Finding Messiah (with Jen Rosner)

Jesus was a Jewish rabbi, who was the savior of the world but also celebrated Passover, taught in synagogues, wore Jewish vestments and ordered his life around the Jewish, not the Christian calendar. So what happened. How did the church forget that Jesus was an observant Jew? How has Jesus’ identity as Israel long promised Messiah become such a fuzzy concept in the church? How has Christianity wandered so far from the Judaism in which it was birthed? How does this Jewish background of Jesus help us understand the NT? Join Sean and Scott as they interview Jen Rosner about her new book, Finding Messiah.

Jen Rosner is Affiliate Assistant Professor of Systematic Theology at Fuller Theological Seminary.  She also holds academic posts at the King’s University and the Messianic Jewish Theological Institute.  She is the author of 4 books and speaks widely on the the Jewish background to Christian faith.
