Dr. Brown shares insights on the pressure that Israel is currently feeling as well as on the mindset of radical Islam. He also shares some thoughts on his interaction with the rabbis and the religious Jewish community.

Hour 1:

 

Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: The suffering servant, Jesus, Yeshua, shed His blood but it was not in vain. We didn’t understand why He was dying. We thought He was dying for His own sins and then the revelation came that no, it was for our sins. By His wounds there is healing for us.

Hour 2:

 

Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: There are times of favor for the Jewish people and when He specially draws Jewish people to Himself. I believe we are in one of those divine moments and a great harvest is at hand. Let us pray in gathering of the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

  1. Dr. Brown,
    I am the NY Jew who has talked to you before — from Levittown, NY, now living north of Seattle, WA. I never mentioned to you that yes, my decision to get baptized was due to being impressed by your arguments, but I was first drawn into your world last winter via the Think It Thru series. I watched every one. Besides the information, the personal nature of the show helped me to feel fellowship with you. Then I began listening to the radio show. Even though i have been fellowshipping with good, committed, gentile Christians, I do feel at home when I hear you talk. I am a torch bearer and give extra every month as I can afford. With the passcode I got from being a torch bearer, I was able to take your course on Holiness and got a lot out of it. Thanks again for your dedication to the Lord and for your efforts in His name.

  2. Dr. Brown,

    Can you please direct me to where I can obtain All of your debates that you have available please? Thank you and God bless.

  3. @10:45 in the show:

    Are they going to provoke Israel to jealousy by trying to be more Jewish than Jews?

    If you mean are Gentile Believers going to provoke Israel to jealousy by being more obedient to the Torah Miṣwoth, then I’d say yes and no.
    Observant Jews who were raised by loving parents and were taught that the Torah was love and saw the Miṣwoth as a blessing, they will be more likely to come to faith in Yeshua by Geirim who have been brought to the Torah by Yeshua and had its holy commandments written on their hearts by the power of the Holy Spirit because of the New Covenant.

    While Observant Jews who were raised with harsh cruel parents and grew up to hate the Torah and wanted an out and your average secular Israel will find Pentecostal Christians more attractive.

    One thing that should make you think is how Messianic Jews are targeted in Israel in a way that Jewish Christians are not. The Orthodox are comfortable with anomian Christian because the vast majority of Orthodox Jews will never take it seriously, however, Jewish Believers who are only different to their Orthodox brethren because of their faith in Yeshua and the power of the Ruaḥ HaQodhesh, are far more likely to be taken seriously by Orthodox Jews, than Jews who have thrown their tefillin away and want nothing to do with the Miṣwoth and the Rabbis know this. By being blameless, the focal point becomes Yeshua, because there is nothing else to talk about aside from him, but when a Jewish Believer doesn’t walk in obedience to the Torah, the topic becomes, why should I take you seriously when you don’t even say Shema everyday.

  4. David, I absolutely disagree with you, and it appears you are putting more stock in people keeping commandments than in people being filled with the glory and power of God. That is what will provoke Jewish people to jealousy — including the most religious — rather than showing them that we keep the commandments even better than they do. I’m all for Messianic Jews following their convictions as they walk with the Lord, but it will not be their Torah obedience that provokes other Jews to jealousy, it will be the vibrancy of their relationship with God. And remember, it is Paul writing to the Gentile believers in Rome who states that THEY are called to provoke Israel to jealousy.

  5. I put stock in Gentile Believers walking in the fullness of the faith, in all areas. I’m very saddened and grieved by Torah Observant Gentiles who don’t want anything to do with the Holy Spirit, but praying in tongues with not much obedience is not a powerful witness either, but those who earnestly desire and practice the spiritual gifts and are blameless according to righteousness which is in the law (Philippians 3:6) have the best witness, or the Rabbis wouldn’t target them so much.

    You do have to ask yourself, why are Torah Observant Jewish Believers targeted more in Israel than non-observant Jewish Believers? I’ve seen many videos and articles where the Rabbis make a big deal about this. As long as Jews renounce Judaism and become Christians, they are not a threat, but if they stay in Judaism with Yeshua, there’s a massive threat to them.

    Blessed are they whose ways are blameless, who walk according to the law of the LORD. Psalm 119:1

  6. One reason they are targeted, David, is because they are thought to be deceptive, masquerading as Jews when they are just “Christians.” Of course, that is a distorted rabbinic perspective. But over the years, the believers whom I have seen put the most emphasis on detailed Torah-keeping (as opposed to living out the requirements of the Torah by the Spirit) are the least powerful spiritually and least Yeshua-centered — and I’ve been in the midst of this for almost the last three decades.

