Tex: this is in my most recent copy of Messiah Journal. It is an email FFOZ got at their Jerusalem center for study called Bram Center.
Shalom! My name is ___ I'm 25 years old, living in ____. I'm a Jew. Religiously and not just "culturally," I'm a Jew, reverent of our traditions, way of life and way of thinking. That's not something I wish to change. My interest in the man they call Jesus has been steadily growing for several months now. My reading of the so-called New Testament has thus far left me convinced that his teachings are not only good but also compatible with Judaism, i.e. one can follow him and remain religiously Jewish, say, by adhering to HaRamban's thirteen articles of faith and fully accepting Israel's election and HaShem's binding covenant with them. The trouble is that few people seem to seriously share that conviction.
I surmised that you wouldn't be hostile to Judaism and definitely less likely to think that thousands of years of tradition and an interpretative framework were simply rendered obsolete with the coming to the world of the Apostolic Writings. To put it rather bluntly, you certainly believe in Yeshua.
Your connections are surely better than mine, which are nonexistent. O was wondering if you could maybe spread the word that I'm looking for someone, and observant Jew, and someone who shares the conviction of Yeshua to be a study partner to study these matters with?
FFOZ had the perfect person to pair him up with.
