Get to Know Me a Bit:
I am a husband and a father to two very kewl young people who love Messiah. I've been a follower of Messiah Yeshua (Jesus), since 1973. My wife and I have been through intense poverty, unemployment and infertility (we were told that women with her condition don't have children). We know God answers prayer!
Oh, I am also a SciFi Geek and B-Movie fanatic, a love I share with both my wife and son!
I am the author of several dozen books, including The New Messianic Version of the Bible; The Book of GOD: For Men; The Book of GOD: Genesis Unbound; The Baptism of Jesus from a Jewish Perspective, The Fall of the American Babylon and more.
I am a Speaker, Author, Bible Teacher, Chaplain, Performer, Pastor and Mentor. I've also hosted a radio show. Since 1991, I've intentionally helped people better understand the nature and person God and the Bible from a Jewish perspective. Besides helping people grow spiritually, my favorite passion is explaining how the Word of God is the "God of Israel" in the Old Testament (Hebrew Bible), who was later born as Jesus/Yeshua in the New Testament. For some reason, a lot of believers really struggle with that concept.
I've ministered throughout Europe, including England and Wales, Japan, Israel, and in 48 of the United States.
I am a second-generation Jewish believer in Jesus. Although I did have one great-aunt named Sofi, who was also a Jewish lady who loved Messiah!
When not writing books and all those other things, I enjoy quiet times at home with my wife, and children. I am active in the Minneapolis/Saint Paul Messianic Community and with the following organizations:
- Board Member: The Humble Cup Coffee Shop (A Ministry Outreach at the University of Minnesota)
- Board President: Midwest Hebrew Ministries (Acting Director)
- Minnesota Representative: Chosen People Ministries, International
