  • 00:02:12.120 --> 00:02:15.140

  • and it's amazing, but I want you to meet someone
  • 00:02:45.020 --> 00:02:47.170
  • you may have never met her before,
  • 00:02:47.170 --> 00:02:50.060
  • but Daniah Greenberg, she and her husband, Mark,
  • 00:02:50.060 --> 00:02:53.030
  • I met them a few years ago,
  • 00:02:53.030 --> 00:02:55.010
  • and I just have to say, obviously, immediately,
  • 00:02:55.010 --> 00:02:58.060

  • 00:02:58.060 --> 00:02:59.160
  • We fell in love with the project
  • 00:02:59.160 --> 00:03:01.110
  • that God put on their heart.
  • 00:03:01.110 --> 00:03:03.010
  • This is, and just to give you a little bit,
  • 00:03:03.010 --> 00:03:05.010
  • and I'll tell you about it later
  • 00:03:05.010 --> 00:03:06.090
  • cause we're gonna make it available for you,

  • 00:03:11.070 --> 00:03:13.050
  • but I'm gonna let her tell you about it.
  • 00:03:13.050 --> 00:03:14.290
  • You're gonna be blown away,
  • 00:03:14.290 --> 00:03:16.040
  • will you please welcome Daniah Greenberg.
  • 00:03:16.040 --> 00:03:19.000
  • (audience clapping) - Thank you.
  • 00:03:19.000 --> 00:03:20.260
  • I'm so glad to be here.
  • 00:03:20.260 --> 00:03:22.080
  • Thank you.
  • 00:03:22.080 --> 00:03:23.230
  • - So, okay, so I told them a little bit about this,
  • 00:03:23.230 --> 00:03:25.150
  • The Tree of Life version,
  • 00:03:25.150 --> 00:03:26.280
  • it's already become a bestseller of a new version
  • 00:03:26.280 --> 00:03:28.210
  • of the Bible, which is amazing in just a few years.
  • 00:03:28.210 --> 00:03:31.270
  • And I'll tell the story about how I heard about it
  • 00:03:31.270 --> 00:03:33.260
  • and how Gateway Church got involved
  • 00:03:33.260 --> 00:03:35.080
  • in the King's University, but you tell,
  • 00:03:35.080 --> 00:03:38.030
  • I mean how did this come about?
  • 00:03:38.030 --> 00:03:39.150
  • What happened?
  • 00:03:39.150 --> 00:03:40.280
  • - I just wanted my kids to love the Bible
  • 00:03:40.280 --> 00:03:42.160
  • the way that I did.
  • 00:03:42.160 --> 00:03:43.240
  • I met the Lord, and I my college years,
  • 00:03:43.240 --> 00:03:46.290
  • believe it or not, in a jail cell is where I finally
  • 00:03:46.290 --> 00:03:49.150
  • gave my life to God, and I had a stolen Bible
  • 00:03:49.150 --> 00:03:53.070
  • that I first started to learn about the Lord with.
  • 00:03:53.070 --> 00:03:56.070
  • And, it really did, and I read the words that said
  • 00:03:56.070 --> 00:03:59.240
  • that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever,
  • 00:03:59.240 --> 00:04:02.200
  • and I felt like if he could save people all those years
  • 00:04:02.200 --> 00:04:06.040
  • that he had a plan for my life.
  • 00:04:06.040 --> 00:04:07.210
  • So I came to faith in college,
  • 00:04:07.210 --> 00:04:09.250
  • but then I turned right around and married a Jewish guy,
  • 00:04:09.250 --> 00:04:12.120
  • and this Jewish guy and I wanted to get married,
  • 00:04:12.120 --> 00:04:14.270
  • and we found Jonathan Burnis, friend of ours,
  • 00:04:14.270 --> 00:04:17.150
  • right, a mutual friend,
  • 00:04:17.150 --> 00:04:18.290
  • and, when we began to really look at the Jewish
  • 00:04:18.290 --> 00:04:23.030
  • roots of our faith, and my husband is a Messianic Rabbi,
  • 00:04:23.030 --> 00:04:26.130
  • I began to learn about how to study the Bible.
  • 00:04:26.130 --> 00:04:29.280
  • But then when my child came home from school and said
  • 00:04:29.280 --> 00:04:32.140
  • mom, why do the Jews hate Jesus,
  • 00:04:32.140 --> 00:04:35.060
  • I said, I stopped, like in my tracks, and I was like okay,
  • 00:04:35.060 --> 00:04:38.160
  • we have a problem,
  • 00:04:38.160 --> 00:04:40.010
  • and what I realized is that what my children were hearing,
  • 00:04:40.010 --> 00:04:42.230
  • their dad preached Messiah Yeshua,
  • 00:04:42.230 --> 00:04:45.250
  • like Messianic Rabbis do, right?
  • 00:04:45.250 --> 00:04:48.080
  • On the pulpit was not what he was reading on the page
  • 00:04:48.080 --> 00:04:52.070
  • and children if they read it on the page
  • 00:04:52.070 --> 00:04:54.190
  • the think it in their minds,
  • 00:04:54.190 --> 00:04:55.280
  • so we were creating a disparity.
  • 00:04:55.280 --> 00:04:57.210
  • So I got my little tin cup out and I went to
  • 00:04:57.210 --> 00:04:59.230
  • all my Messianic friends one by one,
  • 00:04:59.230 --> 00:05:02.070
  • and said would you please help us create
  • 00:05:02.070 --> 00:05:03.250
  • a Bible for children, and now 10 years later
  • 00:05:03.250 --> 00:05:06.150
  • there's a Messianic Jewish translation of the Bible
  • 00:05:06.150 --> 00:05:09.120
  • using Christian standard.
