You are about to embark on an exciting journey through God's word. But first you need to understand what it really means to be a follower of Rabbi Yeshua (Jesus), the greatest revolutionary that ever lived: the Messiah of Israel.
In this section you will find great reward and blessing in studying God's Holy Word. The Holy Bible is NOT a magazine; however, many people who claim to know Him, treat it as such. There is no daily reading of God's Word ... let alone study of it. What will God say to us when we get to Heaven if we have not taken time to know Him - and grow in Him - by study of His Word? Will he say, "Why did you not want, or even try, to study what I left for you. My prophets and servants (over 40 of them) who wrote in over 1,500 years of time ... many not even knowing the others had written, or were writing ... informed you of my love and principles and miracles. I gave my BEST for you - my Only Son, the Mashiach (Messiah) - yet you would not spend time with me studying my Holy Word."
In the Brit Chadashah (the New Testament) we read that Jesus said to the Jews who believed in him, “You are truly my disciples if you continue in my word." - John (Yochanan) 8:31 NOTE: "John" is the English form of Iohannes, the Latin form of the Greek name Ιωαννης (Ioannes), itself derived from the Hebrew name יוֹחָנָן (Yochanan) meaning "YAHWEH is gracious".
Actually, a better Hebraic sense transliterated into English would be: "So Yeshua said to the Judeans who had trusted him, “If you keep studying and learn what I teach, then you are really my talmidim."
So, what is the difference between disciples and talmidim?
DISCIPLES OR TALMIDIM
A disciple is usually referred to as one who accepts and helps to spread the teachings of a famous person. But to Jesus the lifestyle of a disciple was much more than that. We have to understand the language and culture of His day. Jesus was NOT just gathering student-followers. He was a rabbi in the original sense of the word of that day. He was ... and is today ... gathering talmidim.
Jesus was born, grew up, and spent his ministry among people who knew Scripture by memory, who debated its application with enthusiasm, and who loved God with all their hearts, all their souls and all their might. (Torah: Deuteronomy 6:5).
For Jews living in Jesus' day, there were three separate educational venues. They were as follows:
So, are YOU ready to be one of Jesus' talmidim? You can learn the whole Brit Chadashah (the New Testament) in English, Spanish or French right here FREE ... plus Rabbinical Studies ... and then you can go teach others. But most of all, you will make Jesus very proud of you. After all, Jesus promised, "If you remain faithful to my word ... continue in my teaching" ... you will be the Great Rabbi's student: You will be like Him and He promised YOU will do even greater works. “Most assuredly, I say to YOU who believe in Me, the works that I do YOU will do also; and greater works than these YOU will do, because I go to My Father."
