February: Encountering the Ruach (Spirit) in Jewish Space
Tuesdays, February 7, 14, 21, and 28 at 1 PM Eastern
Over the years, our Messianic Jewish community has sought to integrate Jewish life in Yeshua. We’ve discovered what our early Messianic Jewish predecessors knew from the beginning; Yeshua is the heart of our Jewish experience. When the presence of the Ruach HaKodesh fell on the disciples on Shavuot in the first century it was confirmation of the greatest Jewish hope.
Early Jewish followers of Yeshua were known for interacting in the Ruach as Jews. Yet complicated history, corruption, and disappointment have led some Messianic Jews to shy away from interacting with the Ruach. In this class, we will work to bring balance and reclaim God’s gift of the Ruach in Jewish space.
