SORT BY Relevancy
"A Prophesy of Jesus in a Jewish Book"
Years ago, I talked with a rabbi about Isaiah chapter 53, when I mentioned that that chapter seemed to be speaking of Jesus of Nazareth prophetically. I remember the rabbi's response: "After 2000 years, what difference does it really make?" At the time, I had had no response, but what I THOUGHT of saying was "Well, for one thing, it means we've been WRONG for 2000 years about the messiah." But being raised Jewish, I wouldn't have talked back to a rabbi like that. This Thursday, we'll review the Book of Isaiah, especially chapter 53, and answer that question "What difference DOES it really make?", especially to the Jewish community, which still considers Isaiah as their prophet.

The Book of Isaiah is one of the longest books in the Hebrew canon of Scripture - all 66 chapters of it. Though the Synagogue has denied for nearly 2000 years, that Jesus of Nazareth is mentioned or even remotely referred to in this or in any section of the Hebrew Scriptures, that claim can be challenged, specifically from the 52nd and 53rd chapters. Why does it matter?
"The Synagogue in Christian Society: 2000 Years"
Since the days of Christ and the apostles, church-vs-synagogue relations have been anything but good. What started as a movement within Judaism became a separate movement all its own. The hostility was compounded by the synagogue's reaction to what it regarded as a heretical sect. The church responded with an over-reaction all its own. The rancor increased over centuries, and as the church became mainstream in formerly pagan society, the Old Testament "People of the Book" were increasingly marginalized and persecuted. In the midst of all this, and DESPITE it all, many Jewish people came to believe that Jesus of Nazareth was indeed the promised Messiah of Scripture. This Thursday we look at it all more closely in the first of a 5-part series. Tune in and take notes! Your host, Rev. Rick Anderson on "Jewish Roots", each Thursday at 9:30 pm EDT.

The Handwriting On the Wall
Talk to 5 people on the street and ask them what the phrase "The Handwriting On the Wall" means. They'll have some idea because it's become part of American colloquialism. But ask them where its from or what the original context was, and they won't be able to tell you. This Thursday, we'll deal with what the phrase really means, and it's historic context when first spoken: when the prophet Daniel was summoned before the last Babylonian emperor Beshazzar, who was so frightened by what he saw that his knees knocked together convulsively.

Why Blame God?
It's the seamy little secret of the Christian life: that we blame God when things go wrong. Not all of us maybe, but some of us sometimes. And by "us", I'm talking about Christians. They're the ones who aren't supposed to have this problem. But they do, and even the best of us wonder about the goodness and care of our Heavenly Father at times. Other people have that problem too. For example, take the Jews with the Holocaust: the Jewish community-at-large still wonders how an all-powerful God who's supposed to be good can allow so much evil in the world.

Christ in the Passover
"The Last Supper", that famous painting by Leonardo Da Vinci, shows Christ and the disciples eating a meal at a long table in straight-backed chairs. But most Christians aren't aware that they didn't just sit down and have a supper. Oh no! This was a Seder. Our Jewish friends could tell us a thing or two about Seders. This was a specialized ritual meal, eaten every year at Passover, commemorating the exodus from Egypt. A lot of Christians don't even know that their communion "bread and wine" came right from this Seder's observance. And another thing: those disciples? They didn't sit on straight-backed chairs, either. This Thursday night, we'll look at what actually happened at that "Last Supper". It's a fascinating slice of history and culture that few realize.

The Argument: Covenantal or Dispensational?
Switch on almost any Christian TV or radio broadcast, buy almost any Christian book dealing with the Last Days, and what you'll hear is a viewpoint called "Premillenial dispensationalism". Popularized and taught at many American seminaries today including Dallas Theological Seminary in Texas, it gives a perspective on the Jewish People, the nation of Israel, the Middle East and the Second Coming of Christ that historically the Church has rejected for most of her 2000 years. This Thursday at 9:30 pm, we'll talk about WHY that's been so. Tune in and take notes! Your host, Rev. Rick Anderson on "Jewish Roots" a podcasted radio talk show.

The Trinity Doctrine in the Hebrew Scriptures
Christians claim that God is both a Unity and a "Trinity": This makes absolutely no sense to either Muslims or Jews. In fact SEEMS to violate a law of logic called "The Law of Non-Contradiction": that a thing cannot be "A" and "non-A" at the same time. This Thursday at 9:30 pm on "Jewish Roots" we put this Trinity doctrine to the test. Where did the Church get it from? Roman Catholic tradition? A biblical corruption in translation that the Qur'an has since corrected? Or a fanciful New Testament leap of faith that has no basis is Jewish thought? Tune in and take notes! Your host: Rev.

"The voice of thy brother's blood CRIETH unto Me from the ground," God said to Cain. This is the first instance in history of the shedding of innocent blood. What does that mean for us today? Just Old Testament history from a barbaric and by-gone era? Or is it as relevant as modern man's concern for the environment, the protection of the earth, and what Scripture means by earth's "pollution"? Tune in and take notes! Your host: Rev.
