Thom Berkowitz Talks about the Importance of the Hebrew scriptures
- The Bible is one story in two parts. What is commonly called "The Old Testament" lays the foundation of God's relationship with a people who He chose to bring His promise of a Savior to the world. The Jews were those people and it was through God's covenants with them that established the promise of a Savior The New Testament records the results of the promised Savior coming to earth to fulfill all the promises God made to Israel, and establish the New Covenant of Jeremiah 31:31-34. The Bible is a great example of how faithful God is to keeping His promises to Israel. Hebraic teacher Thom Berkowitz explains how important the "Old Testament" or the Hebrew scriptures are to the church. Thom Berkowitz teaches that the Church needs to rediscover the foundation of the Hebraic roots through Israel and the Jewish people to understand how prophecy will be fullfilled in the Middle East.
