Modern Messianic Judaism

When Did The Modern Messianic Jewish Movement Begin?

Though Messianic Judaism as a distinct and identifiable movement of Jewish people who believe that Yeshua is the Messiah of Israel faded away many centuries ago, there has always been individual Jewish Believers in Yeshua. Beginning in the early 1800s increasing numbers of Jewish people began believing in Yeshua. The modern Messianic Jewish movement came to fruition in the late 1960s and 1970s. We believe that this resurgence of Messianic Judaism is a partial fulfillment of the salvation of the Jewish people predicted to occur in the Last Days (see Hosea 3:4-5, Joel 2:28-29, Deuteronomy 30:1-5, Romans 11:25-27).

How Many Messianic Jews Are There?

While there are no concrete figures, it has been estimated by those involved in the movement (and even by those outside the movement) that there are approximately 150,000 Jewish Believers in Messiah Yeshua today. In 1948, when Israel was reestablished as an independent nation, there were fewer than 100 Messianic Jews living in Israel. Today, there are approximately 15,000 Messianic Jewish people in Israel and Messianic congregations throughout the Land! The Messianic Jewish movement is also growing in other countries.
