  • which the Hebrew Scriptures
  • 00:01:06.000 --> 00:01:08.070
  • spoke of. Jesus didn't come to
  • 00:01:08.240 --> 00:01:11.240
  • start a new religion, but He
  • 00:01:11.240 --> 00:01:13.110
  • came to make Jew and Gentile

  • believing in Jesus is not an
  • 00:01:21.080 --> 00:01:23.010

  • 00:01:38.190 --> 00:01:39.200
  • My name's Rabbi Schneider.
  • 00:01:39.200 --> 00:01:40.250
  • Welcome today to this very
  • 00:01:40.250 --> 00:01:42.250
  • important episode of
  • 00:01:42.250 --> 00:01:44.140
  • Discovering the Jewish Jesus.
  • 00:01:45.020 --> 00:01:48.020
  • fascinating subject. How did
  • 00:01:49.080 --> 00:01:51.220
  • Christianity and Judaism
  • 00:01:51.250 --> 00:01:54.250
  • become separated from each
  • 00:01:54.250 --> 00:01:56.030
  • other? Consider this, when
  • 00:01:56.030 --> 00:01:58.160
  • Jesus came, He, Himself, said
  • 00:01:58.160 --> 00:02:01.080
  • that He did not come to
  • 00:02:01.080 --> 00:02:03.050
  • prophets; that He didn't come
  • 00:02:04.240 --> 00:02:06.000
  • to abolish but to fulfill or
  • 00:02:06.020 --> 00:02:09.020
  • to fill full, in Matthew, 5,
  • 00:02:09.020 --> 00:02:11.080
  • didn't see Himself as one that
  • 00:02:14.000 --> 00:02:16.070
  • came to start a new religion
  • 00:02:16.070 --> 00:02:18.230
  • called Christianity. But
  • 00:02:18.230 --> 00:02:20.170
  • the one that came to complete
  • 00:02:22.030 --> 00:02:24.080
  • that which God had already
  • 00:02:24.080 --> 00:02:26.110
  • revealed in the Hebrew
  • 00:02:26.110 --> 00:02:28.210
  • Scriptures; that which
  • 00:02:28.210 --> 00:02:29.250
  • Christians call today the Old
  • 00:02:29.250 --> 00:02:31.010
  • Testament. Now I want you
  • 00:02:31.010 --> 00:02:32.210
  • Christian. A Christian is
  • 00:02:34.020 --> 00:02:35.230
  • somebody that's following the
  • 00:02:35.230 --> 00:02:37.110
  • Christ. The word Christ is
  • 00:02:37.110 --> 00:02:39.270
  • just the Greek word for
  • 00:02:39.270 --> 00:02:41.080
  • Anointed. So a Christian is
  • 00:02:41.080 --> 00:02:43.090
  • Anointed One. The word
  • 00:02:45.130 --> 00:02:47.120
  • Christ is actually the Greek
  • 00:02:47.120 --> 00:02:49.120
  • equivalent of the Hebrew,
  • 00:02:49.120 --> 00:02:51.000
  • Mashiach, or Anointed. So when
  • 00:02:51.000 --> 00:02:53.180
  • someone says they're a
  • 00:02:53.180 --> 00:02:55.020
  • Christian, it simply means
  • 00:02:55.020 --> 00:02:57.030
  • that they're following the
  • 00:02:57.030 --> 00:02:58.150
  • Anointed One. They're
  • 00:02:58.150 --> 00:03:00.050
  • following the Mashia, the
  • 00:03:00.050 --> 00:03:01.160
  • Mashiach, the Messiah, or
  • 00:03:01.160 --> 00:03:03.190
  • the Christ. I am a Jewish
  • 00:03:03.190 --> 00:03:05.150
  • Christian. I'm a Jew that's
  • 00:03:05.150 --> 00:03:07.050
  • following the Jewish Messiah,
  • 00:03:07.050 --> 00:03:09.110
  • King Jesus. But the word
  • 00:03:09.110 --> 00:03:11.150
  • Christianity, the way that
  • 00:03:11.150 --> 00:03:13.060
  • it's understood today as a
  • 00:03:13.060 --> 00:03:14.240
  • separate and distinct religion
  • 00:03:14.240 --> 00:03:16.230
  • from Judaism, was not part
  • 00:03:16.230 --> 00:03:19.060
  • of Jesus' vocabulary. Now I
  • 00:03:19.070 --> 00:03:22.070
  • understand that when we use
  • 00:03:22.070 --> 00:03:24.010
  • the term Christianity we're
  • 00:03:24.010 --> 00:03:26.080
  • talking about the faith that
  • 00:03:26.080 --> 00:03:27.240
  • is part of the doctrinal
  • 00:03:27.240 --> 00:03:30.180
  • belief system of those that
  • 00:03:30.180 --> 00:03:32.060
  • believe in Jesus. And in that
  • 00:03:32.060 --> 00:03:33.290
  • sense of the word, I'm a
  • 00:03:33.290 --> 00:03:35.070
  • Christianity. But what I'm
  • 00:03:36.160 --> 00:03:38.090
  • trying to point out is that
  • 00:03:38.090 --> 00:03:41.000
  • Jesus never came to start a
  • 00:03:41.000 --> 00:03:43.170
  • unique religion called
  • 00:03:43.170 --> 00:03:45.030
  • Christianity from Judaism. But
  • 00:03:45.030 --> 00:03:47.080
  • rather He came to fulfill that
  • 00:03:47.080 --> 00:03:49.120
  • which God had already revealed
  • 00:03:49.120 --> 00:03:51.050
  • to the Israelites through the
  • 00:03:51.050 --> 00:03:53.040
  • prophets and through Moses.
