Mishkan Logo“The View from the Mishkan” offers a Messianic Perspective from David Negley, who has been part of the Messianic community since 1981. Some of the programs will be topical discussions, and some will be based on particular Bible texts. Right now, we are working through the “Besorah of Mattityahu” (you might know this better as “The Gospel of Matthew”).  In this study, we are highlighting the numerous Jewish features employed by the author, including the use of gematria and other forms of rabbinic commentary, as well as the tremendous emphasis on the House of David and its role in the Messianic Expectation.

Some of what we share will be affirming, and some of it will challenge your most dearly held views. Be sure to set this time aside each Tuesday at

  • 8:00 PM Eastern
  • 7:00 PM Central
  • 6:00 PM Mountain
  • 5:00 PM Pacific

You’ll be thrilled, challenged, inspired, and occasionally irritated… all at the same time!

Ani Ma'amin (I Believe)

Anti-missionary Defense, Part 4

Many of you may be aware that, since August 2014, I have been doing a radio show called, “The View from the Mishkan”. The primary topic of the program has been the “Besorah of Mattityahu” (“Gospel of Matthew”).

During the month of January 2015, I have taken some time off from Mattityahu, and created a short mini-series on the significance of Talmudic knowledge in order to defend against some of the arguments presented to challenge our Messianic faith.

In this fourth and final episode, we continue to emphasize the need to credit the sages of the Babylonian exile with defining the office of mashiach, while also providing responses to some of the standard anti-missionary challenges.

Anti-missionary Defense, Part 3

Many of you may be aware that, since August 2014, I have been doing a radio show called, “The View from the Mishkan”. The primary topic of the program has been the “Besorah of Mattiryahu” (“Gospel of Matthew”).

During the month of January 2015, I have taken some time off from Mattityahu, and created a short mini-series on the significance of Talmudic knowledge in order to defend against some of the arguments presented to challenge our Messianic faith.

In this third episode, we continue to emphasize the need to credit the sages of the Babylonian exile with defining the office of mashiach. Whatever we may like to think about getting all our support directly from Scripture, the fact is, Yeshua operated within a framework defined by the sages of Israel. We also offer specific responses to some of the standard anti-missionary challenges.

Anti-missionary Defense, Part 2

Many of you may be aware that, since August 2014, I have been doing a radio show called, “The View from the Mishkan”. The primary topic of the program has been the “Besorah of Mattiryahu” (“Gospel of Matthew”).

During the month of January 2015, I have taken some time off from Mattityahu, and created a short mini-series on the significance of Talmudic knowledge in order to defend against some of the arguments presented to challenge our Messianic faith.

In this second episode, we continue to emphasize the need to credit the sages of the Babylonian exile with defining the office of mashiach. Whatever we may like to think about getting all our support directly from Scripture, the fact is, Yeshua operated within a framework defined by the sages of Israel. Once we accept that fact of history, much of the modern anti-missionary argument against Yeshua is de-fanged and de-clawed.

So, we continue the series on strengthening the foundations of our faith in Messiah Yeshua. Give it a listen, and see what I mean! And stay tuned for coming episodes in this series…

Anti-missionary Defense, Part 1

Many of you may be aware that, since August 2014, I have been doing a radio show called, “The View from the Mishkan”. The primary topic of the program has been the “Besorah of Mattiryahu” (“Gospel of Matthew”).

During the month of January 2015, I have taken some time off from Mattityahu, and created a short mini-series on the significance of Talmudic knowledge in order to defend against some of the arguments presented to challenge our Messianic faith.

In this opening episode, we start off by affirming the need to credit the sages of the Babylonian exile with defining the office of mashiach. Whatever we may like to think about getting all our support directly from Scripture, the fact is, Yeshua operated within a framework defined by the sages of Israel. Once we accept that fact of history, much of the modern anti-missionary argument against Yeshua is de-fanged and de-clawed.

So, this is the introduction to the series on strengthening the foundations of our faith in Messiah Yeshua. Give it a listen, and see what I mean! And stay tuned for coming episodes in this series…

Hanukkah

Hanukkah, a Time for Reflection

I would never regard myself as a master of the Talmud. That would require far more time and dedication than I possess. But I do like to read through certain sections from time to time. Occasionally, I find that the same passage keeps popping up in different areas of my life. When that happens, I like to step back and consider what Hashem may be trying to show me through that passage. Continue reading Hanukkah 2014

Hannah and Her Seven Sons

Shabbat shalom, and Hanukkah Sameach!

It has been a good week of celebrating dedication and resurrection at the Mishkan. And we still have half the festival to go!

This year, we have been focusing our thoughts on the story of “Hannah and Her Seven Sons“. Knowing that those horrific events went on only 160 years prior to Yeshua, it is amazing that people so readily think Yeshua set aside the Torah. Continue reading Hannah and Her Seven Sons
