Recommended Resources

internet is a fabulous tool, but it’s vastness can be daunting when you’re not sure where to start looking. Is this resource reliable? Is it safe? We’ve put together a list of some of the resources that we believe will be helpful to you on your journey to search out the Scripture.

There are many Messianic and Torah teachers out there.  This list is not intended to be comprehensive, but rather to list the ones that we have found on our journey to be trustworthy and worthwhile.  While we do not agree with them on every point, we believe that the majority of what they have to offer is worthwhile.

We have broken them into two categories, Believers in Messiah & Jewish.  We believe that the Jewish teachers we have listed, have much to offer, but it is important to recognize that they do not believe in Yeshua as the Messiah.

As with all teachers, remember, “Beloved ones, do not believe every spirit, but prove the spirits, whether they are from Elohim, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.” (1 John 4:1)
