What Every Christian Should Know About The Jewish People

Matt 23:39 For I say to you, In no way shall you see Me from now on, until you say, "Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord." Psa. 118:26


This is what Jesus said to the Jews after He had wept over Jerusalem crying out how He desired nothing less than to gather her children under His wings like a hen gathers her chicks under her wings. But the Sanhedrin was not willing for that to happen. How deeply Jesus desired them to be willing.

I watched a Day of Discovery program in 2009 which had a Messianic Jew featured. He explained that Jews are ingrained with so much of the Old Testament without the benefit of any knowledge of the New Testament. This is one reason why Jews cannot accept Jesus as the Son of God. He explained so much else as well. The Jews have a perception that the Messiah must be perfect and without sin, yet Jesus went to the cross and willingly accepted the sin of the world. This is a huge roadblock to their understanding.

Sheryl Young has written a book called What Every Christian Should Know About The Jewish People. It sounds so fascinating and is on my list of books to read. I am so excited about this book that I am posting this before I read it because I want you to read it, too.

Why is it imperative for every Christian to gain a fresh, love-filled perspective toward the Jewish people today? What makes a person consider him or herself Jewish? And the question usually on every Christian's mind: Do Jewish people really need to be “converted”? In Sheryl Young’s book, “What Every Christian Should Know About the Jewish People,” are answers to these questions and many more! Come discover the key to building bridges between the only two faiths who believe in the one true God.

Even if you don’t know any Jewish people, maybe you've wondered why it's so hard for them to accept the Gospel. Or you want to know how our two religions can work together in these times of renewed anti-Semitism and anti-Christianity. Who better to explain this than a Jewish person who has found Jesus as her Lord and Savior?

When Sheryl's husband gave his life to Jesus, she thought, "How can I, a girl from a Jewish family, be married to a Christian?" She set out to prove the Gospel wrong. But the moment she really studied the Old Testament and dared to compare it with the New, everything changed. She fell in love with “Yeshua,” saw her Jewish heritage with new appreciative eyes, and realized the two could fit perfectly together.

Sheryl has been a “Jewish believer in Jesus” since 1987. She wrote this book for Christians to answer the many questions Christians have asked her over the years about Judaism, the Jewish peoples’ culture, faith, and why Jewish people are hesitant to accept the Gospel message of Christ as their true Messiah.

Thanks so much for your enthusiasm about this topic, Gina! May more Christians come to love and understand the Jewish people as a way to become better witnesses for our Messiah.

This is my prayer as well!!! May all Jews become like Bartimaeus--born blind but made to see.
