The History of Messianic Jews in Israel

( 1 MP3 track, 78 minutes / 74.1 MB )

Pillars, Allies, CompanionsJanuary 18, 2018

Is Messianic Judaism a modern phenomenon? While some say the movement began in the United States in the 1970’s, there is evidence of a corporate presence of Jewish believers in Yeshua in the Land of Israel dating as far back as the mid-nineteenth century. Through a large collection of historic documents and pictures, Dr. Gershon Nerel presents the history of Messianic Jews in Israel. Using personal experiences, anecdotes, and extensive research, Dr. Nerel illustrates how events and decisions along the way helped shape the self-identity of Jewish believers in Yeshua. Taking note of the revolutionary character of the movement, this lecture examines Messianic Judaism’s present situation and that of its future.

When You Have Eaten

( 1 MP3 track / 49 minutes / 36.5 MB )

Pillars, Allies, CompanionsDecember 17, 2017

Grace After Meals in the Didache. The Apostle Paul urges readers of his first letter to Timothy to receive their food with thanksgiving. He is most certainly referring to the Jewish custom to say a blessing before eating and one after. The traditional Grace After Meals prayer in Judaism is beautiful, but there are a few lines that are inappropriate for Messianic Gentiles to recite. That seems to be why the earliest Jewish disciples offer in the Didache an alternate blessing for Gentiles. In When You Have Eaten: Grace After Meals in the Didache, First Fruits of Zion teacher and author Toby Janicki examines the blessing offered in the Didache and introduces a brand new melody by Troy Mitchell for the Didache Grace After Meals. (The full recording of the melody, which can be sung in Hebrew and English, appears at the end of the teaching.)

The Vatican and Replacement Theology

( 1 MP3 track, 42 minutes / 39.3 MB )

Pillars, Allies, CompanionsNovember 16, 2017

In October of 1960, Pope John XIII received Jewish visitors from the group “United Jewish Appeal: Jewish Study Mission.” The pope shared stories of his efforts to rescue Jewish people during World War II and spoke of the spiritual brotherhood shared by Jews and Christians. His words were the beginning of a Catholic theological revolution that is still underway. The Vatican’s acknowledgment of the interdependence between the Old and New Testaments and Jewish interpretation of the Hebrew Scriptures, including rabbinic exegesis as a legitimate mode of interpretation, marks a much needed paradigm shift in the Catholic church.
