The work of Jews for Jesus in Budapest has literally just begun! Why Budapest? Here are a few good reasons.
Our people in Budapest have the need and the right to hear the Good News of Y'shua from us, their fellow Jews.
It's no secret that anti-Semitism is very much on the rise, especially in countries like Hungary. That means that despite the possibility of increased danger, our evangelistic presence on the streets of Budapest will also be profoundly enhanced. Who will be able to ignore the sight of Jews proclaiming the Gospel without fear or shame? Those of us serving in Budapest are confident that that as we continue to proclaim our faith in an open way, then many of our people will find the courage to talk to us openly about Y'shua.
And what about the anti-Semites? They need to hear the Gospel as well. They need to hear about God's love, about God's readiness to forgive, and about the availability of God's gift of eternal life. Let them hear this Good News from the lips of us Jews.
Along with our weekly street outreaches and one-on-ne visits, we put on a yearly evangelistic outreach as part of the Jews for Jesus "Life from the Dead" European campaigns. These special campaigns involve carrying out evangelistic outreach in key European cities that were ravaged by the Holocaust. By appearing on the streets of cities such as Warsaw, Berlin and Budapest in Jews for Jesus t-shirts, and by standing together with local and foreign volunteers, we are testifying of God's amazing love – not only for our own people, but for the descendants of those who persecuted us. What proof, that the message of the Gospel works! We also put on special events such as Passover Banquets, Hannukah celebrations and services for the High Holy Days.
Here in Hungary, Jews for Jesus enjoys the fellowship and friendship of evangelistic ministries and churches such as: Operation Mobilisation, Youth With A Mission, Calvary Chapel, Campus Crusade for Christ, Lutheran, Baptist, Pentecostal and non-affiliated churches.
We have produced a wide range of bilingual (English/Hungarian) tracts, as well as more extensive materials such as "Questions and Answers about Jews for Jesus" and "Jewish Doctors meet the Great Physician" as well as a dubbed version of the film 'Survivor Stories'. All resources are produced in Hungarian (unless otherwise stated) We send out a quarterly news/prayerletter which is available in English, German and Hungarian. Please see our website for more information on resources (in Hungarian).
