I know a lot of Christians who have a heart for the Jewish people. They pray and long to see them come to know Jesus as Messiah. Recently, with the direction of teaching the Lord has been taking me on, I often wonder two things:
- They know Jesus as Lord, but do they know him as the Jewish Messiah?
- Do they want the Jewish people to accept him as Savior? Or to convert to Christianity?
The more I read books and articles by Messianic Jews, the more I study the history between the Jews and the church, the more I realize we Gentiles have a lot to learn about who Jesus really is, and how to convey the message of salvation to His chosen people.
What do you think?
