The Message of James

21 February, 2017 J.K. McKee 0

reproduced from James for the Practical Messianic a summary for Messianic teaching and preaching Much of today’s Messianic movement places a high value on the Epistle of James and its message for Believers.[1] In a Christian world that has lost much of its moral compass, an emphasis on practical holiness, and a realization that good works are required of God’s people—James offers an antidote to counter much contemporary complacency. To the brother of Yeshua, faith in God is not just about some kind of mental ascent or speaking written creeds; it is about performing the actions which are reflective of […]

reproduced from The Pastoral Epistles for the Practical Messianic a summary for Messianic teaching and preaching The texts of Scripture which are commonly known as the Pastoral Epistles, composing the letters of 1&2 Timothy and Titus, frequently go unaddressed in today’s Messianic community.[1] Perhaps unlike letters such as Romans, Galatians, Ephesians, or even 1 Corinthians—where Messianics typically already know that some more detailed investigation and consideration is required for background and linguistic points—many already believe that they know what these three letters communicate. This is not necessarily the case in Biblical Studies over the past two to three decades, where […]
