What HaYesod Students Say

Comments from students who have completed the HaYesod discipleship course.

We both enjoyed your course which we have now completed. It is well-presented, in the videos and in the manuals. We have long been familiar with the Sabbath, Holy Days of God, clean foods, etc, as that is part of our Church of God background. Besides these fundamental teachings, other questions will arise for individuals regarding New Covenant applications of walking in the covenant way of life. We see these questions arising for the apostles in the book of Acts, etc. With the coming of the New Covenant it became relevant to discern which of the Torah laws are applicable for believers, just as it was always necessary to discern which laws were applicable for whom prior to the New Covenant. We believe it is this discernment we see at work within the pages of the New Testament, rather than some laws being obligatory for Jewish believers solely on the grounds they are Jewish, and not obligatory for Gentile believers solely on the grounds they are not Jewish. We would also avoid placing any Jewish tradition, however meaningful, into the same category as the Torah. So while we differ in some respects from some of your approaches, we thank you again for the opportunity of doing this course, and wish you well in all your future endeavours.

Kindest regards,
Selwyn and Gillian Vivian

I was truly so very blessed learning of my Jewish roots. The format was so easy fun and full of such deep truths. Hayesod had me hooked the first time and I must have finished it in record time. I would love to do more studies like this in the future but unfortunately I cannot afford the Torah club at this time, how I wish I could for it would be a tremendous blessing. All you guys were great and fun, thanks.
