In this video, Christine Darg discusses the extraordinary vision of an Orthodox Israeli scholar who seeks to exonerate Jesus and return him to his own Jewish people.
Rabbi Ariel’s approach is strictly from a Jewish perspective. He insists he is not a missionary; he’s not messianic; he’s from the very Orthodox, Chasidic stream of Judaism. His rabbinic level book on Jesus (Yeshua) is presently available only in Hebrew.
His knowledge of Yeshua began when he studied the word chen, grace and favour. Rabbi Ariel is an expert on gematria, a method of interpreting the Hebrew scriptures by computing the numerical value of words. Each letter in the Hebrew alphabet has a numerical value.
Please note: There is an error in the program citing Isaiah 1: 27 mistakenly as Isaiah 1: 17.
