Helpful Resources

Here is a small list of ministry fields we glean from...

Torah Portions

Torah Portions is a ministry resource of First Fruits of Zion intended to make the weekly Torah portion accessible for everyone. We encourage Christians to become familiar with the five books of moses and read along with the messianic jewish world as we all study the bible together throughout the year.

The bible is the Living Word of God, and study of the bible changes people’s lives. Just immersing oneself in God’s Word is sufficient. By committing ourselves to a disciplined, weekly study of God’s Word, we allow the holy spirit to work in our lives and transform our minds.

​You can use Torah portions to track along with the weekly bible readings, listen to the bible read aloud on your computer, or read a short commentary on each week’s Torah portion. It’s your online gateway to the synagogue reading schedule.

Vine of David

Vine of David is a ministry arm of First Fruits of Zion that specializes in early messianic judaism and the development of messianic liturgical resources.

The mission of Vine of David is to reveal Yeshua as the light to the nations and as the glory of the people of Israel. Whereas First Fruits of Zion focuses primarily on proclaiming the Torah and its way of life, Vine of David’s efforts are focused on the argument for Yeshua as the Messiah of Israel and the creation of resources for the maturing messianic jewish movement.

First Fruits of Zion 

FFOZ is a part of a prophetic movement of God in which His Spirit is returning his people to a proper biblical foundation rooted in Torah, Israel, and the Messiah. They specialize in the study and teaching of scripture from its historical, linguistic, and cultural context. FFOZ uses the latest scholarship, ancient jewish sources, and extra-biblical literature to present a messianic jewish reading of the Bible and early jewish-christianity. They are guided by sound scholarship and driven by a heart for the restoration of the Body of Messiah.

Torah Class

Torah is the Hebrew word for the first 5 books of the Bible and it is the foundation of the Old Testament just as the Old Testament is the foundation of the New. The Old Testament (Tanach) is the Holy Scripture that Jesus (Yeshua, in Hebrew) taught from, and His Disciples referred to, since there was no New Testament until well after the time of the Apostles that succeeded Him. The Old and New Testaments are inseparable and only when used together do we have a complete, unified, divinely-inspired Bible. Torah Class cross-references the Torah and Old Testament passages with New Testament passages to reveal their seamless continuity. is the recognized premier online source for Old Testament bible studies and scripture research for Christians, Messianic Jews, and all seekers of truth.
