Reggie White - Football
Great & Messianic Believer
Many of you are probably aware football defensive great,
Reggie White, died recently.
What many do not know is that the man know as a the "Minister of Defense" was a
mighty man of G-d, and a Messianic Believer.
While listening to Fox News as they announced Reggie's death, they mentioned
that in his final years he had been studying Judaism. This statement probably
confused many as they knew him as a fiery Baptist Preacher who tackled
controversial issues like he tackled quarterbacks, head-on, from the Word of
During Reggie's last year in football, one of His friends had given him a
teaching on Torah by Monte Judah. This teaching open Reggie's eyes to the mighty
Hebrew Roots of Scripture and lead to study both Torah and Hebrew. According to
Reggie, it opened his eyes to see Scripture as never before.
Please pray for Reggie's family and friends as they struggle with his loss.
Below is Monte Judah's Web Posting.
On December 26, 2004 my friend and brother in the
faith Reggie White died. Reggie was best known in the world of
professional football. He was a defensive end and until this last year
had the NFL record for quarterback sacks at 198. There are some who say
that Reggie was the greatest defensive player in the history of the
game. Reggie was known as the Minister of Defense and was open about his
Christian testimony. He was controversial and took issue with the social
ills of abortion, homosexuality, and the treatment of the black
minorities. In recent years, people began to notice that there was a
change in his testimony and faith. He no longer wanted to play the role
as attention getter for churches because of his football career. He
wanted to be known more as a man of God. How did I know of him?
In his final year as a player, some of Reggie’s friends gave him my
teaching tape set Introduction to Torah. According to him, it opened his
eyes to see Scripture as never before. We agreed to meet after he
retired and the football season was over. I stayed as a guest in his
home and came to know his wife and two children. When I shook his hand,
it felt like sticking my hand in a catcher’s mitt. When he hugged me, he
had to bend over. His size made me feel like a little boy.
Reggie began to grow in his Messianic faith. He studied Hebrew and
the Torah. I didn’t have as much time with him as I wanted, but his
friendship was genuine and real. Why would God take him home so early,
just as he was emerging as a man of God more than the football great?
Some men have great testimonies of God in life. But, men of God have
even greater testimonies after death. Reggie’s testimony is just
starting to become known.
Please pray for Reggie’s wife, Sara, and his two children, Jeremy and
