THOUGHTS FROM THE FOUNDER . . .
On April 21, 1993, while standing in the Tomb of the
Prophets in the Kidron Valley on the Eastern edge of the Old City of Jerusalem - I had a Spiritual experience which was so profound, it changed the trajectory of my life.
What was I to do with this mind, soul, spirit and body infusion of new understanding, which didn’t exactly fit my past or current theology?
I felt a bit like Saul/Paul of Tarsus on the road to Damascus getting his theology upended. Like Saul, I had to step back and look at everything I had been taught, or thought was irrevocably true, through an entirely new lens of understanding:
Conversely, Saul of Tarsus, a Jewish scholar, received a profound understanding of Yeshua of Nazareth as the long awaited Jewish Messiah; and of God’s heart to bring the Gentiles/Nations into the promises and covenants of Israel, making us all - ONE NEW MAN. He was to go forth with that message.
At the time of my Kidron Valley experience, I had no room in my reading for the likes of Saul/Paul, whom I perceived to have very confusing messages about the “law” from Letter to Letter.
Imagine my surprise, to realize that Saul/Paul’s experiences while “taking the message” had often run parallel with mine: opposition from all sides; persecution (mine was not suffered in the body, but property - graffitied with anti-Semitic symbols and slogans); while also showered with incredible blessings and revelations, while walking ‘no man’s land’ between peoples of faith.
Imagine my further surprise to be entrusted with writing a movie screenplay about Saul/Paul and in the process coming to appreciate and understand him!
Now that the screenplay on Saul/Paul is in position to be produced through the Shoshan Foundation, I feel both his and my messages have been melded into one through this movie, which has the potential to impact in a positive and life giving way, the differences between Jewish and Christian peoples - Repairing the Breach -through His Torah/Tanach!
Won’t you join with us in bringing the message!
