Are you interested in the Jewish roots of Christianity? Join the crowd! Today more and more Christians are beginning to study Jewish beliefs and worship in order to learn more about the beliefs and practices of the New Testament church. We believe that this trend is actually a fulfillment of Bible prophecy.
“Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you” (Zechariah 8:23).
My Shalom Online is the educational outreach of Shalom Hebraic Christian Congregation located in Kingwood, Texas. At Shalom we don’t try to turn Jews into Gentiles, and we don’t try to turn Gentiles into Jews. Although some of our members are Messianic Jews, most of our members are actually Hebraic Christians who happen to know that Jesus was Jewish, that the early Church was also Jewish, and that New Testament Christianity was itself a form of Judaism. (In fact, we agree with Edith Schaeffer that Christianity Is Jewish!)
Here are some of the things you can do here at My Shalom Online:
The best way to learn Hebrew is to attend a Hebrew class at Shalom. However, there is a charge for our Hebrew classes (we have to pay our teachers) and if you are willing to study on your own there are lots of resources available online.
To learn the Hebrew alphabet, we recommend The Hebrew Alphabet Learning Program. It was originally designed to make students familiar with the Hebrew alphabet prior to their arrival in Israel, and has now been made available to members of the general public. It consists of animated games to make the learning process fun and easy. Unfortunately, the games don’t work on anything Apple (iPhones, iPads, iPods, or Apple computers running iOS). If you own a PC, or don’t mind going to a public library, this site will enable you to learn the Hebrew alphabet for free. Links to other online Hebrew resources are available here.
