Now What?!

January 14, 2023 • Matt Rosenberg • Acts 16:6–12, Proverbs 16:9

If you ever found yourself in a season of asking God “Now what?!”, you need this message!

The Jewish Paul Problem

January 7, 2023 • Galatians 2:3–5, Acts 16:1–4, 2 Peter 3:15–16

Judaism and Christianity have distanced from each other for 1900 years. The Rabbis and The Church Fathers have twisted and confused Paul’s words to separate him from Jewish life and practice. Watch as Matt clears up some of the confusion in a message called the Jewish Paul Problem.

What Gentiles Must Do!

December 17, 2022 • Matt Rosenberg • Acts 15:12–29, Leviticus 17:11

There are only 4 things Gentiles must do, and they were not new in the New Testament! Of course, those 4 things add up to over 100 commandments in the Torah. Let us explain what the Jewish Apostles said Gentiles must do!

Circumcision of the Heart

December 10, 2022 • Matt Rosenberg • Deuteronomy 10:12–16, Ephesians 2:8–13, Genesis 17:7–14, Exodus 12:43–49, Acts 15

Gentiles don’t become Jews and Jews don’t become Gentiles when we believe in Yeshua. According to Moses and Paul, what matters most for everyone is the circumcision of the heart. Part 2 of Acts 15 is available right now!

Different Food, Same Table

December 3, 2022 • Galatians 2:11–14, Acts 15:1–5, Genesis 17:9–14

To circumcise or not to circumcise? How you understand (or don’t understand) circumcision affects how you understand much of the New Testament. In Acts 15, the question is not actually about circumcision. The question is: how can Gentiles join the family of God? The answer is: Through Jesus and as Gentiles. Watch as Matt guides us the the complicated history of circumcision and conversion.

Open Door For Gentiles

November 26, 2022 • Matt Rosenberg • Acts 14, Micah 4

In Acts 14, God uses a lame man—a man who never walked—to open the door to Gentiles for the first time ever! We need the power of the Holy Spirit to use us to show people how to turn to the living God.

Sent Ones

November 19, 2022

The Jewish people did not reject Jesus. Let’s repeat that for the people in the back: The Jewish people did not reject Jesus. ALSO, Saul did NOT become Paul. Confused? Good, watching “The Sent Ones” might be just what you need!  Link here: https://subspla.sh/4jf9hnq - More on the Restoration app! - Apple Store: https://http://rb.gy/kgbnwq Google Play: https://http://rb.gy/wz74bm #restorationseattle #Jewish #messianic #shabbatshalom #jewishinseattle #thehappyrabbi #seattle

The King of the Jews

November 12, 2022 • Matt Rosenberg • John 10, Acts 12

At Restoration, we focus on identity for both Jews & Gentiles: distinct in our observances but united in our common worship of Yeshua as Lord and Messiah. Watch as we walk through the contrast between Herod Agrippa I and Yeshua, the true king of the Jews, in Acts 12.

The First Christians Were Jews

September 17, 2022 • Acts 11:19–30, Galatians 2:1–10

The first Christians were Jews. They were Jewish people who followed Yeshua as the Messiah. “Christian” and “Messianic” mean the same thing: one from Greek one from Hebrew. If you believe in Jesus you are a “Messiah follower.” You can identity as a Jewish or Gentile Follower of Messiah. Watch as Rabbi Matt breaks down how we can do that for ourselves.

Peter & Jonah: Same God, Same Mission

September 10, 2022 • Matt Rosenberg • Jonah, Ephesians 3:2–6, Acts 10—11, Matthew 28:18–19

Watch this week’s message as Rabbi Matt shows us how Peter could only understand the mission to Gentiles with the context of Jonah. Luke’s point (which most miss) is that Jonah’s God forgives the sins of Gentiles, so Jonah’s God would send His people to the Gentiles. In fact, Jonah’s God is Peter’s God and the mission is the same: Tell the whole world, Jew & Gentile, the Good News of Yeshua.

Gentiles?

September 3, 2022 • Matt Rosenberg • Acts 10—11, Leviticus 11:43–45, Deuteronomy 14:2–3

Acts 10-11 are not about food, they are about people. At Restoration, the identity of Jews and Gentiles who follow Yeshua are equally as important to us. We are all a part of the same family. Watch this week’s message as Rabbi Matt shows you how the original Jewish Apostles understood the revelation that Gentiles could join the family as Gentiles.

What Would Paul Do?

August 27, 2022 • Matt Rosenberg • Acts 9:23–43, 1 Kings 19:13–21, Galatians 1:11–21

Most Messianic Synagogues exist to reach Jewish people. Restoration exists to reach Gentiles and Jews with the Good News of Yeshua in its original Jewish context. The Jewishness of Jesus and Paul matter for everyone. Let us show you how in this week’s message: “What Would Paul Do?” Link here: https://subspla.sh/mdq94yg - More on the Restoration app! - Apple Store: https://rb.gy/kgbnwq Google Play: https://rb.gy/wz74bm #thehappyrabbi #restorationseattle #Jewish #messianic #shabbatshalom #jewishinseattle

The (Non) Conversion of Paul

August 20, 2022 • Matt Rosenberg • Acts 9:1–20

You’ve heard of Paul the Apostle: Do you know who Paul really was as a Rabbi, as a Jewish person, as a Torah Scholar, as one who was called by Jesus to preach to the Gentiles? Let Rabbi Matt show you the truth about the most slandered man in history!

Too Small A Thing

August 13, 2022 • Acts 8:26–40

Is it possible that what you have dedicated your life to may be only a small piece of what God actually calls you to do? Rabbi Matt tells us why it might be “too small a thing” through the Ethiopian Eunuch of Acts 8, the suffering servant of Isaiah 53, and the good news of Yeshua!
