On Wednesday, February 9th, I gave a talk for for CMJ UK‘s semi-annual online Shofar Event. My talk was entitled,
How Studying Jesus’ Jewishness Saved My Faith
Did the historical Jesus actually claim to be the Messiah and Son of God, or did his later followers dream this up? This question truly worried me until I started studying Jesus’ Jewish context and discovered how he made powerful claims in a sophisticated, subtle Jewish way.
The recording is now available on YouTube for your viewing!
The video begins with an introduction by Rev. Alex Jacob, the CEO of CMJ-UK. CMJ stands for the Church’s Ministry to the Jews, of the Anglican church in the United Kingdom.
CMJ writes: We believe the mandate God has given to us is to be a witness to the Jewish People about the Messiah, and to educate the Church on the Jewish roots of her faith and understanding that God has not finished with Israel. We also believe that God is doing a restorative work between His people, as through Yeshua the dividing walls between us are being broken down.
