The Resurrection and the Jewish Messiah

T

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...

Should Jesus be shared with Jewish people?

S

Christianity may have been intended to be good news but has been bad news to Jewish people and, sadly, one must look at the history of official Christianity, Roman Catholicism, Russian Orthodox Christians, and all denominations of the church which have consistently pressed and persecuted the Jewish people in the name of Jesus.By about the time you get to the 4th century, the general idea was that...

Resurrection in Judaism and Christianity

Seeing God – Seeing God while still alive

S

Today we’re going to continue looking at passage in Exodus 24 which I read two or three weeks ago. When I finished the talk on Exodus 24, I referred to a verse which speaks about how the elders of Israel who went up on the mountain with Moses and how they saw God. Some people said to me: ‘Well, isn’t there a contradiction? It says they saw the God of Israel but there are also...

Exodus 24 – The written Word of God

If you’ve been with us for a while, you may know that I was looking at the Book of Exodus and the lessons which we learned from the event of the Jews coming out of Egypt.

Does Jesus teach you not to honour your parents?

Sometimes this causes a bit of trouble and one of the books which I read recently by a Jewish man (Asher Norman) called ’26 reasons why Jews don’t believe in Jesus’ quotes this verse to say that Jesus actually told people to break the Commandments...
