Advancing the knowledge of the Messiah Jesus
Good News for Israel is a 130-year-old ministry of dialog, proclamation, education, and reconciliation between the Jewish and Christian communities that takes a strong and active stand against anti-Semitism. From its headquarters in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, Good News encourages all in the respect for and acceptance of the Jewish people as God's chosen people among the nations.
Using the Hebrew scriptures (Old Testament) to tell the story of Yeshua/Jesus
Thom Berkowitz explains how to use the Hebrew scriptures as a witness to the Messiah. Too often we miss the opportunities to share with Jewish people the power of their own scriptures when it comes to telling them about the Messiah. The big mistake most Christians make is trying to use the New Testament to defend Jesus as the Jewish Messiah. The need for the church is to understand how the Messiah is portrayed in the Old Testament, or Hebrew scriptures, in order to get the attention of a Jewish person using their own scriptures.
