Hebrew In Israel | Is The Torah A Religion? – Learn Torah

Yoel Halevi One comments

The Oxford dictionary defines religion as the following:

  1. The belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods.

          ‘ideas about the relationship between science and religion’

  1. 1.1count noun A particular system of faith and worship.

          ‘the world’s great religions’

  1. 1.2count noun A pursuit or interest followed with great devotion.

          ‘consumerism is the new religion’

After giving the modern English definition of the word, we ask ourselves “Is the Torah a religion?”

Where does the practice of baptism come from?  Yoel walks us through its history explaining the linguistic, biblical, and cultural factors of ritual washing and purity from Genesis to the time of Yeshua and into today.  This lecture was given during the feast of Sukkot 2016 to a group from the US.

Hebrew In Israel | Hosh’a-Na and The Name – Learn Torah

Yoel Halevi 2 comments

An interesting point about the Hosha-Na practice:

We must remember that the time frame I am talking about is at a time where many had already refrained from speaking the name of God, so I use the idea of hinting in this argument about The Name.  The practice of not speaking God’s name has been traced by some scholars to the 3rd and even 4th centuries.
