What is your statement of faith?
Central to the LORD’s plan is Israel and the Jewish people. Romans 11:11 explains that the Gentile believer has been chosen by God to bring the witness of the LORD to the Jewish people. As this message of Yeshua is brought back to, and received by, the Jewish people, they will say, “Baruch Haba B’Shem Adonai” – “Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the LORD!” and in so doing, usher in Yeshua’s return (Matthew 23:39).
Through understanding the Old Testament and its prophetic nature, with Yeshua as its fulfillment, the viewer’s faith is strengthened, increased relationship and intimacy with the LORD is discovered, and an end-times vision of life is crystallized. “Discovering The Jewish Jesus” is an end-times ministry, strengthening the church and calling her to be a readied bride for the return of the Bridegroom, Yeshua Ha Mashiach (Jesus The Messiah).
What does Shaliach mean?
Shaliach is a Hebrew word that means: messenger, sent one, or emissary (someone sent to represent someone else).
Why is Rabbi growing peyos (side locks)?
Rabbi feels a need to identify himself as a unique person for God here on earth. The Lord instructed the children of Israel to wear peyos. And since Rabbi is Jewish, he wants to identify with his maker as a Jew and be a unique witness for Jesus, the Messiah, in the world.
Did Jesus wear peyos?
Yes, see Leviticus 19:27
Am I under the law?
Are there other changes Rabbi will be making?
No, other than to keep growing in the Lord as he has always done.
Has Rabbi changed his doctrine?
No, Rabbi continues to hold the entire Bible as true and the literal Word of God.
Should I also grow peyos?
Rabbi is not in any way trying to influence other people to grow peyos. In fact, he feels since this was a unique mark that the Lord had upon Israel, the only ones that should consider growing peyos are those that are naturally born Jews.
Did the disciples wear peyos?
They probably would have.
Do I have to be Jewish to wear peyos?
The Bible tells us: “Was any man called when he was already circumcised? He is not to become uncircumcised. Has anyone been called in uncircumcision? He is not to be circumcised.” – 1 Corinthians 7:18. Rabbi does not believe that Gentiles can be converted to Jews. Neither does he encourage Gentiles to try to look like or try to become Jewish.
Can I convert to become Jewish?
Although rabbinic law does have a process whereby a Gentile can convert to Judaism, Rabbi does not believe that a Gentile can ever become Jewish because being Jewish is a matter of one’s DNA. Being a Jew means that one is born a physical descendant of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
As a Gentile, should I keep the Law?
Rabbi does not believe that either Jews or Gentiles are under the Law. However, the Law is a self-revelation of the Lord and can teach us how to live by the Spirit as we follow Yeshua HaMashiach. Our relationship to the Law is not as those that are under the Law. However, we should study the Law and apply its Spiritual principles to our life. Because it is the self-revelation of God.

Where can I get your prayer shawl?
The prayer shawl that you see Rabbi Schneider wearing was custom made and was bought in Jerusalem. It is not for sale.
What resources do you recommend to help me be a better witness to Jews?
We would like to encourage you to use your testimony to witness to your Jewish friends. Show them Isaiah 53 in their own Hebrew Bible (Tanakh). Don’t let the enemy get you sidetracked to focus on the obstacles. Jesus is the beginning and ending of everything. He is the fulfillment of the Torah and Prophets, their substance is in Him. Romans 11:11 says that “salvation has come to the Gentiles, to make them (the Jews) jealous.” In Romans 11:13-14 Paul says “I am an apostle of Gentiles, I magnify my ministry, if somehow I might move to jealousy my fellow countrymen and save some of them.” Once we are given the good news, are we to hide our light? No, we want to share it with others. Verses 25-26 say, “For I do not want you, brethren, to be uninformed of this mystery–so that you will not be wise in your own estimation–that a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in; and so all Israel will be saved; just as it is written, “THE DELIVERER WILL COME FROM ZION”; this is the return of Jesus.
We are seeing more and more the “fullness” of the Gentile believers as they are rejecting man made traditions & religion, and learning the foundations of their faith to worship God in Spirit and in Truth. Gentiles are celebrating the Feasts from Lev. 23 with an understanding of how the feasts are fulfilled in Jesus. It has been observed that, Conservative Jews are complaining that Gentile Christians are “Hijacking” their holidays. Could it be that Jews are becoming jealous, just as Paul wrote?
What is Rabbi’s belief about cremation?
Genesis 3:19, “By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.”
1 Corinthians 15:38-44 “But God gives it a body as he has determined, and to each kind of seed he gives its own body. Not all flesh is the same: People have one kind of flesh, animals have another, birds another and fish another. There are also heavenly bodies and there are earthly bodies; but the splendor of the heavenly bodies is one kind, and the splendor of the earthly bodies is another. The sun has one kind of splendor, the moon another and the stars another; and star differs from star in splendor. So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body.”
Do the Orthodox Jew and Messianic Jew believe the same?
There can be major differences between an Orthodox Jew and a Messianic Jew but the key difference is:
Does Rabbi believe in the Rapture?
1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 “Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.”
1 Corinthians 15:51-52 “Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.”

What does it mean when you stretch out your arm towards us on television?
It is a symbol of the Word of God that is sharper than a two edged sword and proceeds out of the mouth of Jesus.
In what name does Rabbi baptize in?
I baptize in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, in the name of Jesus.
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost” Matthew 28:19
“Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” Acts 2:38
Is Jesus the only way to heaven?
“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.’” John 14:6
Does God still speak today?
Jesus said in John 10:27 “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”
Acts 2 verses 17-21 are now verses for today.
“‘And it shall be in the last days,’ God says, ‘that I will pour forth of my Spirit on all mankind; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; even on my bondslaves, both men and women, I will in those days pour forth of my Spirit and they shall prophesy. And I will grant wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth below, blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke. The sun will be turned into darkness and the moon into blood, before the great and glorious day of the lord shall come. And it shall be that everyone who calls on the name of the lord will be saved.’”
