Avram Yehoshua was born in Brooklyn, New York on 24 May 1951 and circumcised into the Covenant
of Father Abraham eight days later. When Avram was 24 years old (October 1975), he gave his life to
Messiah Yeshua and he was Born Again and his heart was circumcised (John 3:3, 5; Col. 2:11). Eight
years later, after five years of graduate work (four years in a Master of Divinity program and another
year in Marriage and Family Therapy) he established and led The Seed of Abraham, the first Hebraic
Perspective congregation in Tulsa, OK (1983 to 1999).
During that time, Avram evangelized his Jewish people by sending out, through postal mail, the Jewish
Newsletters. They went to all the Jews in the greater Tulsa metropolitan area and a smattering into
40 states and a few countries. The Jewish Newsletters, of which there are 36 on this website (under
JEWISH NEWSL), explain a passage in the Old Testament and how the ancient Israelis would have
understood it, and then go on to reveal how Yeshua (Jesus) is seen in the midst of it. Avram also
went out into the Jewish community, knocking on (only) Jewish doors, presenting Messiah Yeshua to
his Jewish people. There are many churches in Tulsa, but none evangelized the Jewish people.
Avram has taught more than 500 times, in churches in the USA and Israel, on the holiness of Jesus from
an Old Testament perspective, and on The Hebraic Perspective. From 1991 to 1998 Avram was also a
volunteer chaplain in the Oklahoma prison system. He held worship services at four different facilities
every month (one every week); from the maximum facility at McAlester (Oklahoma State Penitentiary;
i.e. Death Row and its maximum prison), to a minimum facility in Taft, OK (Jess Dunn).
In 1995 the Lord Yeshua led Avram and his wife Ruti to live in Israel for 16 years, where they brought
the Great News about Messiah Yeshua to their Jewish people, on the streets and by-ways of Israel. From
1995-1997 and 1999-2013, Avram and Ruti lived and ministered in Jerusalem, Tiberias (on the Sea of
Galilee), Eilat (the southern-most city in Israel) and Ramat Gan (next to Tel Aviv) and witnessed to thousands
of their Jewish people about Yeshua–the Messiah of Israel. (While in Eilat, Avram held worship
services and Bible studies in his apartment, and also pastored a congregation of believers from India, and
helped to pastor a congregation of believers from Nigeria.)
In April 2013, Avram and Ruti were arrested by the Israeli authorities in Ramat Gan, imprisoned for ten
days and deported from Israel because of their faith and love for Messiah Yeshua and their Jewish people.
You can read about it in SAM THE ROCK THROWER (below).
From April 2013 to September 2014 the Lord led Avram (and Ruti) to travel around the USA by car,
ministering in churches and home fellowships in about 35 states. In May 2015 the Lord led them to
rent an apartment in San Diego, CA, where they have begun a Bible study/worship service, hoping that
it will grow into a congregation. They are seeking the Lord as to where He wants them after San Diego.
If you would like for Avram to bring a message on the holiness of Messiah Yeshua and/or a teaching on
The Hebraic Perspective, and/or a teaching on his time in Israel, contact him at email@example.com.
Messiah Yeshua has called and trained Avram in two primary areas: teaching His Body about its ancient
Hebraic heritage and proclaiming the Great News about Yeshua to Jews and Gentiles. This two-fold
ministry is reflected in the articles, books and CDs on this website.
Avram also trains and ordains men to begin branch congregations of The Seed of Abraham in their
communities as pastors, as well as teachers and evangelists. If you feel led to seek ordination
in any of those positions, or just want more information, see The Ordination Process here. Currently
(March 2016) there are 17 men in the ordination process.
Avram also teaches The Hebraic Perspective via email. If you have any biblical questions you would like
to discuss regarding the articles on this website, please feel free to contact him.
Avram has written two books; SAM THE ROCK THROWER and The Lifting of the Veil—Acts
15:20-21. In Israel Avram witnessed to thousands of Israelis in personal evangelism, one of whom was
SAM, who almost killed Avram. Not every time of witnessing was that life threatening, but all of them
were very special. SAM THE ROCK THROWER is a treasure chest of witnessing and biblical insights
on Scripture. Avram also weaves his testimony throughout his times of witnessing, which makes it very
rewarding because we see a man who is totally dedicated and surrendered to Yeshua, on his Journey into
the Lord’s Refining Fire (Zech. 13:9; Mal. 3:3).

The Lifting of the Veil is truly a 'must read' for properly understanding Scripture and how Yeshua
wants every Christian to walk out their faith in Him (1st John 2:6). The Church, interpreting the four
rules of James (v. 20) as table fellowship, completely misses God’s point. Understood from The Hebraic Perspective the four rules form a conceptual unit on sacrificial sexual idolatry, an all-to-common
practice in the ancient pagan world. James was concerned that Jesus would just be 'added' to a Gentile's pantheon and he would continue to believe in, and worship Diana and Zeus, etc. The four rules acted as
a spiritual filter, revealing whether Gentile faith in Yeshua was genuine or not, because Yeshua, as we
know, doesn't countenance competitors. These four rules, then, were the first of many (Mosaic) laws,
and not 'the only rules' that the Gentile was expected to observe 'for table fellowship.' They were
given because of their primary importance, specifically in relation to Gentile salvation. This forms
the New Testament's theological foundation, after the resurrection, that establishes Mosaic Law for
every Christian because immediately after these four are presented, James speaks of the Gentile
going to the synagogue, on the Sabbath day, to learn the rest of the laws of Moses (i.e. Mosaic Law; v. 21).

Since the year 2000 we have given more than $180,000 to Israelis in need of love, food, clothing, Bibles and electric, etc., both to believers and yet-to-be believers.
In July 2012 the Lord led us to begin helping what has now become six Kenyan pastor/caretakers, in six
different villages, who have more than 100 orphans under their care. Since 2012 we have sent them more
than $30,000 for food and clothing. Avram also teaches these pastors The Hebraic Perspective, and they
teach it to their own children, their orphans, their congregants and other Kenyans—to the glory of
Messiah Yeshua! We are seeking to dig wells for clean water and to build shelters/homes for the
orphans (as they live in the homes of the pastors), and to raise up an Army of Orphans for Messiah
Yeshua that will bring Kenya to Him and His Hebraic Perspective.
If you would like to thank Avram for his teachings and/or to help him reach out to Jews and Gentiles with
the Great News of Messiah Yeshua and The Hebraic Perspective, and/or to send funds to needy Israelis
and our 100 plus orphans in Kenya, you can send a donation through PayPal.
