Jesus’ Jewishness Leads an American Jew to Messiah!

Hi everyone!  I am continually amazed at God’s timing of things!  If you follow, you know I’m currently teaching through a study called Why Israel Matters. During the live lesson this morning, part of the focus was the Jewishness of Jesus.  (ie – Jesus was circumcised on the eighth day, was presented at the Temple as the first born, taught in the synagogues, observed the feasts and was ultimately crucified as “King of the Jews.”)

Likewise, Paul, other New Testament writers, the apostles and the first followers of Jesus were all Jews.  We have a Jewish Bible, filled with Jewish characters!

By God’s divine timing, I just saw the testimony below of a Jewish man who, upon seeing the “Jewishness” of the Bible, met the Messiah!  I just love it when God does this!

So, enjoy…

BTW – follow the summaries of each lesson here on this blog, or join us live at CavlaryPHX (Phoenix AZ) each Sunday morning at 11 am in Room 209. (Directions and more info.)

Can a Jew Believe in Jesus?

That’s a good question.  But one that has very different answers, depending upon who you ask!  If the question is posed to  Jewish rabbi, you might get an answer such as: “A Jew can believe in Jesus, in the same way that a vegetarian can enjoy a steak” 

But, as we have studied this past week, salvation is from the Jews and it requires belief (faith) in Jesus the Messiah!

So, to remain on the theme of our study this week, I commend One for Israel’s article:

We Can’t be a Jew and Believe in Jesus?  Oh Really!?!

Enjoy…and shabbat shalom!

When Jew-Hating Muslims Come to Messiah

Happy Lord’s Day, dear friends!  I want to share a short, heartwarming article with you today.  It is a story about a once-radical-jihadist coming to Messiah and meeting a Messianic Jewish person.  It is a powerful story of how God can change a hateful heart into one of Christian love.  Enjoy!

What Happens when a Muslim who Hated Jews Comes to Faith in Jesus?

Historic Sign of the Times: Jews Coming to Yeshua!

For I will set My eyes on them for good, and I will bring them again to this land; and I will build them up and not overthrow them, and I will plant them and not pluck them up. I will give them a heart to know Me, for I am the Lord; and they will be My people, and I will be their God, for they will return to Me with their whole heart.
~Jeremiah 24:6-7

Prophecy being fulfilled!  May the Prince of Peace be welcomed in the hearts of His people!
