Ancient Jewish Cessationists

Ancient Jewish Cessationists

What Yeshua Quoted

What Yeshua Quoted

  Note from the Editor: I wrote this note to Kevin: “In an article I was reading recently, the author says that Yeshua likely read and quoted from the Septuagint.

Anti-Semitism in the Church, by Kevin Williams

As we begin this topic on anti-Semitism in the church, the body of Christ, please understand that at times I may sound harsh. I am not harsh.
