History and Prophecy
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.
The Creation Covenant is the key covenant in Scripture out of which the other covenants, such as the Mosaic, Davidic and Sinai have their origins. This teaching lays an important foundation for understanding the Creation Covenant and its relationship to the Day of the Lord. Also called the Brit Olam, Eternal Covenant or Covenant of Fire, it is inextricably linked to the Holy of Holies and the service of the high priest. It was the high priest who would repair the breach in the broken covenant through atonement and so the Day of Atonement or Yom Kippur was designated as the day the original state would be restored.
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 series begins with a discussion on the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, which the sages concluded was a fig tree. Rashi, for instance, made an interesting observation about the tree saying, "By the very thing by which they were disgraced were they restored." The rich symbolism and imagery of the fig tree reveals that, not only does it represent Israel but, more significantly, it represents the Kings of Judah. You will also hear why Yeshua cursed the tree.
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 in an in-depth look at a very unique midrashic story in the Book of Judges. After a discussion of the history and geography of the Tabernacle in Shiloh where the Levite is from, the teaching explains Israel’s Ancient Marriage traditions of betrothal and full stage between the Levite and the Concubine. The significance of the Threshold covenant, and the redress of grievances the Levite obtains for the nation of Israel, as he chops up the Concubine into 12 pieces, is also explained.
This teaching takes a fresh, new look at the subject of the Mark of the Beast. She begins by discussing the phylacteries (the tefillin) and the concept of skin infections (tzar'at). Then she explores, in some detail, the letter "vav" (the number 6) and its significance in Scripture. Finally she weaves through the Bible looking at a number of personalities such as Cain, Nimrod, Nebuchadnezzar, David and Goliath before coming to a startling conclusion.
This is an in depth look at the doctrine of the rapture. The first session covers the historical questions of how and when it developed and identifies the popular Scriptures in the New Testament used to prove the case for this doctrine. The remaining sessions examine the rapture from the perspective of Second Temple period with a focus on the stories of Noah, Enoch and the Sons of God and the Daughters of Men.
The Temple is actually a model or microcosm of the universe and such represents the heavens and the earth. In this seven part teaching the pattern of the Temple, which is considered the center of the cosmos is primarily connected to the creation week. The teaching explores the significance of the firmament as the safety barrier between two worlds, and how the temple functions in the same way. It also explains how the earthly is patterned after the heavenly and how the temple brings stability to the universe.
This six-part teaching examines the “the Woman Clothed with the Sun” from Revelation chapter 12. Many theories have been put forth as to who she might represent and this teaching proposes yet another. By examining the creation week and its the connection to King Solomon, his mother Bathsheba and King Herod, who expanded the Second Temple, a new conclusion is uncovered.
The concept of the "Two Ages" is an important pattern in Scripture, which the sages spoke of often. They identified the "World to Come" (Olam Haba) as the age that exists outside of time, and "This Present Age" (Olam Hazeh) as the physical world we live in. This series explores the many examples of the expression Olam Haba and Olam Hazeh used throughout the Tanakh, as well as, in the gospels and epistles. It goes on to explain how these ages are connected to Yeshua the Messiah.
