Toward Jerusalem Council II (“TJCII”) is an initiative of repentance and reconciliation between the Jewish and Gentile segments of the Body of Messiah.
How Do We Achieve This?
- Invite and encourage church leaders and Christian scholars to play an active role in the restoration of the Jewish segment of the Body of Messiah.
- Facilitate repentance for the sins of Gentile Christians and the Christian Church against the Jewish people, especially for the suppression of corporate Jewish witness to Jesus, the Messiah.
- Invite and encourage the global Messianic Jewish community to engage in reconciliation and restoration, thereby fostering unity among the different streams and organizations within Messianic Judaism.
TJCII is led by an International Leadership Council (ILC) of fourteen leaders, seven Jewish and seven Gentile leaders, who are broadly representative of the different international movements and churches, historic and modern that confess Jesus as Lord and Savior.
The ILC governs the activity to support the following vision:
Unite Jews and Gentiles for the Return of Jesus
TJCII is working for worldwide reconciliation between leaders of both Christian and Messianic Jewish communities. Healing this first major split is necessary for unity within the Body of Messiah.
Work toward the Second Jerusalem Council
Per scripture, the Jewish apostles of Jesus welcomed Gentiles without requiring that they become Jews. Following the historical exclusion, erasure, and attempted eradication of Jewish followers of Jesus from the Body of Messiah, TJCII is proceeding toward a second Jerusalem Council. This second council is significant because it signifies a turning point where the Gentile church will animate, advocate for, and accept Jewish followers of Jesus with their Jewish identity and practice.
Encourage Unity That Leads to Restoration
The work of TJCII is foundational for both Christian and Messianic Jewish ministries. When Jewish followers of Jesus are grafted back into their own tree, it will be “life from the dead” for all followers of Jesus.
Preparing the Way for Jesus' Return
Restoring Jewish believers to their rightful place in the Body of Messiah prepares the way for Jesus’ return and the fulfillment of His work of redemption.
