Christian anti-Semitism built the road that led to Auschwitz. In the Holocaust, two thousand years of anti-Jewish replacement theology culminated in genocide. European Christianity sat as if bewitched in the cold darkness of indifference just outside a fiery circle of doom while the ovens roared and the smoke of six million innocent Jewish lives filled the skies over Europe. This book is about remembering what happened in the past, understanding how we contributed to the nightmare, and learning from those mistakes to change the future.
The biblical education of Jewish children begins with Leviticus, a book largely about the sacrificial system. The animal sacrifices, however, are especially repugnant to modern Christians who see them as a temporary provision until Messiah's final atonement for sin. By studying the sacrifices we gain insight into God's instructions for approaching him in worship, and a better understanding of Yeshua's work on our behalf.
Most believers have been taught an obligation to give a tenth of their income to their home church, but is this really what the Bible requires? First Fruits of Zion teacher Toby Janicki attempts to answer this question and more as he takes you on a fascinating biblical and historical study of the obligation of tithing. What does the LORD require of you?
Does the New Covenant really replace the Old Covenant? Christian replacement theology is solidly based on a misunderstanding of the meaning of the new covenant. The church teaches that the new covenant cancels the Torah and God’s covenant with the Jewish people.

Yeshua Matters is the story of a pastor who discovers that Jesus Christ was not just a Jewish person, but a practicing Jew, a teacher of Judaism—a rabbi, known during his earthly ministry as Rabbi Yeshua of Nazareth.
Christian theology of Israel has changed more in the past hundred years than at any other time in the past eighteen hundred. The rise of dispensationalism, the establishment of the State of Israel, and the renewal of Jewish-Christian dialogue in the post-Holocaust era have all informed a modern movement of Christians who are supportive of the Jewish people and the Jewish state.
In Israel Matters, the author of Yeshua Matters takes a theology centered on Rabbi Yeshua of Nazareth one step further. Once we realize we are following a practitioner of Judaism, the King of Israel, and the promised Savior of the Jewish people, what happens to our theology of Israel?
