The Struggle for Jerusalem
Introduction:

 

      Jerusalem is a holy city to three faiths: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. As such, the debate over who should control the city is more than just a political one; it is a battle over which god is God, and which religion is the truth. Centuries have passed since the founding of Jerusalem and, as Scripture has predicted, it has become a stumbling block for anyone who tries to pick it up.

Quartodecimanism

 

 

In the short following chapter of the account by Eusebius, a chapter headed "How All came to an Agreement respecting the Passover", he recounts that the Palestinian bishops Narcissus and Theophilus, together with the bishops of Tyre and Ptolemais, wrote a lengthy review of the tradition of Sunday celebration of Easter "which had come to them in succession from the apostles", and concluded by saying:

 

Endeavor to send copies of our epistle to every church, that we may not furnish occasion to those who easily deceive their souls. We show you indeed that also in Alexandria they keep it on the same day that we do. For letters are carried from us to them and from them to us, so that in the same manner and at the same time we keep the sacred da

However, this did not finally settle the issue. In his Life of Constantine, Eusebius reports that some continued to celebrate Passover on the day commanded by God (exo 12, lev 23)

 

The First Ecumenical Council, held in 325 at Nicaea, declared the Sunday after 14 Nisan the sole official date. In a letter to the bishops who had not been present, Emperor Constantine I said that it had been decided to adopt a uniform date, rejecting the custom of the Jews, who had crucified Jesus and whose practice often meant that two passovers were celebrated in the same solar year:

 

It was resolved by the united judgment of all present, that this feast ought to be kept by all and in every place on one and the same day. For what can be more becoming or honorable to us than that this feast, from which we date our hopes of immortality, should be observed unfailingly by all alike, according to one ascertained order and arrangement? And first of all, it appeared an unworthy thing that in the celebration of this most holy feast we should follow the practice of the Jews, who have impiously defiled their hands with enormous sin, and are, therefore, deservedly afflicted with blindness of soul. For we have it in our power, if we abandon their custom, to prolong the due observance of this ordinance to future ages, by a truer order, which we have preserved from the very day of the passion until the present time. Let us then have nothing in common with the detestable Jewish crowd; for we have received from our Saviour a different way. A course at once legitimate and honorable lies open to our most holy religion. Beloved brethren, let us with one consent adopt this course, and withdraw ourselves from all participation in their baseness... being altogether ignorant of the true adjustment of this question, they sometimes celebrate Easter twice in the same year. Why then should we follow those who are confessedly in grievous error? Surely we shall never consent to keep this feast a second time in the same year… And let your Holinesses' sagacity reflect how grievous and scandalous it is that on the self-same days some should be engaged in fasting, others in festive enjoyment; and again, that after the days of Easter some should be present at banquets and amusements, while others are fulfilling the appointed fasts. It is, then, plainly the will of Divine Providence (as I suppose you all clearly see), that this usage should receive fitting correction, and be reduced to one uniform rule

Isaiah was the most comprehensive of all prophets: his writing spans the entirety of history, from the creation of the world to the creation of “a new heavens and new earth.” No other prophet matches his majestic eloquence on the glory of God and the redemptive work and sufferings of the Coming Messiah, all the while making us clearly aware of God’s abounding Grace.

 Doctrines of Demons.

by Ron Matsen

 

Description

 

What does the Bible have to say about the End Times? Matthew’s Gospel records the warning of Jesus where He said, “Take heed that no one deceives you.” The apostle Paul expands on this by stating; “Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons.”

Satan often relies on deception through disinformation. Misinformation is defined an accidental un-truth where disinformation is the intentional misrepresentation of the truth. Therefore, doctrines of demons are creeds that offer counterfeit truths.

  • What are these “doctrines of demons” that the Bible warns us about?

  • Is there “another Jesus” being accepted by many within the world today?

  • Is there “another Spirit” working in the world today?

Join Ron Matsen in the Executive Briefing Room of the River Lodge, New Zealand as he investigates and exposes these dangerous doctrines.

NEW BRIEFING PACKAGE

The Fulcrum

of the

 Entire Universe

 

 

 

 

Price R 179.00

 

 

Isaiah 53 describes the astonishing personal sacrifice that is the fulcrum—the pivot—of the entire cosmic drama. However, it is the personal aspect of this passage that grips our soul.

