Welcome to Beth Messiah (a ministry and outreach of Calvary Chapel of Verde Valley)
Our desire is to reach Jew and Gentile Messianic men and women for Y'Shua HaMasiach (Jesus the Christ).
We owe much to Israel (the Hebrews) who have given us the Holy Scriptures we hold dear, and the Word Who became flesh - the Christ/Messiah (Annointed One) Who came to save the world from sin.
Beth Messiah meets monthly with Worship, Davidic Dancing and the Word of God. Special prayers for: children, wives, Israel, special occasions. Please join us in praying for the Jew first, then gentiles as the Word tells us.
"And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law. To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak:I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. And this I do for the gospel's sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you." 1 Corinthians 9:20-23
Regarding the retelling of the story of Passover the Torah commands, "You shall tell (i.e., v'higadta:, from which the word haggadah [story] comes) your son on that day, 'it is because of what the LORD did for me when I came out of Egypt'" (Exod. 13:8). Since there are different ways "to tell" the story, the Passover Seder uses different methods to engage all our senses. The Seder Plate appeals to our eyes to serve as a sort of "visual story" of the events of the deliverance. The various ritual actions (such as dipping the karpas, tasting the bitter herbs, reciting blessings, singing, and so on) appeals to our physical experiences at the table (taste, smell, motions). Finally, the verbal retelling of the story (beginning with the "four questions" - Mah nishtana ha-laila ha-zeh...) appeals to our ears to understand the message of our deliverance....
Chag Pesach Sameach!
