In the upcoming weeks, we will begin to hear holiday music, decorate our homes, and hopefully spend time with family.
With the excitement and busyness of Advent and Christmas, many people do not realize that Jesus is Jewish or that the Hebrew Scriptures spoke of His birth.
Advent, the month leading up to Christmas, is a time to ponder the Messiah’s coming and prepare our hearts to celebrate His birth.
This year, experience Advent through Jewish eyes. Hear from three Jewish believers in Jesus on what the Hebrew Scriptures say about the Messiah’s coming. Dr. Michael Rydelnik, professor of Jewish studies at Moody Bible Institute, will talk about when the Messiah was prophesied to come according to the prophet Daniel. Dr. Mitch Glaser, president of Chosen People Ministries, will discuss why the Messiah came. Finally, radio host Dr. Michael Brown will illuminate what the Bible says concerning the virgin birth.
“Advent through Jewish Eyes” will be on Thursday, December 9, 2021, at 7:30 pm EST. We hope you will join us at this FREE virtual event! Together, we will gain a deeper understanding of who Jesus is and why He came.
