I Knew Jesus Before He Was a Gentile – A Narrated Sing-Along Concert
January 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Stuart Dauermann, known as the Father of Messianic Jewish Music, invites his audience to sing along with music that explores and soothes the sometimes sore boundaries between the Christian and Jewish worlds.
First as a composer, and later as a Rabbi in the Messianic Movement, Dr. Dauermann has spent the last fifty years helping Jews and Christians better understand and respect each other.
His songs are music with a message. In the 1970’s and 1980’s the audience was Christians who needed to relearn that Jesus and his first disciples were all Jews. Since the 1990’s, his audience has increasingly been the Messianic Jewish movement, helping members enter more deeply into the liturgical riches of Jewish life.
Narrating and illustrating the story of the evolution of Messianic Jewish music, and incorporating insights from his PhD in Intercultural Studies, Dauermann will turn his audience into singing participants. All should come away more deeply understanding and respecting the rich spiritual legacies Jews and Christians hold in trust, and how these overlap and relate to each other. And those with a heart to do so will find themselves worshiping God.
