When someone attacks the messenger instead of the message it is indeed a sad thing. I was upset and passionate about the presence of Jews for Jesus, Messianic Jews—also known as Hebrew Christians— and other missionaries at the Celebrate Israel Festival.
Messianic Judaism is a branch of Judaism that is trying to act as a link between Judaism and Christianity. Those who follow this form of Judaism are referred to as Messianic Jews. So how many of them are there? Let’s find out.
When missionaries like Jews for Jesus, Messianic Jews and a host of other such organizations, share the belief that Jesus was Messiah and G-d. In doing so, they are espousing a belief system which is Christian, not Jewish.
The growth of the Jews for Jesus and Messianic movements in Israel, especially during Israel’s 60th Anniversary, is unprecedented and an outcome of unrestrained relationships with evangelical Christians. There are more than 15,000 “Messianic Jews” residing in Israel and more than 275,000 in the Diaspora.
