Jewish

Jesus came to his own (John 1:11); His own were the Jewish people, the people of the Covenant, the descendants of Abraham. Paul who wrote so much of the New Testament was a scholarly Jew at the time of Jesus who was zealous for the Jewish faith and tried to stamp out of the Way, the followers of Jesus who he thought was poisoning the faith, until he had an encounter with the Living God, Jesus. Many Jews believed and were saved in the First Century, but many did not. Even today, Jews are coming to faith in Jesus.

Danny was Jewish from the former Soviet Union. His grandparents were Holocaust Survivors. They came to the US to find better medical care for Danny. He had benign tumors that grew on his larynx that required surgery every three months or so. They cause him to talk in a whisper. He became enthralled with tattoos. He also became an alcoholic and lived a self-destructive lifestyle. That all changed when his best friend had a motorcycle accident. He is an unlikely convert to Christianity. This is his story



Following is one testimony of a Jewish man originally from Kansas who had an encounter with the Living God.



Kim Goldman grew up an educated, secular Jew. She went to Hebrew school and youth group, because that is what she did in her culture, like eating bagels.



He thought the New Testament was the instruction for Christians on how to persecute Jews. He was shocked to find that Jesus was Jewish. Jesus was the Messiah for the Jews. What he found was beautiful. He came to the believe that the most Jewish thing he could do was to accept Jesus, the Jewish Messiah.
