The modern Messianic Jewish movement began in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries as Jewish believers in Jeshua / Jesus sought to reconcile their faith in Jesus with their Jewish heritage, and has become a bridge between the Jewish people and the broader church — helping the church to better understand its origin and identity. Abram Poljak, a pioneer of the twentieth-century Messianic Jewish movement, wrote:
“If the Bible is true and if Yeshua is the Messiah and the King of the Jews, then the Messianic Jewish movement is the most important phenomenon of our time—the distinguishing feature indicating that the world has come to a turning point.” – Abram (Bram) Poljak
The Messianic Jewish movement is a part of this prophetic movement in which they believe God’s Spirit is returning His people to a proper biblical foundation rooted in Torah, Israel, and the Messiah. Their objective is to help rejuvenate the believer’s faith, encouraging him or her to become zealous for Messiah, discipleship, and the whole Word of God.
