  • 00:04 ♪♪♪ male announcer: Welcome to "Our Jewish Roots,"
  • 00:06 with insightful Bible teaching from Israel by Dr. Jeffrey Seif.
  • 00:10 This week, we examine the principal teachings of Jesus on
  • 00:13 our new series, "Sar Shalom: Prince of Peace."
  • 00:19 ♪♪♪
  • 01:17 David: We're so glad you've joined us today.
  • 01:18 I am David Hart.
  • 01:20 Kirsten Hart: I'm Kirsten Hart.
  • 01:21 Jeffrey Seif: Jeffrey Seif here, and thrilled, thrilled to talk
  • 01:24 to you about "Sar Shalom," Hebrew Prince of Peace.
  • 01:30 Peace is in very high demand but very short supply
  • 01:34 these days, yes?
  • 01:36 David: I knew the Hebrew word for peace but I did not know
  • 01:38 the Hebrew word for prince.
  • 01:41 We now know "sar" is prince.
  • 01:43 Jeffrey: People know the word for peace, they just don't know
  • 01:45 peace, and it's important to know peace.
  • 01:51 And to know in Hebrew, here's another one, "yada," "I know,"
  • 01:55 from the Hebrew word "yad" which means hand.
  • 01:59 Peace needs to be experienced, not just defined.
  • 02:03 And the Lord came into the world to give us peace, yes?
  • 02:07 David: I don't think it's a coincidence that this series is
  • 02:09 happening with a lot of unrest, unpeace, I guess you could say,
  • 02:13 but it's gonna be a great series.
  • 02:15 Jeffrey: Yes, the lack thereof is ubiquitous in the world,
  • 02:17 it's everywhere, but the story's timeless, it really is,
  • 02:21 and very necessary for today.
  • 02:24 David: Yes, right now let's go up to the Galilee as we begin
  • 02:26 "Sar Shalom."
  • 02:31 narrator: "And Jesus went about all Galilee teaching in their
  • 02:34 synagogues and preaching the gospel of the kingdom.
  • 02:38 Seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain and his
  • 02:43 disciples came unto him and he taught them, saying,
  • 02:48 '[speaking foreign language]'."
  • 04:02 Jeffrey: His name is Yeshua.
  • 04:05 It's a Hebrew name that comes from a Hebrew verb meaning to
  • 04:07 save, to deliver, or to redeem.
  • 04:11 And if there ever was a person who lived up to their name,
  • 04:15 this was that person.
  • 04:19 Word of his doing just that, helping, healing, making whole,
  • 04:23 delivering, word of all that went out in advance of him,
  • 04:27 with the net result that thousands thronged to him.
  • 04:32 Matthew tells us in chapter 4, verses 23 through 5,
  • 04:36 that they came.
  • 04:38 People heard that he healed and they were despairing.
  • 04:41 They were vexed, perplexed, they needed some help and they heard
  • 04:44 that he delivered, and he did deliver.
  • 04:48 Not just words, but deeds, but because he was kindly disposed
  • 04:52 toward them, because they benefited by virtue of their
  • 04:55 brief association with them, they were a mind to come to this
  • 05:00 place and hear what he had to say.
  • 05:04 And what is this place?
  • 05:07 Well, there's the Galilee on one side, the mount where the
  • 05:10 so-called Sermon of the Mount was transacted on the other.
  • 05:14 Personally, the term, "Sermon on the Mount" doesn't abide with
  • 05:17 me, in part because it just sounds so boring, like, "Sermon
  • 05:21 on the Mount" as if Jesus is there, lecturing people.
  • 05:25 Actually, I prefer "Torah from the Top."
  • 05:29 And the word "Torah" is a Hebrew word for teaching.
  • 05:34 There, Yeshua went up to the mountain and he opened his mouth
  • 05:37 and I think we'd do well to begin to consider exactly what
  • 05:39 he had to say.
  • 05:42 Let me ask you a question.
  • 05:44 Inasmuch as Yeshua, Jesus, opened up his mouth to speak to
  • 05:47 them, can you be at a place in your life, yes, your very, very,
  • 05:53 very busy life, where you can open up your heart to listen, to
  • 05:59 listen deeply, not to me, but to what the Lord might be saying to
  • 06:04 you as you examine with me the essence and the substance of
  • 06:10 what it means to be authentically Christian or
  • 06:14 Christ-like in this world?
  • 06:18 The reason why I say that is because churches can and do, and
  • 06:22 understandably so, develop various creeds but here we hear
  • 06:27 from the boss himself about what it means to be Christian.
