HaYesod Program Resources
The resources—for groups and individual students—give everyone who desires to use the program all the tools they need to have a compelling Bible study into the Jewish roots of the Christian faith.
Overview of Resources
Lessons are comprehensive and well supported with solid, recognized Jewish and Christian sources. Leaders will be well-equipped to host a class with the ample information provided in the leadership resources. Students will walk away from each lesson with additional out-of-class lessons and resources for reviewing the lesson in detail.
Exploring the Jewish Foundation of Christianity, Book and Audiobook
To help solidify each lesson, we have created a short summary of the program that captures the heart of every lesson from HaYesod: The Foundation. This is presented in booklet and audiobook formats (Audio CDs and MP3s are available). These concise resources can be used effectively to assist you in sharing what you are learning with others, or introducing the HaYesod program in your community, and inviting friends to join your Bible study.
Program Videos (Digital and DVD formats)
The video lessons combine teachings on location in Israel with lectures from a Messianic Beit Midrash to give you a careful and articulate presentation of the Jewish roots of our faith, and the biblical Sabbath. Each of the two study modules, HaYesod: The Foundation, and the latest additional module HaYesod: The Sabbath, contains 10 video lessons. Additional video segments covering topics ranging from evangelism and doctrine to personal testimonies are included in the HaYesod: The Foundation module.
The well-presented and clear HaYesod Student Workbooks present the lesson outlines and material in detail and runs parallel to the video teachings from both HaYesod: The Foundation, and HaYesod: The Sabbath. Students fill in the blanks in the workbooks while watching the videos. The workbooks are full of additional helps such as a glossary of terms, pertinent Scripture quotations, additional sources, references, and citations.
The HaYesod Leadership Manuals are copies of the HaYesod Student Workbooks with many critical additions. Each Leadership Manual is a complete answer key to the Student Workbook and has additional leadership notes and helps. It is linked to the video tracks for lesson planning and review. HaYesod group leaders will be confident and equipped to lead successful studies in the foundations of their faith. This invaluable tool is also the group leader's guide to starting, hosting, and facilitating a successful HaYesod study.
The audio resources contain the all the HaYesod lessons from both HaYesod: The Foundation, and HaYesod: The Sabbath, on separate CDs and MP3s. Also included are ten bonus audio segments covering topics ranging from evangelism and doctrine to personal testimonies and group Bible studies from HaYesod: The Foundation.
HaYesod has been a blessing to our small group of six here in the far north of Scotland. We are five laymen and one seminary graduate. Two of us have been studying Torah with FFOZ for some time. The others are unfamiliar with FFOZ. We have found the HaYesod teaching to be rich in information and insight. Our group is looking forward to studying further with FFOZ. The teaching has been authoritative and equally important insightful in providing the context that has, in my experience, been absent in Christian teaching. Our intention at this point is to view FFOZ's online TV programs. Everyone is impressed with the quality of the HaYesod videos. Well done First Fruits!— John
