, which is like a record for me. Since a big part of this book, half of it actually, will be teaching kids about their lifelong ministry of being conformed to the character of Messiah, I am actually in sort of a Fruit of the Spirit boot camp and learning a lot. Writing a chapter this morning on "How do we love God when we are angry with Him?" Well, you know I don't pull my punches, not even with kids - they get angry at God too and deserve to have it acknowledged.

I have to figure out how to do videos for kids about Yeshua/Jesus in a new way. I am not sure how to do it. Parents are not tuning in, by and large, to what I am doing now but I don't know how to teach about Yeshua without teaching doctrine, which I feel is a parental right and responsibility. Congregations are asking me about Sabbath/Sunday school materials for kids but books won't work because with my stuff, if a kid misses a week they will be lost. But I don't know how to be anything but a history teacher. I want serious materials out there about Yeshua because nothing is more important, yet I hear people say Yeshua=Torah and that is enough. Well, how is that working out for the overwhelming majority of Jews who know Torah better than any of us? It isn't working out. If our kids don't know more than "Yeshua came to preach Torah fully" then they will walk away. They will either figure that Yeshua served His purpose in bringing them to Torah and ditch Him as excess baggage and irrelevant and not be conformed to His character, or they will never learn about Him at all and end up denying Him. The 14-year-old son of a former believer turned anti-missionary just died and my heart is broken. People are asking me - "What is the age of accountability? Will he be in the world to come? etc." I have no answers. I have zero answers. I have the one I want to give so everyone will feel good, but in the end my answers don't matter. Our kids need Yeshua, they need that personal relationship with Christ that we benefitted from, that changed us from what we were into what we are now. Please, I am begging you, please pray for me that I can get this figured out. I don't know how to teach this, but it needs to be taught.

The Beatitudes
So, we are delving into the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew, and each month I will present a week of 15-ish minute lessons on Yeshua’s/Jesus’s teachings. This last week, we explored the Beatitudes, in their first-century context.

Part one covered the Ashrei “Blessed are” teachings in the Bible, notably Psalm 1, and we talk about the theme, setting and audience – which gives us a lot more insight into their meaning:

Attention Youth Leaders: Christian and/or Messianic
This had never occurred to me before yesterday, but I had someone in youth ministry contact me about talking to young women about the dangers of pornography, and I thought I would put it out there that this is something I am open to doing - with girls, boys or mixed groups. I have been very open about being a porn addict, starting at the age of eight when I was exposed to it at my father's workplace until my early thirties, despite having no access to it at home, but ready access at the homes I babysat at. With the internet, this has become even more of a problem as there are no longer any homes without access to porn, by and large. This is a subject that is very important to me, and I am open to skyping with teen groups or travelling short distances to meet with people. So, although I am not really willing to coordinate something like this privately with men I don't know personally, I am open to speaking with female leaders about this. No offense guys, but too many of you out there want to post as leaders when what you really want is to talk to a woman about sex. Learned that the hard way.

So, it's the small things that make people in ministry happy. I honestly was sweating bullets for almost a year - dreading posting that blog on the opening of the tombs after Yeshua/Jesus's death. Honestly, my mind was abuzz with all of the potential accusations and misunderstandings. I was so freaked out that I sent it to my friend Dinah to proof it first and make sure I hadn't said anything that could be misconstrued. Still, I sat with clenched fists monday, and then tuesday, just waiting... and everyone was like, totally a grownup about it. I was honestly shocked - not even any hatemail or nasty comments on my website. So honestly, I just want to say thanks. I am even totally cool with people totally disagreeing - as long as they treat me with a modicum of kindness and refrain from cheap shots or comments about their dubious opinions concerning the validity of my salvation. Seriously, it is nice to be able to teach something avant-garde and have everyone behave with excellent fruit. Love you guys!

