In this episode of Hebrew Voices, Michael Oren on Trump's Recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's Capital, Nehemia Gordon shares an exclusive interview with Michael Oren, a Deputy Minister in the government of Israel and the greatest living historian to have written on Israel. Oren explains the true significance of President Trump's declaration last week recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital, how this has put an end to decades of antisemitic humiliation, and how it opens the possibility for true peace with the Arabs. Nehemia also shares his prayer for Jerusalem. Continue reading
This week Nehemia Gordon and Keith Johnson discuss the Prophets portion for Mikeitz, covering 1 Kings 3:15-4:1. Gordon and Johnson provide context, past and present, for the quintessential wisdom-of-Solomon story where a birth mother is determined faster than you can say DNA. “Deeply stirred” like the mother in the story, Johnson compares the fight-at-any-cost spirit to the battles for the Land today—where a two-baby solution is still no solution. To have a clearer understanding of the gift of divine wisdom, Gordon compares the Chronicles version of Solomon’s dream with this Portion’s account. We learn the divisions of knowledge in the Tanakh and in what section the writings of Solomon appear. We learn the main function of the ancient kings of Israel and that you don’t have to be perfect for Yehovah to call you friend. Gordon closes with a prayer that God’s chosen son, the Messiah King of Israel, soon will bring an end to fighting—peace to Israel and the world. Continue reading
In this episode of The Original Torah Pearls, Mikeitz (Genesis 41:1-44:17), we learn about the earliest manipulation of Hebrew translation in history and Joseph's plot to fulfill his own dream.

In this Support Team Study, War Without End, Nehemia Gordon visits the newly discovered "Acra", in the City of David. Acra was an ancient Greek fortress that menaced the very heart of ancient Jerusalem. The parallels to the Maccabean wars 2,200 years ago, and the headlines today, are uncanny and a living reminder of how the history of Israel repeats itself time and again. Eusebio wrote: “I think this is one of your best podcasts my friend. Your prayer at the end, brought tears to my eyes.” Continue reading
This week Nehemia Gordon and Keith Johnson discuss the Prophets portion for Vayeishev, covering Amos 2:6-3:8. With seven rhetorical questions and a very straight stick, the shepherd prophet draws an unwavering line between cause and effect. Amos’s rebuke of those who “sell the righteous for silver” provides the connection to the Torah portion. But could the sins of Joseph’s older brothers have reaped a 20th century whirlwind? Gordon explains this controversial theory related to ancestral sin. Gordon and Johnson also take a look at Amos’s question of two people walking together. An accurate translation of “agreed” confirms the value of common ground while a faulty translation leads to rampant denominationalism. With cause and effect so tightly woven, we’re reminded that it is a sobering calling to minister the counsel of Adonai Yehovah to the world. Continue reading
In this episode of The Original Torah Pearls, Vayeishev (Genesis 37:1-40:23), The trio examine Joseph's dreams, Judah's indiscretions, and a selective translation agenda that would send the patriarch Jacob down into the pit of Hell.

Find out the true history of Hanukkah before it was hijacked by ancient rabbis wanting to subjugate the Jewish people under their authority. The original Hanukkah was a celebration of a miraculous military victory and the audacity of faithful Jews to stand against man-made rules and regulations. It's no surprise that the rabbis saw a need to obfuscate the original message of this national Jewish Day of Joy and re-cast it as a reminder of their self-appointed power. It's time to reclaim Hanukkah for Yehovah and stand against the ban of the rabbis and the ancient Greeks alike! Continue reading
This week Nehemia Gordon and Keith Johnson discuss the Prophets portion for Vayishlach, covering Obadiah 1:1-21. To the single-chapter vision of Obadiah, Gordon and Johnson bring volumes of insight. We learn how the eschatological views of preterism, historicism and futurism apply to this Portion. We also learn that Obadiah’s identity has been determined by a rabbinical method of interpretation known as “make-it-up.” Word studies include: “hamas,” “Sepharad,” “yom Yehovah,” “Edom,” “measure for measure,” and “drinking from the cup.” While we are warned by the sins of Edom, we are encouraged by Gordon’s eye-witness account of prophecy fulfilled in the Negev. And we look forward to the day when saviors ascend Mount Zion and the kingdom is Yehovah’s. Continue reading
