What is a Messianic Jew?

We are one of the most well respected groups out there for Evangelical Christians because we teach them the Jewish roots of their faith – plain and simple.
Messianic Jews (if their parents are Jewish) are ethnic Jews who believe that Jesus was/is the Messiah of Israel based upon the whole view of the Jewish scriptures (Bible). The name of Jesus in Hebrew is “Yeshua”. Jesus also taught from the Hebrew Scriptures. Jesus kept the Feasts. Jesus kept the Sabbath. We know all that.
Jesus was a Jew. His Ancestry was Jewish. His family was Jewish. His upbringing was Jewish. His own life’s practices were thoroughly Jewish, in what He said, in the way He spoke, in what He did, even in the way He dressed.
He WAS/IS the Messiah of Israel and came to fulfill the Jewish Torah. “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.” (Matthew 5:17)