    As for “renouncing Judaism,” you make the very serious threat of thinking that rabbinic tradition is to be equated with the scriptural obedience. Again, I see very serious errors in your approach and I am concerned as to where you will end up in 10 or 20 years (not to mention where you have already gone).

    Colossians 1:14-18 (CJB): It is through his Son that we have redemption- that is, our sins have been forgiven. He is the visible image of the invisible God. He is supreme over all creation, 16 because in connection with him were created all things- in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones, lordships, rulers or authorities- they have all been created through him and for him. He existed before all things, and he holds everything together. Also he is head of the Body, the Messianic Community- he is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that he might hold first place in everything.

  7. “Chassidic teaching explains that, on the contrary, echad represents a deeper unity than yachid. Yachid is a oneness that cannot tolerate plurality—if another being or element is introduced into the equation, the yachid is no longer yachid. Echad, on the other hand, represents the fusion of diverse elements into a harmonious whole. The oneness of echad is not undermined by plurality; indeed, it employs plurality as the ingredients of unity.”

    According to… The Chassidic Rabbis! 🙂

  8. “are there no good Jewish debaters”.

    lol

    I am feeling “so confident right now we are on the side of truth”.

    I would love to get the leading minds from the Jewish orthodox world and the leading minds from the messianic Jewish world and do chavruta study and debate to come to the conclusion once and for all.

    It is against everything Jewish and Gemara for the Rabbinic Jewish scholars to run away from debate and reason from their fellow messianic Jewish brothers.

    If we are in error, then the leading Rabbinic leadership needs to correct us through debate and reason. Yet they run away to avoid reason and debate for fear of what? We are brothers, why do they run away from public debate to prove and save us from our error? Are they afraid that they themselves will come to become a believer in the Mashiach, that Yeshua is the One. Since when, should reason and debate be feared? The knowledge of truth should rise above within the seekers of truth in a discussion of two altering opinions. With the salvation of our souls in the balance, should not if anything be debated and reasoned, it would be this. The lack and fear of the orthodox leadership among our people only strengthens my faith that there is no defense to the assertions of the messianic Jewish belief rooted back in the first followers and believers of Yeshua ben Elokim. If I am in error by being a believer and follower of Yeshua Moshiach, those that hold the truth that are do not debate and reason with Dr Michael Brown, disallow me to come to the truth. I am dissapointed in my people because truth should never be feared, debate of the leaders of intellect within Scriptures need to happen so that the truth rises to the top just like in the Sanhedrin. As a seeker of truth, my salvation is most dear to me. The truth I believe that I have attained feels indestructible and without weakness yet full of fundemental logic and coherent reasoning. But if I be deceived then my fellow brother Jewish Rabbi has done me a diservice by refusing and running away from the intelligent Dr Michael L Brown. Just my thoughts.

    – the seeker of truth and eternal life.

  9. I’m looking forward to your new book, Dr. Brown! Although I don’t know what more you could say that hasn’t been said, but I know for certain that we’ll see it clearly come April! As you said, the truth of Scripture is on our side and there are those for which the naysayers have no reasonable answer. They can’t go through them, they can’t go around them and they can’t climb over them (hard as they try), because the written word is just too monumental; the truth being preserved forever in it’s pages!

    Praise the Lord for making Himself known to us by His Word!

    I’m praying earnestly for your work and it’s clear that the Holy Spirit is leading you to bear even more fruit in these days of coming harvest! The fields are ripening and are white already for the ultimate Feast of Tabernacles – the season of our greatest joy!

  10. Dr. Brown,

    During the last minute of the first our of the show a gentleman called asking about Sephardic Jews. I was on the Sid Roth website watching the your interview with him and later found a clip where Sid Roth was interviewing Dell Sanchez. Have you heard or know Dell Sanchez? What do you think about his books, about the Cypto Jews and the Inquisition that took place in Spain and in Mexico, as Dell Sanchez writes about.

    He also mentions the prophecy in the book of Obadiah, that the Sephardic Jews will return to Israel and dwell in the Negev.

    Amiably,

    Trezeguet

  11. There is a documentary called:

    They Came for Good: A History of the Jews in the United States: Present at the Creation 1654-1820

    It was interesting to find out that among the first Jews to settle in the U.S. were Sephardic Jews with names like Luis Moses Gomez, Aaron Lopez, and Francis Salvador.

    All these Sephardic Jews, some which were called Marranos or Conversos, fleeing from the Spanish/Portuguese Inquisition that had reached the Americas. They found refuge in some of the first settlements in the U.S.

    Amiably,

    Trezeguet
