At the European continent there are several descendants from saved Jews who either were brought up in another country and in an other religion by their war- or foster families, or could keep their faith but lost the knowledge of Hebrew. We also may find Jews who have found that Jeshua is the long awaited Messiah and are looking for a gathering of like-minded believers. Being myself also a reflection of time and surroundings I introduce here my aims and hopes and give an idea which bible translations I shall be using and which track I would like to be following.
Rabbi Jeshua in many of his talks gave several examples of how we had to work at ourselves and how we should prepare ourselves to be ready and to be worthy to go through the small gate of the Kingdom of God. The characteristics we should work at to come closer in the image of God, may be presented by the lights of the menorah or seven armed candelabrum, which we can use as a handy tool for thinking about the seven basic emotions.
Historically, any Jewish group which denied the basic principles of Jewish tradition – Torah and mitzvah-observance – ultimately ceased to be part of the Jewish people. Rabbi Jeshua never denied the basic principles of Jewish tradition, though several who call themselves Christian are not following Christ his teachings and ignore even the basic Jewish core teachings and do not want to work at the basic characteristics a child of God should have. To remind us of those elements we should work at, the Elohim has given us a useful tool to remember all those basic characteristics.
In ancient times on market days and the days people where free, they came together to listen to the reading of the Torah. Today any day could be used to come together to listen to the reading of the Holy Scriptures. Written and oral material was brought from one generation into an other and formed the base for the construction of many communities or religious groups and denominations.
