Jews who accept Jesus Christ (Yeshua) as the Messiah are members of the Messianic Judaism movement.
Many Messianic Jews refer to themselves as “completed Jews,” since they believe that their faith in the God of Israel has been “completed” or fulfilled in Yeshua.Messianic synagogues have also become very popular, and recent estimates number more than 200 congregations in the U. There are also many Messianic congregations in Israel and around the world. Messianic Jews continue to celebrate the Jewish festivals and feast days as prescribed in the Hebrew Scriptures (i.e., Feast of Weeks, Feast of Tabernacles, etc.), but their observances are meant to demonstrate how Yeshua has already fulfilled these Holy Days. Messianic Jews are estimated to number 1 million worldwide, with more than 200,000 in the United States.Some Messianic Jews argue that Jesus' apostles were the first Jews to accept him as Messiah.
