“It’s pretty life-changing. Yeshua Jesus,. The places, where he was, what he accomplished, what he did for me. To understand the Jewishness of Jesus, to walk where he was, and what he saw.

Rabbi Jason does a wonderful job explaining the New Testament, how it correlates with the Old Testament, the beauty of the Gospels, and how they’re all integrated into the Old Testament.”

“We are in Jerusalem! Where Jesus died over there, carried the cross, and rose again. What Jesus has gone through is for my sins and the sins of the world. I wanted to come here for so long. I can’t really believe i’m here. Jesus Lives in my heart because he died for me on the cross here. When I go back, the world will know. I will tell them all about what I have learned here, my pastors, family, friends, and neighbors.”

“One of the many things that God surprised me with this week is the magnitude of the Jewish faith and its connection to our Christian faith, and how little, even growing up in a Christian home, going to Christian college, knowing these stories from when I was young, and seeing them come to life here, connecting Old to New and the importance of the Jewish faith with my Christian faith.” – Tiana