  • 00:03:53.040 --> 00:03:54.270
  • You see, Jesus illustrated
  • 00:03:54.270 --> 00:03:56.170
  • this many, many times
  • 00:03:56.170 --> 00:03:58.110
  • throughout His teaching. For
  • 00:03:58.110 --> 00:04:00.040
  • example, in John, chapter 4,
  • 00:04:00.100 --> 00:04:03.100
  • Samaria, He said, Woman, we
  • 00:04:05.080 --> 00:04:07.050
  • know what we worship, for
  • 00:04:07.050 --> 00:04:09.060
  • salvation is from the Jews.
  • 00:04:10.270 --> 00:04:13.270
  • What's the point, beloved?
  • 00:04:13.270 --> 00:04:15.120
  • The point was is here was this
  • 00:04:15.120 --> 00:04:16.290
  • Samaritan woman, the woman
  • 00:04:16.290 --> 00:04:18.050
  • at the well. She wasn't
  • 00:04:18.050 --> 00:04:19.150
  • practicing Judaism. She began
  • 00:04:19.210 --> 00:04:22.210
  • to dialogue with Yeshua about
  • 00:04:22.210 --> 00:04:24.260
  • prophetic things, about things
  • 00:04:24.260 --> 00:04:26.270
  • concerning God and the kingdom
  • 00:04:26.270 --> 00:04:28.210
  • of heaven. And Jesus said to
  • 00:04:28.210 --> 00:04:30.230
  • her, Woman, He said, you don't
  • 00:04:30.230 --> 00:04:32.280
  • know what you're talking
  • 00:04:32.280 --> 00:04:34.080
  • about. He said, You don't
  • 00:04:34.080 --> 00:04:35.240
  • worship that which you
  • 00:04:35.240 --> 00:04:37.070
  • understand. He said, We know
  • 00:04:37.070 --> 00:04:39.000
  • what we worship, John, 4:22,
  • 00:04:39.170 --> 00:04:42.170
  • for salvation is from the
  • 00:04:42.170 --> 00:04:45.030
  • Jews. You see, Jesus was born
  • 00:04:45.030 --> 00:04:46.260
  • as a Jew. He lived as a Jew.
  • 00:04:46.260 --> 00:04:48.110
  • He practiced the religion that
  • 00:04:48.110 --> 00:04:50.060
  • God gave to the Hebrew people.
  • 00:04:50.060 --> 00:04:51.260
  • And He claimed that He was the
  • 00:04:51.260 --> 00:04:53.100
  • fulfillment of it all. A very
  • 00:04:53.100 --> 00:04:55.270
  • interesting story in Scripture
  • 00:04:55.270 --> 00:04:58.100
  • happens in Luke, chapter 24.
  • 00:04:58.100 --> 00:05:00.280
  • Here is the setting. Yeshua
  • 00:05:00.280 --> 00:05:03.080
  • had been crucified. As far as
  • 00:05:03.080 --> 00:05:05.060
  • they were totally, totally
  • 00:05:07.010 --> 00:05:09.080
  • devastated. You see, they
  • 00:05:09.080 --> 00:05:11.120
  • thought Jesus was gonna lead
  • 00:05:11.120 --> 00:05:13.000
  • them to victory. They thought
  • 00:05:13.000 --> 00:05:14.130
  • Jesus was gonna be raised up
  • 00:05:14.130 --> 00:05:17.050
  • of God, overthrow the Romans
  • 00:05:17.050 --> 00:05:18.200
  • that were occupying the land
  • 00:05:18.200 --> 00:05:20.120
  • of Israel, restore the Jewish
  • 00:05:20.120 --> 00:05:22.030
  • people to their place of
  • 00:05:22.030 --> 00:05:23.090
  • prominence. This One that the
  • 00:05:23.090 --> 00:05:25.110
  • disciples had left everything
  • 00:05:25.110 --> 00:05:26.200
  • to follow, believing Him to be
  • 00:05:26.200 --> 00:05:28.240
  • their deliverer, believing
  • 00:05:28.240 --> 00:05:30.210
  • that He would redeem Israel,
  • 00:05:30.210 --> 00:05:32.040
  • what happens? Instead it
  • 00:05:32.040 --> 00:05:33.140
  • appears that it all fell apart
  • 00:05:33.140 --> 00:05:35.170
  • because Jesus, this One that
  • 00:05:35.170 --> 00:05:37.130
  • they followed and left
  • 00:05:37.130 --> 00:05:38.210
  • everything for, just got
  • 00:05:38.210 --> 00:05:40.070
  • crucified. So they were
  • 00:05:40.070 --> 00:05:42.200
  • totally confused, totally
  • 00:05:42.200 --> 00:05:44.260
  • devastated. It was like the
  • 00:05:44.260 --> 00:05:46.180
  • world had just been pulled out
  • 00:05:46.180 --> 00:05:48.120
  • from underneath their feet.
  • 00:05:48.120 --> 00:05:49.170
  • They were totally confused and
  • 00:05:49.170 --> 00:05:51.130
  • this road to a city called
  • 00:05:53.010 --> 00:05:55.200
  • Emmaus in this lost, confused
  • 00:05:55.200 --> 00:05:57.200
  • state. And as they're walking,
  • 00:05:57.200 --> 00:05:59.060
  • beside them, and enters into
  • 00:06:02.150 --> 00:06:04.290
  • their conversation. But Yeshua
  • 00:06:04.290 --> 00:06:07.010
  • had taken on a different
  • 00:06:07.010 --> 00:06:08.250
  • physical appearance. After
  • 00:06:08.250 --> 00:06:10.070
  • all, He's God in the flesh,
  • 00:06:10.070 --> 00:06:11.240
  • right? He can do anything He
  • 00:06:11.240 --> 00:06:12.280
  • wants to do. He walked through
  • 00:06:12.280 --> 00:06:13.290
  • walls. He stilled the sea. He
  • 00:06:13.290 --> 00:06:15.260
  • raised Lazarus from the dead.
