Excerpt from Messianic World Wide

A Messianic Perspective
"There is nothing new under the sun" – Ecclesiastes 1:9.

Biblical Interpretation – God’s Word is consistent and harmonious

Our perspective of the Bible determines how we interpret the Bible. A translator’s perspective determines how he translates, and thus steers a reader’s interpretation.

We submit a perspective of one unified Book of Instruction – Genesis to Revelation, from our Eternal Holy Creator. Its message is messianic from creation to the New Earth. The Torah (Pentateuch) is the foundational Word of God. The Prophets build upon the Torah with examples, applications, and clarifications. The Psalms exalt the Torah as glorious and beloved. Finally, the Apostles give further application and clarification, especially showing Yeshua to be the promised Messiah. With this perspective, we find all Scripture to be harmonious, without one portion superseding another. We further find God to be unchanging, all people to be judged equitably by their creator, salvation in all ages to be always by grace through faith that produces fruit, and one continuum of the church and its ordinances from Torah.
