From: "JJ Parsons" <email@example.com> To: <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Re: Should HaGoyim eat Biblicly Kosher? Rav Eddie, > >A related question. As a believer in Y'shua I do not need to consider >myself one of the goyim, even though I was not born to a Jewish mother, do >I? > Biblically, a "Goyim" or Gentile has a meaning applicable to being a pagan and having no covenant with the G-d of Israel. In today's society, it means that you are not a Jew. As a believer in Yeshua/Jesus as Messiah and a follower of the G-d of Israel, by being a member of the family of G-d you are really a Biblical spiritual Israelite (Romans 2:28-29) because you have been GRAFTED into the Olive Tree by accepting Yeshua / Jesus as Messiah through the covenant that G-d made with Avraham (Galations 3:16, 29). Spiritually, we are not "Goyim / Gentiles". > > As one who accepts Y'shua, I am part of the mishpakah of God, and one >of Avraham's seed. I no longer should identify with the goyim, but rather >with the Lord Yeshua and His people. I have been adopted into the family of >God -- regardless of my fleshly lineage. Am I off target here? > John, you are absolutely correct. > >Sincerely, > >John Parsons >
