Dual Covenant Theology teaches that Jewish People have a separate path to God through the Mosaic and Abrahamic Covenants. This too is false. The doctrine developed after the Holocaust when Christians thought the Jews had suffered enough and needed to be accepted and affirmed. Although well meaning, this is a very dangerous lie.
Hear the important words of Jonathan Bernis on this lie:
As I was growing up, whenever someone tried to share the Gospel with me, my first response was always, “I’m Jewish.” And then I always received an apology. By apologizing for sharing the Gospel with me, what these well-meaning, born-again, evangelical Christians were doing was reinforcing the lie that Jesus is not for the Jews.
Romans 1:16 is clear that the Gospel is not only to the Jew but to the Jew first. Paul cried out in Romans 9:1-4 that he would give up his own salvation for the sake of his brethren, the Jews.
Jesus Himself said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6 TLV).
The declaration in Acts 4:12: “There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved,” makes it clear that salvation is through Yeshua alone, for all— Jew and Gentile alike.
Messianic Judaism, or the use of the term “Jewish Christianity,” is not the lie here. The lie is that Jewish People have a different way apart from faith in Yeshua. Jews who believe in Jesus remain Jews, always and forever, but the Bible presents that there is no other way to reach the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob but through His Anointed Messiah, Yeshua.
