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 [...]

A Systematic synopsis of Molana Ahmed Pandor’s “The concept of God’s mercy in Islam and Christianity” by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff

Mr Pandor’s book can be downloaded for free from the I.P.C.I. website. Mr Molana Pandor asked early in the book that we“Please read the entire book, not just mere browsing or else the essence of the books systematic sequence will be lost”[1]. Respectfully, I have endeavoured to do that and my response to Mr Pandor will be systematic and sequential from the first page to the last page of his book. If there are overlapping points I will refer [...]

Variant reading of the Pre-Existent Lord [Κυριος] Jesus [Ιησους] as found in the Letter of Jude 4-6 (66 to 90 A.D) by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff.

In  "Jude's letter" or the "Epistle of Jude" authored by Jude the Brother of James the Just we find one of the most interesting variant readings in the New Testament text. This type of variant reading is what could be understood as a "elucidating alteration" for clarification of the overall reading of Jude's central message.The variant reading and the manuscripts that support them tell us to chose between the reading Ιησους (Jesus) and Κυριος (Lord). Either way the overall context denotes [...]

Early Church Fathers regarding the “US”, in Gen 1:26 “Let us make man in our image”

Here are some Church Fathers and their explanation of Genesis 1:26: 74 AD Epistle of Barnabas: "For the Scripture says concerning us, while He speaks to the Son, "Let Us make man after Our image, and after Our likeness" (Epistle of Barnabas, Chapter VI.—The Sufferings of Christ, and the New Covenant, Were Announced by the Prophets.) 150 AD Justin Martyr: Speaking of Jewish theologians Justin calls the Jewish teaching that God spoke to angels a hersey: [...]

Early Church Fathers regarding two Yahweh’s in Gen 19:24, “Then Yahweh rained on Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and fire from Yahweh out of heaven.”

Although the unanimous opinion of the apostolic Fathers was that this was Jesus talking to Abraham, such is a guess and not specifically known by scripture. Having said this, the story of Abraham meeting God and the two angels in Genesis 18, is most likely what Jesus meant when He said, "Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad." " John 8:56 What the apostolic Fathers said about Genesis 19:24: 150 AD Justin [...]
