"I just don't know how to talk to Jewish people!"

Posted by Abraham Sandler , 11 April 2013 · 1060 views

Many people have come to me and said these words, "I just don't know how to talk to Jewish people!" We are providing an opportunity in the Metropolitan District for believers to receive training at our seminar: JETS: Jewish Evangelism Training Seminar, on April 20, 2013 at the New York Chinese Alliance Church in lower Manhattan. The day-long JETS costs $10 and includes lunch, training materials and other resources. You will learn: about the beliefs of Judaism, show how to answer Jewish objections to Messiah Jesus, and share how to reach Jewish people in your community.

Lost people matter to God. He wants them found.

There is an unreached, under evangelized, Gospel resistant people group right on our doorstep. Three and a half million of these people live in the Metropolitan District of the C&MA. No doubt you are neighbors to, work with or know some of them. They speak our language, dress like us, have a good education, but have not heard the Gospel of Jesus in a way that they can understand and receive it. They are often ostracized, persecuted, and made the butt of many insulting jokes. They have their own religion and culture and resist Christ and Christianity. Less than .3 of one percent (three tenths) of these people know Jesus as their Savior. Often when they come to faith in Jesus they are rejected by friends and family as traitors. Some are physically attacked, some lose their jobs, and some have their spouses and children leave them. Some families have a funeral for them and consider them dead. These people who live among us, but we are afraid to witness to them, or, we don’t know what to say to their objections. These people are the Jewish people. They are lost, they matter to God and He wants them found. Come and learn how to witness to them in a sensitive and fruitful way.

In Genesis 12:1-3, God gives a number of unconditional promises or blessings to Abraham and his descendants. Among them are “you shall be a blessing and I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse.” (See also Numbers 24:9) Hudson Taylor, missionary to China, would send a check to a missionary to the Jewish people in England every January 1. On the bottom of the check he would write “Romans 1:16, to the Jew first.” Taylor was blessed as he blessed Israel.

The C&MA was birthed with the thought of the priority of blessing Israel and bringing the Gospel to the Jewish people. In the program for the formation of the C&MA in 1897 are the headings “Our work for Israel and the Heathen World.” “The Jew First.” Prophecy tells us that in the last days more and more Jewish people will believe in Yeshua/Jesus and be saved. There are over 15-20 million unsaved, unreached Jewish people in the world. Over three million Jewish people live within the Metropolitan District. Many are within your reach. We need to reach as many as possible. We invite you to join with us to “Bless Israel and you will be blessed.”
