Having listened to a Russian Jewish woman who is a messianic Jew complain about anti-semitism in the Russian Orthodox church I instantly thought of Father Alexander Men, a Russian Orthodox priest who was a Jew. He evangelized and baptized thousands of Jews and Gentiles before his martyrdom shortly before the fall of the Soviet Union. There seems to be an exaggerated sense of victimology among messianic Jews. Are any Christians guilty of prejudice toward Jews? Yes, but to simply focus on a few people like that is a way sects like this build themselves and justify rejecting Orthodox Christianity.
In the risen Lord, Paul Nurmi
How do the Orthodox relate to messianic Jews?
