Presentation on ‘Christ in the Passover’

Pastor Bob Jonsson invites all to hear a presentation of ‘Jews for Jesus’ at First Baptist Church on Friday, March 29 at 7 p.m. The topic will be ‘Christ in the Passover.’

‘Jews for Jesus’ is an agency that proclaims that Jesus is the Messiah of Israel and Savior of the world. The late Moishe Rosen, a Jew who has believed in Jesus for over 35 years, founded the organization. However, Dr. Rosen was quick to point out that he did not “start” Jews for Jesus. ‘Jews for Jesus’ began about 2,000 years ago, around 32 C.E., give or take a year. Jesus’ first disciples were Jewish, and there have been some Jewish people who have believed in him ever since.”

To the ‘Jews for Jesus,’ believing in Jesus makes sense in light of the Jewish Bible and in light of their experiences as “believers.”

For those who argue that Christianity contradicts the meaning of Judaism, the ‘Jews for Jesus’ say there are answers, which their representative will be happy to discuss after the presentation. Call First Baptist Church at 763-689-1173 for more information. There will be no admission charge.
