JUSTIN KRON TEACHING HEBRAIC ROOTS & SEDER AT BILL HYBELS' WILLOW CREEK COMMUNITY CHURCH AUDIENCE OF 12,000
In April 2011 Justin Kron, teacher of Jewish roots, taught about the Passover Seder and its connections to the life and ministry of Jesus at the Good Friday services of Bill Hybels' Willow Creek Community Church, which attracted more than 12,000 people. You may view the one hour video here at Vimeo: http://vimeo.com/32347987. If this is not a craze gone viral, then what is?
MESSIANIC PASSOVER SEDER ASSUAGES "CHRISTIAN GUILT" OVER HOLOCAUST AND PROVES YOU'RE NOT ANTI-SEMITIC
The following video shows the complexity in the rules and order of a Jewish Seder meal. Must Christians adopt Judaism and Jewish practices to prove they support Israel and are not anti-Semitic? Should we feel guilty about our own Christian heritage for not maintaining Jewish rituals and feasts? Should we atone for the holocaust by bowing to revisionist church history in some false sense of shame for the direction of historical Christianity? Are there Jewish observances that were meant to be continued after the ascension of Jesus Christ and Pentecost? Should we read the New Testament with "Jewish eyes" in order to read between the lines? Decide for yourself, but please do re-read the Scriptures. Please note that near the end of the Seder the Jews still hope for the Messiah or at least Elijah walking through the front door! Why then are Messianics still celebrating Seder if the Messiah has already come?
