How To Share Christ With Jews

I am from a Jewish background brought up in a Jewish conservative home. Since 1989 I have been a believer in Jesus as Lord and Savior, the Jewish Messiah. How does one share the gospel of Jesus Christ to a Jewish person?

Yeshuah ha Meshiach is the Jewish Redeemer as prophesied. You could share with them that Yeshuah is the suffering servant as shown in Isaiah 53+ John 1:9-13. And then you can use the regular witnessing scriptures that I use, about Adam and Jesus in Romans 5:12-14,19. And the Roman Road and Sinner's Prayer in John 3:3+ 6:37+ Romans 10:9-13+ Psalm 32:3-5+ 51. And God's Love in John 3:16,36.

GREAT STATEMENT!!! RIGHT ON!!!
---JOhn on 11/10/10

John...you either kneel at their feet....or are a joo.
Come out and play show your full or 1/2 knowledge make this a "great statement" if a joo. Joo's have not been blessed for 2000 years except by Christian protection and charity, thriving in Christian country's...only. Your scriptural ignorance is tolerated because of equal denom/doc ignorance an family tolerance.

Thank You Jesus for bringing me into the ministry. Best thing that has ever happen to me...JESUS CHRIST. He knows something that you don't! How's that?

Ron

Just share, but remember if you shout Jesus is the Christ loud enough to be heard by an unsaved Jew,and they either respond yay or nay. look around because ten gentiles will have heard and responded to Christ recieving HIM as savior something that many of us have noticed witnessing.

//the half knowledgeable Jew will rip apart the "most knowledgeable" christian.//

..the most knowledgeable disciples of Jesus Christ are not considered that by the "most knowledgeable Christian".

the "most knowledgeable 'Christian'" will not even get close to a good discussion with a Jew ...---aka on 10/14/10

Well, a knowledgable Christian doesn't care what unknowledgable Christians think about them. They have truths....supported by prophets and apostles.
Every Judean/Anti-Christian that has visited these blogs has run off with their tail between their legs when faced with Israels witnesses. They either are not Judean to begin with or they are less than your 1/2 knowledgable.

Trav, thanks for making my point. If this was a nation truly "under God", the definitions would not have morphed into what is really now a socialistic oligarchy.
---aka on 10/14/10

Democracy is the road to socialism.
Karl Marx

Well,some of this nation is still under GOD, just not the Democratic part. Democratic thinking reminds me of Catholic thinking. Universal. Make everyone equal,take from the worker and give to the non worker...make them equal as long as it doesn't cost them personally.

//when witnessing to a Jew, you might want to know a little about Jewish people.//

Approximately, 75% of of Jewish descent are secularist,atheistic, or agnostic.

//the half knowledgeable Jew will rip apart the "most knowledgeable" christian.//

the reason I put the most knowledgeable in quotes is because the most knowledgeable disciples of Jesus Christ are not considered that by the "most knowledgeable Christian".

the "most knowledgeable 'Christian'" will not even get close to a good discussion with a Jew if they do not know who they are opposing.

republic-a government in which supreme power resides in a body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by elected officers and representatives responsible to them and governing according to law.

"...and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." Abraham Lincoln in the Gettysburg Address.

democracy - government by the people, a form of government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system.

Trav, thanks for making my point. If this was a nation truly "under God", the definitions would not have morphed into what is really now a socialistic oligarchy.
---aka on 10/14/10


question: how can we be a nation "under God" when we call ourselves a democracy?
---aka on 10/12/10 ...the half knowledgeable Jew will rip apart the "most knowledgeable" christian.
---aka on 10/11/10

Two statements that are misconceptions. We are not a "democracy". Which is socialistic. We are a Republic.....say the Pledge of Allegiance and you'll remember what they tried to teach out of us.

Second....Judeans for two thousand years even the most expert....have not seen or heard what the Lord said to Israel. I accept your knowledgable christian challenge using only my left hand, with one eye closed. One ear plugged.....tape the legs if you like. Bring the joos 5 at a time.

cluny,

i apologize for my sarcastic comments about the church forefathers. i ask your forgiveness.

aka.joseph
---aka on 10/13/10


stick to the real point, will you? my point really wasn't about the early church fathers. but, really, how can anyone make you understand?

this is not the first time, and by your next snarky comment, you will show, it is not the last.

now, that the early church father comment is out of the way, please address the fact that you can make comments about word/concepts that cannot be found in the bible and others cannot.

