Mysticism and the Gospels[04]


Do the words "Chasidism" or "mysticism" raise red flags of warning for you? Love and the Messianic Age contains many allusions to and quotations from mystical Jewish literature, so you may feel somewhat leery or even fearful to delve into a book that discusses such broad, abstract theological concepts. This video in the Levertoff series, seeks to help us better understand Levertoff's point of view and how the exercises of comparison and contrast found in his book, Love and the Messianic Age, can help us unravel difficult passages in the Gospels, with particular emphasis on the hyper-mystical Gospel of John.

A pioneer of Messianic Judaism a century ahead of his time, Lucky used the journal to actively promote a faith in the Messiah firmly rooted in traditional Jewish practice and interpretation.

    Happy New Year, Again!

    Judaism has four New Years, and one of them, Tu Bishvat, is for trees. Why? Since we don’t see that specifically laid out in the Bible, it must be those dastardly old rabbis at it again, right? Or maybe there’s something important we could learn about the role of rabbinic authority in ancient Israel.
