Worship leader Troy Mitchell’s debut album, “Yoke of the King,” brings a fresh and authentic voice to Messianic Judaism. Mitchell’s original songs draw from the Gospels, the Hebrew of the Tanach, the Midrash, synagogue prayers, and first-century liturgy—even utilizing the Greek of the Apostolic Scriptures—to bring a fusion of Chassidic joy, gospel hope, jazz, and soulish prayer focused on the light of Messiah.
While there have been a plethora of commentaries on the Didache from Christian and even Jewish points of view, this is the first major work from a Messianic Jewish perspective.

The Concealed Light is an inspiring book that introduces the reader into the rich background and meaning behind the names of the Messiah.

Tu Bishvat, the New Year for Trees, is a beautiful time to herald new life after a long and dormant winter. In the seventeenth century, a new custom arose to celebrate Tu Bishvat with a seder, a ceremonial meal inspired by Passover.
Bloom, Vine of David’s new Tu Bishvat Haggadah, is inspired by the story of the early pioneers of the modern State of Israel. This seder reflects upon the dreams of a Jewish national homeland in the Promised Land throughout the centuries and its culmination with Zionism in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Bloom is simple and not deeply mystical. It focuses the modern return of the Jewish people to their land as a part of the broader plan of world redemption.

A Messianic Jewish Perspective on Kashrut. Revealing the Biblical Sources of Dietary Laws in Judaism
There is much more to the Bible’s food laws than saying, "Hold the bacon." Learn what the Bible, ancient Rabbis, and the Apostles teach about eating.

Messianic musician, songwriter, and worship leader Troy Mitchell’s second release, “Light of the World,” captures the distant gleam of the spiritual light which will shine from Zion—the revelation of the kingdom. Mitchell delivers his signature blend of acoustic soul food, rock, reggae, gospel hope, and Chassidic joy in English, Hebrew, and Greek.
The biblical education of Jewish children begins with Leviticus, a book largely about the sacrificial system. The animal sacrifices, however, are especially repugnant to modern Christians who see them as a temporary provision until Messiah's final atonement for sin. By studying the sacrifices we gain insight into God's instructions for approaching him in worship, and a better understanding of Yeshua's work on our behalf.
