Heroes of the faith – clouds of witnesses

H

Mitch Glaser So, we need to please God with our heart. And there’s a list of people who did that. I call them the ‘heroes of the faith’ and there’s a long list of them. Abraham takes centre stage. Abraham, I guess, had a lot of things happen to him related to faith. What would we do without Abraham? We now know that God could miraculously provide children, we know that God...

The Jewish people and repentance

Mitch Glaser Shalom good morning it’s great to be here. It’s nice to be with you and, thank God we’re all here. You know, that’s a real blessing, isn’t it?

Hebrews 11, The Hall of Heroes – Mitch Glaser

H

I came to faith as a 19-year-old. I was not a good Jewish boy. I was a drug dealer, a hippie, and my hair was all the way down to my back. I was a terrible person you know, but I also was a good middle class Jewish hippie, which meant I knew that, any time I wanted, I could cut my hair, go home, and my parents would put me through college. But I enjoy it, I milked it for as long as I could. I was...

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...
