Since before the Yom Kippur War, I have adventurously navigated the Hebrew Bible and Hebrew currents within the New Testament. My journeys have been far-ranging, ongoing and existential.
My journey toward "Hebrew Homeland" (my term) has been one of discovering and nourishing a Hebraic consciousness. It was deepened by trips to Israel, studies at seminaries and colleges, and by sitting under an elderly wise, non-Jewish tutor.
One fruit of my explorations is my graduate thesis on the Heavenly Council in the Hebrew Bible, Judaism, and New Testament. Another fruit was a study paper I published during 19861995 called Yashar [PDF], which matured into this website and went online in 1998.
From my studies in Scripture, one passage has stood out as one key for opening the door to Whole Bible Theology.
"Being full of the Holy Spirit, he gazed intently into heaven and saw the Glory of God and Yeshua standing at the right hand of God. And he said, 'Behold, I see the heavens opened up and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.' " (Acts 7:55-56)
Yeshua is not alone. Nor is God himself.
In light of this and other texts, a recurring theme of this website is to encourage readers to look more closely and deeply at the New Testament: to be keener students of Scripture.
