Why MJTI #2

This is the second installment of a five-part series. For the first article, click here.

Reason #2: MJTI is the only independent Messianic Jewish graduate school. 

Why is this such a blessing to our students?

Because a measure of independence can open up hearts and minds to new ways of thinking about big issues. This is important because Messianic Judaism is a very new reality. Yes, its roots are ancient—First Century, to be exact. But the opportunity to receive a graduate-level education unimpeded by too much ideological undertow is so very fresh and exciting.

I am grateful of the four schools of higher learning I’ve attended—two Jewish and two Christian. But a uniquely integrated Messianic Jewish program like MJTI offers students the opportunity to ask questions that—at best—are at the periphery of traditional Jewish or Christian institutional thinking. I only wish the Messianic Jewish Theological Institute had been an option for me in my younger days!

If you are a Messianic Jew seeking credentials as a rabbi or better-informed faith as a layperson, if you are a Jew curious about what Messianic Judaism is all about, or if you are a Christian interested in deepening your spiritual journey… consider MJTI.
