Christmas and the Hebrew Scriptures
Does Christmas find its origins in the Hebrew Scriptures? Christians celebrate Christmas as the birth of their divine Messiah, born to a virgin in Bethlehem. Did the New Testament fabricate this story or does the Jewish Bible provide a reasonable foundation?

Join us in a special three-part livestream experience where we will unpack three passages from the Hebrew Bible on this topic. Take part in the discussion and hear different interpretations from traditional rabbis and the Messianic community. Each session will last one hour.

• Session 1: Isaiah 7:14 Led by Stephen Katz
• Session 2: Isaiah 9:5 [6] Led by Annette Sofaer
• Session 3: Micah 5:1 [2] Let by Sam Rood

We will have an interactive seminar with Q&A and discussion throughout.
Register below to get your invitation to all three sessions. You will also be sent recordings of each session after the event.