  • 00:05:09.120 --> 00:05:10.120
  • - And that's the key thing.
  • 00:05:10.120 --> 00:05:11.280
  • I mean you start out for children,
  • 00:05:11.280 --> 00:05:13.050
  • but it was sold for Jewish people
  • 00:05:13.050 --> 00:05:16.270
  • to be able to read the scriptures
  • 00:05:16.270 --> 00:05:19.270
  • translated by Jewish people.
  • 00:05:19.270 --> 00:05:22.100
  • - That's right, Jewish believers in Messiah Yeshua.
  • 00:05:22.100 --> 00:05:24.210
  • - And the translate is the word because
  • 00:05:24.210 --> 00:05:26.000
  • we believe the Bible is inherent,
  • 00:05:26.000 --> 00:05:27.130
  • we believe the Bible is inspired and infallible,
  • 00:05:27.130 --> 00:05:29.210
  • but what we mean by that is the original language
  • 00:05:29.210 --> 00:05:32.230
  • was the original versions, the original,
  • 00:05:32.230 --> 00:05:35.180
  • was inspired, that's why we didn't have different versions.
  • 00:05:35.180 --> 00:05:38.060
  • - [Daniah] That's right.
  • 00:05:38.060 --> 00:05:39.180
  • - I bet people say before, well Pastor Robert
  • 00:05:39.180 --> 00:05:40.260
  • why do you read from different versions?
  • 00:05:40.260 --> 00:05:42.020
  • Because they are translations.
  • 00:05:42.020 --> 00:05:44.060
  • - [Daniah] That's right.
  • 00:05:44.060 --> 00:05:45.060
  • - And there was no translation.
  • 00:05:45.060 --> 00:05:46.160
  • - [Daniah] There wasn't.
  • 00:05:46.160 --> 00:05:47.240
  • - By Jewish scholars, in other words, Jesus,
  • 00:05:47.240 --> 00:05:50.050
  • it was called Jesus because King James
  • 00:05:50.050 --> 00:05:52.240
  • and because the Greeks called, that was his name,
  • 00:05:52.240 --> 00:05:54.150
  • even James the disciples, which I named on of my sons James
  • 00:05:54.150 --> 00:05:58.180
  • and then found out later that he was actually Jacob, right?
  • 00:05:58.180 --> 00:06:01.040
  • - [Daniah] That's right!
  • 00:06:01.040 --> 00:06:02.180
  • - And it really disappointed my son
  • 00:06:02.180 --> 00:06:04.020
  • that his name wasn't really in the Bible,
  • 00:06:04.020 --> 00:06:05.110
  • that King James just put his name,
  • 00:06:05.110 --> 00:06:06.200
  • wanted his own name in the Bible, okay,
  • 00:06:06.200 --> 00:06:09.030
  • but, so for your children reading the Bible,
  • 00:06:09.030 --> 00:06:12.010
  • they were reading about Mary not Miriam.
  • 00:06:12.010 --> 00:06:15.010
  • - [Daniah] That's right.
  • 00:06:15.010 --> 00:06:16.070
  • - They're reading about James not Jacob,
  • 00:06:16.070 --> 00:06:17.140
  • and so this is kind of what happened,
  • 00:06:17.140 --> 00:06:19.030
  • and you've got all these Jewish scholars together.
  • 00:06:19.030 --> 00:06:21.120
  • - Yeah 32 of them, believe it or not.
  • 00:06:21.120 --> 00:06:23.050
  • - 32. - Yeah.
  • 00:06:23.050 --> 00:06:24.180
  • - Jewish scholars to translate the scripture
  • 00:06:24.180 --> 00:06:26.160
  • from a Jewish standpoint, yet, it is a translation
  • 00:06:26.160 --> 00:06:30.120
  • of the scripture, it is from the original documents.
  • 00:06:30.120 --> 00:06:33.260
  • - From Messianic texts, yeah,
  • 00:06:33.260 --> 00:06:35.020
  • and the 27 Nestle-Aland of the Greek.
  • 00:06:35.020 --> 00:06:37.250
  • And so when we went back and did this Bible,
  • 00:06:37.250 --> 00:06:40.200
  • so my dream was just, I mean all I wanted to do was
  • 00:06:40.200 --> 00:06:43.210
  • let's just, let's just use Messiah Yeshua
  • 00:06:43.210 --> 00:06:46.150
  • instead of the words Jesus Christ so that my kids
  • 00:06:46.150 --> 00:06:48.200
  • would understand, but then as we started the journey,
  • 00:06:48.200 --> 00:06:51.050
  • I found out that Christian Bibles have a different
  • 00:06:51.050 --> 00:06:54.110
  • order to the books, and the original Jewish order
  • 00:06:54.110 --> 00:06:56.270
  • actually ends in Chronicles not Malachi,
  • 00:06:56.270 --> 00:07:01.020
  • and when I realized that when you end in Malachi,
  • 00:07:01.020 --> 00:07:05.040
  • it ends with the words or utter destruction,
  • 00:07:06.100 --> 00:07:09.280
  • which is like a hard way to get Jewish people
  • 00:07:09.280 --> 00:07:12.080
  • to read the Bible, just for the record.
