The Philistines are described as the most threatening of all Ancient Israel’s enemies. Mentioned over 200 times in the Old Testament, their presence threatens the peace of the land of milk and honey.

Aliyah covers this and more in this exciting teaching on people in the Bible: The Philistines.
Last time, we took a closer loser at the Ammonite people of the Bible. In this teaching, Aliyah is digging into the people of the Bible, looking closer at the Amorites.

And what does history teach us about Yahweh's divine words in the book of Isaiah? This teaching delves deep in to the Persian Empire, Cyrus and Isaiah's prophecies.

Congregations and leaders within faith communities have used two simple verses in 1 Corinthians 14, to preach a doctrine that women are to be “seen and not heard,” within congregations, bible studies, seminary halls and within areas of teaching influence.

In this teaching Yosef expounds on Deut 30-19-20 and explains the importance of loving YHWH and loving others. The love of many is growing cold. Now is the time for the body to be the reflection of the ultimate source of love.