  • 06:31 I've often said that if you were on an ocean liner and you just
  • 06:34 opened up the Bible and cut out Matthew chapter 5, 6, and 7,
  • 06:38 stuffed it in a bottle, put a cork on it and threw it
  • 06:41 overboard, and if someone on some desert island somewhere who
  • 06:45 was marooned on a beach saw this bottle sweep onto the shore and
  • 06:49 opened it up, and if they read it, if they knew nothing about
  • 06:53 Jesus beforehand, just by reading this so-called Sermon on
  • 06:57 the Mount and coming to terms with it, they could understand
  • 07:00 what it means to be essentially a follower of Jesus.
  • 07:06 It's an important story, this so-called Sermon on the Mount.
  • 07:10 I'm glad that you've opted to go on the journey with me, if for
  • 07:13 about a half-hour, to begin to explore what Jesus said.
  • 07:18 I honestly believe that you'll be better by virtue of so doing
  • 07:22 and I wanna thank you for taking the time and investing the
  • 07:25 energies to wanna sit down and hear what Jesus has to say as I
  • 07:29 speak to you from this place, the place of the once-great
  • 07:34 Sermon on the Mount.
  • 07:38 ♪♪♪
  • 07:41 narrator: "Blessed are the poor in spirit, blessed are the meek,
  • 07:46 the merciful, the pure in heart."
  • 07:52 On a bleak winter's day a helpless man sits at the city
  • 07:57 gate, shivering in the bitter cold.
  • 08:01 One by one, they pass him, this wretched soul, this outcast.
  • 08:08 And then, from the shadows, steps one whose heart is pure
  • 08:13 and whose cloak is warm.
  • 08:19 "Rejoice and be glad for great is your reward in heaven."
  • 08:26 ♪♪♪
  • 08:32 Jeffrey: What did the Lord say when he opened up the Sermon
  • 08:33 on the Mount?
  • 08:35 He goes on record with, and I quote, "Blessed are the poor
  • 08:37 in spirit, blessed are those who mourn, blessed are the meek."
  • 08:43 I've asked myself on more than one occasion, "Pray tell, what's
  • 08:47 the blessing in being all miserable?"
  • 08:51 Well, first of all, by way of response, there's not a whole
  • 08:55 lot of blessing in being miserable.
  • 08:57 The point here is that what we can be blessed about is the fact
  • 09:00 that the poor are going to be rewarded, the meek are going
  • 09:04 to inherit.
  • 09:06 The point is we can be blessed because there's a blessing
  • 09:09 that's coming because if we come God's way, he comes our way.
  • 09:13 He delivers us, he helps us.
  • 09:16 He lifts people up out of dire straits.
  • 09:19 And it's for that reason that we can be blessed.
  • 09:23 That's Jesus' point, if I understand him correctly.
  • 09:27 I think the word "blessed" by the way, can somewhat obscure
  • 09:29 the point.
  • 09:32 The reason why I say that is the "blessed" expression in the
  • 09:35 English Bible comes by way of the Greek "makarios," which
  • 09:39 itself is better rendered from the Hebrew "ashreí" which means
  • 09:43 not blessed in some religious sense, but it's the
  • 09:46 word "happy."
  • 09:48 Happy are the poor, happy are the disenfranchised.
  • 09:51 Not because there's great happiness in being poor and
  • 09:54 disenfranchised, but when we're born anew we're born of the Son,
  • 09:58 we become a King's relative and there are blessings.
  • 10:02 He's not gonna leave us just wrapped around the axle.
  • 10:06 That's his point.
  • 10:08 And, by the way, the point that Jesus makes in the opening here
  • 10:11 in the Sermon on the Mount is very much akin to a point he
  • 10:13 makes in Psalm chapter 1 which I'm gonna show you right now.
  • 10:18 Jeffrey: "Blessed is the man," says the Psalmist, "who walks
  • 10:21 not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor who stands
  • 10:25 in the seat of the scornful; but his delight is in the law
  • 10:28 of the Lord."
  • 10:30 You might have heard that before.
  • 10:32 In the Hebrew it begins like the Sermon on the Mount, "ashreí
  • 10:36 ha-ish," "happy is the man" who walks with the Lord, who doesn't
  • 10:41 associate with the unscrupulous.
  • 10:44 And why can this person be happy?
  • 10:47 Oh, hear this.
  • 10:49 It is such a good word, especially for today.
  • 10:52 The Psalmist says this person is like "a tree planted by rivers
  • 10:55 of water, that brings forth fruit in its season."
  • 10:59 He describes his well, that it takes roots deep
  • 11:02 under the ground.
