I’m Jewish. I am also a believer in Jesus Christ. I wasn’t raised “Jewish” and my parents were “saved” in their early 30′s and they weren’t raised “Jewish” either. My husband and I have moved to a new state and are looking for a church to attend, and recently attended a Messiaic congregation and I never felt the difference between the two of us more than that afternoon. I never felt more at home there than I ever have at church, although the format was different, and he had never felt more out of his element. That led to a discussion that caused disagreement creating a big question: if the Bible was written by Jews (mostly, maybe not Dr. Luke), and God chose the Jews, and Jesus while on earth was a Jew, is Christianity a Jewish religion? If it is, then why is there so little Jewishness in the church today like meeting on Sunday instead of Saturday? I have my thoughts on those questions, and my husband has his, and I would love to know from more perspectives/angles because as strongly as I feel about my opinion, I would rather discover the truth.
This is my faith hurdle. —Mandy
