When you have the peace and purpose that only reconciliation with God can bring, you want to share it, right? But it’s not always easy to talk about something as personal and important as your faith—especially with people who are likely to dismiss it as “fine for you… but not for me.” If you wish […]
Some declarations of love are not exactly honest and may actually be harmful—even if that’s not what would-be lovers intend.
Our Multitudes gallery in Tel Aviv portrayed Messianic prophecy through art and Hebrew text.
While the Rio games were going on, gospel outreach was going strong in our London branch.
Next week a secular gallery will be featuring painted illustrations of the Gospel of Matthew. Read how you can be praying.
This week and next our Odessa team is celebrating 25 years of ministry in the most appropriate way possible.
David Brickner explains how people can unknowingly create competition between ministries when cooperation is key
Did you ever walk away after sharing your faith with someone and wonder, "What just happened?"
It’s encouraging to read how God has worked in other people’s lives, but is there a message for you as well? We hope your answer is yes! For example, did you read Lisa’s story or watch her journey of faith video? Did you notice how she talked about the “parade of Christians” that were coming […]
Earlier this year David Brickner wrote an article titled, “Launchers,” inspired by William Wilberforce and his zeal to find ways to “launch” into gospel conversations. Jews for Jesus has been using our own style of “launchers” for many years. Maybe you know from your own life and witness, these opportunities can be found everywhere!
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 […]
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 […]
“How do I have faith? Am I supposed to believe in something that is unbelievable?” Those were questions Eugene asked at the point of spiritual capitulation. Let me back up and explain. It all started more than 25 years ago. Eugene is the son of Romanian immigrants to the United States. His origins are reflected […]
The following is excerpted from an archived reflection by Moishe Rosen. You can read the full article here. “[Today’s] church tends to regard its congregations and religious gatherings the way the ancient Hebrews regarded the Temple at Jerusalem—as God’s official headquarters. This inaccurate interpretation leads to ineffectual methods of evangelism. No church building or church […]
In her 2004 bestseller, Eats, Shoots and Leaves, UK author Lynne Truss laments the demise of good punctuation. Her title is based on a joke about a panda who eats in a restaurant, then shoots the patrons. As the panda heads towards the exit, a surviving waiter, surveying the carnage, asks the panda: “Why did […]
Because the Lord has granted me a ministry to several Jewish people who survived the Nazi Holocaust, I am doing my best to learn about and better understand the loss, grief, guilt, and trauma that they suffered. Last week, Oded, a close friend, and I visited the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial in Jerusalem. –> Because the […]
Alan was spiritually hungry. He wanted me to know that he strongly identified as a Jew, yet he was not finding answers to spiritual questions that haunted and preoccupied him. I spent quite a bit of time with Alan. I told him that there were no easy answers to his questions. I shared my story […]
Please pray for:
The spiritual forces that want to invade and gnaw at gospel ministries like ours to be neutralized.
Salvation for Tami and her husband in Israel.
I will never forget the first time I handed out gospel tracts on the streets of Tel Aviv some 28 years ago. I was more than a little nervous but gratified that most people were taking the tracts. Suddenly a religious man in typical Hassidic garb stopped, read the first few lines of the tract […]
Karl deSouza just explained how part of a missionary’s job is to discover the real “question behind the question.” That’s not always easy, but here are a few hopefully-helpful-hints. When is a question not a question? If a person has absolutely no interest in your answer, they are not really asking you a question. So, […]
Believers in Jesus are bound by the same frailties as the rest of humanity, yet we are not to mirror behaviors that are considered “normal” by the world. We are to reflect a different standard. Yeshua enshrined this expectation when He said, “By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have […]
Who are your “heroes of the faith”? One of mine is Jonathan Edwards. Edwards was a pastor in Massachusetts back in the 1700’s and is closely associated with what is called America’s First Great Awakening. Although the nature and scope of that Awakening has been debated over the years, there can be no doubt that […]
Did you know that Budapest has the largest indigenous Jewish population of any city in Central or Eastern Europe? About 100,000 Jewish people reside in Budapest—plus thousands of Jewish tourists come each year to visit the Neolog synagogue on Dohany Street (the largest synagogue in Europe), the Jewish museum and the former wartime ghetto—as well […]
This article is in response to requests from readers that we continue to include Moishe’s writings following his home-going. This article originally appeared in our newsletter in November, 2000. Far be it from me to disparage any kind of evangelism. But I have noticed that in some circles, “lifestyle” or “friendship evangelism” has become a […]
Did you know that Jews for Jesus has led five to ten times as many non-Jews to faith in Christ as Jews? It may be one of our best-kept secrets (more like a little-known fact since we really aren’t trying to keep it a secret.) During a recent Jews for Jesus street witnessing campaign in […]