  • 11:04 Above ground, there can be, you know, lack of rain, there can be
  • 11:09 scorching heat, there can be difficulty but this man, whose
  • 11:13 delight is in the Lord and his ways and his people, he is
  • 11:16 connected to a source that gives him nourishment, even if it's
  • 11:19 not available in the general environment.
  • 11:23 The reason why I say that and the reason why I think the Lord
  • 11:26 said this is because people can find themselves bested
  • 11:30 by circumstances.
  • 11:33 This surely was the case in Jesus' day and today as well.
  • 11:36 Goodness, we inhabit a world that's wracked by all kinds
  • 11:39 of problems.
  • 11:41 That's the bad news.
  • 11:44 But this is the good news, and the good news according to
  • 11:47 Yeshua, Jesus, here on the Sermon on the Mount is that
  • 11:50 God's got a good plan for you.
  • 11:53 That's the word of the Psalms as well that if we walk with God,
  • 11:55 if we take him seriously, then similarly, he is going to walk
  • 11:59 with us and provide for us, difficulties in
  • 12:02 life notwithstanding.
  • 12:05 This is, in effect, the good news.
  • 12:09 And by the way, the term "good news" in Hebrew, "bsowrah,"
  • 12:15 sounds like a religious term, the good news.
  • 12:17 Bsowrah comes from the Hebrew "basar" which means flesh.
  • 12:22 That is to say, substance.
  • 12:24 It's not just flowery rhetoric.
  • 12:27 In the real world, according to the text, is a real God and he's
  • 12:30 really interested in taking care of you.

  • 14:07 Do you agree with that?
  • 14:09 Kirsten: It is, the history of it, the story of Jesus himself
  • 14:12 walking around the Sea of Galilee, and it's just
  • 14:15 spectacularly gorgeous and we get to go two times a year.
  • 14:20 I tell you, Israel is open.

  • 14:39 Kirsten: We do, we get to swim in the Sea of Galilee, the
  • 14:41 Dead Sea.
  • 14:43 It--there's great swimming.
  • 14:44 You get to experience the Holy Land, the food.
  • 14:46 There's so much, we could go on and on.
  • 14:47 David: Join us.
  • 14:49 Kirsten: Now let's go back up to the Galilee for more
  • 14:50 of today's teaching.
  • 14:54 Jesus: [speaking foreign language]
  • 15:09 You are the light of the world.
  • 15:13 A lamp is not lit to be placed under a basket, but on
  • 15:16 a lampstand.
  • 15:19 And it gives light to all who are in the house.
  • 15:23 Let your light so shine before men that they may see
  • 15:27 your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
  • 15:37 Jeffrey: At the base of the Mount of Olives, there's
  • 15:39 a garden called Gat Shemanim in Hebrew, Gethsemane.
  • 15:44 You might recall Yeshua, Jesus, went there to pray and he sweat
  • 15:48 blood that last night, that fateful night.
  • 15:52 It's interesting, it seems to me that Shemen or oil is produced
  • 15:57 by getting the olives together and putting them under pressure.
  • 16:01 And this oil is extracted that's then used to make ohr
  • 16:06 or in Hebrew, ohr is light.
  • 16:10 Light factors in various ways in the New Testament story.
  • 16:14 There were maidens that carry the light to pierce
  • 16:16 the darkness.
  • 16:19 In the passage that I wanna consider with you
  • 16:21 in this segment, Jesus says to his talmidim, to his disciples,
  • 16:24 quote, "You are the light of the world."
  • 16:28 He doesn't just say that.
  • 16:30 He says, "Similarly," in Matthew chapter 5, "that you are melach
  • 16:33 haaretz," you are the salt of the earth.
  • 16:37 What does the Lord mean when he tells the disciples that
  • 16:41 they're light, that they're salt?
  • 16:43 It's a reasonable question.
  • 16:46 That this comes on the heels of Jesus talking about, "You're
  • 16:49 gonna experience persecution, reviling, difficulties,
  • 16:52 so forth, and so on."
  • 16:54 It's not a very good story but to follow up and say,
  • 16:57 "Listen, you're the light of the world."
  • 17:00 It's an interesting juxtaposition of themes,
  • 17:03 it seems to me.
  • 17:05 And what I gather from it is that the suffering, the trials
  • 17:08 that we can experience, produce something in us that enable
  • 17:15 others to see something in us and thus to then have hope
  • 17:20 and direction through us.
  • 17:24 Why do I say that?
  • 17:26 Well, I didn't say it.
