Recently, our staff in Philadelphia was on Temple University’s campus. They were sharing all day about God with non-Jewish and Jewish students – including a few from Israel. They write: “We had many in-depth conversations about prophecies in the Hebrew Scriptures that point to Yeshua as the Messiah. It was fantastic!” At the end of the day, they met an older Christian woman. This dear woman had been trying to share about the Lord with her Jewish friend for many years, but wanted to do it in a way that her friend could better understand. Part of the mission of Chosen People Ministries is to educate and “help fellow believers” to more effectively love, evangelize, and reach the Jewish people. Our team gave the woman a variety of resources, and they told her to focus on Messianic prophecies, such as Isaiah 53. Two days later, our staff received a phone call from the Christian woman saying she was able to share in “her Jewish friend’s own language” and style! Wonderfully, this 90-year old Jewish lady believed and embraced Yeshua as her own Messiah!
Chosen People Ministries exists to pray for, evangelize, disciple, and serve Jewish people everywhere and to help fellow believers do the same. The mission was founded in Brooklyn, New York in 1894 by Rabbi Leopold Cohn, a Hungarian Jewish immigrant with a zeal to share the knowledge of Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah with God’s chosen people.