  • 00:06:15.260 --> 00:06:17.100
  • miracles. By definition, God
  • 00:06:18.200 --> 00:06:20.150
  • is supernatural because He's
  • 00:06:20.150 --> 00:06:22.260
  • Spirit. And Spirit is
  • 00:06:22.260 --> 00:06:24.260
  • supernatural because it's
  • 00:06:24.260 --> 00:06:26.270
  • supernatural, meaning He's
  • 00:06:29.070 --> 00:06:30.170
  • above the natural. So to
  • 00:06:30.170 --> 00:06:32.020
  • believe that Jesus appeared in
  • 00:06:32.020 --> 00:06:33.200
  • a different form, and this is
  • 00:06:33.200 --> 00:06:34.290
  • just basic stuff. So Jesus
  • 00:06:34.290 --> 00:06:36.240
  • appears to them now, but in
  • 00:06:36.240 --> 00:06:39.000
  • a physical form that they
  • 00:06:39.000 --> 00:06:40.240
  • like a different human being.
  • 00:06:42.050 --> 00:06:43.130
  • And Jesus just begins to enter
  • 00:06:43.130 --> 00:06:44.260
  • into their conversation, and
  • 00:06:44.260 --> 00:06:46.150
  • He says, What's, what's going
  • 00:06:46.150 --> 00:06:48.010
  • on? And He kind of played dumb
  • 00:06:48.010 --> 00:06:49.220
  • with them. He played dumb. And
  • 00:06:49.220 --> 00:06:51.220
  • they said, What, what do you
  • 00:06:51.220 --> 00:06:52.270
  • mean, what's going on? Are you
  • 00:06:52.270 --> 00:06:53.290
  • the only one in Jerusalem that
  • 00:06:53.290 --> 00:06:56.040
  • doesn't know what's going on?
  • 00:06:56.040 --> 00:06:57.150
  • That this Jesus that we
  • 00:06:57.150 --> 00:06:58.250
  • thought was the Messiah, that
  • 00:07:00.120 --> 00:07:01.160
  • the Romans, you know, had Him
  • 00:07:01.160 --> 00:07:03.190
  • crucified? Are, don't you...
  • 00:07:03.190 --> 00:07:05.080
  • And then what happened was
  • 00:07:05.080 --> 00:07:06.160
  • Jesus, still in this physical
  • 00:07:06.160 --> 00:07:08.270
  • form that they didn't
  • 00:07:08.270 --> 00:07:10.100
  • recognize, He began to take
  • 00:07:10.100 --> 00:07:12.040
  • them, the Bible says, through
  • 00:07:12.040 --> 00:07:13.180
  • a journey from the law of
  • 00:07:13.180 --> 00:07:16.040
  • Moses, the prophets and the
  • 00:07:16.040 --> 00:07:17.260
  • Psalms. And what Jesus did,
  • 00:07:17.270 --> 00:07:20.270
  • again disguised to them, but
  • 00:07:20.280 --> 00:07:23.280
  • He took them through the
  • 00:07:23.280 --> 00:07:25.040
  • Hebrew Bible that we call the
  • 00:07:25.040 --> 00:07:26.150
  • Tanakh, or the Old Testament,
  • 00:07:26.150 --> 00:07:28.140
  • and He pointed out all the
  • 00:07:28.140 --> 00:07:30.050
  • prophecies in the Old
  • 00:07:30.050 --> 00:07:32.090
  • Testament that pointed to how
  • 00:07:32.090 --> 00:07:34.170
  • the Messiah would have to
  • 00:07:34.170 --> 00:07:35.260
  • suffer and be raised again.
  • 00:07:35.260 --> 00:07:37.160
  • Actually I want to read that
  • 00:07:37.160 --> 00:07:39.010
  • Scripture for you; the Book of
  • 00:07:39.010 --> 00:07:40.120
  • Luke, chapter number 24.
  • 00:07:40.120 --> 00:07:42.260
  • And I'm gonna read there
  • 00:07:42.260 --> 00:07:44.260
  • verse number 27 and 31. Hear
  • 00:07:44.260 --> 00:07:47.250
  • the Word of God. The grass
  • 00:07:47.250 --> 00:07:49.030
  • withers, beloved ones, and the
  • 00:07:49.030 --> 00:07:50.230
  • flowers fade, but the Word of
  • 00:07:50.230 --> 00:07:52.180
  • the Lord abides forever. And
  • 00:07:52.180 --> 00:07:54.220
  • then it says: Then beginning
  • 00:07:54.220 --> 00:07:56.130
  • with Moses and with all the
  • 00:07:56.130 --> 00:07:59.080
  • prophets, He explained to them
  • 00:07:59.080 --> 00:08:01.280
  • the things concerning Himself
  • 00:08:01.280 --> 00:08:03.230
  • in all the Scriptures. So
  • 00:08:03.230 --> 00:08:05.270
  • remember, Jesus is still
  • 00:08:05.270 --> 00:08:07.130
  • speaking to them. They don't
  • 00:08:07.130 --> 00:08:09.080
  • recognize that it's Jesus.
  • 00:08:09.080 --> 00:08:11.240
  • But Jesus, appearing as a
  • 00:08:11.240 --> 00:08:12.290
  • stranger, begins to take them
  • 00:08:12.290 --> 00:08:14.170
  • on a journey through the
  • 00:08:14.170 --> 00:08:15.190
  • entire Tanakh, through the
  • 00:08:15.190 --> 00:08:17.050
  • entire Old Testament, through
  • 00:08:17.050 --> 00:08:18.230
  • Moses, the prophets, and we
  • 00:08:18.230 --> 00:08:20.040
  • read in other places, even the
  • 00:08:20.040 --> 00:08:21.250
  • Psalms. And then in verse 31,
  • 00:08:21.250 --> 00:08:23.180
  • we read this: Then their
  • 00:08:23.180 --> 00:08:25.160
  • eyes were opened and they
  • 00:08:25.160 --> 00:08:27.130
  • recognized Him; and He
  • 00:08:27.130 --> 00:08:29.130
  • vanished from their sight. In
  • 00:08:29.130 --> 00:08:31.090
  • other words, Jesus was showing
  • 00:08:31.090 --> 00:08:33.200
  • His apostles, He was showing
  • 00:08:33.200 --> 00:08:36.020
  • His disciples that He was the
  • 00:08:36.020 --> 00:08:38.030
  • spoke of. You see, Jesus,
  • 00:08:41.210 --> 00:08:44.170
  • beloved ones, is the
  • 00:08:44.170 --> 00:08:46.000
  • fulfillment of Judaism.