\\//Christmation/Confirmation...Initiation//

It is ironic that some people can share words/concepts that are not in the KJV NT, but 'share' is challenged, which is a concept that does not need written about by 5th century dead dudes to extract from the bible.

Those whom you casually dismiss as "5th century dead dudes" are they very ones who kept the Bible alive for the likes of 21st century dudes like you to quote out of context and totally miss the point of..

Where does the Bible use the formula "share Christ" or "share the Gospel"?

Very rare indeed.

To share Yeshua the Messiah with other Jews, start with the book of Matthew. Matthew was a Jew writting to Jews, so he uses alot of Prophecies about Yeshua from the O.T. to show that He truly is the Messiah who fulfilled ALL the Prophecies and Laws. Use the word "Elohim" to speak the name of God - in Hebrew it is plural refering to Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Also use the words that were written on the plaque on the cross "Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews" - in Hebrew (look it up) it is YHVH or Yahova (God). Hope this helps. Shalom my brother.
---Leslie on 10/11/10


Acts 26:22 I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come:

Acts 28:23 to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Jesus, both out of the law of Moses, and out of the prophets, from morning till evening

You have to show from Moses and the prophets that Jesus is the messaih

Acts 17:2 And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures,
Acts 17:3 Opening and alleging, that Christ must needs have suffered, and risen again from the dead, and that this Jesus, whom I preach unto you, is Christ.
---francis on 10/11/10


Have a extensive study on the Book of Hebrews. It shows the supremacy of Christ to all the Jews ceremonial laws, the prophets, the Levi priesthood, and other Jewish religious practices. Then if you have the chance to present Christ to a Jew who is willing to listen you have a starting point. Be sure you understand the Jewish systems also.
---Harold on 10/11/10


Ronald,
one way to introduce the Jewish people to their Messiah is by following the following pattern.
1. Discuss with them how they are incomplete as long as they(the Jewish people) are without their Messiah.
2. Now ask them, do they feel incomplete?
Most will say yes, and when they do ask them if they are willing to ask G-D to show them if this "Christian Jesus" is first of all the Jewish Messiah?
This simple request, depending totally up on the convicting power of the Holy Spirit many times reaches in to Jewish hearts.

Ronald,

Avoid the other extreme also. As Mark_Eaton pointed out, there are several 'types' of Jewish families. So, by conservative, do you mean secular or religious?

If religious, then you know that Judaism and Christianity is not compatible. The Jews are still waiting for their Mesiach, who was/is to be a political leader. that is why they rejected Christ, who talked of a heavenly kingdom.

The world is full of Judeo-Christian churches that have very mixed doctrines.

Jesus said the hardest place to share the truth is on the home turf. Honestly, something worked with you. Why not go with that?
---aka on 10/10/10


Luke 16:31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

To convince a Jew that Jesus is the Christ/ messiah, you would have to do it from Moses and The prophets:


Acts 26:22 Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come:

Acts 28:23 to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Jesus, both out of the law of Moses, and [out of] the prophets, from morning till evening.
---francis on 10/11/10


Judaism and Christianity are the same religion Earl!

The first book the bible was NOT Matthew!

So as I warned Ron in my last post who (and why) to avoid.
---JOHn on 10/10/10


Judism and christianity are incompatible .
John's gospel is full of the reasons why the Jews rejected his gospel.Jesus's identity was challenged by Jewish traditional religious beliefs throughout the book.It is apparent when read .
Each of the two religions has their own list of expectations for the messiah to meet that will support or reject Jesus's authenticity.
From the list of expectations of a messiah in traditional judism Jesus did NOT meet those expectations therefore his gospel remains unauthentic by jewish standards.
Both religions are very scripture selective to prove their beliefs for and against Jesus as a messiah.

In my experience I have met three "typical" Jews. Please remember, the thing they ALL think is Jesus is the God of the Gentiles and they have been persecuted for centuries about Him.