The Fulcrum of the Universe. The Pivot of All History. These sound like rather fanciful labels, don’t they? We are talking about Isaiah 53, often called the “Holy of Holies of the Old Testament.” In just 12 verses, it summarizes the entire New Testament as the clarion of the Old.

 

The Scope of the Passage

 

The surprising scope of this passage includes the entire universe. The Crucifixion of Christ involved more than just our personal redemption: it involved the entire creation. This shouldn’t surprise us: “The heavens declare the glory of God; the firmament shows His handiwork.

Everlasting Words

from the Old Paths

by Dr. Dan Stolebarger

 

 

Thus says the Lord: “Stand in the ways and see, And ask for the old paths, where the good way is, And walk in it; Then you will find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’”
— Jeremiah 6:16
We live in a culture that is all about change. A fast paced world that is always looking for the next new thing. We want something new and fresh, but this constant search creates exhaustion.
Where do we find the things that are immovable and everlasting?
What are some of the truths that we can lean on?
Where do we find rest?
In this briefing, Dan explores answers to these questions by studying The Aaronic Blessing, The Shema and The Lord’s Prayer.

China says probing reports Chinese chlorine used in Syria attack

 
‎23 ‎April ‎2014, ‏‎04:11:58 PMGo to full article
BEIJING - China's foreign ministry said on Wednesday that it was investigating reports that a chlorine canister bearing the name of the country's biggest arms maker was shown in footage believed to document a gas attack in Syria this month.

Attacks this month in several areas in Syria share characteristics that have led analysts to believe that there is a coordinated chlorine bomb campaign, with growing evidence that it is the government side dropping the weapons.

In the rebel-held village of Kfar Zeita in the central province of Hama, 125 miles (200 km) north of Damascus, opposition activists uploaded video of people choking and being fed oxygen following what they said were bombs dropped from helicopters on April 11 and 12.

Further footage showed a partially exploded canister with the chemical symbol for chlorine along with the name of Chinese arms manufacturer Norinco.

Reuters could not verify the authenticity of the videos and Norinco, also known as China North Industries Group Corporation, has not responded to requests from Reuters for comment.

"After seeing this report, we paid great attention and immediately sought to understand (the situation) from relevant departments. We will clarify this issue in a timely manner," Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang told a regular press briefing.

KUALA LUMPUR - Malaysia's cabinet approved on Wednesday the appointment of an international team to investigate the disappearance of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, the country's acting Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said.

"The main purpose of the international investigation team is to evaluate, investigate and determine the actual cause of the accident so similar accidents could be avoided in the future," Hishammuddin told reporters in Kuala Lumpur.

Hishammuddin added that the government has had talks with Malaysian state oil firm Petronas and other unidentified entities to expand the deep-sea search for the missing plane in the southern Indian Ocean.

In response to reports of a Fatah-Hamas unity government in five weeks, Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman said on Wednesday that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas needs to decide whether he wants peace with Hamas or with Israel.

Liberman said it would be impossible for Fatah to have peace with Israel while simultaneously being joined with Hamas, a terror organization whose mission is to destroy Israel.

"If Abbas signs a unity government agreement with Hamas, he is signing the end of negotiations between Israel and the PA."

PERTH, Australia - Unidentified material washed up on the Australian coastline is being investigated for possible links to a Malaysian jetliner that disappeared more than seven weeks ago with 239 people on board, the Australian authorities said on Wednesday.

Australian police have secured the material, found 10 km (6 miles) east of the town of Augusta at the southern tip of Western Australia state, the Joint Agency Coordination Center said in a statement.

The material, no description of which was given, is the first report of suspected debris in weeks and the first lead since April 4, when authorities detected what they believed might have been a signal from the Malaysia Airlines plane's black box recorder.

Lebanese MPs fail to pick new president in first vote

 
‎23 ‎April ‎2014, ‏‎02:43:56 PMGo to full article
BEIRUT - Lebanese parliamentarians failed to elect a new president in a first round of voting on Wednesday, with leading candidate Samir Geagea falling well short of the required two-thirds majority.

Parliament must choose a successor to President Michel Suleiman, whose six-year term ends in late May. But deep political divisions within the country and over the war in neighboring Syria have hampered efforts to agree on a new president, who must be a Maronite Christian.

