Introduction:  Letter to the Messianic Jews (Hebrews)

Letter to the Messianic Jews

Why Study the Letter to the Messianic Jews? [1]

 The easy answer is because it’s the Word of God.  But for me, it’s personal.  After I committed myself to accept Yeshua as my Lord and Savior, I devoured the Gospel of John.  That is still my favorite book of the Bible, and someday I may do a verse-by-verse study of that.

Shortly after finishing that study, I picked up my RSV and Barclay’s Commentary and dove into the Epistle to the Hebrews.  For many years, I was eager to learn about the Jewishness of my faith, and I thought that would be an excellent place to start.  It turned out to be very influential in my later becoming involved in the Messianic Jewish Movement.

  1. Thanks for sharing, Vincent. I recently joined the Messianic movement. I graduated from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and was a Baptist pastor for three years. After perusing through Scripture, I came to the conclusion that there is indeed a strong continuity between the Old and New Testament as it relates to the Law of God.

    Since then, my views concerning the Sabbath, dietary laws, and celebration of Jewish festivals have changed. I am still trying to understand what Laws apply today, and what laws have been fulfilled in Christ. Blessings!
