Welcome: ECBY is a Tree of Life In’Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah that has taken away the sins of the world.
Goal of the Jewish people is to praise, thank, confess, obey, and make know the living God—be a light to the nations. Cannot be a light to the nations without shining light of Yeshua.
Goal of the Messianic Community—praise, thank, confess, obey and make know the living God—to make disciples of all nations—so that through Yeshua those far from the national life of Israel might be brought near.
Without Messianic Judaism (MJ), Judaism which accepts Yeshua (Jesus) as the Messiah, the Jewish people and the Church will fail to achieve their callings. Messianic Judaism is the vehicle for healing the schism between Christians and Jews, and will help them both fulfill their callings. There are 6 billion people in world; Christianity – 2 thousand year history – 1.5 billion claim to be Christian; Judaism – 4 thousand year history – 15 million Jews Messianic believers – several hundred thousand
MJs are called to be both MJ and Jewish—no need to choose—bringing reconciliation between the two.
MJ movement is small. Our success will not be from size; but because with God all things are possible. It is a calling whose time has come. Purposes of book:
Building a case for Messianic Judaism and defining the identity of both Jews and Gentiles that call themselves Jews/Gentiles/Christians/Born Again, and defining misconceptions of each.
History is the center of existence. History is the key to meaning, purpose and happiness. History explains why we are Messianic Believers.
Christian theology tends to underplay or misrepresent Jewish phenomena, Jewish theology ignores the New Testament. The church and the Jewish people must conform to biblical truth.
How should Messianic Judaism relate to the Torah? Having a clear understanding of God’s Torah is essential for any clearly defined understanding of our faith, Jew or Gentile.
The most important element in Messianic Jewish vision is holiness, not self-righteousness, not holier-than-thou attitudes, but holiness, without which no one will see the LORD.
Progression of the Messianic Movement, the greater picture.
Luke 24:27 Then beginning with Moses and with all the prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures.

And he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street.
And on either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall no longer be any curse; and the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His bond-servants shall serve Him; and they shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads.
And there shall no longer be night; and they shall not have need of the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because the Lord God shall illumine them; and they shall reign forever and ever.
And he said to me, “These words are faithful and true”; and the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, sent His angel to show to His bond servants the things which must shortly take place.
“And behold, I am coming quickly. Blessed is he who heeds the words of the prophecy of this book”…
“Behold I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.” Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter by the gates into the city.
“I, Yeshua, have sent My angel to testify to you these things for the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright morning star.”… He who testifies to these things says, “Yes I am coming quickly.” Amen. Come Lord Yeshua.
