Go back in time with Jesus
Worship as Jesus did.
in the way Jesus did
when he was living on this earth.
Below we have responsive readings that Jesus
would have spoken when he was here on earth.
The service below is a Messianic church
which means that this Jewish church
believes Jesus is the Messiah!
Yes, they believe that Jesus is our Lord and Savior.
Note: Yeshua is Hebrew for the name - Jesus
Many of the songs they sing in their services
are taken from the
Old Testament and often from the Psalms.
Below the video
is info to help you with questions.
I hope you enjoy experiencing the Jewish roots of Christianity.
A Messianic Service has some differences
from church services
that I have been to.
Here are some helpful pieces of information:
Adonai = Lord
The Jewish people give honor to God
by not spelling out his whole name.
So you will see G-d or L-rd.
In Old Testament times, all the psalms were put to music. We have lost the tunes over time.
The Hebrew language is written from right to left.
Shavuot = Pentecost
Pentecost is in the Old Testament in Leviticus 23:15-21.
Pentecost in the New Testament in Acts 2.
Acts 2 verse 1 says: When the day of Pentecost came...

The feast of Pentecost
is one of the 7 major feasts found in Leviticus.
Pentecost this year is May 28, 2020.
This springtime Jewish feast has many names.
It is called Shavuot.
It is also called the Feast of Weeks - that is probably because it marks the completion of a seven-week counting period between Passover and Pentecost. (The counting of the days is called the counting of the Omer.)
In the video, the Rabbi has a beautiful picture from Israel
for each day of the Omer count.
Beth hallel - House of Praise
Beth = House..... Hallel = Praise
This phrase is a greeting
that they say
to one another.
"Shabbat" is the worship day -
like "Sunday" in Christian churches.
"Shalom" means Peace.
So the phrase means:
"Peace to you this worship day."
Take Note: All Jewish days start at nightfall and go through till it gets dark on the following day. The Jewish Sabbath (worship) day starts on Friday night and goes through till it gets dark on Saturday night. This congregation has a worship service on Friday night and on Saturday morning.
Messianic Jewish Congregation
This "church" doesn't use the word "church"
but chooses to use the word "congregation."
The first song was from Psalm 150.
This website has lots of pages about Jewish information.
