Treasures Old and New
“Treasures Old and New” best describes these one-minute lessons.
It’s been said, “The Old Testament is the New Testament concealed and the New Testament is the Old Testament revealed.” We believe this, and see the Scriptures as one long love story, in which God reveals His desire to be in a relationship with humanity. There is a centuries-old story about a Gentile who said he would follow the God of Abraham if a Rabbi could explain the whole Torah while standing on one foot. The Jewish sage Hillel is credited with saying to him, “What is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbor. That is the whole Torah; the rest is the explanation of this—go and study it!”
In Matthew 13:52, Yeshua said, “Every Torah scholar schooled by heaven brings forth treasures old and new”. We hope these posts will inspire you and encourage you to study the Word for yourselves.
New lessons will be posted weekly (except during special holidays)… So return here for more.

Messiah came first as a suffering servant, He’s coming back as the Lion of Judah to rule!
Moses scribed the Words of God – making him our greatest teacher. Jesus IS the Word of God – making Him greater than Moses…
Abraham Lincoln noted that he didn’t worry whether God was on his side. He was concerned with being on God’s side, “because God is always right” – We can be healers and reconcilers.
In his latter days, Albert Einstein said he was, “inexorably drawn to the luminous figure of the Nazarene”
The glory of God is real and compelling.
