An Urgent Message about Ukraine
What’s happening in Ukraine right now is terrible. Jewish Voice is partnering with trusted ministries right in Ukraine – and also Moldova, Romania, and Poland – to provide shelter and relief in Jesus’ name to the escalating number of Ukrainians fleeing for safety. Jewish Voice plans to provide as much comfort and aid as the Lord enables us to do. Please keep praying for Ukraine, and give as the Lord enables you to help during these difficult times.

Global pandemic. Supply chain shortages. Energy crisis. And now Russia has invaded Ukraine. Hard times and heartbreak confront us all around. And it’s making some people wonder how close we’re advancing toward the End Times.

In this episode of A Jew and A Gentile Discuss, Carly and Ezra talk about this Bible topic that some may prefer to avoid. (It’s not exactly what most people read about for a morning devotional, right?) But, they come at it from a different angle than the typical debates about pre-this or post-that. Their conversation reveals a lot about the Jewish perspective of “the world to come,” and they share some Hebrew words that carry some hefty meaning related to the Last Days. They also mention a ton of Scriptures revealing that this whole idea of “the End Times” is not a New Testament, Christian thing. It's an Old Testament, Jewish thing.

S2 EP3 | What Jewish People Wish the Church Understood

The world includes a lot of cultures, right? But when you think about it, it also has a ton of sub-cultures, and each one has its own nuances, understandings and interpretations. What’s said in one micro-culture – even within the same country, state or region – might mean something completely different to another. How on earth are we supposed to get along and be on the same page together? When it comes to all things Jewish and Christian, that’s what this podcast is here for. (Ezra and Carly to the rescue!) In this episode of A Jew and A Gentile Discuss, Carly asks Ezra to talk about three things he believes the Jewish community would like Christians to understand about them. As a bonus, she asks what the Messianic Jewish community wishes the Church grasped about Jewish Believers. Along the Way Along the way, they bring out some great things to help bridge the gap. Things like: A great metaphor Ezra heard, describing Jews and Gentiles, the Bible and a Broadway show How, just because Christians can look backward with a clear vision, doesn’t mean Jewish people can look forward with the same clarity An expression of Judaism that Jews don’t recognize Discussing the Jewish roots of New Testament faith doesn’t always open the door to understanding Advice for Christians regarding sharing their faith with Jewish people An appeal to Jewish people to consider Christian history from a different angle Why some copies of the Scriptures in synagogues go straight from Isaiah 52 to Isaiah 54 Why you can’t “convince someone to faith” The dangerous miscommunication that happens when Christians use the word “convert” with Jewish people The cultural mountain that hinders Jewish people from seeing Jesus in Isaiah 53 What the ...
