KIB 51 – An Interview with Dr. John Garr
Kingdom Intelligence Briefing Podcast
In this episode, Dr. Lake interviews scholar, prolific author, and Biblical Life Alumnus, Dr. John Garr. Dr. Garr is the author of over 14 books that bring scholarship and balance to the understanding of our Hebraic Heritage. This life-filled discuss surrounds two of Dr. Garr’s newest books: Family Worship: Turning Your Home into a House of God, and Christian Fruit – Jewish Roots. Dr. Lake believes that both of these books have a prophetic significance touching on the needs on the Body of Messiah in our day!
Family Worship offers solid solutions to the increasingly dysfunctional family in today’s secularized society, and it provides constructive suggestions to those who want to reestablish their homes on biblical foundations.
The Hebraic foundations of the Christian faith establish the home as a small temple. This insight dramatically changes the dynamics of the home for those who believe in the God of the Bible and in his will for their lives.
The Christian family was always designed by God to be the center for social, educational, and spiritual growth and maturity—a place of fellowship, study, and prayer. Now, you, too, can experience these same powerful dynamics that made the home the center of sanctity and security that is was for the biblical peoples.
Family Worship presents these vivid images of a rich biblically Hebraic tradition for Christians today:
- The Domestic Temple
- The Domestic Church
- Temple of Blessing
- House of Prayer
- The Family Altar
- The Domestic Priesthood
- Temples in Time
- A House of Study
As you read this book, you’ll be amazed at how your own family life will be revolutionized and enriched simply by restoring biblically Hebraic dynamics to your home.
Christian Fruit–Jewish Root is an in-depth, scholarly examination of the Hebraic foundations of the major tenets and practices of Christianity. This volume confirms the truth that the inherent Jewishness of the Christian faith is simply an undeniable historical and theological fact. By evaluating Christian doctrine and polity through the Jewish mindset of Jesus and the apostles, this book uncovers a veritable treasure of Hebraic truth.
For every authentic Christian fruit, there is a Jewish root! See this truth demonstrated across a wide spectrum of theological truth, including: Christianity owes a profound debt of gratitude to the Jewish people and to biblical and Second Temple Judaism for the foundations of the truths and practices that it holds dear. As you read this challenging, informative, and inspirational book, you will be amazed at just how Jewish Christianity, the “other Jewish religion,” actually is!

When I came out of the church and into the Truth of Torah I reelizad that I needed to Mikvah. At the time I did not understand or know the term Mikvah, I still knew it as baptism. Not knowing anyone who was Torah observant in my area, I was somewhat stuck. For two weeks I fretted over the fact that I knew I needed to be immersed in the name of Yeshuah. Then one day (happened to be my birthday) a very strong conviction came over me to be immersed. So I drove myself to the lake and I immersed myself in the name of Yeshuah. Not knowing anything about the biblical way to do it I went straight down making sure all of me was cleansed from my sin of disobedience. However, I was not naked hmmm.This past Sukkot I came to realize that I should Mikvah after my uncleanliness each month. That being the eighth after the flow has stopped. There is a Mikvah in my city at the Synagogue. I called to inquire and the first question was, Are you Jewish? I answered, Not exactly. I am a God fearer who desires to keep the commandment of Mikvah. The reply was, You do not need to it does not apply to you. Long story short, I was given the number of the Rabbi and told to talk to him about it. I never did. I was so disappointed because I desire to keep this Torah commandment. Maybe I will call the rabbi couldn’t hurt.Thank you for posting this teaching Rico.
