In this episode Christopher goes over how analysis of the KJV tends to be biased to extreme extents on the pro and con side. So in this episode Christopher looks at the KJV through unbiased analysis through the history of the formation of this translation, and it's use today, as well as to what to think about when selecting translations.
In this short podcast exclusive episode, Christopher briefly discusses Yom Kippur for those with medical conditions that make it impossible or dangerous for them to fast and how your fearlessness of this fact turns it back on it's tenants of Judaism and Christianity if you do not heed the words of the sages in Yom 83-84 in terms of the exemption.
Christopher was asked by a friend if the Torah prohibits "profit" he was cited the verse Deuteronomy 23:19, so Christopher jumps into Deuteronomy 23 to put the passages into context. The conclusion is the Torah does not contradict Paul nor visa versa with this passage. But Christopher did come up with something very interesting in terms of Deuteronomy 23:21 where it discusses "interest" being collected from a "gentile". Yet, the Hebrew doesn't say "gentile", it doesn't use the words "goy" or "ger" instead it uses l'achin. Find out what this word means and how it blows to smithereens the Two House theology and One Torah theology. This is one of the many reasons it is important to learn Hebrew and Aramaic.
The question I receive often is about the tradition of the kippah, why do orthodox and Lapid Jewish men keep the halakha in terms of this and the Hebrew Roots Movement is skittish about it? In this episode I get into what it represents and why it is we wear the kippah.
Christopher dives into Matthew 23 and Mark 7 in context from the textural clues and the context of the first century as well as through language and textural parallels.
In this episode Christopher announces the production of his new book "The Rabbinic Didache" he goes into the three translations found within the book, the history of the Didache, the Didache's application. As well as what to expect from this book and the importance of Lapid Jews, as well as Messianic, Christians and Hebrew Roots people to look at this book.
Hebrew Roots and Messianic people should be easily be able to see the fallacies in the September 23rd predictions. Christopher discusses the issues and also what Revelation 12 is really saying.
In this lesson Christopher discusses why we have 40 days of repentance, 10 of which are consecrated repentance, during the 40 days of Awe between Tisha B'Av and Yom Kippur. Christopher looks to the Scripture which shows the the attributes of this time, how they are etched in the New Testament but rarely seen, and how the halakha is based on the Scripture premise that G-d has also reminded us of in birth and renewal.
In today's western society death is called "choice", the Jewish and Christian communities are allowing the ways of Egypt to creep into our society through what is socially acceptable. This is a crucial message as we approach Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, because we learn that within the Hebrew language of the Old Testament we have 5 words for "life" and the "soul" which are synonymous. And we have only 2 words for "death". Christopher discusses how the focus on "life" is a concept found all through Judaism and Christianity, and we connect with G-d through this concept through our environments we create and give birth to around us.
In this episode Christopher discusses the preparation, in the month of Elul to enter into the new year of Rosh Hashanah. He discusses how G-d fulfills this every day in the roles of man and wife, and how during this time G-d supercharges us to prepare for the time between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Christopher also briefly discusses how many misinterpret Paul when he says that women should ask their husband if they have a question in the synagogue. Paul is actually showing the amazing empowerment of how they influence their husband or significant other through this action through application.
In this episode Christopher addresses Deuteronomy 30:14 through the eyes of Rebbe Nachman's words in Likutei Halakhot and Lukutei Maharon as well as further explanation through the words of Yeshua and the Zohar.
In this episode Christopher discusses his missteps in his faith because of immaturity. He discusses many of the things he has seen from others new to the Lapid Jewish faith, the Messianic faith, and the Hebrew Roots and how to walk in a more mature reflection of the Messiah and some of the struggles they will have along the way. This is the perfect episode for those young in this faith as a guideline on how to handle certain situations and also how to learn from the mistakes they will inevitably make.
Christopher examines the biblical characteristics of what makes something kashrut (kosher) and realizes the Hebrew Roots movement only promotes and fulfills 1/3 of the laws that makes something kosher. Christopher gets into the process of kosher and why us Jews do what we do in keeping kosher and where it is found within the Scripture.
Christopher discusses the issues with the "Exodus 12:2 Only" theology in terms of Jewish new years. This argument comes up every Rosh Hashanah and the error in this idea causes huge discrepancies in theology that causes the ideas of teshuva (repentance) and yetzirah (creation) to become null in void and causes the Jewish calendar to be the most inaccurate of all if one holds to the ideal of there only being 1 new year. Christopher shows why we have 4 New Years which can be seen through application and other Bible passages.
Being a Hebrew and Aramaic Linguist, Christopher has looked at many base texts as well as translations and offers some honest insight into translations and how to choose translations that are best for you. He also gets into things the marketing departments of most Messianic and Hebrew Roots Bibles don't want you to know when it comes to accuracy of translations. Christopher also gives some insights into the translations he quotes in his video and mp3 teachings.
These teachings are by Christopher Fredrickson and air on several Christian radio stations as well as Yeshiva Radio. In Brutal Planet, Christopher discusses the ties of the New Testament with Rabbinic Judaism.
