Disputation 1:

Halachah -- Judah's perspective


Disputation 2:

Historical/biblical context


Disputation 3:

Y'shua and Halachah


Note:  Disputations 4-7 are a refutation of Messiah III:

Understanding His Identity and Teachings through the

Soul of the Torah, by Avi ben Mordecai (Brad Marcus),

a messianic Jew living in Israel whose book advocates

a mystical sh'tuf identifying Y'shua as deity. We offered this critique after first cautioning Avi about the confusion his book would cause and how.

Disputation 4:

'Soul of the Torah' ... or souls of the Torah -- one tzadik or many?


Disputation 5:

The 'lesser deity' of Y’shua -- Part I--  'P’shat is king'


Disputation 6:
The 'lesser deity' of Y'shua -- Part II -- One God and the plural idiom
Disputation 7:
The 'lesser deity' of Y'shua -- Part III --  In defense of the Masorites

Disputation 8:

Proposing the tzadik as an Halachic 'son of God'


Disputation 9:

The task of the tzadik in establishing and renewing covenant


Disputation 10:

The tzadik Y'shua: A human bridge to recovenant between the God of Israel and the assimilation of the Northern Tribes (The House of Israel)

Mapping the problem

The outline of Judea-Samaria (above) shows that the northern two-thirds of the proposed Palestinian state (according to the pre-1967 borders), forms a partzuf of a head and crown. The two maps below show this region as (A) the biblical inheritance of  Ephraim, M'nashe and part of Benjamin or the non-Jewish House of Joseph, who is promised its return to the biblical Birthright. (Jeremiah 31:15-18, Hosea 2:1-2, Isaiah 49, and others)

Biblical Ephraim and Manassah

3D Map of Israel


and (B) A 3-D map of Israel (above) that shows Judea-Samaria is the high ground, containing all of the mountains of Israel, except the small Carmel range near Haifa. High ground given to a hostile neighboring state, spells S-U-I-C-I-D-E.


The non-Jewish House of Israel will reunite with the Jewish House of Judah 'ON THE MOUNTAINS OF ISRAEL'  (Ezekiel 37:22)


And how to solve it:


A sacred use for Judea-Samaria (to reunite Joes and Jews) mandates a different region for a Palestinian state. Thus "The Zechariah Plan" introduced below.


Biblical alternative Palestinian state
