Good luck with getting a fundamentalist minister to budge from his mountain of dogmas and doctrines. What most of these guys call open-minded conversation about the scriptures, the nature and office of messiah, and such actually amounts to a forum for them to practice their apologetics. I've yet to hear of a genuine "true believer" walking away from his or her brand of faith and embracing anything remotely close to the original beliefs and practices of James the Just and the original apostles (minus Saul of Tarsus aka "St. Paul"). To their way of thinking this would be an abandonment of the "true faith" they embraced originally and thus a form of treason against Jesus and God.
On my end: I spent this past weekend studying the life of the only non-Jew to be declared a messiah in the Hebrew Scriptures, namely Cyrus the Great of Persia. About 100 years after this fascinating leader cashed in his chips a historian named Xenophon wrote a book about his deeds, his virtues and the ethical precepts that made him a phenomenal leader and moral example. This book was edited by Larry Hendrick and is sold on Amazon bearing the title "Cyrus the Great -- The Arts of Leadership & War". What is intriguing to me is that in the scriptures HaShem anointed Cyrus -- who would later liberate the Jews from their Babylonian captivity -- and "made all his ways straight". In-a-word God wrote the Torah into the life and work & deeds of Cyrus and it shows big time IMO. So much so it makes a lie of Lord Acton's truism about "absolute power corrupting absolutely". In Cyrus's case it emphatically did not. Secularists will say there had to be an exception -- upbringing & natural odds which surely figured in this -- but I lean to the Biblical spin that states the Almighty intervened and got & kept Cyrus on the right course.
For God fearers, I think having Cyrus as an example to emulate is (ahem) gggggreat -- a Gentile messiah is surely an encouragement and an admonition to all non-Jews especially Noahide God fearers.
