The concept of Messiah is a Jewish concept rooted in the words of the Biblical prophets. Jews have been waiting for Messiah to come for centuries. Christianity was born out of the Jewish Messianic hope but Christians believe that the Messiah has already come in the form of Jesus and are waiting for his second coming. What are the differences between the Jewish and Christian beliefs regarding Messiah and are there any commonalities between them?
Sondra Oster Baras, an Orthodox Jew who has devoted her life to reaching out to Christians all over the world to bless Israel, presents a Jewish perspective on Messiah while her colleague Kim Troup, US Director of CFOIC Heartland, and Tommy Waller, Director of HaYovel, both Christian Zionists, explain how their attitudes towards Messiah differ from the Jewish one. You will be encouraged by the atmosphere of love and respect that permeates this interesting discussion on a critical issue that divides Christianity and Judaism.
