Through the pages of the new Messiah Journal we hope to continue to help shape the minds of the people of God, encourage the disciples of the Master, and instruct all believers in the life of Torah.
The crown jewel of the issue is an important new translation of Isaiah 53 based upon the Dead Sea Scroll version of Isaiah. The Great Isaiah Scroll has a few small variants, some of which are significant enough to completely change the reading of the text.
Historians, scholars, and theologians agree that first-century Christianity was a sect of Judaism, but where does that information place first-century Gentile Christians? What did it mean to be a Gentile who practiced Judaism in the days of the apostles?
Christian theology of Israel has changed more in the past hundred years than at any other time in the past eighteen hundred. The rise of dispensationalism, the establishment of the State of Israel, and the renewal of Jewish-Christian dialogue in the post-Holocaust era have all informed a modern movement of Christians who are supportive of the Jewish people and the Jewish state.
In Israel Matters, the author of Yeshua Matters takes a theology centered on Rabbi Yeshua of Nazareth one step further. Once we realize we are following a practitioner of Judaism, the King of Israel, and the promised Savior of the Jewish people, what happens to our theology of Israel?
Messianic cantor, musician, and songwriter Troy Mitchell
calls the world to awaken from slumber and hail the
coming redemption. Mitchell takes listeners on a spiritual
journey “singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs”
(Colossians 3:16) inspired from the psalms of David, the
biblical prophets, the New Testament, and synagogue
liturgy. This soulful wake-up call features English lyrics
ornamented with Hebrew and layered with Mitchell’s
uniquely crafted original melodies. Shake the slumber
from your sleeping soul.
The re-establishment of the land of Israel is a continuing miracle in our days that causes us to think about God’s faithfulness to his covenant. As a result, we can thank the Lord through celebrating Tu Bishvat with all Israel.
Perhaps you have never heard of Tu Bishvat, and have no idea about how to celebrate it. That’s okay! First Fruits of Zion has a great resource for you. In "PLANT" you will learn all about the holiday of Tu Bishvat.
Esta primera edición al español en 2018, contiene tres nuevos capítulos y un apéndice. El nuevo material explica cómo se aplica la Torá a los gentiles creyentes en Jesús, a través de la exploración de algunas enseñanzas que tratan este tema en el Nuevo Testamento.
Out of the fertile ground of the Torah, the living vine of David springs forth with wine preserved in its grapes since the creation of the earth. "I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit." (John 15:5) Artwork printed on high quality stock, ready for framing.
