Very Interesting Comments Section on James' Penultimate Blog Post
A bunch of people recently emailed me asking questions about conversion within Messianic Judaism. So then I wondered what prompted all of these questions and did a quick search of the blogosphere. I found that James has quit blogging over a recent post which you can find here:
I think the comments are very interesting and, given the number of questions I've received recently, we should definitely address this in more depth.
I have to go to Washington D.C. but I'll write about this upon my return. But, in the meantime, I'll pose some discussion questions for everyone to begin considering:
The term "Jew" encapsulates possibly all the tribes of Israel--at the very least it encapsulates Levi, Benjamin, and Judah. We know from Ezekiel that non-Jews (at least some of them) will eventually be absorbed into various tribes of Israel in the eschaton. Is it possible that the Apostolic Writers did not see intermarriage between Believing Jews and Believing non-Jews to be a problem--anymore than they considered intermarriage between Benjamites and Judahites to be a problem?
I'm only asking...
