About this DVD
Judaism and Christianity. Two spiritual points of view that seem worlds apart—but it hasn’t always been that way! In this 3-part series, you’ll learn about the rich heritage of the Christian faith, which is grounded in the same Old Testament Scriptures as Judaism.
You’ll be guided through the Jewish roots of Christianity by three men who are Jewish by birth, but followers of Jesus by choice. Meno Kalisher is a pastor in Jerusalem, Avner Boskey serves as a worship leader and tour guide in Israel, and Michael Rydelnik is a professor of Jewish Studies at the Moody Bible Institute. Along with host Mart De Haan, they’ll take you on an amazing journey to see the birthplace of the Christian church in Jerusalem and the very pools where the first 3,000 followers of Christ were baptized. Their lively discussion will offer fresh insight into the religious dynamics experienced by the first Christians, and will deepen your own understanding of the Scriptures. Join us as we venture into the Jewish Roots of Christianity, a 3-part series.
We watched this documentary as a small group. There are three parts to it, each about 25 minutes. We all found it insightful and would recommend it for upper high school students and adults. A great study group DVD. The commentaries from the three Messianic Jews in the film shed light into how and why we as Christians have a Jewish background. Some of the discussion focused on their understanding of the trinity and relationship with the Messiah, their Yeshua and our Jesus.
