Key Quotes from Jason Sobel:
“I lost most of my family during the Holocaust, so being Jewish was something that was really important.”
“I had this encounter with this King, high and lifted up in this glorious light, and I didn’t know anything about Jesus, but I knew that was him sitting on that throne, and he told me I was called to serve him. Now, I had no idea what that meant, for a Jewish kid from New Jersey to serve Jesus.”
“I was blown away by how Jewish [the New Testament] was.”
“I gave my life to him, and I was completely transformed…it’s been a crazy journey.”
“There has been a loss of wonder…We have to restore this wonder and this mystery.”
“I like to describe the Scriptures as an ocean. It’s shallow enough that anyone can wade in it and enjoy, but it’s so deep that you can never plumb the depths of it.”
