Shalom!

If you're a Christian or a Messianic, you know this is a challenging time. We live in a fast-changing society, one that is increasingly hostile to Biblical belief. And yet, we also live in an amazing time when we see prophecy being fulfilled before our eyes, science has actually confirmed that we live in a supernatural universe, and the good news of Yeshua the Messiah (Jesus Christ) is being proclaimed in every nation around the world. 

This isn't a time for despair, or to hide in a hole in the ground--it's a time to be excited! It's also a time to be educated!

Since 2010, I've written and produced The Return of Benjamin, a blog that has explored faith, science, and society from a Messianic Jewish perspective. I've also spent several years as a recurring guest on The Iron Show, providing reverent Biblical commentary and irreverent social commentary alongside the much-beloved Johnny McMahon. Late last year, when Johnny decided to take a sabbatical, I created The Last Trump Podcast, which has generated a surprisingly encouraging fan base. Unfortunately, changes in career and the needs of my family have caused my productivity to drop drastically over the last year. I want to reverse that.

That's where you come in. For just a few dollars a month, you can become a patron and partner to a growing ministry which embraces Biblical inerrancy and authority, but which isn't afraid to say that need to rethink many of our assumptions when we approach God's Word. 

I've long been loathe to ask for donations, preferring to have a "tent-making" ministry, but due to changing circumstances and the need to care for my family (or at least not drain the family coffers to buy the research material I frequently need), I'm asking for you to support this effort with just a few dollars a month. I'm offering early access to new articles, monthly Skype sessions where you can engage me directly with your questions (or arguments), and even a look into the drafts of an upcoming book that I am currently working on!

Thank you very much in advance for your consideration and support.

Shalom uv'rekhah m'ach Yeshua HaMashiach
Peace and blessings from a brother in Yeshua the Messiah
Tiers
Talmidim (Discipleship)
$3 or more per month 0 patrons
You're not only donating to a good cause, you'll get to see posts two days before anyone else.
Chevurot (Fellowship)
$10 or more per month 1 patron
In addition to the early access of the Talmidim, starting June 13th I will conduct a live Skype session with all donors of $10/month or more on the second Tuesday of each month. This is your chance to ask your questions and question doctrine! And if you ask a question that I can't answer sufficiently then and there, you'll get first dibs on a carefully-researched and even footnoted article on your issue along with full credit in the blog.
Achim (Brotherhood)

In addition to the rewards for the previous tiers, you'll have exclusive access to early drafts of my upcoming books, as well as free pdf and/or ebook versions of the finished volumes after publication.
Goals
$9 of $500 per month
For our first goal, if we can raise $500 a month, I will be able to consistently produce two well-thought-out posts a week, perhaps more.
