    For "MESSIANIC" JEWS - What is your opinion on "the gathering" (or "Rapture" from the Latin "rapio")

    as it is listed in the New Testament (Matthew 24:29-31; 1 Corinthians 15:52-53; 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3) and according to scripture, and when do you believe this will occur in relation to the "Tribulation" events?

    Interesting that you would ask  messianic jews their opinion on latin words rather than the "old testament" and its hebrew words.

    I’m not a MESSIANIC JEW, but everything you referred to is in the NEW TESTMENT, in my opinion on the gathering of Gods people, these are the teaching that Jesus instructed us with so that we are not deceived by the son of destruction. Matthew 24: 29-51, gives you an understanding to keep watch & keep doing his works; therefore he does not come like a thief in the night, and catch you off guard. 1 Corinthians 15:45-58, gives you an understanding of what must take place, in the twinkling of an eye; all things will be made different to be able to enter the kingdom of the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:1-18, to understand what you must be doing so that you may be called up. ; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-17, this is the warming of thing that must accrue before the coming of the lord, would take place so that we might not be deceived, by the son of destruction.

    Keep watch therefore he does not come like a thief in the night when you do not expect him.

    With the answers made so far, maybe I can clarify and elaborate a bit on the original QUESTION...

    I am looking for a "Jewish" perspective on a "Christian" belief based on passages in the New Testament. Since "Messianic Jews" (such as I have spoken with in the past) are believers in Jesus Christ as the "Messiah" and share many other common beliefs as current Christians, I was looking for their insight into the topic mentioned.

    There are also Hebrew versions of the New Testament available (if that is necessary). In the "Rapture" verse above (1 Thessalonians 4:15-17), the English phrase "shall be caught up" is translated from the original Koine Greek verb = "harpazo", which was then translated into the Latin "rapio" or "rapiemur", which is where the English term "Rapture" actually originates from (as the word "Rapture" itself IS NOT listed in the scripture). The other verses referenced are basically just more supporting statements for this same prophetic event.

    *That is just the "history" of the term - in what has since become the "Rapture" belief in the modern Christian church.

    I was questioning if "Messianic Jews" also share this same or similar interpretation or belief about the prophetic "Rapture" phenomena in the New Testament, in regards to the "end times" prophecies, or if they hold another system of belief or understanding for this?

    Thanks again.