  • 17:27 John Wesley in his own way says: "If you set yourself on fire,
  • 17:31 other people will come to see you burn."
  • 17:34 I'm not a Buddhist monk opting for that kind of business
  • 17:37 but the point is that if you're really going through the thick
  • 17:41 of it and you keep your game face on, your virtue up, your
  • 17:45 faith, hope, your love, even amidst the turbulence of trying
  • 17:48 times, others are gonna come and take a deep look at you and say,
  • 17:52 "What does that person have?
  • 17:55 There's some worth that that person possesses."
  • 18:00 The reason why I mention that and this is lost to moderns when
  • 18:03 Jesus tells his disciples, "You were the salt of the earth,"
  • 18:08 he's talking about worth.
  • 18:10 The reason why I say that is the term for salt is where you get
  • 18:15 the term "salary" from, though that's lost to moderns.
  • 18:19 You ever hear the old expression, quote, "so and so is
  • 18:22 worth their weight in salt"?
  • 18:25 They used to divvy out payments to Roman soldiers in increments
  • 18:27 of salt.
  • 18:30 Again, that doesn't make sense to moderns but look it up
  • 18:33 if you think I'm lying.
  • 18:35 To say that you are the salt of the earth underscores that you
  • 18:38 have a particular kind of worth, even if you feel worthless.
  • 18:44 I mention that because you can go through all sorts of trials
  • 18:47 and you're just spent through it all.
  • 18:50 After describing that the disciples are going to be spent
  • 18:53 accordingly for Jesus to follow and say, "Hey, listen,
  • 18:56 you're the salt of the earth, you're the thing that preserves
  • 18:59 and gives value, you're the light of the world,
  • 19:03 that you give direction.
  • 19:04 Others see hope and they see me through you."
  • 19:09 Friends, here from the Galilee, let me encourage you to walk
  • 19:12 with the Lord even through difficulties 'cause the Lord
  • 19:16 has a way of working through it for his own good purposes,
  • 19:20 for his own good pleasure.
  • 19:24 David: Looked like such a beautiful day as Dr. Seif
  • 19:26 was teaching on location and also the gorgeous backdrop
  • 19:31 was just incredible, we love it.
  • 19:33 Kirsten: Phenomenal place, but phenomenal teaching also.
  • 19:36 Jeffrey: Well, you're kind to say it.
  • 19:38 Phenomenal book.
  • 19:40 You know, how do you mess this stuff up?
  • 19:42 I mean, to be in Israel, to have an open Bible.
  • 19:44 If you mess that up, you ought to be sued for malpractice.
  • 19:46 It's easy and it's beautiful, like you said.
  • 19:50 Kirsten: Something that you brought up and I love this.
  • 19:52 You were saying that if believers who read this don't
  • 19:56 understand the Jewishness of what Jesus is talking about, we
  • 20:01 really don't get it.
  • 20:03 Jeffrey: I liken it to this.
  • 20:05 You can, you know, there's black and white TV and there's color.
  • 20:08 And people can understand the Sermon on the Mount just 'cause
  • 20:10 the Holy Spirit, of course, just opens it up, but there's
  • 20:13 something about looking at it in its Jewish context,
  • 20:17 understanding the idiom of the recovery of our Jewish roots,
  • 20:21 I believe, I don't wanna sound self-serving in saying that,
  • 20:25 I just believe there's something about that and it's value added.
  • 20:29 David: I know you've been there many times where you taught.
  • 20:32 I mean, it's where Jesus taught.
  • 20:35 There's got to be something in you that just moves you
  • 20:39 every time you're there.
  • 20:41 Jeffrey: Yeah, I mean what really moved me to go
  • 20:43 into the ministry was I had the opportunity to teach Sunday
  • 20:45 School and I learned there was just something about opening up
  • 20:48 the Bible that just really resonated and so I decided
  • 20:52 to follow the dream, to follow the star, if you will.
  • 20:56 And having the opportunity to go to Israel, I went there first
  • 20:59 with Zola Levitt, the founder of this ministry,
  • 21:02 the late Zola Levitt, some 50 times since.
  • 21:05 And it's always just--it's a thrill, it really is.
  • 21:10 Kirsten: So talk about the Beatitudes.
  • 21:12 To me, it's like foundational, not really a learning but really
  • 21:17 how to live from the base up, foundation up, what it's like to
  • 21:20 live a Christian life and a life that follows Messiah.
  • 21:26 Jeffrey: I mean, you're onto it, man, because that's why I wanted
  • 21:28 to teach it in the first place.
  • 21:31 It just gets to the 101.
  • 21:33 I mean, there's a lot of failure in life.
