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.

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.
