Nazarene Israel News (19 April 2024) gives the most current news updates about praise reports, prayer requests, projects, and current events in Nazarene Israel. This week’s edition includes an update on current projects, prayer requests, and the latest parasha study, Parasha Toldot 2024.

Shabbat shalom, Nazarenes.


a. Prayers for upcoming documentary to brother Judah

A while back we asked for prayers for a documentary we are currently making for brother Judah. We expect this to be a large project, with several chapters covering crucial topics. And we want to word everything in love, the way Elohim wants it. We are thankful for everyone’s prayers.

Norman recently completed the writing and the recording process for the first segment. Now the next step is the video editing process. Would you all please continue prayers for successful video editing?

And also, would you especially pray for Yahweh’s favor with YouTube and the other social media platforms, so that we are able to speak the truth in love to brother Judah, as we are commanded to do? (YouTube could object to the content on any number of grounds, but we are addressing life and death issues, so we are asking for everyone’s prayers.)

We thank Yahweh for your prayers toward His Son’s kingdom work.

Ephesim 4:15 
15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Messiah— 


a. Parasha Toldot: Yaakov I loved, but Esav I hated

In Parasha Toldot, we will explore the stories of two brothers, Esav and Yaakov, of whom Yahweh said, “Yaakov I loved, but Esav I hated.”

Malachi 1:2-3 
2 “I have loved you,” says Yahweh. “Yet you say, ‘In what way have You loved us?’ Was not Esau Jacob’s brother?” Says Yahweh. “Yet Jacob I have loved; 
3 But Esau I have hated, And laid waste his mountains and his heritage for the jackals of the wilderness.”

a. New Moon 3rd Hebrew month: 9 May 2024

The new moon of the third Hebrew month is expected to be seen on 9 May 2024. The date will be confirmed upon the official sighting (or by the 30-day default). Please remain attentive for updates.

Note: 11 March 2024 was the confirmed declaration of Rosh HaShanah (the beginning of the Hebrew year). For more details, please visit Torah Calendar News 2024.

b. Upcoming Discipleship Meetings: 

All meetings are at 8 AM Colombian time (always UTC-5, but watch your Daylight Savings Time adjustments). The Discipleship Meeting is a discussion between disciples. It is generally 1-hour long but may run longer depending on how the Spirit leads. For more on NI’s description of discipleship, please see NI’s Discipleship program.

10 May 2024- New moon meeting (expected)
19 May 2024- Shavuot (Pentecost)

Note: If the monthly Discipleship Meeting coincides with the weekly Shabbat Meeting, the Shabbat Meeting will take precedence, and new moon discussion will be combined with the Shabbat meeting. However, in the case of a Feast Day Meeting coinciding with a Shabbat meeting, the Feast Day Meeting will take precedence.

c. Torah Calender News Updates.

Below is the updated feast schedule for 5784-5 / 2024. Rosh HaShanah and the first month feast dates are confirmed. Seventh month feast dates are “expected dates“. These dates may change by a day or two, depending on when the new moon day of the 7th month (September 2024) is confirmed.

d. Why the FirstFruits Torah Calendar?

Every year we receive questions about the Firstfruits Torah calendar and why it differs from Karaite, Jewish, and Messianic, and Equinox calendars. The different calendars that exist can (and do) cause a lot of confusion. But if we follow Scripture without adding or taking away from Yahweh’s word, we see that there are significant errors in the Karaite, Jewish, Messianic, and Equinox calendars.

We explain these errors in the following studies, as well as why it is important to follow the true Firstfruits Torah calendar in order to observe Yahweh’s feasts at His appointed times only.