Geagea's failure to win sufficient votes had been widely expected and is likely to open up the race to other candidates in a process which politicians have warned could drag on for months.
 
 

Saudi Arabia reports 11 new cases of MERS virus, first in Mecca

 
‎23 ‎April ‎2014, ‏‎02:39:47 PMGo to full article
ABU DHABI - Saudi Arabia said on Wednesday it had discovered 11 more cases of the potentially deadly Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), including what appeared to be the first case in the Muslim holy city of Mecca.

A health ministry statement said eight of the people were in intensive care, two were stable, including a 24-year-old Saudi man from the "holy capital" Mecca, and one showed no symptoms. Three of those affected worked in health care, it said.

Saudi Arabia has witnessed a jump in the rate of infection with the virus in recent weeks, with many of the new cases recorded in Jeddah, the kingdom's second largest city.

Of Wednesday's 11 new cases, four were recorded in the Saudi capital Riyadh, six in Jeddah - the second largest city and the main entry point for pilgrims visiting nearby Mecca - and one in Mecca itself, the statement said.

The jump in Saudi cases is of particular concern as the country is expected to see a large influx of pilgrims from around the world in July during the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, followed in early October by the arrival of millions of people to perform the annual Haj in Mecca and Medina.

The latest cases bring the total number of confirmed cases in the kingdom to 272, of whom 81 have died.

MOSCOW - Russia would retaliate if its citizens' interests were threatened and its territory came under attack, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was quoted as saying, adding the United States was behind events in Ukraine.

"If we are attacked, we would certainly respond," he told Russia Today (RT) television in an interview to be aired later on Wednesday, according to RT's website.

"If our interests, our legitimate interests, the interests of Russians have been attacked directly, like they were in South Ossetia for example, I do not see any other way but to respond in accordance with international law," he said, referring to a separatist territory in Georgia into which Moscow sent troops in August 2008.

"There is no reason not to believe that the Americans are running the show," RT quoted him as saying, referring to developments in Kiev.

Bomb kills Egyptian police officer

 
‎23 ‎April ‎2014, ‏‎01:05:42 PMGo to full article
CAIRO - A senior Egyptian police officer was killed when a bomb exploded under his car outside his home near Cairo on Wednesday, state television and a security source said.

Brigadier-General Ahmed Zaki was killed in the explosion in 6th of October City, 32 km (20 miles) from the capital, the state-run Nile news TV station reported.

Bombings and shootings targeting the police have become commonplace in Egypt since the army deposed president Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood last July.

Egypt holds a presidential election in late May which former army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is expected to win. Sisi, who deposed Morsi following mass protests against his rule, has vowed to crush the militant threat.

Korean prosecutors raid ferry firm founder's home

SEOUL - South Korean prosecutors investigating the fatal sinking of the Sewol ferry on Wednesday raided the home of Yoo Byung-un, the head of a family that owns the Chonghaejin Marine Co. Ltd, the company that operated the vessel.

Yonhap news agency reported that Yoo's home and a church in which he is believed to have an interest were raided. The prosecutors' office declined to comment and Reuters correspondents at the church in Seoul said it had been locked.

The finances of Chonghaejin and its complex share structure have come into the spotlight in recent days. Yoo was jailed for fraud for four years in the early 1990s.

Last Wednesday's accident looks set to be South Korea's worst maritime disaster in 21 years in terms of loss of life.

The Sewol sank on a routine trip from the port of Incheon, near Seoul, to the southern island of Jeju.

Of the 476 passengers and crew on board, 339 were children and teachers on a high school outing. Only 174 people have been rescued and the remainder are all presumed to have drowned. The confirmed death toll on Wednesday was 128.
 

Egypt to receive US funds only if peace with Israel preserved

US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel told his Egyptian counterpart Col. Gen. Sedki Sohby on Tuesday night that American financial aid will continue only if Egypt maintains its obligations under the 1979 Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty.

Hagel also told Gen. Sohby that the US was "not yet able to certify that Egypt is taking steps to support a democratic transition" - a necessary condition for a continued "strategic relationship" between the two countries.

Gen. Sohby was also informed of US President Barack Obama's decision to deliver ten Apache helicopters in support of Egypt's counterterrorism efforts in the Sinai. The gesture was meant to help the Egyptian government counter extremists who threaten Egyptian, Israeli and US security, Hagel said.