  • 00:08:46.000 --> 00:08:47.110
  • He didn't come to start a
  • 00:08:47.110 --> 00:08:49.010
  • separate religion from
  • 00:08:49.010 --> 00:08:50.110
  • Judaism, but Biblically and
  • 00:08:50.110 --> 00:08:52.280
  • historically He came to
  • 00:08:52.280 --> 00:08:54.230
  • fulfill Judaism. And without
  • 00:08:55.000 --> 00:08:58.000
  • Jesus, Judaism is incomplete.
  • 00:08:58.240 --> 00:09:01.260
  • I like to think of it this
  • 00:09:01.260 --> 00:09:02.260
  • way. If you were flying, let's
  • 00:09:02.260 --> 00:09:05.100
  • you couldn't get a direct
  • 00:09:09.200 --> 00:09:10.290
  • flight, which is most often
  • 00:09:10.290 --> 00:09:12.150
  • the case, you might fly from
  • 00:09:12.150 --> 00:09:14.040
  • Ohio to Atlanta. And then you,
  • 00:09:14.260 --> 00:09:17.260
  • in Atlanta, would pick up the
  • 00:09:17.260 --> 00:09:20.020
  • connecting flight to let's
  • 00:09:20.020 --> 00:09:21.220
  • say, Miami Beach, Florida.
  • 00:09:21.220 --> 00:09:24.000
  • Well Judaism without Jesus is
  • 00:09:24.000 --> 00:09:26.070
  • like wanting to get to Miami
  • 00:09:26.070 --> 00:09:27.200
  • Beach, Florida. You get from
  • 00:09:27.200 --> 00:09:29.150
  • Ohio to Atlanta, but then you
  • 00:09:29.150 --> 00:09:31.240
  • miss your connecting flight
  • 00:09:31.240 --> 00:09:33.240
  • from Atlanta to Miami Beach.
  • 00:09:33.240 --> 00:09:36.140
  • You see, Judaism without Jesus
  • 00:09:36.140 --> 00:09:38.050
  • aim to which the Hebrew
  • 00:09:41.150 --> 00:09:43.130
  • Scriptures spoke of. You see,
  • 00:09:43.130 --> 00:09:46.080
  • Jesus said this in John,
  • 00:09:46.080 --> 00:09:48.080
  • chapter 5. He said to the
  • 00:09:48.080 --> 00:09:50.000
  • Jewish people, He said, If you
  • 00:09:50.000 --> 00:09:51.280
  • believed Moses, you'd believe
  • 00:09:52.180 --> 00:09:55.180
  • Me for Moses wrote of Me.
  • 00:09:58.070 --> 00:10:01.070
  • Again, Jesus said, Do not
  • 00:10:01.070 --> 00:10:02.100
  • think I've come to abolish the
  • 00:10:02.100 --> 00:10:03.250
  • law and the prophets. For I've
  • 00:10:03.250 --> 00:10:05.210
  • not come to abolish but to
  • 00:10:05.210 --> 00:10:07.150
  • what? Fulfill. And so all this
  • 00:10:07.150 --> 00:10:09.170
  • this series of messages that
  • 00:10:11.110 --> 00:10:14.060
  • is about how it is that
  • 00:10:14.060 --> 00:10:16.200
  • Judaism and Christianity
  • 00:10:17.030 --> 00:10:20.030
  • separated from each other and
  • 00:10:20.030 --> 00:10:21.100
  • became two distinct religions,
  • 00:10:21.100 --> 00:10:23.280
  • where Jesus never came to
  • 00:10:23.280 --> 00:10:25.040
  • start a distinct religion but
  • 00:10:25.040 --> 00:10:27.180
  • rather came, beloved, to
  • 00:10:27.180 --> 00:10:29.130
  • myself being born as a Jew,
  • 00:10:31.180 --> 00:10:33.140
  • raised as a Jew by two Jewish
  • 00:10:33.140 --> 00:10:35.070
  • parents, Bar Mitzvahed in a
  • 00:10:35.070 --> 00:10:37.060
  • conservative synagogue, often
  • 00:10:37.060 --> 00:10:38.280
  • times I hear from both Gentile
  • 00:10:38.280 --> 00:10:40.290
  • alike the same thing. They say
  • 00:10:43.170 --> 00:10:44.260
  • to me, How can you be a Jew
  • 00:10:44.260 --> 00:10:47.170
  • and a Christian? You're either
  • 00:10:47.170 --> 00:10:49.200
  • But you can't be both.
  • 00:10:53.260 --> 00:10:56.260
  • Let me say it again. So
  • 00:10:56.260 --> 00:10:58.100
  • often times I'm confronted by
  • 00:10:58.100 --> 00:11:00.110
  • people, and often times in
  • 00:11:00.110 --> 00:11:01.260
  • hostility, from both Gentiles
  • 00:11:01.260 --> 00:11:04.120
  • and Jews. And they say to me,
  • 00:11:04.120 --> 00:11:06.180
  • How can you say that you're
  • 00:11:06.180 --> 00:11:07.280
  • Jewish and that you believe in
  • 00:11:07.280 --> 00:11:09.200
  • Jesus? There's no such thing.
