Our Stories | Doctors

Whoever heard of a Jewish doctor? Quite frankly, a lot of people. Believe it or not, quite a few of them have found new life in their Messiah, Jesus. Examine their journeys of faith here.

Also don’t miss our book: Jewish Doctors Meet the Great Physician

You will love these first-person accounts of ten Jewish doctors who came to know Jesus as their Messiah, and who are excited for other Jews to hear the gospel as well. The book also includes stories of Jewish people who turned to Jesus during a medical crisis, as well as essays on the problem of pain and suffering and, of course, on why Jesus is the Jewish Messiah.

Dr. Jack Sternberg, oncologist:
“Undaunted, I visited with rabbis, hoping they could show me the fallacies of the case for Jesus….Each effort I made to hear something to dissuade me seemed to strengthen the growing belief that Jesus truly was the Messiah.”

Dr. Peter Greenspan, obstetrician:
