The text for this session:

(Q): Is Zion Messianic Fellowship affiliated with anyone?

 

(A): No, it was meant to be purely an independent, localized testimony to Messiah. We hadn’t got as far as incorporating with anybody else, and we were at that point anyway, organization shy – afraid of falling into the trap of being in the hands of the wrong persons who would organize us according to their own agenda.

 

(Q): The word ‘Messianic’ could you define what it means please?

 

‘Messianic’ is really the Jewish equivalent for ‘Christian.’ And both mean pertaining to the Messiah, who we believe to be Jesus of Nazareth. We chose the word ‘Messianic’ because it has less negative connotation than ‘Christian.’ To many of our people, the term ‘Christian’ is reminiscent of hatred, of persecution, and of discrimination.
