  • 01:18 David Hart: Thank you so much for joining us today,
  • 01:20 I'm David Hart.
  • 01:21 Kirsten Hart: I'm Kirsten Hart.
  • 01:22 Jefferey Seif: And I am Jeffrey Seif,
  • 01:24 and I'm begging you not to throw out the Hebrew Bible,
  • 01:28 the older testament so called.
  • 01:30 There's stuff in there for us.
  • 01:32 Jesus didn't come to dump it, did he?
  • 01:34 Kirsten: No, he came to fulfill it.
  • 01:37 And I believe in today's program, you're going
  • 01:39 to be teaching that he wants us to live it out.
  • 01:42 But it's not as hard as some made it out to be?
  • 01:45 Jefferey: I mean, the principles are timeless.
  • 01:47 You know, people dump on the literature, but as I like
  • 01:49 to say this, Ten Commandments, which of those do you want
  • 01:51 to say is not applicable?
  • 01:53 Murder, no, we can do some murdering.
  • 01:54 If you got to steal, it's all good.
  • 01:56 No, I mean, the important thing is to see how this stuff applies
  • 02:00 to life today, not how to throw it all under the bus.
  • 02:04 David: I love what the title is of the series, "Sar Shalom,"
  • 02:07 which we just learned is the prince of peace.
  • 02:12 That's what it's all about, peace.
  • 02:14 Jeffrey: And if we live a just and equitable life,
  • 02:16 we have peace.
  • 02:17 Without that, we experience disequilibrium, and people
  • 02:21 can live with this internal dialogue that's discombobulated.
  • 02:26 And we need to learn to follow God's will and ways,
  • 02:29 and when we don't to experience the peace
  • 02:31 that's available through forgiveness.
  • 02:33 David: I haven't always lived that way, have you?
  • 02:35 Jeffrey: No.
  • 02:37 David: This is a great teaching today on how we should live.
  • 02:39 Jeffrey: I believe it surely is, right from the Lord's mouth.
  • 02:42 David: Right, right now let's go up to the Galilee
  • 02:44 as we continue "Sar Shalom."
  • 02:47 ♪♪♪
  • 03:16 male narrator: And he came to Nazareth.
  • 03:19 And as his custom was, he went into the synagogue
  • 03:22 on the Sabbath day and stood up to read.
  • 03:25 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Isaiah.
  • 03:30 [speaking foreign language]
  • 03:46 Jeffrey: I think he wasn't just being specific,
  • 03:49 I think he was being emphatic when he said,
  • 03:53 "Do not think I have come to abolish the Torah.
  • 03:59 I didn't come to abolish the Torah or the Nevi'im,
  • 04:02 the law of the prophets.
  • 04:04 I came to fulfill them."
  • 04:07 Again, not just a specific statement,
  • 04:09 but probably there's an exclamation point attached.
  • 04:12 The reason being that, of course, Jesus didn't come
  • 04:15 to throw away things Jewish.
  • 04:18 I mean, it's a simple point, true, but many didn't get it.
  • 04:21 Going through the first century into the second century, many
  • 04:25 Christians were so convinced that obviously Jesus wants
  • 04:29 nothing to do with the Hebrew Bible that it was not even
  • 04:33 considered part of sacred literature.
  • 04:36 It took a considerable amount of energy for the church to come
  • 04:39 to terms to the fact that the Hebrew Bible was still part
  • 04:43 of the Christian testimony, if you can imagine that.
  • 04:46 It is so bizarre, but sad to say it is so very true.
  • 04:49 And the reason why I mention that is because it's amazing how
  • 04:52 individuals who want to follow Jesus can be so unaware of the
  • 04:56 essence and substance of what he's really talking about.
  • 04:59 Jesus didn't come to knock the legs out of things Jewish,
  • 05:02 but to offer fulfillment to the hopes and the aspirations
  • 05:06 and the literature, the divine literature of the Jewish people.
  • 05:10 One needn't take my word for it, just visit the literature, where
  • 05:13 he said again, "Do not think I have come to destroy
  • 05:16 the law or the prophets.
  • 05:18 I didn't come to destroy, but to fulfill."
  • 05:21 Jesus isn't about destroying people and destroying stuff,
  • 05:27 Jewish people, Jewish stuff, Old Testament stuff.
  • 05:32 Jesus didn't come to put all that down.
  • 05:36 Tragically, however, that has not been the church's story.
  • 05:40 One can look at medieval art and architecture.
  • 05:44 In churches around Europe, there's statues depicting one
  • 05:48 woman, Ecclesia Triumphans, the picture of the church
  • 05:52 triumphant, proud and strong.
