May: Besorah—The Resurrection of Jerusalem and the Healing of a Fractured Gospel
May 9, 16, 23, and 30, 2021—Sundays @ 1 p.m. ET
The gospel of the death and resurrection of Yeshua lies at the heart of the New Testament and of Christian thinking but is frequently misconstrued. Indeed, as the title indicates, the gospel is fractured, because a key element has been almost universally overlooked. This class, based on an upcoming book under the same title co-authored by Dr. Mark Kinzer and Rabbi Russ Resnik, will explore the roots of the gospel, or Besorah, as first announced by Isaiah and developed in the Gospel of Luke and the Book of Acts. Luke’s Besorah links the death and resurrection of Messiah to the coming judgment and restoration of Jerusalem and the Jewish people. This linkage reveals a prophetic dimension to the Besorah, often missed in conventional presentations of the gospel, which is a key to healing its fracture and restoring its power.
