Yeshua Jesus’ Teachings and the Fulfillment of the Torah

The Ten Commandments are foundational to the Jewish faith and should also be foundational to Followers of Yeshua (Christians). As God gave them to Moses on Mount Sinai after the Exodus, Jacob’s “family” officially became the “nation” of Israel. Compare these details with Yeshua’s answer the scribe who asked Him to define the “greatest” commandment. The Lord never referenced the “Decalogue,” the 10 Commandments. Doesn’t that seem odd? Hang on, maybe He did…

Counting the Omer

What is the Counting of the Omer? Are You Preparing for His Power and Presence?

Starting from the second night of Passover, the Bible encourages us to all become “Pentecostals” by initiating a forty-nine-day minor festival culminating on the Day of Pentecost—“Pentecost,” meaning “fifty.” The first fruits festival, known as “The Counting of the Omer” or simply “The Omer,” marks a culmination of three unique historical events and has enormous significance in the life of a disciple of Yeshua – Jesus.

Name of God Baal, Adonai, Yeshua, Jesus, Rabbi Jason Sobel Fusion Global

The Names of God: Baal

What most people probably don’t think of when they encounter the name “Baal” is the God of Israel. You might be surprised to discover that this name is not only directly attributed to God—it is one that God will refer to Himself by, as we shall see momentarily.

Was it the Last Supper or the Last Seder Rabbi jason Sobel Fusion Global passover

Was the Last Supper the Last Seder?

Each year, as we approach Passover and Easter, we start receiving questions about whether “The Last Supper” was a Passover Seder. Many Christians are surprised to learn that interpretations and theories vary widely about the nature of the meal Jesus shared with his disciples the night before His death.

Understanding the Biblical Foundations of Israel from a Messianic rabbinic perspective

What are the Biblical Foundations of Israel

Since the Hamas massacre of October 7th, Hamas, the Palestinian Authority, and their sympathizers have peddled a particular refrain: “History didn’t start on October 7th—this act comes after 75 years of struggle.” Setting the inane, false moral equivalence of the statement aside, it does contain a partial truth. People are correct to say that history did start on October 7th, 2023, but just as importantly, it didn’t begin on May 14th, 1948, either. If we want to think biblically about this issue, we must make the claim that, technically, history started “In the beginning” when God began His creation.

Adar, Biblical Calendar, Hebrew, Rabbi Jason Sobel

Adar: The Month of Joy in the Hebrew Calendar

There are many joyous dates on the Jewish calendar, but besides Purim, none affect an entire month, causing it to be auspicious and joyous. Purim is the celebration of Israel’s rescue from the Persian leader Haman’s genocidal plot (as recorded in the Book of Esther). The Rabbis teach that Purim is like Yom Kippur (the “Day of Atonement”). While on Yom Kippur we achieve holiness through the mortification of the flesh and long hours of prayer, we realize that same level of holiness on Purim through feasting, celebration, and joy.  

Shevat, Biblical Calendar, Hebrew, Rabbi Jason Sobel

Shevat: The Month of Blessings and Fruitfulness in the Hebrew Calendar

According to Tradition, the first of Shevat is when Moses began giving his final address to Israel. “Across the Jordan in the land of Moab, Moses began to explain this Torah saying, ‘Adonai our God spoke to us at Horeb saying: ‘You have stayed long enough at this mountain’” (Deuteronomy 1:5-6). For the entire month of Shevat, he would sit in the meeting tent and elucidate the Torah.    

Who is the messiah, Rabbi Jason Sobel Fusion Global

Who is the Messiah? Is it Jesus?

Amidst the narratives of history and the papyrus of prophecy, a singular thread weaves through the tapestry of biblical literature: the concept of a Messiah. This notion, richly veiled in expectation and divine mystery, has captivated the hearts of the faithful and stirred the minds of scholars. The title “Messiah,” derived from the Hebrew word “mashiach,” meaning “anointed,” was an honor bestowed upon kings and priests—a symbol of one chosen by God to lead with divine authority.

Tevet, Biblical Calendar, Hebrew, Rabbi Jason Sobel

Tevet: The Month of Divine Grace in the Hebrew Calendar

2 Kings 25 tells us Nebuchadnezzar began Babylon’s siege of Jerusalem on the 10th day of Tevet (a fast day known as Asarah B’Tevet). Ironically, the Jewish people adopted the name “Tevet” during the Babylonian exile. It is believed to connote “sinking” or “immersing.”
