In this session we will discover the meaning of being sent by exploring the ancient custom of agency. The agent was regarded as one with the sender, thus commanding the same power and authority to act on the sender’s behalf. This concept will become important when we consider, in a later session, how Yeshua is sending his disciples.

We all know about the future Kingdom of God when God’s people will come into His presence in righteousness. However, the NT parables are directed to disciples and encourage them to walk in righteousness now. The repetitive phrase, “The Kingdom of God [Heaven] is like” encourages us to walk in the ways of the Kingdom now as a witness of God.

Textual criticism is a scholarly field of study that examines biblical texts that were composed over a period of time. These texts were hand-copied and were susceptible to scribal error. By comparing later texts with earlier texts these scholars can identify scribal errors and intentional additions to uncover the most likely original.

Israel’s inheritance is not “salvation” (a Christian concept), but a special inheritance of leadership known as the birthright. However, each individual must exhibit characteristics of leadership or God will remove the birthright for unworthy behavior. However, all the children of Israel, whether they inherit the birthright or not, still belong to God.

God is making a selection out of Israel as to who is worthy to inherit the birthright, which is a special role of leadership. This selection process has nothing to do with “who will be saved.” All the children of Israel belong to God. However, those who inherit the birthright are called a “remnant,” and they have a special role to play in God’s great Plan of Redemption.
