The Seven I AMs of Jesus the Messiah - The Resurrection and the Life (הַתְּקוּמָה וְהַחַיִּים)

Gideon Levytam presents the fifth of the Seven I AM statements found in John 11:25 - "I Am The Resurrection and the Life" (אָנֹכִי הַתְּקוּמָה וְהַחַיִּים). By proclaiming to be the Resurrection and the Life, Jesus the Messiah gave hope to the grieving family of Eliezer/Lazarus who had just died, promising that he would rise again. While God's Word assures us that every person who has lived and died will one day rise again for the day of judgment, Yeshua, the Son of God, claimed that those who believed in Him would be resurrected to possess eternal life.

Ephesians 2:1-3 - Once Dead in Sins, Now Alive Through Jesus the Messiah

From Ephesians 2:1-3, Gideon Levytam emphasizes the amazing transformation to those who come to trust in the person and work of the Lord Yeshua / Jesus the Messiah. They are transformed from being spiritually dead in trespasses and sins, living for the world and the flesh, to being spiritually alive, living for the glory of God.

The Parable of the Shrewd Steward (מָשָל הָפָקִיד הָמֶמוּלָח)

Gideon Levytam explains that in the Parable of the Shrewd Steward, Yeshua / Jesus the Messiah was NOT commending the steward’s unfaithfulness or his unrighteous deeds. But rather, He was commending the unjust steward’s wise planning for his future. Jesus exhorted His disciples to be righteous and faithful, to use their God-given wealth generously, investing in God’s work, which has eternal value. Investing one's wealth in the work of the Lord, exposes needy sinners to the Redeemer, and may lead them to receive forgiveness of sins and their everlasting dwellings in the presence of God.

The Seven I AMs of Jesus the Messiah - The Good Shepherd (אָנֹכִי הָרֹעֶה הַטּוֹב)

Gideon Levytam presents the fourth of the Seven I AM statements found in John 10:7 - "I Am The Good Shepherd (אָנֹכִי הָרֹעֶה הַטּוֹב). Jesus the Messiah presents Himself as the promised Shepherd of Israel, of whom David wrote, The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. Psalm 23:1. He fulfilled the prophecy, smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered, Zechariah 13:7. As The Good Shepherd, Yeshua willingly laid down His life for His sheep, when He died on the Roman cross for the sins of this world.

Ephesians 1:22-23 - Jesus the Messiah Head Over the Assembly (אֶל־הָאֶפְסִיִּים)

From Ephesians 1:22-23, Gideon Levytam points to the results of Jesus the Messiah’s substitutional sacrifice, which appeased and satisfied God, who is Holy. Whereby He exalted Jesus the Messiah, putting all things under His feet and making Him head over the assembly of believers, who became the body of Messiah here on earth.

The Parable of the Lost Son (Part Three) (מָשָל הָבֶן הָאוֹבֶד)

In Luke 15, we see that many in Israel came to listen to Jesus the Messiah as He graciously taught God's Word. When the religious leaders observed this, they murmured, saying, "This man receives sinners and eats with them". Yeshua responded to their murmurings with a three-fold parable. In the last of the three, called the Parable of the Lost Son (Luke 15:11-32), Jesus the Messiah demonstrates God's love for lost sinners, who, just as a father longs for the return of his lost son, so also, God the Father is longing for lost humanity to turn to Him in faith and accept His Son, Yeshua the Messiah.

The Parable of the Lost Son (Part Two) (מָשָל הָבֶן הָאוֹבֶד)

In Luke 15, we see that many in Israel came to listen to Jesus the Messiah as He graciously taught God's Word. When the religious leaders observed this, they murmured, saying, "This man receives sinners and eats with them". Yeshua responded to their murmurings with a three-fold parable. In the last of the three, called the Parable of the Lost Son (Luke 15:11-32), Jesus the Messiah demonstrates God's love for lost sinners, who, just as a father longs for the return of his lost son, so also, God the Father is longing for lost humanity to turn to Him in faith and accept His Son, Yeshua the Messiah.

The Parable of the Lost Son (Part One) (מָשָל הָבֶן הָאוֹבֶד)

In Luke 15, we see that many in Israel came to listen to Jesus the Messiah as He graciously taught God's Word. When the religious leaders observed this, they murmured, saying, "This man receives sinners and eats with them". Yeshua responded to their murmurings with a three-fold parable. In the last of the three, called the Parable of the Lost Son (Luke 15:11-32), Jesus the Messiah demonstrates God's love for lost sinners, who, just as a father longs for the return of his lost son, so also, God the Father is longing for lost humanity to turn to Him in faith and accept His Son, Yeshua the Messiah.

The Seven I AMs of Jesus the Messiah - The Door (אָנֹכִי הַשַּׁעַר)

Gideon Levytam presents the third of the Seven I AM statements found in John 10:7 - "I Am The Door of the Sheep" (אָנֹכִי שַׁעַר הַצֹּאן). In proclaiming to be the Door of the Sheep, Jesus the Messiah declares two important truths concerning Himself.  Firstly, that He is the promised Messiah of Israel, who entered into this world through the door of God's promises, as foretold by the Hebrew prophets. Secondly, that by offering Himself as a sacrifice for the sins of the world, He became the Door of Salvation to anyone who believes on Him.

Ephesians 1:19-21 - Jesus the Messiah Exalted Far Above All (אֶל־הָאֶפְסִיִּים)

From Ephesians 1:19-21, Gideon Levytam continues with Paul’s prayer for the Ephesian believers, that they would know assuredly God’s great power in raising Jesus the Messiah from the dead. Setting Him far above any man, angel, dominion or power, at His own right hand in heaven, not only in this world, but also in the world to come.