  • 00:11:09.200 --> 00:11:11.070
  • a Christian. But there's no
  • 00:11:13.100 --> 00:11:14.240
  • such thing as a Jew, they say,
  • 00:11:14.240 --> 00:11:17.070
  • that' says they're a
  • 00:11:17.070 --> 00:11:18.160
  • Christian. But you know what,
  • 00:11:18.160 --> 00:11:19.220
  • beloved? Being Jewish and
  • 00:11:19.220 --> 00:11:21.200
  • being Christian are two
  • 00:11:21.200 --> 00:11:23.180
  • completely different things in
  • 00:11:23.180 --> 00:11:25.070
  • this sense; that as a Jew, you
  • 00:11:25.070 --> 00:11:28.050
  • become a Jew not because of
  • 00:11:28.050 --> 00:11:30.080
  • what you believe, but you
  • 00:11:30.080 --> 00:11:32.160
  • become a Jew because of how
  • 00:11:32.160 --> 00:11:34.120
  • you're born. It's because of
  • 00:11:34.120 --> 00:11:36.140
  • your ancestral lineage. In
  • 00:11:36.140 --> 00:11:38.200
  • other words, a Jew is a
  • 00:11:38.200 --> 00:11:40.170
  • physical offspring of Abraham,
  • 00:11:41.100 --> 00:11:44.100
  • Isaac, and Jacob. That's why a
  • 00:11:44.100 --> 00:11:46.240
  • Jewish boy or an Israelite
  • 00:11:47.020 --> 00:11:50.020
  • that's born into the world
  • 00:11:50.020 --> 00:11:51.260
  • through the lineage of
  • 00:11:51.260 --> 00:11:53.130
  • Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, is
  • 00:11:53.130 --> 00:11:55.080
  • circumcised on the eighth day.
  • 00:11:55.080 --> 00:11:57.220
  • Think about this. All the
  • 00:11:57.220 --> 00:11:59.070
  • Israelites and all Jewish
  • 00:11:59.070 --> 00:12:00.160
  • people today that are part of,
  • 00:12:00.160 --> 00:12:02.070
  • you know, practicing Jewish
  • 00:12:02.070 --> 00:12:04.020
  • families, the eighth day,
  • 00:12:04.020 --> 00:12:06.020
  • the Jewish son will be
  • 00:12:06.020 --> 00:12:08.080
  • circumcised. Now let me ask a
  • 00:12:08.080 --> 00:12:10.020
  • what does that little Jewish
  • 00:12:12.250 --> 00:12:14.090
  • boy believe? Does He believe
  • 00:12:14.090 --> 00:12:16.010
  • in, in, in, in the Tanakh or
  • 00:12:16.010 --> 00:12:18.160
  • the Old Testament? Or does He
  • 00:12:18.160 --> 00:12:20.020
  • believe in the New Testament?
  • 00:12:20.020 --> 00:12:21.090
  • He doesn't believe in either.
  • 00:12:21.090 --> 00:12:22.240
  • Right? He's eight days old.
  • 00:12:22.240 --> 00:12:24.050
  • doctrinal belief system.
  • 00:12:26.070 --> 00:12:27.150
  • He doesn't know anything.
  • 00:12:27.150 --> 00:12:29.090
  • But He's circumcised as an
  • 00:12:29.090 --> 00:12:30.200
  • Israelite or as a Jew, get it
  • 00:12:30.200 --> 00:12:32.090
  • now, beloved, not because of
  • 00:12:32.090 --> 00:12:33.260
  • what He believes, or because
  • 00:12:33.260 --> 00:12:36.110
  • of the religion that He's
  • 00:12:36.110 --> 00:12:37.210
  • practicing. But rather He's
  • 00:12:37.210 --> 00:12:39.210
  • circumcised because He's a
  • 00:12:39.210 --> 00:12:41.230
  • physical descendent of
  • 00:12:41.230 --> 00:12:44.070
  • Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
  • 00:12:44.170 --> 00:12:47.170
  • So being an Israelite or being
  • 00:12:47.170 --> 00:12:49.110
  • Jewish is about your physical
  • 00:12:49.110 --> 00:12:51.040
  • lineage. Being a Christian is
  • 00:12:51.230 --> 00:12:54.230
  • not something that you're born
  • 00:12:54.230 --> 00:12:56.120
  • into either. Being a Christian
  • 00:12:56.120 --> 00:12:59.010
  • is that which describes one
  • 00:12:59.010 --> 00:13:01.120
  • who is actively following the
  • 00:13:01.120 --> 00:13:04.110
  • Christ, in Hebrew, Mashiach or
  • 00:13:04.120 --> 00:13:07.120
  • Messiah. So Christians are
  • 00:13:07.120 --> 00:13:09.260
  • made up of both Gentile
  • 00:13:09.260 --> 00:13:12.050
  • followers of Jesus and Jewish
  • 00:13:12.050 --> 00:13:14.080
  • that is actively following
  • 00:13:16.060 --> 00:13:18.080
  • Jesus is a Christian, okay.
  • 00:13:19.130 --> 00:13:22.130
  • So again, being a Christian is
  • 00:13:22.130 --> 00:13:24.130
  • about your beliefs and about
  • 00:13:24.130 --> 00:13:26.210
  • relates to Jesus. It's
  • 00:13:29.050 --> 00:13:31.030
  • something that you choose.
  • 00:13:32.200 --> 00:13:35.200
  • But being a Jew is not about
  • 00:13:35.200 --> 00:13:37.050
  • the religion that you're
  • 00:13:37.050 --> 00:13:38.180
  • practicing, but rather it's
  • 00:13:38.180 --> 00:13:39.250
  • about your ancestral lineage.
  • 00:13:39.250 --> 00:13:41.010
  • In fact, today within the
  • 00:13:41.010 --> 00:13:42.030
  • Jewish community, we have
  • 00:13:42.030 --> 00:13:43.130
  • Orthodox Jews. We have
  • 00:13:43.130 --> 00:13:44.160
  • Conservative Jews. We have
  • 00:13:44.160 --> 00:13:46.080
  • Reformed Jews. We have Jews
  • 00:13:46.080 --> 00:13:48.120
  • that are part of the
  • 00:13:48.120 --> 00:13:49.140
  • Reconstructionist Movement.
