B’ney Yisrael (Children of Israel)

BFB140224 ARI One StickIn Ephesians 2, the Apostle Paul explains how Gentiles who have believed in faith on Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus Christ) are, by the grace of God, connected with Jews in the Commonwealth of Israel.  Paul expounds further on this theme in Romans 9-11, culminating in his discourse on how non-Jews have been grafted into Israel by the work of Messiah.  One could make the case that this “Commonwealth of Israel” and “grafting in” are the beginning of the fulfillment of Ezekiel’s vision of the Two Sticks, when God reunites the Two Houses of Israel, Judah and Ephraim, into one people with Messiah, the Son of David, as their King.  

Whatever one’s position on the Two Houses question, there should be no confusion on the fact that believers in Yeshua, regardless of their ethnicity and nation of origin, are joined with Israel and therefore have a special relationship both with the Jewish people.  The Messianic and Hebrew Roots movements are manifestations of that understanding.  Major breakthroughs are occurring as more people come to realize two things.  First, that a Jew does not cease to be Jewish when he or she acknowledges that Yeshua of Nazareth is Messiah; and second, that a Christian of Gentile background does not become Jewish simply because he or she desires to follow Yeshua’s example in learning and obeying Torah.

The Barking Fox seeks to promote Jewish-Christian dialogue and cooperation in the hope that our common belief in the Word of God and the God of the Word is greater than the things that have divided us over the centuries.  We have much to overcome, for the things that have divided us are monumental, but they will continue to divide us if we make no effort to communicate and understand one another.
