Last summer I dropped a late load in North Philly and needed a place to park and sleep for the night. Up the road about 20 miles was a Plaza on the I-476 Turnpike. Went right to sleep and woke Saturday morning ready for my daily walk. On my walk I walked passed a church....a Christian Missionary and Alliance Church. It was Saturday Morning , so I thought I might go to their service the next morning. Then I saw another sign in their yard that said, "Beit Simcha", "A Messianic Jewish Congregation", my interest was instantly perked, I had been asking God to lead me to a place where I could learn about Him and become involved in serving others. Thirty-one years before this we had made a trip to Israel, where I fell in love with the country of Israel and the Hebrew language and became interested in Jews finding Jesus, so a Messianic Congregation was very interesting to me.
Long story short - I fell in love with the Jewish way of living in the Messianic way. As the Rabbi of Beit Simcha said, The Messianics find Yeshua in EVERYTHING in the בתנ"ך Tanach (Old Testament) and
הברית החדשה HaVrit HaChadasha (New Testament).
I have spent the last 6 months getting back to Allentown, PA as often as possible to attend services on Shabbat AM. I have learned so much about the Lord and the New Testament's heritage in the Jewish Old Testament Scripture.