ATP Tour event coming to Ramat Hasharon

The Israel Tennis Association officially confirmed on Tuesday that Ramat Hasharon will host an ATP World Tour 250 event in place of St. Petersburg between September 15 and 21.

The event will be relocated to Israel from Russia following the approval of the tourna ment’s request by the ATP Board of Directors at its meetings in Monte Carlo this week. The approval is subject to final agreement of conditions between ATP and the tournament.

“After 19 memorable years in St. Petersburg, the time has come for us to take the tournament in a new direction,” said tournament representative Ruslan Linkov. “We are very excited about the opportunities that lie in Tel Aviv.”

The tournament will offer $1 million in prize money, with the ATP World Tour to return to Israel for the first time since 1996.

The Ramat Hasharon Tennis Center hosted an ATP event for nine consecutive years between 1987 and 1996. Ramat Hasharon will also host Israel’s Davis Cup World Group playoff tie versus Argentina over the weekend of September 12-14.

Israeli-Georgian billionaire, Mikhael Mirilashvili, based in Israel and Russia, is the majority owner of the tournament and is believed to be behind the decision to relocate the event due to the political situation in Ukraine and the disappointing income generated in St. Petersburg in past years.
 

Bahrain sentences 12 people for life for spying, Iran links

 
‎23 ‎April ‎2014, ‏‎12:45:56 AMGo to full article
MANAMA - A Bahraini court has sentenced 12 men to life in prison for spying, receiving training from Iran's Revolutionary Guard and processing weapons and explosives, a defence lawyer and rights activist said on Tuesday.

Bahrain accuses Shi'ite power Iran of fuelling unrest in the country since a 2011 uprising led by the Shi'ite Muslim community demanding reforms and more share in running the kingdom ruled by the Sunni Muslim al-Khalifa dynasty.

Tehran denies the accusation, but defends the cause of Bahrain's Shi'ite opposition.

Attorney Fatima al-Adraj said the court convicted the men on Sunday, and sentenced two others to 15 years.

Some of the men were tried in absentia, said Maskati. It was not clear how many of them were actually jailed.

Last year, Bahrain, which hosts the US Fifth Fleet, accused Iran's Revolutionary Guard of setting up a "terrorist" cell that planned to attack its airport and government buildings.
 
 

US to send 600 troops to Eastern Europe

WASHINGTON - The United States will send about 600 US troops to Poland and the three Baltic states to take part in exercises in the coming days to reassure NATO allies following Russia's seizure of the Crimean region from Ukraine, the Pentagon said on Tuesday.

Rear Admiral John Kirby, a top Defense Department spokesman, said the bilateral exercises planned for Poland, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia were in addition to the regular training schedule the US military has with those countries and were added due to the events in Ukraine.

"The United States takes seriously our obligations under Article 5 of the NATO alliance, even though these aren't NATO exercises," Kirby said. "It's a very tangible representation of our commitment to our security obligations in Europe."

Noting that police were aware that hundreds of thousands of pilgrims from around the world came to visit the Kotel, it insisted officials take measures to ensure the incident does not repeat itself.
 
 

Bennett to Abbas on threats to dissolve PA: 'If you're going to shoot, than shoot'

Bayit Yehui leader Naftali Bennett played down Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas's threats that he would dissolve the Palestinian Authority if peace talks with Israel broke down, saying Tuesday that this was the seventh time that the Palestinian leader had made these threats.

"We hear again and again the recycling of the same threat , that if we don't advance (with the peace process) and if we don't give him everything that he want he will Ov vey! dissolve the PA," Bennett said at The Ramle Conference.

"I suggest to Abu Mazen: If you're going to shoot, then shoot, don't talk. The state of Israel is stronger than Abu Mazen's threats," Bennett said.

Arab League criticizes Syrian election plan

 
‎22 ‎April ‎2014, ‏‎06:27:15 PMGo to full article
CAIRO - Holding an election in Syria while civil war rages will only obstruct international efforts to resolve the conflict, the head of the Arab League said on Tuesday.

President Bashar Assad's government announced on Monday that a presidential election would take place on June 3 - an event that is certain to extend his grip on power.

"This step could suspend the desired efforts of maturing negotiations for a political solution to the Syrian crisis," Nabil el-Araby, the head of the Cairo-based Arab League, said in a statement.

