What is Supersessionism?

Dr. Ray Gannon explains Supersessionism, or Replacement Theology, in this YouTube video. In a nutshell, this philosophy that is rampant in some Christian circles believes that God’s promises are no longer for the Jewish People, but rather have been made exclusive to the Gentiles. This false teaching has caused havoc in the Jewish community and has damaged the cause of Yeshua (Jesus).

I am in Jewish ministry because of the powerful theological nemesis that was entirely fabricated by Christian leaders to satisfy their own humanly motivated agendas quite apart from the interests and revelation of God in Scripture. This nemesis to the Kingdom of God is called supersessionism. It is commonly termed Replacement Theology. (more…)

Three Troubling Theologies

In a recent vision meeting for the staff of Jewish Voice, President and CEO Jonathan Bernis offered these three challenges to Messianic Jewish ministry. Each of these theological stances hinders the introduction of Jewish People to their Messiah Yeshua, and each of these has found prevalence in the Christian church at some point in history. We list these to make you aware of some philosophies that may be creeping into your places of worship that should cause concern.

Replacement Theology—This is the doctrine that Jews have been replaced by the Church—that God no longer is interested in saving Jewish People, nor does He have a plan for them—because of the idea that Jews originally rejected Jesus. While the majority of the first century church was composed of Jews, it was the Jewish leadership that rejected Jesus. Because of this, replacement theology says that the promises originally meant for Israel have now been transferred to the Church. References to Israel are simply spiritual, and no longer refer to a people or a Land. To believe in replacement theology makes God out to be a liar and unfaithful. Simply put, He is not! (more…)

Banner Day at Manipur Medical Clinic

By Jonathan Gannon,
Jewish Voice Director of Global Outreach

Day two of our medical mission in Manipur proves to be encouraging, as Jonathan shares in this email from India.

Shalom from Churachandpur, Manipur!

As I write this, our Manipur 2010 outreach team is recovering from our second full clinic day. We are already very tired, but very pleased with the results. In the past two days, 2,030 patients have been treated, and of those 763 have visited the Prayer Room.

The high Prayer Room numbers are attributed to the fact that this community is more than  70% Christian. In spite of the high Believer numbers, Rabbi Jack Zimmerman and the prayer team have reported 35 new salvations, numerous rededications, and scores of miracles. The Lord is at work!

Although the India outreach team only consists of 26 Jewish Voice medical volunteers and staff, the efficient design of the clinic, the assistance of the local medical professionals that we hired, and the Lord’s direct help have resulted in a great start. Dr. Everett Holley has worked diligently over the past two days refining the clinic systems, ensuring that we maximize our clinic patient treatment potential. At the current pace, we project that we will well exceed our original 5,000 patients treated goal for the week. (more…)

Should I Convert to Messianic Judaism?

By Jonathan Bernis,
President and CEO of Jewish Voice

I personally don’t believe in a conversion to Messianic Judaism. I believe in a change of heart. Biblically, conversion means “to turn” toward God. But there are many kinds of turnings. For instance, when an anti-Semite becomes a Christian and finds out that Jesus was a Jew and begins to love and appreciate the Jewish people, that’s, in a sense, a turning.

God may be giving you a love for and a commitment to the Jewish People, and that’s a wonderful revelation. The blindness is coming off of your eyes. Jews have a blindness that keeps them from recognizing Yeshua (Jesus) as their Messiah; and many in the church have a blindness that keeps them from understanding their Jewish roots and God’s plan for Israel because they have bought into replacement theology.

Gentile Believers Not Second Class

By Jack Zimmerman,
Staff Evangelist at Jewish Voice

Terry from Colorado Springs asks via email, “What’s the best way for me to pray for my daughter and minister to her? She was once a Believer in Yeshua, but she has converted to Reformed Judaism.” Messianic Rabbi Jack Zimmerman answers this webcast viewer’s heartfelt question during the July 22, 2010 interactive Jewish Voice webcast.

Terry, in your message you mentioned that your daughter was a Spirit-filled Christian, which means she is someone who in every way wanted to have a relationship with Yeshua.

I am wondering if one of the reasons why she went into Reformed Judaism is that she somehow felt that as a Gentile she was less than or second class and wanted to be part of the Chosen. (more…)
