Wokeism has been directly affected by the difficulties modern evangelicalism has faced regarding marriage, leadership roles of men and women, the rise of divorce, and the increasing number of single people.
Having constructive dialogue, and sorting through various complementarian and egalitarian perspectives of men and women—will only be possible when both sides can recognize the risks that both sides need to keep under control.
Many people in the Torah movement have lost sight of the most significant event in human history: the death, burial, and resurrection of Yeshua the Messiah. They frequently deny that we live in a post-resurrection era, with some new spiritual realities.
How can your ministry be egalitarian, meaning that both men and women share leadership roles equally, when Scripture says that the man is to be the head of the woman (Ephesians 5:23)?
J.K. McKee of Messianic Apologetics responds to three categories of questions: Tanach (OT), Apostolic Scriptures (NT), and theology/Biblical Studies.
1. Is it true that there are people in the Hebrew Roots movement who support polygamy?
2. The crowds recognized that God gave Yeshua a unique authority as a man.
3. What is the Messianic movement’s position on women in ministry?
Over the past few years, I have become consciously aware that some serious challenges and tension are in store for the Messianic movement. We are going through some growing pains, and issues are on the horizon that too many are unprepared for. The world at large is certainly not getting any less complicated, and globalization and the mass market mean that old ways of doing things may not necessarily work any more in the Twenty-First Century. Both the Jewish Synagogue and Christian Church are beginning to recognize this—which means the responsibility for Messianics is twice as high as it is for your average Jew or Christian. We need to be a people stirred to action, and guided by the Holy Spirit as we prepare to enter into a new chapter of our development.
J.K. McKee of Messianic Apologetics reviews how within some of the current debates over polygamy raging within the Hebrew Roots movement, that Yeshua’s own perspective of marriage in Matthew 19:1-12 is being left decisively out.
