Chosen To Follow is one of the Caspari Center’s most recent publications, published on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the center. The book is a collection of articles relating to the history and theology of Jewish believers in Jesus (Yeshua). What role did they play in the early church and how did they relate to other Jewish groups in antiquity? What does the Messianic movement look like today in terms of identity and theology? How does this movement interact and engage with the church and with the wider Jewish community? What is its role in Israeli society and in reaching the Jewish people and all nations with the good news about Jesus?
Our 15 contributors are well known Christian and Messianic scholars and leaders from around the world. Each article presents a fresh perspective on the ongoing development of the movement of Jewish believers in Jesus, its history, its theology, and its identity. This book is a unique resource for anyone interested in and involved with the Messianic movement, Jewish ministry and the Jewish background of the Christian faith.
