Bridge Between Judaism and Christianity

Guest Blog by Lynwood Johnson

Many Messianic see our movement as a bridge between Judaism and Christianity.

To the Jews, we’re advocates of their own ‘favorite son,’ (though only a small minority of Jews now recognize that) who now reigns as their – and our – great High Priest who Himself was their – and our – Perfect Sacrifice who removes the sins of all who trust Him w their lives and eternity.

On the other shore we’re a place for many believers who have a (Spirit induced?) disquiet that has led them out on a search in the belief there is much more to their Christian faith than what they are hearing where they’ve been attending.

They say when they find our place, they are Amazed!  They start seeing a deeper texture in the Jewish heritage that’s so foundational to almost every NT event.

They learn from Messianic Jew (the apostle Paul) in Romans 11, that the future of Jews and Christians is inextricably bound together.

They learn that “the  Church is the New Israel, and God’s promises no longer apply to the nation of Israel any more, but to the Church”  is not only not supported Biblically,  but in fact heresy.

(Look up Supersessionism to learn more)

In short, it’s the heresy that the Church has superseded Israel.  Also known as ‘replacement theology.’
