Many evangelical Christians now celebrate Jewish holidays
But today's evangelicals and Pentecostals have built upon this long-standing practice in a distinctly modern way: by fusing religious observance, general support for Israel and public denunciations of anti-Semitism and the Holocaust. Christians are not only reviving Jewish holidays and practices in their own faith in recognition of the Jewish roots of Christianity. They also are responding to the seismic events in modern Jewish history, most especially the horrors of anti-Semitism, some of it perpetrated by Christians.

In a way, they are engaging in these practices to atone for past sins. American evangelicals and Pentecostals do not have the same history of denouncing anti-Semitism or grappling with Christian contributions to the Holocaust that other Christians do. Catholics, for instance, have Vatican II's "Nostra Aetate" in 1965, which focused on the church's relationship to Jewish people. ...

...Dr Rachael Kohn completed her doctorate on Messianic Judaism.

She says the religious tradition is somewhat of a "rebranding" of the 19th century Hebrew-Christian movement.

"It consisted of Jewish converts to Christianity, who were never made comfortable in churches due to anti-Semitism and founded their own congregations," she says of the earlier tradition.

But unlike Hebrew-Christianity, Messianic Judaism endorses Jewish rituals....

--"Jews for Jesus and gentiles keeping kosher: What is Messianic Judaism and why do Jewish leaders condemn it? "

It's quite an interesting article about a group that is quite active in Australia - and the United States.
I still agree with RC Sproul Jr on this one❗

I have no problem with Jews for Jesus that's the way it should be!

Another landmark moment for Messianic Jews took place after 11 worshippers were killed at a Pittsburgh synagogue last year. At a political rally in Michigan ahead of the midterm elections, and two days after the gunman declared all Jews should die and opened fire at the Tree of Life Congregation Synagogue – the worst attack on Jews in US history – Vice President Mike Pence invited a rabbi onstage to say a prayer for the victims. That rabbi turned out to be Loren Jacobs, a prominent figure in the Messianic Christian movement and the leader of the Shema Israel congregation. At the event, he invoked “Jesus the Messiah.”

There was a cable TV series a while back called, My Crazy Obsession, or something like that. I had to stop watching it pretty quick, because there are some real disturbing people out there. I thought it would be on the lighter, more humorous side.

There was a guy in his 30's, or so, who spent all of his free-time, scraping up roadkill. He would put them in the bed of his pickup, drive to his little roadkill cemetary out in a field, give them all a little funeral, and bury them. When he wasn't at his day job, this was all he did, driving around searching for roadkill.

Anyway, stop pestering me, hick.

Formerly, when you did not know God, you were enslaved to those that by nature are not gods. But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, how can you turn back again to the weak and worthless elementary principles of the world, whose slaves you want to be once more? You observe days and months and seasons and years! I am afraid I may have labored over you in vain.

Purim is a Jewish festival that celebrates Esther's role in standing up for Jews. Check out the book in your Old Testament and note that God is not mentioned. Maybe for that reason, today's Jews like the book so much, because many of them do not believe in God. I have read surveys that show about one-third do not believe in God, which seems incredible to me since they are 'God's Chosen People' and much of the Bible is about them. Some time ago, something in archaeology was found that proved something in the Old Testament, maybe even something as basic as King David's existence, and many Jews scoffed at the reliability of the evidence.
Now, if Christians think they are going to gain Jewish converts, they should think twice. The roots of Jewish suspicion of Christians go way back, and the Holocaust only deepens them. In fact, you could say that only 2/3 of the Jews believe in God, but 99 percent believe in the Holocaust, which they do annually commemorate, especially if you watch PBS.
Many times, I think the promotion of 'visit the land of the Bible' to evangelical Christians has more to do with salesmanship than with a desire to deepen someone's understanding of the Bible. In fact, shouldn't they visit Turkey and Greece, where many of the churches of the New Testament were?

Biblical warrant or no biblical warrant, me an’ the missus is goin’ to the Yalobusha County Possum Festival this fall. The barbecued possum is out of this world, and if you haven’t tried the possum-n-okry casserole, you just haven’t lived. JAG and BDF, if I can get my usual parking spot, I’ll be in the third goatcart on the left. Y’all stop by for some of my wife’s homemade pickled possum and cornmeal crackers. Them crackers is mighty tasty dunked in scuppernong juice. Makes ‘em easy to chew, too, when yer teef is out.
Country Boy, you come on by, too, and Miss Dolores you and Mr. Dolores (or whatever your husband’s name is), y’all can swing by on your way to Tuscaloosa. Them fiddles, jugs and washboards are tunin’ up, and the cloggers are a-gittin’ ready to cut a rug. Should be a real meller time fer all of us.

While they are amiss,at least,they will have more accuracy in the dates for observing God tabernacling with us and our Passover. Better than being totally off and appearing RC.

I am unaware of this phenomenon. The closest Ive seen are churches hosting Sadr dinners for Passover but to show that Jesus and His atoning sacrifice is interwoven all through it.

If one wants to atone for sins, he need only take them to Jesus and ask forgiveness while turning from them. Some penance ritual isn't going to absolve anything. Only Jesus can fix this.
