Since 1967, the Messianic Jewish movement has grown leaps and bounds, but it started long before that. Peter and Paul were Messianic Jews before the New Testament was written and canonized. Also, Moses and Elijah confirmed Jesus (Yeshua) as the Messiah on the mount of “Transfiguration” (Luke 9: 28-35, Mark 9: 1-13, Matthew 17: 1-13, 2 Peter 1: 16-18).
Messianic Jewish Congregations are often referred to as “one new man” congregations. Speaking to believers, Paul wrote: “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3: 28 NASB).
Click here to see what Messianic Jews (and like-minded Gentiles) believe. (I am not inferring that every Christian should leave his or her Bible believing local church and join a Messianic congregation. Instead, I hope to clear up some misunderstandings I have read on the subject.)
Read Romans 11: 1-36 (especially verse 25) also. It’s the key to what Paul calls “the mystery.”
