Messianic Judaism is Not Christianity: A Loving Call to Unity by Stan Telchin

The apostle Paul wrote that all believers—Jewish and Gentile—are to serve the Lord together as "one new man." But a growing movement today seeks to keep that from happening.

As Stan Telchin explains, proponents of Messianic Judaism are confusing both Jewish and Gentile followers of Jesus and dividing the church. Their insistence on following rabbinic form and their statements that Jewish believers need to be in Messianic synagogues in order to maintain their identities are unbiblical. Telchin discusses the growth of this movement, its unscriptural doctrines, and its ineffectiveness in Jewish evangelism.

Those who have been swept up by the nostalgia and beauty of "Jewishness" or who have been hurt by division in the Body or who love Israel will find their hearts and minds freed by this firm but loving message.

I have been involved in the Messianic movement and an active member of a Messianic congregation for more than 20 years. Sten Telchin's critique of the movement is both true and accurate. This is the book that many leaders of the Messianic movement will not want you to read. I would encourage all Messianic Jews to seriously consider the issues voiced in this important book.

Telchin's latest book, while it makes for a good read, is really divisive in tone as he attacks Messianic Jews and lebels them as 'being involved in things God would not approve of.' The book was for this reader discouraging and since Telchin himself calls himself a Messianic Jew, this reader cannot understand why he attacks other Messianic Jews. The book lacked intellectual substance as Telchin relied on very select historical sources. Telchin expresses his opinion in this book and that is all it is - a personal opinion by the author. I found the book to be historically, theologically and philosophically off base.
