Historians, scholars, and theologians agree that first-century Christianity was a sect of Judaism, but where does that information place first-century Gentile Christians? What did it mean to be a Gentile who practiced Judaism in the days of the apostles? These are not just academic questions; they are at the heart of today s growing Messianic Jewish movement. How do non-Jews engage in the modern Messianic Jewish revival?
Toby Janicki marshals the latest scholarship on late Second-Temple-Era Judaism and early Christianity to introduce his readers to the first Gentile disciples of Yeshua, a class of people called God-fearers. God-Fearers brings balance and solid answers for non-Jews seeking to practice the Jewish roots of their faith.
