Luther and the Jews, Part 4, Evidence that Jesus Christ is the Messiah

In the last post we indicated that Luther's disagreements with the Rabbis over Messianic prophesies were very intense and disappointing for him.  In the end the Rabbis would retreat to tradition on top of it.  Hopeless for him in the end.

I am landscaping while the weather is good, but I'll post one of Rev. Fisk's videos here which I thought was very good, as most of them are.  It deals with the disciples on the road to Emmaus.  They had lost their faith in Jesus and were very sad.  He chastised them and opened their eyes proving to them from scripture what the Messiah was like.  This is, of course, the right thing to do, especially with Jewish people and the method Paul also employed everywhere he went.

I really admire you tackling this very tough topic, for so many Lutherans. I am learning a lot and for that I thank you.
