Watch Lucy's Story

My father is Jewish and grew up in a mostly secular Jewish family, while my mom was a secular Catholic. We celebrated Hanukkah and Christmas and were exposed to a lot of New Age spirituality.

Then, my mom came to faith in Jesus. I started going to church with her on Sundays while going to temple with my dad on Saturdays. This led to a spiritual confusion I had to figure out as I got older.

What Surprised Me

Sahar

Sahar's Story

“I did a search for “Christianity” and found the New Testament in Hebrew. I expected it to be an antisemitic book with stories about Santa Claus! But within the first few pages, I realized that I was reading a book written by Jews about Jews, living here in Israel. That really surprised me!”

Shoshanna Weinisch

Shoshannah’s Story

“I was fascinated by Jesus and asked God to give me a sign if Jesus was who I had been searching for. Slowly, I saw the mercy of God removing old habits and shame from my life—he did the work I couldn’t do by my own strength.”

Simon's Story

“I decided to read the New Testament, and I was very surprised. I read through the book of Matthew and by the end, I had tears in my eyes. It was not what I had expected. I couldn’t find anything I disagreed with. I became upset and asked myself, “How come I’ve not read this before?”

Adel

Adel's Story

“Jesus, the Messiah? How could this be true? How could a guy come along, people follow him, and that became a new religion? I’d been searching so high and deep, this couldn’t possibly be the answer. I didn’t want it to be.”
