Some of the topics covered are:
• How do we balance Matthew 6:31, “Take no thought…” with how we interact with the environment, climate change and using the Earth’s resources responsibly?
• Walking in darkness, but thinking you’re walking in the Light
• What are you willing to do to get where Yah wants you to be?
• How can we know we’re not engaged in Trivial Pursuits?
• Husbands and wives providing emotional support for each other?

… and much more!

Afterburn: also known in the world of fitness as the “afterburn effect”, simply put; The more intense the exercise, the more oxygen your body consumes afterward.

The same could be true as you build up your spiritual self. After an intense teaching session, you need answers as more thoughts and questions consume you in your spiritual growth.

Rabbi Steve Berkson, director of MTOI, provides an opportunity for the Afterburn to take place by additional thoughts and insight about what he just taught as well as answering questions from the local congregation and those watching the live stream.

After a brief refreshing of the last four parts Rabbi Steve Berkson continues in Matthew 6:24, making the point that there are those who would start a teaching at this verse. He states that when other teachers skip ahead in this chapter some of the meaning of what Yehsua was getting across to his followers would be lost without the context of the previous twenty-three verses.

Matthew 6:24 states a basic relational principle–that you cannot serve two masters. In this situation, as Rabbi Steve points out, it’s a question of who are you trying to please or impress, man or Elohim? If you try to please both you will become frustrated, ending up pleasing nobody because of how diametrically opposed each party is from the other. Yeshua is making the point that it is impossible.

Then, moving into verses 25-34 Rabbi Berkson begins a section on something that all of us can succumb to – worry. Yet, Yeshua assures and comforts us with the knowledge that we are the most important to our Father in all of his creation.

Connecting to the topic of ‘worry’ Rabbi Steve gets into what he calls a “problem with husbands and wives.” He provides some excellent counsel for the dynamics of the spousal relationship. He also encourages and exhorts you to become the man or the woman that Yah intended you to be–the journey starts from where in your life you are today.

Segueing from there into Matthew 11:28-30 Rabbi Berkson points out that Yeshua is speaking discipleship language when he talks about taking his yoke upon you. Taking on the yoke and burden of Yeshua is also the solution to worry. Rabbi Steve gives an unexpected and interesting perspective on the word ‘light’ in verse 30.

Moving forward, Rabbi Berkson links the teaching of Yeshua with the words of Paul in 2 Corinthians 6:1 through 7:2 as Paul writes to his assembly in Corinth about being ‘yoked’, or learning from unbelievers.
• What is a “believer”?
• What does it mean to be “lawless”?

Once again, Rabbi Steve Berkson delves deeper into scripture to uncover even more dimensions of Darkness and Light.

As he finishes the Tanakh portion of Darkness & Light, Rabbi Steve Berkson takes you to Proverbs 6:20-25 and makes the comparison of parental instruction and instruction from the Eternal Father. The way the author worded phrases in Proverbs was as a father talking to his son, but should be interpreted for you today as your heavenly Father talking to you. Rabbi Berkson also points out that the Torah not only functions as a light instructionally, but it also has a nurturing aspect as would a mother’s role in giving instruction to her children, giving comfort and encouragement.

What is meant by a “flattering tongue”?
How many different ways can you attach the Torah to yourself?
How is “deep” darkness defined?

Moving into the Brit Chadasha (New Testament), Rabbi Berkson expounds Matthew 4:13-17 as this passage includes a quote from Isaiah as a Messianic proof of Yeshua being the light. The people who were living in that area at that time were sitting in gloom and darkness, not only under the oppression of Rome, but also under the religious system of that time who’s leaders were hiding light from them.

Then staying within the context of Matthew 4, Yeshua the Light, Rabbi Berkson expounds further as he moves us into chapter 5 where we see Yeshua sitting on a hillside instructing his disciples along with the multitude about what it takes to also become a Light to the world.

In what way are you today “like the prophets of old”?
How do you “lay up treasure in Heaven”?
Why is the ‘so’ in the phrase, (Matt 5:16) “Let your light so shine before men”? What are the good works?
Is the definition of the English word ‘fulfill’ or ‘complete’ in Matthew 5:17, ‘to terminate’ or ‘do away with’?

Once again, Rabbi Steve Berkson delves deeper into scripture to uncover even more dimensions of Darkness and Light.

Some of the topics covered are:
• How do we know if we are walking in darkness? Is it up to us to find out or Abba to reveal?
• Should you try to convince someone that they should obey more than the Ten Commandments?
• Messiah Yeshua showed us what discipline looks like
• Is the immoral strange woman spoken of in Proverbs referring to a false religion?
• Proverbs 2:9 says “every good path”–is there more than one “good path” or many aspects of light in the simple path?

… and much more!

Afterburn: also known in the world of fitness as the “afterburn effect”, simply put; The more intense the exercise, the more oxygen your body consumes afterward.

Could there be those who are walking in varying degrees of darkness? How would they know? Is it possible that they think they’re walking in light, but are not? What would be your role in interacting with them?

How do you get to the place where you trust anyone to teach you how to walk out your faith? Are there out there those who are anointed and appointed by the Creator with the ability to help you navigate through life? How do you find those anointed and appointed?
“If you can’t get to the place of trust, you’ll never be able to progress. Progression forward comes out of a place of trust.” ~ Rabbi Berkson

Is it a good thing to be simple of mind and heart? What’s the benefit?

What is the main problem with unity in the Body of Messiah?

Once again, Rabbi Steve Berkson delves deeper into scripture to uncover even more dimensions of Darkness and Light.

• Can people go back into Darkness once they’ve been in the Light? (Isaiah 59:1-10)
• What does it mean to “speak falsehood”?
• How do “works” provide, or not provide, a “covering”? (Isaiah 59:6)
• What are the two types of Darkness?
• What is “thick” darkness?
• How does the Light work in us toward others around us?
• What does the phrase “In Your light we see light” mean?
• Are there those who could be called the walking dead?

Rabbi Steve Berkson identifies the problem people encounter while walking the straight-and-narrow. At some point they begin to doubt, which can turn into disbelief in the deliverance of Yah. This problem moves them slowly into darkness, a place of groping around and not finding their way. However, even in that darkness there is still mercy and compassion in that through the gift of repentance, then heeding the voice of an anointed-appointed, the Light can lead them back to the path of life.

Some of the topics covered are:
• Should you try to determine if others are living in darkness or light?
• How did Noah know which animals were clean and unclean?
• What about the Shekinah of Yahweh? How is it related to this teaching?
• Is “staying in the light” keeping oneself from worldly interests, i.e. drinking, movies, entertainment, etc?
• Like Israel at the Jordan ready to cross over, where are we on the “countdown” to us crossing over into His Kingdom?
• If Yeshua was there at the beginning, how was it then that creation started in darkness?

… and much more!
