Walk Like a Hebrew

Jodi

Welcome to Walk Like a Hebrew, the podcast in which we talk with Torah-pursuant Christians from all over about how on earth they got from THERE - wherever that was - to HERE - walking out a life that combines faith in Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah with an emphasis on being set-apart by keeping the Torah of YHVH (God). Torah, commonly translated as "Law," literally means "instructions" in Hebrew. We live by 1 John 2:6, "Whoever claims to abide in Him must walk as Jesus walked." We eat Biblically clean as He did, we observe the Seventh-Day Sabbath and celebrate the Biblical feasts just as He did. How do YOU walk out your faith? Do you walk like an Egyptian? A Babylonian? Like the world? Or like the One who died for you? Let's talk about it! read less

The Sabbath Day -- Why? How? Should We? WLAH Ep. 40
This is episode 40, the kickoff to Season 4, and I’m doing something a little different this season. There are some great topics and interviews on deck, I can’t wait! I WILL still be sitting down with people and collecting their stories of how they got from there - wherever that was - to here: Walking out faith like a true crossed-over Hebrew, following in the actual footsteps of our Messiah. But it’s high time I started carrying out one of the original purposes of this podcast, something I’ve meant to be doing from the start. I want to talk about HOW to Walk like a Hebrew. HOW do we go about living this set-apart life? What’s different about this walk from the places we used to worship? Where do we even start?So I went to a ladies’ retreat this past winter on the Mendocino coast of Northern California, and I sat down with a group of amazing, faith and Spirit-filled women and we had a discussion about the Sabbath. We talked about why we keep it, when it is, HOW we keep it in our different households, and much more. Please let me know if you find this episode valuable! I would love your feedback: are you interested in this new format? In this discussion we will hear from Michelle Hawkins, Anna Kaufmann, Tamara Anderson, Lori Jeleti, Karen Bixby, Pam Custer, and of course, me!Want to support the show but only have a little to spend??I take tips!

Mindy Seta of Messianic Dance Camps International - WLAH Ep. 39
There are a couple of really big things in this interview that I’m happy to be able to talk about. First, Mindy is Jewish and grew up in a Jewish household, and she tells the story of how she actually came to faith in Jesus as a young wife. Understanding how Jewish people are taught from birth to reject Yeshua as Messiah makes it that much more exciting when a Jewish person realizes they’ve been taught in error. It’s like those of us who grew up in mainstream Christian homes are taught that God’s Law is no longer applicable to our lives. It looks like we are seeing in our times a great meeting between the two religions, a shaking off of the untruths and a putting on of the truths of Yahweh. The second big thing in this interview with Mindy is talking about dancing. It’s a form of worship that can be… off-putting to those of us who grew up in some of the stricter denominations of Christianity (you know, don’t dance, don’t drink, don’t chew…and don’t associate with those who do…that was the stance of the denomination I grew up in). IS worship dancing ok? Why would we do it? What’s the difference between singing and whole-body dance when it comes to praising Yahweh, our wonderful Creator? Mindy talks about learning to worship God, how the Covid crisis affected the ministry, and much much more.
