We must recover the foundation and root of our faith in order to have an accurate understanding of God’s purpose for Israel as well as His purpose for the Church. Jesus Was Not A Christian was written to help recover that most-important foundation. An insufficient grasp of this crucial fact will not only marginalize Jesus’ mission while on earth but will also marginalize our call as the Church to provoke Israel to jealousy.  FIND OUT MORE

In this book Scott tells his story of how God restored his heart for Israel. Scott’s story resonates with me on a personal level because the Lord has recently done a similar work in my heart. Like Scott, I have come to experience my faith, the Christian faith, in a more profound and personal way than I ever thought possible simply by understanding it the way it was meant to be understood. That is, within the framework of the original Hebraic faith—the spiritual, sociological, and historic context of the Hebrew people. My prayer is that through this book you’ll have a fresh encounter with the Messiah, and that your faith would explode with new meaning as you see it anew. My hope is that God will burden your heart for His people and restore in the church a renewed vision to fulfill its calling to “provoke Israel to jealousy” (Romans 11:11).

Scott Volk is my friend. He’s uncomplicated, unusually friendly, even to a total stranger. He is passionately in love with his family, his friends, and his God. He is generous, lighthearted, and given to communication as an art form. Why these words about him and his personality? Because I don’t want you to make the mistake of reading the first few paragraphs of this book and dismiss it as being too simple, not meaty enough, or shallow. And because like this author, underneath the easygoing demeanor lies some very deep waters that have weathered storms that have cast too many others on the rocks…never to sail again. Please read every page, consider the questions and answers offered here, and I bet you will find yourself saying something like, “That makes good sense now that you mention it!” You may even find yourself coming back again and again to use this work as a reference and guide. Yes, it’s true, Yeshua is the Jewish Messiah who came for the lost sheep of the House of Israel, and He also loves you with the exact same passion and fire. The question is, do you love Him enough to love today’s lost sheep of the House of Israel?

Scott Volk has discovered a treasure to understanding the Scriptures. Jesus Was Not a Christian will open the reader’s heart and mind to understand the Scriptures from a Hebraic perspective, igniting a fresh passion to embrace the Jewish Jesus. This book is for every believer who desires a fresh encounter with the Messiah of the Bible.

I would recommend Jesus Was Not a Christian even if I didn’t know Scott. However, I do know him and can happily say that this book reflects Scott’s personality and character. A result of his profound wrestling with God, this book is engaging, winsome, honest, knowledgeable, and insightful. It is a perfect introduction to help disciples discover the biblical origins of their faith. The reality is that most of the Church has forgotten that Jesus is Jewish. This book is a good reminder of that basic truth and, through a beautiful birds-eye view of the Scriptures, explores the ramifications of the Father’s heart for His people. As I’ve watched Scott grow in his ministry, Together for Israel, I’ve been amazed at the favor that has flowed through him manifest in liberality. With the same openness of spirit, Scott’s calling to reveal God’s heart for Israel is evidenced in his writing. Scott does not only impart truth through his writing, he gives away his heart (1 Thessalonians 2:8). In contrast with the faddish dismissal of Israel’s importance in our nation’s churches, this personable book is scrupulously biblical. Many realize that conservative Christian support for the Jewish people is under systematic attack. It can no longer be taken for granted. In the light of this, Jesus Was Not a Christian will help fortify, educate, and inoculate the Church against this ancient invidious hatred. I intend to purchase numerous copies to give away. I expect it to inform, aid in intercession, and inspire responsible action.

Scott Volk is a gem of a brother in Christ. I am honored to call him “friend.” I have a deep appreciation for his heart and his sense of mission. His new book is an invitation to realize that indeed the Savior of the World, Jesus our Messiah, was a descendent of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. He was a Hebrew; He was a Jew. In His conversation with the woman of Samaria, Jesus makes it clear that “salvation is of the Jews.” Jesus IS our salvation. The Jewish roots of the Gospel are uncontested as far as the grand narrative of Scripture is concerned. The term “Christian” doesn’t even appear in the primitive Church until the Church in Antioch was emerging in Gentile territory, where the disciples were first called “Christians.” Scott invites you on a journey through the Sacred Text with an objective of inviting you to see the Story of the ancient faith with fresh eyes and fresh appreciation for the Jewish roots of the Gospel. Scott will invite you to develop great hope for a glorious future both for the Jews as well as the Gentiles. After all, Paul tells us that the Gospel is to be preached to the Jew first, and then to the Gentiles. Scott’s words, if you take them to heart, will inspire your faith and hope for the rich possibilities revealed in the promises of God as it relates to a glorious future, which Paul foresaw for the nations and for Israel, with great assurance by the Spirit.

Scott Volk is a dear friend. He is a tremendous voice and incredible man of God. He has taken the time to obey the Lord in putting together a much-needed resource for all who truly love Jesus. By discovering the biblical origins of our faith, the content found here will greatly challenge you to love Jesus, as He is, and not just the created idea of who He is. The topics discussed throughout will provide the necessary biblical insight to frame in the conversation in a way that is confronting and inviting, simultaneously. This book will stir your heart, open your eyes, and cause you to fall more deeply in love with Jesus and His mission, pertaining to Israel and the nations of the earth.

Jesus Was Not a Christian is a clear, concise, and engaging read that will open your eyes to a biblical truth lost to the Church for centuries. Anyone who cares about the return of Jesus should read this book.

Scott Volk is a man who has given his life to partner with the Church for the salvation of Israel. His clear message and a prophetic voice come through powerfully in Jesus Was Not a Christian. In a time when anti-Semitism is rising around the world, more than ever, the Church needs to understand God’s heart for the Jewish people and the nation of Israel. I highly recommend this timely book to every Christian.

Evangelist Daniel Kolenda

President, Christ for All Nations

Everyone who knows Scott Volk loves him, with very good reason. Scott is a servant with a big pastoral heart. Beyond his commendable character, however, he is also a man of tremendous theological clarity with a lifetime of wisdom to offer. As Christians globally continue to awaken to the Jewish roots of our faith, it is imperative that we listen to the right teachers who have been raised up and anointed by the Lord to speak into this very critical subject. No doubt, Scott is a father who we would all do well to listen to. For anyone who desires to better understand the very Jewish context of the Bible, the life of Jesus, and their role in this unfolding story, this book will become a welcome and essential addition to their library.

I just finished reading Jesus Was Not a Christian by Scott Volk and Robert Gladstone and enjoyed their fresh approach to the study of Jesus’ Jewishness and God’s plan for Israel. I loved the combination of biblical and historical studies and the warmth of their stories, especially Scott’s personal testimony woven throughout the book.  I was completely drawn in by the coherent sweep of the story of Israel’s redemption as Scott and Bob take us through on a journey through biblical and Jewish history from the Old Testament to the New and then beyond to the formation of the modern state of Israel. This book would be a wonderful tool for family devotions, an adult Sunday school class, or for believers who are wanting a better understanding of their spiritual heritage and connection to the Jewish people. Scott’s love for Israel and his people is evident from the book which led him to begin Together for Israel, a ministry that helps others develop this same love and enables Jewish and Gentile believers to put that love into action through serving needy Israelis.  Thank you so much, Scott and Robert, for taking the time to share this book and the message of Jesus the Jewish Messiah with whomever has the joy of reading the book.

If you do not understand the Jewishness of Jesus, you will not understand the Jew and Israel. If you are wrong in your understanding of the Jew and Israel, you will have your end-time understanding wrong and enter into further heresy!
