Phil Robertson of A&E’s Duck Dynasty

Spend a fun filled evening with the Duck Commander himself, Phil Robertson, and other stars from the mega hit show, A&E’s Duck Dynasty. They’ll share heartwarming and hysterical stories about filming the show, what goes on behind the scenes, their lives, their faith, their family, and ducks. The event will be unscripted and unrehearsed, so who knows what tales of trials, tribulations and triumphs will be told! They’ll be joined by special musical guests who’ll provide their own special brand of toe tapping fun. Celebrate the simple. Laugh with us. Smile with us. Tap your toes with us. And as Phil says, get “HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY.”

Ancient Traditions Bring New Life

The Jewish Lemba of Zimbabwe are known for carrying Kohanim genes. They have not intermarried and have been isolated for years maintaining ancient Israelite customs. When the Lemba chief and headmen accepted Yeshua, a great door opened to spread the Good News — even to the Muslim Lemba who are being saved and renouncing Islam. The first MJBI graduation among the Jewish Lemba took place in July. Thirty-nine graduated, and…

Yeshua: The Eternal Memra

By Raymond L. Gannon, Ph.D. MJBI Vice-President for Academic Affairs It has always been easily recognized by Spirit-quickened believers that Yeshua is the Eternal Word of God, Ever-Present with the Father, and that He is the Agency for divine actions past, present, and future. But this truth, after many centuries, is now being rediscovered in Jewish academic circles as well. Christian students of Scripture have long acknowledged “theophanies” in the…

5 Ways to Bless the Jewish People

By Bonnie Saul Wilks, Senior Writer, MJBI I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed (Genesis 12:3). Sadly, the fragmented branches of Christianity have taken the Church so far from its root that some believers are shaken to the core to discover the Jewishness of Jesus. He was raised as a Jew, keeping the laws of Torah, remembering the feasts, and honoring the patriarchs who burned with faith and love for the God of Israel. Christianity is deeply rooted in the Jewish faith. Profoundly faithful Jewish men penned the Scripture by the anointing of the Holy Spirit. The Ten Commandments are the rule of law for Western civilization. Society unwittingly strives to…

For Zion’s Sake

Jewish people around the world will enter into a period of time this fall called the High Holy Days. These are three Jewish feasts filled with soberness, repentance, fasting, celebration, and feasting. Although non-Jews are not biblically bound to celebrate these holidays, there is much richness to glean in studying them, understanding what they foreshadow, and seeing Yeshua, the Messiah of Israel and the nations, in their fulfillment. As we approach this season, may we join our elder brother in support and wonder as the days turn in cycle. They usher in both solemnity and joy as we learn to keep and appreciate God’s appointed times. This issue of Zealous is chocked-full of good things! We have an academic article from Dr. Raymond Gannon, MJBI Vice President for Academic Affairs, which will…

Joy is a Serious Thing

Drugs, sex, and rock-and-roll once controlled the life of the wildly-popular Duck Commander, Phil Robertson, from the mega-hit show, A & E’s Duck Dynasty. Attending LSU on a football scholarship, Phil had a bright future but made devastating life choices, slipping far away from reality, home, and family. At the lowest point when Robertson asked his wife and children to leave, he remembered the story of salvation he had heard in a bar. The message of forgiveness came to life as Phil embraced Jesus and turned over a new leaf with God and his family. After dedicating his life to the Lord, one of Phil’s greatest tests came when he discovered some men stealing fish on his property. So angry, Robertson was ready to unload a shotgun on the intruders. But…

Eye Witnesses to the Redemption of Israel

I just returned from a retreat in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, for congregational leaders sponsored by Jewish Voice Ministries. I was privileged to participate with our Chairman, Jonathan Bernis, and some 30 leaders of five congregations, all of whom are MJBI graduates. Afterward, we had time alone with the key MJBI leadership from four different cities in Ethiopia. We talked about challenges and vision and made plans for the future. It was a great time of building unity and purpose. I left with a new fire inside of me for the ripe harvest among the “outcasts of Israel” that remain in Ethiopia. Below is the testimony of an MJBI graduate, Daniel Diriba. You will be inspired to read how young Ethiopian Jewish men are rising to the task of spreading the…
