This Tuesday August 3rd at 6:30pm our regular Torah study time will feature a presentation on "A Jewish Sermon on the Mount." Boaz Michael of FFOZ will present this material.
Learn the words of Yeshua from a Messianic Jewish perspective. "A Jewish Sermon on the Mount: Exploring the Core Teachings of Jesus from a Hebraic Perspective" introduces the Hebrew idioms, Jewish contexts, and rabbinic methods at work in Yeshua's most famous sermon. Jewish Sermon on the Mount provides a brief introduction to Matthew 5-7 using a new, Hebrew-based translation of the New Testament that allows English readers to see the Hebraisms of the Master's teaching and the richness of the Hebrew words.
Enjoy a challenging and inspiring look at Yeshua' teachings and the transformative message
of the Sermon on the Mount.
- See Jewish parallels to Gospel texts and find out why Bible scholars believe the parallels are important for greater understanding.
- Discover Hebrew words that are impossible to translate into English and how translators deal with these difficult words. See the words-understand the concepts they represent and expand your understanding of the Bible.
- Hear the compelling story and see the New Testament translation of Franz Delitzsch, a nineteenth century Christian Bible-translator considered one the greatest lights of Messiah to the Jewish people.
Learn and see what was so distinctive to Jesus' teaching in this passage that produced such a response, "the crowd was amazed at his teaching, for he was teaching them as a man of authority, and not like the soferim" (Matthew 7:28-29).
