Episode 198 - Jen Rosner

It is always a joy to welcome one of my professors to the podcast! This conversation with Jen Rosner was a true gem. Jen is a Messianic Jewish believer, which means she is Jewish and follows Jesus as her Messiah. Her unique perspective gives her a rich lens with which to view her faith and along with it, the complicated and complex relationship between Christianity and Judaism. In this episode, Jen shares her story of how she came to faith in Jesus. We chat about church history, including some of the shadow sides, and how embracing tension in our faith journeys can be rich and rewarding.

One thought on “Episode 198 – Jen Rosner

  1. It is always profitable to learn and question why we believe what we do. I take away from this podcast that tension is a growing process without it we stagnate and settle into complacency. Thank you both for your honesty.
