Abstract
This study investigates focused and intentional interaction between Gentile and Messianic Jewish believers on the ability of Gentile Christians to appropriate and apply Hebrew biblical canon. A cohort of Episcopalians and members of a Messianic Jewish synagogue in the Fort Worth-Dallas area who associated in worship and fellowship are examined. The study considers theological issues concerning Jewish identity in the Church and their place in the economy of salvation. The thesis and conclusion are that observable and repeatable improvements in Old Testament comprehension, appreciation and application occur in Gentile Christians as a result of graced interaction with Jewish believers.
