The Gospel and Israel
Paul Morris (editor), Wipf and Stock

The mission of the church to the Jews is a unique one. The biblical, theological and practical issues differ from those with other groups because Israel was, and is, the people to whom God gave his promises. However, the unbelief of many Jewish people and the persecution of Jewish people in the name of Jesus makes mission to the Jews uniquely difficult, requiring considerable sensitivity. But it is also full of hope, for there is promise of both a remnant and a fullness coming to faith in Jesus the Messiah.

A Wondering Jew
John Fieldsend, Radec Press

I’ve always thought of John Fieldsend as the nearest thing to a national treasure that the British Messianic community possesses. Like fellow Jew Stephen Fry who was born a Hungarian Jew, John appears to be the quintessential English gentleman but is by birth a Czechoslovakian Jew.

Once An Arafat Man
Tass Saada with Dean Merrill

Once again, the Middle East is a mess. The situation looks bleaker than ever but this hostility is nothing new. We can take some comfort in knowing that there are those working to bring peace and reconciliation in Israel between Arab and Jew, as well as reconciliation between man and God. The story of Tass Saada as recorded in Once an Arafat Man: The True Story of How a PLO Sniper Found a New Life is testimony to the fact that such peace on both counts is possible but only through the one true God of Israel.

The Gospel According to Isaiah 53
Darrell L Bock and Mitch Glaser

Isaiah 53 (or, more specifically, Isaiah 52:13-53:12) has been the dominating tool that God has used throughout my pursuit of Jewish ministry. It was this text that I used when one of my aunts in Israel challenged me about why I follow Jesus, the passage I wrote my dissertation on while I was in seminary and one of the main tools God has blessed me with in reaching Jewish people in London.

Dateline Jerusalem
Chris Mitchell

The first lesson I learned from Dateline Jerusalem was never ever to judge a book by its cover. Although the book looks like a second-rate novel about the End Times, it is a treasure trove of information about Israel, radical Islam and the Middle East written by the Jerusalem Bureau Chief of CBN News.

Christ in the Feast of Pentecost
David Brickner & Rich Robinson

Pentecost means "fiftieth" and refers to the holiday that goes by the name Shavuot in Judaism. Shavuot means "weeks" and falls 50 days after Passover or about seven weeks later. What Christians should understand about Pentecost is that when we read the account in Acts chapter 2, we are really reading about a Jewish holiday. By the time of Jesus and the apostles, the day had become the celebration of the giving of the Law on Mount Sinai, complete with fire and thunder.

Christ in the Feast of Tabernacles
David Brickner

A bicyclist in today's Israel riding with branches sticking out of his backpack...giant candleabras in the Temple, lighting up all of Jerusalem in Jesus' time...Jesus calling out, "I am the Light of the world!"...Israelites putting up temporary shelters, or booths, as a symbol of the transcience of life...all have been part of the joyful Feast of Tabernacles, which has been celebrated for thousands of years.

Jewish Themes in The New Testament
Paul Morris

If there is one word which unifies the whole Bible from Genesis to Revelation, I would say it is ‘mission’. The Lord God is on a mission to rescue his fallen, rebellious creation. Pivotal to it all is one person, the Messiah, whom Isaiah calls ‘the Servant of the Lord’, and his role is twofold: ‘to restore the preserved ones of Israel’ and to be ‘a light to the Gentiles’.1 His mission is twofold because of the radically different situations of the two groups to whom he ministers: Israel has light but needs to be brought back to obedience; the nations are in spiritual darkness and need light. Jesus is the Servant of the Lord and his ministry reflects this prophetic pattern.

The Jews, Modern Israel and the New Supersessionism
Calvin L. Smith

In the mid 1980s, after preaching at the morning service of a UK church renowned for its impeccable theological orthodoxy, I was invited to address an impromptu ad hoc gathering to discuss the role of the Jewish people and the modern state of Israel. Many ‘intelligent’ Christians, I was informed, no longer hold to the simplistic view that the Jewish people are the people of God and that the modern state of Israel is a fulfilment of biblical prophecy. What did I think? I can’t remember how the meeting ended but I do know that since then, in many Christian circles, those who view the Jewish people and the state of Israel positively have become the Church’s equivalent of the Tory party’s ‘swivel-eyed loons’.

God's Signature
Steve Maltz

We know that the Old Testament scriptures were written in Hebrew with a smattering of Aramaic but how many of us stop to consider whether there might be a reason why God chose to communicate his written revelation in that particular language? Was it just because Hebrew was the language of his chosen people or did God impart to the Jews a language eminently suited to his revelation.

Time for Favour: Scottish missions to the Jews 1838-1852
John S Ross

Last year, a prominent evangelical minister told an Islamic newspaper in Malaysia that neither the New Testament nor even the Old Testament teaches that the Jews are 'God's chosen people'. Such an idea, he said, was 'total rubbish'. Shortly after that, a respected evangelical leader told me God has 'cast away' ethnic Israel, that the Jews are no longer God's people and there is no future hope for them as a people.

The Mystery of The Last Supper
Colin Humphreys

The last time I can recall being as excited by a book as I was by Colin Humphreys' The Mystery of the Last Supper was when I read John Wenham's Easter Enigma in 1984. What Wenham did for resurrection narratives in the Gospels, Humphreys has done for the New Testament accounts of the Last Supper.
