“Are We There Yet?” (Part 14)

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. (Hebrews 13:8 ESV)

Most of us know the above verse, but have we considered the following?

Moreover, Yeshua’s (Jesus Christ) being the same yesterday, today, and forever means that He is still Jewish and will return a Jew. The Messiah has not been transformed into a Christian (rather the word “Christian” refers to people who are being transformed by Him.) Yeshua was born a Jew, died a Jew, and was resurrected a Jew. He is a Jew now, serving in heaven as a Jewish cohen gadol (High Priest) [Hebrews 2:17]. He will return as a Jewish King to occupy the throne of His Jewish ancestor David. His humanity makes Him the Savior of all, both Jews and non-Jews. But He has not Himself been made over into a Gentile. (Jewish New Testament Commentary by David H. Stern, ©1992 by David H. Stern, pp. 721)

Our Lord is a Jew.
