Ted Pearce - 5th time is a charm

So great to have Ted back on the program.   He has just produced a new project, "Songs of the Rabbi," and we had a great time talking about it!

Ted is a world-renown Messianic recording artist who in 2011, produced his first independent project in a decade called "emergency" with Dallas Producer Phil York. In August of 2012, the March of Life went to Poland, where Ted met Polish soul-singer and superstar Mietek Szczesniak, who introduced him to the unusually good fortune of working with Producer Wendy Waldman in California, which led to an opportunity to work with Polish Producer and Pianist-extraordinaire, Pawel Zarecki (and his incredibly talented wife, Jadzia) which led to working with the Longhouse Crew, which led to meeting and working with Israeli Producer/Guitarist/Singer Jamie Hilsden. Working with these friends in Warsaw, Hollywood, and Jerusalem was the inspiration and foundation of the Cultural Xchange Series recording sessions. 

"Warsaw Sessions" was originally released in Tubingen Germany (March 2014) followed by Hollywood Sessions (Nov 2014) and Jerusalem Sessions (June 2015). Warsaw and Jerusalem sessions were combined and released as "Cultural Xchange" in January 2018.

Rabbi Ron Goldberg Again!!

Back by popular demand, one of my FAVORITE guests ever!!!!   My brother from another mother -- Rabbi Ron Goldberg!   Always a blast to have him in the studio!   Today's show is a recap of his amazing testimony and the joy of discovering the Jewish Jesus!!

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. 

For over 25 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 the Tampa Bay Area.
