Some of the topics covered are:
• Why do some in the Torah Observant community disregard the book of Hebrews?
• More thoughts on the unadulterated milk of the Word of Yahweh
• In Hebrews 5:12–to what do the “first elements of the Words of Elohim” refer?

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.

In the last episode Rabbi Steve Berkson unpacked more of the nuances of being in covenant by diving into the letter to the Hebrews, the Book of Hebrews. He moved at record pace going through the first four chapters in one setting.

Now we understand and should try to relate to the First-Century audience as the author of the letter makes the case for Messiah Yeshua’s place in the “big picture” and in the lives of the individuals as their standard of lifestyle was about to go away–the destruction of the Temple by the Romans and the suspension of the Aaronic/Levitical priesthood.

With that said we now go into chapter five where the author explains the differences between the Aaronic/Levitical priesthood and the Melchizedekian priesthood.

Then from chapter five Rabbi Steve touches on chapter six where we see a passage that has perplexed many, verses 4 through 6, specifically the word ‘impossible’. Does the passage tell us that some are doomed to destruction with no return?

If you’ve ever been told that the Book of Hebrews is just too hard to understand, then you definitely should watch this episode. Rabbi Berkson breaks down verse by verse, passage by passage, passionately relating the revealed meanings so that you understand and benefit.

Questions:
• If Messiah Yeshua takes on the role of High Priest (Heb 3:1) and does not qualify for the Aaronic - Priesthood, how can He be in that role?
• What “perfected” Messiah Yeshua? What do we struggle with?
• How does one become “dull of hearing”? What does it mean to be “dull of hearing”?
• What are “dead works”?

Some of the topics covered are:
• Why did Messiah Yeshua have to come as a human-being?
• More about coming boldly to the throne of favor
• Do we know what happened when Yeshua died and when was the temple destroyed?
• How is it that Messiah Yeshua was “apart from sin”? (Hebrews 4:15)

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.

This exciting episode begins the letter to the Hebrews. The goal of going through this letter is to get to chapter 7 and verse 22 where it speaks of Yeshua being the guarantor of a “better covenant”. What does this mean and hasn’t it caused a lot of trouble due to mainstream Christianity’s interpretation of this verse? But, in order to do that, Rabbi Steve Berkson starts us on the journey from the beginning of the letter in order to understand, through context, what the author is saying leading up to chapter 7.

Questions:
• Why was the letter to the Hebrews written? What was going on at that time?
• What happens when the structure of your way of life no longer exists?
• Where does Messiah Yeshua fit into the picture of what was happening at that time?
• What perishes and what remains?
• Does the letter to the Hebrews talk about transitioning to a different set of laws?
• Hebrews 4:10 talks about resting from one’s own works–what could this mean?

Moving forward from last week, Rabbi Steve Berkson takes us into Romans chapters 11 and 12, then to Ephesians chapter 2, where he interprets the writing of the apostle Paul quite a bit differently than most of us have ever heard taught before.

Because of this, Rabbi Steve clarifies further his position on the understanding of “grace” or favor, specifically whether it is merited or unmerited. Could it be both? In this message we see the beauty of the kindness and faithfulness of our Creator as He offers the opportunity to enter into His Covenant even though we have done nothing up to that point to deserve it.

Questions:
• Romans 10:17 talks of “hearing by the Word of God”, is there an underlying message that is lost in the translation?
• What exactly is the “Good News”?
• What is the “disease” we see in the Bible from start to finish?
• All people before Acts 2 could not be “righteous” because they didn’t have the Holy Spirit?
• Can you empty yourself?

Some of the topics covered are:
• More about “called and chosen”
• Don’t we need to…?
• How does being “chosen” relate to salvation?
• If none of us know that we are chosen, how can we have the assurance or hope in all that we are going through?

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.

As he continues in Romans chapters 10 and 11, Rabbi Steve Berkson has received some clear insight on a couple of troublesome verses. Understanding the context of the letter to the Roman assembly is the key, as he explains in the first part of this teaching. Not only the context in this letter, but also, context from the Tanakh as the apostle Paul references it time and time again to establish his points. Context is critical to gaining the correct understanding and interpretation, especially when it has to do with the writings of Paul.

Questions:
- When the word ‘saved’ or ‘delivered’ is used, is it clearly understood, ‘saved’ or ‘delivered’ from what? Does it refer to a future event?
- What does it mean to be “sent”? Isn’t there a “Great Commission” on all of us?
- Some teach that Israel has been “replaced” because God is done with them–is that true?
- What is pre-destination, divine selection and being chosen? Are they one and the same?
- What is it that a Gentile has that a Jew would be jealous of?

Can you say that the things you are suffering now because of your faith are not worthy to be compared to the honor (glory) that shall be revealed in you?

Who’s the ‘he’ that “searches the hearts”?

Is it true that nothing can separate us from the love of Messiah?

Romans 10:4 reads that Messiah is the end of the law for righteousness–what does the word ‘end’ mean in that sentence?

Did Paul misquote Moses in Romans 10:6-8?

As we’ve progressed through the book of Romans, we see how the apostle Paul addresses two major issues among his congregation: 1. The rift between those who are native-born Israeli and those of the nations (Gentiles), and, 2. Paul refers to at least two sets of “laws”, the Torah and the “law of sin and death”.

In this teaching, Rabbi Steve Berkson slowly and methodically takes us through Romans chapters 8 through 10, untangling 2,000 years of erroneous understanding and twisted teaching. He exposes the more sensible scenario in which Paul would actually be writing to his Roman congregation about being Torah observant and not the other way around.
