Jewish Foundations: Sacrifice, Worship, and the Messiah
Beginning with the time of Abraham and continuing throughout the Old Testament, rituals and religious practices became the Jewish way of life. How did the sacrificial customs of Judaism become the basis for the establishment of Christianity in the New Testament? Steeped as we are in modern Western culture, it's easy to forget that we worship a Jewish Messiah. Jesus was Jewish, and Christianity is deeply rooted in Judaism. The first Christians never thought otherwise because they themselves were Jews. To them, Christianity was not a different religion from Judaism—it was the fulfillment of all that was written in the law and the prophets.
In this 8-lesson interactive study (containing a DVD and leader's guide), you will take a look beneath the surface to discover the groundwork of Christianity and God's plan of redemption for mankind. Travel to the modern-day city of Jerusalem with host Mart DeHaan and guests who are Jewish by birth but Christians by choice. Meno Kalisher is a pastor in Jerusalem; Avner Boskey is a tour guide and worship leader. Stand with them beneath the south wall of Jerusalem's ancient temple, overlooking the pools where 3,000 Jewish believers were baptized on the day of Pentecost, and gain thought-provoking historical and spiritual perspectives that will deepen your faith and enrich your understanding of the Scriptures.
