David’s Greater Son

Part 1: Ruler of the Kingdom of Israel The faith of ancient Israel started with one man – Abraham – and his family. That family then grew to a tribe, and ultimately to a people. As that people found a homeland in Canaan, they began to organize themselves as a nation. The nation needed a… Read more »


What Was, Is

  Searching through various rooms in my brain with a candle, I look for some small hidden crusts of memory of Passovers past that I might sweep up with a feather onto a wooden spoon I and then wrap up into an interesting, educational and edifying article for Oasis. Perhaps munching on a piece of Matzah and… Read more »


60/60 Vision

It was a pivotal year in history; 1948 – only three years after a war that had engulfed the world. That conflict introduced weapons of destruction on such a massive scale that mankind has been trying to ban them ever since. New nations were being born (Republic of Korea) and old ones were either being… Read more »


The Replacement Theology Challenge Today

A dear friend works in a church connected to an apostolic leader who has just published a book that argues for replacement theology. As most teachers who hold to this very wrong theology, he does not like to call his theology “replacement” but “fulfillment.” According to this view, the church is the ongoing meaning of… Read more »


Who Can We Trust To Teach Us?

“Not many of you should presume to be teachers, my brothers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly.” (James 3:1) Who is Trustworthy? Who can we trust as our teachers in the Body of the Messiah? This question becomes quite pressing when we consider the conflicting doctrinal positions of those professing… Read more »

Idan’s Testimony I was born in Tel Aviv, in 1984. My father’s parents came to Israel from Yemen. My mother was born in Beit Shemesh, and her parents came to Israel from Morocco. I grew up in a traditionally Jewish home. About ten years after my parents married, my father came to faith in Yeshua…. Read more »


The Harvest

I remember harvesting when we were hippie farmers in New Mexico. A lot of work went into each crop before we could gather the fruits of our labors into storage for the winter. But there was nothing like the thrill of finally collecting ripe food from the earth. Not haphazardly did God choose the image… Read more »


Zionism & Justice

A few weeks ago I walked into an airport bookstore and saw Jimmy Carter’s new book on Israel and the Palestinians. There has been quite a commotion over this book. Carter used the word ‘apartheid’ to describe the potential of Israeli policies – I feared the worst. What I found was a rehashing of the… Read more »


Gentile Kings & Jewish Prophets

As a high school student in the early 1960’s I dreamed for world peace. The concept of one benign government that could unify the globe in justice and compassion appealed to me. After graduation, I advanced to the draft-dodging, demonstrating in the streets phase. By late 1968 I had failed to unify the world. It… Read more »


Who Is My Neighbor?

“Who is my neighbor?” the religious man asked Yeshua. The haunting answer to this question still pricks our conscience down through the centuries. Our neighbor is the one in need of our mercy and attention. Yeshua’s command, “Go and do likewise” challenges us not to pass by those we see bleeding and wounded on the… Read more »