  • 00:07:12.080 --> 00:07:14.090
  • But when you restore the Jewish order of the books
  • 00:07:14.090 --> 00:07:16.240
  • to the end of Second Chronicles,
  • 00:07:16.240 --> 00:07:18.140
  • the promise of God is amazing because it's actually
  • 00:07:18.140 --> 00:07:21.170
  • King Cyrus that welcomes the Jews, right,

  • and I want you to get the Bible because it'll bless you.
  • 00:10:04.250 --> 00:10:07.100
  • When I was growing up, we had the Old King James version,
  • 00:10:07.100 --> 00:10:10.030
  • we, you know.
  • 00:10:10.030 --> 00:10:10.290
  • - [Jonathan] King Jacob.
  • 00:10:10.290 --> 00:10:12.010
  • - Yeah. (giggling)
  • 00:10:12.010 --> 00:10:13.200
  • That's right.
  • 00:10:13.200 --> 00:10:15.050
  • And I can remember when the New King James came out.
  • 00:10:15.050 --> 00:10:17.260
  • I can remember when the New American Standard came out.
  • 00:10:17.260 --> 00:10:20.110
  • I remember when the New Living Translation,
  • 00:10:20.110 --> 00:10:22.160
  • and the Living Bible was almost the same burden
  • 00:10:22.160 --> 00:10:26.030
  • that you had, he wanted to be able to read his Bible
  • 00:10:26.030 --> 00:10:28.140
  • to the children, to his children.
  • 00:10:28.140 --> 00:10:30.120
  • - That's right.
  • 00:10:30.120 --> 00:10:31.250
  • - So he never even thought it would, you know,
  • 00:10:31.250 --> 00:10:33.100
  • be produced as a Bible, he just wanted his children
  • 00:10:33.100 --> 00:10:34.110
  • to learn the Bible.
  • 00:10:34.110 --> 00:10:35.090
  • And so, yeah the Living Bible,
  • 00:10:35.090 --> 00:10:37.260
  • then the New Living Bible,
  • 00:10:38.230 --> 00:10:39.270
  • and the Living Bible's a paraphrase,
  • 00:10:39.270 --> 00:10:41.280
  • but the New Living then became a translation.
  • 00:10:41.280 --> 00:10:44.130
  • - [Daniah] Right.
  • 00:10:44.130 --> 00:10:45.200
  • - Which means we go back to the original.
  • 00:10:45.200 --> 00:10:47.110
  • So what's exciting is to read a new version of the Bible
  • 00:10:47.110 --> 00:10:51.020
  • because here's what I think we do sometimes,
  • 00:10:51.020 --> 00:10:53.060
  • when we open up our Bible to read and we start
  • 00:10:53.060 --> 00:10:55.260
  • reading something, our mind says I've read this before.
  • 00:10:55.260 --> 00:10:59.150
  • - [Daniah] Fills in the blanks.
  • 00:10:59.150 --> 00:11:00.150
  • - And if we're not careful,
  • 00:11:00.150 --> 00:11:01.220
  • we start thinking about, you know,
  • 00:11:01.220 --> 00:11:03.150
  • I need to pick up those clothes from the dry cleaners
  • 00:11:03.150 --> 00:11:05.190
  • cause they've been there seven weeks now,
  • 00:11:05.190 --> 00:11:07.180
  • and I keep forgetting, and I need to get the oil changed,
  • 00:11:07.180 --> 00:11:10.260
  • cause it's been 27.000 miles, not 5000 miles,
  • 00:11:10.260 --> 00:11:14.020
  • and our mind wanders, but we're still reading,
  • 00:11:14.020 --> 00:11:16.260
  • and we close our Bible, go to sleep,
  • 00:11:16.260 --> 00:11:19.030
  • and don't have the slightest idea what we just read.
  • 00:11:19.030 --> 00:11:21.110
  • But when we get a new version, to me.
  • 00:11:21.110 --> 00:11:23.290
  • - [Daniah] Yeah.
  • 00:11:23.290 --> 00:11:24.240
  • - It captivates me.
  • 00:11:24.240 --> 00:11:26.030
  • That's what the Tree of Life version did for me.
  • 00:11:26.030 --> 00:11:27.270
  • So here, Jonathan you're sitting here,
  • 00:11:27.270 --> 00:11:30.030
  • you're a Messianic Rabbi,
  • 00:11:30.030 --> 00:11:31.260
  • you're an author, you're, I'm gonna say this,
  • 00:11:31.260 --> 00:11:34.110
  • and you'll understand how I'm saying it,
  • 00:11:34.110 --> 00:11:35.280
  • you're known really as a leader around the world,
  • 00:11:35.280 --> 00:11:38.280
  • and that's something God does,
  • 00:11:38.280 --> 00:11:40.110
  • that's not something you or I feel proud about,
  • 00:11:40.110 --> 00:11:43.110
  • we just know God gives us a platform to use it.
  • 00:11:43.110 --> 00:11:45.250
  • - Right.
  • 00:11:45.250 --> 00:11:47.000
  • - So from the platform God's given you,
  • 00:11:47.000 --> 00:11:48.130
  • I mean what do you think about the Tree of Life version
  • 00:11:48.130 --> 00:11:51.000
  • of the Bible and this process of, you know,
  • 00:11:51.000 --> 00:11:53.260
  • Jewish translation?
  • 00:11:53.260 --> 00:11:54.260
  • - Well it's crucial.
