This is a sermonic style visual demonstration of the Passover Seder (Service) as celebrated by Jesus with his disciples at the Last Supper. It explores the traditional symbolic items and foods of the Passover feast and explains how they are fulfilled in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus our Passover Lamb. This presentation is suitable for any Sunday, but is especially meaningful with a communion service. (Please book our missionaries well in advance to avoid disappointment if booking for an Easter service)
The Messiah In The Passover Banquet is a reenactment of the Passover Seder (Service) celebrated in Jewish homes each year. Many elements of today’s Passover Seder date back to biblical times, and would have been celebrated by Jesus at the Last Supper, which was a Passover celebration. The purpose of the Banquet is to demonstrate how God’s redemption of Israel from slavery foreshadows Jesus’ redemption of all humanity from sin and death. The symbols and story of Passover point to our salvation through faith in Jesus our Passover Lamb. Participants sit down to a 3-course meal incorporating symbolic foods and items which are explained and partaken of throughout the Banquet. The Messiah In The Passover Banquet is typically booked from February to June, and is particularly popular at Easter.

The Apostle Paul said that ‘the Law was our guardian to lead us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith (Galatians 3:24). The Gospel in the Feasts of the Lord demonstrates how the Jewish feasts of Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot point to the Messiah. Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets) teaches us about our need for repentance. Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) points to the forgiveness of sin through faith in the Messiah, and Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles/Booths) reminds us to rejoice in the presence of the Lord. This presentation is typically booked for the months of September and October.
The Feast of Hanukkah (Dedication) dates back to approximately 150 years before the birth of the Messiah and is mentioned in the Gospel of John (John 10:22-23). It celebrates the rededication of the Temple, and God’s faithful preservation of the Jewish people in preparation for the entrance of the Messiah. This presentation is typically booked for the months of November and December.
The feast of Purim as described in the Book of Esther tells a poignant story of God’s faithfulness, steadfast love and sovereignty throughout history even as he orchestrates events from “behind the scenes.” Find out why Purim is observed by the Jewish people and be enriched by the lessons we can learn from this Jewish Feast.
Did you know that Pentecost is a Jewish Holiday? Shavuot, the Feast of Weeks or ‘Pentecost’ as it is called in the New Testament, is a late spring holiday in the Jewish Calendar which is rich with meaning and significance. While most Christians know of the powerful events of Pentecost in Acts 2, few are aware of the historical yearly observance that pointed toward it. This presentation helps Christians make the connection between the biblical Festival of Shavuot with its ultimate fulfillment in the New Testament.
All of our missionaries have a vibrant personal testimony about how we came to know our Messiah and Lord Yeshua (Jesus). We find that believers are inspired, encouraged and deeply moved by hearing how the Lord is reaching out to Jewish people today. In addition to testimonies, each missionary is trained and equipped to deliver a powerful and personal message from the Word.
This presentation gives insight into some of the most pivotal messianic prophecies in the Old Testament. We explain how these ancient prophecies are all uniquely fulfilled through the life and ministry of Jesus, proving that he is the promised Jewish Messiah and the Saviour of the whole world.
This presentation examines the relationship between the Church and the Jewish people through the message of the Apostle Paul in Romans 9 –11. It highlights God’s everlasting faithfulness to His covenant people, and helps believers understand the biblical basis for Jewish evangelism.

This sermon explores the foundational truths of God’s covenant with Israel. It looks at the calling of Abraham, the choosing of the Land, and God’s plan of salvation for the world involving the nations and Israel. The title comes from Jeremiah 31:35-37. This presentation furnishes Christians with a biblical perspective about Israel and the Middle East, and helps interpret current events.
This is a clear and informative exposition of the Apostle Paul’s teaching on the Jewish roots of the Christian faith in Romans 9 –11. This is an important message for the Church today as Paul strongly admonishes the Church to remember that”you do not support the root, but the root supports you” (Romans 11:18)
Why did the woman who had a long-term illness push through the crowds to touch the hem of Jesus’ garment? This informative presentation delves into the biblical background of the meaning of the tzitziot (tassels) of the garments worn by Jewish men, and challenges the believer to a deeper walk of faith, and a realisation of the power of God in our lives
This message explores the unique relationship between Jews and Gentiles in the body of Messiah as described by the Apostle Paul (Ephesians 2:11-22). It highlights the redeeming work of Jesus in making Jews and Gentiles one in Him, with the dividing wall of hostility broken down. It is a message about the peace and unity God has brought to Jews and Gentiles, through faith in Jesus the Messiah.
One of the two prayers in the Bible written by God Himself (see The Power of the Priestly Blessing), this presentation expounds on the Jewish background of the most well-known Christian prayer, the prayer that Jesus the Messiah taught his disciples to pray – the Lord’s Prayer – and explores the application of the prayer for believers in Jesus today. This presentation can be given as part of a series with the presentation The Power of the Priestly Blessing.
This presentation explores the meaning and application of one of the most majestic prayers in the Bible, the prayer God gave to Aaron to bless the children of Israel, also known as the Aaronic Benediction. Its majestic rhythm, centred on the Name of God, has endeared itself to the hearts of believers for thousands of years and has played a central role in Jewish and Christian liturgy. One of the two prayers in the Bible written by God Himself (see The Jewishness of the Lord’s Prayer), it explains how the blessing was used in the Bible and in Jewish tradition.
Jesus the Jewish Rabbi explores the Jewishness of Jesus (Yeshua), his didactic methods, his power and authority and his call to discipleship. It will help Christians understand Jesus from a Jewish perspective, exploring the original context of the Gospels and encouraging active discipleship.
This message explores Jesus’ teaching about the most important commandment: To ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind’ and to ‘Love your neighbour as yourself’ (Matthew 22:37–40). This message will expound the meaning of the most important Jewish prayer, the “Shema” (from Deuteronomy 6:4-5), revealing the key to powerful and dynamic discipleship.
Celebrate Messiah was founded in 1995 and has been “Bringing the Gospel to the Original Messengers” ever since. Our missionaries will share with your church about the amazing work God is doing amongst Jewish people today. Find out how Celebrate Messiah is reaching out to Jewish people locally, as well as through our outreaches in Israel, New Zealand and Far East Russia.
Many people ask how they can witness to a Jewish person. This presentation is designed to equip the believer with the biblical principles needed and practical guidance in sharing the Gospel with a Jewish friend. The topics covered by the seminar include Jewish sensitivities to the Gospel, basic “how-to’s” on sharing the Gospel with Jewish people, and how to answer Jewish objections to the Gospel. There is time for questions and answers as well. This is an excellent tool for teaching on evangelism, not just for witnessing to Jewish people.
Celebrate Messiah partners with schools and seminaries to deliver various presentations for a chapel service, a class, conference or missions fair. It is a great opportunity for students to learn more about Jewish missions and how they can participate in short-term ministry in Australia, New Zealand, Israel, and other exciting places
