A Global Association of Orthodox Jewish Believers in Messiah Yeshua
Messianic Jewish apologetics is not that difficult. Take any argument that a counter-missionary gives you and reduce it to an argument from the Torah, and you will win every time.
The word Torah has become increasingly popular in recent years partly due to the Hebrew Roots movement in Christianity and partly due to Kabbalah interest in the Media. Unfortunately overuse of the term has only served to add to the confusion. Part of the problem is that these modern writers can’t make sense of how Jewish writers are using the term.
We thought it would be good to take a moment and thoroughly define what Torah means so it doesn’t become just another buzz word in religious rhetoric. We hear questions all the time: “What is the Torah?” “Where did it come from?” “How does the Torah differ from the Bible?” In the rest of this article we will try to give a good introduction to Torah and how it plays a part in our lives.
The Torah, and the rest of the TaNaKh teaches that the Messiah would come twice for Israel, first to be rejected, despised, and killed; and then resurrected and to ascend to Heaven, and then come again to bring Israel to the Promised Land in the Olam Habah (World to Come). We see this when we understand that Messiah Yeshua is like Isaac, Joseph, Moses, and King David.