  • 00:11:54.260 --> 00:11:56.150
  • As you've said, I mean, rightfully,
  • 00:11:56.150 --> 00:11:58.140
  • the Bible's under attack, number one,
  • 00:11:58.140 --> 00:12:00.120
  • and the other thing we're talking about is
  • 00:12:00.120 --> 00:12:01.250
  • what has been separated, what's been lost.
  • 00:12:01.250 --> 00:12:03.220
  • You know, ever believer, I mean true believer,
  • 00:12:03.220 --> 00:12:06.070
  • loves Jesus, loves Yeshua, so, the more,
  • 00:12:06.070 --> 00:12:09.070
  • when you bring back these things, you're bringing back
  • 00:12:09.070 --> 00:12:11.100
  • this is part of him, you know?
  • 00:12:11.100 --> 00:12:13.120
  • So, I mean we have people come out on Friday nights
  • 00:12:13.120 --> 00:12:16.040
  • or something, it's because they love,
  • 00:12:16.040 --> 00:12:17.170
  • it's not just cause they, they want everything
  • 00:12:17.170 --> 00:12:19.070
  • they can about the Lord, so these are,
  • 00:12:19.070 --> 00:12:21.050
  • it's like putting back what has been lost.
  • 00:12:21.050 --> 00:12:22.280
  • So it's part of what has to be, I mean these are days of,
  • 00:12:22.280 --> 00:12:26.000
  • while in the world things are going crazy,
  • 00:12:26.000 --> 00:12:27.280
  • you know, the end times are, you have dark,
  • 00:12:27.280 --> 00:12:30.020
  • but you have light too, you know, it's polarization.
  • 00:12:30.020 --> 00:12:32.080
  • So, on the same time God is restoring.
  • 00:12:32.080 --> 00:12:34.210
  • Restoring Israel, he's restoring aspects of the church,
  • 00:12:34.210 --> 00:12:38.260
  • and he is restoring his word,
  • 00:12:38.260 --> 00:12:40.170
  • so it's bringing back these things.
  • 00:12:40.170 --> 00:12:42.040
  • I mean, to me, I'm blessed to open up a Bible,
  • 00:12:42.040 --> 00:12:44.080
  • I mean, listen, Jesus, the name is fine,
  • 00:12:44.080 --> 00:12:46.070
  • but his real name was Yeshua, I mean that's not,
  • 00:12:46.070 --> 00:12:48.020
  • we didn't make it up.
  • 00:12:48.020 --> 00:12:49.120
  • So it brings the riches of these things,
  • 00:12:49.120 --> 00:12:51.160
  • so it's part of the restoration, like,
  • 00:12:51.160 --> 00:12:53.030
  • we're talking about everything coming back together,
  • 00:12:53.030 --> 00:12:55.000
  • that's part of it too.
  • 00:12:55.000 --> 00:12:56.060
  • So it's a tremendous thing,
  • 00:12:56.060 --> 00:12:58.020
  • and for everybody who loves the Lord,
  • 00:12:58.020 --> 00:12:59.280
  • this is, you know, they want everything about him.
  • 00:12:59.280 --> 00:13:02.080
  • You know, so you can't have Jesus and divorce
  • 00:13:02.080 --> 00:13:05.120
  • everything about Jesus which is his family,
  • 00:13:05.120 --> 00:13:07.130
  • which is his roots, and it's your heritage too.
  • 00:13:07.130 --> 00:13:09.200
  • - Yeah, I was serving on the board of
  • 00:13:09.200 --> 00:13:12.130
  • The King's University,
  • 00:13:12.130 --> 00:13:13.250
  • university that Dr. Jack Hayford founded.
  • 00:13:13.250 --> 00:13:16.140
  • And I just spent a day with Pastor Jack
  • 00:13:16.140 --> 00:13:19.050
  • just a few weeks ago, and anyway,
  • 00:13:19.050 --> 00:13:21.190
  • he heard about it, and one of the things I think
  • 00:13:21.190 --> 00:13:24.040
  • that the way he heard about it was that y'all were asking
  • 00:13:24.040 --> 00:13:26.280
  • the King's University to be like an endorsing university
  • 00:13:26.280 --> 00:13:31.080
  • for the version. - Right.
  • 00:13:31.080 --> 00:13:32.150
  • - But in the process, somewhere along the line
  • 00:13:32.150 --> 00:13:35.270
  • it came that you still needed about $250.000
  • 00:13:35.270 --> 00:13:39.040
  • to complete the manuscript.
  • 00:13:39.040 --> 00:13:42.040
  • And so he felt strong, Pastor Jack has just done
  • 00:13:42.040 --> 00:13:45.290
  • this a long time, I just wanna try to go to my friends now,
  • 00:13:45.290 --> 00:13:49.260
  • take my tin cup like you did,
  • 00:13:49.260 --> 00:13:51.260
  • and see if we can do that.
  • 00:13:51.260 --> 00:13:53.020
  • So he came to the board, and he said I'd like
  • 00:13:53.020 --> 00:13:54.270
  • for the King's University to do this,
  • 00:13:54.270 --> 00:13:56.100
  • but I don't want anyone here, you don't have to do it,
  • 00:13:56.100 --> 00:13:58.120
  • we don't have to do a money project,
  • 00:13:58.120 --> 00:14:00.060
  • I just feel like I could call some people.
  • 00:14:00.060 --> 00:14:02.120
  • Well when he said that,
  • 00:14:02.120 --> 00:14:03.290
  • I thought well we wanna be apart at Gateway Church.
  • 00:14:03.290 --> 00:14:06.120
  • - Praise God.
