Identity rooted in history

This exciting summary is given by David Rudolph and Elliot Klayman:

One of the strengths of the Messianic Jewish option is that it offers an identity rooted in history. Messianic Judiasm challenges the notion that Judaism and Crhistianity are mutually exclusive religions and contends that Christianity was originally a form of Judaism. The Messianic synagogue fits together pieces from both religious traditions in an attempt to restore an ancient communal identity. (Chapter 2, page 47)

Would you consider this to be one of Messianic Judaism's strengths or is it not something you have thought about before? Are you comfortable with the idea that Messianic communities piece together traditions? How is that reflected in your own congregation and what do you think you could do to make this restoration more complete and genuine?
