Welcome to Home Shalom!

Welcome to Home Shalom and Shalom Farm. We pray your visit here be blessed. We are learning to walk in the Ways (Torah) of our Father YHWH and follow Y'shua, His Messiah until He returns to "set things straight". We call it a "Messi-Life". Our walk is neither tidy nor perfect, but it is filled with passion, devotion and desire to serve our King. We are learning to be humble servants, and to be good stewards of the things that He has entrusted to us: His Word, our marriage, our children, our family, our community, our health, and our farm. Hitch your horse and stay a while--our door is always open!

The Passover Problem Solved...

For the decade or so that I was a mainstream Christian, there was absolutely no debate nor even a lingering doubt about the traditional timeline of Messiah's last week (pre-resurrection). Good Friday was obviously a Friday, right? Nobody had ever brought up the (now) obvious problem of Yeshua's words about Jonah being in the belly of the fish for 3 days and 3 nights, and that being the sign of the true Messiah. A Friday crucifixion and a Sunday morning resurrection simply did not meet those criteria.

Then, once becoming familiar with our Hebrew roots, the 3 days and 3 nights issue was solved with a better understanding of how Passover is honored from a scriptural perspective. However, now we had a new issue. There seemed to be a rush to force all of the aspects and elements of a traditional Jewish seder into the gospel accounts of Yeshua's final meal. Was "The Last Supper" really a "Passover seder"? How could Yeshua be the host of a seder, AND the "main course" at the same time?

Here is a GREAT yet simple article by Tom Bradford that answers both questions in an honest and encouraging way.
