Great story from magazine Israel Today:

Israel’s largest daily newspaper, Yediot Ahronot, ran a feature story on Messianic Jews in Israel in its weekly magazine insert last week.

As with most other media coverage of Messianic Israelis of late, the article was generally positive.

…While it did not say so outright, the article strongly suggested that Messianic Jews are in fact Jews. It noted that Messianics in Israel are indistinguishable from other Israeli Jews, besides the fact that they believe they know who the Messiah is. This shift in mindset is a pretty major victory for Israeli Messianics, after decades of the Orthodox-influenced establishment telling them they are no longer Jews because of their faith.

One more day in Cardiff. I fly out early Wednesday morning and make it to El Paso in time for the late news.
