The Key to the Message

There are many Christian leaders out there that are looking to connect with a solid source for Messianic Jewish teaching. But we can’t wait for them to find us. We have to go find them. This makes it all the more important for First Fruits of Zion to be at venues like Catalyst.

HaYesod: Learning the Foundations

We are very encouraged to hear testimonies like this. It motivates us to continue to present vision, teaching, and resources that help people to know and follow Jesus better by seeing him through Jewish eyes.

FFOZ at the UMJC

We are thankful that God has given us the ability to produce vision and teaching that is helping to shape and cultivate the development of Messianic Judaism in so many places. It was a fruitful time of strengthening existing relationships and establishing new ones.

FFOZ Conference Reveals New Focus on Youth

It was amazing and inspiring to see the bonds that were formed among the young adults during the 2016 conference. We must continue to create opportunities for relationships and community to form within the Messianic movement, especially among its youth. FFOZ’s new initiatives will help to do just that.

Place the Bible on the Land of the Bible

There are lots of ways to experience the land of Israel, but FFOZ’s historical-geography study tour is primarily about placing the stories and events of the Bible onto the land of Israel. It’s a tour for serious students and for everyone who loves the Bible.

FFOZ's Presentation at the Lausanne Consultation on Jewish Evangelism

Our core principles as a ministry involve restoring the Jewish Messiah, restoring the Torah, restoring the gospel, and restoring Israel. It is our conviction that as these fundamental areas are restored to their biblical context, efforts to reach the Jewish people with the good news of Yeshua will be strengthened.

Youth Seminar: Decoding the Parables of Yeshua

This June (God willing), First Fruits of Zion will host a special three-day seminar for Messianic students ages 15-20 titled “Decoding the Parables of Yeshua.” First Fruits of Zion teachers will present a crash-course on ten parables with emphasis on learning how rabbinic parables function, their role in Jewish teaching, and the tools necessary for interpreting them.

This Year in Jerusalem!

In 2016, First Fruits of Zion will be hosting two tours to Israel, and our annual Shavu’ot conference will be held at Beth Immanuel in Hudson, Wisconsin. Now is a good time to make a decision to join us. Get the dates on your calendar.

FFOZ at SBL National Conference

Last week, I had the opportunity to represent FFOZ at the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL) national conference in Atlanta. I am grateful for the progress that we can observe, but there is still much work to be done in expanding the presence and visibility of both Messianic Judaism and the work of FFOZ.
