Messianic Jew Returns to Judaism with Rabbi Amnon Yitzhak

amnon yitzhak

I totally adore Rabbi Amnon Yitzhak because he’s such a showman, and it feels nice to have him on our side. I disagree with him on many things across the board, and I couldn’t live in his section of Torahville, but, naturally, I agree with him on the big stuff, and he’s so entertaining when he duels with his opponents, sparring, punching, a left jab to the belly, a right smack to the eye. It’s pure fun.

I wish there were more tapes of him with English subtitles.

  1. That was wonderful. I'd like to hear more from the Rabbi !

  2. A resurrected Jesus wouldn't want to argue with this guy. He's sharp and he's got some bite.

    I've been around (and have been hounded by) Christian apologeticists, and they always have trouble when trying to explain how the new testament was written and ordered through Divine guidance. Most of them see how futile it is to make it seem acceptable, so they tend to spend their time arguing that the world is only 6000 years old instead ; )

    This is the part where somebody responds and tells me I'm going to hell forever with the gnashing of teeth and the pitching of forks. That's pretty much how most of these discussions end.

  3. So this pastor preached a sermon on that "when you start to eat with the drunken then the Lord will come and your portion will be weeping and a gnashing of teeth" One lady spoke up saying "But I have no teeth pastor? The pastor not missing a beat answered her. "the teeth will be provided." :-)

  4. Jeff Rosner says:

    Torah is Truth. The Rabbi was illustrating the unbroken chain of teachings from the Revelation at Sinai to today, see Chapter 1 of Pirkei Avos. The young man obviously was searching and the Rabbi showed him the truth and the young man BH happily made Teshuvah.

  5. Sientje Seinen, he did mock the kid, and to be honest, it was not pleasant. I could feel the kid's embarrassment, but at the same time, I believe the Rabbi acted out of love for a brother. It's just that when people state things that are opposite of things we hold dear, our feelings sometimes get the best of us.

  6. Your explanations are as good as any I've seen, and I'm sorry if I offended you. Your heart is in the right place, and I thank you for trying to keep me out of the fire.

    You recommended me to read Amos a few weeks ago, and I did, btw, so thank you for the encouraging scriptures. I got lost in Numbers last time I got into the Old Testament. So much begetting…

  7. Roasted Locust I understand you have a beautiful heritage. Psalm 105-15 G-d let them forth with joy and singing, Their voices with His praises ringing,He gave to them the nations land, Filled with their fruit His people's hand, That they might serve Him all their days. O Israel, to the Lord give praise." Shalom and G-d bless Israel and its people.

Corey Gil-Shuster always has an interesting question to ask.