  • 00:13:49.140 --> 00:13:50.220
  • We have Jews that are part of
  • 00:13:50.220 --> 00:13:51.230
  • the Renewal Movement. And they
  • 00:13:51.230 --> 00:13:53.040
  • have vastly different belief
  • 00:13:53.040 --> 00:13:54.200
  • systems often times. But they
  • 00:13:54.200 --> 00:13:56.260
  • still consider themselves
  • 00:13:56.260 --> 00:13:58.070
  • fully Jews, even though they
  • 00:13:58.070 --> 00:14:00.090
  • don't agree on so many things.
  • 00:14:00.170 --> 00:14:03.170
  • Why? Because they share the
  • 00:14:03.170 --> 00:14:05.030
  • same physical lineage. Even
  • 00:14:05.030 --> 00:14:06.100
  • agnostic or atheistic Jews
  • 00:14:06.100 --> 00:14:08.230
  • today are still considered
  • 00:14:08.230 --> 00:14:11.080
  • Jews, if they don't even
  • 00:14:11.080 --> 00:14:12.200
  • believe in God, they say. Why?
  • 00:14:12.200 --> 00:14:13.280
  • Because they're physical
  • 00:14:13.280 --> 00:14:15.140
  • descendants of Abraham, Isaac,
  • 00:14:15.140 --> 00:14:16.160
  • and Jacob. So I just want to
  • 00:14:16.160 --> 00:14:18.070
  • clear up right away that the,
  • 00:14:18.070 --> 00:14:19.220
  • you know, it's not comparing
  • 00:14:19.220 --> 00:14:21.160
  • apples to apples when we talk
  • 00:14:21.160 --> 00:14:23.210
  • about being a Jew and being a
  • 00:14:23.210 --> 00:14:25.180
  • Christian; one's a matter of
  • 00:14:25.180 --> 00:14:26.260
  • birth, one is a matter of
  • 00:14:26.260 --> 00:14:28.030
  • identity that comes from our
  • 00:14:28.030 --> 00:14:29.250
  • belief and our practice. But
  • 00:14:29.250 --> 00:14:31.240
  • getting back to my point, I'm
  • 00:14:31.240 --> 00:14:34.110
  • gonna be showing you in this
  • 00:14:34.110 --> 00:14:35.270
  • series how it could be that
  • 00:14:36.110 --> 00:14:39.110
  • woman of Samaria in John, 4:
  • 00:14:40.260 --> 00:14:42.240
  • 22, Salvation's from the Jews;
  • 00:14:45.020 --> 00:14:48.020
  • how Jesus that when He came,
  • 00:14:48.020 --> 00:14:49.130
  • did you know He said to, to,
  • 00:14:49.130 --> 00:14:50.220
  • to Gentiles that came to Him,
  • 00:14:50.220 --> 00:14:51.270
  • He said to the Gentiles,
  • 00:14:51.270 --> 00:14:52.260
  • listen, He said, I've come
  • 00:14:52.260 --> 00:14:53.250
  • only to the lost sheep of the
  • 00:14:53.250 --> 00:14:55.160
  • House of Israel. Think about
  • 00:14:55.160 --> 00:14:57.150
  • this. Jesus comes as a Jew.
  • 00:14:57.150 --> 00:15:00.110
  • You see, when He was born, the
  • 00:15:00.110 --> 00:15:02.180
  • Wise Men said, Where is He
  • 00:15:02.180 --> 00:15:05.010
  • that was born King of the
  • 00:15:05.030 --> 00:15:08.030
  • Jews? So He's born into the
  • 00:15:08.030 --> 00:15:09.290
  • world as a Jew. Then He's
  • 00:15:09.290 --> 00:15:12.010
  • raised, get it now, by
  • 00:15:12.010 --> 00:15:13.180
  • practicing Jewish parents.
  • 00:15:13.180 --> 00:15:16.160
  • I mean, we know that Jesus'
  • 00:15:16.160 --> 00:15:18.080
  • parents not only were born
  • 00:15:18.080 --> 00:15:20.130
  • physically Jewish, but that
  • 00:15:20.130 --> 00:15:22.010
  • they were practicing the
  • 00:15:22.010 --> 00:15:23.160
  • religion that God gave the
  • 00:15:23.160 --> 00:15:25.000
  • Hebrew people because the
  • 00:15:25.000 --> 00:15:26.110
  • Bible tells us, listen now,
  • 00:15:26.110 --> 00:15:28.150
  • that Jesus' parents went to
  • 00:15:28.150 --> 00:15:31.120
  • Jerusalem to celebrate
  • 00:15:31.120 --> 00:15:32.250
  • Passover every year. Many
  • 00:15:32.250 --> 00:15:34.250
  • Jewish people only got to
  • 00:15:34.250 --> 00:15:36.180
  • Jerusalem once in a lifetime.
  • 00:15:36.180 --> 00:15:38.020
  • But Jesus' parents brought Him
  • 00:15:38.020 --> 00:15:39.290
  • to celebrate Passover every year
  • 00:15:39.290 --> 00:15:41.110
  • in Yerushalayim, which means
  • 00:15:41.110 --> 00:15:43.280
  • they were practicing Jews. So
  • 00:15:43.280 --> 00:15:46.100
  • think about it. Jesus, born as
  • 00:15:46.100 --> 00:15:47.260
  • a Jew; the Wise Men said,
  • 00:15:47.260 --> 00:15:49.190
  • Where is He that was born King
  • 00:15:49.190 --> 00:15:51.050
  • of the Jews? Then He's raised,
  • 00:15:51.050 --> 00:15:52.240
  • get it, by practicing Jewish
  • 00:15:52.240 --> 00:15:55.090
  • parents. Jesus was circumcised
  • 00:15:55.090 --> 00:15:57.120
  • on the eighth day, we read
  • 00:15:57.120 --> 00:15:59.060
  • about in Scripture. Then when
  • 00:15:59.060 --> 00:16:01.000
  • He began to minister, who did
  • 00:16:01.000 --> 00:16:03.280
  • He choose to be His disciples?
