Another new issue of Messiah Magazine has just rolled off our presses. Messiah Magazine provides a voice for the Israeli and international Messianic Jewish movement in the form of Messianic Jewish teaching about the land, the people, and the Scriptures of Israel.
This periodical is inspired by the promise of what is to come: the kingdom of heaven, when the Torah will go out from Zion and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. Our objective is to help rejuvenate the believer’s faith, encouraging him or her to become zealous for Messiah, discipleship, and the whole Word of God.
