Messiah Matters Season 1 Archive
We look at an email that was sent from one of our friends and listeners. This listener leads us to a website where we look at a post by Skip Moen. In this post Moen interacts with a track that was given to him, and responds to its five points. Is Dr. Moen on the right track? Should we challenge the these five major points of Christianity? Is Yeshua’s death on the cross the only way of salvation, or is there another way? Rob and Caleb talk about these issues and more on this weeks Rob & Caleb Show
The guys talk about unity within the Messianic movement. Should we strive for unity with those we disagree with theologically? How far off base does a person have to be before we say I can’t fellowship with you? Later in the show the guys talk about the Hebrew Language. Is it a “holy” language? Or did God write His Torah in common human language?
The guys discuss John 3. Was Yeshua speaking Hebrew, Aramaic, or Greek to “the teacher” of Israel? The answer might surprise you. Then the guys switch directions and talk about the 39 Melachot (sabbath laws) in the Mishnah. Should these laws be followed by believers? Do we have any evidence that Yeshua kept or rejected such laws? These topics and more on this weeks Rob & Caleb Show.
The guys welcome Dr. Skip Moen onto the show to clear up some questions about his theology. Several shows ago the we looked at a blog post by Skip that raised some questions about Dr. Moen’s understanding of Sola Scriptura, the virgin birth, but perhaps most importantly, Yeshua’s atoning work on the cross. Listen in as Rob and Caleb talk to Dr. Skip Moen.
Almost every week the guys talk about their good friend Adam Smith. This week they invite Adam on the show to talk about C. S. Lewis. Adam has been doing some personal study to try and get a better handle on what C. S Lewis believed and what his theology was. Although many people quote Lewis, and are well aware of his stories, many don’t know what his theology looked like. Join Rob, Caleb and Adam explore C. S Lewis’ and his theological beliefs.
The age old debate rages its ugly head again. Were the Apostolic Scriptures (New Testament), and more specifically the synoptic Gospels written in Hebrew or Greek? Or even Aramaic? Isn’t there tons of references by the early church fathers about a Hebrew Matthew, and a Hebrew Gospel written by Matthew? Doesn’t this prove that at least the book of Matthew was written in Hebrew? The guys say not so fast. Find out why Rob and Caleb still believe the Apostolic Scriptures, and even the book of Matthew were written in Greek.
The guys talk about TR Institute’s family camp, and Caleb’s visit to the Independent Messianic Conference. They also recap the summer conferences they have been at. Then they discuss Matthew 23:5ff, and the words Rabbi, Father and leader. Rob takes us on a journey through good VS bad scholarship and some of the claims that are given on the AENT website, and they also discuss the document known as “Q” in scholarly circles.
The guys talk, once again, about One Torah theology. There has been alot said recently about One Torah, many people are saying that such a theology is not Biblically founded. Rob & Caleb take these claims head on, and look to the Word to see what it says. Also, can the Torah be broken up in Civil, Ceremonial and Moral? The guys say no! Find out why on this weeks Rob & Caleb Show!
The guys talk about Yom Teruah. Some basics and interesting history come up. Then they move to Jonathan Cahn’s new book. Is there any truth to Cahn’s idea of the Shmita year? Does Cahn make good points? Is judgement coming on America? The guys rap up their time by talking about a blog post that just made waves in the Messianic realm.
The guys are in San Diego for the Evangelical Theological Society, and Society of Biblical Literature annual meeting. This week they record from their hotel room, and bring Gary Springer and Tim Hegg onto the show to discuss what the conference has been like, and some of the interesting papers they have seen.
