Christ’s self Identity in light of intermediary beings by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff.

There just never seems to be a lack of keen interest in the study of the Person and place of Jesus Christ. Personally, I am challenged often by Unitarians to frequent a better understanding of “agency” if I am going to study Christ truthfully in the Jewish scheme of things, which conclusively shows him to be just an “intermediary being, agent, or deputy”. I have had a Unitarian say, “Read the Apostle Paul! He wrote; [...]

The plural of majesty: The “We” & “Us” use in the Hebrew Old Testament by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff

Currently, I am trying to find out when the plural of majesty became a known Hebrew concept or if it even WAS a known Hebrew literary device. As far as I can see the words "We" and "Us" are commonly used within the Old Testament yet, I find evidence of the Plural of Majesty only being used after the Old Testament was written at about 200 AD and is never used in scripture. I found [...]

What would Judaism look like if its expectations were fulfilled? by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff

In asking this question there are so many assumptions that one has to deal with and perspectives to contend with. I am thoroughly convinced that answers to this central question could be numerous due to different perspectives even amongst the Jewish people. This could be as a result of that which Judaism had to offer in its own consummate understanding, as well as the identity of the Jewish people as a result. In this article [...]

The Shema‘ Yisrael reviewed by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff

In the modern debate between Christians and Muslims there seems to be keen interest to find out the true meaning of the "Shema" found in the Hebraic-Christian Scriptures in Deuteronomy 6:4. In fact, the Shema is the prescribed prayer of every Jew recited every morning and evening. The assumed pericope of this prayer always seems to move to the “unitariness” or “oneness” of Yahweh in its assumed context but a closer study shows that the [...]

Psalm 110:1 and our Glorious Yeshua: The Flaws of Misguided Unitarian Enthusiasm By Maverick Victor Witlouw

A brother of the faith brought something to my attention recently, a Unitarian paper arguing for a Unitarian understanding of Psalm 110:1, in which the supposed author also criticized some Trinitarian interpretations of this text, the paper went by the title of Psalm 110:1 and the Status of the Second Lord – Trinitarian Arguments Challenged by Jaco Van Zyl. Unfortunately, like most Unitarian apologists – Van Zyl has definitely not delved deep enough into the [...]

An evaluation of the Absolute Unity of Allah in Islamic Monotheism by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff

Missionary Samuel M. Zwemer asks a very central question when he wrote: “What is the result of our investigation of the Moslem idea of God; is the statement of the Koran true, "Your God and our God is the same " There be any doubt that Mohammed's conception of God is inadequate, incomplete, barren and grievously distorted. It is vastly inferior to the Christian idea of the Godhead and also inferior to the Old Testament [...]
