For my part, the Zohar and, for that matter the Kabal,
are simply works made by men in their (our) ever
constant efforts to redefine or "illuminate" the
Hebrew Scriptures. It is really no different than the
Gnostic Gospels, the Christian Scriptures, the
Apocrypha, the Book of Mormon or the Quaran. In other
words, I believe it might make for interesting reading
but is more relevent to learning about the men or man
who authored it than about God.
As for Messianic Judaism or Jews for Jesus or
"Completed Jews", these terms are really just
euphamisms for Christianity. I might bend from that
view a little when one speaks of the Ebionic
Christians that existed in the first, second and third
centuries of the common era. In fact, from an
historical perspective (in other words, as a matter of
academic interest), I would love to establish whether
the church that existed in Jerusalem was Paulist or
Ebionic. I see a whole lot of evidence that suggests
the latter and comparatively little to suggest the
former. If anyone wants to pick up such a thread for
discussion, it would be immensely interesting to me.