The first type is the total abstainer from Judaism and knows less about God than you do. Introduce them to Yeshua, or Jewish Messiah that came 2000 years ago. Matthew is a great place to start with geneaology of Jesus.

Second type knows about Judaism and Jesus and the NT but does not believe Jesus is Messiah. Show them Yeshua in Isaiah 53, and connect the OT passage to fulfilled NT Scriptures.

The third is Orthodox Judaism, very difficult. I chip away at them, usually with atonement. How do they get their sins forgiven without blood?
---Mark_Eaton on 10/10/10


The evidence for Jesus as messiah is overwhelming from the Torah. A book by Peter Stoner illustrates the improbability of anything else being so by showing that the mathematical chances of fulfilling just 8 messianic Prophecies in the life of one man is a quadrillion to 1. (1,000,000,000,000,000 to 1)

He compares it to filling the entire state of Texas knee high with silver dollars, painting one red dropping it in the middle and mixing them all up while sending a blindfolded man to pick up that exact coin on the first attempt.

Isaiah 9:6 says "he shall be called...mighty God." to this day no one else fulfills that prophecy, and many others we could list.
---Peter on 10/10/10


You could illustrate that Jesus knew the Old Testament scriptures and yet among a fiercely monotheistic people when and "made himself equal with God," knowing what the punishment was, knowing also that a mere man making such a claim would be blasphemy...and yet he even gave a new way to be saved. Jews were heirs to salvation through the promise of Abraham and yet the Lord took them away from their covenant to declare HIMSELF their salvation (visible in John 3) when he recalls the serpent being lifted up and declares the same unconditional salvation is in him.

That's diabolically deceptive or insane if he indeed was. Josh McDowell makes this argument in chapter 2 of more then a carpenter. You should check it out.
---Peter on 10/10/10


Ronald,
By ALL means keep them away from any so called Christian Churches. Especially the evangelicals/baptist crowds. The "Save by grace by a 1 minute prayer ticket" now lets eat the fatted Oxen of potluck.

They are genrally totally ignorant of the faith. To them the 1st book of the bible is Matthew. These people/churches will turn off anybody to Christainity!

I advise you take them to Messianic Church. If not give them a link to a good one with online teachings. I highly recommend Shuvah Israel in Irvine Calif.

Just keep them away from the Pseudo Carnal Beougoise so called "Christians" The Ricky Warren,Joel Ostein, Joyce Myers, ME TOOs! GROSS!!!

I am a gentile believer since 1983 and have been friends with this Jewish woman for 3 years now.

I let my light shine, and I speak of the wonderful things that God has done in my life, and I love her just as she is.

She's very domineering and opinated and mocks me when I talk about God or Jesus, it's okay--I let her.

I would say LOVE that person and let them see the love of God flowing through you.

Be a witness of God's love, don't witness until the Holy Spirit opens a door for you to do so...love on them. They need to see the Love of God flowing in a Christians life before they will believe anything about Jesus being the Messiah.

//How does one share the gospel of Jesus Christ to a Jewish person?//
Same as anyone.
Under this dispensation of the Gospel of grace, the Jew comes to Christ in the same manner as the Gentile.
Gal.3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
---michael_e on 10/10/10


You can give your testimony & if you show your example in your daily life of how God has guided you then that is a start. then you can dive into the OT scriptures if they show an interest.
---candice on 10/10/10


"How does one share the gospel of Jesus Christ to a Jewish person?"
With Love, Patience, and Respect. What I found to be most important is to share O.T. prophesies concerning the Messiah's coming, and their undeniable fulfillment in the person of Jesus. I would start the conversation by asking them to consider the quoted words of Jesus "You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life, and these are they which testify of Me." If they still refuse to believe that He is Who He claimed to be, I leave them in peace, remembering that some are simply blinded, and "God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear, unto this day."

To Whosoever Has An Ear To Hear?

Brethren, Though we're free from all men, make yourself servant unto all, that you might gain the more.

When preaching the gospel of Christ, make it without charge that you abuse not our power in the gospel ~ And unto the Jews became as a Jew, that you might gain the Jews... To the weak became I as weak, that you might gain the weak.

We're made all things to all men, that we might by all means Save some.
