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 teaching examines the feminine nature of the Holy Spirit and the Spirit's role in creation, as well as, the Spirit's role in the marriage relationship. Dr. Dye explores an important Kingdom pattern revealed in the relationship between Adam and Eve, Jacob and Israel and the sevenfold Spirit and the Father. By connecting these elements, Dinah illustrates how every marriage is a building block for the entire universe.
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 is a two-part teaching that begins by examining the altar of burnt offering and its relationship to repentance in connection with Abel and Isaac. The second part compares the events surrounding the well where Moses rescued the seven daughters of Jethro, with the well where Yeshua met the Samaritan woman. The first session is called "Death at the Altar" and the second "Life at the Well."
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
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.
This teaching examines the woman in Proverbs who is personified as Wisdom. It answers the question of who and why she is so important. The teaching also delves into the Apocalyptic traditions of the Second Temple period and explores the concept of “myth” from the perspective of the Ancient Near East world. All this points to a vision of the heavenly world which corresponded to or represented a situation on earth.
