Harmony Main Page
What is here and why ...
There are a number of articles, video clips, sound files and other resources listed in the menu at the left. All of these resources are geared to correcting an age old misconception ... an assumption of separation ... for two groups of believers who are actually part of the same body ... and the realization of this unity is harmony.
One in Messiah: Video in QuickTime
The goal of the Harmony is ...
... to get us all to see something that should be so plainly obvious ... but is NOT recognized as obvious ... not even throughout a long stretch of history.
This oversight is now changing ... read here to see why ... yes it may seem a bit unusual ... but explore WHY this is important to you!
The key to this window is seeing another side to a truth we understand from everyday life. This reveals the rest of the view on what life is.
Here is an interesting perspective: Judaism and Christianity appear to point to the same God, the God of Israel, as the sole focus. Any other story must compare to this, by fact, history, and clear logic, or be entirely discounted.
The history going back to Abraham, through Moses, and to the giving of the Law (Torah) leads to a singular monotheistic tradition. Ask yourself: If Judaism and the Hebrew biblical text predates any other storyline regarding Abraham, then how might a later version supercede the original? Only one historical description can be true. The Hebrew Bible is longstanding evidence as a witness to who Abraham was and how the House of Israel leads us to a central focus on a singular, relevant monotheism.
The Key Point to the harmony flows from:
Follow the Hebrew into the Greek texts and the storyline continues in a harmonious network of information. Unlike any other writings, those from the House of Israel speak to what the future holds in a way that is tied to current events. Israel itself is in the historical cross hairs of the central story for what comes next.
A biblical timeline is set within the window's view and you can explore the logic of this perspective. A solid chronology of biblical events, past, current, and future can be gleaned by a study of the Footsteps of the Messiah. This chronology is specifically outlined in the last portion of the WindowView TimeLine.
The Harmony area of the WindowView illustrates that when the Jewish Messiah arrived, an apparent second tradition was initiated. But in fact there was only a continuation of the previous story initiated with Abraham and Moses.
If You are Jewish: Messianic Evidence
in the Tanach [read more ... future link]
Christians today have picked up on this story line by focusing on the Messiah. But the Messiah is of the House of Israel and thus Jewish! And the story from Abraham, through Moses, through Yeshua and his disciples have given us a unity of Judaism with what must be called Messianic Judaism.
Gentiles have joined this tradition, as co-heirs to God's promises, in what is commonly called Christianity, but this like the Judaism of old, really flows into the larger context of one single monotheistic focus. Jew and Gentile together makes the harmony a living reality.
If You are Gentile: Seeing Jewish Roots
Through Messiah [read more ... future link]
Today, there is only one monotheism in the world. One God, one theism that stands on its own.
The Bible tells us that a veil has been placed before the eyes of the House of Israel. In time, that veil would drop and Israel will come to know its Messiah in no uncertain terms. That time has arrived. Today, the world's landscape is dotted by an increasing number of Jew and Gentile congregations—Messianic congregations.
The existence of these gatherings of believers in Messiah is not only a significant historical event, this signifies the veil dropping in a time when we are reaching the end of a biblical era—and Messiah is soon to come again.
The storyline told in the harmony area blends in with the Timeline presented elsewhere in the Window.
For now, take some time to read articles and get the sense of the unity of what has often been thought of as separate traditions. Once seen in unity, then you will see the true Harmony in the Window!

Here is a bit more to think about in relation to the harmony, traditions, culture, and a historical perspective:
Are you Jewish? Do you read the Tanach? Have you read the Scripture verses that identify, clearly, the Messiah? So clear in fact, you'd recognize what his name is!
What IS changing? A veil now drops, Jewish persons who finally get to reading Scripture and going to the right portions of the Bible ... find Messiah. Today, historically this is like never before. Thousands of Messianic congregations dot the earth like never before. This is historically significant!
When the identity is clearly founded on information ... a Jewish person finds what is theirs! And if they read further about Israel's role in the world (Isaiah speaks of Israel as a light to the Gentiles (Isa 49:6)), then clearly Israel is meant to share the God of Israel with everyone else on the planet.
But is that happening? Not yet, but the biblical chronology leads to that role in a specific way. Within the harmony, Jewish people are part of a biblical timeline scenario with next steps yet to come. The Jewish Messiah is a key that unlocks the storyline leading to the future—this is an important perspective within the window's larger view.
Are you a Gentile? Do you read the Scriptures? Do you know of the extensive logic and information put there for your consideration?
Seeing the Harmony in a Israel-centric context, seeing Messiah's identity embraced by the Jewish peoples, isn't this simply obvious to everyone? In reality centuries have slipped by and this basic point has been missed or denied. The Scriptures declare it, but the peoples have been oblivious or in rejection. Why?
Answer: History, conflict, suffering, misunderstanding and all of it is a distraction from truth. The information is just sitting there, but history has gotten in the way. But dispersion, pogroms, holocaust ... all this is separate from what Scripture has testified all through time!
The Harmony here brings together evidence for who the Messiah is, for the Jew to consider, and to illustrate God's intent for Jew and Gentile, together. Together = Harmony. But the world is full of change, strife, conflict, and noise!
How does one put all this together? What makes sense?
Changes in our world now have us facing big questions on survival and our material existence; so: What now? Scientific evidence for design—in life, in the specified information in the genetic code, in cellular molecular machines—says an intelligence made us. Yet science can only indicate design. The designer's identity must be found elsewhere. And the harmony reveals its clues ... points to a creative intelligence ... will you look?
The evidence from every corner of the larger window pulls the Jewish roots in line with ALL the Scriptures. The evidence for Jews celebrating Messiah is there, even when they are unaware of what this is! They celebrate Messiah each Passover! Did you know that? There is an element of mystery, surprises, in all of this. And what seems like opposite traditions actually align—one with the other. It takes a bit of looking, but the evidence is right here in front of us!
