What are Yeshua's ethics?
Russ Resnik shares something profound in his article on Messianic Jewish Ethics:
Yeshua's revalatory ethics give rise to two corollories for Messianic Jewish ethics: First, the entail Jewish loyalty. Just as Yeshua lived his ethics among, and as part of, the Jewish people, so should his Jewish followers. Second, this Jewish loyalty should lead Messianic Jews to embrace their marginalization within the wider Jewish community as a unique opportunity for testimony and service. (Chapter 6, page 83)
Do you find this challenging, uncomfortable or inspiring? Do you agree or disagree with it?
How have you done so far in exploring what Jewish loyalty and embracing marginalization might mean for you as an individual and as part of a Messianic Jewish community?
