Why Does God Do That?

I think we all have trouble sitting with the idea of no explanation. This spills over into every aspect of my own spiritual life. Maybe yours, too? I struggle with the why of so many things–big things like hell, violence, inequality, suffering, and disease; and small things like why I can’t keep my days and nights straight.

Passover: The Clash of Cultures

The Almighty is working out His vision and goal for this world and is not limited by the natural laws that He established. He can choose to “pass over” the set, natural order of things.

Purim? Lent? Must we choose?

Costumes, dancing and feasting and giving food gifts. Purim is a joyous celebration of deliverance and survival. And it almost always falls during the solemn Lenten season.

Hezekiah’s Passover: Wrong but Still Right

The Biblical account of a particular Passover celebration when so much went wrong, but even more went right.

Celebrating Purim includes these 4 things.

Purim begins Wednesday, March 23, 2016 at sunset and continues until sunset Thursday, March 24. Purim is a freewill offering holiday, not commanded by the LORD under the Law of Moses, but rather instituted by the Jews to commemorate deliverance from a planned systematic genocide, as recorded in…

What is Jesus doing in my Jewish Bible?

Israel Cohen grew up in a Jewish family, believing that Jesus is for Gentiles. He was surprised to see Jesus in his Jewish Bible.

Tu B’ Shevat: Birthday of the Trees!

When God first breathed life into the first human being, the first responsibility he gave that man was to take care of the earth. God gave Adam plants and trees to tend, and animals as companions, before the creation of the first woman (Genesis 2:15-22). Before allowing the earth to be populated by humans, God made sure man understood it was his responsibility to nurture and protect the earth for the coming generations.

NOT Jewish Christmas: Why we celebrate Hanukkah

“But that’s your Christmas,” my neighbor insisted, after I explained to her that the menorah on the table was for Hanukkah.

“No,” I said,”It’s not. It’s Hanukkah.”

“Right. Your Christmas.” She smiled her tolerant smile.
