Product Description

Product Description

The Mishnah tractate Pirkei Avot or Sayings of the Fathers is a compilation of wise sayings, proverbs, and anecdotes dating from the Third Century B.C.E.-Third Century C.E., forming much of the basis of ancient Jewish ethics. Many important parallels can be seen between remarks made in the Pirkei Avot and the wisdom sayings or teachings of Yeshua the Messiah, James the Just, and the Apostles Peter and Paul. In the Jewish community today, the Pirkei Avot are traditionally read and considered during the seven weeks between the festivals of Passover and Shavuot.

Sayings of the Fathers: A Messianic Perspective on Pirkei Avot takes readers through not just one, but two years of fifty-day reflections, and six bonus days, of some of the ancient wisdom seen in this valuable text. You will not only be introduced to some of the key views present in the Apostolic period, but also be able to weigh the value that the Jewish Sages have in your own personal study and reflection upon the Holy Scriptures. Be prepared to join into an ancient discussion that spans the ages as you reflect on these words. Be blessed as your faith and outlook on the world are enriched, and you have more to take to your Heavenly Father in prayer!

More About the Author

William Mark Huey is the founder and director of Outreach Israel Ministries. Mark became a Believer in the Messiah of Israel in 1978, but it was a Zola Levitt tour to Israel in 1994 with his wife that sparked an ardent search for answers about the Hebraic Roots of our faith. By 2002, after years of exposure to tangible evidence that the prophesied "Restoration of All Things" (Acts 3:21) was becoming a reality, the impetus to focus energy and attention on Israel, the people, the Land, and Torah-centered Messianic teachings merged together. The outcome was the formation of Outreach Israel Ministries. For years, Mark has had a fervent interest in Torah study. His "TorahScope" commentaries are e-mailed to those every week who are looking for a Messianic perspective on the weekly portions. Mark has also written TorahScope, Volumes I&II, TorahScope Haftarah Exhortations, TorahScope Apostolic Scriptures Reflections, and Counting the Omer: A Daily Devotional Toward Shavuot. Mark is a graduate of Vanderbilt University with a B.A. in history, with graduate studies toward a master's degree in aviation management completed at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
