Prepare for Holy Week and come support the Saint John’s Haiti Mission Trip this June by attending the Seder Meal in the Large Fellowship Hall on Wednesday, March 28, at 5:30 PM. The 6:00 PM presentation by Larry Dubin, a Jews for Jesus missionary, will help us to see the traditional and Christological symbolism of the meal as we enjoy the various foods.
About Jews for Jesus
Jews for Jesus is an agency founded in 1973 that proclaims that Jesus is the Messiah of Israel and Savior of the world. The organization has permanent branches in eight North American cities as well as over 127 volunteer chapters spanning some 41 states and five countries. Jews for Jesus uses creative methods and contemporary issues to present the message that Jesus is the Messiah to Jewish people around the world.
About the Speaker
Larry Dubin was raised in what he terms a “secular Conservative Jewish” home. By the age of 13, he had rejected religion and put all his hopes in attaining personal goals of career, financial security and marriage. After graduating from the University of New Mexico in 1989 with a Bachelor of Business Administration, he received a commission as an ensign in the United States Navy. He started to read the Bible on a nuclear powered submarine and he came to faith in the Messiah of Israel, the Lord Jesus, in January 1994.
He believed that God wanted him to share that gospel with others on a full-time basis and pursued training at Dallas Theological Seminary to prepare for a change in careers. Dubin connected with Jews for Jesus and participated in their Summer Witnessing Campaign in 1998. He joined the staff and participated in their 1999 campaign as well. He now serves as an evangelist with the organization’s Washington, DC, branch. His wife Deb serves alongside him there.
To Larry Dubin and other Jews for Jesus staff, the objective evidence of the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament, and the transformation in their own lives provide ample evidence that Jesus was who he claimed to be—the Jewish Messiah.
What better way to reflect on this Messiah—our Passover Lamb—than by participating in a traditional Seder Meal! And what better way to witness to those around you than by bringing your family, friends, and neighbors!

“Hesed” is a Hebrew word that means “kindness”, “mercy”, “loyalty”, “loving-kindness” or “steadfastness.” It’s the way God intends us to live together—a “love your neighbor as yourself”, active, selfless, sacrificial, caring-for-one-another brand of living contradictory to our fallen natures. The “Heseders” are continually looking to work together to share some small measure of God’s extraordinary love. Won’t you join us?