  • 00:16:03.280 --> 00:16:05.070
  • Twelve Jewish apostles. Who
  • 00:16:05.070 --> 00:16:07.110
  • did He choose to be His
  • 00:16:07.110 --> 00:16:08.150
  • apostles, I should say? Twelve
  • 00:16:08.150 --> 00:16:10.010
  • Jews. And then when Gentiles
  • 00:16:10.010 --> 00:16:12.240
  • came when He was walking upon
  • 00:16:12.240 --> 00:16:14.050
  • the earth, He said, right now,
  • 00:16:14.050 --> 00:16:15.150
  • He said, I've come only to
  • 00:16:15.150 --> 00:16:16.230
  • minister to the Jewish people.
  • 00:16:16.230 --> 00:16:18.060
  • We know that after Jesus was
  • 00:16:18.060 --> 00:16:19.280
  • crucified, the Gospel went out
  • 00:16:19.280 --> 00:16:21.170
  • to the entire world. We're
  • 00:16:21.170 --> 00:16:22.270
  • just trying to point out the
  • 00:16:24.060 --> 00:16:25.140
  • extreme Jewish context of
  • 00:16:25.250 --> 00:16:28.250
  • Messiah and of our faith in
  • 00:16:28.250 --> 00:16:31.100
  • Jesus. So Jesus then gets
  • 00:16:31.100 --> 00:16:33.040
  • twelve Jewish apostles around
  • 00:16:33.040 --> 00:16:36.000
  • Him, and He ministers only, He
  • 00:16:36.000 --> 00:16:37.200
  • said, to the lost sheep of the
  • 00:16:37.200 --> 00:16:39.120
  • House of Israel. Then when
  • 00:16:39.120 --> 00:16:42.030
  • Yeshua gets crucified, they
  • 00:16:42.030 --> 00:16:44.050
  • says what? Jesus of Nazareth,
  • 00:16:46.240 --> 00:16:49.240
  • King of the Jews. What happens
  • 00:16:50.260 --> 00:16:53.260
  • next? The Spirit of God is
  • 00:16:53.260 --> 00:16:56.140
  • poured out on the disciples,
  • 00:16:56.140 --> 00:16:58.080
  • on the Jewish holy day called
  • 00:16:58.080 --> 00:17:00.140
  • Shavuot, that we call in
  • 00:17:00.140 --> 00:17:02.170
  • English or Greek, Pentecost.
  • 00:17:02.170 --> 00:17:05.010
  • And what about right now and
  • 00:17:05.010 --> 00:17:06.190
  • what about in the future? Well
  • 00:17:06.190 --> 00:17:08.020
  • right now when we read the
  • 00:17:08.020 --> 00:17:09.180
  • Book of Revelation, we read
  • 00:17:09.180 --> 00:17:11.120
  • that Jesus is sitting in
  • 00:17:11.120 --> 00:17:13.050
  • heaven right now, today, as
  • 00:17:13.170 --> 00:17:16.170
  • the self-described Lion from
  • 00:17:18.020 --> 00:17:21.020
  • the Tribe of Judah. And
  • 00:17:21.020 --> 00:17:23.010
  • finally, we read in the last
  • 00:17:23.010 --> 00:17:24.190
  • chapter of the New Testament,
  • 00:17:24.190 --> 00:17:25.260
  • Revelation, 22, that Jesus is
  • 00:17:25.290 --> 00:17:28.290
  • coming back, get it now,
  • 00:17:28.290 --> 00:17:30.120
  • church, as the Offspring of
  • 00:17:30.260 --> 00:17:33.260
  • David. So He came as a Jew. He
  • 00:17:33.260 --> 00:17:36.240
  • lived as a Jew. He ministered
  • 00:17:36.240 --> 00:17:38.270
  • the sign above His head that
  • 00:17:40.250 --> 00:17:43.170
  • said, Yeshua of Nazareth, King
  • 00:17:43.170 --> 00:17:44.280
  • of the Jews. He sits in heaven
  • 00:17:44.280 --> 00:17:46.120
  • right now as the Lion from the
  • 00:17:46.120 --> 00:17:47.260
  • Tribe of Judah. And He's
  • 00:17:47.260 --> 00:17:48.240
  • coming back as the Offspring
  • 00:17:48.240 --> 00:17:50.150
  • of David. You see, this is
  • 00:17:50.150 --> 00:17:51.240
  • separation between faith in
  • 00:17:53.280 --> 00:17:56.280
  • Jesus and Judaism in term of
  • 00:17:56.280 --> 00:17:59.120
  • our understanding should have
  • 00:17:59.140 --> 00:18:02.160
  • never taken place the way
  • 00:18:02.160 --> 00:18:04.000
  • that it has today. Don't
  • 00:18:04.000 --> 00:18:05.050
  • misunderstand, church, I'm not
  • 00:18:05.050 --> 00:18:06.110
  • trying to make Gentiles Jews.
