About First Fruits of Zion

Messianic Judaism represents a great challenge to both Judaism and Christianity, but stands to be a potential turning point in the redemption of the world.

First Fruits of Zion specializes in the study and teaching of Scripture from its historical, linguistic, and cultural context. Using the latest scholarship, ancient Jewish sources, and extra-biblical literature, we present a Messianic Jewish reading of the Bible and early Jewish-Christianity. We do this by publishing books, ebooks, magazines, journals, study programs, audio and audio-visual resources, and presenting new material through seminars, conferences, and guided Israel tours.

The modern Messianic Jewish movement began in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries as Jewish believers in Jesus sought to reconcile their faith in Jesus with their Jewish heritage, and has become a bridge between the Jewish people and the broader church—helping the church to better understand its origin and identity. Abram Poljak, a pioneer of the twentieth-century Messianic Jewish movement, wrote:

“If the Bible is true and if Yeshua is the Messiah and the King of the Jews, then the Messianic Jewish movement is the most important phenomenon of our time—the distinguishing feature indicating that the world has come to a turning point.” - Abram (Bram) Poljak

We are a part of this prophetic movement in which we believe God's Spirit is returning his people to a proper biblical foundation rooted in Torah, Israel, and the Messiah. 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.

We are driven by a heart for the restoration of the body of Messiah.
