Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: I remind you that His name is Yeshua, that His mother’s name is Miriam, that He’s not the Son of Mr. and Mrs. Christ, He was called Christ because Christ is the Greek way of saying “Messiah.” He didn’t come to establish a lovely new home and garden religion called Christianity. He came to fulfill what was in Moses and the prophets, and He fulfilled the prophecies that had to be fulfilled before the destruction of the second temple; in fact, He prophesied it would be destroyed, and that our people would be scattered for many, many long years before being regathered. He died because we all fall short. He died, the righteous for the unrighteous, the innocent for the guilty. He died in fulfillment of that toward which the sacrificial system was pointing, life for life. As we turn to Him in “teshuvah,” in repentance and faith, and ask Him to forgive us and wash us clean, He will give us a brand new life. “Taste and see that the Lord is good; truly happy is the man/woman who puts his/her trust in Him.”
Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: There are scores, and scores, and scores of sound, biblical reasons for every Jew in the world to follow Jesus as Messiah; there is not one biblical reason not to follow Him. Through embracing Him, we become a light to the world and take the knowledge of God to the ends of the earth. Through embracing Him, not only are our own sins forgiven, but we can take the message of forgiveness to Jews and gentiles around the world. That is the the mission of the Messiah; we become co-laborers with Him.
