What is Messianic Judaism?
Messianic Jews or Messianic Judaism are ethnically born Jewish people who believe Yeshua (Jesus’s Hebrew Name) is the Messiah spoken of in the Torah, writings, and prophets and died on the cross for the sins of all who believe. Messianic Jews include the Christian New Testament in their canon and believe that there are foreshadowing connections and messianic prophetic words of Jesus in the Old Testament.
It’s not unusual for people to think of Christians and Jews as being very different but at odds with each other. The last eighteen or nineteen centuries have provided more than enough reason to think that way. Many people may not know that the religious movement that came to be called “Christianity” was initially considered a Jewish sect called “The Way.” The earliest followers of Yeshua-Jesus were exclusively Jewish. They worshiped Him as the promised Messiah, the Son of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
