What are the pro’s and con’s of the Hebrew Roots Movement?
Like most Christian movements, there’s people in the Hebrew Roots who start with something good and take it too far.
The good that the Hebrew Roots Movement starts with is a desire to not neglect 2/3rds of their Bibles and understand the full counsel of God’s word. The name Hebrew Roots is a desire to make sure we know what Bible Jesus was reading when He fulfilled every promise in it.
The problem is when they either make the same mistake in the opposite direction and abandon the New Testament entirely, or start treating others and themselves as if they were under the Old Covenant. This not only results in serious misrepresentation of both Covenants made to Israel and the World through Christ, but also makes the mistake the author of Hebrews warned his audience about in settling for a shadow of Christ when we have the substance of everything the Old Testament points us to.
At best, it’s not settling for less when hearing the full counsel of God’s word. At worst, it settles for less than what Jesus provided us in having a right relationship with God through His mercy.