  • 00:14:06.120 --> 00:14:07.100
  • - So I went back to the elders,
  • 00:14:07.100 --> 00:14:08.180
  • and the elders, and we're all gentiles,
  • 00:14:08.180 --> 00:14:10.230
  • but the elders, well, in true faith.
  • 00:14:10.230 --> 00:14:14.110
  • - [Daniah] Grafted in.
  • 00:14:14.110 --> 00:14:15.060
  • - We got grafted in.
  • 00:14:15.060 --> 00:14:16.010
  • But by birth gentile.
  • 00:14:16.010 --> 00:14:17.150
  • By second birth, Jewish. - [Daniah] Yes.
  • 00:14:18.240 --> 00:14:21.140
  • - So, but our elders said, man what a blessing
  • 00:14:21.140 --> 00:14:25.160
  • to be able to get involved with this,
  • 00:14:25.160 --> 00:14:26.190
  • let's just do the whole thing.
  • 00:14:26.190 --> 00:14:28.080
  • - [Daniah] That was amazing.
  • 00:14:28.080 --> 00:14:29.060
  • - And so Gateway Church, yeah,
  • 00:14:29.060 --> 00:14:30.200
  • we just donated the last quarter of a million dollars
  • 00:14:30.200 --> 00:14:32.140
  • that you needed to be able to get involved in this,
  • 00:14:32.140 --> 00:14:34.290
  • and I can remember when I got a copy,
  • 00:14:34.290 --> 00:14:37.020
  • and you gave it to me personally,
  • 00:14:37.020 --> 00:14:38.160
  • when I got a copy of it, I started reading
  • 00:14:38.160 --> 00:14:40.290
  • and I couldn't put it down.
  • 00:14:40.290 --> 00:14:42.100
  • It's like, you know, I've read this before.
  • 00:14:42.100 --> 00:14:45.020
  • - Right?
  • 00:14:45.020 --> 00:14:45.270
  • - I recognize this.
  • 00:14:45.270 --> 00:14:46.280
  • - [Daniah] Right?
  • 00:14:46.280 --> 00:14:48.140
  • - But I didn't think about it in that way.
  • 00:14:48.140 --> 00:14:50.170
  • - [Daniah] That's right.
  • 00:14:50.170 --> 00:14:51.190
  • - So it's phenomenal.
  • 00:14:51.190 --> 00:14:52.170
  • - That's a great way to say it.
  • 00:14:52.170 --> 00:14:54.000
  • That's a great way to say it.
  • 00:14:54.000 --> 00:14:54.280
  • When you guys invited, you know,
  • 00:14:54.280 --> 00:14:57.020
  • when Pastor Jack invited me to share with him my heart
  • 00:14:57.020 --> 00:15:00.270
  • it was because I knew,
  • 00:15:00.270 --> 00:15:03.040
  • I had one of those Ester moments,
  • 00:15:03.040 --> 00:15:04.150
  • I can remember it like it was yesterday.
  • 00:15:04.150 --> 00:15:06.220
  • I had been, I'm asking the Lord what do I do,
  • 00:15:06.220 --> 00:15:09.010
  • we got the New Testament done, but we had no money
  • 00:15:09.010 --> 00:15:11.110
  • to do the Old Testament.
  • 00:15:11.110 --> 00:15:12.260
  • And by now I've got the whole community's excited,
  • 00:15:12.260 --> 00:15:15.100
  • and every conference I went to,
  • 00:15:15.100 --> 00:15:16.220
  • so Daniah, when are you gonna finish the Bible,
  • 00:15:16.220 --> 00:15:18.120
  • so when's the Bible gonna get done?
  • 00:15:18.120 --> 00:15:19.250
  • And I'm smiling and there's like a lot left to do,
  • 00:15:19.250 --> 00:15:24.000
  • and I wasn't sure what to do,
  • 00:15:24.000 --> 00:15:25.160
  • so I prayed about it, and I went to see Rabbi Dan Juster,
  • 00:15:25.160 --> 00:15:27.270
  • a friend of yours, a friend of mine,
  • 00:15:27.270 --> 00:15:30.010
  • and I said Rabbi Dan, I said I believe
  • 00:15:30.010 --> 00:15:32.260
  • I really need to reach out and I said,
  • 00:15:32.260 --> 00:15:35.080
  • he said, well, you might wanna talk to Pastor Jack,
  • 00:15:35.080 --> 00:15:38.020
  • and I had never gotten to know Pastor Jack.
  • 00:15:38.020 --> 00:15:40.210
  • So when I went, so he got me an appointment,
  • 00:15:40.210 --> 00:15:43.060
  • that's all he did was crack the door open,
  • 00:15:43.060 --> 00:15:44.280
  • get me an appointment.
  • 00:15:44.280 --> 00:15:46.040
  • I had a 15 minute slot with Pastor Jack.
  • 00:15:46.040 --> 00:15:49.230
  • I brought him the New Covenant.
  • 00:15:49.230 --> 00:15:51.170
  • I sat across from him at his desk in his office,
  • 00:15:51.170 --> 00:15:56.050
  • and he began to unpack for me his love for the Jewish people
  • 00:15:56.050 --> 00:16:00.130
  • and his walk with Israel for decades of faith.
