Why a Jewish-Christian Faith?

Welcome to Nazarene Israel, the original first century Jewish-Christian faith in the Messiah Yeshua (often called Jesus). Scripture calls this original faith the sect of the Nazarenes, at Acts 24:5. Ma’asei (Acts) 24:5 5 “For we have found this man a plague, a creator of dissension among all the Jews throughout the world, and a […]

The Flock and Her Shepherds

The Revelation story has given us a rich perspective from which we can analyze the trends affecting us today. Yet, to see the big picture and analyze the trends most effectively, let us review from the beginning. As we explain in Nazarene Israel, Adam and Havvah (Eve) fell from Yahweh’s favor because they chose to […]

The Bride’s Journey Home

In Nazarene Israel we show how Avraham and Israel’s children were scattered out into the world in order to fulfill the promises given to the patriarchs. Every family, every nation, and every clan had to receive of their genetics, so that the whole world could become heir to the promise of salvation in Messiah Yeshua, […]

Come All the Way Out

Revelation 12:13-17 says that when the dragon saw he had been cast to earth, he persecuted the woman (true Israel) who gave birth to the male child (Yeshua). The woman was given two wings of a great eagle that she might fly into the wilderness to her place. There she is nourished for a time […]

What is the Church?

As we show in Nazarene Israel, the original faith of the apostles was called the “Nazarene sect” (i.e., Nazarene Israel). However, there were several other variants of the faith in the first century. One of these was called Christianity. Christianity is similar to the Nazarene faith, except they do not believe in keeping the full […]

Messianism: The Church in Transition

In Fulfilling the Great Commission, we show that the Messianic movement is essentially an extension of Protestant and independent Christianity; and because it is an extension of Protestant/Independent Christianity, the Messianics make doctrinal mistakes similar to the Protestants and independent Christians. One of the key errors Protestant and independent Christians make is that they fail […]

Hearing Yeshua’s Voice

As we show in the Nazarene Israel study, the original faith was called Nazarene Israel. In Fulfilling the Great Commission we show that Nazarene Israel was unified, and that it had a clergy of servant-leadership that heard and obeyed Yahweh’s voice. Nazarene Israel was replaced by Catholic Christianity. Catholic Christianity established a corrupted doctrine, and […]

Chapter 12:

No Other Foundation

In, “The Separation of Assembly and State” we showed how Judaism, Catholicism, Islam, and Protestantism are like four clusters of arrows that have each missed the bullseye a little. Judaism misses the mark in that it claims Yahweh gave the rabbis the authority to rewrite the Torah. Catholicism misses the mark in that it claims […]

About Sacrifices

Many scholars teach that because Yeshua died for our sins, the animal sacrifices written in Torah are now done away with. Others question this, pointing out how Yeshua said that none of the commandments in the Torah (the Laws of Moses) would pass away so long as heaven and earth still exist. Mattithyahu (Matthew) 5:17-19 […]

What Was the Original Faith?

When I was a child, I was taught in church that the words Christian and Nazarene were synonyms, and that they referred to the same group of people. Years later, I realized that this was not correct. One of the Catholic Church founders, Epiphanius of Salamis, wrote a book in the early fourth century called […]

Chapter 1:

What Was the Original Faith?

Do you want to keep the faith the Messiah taught His apostles to keep? Some people are quick to claim that the Messiah’s disciples were all “Christians,” but is this really what the Biblical record shows? What if the Bible showed that the Messiah and His disciples thought of themselves as Nazarene Israelites, and the […]
