It is important to properly define who you are and, by implication, who you are not. This article is a comparison between two terms Netzer and Messianic. This article attempts to show that Netzer is a biblical word and Messianic is a term made in the 1960’s by David Stern. There is nothing wrong with making up terms, it is just that I do not accept the values for whom that label was intended. The values I have are “Two House, One Covenant; Torah Observant and Yeshua Believing” with a strong passion for the law. This is in direct contrast with Messianic Judaism.
I also have fun with the Hebrew roots of the word Netzer which is made up of the letters Noon Tzadik Reysh. I make an argument that it’s like Mat 4:17-19 where Yeshua says Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
