More about Gentiles

What is "the measure of faith that God has assigned" (Romans 12:3)? What is the gift of "exhortation"? What are spiritual gifts and how do they function? Romans 12 depicts the body of Messiah in all its diversity, and calls upon us to commit ourselves to the body, offering ourselves as "living sacrifices" to the Almighty.

For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. (Romans 12:4-5)

A hidden psalm lies concealed, interspersed through the text of Amos. When assembled, the psalm reveals clues about the mission and message of the prophet. Find out the hidden relationship between the book of Amos and the festival of Sukkot, and discover how the Apostles used Amos to justify the inclusion of the Gentiles in the kingdom and the Messianic Era.

Paul wants you to understand this mystery: A partial hardening has come upon Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. (Romans 11:25) Let's take some time to see if we can solve the mystery with a teaching from Romans 11 focusing on the meaning of the enigmatic phrase, "the fullness of the Gentiles."

How about a little seasonal teaching to enjoy while sitting in the Sukkah? A short teaching about the signifiance of Sukkot, the meaning of the Sukkah, Gog and Magog, the Talmud's view of Gentiles keeping Sukkot in the kingdom, and the festival's relationship to the all of the other festivals and the coming Kingdom of Heaven.

Toby Janicki demonstrates how the Festival of Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) ultimately points toward the kingdom when all nations will participate in the festival.

Then everyone who survives of all the nations that have come against Jerusalem shall go up year after year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Booths. (Zec 14:16)

 

Historians, scholars, and theologians agree that first-century Christianity was a sect of Judaism, but where does that information place first-century Gentile Christians? What did it mean to be a Gentile who practiced Judaism in the days of the apostles?

These are not just academic questions; they are at the heart of today’s growing Messianic Jewish movement. How do non-Jews engage in the modern Messianic Jewish revival?
