The Jewish Truth About Communion

Born and raised Jewish, Jeffrey D. Miller turned away from God at an early age, becoming an avowed atheist. As an adult, he thought his secular humanist ways were the key to his exciting career in broadcasting. But in 1983, at the age of 36, Jeff had a miraculous encounter with the living God and surrendered his heart to Yeshua, the Jewish Messiah.

Six years later, the Lord confirmed a call He had given Jeff while visiting Israel, to travel the country telling the Jewish truth about Jesus.

In this powerful video, Jeffrey explains the connection between Passover and the Lord’s Supper.
