How does the Messianic form of religious faith differ from mainstream Christian belief? In a true sense, it is a return to a "whole Bible" basis for belief and worship. The New Testament, comprised of just 27 books, was never to be considered as a "replacement" for the Tenach, or Old Testament, nor are the New Testament writings the sole basis of our faith. The New Testament apostles refer to the Old Testament hundreds of times in explaining the basis of belief and doctrine. Nor has the Old Covenant been completely "abolished" in the New Covenant. It is instructive that the word "New" in Biblical Greek means a refreshed, revised, or "better" covenant. (Heb. 7:19, 22; 8:6; 12:24) Just as a butterfly does not represent an abolishing of his former self (the caterpiller), but a transformation, so too the New Covenant represents a transformed and improved form of the Old, firmly based and built upon the same original Biblical principles. (Heb. 7:12) We have more Messianic teaching available...
What is the Messianic view on Biblical Torah (Old Testament law)? We uphold New Testament teaching and "establish the law" (Rom. 3:31), believing that "not one jot or tittle" is removed for the believer (Matt. 5:17-19). However, under the New Covenant there is a transformation of law (Heb. 7:12). Yah's commands represent principles and precepts for us under the New Covenant, which has been called a "preceptive" view of Torah. Read more about God's
law and the New Covenant...
Our Messianic Leadership
A special Audio Greeting and Welcome to our new Visitors
from Pastor Obadiah and the entire Bet Yeshurun Congregation.
Bet Yeshurun Messianic Assembly is led by Pastor Obadiah, an able teacher and expositor
of the Word, who has been in active leadership here since 2002. We know that you will
be blessed by his teaching! He is joined by other able expositors of the Word to increase
your understanding of the Word of Life.
A selection of audio sermons is posted on the teaching section of this website to give you an idea of the wonderful learning that we share at every Sabbath service. We invite you to join us!
We emphasize the teaching of the Word of Yah from both Testaments, in
a lively and interesting way!
will also enjoy our lively, inter-active form of teaching, which allows others to
read aloud the Scriptures and share their thoughts, questions, and wisdom with one
another. True worship is not a show put on by a minister, but a body of believers
who grow and interact with one another. We invite you to join us in that walk of faith
and practice by attending our worship services this week!
