A Messianic educational ministry
Modern day Messianic Judaism emphasizes retaining our Jewishness for those of us Jews who believe in Christ as our Messiah. How is that the Apostle Paul tells us to do the exact opposite if we are to embrace the righteousness of our Messiah (Philippians 3:1-9)?
Paul does not say in Philippians 3 that he cast aside his Jewish heritage. Paul instead says that all of his human achievements were meaningless in view of the Messiah. If Paul’s human achievements via Judaism were meaningless, then any of the human achievements of the widely Roman Philippians were less-than-meaningless.