  • 00:18:06.110 --> 00:18:08.050
  • I'm just trying to tell you,
  • 00:18:08.050 --> 00:18:09.190
  • if you're a Gentile believer,
  • 00:18:09.190 --> 00:18:11.030
  • that you should not separate
  • 00:18:11.030 --> 00:18:12.290
  • your faith in Jesus from
  • 00:18:12.290 --> 00:18:15.140
  • Judaism. You should understand
  • 00:18:15.140 --> 00:18:17.040
  • who Jesus is from a Judaic
  • 00:18:17.040 --> 00:18:19.140
  • context because this is the
  • 00:18:19.140 --> 00:18:21.150
  • these are the clothes that
  • 00:18:23.270 --> 00:18:25.110
  • He's still wearing. Now let me
  • 00:18:25.110 --> 00:18:26.290
  • say finally today that we know
  • 00:18:26.290 --> 00:18:29.040
  • at the end of the day God is
  • 00:18:29.040 --> 00:18:31.040
  • above being Jewish, okay,
  • 00:18:31.040 --> 00:18:33.150
  • because God is Spirit. And
  • 00:18:33.150 --> 00:18:35.210
  • Spirit is above the flesh.
  • 00:18:35.210 --> 00:18:37.260
  • But we also don't want to
  • 00:18:37.260 --> 00:18:39.140
  • disregard the fact, beloved,
  • 00:18:39.140 --> 00:18:40.270
  • that when we go to heaven,
  • 00:18:40.270 --> 00:18:42.190
  • we're going to a city called
  • 00:18:42.190 --> 00:18:44.130
  • what? The New Jerusalem,
  • 00:18:44.130 --> 00:18:46.280
  • right, which is the capital
  • 00:18:46.280 --> 00:18:48.020
  • of Israel today. It's just
  • 00:18:48.020 --> 00:18:49.140
  • prophetic fulfillment of it.
  • 00:18:49.140 --> 00:18:51.120
  • And the gates of this New
  • 00:18:51.120 --> 00:18:54.030
  • Jerusalem in heaven, this
  • 00:18:54.030 --> 00:18:55.120
  • capital city of heaven, will
  • 00:18:55.120 --> 00:18:56.200
  • be inscribed, the Bible tells
  • 00:18:56.200 --> 00:18:57.280
  • us, listen now, with the names
  • 00:18:57.280 --> 00:18:59.250
  • of the twelve Tribes of
  • 00:19:00.120 --> 00:19:03.120
  • Israel. Now if you question
  • 00:19:03.120 --> 00:19:05.210
  • anything that I'm saying
  • 00:19:05.210 --> 00:19:07.100
  • today, I want to encourage you
  • 00:19:07.100 --> 00:19:09.070
  • to do what they do in
  • 00:19:09.070 --> 00:19:10.140
  • politics. Do a fact check. And
  • 00:19:10.140 --> 00:19:13.030
  • what you'll find is that every
  • 00:19:13.030 --> 00:19:15.020
  • single thing, beloved, that
  • 00:19:15.020 --> 00:19:16.180
  • I've told you today and shared
  • 00:19:16.180 --> 00:19:18.060
  • with you comes right out of
  • 00:19:18.060 --> 00:19:20.140
  • the Word of God. The message
  • 00:19:20.140 --> 00:19:21.230
  • that I've brought, beloved,
  • 00:19:21.230 --> 00:19:24.140
  • it's a Biblical message. So
  • 00:19:24.140 --> 00:19:25.250
  • what we're gonna continue on
  • 00:19:25.250 --> 00:19:27.060
  • next week is showing you how
  • 00:19:27.060 --> 00:19:28.210
  • this could be. How could it be
  • 00:19:29.200 --> 00:19:32.200
  • that when Jesus ate His last
  • 00:19:32.200 --> 00:19:33.290
  • meal with His disciples,
  • 00:19:33.290 --> 00:19:35.040
  • disciples, which we call the
  • 00:19:35.040 --> 00:19:36.180
  • Passover meal, right, Yeshua
  • 00:19:36.180 --> 00:19:37.290
  • said, Go and prepare for Me
  • 00:19:39.140 --> 00:19:40.220
  • the Passover, okay. How could
  • 00:19:40.220 --> 00:19:43.140
  • came as a Jew, lived as a Jew,
  • 00:19:46.020 --> 00:19:47.100
  • died as a Jew, celebrated His
  • 00:19:47.100 --> 00:19:48.260
  • last meal with His disciples
  • 00:19:48.260 --> 00:19:50.180
  • as a Passover meal, still sits
  • 00:19:50.180 --> 00:19:52.190
  • in heaven as the Lion from the
  • 00:19:52.190 --> 00:19:53.290
  • Tribe of Judah, coming back as
  • 00:19:53.290 --> 00:19:55.110
  • the Offspring of David, how
  • 00:19:55.110 --> 00:19:56.170
  • has it been possible that the
  • 00:19:56.170 --> 00:19:59.000
  • message of Christianity got
  • 00:19:59.000 --> 00:20:00.240
  • so separate, separate from
  • 00:20:00.240 --> 00:20:02.250
  • Judaism? And why is it today
  • 00:20:02.250 --> 00:20:04.280
  • that Jewish people look at
  • 00:20:04.280 --> 00:20:07.050
  • Jesus and Christianity as
  • 00:20:07.200 --> 00:20:10.200
  • something that's un-Jewish?
  • 00:20:10.200 --> 00:20:13.050
  • And how is it and why is it
  • 00:20:13.050 --> 00:20:14.120
  • today that many Gentile
  • 00:20:14.120 --> 00:20:15.170
  • Christians when they look at
  • 00:20:15.170 --> 00:20:17.160
  • their faith in Jesus, they
  • 00:20:17.160 --> 00:20:18.210
  • see it as totally distinct
  • 00:20:18.210 --> 00:20:20.130
  • and separate from Judaism?
  • 00:20:20.130 --> 00:20:22.230
  • Hopefully I'm gonna help you
  • 00:20:22.230 --> 00:20:24.260
  • put this all back together.
  • 00:20:24.260 --> 00:20:27.160
  • It's gonna give you a lot of
  • 00:20:27.160 --> 00:20:28.190
  • peace. It's gonna bring you a
  • 00:20:28.190 --> 00:20:29.250
  • lot of clarity. I believe
  • 00:20:29.250 --> 00:20:30.290
  • you're gonna celebrate it.