Western and Gulf Arab countries that back rebels fighting to topple Assad have criticized the decision to hold elections, calling it a "parody of democracy" that would wreck efforts to negotiate a peace settlement.

UN and Arab League-backed talks in Geneva collapsed in February with both sides far from agreement on any issue including the fate of Assad, whose family has ruled for more than four decades.

"Practically, a fair, democratic and credible elections could not take place in the middle of the humanitarian tragedy that the children of the Syrian people are living...and with over 6 million homeless Syrians," Araby said.

Gun battles, shelling and air strikes take place daily in almost all of Syria's provinces and the weekly death toll from the conflict regularly exceeds 1,000.
 
 

Turkey's PM Erdogan warns against May Day protests in Taksim Square

 
‎22 ‎April ‎2014, ‏‎05:51:10 PMGo to full article
ANKARA - Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday he would not let unions stage a May Day rally in Istanbul's Taksim Square, where huge protests took place last year, in an announcement that may set the scene for fresh clashes there.

The government has suggested next week's traditional gathering should take place at a special venue on the outskirts of Istanbul, rather than in the city center, but unions have rejected that idea.

The authorities issued a similar ban last year, leading to thousands of anti-government protesters fighting with police as they tried to breach barricades around the huge square, which in previous years was a focal point for labor demonstrations.

That violence was followed by mass protests that spread across Turkey late last May, in one of the biggest challenges to Erdogan's rule since his AK Party came to power in 2002.

"Give up your hope of Taksim," Erdogan said at a meeting of AK lawmakers in parliament.

"The people do not want to see protesters clashing with police in the street. The people don't want streets scenes dominated by stones, sticks and Molotov cocktails."

"Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God." — Matthew 5:9

 

This is the seventh of the beatitudes: and seven was the number of perfection among the Hebrews. It may be that the Saviour placed the peacemaker the seventh upon the list because he most nearly approaches the perfect man in Christ Jesus. He who would have perfect blessedness, so far as it can be enjoyed on earth, must attain to this seventh benediction, and become a peacemaker. There is a significance also in the position of the text. The verse which precedes it speaks of the blessedness of “the pure in heart: for they shall see God.” It is well to understand that we are to be “first pure, then peaceable.” Our peaceableness is never to be a compact with sin, or toleration of evil. We must set our faces like flints against everything which is contrary to God and His holiness: purity being in our souls a settled matter, we can go on to peaceableness. Not less does the verse that follows seem to have been put there on purpose. However peaceable we may be in this world, yet we shall be misrepresented and misunderstood: and no marvel, for even the Prince of Peace, by His very peacefulness, brought fire upon the earth. He Himself, though He loved mankind, and did no ill, was “despised and rejected of men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.” Lest, therefore, the peaceable in heart should be surprised when they meet with enemies, it is added in the following verse, “Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Thus, the peacemakers are not only pronounced to be blessed, but they are compassed about with blessings. Lord, give us grace to climb to this seventh beatitude! Purify our minds that we may be “first pure, then peaceable,” and fortify our souls, that our peaceableness may not lead us into cowardice and despair, when for Thy sake we are persecuted.

Adolf Hitler (German: [ˈadɔlf ˈhɪtlɐ] ( ); 20 April 1889 – 30 April 1945) was an Austrian-born German politician and the leader of the Nazi Party (German: Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (NSDAP); National Socialist German Workers Party). He was chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945 and dictator of Nazi Germany (as Führer und Reichskanzler) from 1934 to 1945. Hitler was at the centre of Nazi Germany, World War II in Europe, and the Holocaust.

Hitler was a decorated veteran of World War I. He joined the German Workers' Party (precursor of the NSDAP) in 1919, and became leader of the NSDAP in 1921. In 1923, he attempted a coup in Munich to seize power. The failed coup resulted in Hitler's imprisonment, during which time he wrote his memoir, Mein Kampf (My Struggle). After his release in 1924, Hitler gained popular support by attacking the Treaty of Versailles that had been forced on Germany and promoted nationalism, Pan-Germanism, and antisemitism with charismatic oratory and Nazi propaganda. Hitler frequently denounced international capitalism and communism as being part of a Jewish conspiracy.

