My Heart is for Israel

In my last post, we finished the first half of the Olivet Discourse contained in Matthew 24.  In this post, we will begin to unpack Matthew 25 as we wrap-up Yeshua’s teachings in the Christian Torah.

Yeshua told three more parables to clarify further what it means to be spiritually vigilant ~ ready for His return and how to live until He comes. The ten bridesmaids (Matthew 25:1-13) teach that every person is responsible for his or her own spiritual condition.  The story of the talents (25:14-30) shows the necessity of using well what God has entrusted to us.  The parable of the sheep and goats (25:31-46) stresses the importance of serving others in need.  No parable by itself completely describes our preparation.  Instead, each presents one part of the whole picture.
