Joseph and Sarah, our staff members in Brooklyn, have started hosting Israeli travelers in their home in addition to their regular ministry. A few months ago, Levi,* a young man from Jerusalem who works in the tech industry, came to stay one Friday night. Although he is not religious, he had developed a Bible app for one of his clients, and he was proud to show it to Joseph. In turn, Joseph showed Levi the Bible apps that he uses and some of his favorite Jewish and Christian commentaries.
At dinner, Levi was surprised that his hosts knew the Jewish blessings. This naturally led to a discussion about their faith and the next morning, Levi went to their Messianic congregation’s service. Later that day, Joseph explained to Levi what the New Testament teaches and how they live as New Covenant believers in the Messiah.
Levi actually resonated with what was being said! As Levi left that evening, he gladly accepted a New Testament and a copy of Isaiah 53 Explained— both in Hebrew. Pray that Levi will read the Bible and come to saving faith in Jesus, the Jewish Messiah.
