Aybars Uckun Interview

What a fascinating interview today!!!  Here's some info:

Aybars came to know Yeshua in a Messianic synagogue in 1997 after being raised in a Muslim home. Years later, he became involved in leadership in Messianic congregations on the East Coast. Aybars is the world's first non-Jewish Turkish Rabbi and this reflects the heart of God to bring all people back to Himself and one of our core values that everyone belongs in the family of God. Aybars and his wife, Kelly, live in Seattle, and have six children (includes two sets of twins!!).

Enjoy great music from Miqedem, Joshua Aaron, Debbie Chernoff, Paul Wilbur, Deborah Kline & Vince Iantorno and Heartcry of David!

Joel Chernoff - Back on Bagels and Blessings!

I was delighted to have another interview with Joel!  His parents, Martin and Yohanna Chernoff, were pioneers in the Messianic Movement!   

Joel Chernoff is General Secretary and CEO of Messianic Jewish Alliance of America (MJAA), the largest voice institution representing the Messianic Jewish community worldwide. He is founder and board chairman of The Joseph Project, the largest humanitarian aid importer in Israel, responsible for importing over $120 million worth of humanitarian aid, Executive Director of the Alliance for Israel Advocacy (AIA), the public policy arm of the MJAA, as well as Executive Director of MJAA Ethiopian Relief, which ministers to the Jews of Ethiopia and working towards their final exodus to Israel. He is also senior Vice-President of International Messianic Jewish Alliance (IMJA), which encompasses national Alliances in 16 countries.

Prior to his work with the MJAA, he was founder, composer, and lead singer for LAMB, a contemporary Messianic Jewish music group, that pioneered and popularized the genre of music known today as Messianic Praise and Worship. LAMB has recorded 12 albums that has sold hundreds of thousands of recordings with numerous songs on the Top 10 Contemporary Christian Music charts in the1970s and 80s. He and his wife, Myriam Levy Chernoff, live in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania.

Marshall Beeber Interview

The Lord keeps giving me new people to interview!  Today's show features GREAT music and a fascinating and fun interview with Marshall Beeber.  

In his words:

My name is Marshall Beeber. I am a Messianic Jew (Hebrew Christian), now in my early seventies, married and the father of a lovely daughter. I am a Messianic poet. I started writing poetry in my teens, but did not write God centered poetry until my early thirties. My journey in life as a Messianic Jew has been one of discovering the Lord's wonderful love for me, a love independent of my own works, be they good or bad. I understood the "Doctrine of Grace" early on as a believer, but truly did not trust His grace until I reached middle age. I finally came to a "heart knowledge" of the Lord's grace after going through various family sorrows and career changes. The lessons learned are far from over, as Yeshua (Jesus) continues to show me how His "grace" will see me through every obstacle in life.

In 1997 I created an Internet website for Messianic Jewish and supportive Christian poets called the Messianic Poetry Corner. It has now become The Messianic Literary Corner (http://www.messianic-literary.com) , a "grace oriented" website offering teaching, poetry, books, and music. The Messianic Literary Corner now offers the poetry of over sixty poets. I hope you will spend some time exploring the works of our talented poets soon. 


 Enjoy!

Stan Meyer Comes Back to Bagels and Blessings!

For those of you who missed Stan's first interview, I had the pleasure of speaking with him again recently.  I know you'll enjoy the GREAT music and this inspiring interview!

Stan Meyer served with Jews for Jesus since 1985, and has served as the Los Angeles and South Florida directors. He was raised in San Antonio, Texas. He prayed with his Messianic Jewish mother to receive Yeshua. Stan went on to the University of Texas where he was called to serve in Messianic ministry. In Jews for Jesus he met and married his late wife Holly. They flew to China where they adopted their daughter, Carrie-Fu. Sadly, Holly passed away in 2011 leaving him to raise his daughter as a single dad. In 2014 he married Jacqui, also a Messianic Jew. Today, the Meyers live in Phoenix where Stan is finishing his doctoral work and they serve with Tree of Life Messianic Congregation. Stan holds an MA in Intercultural Studies from Fuller Seminary and is completing his Phd in Intercultural Studies from Biola University.
