Messianic Apologetics

Addressing the Theological and Spiritual Issues of the Broad Messianic Movement

Messianic Lifestyle

Mark Huey of Outreach Israel Ministries delivers the following message entitled, “Passover: Paradox or Outreach?” There are many questions which circulate in today’s Messianic community during the season of Passover and Unleavened Bread. How is this to be an important time for us reaching out with the full message of the good news of Messiah Yeshua, to both the Jewish and Christian communities?

Judah and John discuss the pervasive problem of misinformation in the Messianic movement. Whether it’s laypeople sharing misleading videos from non-credible sources, or Messianic and Hebrew Roots teachers putting out sensational, misleading, or outright false teachings, the Messianic movement is struggling with misinformation in the information age. This leads to the secular world discrediting individuals – subverting their witness – and even discrediting the Messianic movement and our message about the Messiah. How can laypeople and non-experts in the Messianic movement know what’s real and what’s fake, what’s Biblical and what’s opinion? We discuss how to be better, wiser, discerning disciples in the age of misinformation.

J.K. McKee of Messianic Apologetics goes through the six study questions for Unit Five in The Messianic Walk workbook:

1. What do you, and/or your family, expect to get out of being a part of a Messianic congregation? Have you fully considered all, or at least most, of the dynamics of what it means to be involved in the restoration of Israel?

2. What might be some of the similarities, but also differences, between a Messianic Jewish congregation, and (a) a Jewish synagogue, (b) an evangelical Protestant church? Speculate if necessary.

3. Are you concerned at the presence of false teachings within the Messianic movement? How might this affect your involvement in a Messianic assembly? (If necessary, describe your experience.)

4. Do you have the perseverance and fortitude to truly see your involvement with the Messianic movement through, to whatever God has intended for it?

5. In your estimation, how important is it for the Body of Messiah to experience unity? Why do you think people have a tendency to divide over what are ultimately minor issues?

6. While Jewish and non-Jewish Believers do have their differences—do you think it is useful for Messianic congregations to focus on differences first, or common faith first? Which approach do you think will encourage unity, mutual honor and respect, and a pooling of gifts and talents?
