The Gospel

  • Yeshua is fully God (Isaiah 9:6[H5]) and fully man
  • Yeshua died (Psalm 22:16; Isaiah 53:8; Zechariah 12:10) and rose again (Isaiah 53:10)
  • Salvation comes through faith and repentance in Yeshua
  • Sin has broken the relationship between God and man (Isaiah 59:2)

God loves the Jewish people (Deuteronomy 7:7-8)

Sin separates us from God

  • We are sinners from birth and fail to do what is right (Psalm 51:5)
  • Our thoughts and inclinations are evil (Genesis 6:5; 8:21)
  • Our hearts are incurable and our so-called righteous acts are like menstrual rags in God’s sight (Isaiah 64:6; Jeremiah 17:9).

Precedent for the incarnation  (Genesis 15:4-5; 18:1-33; 1 Samuel 3:1, 10, 21)

Substitutionary/vicarious atonement (i.e., Yeshua the Messiah died in our place and for us) (Exodus 12 and Leviticus 16 with Isaiah 53:4-6; Leviticus 17:11)

Yeshua is the rightful heir to David’s throne (Is 9:7[6]; Zech 9:9)

God the Father separate from God the Son (Genesis 19:24; Daniel 7:9-14)
