Biblical Basis for Religious Zionism

( 1 MP4 track, 40 minutes / 37.8 MB )

Pillars, Allies, CompanionsMay 21, 2018

The nation of Israel declared independence on May 14, 1948. Immediately attacked by her Arab neighbors, Israel set to work protecting herself. God granted his people success and each year great celebrations take place in the land on Iyyar 4, Yom Ha’atzma’ut, Israel Independence Day. The prophecies of the Bible are in motion. The fig tree is blossoming again. God’s chosen people are in their land, and Jerusalem is their capital. First Fruits of Zion Education Director, D. Thomas Lancaster, takes us on a brief journey through the biblical and modern history of the nation of Israel, showing us three premises that establish the biblical basis for religious Zionism.

Radial Ecclesiology

( 1 MP3 track, 48 minutes / 45.3 MB )

Pillars, Allies, CompanionsApril 24, 2018

Just as the word of the LORD will go forth from Jerusalem, radiating to the whole world, the kingdom radiates from our Master Yeshua. One day soon it will encompass the whole world. The apostles of Yeshua considered themselves to be fully within the framework of Judaism. It was not their intent to start something new. Messianic Judaism was their religion and Messianic Judaism will be the religion of the kingdom. Messianic synagogues, Sabbath fellowships, and Sunday churches all look different externally, but they can share the same theology—a theology that centers on Messiah and elevates the Torah, Israel, and Zionism. In Radial Ecclesiology, D. Thomas Lancaster expounds on Messianic Judaism and its hashkafah, or perspective, on the assemblies of the Messiah.

Conversation on Luther

( 1 MP3 track, 50 minutes / 47.0 MB )

Pillars, Allies, CompanionsMarch 20, 2018

In the late Middle Ages, Christians did not consider the Jews to be God’s chosen people but merely reluctant witnesses to truth that the church had discovered. Martin Luther, a product of his time, was anti-Semitic throughout his life. Today, Lutherans struggle with the reality that Luther was responsible, in part, for the horrors of the Holocaust and are seeking reconciliation with the Jewish people.

How can the church show genuine repentance and reconciliation with the Jewish people? Can the Jewish people forgive those who have inherited Martin Luther’s anti-Semitic legacy? Professor and author Dr. Richard Harvey believes Messianic Jews are a bridge between the church and Judaism. Dr. Harvey discusses his new book, Luther and the Jews: Putting Right the Lies, with First Fruits of Zion Director of Outreach, Ryan Lambert.
