The Other Natzarim
Not every one who calls themselves Netzarim are true Natsarim. Just as Christianity has its cults, Judaism has it cults too.
Why Can't I See The Rabbi?
For those coming out of Christianity into Judaism are often disappointedly shocked to find that the Rabbi is not as accessible as their Christian pastor was and many unnecessarily take offense to this. They sometimes falsely get the impression that the Rabbi is better than or to good to meet personally with some people. However this is by far not the case. One must understand that the culture and the structure of the chain of command in Eastern Judaism is different than in Western Christianity.
Messianic or Natsari, What is the Difference?
I have been asked this many times over the past few years and I realize it will be asked again many more times and so I have decided to give the short and long answer to this question:
THE SHORT ANSWER:
The vast majority of those who call themselves Messianic Jews are nothing more than Baptist in Jewish garb, they merely keep up and out ward appearance of Judaism yet are more closely aligned with Modern Day Christianity which is far flung from Natsari Judaism. “Messianic” is actually a Gentile designation. They pick and choose which commandments of Torah to follow where as the Natsari trace their roots back to the 1stcentury Jewish believers in Messiah who walked in the footsteps of Messiah Yeshua and kept the whole Torah as well as kept their cultural identity as Jews in tact by keeping many customs and traditions.