  • 05:55 And next to her is a statue of this woman that's shamed,
  • 05:59 that's downcast, looking down, depicting the synagogue.
  • 06:05 It's tragic how it went that way because Jesus, according to his
  • 06:08 own words, never wanted it to go that way.
  • 06:12 He rather was game to show people, to use the Pauline
  • 06:16 language, a more excellent way.
  • 06:19 Jesus didn't come to trounce all that, but rather to fulfill it,
  • 06:23 to show individuals how to live it out.
  • 06:26 And that is exactly what he does in the Sermon on the Mount by
  • 06:30 saying, you know, "Here's the way others have understood that,
  • 06:33 but let me tell you what it really means.
  • 06:36 Let me show you how it's fulfilled.
  • 06:38 Let me show you how you can mine the biblical story and find
  • 06:42 practical street level value."
  • 06:45 Jesus's point, if there's any criticism, he says when he
  • 06:48 finishes that, "Unless your righteousness exceeds that of
  • 06:52 the scribes and the Pharisees, then you're in trouble."
  • 06:56 The problem isn't with the literature, the Old Testament
  • 06:58 sense as much as it is the way the people
  • 07:01 were misconstruing it.
  • 07:03 Jesus came to set that right.
  • 07:05 And in the Sermon on the Mount, he does just that by unpacking
  • 07:11 the essence and the substance of what it means to walk with God
  • 07:15 according to the Old Testament, according to the new.
  • 07:38 [shouting]
  • 07:40 narrator: A simple disagreement between neighbors
  • 07:43 and the resulting heated exchange.
  • 07:50 Neither side will back down as the bitterness is left to anger.
  • 07:57 Anger has led to fermenting rage.
  • 08:02 And now, all common sense is gone.
  • 08:05 What began in the heart has led to this.
  • 08:12 Jeffrey: I've seen anger, and frankly I've seen murder.
  • 08:16 And I want to tell you it doesn't look good.
  • 08:19 If you know of any police officers, firefighters,
  • 08:24 paramedics, talk to them about it because there isn't a one
  • 08:28 that hasn't gone to a crime scene to see what happens
  • 08:31 when the anger genie is let out of the bottle.
  • 08:35 The reason why I mention that is this is exactly
  • 08:37 what Jesus is talking about.
  • 08:39 He says here, "You've heard it said, 'You shall not murder.'"
  • 08:43 And he goes on to give voice to that and more here when he says,
  • 08:46 "But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother
  • 08:49 without a cause," and frankly I like the "without a cause"
  • 08:54 clause because sometimes there is a kind of justified anger,
  • 08:58 but not of the sort that leads to what he goes on
  • 09:01 to describe here.
  • 09:03 He says, "Those who then call their brother by various
  • 09:07 disparaging terms, whoever says, 'Raca!'"
  • 09:10 which is a term meaning to spit.
  • 09:14 That is, things deteriorate to the point where people are
  • 09:18 performing in ways that are just ghastly, it's bombastic.
  • 09:23 He says, "Whoever says, 'You fool!'
  • 09:25 will be in danger of the hell fire."
  • 09:29 If I understand Jesus correctly, he is tapping into not just that
  • 09:36 people commit acts of murder, but that the impulses that
  • 09:40 prompt fracture and social decay, those impulses reside
  • 09:46 in our hearts as we interact with other people,
  • 09:49 sometimes improperly.
  • 09:52 And we allow this stuff just to unravel.
  • 09:55 And Jesus isn't as much concerned at this juncture about
  • 09:58 the act of murder as much as the deterioration
  • 10:01 within that precipitates it.
  • 10:05 Well, we all have human natures, we all work with people.
  • 10:07 And how should we work with people if we're to walk more
  • 10:11 closely behind Jesus?
  • 10:13 Well, he says in verse 24, he gives a story here, he says if
  • 10:17 you're ready to give a gift unto the Lord, but you realize
  • 10:21 there's problems with your brother, he says to quote him,
  • 10:24 "First be reconciled to your brother, and then come
  • 10:28 and offer your gift."
  • 10:30 I think there's some real profundity here and there's
  • 10:34 implications for people that are involved in, you know,
  • 10:37 Christian ministry or Christian life.
  • 10:40 You know, in church, we offer our various gifts.
  • 10:42 And the context here is someone's about to offer
  • 10:46 a gift in the temple.
  • 10:48 You know, some religious sacrifice,
  • 10:50 some extension of piety.
  • 10:52 And the Lord says, "You know, but if you're all wrapped around
  • 10:55 the axel with a brother and a sister, take care of that first
  • 11:00 and then take care of your religious obligation."
