You will learn how our Heavenly Father entered into a kinship relationship with Abraham; giving him all the benefits of being in the family of YHVH. Patterns of this relationship are seen when Joseph tested the loyalty and kinship of his brothers to Benjamin before he revealed himself and extended blessing to them. We see another example of kinship in the book of Ruth when Boaz was the kinsman redeemer for his brother by marrying Ruth and continuing the lineage of his kin. Yeshua our Messiah is also the kinsman redeemer for Adam, restoring honor to Israel and all of humanity. Though we have sinned and gone astray, may we return to the Master's house and receive restoration and redemption given to us by the King of the Universe.

I am a teacher of Scriptures, Torah follower, and believer in Messiah Yeshua. I have been given the opportunity to share the Word of God with many believers around the world. My work as a servant of the Most High God has allowed me to be a voice to spread the good news of the New Testament, unveiling its truth through context and the obedience to the Almighty through his Torah.

    Itzack shapira had an interesting take on the prodigal as messiah from their writings. Its in YouTube for about 12 minutes. Accentuates for sure

  2. Fantastc! The Torah clearly shows tribal dentiy passes from the father, the wife and children. However, sometime and for some reason, the Rabbis, change it from the father’s tribe to the mother’s. How has this effected the Tribe? Will Yeshua change it back?

  3. I wondered what I would pick up by listening to the parable of The Prodigal Son “again”! You managed to show connections and depths I had not appreciated before!

    It’s sad that an adopted or returning wayward child would enter their Father’s Home and think to start rearranging the furniture, making up a new schedule for everyone, throwing out treasured heirlooms, snubbing relatives and preaching to their elders. The lack of humility and gratitude is appalling.

    Keep teaching like this and will get it.

  4. Is it possible that because Yeshua is the kinsman redeemer of Israel, and Israel is called the firstborn, that Israel gets the double blessing and not Yeshua? Just a thought. Excellent teaching! Thank you!

  5. Wow!! I have learned to much. Never knew the life style of the Ancient Jewish People or the genealogies. Thank you so much for your hard work,
    God Bless you!

  6. Wow Rico, that was an amazing teaching, never tough of this parable from that point of vew, thank you very much for always shearing your wisdom with us so we can shear it with others. Shabat shalom, and may the King continue blessing you and your family.

  7. Amen brother on the genealogies – both the Matthew and Luke genealogies are characteristically Jewish, totally in keeping with established ancient and Jewish literary practices, not only according to the standards of the Tanakh, but also those listed in the Talmud and elsewhere. They were more interested in conveying truth than scientific precision and accuracy.
