December 25: Born to Die

Today we turn our attention to the events surrounding Yeshua’s death. He was rejected, abandoned and betrayed by His followers:

December 24:Working of Miracles

Many people say that Jesus never claimed to be God, and yet when asked, Jesus pointed to the miracles He performed, miracles that only God can do. To those who were willing to hear, He proclaimed quite clearly that He was God, that He and the Father were one.

December 21: Messiah is God

If the Messiah had to be God and God is triune in nature, then there need be no question if Messiah Yeshua (Jesus the Christ) is God.

December 20: God is One

That God can be both one and three at the same time is hard for most Jewish people to accept.  But the Hebrew word for “one” makes it clear.

December 19: Messiah has to be God

Atonement was necessary to reconcile sinners to God.  God is holy and required a perfect sacrifice to effect atonement.  At first the people sacrificed animals, but the blood of bulls and goats could not cleanse, it could only cover sin.  Thus God promised that He would provide an acceptable atonement. 

December 18: His Birth

The birth of Jesus was prophesied in detail thousands of years before His birth.

December 17: Messiah or Israel?

 The prophets speak of God’s “Servant.”  In many ways this servant sounds like Israel.  In fact many Jewish scholars interpret these passage that way, but to apply those passages totally to Israel is illogical and impossible.  The ultimate Servant is Jesus – the ultimate Jew.
