Welcome to our Anti-Missionary Arguments information page.
Recently there has been an increasing, enthusiastic, genuine, and positive response from Jewish people, like myself, to the message that Yeshua (Jesus) is our long awaited and hoped for, Messiah. This response, unprecedented in modern times, has generated opposition from Jewish religious authorities. One type of opposition has been the formation of anti-missionary organizations. These organizations teach that Yeshua is not the Messiah and that the New Testament is a flawed, unreliable, propaganda device designed to lure unsuspecting Jews into Christianity.
At HaDavar Messianic Ministries, we demonstrate that it is the anti-missionary arguments that are, in reality, flawed. At the same time, we confirm three things: the truth and accuracy of Messianic prophecy; the Brit Chadashah (New Testament); and the fact that Yeshua is the Jewish Messiah, the light to the Gentiles. We accomplish this task by showing the truth in God’s Word and by showing why the anti-missionary arguments are flawed.
A note of caution: In my experience, anti-missionaries tend to avoid dealing with the issues. Instead, they tend to use other strategies aimed at discouraging consideration of the Messiahship of Yeshua. These tactics, unfortunately, include scorn, shame, and social ostracism. Please do not let intimidation tactics like these dissuade you from considering the issues. Here are the issues. Is the Hebrew Bible true and trustworthy? Does Yeshua fulfill the Messianic picture presented in the Hebrew Bible? At HaDavar Messianic Ministries, we are convinced that the answer to both issues is a resounding “YES!” We leave agreement with that assessment in your hands. Please examine the arguments and decide for yourself.
It is our hope that these replies will convince and persuade all who are genuinely seeking truth that Yeshua is the Messiah of Israel and the Savior of the world. We expect that these replies will confirm, equip, strengthen, and empower those who already personally trust Yeshua as their Messiah and Savior.
