From Chapter 1:3 on the study of the Book of Hebrews (אֶל־הָעִבְרִים), brother Gideon Levytam sets before us the glory of the person of Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God, and His sacrificial atonement. In His person, He is the brightness of God’s glory and the express image of God's person. He is the Creator who holds the universe by the word of His power, and yet He willingly became a Man, the Emanuel / God with us. As a Man, Yeshua the Messiah purged our sins through His sacrificial death and resurrection, and He now is seated at God’s right hand in heaven.
From Chapter 12:9-13 of the prophecy of Daniel (דָנִיאֶל), brother Gideon Levytam directs us to the concluding prophetic promises which Daniel received from the angel concerning himself, Jerusalem, and his people of Israel. Daniel was told to go and rest in peace, as the words of this prophecy are sealed until the time of the end. Daniel was promised that those who will be wise, will be purified, yet the wicked will not understand, but all who trust God will be blessed. Along with Daniel, they will rise up in the future to receive their lot in Israel, who will be restored to God and receive all the promises which He promised to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and their descendants.

From Chapter 1:2 on the study of the Book of Hebrews (אֶל־הָעִבְרִים), brother Gideon Levytam shows us the amazing grace of God when He sent His Son, Yeshua / Jesus the Messiah into this world. God, who in the past spoke to the fathers through the prophets, fulfilled His promises by sending His Son into this world through the Hebrew virgin Miriam. God’s Son, the heir of all and creator of the world became a Man, Jesus the Messiah, in order to die and rise again as a sacrifice for the sins of the world.

From Chapter 7:1-3 on the study of the Book of Ecclesiastes, (Kohelet-קֹהֶלֶת), brother Gideon Levytam explains that in every situation under the sun, God’s people are to make things better. King Solomon advised his people Israel that to have a good name was more important than having costly perfume. WHY? Because living a godly life honours God and is a blessing to others. That one aught to remember that life is short and that death comes to all of us, for there is appointed a day when each one of us will leave this world. Therefore, even through days of sorrow and sadness, the godly will turn to God, trusting Him to provide them with joy and gladness, despite the circumstances.
From Chapter 12:4-8 of the prophecy of Daniel (דָנִיאֶל), brother Gideon Levytam relates to us the instruction that Daniel received, to shut up the words and to seal up the book. While Daniel’s prophecy was valuable to the Jewish people during Daniel’s days, its full fulfilment will take place at the time of the end. When Daniel in his vision, was by the great river of Hiddekel, he saw two additional angels, asking each other how long it would be till the end of these wonders. The angel's response was, for a time, times, and an half a times, (3 1/2 years). This relates to the second half of the seven-year tribulation period, when the suffering, scattered nation of Israel will come to faith in Yeshua, their promised Messiah.

From the study on the Book of Hebrews, (אֶל־הָעִבְרִים). Brother Gideon Levytam continues with the second part of the introduction of the letter to the Hebrew believers in Yeshua, Jesus the Messiah. The Hebrew author presents the person of God the Son Yeshua/Jesus, who became a man and entered into this world just as the prophets of Israel had predicted. He came in order to become a substitutionary sacrifice, taking away the sin of the world, thus providing redemption to all who believe. Yeshua the Messiah is greater than the prophets, the angels, Moses, Aaron, the priesthood, the covenants, the sacrifices and more, for He is greater than all.
Gideon Levytam presents the seventh and the final I AM statement found in John 15:1,5 - "I Am the Vine” (אָנֹכִי הַגֶּפֶן). In the upper room in Jerusalem, just before departing for the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus the Messiah encouraged His disciples to abide close to Him. Although, He was soon to die as a sacrifice on a Roman cross, Yeshua graciously explained to His troubled followers that He was the True Vine to whom they were linked. If they were to bring fruit for God in their lives, they must abide close to him.
Gideon Levytam shows that in the letter to Ephesus, Jesus the Messiah commended their desirable condition, yet challenged them to return to their first love, which they had left. The local church in Ephesus represents the early apostolic church age, 30-100 A.D.
Gideon Levytam presents the second of the seven I AM statements found in John 8:12 - "I Am The Light of the World” (אָנֹכִי הוּא אוֹר הָעוֹלָם). In proclaiming to be the Light of the World, Jesus the Messiah declared that He is The Holy One of Israel, the Saviour of mankind. Isaiah 43:3. That He is the promised Emmanuel, God with us, who was born into this dark and sinful world, bringing the light of His salvation to lost sinners who are in darkness. Yeshua promised that anyone who believes and follows Him will not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
From Psalm 8:1-9, brother Gideon Levytam presents the words of David who proclaimed, how excellent the LORD’s name is in all the earth and His glory is above the heavens. In Psalm 8 David is looking forward to the future day when Yeshua, Jesus the Messiah, who is the Son of Man will return to take His rightful place in the coming kingdom. At His first coming, the Son of Man became a little lower than the angels in order to die for the sin of the world. Yet, until the coming kingdom, God crowned the Messiah with glory and honour because of His finished work. At His return, Messiah, the Son of Man, will receive the promised dominion over the works of God, all things will be placed under his feet, just as God had promised.
From Ephesians 3:14-21, Gideon Levytam expounds Paul’s sincere prayer for the believers in Ephesus. Paul, who was called to be an apostle to the Gentiles, was concerned for the believers in Jesus the Messiah. He wished that they would be strengthened by the Holy Spirit, and know of the love of Christ which exceeds all human knowledge. Being rooted and grounded in the love of Jesus the Messiah, will result in a heartfelt response of praise and worship to God.
