The articles listed on this page are either about Messianic Judaism and the relationship of the “Messianic Movement” to the “traditional Gentile Church,” or they contain information related to issues of Messianic concern.

If you aren’t familiar with Messianic Judaism, you probably don’t know that …

  … nobody who knew the Messiah in the flesh ever called Him “Jesus.” [CLICK HERE]

  … it is grammatically impossible to say the words “Jesus” or “Jehovah” in either Hebrew or Aramaic, the language of the first-century Messianic believers. [CLICK HERE]

  … Yeshua (Jesus) and His Talmidim (Disciples) were all Torah-observant Jews who never became “Christians.”

  … Rabbi Sha’ul (the Apostle Paul) never “converted” from Judaism to “Christianity, but even returned to Jerusalem from one of his missionary journeys to offer sacrifices in the Temple. [CLICK HERE]

  … until well after the end of the first century, almost all the followers of Messiah were Jewish, and “The Way” (as Messianic Judaism was then called) continued to be predominately Jewish until well into the fourth century CE.

  … a Jewish Believer in the Messiah does not become a Christian and stop being a Jew.

  … when Ruach HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit) came at Pentecost, the Jews upon whom He “fell” did not become “Christians.”

  … God’s “New Covenant” is for Israel and Judah, and not for “the Church”? [CLICK HERE]

  … the Bible never applies the word “Christian” to believing Jews, only to believing Gentiles. Even then it is a only translation of the Hebrew term “Messianic” into Greek, and may even have been used as a derogatory term.

  … the “Church” and “Christianity,” as we know it, did not come into existence until the fourth century.

  … the word “church” in the so-called “English New Testament” is a false translation of the same word used in the so-called “Old Testament” for the Holy Convocations of Israel. [CLICK HERE]

  … in the Messianic Kingdom [usually called “the Kingdom Age” by most Gentile theologians], Jews and Gentiles will worship Yeshua and offer sacrifices together in the Jerusalem Temple. [CLICK HERE]

  … there is a form of true Biblical faith today in which Jews and Gentiles can worship side-by-side as one in Yeshua the Messiah.

This form of Biblical Faith is called Messianic Judaism, and it is practiced today essentially as it was practiced by Yeshua and His first Talimidim. Of course, some things will have to wait until Messiah restores the Temple.