Can I be totally honest? Even if it makes some folks angry? Seems lately I am being inundated with folks informing me of their "Jewish" blood.
Jer 29.11 "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope."
I Tim 1.4 "nor to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies, which promote speculations rather than the stewardship from God that is by faith."
I live in a part of the country where genealogical work is a mega-idol, MEGA-IDOL. Yes, speaking about the Mormon (LDS) Church here, they are absolutely obsessed with their genealogies and bloodlines - although for the life of me I have zero idea why.
Who we are in Messiah is who WE are, as a family, the Body of Messiah. God gives us a hope and a future, not a past. Genealogies used to be a way to pre-judge people without having to know them as individuals - that's how it worked in Bible days. Not everything about honor/shame culture is particularly reflective of God's redemptive power and our individual levels of devotion. I am really concerned with folks caring so much about their DNA - because it changes nothing. If I found out tomorrow that I was Jewish, related to King David himself, it wouldn't change anything about my calling and my responsibility to be a better image-bearer of God.
Folks say, "I just want to find out, not like it matters" but then tell everyone about it. Evidently, it matters. What do we believe about God and the Body of Messiah? Does Jewish DNA get us closer to the top, better seating at the banquets and synagogues?
We really need to think about why we want to know and what we think it means. And we really need to be honest with ourselves - are we trying to be more simply through something that is not an achievement? Is being born Jewish somehow difficult to accomplish, like being white or male?
I refuse to have testing done. It won't make an ounce of difference in the world - and if it would make a difference, then shame on me.

Did you know that all the memes and sensational stories tying Rosh HaShanah to Babylonian paganism are actually incredibly misinformed (just like the tying of the seder plate to Babylon)? You've heard the rumors, right? That RH mimics the Akitu festival in Babylon - their new year? Actually (and I have verified this independently from Matthew here so I can vouch for his research), most ANE cultures celebrated their New Year in the month of Nisan, in the spring, and Babylon, in particular, began it at the time of the cutting of the barley (a festival that actually ran from Adar 21 to Nisan 1) - at the aforementioned Akitu festival (that supposedly happened in the fall instead according to many teachings out there but we all know when the barley is harvested). Egyptians had their new year at the inundation of the Nile in the summer, at roughly the same time as the birthdays of Osiris and Horus (that's right, their birthdays were celebrated during the last five days of the year, in the summer, not in December - who knew that memes and youtube videos could be so wrong, right?)
Rosh HaShanah was when kings of Israel had their coronations and, by extension, the kingship of God was celebrated in ancient Israel. Thus, it was the new year for kings (and thus, the most important reckoning because God is the true king of Israel and we await the return of Yeshua/Jesus on that day, right?). We await the coronation of our King Messiah.
Biblical Israel, like Americans, has many calendars - we have the fiscal calendar, the school calendar, and the civil calendar. Biblical Israel had a new year for festivals (starting in the spring on Nisan 1), a new year for determining the tithe on animals (in the summer), a new year for determining the age of trees (in the winter), a new year for agriculture, beginning in Tishri, a new year for Kings, on Tishri 1, and a new year for the Shemittah and Jubilees (Yom Kippur). We could also add the beginning of the Tithe year for agriculture beginning at Shavuot if we really wanted.
God sent Israel into exile as part of the Leviticus and Deuteronomy curses so that they would give up their henotheistic ways and become exclusively monotheistic. His plans didn't backfire, they were incredibly successful. A people returned from Exile who were willing to die, and violently defend, the commandments. The pains they went to, sometimes ridiculous pains, to keep from being heathen in any of their practices, was extreme - far above and beyond the Law. Beware of those who are so desperate to find fault with Judaism and Christianity that they spread false witness, having simply believed what this or that person told them without actual investigation. As you guys are probably aware, I started studying Babylonian, Egyptian, Canaanite, Hittite, and Assyrian religions because I wanted to understand how they impacted the Bible. The results shocked me - I couldn't verify any of these stories going around about Babylonian religion. I blogged about some of it before deciding to spend time studying the Feasts in context instead. What I discovered bore absolutely no resemblance to anything "Babylonian" at anything more than a the superficial level that all Temple practices listed in the Bible resembled what the pagans did (because, really, Biblical practices were the earliest and everyone else mimicked the true - heathens didn't reinvent the wheel, why would they?).
If someone doesn't prove Babylonian connections with facts in context, from legitimate scholars, then please, it is a wild goose chase down a rabbit hole. Accusations, in the Bible, had to be proven, not disproven. People never change and when we make a radical shift in our beliefs/doctrines, it is human nature to desire to recruit others as a way of justifying ourselves. To recruit, we often fail to just depend on the truth of the word but we tend to make everyone else as wrong as possible. Some folks go way too far, and their hatred blinds them and they create myths designed not to reveal truth, but to discredit. Others pick up on what they are teaching and fall into another trap - presuming that anyone who agrees with what they believe has to be intellectually honest, discerning, and well-studied. We believe that because it is what we desire to believe about ourselves. It is probably the most common modern form of idolatry, remaking ourselves in the best image possible. I have fallen into this trap myself. I am deeply ashamed and repentant for the part I played in this.
