Hebrew Voices – Passover Special (Rebroadcast)

They start off by sharing the time they personally experienced "darkness so dark, it could be felt". Nehemia points out a few examples in the exodus story where we are given background information by way of a flashback and he explain how the Passover sacrifice was brought, who could eat of it and how it should be commemorated today. Keith gets all excited when they come to the part where Yehovah introduces His calendar and Nehemia suggests we be tolerant of our neighbor who may be celebrating the holidays on a different date than ourselves. Nehemia also gives a very quick overview of the three different types of leaven and the extent of the prohibition of leaven on Chag HaMatzot (Passover).

I look forward to reading your comments!

    Exodus 12:22 says you shall not go out of the doorposts until morning.
    So how did they leave in the night?

  • zahar says:

    l need the proper dates 2019 for passover festivals.

  • virajabey says:

    Nehemia, do you mean that gentiles who wish to observe the Torah need to be circumcised? I listened to your talk with Michel on Shabbat night live on Acts 15. Please help me to understand this. Shalom

  • Linda says:

    Nehemiah, did the Karaite tradition of following the crescent moon begin in Babylon? And chodesh is used for month with the real word for month is yareach, yes? And the dead sea scrolls delineate the Zadok calendar. You helped on the DSS; yet, you are not persuaded for this calendar. Why? We’re the Zadok priests not of the true Aaronic lineage? Thanks for answering, since it’s ok for me to be wrong. 🙂

  • Hosea 2:11
    When outside of the land, no feasts, no new moons (no lunar calendar) as commanded by YHVH.

    • Angela McKay says:

      Explain, please… I turned to Hosea 2:11 and I do not see your explanation inherent in that cited scripture…

  • Marisha H. Fraaza says:

    My cat was prescribed special cat food by the veterinarian because of continuous urine infections, this food contains wheat and of course, we are in the Feast of Unleavened Bread, otherwise, I removed all possible leaven, if you could comment, thanks, God bless you, Marisha

  • Susan Regan says:

    So are we suppose to keep Passover, and how, if there is not Temple?

    • Rocky Jackson says:

      Sister Susan just go to Exodus 12:14
      Start there learn the Hebrew for Remember
      And the Hebrew for perpetual regulation or ordinance just depends on the version
      When you realize that you can only commemorate this now …enjoy

  • Charles says:

    I don’t think it can be said too many times: The chosen people of God are not a closed group. As long as certain and specific laws are followed by the one who seeks to join, the invitation is open to choose the chosen. Have a happy Passover!

    • phil says:

      Yes, one law for the stranger and citizen. But the ger is someone who chooses to keep the covenant. He is not just a fellow traveler

  • Your words Nehemiah:
    “If God gives you all the rules and regulations, stick to them. Don’t add to them or take away from them.”

    “You have to be very careful with the words that you choose and the actions that you carry out because YHVH will be sanctified by those who are close to Him.”

    “Be careful.”

  • Erin Hunter says:

    So much to understand and YHVH is aiding all who seek His Torah in willingness to learn of truth!
    Thanks Nehemiah, Keith and Jonah for expounding and clarifying so many hidden things…

  • dale hurley says:

    If Torah doesn’t waste words, how come in Exodus 12, when it states this month shall be the first of months and then states this month shall be the first month of the year they are not separate commands which would make not only that month the first month but that year the first year? As far as I’ve found, that is the way time is reckoned till the end of Torah.

  • Thomas Garza says:

    I would that all so called Messianic Believers everywhere will STOP using the Passover and the Seder as an evangelism tool. I have read this year of too many folks doing some sort of a ” more Christian friendly” version or “take-off” of the Seder to appeal to non-Torah folks. We will never reach the goal if we continue to change the PATHS. Respectfully submitted.

  • Lorraine says:

    I have listened to the three of you for years and find new nuggets of information to chew on. I want to thank you for showing that even we can be part of the “family” if we believe on the name of Yahovah and His Torah.

  • Janice says:

    Have to leave your past identity as did Abraham, so cannot hang on to Methodist iD and also be Israelite, Just as the aliens who left, were not also Eqyptian, and Hyskos; they left behind, washed in the Sea of Reeds. Either be Roman Greco Christian or an Israelite.

  • Joy Mathew says:

    This teachng was very encouraging – one cannot keep the Feast Days but we are supposed to guard the Feast Days . I think the best example of this is Daniel 10 : 1 – 4 . Daniel did not eat pleasant food or wine or annoint himself with oil from Aviv 2nd to Aviv 24th I.e. during the period of the Feast of Passover .


  • Michael says:

    Thank you for this timely instruction! There is a bible church I know of that attempts to keep the Passover in the US. Would they be able to be considered part of the “congregation of Israel” according to scripture?
