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.

The Parable of the Lost Coin (מָשָל הָמָטְבֶע שֶאָבָד)

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 second of the three, called the Parable of the Lost Coin (Luke 15:8-10), Jesus the Messiah demonstrates God's love for lost sinners.  Just as a woman searches diligently for her lost wedding dowry coin, likewise, God the Holy Spirit diligently seeks after lost sinners. When they are found and return to God, there is great joy in the presence of God.

The Seven I AMs of Jesus the Messiah - The Light of the World (אוֹר הָעוֹלָם)

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.

Ephesians 1:15-18 - God’s Inheritance in the Saints (אֶל־הָאֶפְסִיִּים)

From Ephesians 1:15-18a, Gideon Levytam emphasizes the earnest prayer of God’s servant Paul for the people that God had redeemed. Paul prayed for God’s people to be enlightened and to know the riches of the person of Jesus the Messiah, understanding that they belong to Him and are His inheritance.
