The 2018 Visiting Scholar Symposium is an onground only event held at the Messianic Studies Institute (4950 Morse Road, Columbus, Ohio 43230) starting Friday, May 4th at 7:00 pm and ending Sunday, May 6th at 2:00 pm.
What does 1 Cor 7:17–24 say about the differences between Jewish and Gentile callings in Messiah? I thought we were 'one new man'? Does my ethnicity mean anything any longer in Messiah? Well, let's just say that forgetting Paul's rule created a mess in Messianic Jewish and Gentile identity. Yet it was God's goal for every tribe, tongue, people, and ethnicity to rejoice with His people Israel. Come and learn how to walk in your 'Messy-anic' identity in light of a deeper understanding of Scripture. You'll not want to miss this rare opportunity to study at the feet of the sages May 4–6 at MSI, YOUR Center for Lifelong Learning!
