For Christians (followers of Christ), Jesus is at the center of everything they believe. As a Jewish young man, Michael Rydelnik refused to even consider Jesus’ claim to be the promised Messiah of the Hebrew Scriptures. But when his own mother, a Holocaust survivor, revealed to her family that she now believed in Jesus, it divided their family.
Michael, in an effort to convince his mother that she was wrong, began to study the Messianic prophecies found in the Hebrew Bible, the Old Testament Scriptures. Little did he know that his efforts to find evidence to dissuade his mother from her faith in Jesus would in fact lead him to the Jewish Messiah.
Join Dr. Michael Rydelnik as he recounts his own personal journey of discovery in this 3-part series, “My Search for Messiah.”
