Does the Name of a Day Make a Difference?

The calendar was very important in Yeshua’s Jewish world. A week in his life consisted of seven day, just like our weeks today. There were some important differences, however. Does the name of a day make a difference? Try using Yeshua’s names of each day instead of Emperor Constantine’s and find out.

The Unrighteous Manager

No parable raises more ethical and moral questions than the parable that is traditionally known as – The Parable of the Unjust Steward. It is recorded in Luke 16.

The Scrolls: Jesus In Context

However old and widespread the notion of “the Bible” as a series of books may be, though, it is a misleading concept.  The books of the Bible are not books in the modern sense of the word and did not exist as books in the ancient world. To see them as such distorts the historical reality. Read the complete blog at -- https://therealyesua.blogspot.com/2018/01/the-scrolls-jesus-in-context.html
