This is the 50th episode of the CrossTalk Podcast and the final episode of our second season. The discussion on this episode revolves around why the goal of the CrossTalk Podcast is to inspire others to have spiritual conversations. This episode is unique because it was recorded while doing a Facebook Live broadcast, so you will hear Cameron McElyea reading some of the Facebook comments and questions so that Wes, Sam, and James could respond live. We hope you find this episode edifying.

We hope this discussion will be edifying to you.

On today’s episode we discuss why it was easier for the Jew to understand and accept the gospel and why the gospel went first to the Jews, but why the Jews had to become Christians in order for them to be God’s covenant people. Many still do not understand that God’s covenant with the Jews was fulfilled and in order to be one of God’s covenant people, you must be submit to Jesus. Jewish heritage, like circumcision, does not make a person part of God’s covenant people. Those are a few of the things we discuss on this episode. We hope you find this discussion edifying.
