Messianic Apologetics

Addressing the Theological and Spiritual Issues of the Broad Messianic Movement

Two-House Teaching

In our day, a wide number of non-Jewish Believers, in significant numbers, have chosen to address what many throughout religious history have called, “the Ten Lost Tribes” of Israel issue. This has often taken place because of a strong interest by many Christians in the Hebraic Roots of our faith, and a renewed interest in Israel and their faith heritage in Judaism. A loose sub-movement, commonly known by the descriptions “Judah and Ephraim” or “Two-House” or “Messianic Israel,” has gained wide adherence in various sectors of the broad, modern Messianic movement. There is no doubting the fact that it has caused controversy, consternation, and even division among many Believers…

Mark and Margaret Huey, and John McKee discuss some of the major dilemmas that non-Jewish Believers have in the Messianic movement, the issue of Jewish and non-Jewish equality, and why things like the Two-House teaching have been so appealing to many non-Jews.
