Messianic Judaism is a Biblically-based movement of people who, as committed Jews, believe in Yeshua (Jesus) as the Jewish Messiah of Israel of whom the Jewish Law and Prophets spoke. To many this seems a glaring contradiction. Christians are Christians, Jews are decidedly not Christian. So goes the understanding that has prevailed through nearly two thousand years of history. Historical and Biblical evidence demonstrates that following Yeshua was initially an entirely Jewish concept. Decades upon decades of persecution, division, and confused theology all contributed to the dichotomy between Jews and believers in Yeshua that many take for granted today. Messianic Judaism has emerged restoring the Biblical foundations of Jewish faith in Messiah. Yes you CAN believe in Yeshua and be Jewish! And non-Jews are welcome among us as well!
If you are new to Messianic Judaism, Rabbi Eric explains briefly the history, vision and purpose of our movement.
