What we believe about the One New Man
We believe that in the One New Man, Jewish and Gentile believers in Yeshua come together as part of the final restoration of the things God spoke through the prophets (Acts 3:21)
Breaking Through The Separation
It began with God calling His people Israel to be set apart as ‘a kingdom of priests and a holy nation’ (Exodus 19:6) so that they could be ‘a light for the nations’ (Isaiah 49:6).
God gave the New Covenant to the houses of Israel and Judah (Jeremiah 31:30) to enable them to become holy in Yeshua, their Messiah
(1 Corinthians 1:2).
Through whom they could fulfill their calling and receive the power of the Holy Spirit, to become His witnesses (Acts 1:8).
Gentiles who see the light of the Jewish Messiah Yeshua and receive the New Covenant are grafted into Israel
When Jews and Gentiles unite in a common understanding of this, they become the One New Man.
Please see our Statement of Faith
The One New Man is alluded to in the Tanakh when
– God promised Abram that in Him all the families of the earth would be blessed (Genesis 12:3, Acts 3:25, Galatians 3:8-9)
– Rahab, the Canaanite, was pivotal in Israel’s entry into the Promised Land and entered the genealogy of Yeshua
(Joshua 2:1-24, Matthew 1:5)
– Ruth, the Moabite, joined with Naomi, the Israelite, and also became an ancestor of Yeshua
– Jonah was sent to the city of Ninevah
– God made promises to foreigners who took His name
(Isaiah 44:4 & 56:6-8)
Yeshua pointed to it when He
– spoke to the Samaritan woman about worship which would unite both Jew and Gentile
– spoke about having other sheep who He would lead together into one flock, with one Shepherd (John 10: 16)
– prayed to the Father that those who believed in Him would become one in Him and the Father
Paul spoke of it when he
– pictured Israel as a natural olive tree, into which Gentile believers would be grafted like wild branches (Romans 11:17)
– taught about how Jews and Gentiles could be united as one in the Messiah (Ephesians 2:11-21) and become joint heirs in His promises
Prophecy speaks of it as
– the final coming together of a vast multitude from every nation, people and tongue (Revelation 7:9)
