A. Sabbath is "Saturday." - The Sabbath is as old as the creation of the world. Bereshiyt [Genesis] 2:2 establishes that the Sabbath as ordained by ELOHIM is on the seventh day of the week, the one which is called in the Gregorian (Roman) calendar "Saturday." (Gen. 2:2)
B. Sabbath is Holy.- Bereshiyt 2 Verse 3 Shows ELOHIM's attitude about the Sabbath -- He blessed it, and made it "holy" - va�y'qad�deish -- separated for Him. (Gen.… Continue

INTERNATIONAL NAZARENE BEIT DIN: ABORTION HALAKHA
The Scriptures are the standard for the lives of Nazarene Jews not only in its direct commands, but also in its example and overall plan. It is clear that YHVH has a plan and purpose for each of His creations, and the destroying of innocent life is rebellion against that plan.
The fact that the word "abortion" does not appear in the Bible does not mean… Continue

Persons who complete this conversion process will be halachicly regarded as Jewish within Nazarene Judaism.
These conversions are NOT accepted for immigration to Israel at this time.
This halacha is for a person to be halachicly regarded as Jewish and is not a process to make a person "saved."
The complete halachah is below:

A misunderstanding common in the church today is the concept that
Torah and Grace are mutually exclucive ideas. For exmple one author writes:
A believer can not be under law and
under grace at the same time.
(God's Plan of the Ages; Louis T. Tallbot; 1970; p. 83)
Now let us be noble Bereans to see if this is true. Let us ask ourselves:
"How were people saved in 'Old Testament' times? Were they saved by works
or by grace?
The fact is that… Continue

Marriage, Divorce and YHWH
Do Matthew And Ben Sira Contradict?
By James Trimm
It has been alleged in the past that there is a contradiction between Matthew 5:31-32 and 19:3-9 which allows a man to divorce his wife only for the cause of “fornication”, and Ben Sira who advises his student to divorce the wife who “does not go as you direct” (Ben Sira 25:25-26).
But do these passages truly contradict one another? One basic rule of Hermeneutics (objective rules for… Continue

I have recently made some discoveries which shed even more light on
Romans chapter 10 and I would like to share them with you.
To best understand this new insight, it is best to incorporate it into
the whole of that light which has already been shed on this section of
Romans. So for some of you this entire article will be revolutionary,
however even for those who have studied with us for many years will
find a new nugget of insight… Continue

An Excerpt from my spiritual warfare book War in Heaven http://www.lulu.com/nazarene
We live in a Hellenistic (Greek based) culture. This culture has unfortunately colored our understandings of the Scriptures, often in ways we do not realize. The Hellenistic Roman culture has had a major impact on our own. The commentaries on the Scriptures that we read are all to often unduly influenced by Hellenistic, Roman cultural views. Many books… Continue

One of the halachic principles which distinguished the Essenes from the Pharisees (whom the Essenes termed “Wall Builders”) was a principle the Essenes called “Yesod HaB’riah” (The Principle/Foundation of Creation).
The Pharisees were divided on the issue of divorce. The House of Shammai allowed
divorce only in the case of an “unclean matter” while the House of Hillel allowed divorce
even if the wife only spoiled a dish, and Akiva stretched this to allow a man to… Continue

The Body of Messiah is being attacked by Mar Sheol (the Lord of the Pit). I love YHWH with all my heart. I will feed his sheep and I will act to protect His sheep. I will not stand by and allow wolves to destroy the flock. I refuse to stand by and watch the Lord of the Pit transform this last days restoration of the Sect of the Nazarenes into a bizarre polygamist cult.
It is good to know that so many of you are standing by us in this matter.

A NAZARENE LOOKS AT THE BOOK OF MORMON
By James Scott Trimm
THE ANTI-NOMIAN BOOK OF MORMON
The Book of Mormon makes a major mistake from a Nazarene standpoint. The Book of Mormon does not represent the teachings of the Bible, but instead presents the teachings Protestant Christians have BELIEVED are in the Bible.
Although the Book of Mormon, unlike the Bible, presents a continuous story line running from "Old Testament Times" through into… Continue

I am anti "Christ"
At least I am if by "Christ" you refer to the Christian version of
"Jesus" who came to "free you from the bondage of the Law". This
Torah-less "Jesus" is not my Messiah, Yeshua, the Word made flesh, the
living Torah, is my Messiah.
Many have asked "Why have the Jews rejected Jesus?"… well let me make
this clear, the only "Jesus" that most Jewish people have ever been
exposed to is the "Jesus" that supposedly came to "free them… Continue

In this movement we often deal with the question “Is the Torah for today?”. Ironically those that teach the Torah has been done away with encourage their audience to tithe, on the other hand, those that maintain that the Torah is for today, often teach that the tithe is not for today!
Many in the Torah Observant movement have been taught that the tithe only coes to Levites, or only goes to the Temple and is only on agricultural produce of the land of Israel. As a result, Torah… Continue

Over the last week we have been flooded with emails, many from persons who had, until now, studied under the teaching ministry of Moshe K. . The common denominator of these emails is that they were all shocked and dismayed by Moshe K. recent actions and teaching. Just this last week, Moshe K. sent out an email soliciting single women to match into polygamous marriages. And all of this is being done in the names of “Messianic” and “Nazarene”.

The Apocrypha Unveiled
There are thirty nine books about which Jews and Christians agree form the text of the Tanak. There are also thirteen books about which they do not universally agree as to whether they should be in the canon of the Tanak or not. These books are known as the “Apocrypha”.
The “Apocrypha” are a group of books which seem to have been part of the canon of the earliest “Christians” but which were not adopted by Rabbinic Judaism into the Masoretic Text, and… Continue

The Systematic theology of the "One Faith Two Expression" theology or "Two Torah" Theology is the theology of much of Messianic Judaism including the majority of the IAMCS and the UMJC.
