The Fig Tree Blossoms: The Emerging of Messianic Judaism by Paul Liberman

Jesus was a Jew. The writers of Scripture were Jews. The early church emerged in a Jewish environment. So why the tension between Jews and Christians, and why have so few Jews come to believe in the Messiah?

In The Fig Tree Blossoms, Paul Liberman uncovers the Jewish roots of the Christian faith and helps Gentile believers come to a deeper understanding of the historic issues that have fed Jewish suspicion of Christians and Christian prejudice toward Jews.

But in these last days, Liberman writes, God is using the emerging Messianic movement to bring many Jews into His kingdom and to awaken Gentile Christians to their Jewish faith heritage. Instead of casting blame or assigning guilt, Liberman calls Gentile Christians to embrace their Messianic brothers' and sisters' Jewish expressions of faith in much the same way Paul encouraged his fellow Jews to embrace Gentile believers who were entering the first century church.

Discover how the "fig tree"—the biblical symbol for the Jewish people—is blossoming, and how many will come to enjoy its fruit.

Paul Liberman became a believer in the Messiah in 1971. He was instrumental in founding Messianic congregations in Washington, D.C., and San Diego and co-led a congregation in Israel. For five years, he served as the Executive Director of the International Messianic Jewish Alliance and is currently Publisher of The Messianic Times newspaper, a board member of MAOZ, Inc. (Israel), and President of the Messianic Jewish Alliance of America.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

The Fig Tree Blossoms is an extremely important book for those who want to understand the Messianic movement and God’s work among the Jewish people in these last days. Jews for Jesus founder Moishe Rosen first commended this book and its author to me. I have since read it and have developed a deep appreciation for the author as well. Now I am so very pleased on behalf of my friend Paul to commend this book to others.” —David Brickner, Executive Director, Jews for Jesus

“Paul Liberman is a Messianic Jewish trailblazer. We are all indebted to him for helping to clear the way for Jewish followers of Messiah Yeshua to serve Him as Jews. As Paul articulates so clearly, Jews who believe in Yeshua don’t form a new denomination of Christianity, but remain within the fig tree of Israel—the Jewish people—and are essential to its blossoming in our day.” — Russ Resnick, Executive Director, Union of Messianic Jewish Congregations

The Fig Tree Blossoms carries the fragrance and originality of a fresh new move of God’s Spirit. Written by a man who has been central to the Messianic movement, Paul Liberman with the skill of the elder statesman that he is, addresses the issues and answers the questions of the day regarding Messianic Judaism.” — Rabbi Jeff Forman, Chairman, International Alliance of Messianic Congregations and Synagogues

The Fig Tree Blossoms, written 35 years ago by Messianic Jewish pioneer, Paul Liberman, remains one of the most important books ever written about the emergence of the modern Messianic Jewish movement. It has served to communicate, in layman’s words, the marvelous prophetic fulfillment of God’s promise to Israel to physically and spiritually restore the Jewish people in ‘latter days.’ Over the years this is one of very few books that I have regularly given to Christians and others to explain Messianic Judaism as a prophetic movement. I am thrilled to see this important work given the opportunity to gain a new and wider audience … for such a time as this.” — Joel Chernoff, General Secretary Messianic Jewish Alliance of America
