Answers

  1. False. The Masoretic Text is the standard Hebrew text of the Old Testament, established in the early medieval period by Jewish scribes known as the Masoretes.
  2. False. There’s no evidence that people from a particular branch of Judaism are more or less likely to come to faith—though in some cases, Orthodox Jews take Scripture more seriously, and that’s always a help in seeing the truth about Jesus.
  3. True. The Jewish version has all the same books as your Old Testament, but some are in a different order, and some of the verses are numbered differently as well.
  4. False…for now. Keep praying!
  5. False. But we do believe the shofar (ram’s horn) will be heard in Israel when Jesus returns.
  6. False. Any truthful and compassionate way you find to tell Jewish people about Jesus is correct.
  7. True…Hallelujah!
