Restoring the Church’s Jewish Roots

To move forward, we must understand the past, says rabbi


LONGWOOD, FLâ€" Throughout history Jew and Gentile have been unaware that their destinies are linked, some say inexplicably so. In the midst of a historical-chaos we see a finely tuned plan emerge, one that is called the â€?"mystery of God,” through which the Jew and Gentile are caught in a delicate balance of prophetic significance. Restoring the Ancient Paths: Jew and Gentileâ€"Two Destinies, Inexplicably Linked  ($16.99, paperback, 9781612154152) by Felix Halpern surveys the profiles of both Jews and Gentiles and reveals that the church is being disentangled from her history of anti-Semitism to be without spot or wrinkle, but also to discover her final mandateâ€"â€?"All Israel.”

A book of â€?"restoring rights and reclaiming what has been stolen,” Restoring the Ancient Paths builds precept upon precept, leading readers to discover the biblical basis for the link between God's Chosen People and the nations, Israel’s role in the kingdom to come, and how the early church separated from the Jews.

"The Jewish people have survived the most horrific of episodes throughout human history,” says Halpern, a messianic rabbi and son of a Holocaust survivor. â€?"In my book you’ll learn the five supernatural reasons (Laws of Zion) that made their survival possible. To move forward, we must understand the past as it pertains to the Jewish people and their historical relationship to the church. Restoring the Ancient Paths boldly goes where others have not.” Halpern is the leader of Beth Chofesh messianic congregation and serves as the nationally appointed missionary to the Jewish people and president of the National Jewish Fellowship of the Assemblies of God.
