WHAT IS MESSIANIC JUDAISM?
"Messianic Judaism is a spiritual renaissance, a revival, a return to the faith as Messianic Jews had in the first-century, unencumbered by the traditions of men. It is a return to a pure and simple faith based upon having a living, vibrant and personal relationship with the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, through the Messiah Yeshua."
MESSIANIC JUDAISM or ORAL LAW?
"Rabbinic Judaism has existed for hundreds of years without a major emphasis on the Messiah because the foundation of Rabbinic Judaism is the Oral Law – the writings of the rabbis. The foundation of Messianic Judaism, on the other hand, is the person of Messiah spoken of in the Jewish Scriptures."
HEBREW ROOTS MOVEMENT CRITIQUE
This is a doctrinal position paper, written by the International Alliance of Messianic Congregations and Synagogues (IAMCS) Steering Committee. It addresses certain errors which threaten the God ordained relationship between Gentile and Jewish believers. It concludes that our relationship is not found in law, and/or observances of ordinances or statutes; but, rather, "in the fellowship that we enjoy as both Jew and Gentile, cleansed by the blood of Messiah, and immersed by One Spirit into the same Body. Together we are the “seed of Abraham” by faith in the one God, and joint heirs of a Kingdom that will never fade."
