The Private Interpretation of Prophecy

Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Monday, March 30, 2015 at 6:00 AM
  Kepha Sheniy (2 Peter) 1:20 It is written that knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. This phrase is certainly worthy of discussion. Pursuant to this phrase, no prophecy of the scrip... Continue Reading

Who is Midyan?

Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Sunday, March 22, 2015 at 6:00 AM
  It is worth our time here to consider the slaughter of Midyan, is it not?  Who is Midyan, and when did this slaughter occur? Bere’shiyth (Genesis) 25:1-2 And again Avraham took a woman, and her name was Qeturah. 2 And sh... Continue Reading

On the Feast of Pecach (Passover)

Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Thursday, March 19, 2015 at 6:00 AM

The Souls of the Giants - Part 5

Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Wednesday, March 11, 2015 at 6:00 AM
  Again, we are talking about the last eight passages of scripture where the traditional translations have used the word dead in place of the Hebrew word Repha’iym.  A few passages have been discussed already, and a few remain: ... Continue Reading

The Giants - Part 4

Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Tuesday, March 10, 2015 at 6:00 AM

The Giants - Part 3

Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Monday, March 9, 2015 at 6:00 AM

The Giants - Part 2

Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Friday, March 6, 2015 at 6:00 AM

On the practice of Puriym

Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Wednesday, March 4, 2015 at 6:00 AM
  First, let us ask ourselves who are these people who should be practicing this feast of Puriym?  Additions to Ecster (Esther) 5:8 There is a certain people scattered abroad and dispersed among the people in all the provinces o... Continue Reading

The wisdom of Artachshasta in Additions

Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Tuesday, March 3, 2015 at 6:00 AM
  One of the beauties of having transliterated the text to restore the actual names is that sometimes we come up with a nearly unpronounceable transliteration.  This is the case with Artachshasta, formerly known as Artaxerxes (which had e... Continue Reading

On Puriym

Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Monday, March 2, 2015 at 11:00 AM

Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Thursday, February 26, 2015 at 6:00 AM
  Let us discuss for a moment the propitiation of the work on the cross – the stauros pendiculum – and its meaning for those of us who gather under it. Vayiqra (Leviticus) 17:11 For the life (nefesh) of the flesh (basar) ... Continue Reading

On the mark of salvation

Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Wednesday, February 25, 2015 at 6:00 AM

Retaining the word “cross”

Posted by Stephen Pidgeon on Tuesday, February 24, 2015 at 6:00 AM
  We have two words to deal with here, in regard to the controversial term, cross.  In the Greek these words are stauros and stauro’o. Let’s start with the word stauro’o, which in most applications is a verb, and i... Continue Reading
