Marty Shoub is a Messianic Jew who lived and served in Israel for 8 years at The Tents of Mercy network of ministries. In 2013 God called Marty and his wife Sue back to Canada to focus his ministry endeavors on helping the Body of Messiah in the nations enter their calling towards God’s purposes for Israel and the Jewish people. He has had the opportunity to take this message of kingdom partnership to countries around the world. As a Bible teacher Marty is motivated to help followers of Yeshua get a deeper sense of the Father’s heart for His “first Born” and connect with their calling for the sake of Israel’s restoration and revival in the nations.
He graduated with a BA w/Honors in Theology from Briercrest College and a Masters of Jewish Studies from the Messianic Jewish Theological Institute. Marty is the author of “To The Jew First: The Formation of One New Man.” And “I Have Installed My King.” He continues his itinerant work among the nations as an associate with Return Ministries and as the Canadian representative of Tikkun Ministries. Marty and Sue have been married for 39 years and currently live in the Vancouver area close to their 3 children and 3 grand children.
The title of this book, “To the Jew First” may appear unsettling. To single out any group as somehow “first” and therefore special, grates against our assurance that no matter our background or status we are special too. From Sunday school on we are taught, “Jesus loves me, this I know” — the most basic truth of our relationship with God. The fact that Jesus loves me unconditionally as an individual removes any ethnic, racial, or economic privilege for any group of people. And yet, in one of the most cherished and important books in the Bible, Paul begins his letter to the church in Rome by proclaiming the gospel is first to Jews and then to Gentiles (Romans 1:16). How are we to understand a priority distinction for Jews when Jesus himself told us he came to give his life because, “God so loved the world…” Messianic Jewish author, Martin Shoub explores God’s plan “to create in Himself one new man from the two.” God’s mysterious plan from the beginning to set Jews and Gentiles in a relationship of mutual blessing. Martin has enlisted several Gentile friends to respond to each chapter. Each of these Christian leaders not only interacts with the material but tells their story of how the Holy Spirit illuminated their understanding to see their connection to Israel and the Jewish people – making this truly a “One New Man” book. **This book will be available for purchase at the event.
Yeshua is God’s appointed king. The angel Gabriel proclaimed, “He will reign over the House of Jacob forever” (Luke 1:33). Yeshua is Israel’s eternal ruler but His rule extends beyond Israel to all the nations of the world. As Daniel saw in his vision of heavens throne room, “And to him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve him” (Dan. 7:14). In God’s appointed order, God’s eternal king is also a priest forever. Because he offered himself in priestly service, Yeshua restored His father’s creation mandate for all humanity to rule over the planet. Yeshua is God’s appointed ruler but wonder of wonders, he will share his rule with us. Messianic Jewish author, Marty Shoub explores how the kingdom of God and the kingdom of Israel fit within the Creator’s original mandate to bestow the rulership of planet earth to humanity, that special creature He created in His own image and likeness. It is a true story filled with majesty and hope beyond any other. It is indeed the good news of the kingdom. **This book will be available for purchase at the event.
