Messianic Learning 

Unapologetically Pro-Torah
Unashamedly Pro-Israel
Irrevocably Zionist
“… out of Tziyon will go forth Torah, the word of ADONAI from Yerushalayim.”
(Isaiah 2:3)
Jew and Gentile (Synagogue and Church), one in Messiah. (Ephesians 2:14)
“For He is our peace, Who made both one, and broke down the middle wall of partition, …”

If your life is not in jeopardy for what you believe, you’re probably on the wrong side!
If you don’t believe Genesis 1-11, how can you possibly believe John 3:16?
“Indeed, all who want to live a godly life united with the Messiah Yeshua will be persecuted.” (2Tim 3:12)
It is what you actually believe that determines how you walk out your faith, “but avoid stupid controversies, genealogies, quarrels and fights about the Torah; because they are worthless and futile.” (Titus 3:9)

Messianic Issues

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. [Acts 21:26]

  … 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”? [Jeremiah 31:27-31]

  … 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. [Zechariah 8:23; Revelation 15:4; Revelation 21:24-26; Revelation+22:2]

  … 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.