  • 21:36 If success in life was easy, everybody would have it.
  • 21:38 A lot of people don't.
  • 21:40 There's a lot of roadkill on the highway of life and for those
  • 21:42 that want to open up the Bible and come to terms with Yeshua,
  • 21:44 with Jesus, the essence and substance of what it means to
  • 21:48 walk with him and be blessed by him, this is the go-to place.
  • 21:52 If it's all you ever read in the Bible, 5, 6, and 7 of Matthew,
  • 21:56 you ought to be able to get it.
  • 21:58 David: You said the word "blessed."
  • 22:00 Every phrase starts with the word "blessed,"
  • 22:03 "blessed are ye who," yeah.
  • 22:05 Jeffrey: Yes, indeed.
  • 22:07 That's where the word "beatitude" comes from.
  • 22:08 You know, there's a, you know, it's like there's
  • 22:10 a Ten Commandments, there's about as many there
  • 22:11 at the beginning and--
  • 22:13 Kirsten: Oh, that's interesting, that's good.
  • 22:14 Jeffrey: Yeah, these aren't just suggestions, you know?
  • 22:16 They're commandments.
  • 22:17 It just gets--don't do it for his sake.
  • 22:19 I mean, if you follow Jesus, follow Yeshua,
  • 22:20 don't do it for his sake, do it for your own.
  • 22:23 He doesn't need the help; we do.
  • 22:24 Kirsten: So much more of this whole series is I'm just looking
  • 22:26 forward to all of it and your teaching and your insight.
  • 22:28 Thank you so much, we have more to come, we'll be right back.

  • 23:43 Sarah Liberman: Shalom Haverim.
  • 23:45 One of the more common words you're gonna hear in Israel and
  • 23:47 use in Hebrew is the word "beseder" which means okay.
  • 23:52 So if somebody asks you, "How are you?"
  • 23:54 you can say, "Beseder."
  • 23:56 Now, the funny thing is that it actually means "in order."
  • 24:00 So when you say, "I'm okay," what you're actually saying is,
  • 24:03 "I'm in order."
  • 24:05 Now you can also use it as a question: "Are you okay?"
  • 24:10 So if you're gonna ask a guy, you would say, "Ata beseder?"
  • 24:14 and if you ask a girl, you would say, "At beseder?"
  • 24:18 So check around, look around, make sure everything is in order
  • 24:22 and you can say, "Ani beseder."
  • 24:27 Kirsten: Thank you, Sarah Liberman, toda raba, and you
  • 24:30 would say, "bevakashah."
  • 24:32 From Israel, Sarah writes our Personal Letter which is one
  • 24:35 of our two monthly publications that goes out to all our viewers
  • 24:38 and our readers so sign up on levitt.com
  • 24:43 for the Personal Letter.
  • 24:44 You will get to hear from Sarah every month and she's our boots
  • 24:47 on the ground in Israel with a good word that we send out.
  • 24:51 Jeffrey: A great Hebrew teacher too.
  • 24:52 Kirsten: She is.
  • 24:54 Jeffrey: You know, she's a mom that just got into--
  • 24:56 God just raises people up.
  • 24:58 Bunch of kids but she had music in her heart as well as Mom
  • 25:00 on her heart and she's all over the world now.
  • 25:02 Kirsten: She's another one of those Galileans.
  • 25:04 God's doing stuff with those Galileans.
  • 25:06 Jeffrey: We're glad to have her.
  • 25:08 David: They're on fire.
  • 25:09 Kirsten: And you're up in the Galilee teaching.
  • 25:11 Thank you so much for all of that.
  • 25:12 Jeffrey: Thanks for bringing me and us there.
  • 25:14 It's a we thing, not a me thing.
  • 25:16 I'm glad to participate 'cause of you and 'cause of you.
  • 25:19 David: I think we're back at the Mount of Beatitudes
  • 25:22 next week, right?
  • 25:24 Jeffrey: We're gonna hear from the King, speaking of which,
  • 25:26 maybe I should have worn purple.
  • 25:28 That's the color of kings.
  • 25:29 Kirsten: Our royal colors, thank you.
  • 25:31 Jeffrey: I didn't get the memo, but someone
  • 25:32 was paying attention.
  • 25:34 Kirsten: Ah, you look good.
  • 25:35 Your blue shirt on the Sea of Galilee was amazing.
  • 25:37 Jeffrey: Yeah, yeah, but we're doing the King of kings and
  • 25:38 you dressed for the occasion.
  • 25:40 I'm just sloppy old me.
  • 25:41 Kirsten: We do.
