    You’ve actually brought up a subject I was pondering on the other day… I thought upon what “motivations” might be involved in the catalyst for our “family reunion”…
    I most emphatically support your understanding that once the Natural Branch sees & hears the Wild Branch blossoming with the fruit of the “Commandments & Moedin” that it would be “provoked to jealousy”…….,
    The question is ok, what will they do about it, or better yet what will they do with this prevocational jealousy ?
    Then I considered that the disciplines with which Judah has shown to keep the Torah’s sanctity; MUST once again be addressed because of their “exclusion” of Isaiah 52-53…
    Rashi’s biast must be revealed as a man’s “jealousy” in excluding this part of Scripture…
    Maybe it is WE the WILD BRANCH that need to correct this error and ADD (though not the right word, for we are not adding to the Word) this back in and “CORRECT the Torah Portions”…

    What better motivator to jealousy to cause them to examine these passages once again… ?

    Just a “Wild” thought…..

      Jaime; if I’m following you here, I believe that when we become zealous to live according to Moses (not the rabbis) who wrote of Y’shua; when we follow the example Y’shua established to keep the Father’s commands with love, patience and justice, then they will, indeed, be provoked to jealousy. Shalom.

    Shalom Bill,
    Nice commentary. It’s fascinating that I was doing an article which included Eph 2 which is what you mentioned. The article is called “The Ministry of Reconciliation” and is a compliment of another article called “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem – Shaalu Shalom Yerushalayim”

    My thesis is that Christianity does error when the say that Y’shua will be the Prince of Peace (Sar Shalom) in his second coming. As I’m sure you know, this is one of the main objections to the claim that Y’shua was the messiah from Judaism because the world is not in peace. My argument is that the death, burial and resurrection of Y’shua paid (discharged) the bill of divorce given to the House of Israel / Ephraim by YHVH and thereby eliminated the need for the “middle wall of partition”.

    By this act he has enabled both houses to be at shalom with each other if they choose. If the two houses are not at peace then there is no way the world can be at peace because all twelve tribes are to judge the nations. Unfortunately they have not chosen wisely. Both houses are at fault and I would argue that the main cause is that they both reject two house one covenant. This is what Paul is talking about in Eph 2 (and even Col 2:14). I come to call Paul the first to write on the subject of two house / one covenant. More precisely he is the first to write on this after the sacrifice of Y’shua because he understood what it meant (i.e. the mystery found in Rom 11:25).

    I also compare the Peace of Jerusalem (Shalom Yerushalayim) with the Peace of Rome (Pax Romana). Pax Romana is imposed peace, where peace is just the lack of war. This is better than anarchy, but you would be wise to pick the Peace of Jerusalem as it is much better. Shalom is more than just lack of war, it also completeness, this is because you are at peace with Elohim.
    My point is that Y’shua has done all he can to bring peace, at least the kind of peace that comes from Jerusalem. The peace that will come from his second coming with be like Pax Romana.

    If you would like me to send you the articles I mention, or wish to discuss this further please let me know.

    Col 2:14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

    Eph 2:14-18 KJV For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; (15) Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; (16) And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: (17) And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. (18) For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
