My name is Mike Miller.
I’ll admit it: I’m no theologian, no Rashi, no Jewish Carpenter. I’m just a guy who’s been doing this messianic thing for 12 years and has seen a lot go by.
What I do on this site is share thoughts I have about messianic issues, Jewish issues, Christian issues. I might break some news now and then, or just pass on news I’ve come across.
I love this life. It’s not easy. It involves a lot of hard decisions, a lot of rejection, a lot of patience, a lot of forgiveness and a LOT of humility. But it’s in the footsteps of my Lord and Master, Yeshua of Nazareth, so I do the best I can with what I’ve got.
I converted to Judaism in 1986, became a believer in Messiah in 1991. After several years of living a life that denied my Jewish background, I returned to observing Shabbat, keeping the dietary laws, keeping the annual feasts, and other markers of Torah observance in 2000. My wife, Annette, and I attend a local messianic congregation with our three youngest children.
I was a newspaperman for nearly 30 years, taking a buyout from the Peoria Journal Star in 2008, just more than a month before my 30th anniversary of employment there. During those 30 years, I was a general assignment reporter, copy editor, page designer, wire editor, and, for my final 16 years there, religion reporter and editor.
