Advancing the knowledge of the Messiah Jesus
Good News for Israel is a 130-year-old ministry of dialog, proclamation, education, and reconciliation between the Jewish and Christian communities that takes a strong and active stand against anti-Semitism. From its headquarters in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, Good News encourages all in the respect for and acceptance of the Jewish people as God's chosen people among the nations.
A Jewish believer and pastor talks about antisemitism.
Shelly Volk, a Jewish believer and pastor, talks about the need to come together to understand the relationship between the Jew and Gentile. Looking back in history you can see why the Jewish people are skeptical of the church because of their antisemitism that has been displayed throughout the centuries. Jews have suffered at the hands of Christians who believed they were "Christ Killers" which is far from the truth. Christ came to give His life willingly, and no people group was responsible for His death. His death was the plan of God. However, the European Church was antisemitic in its theological outlook and it was used by the Nazi's to exterminate Jews during World War II. Shelly and June Volk join us this week on our weekly podcast from Good News for Israel, and teach on matters that affect our understanding of the Jews and the Hebrew scriptures. Shelly and June came to know Yeshua/Jesus as their Messiah/Savior from Orthodox Jewish backgrounds and have been pastoring for over 40 years.
