Yeshua Matters is the story of a pastor who discovers that Jesus Christ was not just a Jewish person, but a practicing Jew, a teacher of Judaism - a rabbi, known during his earthly ministry as Rabbi Yeshua of Nazareth.
Yet despite this emerging scholarly consensus, Jesus has lost his Jewishness in the collective heart and mind of the church. We simply don't imagine, interpret, or follow him as a part of the broader tapestry of Jewish life and history.
If the author is correct, then the root of modern Christianity's maladies is not disconnection between generations, conflict over worship styles, doctrinal differences, or a failure to keep up with cultural trends, but is instead a failure to apprehend and embrace the historical figure of Jesus.
What would change if the church were to rediscover that at the very center of its faith stands a practitioner of Judaism? What would change if the Christian world were to rally around a risen Rabbi?
What would change if we all realized that Jesus' Jewishness changes everything - that Yeshua matters?

I recently joined a Messianic Jewish congregation in the Boston area. I am a gentile Christian and I have struggled to understand the real Jesus -- Yeshua. After 2,000 years of drifting farther away from the life and times of Yeshua it can seem an impossible task to recover the essentials of His ministry. Did Yeshua abolish the Jewish Law? Are Israel still the people of promise? When will Israel recognize Yeshua as the Messiah? These questions can only be answered by understanding the historical, Jewish Jesus. For me, this journey began with a simple understanding: Jesus IS Jewish. This book is a good introduction to understanding Jesus from the Messianic perspective and I hope it will transform your walk with Yeshua.

I think this is a wonderfully insightful book !
I think this is a wonderfully insightful book that every Christian should read. the intimacy that this very thing Journey has brought into my own life is beyond words for even a review but I highly encourage those who want to know their Messiah Yeshua more intimately to read this book.

Great book for those brave enough to seek the truth.
This is a great book to start you on your journey of seeking the truth. I thoroughly enjoyed this book as it confirmed many things that I already learned myself about our Rabbi Yeshua. I recommend this book to all Christians but please do not stop with this book, keep searching until your knowledge of Yeshua is as great as your faith in him.
