At Synagogue Shuvu La Torah, we are a community of both Jew and Gentile who practice Messianic Judaism and believe that Yeshua (AKA Jesus) is the Messiah of Israel, to the Jew first and also to the Gentile. According to the Torah, we believe that Adonai has called His people Israel into relationship with Him through His Son Yeshua, which means Salvation, and that Yeshua is the One promised by Moshe. In the Torah, Moshe promised that Adonai would raise up a Prophet like himself, the Messiah, from among the Hebrews and that He would put His words in His mouth and He would speak all that He commanded. D’varim (Deuteronomy) 18:15-18 We believe that Yeshua is that Prophet and Messiah who came first to the Jew, and fulfilled the Torah by living His entire life according to His own Torah as an example for us to follow as written in The Brit Chadasha (The New Testament) in Matthew 5:17-19.
Adonai, in understanding that no one could achieve Salvation by keeping Torah, came in the flesh to save us in the person of Yeshua, His own Right Arm. (Psalm 20) During the Feast of Pesach,(Passover) He was nailed to the execution stake and shed His own blood, as a perfect sacrificial lamb for the forgiveness of our sins. (Psalm 22) Death was not able to hold him and on the third day on the Feast of First Fruits, He rose from the dead and was seen by many. He ascended into heaven and promised to send His Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit). During the Feast of Shavuot when the day of Pentecost had fully come, the Ruach HaKodesh put His Spirit in and filled those who believed in the Messiah Yeshua in fulfillment of the Prophets (Ezekiel 36:26,27) where He promised to give them a new heart and put a new spirit within them and would cause them to walk according to His Torah. This gift is available to all Jews who call upon the Name of Adonai.
In fulfillment of His Torah, Adonai also poured out His Spirit upon the Gentiles as well proving that He is Echad, the One true G_d, of Israel and of all Nations. Now in this New Covenant given to us by Messiah, both Jew and Gentile can worship Adonai together as one new man with the Living Torah, Yeshua, living in us and written on our hearts. Ephesians 2:11-19