  • 11:03 The point is that it's incumbent upon individuals
  • 11:06 to maintain relationship.
  • 11:08 Hence, he says, quote, "First be reconciled to your brother."
  • 11:15 If I understand Jesus, he would prefer that we develop
  • 11:19 mechanisms to stay in communion one with another,
  • 11:22 to stay in community.
  • 11:24 We live in a culture tragically where there's so much rupture,
  • 11:28 there's so much disorientation.
  • 11:30 And it sends people out of control individually.
  • 11:33 Husbands, wives go separate ways, the kids fall through
  • 11:36 the cracks, churches fracture, things crater.
  • 11:40 It's really horrible, frankly.
  • 11:42 We've got to put an end to this, and how do we do that?
  • 11:44 Well, Jesus says that we need to place a premium
  • 11:48 on reconciliation.
  • 11:51 Hear me on this as I close, it's easy to find what's wrong
  • 11:53 with a person, it's harder to find what's right.
  • 11:56 Let's find what's right, let's do what's right,
  • 11:58 let's look to be reconciled.
  • 12:00 And by virtue of our so doing, we're going to please Jesus,
  • 12:04 who said, "Better to be reconciled to your brother."

  • 13:13 David: As you've seen, the Mount of Beatitudes
  • 13:15 is a gorgeous location.
  • 13:16 It's like a state park, where we take you there twice a year,
  • 13:21 both in the spring and the fall.
  • 13:23 We take communion there, we worship together,
  • 13:25 we read Scripture.
  • 13:27 There's something there that you really like.
  • 13:28 Kirsten: If you know me at all,
  • 13:30 it's about the food in Israel.
  • 13:32 Mount of Beatitudes, there's a gorgeous church right there,
  • 13:35 but they have at the entrance, they have the best iced coffee.
  • 13:37 Okay, that's just a little-- a little heads up on that.
  • 13:40 Also, Jeff was teaching in ancient Capernaum,
  • 13:43 we go there also.
  • 13:45 So, everywhere kind of that you're seeing Dr. Seif today
  • 13:47 on our program, you get to walk in the same footsteps.
  • 13:50 We offer tours there two times a year in the fall
  • 13:53 and in the spring, levitt.com.
  • 13:55 We would love to have you jump on the bus with us.
  • 13:57 David: Yes.
  • 13:59 Kirsten: Now, let's go back to the Galilee.
  • 14:22 narrator: It's the close of a peaceful, warm summer's day.
  • 14:27 For some, it's a time when all is right.
  • 14:30 And for some, it's a time when all is wrong.
  • 14:34 "And the Lord spoke unto the multitude, 'You have heard it
  • 14:38 said, "Thou shalt not commit adultery."
  • 14:42 But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her
  • 14:48 has already committed adultery with her in his heart.'"
  • 14:56 Jeffrey: Jesus went on record saying that whoever looks
  • 15:00 at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery
  • 15:04 with her in his heart.
  • 15:08 Of course, I've never looked at a woman twice.
  • 15:12 And you know, I've never had an issue like that,
  • 15:16 hence I'm in a position to speak in an informed way
  • 15:18 about what Jesus is talking about here,
  • 15:21 having been all healed and delivered.
  • 15:25 Well, that's not quite true, is it?
  • 15:28 At the end of the day, you can put reverend, doctor, pastor,
  • 15:32 televangelist in front of a guy, but at the end of the day,
  • 15:35 a man is still a man, a woman is still a woman,
  • 15:40 a human is still a human,
  • 15:42 and we all have these sexual energies within us.
  • 15:46 Pray tell then, what is Jesus talking about?
  • 15:52 He goes on to say that after informing that individuals do
  • 15:56 have those tensions and energies within, he goes on to say
  • 16:02 that if something causes you to sin, cut it off.
  • 16:07 "If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out."
  • 16:12 Those are some interesting expressions, and I might add
  • 16:16 they have not always been understood correctly
  • 16:18 by enthusiastic church men.
  • 16:21 One fellow in particular named Origen castrated himself.
  • 16:27 Well, that's insane, isn't it?
  • 16:30 You know, I appreciate enthusiasm I might add,
  • 16:32 but that's taking it a little bit too far.
  • 16:37 What's Jesus talking about when he says, "You've heard it was
  • 16:40 said, 'Don't commit adultery,' but I'm telling you,"
  • 16:43 and he tells you the things that I just reminded you of.
  • 16:46 What does he mean by that?
  • 16:48 And when he says, "Listen, if something causes you to sin,
  • 16:51 get rid of it."
