Messianic Apologetics

Addressing the Theological and Spiritual Issues of the Broad Messianic Movement

Genesis

One of the most important Tanach narratives that deserves the attention of today’s Believers—particularly as it is employed later in the Apostolic Scriptures or New Testament— is the Flood of Genesis 6-8. We all know the story too well—as only Noah, his family, and two of every animal were spared. But what many do not know is that there are other Ancient Near Eastern accounts which portray a significant flood, somehow inflicting damage on the world—that may or may not parallel what we see in Genesis. What we are to do with these accounts, the role that they play in relationship to Genesis 6-8, and what they mean have baffled many interpreters. Some believe that the ANE myths appeared first, and were later adapted by the Ancient Hebrews in the compilation of the Torah. Others believe that the ANE myths are distorted forms of the true Biblical account. And others, not surprisingly, are confused and do not know what to believe, avoiding the subject altogether.

J.K. McKee of Messianic Apologetics responds to three categories of questions: Tanach (OT), Apostolic Scriptures (NT), and theology/Biblical Studies.

1. God established a Creation order in Genesis 3:16, didn’t He?

2. Paul upholds a Creation order in 1 Corinthians 11:3, doesn’t he?

3. Where do some people get the idea of a “mutual submission” between husbands and wives?

J.K. McKee of Messianic Apologetics responds to three categories of questions: Tanach (OT), Apostolic Scriptures (NT), and theology/Biblical Studies.

1. Can people who believe in evolution be saved?

2. Is it true that “works of law” does not mean Torah compliance, generally?

3. How do you as post-tribulationists respond to the claim that we are spared from God’s wrath?

J.K. McKee of Messianic Apologetics responds to three categories of questions: Tanach (OT), Apostolic Scriptures (NT), and theology/Biblical Studies.

1. Please tell me what the controversy is surrounding the Genesis 5, 11 genealogies.

2. Yeshua spoke to Mary Magdalene about their God.

3. Yeshua promises that Believers are spared from the hour of testing. This is strong support for a pre-tribulation rapture.
