Witness Through The Old Testement

Is there a series of Scripture Verses (similar to the Roman Road) that would help me lead a 30 year old Jew to Christ? He is confused and refuses to hear from the New Testament. He is asking and listening to me but I want to use scripture as I go.

What is it that tells you this is right. Do you really belive that what religion you are matters, as long as you are seeking God? I see religion as a large mountain that everyone seeks to climb. I don't belive there is a wrong path to take, unless you are not climbing at all. I think that you need to find a series of scripture verses to help you see the light. I don't intend to be vain about my opinion and please don't be offended. Jesus was a jew and God gave him a kingdom.

You could prayerfully take this person to Isaiah 53, and show them the "suffering messiah". The Jews do not read this portion of scripture, as it contradicts what they think their Messiah is going to be and do.

Joan, Most Jews (unless Orthodox) don't think of Scripture as being God's Word. But if the Spirit is working in him, you might be able to interest him in DANIEL 9:25-26 where it states that Messiah would come before Jerusalem was destroyed; which shows right away that His coming wouldn't stop the Romans from doing that! And if so, who was this Messiah? (Write me for links!)

paul james, the reason its not read in synagogues is because they believe it speaks of their messiah (we know it does) but they don't read it til their messiah comes and so they wait....and wait.....and vain.

Isaiah 53 is the chapter through which many Jews have found Jesus. Sadly, because of this many Rabbis do not read this chapter at all and do not wish their members to do so because they can see that it really does teach that Jesus is the Messiah. Jews are still waiting for Him to come. Encourage your friend to read it and also to question why it is not read in the synagogue.

Joan, I knew a jew who became a christian and a very evangelical one. Yet,he told me that even when he was confronted with all those scriptures in the OT and NT as Eloy has done such a great job with, he still resisted. My advise is for you to find scriptures for yourself in Isaiah, ezekiel and Jeremiah where God promises that He will take away the hearts of stone and replace it with hearts of flesh. This is to his chosen people the Jews, and so with prayer and faith you will pray him into the kingdom.

There are several Web sites for "Jews For Jesus". They might be very helpful.

Although not Scripture I would recommend you get books by Michael Esses. He is a Christian that used to be a Rabi. I think his first one was "Michael, Michael, Why Do You Hate Me" which is his encounter with Jesus, followed by "Jesus in Geneses" and "Jesus In Exodus" I found them to be very enlightening.

. the book of Matthew was written specifically to the Jews to show that Jesus is their messiah. anyone who can't see all the old testament verses pointing to him, is just refusing to accept the obvious.

There was a great Jew who once said, "I planted, Apollos wateered, but God gives the increase." (See 1 Cor 1)

Just plant the seed, be a friend. And if you don't know an answer, have the courage and grace to admit it to him!
