  • we believe in the first testament, and yes G-d. We believe that there is one, single, almighty G-d in this world.

  • Jews follow the Messianic Law. The Old Testament. Because they do not hold a belief in Jesus the Scriptures that came after his birth (which mainly speak of his life, death and teaching) do not apply to them. That would be like adding a third testament to the bible about Budda... IF the religion holds no belief in them, why include books pertaining to their life, death and teachings? Make sence??

  • Is the Torah written in Hebrew?

  • They believe the Old Testament and the God of Abraham. They do not believe Jesus the Messiah has yet come. That applies to the Orthodox Jewish people. There are also the Messianic Jewish faith which do believe Jesus the Messiah has come and they also practice the feasts as well and read both the OT and NT

  • Yes. Orthodox Jews believe in God (G-d), but they believe in the Old Covenant only; they are still waiting for the promised Messiah. Messianic Jews, on the other hand - discount what Sabrina Bowen said - believe in both the Old and new Covenant; they believe that the Messiah has already come and they are waiting His return. The first church was made up primarily of Jewish believers so it follows that Messianic Jews (Jesus is the Messiah!) would believe in the New Testament Writings given by God and lived in the flesh by His Holy Son, Jesus (aka Yeshua to Messianic Jews). Jews believe in God ... and the Bible.

  • Let it also be pointed out that most Jews (Reform, Orthodox, or Conservative) don't believe that Messianic Jews are practicing Judaism. They are a very small sect, and more controversial to Judaism than Mormons are to Christianity.
