For I am not ashamed of the Good News, since it is God’s powerful means of bringing salvation to everyone who keeps on trusting, to the Jew especially, but equally to the Gentile.
Romans 1:16 CJB
Messianic Judaism is a Biblically-based movement of people from all walks of life, who have placed their trust in Yeshua (Jesus), the Jewish Messiah of Israel of whom the Torah and Prophets spoke.
Messianic Judaism is actually 2,000 years old. This movement dates back to the time of the Messiah Yeshua. Historically, Yeshua was Jewish. He was raised in a Jewish home, connected with and ministered to Jewish people in a Jewish land, the Land of Israel. His disciples were Jewish. The apostles were Jewish. The writers of the B’rit Chadashah (New Covenant) were Jewish, and for a time, the faith was strictly Jewish.
Some historians believe that more than one million Jewish people in the first century A.D. believed that Yeshua was the Messiah, both in Israel and outside of Israel (Acts 2:37-42, 4:4, 10: 34-43, 21:20). They didn’t renounce their heritage, their customs, or their people. They remained Jews.
Two thousand years later, hundreds of thousands of Jewish people still follow Yeshua, also believing that He is the Messiah. They, too, have not renounced their heritage, customs, or their people. Today, Biblical Messianic Judaism is the modern movement that is bringing it all together, for Jews and Gentiles worshiping Yeshua together.
The foundation of Biblical Messianic Judaism, therefore, is each individual’s personal relationship with the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob through Messiah Yeshua. In the Torah G-d clearly demands a blood sacrifice for the remittance of sins. Each individual, both Jew and Gentile alike, recognizes his or her own sinfulness and has accepted that Yeshua Himself provided this sacrifice.
As we recognize what the Bible refers to as “the end times” and the “age of the Gentiles” coming to an end, we see a transition happening before our eyes.
We are transitioning back to the foundations of the original Messianic Communities led by Jewish men, along with Gentile believers in Yeshua who were truly grafted in to the Olive Tree. We are committed to continuing this G-d ordained order until the coming of Yeshua.
