Jews for Jesus has curated approximately 40 of the most helpful messianic prophecies along with their New Testament fulfillments.
Aaron Trank’s conclusions may surprise some. But what does the text itself say? There are in fact valid reasons to see applications of Isaiah 53 to Israel as well as to the Messiah. First, Isaiah often identifies the servant as Israel, yet in some way as apart from Israel. In Isaiah 41:8, 44:1, 44:21, 45:4 […]
If anyone was a skeptic about Jews believing in Jesus, I was. Born to second-generation Jewish American parents in Brooklyn, I experienced much anti-Semitism growing up in the 1950s and ’60s. Since my persecutors weren’t Jewish, I assumed they were Christian. When I was fourteen, there was talk that a certain Jewish family in my neighborhood had converted to Christianity. I was filled with disgust. How could Jews do such a thing?

Modern Judaism eschews the idea that a man can be God, and this is often cited as an objection to the messiahship of Jesus. But Zechariah forces us to consider the validity of this objection, as the prophet repeatedly refers to the Messiah-king figure as Lord.” Zechariah 14:9: “The Lord will be king over the […]
Can the God of Israel be left out of our hope for peace?
In his article, Bruce Nahin mentions that it wasn’t one specific argument or prophecy that convinced him that Jesus is the Messiah. But when all of the evidence is considered, it is hard to dismiss. Following are some of the prophecies that have persuaded Bruce Nahin and thousands of others that Jesus is who he […]
Explores the passage of Jewish Scripture the rabbis deemed too dangerous to keep in the regular synagogue calendar readings.
The Jewish prophets gave some very specific information about the Messiah not often discussed in synagogue.
their faces I formed so that mine they would seek ears to listen for the Word I would speak eyes to see, minds to understand all they required I made with my Hand the Law and the Prophets for centuries foretold the birth of a baby begotten of old in words unencoded, with language so […]
When we see Yeshua in heaven, certainly Moshe Rabeynu will be there too, because he was the one who knew and foretold his coming and trusted in him.
