I admit. I’ve watched many televangelists in order to figure them out, but I do not understand some things like how there’s this surge of interest into Jewish holidays and practices. Like…
During Passover time, Steve Munsey appeared on INSP and asked viewers to make a “Passover offering” i.e. money and receive the seven passover blessings and a metzuah (that thing that goes on your door…sorry I can’t spell it).
Pastor Larry Huch told his congregation that Jesus wore a Jewish prayer shawl and when the woman with the issue of blood touched the hem she was healed. He encouraged others to buy their very own prayer shawl and experience healings as well. I saw him wear a yamica (a Jewish skullcap) and hand out communion. He also announced that his congregation celebrates Shabat, Yom Kippor and Rosh Hanhanna and has experienced miracles because of it.
Pastor John Haggee advertised the Feast of Tabernacles to celebrated at his megachurch.
Bible Prophecy evangelist Perry Stone frequently presents Jewish traditions, structures and feast days in light of Bible prophecy and applies them to Christianity today. This week on INSP, he was showing David Currello the ancient temple.
In light of these examples, I have some questions:
As a Jew, how do you feel about televangelists rediscovering and sometimes practicing your traditions?
As a Christians, how do you feel about fellow Christians practicing our elder brothers’ traditions?
Why do you think this is so popular? Is this a cry for liturgy? (I do not get it!!!)
This thread is not meant to sow hatred between Jews and Christians. Please keep your responses charitable!
