What are some Jewish objections to believing in Jesus? Today I had a great discussion with Messianic Rabbi Ron Goldberg. It was great to have him back in the studio! Ron was raised in a Jewish family in New York City. He began sneaking out to church during his senior year of High School. A friend then gave him the “forbidden” New Testament to read and Ron soon discovered that Jesus really is the Jewish Messiah. After coming to faith in Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) his parents thought about having a funeral for him. Instead they sent him to a rabbi for deprogramming and intensive counseling!
Ron's relationship with his parents was very difficult for several years
but giving them grandchildren helped restore their relationship. Ron
and his wife Vinu are an inter-faith couple with 5 children.
28 years Ron has served at Messianic Congregations and spoken at
churches and Bible study groups teaching Christians about the Jewish
roots of our faith and how to share the Good News of the Messiah with
Jewish people. Every week he reaches out to students on college campuses
in Tampa Bay. Also on Thursdays Ron co-hosts a Bi-Lingual Radio Show on
Today's program also features new music from Corry Bell/Lev Shelo and Misha Goetz!
