Many people who are participants in the Messianic experience find themselves stuck between an entrenched establishment holding onto power, and mavericks who give little respect to any kind of authority.
Messianic Apologetics editor John McKee is preparing to read through the book Confronting Old Testament Controversies by Tremper Longman III, and reviews some of the difficulties that many Messianic people might have from it.
Messianic Apologetics editor John McKee briefly summarizes some of the major factors, which will affect our interpretation and application of Moses’ Teaching: Ancient Israel, the Messiah Event, Jewish examination, Christian examination.
What kinds of difficulties are in possible store for Messianic people, as we are challenged to see things as God sees things—and think more theologically?
Some topics or issues do not get discussed, because a number of people have not conducted research or lack experience in the area. Yet other people lack the willingness to look into a matter, as well.
The most well-trained, well-researched, theologians and Bible teachers—will indeed spend a great deal of their lifetime, updating and fine-tuning their views and positions on different matters.
Today’s Messianic community widely stresses that God’s people need to have a Torah foundation. Yet, is not Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah to be our foundation?
Hopefully in a fair-minded and constructive way, Messianic Apologetics editor John McKee can explain at least one theological example of where we differ with many who forcefully identify as being part of the “Torah movement.”
