Messianic Kiruv: Question 19
So the Orthodox have a method of Jewish outreach called "kiruv" which involves welcoming non-practicing Jews and inspiring them with Torah and Tradition. The word kiruv is derived from karav which means "to draw near" or "befriend."
I once read something about how we draw near to G-d. It said that the way we draw near to G-d is by getting close to that which G-d loves. Since G-d loves Torah (which is love) then it makes since that we should draw close to Torah in order to draw closer to G-d.
Ephesians 2:13 says "But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ."
What does Paul mean by "brought near" in Ephesians 2:13?
