Messianic Judaism, a Jewish religion in which followers who believe Jesus is the Messiah, is reportedly growing in Israel. Charisma News reports that the Messianic Judaism movement has
grown in Israel despite political and religious turmoil in the nation.
Messianic Jews are also becoming more accepted into society instead of being viewed as dangerous outcasts. Rabbi Barry Rubin for Charisma News wrote, “Over the past centuries, because of all the atrocities done to Jews in the name of Jesus, Jewish people have avoided having anything to do with Him, His followers, or His teachings. It was too costly, too risky. And in Israel, where people are more vulnerable to attacks, this is acutely so.
But Messianic Judaism is changing things. Now, Israelis are more open to talking about Yeshua and considering His claims to Messiahship. “Messianic Jewish congregations meet on Saturdays
and most services are in Hebrew. Though Messianic Jews believe Jesus to be the Saviour, the congregations are “clearly Jewish” Rubin wrote.
BIBLE STUDY: Ezekiel 11:17-20
PRAISE God that the Jewish people are being exposed to the person and teaching of Jesus. PRAY for many to acknowledge Him as Messiah.
