A year or so ago, God put it on my heart to launch a magazine that would represent the unique combination of values and Kingdom principles we aim to reproduce within our Tikkun America family of congregations and ministries.

Matthew 5:5 part 2 of 2

Matthew 5:5 Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. In several commentaries on this verse, I found the concept that these “meek” people are those who have abandoned bitterness, and have no revenge motivation.

Matthew 5:5 part 1 of 2

Matthew 5:5 Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. What’s this? The meek shall “shout out with delight (Ashre)?” Doesn’t sound like meekness to me. The Greek word is transliterated Praus, meaning “mild or gentle.” The Hebrew word chosen by Delitzsch is HaAnavim, meaning “the humble.” The transliteration looks like the Hebrew…
