Reader Feedback

Read some of the very interesting and encouraging stories shared by many of our readers from around the globe.

Jewish Expectations of Redemption

Elazar Brandt shares his presentation to the Hashiveinu Forum regarding what Jews are expecting the redemption to look like. Is there any room in Jewish eschatology for the messianic claims of Yeshua of Nazareth?

Shabbat: Some Practical Advice for Messianic Gentiles

What should Gentile Sabbath observance look like? How should a Gentile believer’s Sabbath differ from that of a Jewish believer? Toby Janicki offers an explanation of the Jewish perspective of Gentile Sabbath observance and gives some suggestions for making the Sabbath a delight as a Messianic Gentile.

Sabbath Candles

Lighting candles is one of the most recognizable rituals of the Sabbath. Aaron Eby explains the reason for lighting candles before the Sabbath begins and the proper way to carry out the ritual.

Shadow-Keeping

Colossians 2:16-17 is a verse that is often used by Christianity to diminish the commandment to keep the holy days. D. Thomas Lancaster shares how the wording is sometimes translated based on the translator's bias. God's holy festivals are a shadow of things to come, but who or what is casting the shadow?
