MARTIN FROMM, ministry leader of Beth Yeshua in Plainview, Long Island, NY , a fellowship of Jews and Gentiles who together worship the one true Messiah, Jesus Christ, will be joined by his close friends RICHARD SAXON, former pastor of Beth Yeshua-House of Jesus in West Sayville, Long Island, NY, and his brother BOB SAXON, who along with Richard is a Gentile actively involved in evangelizing the Jewish people with the Gospel of Christ, to address the theme: "JEW & GENTILE: ONE IN THE BLOOD OF CHRIST."
Speaking of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Apostle Paul wrote to the Church in Ephesus: "For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us" (Ephes. 2:14). Today, Marty, Richie and Bob will explore the deep implications of this passage and related texts in the Scriptures which speak of Jew and Gentile being made one people as a result of Christ's sacrifice on Calvary's cross.
The Jewish Fast Day, TISHA B'AV, which commemorates the destruction of the First and Second Temples in Jerusalem, will also be briefly addressed. Tisha B'Av begins this Saturday, August 9th at sundown.
Marty is also the author of FOR UNTO US A SON IS GIVEN: A Closer Look at the Biblical Foundation for the Messiaship of Jesus and A JOURNEY INTO FAITH: The Schlepp from Moses to Jesus (see http://www.bethyeshuany.org/html/publications.html). Marty was raised in a Jewish home in a very anti-Semitic neighborhood in the Bronx, NY, where as a child he was regularly mocked and beaten for being a Jew. Growing up to hate the name of Jesus Christ even in adulthood because of the false perception he had of what "Christianity" was and who "Christians" were, Marty eventually came to fall in love with the One he once hated after joining his wife at a weekly Bible study led by a Jewish believer in Christ, and embraced Him as his Messiah.
