|Billye Jeane went to be with the Lord on January 20, 2013. She was such a blessing while here on the earth as you will see by the things she wrote. She is greatly missed!|
So, why am I... "a blood-bought, baptized in His name, New Covenant believer/gentile" interested in studying the Jewishness of the Bible? Well here goes:
To fully comprehend our Christian faith, we should know about this fascinating heritage. I am a Apostolic believer, which means, like you, we have our roots in Judaism/Hebraic Roots!
1. We study a Jewish book.
2. That book is penned by Jewish men, except one ...Luke... a Gentile.
3. We serve a Jewish Lord.....who, by the way, is coming back as "King of the Jews."
4. We desire to follow the first century church which was first predominately Jewish.
5. And, through Christ, we are grafted into a Jewish family!
(Please remember I'm trying to keep this simple!)
It makes sense to me to study the Jewish culture!
Much of the Bible is mysterious to most Americans:
1. The Baffling phrases,
2. The sometimes difficult to understand words of Jesus,
3. Unconventional holidays, and parables are only understood with an awareness of the Jewish culture,
4. And our Christian's roots are deep in Judaism through Christ.....all the way back to Abraham!
"And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise." (Galatians 3:29)
Studying Scripture from our "Western/American/Greek" view is like looking for gold in a dark mine with a pen light! You can see enough to stumble around, but you need more Light to see clearly.
A good grasp of the ancient Jewish customs and terminology will allow you to look at the Scriptures with a new awareness this time using the "Flood Light from Heaven," exposing wonderful details and treasures and finding nuggets of pure gold.These studies will be "little nuggets with a Jewish flare" that I believe will help you in your study of this wonderful Gift from God....The Word! But, as always, you be like the Bereans in Acts 17:11, "they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the Scriptures daily, whether those things were so."
Shalom and blessings, Billye Jeane
