S1 EP45 | Gentile Christians – Where Do They Fit in Messianic Judaism

With Special Guest, Travis Snow So, maybe you’re a Christian and thinking, “I’m not Jewish, so, what does Messianic Judaism have to do with me?” Or you might be wondering just the opposite, “Why am I so drawn to the Jewish people and understanding the Jewishness of the Bible?” Well, today’s guest knows both ends of that spectrum. Travis Snow is not your stereotypical Messianic ministry leader. For one, he’s a Gentile. And two, he’s a millennial, younger than most leaders in the field of Messianic Judaism today. Travis is the founder of Voice of Messiah Ministries, an outreach and teaching ministry to both Jew and Gentile. In this episode of A Jew and A Gentile Discuss, Carly and Ezra talk with Travis about his testimony of coming to faith in Jesus and the journey that led him into Messianic Judaism. Through the course of the conversation, you’ll see that there is a place for Gentile Christians in the Messianic Jewish movement. ◦◦◦  Do you like what you hear?

S1 EP44 | What’s Happening in Israel?

You might have heard about a bunch of crazy chaos going on over in Israel last month. But maybe you don’t really know what it’s about. Well, in May of 2021, Israel and Hamas in Gaza went head to head for 11 intense days. Incessant rocket fire from Gaza and responding airstrikes from Israel exacted a heavy toll on Palestinians and Israelis. Why the sudden flare-up? What started it all? What really happened in those 11 days? What does it even mean, and why should we care? In this episode of A Jew and A Gentile Discuss, Carly and Ezra explore the conflict as best they can to give you clarity on matters not fully communicated in the news. Along the way, they outline the events of this recent battle between Israel and Gaza, talk about extremists and peace, and stress the emphatic need for prayer.  ◦◦◦  Do you like what you hear?
