When is it okay to share your faith in Jesus? Are there prerequisites? What about earning the right to speak into people’s lives? These are great questions, and we’ve given them alot of thought. Please take a few minutes to check out our point of view.
Jesus Christ warned us, “For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels” (Mark 8:38).
“Now when they bring you to the synagogues and magistrates and authorities, do not worry about how or what you should answer, or what you should say. For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.” —Luke 12:11-12 You might not ever have to answer for your faith […]
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 […]
Nowadays no one gets too far without personal identification (ID). Imagine if, rather than simply glancing at our driver’s licenses or passports, people in airports, border checkpoints and even the local grocery stores actually scanned our IDs. Now imagine waiting in line for airport security finally getting to the front of the line where you […]
Did you ever think you knew something … but when you thought about it more, you had to wonder? What about being Christlike? I’ve prayed that the Lord would help me to be Christlike. I’ve admonished people to be Christlike. Yet, I never asked myself, What does that word Christlike really mean? How would I […]
When I graduated from Bible school, my first assignment with the American Board of Missions to the Jews (now Chosen People Ministries) was in Los Angeles. We had a mission house at 5020 Pico Boulevard. I lived there with my family, and I also had a small office there. We had Bible studies and fellowship […]
Of the three Behold Your God Israel campaigns we’ve already completed, the opposition to our last one (May ’09) was the most violent we’ve experienced in Israel thus far. Our Jews for Jesus staff and volunteers were kicked and punched more in Rishon, Rehovot and Ramala, than we have been on previous campaigns. One missionary, […]
The first time that I heard the term Evangelism Explosion,” I was confused. It seemed to me that explosions cause destruction. Then, I pictured another kind of explosion: that which takes place in the motor block of a diesel engine or a gasoline motor. The explosion in the chamber pushes a piston, thereby moving a […]
Don’t you love the smell of a new car, the sight of a newborn baby or the prospect of a New Year? Newness is often so appealing and can fill us with hope. Nevertheless, newness also has its drawbacks. It’s easy to be enticed by the newest improved version of one thing or another, not […]
Did you know that Christmas can be a very lonely time for us Jewish people? All the advertisements, shopping, decorations and caroling remind us that we live in lands whose cultures are not our own. And so, as we watch our non-Jewish friends and neighbors immerse themselves in all the customs and traditions of Christmas, […]
Ed: We hope you know that while we are making Jesus an unavoidable issue to our Jewish people worldwide, we do not avoid preaching the Word to Gentiles!

Most of us know unbelievers, whether Jewish or Gentile, who are such good people that we have difficulty believing that when they die, they will not enter the Kingdom of God. Everything in our finite minds wants to assure us that, somehow, God will make an exception for these people. We remind ourselves that we […]
Are good things happening in your life? Are you eager to tell others how Yeshua has redeemed you, but uncertain about speaking in public? Try out the following suggestions: Plan more, talk less. Organize your thoughts by writing out what you want to say—but do not read it. Then jot down a few notes to […]
Here are some rules I use and recommend for one-on-one Bible studies with unbelievers: Insist that they meet in your home. The reference books you may need are at your fingertips, and you can control what happens. You can turn off the phone and ignore the doorbell. On someone else’s turf you cannot control the […]
