In his study of the Bible, including the Torah, our guest, a respected Messianic Rabbi found overwhelming evidence that Jesus of Nazareth really was the Jewish Messiah. With warmth and transparency, he talked about discovering Jesus in history, and how it was that the Jewish Yeshua became the Gentile Jesus. By presenting historic evidence that Jesus is Messiah and refuting common Jewish objections, our guest gives Christians the knowledge and tools needed to share their Lord with their Jewish friends in a loving, effective way.
