DALLAS (BP) – Everything about the Gospel is Jewish from the perspective of Messianic Southern Baptist pastor Robin David Rose.

“This Gentile thing is a Jewish thing. It’s rooted in Jewish foundations,” Rose, pastor of Adat Shalom in Dallas, told Baptist Press. He points out the Jewish roots of Jesus, the writers of Scripture, the first believers and the first church.

Art Weiner, pastor of Sanctuary Messianic in Lindenhurst, Ill., finds that the deliverance of the Israelites from bondage in Egypt and the Lord’s Last Supper “most dynamically meet” in the Passover Seder.

“The connections between the Passover Lamb and the Israelites putting the blood on the doorposts of their houses during the last plague in Exodus Chapter 12,” Weiner said, “there’s a lot of connection to Jesus taking the cup and saying this is the New Covenant in My blood.”

Rose and Weiner are among Messianic pastors holding Seders this Resurrection season for evangelism, discipleship and worship in their congregations and communities.
