Alan Dershowitz Throws Stones at Jews for Jesus. Does He Live in a Glass House?

Alan Dershowitz wrote:
By this time, everyone knows that Jews for Jesus are not really Jews. They are Christians using the cover of their Jewish origin to fool people into coming to their proselytizing services.

Actually Alan, they use the Tanakh. It's not "Believe in Jesus. I'm Jewish." It's "Believe in Jesus. It's true. And it's a perfectly Jewish thing to do."

Now, as far as I can recall, Alan Dershowitz does not believe in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. He does not believe in the inspiration of the prophets. Jewish believers in Jesus do.

God's Promises, the Messiah, and Christmas

Christmas is about the first coming of the Messiah. It is about the fulfillment of a series of promises that God made.

R.C. Sproul had very good broadcasts on this topic this week. Follow the link above to listen to them. They should be posted for a little while.

Dr. Sproul discusses the promises to Eve, Abraham, Judah, Jeremiah, and Isaiah. It is interesting to notice the progression of the promise of the Messiah as pieces of the puzzle fell into place over time.
