I’m in the process of learning about the Jewish roots of my Christian faith and really enjoyed reading your Website. I’m praying for discernment as I learn, so that I don’t fall into any false teachings out there, especially regarding “Messianics” , Zionism and Christians. I look forward to receiving your information and free CD, “Knowing the Real Jesus.”. Thank you so much and may you be richly blessed in your ministry.

In addition to sending you our free CD, “Knowing the Real Jesus”, I’m also going to mail you my book, “Christians Are Not Under the Law of Moses”. I believe this book will help you achieve a better understanding of our Jewish roots as Christians without falling into the legalistic errors and false teachings of many Messianics and Judaisers today.
A key Scripture to always keep in mind is, Galatians 3:28, “There is no longer Jew nor Gentile, slave nor free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus.”
In Jesus Christ the Messiah, the middle wall of separation has been cast down between Jews and Gentiles, therefore we are “one new man” in the Body of Christ. The religious and racial segregation practiced by some Messianics today is unscriptural. All Christians should be able to worship together in the unity of the Spirit without making any distinctions regarding race, color, or ethnic background.
Having said all that, I still believe in the importance of keeping the Ten Commandments, the sanctity of (Saturday) Sabbath observance, the veneration of God’s original Holy Days (Passover, Pentecost, Feast of Trumpets, Feast of Tabernacles, Yom Kippur, etc.), and supporting the nation of Israel.
I pray that the Holy Spirit will give you discernment, and that you will find the right balance between studying about the Jewish roots of our Christian faith without going to the legalistic extremes that many have in the Messianic movement.
Please let me know if you have any further questions.
Yours in Messiah Jesus,
Pastor Luis Yosefus
