A Hopeful Restoration  Sep 7, 2007
A book that seeks to unite us through Yeshua (Jesus). I was allowed to keep my Christian identity, while embracing its roots.
Going back to where this started  Jun 29, 2007
So much out there. SO much said and so little understood. This and that and Everything else. So many theologians saying so many things. Up is down and down is up. Right and Wrong and Nothing really really means what it says.

Well scripture really means what it says. But what are we reading?

This book is a good set for understanding.

Truth is what one really needs to do in order to walk with Christ one really needs to walk in his footsteps for a while in his sandals.

This wonderful little book is very good for that purpose.

A must read for anyone serious in seeking one's way.
Segregating and Judaizing Christianity  Mar 5, 2006
That is the essential agenda that this book supports and promotes. Segregating Christianity into Jewish believers and Christian believers is a dangerous venture and one that would break Christianity into the Messianic Jewish Chosen elite and ordinary Christians. Stan Telchin has very accurately warned about this and people would be well advised his book, A Loving Call to Unity.

Lately there is a trend to subvert authentic Christianity by reverting to Jewish practices and this self-hatred and Judaizing is a sad thing indeed and true Christians should beware of it.
To repair what has been broken  Sep 17, 2005
This short but powerful book contains the parts relevant to Christians from the author's much longer work, The Messianic Jewish Manifesto. Chapter One explores the restoration of the Jewishness of the Gospel versus the alternative of contextualising it. Looking at Christianity and culture, Stern describes the early growth of the church amongst gentiles as Transcultural Judaism. Gentile believers were not forced to adopt Jewish customs although the infant church was entirely Jewish. But not everyone understood the Gospel message in this way: the Gospel got confused with culture and the act of embracing the Saviour eventually came to mean rejecting these Jewish roots entirely. Stern dissects the various forms of evangelism and comes to the conclusion that the restoration of the Jewishness of the Gospel (Type 4 Evangelism) is where Jewish people fit in.

Chapter Two deals with the "whole counsel of God" by investigating the church and Israel in theology and history. Stern discusses three distinct theologies: Covenant, Dispensational and what he terms "Olive Tree." The section dealing with the history of Israel and the church contains two highly illuminating illustrations: The Cultivated Olive Tree and The Cross Sections Of The Tree. Here the exact relationship between Israel and the church is explained with reference to the book of Romans. The chapter includes a discussion of the Gospel as both corporate and individual. The most fascinating part of this chapter is the explanation of the four kinds of scriptural interpretation: Simple, Hint, Search and Secret. Stern provides a thorough refutation of the arguments that God is "finished" with the Jewish people. In debunking Replacement Theology, he emphasizes that the promises to the Jewish nation remain pivotal in biblical religion. The role of Torah in the Gospel is also discussed here.

Chapter Three looks at Christianity as a Jewish religion and makes clear how evil Anti-Semitism is. All thoughts, words or deeds that harm Israel or Jewish people just because they are Jews, violate the spirit of the Gospel. Stern quotes from the Book of Romans to illustrate that the gospel message is especially for the Jew and stresses the importance of evangelisation. But Christians must tread ever so carefully! I cannot imagine anything more absurd, in the light of centuries of Jewish persecution by Christians, than Christians ignorant of the roots of their faith attempting to "convert" Jews. In my personal opinion, in these times it would be more appropriate for Christians to spiritually and materially support Israel. Rather leave the actual task of bringing the message of Yeshua to Jewish people to God and the Messianics. Perhaps that is what Stern means. If so, I agree with him.

The last chapter looks forward to the wonderful blessings that will flow forth when true Christians and the Jews finally embrace one another. Stern makes a plea for Christians to show mercy to the Jewish people. He is not specific about this, but I would imagine this to include support for the State of Israel, opposing Anti-Semitism and Anti-Zionism, helping Diaspora Jews to make aliyah to their homeland, etc.

The book concludes with a Glossary of Hebrew words and names, an Index of Scripture verses and other early literature, and an index. For further information, I also recommend the books Understanding The Difficult Words of Jesus by David Bivin, Our Hands Are Stained With Blood by Michael L Brown, Yeshua by Ron Moseley and Your People Shall Be My People by Don Finto. May the reader be blessed with insight and understanding.
Restoring the Jewishness of the Gospel: A Message for Christians (Paperback)  Sep 12, 2005
This is an excellent book, I think that all serious Christians, should have this book in there collection. In fact Christians should buy two of them one to keep for themselves and another to give to another believer to read. I have learned a lot, and it has changed my mind (in a good way) about the gospel. I highly recommend this book. The book was in excellent condition, and I received it in a timely manor.
