From the beginning of time, the Torah (literally, God’s “instruction”) has provided a window for man to look into the heart and mind of his Creator. Historically, the word Torah has been used to refer to the first five books of the Bible (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy). But Torah isn’t limited to just five books; it encompasses the entirety of God’s divine instruction throughout the “Old Testament.” Unfortunately, when most people hear the word Torah they immediately think “law,” which evokes a negative response. But God’s instruction leads to life! Let us help you learn what God’s Torah really is and what it actually says. We want you to experience the Torah as God’s eternal instruction and revelation for humanity. When you encounter His word, His will, and His way from a truly Torah-oriented perspective, it will enrich and change your life forever!
Something wonderful is happening in our generation! More and more people are returning to the pages of an ancient book that continues to have profound meaning in our modern times. Even though this book has been banned, burned, and even barricaded inside vaults, its message is still reaching the hearts and minds of people around the globe.

After having an epiphany of sorts, I determined that I needed to find a way to share some important information, inspiration, and even a bit of revelation regarding the Book with our international community and I also wanted it to be a face-to-face encounter.

How can we know what is important to God? Wouldn’t it be convenient if he had given us a list of matters that really matter to him? Actually, he has given us just such a list, though it is often overlooked in today’s religious, moral, and philosophical debates. That list is commonly known as the Ten Commandments—or more precisely, the “Ten Matters” that still matter to God. In this 10-part Scripture Bytes series we will take a closer look at each one of these key matters, examining history, language, and context to see what God says about what is important to him.

Putting our collective heads together and our hands to work, the BFA International team has created an innovative Bible teaching format called Scripture Bytes—examining “byte-sized” portions of Scripture. We hope you will grab your Bible and your notebook and start digging deeper into the Scriptures today!
In this first program we take a closer look at Isaiah 56:6 and what it means to “join” oneself to the Creator of the Universe. Then we invite listeners to keep reading to find out where in the world God’s “passport from heaven” will take us. If you like what you see, please share it with family and friends! Our aim is to saturate the world with the Word of God.
Should we keep uploading more Scripture Bytes? Let us know in the comment section.
If enough people say "Keep Uploading" then check back here for a brand new Scripture Byte. Be sure to register as a free member to comment and to download the companion PDF Study Guide in the link above.
For more than a decade I have been asked a plethora of questions and given plenty of replies that I now wish I would have archived somewhere. Though many of these print, radio, and television interviews are floating around the internet, and some are even available at BFAInternational.com, I want to begin corralling them into one convenient place for our Academy members. Introducing: Q&A with Keith! As long as the questions don't get too tough we will keep them from getting lost in cyberspace. Continue reading “Q&A with Keith” »
After launching the 14-episode Scripture Bytes video series we have had many people ask if BFA could provide a biblical Hebrew course. I have to admit it is not an easy request to fulfill. Yet at the same time I am convinced it is the right thing to do because it is in line with the BFA International mission: Inspiring people around the world to build a biblical foundation for their faith.
As we progress, you will learn consonants, vowels, and basic grammar, but only as they apply to reading the selected biblical passage. By the end of the first lesson you will have read and understood a biblical verse in Hebrew. Guaranteed!

It was 15 years ago when I first heard about Eliezer Ben-Yehuda, the man who took on the task of bringing spoken Hebrew back to Israel after a 2,000-year period of hibernation. Now, to hear the full story through the living legacy of his grandson, Rabbi Eliezer Ben-Yehuda, is simply amazing. CBN has done a
During an exploratory interview with Rabbi Eliezer Ben-Yehuda, Rich and Margaret Pogin, hosts of the Reclaiming the Real Hanukkah project, were encouraged by the common ground they found with Rabbi Eliezer within the pages of the Book.
I need to confess something before you watch this presentation. For the last several years I have been troubled by preachers in pulpits who proclaim misinformation about the Book. In this 2½-hour presentation, I lay out answers to the “six universal questions” about the Book: who, what, when, where, why, and how. As an Academy
I was honored to sit down for an interview with Luke and Kayte Abaffy, creators of an intriguing documentary called The Way. They traveled around the United States and interviewed 18 experts on topics like church history, the origins of Christian holidays, believers returning to Torah, finding like-minded believers, sharing the faith, and more. The
