Are you a Christian who wants to learn more about the Hebrew roots of your faith? Perhaps you feel that you’d like to strengthen your Christian roots by studying the Hebrew Bible. If either of these are the case, it may make sense for you to take part in activities at a Messianic synagogue.
But you may be asking yourself, “What is a Messianic Jew?” Essentially, this is a person who believes that Jesus Christ is the Messiah, the Chosen One of the Jewish people, and that the Old Testament prophecies are fulfilled in him. As for specific religious practices, it may not totally uncommon for a Messianic Jew to celebrate both Christian and traditional Jewish holidays, as they recognize the connection between both.
This connection can be deepened in your own spiritual life by actively studying the Hebrew Bible. You may even want to learn how to study it in Biblical Hebrew, so as to achieve an understanding in even greater depth. You can also supplement this kind of teaching with Hebrew podcasts. Ultimately, the idea is to develop a more significant relationship with Jesus.
