You heard how God transformed him to be a mighty witness for Jesus among Jewish people in the last episode, and now Glenn is back to give some very solid Biblical and experiential wisdom about how you (yes, YOU) can be a bold witness to Jews in your sphere of influence in particular, and to all people in general. Glenn clarifies 10 myths that many Christians believe when it comes to witnessing to their Jewish friends:
1.) Jewish people must know the Old Testament a lot better than I do.
2.) Don’t most Jewish people believe in God (and Heaven/Hell/Sin)?
3.) Aren’t Jewish people still waiting for the Messiah?
4.) Aren’t Orthodox Jews harder to reach than more secular Jews?
5.) I’m a Gentile, so I’m at a disadvantage trying to reach Jewish people.
6.) With Jewish people shouldn’t you witness from the Old Testament?
7.) I’m afraid if I say the wrong thing, I will offend my Jewish friend.
8.) Before I tell him about Messiah, shouldn’t I gain the friendship of the Jewish person I want to evangelize?
9.) My pastor says Jewish people already have a covenant and can get to Heaven without having to believe in Jesus.
10.) My Jewish friend hates Jews for Jesus – should I avoid that ministry?
It is encouraging to see the fulfillment of God's promises in Scripture come to pass right before our very eyes. He promised he would keep a remnant of his people for himself that would be preserved throughout all time. Messianic Jews like Glenn are living proof of that promise, and it is wonderful to see the ministry he is doing among Jews and Gentiles alike.
