Filling tool boxes
August 9, 2013

Each missionary trainee arrives with his/her set of skills, but none of us come fully prepared for the range of tasks expected of a Jews for Jesus missionary. I have the privilege and the pleasure of watching newer missionaries sharpen and add to their skills as they fill their "ministry tool boxes." Most recently, my […]

Comparing Evangelism to Farming
May 1, 2013

Jerry was a successful businessman whose wealth had afforded him a comfortable life in the northern suburbs of Chicago. He was also a prominent member of the Jewish community. When he was in his 70s, Jerry retired and handed over his company to his son. That’s when we met and began getting together weekly to […]

What is Broadsiding?
April 29, 2013

In Jews for Jesus we refer to handing out our gospel tracts (tri-fold, easy-to-read pamphlets) as broadsiding. But I have noticed that broadsiding has its special features in various cities. So “what is broadsiding” can depend on where one is broadsiding. For example, broadsiding in Moscow differs radically from broadsiding in Odessa. When broadsiding in […]

Passover Video in Golders Green
February 26, 2013

I was excited as I headed to Golders Green with fellow missionary Simon Lissak. We were about to engage with people in a different way and, at the same time, produce content to share on the web. How? We planned to film people as we interviewed them about Passover. Not only would we have the […]

When you think of a “cuppa” in London, is tea the first thing that comes to mind? Then it may surprise you to hear that Simon Lissak’s ministry is percolating over cups of coffee. Pray that those to whom he’s reaching out will soon have their cups overflowing—with the joy of knowing Jesus! Simon says […]

Israel Among the Nations Redux
November 1, 2009

British Historian Arnold J. Toynbee had a social Darwinian theory concerning the rise and inevitable fall of all nations, including Israel. In his seminal ten-volume work, A Study of History, the esteemed scholar reflected on the continuing existence of the Jewish nation despite 2000 years without a homeland. He concluded that the Jewish nation was […]

Persistent or Pushy
March 1, 2009

Have you ever felt torn between your desire to tell someone about Jesus, and a fear of being too pushy? Or maybe someone expressed interest in your beliefs, then backed away, leaving you to wonder whether or not you should pursue the subject. Most of us don’t want to be pushy any more than we […]

Messianic Prophecy: Are we using it for all it’s worth?
May 15, 2008

That’s Jesus,” he admitted, flashing me a ‘you-got-me-there’ kind of grin. I had been studying Isaiah 53 with Uri, an Israeli now living in Manhattan’s trendy Upper West Side. He had just uttered the very words I had hoped to hear! Carefully, he reread the passage in Hebrew and confirmed, “There cannot be any doubt—Isaiah […]

Praise God for Faithful Volunteers
June 1, 2007
Author: Cyril Gordon

I arrived in Los Angeles in 2000 to serve as a full-time missionary with Jews for Jesus and one of the first things I realized was that we missionaries are few in number. That meant that in order to make the Messiahship of Jesus an unavoidable issue for our Jewish people, we were going to […]

Israel Probe Campaign
May 1, 2007

Here are some of the things that happened during the intensive, week- long outreach. We learned that the police really do not know what to make of us. One campaigner had three policemen tell him three completely different things about handing out tracts. The first said, You are allowed to hand out your pamphlets, the […]

What Does It Take for a Jewish Person to Come to Christ?
August 1, 2002
Author: Moishe Rosen

People often ask how we bring a Jewish person to Christ. The real question is, how does God do it? And the answer is, Any way He wants!” I think of a fellow named Lou, a real estate man whose wife had prayed for his salvation for years. Lou’s mother was dying and he realized […]

Dialogue Across the Seas
November 1, 1998
Author: Stephen Katz

My previous article, The Desert Hasn’t Blossomed Yet sparked several interesting responses. We enjoy the letters of appreciation but it’s also good to know when people take exception to what we say. After all, Havurah is for our family in Messiah—and what Jewish family doesn’t argue and dispute now and then? We thought you might […]

Unless the Lord Had Been Our Help…

It’s June of ’92, and our Jews for Jesus team of 20 board the British Airways plane from London to Israel. Our faces show a mixture of excitement and apprehension. We are about to spend two months on a moshav (a farm/hotel) outside of Jerusalem. From this base we will do evangelism and take courses […]

He’s Not Clowning Around
May 1, 1998
Author: Lyn Bond

Henry Morse takes the Word of God very seriously. Yet while the Great Benafuchi thinks of himself as an evangelist, through his circus ministry he acts and looks like a clown. Henry believes that the use of humor is important in getting across the Good News: “When people are laughing, at least we know they’re […]

Will the Circle Be Unbroken?
December 1, 1996
Author: Stephen Katz

I was standing near the student union at the University of Illinois watching a hellfire and brimstone preacher condemn the crowd that had gathered to tease him. "Fornicators!" he yelled at them. "You’re all going straight to hell!" I watched this exchange for several minutes and then the preacher did something unexpected. He called on […]

Lightning Rods for Yeshua

Not long ago, a pastor from an American church spent two weeks with the Moscow-based Jews for Jesus team.

A wise man once said, Opposition brings opportunity.” If that is true, we’re getting a lot of “opportunities” here in Dallas/Fort Worth. It may be an exaggeration to say that every time we go out to hand out gospel literature we get shut down, but that’s the way it feels subjectively. We’ve been hampered downtown, […]
