In this week's Torah Portion Christopher discusses Numbers 19:2 in terms of the chukas (chukar for the sefardi) and what classifies a law as chukas, as opposed to mishpatim and mitzvos. Christopher discusses what Rebbe Nachman says on the subject as well as Rashi, the Rambam, Mayim Chayim, and the Ohr HaChayim. He then discusses this in relation to the ideal of Yeshua "definitely" being the Red Heifer in Numbers 19:2, and discusses how many jump to the assumption that he is and yet however it is not diligent scholarship in relation to what classifies a law as chuk and how this takes issue with the book of Hebrews when it say that Yeshua is Kohen HaGadol and how the red heifer had to be "burnt to ashes".
These teachings are by Christopher Fredrickson and air on several Christian radio stations as well as Lapid Judaism Radio. In Brutal Planet, Christopher discusses the ties of the New Testament with Rabbinic Judaism.
