Jewish Roots of the Christian Faith

Learning about the Jewish roots of the Christian faith can broaden your understanding of Scripture, as well as deepen your walk with God.

As you learn the Jewish roots of the Christian faith and understand why God gave the Biblical festivals, why the Tabernacle and Temple were designed as they were and how it all relates to Jesus and our redemption, it brings the Bible to life in ways you never thought possible.
