Are Jews a people group or a religious group? One’s definition of what it means to be a Jew determines the definition of antisemitism.
Messianic Judaism, or Messianic Christianity (according to Orthodox Jews), is widely misunderstood and feared in both the Jewish and Christian communities. It’s time to clear the air.
Disclosure: YidBrik is an Orthodox Jewish project that seeks to build bridges between different variations of Judaism as well as improving Jewish-Christian relations. Despite this affiliation, YidBrik embraces a holistic perspective that goes beyond the typical limitations expressed by Orthodox Judaism.
What is Messianic Judaism?
Messianic Jews are Jews, halachic or otherwise, that believe Jesus is their messiah.
The notion of upgrading is a uniquely human problem. The concept is simple – there are improvements/revisions and thus a change that justifies upgrading and/or replacing. The famous Apple iPhone cycle is a perfect example of it: each year Apple comes out with a “better” handset and people upgrade to the newest device. Even the operating system is upgraded every year.
Better battery life.
