SORT BY Relevancy
Today on RTR, we will be talking about the liturgy, or in other words, the "order of service". Have you noticed that if you go to any church, you will more than likely see the same order of service? From prayer, to singing, to the sermon, to the offering, to the altar call. With a few variations, thrown in here and there, they are all the same. Have you ever thought about where the order of service came from? Why do we have church the way we do, and do the things that we do in church? Where did the order come from? How did it get started, and why do we continue to do them? Is anything wrong with having an order or service? Just how strong are our liturgical traditions? Join us on RTR this and every Sunday at 10am est as we break talk about The Order of Service. Call 661 449 9951 to join the conversation or just listen live.

"The Synagogue in Christian Society: Part 2"
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 called a heretical sect. The Church responded with over-reaction. 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 Jews came to believe that Jesus of Nazareth was indeed the promised Messiah. This Thursday we look at it all more closely in the 2nd 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.

From Crusades to Reformation: The Jews in Christian Society
Part 3 of our 5-part series begins with the Church supreme in Europe, yet compromised by gross superstition, a defection from the doctrines of Christ, and an entrenched suspicion and hatred of the Jews. Christian armies march east to free Jerusalem's holy sites from the Muslims, but as they go, they mete out vengeance on the Jews, stirred on by the words of Guibert of Nogent: "We desire combat with the enemies of God in the East, but we have under our eyes the Jews, a race more inimical to God than all the others. We are doing this whole [Crusade] thing backwards." This series attempts to explain the reasons why the Jewish community has seen fit to reject the claims of Jesus as taught by the Church, but explains as well why some have not followed this path.

"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 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.

Dr. Chaps reports on these important issues:
* Israel arrests three Jewish suspects that killed a Palestinian teen.
* Muslims in Iraq are raping Christian women as part of the spoils of war?
* The IRS is forced to pay $50,000 to a Christian ministry.
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.
