There is No Such Thing As A ‘Messianic Jew’

For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity. – Ephesians 2:14-16

There is simply no such thing as a “Messianic Jew”. There is no argument for it without being absolutely contrary to Scripture.

The Bible makes it plain that the only identity of anyone who is in Christ is that of  being a Christian, a member of the one new man, as opposed to a special identity of ‘Messianic Jew’, as if such a label is that of a special, privileged people.

To label oneself as such is the height of absurdity. Indeed, it smacks of pride as one who has a special status, or, at the very least, seeks one.

In short, all who are in Christ are one body, one man, just one, not two. Praise God for His election of those whom He chose to save before the foundation of the world! One day, we will sing His praises together, in unity and joy, together, forever!
