The Jewish Roots (Heritage & Essence) of Christian Faith


Dec 3, 10, 17 & Jan 7, 14, 21

The Jewish Roots (Heritage & Essence) of Christian Faith is an ONGROUND ONLY Term 2 Session 2 (8:30–9:45pm) course held at the Messianic Studies Institute (4950 Morse Road, Columbus, Ohio 43230) starting 12/03/2018.

Course Description:
Come explore what it means to be alive and thrive in our "olive tree" connection (Rom 11:18). While Jews remain Jews and Gentiles remain Gentiles in Messiah as their callings in life (see 1 Cor 7:17–24), the 'Christian' (more accurately 'Messianic') way of life is thoroughly Jewish in its heritage and essence. Come be transformed by the richness of this Jewish heritage and essence that will make us wiser, deeper, and richer in living out and handing down the Messianic way of life. Your understanding of history and God's promise plan in history, and your prayer life and reading of the Bible, will never be the same!