  • 00:16:00.130 --> 00:16:04.220
  • The stuff that Gateway has been brought up on
  • 00:16:04.220 --> 00:16:08.100
  • is because of Pastor Jack's personal walk with Jewish people
  • 00:16:08.100 --> 00:16:12.070
  • in Israel that love God,
  • 00:16:12.070 --> 00:16:13.250
  • and as he began to share his heart with me about it,
  • 00:16:13.250 --> 00:16:16.140
  • I had a straight up word from God,
  • 00:16:17.190 --> 00:16:19.090
  • I'd never delivered a word from God to somebody
  • 00:16:19.090 --> 00:16:20.270
  • important like that before, but he and I had,
  • 00:16:20.270 --> 00:16:23.230
  • we sat for almost three hours,
  • 00:16:23.230 --> 00:16:26.050
  • talking about the way that God loved the Jewish people
  • 00:16:26.050 --> 00:16:29.170
  • and how much they needed to know the message of Messiah,
  • 00:16:29.170 --> 00:16:32.040
  • and it ministered to my spirit in a way that I was,
  • 00:16:32.040 --> 00:16:35.020
  • I had not ever, I had never had.
  • 00:16:35.020 --> 00:16:37.250
  • He has such a heart for women of faith,
  • 00:16:39.010 --> 00:16:42.050
  • believing God for miracles.
  • 00:16:42.050 --> 00:16:44.070
  • And that's what we have to be able to tell mom's today,
  • 00:16:44.070 --> 00:16:46.080
  • the people watching today,
  • 00:16:46.080 --> 00:16:47.230
  • is that we're believing God for a miracle in this country,
  • 00:16:47.230 --> 00:16:50.130
  • we need a miraculous return to the Bible in our generation.
  • 00:16:50.130 --> 00:16:54.260
  • We need revival that starts in the hearts
  • 00:16:54.260 --> 00:16:56.290
  • of the mothers who are concerned about their children.
  • 00:16:56.290 --> 00:17:00.170
  • And that's the whole reason the Bible Society started.
  • 00:17:00.170 --> 00:17:03.080
  • But now a decade in, we have important messages to tell our
  • 00:17:03.080 --> 00:17:06.250
  • children that are getting drowned out by virtual reality
  • 00:17:06.250 --> 00:17:11.140
  • when there's a real reality, a real Kingdom
  • 00:17:11.140 --> 00:17:14.060
  • that's taking place, and we need to alert
  • 00:17:14.060 --> 00:17:17.040
  • our children about that today,
  • 00:17:17.040 --> 00:17:18.180
  • and that's why this is such a miraculous product.
  • 00:17:18.180 --> 00:17:19.250
  • - And that's what the Bible does.
  • 00:17:19.250 --> 00:17:21.020
  • I was just thinking about how,
  • 00:17:21.020 --> 00:17:22.230
  • we talked about how God uses people.
  • 00:17:22.230 --> 00:17:24.270
  • Jonathan you talked about Jahu,
  • 00:17:24.270 --> 00:17:26.250
  • Daniah, you talked about Cyrus,
  • 00:17:26.250 --> 00:17:28.210
  • I even thought about Cyrus, how 150 years before
  • 00:17:28.210 --> 00:17:33.190
  • Isaiah prophesied about Cyrus and says my shepherd,
  • 00:17:35.010 --> 00:17:38.210
  • and something a lot of people don't know is
  • 00:17:39.260 --> 00:17:41.150
  • Cyrus, when he was born, there was a prophecy
  • 00:17:41.150 --> 00:17:43.250
  • that he would overthrow his grandfather.
  • 00:17:43.250 --> 00:17:45.280
  • And so his grandfather actually ordered
  • 00:17:45.280 --> 00:17:48.120
  • for him to be killed.
  • 00:17:48.120 --> 00:17:49.240
  • So his parents take him out and they meet
  • 00:17:49.240 --> 00:17:52.140
  • a shepherd and his wife who had a stillborn baby.
  • 00:17:52.140 --> 00:17:56.140
  • They actually switched babies,
  • 00:17:56.140 --> 00:17:58.120
  • they take this stillborn baby back
  • 00:17:58.120 --> 00:18:00.030
  • and say look, this is Cyrus, you know, he's dead,
  • 00:18:00.030 --> 00:18:03.090
  • and Cyrus was raised by a shepherd and his wife
  • 00:18:03.090 --> 00:18:06.100
  • for the first 10 years of his life.
  • 00:18:06.100 --> 00:18:08.060
  • The grandfather felt so bad about it,
  • 00:18:08.060 --> 00:18:10.170
  • that he just mourns for 10 years
  • 00:18:10.170 --> 00:18:12.170
  • that on his 10th birthday they said listen he's still alive.
  • 00:18:12.170 --> 00:18:15.190
  • So they bring him back.
  • 00:18:15.190 --> 00:18:17.060
  • And so then Cyrus does become the king then, Persia,
  • 00:18:17.060 --> 00:18:22.020
  • he then takes over Babylon,
  • 00:18:22.020 --> 00:18:24.060
  • where the children of Israel are held captive,
  • 00:18:24.060 --> 00:18:26.090
  • but they literally open the scriptures, and show him
  • 00:18:26.090 --> 00:18:29.190
  • his name in Isaiah that was written 150 years before,
  • 00:18:29.190 --> 00:18:33.190
  • what he would do for the Jewish people,
  • 00:18:33.190 --> 00:18:35.110
  • but here's what's amazing,
  • 00:18:35.110 --> 00:18:37.030
  • God says Cyrus, my shepherd.
  • 00:18:37.030 --> 00:18:40.250
  • - [Daniah] Wow.
  • 00:18:41.240 --> 00:18:43.120
  • - And that's what got him because he realized God knew him.
