Love Thy Neighbor (Part 2): A Torah Beginners Guide

by | Nov 15, 2022

A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity. Proverbs 17:17

If you have read my previous article on this subject, you will remember that Messiah Yahusha and His apostles were very clear on the subject of loving one another and how it is the second most important commandment, coming directly after loving Yahuah. This time I want to talk a little about the very clear and specific instructions that Yahuah provided throughout Scripture about how exactly we are to love our neighbour.

Unfortunately, most believers are unaware that we are given quite detailed instructions on how to love one another – and the instructions are called the Torah! Many believe that “loving others” is a new concept that Yahusha introduced, putting the concept of general “love for ‘God’ and others” above the Law, or even cancelling the Law out with the Two Commands of Messiah.

Some of the most direct and simple instructions on how to actually, physically, actionably love others can be found in the Ten Commandments that most of us learnt about as children. Commandments 5-10 are all about what we should and shouldn’t do to others, so we’ll be looking at each of those individually, and then move on to some of the other less-known instructions from the Torah on how to love our neighbour.

Miss Rivqah is born!

AND no, she wasn’t born standing up. That would be totally amazing if true. Rivqah is nearly 4 months old now, her birthdate being on July 7, and as you can see, she loves standing with assistance. Sarah and I are in our 40’s, have been married for over 20 years, and never thought we could have any more children. Rivqah decided to surprise us when we least expected it, and here she is, tada! all smiles. Yahuah is truly amazing. Expect plenty more of her in upcoming announcements. I may throw her in when you least suspect it. You can read her birth story here.

Miss Rivqah.

Rebecca L. Gould: A growing family at TUC!

IN my last newsletter I made mention of Rebecca L. Gould without ever giving a photo reveal. Well, here she is. The lovely Rebecca. Rebecca came to TUC during the summer of 2021 after following the breadcrumb trail from Rob Skiba and Nephelim research and soon thereafter began following the Torah. She has been an enormous help to the TUC ministry ever since that time, editing books for publication as well as running the podcast and administrating the TUC community, among other  tasks. ‘The Earth Not a Globe Review: Volume I’ and ‘The Legends of the Jews: Volumes I-IV’ would not have happened without her. 

New Article Archives

A GREAT deal many of my readers have been asking for a single page where my articles can be accessed and I don’t blame them. The sheer volume has become dizzying. Just know that the list provided here is far from complete, though I do say it’s a good start. It’s not that I’m holding anything back. I have been attempting to convert my catalogue of work into pdf files over the last so many months and that is no small easy task. The greater bulk is published all throughout my website. You’ll have to fish for them until I get around to it.
