A look at what it means to “return” to the Father. This teaching describes the physical ascent to Tziyon, using the geography of the area, to help unlock the understanding of the spiritual ascent of His children. Through the imagery of the “Tophet,” the most cursed place on earth, as well as the Gihon Spring and the Pool of Shiloach, this teaching reveals how we ascend through the power of the Holy Spirit who is reflected in the ceremony of the Rejoicing in the Water Drawing.
This teaching traces the concept of the birth of the Kingdom of Heaven from the creation all the way through the Scriptures to the book of Revelation. It explains how the creation of the universe in Genesis was accompanied by birth pains and how this pattern relates to the birth of the Messianic Kingdom. There is a special emphasis on the story of Noach, the Ark as the place where the seed is preserved, and the message of redemption in the dove and the olive leaf. The teaching specifically explains the imagery of a “woman writhing in labor” mentioned numerous times in the prophets.
This is a unique look at the popular festival of Chanukkah from the perspective of the temple. The only specific reference to Chanukkah in the Bible is found in John 10:22 where Yeshua was walking in the area called Solomon's Colonnade during the festival. The context here is key. Yeshua is addressing the temple leadership whom he refers to as thieves and robbers and then describes himself as the good shepherd. The imagery of sheep, wolves and the sheep-pen are all related to the temple.
Dr. Dye explains how the rabbis associated the dew of heaven with the resurrection of the dead. In this series, she explores the atonement and the resurrection in a number of stories in Scripture, which includes Elijah and the Widow, the manna in the desert, the fleece of Gideon, and the blessing Isaac bestowed upon Jacob. Dinah further reveals how the dew was connected to Yeshua's atonement at Golgotha and later his resurrection from the dead.
This teaching takes a look at the life and times of Hezekiah, King of Judah. The rabbis associated Hezekiah with the Messiah, and Sennacherib, Hezekiah’s enemy, with Gog and Magog. With that understanding, Dinah examines key figures, problems with dating, and prophetic symbolism that reveal the remarkable connection between Yeshua and Hezekiah and uncovers over twenty-five areas of congruency.
This is a comprehensive look at the wedding in ancient Israel. The series examines, in detail, the two stages of marriage, Erusin and Nis’uin, as well as the wedding week as a pattern in Israel’s annual festivals. In this teaching, Dinah reveals how all the covenants relate to the marriage contract and how symbols, such as the tefillin and the tallit, relate to the wedding ceremony.
This teaching examines the Festival of the New Moon by focusing on John chapter three and its discussion on how one is "born again." Dr. Dye examines the roots of the festival from Gen 1:14 by explaining the relationship between the sun and the moon, David and Jonathan, John and Yeshua, and Elijah and the Messiah. She also discusses Shekinah, the indwelling presence of God, and how this relates to the renewal of the moon each month.
Although the water drawing ceremony is not specifically mentioned in the Bible, it developed into a unique and rich celebration by the time of the Second Temple Period. Allusions to this ceremony can be found in the Tanakh as well as in John 7-9 as Yeshua speaks of “rivers of living water flowing from one’s innermost being”, and as the blind man washed his eyes in the Pool of Shiloach. The sages also spoke of the water drawing as a rehearsal for creation connecting it to the pouring out of water into a basin on the great altar.
This 6-part series explores the relationship, from the book of John, between the festivals, the marriage week and the Torah portion readings of the first century. Dinah's premise is that the book of John covers a three and one-half year cycle of Temple festivals related to the three and one-half year Torah readings. The book of Revelation represents the completed wedding week of seven years
