Yeshua Matters

By Jacob Fronczak

Yeshua Matters is the story of a pastor who discovers that Jesus—Rabbi Yeshua of Nazareth—is just as much a part of the tapestry of Jewish history as his ancestor David, whose throne Jesus claimed as the promised Messiah. Yet in the collective heart and mind of the church, Jesus has lost his Jewishness. What would change if the church were to rediscover that at the very center of its faith stands a Jewish rabbi?

What would change if we all realized that Jesus’ Jewishness changes everything—that Yeshua matters?


How did the Apostles do Church?

Listen to the author of Yeshua Matters, Pastor Jacob Fronczak.

We see depictions of him in movies, paintings, and stained-glass windows. We hear about him from the pulpit and the stage. We read about him in the Gospels. As his disciples, we follow him; we revere him; we glorify him. But how well do we really know him?

  • Monks, imams, gurus, priests, and pastors of all kinds have tried to define him. But how does he define himself?
  • What if the Jesus of history doesn’t look like the Jesus we’re trying to follow?
  • What if we’re wrong—not about Jesus’ theological identity, but about his priorities? His politics? His mission? His message?
  • What if we’re wrong about Jesus’ religion?

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.

Yet despite this emerging scholarly consensus, Jesus has lost his Jewishness in the collective heart and mind of the church. We simply don’t imagine, interpret, or follow him as a part of the broader tapestry of Jewish life and history.

If the author is correct, then the root of modern Christianity’s maladies is not disconnection between generations, conflict over worship styles, doctrinal differences, or a failure to keep up with cultural trends, but is instead a failure to apprehend and embrace the historical figure of Jesus.

What would change if the church were to rediscover that at the very center of its faith stands a practitioner of Judaism? What would change if the Christian world were to rally around a risen Rabbi?

What would change if we all realized that Jesus’ Jewishness changes everything—that Yeshua matters?
