Eight Tent Pegs Fastening Israel’s Destiny in the Purposes of God

Published in Blog

In Isaiah 54, even at a time when she is facing disciplinary judgment, God compares Israel’s final destiny to a tent. We read this: [1] “Sing, O barren one, who did not bear; break forth into singing and cry aloud, you who have not been in labor! For the children of the desolate one will…

Antisemitism Is In The Air: Can You Smell It?

Published in Blog

Antisemitism is like a black mold that infests the foundations of Western civilization. Under certain conditions, that mold activates, and the spores spread, and sometimes the stink is impossible to ignore.

As currently conceived, this blog is a depository for more “crunchy” thinking and writing than my other on line venues, including but not limited to reviews of books I am reading.

Some Reasons Why Advocating for Jewish Yeshua Faith is Often Condemned

Published in Blog

I have been doing this for fifty years, and the…

You will have to imagine this brochure folded, so of course the first thing you will see is the right hand panel just below here, then the second row of panels, and then come back and read the left and middle panels just below. It’s a little clumsy to read it this way, but I…

Passover, the Eucharist, and a More Jewish Jesus

Published in Blog

Two rabbis recently wrote an opinion piece in Christianity Today stating that Yeshua and his disciples did not observe a seder, and that Christians insult Judaism when they incorporate the Passover meal into their own worship gatherings. You may read their article here.  But below is my response to this article. If you read the…

I Believe. . . That The Way The Gospel is Normally Presented is Bad News for the Jews

Published in Blog

In a couple of months,  I will be speaking in Chicago to a group of sophisticated Christians, Jews who believe in Jesus, and some curious Jewish people. My topic will be, “Is Your Gospel Good News for the Jews?” As I demonstrate conclusively in my forthcoming book, “Converging Destinies: Jews, Christians, and the Mission of…