  • 16:53 Is the maker of heaven and earth and the humans upon the earth
  • 16:57 who gave us sexual energies to propel us and the species
  • 17:01 forward, having made that within us, is he now telling us
  • 17:05 that it's acceptable for that to be within us?
  • 17:07 Frankly, I think not. What then?
  • 17:12 It's my understanding that having those passions and those
  • 17:16 interests as we do, we do well to take pains to keep the genie
  • 17:22 in the bottle until the time.
  • 17:26 And what do I mean by that?
  • 17:28 There is a legitimate way to have sexual expression.
  • 17:32 It's called the union of marriage.
  • 17:34 If I understand the Bible correctly, there's not supposed
  • 17:36 to be sexual contact without a contract.
  • 17:41 Absent that, hands off is the policy.
  • 17:45 But there's certain things that people do that inflame
  • 17:47 the passions within.
  • 17:50 Pornography is an example of that.
  • 17:52 When you hear Jesus saying, "If something causes you to sin,
  • 17:56 cut it off," getting rid of that might be a good way to go.
  • 18:01 Similarly in the way that we dress.
  • 18:04 If one dresses in a way in order to evoke sin in others,
  • 18:08 it's best they nip that in the bud and conduct themselves
  • 18:12 in a manner that more befits Christian resolution.
  • 18:16 There are different ways that different people
  • 18:18 can do different things.
  • 18:20 The point is we're supposed to look at marriage as holy,
  • 18:24 and we're supposed to look at sexual activity as holy within
  • 18:27 the confines of marriage, and to take pains to ensure
  • 18:32 that we're working within that particular frame of reference.
  • 18:36 I've often said with my own boys I can labor to raise them for
  • 18:40 20 years, and the wrong girl can undo that in about 20 seconds.
  • 18:44 Men, women, let's all of us take pains to walk before the Lord
  • 18:48 in holiness and righteousness.
  • 18:50 If we do that, we'll find the love we're looking for.
  • 18:53 If we don't, we won't.
  • 19:06 Kirsten: Okay, that just got real.
  • 19:08 I mean, real issues.
  • 19:11 Can we say it just jumped from like a G rated program to PG-13?
  • 19:16 There's not a lot of fluff right there.
  • 19:18 Jeffrey: Probably more than PG-13, you know?
  • 19:20 There's stuff here, you know, the Lord talks about.
  • 19:22 It really gets to the--it really gets right down to it,
  • 19:26 doesn't it?
  • 19:27 David: We need to hear about it.
  • 19:29 I don't know if preachers are preaching much about
  • 19:30 that these days, I don't know.
  • 19:32 Jeffrey: No, it's a lot of feel good so everybody comes back.
  • 19:34 And of course, people can go click now if people
  • 19:37 don't want to hear us.
  • 19:39 But you know, we're supposed to put some things away.
  • 19:43 And we're different, we're a different kind of people.
  • 19:47 You know, I look at this passage and I can relate to everything
  • 19:50 in there 'cause I'm human being.
  • 19:52 I have those--I have those tensions within me as I journey
  • 19:56 through life because I'm shackled with a base nature.
  • 20:00 But I want to be loyal to my Lord, I want to be loyal
  • 20:04 to my wife, I want to be loyal to my ministry.
  • 20:06 I don't want to bring any reproach to those that are
  • 20:09 advancing the kingdom.
  • 20:11 And there's some things here, put them away.
  • 20:15 You can see this in the literature.
  • 20:19 If something causes you to sin, throw it away.
  • 20:21 To get rid of things, and it's important that we do that,
  • 20:24 I believe.
  • 20:26 David: I was reminded from your teaching that I remember
  • 20:27 back in maybe the '80s when computers were really starting
  • 20:30 to come about that I didn't want to get one because you heard
  • 20:34 that pornography pops up every time you turn on the computer.
  • 20:38 That's not true.
  • 20:39 Kirsten: I was going to say it's kind of the day and age
  • 20:41 that we're living in.
  • 20:43 We're--you know, at first, it was a shock,
  • 20:45 but now we're kind of used to it.
  • 20:47 But back then, I mean, it wasn't quite out there.
  • 20:50 I mean, it was happening, but it's not quite out--
  • 20:52 we see it everything we turn on, our tablets, our phones.
  • 20:56 We see that kind of lust and adultery.
  • 20:59 But back then, it's very interesting
  • 21:01 that he brought up these topics to talk about and teach.
  • 21:04 Jeffrey: Yes, it wasn't as much.
  • 21:05 I like to say a young man today can see more naked women in
  • 21:08 a lifetime--in a nighttime than Solomon saw in a lifetime.