  • 00:18:43.120 --> 00:18:46.010
  • God knew that he had been raised by shepherds
  • 00:18:46.010 --> 00:18:49.070
  • the first 10 years of his life.
  • 00:18:49.070 --> 00:18:51.040
  • And he then comes back,
  • 00:18:51.040 --> 00:18:52.270
  • and what I wanted to say about this is that even though
  • 00:18:52.270 --> 00:18:56.220
  • here Israel was going through a time of exile,
  • 00:18:56.220 --> 00:19:00.210
  • really discipline from the Lord for 70 years,
  • 00:19:00.210 --> 00:19:03.250
  • yet God was working behind the scenes
  • 00:19:03.250 --> 00:19:07.090
  • with Jahu one time, with Cyrus another time,
  • 00:19:07.090 --> 00:19:09.230
  • many, many times, he's still working behind the scenes,
  • 00:19:09.230 --> 00:19:12.140
  • and what I wanna say to you is
  • 00:19:12.140 --> 00:19:14.020
  • no matter what you're going through right now,
  • 00:19:14.020 --> 00:19:15.200
  • and even if you think you're going through a time
  • 00:19:15.200 --> 00:19:17.060
  • of discipline or that you dug a hole for yourself,
  • 00:19:17.060 --> 00:19:20.100
  • God's still working, he's still got a plan,
  • 00:19:20.100 --> 00:19:22.240
  • and that's why I want you to get the Tree of Life version,
  • 00:19:22.240 --> 00:19:25.180
  • and that's why I want you to get in the scripture.
  • 00:19:25.180 --> 00:19:27.180
  • So Daniah, tell us some more.
  • 00:19:27.180 --> 00:19:30.180
  • - Well I'm amazed that this is a wonderful connection
  • 00:19:30.180 --> 00:19:34.170
  • to what you just said.
  • 00:19:34.170 --> 00:19:36.020
  • I just wanna read the end of Second Chronicles to you
  • 00:19:36.020 --> 00:19:38.220
  • because it's so inspiring.
  • 00:19:38.220 --> 00:19:40.220
  • It says now in the first year of King Cyrus of Persia,
  • 00:19:40.220 --> 00:19:43.040
  • fulfilling the word of Adonai by the mouth of Jeremiah.
  • 00:19:43.040 --> 00:19:45.280
  • Jeremiah was the last prophet spoken of in the
  • 00:19:45.280 --> 00:19:48.100
  • Old Testament, that's the part I love to remember.
  • 00:19:48.100 --> 00:19:51.190
  • Adonai stirred up the spirit of King Cyrus of Persia
  • 00:19:51.190 --> 00:19:54.070
  • so that he sent a proclamation throughout all his kingdom
  • 00:19:54.070 --> 00:19:56.140
  • and also put in writing saying,
  • 00:19:56.140 --> 00:19:58.170
  • thus says King Cyrus of Persia, Adonai, the God of Heaven,
  • 00:19:58.170 --> 00:20:02.090
  • has given me all the kingdoms of the Earth,
  • 00:20:02.090 --> 00:20:04.060
  • he's appointed me to build him a house in Jerusalem,
  • 00:20:04.060 --> 00:20:06.140
  • which is in Judah, whoever among you,
  • 00:20:06.140 --> 00:20:08.250
  • of all his people, may go up,
  • 00:20:08.250 --> 00:20:10.110
  • and may Adonai his God be with him.
  • 00:20:10.110 --> 00:20:13.150
  • So the children of Israel returning to be able to go
  • 00:20:13.150 --> 00:20:16.160
  • and worship God again is amazing.
  • 00:20:16.160 --> 00:20:18.100
  • But when you realize that the promise of the
  • 00:20:18.100 --> 00:20:20.080
  • New Covenant was given to Jeremiah, the last prophet
  • 00:20:20.080 --> 00:20:23.210
  • spoken of, when you return the Jewish order
  • 00:20:23.210 --> 00:20:26.260
  • to the cannon of scripture,
  • 00:20:26.260 --> 00:20:28.120
  • you're returning the New Covenant promise
  • 00:20:28.120 --> 00:20:30.180
  • to the last thing the Jews remember
  • 00:20:30.180 --> 00:20:32.130
  • and so they're looking for Messiah to come
  • 00:20:32.130 --> 00:20:34.290
  • because that's where it says they will all come to know me
  • 00:20:34.290 --> 00:20:38.040
  • in Jeremiah 31.
  • 00:20:38.040 --> 00:20:39.090
  • - Absolutely fantastic.
  • 00:20:39.090 --> 00:20:40.230
  • - [Daniah] It's just the best news.
  • 00:20:40.230 --> 00:20:42.040
  • - I just wanna tell you again,
  • 00:20:42.040 --> 00:20:43.030
  • I love your zeal for the Lord,
  • 00:20:43.030 --> 00:20:45.080
  • and I love your zeal for the Word of God,
  • 00:20:45.080 --> 00:20:47.220
  • and your zeal for the next generation.
  • 00:20:47.220 --> 00:20:51.010
  • We have to teach our children the Bible.
  • 00:20:51.010 --> 00:20:54.020
  • - You do.
  • 00:20:54.020 --> 00:20:55.070
  • - That's the only thing that's gonna last,
  • 00:20:55.070 --> 00:20:56.140
  • that's the only thing that changes lives.
  • 00:20:56.140 --> 00:20:58.060
  • I mean, I wanna, when I preach, I like to use humor,
  • 00:20:58.060 --> 00:21:03.050
  • because I want people to listen to me.
