A Low Hamartology

14 September, 2016 J.K. McKee 0

originally posted 13 September, 2009 reproduced from the Messianic Torah Helper What is the problem with holding to a low theology of sin (hamartology), and how do we see this problem fixed? I had a very interesting dream the other night, but before I begin, let me say something: I don’t have dreams. This does not mean that I am not spiritual, it just means that the Lord usually communicates to me through prayer or His Word. This dream, however, was pretty interesting. It involved me consciously picking up various books and commentaries in my library, and closely examining and […]

Israel in Future Prophecy: Afterward

6 September, 2016 J.K. McKee 0

Most likely, if you have been diligently reading Israel in Future Prophecy, it is fair to say that you are a non-Jewish Messianic Believer who has been curious as to what my perspective is regarding the whole “Two-House” controversy—or you might be a Messianic Jewish Believer who knows that our broad faith community needs some resolution to this issue, as time proceeds forward, and as theological and spiritual challenges of much more major substance and importance present themselves (i.e., debates over the Divinity of Yeshua and His Messiahship). There have been a number of sensational and hype-laden books circulate throughout […]

TorahScope, Volume I

15 August, 2016 messianicapologetics 0

Every week in Jewish synagogues the world over, a selection of a few chapters is considered from the Torah (the Pentateuch or the Law of Moses). The discipline of reading the parashah or Torah portion on Shabbat (the Sabbath) has helped maintain the cohesion of the Jewish people for millennia. As Messianic congregations have been formed, this tradition is something which has helped enliven the Bible readings and studies of those, Jewish Believers and evangelical Christians embracing their Hebraic Roots alike, who look to Moses’ Teaching to tell us something about the relationship each of us is to have with […]

Messianic Fall Holiday Helper

4 August, 2016 messianicapologetics 0

The Fall holiday season of Yom Teruah/Rosh HaShanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot—also including Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah—is a very special, sacred time of year for God’s people. It is considered to be the most holy time of year in Judaism. As such, this season can teach us all important things about the great value of corporate repentance of sin, and an annual inspection of our individual spiritual maturity. We can learn lessons about the Lord’s ongoing plan of salvation history, especially the Second Coming of Yeshua the Messiah (Jesus Christ) and the future establishment of His Millennial Kingdom!

Kashrut: Kosher for Messianic Believers

3 August, 2016 messianicapologetics 0

Today’s Messianic community widely believes and advocates that our Heavenly Father is  restoring the significance of kashrut or the kosher dietary laws, chiefly found in Leviticus 11 and Deuteronomy 14, to all of His people. Messianic Believers, in desiring to see themselves fully consecrated to the Lord, find a great deal of not only blessing but also critical focus, in how the Creator God desires His own to consecrate their eating unto Him. Far too many of not only our Christian comrades, but even Messianic Believers’ Jewish brethren, have not understood how the hallowing of something as seemingly mundane as […]

Shabbat: Sabbath for Messianic Believers

29 July, 2016 messianicapologetics 0

Today’s Messianic community widely believes and advocates that our Heavenly Father is restoring the significance of the seventh-day Sabbath or Shabbat to all of His people. Messianic Believers, in desiring to see themselves fully consecrated to the Lord, find a great deal of not only blessing but also critical focus, in how the Creator God desires His own to consecrate an entire day unto Him. Far too many of not only our Christian brothers and sisters, but even Messianic Believers’ Jewish brethren, have not understood how the hallowing of the Sabbath day, has some great significance and substance in terms […]
