"However, to those of you who are Gentiles I say this: since I myself am an emissary sent to the Gentiles, I make known the importance of my work in the hope that somehow I may provoke some of my own people to jealousy and save some of them! For if their casting Yeshua aside means reconciliation for the world, what will their accepting him mean? It will be life from the dead!" Romans 11:13 - 15

Passover Haggadah
 
For our Passover Seder, we have created our own Messianic Passover Haggadah. The purpose for creating our own Haggadah was that we were not satisfied with the selection of other Haggadahs. Many of them offer wonderful presentations but we felt they were not fully complete. Our challenge was to find a Messianic Passover Haggadah that had what we were looking for. Unfortnately, each one we reviewed was missing something.

Liturgy

Liturgy is one aspect of worship performed to Adonai. Many pieces of traditional liturgy come directly from the Tenach. In reciting back Adonai's Word from our heart is a means by which we are able to worship the creator of all things. In conveying His Word back to Him, we as believers recognize His authority and the authority of the Word that He has provided us to live by. Through Messiah Yeshua, we continue this practice just as He did, quoting scripture and teaching with the authority that was given to Him.

We will continue adding pieces of liturgy in the future. Should you want to purchase a Siddur for your own library, they are availble through the following link: http://www.messianicliturgy.com/
