Is there any place in the Old Testament that clearly teaches that the Messiah is God incarnate?
December 1, 2006
Author: Jews for Jesus

Yes! There are many places in Tenach (the Hebrew Scriptures) that establish the fact that the Messiah must be no one less than God Himself who has come to us in the flesh. As the Son of Man, He is humankind’s representative before a holy and righteous God. As the Son of God, He’s God’s […]

Don’t Christians Believe in Three Gods?
January 1, 2005
Author: Jews for Jesus

No! It’s a very common misrepresentation that while Jews believe in one God, Christians believe in three. The fact is that Christianity is as firmly monotheistic as Judaism. What Christians believe is that this one God exists, in a way finite man can never fully understand, in three persons or personalities. This belief is not […]

A Further Question
Author: Jews for Jesus

Modern Judaism eschews the idea that a man can be God, and this is often cited as an objection to the messiahship of Jesus. But Zechariah forces us to consider the validity of this objection, as the prophet repeatedly refers to the Messiah-king figure as Lord.” Zechariah 14:9: “The Lord will be king over the […]

Is the Messiah Divine?
Author: Louis Goldberg

Gus was a nice guy. But he was also a pest. As a telecommunications engineer I could not have asked for a better co-worker. Gus was proficient and always in a good mood. As a Jew, however, I would have preferred that he talk about almost anything else while working by my side. He was […]

We just got a Macintosh computer. In fact this article is being typed on it. Learning how to use it was filled with all kinds of little surprises, including the unique use of certain words.

Yeshua… Why That Name?

Recently, the subject of names became very important to me, as my wife and I anticipated the birth of our first child. Being from an Ashkenazic background, our choices of names were narrowed—and aided—somewhat by the tradition of naming one’s children after deceased relatives. But even then we discovered, as multitudes of other Jewish parents […]

But I do believe that Jesus’ birth, death and resurrection on this earth was God’s colossal gift to mankind. Sound strange […]

An Angel You Ought to Know
Author: Loren Jacobs

The modern mind cannot conceive of angelic beings. This is due in part to medieval art and literature, which relegate belief in angels to the realm of superstition. Or perhaps we like to try to explain away that which makes us uncomfortable. Indeed, there are those who would even dismiss the belief in God as […]
