Evidence for the Messiah: ministering to Jewish believers

How do we as Christians reach out to those who are Jewish? Today we’re asking an expert! Jacob Prasch was once a Jewish agnostic who valued science and became very disillusioned about organized religion and the Truth about the world and Scripture. He went on a quest to try to find evidence against the words of Jesus, and found an overwhelming amount of evidence for Christ the Son of God! Today Jacob is the director of Moriel Ministries, and reaches out to Jewish believers with the Truth of the Messiah.

Moriel Ministries is an evangelistic outreach to people of other faiths, beginning with the Jews and nominal (non-evangelical) Christians, such as Roman Catholics and liberal Protestants. We also hold seminars on Messianic apologetics, Islamic evangelism, and cult evangelism. The ministry seeks to plant Messianic fellowships where none exist. These are “fellowships” and not congregations, designed to evangelize Jews and to provide a practical way for Jewish believers and those who are called to the Jews to preserve and express their identity in Yeshua as Messiah.

One Response to “Evidence for the Messiah: ministering to Jewish believers”

    What is a layperson/non-Bible scholar to do??

    Here is our dilemma: Every Christian Old Testament Bible scholar, apologist, pastor, and priest on the planet says that the Old Testament prophesies the birth and death of Jesus of Nazareth as the Jewish Messiah (ben David). However, every (non-messianic) Jewish "Old Testament" scholar and rabbi adamantly states that there is not one single prophecy in the Hebrew Bible about Jesus.

    So who are we poor ignorant saps to believe?

    In lieu of spending the next 10 years becoming a fluent Hebrew-speaking Old Testament scholar yourself, I would suggest using some good ol' common sense. Who is more likely to be correct:

    1.) Jewish sages and rabbis who have spent their entire lives immersed in Jewish culture, the Jewish Faith, the Hebrew language, and the Hebrew Bible—for the last 2,000 years…or… 2.) seminary graduates from Christian Bible colleges in Dallas, Texas and Lynchburg, Virginia?

    Sorry, Christian scholars, but using good ol' common sense, I have to go with the Jewish scholars. And Jewish scholars say that Christian translators deliberately mistranslated and distorted the Hebrew Bible to say things in the Christian Bible that is never said in the original Hebrew—for the purpose of inventing prophesies into which they could "shoehorn" Jesus!

    I recommend that every Christian read the bombshell book, "Twenty-Six Reasons Why Jews Don't Believe in Jesus" by orthodox Jewish author, Asher Norman. You will be blown away by the evidence that this Jewish author presents that confirms why Jews have said the following for the last two thousand years: "Jesus of Nazareth was NOT the Messiah."