  • 00:21:03.050 --> 00:21:04.190
  • You know, our motto in our children's ministry,
  • 00:21:04.190 --> 00:21:07.070
  • is have fun and learn about God.
  • 00:21:07.070 --> 00:21:09.020
  • - [Daniah] That's right.
  • 00:21:09.020 --> 00:21:10.070
  • - Because if they're not having fun
  • 00:21:10.070 --> 00:21:11.050
  • they're not learning about God.
  • 00:21:11.050 --> 00:21:12.140
  • And someone asked me a while back,
  • 00:21:12.140 --> 00:21:14.000
  • so what's you're motto for big church, adult church,
  • 00:21:14.000 --> 00:21:17.070
  • I said it's the same thing.
  • 00:21:17.070 --> 00:21:18.110
  • Have fun and learn about God.
  • 00:21:18.110 --> 00:21:20.070
  • - [Daniah] He calls us children.
  • 00:21:20.070 --> 00:21:21.150
  • - Cause if they're not having fun,
  • 00:21:21.150 --> 00:21:22.140
  • they're not learning about God.
  • 00:21:22.140 --> 00:21:24.000
  • So, yes I like to present messages in a humorous way.
  • 00:21:24.000 --> 00:21:27.050
  • But if I don't feel my messages with the word of God,
  • 00:21:27.050 --> 00:21:30.010
  • nothing's gonna happen.
  • 00:21:30.010 --> 00:21:30.280
  • - [Daniah] That's right.
  • 00:21:30.280 --> 00:21:32.030
  • - No change is going to come about.
  • 00:21:32.030 --> 00:21:33.210
  • Daniah, when we talk again, the Tree of Life version,
  • 00:21:33.210 --> 00:21:36.290
  • things that God showed in these Jewish scholars,
  • 00:21:36.290 --> 00:21:40.200
  • and then even things that you learned through this
  • 00:21:40.200 --> 00:21:42.220
  • on your own quest, I know you went on a pretty strong
  • 00:21:42.220 --> 00:21:45.200
  • Bible quest yourself, so, tell me something about,
  • 00:21:45.200 --> 00:21:49.120
  • that God spoke to you about this.
  • 00:21:49.120 --> 00:21:50.260
  • - I think one of the most important things to do
  • 00:21:50.260 --> 00:21:52.260
  • is to remember that we wanna make an impact
  • 00:21:52.260 --> 00:21:54.290
  • with our families and our children.
  • 00:21:54.290 --> 00:21:56.210
  • And so the covenant of God, right,
  • 00:21:56.210 --> 00:21:59.190
  • that this Bible represents, is the blood covenant
  • 00:21:59.190 --> 00:22:02.130
  • that we believe happened when Messiah gave his life for us,
  • 00:22:02.130 --> 00:22:05.230
  • but that blood covenant started with a promise
  • 00:22:05.230 --> 00:22:07.290
  • and a garden to a couple, right?
  • 00:22:07.290 --> 00:22:09.220
  • There was a promise that God would defeat sin and death,
  • 00:22:09.220 --> 00:22:12.160
  • and in doing so it went from a couple in a garden
  • 00:22:12.160 --> 00:22:16.220
  • to that same, to the blood covenant going to Noah,
  • 00:22:16.220 --> 00:22:19.100
  • which was to a family,
  • 00:22:19.100 --> 00:22:20.200
  • then between generations with Abraham and Sarah,
  • 00:22:20.200 --> 00:22:23.080
  • and then from there to Moses at Mount Sinai,
  • 00:22:23.080 --> 00:22:25.270
  • to Yeshua, which is an outreach to the world.
  • 00:22:25.270 --> 00:22:28.040
  • The five steps of that covenant is an expanding message
  • 00:22:28.040 --> 00:22:31.130
  • of salvation to the whole world.
  • 00:22:31.130 --> 00:22:33.120
  • And to be able to teach that to our children
  • 00:22:33.120 --> 00:22:35.150
  • that our salvation is founding Yeshua is critical path
  • 00:22:35.150 --> 00:22:39.050
  • for us, but teaching our children
  • 00:22:39.050 --> 00:22:41.140
  • about morals, and values, and things that we learn
  • 00:22:41.140 --> 00:22:43.270
  • in the Bible is a daily walk with our children,
  • 00:22:43.270 --> 00:22:47.040
  • and our children's children.
  • 00:22:47.040 --> 00:22:48.190
  • And I think that there's mothers out there
  • 00:22:48.190 --> 00:22:50.130
  • that wanna know how do I reach my kids,
  • 00:22:50.130 --> 00:22:52.140
  • and how do I make, I can't just hand them a Bible,
  • 00:22:52.140 --> 00:22:55.060
  • how are they gonna get it?
  • 00:22:55.060 --> 00:22:56.230
  • Well the answer is that there's a journey
  • 00:22:56.230 --> 00:22:59.030
  • that we go on in Judaism, and when you add the journey
  • 00:22:59.030 --> 00:23:01.220
  • of Israel to the revelation of Messiah,
  • 00:23:01.220 --> 00:23:04.130
  • that bipedal motion propels us forward with the love of God
  • 00:23:04.130 --> 00:23:08.020
  • and that's what I wanna see for my kids.
  • 00:23:08.020 --> 00:23:09.140
  • - That's great, and so I just,
  • 00:23:09.140 --> 00:23:11.080
  • I wanna come back to Jonathan in just a moment,
  • 00:23:11.080 --> 00:23:13.260
