5. Don't know about that specific group, but...
Messianic Jews are Jews who believe in Jesus as the Messiah. (I think Jews for Jesus may be mostly Zionist, though.)

MJs retain their Jewish identity and culture and worship in synagogues. They do not refer to themselves as Christians because the earliest believers were also Jews who never called themselves that.

(Originally, "Christian" was a derogatory term used by Romans- aka the white man!! The term was originally adopted as identification between members of an oppressed minority, just as the N-word is sometimes used among Black Americans.)
