We believe that in that same year [the birth of Yokhanan HaMatbil], during the season of Sukkot, Messiah Yeshua was born in Bethlehem. He was the “Word of יהוה,” which had appeared to the prophets as the “Angel of יהוה” on many occasions, who this time became an infant human being. His Father, Elohim, was still on His throne, but He put His “Davar,” His Word, or “will,” into the womb of a virgin by the power of His Ruakh (Spirit).
We believe Yeshua HaNatzri, Ben Yosef, grew up as every other Jewish boy of the first century would have. He was circumcised on the eighth day as a Jew in the covenant of Avraham. He observed the feasts of Yisra’el. He observed the Sabbath. He was perfect in His observance of all the Torah (instructions). He set the example to which we aspire. (I John 2:6)
We believe that because of this perfection, Yeshua received authority over even the elements of this world. He healed the sick, raised the dead, walked on water, and preached the Torah. He wept over the unbelief in Yisra’el, but rejoiced in the faith of the humble. He revealed His Father to Yisra’el. He expounded His Torah perfectly.
We believe Yeshua offered Himself in order to renew the Covenant of G-d with Yisra’el. (Jer 31:31-33) The Torah was not abolished, but the “agreement” on how to obtain forgiveness changed, this time offering the supplicant complete forgiveness and relief from the guilt incurred by all mankind in the Garden. Yeshua accomplished this by dying on the tree as a blood-atonement for the sins of all mankind. Without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sin. (Lev 17:11, Heb 9:22) He died for the sake of all mankind. No one deserved that love, but He gave it willingly. His Father, the Almighty Elohim, raised Him from the dead, and accepted His offering in the Holy Place in Heaven.
