  Joseph Shulam – Mount Juliet, Tennessee The reading of this week is a double portion of Korah – Numbers 16:1 -18:32. Korah is the ultimate lesson in leadership in time of crisis. I suppose that in a life time of every leader there are moments that could be suggestive of the situation of Moses and his cousins the family of Korah. We have already seen in Numbers 12 the rebellion of Aaron and Miriam, the older brother and older sister of Moses who have been his first hand personal supporters and partners in the leadership of Israel out of…

By Joseph Shulam The Torah Portion (Parashah) this week is Ki Tisa from Exodus 30:11 – 34:35, it tells the story of the rebellion of the children of Israel at the very foot of Mount Sinai.  Moses was up on the top of Mount Sinai talking to God and receiving the Torah. The children of Israel were down at the foot of the mountain – prepared to receive the Torah – cleansed, and impatient and they ask Aaron to give them a god that will walk before them and lead them to the promised land and out of the desert. …

By Joseph Shulam – Thousand Oaks, California. This next Shabbat all the Synagogues in the world will start reading the Torah from Genesis 1:1 – They will read the story of Creation. In some Christian circles the story of Creation is under attack. It is not considered “historical” – it is considered as an ancient epic poem not to be taken literally. One of the reasons that some scholars have this opinion is that there are two ancient epic poems that precede Moses and both of them have creation narratives. I would like to share a short comparison of the…

By Joseph Shulam – From Beijing, China I am sitting in a meeting with brothers and sisters and one of the young man who is traveling with me through Asia is actually teaching on this last hour before lunch.  I gave teaching from 8:30 a.m. until 11:15 a.m. It is such a wonderful pleasure to hear the young men that are traveling with me teaching the Word of God and doing such a wonderful job.  I could put these young men in any pulpit, be it in a church or a synagogue or a University class-room and know that these…

By Joseph Shulam from home This Sabbath’s reading is from Leviticus 26-27 – the last chapters of Leviticus. The reading starts in verse 3 of chapter 26; “If you walk in My statutes and keep My commandments, and perform them . . .” There are 11 verses that say all the good things that are going to happen to those who keep God’s commandments.  After these blessings come 33 verses of all the bad things that are going to happen to those who don’t obey God and who go against His command and abhor His judgments.  Note that there are…

Jerusalem Prayer List May 23 2016 Joseph Shulam – From home in Israel It is nice to be at home.  It was nice to travel and teach a group of Chinese from all around Asia through the seven churches of Asia Minor.  Traveling through the Bible Lands, and Turkey is a Bible Land, is always inspirational and educational and fun.  Being in the places that you read about in the Bible is something very special.  We believe because we want to believe.  The Biblical truths are most often self evident to the soul that believes. This does not mean that…

We are in the middle of the Passover Holiday – in the Bible only the first day of the Feast is called “Passover” the rest of the 7 days of the Feast is called “The Feast of the Unleavened Bread.”  The Exodus from Egypt is the main model of salvation and redemption and deliverance throughout the whole biblical history.  In fact everything that we do as Jews and as Jewish Disciples of Yeshua the Messiah is somehow related to the Exodus.  On Friday night when we do the blessing of the “wine” and bread, the Kiddush, we do it in…
