Perspective on Christmas as Jewish Believer: "Messiah Mas"

A Jewish believer’s perspective on Christmas

"Do not be afraid, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ (Messiah) the Lord." (Luke 2:8-10)

I have been invited to share my perspective on Christmas from a Jewish background. I hope it will both encourage and inspire all those who take the time to read and consider these thoughts.

No other birth has stirred as much controversy nor has evoked as much praise.

Revisiting the Passion of the Christ as Jewish Disciple

Reflections on Messiah's suffering from my perspective as a Jewish disciple

Having just come back from seeing the film The Passion of the Christ, I was moved to write down the following thoughts. The film is powerful and a remarkable achievement on several levels. It’s a realistic depiction of the final hours of Jesus life. We are transported to Jerusalem from the Garden of Gethsemane into the court of the Jewish Sanhedrin and into the courtyard of Pontius Pilate and ultimately to Golgotha.

The Geneologies of Jesus in Matthew and Luke

Messiah's Ancestry: A Family Tree with Several Surprises

For the past several years I have been working on a book focusing on Messianic prophecies. Applying Messianic statements in the Torah, the Prophets, and the Psalms to Jesus is an exciting faith building study. The fulfillments provide overwhelming conclusive evidence that Yeshua of Nazareth -“He who saves” - is the number one and only candidate for the promised Jewish Messiah.

Shavout - Birthday of the Church

The Jewish holiday of Shavuot begins sundown Sunday night May 27, 2012. Jews around the world welcome this time which is also referred to as the “Feast of weeks”, “Pentecost” or “Season of the giving of the law”. It derives its name from the fact that it was to occur exactly 7 weeks from the Sabbath day after Passover. Many disciples do not realize the tremendous significance of this holiday and even fewer understand its correlation with the beginning of the church as described in the second chapter of Acts.

The Day Christ Died - Historical Reflection April 7, 30 A.D.

Two events within recorded human history tower like mountains over all others. One is the death of Jesus Christ. The other is his resurrection. That God would become man, allow his own subjects to kill him, and then translate that event into the gateway of their salvation has to be the most astonishing story ever told. From Christianity.com

This Day in History - 1525: Hundreds Re-Baptized

When Conrad Grebel arrived at St. Gall Switzerland, on this day March 25, 1525, he began to speak on the need for repentance and baptism. Hundreds turned out to hear him preach and over the next few months, he baptized five hundred. What was significant about this was that most of them had already been baptized as infants.
