Do you have Christian roots, but you’re interested in more deeply understanding the Hebrew Bible, also known as the Torah? Perhaps you want a more comprehensive look at how the Old and New Testaments are intertwined.
If this is the case for you, it may make sense to pursue Messianic studies with the help of a Messianic synagogue. But first, what is a Messianic Jew? If a person identifies as a Messianic Jew, she or he is a Jewish person who believes that Jesus is the Chosen One (or Messiah) who is the fulfillment of the Torah.
In the process of becoming more fully acquainted with the Messianic tradition, you may want to learn more about Hebrew practices and how they relate to Jesus the Messiah. As you gain a a greater knowledge, it may make sense to learn how to read Hebrew–perhaps through Hebrew podcasts–so that you can gain important insights that you may not get elsewhere.
When learning more about Messianic Judaism, it makes sense to go at your own pace and learn from people who have keen understanding of the spiritual practice.