Jews for Jesus Releases 'That Jew Died for You' Video Ahead of Easter, Holocaust Remembrance Day

'Our Intent Was Not to Illicit Any Kind of Angry Response,' Says Ministry

 

Jews video

The video, "That Jew Died For You," was released by Jews for Jesus during Holy Week in an effort to engage people in dialogue about what the Messiah means to Jews and Christians, say the group's leaders, April 2014.

A short dramatic video depicting Jesus in line to be sent inside the Auschwitz concentration camp by Nazi soldiers circa 1943 Poland, and chosen to be killed inside a gas chamber, was released this week by Jews for Jesus, a ministry of Christian outreach into the Jewish community.

The video, "That Jew Died for You," was intentionally released in conjunction with Passover, Holy Week and upcoming Holocaust Remembrance Day to help redefine the conversation and reshape views of Jesus and His relationship to the Holocaust, the group's leaders say.

"Our intent was not to illicit any kind of angry response but to actually engage people in a conversation because we think that the conversation about who Jesus is [is] important for Jews and Gentiles to discuss, and especially at this time of year, as we are in the Passover, Easter season, and leading into Holocaust Remembrance Day next week," Susan Perlman, associate executive director of Jews for Jesus, told The Christian Post Thursday.

"Jews and Christians are thinking about themes of redemption and hope, and there's no greater redemption story than that of Jesus who came to die for our sins and rise again, that all of us can have new life in Him," Perlman said.

SEE VIDEO BELOW

However, the video that was officially launched on Wednesday, has already caused a stir. Jay Michaelson in his blog for The Jewish Daily Forward wrote that he believes Jews will find the film so offensive that it "could be used to keep Jews Jewish."

"… it's hard to fathom who thought this project would be a good idea. Any Jew with personal, familial, or even historical memories of the Holocaust will immediately find it to be an outrage," he wrote. "Not to state the obvious, but it desecrates the memory of six million Jews to use their suffering as a way to convert Jews to Christianity."

Perlman said a wide spectrum of response was what Jews for Jesus expected.

"There are some who will get it and say this is so powerful and really does speak to the issue of Jesus among the sufferers, not the persecuted. There are others who have just a visceral reaction regarding anything having to do with the Holocaust," she said.

In the video, Jews who have come out of a box car make their way to the entrance of the Auschwitz concentration camp and are met by Nazi officers who are going through a selection process of sending "our people to either to work camps or to the showers, meaning to the gas chambers," Perlman described to CP. "As that selection process is going on they look up at one point and in amazement they hear first, and then they see the Christ figure, it's an iconic Jesus carrying the cross.

"You see him [in the video] from the back and they deliberate among themselves and decide to send him to the gas chambers. One of them with a smirk on his face says, 'Just another Jew.' The screen then goes to black and the words come up, 'That Jew Died for You,' followed by a scroll of some verses from Isaiah 53 about the suffering servant to just solidify the message of who we are talking about," she said.

Perlman said her group wants people who have seen the video to "come away with the understanding that all that happened in the Holocaust happened in spite of what Jesus taught when He did."

She explained, "Had he been living in Europe at that time, then He would have been one of those that went into the ovens with the rest of our people. We feel that the message through history has been that the persecutors of the Jewish people often times have been those that call themselves Christians, but we're saying that that's not only untrue, that someone who is a true Christian couldn't do that.

"God's word teaches love for the Jewish people, not hatred. Secondly, we want to make the statement that Jesus came to give hope to those who are in despair."

Scene from Jews For Jesus video, "That Jew Died For You," April 2014.

The homepage for the video provides other videos that include nine testimonies of Holocaust survivors "who have come to faith in Yeshua and Jesus."

"Their stories, and hearing from their lips I think is very powerful about how the God of Israel touched them and how in the midst of their despair they came to know Yeshua, Jesus, their Messiah," Perlman said.

When asked about what Jews for Jesus typically does in the way of outreach during Holy Week, Perlman said, "This is a time of year when we have the opportunity to bridge the divide between Jews and Christians by connecting the dots between the Last Supper and the Passover that has been part of Jewish tradition for thousands of years. For it was at the Passover Sedar that Jesus took the matsah, the unleavened bread and said, 'This is my body which is given for you,' and He took the cup of redemption and said, 'This is my blood of the new covenant shed for you.'

"We take the elements and give people an understanding of the context in which Jesus celebrated His last supper with His disciples. In doing so I think we show the Jewish root of the Christian faith for many Christians that have not really understood that until this point."
