Established in 1994, the Messianic Studies Institute (MSI) is a unique institute for lifelong learning that empowers you to be transformed by Yeshua (Jesus) Messiah and His teaching, the Jewish heritage and essence of the Scriptures, and the Messianic worldview and way of life. The robust prayer life that one is discipled into when ushered into this rich Jewish heritage and its essence alone provides a profound transformation. MSI's dynamic curriculum unlocks the Biblical languages, Scripture in its continuity from Genesis to Revelation, and the inherently Messianic Jewish perspective important to understanding and knowing the only true God, and the one whom He sent, Yeshua Messiah.

MSI is the educational branch of Beth Messiah Congregation in Columbus, OH (bethmessiah.org)
MSI 'LIVE ONLINE' COURSES

MSI LIVE ONLINE courses meet LIVE via videoconference and are almost always recorded for rewatching or revisiting. All material from each session of these courses will be available online. Please make every effort to be present for the LIVE ONLINE sessions. However, while not ideal, you may also register for this course if you cannot attend the live sessions and engage the videos at your own pace. We encourage you to follow the schedule closely and plan ahead to be with us for these LIVE ONLINE courses so that you may get the most out of lifelong learning with MSI (https://mjsi.org/courses/category/LIVE). After registering for a course, go to 'My Courses' and select your course. Then use the materials in the 'Course Contents'. The course Zoom link for the LIVE ONLINE sessions is there.

MSI 'ANYTIME ONLINE' COURSES

MSI ANYTIME ONLINE courses are pre-recorded and feature videos and a slidedeck (or sometimes a workbook) that you work through at your own pace ANYTIME. Currently, the “Love of God” is our only ANYTIME ONLINE course (https://mjsi.org/p/love); so if you haven’t taken it, please do so as it provides a great foundation. We have more ANYTIME ONLINE courses in production that are coming soon.



How MSI Works

MSI features LIVE ONLINE and ANYTIME ONLINE courses, with the hub being this website where you may access and manage your links, syllabi, course slidedecks or workbooks, videos, handouts, reviews, and more. MSI encourages you to make a commitment to its certificate programs in order to gain the maximum benefit from its rich curriculum, though you may take any course without this commitment. There are no prerequisites for any MSI course except in the sequential Biblical language courses.
