Christianity & Judaism: Jews as Jesus Was (Messianic Jews)

Christianity & Judaism: Jews as Jesus Was (Messianic Jews)

"Highly Recommended. Jews who believe that Jesus (in Hebrew, Y'shua) is the promised Messiah? Is this some meshuggana cult or what? This program takes a look at the phenomena of Jews living in Israel who really do believe that Jesus is the Messiah. Using the standard format of a narrator giving overall context with depictions of the believers, interviews with theologians/rabbis (both pro and con), and interviews with the believers, this production gives a rather balanced view of these people. They see themselves as the fulfillment of the promises in the Tenach or Old Testament and are obviously sincere in their beliefs. The program also shows some of the persecution they endure which has gone so far as attempts on their lives. Sound and picture quality are good. This can be an emotionally charged issue for many Jews and this is one of the most objective views in any medium that this reviewer has seen." -EMRO Review
This is a unique documentary that reports on Messianic Jews, an organized group of Jewish people who maintain their Jewish identity and worship style, but believe that Yeshua, Jesus of Nazareth, is the promised Messiah. In Israel there are approximately 5000 followers of Messianic Judaism, people with a desire to recreate the community of the Messiah's first disciples. Here we learn their story, as well as the opinions of Jacquot Grunewald, an Orthodox Rabbi, who is skeptical of their beliefs, and of Enzo Bianchi, a Catholic theologian, who is open to the question; each help fine-tune the issues. Produced by TSI, Inc. 2008 JSCA 52 min.
