Isaiah 40:1-2: “Comfort, yes, comfort My people!” Says your God. 2 “Speak comfort to Jerusalem, and cry out to her””
In Exodus 34:6-7 we receive a revelation of G-d’s Divine nature: “The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin”
The Hebrew of the above scripture is: “ADONAI, ADONAI, EL rachum ve’channun, erech apayim, ve’rav chesed v’emet; no’tzer chesed lo’a’lo’afim, no’seh a’von va’phesha v’chata’a ve’nakeh”
The first about fifty to one hundred thousand Christians were mostly Jewish! This may seem like an astonishing statement, however, Acts 1:15 tells us that the 120 men and women, waiting in the Upper Room, who included the apostles, were all Jewish. In fact, it is safe to say that the first 3120 Christians were all Jewish. Allow me to explain this.
