  1. “Avi, he wasn’t a pagan, but I can understand why you would think he was.”

    I can’t. I mean, I can understand if Avi believes Jesus wasn’t the Messiah, but there’s nothing (from my point of view) in the New Testament that suggests the Jewish Rabbi from Nazareth was pagan. But as I’m sure you well know, the Orthodox Jewish perspective of Jesus is highly skewed and not based on the New Testament record in the slightest.

    With all due respect to Avi and after all the bookstore was his space, he’d be taking a chance if he said to me that my Jewish wife should never have married me, but that’s probably a male, testosterone response. ;-)

    I’ve been in Jewish bookstores before (in Southern California and Seattle) but never alone, so it always looked like Jewish friends were helping me along.

    Looking forward to your next installment.

    1. Lol James, I hadn’t considered the testosterone response. Apparently I was well balanced on my estrogen because I stayed quite calm. Actually, he was very personable. I’ll give more detail next time.

  2. The veil combined with centuries of misinformation-so sad…..we, as Messianic believers get quite the looks as we frequent the local Jewish businesses and even synagogues for lecture series. As of yet, we haven’t been approached as to why we are there-would love the dialogue-perhaps some day!

    Sadly the same could be said of the perspective of a large number of christians. How different the “church” Jesus can be from the Jesus portrayed in scripture. And it is that different Jesus that often skews the perspective of non-believers whose only image of Jesus is that they see portrayed by the church.
