John McKee delivers the March 2023 Outreach Israel News update.
The Messianic world of the 2020s is not going to be like the 2000s or 2010s which preceded it.
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 continues going through a long list of reader-submitted questions and issues: no connection to the Jewish philosophical tradition.
The Messianic movement of the 2020s will have no choice, but to confront issues of modernity and post-modernity—if it truly intends to survive and not lose the next generation.