  • 21:11 That the temptation is there to be sure.
  • 21:14 But pivoting from the analogy, the technology, you know,
  • 21:17 over lunch, you know, we were looking at iPhones.
  • 21:21 And Clayton, who was an assistant producer here, showed
  • 21:25 his, it's one of the original ones from a number of years ago.
  • 21:29 When this new technology that comes out,
  • 21:31 some people get the new.
  • 21:34 And I mention that because not to disrespect Clayton for
  • 21:37 holding on to the old, but the point is there's something new
  • 21:40 here in the kingdom, there's something new here
  • 21:42 with the gospel.
  • 21:43 And because of the new opportunity on the table, people
  • 21:46 are beckoned to get rid of the old way of being in favor
  • 21:50 of the new technology, the new way.
  • 21:52 And I think that's the good news in the story.
  • 21:56 David: I got reprimanded once at church from looking
  • 22:00 at the Bible on my phone from an old saint.
  • 22:05 Jeffrey: Yeah, because it's not what they're used to.
  • 22:08 And as a professor, I always see people on the phones
  • 22:11 and I think, "Oh, goodness gracious,
  • 22:13 why aren't they opening up their Bibles?"
  • 22:14 But that's where the Bible was, it's a new world.
  • 22:16 Kirsten: But Solomon also said,
  • 22:18 "There's nothing new under the sun."
  • 22:20 So, what we deal with in life, those people--those people.
  • 22:24 The people in Jesus's day, they also dealt with it.
  • 22:26 And that's what's so beautiful about his teaching is it relates
  • 22:29 to people then as it relates to us now.
  • 22:31 Jeffrey: Yes, and what's new is the new covenant, a new deal.
  • 22:34 The opportunity of a lifetime should be seized within
  • 22:36 the lifetime of the opportunity.
  • 22:38 And it's the opportunity to get something new with Jesus,

  • 23:28 Sarah Liberman: Shalom haverim.
  • 23:30 We're here in Jerusalem.
  • 23:31 One of the words you'll hear in a restaurant or at a dinner
  • 23:34 table when you're served food is beteavon,
  • 23:38 which means good appetite.
  • 23:40 Or like the French say, bon appetit.
  • 23:43 It actually means in appetite, beteavon.
  • 23:48 So, when you serve your meal or when I give my children
  • 23:51 something to eat, I can say, "Beteavon."
  • 23:53 It's like saying, "Have a good meal."
  • 23:56 So, this week, when you serve food or when you're sitting at
  • 24:00 a restaurant and you're about to eat, you can say, "Beteavon."
  • 24:04 David: We hope you're enjoying the Hebrew lessons
  • 24:06 from our good friend, Sarah Liberman.
  • 24:09 It's been a good day today, hasn't it?
  • 24:11 Kirsten: A lot of practical teaching.
  • 24:13 And I just--if you don't mind, I don't want to make you angry,
  • 24:17 bring up the fact that you talk about anger
  • 24:19 and how to deal with that.
  • 24:20 There's some angry people in the world right now.
  • 24:22 Jeffrey: That's true.
  • 24:24 A lot of passion, you know, stuff stirred up.
  • 24:26 And I get that, life isn't always the way
  • 24:29 we want it politically, interpersonally.
  • 24:31 It is what it is.
  • 24:33 People need the Lord, he's the Prince of Peace.
  • 24:36 Kirsten: And that's the opposite of the anger
  • 24:38 that you talked about.
  • 24:40 Jeffrey: That's right.
  • 24:41 Kirsten: Or that Jesus taught about.
  • 24:43 Jeffrey: There is a way to-- even amidst the difficulties,
  • 24:47 the turbulence of trying times, there is a peace
  • 24:51 that passes understanding and that's available
  • 24:54 for the reaching, for the asking, you know?
  • 24:57 And if you haven't asked, do it.
  • 25:01 This isn't--you know, people watch TV for entertainment.
  • 25:05 We're looking for transformation,
  • 25:08 not just giving inspiration or information.
  • 25:11 Lives can change on the inside, anger can go and be replaced
  • 25:15 by a new disposition that comes replete
  • 25:17 with confidence and hope.
  • 25:19 David: That's right, so much more on this series to come,
  • 25:22 we hope you stay with us.
  • 25:24 We end this day with a song from our founder, Zola Levitt,
  • 25:27 and we also end with...
  • 25:29 Jeffrey: A word from the Lord himself in Psalms in Hebrew,
  • 25:33 sha'alu shalom Yerushalayim.
  • 25:35 David: Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
