Michael Spaulding: March 6, 2018

Is Yeshua the Jewish Messiah? From his book of the same name Eric Chabot writes:

There is no doubt that many Christians are fully convinced that Yeshua is the Savior of the world, and millions of evangelistic appeals are given each year for people to accept Him as personal savior. Yet many believers don’t comprehend all that’s involved in accepting Yeshua as the promised Messiah of Israel and the nations. Scholar Michael Bird explains further:

The statement that Jesus is the Messiah presupposes a certain way of reading Israel’s Scriptures and assumes a certain hermeneutical approach that finds in Jesus the unifying thread and the supreme goal of Israel’s sacred literature. A messiah can only be a messiah from Israel and for Israel. The story of the Messiah can only be understood as part of the story of Israel. Paul arguably says as much to a largely Gentile audience in Rome: “For I tell you that Christ has become a servant of the circumcised on behalf of the truth of God in order that he might confirm the promises given to the patriarchs, and in order that the Gentiles might glorify God for His mercy” (Romans 15:8-9).

Stay tuned for my conversation with Eric Chabot about his new book “Is Yeshua the Jewish Messiah” in this episode of SER.
