Messianic Apologetics

Addressing the Theological and Spiritual Issues of the Broad Messianic Movement

The subject of the Messiah’s return is one of the most controversial in the religious world today. If we believe that Yeshua is the Savior, then hopefully we will believe His words and what He told us about how He would return. However, for some, taking the Messiah’s words as our instruction concerning His Second Coming is difficult. Unfortunately, there exists competing factions, views, and creeds across the theological spectrum. Each often has an agenda and something at stake when it comes to the return of the Messiah. While this is certainly true of much of today’s evangelical Christianity, even today’s broad Messianic movement is not immune to competing eschatological views and debates.
Many believe that the Messiah can return at any moment, but ignore other Scripture passages which speak of something else taking place. What does the Bible say about the end-times? How are we to view eschatology from a distinct Messianic perspective? These are the questions which we need to be seriously contemplating, as we collect our thoughts, and are presented with the critical concepts and ideas surrounding the Messiah’s return.
