Jesus offends – Kosher food


Moving on, we find that, in this passage, in Matthew 15, the disciples come and tell Jesus that He has offended the Pharisees. 7 Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying: 8 ‘These people draw near to Me with their mouth,And honour Me with their lips,But their heart is far from Me.9 And in vain they worship Me,Teaching as doctrines the...

What is the Kingdom of God?


7 “I will declare the decree:The Lord has said to Me,‘You are My Son,Today I have begotten You.8 Ask of Me, and I will give YouThe nations for Your inheritance,And the ends of the earth for Your possession.9 You shall break them with a rod of iron;You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’” Psalm 2.7-9

Sunday Services – July 16, 2023


We believe it is vital for Christians to love and support the Jewish people. God still loves his chosen people and has incredible plans for them. That’s what drives Friends of Israel (FOI)’s ministry in the UK. Centered in the greater London area, FOI UK seeks to show the love of Messiah Jesus to Jewish people through acts of service, advocating for Jewish communities, standing against...

Who is God to you?


Trevor Stewart-Sweet Isaiah begins by declaring in verse 1, he says, O Lord, You are my God.I will exalt You,I will praise Your name,For You have done wonderful things;Your counsels of old are faithfulness and truth. Isaiah 25.1 Isaiah begins by acknowledging that the Lord is his God. The Lord, as he puts it, is my God, the only God whom Isaiah exalts...

Alternative Jewish attitudes to the Resurrection


This morning I was speaking about the Gospel from the resurrection from John’s point of view and one of the things we saw is that Jesus rose from the dead and that He was seen first of all by the women who were much more faithful and zealous to seek the Lord at this time in the morning. And I suggested that the men, the disciples, had actually fled, most likely to Bethany, when Jesus was...

Psalm 22 – Dissecting the Messianic prophecy of Jesus


Now, let’s have a look at how Psalm 22 connects to Jesus / to Yeshua. The most obvious connection is the very first verse of the psalm: My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me? Psalm 22.1 Jesus words from the cross, My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me? Why did Jesus use those words? Psalms Bible Timeline ( One point you could make is that, when Jesus said those words, He...

Who is ‘The Servant’ in Isaiah chapters 40 to 53?


There are four passages which speak about not just ‘a nation (Israel) as a servant’ but also about a person who will be ‘the servant to the servant nation’. A servant who will bring them to the true knowledge of God. And, in this section here, we’ve had God introducing that person as His servant, and we believe, as believers in Jesus, that this servant is going to be revealed some 700 years...

What did Jesus do before He came to earth?


This talk came out of a discussion Tony Pearce had with Jehovah’s Witnesses. Before He came to earth was Jesus the eternal uncreated Son of God, equal with the Father and the Holy Spirit? Or was he a second in command, created being, who before coming to earth was the Archangel Michael? Join us in a fascinating journey through the scriptures, showing that the Lord Jesus is God from eternity...

Jerusalem taxi


I wasn’t here last week, I was in Jerusalem. Which, I have to say, is better. But it’s good to be here nevertheless. This time last week we were at Christchurch Jerusalem where we managed to get into the evening service. It is a very nice Anglican Church in the heart of the Old City of Jerusalem which really preaches the Gospel and has a heart for Israel. Welcome to Christ Church...
